It's been awhile

Wow... So how has everyone been?? It sure has been some time since I blogged! I honestly didn't think I'd start blogging again. I kind of lost interest back  in January and didn't have much intentions on returning. I would occasionally visit some of the blogs I follow but then life happened. I met a boy and began working full time and well, I didn't make time to blog. But lately I've missed it! Plus I've gone through sooo many life changes since my last post I definitely wanna catch everyone up. So be looking for more posts soon and a complete blog makeover!

2 Years Gone- NEVER Forgotten

Tuesday was very bittersweet. It marked 2 years ago to the  day, the most important person in my entire world was called home. God had a much better place for her to spend her days. It was beyond hard to grasp the fact that I would never see her face again (in person that is); never hear her blasting Whitney Houston [RIP!!] or gospel music at the crack of dawn; wouldn't have her next to me week after week as we stayed up to watch Criminal Minds or CSI: NY. She's no longer here to laugh with or to fight over the phone when we both wanted to talk to my brother's daughter. Never again would I get to hear the words "I love you Nicole".

I will admit that I'm in much more of a positive place than I was last year and the year before. I'm gotten closer to God and I know that He does everything with a purpose. He has already mapped out the plan for my life. Although I've had a great amount of anxiety the last few days I think as the days pass I'll be better. The road of grieving and learning to live without my mother will indeed be a long one, but with God I know I will be able to handle it.

PSALM 30:5 -
"For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime, weaping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning."

{Sunday Social}

Hello ladies and Happy Sunday!! It's my hope that you all are doing well! During December I was totally slacking on my posts due to my surgery. I'm getting back into full swing now! If you're not familiar with the Sunday Social link-up -- get with it!!!

Sunday Social

This weeks questions
1. Do you plan to change any of your eating habits in the new year? No. I changed my eating habits drastically back in 2011 and I've done pretty well sticking to those good habits. In 2013 I simply want to improve the healthy path I am currently on; after all it wont hurt to add more/new fruits and veggies to my diet!

2. Any workout tips to get us back in shape after the Holidays? Oh gosh, I haven't worked out in months! I definitely want to get back into walking more and take a few yoga or zumba classes this year. Zumba is super fun and doubles as a great workout!!

3. Favorite thing you did over the Holidays? Didn't get depressed?.... In years past I would always get so sad and emotional during December, and more so now that my mom has passed. However,  this year I was okay. Although I'm away from all my family and I stay inside on Christmas Say [watched the Lakers game though!] i was really content with how things were. That's all due to God's grace!

4. What is something you hope that you accomplish in 2013 that you did not in 2012?
See more of what Seattle has to offer. Become more social with co-workers and church friends. I feel like after 5 months I'm getting much more adjusted with living in Seattle and now is the perfect time to  mingle with people and see all that I can!

5. Name 3 things happening this year you are excited about and why:
I don't have too many any plans for the rest of the year mapped out  yet, but here are some things I'd like to do this year.

1. Spend a weekend with my Aunt in Mississippi
2. Visit my cousin and her soon-to-be-born baby girl in Atlanta
3. Do a Breast Cancer walk/run!

if you join the link-up, let me know and I'll check out your post!!

Until next time....

Friday's Letters

I've seen these types of posts on tons of blogs that I read and decided to give it a try.=)


Dear 2012, you sure were filled with A LOT of ups and downs, but thanks for all the lessons; I paid attention!

Dear NYE,  I truly enjoyed the fireworks display. However. hunting for food at 2am not so much fun =(

Dear New Job,  I love you! I love knowing that I'm finally putting my degree to good use and get to spend my day with a bunch of adorable, stubborn, snooty noised toddler and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Dear Seattle Winter,  Although I really appreciated the snow 2 weeks ago, I do not like you! Nor do I like the fact that it was 28 degrees the other morning as I ventured off to my new job...

Dear potential "boo",  ::sigh:: I sure hope this thing works out because I'm actually starting to like you. =)

Dear Pinterest, I promise we will get a lot more acquainted this year. I WILL tackle many of those yummy recipes I see every time I log on.

Dear 2013 I'm ready for whatever you throw my way! BRING IT!

New Blog Hop/ Link-Ups

Hello ladies! As usual I've been discovering a lot of new blogs and even more link-up! Here are two tat I have recently found. Check them out!!


Wednesday, January 2, 2013


Hello ladies! I surly hope you all had a fantastic NYE!

I usually stay inside with friends and watch the countdown specials. That's been my personal tradition since I was like  13 LOL. This year however, I had plans. I met up with a friend and we watched the fireworks display at the Seattle Space Needle then drove around looking for food {which was no easy task!]. All in all my NYE was amazing and I'm excited for the year ahead.

I do not plan on making resolutions and feeling pressured to accomplish things when life gets in the way. So I've decided to slowly work on things about myself that i KNOW need changing. With that being said some of the area I shall try to improve this year include:
  • Building a closer relationship to God - So far I feel as though I've been doing better. Reading my bible for understanding not just when the minister reads a scripture on Sundays. I'm in the works of getting involved at the church I've been attending, helping with the youth, hanging out with the young adults, making friends
  • FINISH reading books once I start them- I have a HORRIBLE habit of getting a book, start reading it and for whatever reason I get bored with the book and never finish! Its kinda sad that my attention span is so short sometimes.
  • Wear heels!! - A lot of the time I get stuck in a comfort zone of work uniform and flat shoes. But I want/need to dress more. Plus with it being so cold in Seattle, boots/heels/wedges will keep my feet a lot warmer than flats!
** Now for the fun part! **

Below I've added the Fireworks show from NYE! I loves it!! Talk with you ladies soon!
{ps- please disregard the random conversation in the background between myself and my friend... hahaha}
