That word means so many different things to so many different people. If you read my blog you know that my husband and I have not been able to have any children. However my youngest sister Leslie "L3" is having a little boy his due date is December 28th. He is going to be our families Christmas miracle. Anyone that knows me knows my husband, sisters, parents, family and pets I love more than anything in this world. They truly mean everything to me. And my sisters are my best friends. When Leslie told me she was pregnant I can't explain the happiness that I felt it is a type of happiness I have never felt before and with it came a love that I never knew was possible. Leslie is an adult but as weird as it sounds she is still the baby and I truly think she could be 50 and she would still be the baby to me.  And the sweet baby boy how can you possibly love anyone so much that you have never met? I already love this little man so much. I can't wait to the day I finally get to see him, hold him and tell him how much his aunt loves him.

This past weekend she had her first baby shower. She received so many wonderful things here are some of the pictures.

This is my beautiful baby sister Leslie and soon to be mommy.

Tasty Tuesday

Today I am linking up with Cami for Tasty Tuesday go see her here
First Day of My Life and link up!

Today is one of my FAVORITES Spinach Dip I could eat this breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is delicious quick and easy. Here is what you need.

1 - Frozen Spinach
1- Jar Salsa
1- Cream Cheese
1 - small can of chopped olives
1- bag of shredded cheese

Thaw the spinach and soften the cream cheese. Once that is done mix all the ingredients into a bowl and stir until it is all blended. Then put into a crockpot and cook on high for about 2 hours then I usually leave it on low for about 1 hour. Grab a bag of scoop chips and dig in. See how much easier can it be? Enjoy!

Makeup Monday

Happy Monday today I want to tell you all about something that I can't live without... it is the best stuff I have EVER tried and has made all the difference in the world in my hair... the miracle called WEN.  I saw it on TV years ago and wanted to try it but never did and I did not want anything that would charge my card every month. So in March of 2010 I saw it on QVC and finally got it. My hair has always been a nightmare! Well after the first time I used it I was hooked. Not only could I see and feel a difference people would comment on how it looked and could tell I was doing something different.

These are the cleansing conditioners

Tea Tree- medium - course hair great for dry & sensitive scalps
Fig-  this is for medium to course - wavy/ curly hair it works miracles on dry hair (this is one of my favorites)
Sweet Almond Mint- Is the original and universal and can be used on all hair types.
Lavender- is for all hair types (this one smells amazing!)
Cucumber Aloe- fine to medium hair
Pomegranate- This is the newest universal (which is currently what I am using)

This is the Fall Ginger Pumpkin which is new and should be at my house hopefully sometime this week.

Everybody should try this. The only time shampoo touches my head is when I get it cut and colored and you can see the difference and I can definitely feel it. Honestly I can't get home fast enough to use my Wen.

Before I used shampoo, conditioner (which I changed every week), deep conditioning treatments, styling products, straigtening sprays and so on. If I wanted to "fix" my hair to dry and straigten it took over an hour. If I would dry my hair it would have to be straigtened or curled because it was so frizzy. Not anymore I can dry it and go. I also had to wash my hair every single day now I don't have to you don't need to.

This is one thing I will never give up because nobody else out there has ever made a product like this it is a one of a kind miracle in a bottle. To see for yourself how amazing it is you can get it from Chaz Dean Studio or QVC

My Weekend Away

So things have been pretty hectic which is truly a change I'm a very at home type of person so I'm trying to adjust (haha).  Well I am finally getting around to my weekend with Mama.
Actually it started on Friday night with "the girls" getting together as in Me, Mama, Lindsey, Leslie and McKayla. We all headed over to Mama's for a breakfast dinner (well I took my Boca but anywho)

So of course I had to take a picture of L3 with baby. How cute is she???

Saturday morning (actually it was 8th yes I'm really that behind) Mom and I left and headed out of town.  We had to stop at Starbucks since our small little town is mean and won't get one.

How yummy!!! This is my new favorite there Strawberry & Creme Frappacino once I find something I like I usually never try anything new but so glad I did!

We then spent some time shopping and just having us time! And Olive Garden for a late lunch sigh so good!

This was before we left Mama headed to a wedding and I went to eat with my in laws and my sweet niece who I don't get to see very often. Oh and if you are like I was and had never eaten at chili's oh my so good!

After her other aunt came and picked her up I went with my mother in law to Kohls I love that store! It was so good to visit and just spend some time together. I wish we could see them more often.

Sunday Mama and I went to a few stores. Yes I did shop got my first pair of jeggings and new top a cardigan and a dress. May not sound like much but for me all that is a miracle! I usually try on about 50 things and MAYBE get 1. By the time we ate lunch (to late) we were starving and we ended up going to Five Guys for lunch. The fries and veggie sandwich again so good I had never eaten there either. Sad I know.

I hope Mama and I can go away again sometime I loved just being able to spend one on one time with her it's always so many things going on and everybody going in different directions.
Needless to stay by Monday I knew I had to get back on track! Olive Garden, Starbucks, Chili's, Five Guys and of course Sunday night hubby wanted Mexican from our favorite restaurant. To much food and to much that I usually don't eat. Got back in the game though and I am finally back to counting calories like I need to do all of the time.

This weekend is L3's baby shower so you know what next weeks blog will be about!

Target Tuesday

Today I am linking up with Tara at Fabulous but Evil for Target Tuesday.

Okay so here is the thing I am total opposite of apparently 99% of women... I do not like buying shoes. There now you know don't hate me lol. There are a ton I think are adorable and I do like them but either they are to expensive (in my opinion) or they are just not comfortable. However I am trying this year with the help of L2 &L3 I am trying for a new wardrobe including shoes. Boots they say are a must  and I agree with the pants I just got (that I can't wear til I get some and I really love them) so thoughts on these? And if any of you have them are they comfortable???? I know I'm completely weird but I HAVE to be comfortable!

Wow there is so much going on right now. Seems like it's a constant roller coaster some things are finally going wonderful others not at all. Decisions need to be made and I just can't decide what to do. I am the type of person that HATES making decisions I go back and forth.  There just comes a point where when you just have to say it's time. I know it's time to make a decision I just don't know which one to make. All I do know is things can't stay like they are. You only have one shot in this life so you need to whatever is going to make you happy. I keep praying for some type of guidance maybe I'm just missing it...

do what makes you happy <3
 What will you do?       
    what you do
