Today is my birthday. It’s not a super special one, I’m just 31 but considering the state of the nation I am extremely happy and grateful to see this day!! I finally got my hair cut. Something I’ve wanted to do for a couple of years now and I had some friends over for a game night!! It really was a great day!! I had pizza and Patti Labelle’s pie for my cake along with a sour cream cake just in case we needed more. We chatted all night and it was so much fun!! I spent some good time with Jesus and my baby Kobi and had some good conversations with William. It was a great day!!
Can you believe it’s already the 15th of August?! Where has this month gone, better yet where had this year gone?!?! Am I the only one that can hardly believe that this year is already half way over? Man… Just like this year has flown by so has my life… I have gotten so busy I have barely had time to blog about it all so I decided to give you guys a little update via pictures and a synopsis…
SO there you have it… my life thus far… There are things getting ready to happen like school starting, worship team tryouts, a trip to Ohio, and hopefully more focused content on this here blog… I have been putting it off long enough and since I seem to manage my time better when I am in school or working full time that shouldn’t be a problem… thanks for your continued support and readership, I very much appreciate it!!
These last few weeks were full and it’s only gonna continue. We have dear friends coming into town then I’ll be leaving for North Carolina again ( my second home) for three weeks to attend a school which I am super stoked about! But back to the last couple of weeks, we went to North Carolina a for graduation before that I attended a wonderful women’s conference with some great friends known as the glory conference and had a chance to dance there (that was definitely a God thing)! I attended a friends senior recital, have improved in CrossFit had lots of food, started enjoying my natural hair,had a picture painting get together with a few friends,today I helped with the Walk For Life that Hope Pregnancy Center holds every year!! And to make my week great my husband finished fixing the sub flooring in our kitchen so we can lay down the tile soon!!
So those of you who are my Facebook friends or who follow me on Twitter may have noticed (or maybe not) that I started a new blog… Why on earth would I start another blog if I already talk about so many different things on this blog… well it’s simple… I had to. Yup that’s right, I had to start a blog for a school assignment… and although many of my classmates will probably give up on their blogs after this semester is over… I intend on keeping my blog going. So what is this new blog about you ask??? Simple, Natural Hair and Fashion!!!
Two things that I love and sometimes hate in one place… I don’t think it will ever get deeper than different shades of purple… not that this here blog always has something for you to chew on… but in my new blog which you can check out here. it mostly talks about my struggles with my hair; my journey to find a style that I can be happy with and it will mention things about fashion that I am loving and maybe even some beauty things as well. I really want to do a bunch of copy cat/looks for less posts but I think I’ll have to wait until the summer time to get those going… but we’ll see… Feel free to go take a look, leave a comment, or some advice, or just a kind word of encouragement…
So my week recap is finally on time because well I have time… albeit not much time but I have time… So this week was full of getting the last of the fascinators done for Hope Pregnancy Center’s purity ball! For those of you who have no idea what a fascinator is, it’s a headpiece that has feathers in it… think Kate Middleton… and the purity ball is a time where fathers and daughters can come together, get all dressed up and talk about what it means to live a pure lifestyle. it’s really an amazing night!! On another note, I tried a new way of wrapping my scarf for my natural hair and I loved it enough to take pictures and wear it to school. I had a great little date night with my hubby at the library Starbucks on campus, He even cooked dinner this week! Way to go hubby!! I also had a great encounters with Jesus this week and am so excited to see what He’s up to!! I hope you had a great week!
