diy, parent family fashion, random

Hey Guys! How’s the night going? You know that I only hope that you guys are winding down from an awesome day! Right now Pandora has decided to play Lenny Williams’s 70’s hit ,”Cause I Love You.” Man I love this song guys. My local radio station had a Sunday night segment ran by one of my best friends, Kyla Walker, dad. His name was Bill Walker and he played old school songs and this is how I became the old soul I am. Funny thing is when I use to listen to Bill, I didn’t know Kyla then. When I met her in the 9th grade and she told me who her dad was, I was so excited. I actually got to meet him before he died. He was the coolest. By the way guys, since I bought up Kyla, I want to just say Happy Early Birthday Kyla!!!! You guys be sure to wish my friend a happy birthday day!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎂🎂🎂🎂😄

Just Checking In. Blog Ideas and Random Chatter

diy, parent family fashion, random

Hey Guys!! How is the day going for everyone? I hope that its going well. It is very sunny outside here, but I prefer to enjoy it from the inside lolx.

I tried a galaxy print set of crosses on a pair of shorts and I gotta say, I don’t like them. I used electrical tape vs using the Manila looking tape or painters tape. It made the crosses look funny after I removed tape once the paint dried. I decided to outline the crosses in black. I will insert a picture below. I have a never say die attitude about almost everything, so I will sleep to come up with an idea on how to fix them. Comment below on your thoughts about them. Maybe you will like them.

I am still wanting to hear some blog ideas from you guys!! I know you all have great ideas because you all are awesome!!!!! Be sure to comment below on your ideas and topics.

Because I’m nosey, you guys know I have to ask you all what are your plans for today? The holiday has really thrown me off. It feels like Tuesday but its Thrusday.😞😞 I need to get it together. Am I the only one who is thrown off?? What do you guys do when you get thrown off course?? Let’s Chat!! Til next post ✌duces and 🙏truces!!

Hey guys! How is the night going? Who are you guys winding down to on your Pandora Station? I’m over here writing to the sounds of the Late Great Mr Luther Vandross! Pandora is playing his 80’s hit, “Wait for Love.” My sister swears that this song says fight for love so every time I hear this song I bust out laughing. Other than that, this song has a good message. Do you guys like Luther as much as I love him? Who is your favorite singer?

I am beat! When I do more than three pair of shorts or any project in one day I get wore out. I’m happy but tired. I plan on spending my whole weekend doing more shorts for the sale and customers. I’m adding more kid shorts. I can not forget my little guys. They are the reason I started LuLuChris58.

Don’t forget to let me know what type of blog topics you all want to see from me! I love to hear everyone’s input! Also be one with the comment box, lolx. Use it to tell a story, suggest things, be random or whatever you feel will make you happy!!!! Til next post…✌duces and 🙏 truces!!!!

diy, parent family fashion, random

Hey Guys!!!! How is the evening treat everyone! I am hoping that its going great for you guys!!! I am sort of bummed because there is no New SVU but Unsolved Mysteries is on so I will manage. I wanted to come by and give you guys a more in depth look of each shorts. I know I said I did eight pair, I did but I decided to let those dry in the house. They are still wet.👎👎👎👎😞 I will do a show and tell of those tomorrow. I named each pair, so if you want a custom pair similar to these you will have something to reference to.

These are from the Grapeblast 2.0 family!! There are four pair of shorts in this collection. The two newest members are The Chickens named for Brittany Plumer, a friend and customer and The Real Sade’s, named for my cousin and customer Sade Smith.

The next pair are a purple and pink ombré with distressing at the end of the shorts. Since this young lady inspired the initial pair of shorts that kicked off the grape blast movement, I decided to do another pair. Named after my little sis Nae, The Team Nae 2.0 will also be available in a kid size as well.
