A BUSY MOMMY WHO NEEDS A VACATION

I apologize due to my lack of posting however everything had been hectic and I am sure we all have experienced those moments where we just want to get away from everyone and have some “Me Tyme” to think.

Finally the hubby, the boys and I will be taking our first trip to Florida and of course we will be visiting Disney World! I can’t wait to see their beautiful faces brighten up once we get there and of course I’m taking the Kodak and video camera to capture these special moments. :)

We still have a few weeks before we leave however I need to pack now because I am a last minute packer and end up forgetting to pack a lot of items. Anyone wants to help me pack? lol

On the other hand the boys and I took pictures…

Friday Fave Five Blog Hop 8-15-2014

 

Today I am linking up with Moms Got Mail for Friday Fave Five Blog Hop (this is her 19th blog hop which happens to be one of my favorite numbers..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEST FRIEND Ebolicious (Eboni)!

We have a date to take current pictures, dinner and a movie.

eb&me

1. One of the bestie Ebolicous Gifts…It’s a beautiful plaque.

ebonigift

2. Kindness

I would like to thank Jen at  Moms Got Mail got mail because she has helped me a lot, which I find very difficult in the blogging business. She has also given her opinion on matters that had nothing to do with blogging. Jen is beautiful inside and out, kind hearted and just an awesome woman all around and I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart because you didn’t have to do all you have done. It may have been little to you but it’s huge in my eyes!

thankyou3.My Favorite Online Purchase (& Something for you Mothers).

I bought the boys Pea coats from Zulily and really like them however they are not what I expected but I still love them plus they are double breasted so I will be making many more purchases. It’s ridiculous how many sales they have on high quality items. To those mother doing school shopping click here to save a lot of money. Plus they have tons of other products besides clothes.

I bought three of these coats (4, 5, and 5/6) because I wasn’t sure if their clothes ran true to size. Thank God I did that because these coats run small plus I like my boys clothes to fit them a certain way.

boyscoat4. Love your love ones

My best friend Ebolicous husband lost his Mom last Tuesday and the hardest thing to see is your loved ones in pain and there’s nothing you can do but be there for them. With that being sad cherish your loved ones because tomorrow is never promised but death is guaranteed to each and everyone of us!

5. On a lighter note

God knew what he was doing when he blessed me with two little boys because all my life I wanted twin girls. Then I changed my mind a few months into my pregnancy or was it before I got pregnant? lol Anyways I wanted my first child to be a boy because my Mother has four girls and that was my gift to her. So now she has two handsome Grandsons whom she adore.

I love their Bond!

KRINFO

I truly don’t see KR picking these tattoos out. Odd who would want this type of temporary tattoo? I’d understand if it was for a cause. My boys can’t even use these so these will be swapped.

Item Two: Ice Cream Cone Ankle Socks by Living Royal $10
KR6

These socks are cute. I haven’t decided if I’m going to gift them or swap them out?

Item Three: Diamond Cutout Necklace $24.50

KR7

This is a cute necklace but not my style too dainty. This will be swapped.

Item Four: Luna Holographic Checkered Clutch by Hello Parry $45
K78

One of the suggested usage of this bag was for a mini ipad which I think would be a tight fit. hmmmm.. I’d probably use it as a receipt or money bag.

Everything KR sent for August..
