A Labor Day of Love

I LOVES me some holidays!

Now I don't go all out and decorate for all of them, but when I get a bigger house I might! Labor Day was last weekend and it usually is a great holiday for two reasons. 1. My mom's birthday is September 3rd and 2. One of my best friend's birthday is September 2nd.

It also reminds me of two death anniversaries. One being my oldest brother, Errick and the other being one of the loves of my life, CJ. But instead of crying and being sad I try to think positively. And show those family, friends and loved ones that are still living that I love them. And that is what I tried to do.

How do you celebrate birthdays? Is it just on that special day? Or is it an all week (or weekend) affair? Usually our celebrations last all month...and being that this is September, I'm already tired! We kicked off celebrating by going to an All White Party and we had a blast. I must have lost myself because I don't have any pictures of my crew! We were something like 20 deep and I am MAD I don't have any pictures! But I do have a few of the birthday girl!

As you can see the Tequila Divas were in the building and we WERE the party!!! When I find some pictures I am going to update this post...somebody was snapping I just have to find out who!

This just are random shots that I just so happened to appear in (Taken by the DJ)
We was WOBBLIN'!! That's me front and center!

Still Jammin!
On Miko's actual birthday, we had dinner at Pasta Fresca and then we had a surprise for her. I won a House Party Smirnoff Frigetender Party ( and decided to have her a special treat along with the Smirnoff. She had been asking me to bake cookies for weeks. She even put a post up on Facebook asking for "likes" so that I would do it. I told her if she got to 100 I would. But she didn't.

So I decided to bake some for her birthday and set up a little bar. It was super cute and the desserts were tasty! I made chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cookies with pecans and chess squares. We also had a mimosa bar. Isn't this just the cutest?!

We also had a blast with the goodies that I received for the Smirnoff Party Pack...the Frigetender masks are super creepy!

The Tequila Divas are always ready!

After all of that FUN, I had the honor of getting up at the butt crack of dawn to cook and bake all over again for my mommy. It is always a pleasure! For her, I made a Cream Cheese Pound Cake, a Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake and my Pasta Salad, only this time I used shredded chicken breast instead of pepperoni.

 My sister and brother in law cooked the bulk of the food and it was all fabulous!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
