stadium status … BALLIN’ OUTTA CONTROL !

When I found out my boys were ballin like it was still ’04, I had to see in person. 

So ZANEB & I went to the Prudential Center to watch the final game of the New York Knicks Corporate league. JOSH and JOEY were playing for BNP Paribas. MAJOR!

— before I knew who they played for, I was thinking of wearing my Knicks tee. Should’ve … should’ve bought Click with me, too but didn’t think they would let her in the stadium. next time, because there will be a next time — 

we were just being silly “say heyyy”

& then the legend walked in … Walt “Clyde” Frazier

S/O to the champions in our eyes for a good game ( so close, 2pts!) 

they got laced. 

” it aint Spalding “ – name the movie

Beach day at The Hamptons ?

” I’m into it ! ” — #ATEAM

After POSEY & I spent 3 hours in the car trying to get out of the city, we found ourselves in Southampton. If I didn’t know any better you would think we arrived on some land far, far away — not Long Island. 

It was definitely a scorching day but everything that the doctor prescribed!

White sand. Semi-blue water. We were ready for fun in the sun!

POSEY is too funny ! She had me cracking up all day !

I’ll have to ask her again, but we named her style — something like futuristic vintage. Whatever it was, it described her to the tee. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. No white doves.

POSEY showing off her henna tattoo that she got on set. I can not wait until this movie comes out. Love supporting my friends do big things!  Remember the names, people. I’m telling you. {#cockypost}

It’s unreal how many pictures we took — photo shoots are life. 

Hamptonites were all over the beach — we were squirrells just tryna get a nut. 

The effortless chic style was everything I expected. Diva’d out in the dimest way. Just cause. Okayyy … 

s/o to POSEY for all of these great shots of me. Toot-toot ? 

That girl good.

Love the homie. Can’t believe she wore that hoodie on the beach. I was dying looking at her. For the love of fashion!

Poor trail mix didn’t stand a chance. Those M&M’s were melting in your mouth, in your hand, in the sand.

I swapped out my beloved Ray Bans for my hottie tottie Tom Ford’s. 

Just for the day.

I don’t know how many hours we were out there but the sun will drain you. Being hours away from home, tired, drenched in sand, hoping for tan lines, and having to get home for a barbeque .. POSEY & I had to say farewell to Southampton for the time being to head back to Jersey. Bittersweet but SO happy we got out for the day. Far enough to feel like a getaway but close enough to make it over and over again …

Trust — it’s goin down (meet me in the .. )

nothing better than a sunset to end a perfect day.

Sunday is the new Saturday.

Sunday, July 10, 2011 — Since we were out all Saturday night, when we got back to The City Sunday afternoon, brunch was the only thing on our biscuits. Too bad we took too long to leave the house, missing out on church and brunch but it’s never too late for bbq — so we took our festivities to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que for a Sunday feast. I’m sure it was nothing like the last supper but it definitely left us satisfied. All hail the southern delectable gods !

I had to, tehehehe. 

And then on the way home, Posey and I had a mini photo shoot on 125th St. 

it’s the moments that you can’t relive, even if you tried … that’s what i live for.
we sealed the day with a stroll in the neighborhood, setting our eyes on Harlem-nites galore and our taste buds on local cupcakes. Mmm … Red Velvet, please ?

risk takers we break the rules — gets so dark, but I see good .

I can’t begin to name all of the perks there are living so close to The City … but I can name one. VISITORS! Seems like every other weekend, friends are “coming to town”. I love it — and the other (Saturday, July 9th) weekend was no different. The best part was, this time, we actually got a chance to get out of the city. 

Depending on where you are Brooklyn is right out of Manhattan .. but BOY is it a world of a difference ! 

We spent most of the night just hanging out, threw a few beers back with our Virginia boys, and reminisced on the good ol days. Seems like we’ve been doing that more than often aka “we’re getting old”. Nevertheless, these are the kinda of visits to love! Can’t wait for more like them .. 

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you.

All of these pictures were taken on the same night ( – all photographed by Ashley Posey – ) the night just carried over to the next day. We got back to The City at Noon. No complaints :) It was another great weekend in the books!

ROAD TRIP : Houston to Dallas

Something that I have always wanted to do was take a road trip with my best. And fortunately, I have another to be checked off my bucket list. Although it was only a 4 hour drive and we wound up in the same state, vibing out to OOh on the TLC Tip and college favs …

… will always remain a vivid memory of mine.

Love you, Wad! 

Only to show up and surprise our friend, Rica for her 25th birthday. I could lie and tell you she was coming down from a high from skydiving, but that ugly cry is due to her not knowing I would be in town. Her mom helped us keep the secret from her for damn near a MONTH! WOO. Glad we pulled hat one off, it was close to not happening … a few times! LOL

Hope you had a happy birthday, Rica !

The Grove, Houston.

I know by the looks of things, seems like all I did was eat in Houston. I promise you we did so much more ! I’m telling you food in the South is worth mentioning. Deliciousness at its finest ! The Grove was no different. 

Even the drinks were bangin. At first I ordered my usual glass of Sauvignon Blanc but after I saw Jade’s Champagne Mango Cosmo, I had to try one of my own!

Anyone notice the difference between MY Champagne Mango Cosmo and Jade’s Champagne Mango Cosmo?

The Grove served me The Set Up ..! Deelish, and kickin’, if you know what I mean. 

the Grilled Chicken Breast topped with Lemon Yogurt, with a Ceasar salad instead of the Ancient Grain. SUPERB!

the Hand Rolled Fettuccine, Baby Scallops, and Summer Corn. 

let’s not forget Jade’s Mango Sorbet (that melted but she doesn’t want to admit it. its ok.)

The Grove Restaurant

The Breakfast Klub, Houston.

Knowing what kind of day was ahead of us, a slammin breakfast was in order! And from the moment Jade knew I was coming to H-town, she has been talking me up about this The Breakfast Klub spot. When I say we got there JUST in time, we got there JUST in time to get online, under the shade and watch the line start to form and wrap around the parking lot. 

Really? Was the food going to live up to all of the hype ??

Was standing in line, in Houston heat, for that long about to be worth it?

LAWD YES!!

I order the French toast and chicken wings. Jade ordered the chicken wings and waffles. 

Can you say happy campers?

The food was amazing! The staff was incredibly hospitable. & the hype… WORTH IT!

It was the 90 degree heat that has our faces looking like that. Unplanned, might I add.
