Mommy in Me: Finding Dory


I absolutely loved Finding Nemo and Finding Dory so after me and Chasity saw it in theaters she was very persistent on wanting a fish that looked just like Dory. I’ve never been good with keeping fish alive so I was hesitant at first but when they told me that the fish that we got would be easier to maintain than goldfish I finally gave in. However, 3 dead fish later and we haven’t looked at getting another....but the fact that we got our first pet together and was actually excited is all worth it.

Mommy in Me: Rocks.

It’s been quite some time since I wrote a Mommy in Me for Chasity but there’s a lot that I want to share about her since she has turned 4. Chasity has started a rock collection, every time she leaves the house, goes outside to play, or anything she’s always picking up rocks and putting them in her pocket. I don’t know what her fascination is with rocks but I find it soo cute especially when she brings them to my room for me to keep.

Social Media Reject


Social media n.  is the collective of online communications channels dedicated to community-based input, interaction, content-sharing and collaboration. 

When I was growing up the platforms that we had for social media were Myspace, Crushspot, Blackplanet, and some other forms but that’s just to name a few. I was so excited to be a part of the growing epidemic of social media especially at 16 because after going to the movies, the mall, or even the skating rink there wasn’t much left to do. I’ve met some amazing people over the past 12 years that I’ve been on social media but just like everything else there comes a time when things just aren’t the same. 

The reason for me calling myself the social media reject is because I kind of observe a lot of things on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat but I don’t find myself posting as much. I’m really hoping this year I will be able to express myself and share parts of my life that I may have closed off a long time ago. We are only four days in and I think I’m doing a good job with my blog but I think I need to tackle my Snapchat and Instagram at this point, If you aren’t following me as of yet instagram = @miajlove & snapchat=

I also plan to start with my YouTube channel this year as well as a vlogger so I’m pretty excited about that new journey, my daughter loves watching YouTube with pranks and challenges which definitely fits her personality and I love watching vlogs and beauty channels so we will see what Chasity & I come up with this year.

A Day Late, A Dollar Short.

Happy New Years to Everyone! 2016 was an amazing year but I’m claiming that 2017 is going to be just as amazing if not even better. I have been taking the time to reflect and get my life in order since the new year has started I seriously don’t want this year to be another year of me not sharing and enjoying life as I should.

Hope you guys have been starting off the new year right & get ready for some amazing things this year!
