Happy New Year!

It's New Years Eve and I just wanted to give my version of the 08 wrap up. LOL.. nah, but I seriously just want to tell everyone Happy New Year and be safe out there tonight. I look forward to another fun filled year with all the friends I have now, and the cats I'll meet in 09!

To my fam: I would be nothing without you. Thank you for supporting me with everything I do and loving me unconditionally.

To my baby, Rook, you are my world. However, this is our last year as boyfriend and girlfriend that's for year it's fiance. LMAO! I'm in Hawaii bitches. Just had to throw that in.

Summertime....looking forward to more bitch fests and finding a new glam!

Dearly Departed, I swear to the man above you best hurry up because I'm tired of working damnit.

The Fresh Fiends, keep doing your thing, ladies. You make me proud.

Fantastic Fam - although we're all doing our own things at the moment and we don't hang out like we should, you all are forever my people and it is now and will always be Fantastic Family.

And to everyone else out there, just because I didn't individually name you doesn't mean you don't have a place in my heart or that you're any less to me! I would be nothing without the love of my friends.

Here's to 2008 and Cheers to 2009!

Peace and Love!

Nike ID Commercial

I stole this from my boys over at Rhyme and Reason it was too funny not to post

Nike Zoom Kobe IV iD - Mike Epps + DJ AM from on Vimeo.

Yo Gabba Gabba x The Roots

I absolutely love The Roots, I think they're one of the greatest hip-hop bands to ever grace my eardrums. They recently made an appearance on Nick Jr's. tv show, Yo Gabba Gabba. If you've never seen this show, it's a must. It's supposed to be a kid show, but there isn't an adult I know who doesn't like it. It's about a DJ and all his friends. Anywho, I must not be the only one who loves it, because The Roots stopped by and did a new song on the show. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the actual video of their performance, but it you here, you can see it on Nick Jr. website of course after a few quick words from their sponsors. LOL.

More Presents...

The bf and I had our Christmas last night...and he was way to generous and good to me. I think he went overboard, but I have to admit, I love everything I got. Again I forgot my camera to upload all my pics, but here are a few from my phone camera.

Christmas Presents...

Here are a few picks from Christmas... I'll put up more later, but this is what I took with my phone so until I upload all the pics from my camera, this is just a sneak peak.

This is my neice...poor baby was so sick and on her first Christmas nonetheless. She doesn't like the flash of the Oops.

I got my Yoga toes.. woohoo! These things are the best!

A picture of all the presents under my tree minus the ones from Santa of course.

Here's the new bedding that the bf's mom bought us. Loves it.

Another One

I'm telling you, the sales out there in the stores are sooo worth it. Sephora is also having a huge sale; shop up to 50% off on all your beauty product needs.

Semi Annual Sale

Now that Christmas is over, it's time to get out that cash that you got from Santa, and buy something for yourself. Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale is going on now. This is the time to shop at Victoria's...everything is so much cheaper!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I will be out of commission for a few days attending church, and spending time with the family. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday and may Santa bring you everything your heart desires.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. And one of my favorite songs for Christmas.

Those aren't Sprinkles

I'm a little disturbed and grossed out by this! These dishes make it look as if you're food is being invaded by ants. Can you say, I lost my appetite! $47

Official Sooner or Later Video - N.E.R.D

A couple of days ago I posted a behind the scenes look at the new video for N.E.R.D's Sooner or Later video...well the final project is complete. Check it.

Zoo Lights

The bf and I wanted to get into the holiday spirit so we headed to zoo lights on Saturday night. Word of advice, don't go on a Saturday night, ish is mad busy. Or if you do, go around 8:30'ish...that way most of the parents are taking the kids home by then so the park is a little less crowded. I absolutely loved it and it was a very romantic date night with my love.

My babes and I...and our kettle korn. Mmmm!

This is a pic of the walkway. Dope.

We spotted bigfoot in the bushes! Eeek

Me, freezing my arse off!

Odd Couple

They're the oddest couple to me and yet they seem to fit perfectly. I like them together. Rumors of their engagement are untrue. I really just wanted to post a pic of them. LOL.

It's Britney & Ellen, Bitch

Ms. Britney Spears and Ellen went caroling around town in LA. Ish is hilarious. Take a look

La Bocca

Since we're on the subject of restaurants, one of my all time favs has to be La Bocca which is an urban pizzeria and wine bar and is located in the heart of Mill ave on 7th Ave & Mill. If you haven't been, it's a must. They're menu is simple offering pizza, sandwiches, appetizers and of course wine.

House of Tricks

No this isn't a magic shop, it's another restaurant to go to for a romantic dinner or perhaps a Sunday brunch with friends. Eric and Sum, shall we go??? House of tricks is nestled in the center of Downtown Tempe, just a block and a half away from Mill Ave. Not only do they offer dinner and lunch, but they also do wine tasting there.

Elements Restaurant

I love trying new places to eat especially romantic places with the bf. I found this restaurant, Elements, located at the ultra-exclusive Sanctuary Resort, which promises a top-notch romantic experience. I looked at the menu and it's a little pricey, but not as extreme as I thought. This might just have to be an anniversary or special occasion dinner. They offer farm-fresh American cuisine with authentic Asian accents.

I scream, you scream...

...we all scream for frozen yogurt. A new frozen yogurt shop has opened up in Tempe. Last month, Tempe welcomed Yogurtini, the area's one-of-a-kind, self-serve frozen yogurt joint. They offer 10 featured frozen yogurt flavors and over 50 toppings.

Free Shake

With the economy in such turmoil, it's great when you can get things for free. Arby's is offering a free sample of their new limited time, Mint Swirl Shake. Just sign up at

Ma Dame

I love love love Jean Paul Gautier for men, and now, Mr. Gautier has a new fragrance out called Madame. MaDame is described as a fresh floral scent. the notes also include sour orange. Hopefully it smells as good as the men's fragrance

Iraqi Reporter throws shoes at Bush

In what is a great insult in the Iraqi culture, one pissed off reporter throws his shoes at Bush!

HighPoint Charity Party

After the BF's holiday party on Friday night, we ran over to HighPoint which was having a charity party. I didn't have my camera handy, so I stole these pics from Baby P and my ladies over at Fresh Fiends
I felt extremely ugly that night, so no pics of me!

Really Pees & Poops...

The bf and I were in Wal-Mart this past weekend and I came across this doll for little girls! It says the doll really pees and poops! Seriously!? WTF? Now I remember my dolls growing up that pee'd and what not, but my dolls never shit. Eww! I am totally disturbed by this. Anyone else feel the same?

Holiday Party

The bf's Holiday party was this past Friday night at Dave & Busters. We ate, we drank, we played games, and we won 1700 tickets (well the bf did, but what's his is mine right? LOL). The pics are a Little crappy, but you get the jist.

Thanks to the BF's co-worker, he put us onto this game that just spits tickets out.

This is Thomas' tickets that he won while playing the game

This is Thomas taking his winnings and running.

And this is some of the tix the bf won.
