Even though I’m only two and a half months into the parenting game, I’ve already learned that the stories about never having “me time” are very much real. Nobody wants to babysit a newborn so as and when my mother offered to watch Marley while we had game night with some friends at our favorite hang out spot, I immediately took advantage of it!
Some friends and I made our way to Hops & Habanas, a local beer and cigar bar located in the heart of Jackson’s Fondren area. We picked up chips, queso and pico de gallo from Babalu and grabbed our favorite beers before heading to the cabana…but what’s game night without a game that brings on the laughs, jokes and unforgettable moments?
Ever heard of the game Codenames? The version we played, Codenames: Deep Undercover, is a must-have for any game night or adults-only function.

Since taking a maternity leave, I’ve had lots of time (mostly during the wee hours of the morning) to relax and keep myself awake while my newborn sleeps. I decided to binge watch Shameless on Netflix – and now I’m angry that I’ve finished the series and how much the characters made me think and feel, as if I don’t have all the feels already! LOL
Anyway, I was so upset after getting into Season 4 that I decided I would write about the show in the hopes that someone can make me like Debbie again. *rolls eyes*
Underground returned to our television screens Wednesday night with it’s Season 2 premiere episode, “Contraband.” I was so excited to see this show back on the air because it wasn’t just entertaining, it gave valuable insight on the history of slavery in America – insight I’d never been exposed to through television.
You know you’re everything you think you are as and when you can break the Internet at any time, without any warning.
Beyonce has already done it once and she just did it again with the announcement that she and her husband, Jay-Z, are expecting two new additions to their family.
I’m particularly excited because there were so many babies conceived in 2016 and one-by-one everyone is making their announcement. It’s such a blessing to add to your family, to create life and I cannot wait for my little one to be born in just eight short weeks! It makes me so happy to see other women who are also carrying life because I know, to a certain extent, how they feel and it makes me even happier in return.
It seems like the older I get, the longer it takes for me to fully get into the Christmas spirit. The world seems to kick off the Christmas holiday immediately after Thanksgiving but I’m usually not into the spirit until the week/week and a half prior to the actual holiday.
Besides the cold weather, hot chocolate and Christmas movies on TV, something that always seems to do the trick is listening to Christmas music. You seriously cannot fail with that.
So if you need a little push to get into the spirit, check out the songs below.
