  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch! This deal won’t be offered again for a while so 🏃🏾‍♀️ & look for this pic. #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames
  • Why play outside when you can have @townctratcobb as your playground? #ad We recently enjoyed a family fun day of playing and shopping at Town Center at Cobb, then dinner and a drink in a cool light bulb container.

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day. Town Center at Cobb has great kid-friendly events and special offers for Family program members.

  • I’m ready for #backtoschool! New merch available for @supermomculture today! I call this my Momiana hoodie in neon green! I also have baseball caps, beanies, gray tees and sweats! Carpool will never be the same! Link in profile! #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames
  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday
  • THANK YOU! You guys are awesome! All the kind words and cheers are appreciated. I was just talking about doing things when you’re scared.  I was low key scared to change my blog that’s why I put it of for years. I did it and I lived.  Don’t let fear stop you. Thank you guys for rocking with me over the years and hello to the new folks!

Happy Birthday Mamanista

One Time for The Birthday Chick

October 8, 2018

This is the BIG one!  I swear I was just 26, now we’re here.  I thank God for all his blessing and covering me these 40 years of life. I’m a little emotional celebrating this birthday.  I know you’re probably thinking I’m having a hard time adjusting to 40 (well kinda) but I am so happy.  I am happy that I have health, love, and friends.  I know where God brought me from…. I could shout right now.

I kicked off my birthday weekend with going to see my favorite group, Wutang Clan at the A3C festival with my girl Danielle and Kia.  I got my entire life and it took me back to memories of when I first discovered the group.  I felt like this would be my last chance to see the group without looking like someone’s grandma in the crowd.

Sunday, Mister organized a birthday lunch and invited my girlfriends and their families. We had such a good time and the kids had a blast.

Today will be a laid back day.  I’ll be heading to the gym and a massage later.  I shouldn’t but I may cook dinner tonight because I’ve eating so much junk this weekend, my body is craving a home cooked meal…. and Mister does not cook.

It would be easy to list all my accomplishments in my life but I am most grateful for my mental health and happiness.  As I reflect on my life, I am reminded of the dark times and how God protected me and brought me out.  I am truly happy.  Happiness is hard to find because you have to find it within yourself, it doesn’t come from material things.   I learned in my 30s, happiness is a choice and you have to want it to find it.  I will continue to choose happiness. Cheers!

    Happy Birthday, Trina!
    I thoroughly enjoy reading your blogs! I share the same sentiments having a young daughter of my own. Keep up the good work, and enjoy your 40th to the fullest. God Bless-
