Let the Good Times Roll


Pineapple, Pineapples, Party Hats, Party, Balloons


Hey Boo. This last week has been a complete blur. My birthday was amazing! I enjoyed watching my son play his first baseball game of the season, we had a quick dinner at his favorite Chinese restaurant, and I indulged in an amazing bottle of red wine my good friend Allie brought me to celebrate.
I recently decided to compete in the Miss Plus Size Charleston 2019 pageant, so I had my first meeting for that last week as well. To top everything off, I leave for Vegas in the morning to really kick off Level 28! It’s been a busy few weeks to say the least,but I’m so ready for some relaxation. Of course, I wait to the last minute to pack. Well, I packed but my bag was too heavy and now I have to pack again. I mean a girl need options, right?
On the inside I’m a nervous wreck. I have so many moving pieces in my life right now, it’s a little hard to keep up with at times. I’ve been wanting to start my modeling career, I’ve enrolled back in school, keeping up with my blog and resume writing businesses, on top of work and motherhood. I’ve always agreed with the saying “I can sleep when I’m dead” but this girl is in major need of nap OKAY!
With so much going on, sometimes I just feel so stuck. Stuck as in wait, what should I be doing right now, who was I talking to, who was I texting and what am I forgetting?  With that being said, I think a vacation is long overdue. I look forward to sleeping in late, being with my best girlfriends, and Mai Tai’s in the sun. I’m going to miss my little man though while he’s hanging with grandma and grandpa. I think it's necessary for me to get away so I can regroup and find mental clarity. Mamas, it’s so important to take care of yourself. There’s no way you can be the best version of yourself when you’re stressed and sucked into the day to day hustle and bustle of life. I never thought I’d be the one to plan a vacation away from my son. I’m telling you honey, it’s necessary. Doctors orders. Let the good times roll!

Why Are You Single?

As I'm sitting at work chatting with coworkers about life, I get asked the dreadful question. Breezy, why are you single? I wish I had some profound text book answer for them or hell, five dollars for every time I was asked by people in general. The answer is simple. I just wont settle! Being a single mother dating in 2018 is as complicated as trying to read Mike Tysons lips with your tv muted.   Although I’ve struggled with self-image in the past, I’m in a much better place mentally and physically and know my worth. That alone is a powerful weapon. I often look at my friends and family members and think to myself….am I really the only one who doesn’t have a significant other? When will it be my season? As quickly as those thoughts creep into my head I try to shake them away with positive affirmations. See, I grew up in the church and understand that there’s power of life and death in the tongue. My prayers for my future husband are very detailed and I know deep down, the ma
Where has the time gone? I can't believe it's been three years since I launched Breezy Monreaux dot com. This blog means the world to me. I always feel safe and have a sense of calm when I'm here, almost like AA for writers. This is my sacred place. For three years I've had a judgment-free zone full of support and inspiration from others.  I began blogging at a very dark time in my life. My days were long and I found myself in an emotional rut while simultaneously battling anxiety and depression. I'd like to believe that today, I'm in a much better place with room for growth. Last night, I found myself skipping through blog entries I've written in the last three years. As I  revisited entry after entry, I became filled with an immense amount of emotion. My eyes began to water and my physical being began to shake. Tears of joy, sadness, and hope all wrapped up into one.  Tears of joy for all that I've accomplished mentally and physically. Tears of sadness

Cloudy With A Chance of Broke

This glass of Walmart wine is giving me life right now. Bougie on a budget is my lifestyle. Since all the water shelves are cleared at Walmart, I settled on this sweet little Moscato. Funny how southerners go straight for bread and water when a storm is approaching. When my son and I lived in Colorado and was expected to get snowed in; sadly all I stocked up on were movies and food. It was nice to be snowed in spending time with the most important person in my life for a day or two. Good times. “Three pairs of underwear for myself…three pairs of underwear for Bentley” I mumbled as I folded our undergarments and placed them in our black rolling suitcase. “Mama, the water is too hot” Bentley yells from the shower across the hall. This is only his tenth time interrupting me within the last five minutes. Why do kids wait until you’re doing something important to need you? Like man, could you wait at least 2 minutes while I get my thoughts together and pack our entire life in a suitcase f
