I know I'm not a saint. I know I'm not perfect, but while in college(almost 7 years ago) I told God where I wanted to work. The company I wanted to work for. He gave me that much, there have been many occastions where my job was on the line and God has always made a way for me. He has always made me the head. Well, yesterday in this extremely bad economy and tough times, the LORD has blessed yet again. There was another mass layoff at my job and the LORD spared me yet again. I lost alot of buddies and I'm praying for those folks, but in this day and time to have the Favor of the Lord is a huge blessing and I'm glad HE holds me to a high regard to be sure that I'm helping to contribute to my household. Thank you Jesus.

Welp, me, the kiddies and my sis(LaSha) went to Grand Rapids to visit my godsis and my niece and nephew for their bday.
While the trip was very nice, I don't have any pictures of the party or of my godkids(I need Mr. W to buy me a camera). I do have a picture of Money. He was in a mood. I took off his coat and shoes and he took of his socks to relax...my son, he's a mess! Perfect was in heaven, she had the portable DVD player watching Backyardigans while we drove. Check out his little toes!

So, I have become a Youtube fiend. I love everything about hair, going natural, wigs, moisturizing, etc. I have picked up multiple products and I want to learn how to take care of my hair and my daughters without over processing it and losing it. My daughter has very thick hair, somehow over the past few years my hair has thinned, its no big surprise but it bothers me(my mom has thin, but fine hair), and my my natural is coarse. I'm looking for a change, can't wait to see what type of changes my hair goes into. I've been natural for about 3 years now and I'm really thinking of texlaxing my hair. I have a goal of BSL(bra strap length) hair in 2 years. I have some pictures of my protective styles and I have pictures of Perfect's natural hair. I will update every 3 months of my hair journey:)
So, I have been working out super early in the morning with the hubby and it has been crucial. I am so mad at myself because I have no self control when it comes to food. It is seriously my drug, when I'm stressed, happy, and uncertain I eat. I am currently trying to focus on what's best for me. This is one of the hardest tasks ever. I want to get on track to lead a healthy lifestyle, for my babies sake. It is an everyday journey that I am battling. Here are a few pics of me and I'm going to search for some 'back in the day' pics. I have a master plan I do, but this is tough. The pictures were taken in November and January respectively...I'm only 5'2, I gotta make something happen.

This year, I have decided to be a jack of all trades! With the help of (Youtube, who knew) it's definitely coming to pass.
I'm currently focusing on my daughter and my natural hair and baby!!!! Let's just say who knew this could be a challenge. I am trying to grow my baby girls hair out and have been trying multiple items.
My son Money(my husband has 'affectionately' named him and my daughter Perfect(again, the hubby), 11 months and 2.5 years. My husband, Mr. W(married 5.5 years are the true loves of my life! This is my journey into weight loss, natural hair growth as well as life changes and updating on my children's growth and process.
