Dear Table 7

Dear Table 7,

I would like to inform you personally on how the reception went in celebration of Sekeitha & Blake Osborne. Although I only know you as the typed names on the table directory, I feel somewhat responsible for filling you in on the amazing time you missed out on. Our table was located directly in front of the DJ booth. It would have allowed us to get our karaoke on all afternoon long, as well as be the first to put our song requests in. Don’t worry, I made enough requests for all 9 of you. I was sure to include a mixture of new & old school songs. The menu consisted of an assortment of baked breads, salad, your choice of either: four cheese ravioli, pesto Alfredo sauce with grilled chicken, tomatoes & basil salmon, lemon & herbs, for dessert you could have chosen between: NY cheesecake, apple crostata, or wedding cake. Now originally I was going to go for the salmon, but opted for the pesto instead (I love me some pesto! Lol) & for dessert I indulged in both the apple crostata and wedding cake. (Listen. I wasn’t planning on having double dessert, but with the lack of communication to the person to the left, right, or front of me I had no choice, but to keep eating. The bride & the groom were the cutest couple you ever did see. The sheer elation on their faces was enough to bring a tear to your eyes. Their first dance was endearing & playful. The groom may or may not have had two left feet…but that’s okay! If you were here you could have came to your own conclusion. I do want to thank you my dearest table 7. You single handedly pushed my social skills to the limit & forced me to become friends with the photographer, DJ, and wait staff. We have made plans for next weekend. LOL all in all I had a great time, but next time…just let a sister know sum!! 

Love & Light 


okay…i met this guy (he’ll be A) a few weeks ago while out at a day party. seemed like a pretty good person, funny, cute, you know, the usual. he’s pretty big on the club scene so for the next few weeks my friends and i tag along to a couple of events. we talk pretty regularly about various topics & seem to enjoy each others conversation and time. well…one day he invites my friend and i out to party. (not uncommon) when we get there i run into another guy (we’ll call him B) i met roughly 3 years ago. i was excited to see him because i hadn’t in about 2 years! so we we catch up and fill each other in on what’s happened for the last 730 days of our lives, and after talking to B, A comes up to me and accuses me of trying to “get” with B. well this is just ludicrous because i have known B for years and nothing has come of it. so i assure him that this is not the case and the night goes on. about an hour later A pulls me aside again and calls me out on trying to get B’s number. i remind him that i have known B for 3 years and we have had each other’s number for a while now. he storms off and i return to my friend. 5 minutes later A walks by me and YELLS “Keshia don’t ever call me!” now listen. i could not believe what just happened! lol not to mention another patron at the bar looks to me and says, “now Keshia, don’t ever call him again.” at this point i have a look of HORROR on my face while my friend is laughing uncontrollably. ok, there is a point to this. IF you are NOT in a relationship…what boundaries should you respect when out with a friend?

diy headboard

so about a week an a half ago i decided that i needed a headboard for my bed. the struggle of getting my bedroom together has been ongoing for well over a year and a half. (i’ve been super trifling) i bought a mattress and boxspring, but not a headboard or even a bed frame. (so yes, my bed is currently chilling on the floor ha!) i love looking up DIY projects, but never get around to it. so i have finally committed to starting. first up was my headboard. in this post i will give step by step instructions on how to make your own headboard for under $100. yes you read that right! UNDER $100 wahoo! 🙂  Continue reading
