Some believe in destiny, some believe in fate; I believe happiness is something we create

Well, weekend you did not disappoint. I had so much fun I decided to do my weekend recap post on Wednesday. Fancy me that!

On Saturday, a friend of mine was surprised for her birthday brunch (with mimosas naturally) making it a glorious success:




Happy birthday Cassandra!




So then, Ronda and I says, hey it's Saturday. Let's hit up the good ol'ale House to grab a few bevs with my Hunty. We had a good time y'all!










Then I needed a little nappy and some Advil. I woke up in the late evening to enjoy some random movies a la television by the likes of Grandma's Boy, She's All That, and then some House Hunters. What can I say? I didn't choose the thug life, it simply chose me. No, I don't think I got that right exactly...

Sunday presented homework and work so ehh, but then! The Grammys were on!!! Weeeee they were so good! The fashion, the laughs, the music!! Personally my overall favorites of the night were Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar, Queen Bey and JayZ, and of course Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, Madonna, and the always fabulous Queen Latifah, who married 34 couples, of all sexual orientation, on live tv! History made my friends and it was beautiful. Same Love for Life. Damn right I support it <3


So that is it for this terrific midweek, previous weekend recap.

Oh and this is my last week of grad school. Officially, it's done after this. So yea, there's that...


Til we meet again,
M

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
