Call of Duty

So I'm not your typical girl.. I don't get mad at my man when he plays video games and demand he get off.. I like them too!

I grew up playing video games.. we had atari, nintendo, super nintendo and a few others as kids. I was the kid playing mario until I beat it.. I would throw remotes, yell and get mad BUT I would beat it nd not give up! The older I got I still played and got systems like Dream Cast, xBox, xBox 360 and now have the PlayStation 3. I love the technology.. I love the games and how I can go shooting on the battlefield, then ply a game of trivial pursuit and sort through pics and music right on my system. Do I play on it often? Honestly no... I get frustrated.. the older I get the more mad I get if I can't get it right... I can't be the only one like this?!?!

The biggest issue I have had with Call of Duty is its so constantly changing.. the other players are always better than me so I felt like it made it hard to learn.. I would get overwhelmed and just avoided playing... My guy knows how much I do enjoy the game play though and has decided to teach me more one on one lately.. We play in Combat Training mode and I am having a blast! We started out on the most simple levels and moved up as I progressed and I am finally feeling so much more confidant. I am so happy he doesn't just get frustrated and play on his own, he actually enjoys playing with me! :D

My advise to other ladies is you don't always have to do everything your man does but the more you relate to him on things he enjoys the better your relationship will be!

My Mother's Day Nightmare

May 13, 2018.. Mother's Day.

I worked an event.. I am always working.. helping coordinate a yearly brunch for my friend Chef X I was gone from about 8am until we got home about 6pm. I had been in communication with the two kids still at home throughout the day. They are 14 and 15.. generally mature and great at keeping in touch with me. Until 7pm that evening. Then 2 and a half hours went by where we had absolutely no idea where my daughter was. 14 years old and it was all silence. More than a few minutes is already scary, this was unlike ever before.

I am a mother to five, yes five, amazing kids. They are far from perfect, but I was far from a perfect parent, we managed. Being in the arts and entertainment industry there is sometimes a fine line between what is private and what I talk about. Most of the time though I know I am not alone. I know there are other moms, parents, loved ones who are experiencing some of the things I go through and talking about it helps. It helps me ge…

Turning 21, Disney and a Girls Trip We Won't Forget

I just got back from a five day vacation to Orlando... While there is so much about this trip we will keep to ourselves because it was all so special I did want to briefly talk about it as a whole.

About six months ago my best friend in Virginia hit me up. Her oldest daughter was turning 21 in July and she really wanted to do something special for her. My oldest had just turned 21, who also happens to be her Goddaughter, and our girls had known each other since birth as we were there for the birth of each other's firstborns. Her idea was to come down to Orlando, stay at a nice resort or hotel and have the four of us hang out a few days at the pool, maybe a bar or two and hit up an amusement park.

This sounded amazing and it was before the car accident my youngest was in, as well as a few other things to recently hit our family. When the accident happened she asked me if we should cancel. I asked her please not to, I knew by the time it came around I was really going to need a few …

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…
