For Your {Pinning} Pleasure: Father's Day Edition

Good Afternoon, Darlings! Father's Day is Sunday and there are a million and one things I would love to do for my Dad and Husband. I was looking on Pinterest trying to narrow down my options (which proved counterproductive) and found a couple of things that tugged at my heart strings. 

For those of us on a budget. Cardstock, ready.

This has been on my list for a few years now, one year it will make the cut.

              This one is for Hubs. We have made some beautiful baby girls and he is in trouble.

              I am my dad's only child and though we've had our ups and downs, this will never change. 
What are you getting the most important men in your life?

Monday Motivation

Good Afternoon, Darlings! I am feeling particularly awful today, but trying to push through at work. One year old germs are the best!!! Anyway, I hope you all feel and look better than I do!
Have a wonderful week!

Remembering a Phenomenal Woman

Good Morning Darlings. I am up this morning glued to my television watching the great Maya Angelou's home going memorial. She has always been a woman I revered and admired. Her strength and elegance is something I want to emulate. Watching the broadcast, one thing keeps being said of Dr. Angelou; she never wasted words. Every time she spoke there was a lesson to be learned. Here are a few quotes from the late Maya Angelou.   

She was a force and we lost an angel. If I could be half of what she was I will have lived a great life.

A Few Things that Made My Heart Skip a Beat

Happy Friday Darlings!!! This week has been a good one! I was in New Orleans celebrating my brother's high school graduation! I can't believe my little brother is on his way to college!! I was 13 when he was born, and him graduating just proves how old I really am!! I am extremely proud of him and can't get enough of the amazing young man he is!

Monday Motivation: Not In Vain

Good Morning Darlings! I have been dissatisfied with my job lately, but I had a friend give me some scripture and this one jumped out at me.

Darlings, wherever you are, you are there for a reason. Any dissatisfaction is the devil trying to steer you away from God's work. Whatever work you have been given, do it as unto the Lord and you will find contentment, peace, and satisfaction.

Have a Lovely Week!!!

3 Things that Made My Heart Skip a Beat

Well Darlings, it's Friday! I don't think I have any plans this weekend: no birthday parties, no travel, nothing! Welcome sweet reprieve! All in all I think it was a good week. Here are a few things that made my heart smile. 

Delicious appetizers at a new local bar.

I am not a beer drinker, but this one was good! 

My first time wearing heels for more than two hours in a very long time. Since Noelle is 10 months old, I figured it's time to get back in heels.

Have a great weekend!

Once in a While

I own tons of makeup and never wear it. In the morning I am more focused on making bottles and getting little girls off to school. But every once in a while, I will wake up with enough time to get a little fancy.

Here's what I used... in my shade of course...

Once in a While

Have a Beautiful Thursday Darlings!

Wellness Wednesday: An Apple for Dessert

A major goal of mine is to get a grasp on my eating habits. I have never been a cook and have yet to find an after work routine that includes dinner. I mean we eat dinner, but it is not a planned dinner. Usually, it is something left over from the weekend (when my husband cooks) or a bad decision from a fast food restaurant. So after a few consecutive days of eating junk, I have decided to stick to only fruits and vegetables for the rest of the week. 

I still opted for the "fast" version and threw a bag of SteamFresh veggies in the microwave, but it felt good not eating anything that had a mother stuck between two pieces of bread. 
Darlings, I have got to get a grasp on this thing. Not just for me, for my girls. My habits will become their habits, and I want them to be good ones. 

Any tips, tricks, or techniques for a healthy diet in the midst of a hectic life?

For Your {Pinning} Pleasure

Good Afternoon Darlings!!! Here are my favorite pins from the week!

My husband has to remind me that I can't do everything all the time.

The same God that created me, created this…and He thinks I am more precious!

At some point in the summer I want to learn how to do a fierce cat eye.

I will have this beverage at some point in the summer!

It has to be done Today. Tomorrow isn't promised!

Have a good one!
