What To Expect: My Journal Entry

If you are following me on Periscope then you remember when I got my copy of What To Expect When You’re Expecting Pregnancy Journal and Organizer back in my 10th week. No one aside from me is going to see what I wrote in for a long time so I decided to share one of…

Baby Haul

The best thing about being pregnant,aside from being able to eat what I want, is buying cute baby stuff. My close friend and neighbor gave me her son’s baby clothes and his hardly used car seat. As soon as I folded those things away, I was bitten by the shopping bug. It took me two…

MommyinColorCooks: Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings

I found some old pictures in one of my Evernote notebooks. It was of chicken and dumplings I made for my mom and I last Winter. My mom had a taste for her childhood favorite dish and it was the perfect excuse to pull Lucille down from her throne. I almost forgot where I got…

Daddy’s New York

I just found this half finished piece I wrote on Evernote. It was based on a dream I had about my father..or at least someone who represented my father. I stopped writing because the dream ended and I don’t remember the rest. Should I just leave it or use my imagination to finish it? Let…

Party Over Here

Today was Bubba’s 6th birthday party. I have to tell you, it almost didn’t happen. I was torn about doing it because I didn’t have enough money to give her the big bash she deserved. We were unable to throw her a 5th party last year and I wanted to make up for it this…

You May Quote Me…

Today’s quote involves food,one of my favorite things (or so says my 230+lbs and 5′ ft frame). The author is unknown. The broccoli says “I look like a small tree”,the mushroom says “I look like an umbrella”,the walnut says “I look like a brain”, and the banana says “Can we please change the subject?” HA!!!

From My Personal Diary: First Day of School

September 9,2013 Today was Bubba’s first day of school (1st grade to be exact). I was so emotional while walking her to school. Every time I looked at her, tears threatened to fall. She sensed it,I think, and kept telling me she loved me. She is getting so big and sometimes I really miss my…

What’s in a Name?

This is the prompt from November 7th: If you had to switch your first name,what name would you choose and why? If I had to change my first name,I think I’d change it to Lorelei. To me, it sounds very free spirited and would be the name of a beautiful,red headed, ethereal fairy. Apparently, it’s…

Contradiction- Part One

Another piece my friend,Frankie. Give it some thought and let me know what you think. While the ghettos of America are filled woth terrible things like poverty and violence,the mindset of the young people living there are especially scary. One of the biggest epidemics that have been spread through the ‘hood, is the contradiction of…

Not Feelin’ It

Today is one of my off days. I’m feeling bored,restless, unmotivated, sad,&hopeless. Every now and then I feel that way. Sometimes it lasts for a few days and other times a few weeks. I feel upbeat and happy and then all of a sudden I’m down in the dumps. I guess I have a little…
