Freedom Friday: The Merry Christmas Edition

soul

Merry Christmas Beautiful People! :-)

I know some people were waiting to see if the world was going to end, but it didn’t so ThatKellieGirl is very happy to get back to the holidays.

This weekend is the last opportunity to do your last-minute shopping. I will be picking up a small few items for the little kids, but that’s it. I don’t do well with the mayhem of Christmas shopping.  I usually stay far, far way from it. So I will be making an early morning run to avoid any foolishness. Other than that, this weekend is shaping up very nicely.  There are some great events to check out .

You can start with Amel Larrieux at that Howard Theater and Syleena Johnson at Blue’s Alley today (12/21).   And StepAfrika! closes out this weekend at the Atlas Performing Arts Theater.

Catch some other events below!

Peace and Blessings,

ThatKellieGirl :-)
