Hey Cuties, It is that time of the year again when St. Jude Children's Research Hospitals has a Call to Service here in the Washington, DC area. This annual event coincides with CBC. This event celebrates the nine National Pan-Hellenic Council Organizations and supports the mission to defeat childhood cancer and sickle cell disease. September is their respective awareness months so the timing couldn't be better.
Hey, Cuties! I ran like a crazy person last week. I was all out in these streets. The Congressional Black Caucus was in town and I experienced it for the first time. I didn't get a full-on experience but I will plan better next year. I did get a nice taste though. I got some knowledge, I supported a worthy cause and I partied like it was the 99 and 2000.
Hey Cuties, I've told y'all before that I'm a TV junkie. Like legit addicted to the tizzube. I watch a variety of TV, documentaries, movies, sitcoms, reality shows, ratchet TV you name it. What I have been adoring lately is the OWN: Black Love Documentary. They make you experience all of your emotions while watching.
Hey Cuties, I shared my epic Mommy-Daughter Day with LittleCuteLips. The boys went out of town to MotoAmerica Motorcycle Races in New Jersey and I couldn't let them come home with fun stories and we didn't have any of our own. Their trip prompted our day, they had a great time and so did I.
Hey Cuties, I'm in full "fall" mode although it isn't fall. Shut up, I know but fall is my favorite season. I love all the fall activities and clothes and making memories with my family. I've legit solidified four of our family plans for this month and the next. Judge your mother. Just in case you haven't I'm going to help you out right now.
Hey Cuties, LittleCuteLips and I had an epic Mommy Daughter Day, really it was a weekend. The boys were out of town and I had to make sure we had as much fun as they did if not more. I didn't have a solid list of activities for us to do, but I had a few things in mind. They worked out even better than I imagined.
Hey Cuties, Happy #FatSnacks Friday Cuties. Both of the kids are in school and the struggle begins. The struggle of finding suitable meals to make during the week and getting homework done is quite an adjustment. I need simple yet hearty meals for the family. When I saw this on FB I had to try it.
Hey Cuties, Today was a day for the books. It was the first day of Kindergarten for LittleCuteLips. It was the first day my last child started school. It was a day that symbolized the coins I get to keep in my pocket because I no longer have to pay for daycare. Can I get a witness up in here? No, alright. Just know that I am rejoicing and crying at the same time.
Hey Cuties, Happy Labor Day to ya. I've been soaking up this long weekend by doing a lot of nothing. The Manchild completed his first week of 8th grade and LittleCuteLips starts Kindergarten on Wednesday. I picked up some last minute school supplies and today is wash day. I shared a lot of post about the dope things we did this summer. There are some things I didn't quite include.
Hey Cuties, Babe and I are still on this date night roll although the kids are back we are still having fun without them. First Marlon Wayans, then LOL Comedy Honors in New York, and now our annual date at Diner En Blanc. We look forward to going every year and it never gets old. DEB 2015 was our first time and we were just trying to figure it out. DEB 2016 I had our packing down to a science. Now we are going to talk tech requirements.
