One of my friends was recently diagnosed with a mole of her's being melanoma. If you could keep her in your thoughts and prayers it would be really thoughtful.

River Trip

We spent the last 5 days at Sting Ray Point in Deltaville, Virginia, it was so relaxing and much needed! I am so happy I got to spend time with my family, and Charley did a fabulous job with his first time swimming. :)

Pink nose!

Just swam! He was loving this vacation!

My newest Show obsession!!!

Lately I have fallen in lust with the Life Time show The Client List! It is seriously good, sometimes it can be cheesy but here are the pros and cons I have made:

-Hot guys
-Good acting
-tasteful sexual scenes
-intense plot

(FYI- Jennifer, does an excellent job in acting in this show, she honestly makes you cry, laugh and just want to possess her charm)

The show is about a mom named Riley Parks, played by Jennifer Love Hewitt, who is left by her husband Kyle Parks. She has two children and an amazing best friend and a loyal mother. The show becomes interesting when Riley decides to take up a job at a far away Massage Parlor called "The Rub" which offers some extras (each is different for each girl) for a certain "client list". Riley does this to make ends meet for her children as she see's it is her only way to make ends meet. The show get's interesting when Riley starts to see Kyle's brother Evan as a love interest and a council man seems to want to bring down the massage parlor for it's Extras. 

[This was not the best synopsis but seriously watch it! I love it!!!]

Worry less!

Some inspiration for Wednesday!

Lately I have been thinking about my sorrows and stress and how I am battling some internal darkness and I thought to myself, If I were to die tomorrow or be old and thinking of my life what would I think about how I live my life? And I thought, I would be ashamed, I have been so sad and stressed out lately and I know the answer to all of my stresses and pain and it is God, I need to give him everything I am battling and seek him- not earthly things I think will make me happy or whole. So in conclusion I am trying harder to be more happy and counting my blessings more than once a day, because after all life is way too short to be anything but happy!


[Maybe if we just lived and stopped worrying we could see that not only does stress internally kill our happiness it doesn't add years to our lives either.

Matthew 6:25-34

Last night I could not sleep so I got out my iphone and just read my bible and I chose the search method for my bible app (youversion) and said "worry". When I found worry this book and chapter came up! It totally speaks to me with what I am going through and I think it could inspire you as well. Have a blessed day.

Today I am going to dedicate my Post to the veterans and present men and women in uniform!

My pray for the fallen and present soldiers is that they stay strong in their faith, family, and hearts. I hope they know we are supporting them everyday and that they are always on our minds and that we continuously pray for their safe arrival home! Thanks for making this country so awesome!

Praise the Lord: I got my financial aid package for my last semester at ECU! I am beyond relieved. 

I am going to miss this:

Dreams & Blog Break

Hey Everyone! 

Sorry I took a little blog detour and have not blogged for quite a bit! I hope I didn't lose anyone! I have been trying to find my bubbly-ness (I know it's not a word) for a bit and I have gotten it back thanks to some TLC from my momma and talks with God. 


On to my post: DREAMS:

Funny enough I feel like I have finally found the perfect major for me as I am one semester away from graduation! How trite of me huh? Anyways I was thinking the other day how I could get involved in my community if I could not obtain a second job! I would love to do the Boys & Girls Club but i found out the closest one to me is 50 miles away. 

Then I thought maybe The Humane Society- I am giving them a call today!

 But then I got to thinking REAL broad... I discovered that my love of animals is sooooo big and I truly wish I had the guts and knowledge in the past to become a Veterinarian. I feel like the only obstacle I would have faced would have been all of the labs and math involved but now I feel mature enough and driven in life that I could have done it! I could just picture me with a little office. But if I never got the urge to go to grad school for this I know in my field of Journalism/Broadcasting I could still help out these animals without a voice! This a brilliant  random post! But I hope I inspired you a little to follow your dreams!


I am renaming my blog soon! Be on the look out for the new name!!!! :D

Many women are capable, but you surpass them all! 
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.

Where have I been?

I have been definitely not in the mood to blog lately sorry! I purchased a schnoodle puppy for charley to have as a brother and it did not go over well with my parents or my boyfriend. I had to make he hardest choice ever and take him back to the breeder and the. Choice has been haunting me ever since. Anyone who knows me...knows that animals especially dogs always have a soft spot in my heart, when I took that baby back to the breeder it broke my heart, he is 16 weeks old if y'all know anyone who'd want him let me know here are a few picture of him.

I think mentally I have been drained

Linking up today for TOP 5 tuesday!

Today I am linking up with Rachel @ Just Peachy Blog


1.Hats! Always wear hats in the summer sun to prevent wrinkles and brassy toned hair!
I love my ECU baseball hats for the pool 

This little beach get up is adorable!

2. Lip balms! To keep those lips moisturized and sun burn free!
Beauty tip: tanned lips may look good by they reduce collagen in your lips causing them to look thin.

These lip balms are perfect!!! Called Color Riche by L'Oreal  I love the nudesy ones!

This little lip balm is tinted and so moisturizing...as you can see I only posted tinted ones because I really love a color lip even a tint on a pretty pout!

3. Sun Screen & Tanning oil
This is the best body sun screen ever it is water resistant and anti-aging and smells like heaven!

This is a brand called Alba and it is amazing for facial sun screen, non oily and smells nice! It's meant for sensitive skin! Its a spf 10 because I usually wear a hat so I don't need much!

I only use a dry oil like this one and Banana Boat is my go to body oil company! 15 spf is the best because I am not trying to fry!

4. bikinis: ONLY from Victoria's Secret
I have been working out a lot so I have lost some weight in the boobage area unfortunately but I rather fit into my jeans than a bigger bra! haha! I love these Victoria's Secret push up halter tops they give a nice lift and come in such fun colors!

I own this one as well (different color) but its just so flirty and fun!


I am only posting this drink because I am dedicating it to my summer or deeming it my "SUMMER COCKTAIL" I love this and its so easy to make:
BEHOLD: The Cherry Gin and Tonic 

What are your top 5 SUMMER things! :D

Have a Fabulous day!!!!

A Blogger I am Really Inspired by:

Usually I will try to be creative or I just give up and give you a boring post..But today I was looking through my favorite blogs and just got inspired and God laid on my heart to blog about a particular blogger today!

Meet Jessah @ Dreaming Of Dimples

She is gorgeous!

 She is a blogger who blogs about Infertility and her daily life  and it's super inspiring and a woman empowering blog! I love her blog and she is just such a ambitious and determined woman especially when it comes to Infertility.

I learned from her blog today that last week is NIAW- or National Infertility Awareness Week
I know I am late but I still think her blog should be checked out and women everywhere should be interested in this topic whether you are fertile or infertile we as women need to keep each other informed and be there for each other!

Find her link to this post HERE

So go check out her blog and see how inspiring she is and how
 empowering her and her husband's battle with infertility is! 

Thank you Jessah for inspiring me! XOXO

Studying the Bible:

I have been reading this book by Renee Swope...find her website here, it is so good! I can hardly put it down, it has a ton of bible verses to go along with the book and just gets you in a deep face to face conversation with God, I am so glad I purchased this book--I got mine from Amazon for just $6. It's definitely a book I will be passing along.

This is what one of my bibles looks like- it has been such an amazing portable library of God's word. I would like to get a pocket book size bible that clasp shut so the delicate pages do not wrinkle. I have been studying by myself the book Philippians lately particularly 4. 
The verse that has hit my heart hard lately is 

Philip. 4: 6-7 
"Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he's done. Then you will experience God's peace which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus" 

What Bible verses are touching your heart, mind, and soul lately?

My Fitness Inspiration:

My Fitness Inspiration for the Summer and After:

Jessica Biel is pretty much the inspiration for my workouts her body is phenomenal and she is strong as in she muscle builds a lot not just to look like a waif in Hollywood!

I would love by the middle of the summer to wear my brazilian cut bikini and feel fabulous in it!

I have always wanted a tight and toned stomach which is the hardest part for me and most women to obtain due to hormones and craving but I am going to go ab work out crazy!

I want clear and healthy skin, I am inspired in the idea that lots of water and working out which causes sweat that gets out those impurities will leave me with glowing skin!

I want to be so happy when I work out I want to thrive in my workouts and enjoy them!

I am so not guilty of this...I'll be like "Oh I didn't eat bad all week time to go crazy!!!!" NOPE! Not anymore! I will not give in to my emotions and eat to eat!

Last inspiration I want to buy a light pair of 27 jean skinnies and feel great in them and not like i am suffocating! My happy weight is 130 and size 27 jeans so I am pushing for this goal for the summer!!!

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
