Birthday Bloopers – Gifts, Parties, Rites of Passage

This post is for Kim’s September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge!

Yesterday’s prompt – Commemoration: Where were you on September 11, 2001?

Remember Dori, my travel partner to the Delta Centennial Convention in D.C. this summer?

September 11, 2001 Commemoration

 

Well, I just happened to be traveling the campus of FVSU with my love at the time.  We lived in the same dorm next door to each other, we were line sisters, and we were pretty close way back then too.

We walked into the dorm and heard all of this madness.  She was very upset because she had a family member that lived there.

It was truly a sad day and I remember it well. My heart goes out today to all those affected by that day as we all cherish their memories on today.

Have You Ever Thought About Killing Yourself

It is true that white men have the highest risk of attempting suicide.  Women and teens have had reported attempts as well.

No one is excluded from the possibility!

A young white man that I used to baby sit when I was a teenager, committed suicide at the age of 21 right when I came out of pharmacy school.

I had a cultural eye opener a few summers ago when 2 suicides of young black men occurred within 1 week & I experienced the community fall out surrounding those 2 incidents.

Just this summer, I had an older white female patient commit suicide.

That is a diverse pool of people!

For My Health Monday, I am bringing awareness on Rx Fitness Lady for the observance of “World Suicide Prevention Day” tomorrow, September 10th.  You can click the link to get a wealth of information or here for the prevention lifeline.

My Group Fitness Instructor is Better Than Yours

Have you noticed these tag lines on social networks? My hairdresser, my makeup artist, my brother, my sister, etc.  Well, I jumped right on the bandwagon!

Oh, is this your group fitness instructor 😉 ???

My Group Fitness Instructor Is Better Than Yours

But first….

This portion of the post is for Kim’s September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge!

Today’s prompt – Yield: Share 1 or 2 of your favorite recipes, DIY projects, or beauty fashion tips.

I bet Kita thought I forgot to shout out my guest post on her online magazine blog Kokoa magazine.  Last week, I had a very short, to the point post “Make Life Easier for Mothers with A DIY Baby Pharmacy”.  You may have remembered the long version here months ago.  Please go check it out.

So, Kim, I killed two birds with one stone!  Besides, I don’t do much DIY and my cooking taste fine but it’s nothing special to post recipes for 😉 Continue reading

A Different Kind of Boot Camp: Budget IS NOT a Four Letter Word

Happy Hump Day PFL! I’m here again with Kim’s September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge!

Today’s prompt – Impingement: Which book and/or movie has affected you like no other? How? Why?

There are several books and movies that have influenced me. Since I mentioned to you in 20 Influential Women in a tweet that Lynnette Khalfani-Cox was one of the virtual mentors I followed, I chose one of her books that I read after graduating from school.

The Money Coach’s Guide to YOUR FIRST MILLION – Lynnette Khalfani

Apparently, everyday in the United Stated 25K people become millionaires! Most of them use budgets to get there!
