Happy Thanksgiving: To My Family

Holiday Cheer

20131111-143751.jpg

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!

vintage_family

 

Dear Future Husband,

Hey! How are you? I hope that your are doing great today! If not, I hope that this letter will help. So I am catching up on my letters. This is letter 11 but it’s written on day 12.  In letter 11, I want to talk about family. If we do have more children besides Brelin, I hope that we can always be there for our children.  If we decide not to or its impossible to have more children I hope that we can spend a lot of time together as a family. I pray that we will spend time with your family as well as mine. If your family lives out of town or state, I hope that we are fortunate enough to see them for at least one holiday, even if its Mardi Gras, lolx. I can’t wait to decorate the house for every holiday with you and the family. I can’t wait to let our children hear the song that our parents grew up to for Christmas, The Temptations hit “Silent Night“. I can’t wait to carve pumpkins and stuff turkeys. I just want to say that my grandma cooks the best macaroni so I know you will love eating at her house on Sundays! I can’t wait to spend my days, nights and rest of my life with you and our families!

Love Your Future Wife,

Courtney ( Insert Your Last Name Here)

Boy how I hope this letter is opened during Christmas Holiday!

I Have a Big Family Part 1: Meeting The Geers

random

Hey Guys! I hope that you enjoyed my previous post! Be sure to check out Au$tin and show some support. He is a real sweetheart guys and pure talent! I want to tell you guys a story. Now you guys know LuLuChris58, wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t add a random post here or there. Anyways the story I want to tell you guys is about my family.

My Great Great Grandaddy had a lot of children. I am not sure exactly how many but I know he had a lot. Because of this fact I will say 1/2 of Anderson County and I are related.  This is a fact that I did not know until I became an adult. Giving birth to my own child, I decided that I wanted to meet all of my family members before I left this earth. First I asked my grandma was there such thing as a different set of Geers and she informed me that there is not. The reason that I asked this was because my dad’s last name is Davis and there are over three sets. Next I started to ask everyone with the same last name if we shared similar family members. To my surprise we did. So with all of that being said I want to share a few stories with you guys.

Meeting My Cousin Meka

One day I was in Hammerick’s Department store shopping for my son’s 4th birthday. I was so happy that they had a sale. The gifts were literally last minute. I was feeling so lucky and now looking back I know why. As I stood in the line, I didn’t mind the wait. I’m so impatient but this day I was actually fine with it.  When I finally got to the counter, the Sales Rep was very friendly. She looked at my credit card and asked me “So You’re a Geer too?” I replied “Yes, maam.” We went through the whole checklist and I found out that her dad and my grandma are actually first cousins. We have been friends ever since.

Meeting My Cousin David

I have another cousin named David Geer. So everytime I would describe him to people they would always say “Oh I thought you were talking about the other David Geer.” Well I had to meet him. My meeting with him would be by accident though. I was freshly broken up with my ex Justin and my girls wanted me to remember single life. After attending a bag party, we stopped by Wild Wings to eat. My then friend Cherelle had a bad habit of trying to “hook me up” with guys. Since she hadn’t been able to do it for almost a year, she took her chance with the first guy she seen. It was Jason, a friend of my cousin. I didn’t know it at the time. So I looked over at the table and said “Hey my dude, my homegirl thinks you’re hot” It was my cousin David. After we asked him his name, we got to chatting and I met my cousin.  We have been close ever since.

Meeting My cousin Ree Ree

I hated my job at the bank but I loved to see and help this Woman. She was always so lively and sweet. She never complained or had a bad word to say to my fellow co workers. I kept seeing that we shared the same last name so one day I decided to ask her. We did our normal checkist and found out that we were cousins! I use to love to trip with her and I hated when she decided to stop banking with us. Now I am okay with her decision. I no longer work for that company anymore, lolx.

I have more stories but I am old and I can’t think of them all. If you are a Geer, or you are simply related to me then feel free to tell your story. I will include it in part 2!

20131024-141010.jpg

Since May of 1987 I have been a part of the Cinco De May Festivities and loved two pieces and rompers.  Just thought you guys would love to know that.

Preview of My Latest Post: He Doesn’t Want The Same Things

LuLuNews, parent family fashion, Uncategorized

Hey Guys! How’s everyone doing tonight? I hope that everyone is doing great! I’m  back with another Mommy’ Corner segment! Before I get into the meat and cheese of it all I just want to say that this segment is not just for mothers. I call it Mommy’s Corner because I am a mother. It’s as simple as that. Now back onto the subject at hand. I want to talk about Relationships after 25. I will break this up into a few segments. The first one I want to start with is what we want from our men after 25. I say we because I want to know some things that you guys want and expect from your guy. I will start this off with a story about myself and my previous relationships and all that jazz.

Now if you know me personally then you will know that my last serious  relationship was at 23 years old. Now when  I was 23 the relationship I had would set the standard for what I want to this very day. I had started to develop an idea of what I wanted from a man by the time I was 25 and it was commitment, marriage and more children. When my then boyfriend came to me with the same goals I knew for sure these were the things I wanted out of a man and he was that man. He was working hard towards his goals and so was I. At that time we were on the same page or at least I thought. No more games, I had left childhood behind, lolx. Fast forward to last year. I was 26 years old and single. I was still thinking about those things that I was expecting from a man and how many men I had to turn away because we were not on the same page at all. The guy of my dreams had returned but this time with different expectations. He no longer wanted commitment, marriage nor kids. It was starting to seem like the older we got, the more jacked up the priorities of men my age had became. Now I am still single and have been for almost three years because men my age do not want the same things we do.

I Support: New Music From My Brother

parent family fashion

Hey Guys! How is everyone? I hope that you all are great. I am sitting here just finished my Independence Day shorts! I will do a show and tell post later.

I want to start a new segment called “I Support!” I have done a few pay it forward post so I now I have a name for it.

I want to introduce you guys to an up and coming artist and my brother Courvosier. His rap name is Surge Supreme. I always remember my brothers loving music but I never knew how good they were until I listened to a song that they made just playing around. (My other brother Deverron makes beats). After listening to the joke raps, I started to listen to Courvosier’s real music and I like it. I’m not just saying that they have talent because they are my brothers. I am saying this because they really do.
