Update...Christmas Break

Good evening Lovelies,

It's one of the best times of the year. I enjoy the time spent surrounded by family and friends. Christmas was spent at my mother's, Friday I rested, yesterday I am enjoying time with friends for game night (I did okay...I guess I have to get used of not winning all the, I never really win.) Today, two of my Godbabies came over shop I've had the whole day entertaining and playing with them.

I'm truly thankful and blessed that I can spend times with others.

Thank you for following us this year, thank you for your support, thank you for being here. I hope you continue to following us, subscribe to us, join us on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram.

Talkative Tuesday: Merry Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas and Good evening Lovelies,

Below is my Talkative Tuesday video, enjoy.

Sonya's Christmas Playlist part 2

Good early morning Lovelies,

Sunday I discussed Christmas songs, my Monday post was supposed to include the playlist below. I was so sleepy I think I was sleep before 8pm. (that's probably why I'm awake and posting at almost 2am).  I hope you enjoy my playlist. I hope it motivates you to sing along and also share with family and friends.


I guess I need to get some sleep so I won't fall asleep again. Check back tonight, I'm still planning to post my Talkative Tuesday later.

Christmas Carols

Good evening Lovelies,

I begin listening to Christmas song as soon as November. I love most songs and look forward to this time of year. My favorite cd's are The Temptations and Christina Aguilera's. This Christmas is my favorite this year although I love a good Silent Night, The First Noel, and O Come All Ye Faithful.

What's your favorite song(s)?

Two Cousins, Cut from the Same Cloth

Good evening Lovelies,

We are 2 days always from Kayla's 40th birthday. I decided I would share a few pictures and a couple of facts.

Fact 1: No matter what's going on, we will always support and be there for one another. We have the family love that doesn't go away.

Here are pictures from 2 of the most important days of our lives.

Fact 2: We will always have a drink in our hands whenever we're together, lol.
Love you Cousin

Talkative Tuesday: Three Days Away

Good evening Lovelies,

I just want you to know that I hope you celebrate your birthday like Kayla and I do. We're silly (but serious) when it comes to acknowledging our day. Let us know your day and we will shout you out and represent with you.

Here's my Talkative Tuesday video (make sure you don't forget the thumb up, lol)

Kayla's Fabulous 40... just 4 looooooooog days away.

Good evening Lovelies,

We are four days away from Kayla's special day.

Today I think I will share 4 of my favorite memories.

1. First memories: being on UWF campus with her (our nicknames ended in "tho", Kayla was Kitho and I was Metho, lol) not a long story but we would pass out surveys to people on campus. It was funny, totally off the wall, typical college kids surveys. Btw Kayla, I still have the surveys lol.

2. Kayla coming to Detroit. She was between 14 - 16 years old and we had a ball hanging out downtown. I think we are always up from a challenge because we were challenging each other left and right.

3. Our Cousin Tiffany's bridal shower weekend: we had a ball. Not only was Tiffany's shower a lot of fun, we had fun. That's the weekend, we got matching tattoos. That was truly a fun-filled celebratory weekend.

4. Planning Kayla's wedding: All I want to say is TRAVEL PLEASE! Kayla lived in Atlanta, I was in Detroit, Hubby 2B in DC, and wedding in Florida. Almost every weekend for 2 months I was either flying to Atlanta, DC or Pensacola. We did so much planning (and partying). It was truly a great time that I was able to share in Kayla's special time.

Those are four of my favorites although we have many more...

Continuing the count...
Get ready Cousin :)

Let the Countdown Begin

It's coming, coming, coming...

Without a doubt, I know she will be...





The Month of all Months!!!

Good Afternoon Lollipops……..      


December is a fabulous month in my eyes; probably one of the best months to be completely honest.  Why you ask? Although I am not a huge fan of cold weather December holds a special place in my heart.  The obvious reason being Christmas; a time when we hold our loved ones dear and celebrate friends, family, and for some, Jesus’ birth.  But December is also special for me because it is my birth month….6 days before Christmas.  I usually am in celebratory “Tizzy” by the time New Year’s rolls around.  This December will be extra special as this is the year I turn the big 4.0.  In 7 days to be exact.  I’m not feeling particularly overjoyed with this birthday but I am determined to be brave in the face of impending depressionL.  I have lots of activities planned over the next month to hopefully distract me from the inevitable.  The day before my Birthday I am having a small Happy Hour get together with my closest girlfriends.   I will be spending my Birthday in Puerto Rico…..4 amazing days of sun, waves, heat, shopping and food galore.  We return home just in time for Christmas day, and relaxing with family and friends.  We have a huge New Year’s Eve celebration planned with 18 of our closest friends to bring FY 15 in with a bang. I’m wrapping up my month long celebration with a visit from my Ruby Rules co-blogger and favorite cousin for a few days in early January.  This is definitely a business trip for her.  We have huge plans in FY 15 for our blog and YouTube channel and we want to get together and begin setting our goals for the New Year.  All in all I am really looking forward to closing out FY 14 in a huge way and bringing in the New Year with renewed optimism and focus for bigger things ahead.  I hope everyone has a fabulous Christmas and New Year; we love each and every one of you for your support.  Here is to another year of great things!!!

Just Another Monday

Good evening Lovelies,

I wanted to do a quick post and let you know about my day. I am so sleepy. For some reason I haven't been sleeping well. Maybe Santa can bring me a bed for Christmas lol. Speaking of beds, now is a good time to share what's on my list for Santa
  • MAC book Pro
  • Nikon or Canon DSLR camera
  • Diva ring light
  • make up
  • Gift cards 
...I guess that's enough posting for now. What's on your list for Santa?

 Today was Makeover Monday and I didn't change anything. I was still the same "Plain Jane"

Good night, enjoy.
