Pink & Green, Black & Gold, and Sparkles


Hey, y'all!  I've been wanting to blog all week but just could not find the time. It's been kinda whirlwind-ish.  Two cool field trips at work this week, plus an out-of-town, overnight basketball trip with the fam have kept me busy.  But all of that's over now, and tomorrow will be my first normal day this week.  AND it's Friday.  Yes.

What have we been up to?

Well, last weekend I worked our school's Miss Senior Class beauty walk. This year 78 girls competed and did a great job.  I've never been a pageant girl and am pretty sure if I could do it all over again I still wouldn't be.  I was SO nervous for the girls. I've been crowned before, but back in my day you won a title by gaining classmates' votes.  NOT by wearing a beautiful gown, impressing judges, speaking to an audience of hundreds of people, and answering questions out of the infamous fish bowl.  These girls are brave, and I was so proud.

And then they started the ceremony with THIS song while showing toddler pictures of all the girls. I almost lost it, y'all.  Sweet pictures during a sweet song that made me think of my precious time with MY sweet little one.  And how she won't always be this little...whew! :-(

(Don't listen to that song if you're a mama of a little one.  Unless you want to cry.)

The Top 30

Also this week, my husband's basketball team had a playoff game on the campus of my alma mater - pretty exciting.  I don't get to visit the campus often (the last time was two years ago), and I was so impressed with all the new developments -- including a BRAND NEW stadium.  I wanted to visit a special professor and an old boss in the College of Business, but didn't get a chance.  

Next time, though.  'Bama State was good to me.



For some reason I wanted to stop by my sorority stone, too, so I could get a picture of M with it.  


I am not an active member for a couple of reasons, but there's a possibility that one day M will choose to be.  I will not encourage nor discourage her from joining a sorority (she'll have my support either way), nor will I try to influence her choice of sorority.  But JUST IN CASE she chooses to follow my footsteps and become an AKA, I will have this sweet little picture to show her and compare to the one 15 years from now. :-)

Future AKA?

Anyhoo, what are y'all doing this weekend?  I'll be de-cluttering as usual, loving on my little one, reading, and hopefully finally watching my DVR of Beyonce's documentary and Oprah interview.  I've heard her Atlanta concert sold out in five minutes...womp!  Maybe I can talk the hubby into taking me to see her at the Essence Festival this summer...

Anyhoo, have a great weekend, y'all!

Love,
G
