Coming Out Of My Shell

I did something I thought I'd never do today...I posted a youtube video of myself. I introduced myself to the world as Mrsmorphosis in the hopes that it would persuade more people to read my blog. I find that when you know the face or voice behind someone, it makes you more likely to care enough to also read what they have to say. We shall see if my evil plan works! LOL! Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GBzEylFnU8

I feel badly about not having written in nearly a week. This past weekend was busy and the last couple of days last week were spent preparing for it.

My husband had his artist's reception on Saturday evening at the Huntington Community Center, Bowie, MD, where his art is still hanging and will be on display through the month of August. I would have liked to see more people there, but I thoroughly enjoyed the guests we did get to entertain. I didn't focus on what people thought about how I looked and instead focused on making sure that everyone present felt welcome and comfortable. It was a liberating experience for me, as it has been a while since I've been to a social gathering (I usually avoid them like the plague, even my husband's events) due to my former insecurities. I am a loving and beautiful person inside, and that part of me has been hidden for way too long because of my stinkin' thinkin'. Screw that! I'm fabulous! LOL!

At the same event, my daughter, Jada, launched her cupcake company, Epic Cakes 101. We helped her bake nearly all night on Friday and she woke up like four hours after she went to bed to continue baking. She is so dedicated to what she's doing that she inspires ME to do better with my life! Her cupcakes received rave reviews and she's already got more orders for cupcakes she'll need to deliver in the coming weeks! Please look for Epic Cakes101 on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/epiccakes101?ref=ts

My husband is an amazing artist, and can be found on Facebook as well: http://www.facebook.com/jay.blount

Well, look at me being all promotional and whatnot this evening! LOL! I need to sign off now and wash my frizzy mop.

Until next time,




  1. I had such a good time at the event. I can't wait until you guys do it again!!!! And you looked GREAT I think I told you that though

    1. Thank you! We LOVED having you girls there. I think my fave part of the night was when most of the people left and it was just you, Khaliah, Josh and me chatting it up and drinking our half frozen ginger ale! Yeah! LOL! XOXOXO
