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 …

Pika Tacos: 6 Steps to Dinner

I post some pics of these from time to time and almost always people ask me what the heck they are.. I have tweeted how to make them before but I thought why not make a blog and fill you guys in on all the yummy details. Since being diagnosed allergic to gluten in October 2017 I have found it VERY hard to eat. Yes just simply eat. Gluten is in EVERYTHING! So from time to time I'll share some fun recipes you can make from home that are super safe because I break out in hives with even the tiniest amount of cross-contamination and I want to help anyone out there struggling with the same!

This is called Pika Tacos because a friend of mine named Pika used to make something similar after making spaghetti. She'd make a HUGE pot of sauce and when all the noodles ran out she would make tacos with the leftover sauce. I have not found a safe spaghetti noodle I like yet and I love these so I just skip the whole making spaghetti part, my kids and hubby don't even mind, and go straight…
