Janet Jackson Concert Rocked

So the other day I was minding my own business when my mom called to let me know a friend of hers had a pair of tickets that she wanted to give away for the Janet Jackson concert and asked if I would like to have them. My thoughts were, “is this a trick question”? lol. Of course I would be crazy to turn down the opportunity to see a legend such as Janet Jackson. It didn’t even matter that the tickets weren’t the best seats and I didn’t have time to get an exclusive outfit together for the concert. The spontaneity of the entire ordeal made it even better. I called up my my best girl pal and we were set! Plus did I mention it was FREE!!!!!!!

Enough of the rambling now on to the good stuff. Tuesday, September 29, 2015 Miss Jackson came to the FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN and did not disappoint at all. Her voice was amazing, her dance moves were rocking, she looked stunning, and she put on an overall excellent show!! This small, unexpected blessing was an opportunity of a lifetime for me!! I’m an 80s baby so I’m all about the 80s and 90s R&B/Pop. If you have the opportunity to check out Janet Jackson on her Unbreakable Tour, you will be in for a treat. Check out some of the pictures from my night:

Another Awesome Birthday!!

My birthday was Monday, August 24th and I must admit, I always have awesome birthdays. I save my money throughout the year so I can do fun things to celebrate me once a year. This year wasn’t any different. Although I didn’t start making plans weeks and months in advance and reaching out to a lot of people like usual, my spare of the moment plans turned out well. I enjoyed everything.

I had the opportunity to go to Los Angeles, California last week and it was everything I could imagine. Although it was kind of business related I considered it the kick off to my birthday celebration and made the most of my personal time as well. I did a little shopping, a bunch of eating, and some sightseeing. The sucky part about it was I was only there for a couple of days and I didn’t get to explore everything I wanted but I absolutely enjoyed the beautiful weather, palm trees, and the beach. I most definitely see myself making a trip back in the very near future.

When I got off of my overnight flight back home Saturday morning I got a couple of hours of shut eye and was ready to go. My first stop was to go enjoy juicy, succulent crab legs at the casino. My beau knows that crab legs are one thing that make me very happy so he made sure to include them in the days agenda. After crab legs I went to hang out with my family members. Of course that night including side aching laughs.

Sunday afternoon was my annual birthday brunch. I know I forgot to mention this one fact but here goes. My mom and I share the same birthday. Yes her water decided to break on her birthday when she was headed out to celebrate herself. I was ready to come out to celebrate too!! 🙂 So basically my mom and I have a birthday brunch at this amazing restaurant in downtown Memphis, TN named The Majestic Grille every year. Just like every year it was an amazing turn out of family and friends. I waited until the last minute to tell my crowd but many were still able to show up and the ones who couldn’t sent their love and wishes! 🙂 Later that day my grandma fixed me an awesome Sunday dinner which included a made from scratch strawberry cake!! 🙂

The finale, my actual birthday fell on a Monday so I took the day off. It began as a lazy day of laying in bed. I received breakfast in bed so that was a plus!! I got up and did a little shopping until it was time to go get my daughter from school. We then prepared to go to my mom’s and I annual birthday dinner at Benihana (Honestly can’t beat the $30 birthday voucher they give you when you sign up for their birthday club). It was more of an intimate crowd (a party of 5) this year but as always it was awesome!! I enjoyed the food and the show the hibachi chef put on. Most of all I loved my company.

This birthday was very laid back and it kind of reflects my growth. I am usually in party mode but really wasn’t up for that much this year. Not saying I’ve completely retired the party scene just wasn’t feeling it. I appreciate the birthday wishes and love my family and friends showed me! Check out my pics from my birthday festivities!!:)
