  • Fall porch loading... I want to add some hay stacks, lanterns & maybe more pumpkins but then I’m like, nah looks good enough. If you watched my stories you know i have a long list of projects I’m trying to get done before Thanksgiving. Get ready for the home content.  Some of my projects include but not limited to is transforming Harper’s room into a big girl room, mini master bedroom makeover, new kitchen lights, powder room update and possible a guest bathroom renovation. Oh, I also gotta clean up before my family arrives. My head hurts thinking about it but I’m going to do the best I can.  #teamdoingthemost #heytrinashome
  • Tonight is the season finale of @davidmakesman and I’m on the edge of my seat.  Another important women in David’s life is his gifted class teacher Dr. Woods-Trap. She sees the potential in David and continues to guide him as much as she can at school, his safe haven. Teachers, coaches and mentors  play in important role in our children’s lives.  Peyton has a teacher that looks like her this year and Harper thinks her teachers are family members. I think most of us have a teacher that stands out whether it be elementary or college. I still remember the first teacher that I felt really cared about me.  Sometimes that’s all it takes.

  • It was all good just a week ago. I brought in my birthday in Aruba for my friends wedding last week.  It’s been hard to get back to reality. I realized I’m in desperate need of a time management makeover but I don’t have the time 😩. Now that I’ve started @supermomculture, trying to balance that, life and blog hasn’t been easy.  If you have some time management hacks, please share 😘
  • Let me introduce you to the new learning playground, @tumblesjohnscreek. Harper celebrated her birthday there a couple of weeks ago. Tumbles has Indoor zipline, rock wall, play ground & STEM classes and more! They are the unicorn of indoor playgrounds! Sharing details from our experience on the blog.  They also have a Halloween parents night out.  Details on the blog or visit

  • Thank you @toyotausa for having me at the Culture of Gratitude Brunch celebrating women. Grateful to be in the room with so many awesome Black Women. So inspiring! #toyota #a3cfestival #a3c
  • Is there someone outside of your parents that you were able to confide or look up to when you were growing up? One of my favorite characters on @davidmakesman on @owntv is Mx. Elijah. People like Mx. Elijah, who are unapologetically themselves, can be instrumental as part of the village in a young persons life. Mx. Elijah is one of those people that you can confide in without being judged. My older sisters and my niece have been there for me like Mx. Elijah. They constantly look out for me and are there for me when I need them. It definitely takes a village.  Learn more about Mx. Elijah character on @davidmakesman on Wednesday 9/8c on #OWNTV #davidmakesman #ad
  • Thanking God for another year! These last 6 months have been rough but I thank God for keeping me covered. Celebrate with my by taking advantage of the @supermomculture hoodie sale! Ends tonight. #libraseason
  • Felt cute, might delete later (jokes). Lol 😂 I’ve been wanting to use that caption. Hello from #Aruba 👋🏾. Having a ball celebrating my friend nuptials. This is one lit wedding celebration (watch stories). Service isn’t great so trying to post when I can. Glad I was able to wear this @suakokobetty ensemble one more time before it gets cold. My bow tube top was on the clearance sale at Zara this past spring.
  • Your girls got a birthday coming up (10/8)! I’ll be celebrating in a tropical location this wknd for my friends wedding. I won’t need a hoodie but you guys will 😆.

  • My little fire chief wanted to inform you, along with @nfpadotorg, that #nationalfirepreventionweek is coming Oct 6-13. #NFPA has made it easy to teach kids on all levels about fire safety. Click link in profile for free games, videos and printables to help your kids learn more about fire safety.  You may learn something yourself. I know I did.  Have you discuss a fire safety plan with your kids? #ad
  • When you become a mother, you want the best for your kids.  Watching @davidmakesman on @OWNTV reminds me that no matter how challenging motherhood is, we never give up.  The character Gloria, who is a mother of two boys, is faced challenges trying to raise them on her own. No matter how hard it gets, she continues to work hard and fight for her kids to have a better life.  My mom was a "Gloria", never giving up when faced with challenges while she was trying to break a cycle.  I think we all know or maybe are a "Gloria" and can relate to her story very well! Tune in to the powerful series #DavidMakesMan on OWN on Wednesdays at 9/8c #AD

Prepping Tips for Go RVing

July 10, 2017

I just returned home from a family trip that I never imagined I would be taking. If you follow me on Instagram or SnapChat you saw that we went camping. I’m so blessed that my family got to have this experience. Before I get into details of our RV trip, I wanted to share with you how I prepared. I’m from Chicago originally, a big city and I don’t know the first thing about camping.  With the help of Pinterest and some major planning, I pulled off this amazing summer trip with Go RVing.

1. After the initial shock of “What did I get myself into’’ I went to GoRVing.com to learn more. I looked at what was included in the RV, so I would know what I needed to pack.

2. Research campgrounds. Since this is the first time doing any sort of camping for both me and my husband, we knew we wanted to stay in Georgia. There are a ton of RV campgrounds. We just looked for one that had the best amenities.

3. Head to Pinterest. I headed to Pinterest and searched RVing. Of course, it was information overload. I stumbled upon a few helpful packing lists that I printed out.

4. Break down lists. I broke up my lists into sections. Kitchen, First Aid, bed, bath, and clothing. This helped me to focus on each one to make sure I had everything.

5. Meal plan and prep. Again, I went to Pinterest for meal ideas. I tried to find the easiest meals that I could make in our small kitchen.

6. Head to the dollar store. I’m the kind of person that likes to have everything that I can think of before I leave. I may be one of the few people that can spend $100 in the dollar store. You’d be surprised how many things you can find for any trip.

7. Call the campground. I called the campground to ask every question I could think of. They happily answered all of them.

8. Pack light. I kept everyone to one backpack for the trip. I didn’t even bring makeup. Ok, I brought concealer and a brow pencil.

9. Hair. One thing I knew I wasn’t going to do was be responsible for combing 3 heads of hair while on our RVing trip. The girls wore braids and twist. I wore hats with a bun in the back. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

10. Plan activities. I always try to make a “flexible” schedule before any trip.  Check out your parks’ attractions ahead of time. Bring some board games and cards with you as well.

We may have packed light on the clothing, but I may have gone overboard on the kitchen. Our Type C motorhome had a full kitchen, and I wanted to make sure I made the most of it.  In addition to the kitchen, I made sure I had a first aid kit, bug repellent, and a toolbox.

Now that I feel like an RV pro, I can’t wait for the next trip! I’ll be sharing more from our RVing trip soon! Until then, you can learn more about Go RVing HERE.

Have you ever been RVing or camping? How do you prepare?

    Wow! Thanks for sharing this info. I am in the same bucket as you were….never went camping and wouldn’t have a clue on how to prepare. I know my kids will enjoy doing this one day. Now I have a true process to follow!!
