Guess what?? Come on… guess! My favorite time of the year is upon us; so to
officially kick off the Christmas shopping season, I'm having a toy giveaway! Yippee!! Yes you heard me right, I am
giving them away! There is absolutely no purchase necessary and all you have to
do is connect with me on social media! How simple is that, right?!
As we approach the infamous day after Thanksgiving, better known as Black Friday, I thought I'd be nice to share some of my shopping tips with you!
1. Shop the week before
because there are tons of great deals that won't be available on Black
Friday! I know Black Friday is looked at as this big huge deals day, but
truth be told it's really the week before that is a great time to shop.
I know this personally from years of watching the sales ads, so don't
wait grab your gifts early this year.
I have to do something! I'm at my wits end! I can't take it anymore! God,
please help me!
These cries have become daily for me and that's not good. I believe
that God will never put more on us than we can handle. I also believe God puts
us in situations to become better, so I have challenged myself to 62 days of refreshing my life. This
challenge will help me to live a more balanced life and bring me into the New Year with a smile and fresh perspective.
On any given school day there is an unique hustle and bustle trying to get everyone out of the house on time, especially in my case. I had my 3rd c-section early this year and it left me feeling a bit helpless and weak in my body. Long story short our drive to school has become stressful, but
How often have you heard these questions and comments?

- What do you do all day?
- I wish I had it easy like you!
- Don't you get bored?

- You just play with the kids all day?!
- Why are you tired?
As back to school fast approaches, I am embracing God's perfect timing! Earlier this year I applied for my 2 youngest daughters to attend preschool, so that I could have more uninterrupted time to grow and expand my company. I'd be perfect, I thought -- kid free for 6 hours a day-- Woohoo, just imagine time to myself, time to workout (much needed), time to network, time to get my nails done-- lots of time to do things I like to do -- Well...

Laboratory. Thanks so much for stopping by, I’m
absolutely ecstatic to have you join me as I blog out my passions and thoughts. Feel free to read more about who I am and what I do here. You may be wondering, how this blog came to be …
This blog is a BIG leap of faith for me and its name came to me in a time of
great sorrow. Everyone I thought I could rely on left my side and at the time I
was going through many trials; then one day I was sitting on my bed crying out
to God and the chorus from this song I use to like a long time ago, by New
Edition, came back to my remembrance ...
“Sunny days everybody loves them but tell me can you stand
the rain? Storms
will come this we know for sure can but
you stand the rain?"- Can You
Stand the Rain (1988)
The first day of preschool is one of the most exciting yet emotional day’s parents and children experience together. As a mom of three, I can definitely understand the emotional roller-coaster most may feel as the big day approaches, so I've put together a few tips that helped me prepare my first daughter for preschool.
1. Take your child for a couple trial visits at their new school
Trial visits will allow your chils to experience the flow of the day. If the school allows it, ask if they can take a nap and have lunch there one day as well, so they get a better feel for their new routine and surroundings.
