BOWL Championship Series.... has BEGUN!!!!


This is the BEST PART of the HOLIDAYS: BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES!
This is when you get to see some of your favorite teams play in Post Season play or maybe some of your not-so favorite teams play too!
FOR ME: I only get a chance to enjoy one- ALABAMA!
The Ohio State University went undefeated but because of TATTOOGATE we wont see a Bowl game!
Let me not bring up the University of Southern Mississippi because they went  0-12
So with that said, I look forward to what the BCS series will bring and get a chance to watch some good players BALL OUT!!!!
Which is your favorite BOWL GAME??

INSTA-STEALING????

EVEN though Instagram QUICKLY turned this around, I have taken a much needed hiatus from the site. I post LOTS of pictures of my family & things I want to share with my followers and I value the fact that I DO NOT WANT ANYONE SELLING THOSE PICTURES WITHOUT MY CONSENT!

Who knows... Maybe I will rejoin it again, but let me just tell you that if a Lawyer's wife isn't comfortable with it then you know it is SUSPECT!

Have you posted any pics on your Instagram lately??

THE ULTIMATE RIVALRY: 20 years later

The Ohio State University vs. Michigan University




About 20 years ago, a father took his daughter to her first college football game. They dressed up in Scarlet & Grey and headed towards the stadium. Little did this young girl know that her love for College Football would meet her at the BLOW OF A WHISTLE! She was in awe of seeing the game in person!

The yelling, the passion, the love, along with the sharpness of the school colors created a visual that she would never forget. Her love grew stronger as each quarter went by and she began to learn more about the game when the game was over.
This little girl was ME

I got a chance to go back to The Ohio State University and enjoy this game with my Mother on the day that would have been my father's 58th birthday.







My Team won and I had the chance to witness it again! To God be the GLORY!

WE BEAT MICHIGAN!!!

I am embracing a new chapter where I am changing careers and going after my Master's Degree in Sport Management. This game and experience gave me everything I needed to be motivated to P.U.S.H. forward!

The Buckeyes are my Team!

I love College Sports!

Thanks to my father Dillet Montgomery, Rest in Peace!

My God daughter LAILA


I have been blessed to become a mother, then a wife, and then a mother/stepmother in that order. Life doesn't happen the way you think it should but there are many reasons why God works the way he does. A great friend of mine, Kijonna Roe, told me that she wanted me to be Laila Marie's God mother. The first thing I thought was, "UMMMM WHY??" LOL! I was terrified. I have two boys and here you go putting a girl in my life on top of my beautiful teenage stepdaughter.

She reminded me of how supportive we've been of each other through our lives and that it takes a village to raise a child. Little did we know that LAILA needed that village that her mother was creating around her. Laila was born prematurely and suffered many complications during her birth. She was born April 26, 2012 weighing at 1 pound and 6 ounces. IMAGINE THAT! Imagine the pain I felt for someone that I couldn't endure their pain for them. RIGHT THEN SHE WAS MY OWN.

I could encourage KJ but I wanted to ease all of her pain. LAILA is stronger than ever and we just celebrated her christening. The photos above are here on the day she was christened and she is doing great. LAILA reminds me of how I strong we have to be in silence and how our actions can change the lives of those around us. Please help me support her and other babies that endure a battle everyday at:

Dropping IT Low on HALLOWEEN

My son, Sean, dared me to be the SUN DROP girl from the commercials he loves on television. So it took me two years to get up enough nerve to do it!

I picked a few locations we would visit and make sure that there were people around to have fun in the moment!

I must say I DO NOT know how I will top this next year, but we had a blast this year!!!

SHOUT OUT to @Keishanycpr for the Instagram collage!!!

My FIRST LOVE... College FOOTBALL *_*

It is something about the month of September that calms me. It is not the cool weather. It is not the brisk wind. It is the sound of a whistle to let AMERICA know that it is time for COLLEGE FOOTBALL. One of the greatest gifts my father gave to me was my love for FOOTBALL. I always favored College Football because of the competition but as long as I hear that whistle I AM GAME!

Now to break down where my love goes during Football season is always tough to explain. Folks criticize my loyalties but they are MINE! I know why I favorite a school or pro team and why I do not. Let me explain:

THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY:

What can I say!? I LOVE YOU! Seeing a Michigan vs. Ohio State game for the first time at a young age can change a girl's life. Some of the greatest college players and coaches have been a part of this university. The rivalry between Michigan & Ohio State intrigued me and always showed me that there is just a certain passion in College football that's not in the Professional league. 

ALABAMA:

ROLL DAMN TIDE! <----- Every time I think of BAMA I hear a Southern fan screaming this at the top of their lungs! It is contagious. I am not a fan of the SEC conference but it is very dominant in College Football. You have to give respect where it is due. So in that sense I had to pick a team I could root for and it has been Alabama. Alabama has played Ohio State twice before in the 1978 Citrus Bowl & the 1995 Citrus Bowl. So there is some history there.

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI:

SOUTHERN MISS TO THE TOP--- SMTTT! This home! This is where I learn more about the game. This is where I was raised. Who else could I trust with my love of College Football?? I even dated a player from Southern Miss but that's another story. LOL! But I love the Golden Eagles even though the Conference USA doesn't get that much love in return.

So as you can see my FIRST LOVE was a bit complicated, but it all started with a whistle. College Football is a part of my life and it is the primary reason why I am returning to school to get my Master's Degree in Sports Management. So watch out now... This will lead to something!

NOW BLOW THE WHISTLE!

(MOMMA'S BLUES)




72 hours of emotions filling an empty space that doesn't know how to hold what is inside.
The pain a woman feels when she cannot be everything to everyone around her.
The hurt a woman feels from her past of those who never said, "I am sorry!"
The agony of trials and failures through her journey that she has walked bare-footed and alone.
The anger a woman acquires because she is just SICK AND TIRED OF IT ALL.
This woman has to sit in a chair, rest, eat, sleep, bath and repeat for 72 hours in a Crisis Center because she attempted to take her life. I am now on medication, doing consistent therapy and working on MYSELF!
I AM ME
I AM WOMAN
I AM BLUE

#DontStopBelieving

If you don't know what you want to do in life have you stopped believing?

It is June and I have almost completed my VISION BOARD & I asked God, "What's next?"

Then I heard the song, "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey.

This song reminds me of my childhood when my Mother or Grandmother would always tell me, "No matter how much you have accomplished and No matter how much you have been through DO NOT STOP BELIEVING!"

I used to think that if I accomplished what I wanted that I could stop believing, but I found out there is more.

There is more to life than just setting goals and acquiring wealth.

There is more to life than just existing and not really living in the moment.

Have you stopped Believing because you have gotten to a certain point??

WHELP! #DontStopBelieving

Great BOOK Alert! #mentalhealth

Now when I first met Chamique Holdsclaw she was sitting and laughing with friends. I got a chance to secretly see how she is low-key, no basketball court and with no cameras around. Her spirit is radiant and even though she tries to shy away from attention her laughter draws you in. When I first heard of her book I pre-ordered it and waited for it to hit my door step. I will not go into specific details, but TRUST me when I say that if you purchase this book you will not be disappointed.
Chamique's life and battle with depression has me looking inside of myself and seeing what I can share with the world. Stay tuned for my own book that I will birth due to the birthing of this amazing book! BREAKING THROUGH is a MUST READ!
You can purchase her book on Amazon.com and make sure you follow her on twitter @Chold1...
Thank Me Later
