The London Sessions: MJB Review #TheLondonSessions with #bLinkbiz

I'm going to start at the beginning, I really like the London Sessions from Mary J Blige. Now here's the why: I am a huge Mary J Blige fan and have been since "What's the 411" in 1992. That sounds like such a long time ago but she's one of the few artist who I have consistently followed along for the last 20 years. She's also one of the few who has remained that long and I feel proud of her. Her new album, The London Sessions, is totally grown up but still incredibly fresh. She has remained … [Read more...]

Do You Think I REALLY Want to Think About #Ferguson Today?

Mike Brown-Ferguson-Black-Mommy-Blogger

My FaceBook timeline has been relative bland this morning. I went to bed early last night and closed my computer. I didn’t have major discussions lighting it up until I saw this post “I’ve hidden half my timeline today on Facebook.  I rather concentrate on the beautiful things in the world today. Who’s with me?” This is the post that got to me. I responded, “That’s so wonderful that you have that luxury. A lot of mothers like myself would love to but don’t have anything else top of mind this … [Read more...]

Show Me Your Smile – Amazon Giftcard Giveaway

I like your smile $50 Amazon Gift Card

Lately, my life has been a total whirlwind. I've been packing for travel, planning for Christmas parties, working on a fairly large project and just had tons going on, so I'm missing my regular Target runs. I have instead discovered the joy that is Amazon with Free Prime Shipping. It totally makes me smile to get Amazon packages. It's almost getting kind of addictive for me. I have a friend who loves Amazon and when I asked why, she said it saves her money from Target runs because she only … [Read more...]

Christmas is Coming with Stone Mountain Christmas

Stone Mountain Christmas

My family was invited to experience Stone Mountain Christmas. Complimentary admission was provided but all thoughts, opinions and experiences are my own. The cold snap we’ve experienced in Atlanta this week is just the latest reminder that Christmas is coming! I’m sure that we didn’t really any reminders with all the decorations in the stores, toy catalogs in the mail and all the commercial indicators that have been around lately. While I’m not in a rush for the commercial part of … [Read more...]

Leaping Into Learning With The #LeapTv Gaming System

LeapTV Game System Review

          Have you heard about the new #LeapTV system? The avid TV watcher who is my 6 year old certainly has and was oh so eager to try it out. I intentionally did not tell him that we had been selected to host a Leap Into Gaming party until the day before. I shared that we’d have friends over for pizza and to try out a new game. Setting up the game was really easy. I did it during the day while my son was in school. I loved that it was … [Read more...]

The Best Thing at Beaches Resorts – A Family Perspective #BeachesMoms

#BeachesMoms Best Things at Beaches Turks and Caicos

My trip to Beaches Moms was definitely an inter-generational travel experience. My mid-sixties mother traveled along with myself and my sons who are two and six years old. I know what my favorites about the trip were but I posed the question to everyone, “What did you like best about Beaches?” My  mother said that she liked the service.  In the restaurants and just walking around, she felt the staff were genuinely helpful (a big deal since she had my two year old most of the time alone) and … [Read more...]

God as the Ultimate Sponsor

God as the Ultimate Sponsor

Like most of my blog posts I’ve been working on this one in my mind for a few weeks. It came to me as I was getting the boys ready for the day our first day in Turks and Caicos for Beaches Moms.  I have to tell you about my relationship with God. Yes, God. It came to me that while I’ve known God for a long time, I haven’t shared how much I appreciate the role God plays in my family’s life. Sounds like a funny beginning right ? but it’s how I tend to begin my conversations and thoughts about … [Read more...]
