Our Royal Wedding Under $10K

He finally popped the question and you're getting married! Congratulations! You back tracked in your mind and thought of all those years of trying to get him to propose on one knee. Then that magical moment happens when he takes your hand and tells you how beautiful you are to him. All you can see is his mouth moving and you can't understand the words, because tears are streaming down your face with anticipation for the "rock" that he is going to put on your left ring finger. He proposes and it becomes official.

All of a sudden, like screeching brakes on a moving car, your heart starts palpitating and now the tough part begins: planning your wedding. There is ultimate nervousness about planning what is to be one of the most important days of your life. You start freaking out and grabbing every wedding magazine that you can find, ripping out the pages, bookmarking and making wedding scrapbooks, and watching every wedding show on television. Your head starts spinning, you’re becoming Bridezilla and people keep asking you about your colors and the date…until you make yourself sick and crash!

Can you really have a fabulous wedding under $10K? Well, I'm here to tell you, sister, you can… and gosh darn it you will!
But, here's the "secret" to having fabulous wedding. Relax. Try not to stress out. You will become physically sick. Surround yourself with people that will calm your nerves. Please realize that the wedding is already fabulous, because you are too! You're getting married! Just breathe. You've found the man of your dreams, and you're looking forward to spending the rest of your life with him.

When it was time to plan our wedding, the first advice that I received from my mom, was to make sure we had enough money set aside for a down payment on a home. We made sure that we did, then started working on planning our special day.

Here's the deal when it comes to planning your big day. First, set a budget. How much can you really afford?  Can you afford to rent a yacht on Sag Harbor and sip on Don Perignon, while Prince serenades your wedding guests in the background? Probably not.
 
I had a fabulous wedding under $10K. Go ahead, ask anyone that attended. My hubby and I "jumped the broom" in a little country town outside of Atlanta in 2005. We were recent college graduates, and didn't have a lot of money. With my Mother-in-Law by my side, we set out to have a grand wedding and were able to stretch our dollars.
Quick Tips:
  • Set your wedding budget. Create an Excel document of all of the items that you wish to buy for your big day and stick to it!
  • Humble yourself . Weddings are a one day event, so don't feel like you need to break the bank.
  • Send a postcard as the RSVP reminder, rather than a stamped envelope. I used VistaPrint.com for our Save the Date postcards. You can send an Evite for free. We invited 225 guests to our wedding and if my memory serves me correctly, we paid less than $50 for our Save the Date cards.
  • Visit less expensive bridal stores because they have great deals. I purchased my dress from David's Bridal for $500 with alterations.
  • Find a recent graduate or current photography student to take photos. Check out his/her portfolio, ask for references, then sign the contract.
  • Print your wedding invitations. At least, do the layout design and get them printed. I purchased my invitations in bulk, and got them printed at Print Time, located in Atlanta. The costs was around $125.
  • Spare using all fresh flowers for your wedding. Flowers can be super expensive. You can combine both artificial and real flowers for your ceremony and reception.  The only fresh flowers we used were on the boutonnieres and bouquets.
  • Use the Church Annex as a reception hall, then have a close friend host the "real" after party at their home.
  • Purchase your cake and groom's cake from Publix Super Markets. We paid less than $225 for both cakes (including a flawless and incident free delivery).
  • Buy or rent decorations in bulk, and/or use decorations from other events.
  • Ask a family friend to cater the food at the wedding. We had a sit down dinner and paid around $6.50 per person.
  • Have a "money dance" at your wedding (Mexican tradition). I borrowed this idea from my best friend, Teresa. My husband and I danced with guests for only a couple of songs and received well over $400. This money was an added bonus for our honeymoon in Martha's Vineyard.
Some feel a lot of pressure to have a storybook celebrity wedding.  You may worry about what your family, friends and guests will say, or if your wedding will appear tacky.  The key is to relax. Give yourself enough time to plan your special day. Get organized, purchase a binder with sleeves for all your items, and ask questions.

At the end of the day, even if you get married in your parent's backyard in the rain, it will still be a memorable day that you will cherish forever. There may be "snafus" along the way, but take them in stride. It's your special day, and it will be wonderful!

How to Live Your Life Without Losing Your Mind in Atlanta

Besides the scorching heat and humidity during the summers, one thing that sticks out in everyone's minds when you say "Atlanta," is the horrible traffic. Atlanta consistently ranks on the Top 10 Worst American Cities for bad traffic.  It's the daily grind, and the hustle and bustle that gets so many road-raged people worked up in the city.  Blood, sweat, and tears pour out on the concrete jungle.  According to the 2010 census, and Wikipedia, the Atlanta metropolitan area, with more than 5.4 million people, is the third largest in the Southeastern United States and the ninth largest in the country.

Atlanta is so busy at times, you wonder how people get from point A to B without losing their minds.  While witnessing and engaging with the daily road rage culprits and victims, it is a necessity to find ways to cope with the stress of traffic in the city. According to The Wellness Institute of America there are many Signs & Symptoms of Stress:

Common symptoms of stress:
  • Tired, Exhausted
  • Migraine/Tension Headaches
  • Insomnia, Sleep Issues
  • Tension in Neck, Shoulders
Stress can affect life and work:
  • Limits daily activities
  • Limits household duties
  • Limits exercise - sports
  • Limits hobbies - activities
Having lived in Atlanta on and off for about 10 years, I find ways to cope with stress by exercising, creative writing, taking family trips, pampering myself, and sometimes just staying indoors to enjoy family and “me time.”  Some people get massages to prevent a nervous breakdown, practice yoga, read, write, hike, or mediate.

However you choose to deal with stress, it's good to recognize when your emotions are starting to go "down hill," and do something about it.  Sometimes all you need to do is talk to someone you trust about your problem(s).  Find what you love to do to relax and do it.  If this activity can include your life purpose, then you will greatly benefit as well.

Praise for MALCOLM X: A LIFE OF REINVENTION


Praise for MALCOLM X: A LIFE OF REINVENTION
By Manning Marable
(Viking; Embargoed; Strict On Sale Date: April 4, 2011; ISBN: 978-0-670-02220-5; $30.00)
 “It will be difficult for anyone to better this book. It goes deeper and richer than a mere homage to Malcolm X. It is a work of art, a feast that combines genres skillfully: biography, true-crime, political commentary. It gives us Malcolm X in full gallop, a man who died for his belief in freedom, a man whom Marable calls the ‘fountainhead’ of the black power movement in America.” —The Washington Post
 
“In his revealing and prodigiously researched new biography, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, Manning Marable — a professor at Columbia University and the director of its Center for Contemporary Black History, who died just last week — vividly chronicles these many incarnations of his subject. . . Mr. Marable artfully strips away the layers and layers of myth that have been lacquered onto his subject’s life — first by Malcolm himself in that famous memoir, and later by both supporters and opponents after his assassination in 1965 at the age of 39. — Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times



“Unlike Bruce Perry’s 1991 biography, Malcolm, which entertained the most outlandish stories in an attempt to present a comprehensive portrait, Marable’s biography judiciously sifts fact from myth.” —The Atlantic

“His [Marable’s] work of scraping away accreted layers of myth to show the complex, conflicted figure of Malcolm X was needed not only for history’s sake, but as an antidote to the twin maladies of demonization and hero worship.” Boston Globe

“This book is a must read.” Ebony

“Thankfully, we have Manning Marable's new biography, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention — which is, simply put, a stunning achievement — to help us better understand Malcolm’s complex life.” The Philadelphia Tribune



“The book also has much to recommend it for its history of orthodox Islam, the perspective it offers on the black political movements of the 1950s and 1960s that changed America, and its insights into the development and inner workings of the Nation of Islam.”
The Financial Times

“Manning Marable’s scholarship was as provocative and profound as it was prodigious.” —Newsday

“The Malcolm book stands as the greatest testament we could have to Manning Marable’s brilliance, his passion, and his intellectual fortitude.  He devoted his magnificent career—more than most scholars do—to living what he wrote and what he thought. His commitment not only to equality of opportunity but also to the exposure of falsehood and hypocrisy was a hallmark of his pathbreaking work.” —The Chronicle of Higher Education

“Marable accomplishes the difficult task of showing the bad boy of the civil rights era as an actual human being . . . Each page almost secretes the formidable research into hard facts. Marable lets the chips fall where they may because he is interested in the humanity of Malcolm X, as all true scholars should be.” New York Daily News

“The poet Robert Hayden once captured the essence of Malcolm X's life in a paradox: ‘He rose renewed renamed, became / much more than there was time for him to be.’ Nowhere is this more apparent than in Marable's biography. This is history at its finest—written with passion and attention and drive. It is a fitting testament to the lives and the legacies of both subject and author.” —TheBarnesandNobleReview.com
“It will be difficult for anyone to better this book. It’s deeper and richer than a mere homage to Malcolm X. It is a work of art, a feast that combines genres skillfully: biography, true crime, political commentary. It gives us Malcolm X in full gallop, a man who died for his belief in freedom, a man whom Marable calls the ‘fountainhead’ of the black power movement in America.” —Truthdig.com

“Marable’s definitive biography is now the standard by which scholars can evaluate, not just what Malcolm X said, but what generations of others have said about him.” The National

“This book is not the only representation of Manning's brilliance, however. Rather, it is a culmination of a lifetime of scholarship and activism, a larger project devoted to telling the stories of a people engaged in an epic, painful and beautiful struggle for freedom. That story had no better chronicler, that struggle no greater champion than Manning Marable.” —BlackVoices.com

“This superbly perceptive and resolutely honest book will long endure as a definitive treatment of Malcolm’s life, if not of the actors complicit in his death.”—The Wilson Quarterly

“The book is cause for celebration . . . The book is full of revelations, big and small, and amounts to a full-on reconsideration of Malcolm’s life and death. Marable struggled heroically to finish it; saddened as we were by the news of his death, we’re glad that he lived long enough to hold it in his hands.” —VeryShortList.com



















Praise for Manning Marable
“As Malcolm lived on through his best-selling autobiography, so will Marable, through his unmatched body of writing, his educational contributions, his illuminations on Malcolm X's legacy and his devoted students.” CNN.Com

“Manning was an unflinching and breathtakingly prolific scholar whose commitments to racial, economic, gender, and international justice were unparalleled . . . That we will have his long-anticipated, great and final work even as he leaves us is so classically, tragically appropriate. Manning would never leave us without one more contribution, one more trail blazed, one more bar raised, one more possibility realized, one last drink from the great well of himself.”The Nation

“While Marable himself is irreplaceable, he has provided a foundation for future generations and will continue to shape our understanding of social change and justice.” TheRoot.com

“A prolific scholar.” The Columbia Record

LA Lakers, GLAAD work together to keep gay slurs off the court

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Los Angeles Lakers say they'll work with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation on ways to keep anti-gay slurs out of basketball.

The Lakers and GLAAD announced a partnership Friday, three days after Kobe Bryant was spotted on a national television broadcast yelling a gay slur in frustration over a referee's call.

Team spokesman John Black says Bryant's words aren't representative of what the 16-time NBA champion club represents, and the Lakers will work with GLAAD on ways to educate their players and fans.

GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios says his organization will advocate zero-tolerance policies for anti-gay slurs at sports events, similar to a policy adopted by the New York Yankees.

Talking about the Birds and the Bees

 
When do you talk about the Birds and the Bees with your kids?  Our oldest son is almost 4 years old and is very aware that girls and boys have different body parts. Yesterday, while brushing his teeth with Daddy in the bathroom he asked, "Daddy, where do you come from?"  I paused from fixing the corner of the bed sheets and looked toward the bathroom door, my ears were burning from trying to hear the response.  Daddy responded, "from Grammy."  

Our oldest son, remembers when his younger brother was in "Mommy's belly."  I'm sure he also has flashbacks of the waiting room at Emory University Hospital, when I was pacing up and down the hallway, holding my back, and rocking back and forth from contractions.  There’s also a chance that he doesn’t remember. 

I recall talking to my mom briefly about sex.  I was too embarrassed and politely brushed her off when she tried to engage me in the "Sex Talk."  My mom pulled out the great colorful children's book, written by Peter Mayle, Where Do I Come From?  We even had the "African American edition."  The pudgy couple looked like "Meet the Browns."  The cartoon images of a man and woman were nicely illustrated on the various semi-glossy pages.  As children, we thought we were looking at a scandalous X-rated magazine, though it did do a good job describing what "goes down" when couples “get together." 

A recent survey by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), found that 93% of adults support sex education in high school and 84% support it in junior high school.  Come to think of it, I vaguely remember my twin and I taking a sex ed class, either in junior high or high school.  Sex education in schools is a hot topic that has Congress up in arms.  Personally, I'd prefer my sons learn about sex education at home and in school.  This would have a double impact on them.

In these times, you have to direct the conversation past the Birds and the Bees with children.  STDs and HIV/AIDS should be addressed at some point.  Surprisingly, you don't hear too much about those topics in the mainstream media anymore.  The signs about the startling statistics of African Americans and AIDS around West End are gone or peeling away.  It's like the four-letter word has been forgotten.  A study by the CDC found that Blacks/African Americans accounted for the majority of the estimated number of AIDS diagnoses made during 2007, followed by Whites and Hispanic/Latinos.  The South has the highest percentage of new HIV rates in the country.

If parents talk more openly about STDs and HIV/AIDS with their children, then they would further abstain from unprotected sex.  Granted, our boys are young, but I can imagine showing children images of what my mom called in her childhood, "VD."  That would definitely keep their britches on tight.

I don't know a good age to talk to kids about sex.  When do you bring it up?  Do you wait for them?  We know the consequences if you wait too late?  Try the show on MTV, "Teen Mom."  I'm going to do my best to have an open dialogue about sex education with our kids.  It may be uncomfortable for both parties, but risk factors and safer sex behaviors should be openly discussed.

Confessions of an Atlanta Mom: Working and Breastfeeding. Holy Cow!



I have always been strongly committed to family but also pursuing my professional goals and a successful career. Working full-time, being a wife, raising two boys and on top of all of that pumping at work has its challenges, but in the midst of it all I still have time to laugh. Below are not only some tips for stay-at-work nursing moms, but hopefully information that will provide a good laugh and some “Uh-huh’s” from “The Amen Corner. ”

1. Never wear white to work. NEVER! Milk stains and will create funny-looking circles on your shirt.

2. Bring a separate bag to work just for your nursing supplies. Spilled milk can stain the inside of your purse and cause a strong odor.

3. If nursing, pump in a private and quiet room to allow your milk to flow. If distracted, bring a picture of your child to allow your milk to come down.

4. If you feel comfortable, you can tell your colleagues that you are nursing  and throughout the day you will need to be excused to pump. Involving them will create a support system.

5. Eat solid meals and drink lots of water throughout the day, not only to maintain your energy but to keep up your milk supply!

At my previous job, my colleague and I returned from maternity leave about the same time, and I found it difficult to pump in the ladies’ room.

Pier 1 outdoor furniture and décor.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Pier 1 TweetupsPier 1 TweetupsI can remember growing up sitting in my mom's  white outdoor chair, next to the matching outdoor wicker end table, as she rubbed my back and sang sweet songs in my ear. The calm wind from outdoors, would fill the back enclosed porch and her warmth comforted me. The comfortable furniture she purchased throughout the years from Pier 1 was so versatile, that it could be placed indoors or outdoors.

I'm sure you've been to Pier 1. If not, then you've got to go visit. Their items give you the "WoW" factor, and you want to bring the entire store home with you. From their rugs, seating, wall decor, vases, and wreaths. We receive complements all the time, on our front door wreath purchased from Pier 1

Pier 1 outdoor furniture has been in our household since I was a little kid. I've followed my mom's advice on purchasing quality furniture. I absolutely love to view their site and go to  Pier 1 to checkout the unique furniture, seasonal items and shop for gifts. 

March 20th marked the official start to spring! In viewing the Pier 1 site, I can't help but look for some spring must haves from  Pier 1!

On the top of my list is the iconic Pier 1 Papasan! Check out all the different outdoor Papasans that are available this spring! (View the outdoor Papasan, outdoor double Papasan, and Swingasan).

Being Married with Two Boys is a lot of work! The furniture from Pier 1 is beautiful, dependable and can hold two boys and my husband all at the same time! Happy Shopping! Happy Spring!
