F2BD #2 My Birthday

Welcome to the second installment of Fit 2 B Dressed: because we don’t work out just for our health, but to look good 😉 !

First, I want to send a huge THANKS to the lovely Carli and Veronica for holding down the fort last week while I enjoyed some family time!

Last week I posted my Old School Blogging: Alphabet Soup answers and quite a few of you wished me an early Happy Birthday! Thank you for that!  Today is my actual birthday, YAY! We are going to keep it light on the blog today.  I do however, want you to come back to my party Wednesday 🙂 !

Last time, you all really seemed to like the White Party for my sister’s birthday.  I am not as lively as her, but I did have a small dinner outing. Enjoy!

F2BD #2 My Birthday

32 years old!

In the first picture before leaving the house, I was all smiles!  At the end of the night, I wanted to trash these bad boys…OUCH..flats please 🙂 !

My Birthday Outing

The chick in the middle with the bun on top of her head wanted it very clear if I posted this picture that she is the only one who is not 32 yet.  FYI – Her birthday is next month…so anyway…

Ha, love her! She is the VERY FIRST person I met when I walked on the campus of The Fort Valley State University.  We are still going strong!

I had a nice time with the ladies! I feel blessed to be here for 32 years.  Thank you for supporting me in this space & don’t forget to come back Wednesday.  It will be fun & as promised, A GIVEAWAY 🙂 !

    • Girl all that maneuvering in the streets of NY, I know you have to at least keep some flats in your purse. Thank you…26 🙂

  1. I always eat out on my birthday! I celebrate twice, one evening of ratchetness with my friends and then with my family usually the next day…and yes…always heels! I am very good friends with the first person I met at college. She was my room mate all four years and we talk every other day now. I went to college with my BFFs but was lucky enough to branch out and meet new people as well.

    • I’m glad you were able to branch out. That can be tough with established crews already on deck. I am celebrating with my family this evening as well. We are two peas in a pod, ratchetness all day 🙂

  2. Haaappy Birthdaaaay!!!!! looking hawt as usual. Are those size 10 shoes, cause you cal always trash ’em over here. there’re cute 😉 Seems like you had a wonderful time. It’s such a blessing to be surrounded by good friends. I would love to witness the impact your next 32 years have on the world. Continued blessing!

  3. Happy Birthday, Joi! I LOVE your signature pose. I can’t ever pull it off that well. I’m 32 as well and I still tell people. It still sounds so flirty and thirty to me. Of course I have two kids so 32 feels..kinda weird.
    Homecooked is my favorite for my birthday! My husband is a great cook.
    Heels, but not high ones rather than flats.
    And the first person I met in college was a musician who lived down the hall from me. She was dragging a giant cello into the dorm and I think (hope) I stopped to help her.
    Tamara recently posted…This is Big Time, Baby.My Profile

    • Thanks for acknowledging my pose 🙂 I always am wondering what else I can do to be hip like all the pictures I see floating around the inter webs but then I just resolve to my regular. I like the way it looks, lol. I keep flat handy for the most part too.

  4. POW! She is hot! (said in the style of Tamar Braxton) You are rockin’ that dress, girl!
    You ladies look like y’all had a blast. My bff is just like your homegirl in the middle. Bff is ONE day younger than I am and you better believe she will claim all 24 hours of being younger.
    And Happy birthday. I finally said it on the right day. You know my short term memory is shot because of my use of Asparatime!haha

    • It’s all good V, I appreciate it as many times as you dish it out 🙂 Thanks and our friends be tripping!!!

  5. Happy Birthday! LOVE the outfit–you look fab and gorgeous!
    I do tell me age when asked but oftentimes people think I am younger and don’t believe I have two boys (10 + 8). Thank goodness for good genetics, a sunny disposition and fitness! I love to eat on my bornday and sushi is one of my faves. Always heels! I live in heels! I can’t remember the first person in college–time to dust off those memory cobwebs!
    Enjoy your special day!
    The Get Fit Diva recently posted…Staying Active + Keeping Cool: AMF Summer UnpluggedMy Profile

    • Thank you ma’am! You don’t look like you have a 10 and 8 year old. You look amazing! I want to be just like that when I have a few!

  6. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOI!!!!!!! You look wonderful(that dress is poppin’ girl)…so glad you enjoyed yourself!! Yes I do tell my age…why, because I think I look great for 45, lol! 😀 Dine out of course(I can eat in ANYTIME). Steak of course, I hate seafood(well, actually I’m allergic to seafood) 🙁 Heels of course…I’m short Joi.:-) Funny story, my daughter is 4’10 and her husband is 6’1…IKR! Anyway, she NEVER wears flats when she’s out with him, it’s 5-6 inch heels always. Lol! Yes, my best friend Sebrinia, who I met over 25 years ago. Even though she lives in Atlanta and we don’t get to see each other often, we’re still the best of buddies! Now aren’t you proud of me Joi…I answered ALL of your questions! Lol 😀 Please excuse my “of course” introduction to each answer, haha, oh well! Again, enjoy your special day hon!!! Whoopwhoop!
    Michell recently posted…Michell’s Weekly Pearl…My Profile

    • You do look amazing Michell! I am still tripping off of how I just made you like 5 “8 or 9” in my head. I was looking at your IG photo like “what’s wrong…why does she look so short??” Too funny! I probably will have to meet in person before I can erase 5 months of imagining a tall person, lol.

      I agree, you can eat home cooked food anytime! Thanks my friend!

  7. Happy birthday to my darling firstborn, Joi. You are just as beautiful and precious as you were when I first laid eyes on my precious gift from God. You and your friends are extra ordinary beautiful on the inside and outside at 32. Friends are like jewels. Please treasure them forever. I love you all! I do tell my age. I am 35 again and you are all catching up with me very soon. LOL

    • You were one mature 3 year old when you had me boo 🙂 I Love you too! Thank you for always being supportive and making sure you look out for my best interest at ALL times 🙂

  8. A very very big happy birthday to you. I hope you enjoyed your weekend I love strips.
    I don’t say my age I use to get teased about it in school because my birthday was late I was teased for being to old or being to young all the time so I stopped telling people my age even to this day I don’t tell anyone I am tired of the comments about being to young for this or oh you look so much older than what you are. Heels what is that.
    Kita recently posted…A day in the life of KitaMy Profile

    • THanks Kita! I am sure those lefty comments get a return 4 letter word from you, lol! I already knew no heels were on deck for you! I love the pins on Wed though 🙂

  9. Girl, I realized I bypassed all your questions.lol. I do tell my age…I don’t mind at all. Although I get all kinds of reaction from.. you look great to that’s it?
    I definitely prefer dining out. Home cooked meal is the norm. I enjoy the special occasion outings. I’m not a steak eater…Maybe I haven’t had good ones. The last steak I ate was at a fancy Miami restaurant, paid $80 for my meal and didn’t like it.
    I’m a fake sushi eater. I only eat the California roles with the imitation crab meat. I love heals, but I always have a pair of flats handy. I remember the first person I met in college. We were really good friends throughout undergrad but lost touch.
    Hope recently posted…Working while not well..My Profile

    • I am wondering about this size 10 thing! How did you know! I should mail them to you just for guessing! You are such an inspiring commenter Hope! Thanks.

      Too bad about that $80 steak! I can take you to the jump off and have a good one for $10 around these parks 🙂

      • Lol, I’m just seeing this reply. Girl, I willed those shoes to be size 10. It was a pure guess though.
        Maybe I’ll actually like a $10 steak. I’m not against trying it again.

        Great job keeping your blog fresh and interesting.
        Hope recently posted…Running in the wrong shoes…My Profile

  10. Happy Birthday Joi, you are so beautiful. You were rocking that dress girl! I tell my age, I’ll be 51 next week. I’ve lived every year to the best of my ability. I like to go out to eat and dance for my birthday, concert, club or whatever. I’m a 5 minute in heels, get my flats out of my purse kinda girl. The first person I met in college was my roommate for 5 minutes, she switched with another girl so she could be with her sister.
    Whitney recently posted…Quiet ReflectionsMy Profile

    • I heard that! Take that photo then get rid of those bad boys! That’s what I should have done. Thanks Whitney, you are so sweet.

    • Thanks Natalie! It was like breathe again when I got to the car. I won’t be doing that again anytime soon!

  11. Happy Birthday Big Sis!
    Yes! I tell the world I am 28. Probably because people always say- REALLY? I would have thought 22 or 23. It makes me feel good. I like home cooked and out to eat for my birthday. You know- I expect a big celebration over my turning a year older. I am going for heels as often as possible. It makes me feel like a lady. The first person I met at college were the mean girls on the cheerleading squad… LOL but they turned out to be great team mates and sorority sisters.

    • Lol, I forgot about the cheerleaders. That roommate of yours tho, lol! You are right about the heels making you look like a lady…that’s the only reason I strap those bad boys on!

  12. Yes, I do tell my age, although as the years pile on that strategy might need some tweaking! LOL! I love a mix of heels and flats, depending on the outfit. My birthday is December 27, so it’s Christmas and Carnival time rolled into one. Lots of food at home, so I normally don’t go have to go out for my birthday.
    Alison recently posted…Alphabet Soup (aka “The A to Z of Me”)My Profile

  13. Happy birthday, my friend! I’m really liking the F2BD posts. I must get back to the ATL soon. I haven’t been since 2005 and there are so many new places to try out. That sushi looks so good.

    I have never had a problem with telling my age because most people are surprised by it. However, I don’t get carded as much as I used to. 🙁

    My favorite birthday dinner is steak or seafood. Definitely dine-out. I feel empowered in heels but if I can get away with flats, I’ll do it.
    Kimberly H. Smith recently posted…Wire”LESS” WeekendMy Profile

    • Well said, me too! I always wear heels out but if I can get out on a Saturday with some tribals or flats…I’m all for it! If you come this way, you better let me know boo!

      Thanks Kim!

  14. Happy birthday, Joi! You are so pretty!!! I’ve always been up front about my age. I figure, so what if I’m old…as long as I look good! My husband lied about his age while we were dating and wasn’t truthful about it until I happened to find out several months before we got married. That was a huge debacle. We almost ended our engagement. What an idiot!
    catherine gacad recently posted…Sponsored Post: Sporting Opportunities in Rhodes: What Is AvailableMy Profile

    • LOL, you are so candid Catherine! I love that about your blog and your commentary. Thanks my friend for the compliment and well wishes. You do look great by the way!

  15. All that hard work shows up right in that awesome booty!

    Luv the dress and shoes. They don’t look that bad to me but I’ve grown to ignore my feet hurting over the years. When you’re 4’10” you just go with it you know. Heels!

    The dinner actually looks pretty good. At least when you go to a sit down restaurant the ingredients are mostly fresh.

    I do tell people my age. Except the salesman who thought I was in my late 20’s or early 30’s last week. Why ruin is delusion?

    I’m not into celebrating my birthday so I just eat the same. Unless someone’s buying me shrimp then let the celebration begin! No sushi for me. I’ve only eaten it once at the Japanese Festival at botanical gardens in STL (you must come for that — totally awesome) and it made me sick.

    I don’t remember the first person I met in college but it’s awesome you do! And you’re still friends. I had a group of people I hung out with in Junior college and for a few years after that but we kind of parted ways.
    Carli recently posted…Breaking Down the Paleo DietMy Profile

    • I did not fathom that you were that short Carli! Your tweet tripped me out! THanks for answering all the questions. That festival sounds like must!

    • Thanks Honeybee. That color is new for me, I’m glad you noticed. You are such a sweet blog friend. I appreciate it!

  16. I LOVE your signature pose and all of your posing! You look gorgeous! Happy belated birthday. The early 30’s is such a magnificent time and you are living that time so well. Cheer to you!
    Ilene recently posted…The WallMy Profile

  17. Happy belated birthday Joi! That’s how 32 is supposed to look! Now that I’ve complimented you can I have a piece of sushi? That would be great! I usually tell my age only if asked. I’m kind of big on birthdays and love to celebrate. It’s the only day specifically made for me! Why not celebrate while I can? I go out to eat. Always. Normally to some swanky spot that will break hubby’s wallet. LOL. It’s really our wallet so whatever. Heels and more heels. Until I pull my flat scandals out of course. I will always remember the first few faces I encountered at Hampton. Always! Fun post
    Andrea recently posted…7 Reasons I Chose to Attend an HBCUMy Profile

    • Yeah, boo I just left a novel on your blog..that was a fun post for me 🙂

      I agree, yesterday felt so good getting all the messages and shout outs. We should all celebrate to the fullest and take time to wish others a happy birthday. HBD might not seem like much but it can brighten a person’s day! Thanks Andrea!

  18. Hope you had a great birthday Joi! I tell my age, but not to kids, especially not my students lol. And I love seafood, for my birthday, anniversary, Christmas…a good old fashioned low country boil is always appropriate! 😀

  20. Happy Birthday, my friend! I feel so privileged to have discovered your blog. You are truly a blog inspiration.

    I do tell my age, usually! When I do, many people assume that I’m younger. I don’t remember the first person that I met in college. I would love to wear heels , but they are too uncomfortable. Lately, I have been wearing low heels, but I keep a pair of flats nearby. Heels would really compliment me if I could stand them longer. I am short – about 5’0. I enjoy eating out for my birthday – anywhere there is a variety of foods. I’m still waiting on that big birthday celebration. I guess I’ll just have to make it happen!

    • Wow, you and Michell are right there together and for some reason I keep imagining my blog friends as tall, lol!

      I am so glad I met you as well Trinity, your blog delivers EVERY single time I visit!

  21. Happy belated birthday, you look amazing! I’m turning 32 this year as well. I have no problem telling my age, especially when I’m out with my baby and people ask what I do/if i’m in school/when I graduate etc… lol. I like being in my 30s its a fun age!

    had to laugh at your friend with the bun’s comment, will remember she is 31 for now!

    • Thanks darling! I didn’t know we were right there together. Those compliments always make my day a well. Good to hear from you.

  22. That’s such a pretty dress! You look fab. Hope you had a great birthday!!

    By the way, I’ve updated my blog with a new post. I’d love for you to swing by 🙂
