my water broke.... 7 years ago today

The title pretty much says it. 7 years ago today at exactly this time my water broke and 20 hours later i was graced with an amazing daughter, ROXY! I cant believe that seven years has come and gone. That seven years ago was the last time i felt her kick inside me but, Ive been able to hold her in my arms for so long yet seems like its happened so fast. I am so blessed to have such a great daughter. Shes helpful, kind, loving, understanding and so much more! I was very scared seven years ago today but, the second I held her it made it all worth wild! I love you very much Roxy Brianna! So happy pre birthday to one of the most amazing girls I know!

The Sexy Silver Shoes

Every woman should have a pair of sexy shoes... that pair(s) of shoes that just make you feel unbelievable.


My pair are my sexy silver peep toes... Oh I love them so!


  • For starters they make me taller and at 5'4" I need all the help I can get
  • They sparkle and are glittery they make me feel like a princess and a sexy one at that lol
  • These shoes make me feel like Jen, silly as it sounds it's important to feel like yourself. I always get stuck as Roxy's mommy or Bella's mommy. It's amazing to feel like Jen sometimes too!
  • These shoes look just as good with jeans as they do my lil' black dress I wore them out with.
  • I would wear these shoes a mile up hill, just to show them off
So tell me what are your sexy shoes, clothes and/or accessories that make you feel like YOU not some one's mommy!

Sick Happens...

I had such big plans for valentines day with my girls and needless to say it didn't happen. I had to take Roxy the emergency room for 103 fever that would not go down. So instead of seeing Gnomeo and Juliet we got to see a hospital bed and a doctor. But, even sick my girl is still stunning.



She did cheer up when she got her valentines gift. A purse with monkeys on it... very fitting for my fashion diva.



Since Roxy was sick I didn't get to make it to party city for the balloons to fill Bella's Room ( going to do that on her birthday now) but, she did get a lady bug pillow pet and LOVES it! 





Now Roxy's feeling better guess who woke up sick this morning...





Me and Grady had valentines early and here is a picture of me from that night... It had been forever since I put a dress on, I even wore my gorgeous silver peep toe high heels but, those deserve a post all on there own!

i'll tell you if you promise not to tell....

Well i think my secret is safe with yall. I can't hold it in any longer I have to tell someone!!! I love surprises oh i love them soooo! But, for the life oh me when I plan something big I cant seem to keep my mouth shut!

I normally am not huge on valentines day seems just like a over rated Holiday. Someone shouldn't have a day set aside to tell people how much you care and love them. But, not this year cupid just have hit me hard (heheh) Cause, this year I am going all out of my lovies!!

Roxy and I are going out on a date. Just me and my fashion pal going to dinner and a movie. Gnomeo and Juliet... I CAN'T wait!!! I actually really wanna see this movie and most of all I wanna spend some time with my Roxy!

On Monday morning and I am going to fill Bella's room with balloons (shes in a balloon faze and LOVES balloons) I also got her a lady bug pillow pet.

Now, on to Bella's Daddy... we got him something super special. I made a hardbound photo album for him of Bella's pictures... starting with ultrasound pictures all the way to pictures of her last weekend.  Hope he loves it as much as I loved making it.


I will defiantly be updating with some pics come Tuesday! Have a great weekend!!

My Fashionista

Roxy is my girly-girly and hence why she's going to have a fashion party for her birthday in May. Which is going to include a cat walk so she and her friends can show off the rhinestone shirts there going to make. I bought black canvas bags at hobby lobby (I LOVE YOU HOBBY LOBBY AND YOUR 50% OFF) and fill them with goodies like you would get at new york fashion week (there's will include bead necklace making kits, blinged out rhinestone flip-flops, bath wash and girly pink bath puff, lip gloss, nail polish and ring pops!) I got some hounds tooth print iron-ons and am going to put each girls initial on the front and a pink bow on the side. I am really excited for her cause this is something she loves! She got a kids sewing machine for Christmas and has been sketching her own fashion ideas!

a sneek peek and few tips

I know I have been blogging few and far between but, I have busy! Busy doing things for Bella's Birthday party(and working my new job)... her theme is candy land.

Her is her demo invite* I made little changes to the actual invite such as I used ribbon and different font:
It's hard to read on purpose so you can't read the address but, the invites say: We think it would be just grand, if you helped us celebrate bella's 2nd birthday in candyland!





and the giant cotton candy i made... I got "snow blankets" (the white fluff they sell at Christmas to pout under your tree or Christmas villages) and turned it into cotton candy. I got the snow blanket for 90% off after Christmas!



I am going all out for both girls birthdays this year because, I am hoping this will be the start to my party planning business that will specialize in children's birthday party's. From invites to cakes and even cleaning up after the party. It will be a complete package. I am very excited about this!

And the very best part about planning a party in advance is... DEALS!  Knowing your theme in advance means your always on the look out and can find amazing deals!! The snow blanket for 90% off. I found candy land board games for ONE DOLLAR!!! I found candy shaped lip gloss for .10 cents, Candy shaped silly bands for a dollar a package! In the target dollar isles I found lime green and hot pink metal buckets that match the candy land theme and only cost $2.50! I also found tons of candy ornaments at target that are candys, lollipops, gum drops etc. that will also be used next year for a kids themed Christmas tree so it has double use!

Good-bye Mullet, Hello Miss. Adorable!

There once was a little girl with a mullet. It was all business in the front and party in the back for the wee tot. Her mommy hated her mullet. Her daddy loved her mullet. Her mommy took her to snip-it's and the mullet went bye-bye! Her daddy was sad. Her mommy was glad. But, they did agree they had one adorable little girl!






I must say snip-it's is well worth the cost. They have fun smelling shampoos, gave Bella a dum-dum lollipop as soon as she sat down, had an endless supply of animal crackers, had tons of toys for her to play with while we waited for her hair cut. Played her a movie while she got her hair cut (they offer video games for older kids) I have never seen her sit still and behave so well, I was so proud of her and the hair stylist there are pro's with kids! And at the end you take a lock of your hair and put it in the big prize machine and it gives you a prize!

When Roxy was little I never wanted to cut her hair she had such cute little curls. I learned my lesson the hard way! Her hair to this day at 6 still doesn't lay right and its cause I never cut her hair at a young age. Bella's dad was against me cutting it from the start! He loved her little mullet and I hated it! I want her to have long locks just like Rox (ha I rhymed) But, I want it to lay right. Also the stylist told me the more cuts you get lil girls in the beginning will help thicken up there hair, so that's good news cause, Bella's hair is very fine. So, it is a little short right now but, still enough to where I can give her the signature whale spot hair do ( high pony tail on top of her head) and lil piggy tails. And, I know I promised to show Bella's room but, the chandelier still isn't up so bare with me and as soon as I can find a ladder or a giant I will have a post for her and Roxy's room!

a big girl bed...

Bella my lil "munkey" was getting out of her crib. Before Christmas we bought her a toddler bed but, I couldn't bare to put it together. She climbed out of her crib the other night and decided it was time to let the crib go. The whole time I was putting it together I had tears. Bella is my last baby this was the last morning I would ever be able to get my baby out of her crib. I put it together and went and got her from daycare and I video taped her going into her room to see it. She LOVES IT! I am happy for her and I know she is getting bigger but, that makes me sad. I can remember bringing this 6 lb baby home from the hospital. She was so tiny in her car seat and now, its getting harder and harder to buckle Miss. Chunkers in her car seat. I am happy for her, I am so proud she's becoming such an amazing lil girl. Also, I am sad for me she is no longer my baby in two months she will be two she's a crazy, funny, lovable, happy toddler and I wouldn't want it any other way!


Here's the video, I apologize in advance for my voice sounding so crazy lol! And just pretend the Dyson isnt the 1st thing you see!

I am the proud mommy of a SMURF

I was dropping Bella off at day care this morning. She was really quite, I pulled into day care and opened Bella's door and I find my toddler BLUE. She had got into Roxy's purse which had a blue marker and colored herself blue.

sorry for the blurry pics all I had with me was my cell phone




sorry I haven't posted in a while I have been so busy since Christmas with family issues and just recovering from Christmas I still need to take down my Christmas tree today and put up Bella's toddler bed, finish painting her wall, clean house the list goes on and on. Hope everyone is having a good year so far! I will try to catch up later with all my updates over what has been happening!
