Winning by Twinning!!!

For those who know me, it will make total sense why I covered this article. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have finally released pictures of their double bundle of joy. The Cannon twins are absolutely adorable and the fact that there are two of them just tugs at your heart. After 5 months in hiding, Monroe and Moroccan Cannon made their first debut on 20/20 with Barbara Walters. Mariah (42) and Nick (31) seemed overjoyed with their new family additions. During the interview, Carey discussed her pregnancy and the joys of becoming a mom. Surprisingly, Carey confessed that she does not want any more kids but when you have twins what more can you ask for?

Children are one of life's greatest gifts and the ability to have two at one time is just miraculous to me. While most people think of the double work load like changing TWO pampers, hearing TWO crying babies, putting TWO babies to sleep, providing for TWO babies at one time, I see it more as a double blessing. Twins typically have a close knit relationship whether they are fraternal or identical. From child birth way into their adult life most twins become best friends by default. I have a deep appreciation for close knit siblings and I would love to have twins of my own.

While twins are rare there are quite a few celebrity twins out there so stay tuned for that story. Congratulations again to the proud parents!!!. How would YOU feel if you found out you was having twins :-)???

Morning Moments

Monday through Friday on a daily basis I find myself totally intrigued by the quirky things that seem to happen only to me. My mornings consist of me running from room to room in a frenzy tyring to get myself together while still making it to work on time. Plagued as a magnet for embarrassing and annoying moments take a look at some of my fondest morning mishap moments:

1. That just want to scream moment when I am ready to walk out the door and I take that last look in the mirror and realize I have panty lines.

2. That mortifying moment when I take my first bathroom back and while washing my hands I realize I and everyone else in the office can tell I have on a PINK bra.

3. That ackward moment when I sit in my office and realize my shirt black and bottom black different blacks.

4. That annoying moment when I have 1 piece of hair that has a mind of its own and no matter how much product I put on it, it distractingly does its own thing throughout the day.

5. That humbling moment when I get to work and am thankful for my emergency stash of deodorant in my desk because I totally forgot to put some on.

6. That embarrassing moment when I am walking down the street and realize my skirt/dress is totally see through.

7. That aggravating moment when after putting on my make up, I change my mind about my outfit just to realize my eye shadow/lip stick now does not match.

8. That silent moment when I go to lunch or run an errand and walk past a mirror catching a glimpse of myself and realize the outfit that I thought was sooooo hot is really not that flattering after all.

9. That priceless moment when I am in my morning meeting talking and I realize I have come undone as I forgot to pull the zipper on my dress all the way up in the back.

10. That anal retentive moment when I am in a meeting with a client and I realize my perfect manicure has a chip and I want to hide that one finger because I now cannot stop staring at it.

11. That precious moment when my irritating coworker tells me she likes my "new shirt" and its not until hours later I realize the heifer knew it was new because I left the price tag on it.

12. That frustrating moment when I finally switch my purse just to realize as I walk out the door my newly packed purse does not match my shoes, so I now have to change it back.

I am sure it is hard to believe that (1) I ever get to work on time and that (2) I actually am able to still look fabulous despite the odds but by some sheer miracle it happens. Maybe waking up a half hour earlier would curb all these mishaps but a gal needs her beauty sleep. What are some of your morning mishaps?

Woman Worry- The Ten Thousand Dollar Phone Call

Woman worry. Whether we are mothers, girlfriends, wives or even just friends we have been burdened with the emotion of worry when it comes to the men we love. In this past week alone how often have you found yourself worrying about your mate, spouse or love interest? Sometimes to resolve this worry all we need is a simple call from our mate reassuring us that they are okay. Some men get this concept and humbly comply,while others struggle with this and are still a work in progress. The question today is what happens when the ones who "get it" are punished? In case your confused let me provide you with an example.....

Last Sunday Pittsburgh Steelers Troy Polamalu, was fined a whooping $10,000 for calling his wife to let her know he was okay. Polamalu made a crucial tackle during Sunday's Steelers vs Jagaurs game and left the game with what was said to be concussion like symptoms. Polamula, who has previously suffered from multiple brain injuries gave everyone a scare during the tackle. Knowing his wife was probably worried sick about him, Polamula attempted to be one of the ones who "get it" so he took to the sidelines and called his wife to tell her he was okay.

We love our men but sometimes we just have to shake our heads at them. NFL rules states that players are not allowed to have electronics or cell phones on the bench premises throughout the game and 90 minutes prior to the start of the game. According to the NFL, Polamalu, violated the rules by calling his wife midway through the game. The saying "damned if they do,damned if they don't" immediately comes to mind.

Polamalu's kind gestures which was probably trying to keep him out of trouble with the Misses will now cause him $10,000. Obviously the unsaid message is that it would have been cheaper to let the wife worry. I applaud Polamula's gesture as it was sincere and done with the right attitude, but it may have helped to finish the game first and then call. Sometimes you just have to shake your head and smile at men.

Quiet Time

When I was a little girl every Saturday night I would watch my Mom polish her nails in preparation for church the next day. When I was of appropriate age my mom allowed me to join her Saturday night ritual, and I to neatly polished and then blew my little figernails dry.

Fast forward a few years later and I still find myself partaking in that very same ritual. My preferred nights have moved to Sunday night in preparation for the week ahead of me. Every Sunday night no matter how late it is or how tired I am, I always find myself sitting on the couch polishing my nails. It could be as simple as putting clear polish on, but it is honestly one of the most mind clearing peaceful moments of my day. When your nails are wet there is nothing you can do but sit still and let them dry. Ironically in the 15 minutes I am drying my nails I am finding solace as well.

It is amazing how some of the silliest things can give us peace. If I had to compose a list of things I do that mentally relax me i would have to say, my nails, organizing my closet and cooking.I cannot wait to pass this same ritual down to my little girl. What are some of the rituals you did with your mom and what are some simple tasks which bring you peace?

Angela S. Naked for PETA

I am a little late with this but I felt compelled to blog about this.

Run's House has always portrayed the Simmons family in a very virtuous "religiously correct" light. No cursing, no real drama, no scandal, just a wholesome nuclear family who has always stayed within the realms some form of innocence. It came to great surprise to me when I saw Angela Simmons pose nude for PETA. The photos were tastefully done with class and grace yet I could not shake the feeling of shock that I had in seeing them. If you follow the Simmons girls they are never cladly dressed, if photoed in a bikini there is usually a matching sarong. The obvious consistent theme has always been trendy yet classy.

It is this same theme that has made Angela Simmon's posing nude for PETA a bit ironic to me. While Angela undeniably looks simply gorgeous in all the photos I have never understood the logic behind celebrities posing nude for PETA. During the shoot Angela was quoted saying "I really want people to know what happens to animals … Animals have feelings, and I think it's important we take action."

Celebrities have been posing nude for PETA for quite some time, Eva Menedez, Taraji Henderson, Holly Madison, Ochocinco, Nia Long, and Chloe Kardashian Odom, Paris Hilton to name a few. In comparison Angela Simmons photos has a different air of class however I am still shocked to see it.

At the end of the day we all make our own decisions about the statements we choose and choose not to make. What are your thoughts?
