Its A New Year & A Look Back Over The Past Year

Looking Back:
Looking back on my year in 2013 I can truly say I have had my fair share of both good & bad! Some battles I have won while others I have lost.. Made new friends & lost old ones! 

Its all one big cycle of life that is always changing & never staying the same for very long! Memories that I will cherish for many years to come while others I might possibly want to forget & bury for many years as well.. 

New life has been born unto this world & those little life's have filled my heart completely! The only other day that will fill my life completely will be the day I say I do & have children of my own to cherish & love.. 

So as I take a look back of my life during 2013 I must say I do not mind it one bit, it has made me who I am & for that I am beyond thankful.. I cannot wait to see what they new year brings!

Its a new year
With new fear
Time to take on new chances
As well as make new adventures


A New Year:
It is now time for a new year to begin while one must end! Goodbye 2013 & Hello 2014.. New chances as well as new adventures are now about to begin! Cheers to a new year & another chance for us to get it right..

As I look forward to this new year I am excited to see what it hold in store for me as well as for family & friends! May our resolutions stay firm turning all of our dreams into a reality..

I would love to tell you all each & every new thing I would love to see happen in this new year however, we all know I cannot tell a soul otherwise those dreams cannot come true & I for one would love to see them come true & become reality..

Family Time During The Holidays!

I have had plenty of family time this holiday season! Have you ladies had plenty? I have seen more of my family the past few days & needless to say I think we have all been worn out..

However I would not trade this time one bit. I love that I have a huge family & am able to enjoy time spent with them! I took a few photos with a few of the family members however it was just not possible to include every single one in photos sadly :( However I cherish the photos I did get this holiday season, & here are the photos taken!

Sweet Letters

Dear Ava
You may not be truly mine but you are mine none the less! You are one of my friends daughter & I am so blessed that she allows me to be an auntie to you.. You truly warm my heart! I love seeing you, holding you, spending time with you & most of all watching you grow... Here lately you have seemed to grow so much & its so very bittersweet! As much as I love all your new little faces you have made, your little personality or rather should I say your big personality & so much more I still do not like the fact that you seem to be growing up all too fast! Please slow down just a tad little bit please.. Here is a few photos of you from the past few days including a little funny face you made which happens to be new :)

Christmas Carols

Growing up I loved singing Christmas carols! I can still remember being with my teachers from school & going to places to sing.. I think one thing I remember is the happiness on not only my face but on those that we sang too.. If I wasn't singing in front of my teachers you better bet that I was singing in front of my parents & family driving them crazy I'm sure! When I look back over my younger years here are the songs I remember & treasure the most :)

1. Jingle Bells
2. Deck The Halls
3. Frosty The Snowman
4. Go Tell It On The Mountain
5. Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer
6. Here Come Santa Claus
7. Jingle Bell Rock
8. Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer
9. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
10. Drummer Boy
11. We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Saint Jude's Meal & Concert

This past Thursday evening at Del Monaco Winery a meal & concert was held to benefit Saint Jude's! I am happy to say that all together 10 grand was the total for that night.. 

I knew I wanted to be apart of it so I bought 2 tickets which was at $25 a piece! All money went to Saint Jude's.. I bought those tickets for Aunt Joyce & myself! I loved knowing my money was well spend to go toward a good cause! 

The events of that evening was to start with a meal which was provided by O Charley's, they served Pork Tenderloin, Scalloped Potatoes, Green Beans, & Rolls as well as beverages! Soon after the meal took place Outshyne was to perform a few songs before Jo Dee Messina made her appearance on stage!

I enjoyed this night completely except for one small part! I promise you that you ladies would never guess what it would be so I am going to let you in on my secret! Afterwards I bet you will be just as angry as I was..

Jo Dee had allowed many to take photos of her as well as video tape her except for one part which she talked about what was going on with her mother! She had asked everyone around to please not video tape or snap pictures during this time. Everyone around respected her for that choice except for one individual. 

This man whom was only a table away from me turned his cell phone on to video & placed it right in front of her for her to see that he clearly was video taping her! She looked at him & said sir are you really doing that right in front of me after I asked you not to do so? He of course gave no response which led to my anger! I then not so nicely to the gentleman said sir do you have no manners at all what so ever? Please stop being an ass & remove your damn phone. He glared at me not so nicely but I did not give a damn! 

What he failed to realize was that like us she is a human being just as we are with feelings! What she was speaking of her mother I am sure she has not shared with many.. Her mother had been ill as of about 5 months ago & spend many months in the hospital which one right after another anything bad that could happen did happen to her mother! She allowed us to hear this story because this story like many others in ler life are tied to her new album! It tells the story of where she has to be a mother, a daughter, a sister, & so much more!

I can never thank her enough for sharing that moment with us but if I could take one thing back it would be to punch the lights out of that ass that did not seem to give a damn about her or anyone but his own damn self!

Here are a few photos/videos from the night :) Enjoy!

Gansett Island Series

I found this series thanks to my wonderful nook!
The books are from the Gansett Island Series..
The men from this island are hot, sexy, exotic, & so much more!
I followed them as they found heartache, love, & other juicy goodness..

I love that each book is made for two different characters to connect & become one however, I also love that each book also keeps you up to date on the others still as well! I love how each of their lives change & grow :) 

I am now on the 10th book & I am excited to know that their are more in the making! I am so thankful that Marie Force is still writing stories on this series! It makes my day :)
