The Struggle Is Real.

Hi guys! Thanks for hanging out with me today.

Let me just dive right in and say this… Today is January 25th, 2020 and I decided that I wanted to take a trip to Beans and Butter Coffee House. After getting off work this morning I came home and cleared off the bed in the spare bedroom, so I could watch some t.v since the television in my room is currently being repaired.

After getting everything squared away I hopped in the shower and spent probably an hour, of course, Indulging in my hot water and body wash. Anyway, after I was done I seriously had a hard time trying to figure out what to wear. I wanted to put on a really cute outfit today and feel like a real girly girl. Some days you just want to look and feel cute.

Well, today is that day for me. I feel like I need a whole new wardrobe. I had the hardest time picking something out to wear. I knew I wanted to wear jeans with a sweater. The sweater I wanted to wear has an oversized turtle neck that you can pull down over your shoulders. My only problem was that it was a short sleeve sweater and I didn’t have a thin solid long sleeve black shirt to go underneath. I wanted to make sure that I dressed warmly because it’s cold out today.

I managed to find a white shirt with an oversized turtle neck but not one that you can pull down over your shoulders. I now had to find a sweater to go over my shirt because it was thin. I ended up pulling out this old sweater from years ago. I don’t even remember the last time I wore this before today. I mean, I was seriously struggling to try to find something to wear. Trying stuff on and taking stuff off. It took me forever to get dressed and decide on what shoes to wear.

All because I want to look and feel cute today. Sometimes when I’m in this mood and can’t get the look right, I just say forget it and throw on my usual, jeans and a t-shirt with my fleece and a pair of sneakers. Today I even put on some eyeshadow, yay me. I like makeup but I never put on a full face unless it’s some type of event or special occasion. Give me some eyeshadow and lipstick and I’m good. Side note, I don’t mind putting the makeup on, I just hate having to take it off.

Although I wasn’t completely in love with my look today. At some point, I was completely over it and just ready to go get my coffee.

I did feel like I achieved my girly-girl look and feel for the day, but sometimes the struggle is real.

How Good Are You At Reading Signs?

How good are you at reading signs? I’m not talking about picking up a newspaper and reading your horoscope. Nope not at all, I’m talking about being present and in tune with your surroundings, your world.

I’d like to think that I’m in tune with the earth, air, fire, and water. This image at the top of my blog post actually sparked this post I’m writing right now. Over the last few days, I’ve been working on my vision board and I’ve already started to see things manifesting.

We all have things we want to do and the way we go about them isn’t always the way we envision. I’m realizing that we have to be mindful of the roads we take to get to where we are going but also realize that the path we take is necessary in order to achieve that goal sitting in the distance.

Sometimes you have to be able to see or read the signs, as they come your way. With starting my vision board I’m trying to be as open and positive as possible. All things happen for a reason, do you believe that? Cause I do.

I’ve definitely seen the signs before, and when it usually happens it’s me asking a question to the universe or God. Granted I don’t always see the signs in front of me, but I am working towards that by keeping an open mind, paying close attention and listening carefully for the answers I seek. It’s really amazing when you start receiving these signs. If it’s never happened to you, you might feel like this is impossible. I’m here to tell you that it’s not.

Give it a try and see what happens. Just remember to be open to the signs you receive. If you’re not going to open then don’t even waste your time; then turn around and expect to receive a sign.

How good are you at reading signs? I’d love to know. Sound off in the comments below.

Sunday Was A Good Day.

Hi guys! Thanks for hanging out with me.

Last weekend was the first weekend of 2020. My family and I went to breakfast on Sunday at First Watch. Our first trip to First Watch in 2020. I originally planned to go alone but decided to wait for the hubby to wake up and see if he wanted to go. I didn’t want to chance it and go, then find out that he would have enjoyed going as well.

If I’m going to be dining at First Watch, then I like to get there when they open, because on the weekend it gets really crowded. By the time we left the house, it was around 11:00 a.m., and by the time we got there and gave them our name we had an hour wait time to be seated. We left and ran some errands to pass the time and then came back. Actually, we timed everything perfectly. We went to Sam’s Club and picked up a few things and by the time we were done and headed back to the restaurant and took a seat. They paged us that our table was ready. I really enjoyed breakfast. I tried something different from the menu and it was delicious. I had the Tri-Fecta which was French toast with fresh berries and bananas with a strawberry compote, turkey sausage, and scrambled eggs. Not to mention I washed it all down with several cups of coffee and my favorite the Kale 🥬 tonic.

After breakfast, we made another pit stop at Micheals craft store to purchase a few picture frames for the hubby for some of his photography. Once we were done we dropped everything off at home and went to Vine Gardens. My husband recently bought a new camera and he wanted to take some pictures. Of course, I opted to be his model. I felt like I was in my 20’s again. Doing things as if I still had a 20 yr old body. Lol 😆 Needless to say that I sure paid for it the next day. I really felt the sore mussels that I didn’t take the time to stretch out properly. At the moment, I was all in my glory. When I was younger I worked on assembling a portfolio because I really wanted to be a model; even if I didn’t have the height for it. That day and moment brought back that feeling for me. It was a chilly day but it was still sunny and pretty out. After a while I started to warm up, get comfortable and now I was in my zone. Which was right in front of the camera. We had a good meal, laughed and enjoyed family time. I really enjoyed the day out with my family. Sunday was truly a good day.

I enjoy my weekends, in fact, I live for the weekends. Simply because it’s the time when I get to wind and enjoy family time. I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post.

Do you live for the weekends? Sound off in the comments. I’ll see you around the blogs. Happy Reading 🥰😘
