Let the Good Times Roll


Pineapple, Pineapples, Party Hats, Party, Balloons


Hey Boo. The 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 from Allie got 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, 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 this is necessary for me to get away so I can regroup and get 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. 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 man that h…

Party of 2

Wow, she’s absolutely gorgeous. Each strand of her naturally curly hair sits perfectly on her head. Her eyes are as dark as a summer night, and her skin smooth as butter. I can’t help but notice the most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever laid eyes on; as I’m sitting on the sidelines at my sons football practice. This baby girl was a mini queen in every sense of the word. I noticed how well dressed she was as her mother pushed her gracefully in her turquoise Graco stroller. Following behind the two were big bother and dad I assumed. The perfect little family.
As they all walked by, my heart began to flutter and my eyes became dewy. I begin to think of the future and If I’ll get the chance to become a mother again. My son constantly ask for a bother or sister as if babies are something we can go shopping for at our local neighborhood market. His innocence is one of the things I enjoy most about him though. Let’s break this down a little. I’m in my late twenties with a seven year old, diagno…

Tap Into Your Superpower

You know, before starting a new job, meeting someone new, or when you have a big decision to make in general; we often ask people for advice. We ask the questions that deep down we already know the answer to before finally making the decision. Women in general have what I like to call the superpower of intuition.It’s a gift given to us by none other than our creator himself. I’ve always felt like God favored women so much, it was his special gift.            The dictionary defines intuition as the ability to understand something immediately, without the need of conscious reasoning. Many times when you’re faced with situations where you’re not sure where to turn or what to do; the reality is you have all the equipment needed to figure things out, you just have to tap into them. After reflecting on my last post, I decided to tap into my intuition superpower again when it came to a certain someone. I recently met a pretty decent guy. Very intellectual, great career, no children, …
