A New Post, A Birthday And Spring Oh My!

What better way to jump back into blogging then a post about my birthday and Spring?

I am so ready for Spring!! This winter was brutal. Not weather wise like the East Coast has suffered, but emotionally brutal. I may really have S.A.D.S. because this may have been the most depressive winter of my life! And it didn't help that a series of bad things happened to compound those down emotions. :(


One of things that I like about my birthday besides the gifts lol is that (this year) it is one day before Spring starts. Spring for me this year is hope and new beginnings.

Hope for a better year

Hope for an exciting career.

and Hope for a better life.

I'm just so ready to shed the dark cloud of

bad feelings and down emotions like a winter coat.

Depression really does skew your view of life. Everything becomes all bad.

For a Wednesday my birthday was not bad. I'm off work so I was really able to enjoy the day. I decided last year that I will take my birthday off for the rest of my life. As it turns out, that's a GREAT decision. It really is terrible to work on your birthday.(unless you love your job) It's YOUR day and it is there for you to be celebrated. I must remember that.

The gifts are still coming in... but I bought a Huetiful Hair Steamer for myself. I've read such great things about how it helps to extra condition your hair to promote healthier hair and growth -- so we shall see.

I saw a tweet on Twitter about a Nate Berkus for Target gold stapler and I LOVE Nate! So I had to go see. Of course I fell in love as soon as I saw the stapler and had to buy it. So gift number 2 for me. I think I need gold staples too!

Clearly from the blog change you can see that I LIKE gold. Bling!

The person I was with felt like I needed a shower wrap and head wrap to go with my steamer. Believe me, I do not stop people from buying me things on my birthday ;) and the delicious Ikat print is AMAZE! It will definitely be a spa like experience when I wear them.

The rest of my day was completed with dinner and a movie. I was finally able to see the Ice Cube and Kevin Hart flick Ride Along and it was funny! I think Kevin Hart is hilarious and his star is shining!

So this concludes my first post in 2014! :)

Ooops I almost forgot... My BIRTHDAY SONG!!!
This year I took it all the way back with some Tupac!

Well I'm glad to hear that you had a happy birthday. I usually work on my birthday, but this year I was off as well.

It's hard to write a blog on a regular basis isn't it? I feel you.

Hey Reggie!! Thanks for stopping by! Yes, my birthday was nice. Glad you took yours off. You should continue doing so. :)

It wasn't so much hard more so I just didn't have a desire to. I lost my motivation...

Right now I'm motivated. :)
