Master Bedroom Inspiration

      When I first moved into my house, I knew I wanted my bedroom to be my sanctuary. I wanted it to be a place I never wanted to leave. I think I accomplished that feeling but now I am getting antsy.Its been 3 1/2 years and I am ready for a change.  I have always wanted an all white room, but I was always quickly reminded that you have a toddler and that would be a dumb move. Well, now my toddler is five and she sleeps in her own room. So, now maybe I can finally have the room of my dreams. I am going to keep my paint color, which is chocolate brown and I will accent in white. All white.... YES, ALL WHITE IT IS... Take a look at my bedroom and bathroom inspiration.

Opening My Heart 4 LOVE!

            In 2008, I made the decision to separate from my husband. I knew that in order for me to be HAPPY, HAVE PEACE IN MY LIFE AND LIVE A BETTER ME, I had to separate myself from him. Our divorce became final October of 2009. The feeling was bittersweet. I thought I would jump for joy, run around my house naked, or have a WILD PARTY FOR BEING FREE, but it was not like that at all. The feeling I felt was one of loss, failure and defeat. I never dreamed I would become a statistic. I just knew that I would be married until the end but things did not work out as planned. Somewhere, our lives took two different roads. I went one way and he another. Now, I am at a place in my life that I am looking and opening my heart up for love. I miss the friendship, the pillow talk and just having that special someone to call when your day is good, bad or just plain out FAB!!! As I get used to the dating scene, I know that I am a bit rusty. Dating for me, is not something I enjoy. I hate having to give my time to non-deserving men when I could be at home reading a good book or just spending time with my family. But, I do know that in order to meet that special someone I will have to date a few frogs. So, now like many other single women, I have found myself reading many books to help me with the dating game.  Steve Harvey wrote a sequel to his first book: Straight Talk, No Chaser and I must admit, I read the book in about 2 hours. I really enjoyed it. It shocked me a little because his first book: Think Like a Man, Act Like A Lady, didn't grab me as much as the sequel. The book opened my eyes to many different things and some things I knew but decided to ignore because, HELL, WE ALL THINK AT TIMES THAT WE CAN CHANGE HIM... NOT!!! So, as I travel down this road looking for love, I open my heart and mind to the possibilities... As I stood outside yesterday in the snow, I opened my arms and welcomed whatever was to come. I know one day, I will have my KING, but  until then, I guess I better keep a good tube of lipgloss!


Opening my heart and mind to all the possibilities of LOVE!!!

Not to take a detour too much from my Words of Wisdom Monday, a statement from me to YOU!!!

Taking ME BACK!!!

      Lately, I have been neglecting what I love to do and that is blog. Blogging has become my outlet and I haven't had that recently because of other extra curriculuar activities.  At the beginning of the school year, I volunteered to be one of the cheerleading coaches at my elementary school. The one thing I truly believe in, is giving back, so I thought why not give back to the students I see everyday. Along with cheerleading, I started  a mentor program for girls ages 10-16. AND..... on top of that, I am a MOMMY to a 15 year old and 5 year old. My day starts at five'oclock in the morning and most days it doesn't end until I lay my head down at 10'clock that evening or much later depending on whether I have completed my household chores. I have felt so tired lately, that I was sick for two weeks with a nagging cold that just wouldn't go away. It wasn't until I sat down today and realized that for the last 4 months I have been going non-stop... My body shut down on me, literally on Monday and I could not go to work. I layed in bed all day. I soon realized that if I didn't start taking care of me, I wouldn't be any good for my kids. So today, I am taking ME BACK!! Saturday, will be a Pamper Me day for ME... Starting with my hair all the way down to my toes... and hopefully, I can have a dinner date with a friend or two. I am NEVER GOING TO GIVE UP WHAT I ENJOY DOING BUT I WILL LEARN TO PRIORITIZE MY DAILY LIFE... I will continue to wear the Wonder Woman cape but when it comes times for me to do me, I WILL!!!!

Posh Words of Wisdom Monday!


We may not always realize that everything we do
Affects not only our lives but touches others too.
A single happy smile can always brighten up the day
For anyone who happens to be passing by your way.
And a little bit of thoughtfulness that shows someone you care
Creates a ray of sunshine for both of you to share.
Yes, every time you offer someone a helping hand,
Every time you show a friend you understand.
Every time you have a kind and gentle word to give,
You help someone to find beauty in this precious life we live.
For happiness brings happiness and loving ways bring love,
And giving is the treasure that contentment is made of.

Have a FAB WEEK!!
