All Hail Queen B

All Hail Queen B

The heirs to the throne have arrived.

London has the royal family, America has the Carters. Beyoncé is our queen of our world and we’re just living in it. Beyoncé broke the internet again when she gave the world the first photo of her new twins. Let me tell you, I was just minding my own business when I went on Instagram at one o’clock in the morning east coast time when Beyoncé decides that it was the best time to drop a new picture. Not just any picture but a picture of her new babies Sir and Rumi Carter. We've all been on standby waiting for a picture from Beyoncé and Jay Z but Beyoncé gets the final say. She doesn't care about our sleep so she posts this picture of the three of them surrounded by flowers and veils.

Cue the sun coming out of the clouds in the heavens and church choir singing in the background.

When I saw this, I couldn’t contain myself. I could not make any words. My level of shook was so high, I thought my appendix had burst by the sudden surprise. It’s safe to say that who whoever did the floral arrangement for this picture is now able to put her kids through college. This is a throwback to her photo back in Feburary when she announce her pregnancy.

These babies are only one month old and they are already being praised by the world. The big question everyone had was if baby Sir was already knighted in the womb.

Sir Carter Carter??

Anyway back to the photo. Can we just acknowledge that Beyonce has snapped back so fast since giving birth. She had two babies and she’s already getting back to her regular shape pre-baby. This is all natural. No spanx or corsets but all full body. She hasn’t started the go to the gym or crazy diets. This all the works of the body’s natural way of working and it’s metabolism. Does it even look like she had two babies?

She isn’t the kind of woman to submit to Hollywood’s norm of moms bouncing back into getting her pre-baby body back. That’s why we love her. She loves pizza and lemonade like the rest of us. See what I did there?

I personally can't wait to see these two babies on the next album since we get one every two years. Maybe they'll be dribbled beats like their big sister blue.

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.

I Couldn't Wait To Get Out Of My Hometown, And Now I Can't Wait To Go Back

I was just a small town girl who couldn't wait to see the world.


For the majority of my life, I have lived in a small town in northern Arizona. As I got older it seemed as if my town got smaller.

All that I could see in the town were negatives. It looked ugly, felt small and filled with terrible people. Yes, I was bullied throughout elementary, middle school and high school, but that is not the story I am here to tell.

Needless to say, I was ready to get the heck out of that town and move on to bigger and better things. I wanted to meet new people to be in new places with bigger opportunities. That is exactly what I did, and I would not change it for the world. I moved to the city of Phoenix to go to college and pursue what I am most passionate about.

For the first year that I was away from home, I wanted to stay away and never go back. I hated going back for Christmas break or visiting at any point. When people would say they were taking a trip to my hometown I would always question "Why would you want to do that? It's so ugly and there's nothing to do there" All I had towards my hometown was negative emotions and maybe even a bit of anger.

After being away for about three years now, my perspective has completely changed. I have nothing but love for my hometown, its beauty, and the sentimental value that it holds. Every time I visit, I stare at the beautiful mountains and stare at the sunsets and visit the local shops as much as humanly possible. Adventuring around my hometown whenever possible has become my new favorite thing to do.

At the end of the day, it is where I am from, where I grew up. Yes, there are bad memories, but there are also so many good ones, like dad racing the train on the way to school, or mom letting us stop for ice cream every Friday after school to celebrate the end of the week or walking around downtown with friends in high school thinking we were cool.

It is the little things that you learn to appreciate. It might take being away from something for you to truly appreciate it. It is true when people say that distance makes the heart grow fonder.

I hated my hometown for the longest time, but now I visit every chance I get. Even if I am no longer living there, it will always hold a piece of my heart.
