This and That Thursday

Here’s some randoms..

Okay. Addison has turned into this diva child over night. I don’t know where it came from but I am daily finding myself trying to mask laughter while attempting to scold her for some of her ridiculous and mean behavior. Lately all of the pictures I have been taking of her look like this…I wonder where she gets it from

 My son is doing really well in school. He is  reading on a 5th grade level. I went and visited a private school that is not far from our new house. I fell in love with it. Although we don’t know how we will pay for it, we are going to let him test in and figure it out later…Faith anyone?

I am finally coming to grips with the fact that a new Divinitee line will have to be put off until the Spring. I just can’t make the money appear and with the astronomical amount of money that we have to come up with for the new house right now I don’t see it…I am finally fine with that.

I am getting a lot of new opportunities for this here blog.  I am turning down some things but you will start to see a few more giveaways and sponsored posts. If I am presented something that I am interested in or is child centric I am going to bring it here with the thought that you might be interested in it as well. NOPE this will not become a giveaway/review blog, but what kind of cyber home girl would I be if I didn’t share good and useful information/products with you?!!

I am on the hunt for a pair of printed leggings. Preferably a pair that make me look “thick.”

One of our cars will be paid off next month!!! OMG, I talked all that mess about driving it until the wheels fall off and saving up half of the money for our next car purchase and now I can’t wait until we close on the house so I can get a new car…I know.

I am back to my old ways. I was doing good and then last week alone I bought a whopping 12 bottles of nail polish…and the cycle starts again. Every time I go in the store I have to buy a new bottle. Since I am so passionate about nail polish be on the look out Mondays for my link up where you can come and show off your newest manicure. Be ready on Monday okay?!

The baby is sick with a runny nose and a cough. We were up all last night and guess what…I feel the tingle in my throat. :-/

What’s been going on in your world?




Lil Mama Weekend

Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend was another that was extra low key.

I mentioned the Atlanta Classic being here this weekend, and to be honest I partook in none of the activities. Not a one. I don’t even know who won the game.

Saturday I had to take Addison to get her “snitches” taken out. My Godmother and Godbrother tagged along while the Mr. and my son was out and about working on his classic car. I couldn’t watch, but everything went off without a hitch. She has a tiny little scar but he said put some vitamin E on it and it should fade in a few months.

We came home and took a little snooze and then I headed out for a late night run to Walmart where I ended up putting all of the children’s Christmas things on layaway. Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!! I’m done except for some books, a few clothing items a Dreamlite and some Stompeez. DONE.

Sunday, I felt like eating good so I whipped up a nice dinner while we scrambled to deep clean the house. For sale sign should be in the yard in a few days. Praying.

How was your weekend? Does Vitamin E really make scars go away or should I get some Mederma? What do you suggest?

Oh..and Southern won the football game. Congratulations to my two Southern University readers ;-/

Weekend Wrap Up

Hey Y’all,

Hope your weekend was well and you are on target to have a wonderful week. There is something great about Mondays. I always feel like I have a clean slate to start with and I have all of the ambition in the world to do everything I set out to do and by Wednesday…well I’m waiting on Monday again to start over!

This weekend was slightly busy.

Friday I headed over to the Atlanta Sheraton to meet up with Motions Haircare who was one of the sponsors for the Black Girls Run inaugural 5K and 10K race that took place here over the weekend. I feel like a slacker for not running but that’s another story for another day.

I digress.

Had a great time talking with their brand manager about new and innovative ways to care for your hair while leading an active and fit lifestyle. Look for a detailed post regarding these products very soon. While I was there I ran into the lovely Eboni from The Fashionista Next Door.

The Toddler Sleep Chronicles

Listen. I’m tired.

By nature I am a bit of an insomniac and in a nice quiet room I can function off of 3-4 peaceful hours of sleep. Please note I said peaceful.

Initially we embraced co-sleeping until it became violent as depicted here. The violence wasn’t getting any better so I started placing her in her own bed at night. Yet, like clockwork somewhere between the hours of 12a-1:30a she will sleep “drunk” walk  her way into our room. Sometimes she even detours to the kitchen, grabs a bottle of cold juice and will hurl it on the bed while yelling ” I shirsty”

Can you imagine a cold bottle of Simply Lemonade touching your leg in the middle of a good sleep. You don’t want to. Trust me.

So we know she had issues with staying in the bed early on
