Lets Talk Lula

Alright alright alright I may be freaking out a little too hard over this outfit, but I just cannot find it in me to not get excited over how stinking awesome LuLaRoe is. First off, everybody in this world has at least heard of this clothing brand. There is definitely a reason why- the clothes are omg amazing. The material is high quality and very soft to the skin.   Pictured above  is my complete outfit. I matched a simple, Faded Glory tank from Walmart with this fabulous LuLaRoe maxi skirt along with a Chloe + Isabel necklace. This necklace is actually a three tier necklace originally, but as you can see, each piece can be worn separately which I love! I am always wearing long necklaces and have been searching for a short, cute and simple necklace like this for the longest so I am happy I found it. The necklace is gold which flows with the colors of the outfit and the little teal jewel in the middle of the necklace, gives the outfit just a whittle bit of pop. For lipstick, I am wearing Lipsense in the color Lexie Berry with Orchid Gloss. The fact that I put this on in the morning and had my shoot in the late evening, and the lipstick stayed the entire time, just amazes me. I wore some brown, summery wedges with this outfit to continue with the brown tones. These colors look so good with my skin tone *heart eye emoji* Here you can see the details in the skirt. The colors are Navy Blue and yellow. I tied the tank up that I wore over it to add some personality to it. With clothing, I love to get creative and try new things- sometimes one has to think outside the box.     Skirt background: I receive this skirt from Katlyn and Ben Morin. (Eeekk! I love when hubbies support their woman) Katlyn joined LuLaRoe in December of 2015 because she fell in love with the clothes and figured it would just be something fun to do on the side. Well, turns out, it was more than either one of them expected. Just six ...

My Heart is So Full

Oh baby baby baby, you fill mommas heart up with so much love, joy, and peace.                                           I never really knew a love like this could exist. I now understand why my parents made the decisions they did. Growing up I thought they were just being strict and were too worried about me all the time- oh, little did I know. I now have a huge appreciation for how my parents raised me- all of their love, attention, and rules. Yes, believe it or not but you will appreciate mommas rules one day.   You are two months old now. It's like you just grew overnight. You are now way more alert- staying up most of the day. (momma can finally stare into those big, bright eyes) You are even growing into your little personality and I just cannot get enough. Whenever I talk or sing to you, you talk back and that is like happiness overload for me right there. Do not even get me started on your laugh! Te-he! It is the sweetest thing ever. Your facial expressions from your smirks, rolling your eyes, and big smiles- they all give me life- in those moments I completely understand life.  I love seeing our relationship grow- from the very first time (yep, I knew I would cry at some point while writing this and now is that point) you were in my arms to now. As soon as the nurse laid you on my chest, you just snuggled on up to me as if you knew exactly where you were and had been waiting on that moment just like I had been. (time to get some tissues)   I enjoy soaking up every minute with you. I often take time to study your cute-sie fingers and toes, smell, and noises you make. One day ~ before I know  it ~ you will be all grown up. I do not want to rush this time. I want to take it all in- every new thing that you do. {I take about 100 pictures and videos a day} I am so happy to ...

Happy One Month Princess Riley Blake

Oh, my sweet darling is one month old today and I have cried literal tears about five times already! I cannot belive how fast time has flown. The crazy part is that everyone warned me about this and now it's happening. Having Riley has taught me to not dwell on the past or rush the future, but to enjoy each and every moment as it is. Each and every moment is so special. I have been flooded lessons... patience, love, and best of all, life! It has been so cool to watch a little human grow from my belly to now, and she is still growing! I have a new found appreicate, a new fire for the Lord. Oh and my prayer life?! I have never prayed so much! I am continuously thanking Him for creating her and blessing me to be her mommy all while asking the Holy Spirit to protect her.   Momma is so happy to have you baby girl. I know you're going to get sick of me crying, dressing you up in headbands, and taking billions of pictures of you but I know you'll appreicate it one day... oh! and I almost forget along with the billions of pictures, you'll also be getting a billion AND ONE* kisses *MUAH MUAH MUAH* ...

In The Moment

"Break the old pattern of present- moment denial and present- moment resistance. Make it your practice to withdraw attention from past and future whenever they are not needed. Step out of the time dimension as much as possible in everyday life." I have always been pretty self-aware about my emotions and feelings, but never aware of life itself- of each moment as it comes. Therefore, never allowing myself to experience a moment to its fullest. I recently purchased this book- Practicing the Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. Within the first couple of pages I was already in awe, realizing that I have not been letting myself fully live! I am finally understanding what has been holding me back.I'm going to be realer than real with you- I get angry. I complain. I nag. What I have recently noticed is, those feelings and actions are stemmed from bitterness. A remembrance of my past pops in my head and instead of shaking it off, I soak it up and make myself mad all over again which ends up taking away from the moment I was currently in. "All problems are illusions of the mind. Focus your attention on the now and tell me what problem you have at this moment. I am not getting an answer because it is impossible to have a problem when your attention is fully in the Now. A situation needs to be either dealt with or accepted. Why make it into a problem?" Bitterness affects not only me, but those around me. My bitterness affects my attitude, mindset, the way I talk to people- my whole vibe and energy. Who wants to be around bad energy?! I don't! I also don't want to waste my days by harshing resentment on past mistakes. Not only have I been letting bitterness affect the Now, but also the hope I have in the future- so much hope that I have been rushing time and missing out on the present. From planning a first birthday party for a one month old to being obsessed with a goal. "If you set yourself a goal and work toward it, you are using clock time. You are aware of where ...

Welp, here it is folks…

The raw truth. Riley was a surprise............... *SURPRISE*   I am a unwed, 21 one year old that does not have a college degree. Therefor, I was told numerous of times that my life is over. That I can no longer do anything... not one thing, ever again for myself. That I should just give up my dreams. When I first found out I was pregnant I was shocked- just as anyone would be, but honestly excited too! After awhile that excitement left because I started soaking in the negative thoughts people were saying. I became scared and doubtful. How it all went down: My boyfriend had a feeling I was pregnant (LOL). I didn't even think anything, but I finally listened to him and we went to get a test. The results from the pee stick popped up so fast that I thought "there must be something wrong with this thing!" So, for the second stick I had Wesley (my baby daddy haha also the love of my life. I just like calling him baby daddy) come in with me to make sure I wasn't crazy. Well, turns out I was born crazy (hey, at least I have more fun) and I was pregnant as well. The next morning we rushed over to get a test done at the doctors office to confirm and kind of figure out- what the heck do we do now? As soon as we left the office I called my parents. I was extremely nervous because I already knew what they were going to say and what I thought is exactly what they said. Broke, just lost my job, no degree, and young aka not ready to have a baby! It was like everyone was disappointed. I understand what it looked like in that moment- that there was no hope but if you want something to change, you change it. My thought was not to just sit around, eat all day, and lay around. The moment I realized I was having a baby everything changed. I got my stuff together. I found a full time job and even raised my credit score- holla! It is crazy that at one point during my pregnancy I started giving in to what people were telling me- 'maybe my life really is ...
