CafeWorld is not a game!

Not too long ago I started playing this game on Facebook. Its a Zynga game called CafeWorld. My cafe started off very small, a few stoves and tables. I am a gamer who loves to cook so this game was right up my alley.

Shopping for new chairs....

The more I played I earned more money which allowed me to expand my cafe and decorate.

I like to switch it up every now and then...

Recently there was an alien theme so I changed my clothes, this is a cute little spaceship outfit..

I just changed my cafe to give the illusion of a two in one Dave & Buster's kinda cafe. Sports/Grill on one side and 5 ***** star resturant on the other. I love it!

I just changed my look. What do you think? I'm rocking the gumby! LOL

The flat screen is hot! LOL

Zoomed in...
I play CafeWorld and I'm proud of it!! LMBO!!!!!!!!!

I love this era of fashion...


Say YES to CVS!!

Super random blog...I may be weird but I LOVE to hang out in drugstores like CVS & Walgreens. You can get vitamins, makeup, magazines, nail polish and household goods and alot of CLEARANCE items! ...I can spend all day in that store! Don't judge me. LOL

I have been reading about the benefits of far so good. Vitamins for my daughters and Super B Complex for hubby and I.

The benefits of CVS is the Buy 1 Get 1 FREE perks. 2 for 1 ..The Daily Energy is great for me and the hubster. It has more goodness in it then the Women's. The Women's is higher in Caffine so it gives me a JOLT!

I wanted to give these a try. I didn't care for the tissue because it was 1 Ply. I stuffed it under the cabinet, Me no likey.

The paper towels are pretty cool...they get the job done I guess. They can't hold a candle to VIVA paper towels (my fave) but I can dig the fact that these are eco friendly.

It hurts to loose somone you love like this....

Before the funeral my husband looking at the home that he grew up in. Summers, cookouts, Holidays, Family and Love. This is the house where I met his family for the first time over 14 years ago. All the family photos are now ashes.

Sad and mad at the same time. Heartbroken.

Usually I don't like to blog about sad stuff but this issue hits home. LITERALLY. My husband's dear grandmother died from her injuries that she suffered in a house fire.

It was a normal Monday morning in the Williams household. Grandpa went fishing/hunting, I can see Grandma sitting at the kitchen table reading a newspaper drinking her coffee. Then all of a sudden a burst of flames and smoke. The car in the driveway spontaneously combusted and by the time Grandma realized it was a fire she couldn't get out in time. Fire Marshall said the cause of the fire was the luxury car that was parked in the car port.

I'm furious, I'm hurt! I can't mention the name of the car yet...Pending legalities. If you want to know the name of the car send me an email . After research this particular car had these issues with other people. Why are they still on the road????!!!??!?!??!?!
I want to spread the word about this car that claimed the life of my husband's "little lady" Grandma, the great-grandmother of my children. She didn't deserve to die like this. Nobody does. We laid her to rest yesterday in Ft Smith Arkansas...It hurt like heck to know she was in that casket and I would never get to see her again. We were able to hug and squeeze her around the Holidays. I'll post those pics later.

Tell those you love that you love them. Research your cars, know what you are dealing with people.

Roll the dice!! Have fun

Reagan Gomez-Preston is a wife and mother? Where have I been??

Reagan Gomez-Preston with her daughter Scarlett.

"Zaria" from the Parenthood is a Mommy!

husband, DeWayne Turrentine with daughter Scarlett

Babygirl is a cutie...I think I heard that she was married but I didn't know she was a Mommy too. Their little family is adorable! I wish them the best!

Its the simple things in life...

Yesterday was hubby's birthday...My daughters and I spent weeks trying to plan this awesome day for daddy. We bought him clothes, gadgets and reservations at 6 name it we went all out. He appreciates gifts but never requests anything. I have a classmate that makes superb cakes..custom made cakes that melt in your mouth. I mentioned to hubby that his cake was gonna be the best ever this year...He said, "I want the homemade lemon cake you make me every year." *sigh* Why won't he let me spoil him!!!??? GRRRR! He is not big on sweets but he will flip when he sees me mixing up a batch of my homemade lemon icing...

My oldest daughter saw a few cake decorations at the grocery store and she insisted that she pay for them with her own money! LOL Miss Independent...making this cake for my main squeeze was good quality time with my daughters. The girls decorated it themselves...After spending all that money on gifts and expensive dinners it was the $4.00 cake that the 3 girls in his life made with love that touched him the most... when its all said and done, its the simple things in life that mean the most.

The best things in life ARE NOT THINGS.

Get wiggy with it!

For the flyest wigs, weaves, pontytails and more head on over to
