My Heart Aches Again!

Last week the cousins of my fiance were murdered by a crazy, stupid, selfish ass, bastard with no regard for life. Wynetta was so young (20 years old) and her daughter's life was just beginning as well.  Jaylin would have been 1 on June 6, 2010. 
They both were laid to rest today and my heart still aches for them. Especially her 4 year old daughter Janiya that was left behind without a mother and sister.  When you say your prayers tonight please say a prayer for my fiance's family, that they may have the strength to get through this rough time together.


A friend of mine posted something on her facebook page that has been on my mind all day and  I wanted to share.
"... its crazy out here, life I mean..I swear that I feel Death creepin all around cuz one minute you here, next minute you can be GONE! STRAIGHT LIKE THAT! So if you in LUV, BE IN LUV..if you wanna MAKE UP, HURRY UP, if u wanna leave or change and START OVER, DO IT, and if it aint worth it, LET IT GO cuz this life is waayyyyyy too SHORT!! Everybody be safe and give love unselfishly <3"
Well said Shamona, Love You Girl!

Hair whoes and month of November update

Hair whoes and month of November update.

Well my and Mini Me's haircare has fallen to the wayside. I just don't have as much time as I did during the warmer months to put towards a new regimen. I still co wash and wash mini me's hair biweekly and style it twice a week to keep it fresh for school and anywhere we may venture on the weekend. I have gotten over these last 2 months regarding her hair care.
The week of Thanksgiving (which was also her bday) up until the new year she has had her hair in 3 different style of cornrows



She had a little whip my hair style going on and 2 variations of a faux hawk.



Baby was tired.


Now we are back to plats and braids. Her hair is healthy and growing.


 When her hair is fully stretched it's a little above her waist but beyond BSL. I'm still learning what works best in the winter for her hair but I'm happy we got this detangling down pack.

Something New- 30 Days of Truth


Told ya I was going in a new direction this year. I found blog challenge on a few other blogs and decided to hop on the bandwagon and give it a go myself.
Perhaps this will help me find the old me faster.
So here goes.

Day 01--- Something you hate about yourself

Well hate is such a harsh word. I think if I hated something about myself that mean I have hate for myself. I Love Me! So lets use the term dislike.

Well I dislike when I procrastinate and/or get side tracked.
 My face would probably be more clear had I not procrastinated on setting up an appointment with a dermatologist months ago.
My apartment would be much cleaner if I cleaned more during the week instead of putting it all off till Sunday. I just let stuff pile neatly and say I'll get it Sunday. I live with it because my excuse is always "the messy 5 year old"
I would spend more time in the family room if I was okay with its appearance. It looks like a messy daycare center. My daughter has toys everywhere and my furniture doesn't really match me or the room. I keep planning to box up and gift or freecycle the toys she doesn't play with, get rid of my furniture and box up all the things on my bookshelf. Of course I just keep saying I'll live with it until its moving time and get rid of stuff then. But I'm unhappy with it now.

I'm a work in progress I have been trying to arrange a few days for mini me to go away so I can attack the toys uninterrupted. But somehow when I go to drop her off I end up staying.  Other than planning for her to be away. I plan to challenge myself to throw away or give away things I don't want or need. I work better when I write things out so I may need to sit down and prioritize my life according to my calendar. A few vision boards could help to. I just have so much that needs and I want to do I'm getting overwhelmed just trying to decide where to start first.

I'll get it together soon. I HAVE TO!

What do you hate about yourself?
Will you join me and participate in the 30 Days of Truth?
Day 02- Something you love about yourself.

Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!


I know. I know. I'm late. But Hey, better late than never, Eh!
I promised to do better and blog more and I did just the opposite. I've kinda took a hiatus for a few months (5). My apologies but life got kinda hectic and the blog fell on the back burner.  I've had lots to say but when I get to my laptop (I got a new one now) I draw a blank as to where to even start. Then when I wanted to jot down my thoughts to post later on the iTouch it wanted to act retarded ass retarded. I'm back now but I cant promise that its 100% yet. I have a few things to blog about in the upcoming days/weeks. Which should help if not aide in my overall quest for happiness.

I guess a recap/update on whats been going on in my life is due so I can get the ball rolling with the new things. I have so much to cover.I may have to break them down into individual post so you wont get overwhelmed.
Wow. Where do I start so much has happened.

*Hair whoes- this wont be a hair blog anymore

*Mini Me turned 5 and had a very fun Pump IT UP Party and got her own personal pink tree for Christmas

*I was really in a funk around and about the holidays not having a tree at home or having dinner at my home with family and friends, not being in the new home so I could really get in the spirit and decorate my own home

*The dog is on my nerves I'm about to send her to a temp home (my moms house) for a while

*I been working like a slave to get that extra $$$ for the holidays now I'm drained and still not done collecting $$

*I have new plans for the blog and I'm going back to its original direction

*I don't have a resolution but I will share what I looked forward to from 2011

*Houston, we have a wedding date and we are moving forward. So some post will be wedding related but this will not be a wedding blog.

More to come soon!
