Feeling/Not Feeling

·          Joe’s Jeans. They make me look like I got a badunk (and that’s a miracle)
·         Slightly nerdy dudes (let me stress the SLIGHTLY part)
·         Warm, inviting smiles
·         Keeping relationships OFF of social networks. I can’t stand when folks have to broadcast it all. Goodness gracious.
·         MAC Wonder Woman collection (that’s what I’ve been rocking for 2 months)
·         Turning 32 in 10 days
·         Lingerie I actually look good in.
·         Super cold Welch’s grape juice
·         My first pole dancing class my birthday weekend! WHOOP!!  My alias Teela Belleau will be in the house!! Heyyyy! (Ok...not really)
·         How sexy little things are…and how folks don’t realize they do it
·         My desire to go t as many concerts as possible this summer.  It started with Kem/Ledisi last week. Up next: Bruno Mars/Janelle Monae, Then…Melanie Fiona/Marsha Ambrosius...and wrapping up my summer with Sade/John Legend at Phillips Arena
·         Speaking of which...that new Marsha Ambrosius. MY GOD! That album is sexy on fiyah!
·         Wedding Season has just begun
·         I think I’m going to get back into wearing Royal Blue again. My closet is full of grays, blacks and reds. So sad. And some yellow here and there.
·         Spring means allergy season! *sigh*
·         I never had a honeymoon. *shrug*
·         People confusing being “nice” for interest. I don’t want you. Trust me. So let it go.
·         Turning 32 in 10 Days (I feel so unaccomplished at this stage in my life)
·         Working out (although I am getting results)
·         Seems as though I’m on a blog dry spell. (Not really...I got school and life and stuff)
·         Spontaneous date plans. Nah Patna...I need a concrete plan. I got to plan an outfit and errythang.
·         Losing my original purchase of MAC Wonder Woman and having to BUY the whole thing all over again.
·         Muffin-tops. *sigh*
·         Spilling said grape juice on a white shirt
·         My pinky toe hurting in almost every pair of shoes I own. What gives!!
·         All this vacation time I have YET to use. Plus a credit from Airtran I am scheduled to lose if I don’t use it soon L
·         Uhm…I need a date to these concerts. (LOL)
·         Finally coming to terms that I MUST buy petite designer jeans. I am not 5’8”…(lol)


  1. You're the third person I've heard talking about Joe's Jeans in the past week. They must be the double truth! What style did you end up getting? All the cuts and fits, it's like going to Starbucks to order a mocah frappa-rappa-venti-double-expresso-soy-latte hold the whip!

  2. I'm short so I ordered the Petite Provocateur jeans in bootcut. ANd I also ordered the Honey cut (but I had to get them altered because I am a midget)

  3. I've gotta check out these Joe's Jeans!

    Oh no!!! @ losing your MAC purchases. Bummer!

    Can't believe we are turning 32. Goodness gracious, where have the years gone?

2018: A Year Without Fear

I used to make these lofty, resolution goals each year. The older I got, the grander my ideas became. That is until I reached the age of 30 and my entire life shifted.

At the time, I was divorced, living totally on my own, trying to rebuild myself financially and trying to figure out my next move toward happiness. That was at the time I started this blog.... which started out as my chronicling the dating and mating of a 30 something divorcee' in the South's Largest Metropolis. I was trying to date. I was trying to establish myself financially. And I was trying to find my purpose.

So much has changed in the almost 9 years since I started this blog. I've traveled alone. I gained and lost friends. I got into a Ph.D. program. I got re-married. I lost my mother, my best friend.... not to mention my uncle, cousin, and aunt. I gained a sweet baby girl.  I went from getting my bliss.... to trying to balance that bliss with my own life..... Yet in trying to find the balance, I alw…

The Ides of Birthdays

My 39th birthday is in two weeks.
You know, I feel like I write the same type of blog around my birthday every year. I get extremely introspective and pensive about the whole thing. But this is my last year of my 30s and I am feeling all of the feelings that have ever and could be felt. I hate trying to bring this up to folks.. who are always wanting to remind you of "well.. you got this.. you got that...". As if you haven't dealt with depression long enough to realize it doesn't matter what you have... if one piece is missing.. it throws it all off.
While yesterday was the 3rd anniversary of my mom's passing, I realized she wouldn't be here for my 40th. That was a hard pill to swallow. I thought for sure we'd be celebrating a lot that year... my Ph.D... a baby... a big, fancy car..... all of that. I only have one of those things so far but still... I was hoping that having her hold on at least until then would be the icing on my cake.

I Had Hope For Other Hair: Confessions in Black Motherhood

I had hoped for other hair...
(My Little One Reading a Book Before Bed)

... for my daughter.

No, I didn't want her to have "good hair"... hair that ebbed and flowed close to the weight of Whiteness. I didn't want that for her.  I didn't want her to have hair that was deemed "managable" or "a good grade". as if you can give hair letter grades or grade it on a curve.

I just wanted her to have any hair other than MY hair. She inherited my hair. And I cried.

When I found out I was having a girl, anxiety was replaced with dread. "Dear God.. I have to learn how to do hair". See, growing up, my mother was my stylist, even way into high school. So in between salon visits, she would relax or press my hair. She'd style it or comb it. And I never worried about it. I tried and tried to do my own hair... and failed. The only style I could keep up were Brandy-inspired box braids (which some poor, Senegalese woman would do for hours) or a very sho…
