Happy Thanksgiving: To My Family

Holiday Cheer


My nephew at 4 months when he didn’t really care for “Twin” that much.


Hey guys! How is everyone tonight! I hope that you guys are doing great and keeping warm. I  just got in from having Thanksgiving with my family. I made everyone state what they planned on doing tomorrow on their  day off. I made them do this because it was funnier than them explaining what they were thankful for. While eating my dinner, I thought about all of the things that I am thankful for. One of them was my family.

To wake up everyday to see my son and to hear his  football stories makes me proud. I  am still wondering where he picked this intelligence up from. Seeing my nephew’s face light up to see his “Twin”. That’s what I call my nephew Rylan. To watch him grow and speak has been a blessing. This is my only nephew and he sticks to me like glue. Getting to see my three grown brothers and my one grown sister made me so happy. Watching my grandma tell her “I  hate work stories” made my day. Seeing my cousin, my mama and my stepdad made me realize how blessed I am. My ex lost his mom today and I don’t think he has found out yet. I am fortunate enough to have both of my parents and a stepparent. There are many family members who didn’t get to see Thanksgiving or another day. I want to take the time to tell my family Thank You guys and I love you.

I want to dedicate this post to memory of my Nanny, Great-Grandma Elizabeth, Great Grandma Christine, My cousin Janet, and Ms. Tiny. May yall Rest In Peace.

I want to also dedicate this post to my cousins Pooh- Pooh and Tereba. Keep your heads up and you faith in God.  We love you!

Happy Thanksgiving: Thank You Everyone!



Good morning guys and Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that everyone is having a great day!
On Thanksgiving, everyone takes the time to tell what they are thankful for. I want to use not only this post but a series of them to let you guys know what I am thankful for!

First let me tell you guys that I am thankful for you! When I started this blog over six months ago, I never imagined the things that would happen. You guys have been so positive! I have no received one negative comment since I have been blogging. Some of you guys have told me that I have helped you but the truth is you guys are helping me. I appreciate you guys more than you know. Even if you stop by once and glance, thank you!

What are some things that you are thankful for?

Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday: Money It’s Gotta Be The Shoes?

Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday

Before I jump in to quinching the thirst, can we talk about how cold it is! Oh goodness. It’s raining and 36 degrees here in South Carolina. So who needs Tyler and the biceps to come keep them warm, this girl! Shoot I’d settle for an extra heater if you guys have one, lolx. Anyways back on to the topic at hand. Today to honor Mr. Lepley, I want to talk about his footwork.  We are going to play a game called “Money it’s gotta be the shoes!” I want everyone to take a guess at what  Tyler’s favorite brand of sneaker is.


What’s going to make this game even more grand is the fact that I have no idea what the answer is! I am guessing just like you guys. I think it’s going to be fun to see what you guys come up with!

My guess is: The Jordan Carmine 6. I guess because I have a pair of 6’s similar to these.


These are the pair that I have:


Which shoe do you ladies think is his favorite sneaker? It does not have to be Jordan. You guys can say any sneaker that pops in your head. Be sure to comment below and tell why you think it’s his fave!!!

Just in case you guys were wondering where I came up with the name for the game:

You have to love Spike as Mars. Please baby please baby please….. Tell me that you guys have seen “She’s Gotta Have It
