Event Alert: The Naturalista Hair Show – Sept. 27, Silver Spring, MD

Calling all Natural Cuties, Parents of Natural Cuties, Boo's of Natural Cuties I have the perfect event for you, I'm talking hands on classes, shopping, workshops, socializing and did I mention shopping? I am one of the Official Blogger Ambassadors for this event. This is my second year in a row. *body roll* Last year was my first time attending and I had a ball. I did a RECAP of last year's event so you can get the feel of the experience.

National Building Museum Beach Exhibit

Hey Cuties, I finally got the chance to take the kids to The Beach Exhibit at the National Building Museum in DC.  This exhibit has been really popular, I'm talking more than one hundred and forty thousand people have visited this summer popular. The cool thing is a lot of adults are going without kids. It's really fun for all ages, the kind of fun you didn't expect to have. You might even catch yourself in the moment and think "I've not had this much fun in a really long time." There is no sun, no water and no sand.

Fire & Rescue Special Ops – Howard County, MD

Hey Cuties,

Your girl was out trying to be a firemen at the Howard County Department Fire & Rescue in Maryland. Spoiler Alert: I'm not cut out for the job. I've always had respect for the fire department but I have even more respect for them now. Do you know they do so much more than just putting out fires? Don't get me wrong putting out fires is no walk in the park. They also help trapped animals, work medical emergencies, accident scenes, water rescue, hazardous materials, collapse rescue, mass casualty emergency response and more.

This Retreat is all about Lifting Women Higher and I have new heights to reach.

Hey Cuties,

How was the weekend? Mine was pretty good; I got a little R&R. You know as much as a three year old and ten year old will allow. We went to a Princess birthday party on Saturday. My daughter wore her tiara and glitter tutu for two days. I told her to put on her pajamas and she did, but she put the tutu over them and still had on her crown. We officially have glitter everywhere. Sunday I took the kids to #TheBeachDC which is a "beach" exhibit at the National Building Museum in DC. I will share that with you later this week.

The Biggest Comeback

Hey Cuties,

I worked The Biggest Comeback Event over the weekend, I'm talking 32 hours in two days. Add in 8 hours of sleep and that was me. I was a bit exhausted but I loved every minute of it. In a former life I did meeting planning and I absolutely loved it. It's been years since I've had a chance to do an event but I never lost my mojo.  I picked up right where I left off and it felt good. I think I might be on to something folks. Remember THIS.

This event was a very intense two day event filled with amazing speakers. Some of the speakers were in the room and others were online. You could attend in person or watch the entire event via a live stream. They had all options available okay. I was working so I couldn't sit in on all the speakers but three of them in particular left a lasting impression on me.

Where is my purpose?

Hey Cuties,

I struggled all last week y'all. I wasn't moved to write, I didn't know what I wanted to talk about, and I was just not feeling it.  I’m constantly stressing over not knowing my purpose. I have amazing women around me and they are doing big things. This is by no means a competition but they are walking in their purpose. I'm jealous, not of their success because a victory for them is a victory for me. I'm jealous because they have figured out their purpose. I watched this awesome Periscope by Julian of Bold and Fearless all about Finding Your Purpose. The content was amazing, I took notes and I was still not feeling Bold and Fearless. WHAT IN THE WORLD!
