I've also inspired a few coworkers and my sister to use the App and the list keeps growing for the breast ca 5k. I think I am just gonna run, that was my goal and I am gonna do it. Hopefully I will be able to see my friends that will walk while there. I think my sister will try to run to as she started the program and already works out.
Time will fly, I know it. October is just around the corner! Now I will have two special events in October! Can't wait:) it will be my third wedding anniversary and my first 5k, not to mention my sister is having a vow renewal in Jamaica a couple weeks after the run!

-4 rosemary springs
1.5 medium sized garlic cloves
handful of lemon thyme
3 cap fulls of olive oil
I used an oven bag of course. The turkey breast was about 8lbs and its been in my freezer since the winter lol.
This was the most juicest flavorful turkey I have ever encountered. I was initially hesitant to not add any seasoning, but im glad I went with my gut. No additional seasoning necessary. My house smells wonderful like I'm some fancy chef! Lol
Also, I am happy to say that I am just minutes away from registering for the breast ca walk/5k in october. Im a little torn because I really want to be able to do the 5k, but so far everyone who has decided to join me wants to walk. thats cool, it will be fun to walk with the gals. But when I first got the thought to do the run, I wanted to be able to do just that, run. Anyways, I will probably walk because I want to be with those that agreed to join me. Either way, I will be supporting and great cause and doing something great for my health

Lol but on a more serious note, let's admit I am pretty cool. There's so much to discuss I'm gonna have to make this post my outline
- fell off the bandwagon with many things: prayer, meditation, sit ups/ push ups
- mud run. Yeah I did it! Not the whole thing though.... Sad I know. I mistakingly took a short cut didn't realize it until I somehow got ahead of jarred and others who were actually running. But I'm inspired nonetheless. My sister says she wants to do a regular race with me and one of my brothers agreed. I looked up the breast ca run, it's in October and I'm sure I can be prepared by then
- my hair! Just retwisted today
- uggghhhhh I drove from Brooklyn to home. Anyone who's knows me knows that I don't do long drives, bridges, or toll booths, but I had to do it yesterday and I survived!
More details to come on everything mentioned. It's 1 am and I have to be up at 6. What am I doing? Lol

Last year I paid for additional picture storage through google. It seems as if weeks after I received a fraudulent charge. I had to cancel my credit card. Fast forward to this year, I get an email asking if I want to renew my storage. Of course I do! But.... I click the link to renew and google is asking for a form of Id! They want me to upload a pic of a current driver license or passport. Apparently this is required because they tried to charge my card and it was declined because I canceled it. So here I sit at 1 am eating a cup of noodles trying to figure out what I am gonna do. I refuse to submit id to google. Lol

I got this style from
I figured I'd give it a try on Ava's hair. Her hair had already been in a similar style so I thought I'd just keep up the trend. Of course the style had to be remixed to suit us, but it still came out cute. Quick, easy, cute, and Ava liked it too. I am trying to get her used to the idea that she doesn't need a head full of barrettes to look pretty. So far Its working because the other day she took all of her 3 barrettes out because she wanted to look like me :) anyways heres the style......,
It all started when I forgot my lunch that I had purposefully prepared last night for work today. Anyways, I travel to the cafeteria which I knew wouldn't go well. The options were buffalo wings, huge chicken thighs, pizza, and bogus Indian food. I was already nauseous so I just wanted to throw up. When I walked in. I cant really do meat with bones anymore because I find it gross, lol. I traveled outside to one of the many lunch trucks. I settled for a grilled chicken pita with honey mustard. While waiting for my lunch, it started pouring! I got a good laugh at everyone running for cover, lol. I made it back ti the cafe and ate my lunch with about 15 minutes to spare :) I chaotic with the fam via FaceTime and am now updating my blog. And they though I was taking 45 minutes? He'll no I need my hour! Lol
This was suppose to post Friday when I was actually at work lol

After a " bad hair day earlier in the week, I braided my hair up, did a few flat twist and loved my hair again. I was seriously considering taking the locs out earlier this week. They were just so frizzy and not laying down right. In also did a trial retwist with aloe ver gel and it didn't work out... I was discouraged.
Fast forward to tonight, I just washed my hair then added Shea moisture curl smoothie for a braid out. My hair had been feeling really coarse and roughy. I can't tell if it's dryness because it's not itchy and the ends feel soft. Hopefully I just needed a wash and my hair will be back to it's old self again. Check out how it looks like my hair is loose!

Today I went shopping with my sister. Macy's was having a sale and we wanted to take advantage. To get the best of the sale you need to use your Macy's charge. No problem we both have one. I get to the register and my card is declined! My card was declined because i was close to maxing it out. The cashier offered to call costumer service because i told her i had just paid my bill. Turns out, my payment was late. My options were to pay $35 on my bill and then i could charge what i wanted. I could have done that but then i would max my card out. I could have out the clothes back but, Out of shame and being spoiled, I paid cash for my clothes. I learned a lesson my husband has been telling me about for years. I always forget to pay my credit card bills, smh. So I end paying late fees and finance charges galore. It's crazy because I always have the money to pay it but I just forget. I have reminders in my phone and everything, I just ignore them and say I will do it later. I've decided to have my credit card payments sent from my bank. This is an easier option for me. I have to set up online bill payments every month so I use the program a lot. When I log in, I will see a list of all my bills and the date I last paid it. This will work wonders for me, my biggest problem is that I need everything in one place. Problem solved, now I just need to do it, lol
Anyways, did y'all know you can pay your macys bill right at the register? The cashier suggested this to my sister. Not only did my sister get the sale price, but she paid the amount she spent in the store immediately and now she doesn't have to worry about late fees or finance charges. Believe me I took notes, lol
Lastly, I got home and out of curiosity checked online to see the prices of what I brought. I paid $80 for a dress that was online for $55 and a shirt was $40 in the store but $25 online. It's easy to guess what I did, I ordered the exact same things online and got in the car and returned the in store purchases. Oh yeah, I got free shipping too :) many lessons learned today!
