Yeahhhhh me.  I bought a grill on Friday. I am so excited it didn't take me long to make my purchase. Right now its sitting in my garage because it needs to be put together.  :-(...Now this is the time I wish I was married so my husband could be worried about how this grill is going to be put together and not me.  Of course I am not going to flex my muscles to work on the grill...I am going to enlist the help of my friends or a family member because...if I do it, it would be just my luck it would fall down right when I start to grill...lol  I will post pictures soon.

Trying something new

So I decided to try something new.  I got my hair braided.  I want to give my hands a break...lol.  Don't get me wrong I love being natural, I just need to give my hair and myself a break.  I have decided to just keep braids for a couple of months...so each month I will try a different style.  The good thing my hair will grow a little bit more.

Day 15 Squat Challenge

Ooohhhhh LORD!!!!!! lol...I don't think I knew what I was signing up for.  My legs hurt so bad.  :-( .  I keep reminding myself no pain no gain.  I am glad that I am working on this with a group of cool ladies, they keep me accountable.  Now on the weekends.....that's another story.  I try to do them...but I take breaks in between. lol.  I am starting to see some tone in my thighs...I promise I will post pictures real soon.  :-)

Best Mothers Day Gift!

This was the best Mothers Day gift I could get.  My daughter Brittani, graduated from Troy University today.  I am so proud of her. 

I am so happy my family was able to come and support her.  I love them!!!

Grill time!!

I am on the hunt for a grill.  This is part of my whole plan of crossing stuff off my bucket list.  lol. People who know me, know that this has not been a favorite of mine.  I really don't have a real good excuse as to why.  In my mind grill seems like a lot of work...and I don't like a lot of work...lol  But here I am out looking for a grill.  I am having a cook out next week, and right now there is no grill on my deck.  Did you know that the grill doesn't come already put together?  I was so upset about that.  Trying to find someone to come put that together is going to be impossible.  I think I will pay the extra $79.99 to get someone to bring it to my house to assemble it.  I think I will try it out as soon as I get it...you know do a test run before next Saturday.  I am so excited!!!!

Squat Challenge - Day 1

Today was the first day of the 30 day squat challenge.  My thought...so far so good.  I think when I got to squat 40 I started feeling the pain. But I know if I want to see some results I need to put in the work.  I gained all 15lbs back that I lost but funny enough I am still in a size 10.  I don't know, maybe I was in a size 10 all along and just didn't realize it. Today was the first day and I didn't have anything bad to say about this challenge...I will keep you posted on my journey to 250 squats.

Bantu Knots

So I have put it off long enough...I came home and did some bantu knots on my hair.  I have watched several videos on how to do it....I hope this turns out okay.  If not then back to the drawing board.
I think I parted it to wide....but we will see..

well I tried...
