I never quite understood those people who do something wrong and feel like they don't deserve the consequences of their actions. Instead of owning up to what they did wrong they make it seem like the devil is against them or someone is trying to hurt them without reason. They steal cookies from the store but blame the devil for tempting them with the cookies. How does that make sense? Or those that have been lying about something and get mad when someone calls them out on the
Sitting here at the laundry mat in key west....people watching as always...... Some are staying to watch over their laundry to ensure that no one steals their clothes. Others are dropping their clothes off and leaving, maybe because they have other chores to get done. There is an Hispanic guy in the corner folding cook uniforms. Me being me I inquired about the restaurant he worked for and he informed me that he didn't work at a restaurant. He was simply supporting his sister
Welcome to MIAMI! I love Miami! Palm trees, beautiful oceans, sandy beaches, gorgeous people, great food, gorgeous people(did I say that twice?) lol. Although, there are certain parts of Miami that you shouldn't visit at night, the daytime views are pretty spectacular. We arrived in Miami and checked into the Embassy Suites near the airport. We usually stay at the Embassy Suites by Hilton no matter what city we are in because they cater to people with families and those who a
How can an island this small be so mind blowing and beautiful? God's hand and creativity is so evident in this place. Every inch is filled with a sprinkle of beauty here and a sprinkle of God's happy juice there. The locals are simply the best. Every where we go we are offered a smile and suggestions on where we should eat and play. We met a vibrant and vivacious couple at a local restaurant who talked to my mom and I for about an hour. The wife owns a consignment shoppe on D

Hey guys I've received a lot of texts and emails asking about our Florida trip!! I promise as soon as I get settled I'm going to update the posts.... Stay tuned my loves....

As a lot of you know....I'm uber excited.....It's SPRING break BABY!!!!!! Yeeeaaaaahhhh Boy!!! I'm extremely excited to hit the road and get away for a few days. The kids are all packed up. Matter of fact they have been packed for two weeks. That's how serious we take our vacations. We prepare. 😎. Hair done ✔️ Oil Change ✔️ Report cards(kids with good grades are the only ones allowed) ✔️✔️ Music✔️ Food Destinations✔️ Mom & Sister ✔️ ( wish we had a half check because mom is
Peas. Sweet Peas. Frozen Sweet Peas. Who likes them? I don't. They are odd little balls of squishy yuckiness. I have been the one to always skip on the Peas no matter how they are disguised. Chinese food is a tedious hide and seek challenge when trying to pick them out of my shrimp fried rice. As I was looking around the freezer trying to figure what I wanted to make for you guys....I noticed a pack of frozen sweet Peas. I challenged myself to make some things with sweet peas
Recently, as a family we started meeting up for dinner to celebrate each other's birthdays. I know that's a normal thing to do in most families but our family is little different. LOL. We all travel a lot and none of us like to sit still. It's a Barrett thing I think. As a whole, I think when my grandmother passed away, we really didn't know how to have a party without her. Quite honestly, we sometimes forget that birthdays are even coming up. We want our family members to fe
Friends, How many of us have them? Ones we can depend on.....talking bout FRIENDS.......LOL. When it's time to get out there and meet new people and be a social butterfly, I run like a scared chicken. I am not the best at meeting new people and having meaningful conversations with people I just meet. So, when people take interest in me and want to hang out....I always give them the disclaimer...."I am not a good friend....I don't always call back....I don't always text back..
