Rainy day, coffee, and thoughts.

Good morning everyone and happy Friday. I am writing you on another very rainy day in Sacramento while sipping on my yummy warm coffee out of my very pink hello kitty coffee mug also while trying not to cough my head off (yes I am sick again and this time my body isn’t shaking it. 😯) I thought I would send you all my very warm wishes for a safe and joyful holiday.  I also wanted to share with you guys an amazing fitness app that I discovered lately it’s called pump up. ( I will insert a screen shot of it here.)

It is almost like the instagram of fitness apps but with more motivation and inspiration. It is free on the android app store and I believe also on the iPhone as well. I also have to say that I have an amazing feeling about 2015 I just recently finished my volunteer work at the agency I was at and have nothing but positive vibes and positive feelings about what’s to come. I keep repeating the quote “when one door closes, another one opens.” And I really believe that to be the case. I am very thankful for everything that agency has taught me not so much technical but within myself. 

Well I hope you all have an amazing, joyfull, and relaxing holiday. Remember the only thing that matters is family the rest is just details. Make amazing memories everyone.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Success?!?!

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday.  I know today can be hectic for many with getting ready for the coming week after a long holiday week and the pending holidays coming up, but as I was sitting down to dinner last night with my boyfriend I couldn’t help but think about something that we were talking about and that’s success. I thought about how we define success. To you what is success? Is it obtaining plenty of money? Is it power you seek? Or is it simply just watching your dreams unfold before you, bringing to life the thing you have always wanted to do? Then I sat back and thought about well what is holding back many people from obtaining their success? Is it fear of succeeding? Or a fear of failure? I really sat there and thought deep down about what was stopping me and I came to the conclusion that my fear is actually succeeding that out weights my fear of failure. I’m so afraid of how my life would change if something went right instead of wrong.
Now the only thing I can do is push past that fear and proceed further and further until that fear is eliminated. 

So my mission for everyone is to figure out what you are really afraid of whether you have already got your dream of success up and running what’s stopping you from moving it further. Then move forward don’t let your fears of success ruin what WILL be an amazing life for you.

Well I hope this helps others struggling with the same things I do, and I hope you all have a nice, relaxing, and peaceful Sunday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Happy birthday to me?

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday. So today is my birthday but I am just in a down mood I don’t know why and I wish it would go away. We are supposed to be happy on our birthdays, honoring those who gave us life and honoring that we have made it as far as we have but I just don’t feel happy. I constantly feel like I am failing at this life and how can I honor those that gave me this life when I haven’t even made the most of it thus far?

Sorry for the depressed ramblings, I just thought if I got it out I could move on from it and put it in the past.

I hope you all have an amazing, relaxing, and peaceful Saturday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Set back! 😩 :oops: :| 😓

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday.  So I just wanted to say I have been fighting my own demons on the fitness front. I have had a major set back and have just had so much on my plate that I never seem to be able to get to the gym. I have been wanting and craving the gym here lately but the end of the day comes sooner then I want, and now my allergies are bugging me like crazy. I have been so happy with my life here lately but the only thing I am not happy with is my horrible fitness and health decisions. 

Hopefully I can get to the gym today but if not I hope I can at least workout at home.

I hope you all have an amazing, relaxing, and healthy Sunday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Happy Post Halloween 🎃💀👻

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday. My life has been a whirlwind of events. I am happy to say that I have my entire family back. I can not even begin to explain how amazing that feels.  I have also started knitting I taught myself Sunday, so as of now I have 3 projects going I have started knitting a scarf for Caden, I am crocheting a pair of arm warmers for myself, and I am still working on my book. I have also snatched up a bargain from our local 99 cent store, a pair of light suede knee high high heel boots for only $2 and they are absolutely comfortable.  Last night we went out trick or treating and Caden had a blast, we noticed there weren’t very many kids out as it was raining and really cold.

Well I hope you all have a peaceful, relaxing, and fun Saturday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

What have I been up to? 🌞

Good morning everyone and happy Monday.  So I know it has been a while since I have done a blog post, but here are some of the things I have been up to. I retaught myself how to crochet (there are 2 things my mom taught me before she passed away the first one was how to write and not only how to write but to write from your heart,  but also how to crochet.) I also taught myself how to knit yesterday. (Have never been taught before.) I am still writing my book however I did take a break from it this weekend as I am a bit stuck at the moment but am hoping to get back into it today. 

Halloween is only a few days away and I have been so busy putting together trick or treat bags and still getting my son’s costume together. 

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful, blissful Monday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Review coming soon!

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you all had an amazing day. I have had such a busy day I don’t think I stopped moving once, but I do have some exciting news I got my first influenster voxbox since they remodeled their site and it was amazing. I received the clear proof acne treatment system from Mary Kay all complements of influenster to try out for free. Once I try it I will post a review and let you all know what I think. I also went to the gym today which felt amazing so I am going to go back in a little bit.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, relaxing, and peaceful Friday night.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Sunday funday!

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday! So yesterday’s trip to the pumpkin patch was a major success. Caden had so much fun and couldn’t stop talking about the tractor ride. We picked out our pumpkins and some produce from the market including a bag of the famous sweet and delicious slough house corn that I can’t wait to cook and eat.

I am also so happy that our carport is finally finished so today is going to be so busy with a ton of places to go.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, peaceful, and relaxing Sunday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Pumpkin Patch here we come.

Good morning everyone, and happy Saturday.  As I sit in the car heading to the pumpkin patch with my son in the back I can’t help but reflect back on last year when we went and how many great pictures I got. This is my absolutely favorite time of the year, the colors are just so vivid and the weather is cooler and the spirit is high.

Well I hope you all have an amazing and color filled Saturday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

T.G.I.F I am back!

So it seems like here lately I can not catch a break just as soon as my family had gotten over the horrible cold we all had we all got the flu in the same day, but I am here to say we are all better now. I have a lot planned for this weekend hopefully a trip to our local pumpkin patch with my little guy which means this mama gets to play around with her big girl camera. I have longed to do a shoot in a pumpkin patch with my big girl camera capturing my son with all the beautiful colors of fall. We haven’t been able to go anywhere because the car port where we park in our apartment complex has been out of commission for almost 2 months, but I am happy to announce that they finally started working on it this week and it should be finished by today but the cement may not be dry until tomorrow. 

Also as you all know I have been working on a children’s book, but as I work on that book I have also started an adult fiction book and am super stoked to get this one out. I have finished my outline and have started the first few pages which means I am ahead of where I thought I would be right now.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, healthy, and peaceful Friday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.
