Meet Our New Bundle of Joy ~ Gia Alyce

Bundle of Joy, Baby Girl, Granddaughters, Grandchildren

Ten little fingers, ten little toes, two beautiful eyes, and one button nose! Join us in celebrating the arrival of Baby Gia!

So, here I am again, welcoming my second grand-baby into the world.  I am a 2nd time Ya-Ya to a healthy baby girl named, Gia Alyce. It is hard to believe that I now have two grandchildren. If you know me or have been following me, you know that I am an only child, who had an only child. Therefore, to see that I now have two grand-children is surprising. I know my daughter wished she had a sibling growing up, and I’m pretty sure I wished that as well. Therefore, I can understand why she would have wanted to break the cycle of that only child syndrome for her children.

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.
