Hold On American Idol Girlz...the Boyz Are In House!!

Hey to you Sista's.

I have to tell you that I was very disappointed with the American Idol girls last night. All week they have had promo's saying that the girls are awesome and they are this and that! There were only maybe two that I liked last night! All the slow songs were so boring, low key with no spunk. I'm sorry but all this folksy artsy stuff is really boring to me. The song selections were horrible. I have to say I pray tonight is better! I am so glad is Ellen is on the show. SO HOLD ON here we go!

Peace out!

Olympics Are Wearing Me Out?

I begin my days at work by checking the internet for headline news....yes I confess to be a "news hound"! I have been fascinated with stories all my life. As a child I wanted to be Mary Tyler Moore and work in the newsroom...thus my degree in Broadcasting. In order to do that I would have to be able to keep a straight face...which for me .....well ...let's just say nearly impossible. One look and that's it. If my eyes meet someone elses and it's that lose it!

So this morning was no different than other morning...iI checked out the news headlines for the day, except their was a byline that read...."Skater to take ice tonight after Mother dying". First of heart dropped a notch....and then I clicked on the story. The skater mother flew into Vancouver to watch her for the Olympics and suffered a massive heart attack. Click here for story

Can you just imagine? I'm sorry but if that news came to me...I don't think I could get on the ice! She must
have nerves of steel or a need to fulfill the dream that her Mother wanted her to achieve. So please keep this Canadian skater, Joannie in your prayers.

I don't know what it is about the Olympics that's so nerve racking. When I watch it...I am just so tense! wears me out. I feel like I need to get my Beyonce off of the couch and do something. They always make everything look so easy too....have you ever noticed that? Especially the ice skaters...which is my favorite thing to watch. What makes these snowboarders keep getting back up after getting whacked in the head by their boards? It's just amazing to see how it all comes together.

And  let just keep it real....I don't care whoever wins....when they get to stand up on the little tiered boxes to receive their medals....I don't care if it's Americans or Canadians....I get a little teary-eyed when they play their anthems. They always pan in on their face and their singing the words...closing their eyes....and taking deep breaths. Kinda like being in a dream or fairytale I'm sure. It's also amazing to me how it all comes down
to how well one can perform under pressure and how they can come out ahead on just that "One day"! What if they are having a very bad day .....on their ONE DAY! The years of training all comes down to how they]
are on that day of competition. That my friend is what separates the atheletes from the "wannabe's!

Just some of my thoughts.....what are yours? Your favorite winter sport is what?

When Is Cuddling Not So Cute?

OK.....I thought I was coming to terms with being the mother of a teen.....but Sista's ....dear Sista's. I am here to tell you that I am not ready. I know...I may have spoke to me on the phone and I tell funny stories about my "Big Boo" .....but I don't know if I am finding some things so funny. Now for all of you that don't know my history......My Boo is 14 years old and in the 8th grade and currently 5"10 and weighs about 145. I mean a lean mean adorable kid who seems to be quite the charmer. ( As if I didn't know that one already!)

It seems that now days...the boys don't have to pursue the girls because the girls don'tgive them a chance....they do it first! Now let me start from the "Get Go"! Way......Way......back in the day...I was never allowed to call a boy....or show up at his house even by appointment....let alone randomly. Today the girls are apparently really comfortable with fact so comfortable that they automatically walkin and go to his room....which is a "No No" in my house. Here lies the trouble. Sometimes these girls may like him but he thinks differently of them....or so he says. He is usually very honest about what he feels or doesn't feel!

Here lately....God has been providing those little "moments" (if you know what I mean)....that I can share a little light on how it a nice girl should really behave. Sometimes I get a blank stare ......sometimes he shakes his head from side to side.....and sometimes he just laughs out loud! Uhmmmm....I don't know how to take that one. I don't know if he's laughing WITH me or AT me!

If you are a mom with a daughter...I need to hear from you ....Seriously! Would you let your daughter do the following: Do you have a policy.....or is it just me being too strict!

1- Do you let your daughter go into a boys room when she says she is going over to "Hang Out"?

2- Do you ask to speak to their mother...if she ask to go over to his house?

3- Do you allow her freely wander the neighborhood without knowing who she is going with?

These are just a few "Need to Know" things that I would like to hear about! Any takers...

Would love to hear your comments?

                                                                    Peace to you Sista's!

Nothing Like.. New York..New York!!!

Hey to all my Sista's! I wanted to blog really every night on my trip but I didn't take my laptop! I have so much to catch up on! Way back in the day....we told Lil Bon that we would take her to New York when she turned 10 years old...well....that time is here... so we booked the trip. My real life Sista Princess Lisa and my niece..Princess Erika met us there for a fun filled weekend! We had a mahvalous.....time! But it was just a tad bit cold!

The highlight of the trip for me was seeing the Broadway Musical " Wicked"! It was absolutely phenominal! I wanted to jump up on the stage and sing the very last song...because that's the only one I know the words to unfortunately!We were about nine rows from the front of the stage to the left and it was ssooooo awesome!

Nicole's favorite was the musical too....but it ran a very close race with this store!

The American Girl Doll Store. I think
we were there for about two hours!

but wait....there were other moments
like this.....if she was only a size 5!

She wanted me to buy these and save
them for her. She is the shoe queen!
Don't know where she gets it!

She also had to pick out her
favorite horse for Central

And this one.....won out! This my niece Erika who
just had her 22nd birthday....we were celebrating
both of their birthday's in New York!

We had a blast and I am sure it's a
trip that she will always remember!
Just like Mama want's it!!
