Friday morning I decided to make my way over to Del Amo mall to see the grand opening of all of their new stores. Nordstrom’s is one of my favorite stores and others. While walking through the mall I ran into my childhood friend Shoshoni, who I ended up staying with in line with many others while waiting for Nordstrom’s to open up.
They also had a beauty event that was going on earlier so it was pretty packed! The store is very upscale and beautiful! It’s huge! We couldn’t wait to go in to look around and shop. The mall also have many new stores and restaurants opening. To name a few they are Zara, Steve Madden, Lush, Kiehl’s since 1851, Cache, Bebe, Lette, Macarons, Sephora, Kate Spade, Victoria Secrets, H&M which combined two mall stores into one two story , and more that I haven’t named here. Make sure to stop by when you can!
Some stuff we looked at in different stores!

Labor day weekend started preparations for LIC’s second picnic. L.I.C which is short for Lovelies in Cali! The weather was beautiful, hot and sunny on Sunday. It was a perfect day for all of us to gather together with friends and have a lot of fun! We also had plenty of food from grilled salmon, baked potatoes, chicken, ribs, chicken links, macaroni, greens, rice, baked beans, fruits, chips and other selections. There was plenty of water, beverages, and alcohol. The music was going, spades games going up, people joking, laughing, taking pictures, selfies, hugs and great conversations! Some of us brought our kids. This was an all around awesome event, and we even met some new people who were invited. Here are some photos of our celebration
Our gatherings: Top pic from last year ( I’m not in it because I took that one) and this year!
I had a lot of fun with everyone! We always have a good time together. It was good seeing you all! ❤️

This weekend will be a busy one, as I will be enjoying it with my family, church family and friends. I will be sharing my outings with you on here! There are a lot of sales going on. Nordstroms mascara madness event is also coming this month, where you buy two mascaras and get one free from any department in the store. I always stock up at this time. My children and I will be stopping by the cemetery to visit my mom and aunt. I miss them a lot. Well wishing you all a HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Enjoy your start of the MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND!!! 🎉🎉

Over the weekend I did things with my children and also a little shopping. With the holidays approaching I’m preparing early. I can’t believe we are just a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving already. The only things my children want to know is what’s on our Thanksgiving menu and about their Christmas list that they already gave me, lol.
One of the sales I always make it to was at one of my favorite stores Nordstrom. It was their mascara madness sale! Buy two and get one free, from any makeup counter. They have it twice a year and I make sure to stock up both times. I also made a trip to Fashion Fair cosmetics counter in Macy’s. We also brought warm and fuzzy gloves, hats, and scarves getting ready for the cold weather. Since my surgery on my neck I make sure to keep scarves in all weather changes.
I had a pretty good weekend with my children. We all attended church on Sunday and also spent time with extended family.

Over this holiday weekend our crew got together with Smitty and family for a picnic. We had been having festivities all weekend from bowling to kickbacks. It’s always a good time with everyone and drama free.
Live Your Best Life
It only takes a moment
To stop and breath
To take in all the sights, and sounds
To enjoy all life has to give
Don’t take time for granted
Because it quickly slips away
Years cannot be promised
So enjoy every single day
Time and life are precious
And we only get one chance
To live life to its fullest
To live in happiness
Live your best life
Starting with today
Make sure it’s a happy one
Every step of the way
As you can see we had a blast, and there was plenty of food and drinks! It’s always a pleasure having fun and laughs with them. After all laughter is wine for the soul! We had plenty of laughs. It was good seeing everyone. I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend. I sure did. Thanks for stopping by! God Bless❤️💋
This is our first 4th of July without my dad here on earth and it is also the day my mom lost her battle to breast cancer. RIP Mom…missing you and dad.
My dad made the best, I mean Fire BBQ! He had his “secret sauce” that he taught me how to make before he passed away. Today he would usually be grilling.
Today we are celebrating the holiday and both of my parents memories with family. Lots of food, drink, fireworks and catching up with family!
You all have a safe and fun 4th of July! I can’t wait to watch the fireworks show later tonight!

The kids and I enjoyed a beautiful BBQ given by the men of COR (Christ Our Redeemer). The picnic was at Laguna Nigel Regional Park. The park is beautiful with a Lake, creeks, play areas for the kids. Ducks and Geese out with their young and walking around.
The kids played games and races. I went walking with them and snapping pictures. My kiddos knew I would be taking pictures, and a lot of them, lol. Here is some of the fun we had!
Thanks For Stopping By! Enjoy your day! ❤️💋 ** Coming Soon NHCOUTURE By Nikki**
I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday weekend. Spent time with friends and family. Wedding for family turned out fantastic! I cooked dinner on Monday, had some family time with all 5 of my children. Well my oldest is grown now and is on her own, so it’s always great to have my mini basketball team in the same place. (Lol)
