Happy Monday Bous! I hope you had a great weekend! The weather was absolutely gorgeous!

Homecoming

Homecoming was April 17th. That’s right. A Spring Homecoming. You wanna know why? Cuz it’s Beyonce and she does what she wants. Queen Bey released her performance at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Netflix. She is a genius. She got us excited all over again about the same songs we have seen and heard in concert at  On the Run…twice! Just in time for the summer workout playlists! I know I watched the entire thing on Sunday morning and I ain’t Sorry! It’s rumored that her Netflix deal was $60 million! The best revenge is your paper!

One thing that stood out for me as a mom was how real she was. Bey says, “My mind was not there. My mind wanted to be with my children. What people don’t see is the sacrifice.” That’s so real. Bey also acknowledges that Motherhood changes you. “I’m in a new chapter in my life, and I’m not even trying to be who I was. It’s so beautiful that children do that to you.”

Whew Bey! You got me thinking bout joining the Beyhive girl!

 

Pretty in the City

In case you were living under a rock, last week New Orleans hosted the 87th South Central Regional Conference for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. My Sorors showed out! Pink and Green all over the city! I heard it was a great conference! That’s right, I heard! I was co chair of children’s activities so I had the pleasure of hanging out at Dave and Busters and The Aquarium with the AKA kids! I missed out on the Que Party, the Kappa Party and AKApollo! I didn’t completely miss out, I was able to attend the Gala on Saturday night. We were entertained by the Baby Doll Ladies and Doug E. Fresh. I was excited about our special IVY box!

Easter

My family and I continued our Easter tradition at Arnauds! The guys didn’t disappoint! I love to see everyone out in their Easter best. Seersucker, Linen and Patchwork is always trending for the guys! The ladies bloomed in their floral dresses! Mojo shocked me with his unfulfilled request for Optimus Prime from the Bunny! Who knew that the Easter Bunny took requests!
