Owl Always Love You!

Baby Shower #2 went down this past weekend. And the theme this time around was OWLS! This is also little boogie's nursery theme...although the walls are still very bare at the present time. This shower was thrown by my sisters and friends. It too was awesome! I realized too late that I didn't get a group shot with everyone and this saddens me...especially since a few people were from out of town.

But it was an enjoyable time and I'm happy that those who could be there took the time to come. It means the world to me! I tell you, I have some freaking awesome friends and family! There actually aren't too many more things that I will have to purchase right away and for that I am BEYOND grateful! Now I just need to start organizing the nursery...and write thank you cards.

I wasn't properly warned that in the third trimester the narcolepsy returns with a vengeance! OMG! I find myself sleeping at the most inopportune times. Like, when my boss is sitting talking to me and one of my eyes suddenly decides it's time to close!

Anywho, here are some pictures! The lighting was really bad, so we all look darker...or maybe I just look darker because these hormones are wrecking havoc on my face and neck...but that is another story!

31 Weeks!

The Food Table!
There were about 13 people that helped with this shower. So for the hostess gifts, I made a body scrub and gave them some nail polish. Packaged really pretty and they all loved the scrub!


Awesome times! Thanks again to everyone that attended the showers, everyone that sent gifts and everyone that has been showing me so much love! My gratitude goes beyond what words can express!

Have a happy and safe weekend folks!

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
