New Edition Concert




This past summer I saw #NewEdition in concert!  I love NE and we had a great time!  I posted another pic from the concert here.

I was a little disappointed that Bobby Brown wasn't there since the concert was promoted with #AllSix, but I later learned that he was sick that weekend. So hope you're feeling better Bobby; take care of yourself!

Side note: Bobby has his own barbecue sauce and seasoning. Check out his "Bobby-Que" products at this website: bobbybrownfoods.com.


My favorite members of New Edition were always Ronnie DeVoe (had a crush on him) and Bobby (I thought he was the best dancer).







NE has so many good songs, but here are my faves...

When they released "Hit Me Off" on their Home Again album, I was hooked!

Fun Fact: My brother +TFIGBassPlayer has an ear for music and he told me this song was sampled from an artist by the name of Bob James. +YouTube the song, "Storm King" when you get a chance to listen to it.




Oh my goodness!! "You Don't Have To Worry" is one of the best remixes ever! Great job Missy (awesome rap at the beginning) and P. Diddy!  And Bobby is perfect for the lead vocalist on this song!




 
I also LOVED when NE was on Family Matters! That's one of the best episodes in my opinion.  I remember recording it on VHS when it first aired on #TGIF on +ABC Television Network :-D

Here it is.  So glad someone uploaded it!




And just for fun, here's my favorite song by BBD (Bell Biv DeVoe):

Commercial Success: Disney / P&G


I consider myself to be a "Disney Kid," because my awesome parents took my bro and I to +Disney World many times.  I also mentioned in a previous blog post that my Hubby and I even went to #DisneyWorld for our honeymoon.  Anyways, I saw this Disney/Star Wars commercial yesterday and I absolutely love it!!!  

Watch below and visit disneyparks.disney.go.com to plan your next Disney vacay :)

Halloween Costumes & Memories


I'm not really into #Halloween so you won't see too many posts about it from me.  Maybe one day when I have children (Lord willing).  

I do like seeing the cute costumes kids are wearing these days, like these two I saw on Pinterest. . .








#HarryPotter


How cute!


And check out these adorable kiddos on #TheReal:




My favorite memory of Halloween was of course trick-or-treating, but I also liked handing out candy afterwards to other kids when we got back home.  Both were fun for me.

Oh, and I remember I had some #MinnieMouse ears from +Disney World, so my Mom made me a red and white polka-dot dress to go with it.  She's the best!  The funny thing is, I remember a woman asking was I Cinderella???

One time we went to the Mall too and we went trick-or-treating in all the stores.  Ah, the good ole days!  I now see how important it is to give children good memories. Kids remember those times even when they grow up, so make sure you are creating happy memories for them.  

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween this year! Hopefully the weather is nice. 

Leave me a comment and tell me what you and/or your children are dressing up as.

Jam of the Week: Fill Me In


Remember Craig David?  Click here for his Twitter page and see what he's been up to.





I didn't like this song when it first came out, but the radio stations had it in heavy rotation and it grew on me. 

Here is "Fill Me In" by #CraigDavid:




I also like his song, "Seven Days."  Both songs are good and easy on the ears.  Nice videos too!

Tom Joyner Morning Show


Oh-Oh-Oh, how I love the Tom Joyner Morning Show!





I just love listening to Tom, Sybil, and +J. Anthony Brown on the #TJMS.  I listen to this radio program pretty much everyday, especially now that I have their app and can hear it anytime.  

Here I am singing my version of the jingle. . .

Commercial Success: Pier 1 Imports


This +Pier 1 Imports commercial makes me excited for the holidays.



#FindWhatSpeaksToYou

Christians Are Like Pumpkins


A lady recently being baptized was asked by a co-worker what it was like to be a Christian. She replied,

"It's like being a pumpkin: God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off you may have gotten from the other pumpkins.

Then he cuts the top off and scoops out all the yucky stuff.

He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.

Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."

(I'm not sure who is the author of this).



Jam of the Week: Timepiece


I'm feelin' #Lecrae and I've been listening to his music for a long time.  Happy for him! #success





The song, Timepiece is fire and it sounds so good in my car :)




Amazing lyricist!
