How many of you have joined Pinterest? A few of my friends were telling me to check out the site, so I finally did this past week. I can't say that I really understand it, but I'm hooked.

You pin items on boards that you name, such as cooking, design, etc.... guess it's similar to doing a vision or dream board.

I love doing interior design... I have found great ideas that I can duplicate for my home from the walls to flooring and furniture. Furthermore, I was kind of in a slump with my meals lately and have found some recipes that look amazing. For example, doesn't this Vegan burger look delicious? You can find the recipe for it at And how cute are these cookie monster cupcakes?One of my granddaughters is a cookie monster addict. Her birthday is next month so I'm going to attempt to make them for her.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…


Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…
