Friday Favorites (April 3rd 2015) 21 Weeks Pregnant!


I have to admit that I’ve been slacking on my Friday Favorites.  :/

Sometimes I am just too tired to do anything since I’m pregnant.  <—- Yes, I used that as an excuse!

Any-who…lets get to it….

Bloggers Erika, AndreaNarci, & I are linking up and giving you our Friday Favorites!

#1 I’m 21 Weeks Pregnant

Yep!  I’m more than halfway through my pregnancy.

19 weeks to go!!

Karter (yes that’s the baby’s name) now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long.

He’s about the size of a carrot.  🙂

Many people keep telling me that the time is flying…

Of course they would think that, because they aren’t the ones carrying my little load. 🙂


#2 Toys R’ Us Bike & Trike Trade In Event

Kendall was in need of a new bike, so this worked perfectly for us.

I just took her old bike to my nearest Toys R’ US and I received $20 off my new bike purchase.

Depending on the amount of the new bike you can get up to $50 off!

If you have an old bike sitting around no matter the condition take it in to get an upgrade.

Hurry this event send Saturday, April 4th.


That’s it for today!  See ya next time!

Friday Favorites (January 30th 2015) My Bun In the Oven

What an awesome Friday it is!!

Bloggers Erika, Andrea and Narci & I linking up and giving you our Friday Favorites!

Today is all about my bun in the oven.  I just entered my second trimester.

I’m super excited about having my 3rd child.  My husband and the kids are excited as well.

I must admit that I am a little impatient about finding out the gender….

Which is why I opted to take a Harmony test today and that gave me the option to find out the gender early.

So of course I let them draw my blood so I could get my results ASAP….According to the doctor ASAP is about 2 weeks.  I’m hoping earlier. 🙂

You can expect a post as soon as I know.

In the meantime here are a few ultrasound pics of my new love.




I pray you all have a great weekend!

Friday Favorites (January 16th 2015)

Yayyy….It’s Friday!!!  I’m always glad about that.

Bloggers Erika, Andrea and Narci, & I linking up and giving you our Friday Favorites!

Here are a few of my favorite things from this week.

#1 Boys Wool Coat

I was shopping online (I do that A LOT) at ans came across this really nice coat for my son.

I was actually looking for one and this one was perfect!

It was originally $105, but it’s on sale for 42.99…I used a 25% off coupon and I also received $4.84 back from Ebates…So I only paid $30.06!!!!

That’s what I call a deal!!

#2 My son and his thoughts about the new babies???

Tre’ is really a sweetheart…He’s a mama’s boy and just so darn cute!

Earlier this week while getting ready for school he said, “Mom, there better be 2 babies coming or I’m not going to be happy.” He wants a girl for Kendall to play with and a boy for him to play with.  Awwww…My little prince is always thinking of others.  He caught me a little off guard, because it was so random.  I told him that the doctor had already showed Mommy the inside of her belly and confirmed that there will only be 1 baby.  He quickly got over it and said as long as it’s a boy…lol  He actually has a named picked out too, but I need to get more clarification on that.  🙂

#3 My daughter and her thoughts about the new baby

Kendall is just in love with kissing my belly and rubbing it.  She talks to the baby too.

She wants me to have a girl and she says that she want to help with everything.

She really wants to help bathe and dress the baby, because according to her she knows how to do those things well…My little Princess is something else, I tell ya!

I just hope when the baby is born that she performs exactly what she says she wants to do.

All in all I know I’ll have 2 great big helpers!

That’s it for today…Have a great weekend!

Friday Favorites (January 2nd 2015) Special Edition


It’s the 1st ever Friday Favorites of 2015….Bloggers Erika, Andrea and Narci, & I linking up and giving you our Friday Favorites!

This edition is special because I’m going to share with 3 things I will be doing for sure this year.

No…if, ands or buts about it!

It’s a new year to be a better me!

#1 Debt Detox

Instead of making resolutions that I’m probably not going to keep, I’ll be paying down debt and making my life a whole lot easier when it comes to getting things that my family needs.  School loans, credit cards and etc….You name it and I’ll be reducing it.

erase debt

#2 Read My Bible More

Last year I really sucked at this.  I would have it with me on Sundays, but didn’t really do much else with it during the week.  I’m a busy parent, but I should always make time to not only read the word, but study it as well.

the Bible

And last but certainly not least….

#3 Prep for my Family’s new arrival

All parents know that when you are expecting a child, there is a lot of stuff that needs to get done.

The worst thing to do is wait until the last-minute.

I’ll be moving Kendall or Tre’s room to the guest room, which means getting rid of the guest room decor that in there.  The baby will have a room close to the master bedroom.  We have to purchase a crib and basically everything else that comes along with having a new baby.  We have nothing left from when Kendall & Tre’ were babies.  I’ll have to paint the nursery and the list goes on and on.  Whew!  My husband has some work to do….lol

 We already feel ourselves outgrowing our current house, so I can see a new BIGGER home in our future.

A baby is a blessing

Friday Favorites (December 12th 2014) Surprise!!

#2 I’m Pregnant!

Yep…Baby #3 is on the way!

We have a little over 7 months to get everything together.

I never thought I would be writing this in a post.

I was for sure I was done having kids, but God said otherwise. 🙂

I’m already thinking of what changes will have to be done around the house.

I can’t wait to know if we’re having a boy or a girl. (My husband & I have been searching names)

In the meantime, I’m sure I’ll be extra hungry, moody, irritable, have trouble finding things to wear and etc., but that’s all apart of this pregnancy journey.

See you next Friday!

Friday Favorites (November 28th 2014) Thanksgiving Week with the Kids

Happy Black Friday!!

I know some of you were shopping til’ you drop.

 Bloggers Erika, Andrea and Narci, & I are giving you our Friday Favorites!

The kids were home all this week on their Thanksgiving break, so of course I had to keep them busy.

Eddie had to work Monday-Wednesday, so it was just me and the kiddos.

Here are my favorite things from this week:


We had lunch at McDonald’s and they played their little heart out.

This is the only pic I took because they were too busy running around with all the other kids.


Here’s Tre’ posing with our new inflatable snowman.


Our Trip to the 99 Cent Only Store







We visited Eddie at work and the kids took over as usual…lol

They love it there!













Afterwards we headed to Monkey Joe’s….

That trip lasted for 3 hours!!

I was tired, but thanks to the Wi-Fi, I was able to get some things done.

You know….check my email, post some pics, browse some sites and etc.










Can you find Tre’?


The kids played outside with their friends A LOT today and I didn’t take many pics.



Kendall was listening Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain”….ALLLLLLLL DAY! Now Tre’ is singing it too.

They were sleep after a quick trip to Dollar Tree.

We had a great time with family and friends.

It was just a fun and loved filled day.

My son and I visited Dollar Tree on Thursday and we stumbled upon this cute little sign.

At that instance I knew that I would take it home and find a place for it. 😉

It cost a buck and that wasn’t breaking the bank at all, so that was a great find.

# 4 Mommy & Son Time

Tre’ had to stay home because he was getting over Strep Throat.

I know this feeling all to well….I had it just last month….UGH!  No fun at all!

Even though her was feeling under the weather, he still kept me on my toes.

We took lots of pictures….many retakes too and the pics still didn’t come out as clear I wanted.

I knew I had to stop, because he told me “Mom, you should have gotten the shot by now.” LMBO…He’s too funny.

#5 Kendall’s Drawings

photo 3 (2)

I love to see what Kendall draws, because it’s so cute to me.

Pictured above is her drawings of Olaf from Frozen, a baby chick and a Cow that is being chase by a bunny.

I love her imagination.  She’s an Artist and I know her drawings will improve with time.

She’s 6 and on a roll…I love my Princess!

Okay….I don’t claim to be Kiescha Woods, but I did alright Tuesday night at TopGolf.

I’ve been wanting to go and I finally got my chance.

It was a networking event, so not only did I have fun, but I met some really cool people.

You would have thought we’ve known each other forever.

All and all this week was great!  

See ya next Friday for next weeks’ favorites.
