DFW Sisterlocks Gathering will be Sunday 2-18-07


I wanted to send a quick "save the date" of the upcoming DFW Sisterlock gathering that will be held in Waco, Tx, Sunday February 18th from 2-5pm at Beatnix Coffeehouse.

Those of you who wanted to come last time prior to the weather cancellation, you can still RSVP until Tuesday February 13th. Prepayment of $17 is requested because this is a catered event. Jen and I are excited to share with everyone in a private and relaxed venue. If you'd like to attend, please email at sweetiepp03-bloggin at yahoo.com with your RSVP and plan of payment. I accept, check/mo, or you can pay me via my paypal (please add an additional $1 as paypal charges me a fee to receive money, please).

Jennifer Hudson and Dreamgirls

Jen and I went to see Dreamgirls shortly after it's opening in theatres and were pleasantly surprised to see such a mixed audience. We got there early enough to get midway center seats which imho are the best. The movie moved along quite well, but I think somewhere in everyone's mind was this sense of courteous patience, waiting for Jennifer to sing Jennifer Holiday's redention of And I am Telling You. I tell you it was such a trip that as soon as she finished the moment came...the entire theatre broke out in a thunderous applause. I think I even cried. Can't remember if Jen did or not, but perhaps.

I guess there's there this feeling of joy, happiness for humble circumstances, for Jennifer's fortitude and having a "never give up" attitude. It's quite inspiring. I'm happy for Jennifer and hope and pray she has a beautiful successful career. Now, my question is, did the audience you sat in during the movie applaud after she finished? I'd be surprised if they didn't. Let me know.

You wanna be dazzled, see her performing I am Changing on Youtube , The Letterman interview, and the interview with hosts of The View, before they're pulled. Congrats to Jennifer Hudson on her Golden Globe Award and I pray continued success for her future endeavors! More pictures of Jennifer can be viewed at Viewimages.com.

My two favorite songs she sings are And I Am Telling you, of course and Love You I Do. Enjoy!

DFW Waco Gathering Cancellation :-(

It's been raining, cold and thunderous here in Waco since yesterday, but it has been worse in the DFW area and getting worser. With 23 women confirmed to attend tomorrow's gathering, it is with discernment and consideration for the safety of all that we cancel and reschedule the gathering. Since over half the attendees would be traveling from the DFW area, it just isn't safe considering the severe weather alerts of freezing pellet sized rain.

A major winter storm is in the forecast for all of North Texas for the remainder of the weekend through early Monday. This has prompted the National Weather Service to issue an ice storm warning for North Texas until 6 a.m. Monday. Significant accumulations are possible with some locations receiving ?to 1? of ice. Stay tuned for further updates.

Thunderstorms and freezing rain. Ice accumulation of one quarter to one half of an inch. Highs in the lower 30s. North winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation near 100 percent.

So, I'll be emailing all who RSVP'd with more details on what we need to do for rescheduling with Beatnix Coffeehouse and the caterer. I thank all who emailed me with excitement about attending the gathering. Jen and I were looking forward to showing everyone a great time! Hopefully the reschuled date will be within a couple of weeks. We are all sad that we can't get together, but I'm sure all involved understand that this is pretty much out of our control. What we can control is making the best decision to cancel and reschedule. May God bless ya until I blog again, which will be real soon!!

Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance! I Passed the Exam!!

I guess I got something to dance about which is a late Christmas present and a New Year's surprise. I passed the Texas State Board for Educator Certification Exam for Generalist 4-8! Yippee!! Thank you to those of you who sent up a prayer for me! God bless ya real good!

Now if I can just find a job so I can complete my intern and apply for official certification. I take Pedagogy this Spring, starting next weekend. All Saturday classes!! Ugh!! Oh well, for now, it's back to the substitute teacher's grind in the morning. I'll be a PE teacher Mon-Tue, the first days back after Christmas Break. Did I mention, I'm willing to relocate???

Jen was practicing on the drums and I was getting a New Year's workout! Don't laugh too hard, now.

You're Invited to the DFW Sisterlocks Gathering

Yes, the next gathering is being hosted by Jen and me in Waco, Tx. Beatnix Coffeehouse is our regular spot a few days of the week but the day we gather, it will be for our use only, a private engagement! Click here to Map Beatnix to plan your commute. To give those who need time to travel or go to church service first, we'll begin at 2pm and end at 5pm.

The approximate cost is $17 which includes entree and sides, plus good ole' sweet tea. If you want to bring any other beverage or dessert of your choice, you are welcome to do so. The event will be custom catered by Blanek's and the menu will include chicken and seafood selections.

Since the coffeehouse will be closed for our use only I plan on having a special video presentation because they have a nice big screen TV/DVD player. Those of you who have poetry to read or a song you want to share, bring it on!! As you see in the invite flyer, they have a nice stage that we'll use for anyone interested in getting in the spotlight, mic and all! I'll be video taping intros and entertainment.

Ladies, we're gonna have fun!!! I need not remind you to bring your cameras. We were considering inviting husbands and SOs, but we'll do that perhaps on the next run! It will be just girls this time! Car-pooling is encouraged.

I know it's short notice, but I need RSVPs by Monday the 8th! If you'd like to attend, please email me at sweetiepp03-bloggin @yahoo.com. Thanks and we look forward to seeing everyone in two Sundays!

NOTE: Headcount is at 18! Please don't forget to email me your RSVP Thanks!!!!

Maryee's Shadow, Miss Tiana

I guess it may be because I don't have children that I love them so much. I'd just met Tiana Christmas day and after she had a long nap, she was spry and ready to hang out. Somehow she took to me and I found out she was mimicking everything I was doing. This two year old is quick, smart and witty! I was having so much fun with her, we had to get it captured on tape. Isn't she the cutest? Thanks Sheryl for sharing your sweet baby with me!
