WEDNESDAY MORNING CHAT: GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

 


Happy Wednesday friends!

As you can tell this post should've gone up this morning, but I didn't wake up on time, do I ever though? lol 

I remember the days I would wake up at 4:45 am or 5! I mean what? Talk about motivation! Once you fall off track, it's so hard to get back to the early morning routines!

I really don't know what this post will be about, I'm having just so many thoughts on my mind & blogging all about it helps me get through it. 

Rewind five months ago, life seemed great! I had reached a point in my life where not only, was I mentally doing good, but physically and spiritually getting better. 

April 8, life changed. You hear it all the time, "enjoy life because it can change in a split second". I'm here to tell you that, it's true. 

One moment you're at work, eating a sandwich, then the next second, you're rushing to the hospital in hopes that your biggest fear doesn't become a reality. 

I've gone through all the emotions. Anger, sadness, grief, happiness, every thing. I guess in our situation when I say grief, we feel grief, because we lost a part of my husband. We lost sense of security. I've lost the feeling of feeling safe. 

Sometimes I feel guilt. Guilt because maybe I could've done something. I could've appreciated life more, and maybe if I would have this wouldn't have happened. 

Happiness because well my husband is still here, safe. Because this community has been AMAZING. They have supported our family so much. 

Since April 8, I have learned to appreciate life even more. Because I now KNOW that it can change in a split second. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post somewhat. I had no idea what I would write so here we are lol 

Thank you guys for stopping by! 

Talk to you soon!

3 TARGET OUTFITS UNDER $30

Wednesday, June 16, 2021

 





Happy Wednesday friends!

I know it has been a hot minute since I've shared anything!

Life has been hard lately, and I'm slowly but surely getting back to reality and getting use to our "new" normal. 

One thing that has got me ready to get back to blogging is that fitting rooms are slowly opening backup!!! I am so dang excited! 

Of course my first post is a Target Try On! Mama has gained a few pounds so I was hesitant to try anything on! I will confess, I had a melt down last week when I went in to try some bathing suits. Listen...life has been tough and food has been my comfort sooo we're rolling with it (no pun intended). 

The first outfit came home with! From top to bottom! Paid a total of$50! Not too bad. This leopard tank (available here) is so cozy! I think this is a new brand at Target, or at least I hadn't seen it before. But the material is so good! These shorts (available here) are definitely a summer staple! Great booty coverage, material is amazing & you can dress them up or down!

This next outfit was my second favorite! I really liked the top (available here) but I just don't think it was flattering on my body style. Another pair of affordable shorts (available here) ! These are perfect for a summer date night!

Okay here me out this dress (available here), I don't know how I feel about it. I mean it's cute but I'm a little too short for it so I feel like a piƱata lol I think if you're a bit taller than this would look so cute!

So that is it for my first post back!  Thank you guys for all the support you have shown us! We truly couldn't get thru this season of life without y'all!

See y'all next time!

LET'S CHAT: SNOW STORM + GRATEFUL FOR THE LITTLE THINGS

Friday, February 19, 2021


Happy Friday friends!

We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

It has been crazy here in Texas, in case you haven't heard. I honestly can't believe how bad things got around here. So many people were without power this entire time, and I just can't imagine how they were feeling. 

We were fortunate enough to have power the whole time. We ended up losing water 2 days ago. And we have a busted  pipe. But overall I think we made it out of this okay. 

So many people didn't. I've read 2 stories in which people died trying to stay warm. I don't think any of us were prepared for this. 

With COVID in 2020 and this Winter storm, I feel like it has taught us so much. 

I'll be the first to admit, looking back I do feel like I have taken so much for granted. 

It's crazy that all these events had to happen for me to realize how much I have to be thankful for. I guess life is like that sometimes.

So if you're reading this, I pray that you never take anything for granted again. A warm shower, a warm house, a hot meal, or hugging your family. 

To my friends in Texas, I am praying for us all. We are one day closer to being done with this. And we have 60 degree weather to look forward. 

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend! I'll talk to you next week! 



WALMART TRY ON!

Wednesday, February 3, 2021

 






Happy Wednesday friends!!

How has life been for you? 2021 started off a little better than 2020 but I think we're all a little on edge with this "new normal". 

I have been trying my best to improve my blog and the content I put out. I know a lot of people don't really read blogs anymore, but honestly I can't give up my blog nor do I plan too. There's just something about this little space of mine that draws me in. I love sharing life with you! So with that said, please leave me a comment with what blog content you would like to see. 

So clearly I am a bit obsessed with Walmart! They have just been really stepping up their game y'all! I found the most basic pieces that I know you will get a ton of use out of! 

This chambray top will be perfect for Spring and Summer! And only $15! Doesn't get much better than that! 

I may loose some of y'all on this, but I am not a huge fan of the tye dye trend! I just feel like I can't pull it off! BUT I can go for a subtle tye dye! This top is perfect because again its not too colorful!

When I tried this pullover on I felt like I needed to be taking a long night walk by the beach! I mean if you've ever done it you know how it's just so peaceful and something about it relaxes you instantly! 

And finally this simple top! I always size up in the No Boundaries collection! It's intended for "juniors" but I just size up! lol This top comes in a few other colors and is lightweight so great transitional piece! 

So that is it for this quick Walmart Try on! Like I mentioned earlier in the post, please leave me a comment with blog posts that you guys to want to see/read! 

Thank you so much for stopping by & for continuing to support my blog!

WORKOUT OUTFIT UNDER $50 / MY FITNESS GOALS FOR 2021

Wednesday, January 20, 2021

 










Happy Wednesday friends! 

Today has been such a crazy & busy day at work! 

But I am back with some more Walmart finds! 

I have been trying to reward myself with some new workout clothes for my 3 year "fitness" anniversary! I literally cannot believe I changed my lifestyle 3 years ago! 

I should have abs by now and killer arms buy hey it's a fitness journey for a reason lol 

Anyway back to the outfit! I snagged this dri fit long sleeve (available here) for only $10! Comes in a few other colors, I bought mine a size xs. 

I've talked about these leggings (available here) several times and I am obsessed! They are so so cozy and flattering! They also have the cute see through detail on the ankles! They remind me of something Fabletics would carry! 

My current favorite sneakers (available here) are only $20. I love these! I use mine for lifting or just running errands. They are comfortable and I love that they're slip ons!

I know it has been a hot minute since we talk anything fitness around here, 

So I wanted to update you guys on what my fitness goals are this year! 

Which in all honesty I don't have too many lol 

My number on priority this year is to really eat healthier, but still enjoy a cheeseburger here and there. My eating habits have always been a struggle and although I am continuing to workout, you know what they say, abs are made in the kitchen! 

My next goal is to concentrate a little more on my upper body. I feel like I have neglected it so much these past couple of months. 

And my final goal is to just live a healthier lifestyle overall and share all the ups and downs with you guys! 

You have all been there since the beginning and I truly am grateful for y'all!
