Disneyland and my Week Off...

So..what a wonderful week I have had off.
Monday...celebrated Martin Luther King and everything he stood for! We also took Bre to Johns Incredible Pizza that night for the first time....we had a great time...she got LOTS of tickets and came home with alot of little rinky dink toys! I almost went to jail though....some little boy came up to Bre and cold smacked her in the baby didn't even invite him to him or nothin...he just kinda came out of nowhere and smacked her! I flew up so fast and almost smacked him damn back! OOOHHH I was heated!!!! He was maybe older than her by only a few months. The sad part about it is he possibly gets it from home....anyway, mommy hugged her and kissed her until she was all better....
Tuesday...celebrated AGAIN as Obama was sworn in. So BLESSED and happy to be apart of this HISTORY! My daughter will be able to read about this in her History class when she goes to school.

Wednesday...My sister was down for her birthday, which was on Friday, but she had to we still went to Disneyland. =) Myself, Reg, Bre, Ebony and my mom all went to Disneyland and we had a great time. My mom hadn't been in so long and I was so happy that she hung and was able to share Bre's first experience with her and us. =) (Love you mom...I know you are reading! Proud of ya for hanging!)

Thursday...We returned to California Adventure since they are doin the 2fer (2 for one price for Southern Cali Residents). Ebony had never been to Adventure so we thought we would go for only a few hours. Well...a few hours turned into another ALL day event...which was fine, cause Bre had another good day! She especially loved the Pixar parade...I enjoyed it myself!

Friday...went to breakfast with a friend and glad I did as we were able to have a nice conversation over some good food. =) Got a fill and ran some other errands, basically kicked it for the rest of they day.

Hard to believe I have been off a week and have not been productive at all scrap wise. I tried one day, but it wasn't working out possibly due for a few reasons...wasn't feelin to hot (most likely due to all the stress I have been under), my toddler was VERY curious as to what I was doin, hubby was here and sister. =) I will definitely need to catch up for lost time!

Anyhow...of course I have pics from Disneyland and I will post them here below. They are also on my slide but here are a few of my favs...

Catching Up... 4-1-1


Did Beyonce really say that? Beyonce graces the cover of the new issue of Elle magazine. She talks about her life growing up, and she takes time to diss the first family of music, the Jacksons. Beyonce talked about her upper middle class upbringing and compared her family, the Knowles led by patriarch Matthew Knowles, to the famed Jacksons. Beyonce basically accused Joe and Katherine Jackson of using their children for their own good. The hissing you hear is probably Janet and Michael saying WTH! How dare she?!! Why did Beyonce go there? Doesn’t she realize how bad she dissed the Jacksons? This is not a good time for the family. Janet’s publicity stunts are becoming a bad joke, and she is starting to gain weight again. Michael keeps pretending he’s sick. He’s really just broke. As for the other family members, they are trying to find their way. Maybe this is “Sasha Fierce” talking and not Beyonce. In other Beyonce news, she desperately wants to be added to the ticket for the Obama Inaugural Ball. Aretha Franklin is performing. Rihanna is performing, but as of press time, no Beyonce. Beyonce and her people can’t believe it. She is the hottest chick in the game. Where is her invite? Beyonce is pulling out all the tricks, including recording a song called Proud To Be An American. In the promo shot, she had her face painted red white and blue. Will this get her an invite to the inauguration?

Jennifer Hudson will be making her first public appearance in February after the tragic murders of her family. Hudson will be performing at a music event honoring the legendary Singer/Songwriter Neil Diamond. The festivities are happening during Grammy week. Hudson is up for four Grammy Awards. The 51st Annual Grammy Awards air on February 8th.

Is she or isn’t she? What’s up with Mariah Carey? Is she pregnant by her hubby Nick Cannon? Her spokespeople say no, but she is trying to get pregnant and have a baby next year.

Will Ashanti take it all off? Playboy magazine is offering “Thick Ums” thousands of dollars to pose nude, and she says she is thinking about it.

Since the tragic death earlier this year involving Singer Sean Levert, a new policy has been put in place allowing more flexibility in giving out anti-anxiety medicine. Inmates in Ohio will now be able to get their medication when they need it. Levert’s widow, Angela Lowe, has filed a federal wrongful death suit accusing county officials of neglecting her husband’s medical needs.

After a quiet 2008, Fantasia is looking to get her career back on track. Fantasia has enlisted Singer/Producer Raphael Saadiq to help her with her next album. Saadiq says he wants to give Fantasia an updated, fresh and soulful sound.

The new T.D. Jakes movie, Not Easily Broken, opens in theatres on January 9th. The movie stars Morris Chestnut, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Hart and Wood Harris. Acclaimed Director Bill Duke (Cover, Rage In Harlem, Hoodlum) helmed the movie.

Who knew these two were married?!!! Darryl M. Bell (“Ron” from A Different World) and Tempest Bledsoe (“Vanessa” from The Cosby Show). Bell and Bledsoe have signed on for the new reality show Hollywood Husbands. The show is about men who marry successful women.

Oprah Winfrey is poo pooing reports that she wants to move to Washington, D.C. to be closer to America’s new first family, The Obamas. It was reported that Winfrey was looking to buy a $50 million mansion in D.C. Spokespeople for Winfrey say “The Mighty O” is staying in Chicago.

The Disney movie Old Dogs will feature the final screen appearance of Actor/Comedian Bernie Mac. Mac filmed the movie with John Travolta and Robin Williams before he became sick. The movie will be released in 2009.

The entertainment world lost a legend on Christmas Day with the passing of Earth Kitt. Kitt, 81, died from colon cancer. The Emmy Award-winning actress, singer and dancer led an incredible life that was filled with many highs and lows. She was sexy, sensual and scandalous. Kitt was an outspoken advocate for peace, and she was against the Vietnam War. Some of her most notable work included the Christmas classic Santa Baby, her role as “Catwoman” in the 60’s TV series Batman and a comeback in the 90’s calling Eddie Murphy “Marcus darling” in Boomerang.

Bobby Brown has signed on for another reality show. Brown will be joining the cast of the U.K. show Celebrity Big Brother.

Montel Williams is back on TV. Williams is hosting the infomercial Living Well with Montel. Williams is promoting better health through his topics, books and products.

Congrats to Eva Marcille and Actor Lance Gross. They got engaged over the holidays. Marcille was known as Eva Pigford when she won America’s Next Top Model. She is currently starring in the soap opera The Young And The Restless. Gross stars on the Tyler Perry TV show The House Of Payne. Now speaking of Tyler Perry, his new TV show, Meet The Browns, debuts Wednesday, January 7th 10pm on the TBS Network. And, Dr. Phil makes a cameo in his new movie Madea Goes To Jail, opening in February.

Eddie Murphy is on the prowl again. It was just a year ago, when he made headlines with Producer Tracey Edmonds. Their marriage lasted for 17 days. Now, Murphy is back on the prowl hooking up for Arsenio Hall looking for the ladies.

Two music projects to look forward to next year include a Gospel CD from Singer Heather Headley. The project, Audience Of One, is due in January. India.Arie will also be releasing a new CD.

The movie, Notorious, based on the life of Rapper Biggie Smalls, a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G., is gearing up for its release, which is scheduled for January 16th, 2009. Angela Bassett will be playing Biggie’s mom, Volletta Wallace.

Sinbad and Yolanda Adams will be hosting the 21st Annual Stellar Awards. Gospel Sensation Marvin Sapp is leading the pack with nine nominations, including song and male vocal. The show is taking place January 17th.

WHAT’S THE UNDERGROUND BUZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He’s one of the most eligible bachelors in the world. He’s fine, rich and a sports legend. He’s set to get remarried. Hope he checks his lady’s past. She’s been round the block a couple of times. Hope he gets a prenup.

These two celebrities make a nice looking couple. Despite their looks, marriage and babies, they are a boring couple. To revive interest in their careers, they are leaking stories about problems in their relationship to get headlines. Let’s hope their publicity stunt doesn’t backfire.

Happy New Years!

Just wanted to say Happy New Years to all my friends out there!!! I have been away for a while and I intend to get back on top of things. =)

SO much has been going on...the end of the year was extremely rough for me while not only losing my nana but about 9 days later my daughter lost another great grandmother....just really tough times.

SO..anyway...I was anticipating a new year to begin, JUMPING out of 2008 and gliding into 2009..real slow. =) I started my 1st Sunday off in CHURCH and communion so that was great. After church me and one of my best scrap buds came back and did The Biggest Loser Cardio DVD. The ORIGINAL plan was to walk a mountain here in town called "Little Mountain" Cars do drive on it, but unfortunately there are no sidewalks...Why are you asking? Well it is a good physical challenge to start our year off. We talked and talked and talked about it last year and just never got around to doing it.

So last weekend at a crop one of our other scrap friends kinda tried to put us on blast, questioning to what happened to Little Mountain...and like yeah aren't gonna do it! The HELL WE WEREN'T! LOL! So we set it for today became extremely windy over night! So...that is why we did the DVD instead. We will shoot for next Sunday!
I will try and post a pic of the mountain and the view later.

So anyway...I have a lot of things I wish to accomplish this year to name a few:
  • Putting God first
  • Focus on my marriage
  • Pay off 3 credit cards (which I already did one!)
  • Travel SOMEWHERE this year as a family
  • Do some things with my home, like painting and taking a stab at making over some rooms
  • Get my scrap room together
  • GO TO THE DENTIST....Im scared yall!
  • Eat healthier
  • Try and scrap more

So anyway...speaking of eating healthier..I weighed in this morning and I have lost almost 20 pounds...which is good for me. Yahooo....I have never weighed this in a long time...and no I am not posting the numbers!


I am also hoping to do this 365 photo challenge for the year...I need to post my pics!

**Can anybody give me some suggestions on how to keep track of the pics you take and how you stored them, etc.? I need some pointers... I think what I have in mind is making a folder on the computer specifically for this challenge.

Anyway...Reggie has something planned for us today, not quite sure what, but I hope its something fun!

Talk to you guys later!
