Travel: Chillin’ in Chattanooga.

My Spring Break was earlier this month before social distancing was our reality. I wanted to do something special with my babies so we took a road trip to Chatanooga, Tennessee. And I did it solo dolo. That’s right folks. Just me and the two toddlers, and the trip went really well. I was proud of us.

We went to the Creative Discovery Museum on Saturday and then to the Missionary Ridge Local for a 3-mile round trip train ride on Sunday morning. I don’t know what it is about trains, but kids dig ’em. It was a cool outing for us. And it was my first real train ride too.

Staycation with me.

Atlanta, nightlife

I celebrated 5 years in the marriage game last weekend. It honestly stuns me that I have been married for 5 years already. Life just keeps moving right along. Marriage is challenging at times but it’s also a lot of fun, especially when you’re raising a family together. Here’s to loving, listening, lots of fun, and continued personal growth.

Amanze (the hub) and I did a staycation at the W Atlanta- Midtown. The room was super cute. Then we ate at Chops Lobster Bar. Fiye. I had salmon and Amanze had a seafood trio….it was seriously delicious. Afterwards, we hit up Wiskey Mistress where they played early ’00’s tunes and oldies for not got-damn reason, but it was funny. The ambiance in that place is real cool though.

Where do yal like to go out in Atlanta?

Peace,

House Party: Family Style.

Atlanta, momlife

Here’s a flashback to late May when me & Josie had a joint Luau party at the house. Celebrating her first birthday and my graduation from graduate school. ❤️

Josephine wore that cupcake out! I’m telling you. And if you’re wondering about her outfit, I found it on Amazon and it couldn’t have been cuter on her little body. It was probably $10.

Peace❤️

Visiting: Discovery Park of America

momlife, travel

Traveled to Tennessee earlier this month with my family for my graduation. I was finally graduating with my master’s degree and I was super happy. Still am.

Since we got in a day early I decided the Discovery Park of America, in Union City, TN, would be an amazing outing for the day. I love the more natural theme parks. It was really cool though and my kids were all into it. There are dinosaurs, an outdoor play area, a rock exhibit, Native American artifacts, classic automobiles, actual trains, and so much that we didn’t get to see. I would recommend it if you’re in that area.

Side note: Yes, I cut my hair and dyed it blonde. It just had to go so that was that. Simple.

What are some other family friendly parks or attractions that you would recommend in the States?

The Graduate: From Martin to Memphis

Career, travel

Shawty just graduated!

I’m so happy to say that I just received my Master of Science in Education from the University of Tennessee- Martin. I studied to be a school counselor so that meant lots of classes, residency, practicum, and two school internships. And I’m walking away with a 4.0 and two babies. Couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.

From graduation, me and my family headed to Memphis. BBQ & Beale Street basically. Had a lot of fun on Beale Street though. That was the longest time I’ve spent in Memphis and I got a real sense of the people while out that night. And my family basically got caught in a drive by shooting, so there’s that, but I thought Memphis was cool. Life is wild tho.

Still on cloud 9. Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Much love.
