  • Every time I attend event like @theprevailingwoman Conf, and share it in my stories, I get dozens of... I should have went. What’s keeping you from going? Are you scared? Too shy (or introverted 😒) ? Money? I’m addressing all of this and how to get the most out of a women’s empowerment event. Link in profile. #sheprevails
  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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

Tidying Up

January 10, 2019

Keeping a tidy and organized home is an ongoing work in progress. Once you get to a point where your home is tidy, it is a glorious feeling. I caught an episode of the new show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. I think it’s great that she is helping to change the families thought process about respecting their home. Feeling anxious or uncomfortable in your home has to be the worse feeling in the world. I do my best to tackle those areas that make me uncomfortable. It’s an ongoing process but I wanted to share with you how I tidied up some of the messy spaces in my home. I linked to each post so you can see how much a HOT mess my before was.

This is my organized laundry room. Laundry rooms become a mess because they are usually a catchall when you don’t know where to put something. I’m happy to share that this system is still working for us and it is still tidy. Click HERE for details. There’s even a video.

I also implemented a system to organize the girls drawers. You can find the details HERE.

The best thing I could have done for my sanity last year was cleaning and organizing under my bathroom sink. This system has been great and my bathroom is still tidy. You can find details HERE.

Under my kitchen sink was out of control. The system I put in place is still working. Click HERE for details and video.

I blame my husband 100% for our previous hot mess of a pantry. He never knows where anything goes so he just puts it in there. This before photos make me cringe. It not as tidy now as it is in the photos but it definitely isn’t like the before photos. This is an ongoing issue. Details HERE.

The main thing that I have learned over years of trying to stay tidy and organized is that you need to have a system. That system includes that every item you own has a “home” in your home. If you find that a system isn’t working for you, you can change it. I had to do that a few times in my closet. You can see it HERE.

I hope this post helps ignite the tidiness within you so you can live your best life.

    I came across the show the other day and I really want to start watching over the weekend! I like to keep the home as organized as possible but I’m sure I have room for improvement… especially when it comes to my clothes. Can wait to see tips I can implement!
