While we were visiting Savannah, Georgia we were able to have lunch at
"The Olde Pink House"
This restaurant served some great southern food and STEWART'S! If you don't know about STEWART'S then you are missing out on LIFE
Anywho, The main reason why we went to the restaurant was to EAT! Yet when we were seated we were near a FAMILIAR FACE
Who is this you ask?? This is James Oglethorpe! A fellow classmate and I gushed about this man who we learned about while attending OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY!
He settled in Savannah, GA in 1733.
He helped found Georgia and his legacy is very important to us.
|Ever heard of GRIT CAKES! Yeah me neither but THEY ARE GOOD!|
|WE WERE HAPPY & FULL!|
|You know I never turn down a cupcake|
|This place is the CAMI CAKES of Savannah. A little too rich but for that day I ATE WITH NO GUILT IN SIGHT! LOL|

YES, I AM AFRICAN-AMERICAN.
I have traced my IRISH roots all the way to IRELAND and one day I will be able to visit IRELAND and learn more about my ancestors. Until then....
I will enjoy other cities with rich IRISH history and celebrate with my people! Take a look at the pictures below and enjoy what I was able to see while in Savannah, Georgia!
|The only GREEN I wore! Real IRISH folks don't need all that on|

Sometimes God places where you NEED to be
|The Saenger Theatre in Biloxi, Mississippi|
I had to go home to Hattiesburg, Mississippi and tend to some MAJOR details for the "Cocktails for a Cause" event that will be happening there on March 22nd. This particular weekend was also the debut of the stageplay "The Cost of Oil" which featured my friend of 8 years Actor David Chapman. Now David told me about this play months before they even started to rehearse for it because he knew how crazy my schedule can be sometimes.
David is that friend that never judges you but will hold up a mirror and make you look into it. He was there for me when I was going to school for 24 credit hours and working three jobs while taking care of my one year old son at the time. He saw how I sacrificed nights out and hanging with friends to be where I am today. I finished school in a year & a half at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and I had to say good bye to the GULF COAST because Atlanta, GA was waiting.
Our friendship helped me get through one of the toughest times of my life and I thank David for that. It was only fitting that I show up (even though I busted my ass right outside of the theatre trying to run into the show on time) and support him and show him that I appreciated him.
HE WAS PHENOMENAL! It shocked me how talented he is because he NEVER brags about his acting skills nor does he wine about not having quality opportunities to showcase it around the Gulf Coast area. His execution was on point. You felt the passion of his character. He was charismatic on stage and when he came out for each one of his scenes you were anxious to see what he would do next. HE CAPTIVATED THE AUDIENCE MORE THAN THE MAIN ACTORS & ACTRESSES DID! That in itself is PHENOMENAL.
|The Aunt & Uncle in this play were HILARIOUS|
|The husband who was cheating on his wife (Light-Skinned men STAY losing) LOL|
|The Best Scene (don't worry he didn't shoot)|
|After all this man did to her she still accomplished her dreams and found happiness|
|The Entire Cast|
|Actor David Chapman and his lovely Mother|
You weren't there the night He found meYou did not feel what I feltWhen he wrapped his love all around me andYou don't know the cost of the oilIn my alabaster box
