To say that I am immensely blessed is an understatement ❤️ My grandma can count on 2 fingers the number of thanksgiving holidays that she hasn’t hosted and last week was one of them 😮🥹 just let that sink in‼️ She has limited mobility these days and lives 4 hours away but has managed to visit our house 4 times already! Hosting thanksgiving while carrying a nearly full-term baby was stressful 😅 but I wouldn’t have given up the experience for anything! And hosting my baby brother & his fiancé this summer was such a beautiful experience too. I’m beyond grateful that we have been afforded these opportunities with our family as homeowners. I take none of it for granted.

#AD Pregnancy can be challenging, but finding an insurance plan that works for your family doesn’t have to be thanks to the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Federal Employee Program. With three plan options designed to support every need and budget, it’s no wonder the #BCBSFEP is the number 1 plan for federal employees!

Who’s your mummy!? 🎃 #Halloween2023

Desmond’s first grade school photo came in yesterday & I am not okay 😭😭😭 Swipe to see his school photos from kindergarten. At his school, they do a fall photo (blue background) and a spring photo (seated). The difference between last year and this year just seems so drastic to me! 😢 I am not ready for Desmond to start growing up. There - I said it. Any other parents (or aunties & uncles) out there feel the way I feel?! Let me know!

I call this random #photodump (really a #videodump) “Dezzy, your days as an only child are numbered” 🤣🤣 1️⃣ He rediscovered this jacket & wanted a picture of himself in it 🥰😎 2️⃣ I went to his school for their Fun Run. It took some time before he saw me and gave me that little “ok mom, geez. I see you, ok?! Don’t embarrass me” wave 🤣 3️⃣ When Desmond pulls his glasses down, he becomes Grandpa Desmond 😅 4️⃣ Working on his breast stroke at britishswimschool bssmocomd 5️⃣ There’s this reel by taytoivi about detective tv shows that Desmond has memorized 🤣 “What is this?! Lava Java?!” 6️⃣, 7️⃣, & 8️⃣ were from his besties birthday party! We had so much fun! 9️⃣ Another day, another school pick-up 🥰 idk why my voice is so high pitched here 🤣 🔟 If you made it this far… this slide ain’t got nothin to do with Dezzy 🤣🤣🤣

Can we PLEASE stop?! No pregnant woman is asking to be constantly reminded of how big OR small she looks. You probably think it’s a compliment (especially when you say she’s barely showing) but it isn’t! The ability to carry life inside of us - it’s a beautiful gift from God. I love my pregnant body and I love to show it off. I’m not showing it off so people will comment on it, though.

It’s round 4 for Karl (yes, with a “K”) and all professionalism has gone out the window 😅

It’s Career Tip Tuesday! I know this seems so basic but the more attention you pay in this stage, the less you’ll be rejected! Additional helpful tips: ✅ try to choose jobs posted within the last 2 weeks ✅ switch up your keywords when searching for jobs! I’m posting a TikTok about this today too! Check it out! ✅ if you get really good at optimizing your resume, it won’t take long! Shameless plug but I have an e-book on sale that’ll teach you how to do it easily! What other career topics would you all like to see videos on?! Let me know!

The short answer - NO! So I was recently laid off & I realized that although I am typically a very private person, sharing my journey as an unemployed career coach is actually GOOD for my business! The layoff had nothing to do with me. I have nothing to be ashamed of 🤷🏾‍♀️ and if you work long enough, you’ll either be directly or indirectly impacted by layoffs. But guess what?! Everything I teach on #CareerTipTuesdays (which are coming back consistently now that I ain’t got no job 🤣) actually WORKS and I’m going to prove it to you! ✅Remote jobs are out here - you just need to know where to look! ✅My resume revamps are GOLD! They’ve helped hundreds of clients get new jobs & they’re helping me too! ✅My interview skills are on point! ✅And when the offers come in (which they will), I know how to negotiate! My last day was Friday, it’s now Monday & I have a phone screen today 🎉🙌🏾 If you’re unemployed, please don’t be discouraged! God hasn’t forgotten about me & He hasn’t forgotten you either! You might just need to switch up your approach! Don’t keep applying for jobs with the same old resume & expect different results! DM me if you’re struggling! I can’t wait to share more with you all about my unemployment journey as a career coach. If you have questions for me or topics you want me to cover in my reels, please leave them below!

IT’S NATIONAL SON’S DAY!!! 💙💙💙 Happy Son’s Day to the boy who brightens up my world, teaches me daily, beats me ruthlessly at Mario Kart & Super Smash Bros, TRASH TALKS while beating me 🤣, gives the warmest hugs, tells the funniest jokes, and showed me a type of love I never knew existed before I became a mom. I love my little Dezzy! I’m so blessed to be a #BoyMom & fortunate that God chose me to be Dezzy’s mom! 💙 #NationalSonsDay #SonsDay #BlackBoyJoy✊🏾

The past week in photos… Desmond started 1st grade & my baby bro came to visit from Cali to celebrate his birthday‼️😍 My brother reunited with his dad after years apart & they realized within the first 30 seconds that they’re basically the same person 😂❤️ My heart is so full! And from the looks of it, my belly is full too 😂🥰 What was your favorite thing that happened in your world this past week? Let me know!

…and if you say “I never peed on myself during pregnancy/postpartum” I know you are lying 😂😂😂 it’s ok, sis. You’re among friends here lol Now who’s brave enough to tell the truth? 🙋🏾‍♀️

I asked in my #Stories what topics y’all want me to cover for #CareerTipTuesdays and a few people mentioned career transitions so let’s talk about it! When making a career transition, your resume is a ✨VITAL✨ tool! Your application won’t make it past the applicant tracking system (ATS) filters without transferable skills. These are skills you already possess that are also important for the job you seek. 🗣️Be sure to include them! If you’ve been here long enough, you know I will talk about resume optimization until I’m blue in the face 😂 and for good reason - if you’re not optimizing your resume for each job, you can forget about your application being noticed. I tell my coaching clients all the time - think of a job posting as a QUESTION where your resume has to be the ANSWER. Make sure your resume is answering all of the correct questions otherwise your application will not be taken seriously. Are you currently trying to make a career transition or do you plan to make one in the future? 🙋🏾‍♀️ the_restartuplife is here for all of your career transition needs! DM me today with any questions you may have about our services!

Weekend Recap (in no particular order, lol): 1️⃣ Checked out the LEGO store with Dez. I told him we were “just browsing” because the LEGO store is expensive. The one kit we looked at, I checked the price online & it was $13 cheaper! 2️⃣ We ate at Cheesecake Factory yesterday after church. They sat us at one of those small booths for 2 people & when the food came, the table was FULL! We ate GOOD 🥰😋 3️⃣ Church with Dezzy. I am ordering him noise cancelling headphones because he’s very sensitive to sound & always gets overstimulated during service. 4️⃣ He somehow convinced me to take him to the park during our walk Saturday 😅 I can’t stand the park but we had fun. Also peep the socks & sandals 🤷🏾‍♀️🤣 whose mans is this?! 😂😂😂 5️⃣ - 1️⃣0️⃣ The Bald Brothers Tour! I’m so glad my sister was able to come with me! We laughed til we cried & then laughed some more! If they’re coming to a city near you (& it’s not sold out already…) DEFINITELY go! What did you all do this weekend? #weekendrecap #thebaldbrotherstour
