blue jeans

Blue #OurProject52


One of my favorite things in the world are blue jeans. I'm such a t-shirt and blue jean girl. Most people put on all black when they step out but not me. I put on blue jeans, a funky tee and some heels; add a blazer, subtract a tee and add a tank top. I'm all about mixing and matching it up. Blue jeans are a year around thing, can't go wrong with that.

So what shut up! Skinny girls exercise

One of my goals for 2015 was to get back in shape. Whenever I mention exercise or working out I get dismissive expressions followed by rude commentary along the lines of "I wish I had your problem", "Whatever!", "What are you exercising for?" SO I DON'T DIE YOUR RUDENESS! Just because your struggle isn't my struggle doesn't mean it isn't a struggle.

Hey Cuties,

My son had his black belt exam and tournament this weekend. I mean the entire weekend {he did make black belt} so we camped out in a hotel getting up early and staying up late. After returning home I wanted to do something a little fun with the kids. The little one was sleep so it turned out to be more bonding time with the 10 year old. I promised him that I would note all images were taken by him and by him I mean "Ninja Nasir". It's his thing go with it; after all he is a black belt now.

5 Reasons why you should let your child plan their party

I am the organized type, the no I don't need your help, but thanks for offering type. You know the person that always has it together. The planner, the list taker, the crafty one that doesn't think anyone else can see their vision like I can type. Well, I was approaching my daughters third birthday and I had mentally planned out her celebration. I consider myself to be quite the party planner, and I had been advised to take some party inspiration from somewhere like Love Of Parties this time around, but I just wanted to give my daughter a great, fun day

Ripley’s Believe It or Not Winter Break Fun

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Like many of you my kids are still on Winter Break. We had an amazing time in Deep Creek during week one and I totally overdosed on The Wire series. We are on week two and I need to do something with them; I love my babies to pieces but being home with them for 2 solid weeks is a bit much. Thanks to Ripley's Believe It or Not we received complimentary tickets to visit their Baltimore Harbor location. If your children are like mine then they love to touch. Luckily several of the exhibits at Ripley's encourages them to touch. That means less fussing with the kids about doing something that comes natural.
