I’m super excited, because today is the the kick-off to my birthday festivities!!! I really don’t need anything for my birthday, but I do have a few things that I wouldn’t mind having! My Sister asked me yesterday what I wanted. I’m not going to tell you what I told her. LOL Hey…can’t blame a girl for trying! I have an idea of one of the gifts I will be getting. I can’t wait to go pick it out!

Everyone knows I’m a HUGE Sanrio fan, especially HELLO KITTY!!! Spottie Dottie, Little Twin Stars, Keroppi, My Melody…you name it! I’ve been a fanatic since 3rd grade. Remember those little boxes from back in the 1980’s, early 90’s? Yeah…I had one of those! Every little girl in the classroom had them on their desk (like the one below). They held pencils, erasers, paper clips, everything! I had a white/clear Hello Kitty box with four, color-blocked squares with her in them. Totally Vintage now!

I’ve had my eye on this one particular handbag. It’s available in quite a few colors so now it’s deciding which color I want! One of my girlfriends, who is also an April Baby, sent me a picture of one that she wants she found in Atlanta — in yellow! You can see it here. The black is really cute too and it actually matches my Hello Kitty wallet my sweet nephew, Winston, bought me for Christmas. Here is a handbag in one of the fun colors!



 Maybe my wish will come true!!!

I went to my Mom’s house this past weekend to pick up a few items and I decided to go into the downstairs closet to take a look. It’s always overflowing with tons of clothes. Most of the clothes are from when my Sis and I were growing up and a lot of throwback stuff that we […]

I will never forget growing up and listening to all kinds of good music Saturday mornings as my Mom did her house cleaning. Vesta Williams, one of the greatest, was one of those artists in heavy rotation in the stack of vinyl records. A true Diva by definition with a voice so powerful, who started illuminating the […]
