The History of Me in Music

Music has been a big part of my life from the time I was a baby. When I was little I would watch my mom getting ready to go out and dancing in the house to music.

FYSIKO Eyelash Growth Serum

The instructions say you won't see results until at least 4- 6 weeks. But I am so excited that at 3 weeks I had to SCREAM that it is WORKING already.

Kenya Moore Booty Bootcamp Review

If you know me you know I love The Real Housewives Series and one of my favorites is Atlanta. I think Kenya Moore former Ms. USA is a great addition this season. That being said when I was asked by the wonderful @bookieboo from Mamavation if I wanted to review her DVD Kenya Moore: Booty Boot Camp , I was like "YEAH" I want a stallion booty.

#Mamavation Monday

Mamavation Mondays





So what if it's Wednesday it will always be Monday in my heart. While I was in Campaign 15 of Mamavation and if you didn't know already the BEST campaign ever I wore my pedometer everyday. Before I even rolled out of bed I grabbed it and hooked that sucker up to my bra. Once the campaign was over I forgot about the poor little guy and my legs did also. This week I am going to start using it again religiously because seeing those numbers made me either push myself to get over those 10,000 steps or super proud when I had passed it and it was only in the afternoon. 




I have also diagnosed my self with  "FullofSHITitis" you may have heard about this disease that is going around or you may have it or had it or know someone who does. What steps did you take to get over it or are you still dealing with it ??? Do TELL !!!!

Mamavation Monday



HOLLA !!!! We made it another week and if you didn't then please send me a post card from the afterlife. I was thinking about signing up for some Tae Kwon Do classes this summer. When I was younger I took Karate and loved it. My kids took it for years and my 13 year old son is working towards his Black Belt now. I think there is nothing better and sexier than a woman who can take care of herself. We all should empower ourselves mind, body and spirit. 


This week I didn't lose any pounds but I have less jiggly parts and that's a GREAT thing.

FYSIKO Eyelash Growth Serum

*** I was gifted with this product by the company to review but all opinions are my own ***

Just wanted to update you on my review of the FYSIKO Eyelash Growth Serum. I should start by saying that the instructions say you won't see results until at least 4- 6 weeks. But I am so excited that at 3 weeks I had to SCREAM that it is WORKING already.  I have been using it every night before bed after washing and drying my face. It is so easy to use just like applying liquid eyeliner. I am using it on the top and bottom lashes. These are my results so far... My lashes are darker and they seem to be thicker and fuller. I can't wait to see the full results in 3 more weeks. STAY TUNED !!!!

WooHoo now that Mothers Day is over can they stop playing those corny commercials about how much Mom would love this or that and the music DAMN enough already. To me Mothers Day should be everyday. I don't need flowers and gifts to tell me you love me, I know you do when you leave your dirty clothes lying around or when you tell me you are hungry even though there is a fridge full of food. I am not a HATER or BITTER either because I have the BEST Mom in the world and I know this for a fact and I will say I am a pretty DAMN good Mom also. Now of course every commercial is going to be about Dad and all the tools, BBQ grills , beer and sporting events he needs. Rant over, let's move on.
Causeway to beach


Little cooling off 





 I took a nice walk/jog to the beach today with my 9 and 12 year old daughters and realized that we are so blessed to live less than 1/4 mile from the beach and just how peaceful and beautiful it is. I am going to make it my mission to go every morning and enjoy the beautiful water and fresh air. The thing is I have to go an extra 1/4 mile to get to my spot because we have the only Nude beach in South Florida and let's just say it ain't my cup of tea. To keep myself accountable I am going to take a pic and post everyday about my " Adventure to the beach". So I have my gear ready every night sunscreen, hat, shades, shoes and jug of water. 





LET'S MAKE EACH OTHER ACCOUNTABLE. WHAT CAN YOU PROMISE YOURSELF EVERYDAY TO DO TO BE A BETTER YOU ????


A 2 lb loss don't like those numbers though

Happy Mother's Day

Pregnant with me 
With my brother and me


 My Mommy ( Debbie ) is not just a great Mom but she is the Mother of all Mothers. As a little girl and to this day she has never once told me there wasn't something I couldn't do. She had me a month after turning 18 and had no idea what a "Mother" should do or be since she didn't have the best role model but she did it and beyond. Every year while growing up she would tell me the story about how she was making arroz con pollo ( rice and chicken ) and went into labor so she had to call a taxi and go on her own with her little voucher to the hospital to have me. She still calls me every year to tell me this story. You would think she was telling the story of Baby Jesus being born . She wasn't just a Mom but a Dad, Friend and my BIGGEST supporter. Anything I wanted to do or try she found a way for me to do it and was my biggest cheerleader. I always wore the coolest clothes that were in style even though she would buy hers at second hand stores. In the middle of the night she would wake me up and tell me not to sleep on my face because it causes wrinkles, ask me to get or light her cigarettes ( before everyone knew how bad they are for you) and tell me I would thank her later when I had nice thighs. She quit smoking on her own cold turkey after smoking for 35 years. She raised me and my 4 brothers and sisters mostly on her own and we came out pretty good. My Mommy is the Mom that all my friends wanted to hang out with or would call her for advice. I always knew that my Mom had my back. To this day she is the funniest, loudest, tell it like it is in a good way lady. When I didn't think she could get any better she became a Gramma and is just as GREAT if not GREATER. I only hope that she knows just how GREAT she is and how much she is loved and cherished. In my eyes my Mommy walks on water and preforms miracles everyday.If I can be 1/4 of the MOM she is my kids will be lucky. 
My HERO

 To all the Mothers out there I wish you a Happy Mothers Day not just today but everyday.

#Mamavation Monday

Mamavation Mondays

Another week another chance to show the world and yourself how AWESOME you are. This past week I have been following the Serenity Prayer ..
And of course you can never go wrong with some Maya Angelou
 
You wonder why things are the way they are

And thinking
There are times you have to

So
 
Sometimes you want the truth and sometimes


This leads me to this weeks weigh in
few ounces down
