Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.
Yesterday hubby and I dropped Malik off at Bowie State University for a 3-day Freshmen Orientation, needless to say, I am now feeling a little blue. #seperationanxiety
Moms with little ones, please be patient and enjoy these crazy toddler times because soon and very soon, they too will be leaving the nest all too soon.
A few weeks ago hubby and I were supposed to attend a wedding, however, at the last minute I decided not to go…another moody blue day but this is what I was going to wear.
This was a thrifted (new) Phillip Lim for Target dress from Goodwill.
These gorgeous sandals were purchased from Payless and went perfectly with the dress, I would have looked ‘fly’ right?
This beaded evening purse has been in my closet since forever, as a matter of fact I took it to my High School prom!!
Finding this button in the purse reminding me that I started college in 1979 brought on more tears. Wow, my youngest is starting college in 2014, and me it was 35 years ago – my how time flies!
Okay, I am going to stop being depressed that my “baby bird” has left the nest, instead I will be glad and thankful to know that he is growing into manhood and pray that God watches over him.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
If you are the parent of a high school student who will be attending the prom this year, you’ve probably heard about “Promposals“. If not, let me explain, a promposal is when a guy, or girl asks someone to the prom but in a unique way using a sign, clothing, a prop or a photo.
These teenagers can get really creative with songs and videos and there are even promposal pics on Instagram and Tumblr as well as Twitter, Facebook and of course YouTube, just Google it using the hashtag #promposal.
A few weeks ago when I first heard about this, I rushed home to ask my son, but I was too late as he had already promposed to his date. (and no, that wasn’t a bottle of alcohol).

I think they are cute as long as the teens don’t go overboard or take them too seriously like a marriage proposal. Over the top promposals are not necessary and may cause stress to others who may not want to or can’t do them.
Senior Proms are a special once-in-a-lifetime event but they are also costly, so there’s no real need to add additional expenses into the mix.
What do you think?
Don’t forget to come back at 6:00 p.m. for the Weekend Wind-Down Party!
Stay Blessed – No Stress in 2014!

Our son, Malik will be graduating in May and he hadn’t even mentioned the Senior Prom, so last week when I asked if he was going, he just shrugged his shoulders and said, “yes”. I know having a son is much different than having a daughter, because by now she would have been talking non-stop about the Prom, and probably would have already found a dress.
Knowing me, I’d be more excited than she because both my Junior and Senior Prom dresses were handmade and neither were very good. I would want her dress to be much better so that the event would be more memorable. Thankfully, for mothers with Prom-bound daughters there are beautiful and affordable options available online at JenJenHouse.com
JenJenHouse.com, carries a large selection of Prom Dresses to fit almost every budget and size, there’s even a custom “Made to Order” option available for many of the styles.
At JenJenHouse.com you’ll find Prom Dresses from sassy to sophisticated in various lengths, styles, and colors to suit many tastes. They also carry a large selection of accessories to complete the perfect Prom outfit.
My son doesn’t have a steady girlfriend so at this point all he needs to worry about is matching his shirt and tie to his date’s dress color.
She on the other hand will have an opportunity to chose any color either to match the High School’s theme or if they are going as a group to find one that is different from the others.
