everyone's favourite questions when you're pregnant
1. was this planned?🥴 ... what kinda question!!
2. how did Kolter react?
3. how did you tell your family?
4. will you share the journey on YouTube?
LOOK. I chronicle all of it in a new video but what I really wanna talk about is the guilt. the guilt of canceling plans, falling asleep in the middle of Kolter's sentences, not being grateful at first, being annoyed that I've been working out and now I can't even see between my own legs!

I asked them how to get to Sesame Street, they told me it's been gentrified and the rent is too damn high, but the schools are good.
I said good looking out.
🍪Thanks for having us at the @peacecollective #PCxSesameStreet collaboration launch! I'm tryna teach this kid all about the greats before she even gets here. Lots of cute kids wear to represent TO and matching adult sizes so you can stunt for the gram and become influencers and save for their expensive post secondary schooling cause Doug Ford messed up OSAP again...
Check them out! #homeistoronto at Peace Collective
✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼raised in a family of women, I'm biased af.
I went back and forth on the idea of having a sex reveal with our family for m o n t h s. @shutupkolter has been tired of me and Pinterest long before this pregnancy. ♥️At the end it was a beautiful celebration that @lexi_bouchard threw for us! It brought our families together and was an excuse to drink and dance.
she may come into this world and tell me otherwise and that is completely her right. hell, she may also tell me she doesn't wanna go to church with me or doesn't wanna play mas in kiddies carnival or doesn't like fried plantain... THEN we have a problem.
but for now, I'm choosing to celebrate every milestone in peace! lol every kick, every ultrasound, every cm that my belly grows I'm meeting this complete stranger who I'm both excited and terrified by.

I am not okay 😂
I've had Mary Mary and Uncle Kirk on
R E P E A T.
to say that I've been taking Ls would be disrespectful to my endurance. I have a whole ass alphagetti soup filled Ls, F- grades and Is for incomplete.
(now my ass is craving soup 🙄)
I'm posting this cause I'm not waiting for my storm to pass before I celebrate. So bitch, I'm still smiling cause I was raised better than that and I know that God is my source. at Toronto, Ontario
This is pregnancy. Perfect lighting. Hair laid. Stilletos. I feel like this every single day.
Doubts??! Ha! Where??
I just adore the unsolicited advice that people are compelled to shell out once they see my bump.
I love hearing random horror stories about other people's labour experience, when just trying to go to the washroom.
The over saturation of ads and information on the internet make complete sense to me.
The judgey comments from other moms/to-be make me feel even more confident about my abilities!
The horror on my drs face once she read my new weight just reminds me that I can still leave people in awe.
Trying really hard to act like I'm the same person or that my mind isn't on a different planet, or that I'm not always on the verge of tears is a great test of character, and I'm passing!
This is my pregnancy. I'm here to add even more unrealistic snapshots to these mommy hashtags.

When you announced it was #skinoutseason but made the announcement far too early and ended up having a nauseous girl summer, had to cancel your trip to Grenada cause of drs orders, and had to trade in your fresh bottle of rum for prenatals. What Koffee said though...🙃 #preggobelly at King Street West
I LEFT THE HOUSE TODAAAAY!!! me! I did that! #tiff2019 at King Street West
if you ask me, it's a ting.
the Toronto remix. at Toronto, Ontario
Skinout Season is upon us.
🤸🏿♀️ at Toronto, Ontario
someone please tell Sister Denise to come and get her children.
Happy Skinout Season to you and yours!
🍹May you have unending live playlists and quality drinks (watered down wheeere?).
🤸🏿♀️May your melanin and backside pop.
May you only be surrounded by real ones and may every single moment be Instagram worthy, to the point where you're to busy living to even think about the crap on your feed.
Blessing and hot wuks all #Summer19 ✌🏿

a bestie and a husband.
I live for a 2 for 1 special. at Downtown, Toronto
mind if I do a midpoint check in?
we recently moved into one of our dream apartments and then I got to pop champagne in that damn apartment to celebrate paying off my student loans.🍾
I don't say this shit to brag nor am I going to be a dumbass and suggest 'if I can do it so can you'. Yes ofcourse you can but Shit takes time. we all have our shit. we all have different hurdles & priorities. Black women have the pink tax to pay ON TOP of the emotional AND financial burdens of the Black tax (I highly suggest looking it up if you're not familiar). Celebrate your wins based on your OWN timeline.
I struggle with imposter syndrome every single day. I struggle with accepting my hard earned wins every single day. I'm hoping that by sharing these wins I can encourage you to own up to and celebrate yours as well. .
time for your own midpoint checkin. what have been some of your wins? at Downtown, Toronto
classmates. group project teammates. roommates. travel partners. spouses. business co-owners.
(y'all thought I was gonna add parents. 😂damn schupid.) at Downtown, Toronto
WHOOO told me I was capable of maintaining a 3 photo grid. WHO??🤦🏾♀️
anyways, this is my mom.
like the damn photo so that I can move on with my life. at Toronto, Ontario
Actual ongoing conversation throughout my childhood:
mom: "The Bible tells us Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long. That means if you show me your rudeness you will die young"😐😶
I can't wait to one day put the dear of God into my own kids so that they wouldn't dare come home past 10pm...just.like.me.
My mother has taken a lot for me and a lot from me. There is no way on earth that I could ever begin to thank her for her sacrifices and her dedication but I plan to try. at Toronto City Hall
Last night my mom and I just spent a casual evening with Michelle Obama. Whatever.💁🏾♀️
My sisters and I were able to work together to surprise my mom with tickets. It is such a privilege to not only experience this with her but to also be able to spoil someone who dedicated her whole life to spoiling me (I didn't get a Lexus for my 16th birthday but I also knew that if I needed it she'd make it happen. always.)
Now I'm manifesting that we'll be repeating this next month when Aunty @Oprah is in Toronto, this time with seats that wont give her a nose bleed. at Toronto, Ontario
with legs brought to you @obfgyms at Toronto, Ontario
