My 12 Days Before Christmas

12/13/10: On the 12th day before Christmas my true love gave to me... FRIENDSHIP! For some reason today I've been exceptionally emotional, which so isn't my thing. I chatted with my Godson's mother and wow. We've been friends for over 15 years.  We've grown together, apart, individually, and together again. We went from walking to the bus stop together every day in HS, to getting married around the same time, to moving around with our spouses, to now being settled in life and motherhood. We've evolved so much as individuals but have never lost our friendship. We are friends for life and that won't ever change. Friends are the sisters God forgot to give us.

You can get the finger!

I was on a quest to find some super cute aqua socks. I began to Google search to find something cute and stylish. You know how I do! In my search I came across Vibram Five Fingers they are shoes that look like toe socks. Sweet I know, so I find a City Sports (2 blocks from my job) that sells them. I go in and check them out. What do I see a PINK PAIR! I immediately try them on and OMG it was heaven right here on earth. I purchased them and the craze began.

Guess Who Loves Me More…

Most of the people that know me know just how crazy I am. Well this blog is a testament to such foolishness I love to indulge in. My boo (Bri) and I dubbed ourselves Lucy & Ethel years ago. Since the inception of our friendship there has been one foolish story after another. I think we have a crazy magnet that makes the simplest things sheer hilarity.

What will you leave behind?

Today I attended the memorial service for Mr. Paul S. Devrouax Jr. he was a principal in Devrouax & Purnell, one of Washington's largest black-owned architecture firms. He and his partner, Marshall Purnell, designed the Frank D. Reeves Municipal Center, the first major building to rise on U Street in decades. It was at the vanguard of an entire neighborhood's revival... For more than 30 years, Paul S. Devrouax Jr. helped weave the urban fabric of Washington. He and his firm worked on some of the region's largest and most significant buildings, including the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the Pepco building, what is now Verizon Center and the Freddie Mac headquarters in McLean. Along with HOK Sport of Kansas City, Devrouax & Purnell designed Washington's Nationals Park, which opened in 2008.

Synchronize the time…

Where did all my time go? I'm putting an A.P.B out on the time, most importantly MY time. I have been a mom for 5 years + 10 months of pregnancy. I have been a significant other since age 16 (with a 2 year break in there). I have worked a 9 to 5 since age 18. I am a homeowner (read maid) I run a successful business {Life Inspired Professional Services (LIPS) for over 1 year now. Not to mention a great friend, daughter, sister, auntie and a host of other titles.
