Fashion Weekend

Weekend Wrap Up

I’m baaaaaacccckkkkkkk!!!!

I seriously just needed to take some time and slow down and organize things in my head and get them on paper. It worked!

The shoot went great. I still don’t have any of the photos back but when I do you know you will see them. Here is a behind the scenes shot I caught with my camera phone. Yes it was real official!!
Hair and makeup

My dad is fine. All of the major tests for stroke, diabetes and other things of the sort have been run and the results yielded nothing. Thank you for all of your kind words. I truly appreciate them.

My son..we still don’t know. I am thinking of home schooling but I know my limitations and at this time I’m just not sure if I can successfully do that.

So my weekend was low key. Hung out with the family and I did a little bit of shopping down at Tanger outlet in Locust Grove, which is not far from my house. I went with the intention to buy shoes and clothes for Lil Mama and ended up getting a few things for myself as well from Old Navy. They had 50% off clearance. Ummm yes! Paid $16 for a dress, skirt and three bottles of nail if I need anymore polish. I’ll do a vlog haul at the end of the week.

I’m linking up with Glamamom for Monday Mingle. I wore:


Shirt: Thrifted Belt: Target Clearance $3.98 Boot Socks: Marshalls

Boots: Sole Society


Close up of my belt…trying to up my camera on the tripod skills since the Mr. only gives me 5 shots to get it right when I really need 25



Sunday. We laid low. I actually made some biscuits from scratch for breakfast. Yes.Me.

Mr. cooked dinner with his broke foot. I didn’t object, just put my feet up and did some blogging and tweeting. Weekend gets an A.

How was your weekend? Anything exciting in your world? Do share.

    Highlight of my weekend was the Patriots winning their game! So excited about this rematch. Otherwise, we stayed low key because of the horrible weather.

      Our weather was awful as well. Rained and was foggy the entire weekend. Luckily it was kind of warm and not cold.

      I love grocery shopping with the Mr. He doesn’t come with me often but I find that I spend less money because he is rushing me!

    My weekend was really productive! It snowed on Saturaday, and I was able to get a couple of things done around the house.

    Glad everyone is doing better– you should really think about homeschooling– I didn’t think that I would be able to do it either but now that I got the hang of it– it’s one of the best things that I could’ve done! Love the outfit and bangs!!

      I am going to reach out to you in a few weeks. I thought about you when my husband and I slightly discussed it. I’m interested in seeing how it works.

    You look great. I love the entire look.

    My weekend was pretty low key. I slept in which was a real treat. I made up a new cocktail called sweet tart, and did something about the afro growing out of my locs.

    my weekend was pretty low key too. Been on the search for a larger place to live. I’ve seen some stuff I like so we shall see!

    Glad you’re dad is doing well! Thats awesome news!

    Have you thought about getting your son tested to be skipped to a higher grade? When I was in the 2nd grade, I was bored and what not. I got tested to be skipped but my mom didn’t want me in a classroom with older kids. What they ended up doing was giving me 4th grade work and sending me to the 4th grade class for reading as well. It was a good experience and kept me with my own age group.
