So after looking at Tyler’s recent Instagram photo, I wondered what a date would be like with him? Would he cook for a lady? Would he cut cartwheels with somebody?

The Fuss: Bound 2

parent family fashion, random, Uncategorized


Just like Tamar Braxton‘s “Hot Sugar”, I’m late on asking this question about Kanye’s “Bound 2”. I had heard so many bad things about the video that I had to go and see what the fuss was. It had been posted on my timeline on Facebook and one of my favorite YouTuber had mentioned how much she hated it and the song.
Before I give my thoughts on this I have to say that before “Yeezus” came out, I was a HUGE Kanye fan. I have owned every Kanye album. In fact the first album I ever bought, that wasn’t a bootleg, was “My Dark Twisted Fantasy”. I still have it on my IPhone. When I heard “Yeezus”, I was disappointed. I like a few songs on the album but it wasn’t the Kanye I was use to. Something was missing.


Still can’t figure out why everyone went in on this video????

Bound 2 was one of the songs I liked. I love the Brenda Lee ” Sweet Nothing’s” sample. It’s the part that sounds a lot like Kim Kardashian saying “Uh huh honey, alright!” For the longest I thought it was her.
So I went to watch the video co starring Kim K after seeing Kanye on The Breakfast Club. I saw nothing wrong with it. I thought it was hilarious. Because I listened to the interview before hand, I was able to understand Kanye’s thought process behind the video. I’ve seen worse. I think that due to the fact that public opinion of Kim K isn’t one that is too good, people look for reasons to hate anything she does. If Kanye had casted another female as his co-star of the visual, he wouldn’t have caught as much flack! I hear a lot about how masoganistic Kanye West is and I have to disagree.(another topic for another time)

For Kicks and Giggles:

I know I’m late but how did you guys feel about Bound2? What’s the fuss? Do you guys love the song and hate the video? Do you guys hate both? I love it, if anybody cares, lolx. Oh and btw, the chrous says “Bound to falling in love” not “I am falling in love”..uh huh honey! Lolx.

MC Life and Relationships After 25: Steps I Am Taking To Change

Mommy's Corner, parent family fashion

Hey guys. How is everyone today? I hope that you guys are doing great today. I met another blogger through Instagram @fromaptone from and she inspired me to write this post. Hey Girl! She commented on my 19 Things I Did Wrong In My Previous Relationships post. I asked her to tell me about some of the steps that she had taken to change in her life. While I was waiting on her reply I started to think “What are some of the steps that I have taken, myself”? Well I want to share with you guys some of the steps that I have taken  or really that I am actually taking.

  1. I do not unleash the “Wrath of Geer” on people anymore. Oh there has been times that I wanted to but for some reason I just don’t. The wrath consist of me letting you do more than  just “have it”. I would go off on everybody who had anything to say.No one was exempt. I would fight very dirty. I have had this chance to just go off on people but instead I have just said what I felt needed to be said and left it at  that. I still have anger issues but they are getting better. I haven’t sassed anybody nasty. ( If you watch Adventure Time, you know exactly what I mean.)
  2. I blog! Yes I know that was a given but I had a situation this morning that bothered the mess out of me! I couldn’t really do much else about so I just blogged. This helped me a lot.
  3. I look at pictures of Tyler Lepley. Ok not really but I thought that would be funny to add in to lighten the mood. Speaking of Tyler, make sure you check out his Instagram to see more pictures like this:20131119-171833.jpg
  4. I make jokes. This is something that I have always done. Even in the most serious talks with people, I have something snarky but funny to say. I dont know why, that’s just always been me.
  5. I am reading a book called “Getting Back Together”. Why am I reading this book? Well I bought it right after my ex and I broke up for like 22.00 and I started reading it and then I stopped. Well a year later I used it for my bedroom stand decoration. This year I decided to pick it up again. Not because I am trying to get back with my ex but  I remembered there was some things  in the book that helped you with fixing yourself. I figured why not! Not only will it help me restore myself and understand my mistakes, it will make me a better partner for the next go round. Besides 22.00 is a lot of money to spend on a book.  I better use it for something.


Review coming on this book soon.

I still have a few things that I am working on and I am getting no where with. One thing is my patience with people and things in my life. I hope I don’t die an impatient person but right now it looks like I am a lost cause, lolx. If any of you guys have some tips to help me out with this, please feel free to share below.

Your Turn:

What are some things that you guys are battling with? How are you working to overcome these obstacles? What are some things that you guys have worked on in your lives? I would love to hear your stories!!!

MC: Relationships After 25: Facebook Post From An Ex

Mommy's Corner

Hey guys! How is everyone today? I hope that you guys are doing great this morning. I am up early. I couldn’t go back to sleep so I decided to write. ( In my 4 page letter voice). This post is sort of a release post about something that I seen this morning that rubbed me the wrong way, a Facebook post from an ex.

So I wrote a post about 19 things that I did wrong in my previous relationships. I talked about my past three relationships. A lot of things I did in each relationship but a good bit of the things were done in my last relationship alone. Now of course I would have this relationship details fresh in my mind. It is the one that I still deal with. Well one of the “exes” wasn’t to happy with my story telling abilities. He took to Facebook to post a status. I won’t  quote him directly, I will just give you the jist of the post. He basically said that people should own up their mistakes without victimizing themselves.

Read that post here!

Now Why Did This Rub Me The Wrong Way

I have a few reasons that this didn’t sit right with me. First reason is, when I tell other people how I am feeling it’s because I can’t say it to that person. It’s not out of the fact of fear, it’s simply because that person ignores me. Instead of saying “Hey I have a problem with this.”, he takes to social media to “vent” his frustration. My second problem with this is now I get to look like the bad guy inside of a bad inside joke. Now I say it’s a bad inside joke because he only got brave once and posted my birthday in a post.  Any other time, there’s no names, only indicators for the hit dog to holler. I am not the easiest person to get along with but I make myself available for discussion if you have any type of problem.  Now we have people only getting half of the truth, if any, and basing their opinion of me as  person on that.  My last and maybe my biggest problem of the whole matter is that I am obsessed with explaining myself. I do not know why but I do. I think it’s because I have always wanted to know why people do things. I feel that if explain why you done something, it makes it easier for the person to empathize with you. It won’t change the fact that you are wrong, it just makes them understand you better.

If there is one thing about me, I will try to tell you the  whole truth about a situation as best I can. I try to see life with unbiased eyes but I am not a mind reader. If I know that I am doing something wrong, I put that out there before telling the story. To give a better example. That ex who posted that status loves to point fingers and call out others on their mistakes. He would whine and complain about being ignored by people whose back he had while ignoring me when I was trying to address an issue with him. Since when is ok to expect things from others when we don’t do them ourselves? Don’t dish out advice on to the plate of others that you should be eating yourself. In fact, eat the whole casserole dish of it. Funny thing was when we were friends, He always had an ear to listen long as he wasn’t a factor to the problem.

Why Didn’t You Just Tell Him This:

I didn’t tell him this because he will just ignore me and take to the social media scene. Since he likes to read my blog and do unofficial reviews for them, I figured this would be the perfect way for him to see my anger. Next time be sure to link my blog post that you are referring in your status.

Now I know some of you guys that are reading this maybe thinking “how do you know that he was even talking about you.”?  Well trust me when I say I know some people like the back of my hand and he’s one of them. Let’s be fair for a second, let’s say he was talking about someone else. Well that person has an inbox or maybe even a phone. The best part is they have a face, try using it to tell them how you feel!

Now it’s your turn:

Feel free to voice your thoughts and opinions about this post in the comment section. If you would like to share a similar story go right ahead. I just ask you not to make a status about it, lolx.




MC:Relationships After 25: 19 Things I Did Wrong

Mommy's Corner, parent family fashion, The Challenge



Hey guys! How is everyone today? I hope that everyone is doing well and feeling blessed! If not, hopefully you will get a laugh at my expense today! Anyways, we all know about the revised numbers games are that floating around on Facebook! There are many different versions and I have to admit they are actually fun to play. My best friend and I were talking about how therapeutic  it has been for us. Plus these games are being played by everyone, drama free, lolx. Yesterday, I received the numbers 10 and 9 from two different friends. I decided to combine them and blog about the 19 things I did wrong in my previous relationships!

No one ever wants to admit their wrongs whether it being in a relationship or in life in general. I mean it is a hard thing to do, especially for a know it all and low key perfectionist like myself. It’s hard but I am not above it at all. So without further ado, let’s jump into it!

  1. I didn’t speak up. Even when my last ex gave me  the platform to do so, I still held back. I found myself saying things when it was too late.
  2. I have no patience. I am like this in my real life. It’s something that I battle with daily. From my career, to my child and my love life, I can’t wait. I have to see results now or it’s not going to happen. Can’t call JG now!
  3. I forgot to pray. I believe God reveals and heal all situations.
  4. I hate repeating myself.  If I tell you in the beginning how I want to be treated, I don’t want to tell you throughout the course of the relationship.
  5. I gave up on things too easily. With the exception of my last relationship, all my other relationships when they were done, they were done.
  6. I was rude. I would go over my ex’s house and walk in with an attitude at times. Here’s why. If I came in and he was doing something and I felt that his attention wouldn’t be on me,it would hurt my feelings. Because I was the type of girl who never wanted to seem weak, I’d just sit on the bed and pull out my phone. It was just me, him, an Iphone and an attitude.
  7. I didn’t want to get to know any of my exes’ families or their friends unless it was on my time. I am very private. When you randomly bring your family on me, it weird me out and makes me nervous. I do not know why. A lot of people think because of this trait, I am rude. Now to be fair to myself, I got to know my last ex’s stepfamily, his best friend and one of his sisters. Also we shared most of the same friends. I met his mom once. That situation blind sided the hell out of me. We were just friends then. I will write a post about that.
  8. I had sex on my mind all the time! It’s true.
  9. I took my sister on dates. Now I only did this in one relationship. Sometimes my ex and I would argue about the most stupid stuff so I would bring my sister along to referee.
  10. I would argue to win. Now one thing you do not want to do is argue with me. I will get mean.
  11. I would put my relationship business on Facebook. All of it. The good, the bad and the ugly. Once again this was only in the last relationship. The other two were during the MySpace days.
  12. I would call my ex  the B word. I never realized until our breakup that it really hurt him for reasons that he tried to explain.
  13. I never listened. My listening skills got better by the last relationship but I still only had selective hearing.
  14. I told my family everything. I am the type of  person that wants to know when I am wrong. Of course most of your friends and family are going to agree with you but not mine. In this instance the almost did though. Weird but true.
  15. I told his sister our business. I told you guys I only got to know one of his sisters and I made sure that I used her as my therapist and advocate  during the last month. Not cool.  In my head I thought she would fight for me.
  16. I would compare my last ex to the ex before him. Sometimes I would do it out of spite but most of the time I would do it to say “Hey I can leave but I don’t want to.” he didn’t take it that way at all. Funny thing is the ex before him never got compared to the first ex.
  17. I let my friend call my last ex a douche bag. I called him a douche bag.
  18. I never realized how much fun I would have with these guys until it was too late.
  19. I never truly apologized for my part in each of these break ups.


Thats hilarious

I know there are more than 19 things that I did wrong in my past three relationships because let’s be honest, I am human. A lot of these things felt so right at the time of doing them but a lot of these things I knew better. I am learning that you don’t argue to win with people you love. You end up saying things that are on your mind but they come out in the most malicious way and that is only your intent for that time. I am working on my anger, my lack of patience, my communication and appreciation skills. These are things that I not only need in my relationships but in my everyday life.

Now Your Turn:

So I ask you to try the numbers game.  Write down a number of things that you never knew about yourself, things you would like to work on or even just goals. It’s really fun and can be used as a way to say sorry to someone. Or in my case, some exes. I hope that you guys  enjoyed this post.

Side note: The two previous exes before the last ex actually have talked with me about these things. We are on good terms.


MC: Life After 25: I Use To Be…

Mommy's Corner

Hey Guys! How is everyone today? I hope that everyone is doing great! So I was skimming through Facebook and I came across a JayZ post. I forgot that yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of the the release of “The Black Album.”


Boy, the black album was supposed to have been Hov’s last album due to retirement. Well we all know that to be the biggest lie, lolx.  So anyways Jay asked his Facebook fans, what was their favorite memory from the that album. Of course I had to answer. With JayZ posting that post, he inspired me to post things that I use to be 10 years ago! I have changed a lot.

One of the things I use to be was a big hip hop head! I knew all of the music before it came out. I have my mama and longing urge to be the go-to girl for everything to thank for that. I used to be a BIG Hypebeast. Yes if Trinidad James had went to school with me, he definatley would point a finger this way. I used to be in love with a star football player from Woodmont. I have no idea where he’s at  now.  One of my bestfriend was Whitney Chapman. Hey Whitney!!! I still say that we are friends, I just don’t see much of her now. I think if high school had never ended, we probaly still would be besties.


I couldn’t drive. Yes, I still can’t drive, lolx but it was a lot worse then. I worked like a dog. I loved money and clothes so I threw away 90% of my teenage years to be an adult. Word to the wise, teenagers don’t grow up too fast. Enjoy your youth no matter how bad you think it is. I use to have the biggest crush on Jim Jones. Hey the man is hot, what can I say???  I wasn’t as carefree as I should have been. I was 17, not 27. I use to plan everything! Of course, plans fell through but I was determined to get something right.


27 year old Courtney wants to tell 17 and 18  year old Courtney these things:

1.)You will not marry Brandon Johnson. He liked you but he loves that girl that will have the baby with. Always did. Stop trying to fight Carrie and everyother girl that he dates. He will not be in NFL but later on in life you will date an NFL player. Ok he will ride the bench but he was on the roster. He will teach you that you are not ready for that NFL Baller’s Chick Life.

2.) Slow down. You wont even have that Honda that you get at 18 no longer than two years. Those Jordans will be re-released over 100 time over your life span.

3.) Speaking of Jordans, don’t give those Jordans to your grandma. She’s not going to wear them and she will only give them to your aunt to mess up. You will not like the 230 price tag to replace them 5 years later.

4.) You are not ready to get out high school. You will dream about it for the next 10 years of your life.

5.) Stop drinking. It will lead you down a path that you will regret

6.) Start a money market account. You make good money to be a teenager with really no bills.

7.) You will not be the breadwinner of your crew always. Stop getting so comfortable with that title.

8.)Continue to pray and pay your tithes. Thank God in all that you do, good or bad!

9.) Let it out. Cry about your grandma’s death. It will haunt you if you don’t.

10.) Maybe your pyschic because I did always know when Brandon Williams would wear that shirt, lolx.

11.) Be sure to truly forgive.

12.) Learn about not burning bridges. You will do that a lot in the next 10 years of life.

13.) Stay funny. People love your randomness!

14.) Stop conforming. You were made to be you for a reason. Yes, your friends love your style but add more of “You” in it.

15.) You will become best friends with a guy that you will meet on Blackplanet. Be sure to treat him right. He would lay down his life for you.

16.) You will not live that Sex in The City lifestyle when you turn 25. That’s why it’s called TV but you will be very pretty. Wait you always have been, lolx.

17.) You will be on a path to being a sucessful blogger. Stay focused.

18.) You will not be a Rad Tech, a Doctor, a hairdresser nor a nurse. You never wanted to do that in the first place.

19.) There’s a 16 year old RB from Philly named Tyler Lepley and he will become a big star. You will admire his work and he will be very nice to his fans!


Thank God for the events that lead to you becoming an actor, Tyler!!!

20.) You will not have the same crew from high school and it’s ok. Growth is always a good thing.

21.) You will become  good friends with Justin Posey so don’t sneer your nose up at him in the mall. Although yall will fall out again, it goes to show you how life works.

22.) The bag boy at Bilo who your mom calls “Little Fat Cute Chris Brown boy” will someday become your bestfriend. You will call him Stevens! Then he will become your boyfriend and he’ll be your Warren J.  Yall will go through some tough times together but you guys will have fun. You will be one in the same.   Because you two are very immature,you guys will break up but he will have your heart.  He will be one the reasons you start your blog. You will be mad at him for a while but no matter what or why you will love him. Stop pushing him to do stuff. He’s a very intelligent guy, he will get there when he’s ready. It will be hard but try to be his friend, love him, forgive him and GIVE HIM SPACE. A 24 year old you won’t get that but I think a 28 year old you will. Oh and don’t try to beat up his new girlfriend. Although she puts mini hits on your life , lolx, she’s not worth it.  Plus we need her able to see, she will stalk your blog and make your view count go up. Let them be happy. Hopefully you and him can figure something out, someday. I will keep you posted lolx.

20130615-224730.jpg 20130624-230715.jpg

You hate dogs but you will grow to love King too. He was your baby. King is the dog in the picture.

23.) Opal McKnight will show up at your job when you become a Retail Banker and keep you laughing.  Especially when you need it the most.


*Oh yea, despite the fact that you will hate that job, you will meet some of the greatest co workers ever! Rhonda’s one of them

24.) You will love seeing Allison Laudermilk. Yes yall may not be cool now but you guys were besties in 9th and 10th grade. She’s a very good person!

25.) You will finally realize the reason you kept falling out with a certain person. It’s not meant for you guys to be friends.

26.) Little Jimmy in the Wheelchair will grow up to be  Drake! You knew he was cute for a reason.


27.) Don’t stress. You are where you are for a reason. Remember that God has control and you just play the part! Oh and don’t worry that guy in the blue car likes black girls. You two will become good friends.

20131115-152119.jpg 20131115-152109.jpg


28.) You will have one of the biggest crushes on your God Brother Varian’s big brother that you never knew he had. You will meet him when you work for Woodforest and you will find out he thought you were beautiful at first glance. His name is Christopher. See you don’t have a thing for all Brandons. Side note you will learn how small the world really is. One of your good friends, Brandon Wideman is Tre’s brother. Tre took you to the prom at 17! Oh and he will steal your prom picture btw!

20131115-152200.jpg 20131115-152234.jpg

29.) Fred is wrong! Chanity is not crazy, lolx. Infact she will date another one of your bestfriends and you two will become best friends. Oh and your predictions were correct. Fred did become rich! Shameless plug is his site!


My bestie is so pretty!!!!

30.) Your dad will finally admit to you, at 27, that he has another child and he will tell you why he never fessed up to being the kid’s father. Because you are now  a mother and an adult you will understand why he did it. You will immediatley forgive him and actually empathize with him. You will understand that the secert has eatten him alive all these years and that he isn’t such a bad guy after all! He still gets on your nerves at times but hey thats life.

What are some things that you would tell your younger self 10 years ago? What was some of things that you use to do that you grew out of?

Oh and My “Black Album Memory” that I told JayZ about was my graduation. Quick Story: At my graduation, hands up to the BHP class of  2004, they do not let you clap for the graduate after their name is called. Instead, they give you  about a minute before the first diploma is recieved to scream and holler. So In the mist of screaming I hear someone say “Thank You, Thank You! You’re far too kind!” If your a true Hov fan then you will know that is in the beginning of Encore! My friend Pametria Garrett and I busted out laughing so hard. Guess what  Metri, it was my mama who was screaming that! I found that out last year.


My mama is so pretty too!!!

Also I want to thank fellow blogger @MAYAOFFICIALLY of for inspiring me to write this post! She wrote a post that I will link here: To Live In Detail that is similar to my post. Except she’s way cooler! Be sure to like comment and subscribe to her! She’s pretty and she blogs. What other reason do you need?

MC: Ratchet Is The New Classy??

Mommy's Corner, parent family fashion


Hey guys!! How is everyone today? I hope that everyone is doing great! So I was talking to my friend and we began to wonder ” Is ratchet the new classy?”

When someone post a picture about fighting or sexual topics on social media they get loads of likes. When someone post positive images the likes decrease. This is also true for television. Remember I said I stop watching “Black Girls Rock” to tune into the premier of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”!

How do you guys feel about this? Should we just accept that we live in a time where there’s a new sheriff in town and that its name is Ratchet? Has the definition of class changed?


12 Things That You Didn’t Know About Me

  9. One of my best friends lives in California and we have never met in person.
