Happy Birthday to me!
I want to first say, I’m pooped out and thats why it took me so long to write this post. Usually I’m on it but Pink Suga(my alter ego) was tired lol. The day started out sunny in Atlanta. I woke up with the sun beaming down on me, I knew it was going to be a pinktacular day!
Son with his morning birthday song
I woke up to my son standing by my bed with a stuffed toy that started singing, It’s your birthday, party like its your birthday! He then proceeded to do a lil dance for me, my son can boogy(he get it from his mama lol).My daughter made me a home made birthday card and had her whole class sign it,so cute of her.
After that I got up and the cell phone started going off with text messages from twitter and facebook. I then got on the computer and saw all the birthday shout outs via email, twitter and facebook, I felt loved!
My husband,mom, sister, mother in law,my best friend Heather from Cleveland and Lisa Wu Hartwell, all called to wish me a happy birthday! I was a happy camper!
Stephanie giving me the beatdown lol
Later my personal hairstylist Darnayle came over to do my hair and my makeup artist Stephanie Dawn. They made me look so pretty. The look that I was going for was a pinupstyle look from the 50’s. I love vintage things and wanted to do something different.
After the glam squad left, my kids were home and my daughter helped me pick out a dress. I was going to wear a black mermaid style dress but my daughter said,no mommy wear this one. She is my little helper and stylist lol.

Our first stop was to pick up my host for the evening Isoul Harris and his partner Craig Stewart. They looked great in their pink attire. We then headed over to the Four Seasons hotel where I was greeted by alot of my guest!

Everyone looked so nice in their pink attire! The Four Season staff then rolled out this pinkalicious fancy cake and everyone was in awh! Soon after, a guest named Mark Hulsey(who was a staying at the hotel) came up to me and said, “hey I will sing Happy Birthday to you”. I said,” sure thing!”

He then belted out this happy birthday song that I have never heard before! He was a small statured man, but had a very big voice! The whole Four Seasons hotel got quiet and listened to his beautiful voice! He was also wearing pink, what a great birthday gift! Everyone clapped for him and I teared up immediately, such a blessing!
