RJ’s 35th Surprise Bday In NOLA

I didn’t grow up celebrating birthdays. So anytime it’s a birthday, I try to find ways to go all out for my little family. This year my husband celebrated his 35th milestone birthday. Of course this allowed me the opportunity to be more go getter when it came to planning his surprise.

2021 San Francisco 9 Year Anniversary Trip

As me and the mister celebrate 9 years of marriage, we decided to get outside of Texas on an adventure I have been wanting to take for the last 2 years. Prior to Covid, I had been eager to visit the Giant Redwoods out in California. There’s something about just being small and seeing Gods work in creation that attracted me to the whole idea behind this particular trip.

The Fine Hair Friendly Wash And Go

Me and wash and gos have NEVER got along! I thought I had done everything right; watch the YouTubers, follow the hair gurus, experiment with different hair products…NONE 👏🏾OF 👏🏾IT 👏🏾WORKED👏🏾 So I gave up! I threw in the towel (or the old cotton t-shirt if you’re a natralista). I walked away from wash and gos and didn’t look back.

Birth Story: Amariah Jai

Amariah’s birth actually starts 4 days before she came. On Sunday October 13th, I began to get something called Prodromal Labor Contractions. What are those you ask? Nature’s cruel joke is the best way I can put it. Basically, they are all the strength of real contractions, however, they don’t dilate the cervix significantly or at all. Sounds fun right?

A Virtual Birthday At Neon Noir

For the misters birthday I always try to find something adventurous to do. This year was no different. He had been talking about buying a PlayStation VR console (so ‘spensive). After looking at some reviews, I decided it might be a better idea to test drive the VR experience to see if it was even something worth investing in. Not only did we find a fun new way to hang out, we had a blast test driving our beginner stage VR skills.

Neon Noir is owned by Micah, a real chill super gamer that walks you every step of the way in the gaming process. When we first arrived, we went straight to a room and got the virtual walk through.

What’s really great is Micah let’s you own the experience. Once you’re in the VR world he hops in and guides you, but really allows you freedom to have fun and explore.

There are several level one games that we both got to play. My favorite game was an “Angry Birds” type experience where you catapult orbs into stacked boxes in a warehouse to destroy stuff and cause damage. The goal is to cause the largest amount of dollar destruction resulting in your firing 😂. BEST. GAME. EVER.

Hubby really enjoyed what we are going to call “The Spaceship Game” because we can’t remember the actual name. It’s basically like Galaxian, but a much more hyped up virtual version. You have a little space ship and the goal is to not get hit while destroying the enemy. Personally this game got me exercising due to the physical squatting, ducking, and ninja moves you have to preform in order to avoid getting hit lol!

We both left the gaming experience already planning our next visit. It’s a really chill local spot and Micah is really nice and easy to work with. It’s also BYOB! So next time you’re in town and looking for something new to try, definitely add this to your list. You won’t be sorry!

Dallas Date Night: Sweet Tooth Hotel 1955

Hubs and I are always looking for local adventure. Sometimes we find cool stuff in funky town, but this time we found a fun interactive art exhibit in Dallas that was for real out of this world!

I had no idea what to expect because my husband can sometimes be notorious for super secret surprises and this year was no different. Join in on the adventures of the evening.

A Vacation For The Record

When I think of vacation, I think of blue skies, a nice sandy beach, warm ocean water, and of course this year for our first family vacation, I had thoughts of us being in optimal health to enjoy all that lovely weather.

Well…(and I’m sure it won’t look like it from all the following pictures) the last thing on my mind was being sick on vacation, but that’s exactly what happened. Our first family vacation and it was full of runny noses, sneezing, coughing, sore throats, and basically fighting to enjoy all the good that comes with taking a much needed break.

I’m not talking about just myself. We were all sick wit’ it. However, we still managed to have fun at the end of the day.
