Doing nothing is better than being busy doing nothing

As I sit thinking about how the next year of my life is going to change, (expecting baby number 2 and having 2 under the age of 2) all I can do is plan on how busy I will be.Photobucket  However being busy can put a drain on your physical and emotional state, causing a very negative chain reaction to your love life, and family dynamic. So before possibly getting overwhelmed, try a few simple steps to make everyone’s life a little simpler.  
I am a firm believer in using your time wisely, and this of course will help with a productive lifestyle. Maintaining a balance of harmony can become possible with getting things accomplished, resulting in less stress! My husband’s favorite saying is “Happy Wife, Happy Life”… and it’s true! When Mommas not happy, nobody is happy! So don’t allow chores to pile up, try to plan as much as possible, organize, organize, and ORGANIZE! 


I have a girlfriend who carries a small notebook with her at all times, to write down lists, thoughts, chores, etc. Isn’t that best idea ever?!?! *Head to your nearest Dollar Store or Drug store and pick up one of those small pocket size notebooks. Throughout the day write down anything that comes to mind, whether you just remember you ran out of ketchup, or you want to organize your thoughts, and/ or write out that to-do-list that sits in your head; organization is one of the solutions to being productive, and happy!

Another key note is perhaps asking for the help you need to lighten your load- which again is essential to your happiness.

Now on a side note, if your significant other is not being a big help when it comes to pitching in, then it may be time for a talk. A nice calm peaceful talk, before things get to an unhappy place.

Starting a Blog- To share or NOT to share

I've always been one to over share, however now that's I'm older, and there's more to my life then what I feel the world needs to know- drawing boundaries are going to be fun yet difficult. To Share or NOT To Share? Let this journey begin! 


I am truly excited to start a new blog. Being young black and married has become a growing epidemic. In a time where African Americans are the most uncoupled race, there lies a 52.8% that is married. Now out of half of the black community that is married less than half will succeed, and majority that fail are young; under 30. With an average of 37% of couple who marry under the age of 24 ending in divorce, one might think this number is in my favor right? WRONG! On an average only 9% of couple who marry over  30 years of age end in divorce. So why do you think this is? Could it be the level of maturity? Maybe the stability in income? Or the fact that you know yourself better at 30 then when you were a fast a furious 21 year old. No matter what assumption one might draw this blog is here to help guide you through the life of being young, MARRIED and fabulous. 

I will post great deals, coupons and shopping tips, as well recipe, budget plans/ ideas, and funny stories  and pictures. Date night ideas, relationship advice. And much much more!
