Black is Back!!

When I got married...fifteen years ago, my wedding colors were black, ivory and red. My dress and my dad's tux were ivory and my bouquet was two dozen long stem red roses wrapped with red ribbon. My husband wore a black tux with a red tie and cummerbund. My bridesmaids wore black suits with ivory collars. The groomsmen wore black tuxes with black ties and cummerbunds. Well...I suppose I was a black girl way back then!!

My first wedding cost about $3,000. The budget for my next wedding is going to be $2,000 or less. Now that I have found and embraced my inner Marquita...I am convinced that I can throw a LAVISH event on a pocket lint budget.

When we renew our vows, I want to do it like a REAL black girl!! I want to make EVERY black girl in the world proud!! I think that the actual ceremony will be VERY to close friends and family and of course all of you will be invited. So the invitations will be to the LAVISH reception that I am planning. Here are a few invites that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE:

Picture 1.
Picture 2.
Picture 3.

Picture 4.

Which one do you like them most??? Let me know. Leave a comment and tell me which number you like and the invite that gets the most votes is the one that I will re-create and post pictures of.

Here are a few ideas for the reception:

I LOVE them ALL!!! This could be the tackiest reception in the world. Actually, there are elements of each that I like and given the right amount of time...I could easily incorporate them into a FANTASTIC table and atmosphere. I must admit that flower arranging is my kryptonite...It kills me every time. Soooooo....I expect a great part of my budget will go to The Pained Daisy. I am sure that she can hook a sistah up!!

Did I mention to y'all that I can make and decorate cakes?? Stay tuned for my next post where I show you pictures of the cakes that I like and the STUNNING outfit that I plan to wear...

Don't forget to shoot me a comment and tell me which invitation that you like the most so that I can create it...The one with the most votes wins. You have from today until Tuesday, 4/14 to vote.

Enough is ENOUGH!!!

I am tired y'all...I mean REAL tired!!

Here is a list of some of the things that I am MOST tired of:

1. Bills-BIG ones like our mortgage and little ones like $1 bills. I need more $100 bills in my life...what about you?? I am also sick and tired of people named know who I am talking about...Bill Collector, Bill Consolidator, Online Bill-ing, Bill To Sender...they all annoy me!!

2. Kids-My kids, your kids, his kids, her kids, their kids, New Kids on the Block and baby goats!! I am tired of all of the kids in the whole wide world!! Now don't get me wrong...I love my kids to Resse's Pieces and back...but I NEED a break from them!! They have been on spring break for THREE weeks. Sweet Jesus...what does "Year Round School" really mean?? Well I can tell you what it doesn't mean...YEAR ROUND SCHOOL!!! Maybe this should be number 1??

3. Adults-You, me, them, us...ALL of 'em are starting to make me SICK!!

4. Laundry-this is such a vicious cycle!! It never friggin ends!! Do you realize no matter how much laundry you will NEVER have every thing that you own clean at the same time?? Why Lord...WHY??

5. Cleaning-see number 4!! I have come to realize that no matter how much I dust, wash dishes or does not matter but for about 15 seconds! Fifteen seconds is about how long it takes from the time I cut the vacuum cleaner off until all of the dust that I stirred up with the vacuum cleaner settles back onto the furniture and I need to dust again! And dishes are such a SCAM! Who needs 'em?? As soon as you use's dirty and you have to wash it...a vicious cycle I say...A VICIOUS CYCLE!!!

6. Cooking-What's the point?? Are we ever really full?? And it is soooo time consuming...I mean really, you spend two hours cooking and the food is eaten in 13 seconds. And then the next question out of someones mouth (usually number 2) is, "Whats for dessert?" H-E-L-L-O...didn't you just finish eating?? And now you want more food...that I am going to have to prepare??? NOT!!!

(side note: Number 2 just came into my room running full speed. She stopped right next to me and started hopping on one foot while panting "Mommy!! Momm-yyy!! MOMMY." I asked her what she wanted and her answer was, "I just wanted to say Hi." Understand now why number 2 should actually be number 1???)
7. Sleeping-I don't get enough of it and I spend way to much time thinking about it. Not sure how to fix this one!! I should be sleeping right now but...number 2 and 3 are depending on me to do number 4 and 5 before it is time for number 6.

OK...well I have ranted enough...And now it is time for me to do something about it...I have made an Executive Decision!!

I am going on vacation...ALONE!! Unless, of course, some of you want to join me??

Now, those of you who know me, know that it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to pick up and go anywhere alone...I can't even go to the bathroom alone, let alone half way across the world...So I have decided to go on a virtual's Go!!!

I just closed my bedroom door (and locked it, there are now 3 members of number 2 knocking on it...something about a doughnut...only God knows...). OK, the "Doughnut Heist of 2009" has been resolved (see CNN for details)...

I am at my computer (which for this vacation is actually me Teletransporter) and I am about to be beamed up and away to...Seychelles and the North Island Luxury Resort PLEASE join me on this MUCH needed vacation of the mind....

Seychelles’ 115 granite and coral islands extend from between 4 and 10 degrees south of the equator and lie between 480km and 1,600km from the east coast of Africa in the western Indian Ocean.
I am already feeling more relaxed just knowing that I am going to be soooo far away from numbers 1-6...but there is more!!!

Here is an aerial view of the island...WOW!!!

Now that we are here...We have a HUGE decision to make...What to do first???....Uhmmmm...Decisions Decisions...

I think we should check into the Villa first...

Now that we are all comfy and have changed into our swimsuits (oh...for this excursion...I am now a PERFECT size 8 so my swim suit is HOT!!! But, it is NOT a thong). I think we should go to the Piazza and see what's going on...

Perhaps I will sit here and read a book...what do you think...there is room for you too! Did you bring a book too??

Well, if not...don't worry. We can just borrow one from the library...

I just finished the last chapter of my finished yet?? How about a dip in the main pool?

Why don't we go shower, change and have lunch on the beach??

Gurrrllll...who are these people at our table?? Oh no she di'int sit these people at OUR table....But that's OK...let's eat at the East Beach instead...It has more atmosphere anyway!!

Since this is vacation...I think that I will start with dessert!! What are you going to have???

Your food looks good too...what is that?? Can I taste it??

Yummmm....I wish my husband was here...He LOVES seafood!!

I am stuffed...what should we do now??? Ohhh...I know...How about a bike ride around the beach? You game??

Well...we could go snorkeling if you'd like?? Or do you want to wait and save that for tomorrow??

What time is it??? is almost time for dinner. I have an about a trip to the spa before we eat again? Or better yet...let's have a Spa Dinner...and a nice soothing massage...

I don't know about you...but BOY could I use a good rest!! I am going back to the villa take a warm bath and turn in for the night! What about you?? What are you going to do??

Well that was just day one...I honestly believe that seven days of this might kill me!! If I could have that kind of freedom and pampering everyday for seven days...I could die a VERY HAPPY woman...

Well, it is time to check out...and low and behold...look who is here...Our good friend Bill...this little LUXURY getaway has set us back AT LEAST (and I stress the words "AT LEAST") $3,723.19 per person per night. This rate does include EVERYTHING except our spa services and air fare. Our grand total...for two people to stay at this resort for seven days is...


Welcome back to REALITY...I hope that you enjoyed the trip...I know that I did...
