Don’t Drink and Drive!


Hello Darling Dears –

The 4th of July weekend starts today and I know many of you are already preparing for celebration and can’t hardly wait to get your tipsy on!

Please remember to be safe. Designate a driver who is committed to not partake in the alcoholic libations that will flow freely at the cook-out!

It is important to have fun; God knows you’ve earned it. Just remember to be safe, drink responsibly so your festivities don’t turn into someone else’s tragedy.


Love and hugs until next time ~




Never Give Up On Your Dreams


Here are a few secrets to a happy life.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot accomplish your dream. You might not get it tomorrow or even next month or next year. Stay focused and you can achieve your dream. If you happen to get off track’, dust off your britches and get right back at it!

Be persistent about what your dream. Don’t ever give up! Sometimes we lose sight of our dream to succeed, have nice things and healthy relationships! We get stuck in a rut! We start thinking, this is taking too long, I’ll never have a better job, home of my own or someone to love.

Get yourself together chile! Start working towards your dream one small step at a time. Break that thing down into small manageable pieces. Do you want a home of your own but don’t have a job and your credit is bad? First get yourself a job, take any work that is legal and puts you on the schedule at least four days a week. Bag groceries, pump gas, do whatever you have to in order to bring in a pay check.

Work hard and ask for more hours, when a management or higher position becomes available try out for it! Keep stacking your money and paying your bills on time. In the meantime keep looking for better jobs that pay more. Keep moving yourself along like this for as long as it takes. Before you know it you will have a good paying stable job and you can start cleaning up your credit history.

Keep at it and before you know it you’ll be picking out a house and sitting down at the settlement table to purchase it! Believe me, I know what I’m talking about – and your dear sweet Mimi will never steer you wrong.

Love and hugs until next time ~

Happy Father’s Day


My darling dears –

Don’t forget your dad today.  Being a good father is the most important thing a man can do. Real men not only provide for their children financially but give them all the encouragement and love they need to grow up to be stable, confident adults.

If you ever meet a broken adult I can guarantee that more than likely there was some disconnect with father in their childhood.

Take time today to make sure your father knows you appreciate all his has done for you.

Happy Father’s Day to all the deserving dad’s out there that make sure their children know they are loved!

Love and hugs until next time –





Snapping Gum – Lawd, have mercy!


My darling dears –

It is NOT  cute to snap and pop your chewing gum! You sound like a hungry animal that’s smacking and popping on a bone. Just ridiculous!! I overheard some women in their thirties snapping and popping gum like they was in a damn gum popping contest. So I say to them real nice and soft , “Ladies, it is really not very polite to snap your gum, it’s looks bad.”  Well, those hussies start talking to me about how they love to snap their gum, how it’s a stress reliever and it keeps them from going off on somebody when ever they feel all stressed out. I’ll show them going off on somebody for real if they keep sassing me!

Babies, they say ignorance is bliss but I say ignorance is when you just don’t know any better because you have not been taught.  When you rationalize your mess and make excuses, I say it’s just plain old dumb ass shit that people say and do to keep from doing the work it takes to DO better! Who the hell, do you think wants to hear you mashing and gnawing your gum all up in your mouth like that? It’s just as bad as smacking your lips when you’re eating, just plain old rude and nasty.

Let me tell you, any  BAD-MANNERED, obnoxious thing you do becomes 100 times worse when you make up an excuse for it.

How many of you agree that it is NOT  cute to snap gum!  Lawd! Don’t it just get on your very last nerve!  Please leave Mimi a comment and let me know what YOU think about snapping gum.

Successful People


All successful people hang around together. They use the Face Book and the Twitter and even got me to using it! Now a days it’s called networking and marketing. I thought I’d never live to see the day of this much technologies.

Successful people are positive thinkers and have lots of hustle in them! That’s what old folks call ambition and industrious!I love to see young people out there taking care of their business and finding creative ways of making money other than selling that mess.

Now I have to say that most successful people have a back story. It is usually that they come from some very hard times before they reach success.

Many young people today have no parents or older mentor because the crack head  generation that are in their forties have let the young folks down. Don’t get me wrong I know plenty of folks that have been clean and sober one day at at a time! Some have even made amends with their children and are encouraging them in their careers.

But this is not for you all, this is for the young folks that don’t have anyone at all to tell them that they are doing good.

You need to know that your story makes you unique, strong like a tree that withstands a hurricane and makes you who you are! The more hardships you overcome the more strong and powerful you will be! Sure you will feel down some days, hungry and cold some nights but don’t ever give up. Keep your head held high with pride because you have the guts and gumption to make it. Stay on your grind, invest and save your money you will really have something to show for it before you know it.  Believe me, your Mimi, will never steer you wrong.

Love and hugs until next time –

Bum Ass Men!


Good morning darling dears –

I have to tell it like it is. There are some bum ass men out there too!

I know I spoke on gold digging women the other day. But today I got to talk on the men.

Let me tell you something. Don’t no woman that has self-worth really have any respect for a grown man that she has to keep. Ok, well some women’s like them ladies on Sex In the City got so much money that they can buy whatever they want and they could buy them some sex if they want I suppose. They buys them some gigolo’s when they want to.  Gigolo’s, dildos it’s all the same thing. Mimi ain’t mad at em’.

I’m talking about regular hard working women that have good respectable jobs, that have scrimped and sacrificed to make ends meet. These ladies work hard for their money and don’t make much for all that they do on the job.

There was an nice quiet woman that lived across the hall from me. She must have been pretty young. She had a small child and one of her children was already  near grown and out of the house. This lady bought everything for her man out of her small paycheck. His drawers, haircut, cigarettes, beer, everything! And she paid all the bills and the rent for her small apartment.

He had either just got out the penitentiary or was just plain old trifling  whichever way it was  he was a lazy ass bum! He lounged around all day and all night long while she worked like a dog. He got up off his ass and walked her to the bus on pay day though. Grinning and talking all loud and soon as she got off work on pay day he was right there at the bus stop waiting on her too!

Women, if your husband has been in an accident or is disabled and needs your help, I am not talking to you. I’m talking about these full grown, able bodied men that lay up on women for no reason except they are trifling;  talking every day about there ain’t no kind of jobs that will pay him what he worth or its too cold to work or its too hot to work, all that gimme gimme bull shit! Haaah! I’d like to take my cane upside his raggedy head.

Ladies, get rid of that that  lazy, no good, bum ass man – he’s not worth it! Start saving your money to take yourself on a lovely cruise vacation! You’ll feel much better and you might meet someone nice.

Men get off your lazy ass and get a job, any kind of job.  Get yourself a place to stay with your own name on the paperwork because you pay the bill damn it! Stop this running from woman to woman laying  up and taking  advantage. Think about it this way. Do you want to wake up one day and realize you are 40 some years old and don’t have a damn thing to show for all the time you have been on this earth?

If you don’t give anything, you won’t get anything and you’re sure to wind up not ever having anything.

Love and hugs until next time –

Don’t Be A Gold Digga, Damn It!!


Hello my darling dears –

A pretty young lady was on the bus today talking loudly about what her man do for her. She says to her friend “girl, he gets my hair done, my nails done every thing did! He makes me keep these lashes fresh too cause he love him some long sexy eye lashes. Girl, he love me looking good, he love me looking sexy all the time!”

Now, y’all know me. Mimi don’t like to be in nobody’s business without being asked to do so. I didn’t mean no harm, but chile I musta been rolling my eyes and showing all kinds of disturbed body language because she turns right to me directly and say, “Miss Mimi, ain’t that how a man show he love you?”

Babies, I liked to fell right outta my seat!! “HELL NO!”  I say, that there ain’t nothing like no love. That sound like he trying to pay you off, buy you like a common hooker.

Ask yourself, why he feel like he got to do all that to make YOU look good to him? – aint you looking good already? Or do you let yourself go around looking so bad that he feel like he got to fix you up to be seen with you? He want you looking sexy with long eye lashes and all that so you’ll owe him!

Anyway, your own personal hygiene is your damn JOB! Ain’t no man supposed to get your hair and nails done for you, he might as well wash your ass for you! Hahh!! Am I right?

Take care of your own self baby and you will soon discover your own self worth. You’ll be really proud of your beautiful new hair do and how much YOU paid for it with your OWN money. Be ambitious, find something that you love to do and make your own money and your own accomplishments.

Ain’t a damn thing free in life but love and it don’t take nothing but being yourself and loving your own self to get it from anyone that’s worth it.

Love an hugs until the next time –
