My girl and I were invited to a Special Screening of Cinderella on Saturday. I told Nori about the event in advance and she was really excited. All she knows is she watches Disney Jr. all the time. The invitation encouraged the children to dress up as their favorite Disney character. If you know me, then you know my creative wheels were in full motion.
I can't shop for myself and LittleCuteLips in the same store often, that just isn't a thing that happens. Enter LuLaRoe, they are a fun mobile pop-up boutique offering trendy fashion for women and girls of all shapes and sizes. I hope you read that as mother daughter cuteness, because I totally did. They have clothes for women from size 0 to 24!
I'm a Mom to a ten year old son and a three year old daughter. I am always looking for fun activities that slide in a bit of education. That seven year age gap is genius in some situations and a bit problematic in others. I struggle to find activities that both of the kids will enjoy. I struck gold with the Tots to Teens Expo. Finally an event that will cater to my big and little, it's educational and free JACK POT!!!
Last week I attended the booking signing event of Issa Rae of the YouTube series Awkward Black Girl. The event took place at the Martin Luther King, Jr library in Washington, DC. I've walked past this library a million times but this was the first time I had actually gone inside. It was a packed house, so packed they had to put extra chairs out and even then people were still standing. Issa's new book is titled The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. This is about her life whereas the Awkward Black Girl series is only a piece of her life.
A few months back a friend had a great idea to plan a SURPRISE couple's trip to celebrate her husband's birthday. So, over the weekend we all headed up to Wintergreen Resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. We had already planned out our activities, what we would pack, the meals we would prepare and what everyone would be sipping on.
I had a great time at Macy's "Soul Era" Black History Month event. I had been stressing over the details since I found out about the event. What time I would arrive, what would I wear, what would the experience be like, etc. I attended the DC event so it was just a short walked over from my job.
