OK, I'm sure no one's out there but if you are HEEEYY!!
It's been too long since I've posted a blog I really feel shamed... :-( I haven't been missing completely from blog land I read all my favorites all the time.
I've been doing well though. Still working, my daughter is doing good she's ten now, James and I are still going strong so I'm happy. I felt the need to blog since a while ago I complained so hard about being 30. Well, I've crossed over (as my James' brother put it) with my good health, in my right mind, and blessed with wonderful family and friends.
So what's been going on with the Baby Bond Girl you ask???? Let's see:
As I said I turned 30 this past Friday on the 9th and had the best time of my life. James took me on a 7 day Car.ni.val Cruise to Cozumel, Mexico, Grand Cayman Island, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica. We celebrated the whole week long. I can't tell y'all how much fun I had. MRS. P, her sister and their men came too. It was non-stop fun, although James and I did have enough alone time ;-)
James and I are building our 1st home together!!! It should be complete by the first of the year. There is so much detail that goes into building and designing a house its got our heads spinning. We are having a lot fun and ours kids and family are happy for us. We just feel so blessed to be able to make such an accomplishment. Now for those who are wondering, no we aren't married not even "engaged", but we will be and Soli (my legal counsel) has set me straight on the ways to protect myself.
Over the time I've been blogging I've met some of the most amazing people. My Blogger Fam
are great people, three of my favorite are, my Bond Mama, Soli; Ali's Zay; and Urban Butterfly. All of them are very talented, kind hearted and just wonderful people. Soli and Zay are now PUBLISHED authors. I have both of their books, and let me tell you that you should buy these books, one for yourself and another for family and friends. Visit their blogs to get more info, you wont be disappointed! UB, is one of the most talented poets that I've known. It's should only be a matter of time before I buy her book too:) Their links are to the right. Bye-bye for now.
OK, I'm posting a few pics of my trip enjoy....
Me on deck reading my "Bond Girl Manual"
James & I in Mexico
Mrs. P & Hubby, Me & James, Sister & BF
1. I think everyone who knows me knows that I can’t dance but loves to try:-)). I am the blackest person you’ll ever meet that can’t keep a beat. I don’t know what happen either; I could dance until I was a freshman in high school. I think I jinx myself when I was about 9 or 10, because I used to laugh at how my older sister danced and now I dance just like her. heehee
2. I am a mother, daughter, sister, aunt, lover, and friend. I work hard at what I do too.
3. My favorite perfume is Cashmere Mist. It’s a soft feminine fragrance and the only one of 1000 that I have that my James has acknowledged.
4. I love Music from the 70’s and 80’s. Especially something I can groove too. (inside joke, see #1) My favorite artists are Prince, Luther Vandross, MJB, JILL SCOTT, Babyface, and Fred Hammond to name a few…
5. My favorite pastime is …is it sad that I don’t have one that I can mention? I guess now it would be reading blogs. I can’t seem to ever get enough of them.
6. I am most comfortable when I’m around close family and friends. I like company.
7. When I am stressed out or nervous I start rubbing in the back of my hair. I hate when I do it because people who are around me often have caught on to it and sometimes call me out on it.
8. I don't like back stabbing people! I recently became a victim of this and this I feeling hurts my soul. Especially since I’ve done nothing to the person who wronged me. ( OK Mica breath) sorry yall:-)
9. I am not a very good at lying. I learned that when I was a teenager, although my mom knew it all my life. I would start slurring with my words and talking like a 3 year old, Back when I was in high school & I didn’t know “Jesus” I would lie about skipping school and my mom would pop me in the head and say “STOP LYING” I didn’t understand how she would know when all she would ask me was “How was school?” lol
10. My indulgence would be potato chips. There’s this brand made here in my city called Per.les Salt and Vin.e.gar. I just LUV’em! I can’t have them tho cause I’m cutting back on my calorie in-take.

New Year, New Me
I hope everyone brought in the New Year happy, healthy, and safe. 2006 ended wonderful for me I spent it with my James; we had a nice time together. I wanted to post before 2007 started but there’s always 2008 ;-)
I look for 2007 to be the beginning of the most excellent years of my life. I'll be 30! Even though 2006 ended great for me it wasn’t the best, but with that I have something better to look forward to.
The only new years resolution I’m going to make is to become a full fledge Bond Grrl:))) Even though I haven’t posted on my own blog I have been lurking others’ sites. I have been so inspired by my blogger friends to do new things and here is where I’ll be posting all of my inspirations. So look out for me because I’m going to be one bond grrl that can’t be stopped.
HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR
BE BLESSED IN 2007
It's my Birthday!!!! Yess, Yess y'all And You Don't Stop Mica's In The House & Ya Don't Stop!(me singing. heehee)
I'm really happy about it too :-) I turn 29. I almost was going to post about my last year being in my twenties and how I'm going to party like it's 1999! I think I'm going to party like that, but not complain about being 29. It's just that I have been receiving so many blessings within the past month(how can I complain)
I feel like this is the beginning of a great year to come.
First off, I got a promotion!!! Somebody say HALLELUJAH! It's a great position, a lot more work and responsibilities, but a whole lot more $$$$! My co-workers are very nice and my boss is a hard ass, but a softy too so I think he and I will get alone great. The one and only thing I will really miss about my old job is the unlimited blogging I was able to do. Man I miss reading my blogger friends sites everyday. BUT, now I can afford the internet at home. (doing the running man)
My daughter is doing so much better in school, my James and are doing great. My family is healthy and life good. As for my birthday today I don't know what I'm my James has planned for me this evening. He's into the surprise thing but I'm sure we will have a nice time. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow.
One last thing before I get back to work. I wish I knew how to post pictures here cause I'm looking mighty fabulous today. I'm feeling quit like a bond girl today. I'm Bringing Sexy Back! Yea! (me singing again)
Truth or Dare from Xavier
I choose Truth.
In blog land many people are playing internet truth or dare. Xavier
over at Lovers Anonymous
(see link) is playing this game and a lot of people are joining in. I wanted to play, so you know since I'm only a "baby" bond grrl I was to chicken to pick dare. Xavier has been reading up on me (so cute) and gave me a great one.You, Ms. P, Pink and E-z have all been chosen as finalists to audition for the lead role in the next Bond movie. You have all come very far together to even make it to this point and you all should be proud of yourself. You also know that none of you would have gotten this far without the mutual support you all have given each other. But you also know that only one you will get the part. You wish each other luck and each of you give 100% in their audition. When the decision is announced, you learn that of the four of you, you are the first one eliminated. The suspense is palpable. Please tell us truthfully and in detail which of your friends you think is going to get the part & why
As you know I'm crushed that I didn't get the part and to be eliminated first is appalling. Especially since I secretly got extra bong grrl tips from Solitaire=) I suck it up though, and tell all three of them good luck. But in the back of my mind I know who will be the best grrl for the part. Pink. Even though they all have some bond grrl qualities let me tell you why my other two wonderful friends aren't that lucky. Ms. P is what we call the "eek grrl" she is very dainty. She wasn't able to swim through swap waters and parachute out of an air plane to get James away from his nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld... Now e-z would probably end up with the role as one of the grrls that try to destroy James because once she found out that James wasn't going to be around after the love making and adventures she was pissed!!!
So you have it, Pink would be the best bond grrl. Because even though Pink has her own life as a lawyer, mom, house keeper, sister, and friend, she'll be there to pick him up (after he got in too deep with the enemy agents) in her new Porsche, her pistol on her side ready to "ride or die" for her boo James. You see I've seen this happen with Pink first hand. She has literally "bail" her James out of so many problems. She's been in some situation where I couldn't do anything but shake my head and pray for her, because I would have lost my mind behind the things she had to face.
If the part went to her I couldn't do nothing but give her a big hug cause she definitely deserved the part!!!
Thanks-Xavier that was fun!
rambling about moving
I talked to my James about buying a house last night. The conversation went a little like this:me: When are you going to buy a house for me and baby doll?
me: When are you going to buy a house for us?
james: You asked that question wrong you shoulda said, When I'm I going to buy a house that you are going to contribute to?
me: Yea, When are you going to buy a house that I will contribute 15% to?
silencejames: Yea go ahead and laugh.
He goes on to tell me that he doesn't want to rush into buying anything. He can't see himself paying $$$ for a mortgage even if he can afford it. He has been hearing that interest rates are getting ready to drop so he's waiting for the right time. All in all it doesn't sound like he going to buy one in the time I've set for my goal. Now I can respect what he saying since I can't contribute to the financial process of buy the house. (I will be able to help purchase appliances, furniture ect. but that's about it in the beginning.)
I just think that because of his living situation re: still living w/momma & can come & go to my place anytime he well pleases he's comfortable(having his cake & eating it too) and doesn't feel the need to get up and go. But my situation is different because my rent is "high as hell" let alone with all my other bills. I'm not comfortable and feel very depressed when I think about it. My delima is I don't want to move because the school district is good and I'd hate to take my baby away from her friends. Even though I'm really
living from check to check and the little money that I'm able to save aint worth talking about.
I said all that to say I need to move and I don't think he's considering that when he makes his moving plans.
I haven't told him about the goals I posted and maybe I should. I thought about moving home with my mother, but that wouldn't work b/c ...well just because. I didn't want to get another apartment cause it would be just a waste of money to me. So what do I do? Tell my James that he needs to put a rush on that house or just keep living like I'm living...very unBond Grrl like????
It's Been a Long Time
I haven't posted in a long time, I know. I haven't had to much Bond Grrlish stuff going on...I guess. I know I should since S isn't the only one reading my blog now:-) So I'll do some bond grrl stuff this weekend and report back on Monday. In the meantime:today is my MOMMY'S birthday!!!
Happy Birthday MOMMY!!!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!
& my Bond Grrl MOMMA is Getting Married Saturday!!!!
Congratulations on your wedding!!!
James & Solitaire
