To My Brother

Have you ever lost a loved one? If you could talk to them again what would you say? Well I lost my brother a couple of years ago and it seems like yesterday because I miss him so much!

An open letter to my brother may he rest in peace.......

Dear D'Andre,

Where do I start? I miss you so much that it hurts sometimes, I cant believe I'm here to get old alone! We had so many plans for our lives but now I have to find my way solo I will never question why God chose to take you away so soon instead I thank him for the 22 years of your life that you were here. I remember never having a bad day because you always had a solution to fix any problem or a kind word to make me smile. I know you weren't an angel to everyone but you were definitely one for me! I loved your creative mind, your passion for life, your way of never talking bad about someone. Even though you were younger you always made me feel safe and protected when you were around. It was comforting knowing that you were always a call away, I got so attached to you that I never imagined life without you. Your nephew that you named and was able to bond with asks about you often and we can only say that you are watching him from heaven. Its so funny he wont let anyone else cut his hair without begging or threatening him. Mommy Is doing okay but misses you terribly these 3yrs have been gone by so quickly and its like we are stuck in time and confused by it all. Bj is in college and refuses to let the things that make black men crack get in his way. I wont keep you long just wanted you to know that I love you And thought of you today.


Memorial Day

I hope your memorial day was filled with love, fun and family!

I'm so sick of seeing young men and women making the decision to kill or rape someone! I'm addicted to crime shows like CSI but my weakness is the real deal like the first 48. I'm noticing a that even with the morning news I turn it in and hear about something that happened and I'm praying that its not someone I know or someone my color. It makes me angry because we have so many opportunities I just wish we would listen or just pay attention to the bigger picture! Don't leave your kids out here to figure out which way to go on with no guidance!!

Most of the time we don't really know whats going on unless it directly affects us but there is a mean world out there and its getting worse! In my neighborhood last week a 19 yr old guy started at fire at what he thought was his rival's house and ended up killing someones grandmother! This mornings news informed me of another youth shooting a police officer. I mean damn go sit your ass down somewhere.

Flavor of Love

I watched the finale of Flavor of Love last night and I must say that even though I don't believe its actually reality T.V. Im glad that he chose a "nice" woman. I say nice because she's not video girl looking but normal well almost. Im as impressed as I can be.

Made me think

I found out earlier last week that a classmate of mine passed away from cancer! I was so saddened by this news, but then I realized that things happen the way that they should. All I can do is pray that he had his soul in the right place.

I also wanted to add that life is so short and there are so many things that we think we have to do, or we think we have to get done that we get so caught up in this worldly world that we forget the things that are important like family and friends. So today I want you to take a deep breath and think about your life in a way that takes away the negative and accentuates the positive!

I have a huge book fetish! Since books are released every tuesday, I went to my local (not favorite) book store yesterday, and they didnt have a very big selection of african american authors! Why do you think that is? I have a process: I check walmart first they have african american books at discounted prices but they get the new releases to late! Im too impatient to order online so thats when I go to the book store. Its seems that we arent represented well in some book store chains.

My BabY!!!!

This is a picture of my child running his 5 year old heart out at his track meet on Saturday!! Im so proud of him he placed 6th and 3rd place

The Internet

  • They say the Internet is the information highway and I totally agree! Its so easy to go online and find whatever you need, but it can get addictive. There has been so many times that I have been so busy and only wanted to get online to check my email and it turned into me sitting in front of the computer for a hour. So my question is: Whats worse the Internet or television?
  • While thinking about the Internet I thought about friends! Is it being naive to think that you can meet really good friends online? I'm very trusting at times especially towards females because I don't have very many female friends, but since becoming Internet savvy I have met a few people online (HELLO MY FAIRY BLOG MOTHER). I even reconnected with my good friend and classmate on myspace! I guess I'm asking: Can real friendships be started online?

I havent really done anything this weekend.

Im working on getting a drivers license but there are some things that make me nervous! See I took drivers education when I was 16 like most teens but in my case I just didnt use the damn license or even bother getting it renewed! So now 10 years later at 26 I finally went and took the written test and I passed it which I knew I would its the driving thats scares me!

Shopping Blues

Why is it so damn hot outside? Texas weather is a mess! I feel like I'm baking every time I leave out of the door but I'm blessed to see another day.

Ive been starving myself from shopping and since I'm going through withdrawals why not talk about it?

Its one of my favorite things to do but its also something that I tend to do too much of. Impulse buying is the worst thing for me. I always see something and in that moment I think "this shirt would go good with _____" but when I get home I realize that I already have 2 or more tops that are similar to that. I'm realizing that I clearance shop like a mad woman its all good until I run out of closet space, I mean if something is marked down from $100 to $60 does that mean I cant pass it up? I especially love Old Navy because they have things that are $3 every week.

My point is shopping is a habit not a bad one but a habit. I'm finding myself with pieces of clothing that I really don't need but I was convinced I needed it at the time of purchase. Then I'm always complaining that I have nothing to wear. Its so sad I know!

How do you feel about STEVE MADDEN shoes? Are they considered knock offs?
