Irene is Coming!!

Grab your flash lights, batteries, coolers, and ice because it is about to go down! lol

Really family,

I'm usually not one to over react about storms and such but this one is suppose to be a mother!! I have heard about little else in the last few days and I even got a notice on my door to remove all air conditioners from windows to avoid water disruption. I repeat, ITS ABOUT TO GO DOWN! I had to cancel my Baltimore Natural Hair Meet Up this weekend which dang near broke my little excited heart smh. So, I thought I would put a few of the tips I have been hearing below just in case you live under a rock and haven't heard the thousands of news casts and people talking in the hallways, train stations,  and bus stops about this hurricane. Here you go:)

-Have a radio and batteries handy in case of a power outage so that you will be informed of the latest developments.
-Keep a cooler and ice handy in case of a power outage.
-Keep away from windows and skylights and make sure both are closed and secured.
-Invest in a decent size flash light and lots of batteries
-Grab a deck of cards, crayons, and coloring books in case of an power outage so you can have a little fun indoors:) (Courtesy of Vida at my job)

Well that's all I really have folks. If you're a meat eater, it may be a good idea to get a separate cooler for meat in case of an power outage so it won't go bad. Diabetics please get a cooler to put your medicine in if you take insulin (learned from my mommy :). I hope this posts helps you all in some way. If you have any hurricane safety tips please leave them below. Until next time I wish you all peace and light.



  1. I must have missed your cancel notice and showed up at Exit the Apple anyway. I was still able to grab the products that I needed and enjoyed my rainy afternoon. Hopefully it will be rescheduled for a time that I will be available. Was looking forward to meeting everyone. Have a great week.

  2. aw! so sorry this happened!! we rescheduled for this saturday the 3rd
