Accomplishing Dreams…..

Never give up on accomplishing your dream. No matter what happens, have some hope in your life and know that you can do ANYTHING you want to do. Today I received the best news, that my oldest daughter B will be graduating from High school next month! We have been through a lot with her throughout school years. I prayed a lot for her. God is so Good! B still has work ahead of her but, I am happy she is graduating and will be attending college at IVC in the Fall. B works part time as well. Breana, I am so proud of you. I Love you so much. B is one of my Best friends. (But I am Mommy First)….Thanks for sharing in my Proud Mom Moment….Nikki

Memories….Happy Memorial Day!!!

image

Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.Β  ~From the television show The Wonder Years

My night began with me marinating food to put on the grill in the morning. I plan to have a fun filled day with my kids. We went to the grocery store earlier today. I had last minute stuff to buy. I love holiday time. It’s a time to make more memories with my kiddos. I get real festive around the house. I turn my music on and began cooking really early in the morning. They all wake up to the smell of my food. My little helpers Buttercups and Princess will hurry shower and dress to come help me! Well I need to get some rest. But I want to Salute all of you men and women that have served and protected our country. God Bless and Have a Safe Fun Memorial Day! Peace!

Holiday Weekend Stuff…..MAC Make-Over……

Saturday morning,Β  my daughter and I went to Nordstrom’s at The South Coast Plaza for a MAC Cosmetics Summer Collection launch with makeovers. MAC was also having a sale on their mascara that you had to order ahead of time and either have them delivered home or pick up at the store that day. The sale was buy 2 and get 1 free! Of course I signed up and picked mines up after our makeover was done. I Loved their new summer colors and blushes. Yes I did purchase some of the new summer collection! My lip picks were Altered Beige, Feel My Pulse, and Soft Serenade lipglass. I loved both Blushes in Ripe for Love and Hot Nights. I loved the Strobe Liquid on. I really enjoyed myself and got to spend a little time with B. Hope everyone is having a Great Holiday Weekend so far! Thanks for stopping by….

Faith And Courage….

image

Faith and Courage is what will get you through this life. In Life by Angie Flores.

image

In life there are people that will hurt us and cause us pain, but we must learn to forgive and forget and not hold grudges. In life there are mistakes we will make, but we must learn from our wrongs and grow from them. In life there are regrets we will have to live with, but we must learn to leave the past behind and realize it is something we can’t change. In life there are people we will loose forever and can’t have back, but we must learn to let go & move on. In life there are going to be obstacles that will cause interference, but we must learn to overcome these challenges and grow stronger. In life there are fears that will hold us back from what we want, but we must learn to fight them with the courage from within. God holds our lives in his hands. He holds the key to our future. Only he knows our fate. He see’s everything and knows everything. Everything in life really does happen for a reason: “God’s Reason”.
