So typically on Monday’s I give a run down of what I did over the weekend. Clearly, Monday has now passed and I still have not been able to capture what I did over the weekend. So here we go: A Thankful Tuesday Edition of Monday’s Musings.
We served Red Velvet Cupcakes from Red Velvet Cupcakery and the Cocktails were sponsored by Moet & Chandon. Kudos to them for sending cases of Rose!
Here are some pics you may have seen on my Instagram from the event…
Little Sister is in the middle.
Sunday rolls around and duty as a Soror calls… I had to be at a Crossing Ceremony and so I squeezed church in on the way there. DO NOT DO THIS! but hey an iPad comes in handy – I Live Streamed Church as I drove to Baltimore, MD and didn’t miss a thing!
I picked up my sister and we put on our “uniform” – uninterrupted black. I am wearing my first strand of pearls as a woman of Delta Sigma Theta, given to me by my hubby and also a strand of pearls that belonged to my Great-Grandmother – a founder of our sorority.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to honor people who I am thankful for in more ways then one. So the first will be, my grandfather The Late Samuel Edward Smith. I am bias to the women in my family because we are very aggressive by nature and quite independent that our men do not get love sometimes. My grandparents were divorced and remarried to other people but still before my grandfather passed in 1995, I had fond memories of him that stick with me to this day. I can thank him for my love for being near or on the water. He owned a boat and would take us out on the Bay to go crabbing. One thing I hope I can share with my future children. I am also thankful for him because when I took a look at his picture recently it didn’t make me feel so bad for being so “cheek heavy”. As much as people say I look like my mom…. I swear I look mostly like my grandfather and his mother. What you think?
And lastly, I am so thankful for the finale performance of the AMA’s.. its one of the few that I caught because I watching my Ravens beat the Steelers… but I LOVED IT! It took me back to Elementary/Middle School when MC Hammer was on everything! Including a cartoon… and he danced SO hard!
Happy Early Thanksgiving Everyone…
