These blog post are about my adventures traveling to new or old places.

Six Flags America Splashwater Falls, Hurricane Harbor

Hey Cuties, This weekend was a hot one, I'm talking hot for no reason hot. The dope folks at Six Flags invited us out for a day of fun at their Splashwater Falls inside Hurricane Harbor and a Crab Feast. Yes, they gave us complimentary entrance into the park and then fed us. It doesn't get any better than this. I shared my roller coaster experience and y'all laughed at me. From here on out it is all water park all the time.

Essence Festival Recap: Musician Edition

Hey Cuties,

Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was full, on Friday I attempted a DIY #fail. On Saturday I attended the WOE Magazine Launch which was amazing. I followed that up with a baby shower with the family; I won two games. *body roll* Sunday we went jumping around at an indoor trampoline place with friends, it was 21 of us in total.  After all that jumping we hit up the Silver Diner still 21 deep. Add in a couple of errands and then back home. Did you tune into the first episode of season 3 of POWER? The cast of Power was at Essence Festival but I didn't get a chance to catch up with them. I did however catch up with all of these singers; I can't wait to spill the tea below.

Essence Festival Recap: Actors Edition

Hey Cuties, This has been a tough week, I was all excited about sharing my Essence experience and then I couldn't form the words. Real life is happening and it had me stuck. I have two black men in my home that I worry about constantly. I don't want anyone to be threatened by the color of their skin. In the spirit of all of this brown-ness I'm sharing part 2 of my trip.

#FatSnacks Friday: New Orleans

Hey Cuties,

Friday is my favorite day of the week here at mimicutelips.com because I get to share my love of food with you. This week's #FatSnacks Friday is about the eats I had while in New Orleans. This is part 3 of the New Orleans series. I didn't get to eat nearly as much as I wanted to but I got in the basics for sure.

Tramping around the 504 (New Orleans)

Hey Cuties, I'm fresh off an amazing five days in New Orleans and still sorting through over a thousand pictures. Three days of Essence Festival that was so freaking major. It was so much going on I didn't even do half of the activities and still had a ball. I posted tons of pictures and videos on IG and Snap as promised. Even with all of that I still have so much to share.  I'm going to do a five party harmony, five party harmony.

Tech & Travel at the Willard InterContinental #TNTDC

Hey Cuties, I think I told you my week was full and we have a road trip coming up for the weekend. Followed up with Father's Day; I hope you make time to celebrate the Father in your life. I took the kid's card shopping last week so they are ready. They spend a large amount of time in the card section selecting the right one. This just lets me know that I'm raising them right. I'm so particular about my cards, and they are the same way. Monday I hung out at the famous Willard InterContinental on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.

Six Flags SUPERMAN Ride of Steel Virtual Reality Coaster Recap

Hey Cuties, Friday is here and let me tell you, I've got the laughter you're in need of. Gut busting laughter even. A couple days ago I attended my first media event with Six Flags. They were debuting their new SUPERMAN Ride of Steel Virtual Reality Coaster. Don't be misled by the name this is an actual roller coaster you ride, so it is reality + virtual reality. This is not a simulator what so ever. Full Disclosure:  I've not been on a roller coaster in 15 years, FIFTEEN YEARS!

Saving Coins with Groupon Coupons

Hey Cuties, Today is all about deals, deals, deals. Spring is here and I want to shop for new clothes.  I'm planning a few trips for the family. I've already given my limbs to pay for summer camp. I've donated my body to science so I could pay for the braces my man-child now has in his mouth. This means I am desperately holding on to the last couple of coins I have.

Ten Management Tips for the Busy Woman {Mazda CX 3 Grand Touring}

Hey Cuties, How are ya? I've been busy the last half of the month, and May is shaping up to be even crazier. This is the life we live and we don't mind; it isn't always this way. As the kids get older they have more activities than we do. People frequently ask HOW DO YOU DO IT ALL? The short answer is I don't; if I'm amazing at one thing something somewhere is suffering. I'm certain that my floor boards are dusty, the ceiling fans too, and several other things. I'm going to get a Groupon for that... more on that in another post.
