Look At God!

Happy Sunday y'all!

I'm a person of strong faith. Sometimes I am tested and sometimes I fail. All I can do is pray for God's continued guidance and continuously seek Him, in good and bad times.

I often struggle with how much I should share with you guys...a lot of times I will write a post and then edit it before the email is sent...still fully aware that some of you may read it before I make edits. :)

Today little Boogie and I went to church for the first time. I usually never make it to Sunday School. Today was no exception, they just ran a little over the allotted time. I'm glad I caught the end. The message was "Sometimes you have to give up your right to be right to be seen as righteous in the eyes of God."

During my pregnancy I struggled with anger. I was mad at everyone. This kept everyone at a distance and now I realize that the help that I didn't get was my fault. It wasn't their fault that I was mad. I was mostly mad at myself. But during those 9 months, I found reasons to be mad at everyone, God included.

See, something happened to me that I never EVER expected. When I found out I was pregnant and told the father of my child that we were going to have a baby, his response was mean and cruel. I never would have expected this from him, but that's what I got. And that was the last time I spoke to him. I have always tried to be an honest and good hearted (is that a word? IDK). Anywho...he and I have history and I would have never expected him to just walk away but he did. This caused me to harbor a lot of anger and resentment. I'm working to move past it though...I'm still a work in progress. God ain't through with me yet!

This has been a very difficult transition, but I'm working through it and I am very thankful and grateful for the angel He allowed to escape from Heaven and come into my life.

I say all of this to get to a point...the Message from today's service was about the potter. I don't have the scriptural references with me...but basically when the potter makes a piece that is imperfect, it is broken and reworked until it is perfected. This may take many times to accomplish, but the potter NEVER gives up. I am an imperfect piece that has been broken down and right now the Master Potter is reworking me. Building me up to what He would have me to be.

I believe it to be true that God doesn't make any mistakes. So even though my situation is not what I would consider as ideal, I know there is a bigger work in progress. My circumstance IS NOT my conclusion! I continue to pray for him and that one day he will decide to take a part in our daughter's life.

I would like to give a big thanks to all of those that pray for me and Trinity and those that had and still have my back, even when I was (for lack of a better word) a bitch. Thank you guys for continuing to read and I pray God continues to bless you all as well!

I hope you all have a great week!

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 claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

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 Watery Melon scen…
