This year I promised you a few more personal posts about the woman behind the blog. I do not like the limelight, but as a blog personality, I need to learn to appreciate the platform I have. I want to share a few of the things I love about Dallas and the places I like to frequent.
The “Mister.” and I are celebrating ten years of matrimony. So we decided to have a few date nights last week, and we chose Crossroads Restaurant at the House of Blues in Dallas as one of our stops. Unfortunately, we chose to visit on a night that didn’t have any bands playing, but we still had a good time meeting the manager, taking a tour of the facility, and enjoying some good food.
I have been to the House of Blues in the past for concerts. Just recently I attended the Snoop Dogg concert with VIP access to the Foundation Room, a cool Moroccan theme lounge where special guests or members can hang before and after the concert. But this is the first time I’ve gone to HOB specifically to dine.
Chris Brown is in rehab and he’s still making the headlines! First he drops a new song, Loyal; then TMZ reports that his probation in the Rihanna case has been revoked, and today we find out Karrueche Tran, Draya Michelle, Meagan Good, Christina Milian, and Adrienne Baillon have teamed up for a new anti-bullying campaign called Be You! Something tells me, knowing black twitter, this will somehow have the opposite effect.

Just want to say ¡CONGRATS! from Dallas, TX to our own Ms. Toni, and let her know that we are rooting for her to win big. Ms. Toni’s was selected out of thousands of people and multiple rounds of auditions to appear on Wheel of Fortune. We are so excited for her!!!
Must be nice to have something like this crossed off your bucket list so young. Maybe now I can follow my dream of being on Jeopardy. Anyway, we just want to wish Ms. Toni lots of luck with a dose blessings. Gone make that money, honey!!!
I feel like singing Drake right now, “Started from the bottom now we’re here.” LOL!
Last night in Los Angeles, Sports and Hollywood collided at the 2012 ESPN ESPY Awards celebrating the best and brightest in sports.
Matt Kemp of the LA Dodgers was the best dressed male arriving on the red carpet. We love that he is so involved with the Hollywood sports community. He is truly taking advantage of what being a sports star in LA has to offer…lots of perks!
Also in attendance was some of your favorite sports stars such as Jeremy Lin who took home an ESPY Award for “Best Breakthrough Athlete”-well deserved for catching attention of a global sports audience.

Last night and way into the early morning, we partied the night away with the best, biggest and brightest celebrity athletes in Hollywood at the 2012 ESPY Awards After-Party in Los Angeles, CA.
After attending the ESPY Awards, we were treated to a post-party production with lavish food and drinks along with DJ Biz Markie spinning old school tunes.
The stage was set, but no one knew for whom. We got up close front row to the stage only to find out that Lauryn Hill would be the surprise guest. All we can say is that she brought down the house. Rocking a short natural look, not only did she look amazing, she sounded great.
After her performance last night, I no longer have any worry nor concern about whether she can make a comeback. Lauryn Hill is all good. Also, I no longer have any concern about what appears to be a decline of female emcees. As long as we have Lauryn around, females in R&B and hip-hop have no excuse-at least she is still somewhat in the game to give us a balance. Anways, she performed a medley of songs from her solo album such as “X-Factor”,”Everything is Everyting”, “That Thing”,”Lost Ones” and took it back to Fugees with “Oh La La La”.
