Who is Paying?

That said, will you be paying for the dresses or do you require the bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses? Although, it is more common for the bride to pay for the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Here’s Ryan Gosling story & pics

Matingas

She’s at a job interview right now. Then she should be on her way back to me.

It’s the longest we spent apart since we met. Just one night.

I got so used to her. To us. That now is odd for her not to be around. And I overslept. By a lot.

Bisho took her place in bed. Hey. I love my cat. But I prefer her by a lot.

I slept all over the place. And woke up several times in the morning. Just to be like… wait… have I been dreaming for the past week or so?!

Nah. My room is extremely clean.

I don’t even remember what it used to be like. Well… it was very dirty. But I ignored the fuck out of it.


Sunday was great.

Not only is my blog infested with cheesiness. Now my Instagram story line is too. First video story…

  I stood in line anxiously awaiting my Mini Shredded Chicken Quesadilla.  I could see the Taco Bell employee from where I stood – lost in the world of her iPhone.  I sighed and took in the situation around me.  A little girl bounced behind me, begging her mother to buy her more of the crunchy cinnamon fry things (no idea what they’re called but they were a highlight of my childhood).

It wasn’t until I heard, “they don’t know how good they have it,” that I noticed the conversation of two men to my right.  One was a veteran.  One was an emergency responder from New York City.  Here they stood, in the same Taco Bell as I, waiting on the same employee to cook their food (it’s worth noting that my total wait time was 22 minutes.  Just sayin’.)

“These kids today.  They complain when they can’t speak…

Make Your Bed, Change the World (BLW Contributor)

If you can’t do the little things right, you’ll never be able to do the big things right. And, if by chance you have a miserable day, you’ll come home to a bed that is made–that you made! And a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better. So, if you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.” Admiral William H. McRaven, United States Navy

When I was a kid, my mom and grandmother constantly stayed on my case about making my bed every morning before school. “Did you make your bed,” they’d ask, knowing the answer already. After my standard gruntmoansigh, and eye roll, I would usually go do it. But, it seemed such a pointless task. No one but me slept in my bed. No one but me even saw my bed unless I had…

The Lab and the Basset Hound (BLW Contributor)

Several years ago my husband Steve and I were huddled downstairs during a snow storm the week after Christmas.  At some point that evening, we went out to the garage to get more drinks and check the snowfall.  I turned on the outside light to see how much snow had already fallen and saw two dogs, a Black Labrador and a Basset Hound, standing in the yard.

Black Woman, Where does it Hurt? EVERYWHERE

academichustler1975

Tonight is New Year’s Eve and I just finished watching the movie, Fences starring Viola Davis and Denzel Washington with one of my girlfriends and it left me speechless.  I went through so many emotions…hate, love, joy, and many more.  It was a great and powerful movie and I really enjoyed it.  The resilience that was expected of black women is still expected today. That’s what was heartbreaking about the movie and why my feelings were contorted in my mind.  I will not bash Denzel’s character because its more than him and his affair and his failed “hoop” dreams.  Throughout the movie it was always about Denzel’s character, Troy Maxson, as a father, and husband along with the emotional invisibility of Rose (his wife) for the past 18 years of their marriage.

Rosein the 1950s is the Rose in the 2000s because our “perfect” role has never…

Equal Opportunity in the home? (BLW Contributor)

When men and women both work outside the home to equally earn an income, should they equally share the household work and tend the children?

Growing up in the south at a time when there were definite ‘woman’ jobs and ‘man’ jobs, I saw my mother as a stay-at-home mom handle all the responsibilities of feeding the family, keeping the house which included laundry, mending and making much of our clothes, and often while working alongside Dad and us kids in the fields. When the family arrived home from working in the fields she had the meal prepared or quickly prepared it, and after we ate she cleaned the kitchen (with help from us kids) while Dad rested. I watched as she worked until bedtime and rose the next morning to cook a big breakfast for the family and spend another day working in the garden, preserving hundreds of jars…
