A Trip to the Park…

By January 27th, 202136 Comments

Hola Chicas,

So I went clubbing for Mother’s Day. Don’t judge me. I hadn’t been out since New Years and have always considered drinking lots and dancing poorly (sometimes on the bar) the most fun a girl can have. So when the hubs suggested it Saturday, I was game. Feeling behind the times, I turned to Youtube to learn me the Dougie. It was a pitiful, pitiful sight. Apparently I don’t possess enough rhythm to dance off rhythm? Hubby kept saying, ‘you can’t teach an old dog new dougie’, haha. So after what felt like a strenuous workout, I gave up, took G to the sitter, got sexy-fied, unleashed the hair, and off we went. Still whipping the Mercedes… even valeted that ish. We never valet the Sat, lol.

So here’s a question, why, pray tell, would one think it a good idea to speed up EVERY song? I’m just saying. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Never attempted the Dougie… but I was fresh ;0) The night went on, and after a couple of trips to the bar, and even more trips to the bathroom, I ran into two groups of fierce curlies (a bridal party too!) that recognized me and took some pics that I pray never see the light of day.

Yesterday, on my first Mother’s Day (thanks for the well wishes), I woke up to flowers, cards (even one from Boogie!), chocolates, and bath goodies. I spent the day recovering, watching movies, and unfortunately, finishing up my continuing ed credits for my therapy license. It was a peaceful day, spent with my two favorite people.

This afternoon, after running a bunch of errands, I took Boog to the park for the first time. We were both ready to go after only 20 minutes. Like mother, like daughter. She went from smiling to fussing, and I was ducking and dodging the bees. Check out the view:

    Aw, just too darn cute that lil Boogie is! Memory from the past, I took so many pics of my first born, one day as I was saying Andre smile, he started crying and my mom has a pic of his mouth wide open and mine too trying to get him to hush and smile (like mom, like son)—hahahahaha. He's 29 now. So, I'm just saying! LOL You should write a book, your stories are hilarious!

    You guys sure know how to make a girl feel good! The best part about that 'look' is that I found those pants (which I've been wearing frequently, lol) at American Eagle for 13 dollars! They're slouchy skinny and super friggin cute. I got them in all the colors to compliment my new hat obsession… to complete the hippy chic or urban safari look as hubby calls it, lol.

    Anyway, thanks a million for the super sweet comments and my heart smiles thinking that one day I can show Gia not only what I have written about her, but what you guys wrote too!

    Loves ya!

    Nik I total get the park thing. The babies are always asking to go outside. Bees, mosquitoes, and other buzzing biting things LOVE me. NO WAY! I don’t get how some curlies put honey and other smells good enough to eat in their hair. I wouldn’t even think about it. I already run to the car like Flo Jo!

    The little one is too cute. Too funny about how the speed up songs. I never notice it until I buy the CD and notice that it sounds a lot slower than what I'm used to. And there's a good chance you're in someone's profile pic haha.

  • special_k says:

    Too funny! You know that pics are gonna end up on Facebook so be prepared to untag yourself. And your little one is too adorable!
