The other day i was thinking about how I have some great people I can actually call
And Now that I say that out loud,
it sounds pretty ridiculous,
But I’m serious, back in high school and/or college, THAT was the best part of moving away from home or starting a new semester,
It always came with new people, new hang-outs, new taste!
And one daughter and 25 pounds later (if we're measuring in years, it would be 3.)
I now consider Word with Friends,
and sitting behind Facebook
Before I had my daughter, I read books from A-Z on New moms ending up with depression..
After having their baby and
"Howww is that possible?!"
After that day,
how I wish i NEVER wondered!!
Long story short, I never understood the whole depression and
… . until … . I had … . my daughter.
The exhaustion and anxiety just crowding!
And I feel like I'm getting off subject,
So the whole uncontrollable hormonable new momable was a HUGE help disconnecting from
(friends, family and social media)
Now that we have the background down,
I'm going to start off again with
Me + No Friends = Intervention ASAP
I started out thinking,
how EASY it was to make them and I thought
"What the heck was I doing without these ladies?!"
They were like free working psychiatrists!
My social life was on a high and I KNEW Hubs would be happier to know there was no more
"Teen Mom" or "Basketball Wives" anywhere in sight for him.
Because, I had some friends now,
to watch them with.
Unfortunately, some fun lasts so long and I started to notice how
I was so used to being alone,
having a routine going,
and just browse without having any shame shopping in the clearance isle.
So I had to re-evaluate the "Friend List"
And when I discovered i was so drunk with power
I felt like, Wow I could be on
"America's Next Top Black-List"!
I realized I only needed one friend and focus on being
Me = Not-FAKE!
and let my guard down a little.
Because seeing that struggle we're ALL going through helps others settle in that comfy zone.
and doesn't exist.)
At that point,
I saw The Light!
8 months later,
I have my best friend I get to sleep with Forever, and ever!!
Who also LOVE's those Teen Mom episodes! ;))
A daughter I can speak through if Daddy is EVER on a "No" high.
And Good Friends I can count on to help me WHENEVER i need that extra hand without asking.
I'm a MOM!
And When I'm acting like I need a Million and two friends to be happy
I might be my own person I want to
kick in the taco after a high-five in the face.
But it's our job to make sure we're fulfilling our duties to look like the
Everyday We think about, How to be a :
Wife, Nurturer, Teacher, Nurse, Housekeeper, Accountant, etc. ect.
The list has no end
But It's definietly a calling
And those extra people we can add into our Lives is a Plus ;)
Don't carry a Million Bucks to make friends
Just be Beautiful!
So I know yesterday was our BiG day to do our New Tuesday Tutorials,
And I think We were jinxed because EVERYTHING we did, did NOT come out!
Our Pictures for Pictorials
and our Film for YouTube
And ALL DAY YESTERDAY WAS one of those Guilty days!
Next Tuesday Fo'Sho, we will have something up !!
For Now, we improvised and came up with a Blooper #1

Hello New Week!!
Hello Beautiful People!
It's seriously been a ROLLER COASTER these past couple weeks!
First it's crazy busy, the next day I'm bored out of my mind and it just goes up... .then down.
But I think I found its pace and I'm SUPER DUPER happy with everything new that has come!
-My New Make-Up GiRLiE-
-My VERY 1st GiVEAWAY!-
-Road Trip without Hubs-
-Sissy and her new business-
Oh and My cousin sister moving far, far way
And still "trying" to be Happy about it
(I googled where she's moving.. . .its approximately 1,240 miles!!!!)
AND that's what I need to relieve today
So this is how it happened... .
I'm walking through WalMart with my nephew, of course he's making laps while I'm making my way down the first isle.
Through the balloon section, I'm saying " Bye Tristen, Luv u"
and out of nowhere I hear " Bye Jesika" (grown womans voice)
After my doubletakes I'm SHOCKED to see my cousin sister Shantanna standing there,
looking sooo beautiful!!
(She lives about an hour and a half away from where I live and I haven't seen her since last year 2012. )
.. .After catching up and holding up Cart Traffic she ends our conversation with, her pretty much starting a new chapter in her life and moving off and away from the "Rez" (Navajo reservation) life.
At that point, I have a million feelings stirring up:
like, why?! ... . Do you have a place to stay?
Jobs?? .. . .What does your mom think? ANd Will you be going with your family??!
(Side Note: I'm giving ZERO positive feedback)
I have to say, after seeing her expression i start to feel her indecisiveness.
Then MY Guilt ruptures out of my anger/worriness and I stop..
"OMG, I'm so sorry, your'e so happy, you're taking that chance that's given to you now to GET OUT!, and I'm ruining it for you"
After a couple minutes I gather myself and think, we grew up togwther and she was someone I wanted to be my entire childhood growing up!
She was beautiful
Everyone wanted to be within her company
She was spontaneous
Everything she was, I wanted to be
And of course, as we grew older, we grew apart.
I'll admit I was angry,
not only at her, but at myself.
"Why didn't I visit her often"
She was only 120+ miles away and now she's 1,000++++ miles away!!
That was last week on Tuesday and one week later I'm still trying to figure out why I just said
"Okay, I hope you have fun"
I just walked away.
So today, I'm going to imagine my power of REWiNDiNG LiFE
I'd definitely be every Happy synonym in the book.
This is exactly her!
It took a simple couple of minutes to close my eyes, and open my heart to pray and see
She motivates me to move on, be happy, and expect the unexpected to always be a lesson and always be positive.
Good Morning to you!
And Thank you so much for all your feedback lately!

For quite sometime I've started a TON of different projects .
With that extra motivation with the New Year, I've decided to get organized!
So lately, I've been on Pinterest for ideas and other D.I.Y. Blogs.
And OMG, it can get a little overwhelming,
... . .
They always have that PERFECT lighting,
And EVERYTHING is always in it's place.
Our home is almost a year old, but I can't get my head around, that
"It's okay to buy furniture and a little mess DOES happen! "
it's been a couple months and My "Gold" has organized itself
.. . in bags ..
in the corner...
by the dirty LAUNDRY!
We have a Ridiculous Sized Bed, i mean RiDiC!!!
ohh and a husband who HATE's a bed that sit's against the wall.
With that said, I'm literally Wordless/Speechless/ (every other -less word)
About this Corner.
But lets not dwell over it ;)
