Happy Feelings/BLOG

lilcreeHey Family!! 🙂

So yesterday I went to the Home going Services of my friends mom. She lived a long time ( 79) and was the sweetest person you could ever meet. I’ve been knowing this family for over 20 years. And when I say this lady could make some mustard greens and potato salad…. ooooo weeee. The last time I saw her was when I took her and my mom to the movies. She will truly be missed.

To be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. One of my favorite Scriptures.

 Tonight I talked to my gurl about doing ANOTHER Valentines for the Homeless Sunday February 14, 2016. We are so excited about this project because since we both live in apartments, we don’t have the space to make all of the 150 dinners for Thanksgiving. People have been calling me, texting and inboxing me about it. I felt so bad because we had been doing this for years. But on Valentines Day, I’m going to make it happen. We’re packing toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, face towels, gloves,  hats, scarfs, socks, deodorant and this time FOOD. We will be putting together a nice hot meal for 50-75 Homeless people Downtown Detroit. I’ll keep you all updated and maybe you can put together something in your city. Its easy to plan and the pay off of seeing people enjoy Valentines Day with gifts and food is a wonderful feeling. Amen!

I’m so happy for my Sister… she’s finishing up her training at POLICE HEAD QUARTERS HOMICIDE… THANK YOU JESUS FOR BLESSING HER WITH THIS JOB.. THANK YOU LORD. HER PRAYERS HAS BEEN ANSWERED.THE PERFECT JOB FOR HER, BECAUSE SHE’S TOUGH AND NOTHING TO PLAY WITH! OUR PARENTS ARE SO PROUD OF HER! YES YES YES! YUP! 🙂

IMG_0784I’m still trying to help my BRIDE find her a outside venue for July. Its so hard, so I had to ask her that question, if push come to shove will she be willing to have a indoor wedding? She said yes, so hopefully after she looks at the one ( outside venue)) next week she can finally come to a conclusion so that we can get this WEDDING STARTED!

Wedding Vendors/BLOG

IMG_0315

Last night I was lying in the bed and thought back on the Wedding, and what I’ve learned so far. I found out how important the vendors are who come in to set up the cake table, linen, chairs, the decorations, and the candy table.

I arrived at the venue to find the cook in the kitchen and the linen company there to set up the tables and chairs. But as time went on, (( not to late)) I wondered where was Sherry the cupcake lady. I called her, and even though she was packing up her truck, she told me that she lost her stepfather the night before and wasn’t taking it to well along with her sister. I told her how sorry I was, and for her to take her time. We talked several more minutes, and then we hung up.

When she arrived, I opened the door for her because she had a lot to set up. When she was almost done, she said to me, you were right on time this morning when you called me. I was feeling down, and God sent you to talk to me. She said I really needed that because of what I’m going through. It made me realize that you really have to be careful of what you say to people, you never know what they’re going through. I was being my normal self, never knowing what she was going on with her. I hear of a lot of wedding planners who are bossy and plain mean. I don’t want to be that way, I want to build a relationship with these vendors so that I can work with them for future weddings. It was also a pleasure to meet the linen vendors too. As they were leaving they gave me hugs saying how pleasant and sweet I was. I’m saying to myself.. what kind of wedding planners are out there being mean?? I’ve made me some business partners and my list of vendors will continue to GROW! 🙂

Remember your personality will take you places you never dreamed of going! Thank you Jesus for that gift 🙂

BE NICE AND BE BLESSED!

Wedding Planning-Things I learned/BLOG

IMG_0512

So yes, I did a Wedding on Saturday and it was really a joy. Well worth the EXPERIENCE!  I really enjoyed myself and learned a whole lot.. about people, how important it is to communicate, and patience.

I learned early on that you have to have some tough skin doing this job dealing with lots of different personalities. Because if you don’t you’ll find yourself throwing up the DEUCE sign to your Bride and The Wedding! LOL The most important thing to ME.. IS COMMUNICATION. Sometimes I think that I am too……… DIRECT. I want to be this way, but at the same time not overwhelming. Sometimes people feel that just because they don’t have the answer to the questions that its a wrong thing. Its for you to think about it/consider it… if you don’t. Trust me the questions that I ask EARLY… will be the same ones you’ll HAVE TO face LATER.

When planning a Wedding its very important for the planner to know EVERYTHING. I don’t like being in position not knowing the answers. I want to be the BRIDES EYES AND EARS. I don’t ever want to call a Bride when she’s getting dressed to ask simple questions that I should know… unless it something that came up and I need a second opinion about it. This is why I ask a lot of questions through out the planning process. I can see so clearly the day of a Wedding. I can see the set up, the guest, the venue, I can see it all and inside of what I see, I CAN SEE TINY DETAILS that need ATTENTION.  When I feed the Homeless for Thanksgiving… we have fed up to 160 plus people. I know my vision and what I want to do. I know the menu and what all goes into a dish. For example.. If I make string beans, I want some kind of meat and potatoes ((( NO EXCEPTIONS))) to go in them. It has to be seasoned very well. I will never leave the store without these things going into my food. Now if  you are doing the cooking yourself (( paying someone )) and I know your menu I will make sure you have these things for the cook, even if its more money. We want it cooked right, no half stepping. This is YOUR NAME  and the COOKS name on the line. That was something that I learned to make sure I KNOW THE MENU.. SO THAT I CAN MAKE SURE THE BRIDE HAS PURCHASED EVERYTHING THAT IT TAKES TO GO INTO THAT DISH.

If the Bride has found vendors on her own, I want to know their names, company, and what time will they arrive at the venue. THIS IS IMPORTANT. I don’t want to open the door and look at them like……. “WHO ARE YOU?” Noooo, not La’Crease Walker. I want to have that look as if my eyes say……. ” I was expecting you!”

I have so much more to write about tomorrow. But again.. I enjoyed myself at Rana’s & Calvin’s Wedding, and I’m looking forward to Tosha and Jimel 7/16/16

Crees Ramblings/BLOG

Hey Family!!!

I guess this will be one of my rambling blogs. Yesterday morning I got up and went to the movies. My plan was to see Get Hard with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, then to go home. But after that was over, I decided to see Unfriended. I’m starting to think that no one can come up with good story lines anymore, people are just making movies just to make movies. Now Get Hard was funny, and unfriended had a great message, but we need better writers. A few weeks ago, I went to see I Believe, now that was a good movie. I’m waiting to see Avengers…. my Favorite Super Hero is The Incredible Hulk. I hope this time that he has more time on the screen.

 OMG… I cannot do anymore Bridal Showers, Weddings or Baby Showers this year, until my gurl Rana gets married in September. Those things will wear you and your wallet out!!! Not only do I work on most Saturdays when most are happening, but I cannot afford to do MEEEEEEE.. and these parties …….not this Summer. I’m apartment shopping and Cree shopping. Its my time and as a matter of fact May 1, I’m on a mission to lose 30 pounds by July 1. I have enough clothes to last me a whole summer without wearing twice that I need to get in and LOOK comfortable in. One thing I love about myself is that when I set my mind to do something it GETS DONE. So that’s my new goal for myself.

I was sitting here thinking about Tyler Perry who I LOVE dearly and how on FB you see a lot of people posting photos of their children and new babies. People post photos of their kids report cards, and school friends. They post graduation photos, grandkids, prom, dads and moms with their kids… oh yeah and the dogs. Sharing photos of your family is a wonderful feeling. Makes you feel this certain way about LIFE and the blessing that God gave you. I can only imagine how sad it must feel for him not to do that. Yes, he can he has the choice, but for whatever reason he chose not too, that’s cool too. Sometimes being a celebrity doesn’t give you the FREEDOM to appreciate publicly small things like that. I can see him now, sending photos to close family and friends, making them promise ,or sign NOTES AND DOCUMENTS not to release them to the public. SHIT that must sucks!!!! Of your own child. Ah… HELL NAW!  Wow, I cannot imagine not sharing photos of my Princess with the world, especially when I’m feeling some kinda PROUD OF HER that day. Especially doing the work that she does. I remember when he first had his baby,  the sister of his gurlfriend GB posted on Instagram * don’t know her name* how happy she was about being an aunt and some other things  that she tweeted. Next thing it was reported that she took it down. That’s messed up!! She can’t even express her LOVE publicly about this baby, because who she’s connected too. That’s must be so hard… we’re talking about a new born baby. Babies bring a certain joy to our hearts like nothing else in this world. Ahhh, I felt so bad for her during that time. As far as GB the mom, shout out to her for not sharing, DAYUM now that has got to be even harder. Women love showing off their kids. We feel special, we are proud. This is the day of social media, and YES.. IM THE QUEEN OF PRIVACY ((( trust me, you think you know me.. you have no idea ))) but not to be able to post of your first/only child has got to kill her at times.  Not sure when Tyler will post photos of his beautiful baby… but this is his LIFE -his BABY, and whenever he’s ready to share his LOVE with us.. it shall be done.
