The "BoomBox Classic" Rivalry Did Not Disappoint Fans

SWAC, football, fun, party, tailgating, food

Rivalry isn’t hate, it is a partnership in disguise. If you want to give it your all and be your best, you need a rival. Without one you wouldn’t be your best, you wouldn’t give it your all. ~ Anonymous 

The rivalry between two well respected historically black universities did not disappoint fans on October 15, 2016. Jackson State University and Southern University drew crowds from all over the state. This particular game was an anticipated sell out. The enormous amount of fans that attended this game, have been supporting both colleges for years.

Sassy Superwomen Rock ~ Women Supporting Women

Support, Women, Event, Conference, Networking

I always believed that one woman’s success can only help another woman’s success. Gloria Vanderbuilt

If feels good to be at an event where women support each another. On Saturday, October 8th, I had the opportunity to attend a “Survivor Networking Conference.” The event was called “Sassy Superwomen Rock!!!” Originally, I was asked to be a speaker but because of a prior engagement I declined. Because, I couldn’t attend I decided to promote my Avon business and participate in the swag bag inserts. I also donated gift bags of Avon products for door prizes.

3 D's to Make Sure You Finish This Year Strong

Success, Determination, Discipline, Dedication, Goals

When you think about quitting, think about why you started. ~Anonymous

As we approach the ending of the year, I felt it necessary to point out three important factors to ensure we finish this year without any regrets. Speaking for myself, I know throughout the year life becomes hectic and I sometimes put things on the back burner. In doing so, I push myself further from the goals I had originally set at the beginning of the year.

Grace Ann's 1st Birthday Party was a HIT!

I can’t keep calm, I’m the birthday princess.

On Saturday, the 17th my grand-daughter Grace Ann turned one year old. By this being her first birthday party I wanted to go all out. All I can say is a grand-mothers love. For those of you who are grand-parents, you know that special love for your first grand-baby and wanting things to be perfect. Well, that’s the joy I was feeling for Grace Ann’s first party. I was overjoyed to say the least.

Grace Ann's 1st Peek at the Zoo

Zoo, Family, Fun, Granddaughter, Laughs

Just when you think you know all the love is… along come the grandchildren. ~ Anonymous

While out running errands Saturday, we decided to make it a fun day and take my grand-daughter, Grace Ann to the zoo. It was not anything planned just something to do on a pretty day. Sometimes doing things on the spur of the moment makes it even more exciting. Seeing that Grace Ann makes one year old next Saturday, the 17th, we decided to get the party started early. It’s Grace Ann’s birthday, it’s her birthday!

Finding "ME" Time in the Midst of It All

Self-love, Life, Spiritual

I enjoy moments alone with myself. My energy is restored and I am reconnected with soul. ~ Anonymous

Finding the time to get a little “Me” time should take precedence over many things. When we are depleted we are not fully capable of doing anything for anyone much less ourselves. If we do find the time to do for others, it is not done with love and care. It’s more like out of obligation. Before we commit to doing for others, we should make sure we are in the best place mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
