If you follow me on Twitter or you’re a fan of my Facebook page, you saw that I was a panelist on HuffPost Live last night discussing “The Single Person’s Gift Registry”. (They contacted me because of this post, FYI) I had the great pleasure of discussing single gals, gift registries, weddings, and other happenings with Nancy Redd, our awesome host, and Christeena and Wendy. If you were not able to tune in, I implore you to go watch our show here. You’ll laugh, you’ll nod your head, you’ll agree, you’ll share with your friends, AND, most importantly, you’ll see my real name. 😉 I know that the show is 90% geared towards people that will never get married, but I do not claim that I am in that boat. I want to get married one day and have children (you guys know that!), but in this space and in this moment, I just happen to be single. It won’t be that way forever…(from my lips-well computer-to God’s ears)
Also, as was mentioned in the clip and my eluding it to it before, I am the current Ms. District of Columbia Exquisite 2013, and next month, I compete for the title of Ms. Exquisite International 2013. I’m excited, but slightly nervous as I have not participated in a pageant since my senior year of high school. So, I know you’re probably wondering why I’m giving you guys all of the nitty-gritty details. Well, I need your help. No, you may not know me personally, but I’ve shared some pretty deep things with you, like my dating history, my thoughts on myself, and my relationships with other important people in my life. Where you come in is that I have a fundraising goal that I am trying to meet. You can check out my webpage here and my fundraising page here. And connect with me on Facebook and Twitter! If you have a business you would like to promote, you like my writing, you think my posts are funny, you can relate to my platform, I urge you donate to my campaign. I would be FOREVER grateful!!! (Trust me!)
So, that’s what’s new in my world. There are some other things going on with the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Centennial this that I think you all should attend! 🙂 If you are in DC and looking for some things to do, I implore you to check out my “What’s Happening” page. And of course, if you have ANY questions regarding the pageant and making a donation or really anything in general, feel free to contact me. Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
