A very heartfelt THANKS for all the prayers and support for my last post. I stay very appreciative of you all. I'm also very thankful to everyone that has purchased my blook so far. I am blown away by the response. If you haven’t snagged a copy and and would love to, it’s available here. No pressure though, LOL.

School is back in session and every year at this time, I say I feel like I was run over by a truck. That’s because I truly do. Going from being home for 10 weeks, sleeping in and just lazying around the house to setting up the classroom in on Monday, staff development all day Tuesday and 26 kindergarteners on Wednesday, getting out of bed at 4am daily is like going from zero to 100 in no time. I’m glad it’s the weekend. Time to relax and rejuvenate cos I am totally pooped. 

I attended SoulFest with 5 of my friends two weeks ago at the Thunder Valley Casino & Resort in Lincoln Ca. The O’jays, the whispers, Evelyn Champagne King all performed. We ate, ate some more, partied till the wee hours of the morning and crashed in our 2 beautiful suites. Leaving in the morning was hard. Getting together with friends is always so fun and this was truly a magical outing. 

This a very quick share of my look to the concert. I hope you all had a phenomenal week.

  2. so pretty in this delicate pink set! I absolutely love this look. All the accessories are right on point. The lace up heels match wonderfully with that tie necklace. Those flares are totally perfect and that cropped top is so fabulous...such a lovely bag too!

    All in all, a wonderful outfit. Flawless make up and hairdo as well. You look stunningly beautiful.

    I can imagine how stressful the start of a new school year can be.....I have almost forgot about it. I say almost because I'm still applying for teacher's jobs in state schools. It seems a shame to give up on trying after all the time and money I put into my education.

  6. You look gorgeous in pink Idu... I love the fit and flare of these pants and the shoes are so pretty (not sure I could stand in them, let alone walk) but I do admire them.

    That first week back after a long vacation is tough to get back into the swing of it... Kindergartners is a difficult age but I be very rewarding when they learn things... my grandson is 5 and starts school this year, he is really excited xox

  31. Idu, you are amazing. I missed the previous post, but upon reading the first sentence of this post, I read it and I'm so glad I did. Your testimony is one that's inspiring and proves just how good God IS. Though He heeled you, YOU were/are strong to have gone through it all and your life will forever touch every single person you meet and share your story, you are a miracle. May you forever have perfect health and joy each day of your life. Between these two posts, I've learnt so much about you! I didn't know you have 4 children (girl, I want to look just like you after having 1 kid, haha!). I also didn't know you are a kindergarten teacher, I know that's a lot of work, a friend of mine was and just didn't feel it was the best age group for her, you do need a lot of patience and understanding, a true gift. Anyway, you look gorgeous as always in this pairing and I'm so glad you had a great time at Soul Fest with the girls! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have the most amazing week ahead!
