Ya it’s Saturday. But I’m just happy that I finally am able to write at all. It’s obvious I haven’t been on here for awhile and there are plenty of good reasons why. If you are interested in what has been going on you can check it out on my shop blog here.  I just really don’t feel like writing that all up again. And also I don’t want to relive some of those feelings I had while writing it.
So now it’s time to do this confession thing.  It will be pretty random, but that’s just who I am.
♥   I can tell that I’ve been struggling hard care lately with the lack of blogging. It has also affected me in pretty much everything else.
♥   I really hate going to funerals. But at the same time I feel that it refreshes me to not take things for granted and to live each day as if it was your last.
♥   Because of this I’m determined to some things I’ve been wanting to do. Just because I want to. Like learning new languages.
♥   My plans are to study Spanish, French, and Italian.
♥   I know very random, but I have my reasons.
♥   I have also been reevaluating bigger things in my life. Like to not worry about what others thing so much anymore. I won’t lie, I hate making enemies. But sometimes no matter how much you try to make things right or how nice and giving you try to to be, sometimes those people are just plain dicks and don’t deserve YOUR friendship anyway. So really, quit forcing it. Move on to people that do care and focus on making every moment count with them instead. 
♥   Regarding my last comment, I am VERY thankful for the people that I do talk to. Everyday. You mean the world to me. I love you I love you I love you. You make everything run so much smoother and have this charm that always seems to make me smile. YOU ARE AMAZING.
♥  Also I’ve had to make some very big decisions to cut certain people out of my life.  It was difficult. If I am going to try and have a happy life, I can’t have their negativity poisoning every moment.  I can’t have them twist my every word into something bad when really it’s not like that, but they refuse to listen. I can only try so much. I can only give so much to you before I can tell it’s taking a toll on MY family life.  
♥   It’s really hard to be motivated to do anything when you have two major events happen in a row. I know that I will bounce back and I’m hoping that it will kick in soon. I can tell that in ways I’m trying to fake certain feelings, but really…….it will only get me so far.
♥   I have a lot of major changes I need to make in my life, but I’m a little overwhelmed where to start.
I can’t promise right now that I’ll be better at blogging. I’m still grieving in ways of losing two people so close together. One through cancer and one because differences in opinions has torn us apart. I think in ways I’m still in shock and numb, but I know that today I am better than where I was last week. And I know next week I’ll be better than I am today. I have a wonderful opportunity that I’m hoping will happen. And if I do I will for sure be sharing the good news. This will probably be the best news I’ve had all year.
Regarding my ankle issue, it looks like I WON’T be getting surgery. I have nerve damage that we are trying to work on in other ways. I’m also going to physical therapy and that seems to be helping. Even though I’ve only been twice.
Now it’s time to start my day. And to find the motivation to get me off of this incredibly comfy couch. Every time I try to get up it seems to suck me back in. (But then I remember I have some shopping to do and it seems to make everything easier) 😉

Goodbye for now. I hope you have a great weekend.

Ok I am finally here.  I won’t lie, I haven’t been in much of a mood to write lately because of a lot of things going on in my life that have been occupying me.  But I figured that if I force myself to write tonight maybe I can make myself get back in the writing mood all together. We’ll see how it goes.

Well tonight my brain is focused on vacations and traveling. I LOVE to travel. And we decided for our anniversary this year that we want to go to Disneyland. I’m excited because I have been very careful with saving and made sure that I was limiting myself on spending so I could put the money away to somewhere I knew would be worthwhile. We also discussed going to Hawaii in the next 2 years and taking his parents and sister and her hubs with us. I don’t have a huge bucket list, but I do know that going to Hawaii is on that list. I have always had a love for that culture and if I could be a beach bum I would. I LOVE the hibiscus flower. It’s my favorite and I love it so much that I chose to have this flower with me forever.

So for tonight I have chosen to focus on my favorite flower.

 

I am all about night lights. I am not a dark fan and I love how sweet and simple this is.   (source)

I’m hoping one day that I can get my own art room. And I actually have been wanting it beach themed with Hawaiian accents thrown in there.

I would definitely get this.   (source)

I have been wanting a necklace like this and I’m SO happy that I finally found one I really really like!  (source)

I SO wish I would have found this for my wedding! I would have gone perfect with my dress!! (source)

I love lighting. To me it’s so calming and I feel so peaceful when I have calming lights around me.
This I would definitely have. It’s pretty and I love the lights with it.  (source)

This is making me crave the beach so much. It’s been years since I’ve been and I can tell that I’m having severe withdrawals from it. And looking at all of these are giving me great ideas on more art projects. (which I have more I’ll be posting soon!!!)

I hope you all have a lovely night. Now it’s time for me to relax and snuggle with the hubs.

♥xoxo♥

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…………………………………………………

I know it’s been awhile.

Naughty naughty me.

I have a lot of making up to do which I PLAN on doing now that I have more free time. Soooooo I hope you are prepared. 🙂

So let’s just say last week mysteriously never happened. Ok???? ok……… 🙂

So my Sil and I have been talking about having a princess party this year. Like full blown Disney princess party. We both want to be Disney Princess’s and figured since neither of us are moving to California, that we should just have one here. 🙂 My daughter’s birthday is in October so we are having the princess party then. 🙂

In honor of the Disney Princesses, here are some things I found…… (be prepared….I’m doing all 10)

Snow white inspired dress……     (source)

These Cinderella shoes are perfect!  (source)

“Make it blue………make it pink!” Well, now you can have both!    (source)

I am loving this silhouette idea!!  (source)

Um, holy cow! This listing is actually for the little girls dress, but STILL! I’m planning on being belle for the Princess Party so I really need to find a dress for ME like this!!  (source)

I am loving these Jasmine earrings! (source)

This is a really creative Pocahontas hair clip! (source)

A cute take on Mulan! 🙂  (source)

I LOVE this Princess Tiana ADULT costume! It’s very well done!  (source)

Super cute Rapunzel invites! (source)

I am SO excited for our Princess party and can’t wait to share more peeks with what we are doing. We are going ALL out for this. I don’t think I will ever go as big for a princess party like we are for this. We want it as magical as possible and I think this will be as closest to Disneyland we can get in Utah. 🙂

Oh and 2 more things…………check out the Abbey Roo blog to enter in your ideas for a picture based on you! Please know that you do not need to be overly detailed or you can be as detailed as you want! But remember that you have until this Friday to get your entries in! 🙂

And last…..again as a reminder…..friends….if you are able to contribute at ALL to the lovely Kate to see her father please go here. He’s receiving a lifetime achievement award for his volunteer work advocating for children. The award is a surprise, and they’ve asked family and friends to be there to see him honored at this dinner.  I think this is WONDERFUL what he is doing and feel that this is something she should really go to. And as a friend, I want to help her out………..

Anyway, I hope you have a lovely night. I will be giving more updates on what is going on with my whole ankle situation at a later time.

Loves!

♥ xoxo ♥

I don’t talk about my dad much. It’s uncomfortable and it takes a lot for me to uncover that part of myself. I don’t think I’ve allowed anyone in my life to really know that side of me because it seems  too difficult to discuss.

Why am I bringing it up now?

Because I have this friend.  She is just……lovely….amazing……strong………..and I truly admire her.

Today she said that her dad is going to get this HUGE award and family are able to attend, but because of flight tickets, it’s hard to scramble money that fast.  But as a girl and having your father in your life, it just feels important to me to have my friend there. I will never be able to attend an award dinner for my father, or see him on another Father’s day, or have him come over and play with my children. I’ve missed out on SO much and it’s truly a sore spot on me. I just felt how important this is to her and I feel as her friends we can pull together to help her see her dad.

$500.

Yup. My goal. I figured if about 20 people donate…….oh about  give or take $20……it should help…..so….I’m trying. She’s been there for me. Always checking in on me to make sure I’m ok. I know she is going through so much more than I am, but it makes me SO grateful that she is being there for me. I want to do what I can in return.

I know you don’t know her. I highly recommend you read her blog. You will be able to feel her strength and how inspiring she really is. 

I don’t expect you to donate money especially for not knowing her. But all of my friends are so dear to me and I would do anything for them.

IF you feel in your heart that you would like to donate anything…even if it is simply $5……….I can’t even begin to tell you how AMAZING that would be. You can go here….

DONATE TO KATE

I want her to enjoy this time with her father.  I feel that this will help me get out of this depression slump I’ve been in for the last 3 months. It hasn’t been terrible, but….I still feel this will somehow help me feel better knowing she is able to cherish this time with the first real man in her life.

A major geek who also has a love for all things pinup. Totally random, but wouldn't have it any other way.
