I know that I am a couple of days late, but since this is a Halloween post, let me wish you all a very Happy Halloween!  I hope you all had a wonderful day and are enjoying the candy.  If you are one of those people that don't celebrate Halloween, I at least hope you are enjoying some type of candy.  

So, let's move on.  I don't know how many of you keep up with some internet madness, but someone decided they wanted to post Fat Girl Halloween Costumes on their website.  I say someone because I shop at Walmart for my groceries and I like them for that reason, but in between them posting Fat Girl and the 30 minutes I had to wait in line today and it wasn't Black Friday was just way too much.  Walmart corrected the errors of their ways, apologized, and made peace with it's shoppers.  

However, this event reminded me of how tough it can be for us to find costumes.  At least in the small metropolitan areas I live in, this can be a huge task.  However, after searching on Pinterest, I saw a costume that I liked and ironically I already had everything I needed, except the wig.  My store of choice - Halloween Express!  Although I only went in there to get a wig, I enjoyed seeing people in there of my size and larger trying on costumes.  It was quite refreshing to see this.  

As plus divas, beauties, or whatever you want to call yourself, I think it is time we branch out and get out of the pace of not dressing up for Halloween because we can't find a costume.  There are costumes for us and we should rock the hell out of them.  In fact, a lady similar to size to me dressed up as a devil and I seriously wanted to trade outfits with her while we were at the party in my neighborhood.  

Now, if you are wondering what I dressed as, I considered myself a witch.  Honestly, my favorite part was the wig.  It seemed to be a big hit and once the teens started giving me compliments, this chick really started feeling confident.  

I love Halloween and this is only the second year in my adult life that I have felt comfortable enough to dress up.  Ladies, enjoy yourself and when Halloween comes around next year, find a costume that you like and enjoy the night.  Just an FYI, Halloween falls on a Saturday next year.  Yep, I'm already planning! 

So, did you like my outfit?

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
