My New Camera

A wonderful gift from my thoughtful hubby. Just some random pictures taken with my new Nikon D5200.

Hubby had a hand in this one!

I just seen his pocket is hanging out. I love his eyes in this picture. 
I have been busy with the family just opened it last night. I have a thousand pieces that go to this camera I'm used to just point and click. I'm a simple person now I have to read to just point and click turn a setting to something it may take
me a little while to learn all of the features to find out how to use it completely. I love how clear the pictures are. I have been taking pictures for a little over a year going to school as a hobby. Now, I think I may try to profit with my pictures now that I have a great camera to take the pictures. I love when my hubby reads my mind this is by far the best Christmas gift ever.

My Christmas Flowers from my amazing hubby.

I love this picture of my Popsicle his eyes are so intense. I'm not sure who he looks more like but I think I'm going to say my hubby 100%. 
This is her new cat tower Santa left for her.

Tell me what you think of my photos? What kind of camera do you have?

Mickey's Christmas

Do you have a cat? What about dressing them up like a kid? I have been dressing my cat up since Halloween. I know it sounds silly but it's funny and cute. No, I'm not doing it to be mean I will take it off if she starts to go crazy.
Christmas 2013

Let me share some pictures from Instagram

Who else dresses up their cat or am I alone in this? I almost purchase a Buzz lightyear outfit while we were at Disney world but I passed I thought it was a little much.
Halloween 2013

 Today it was on sale.

Mickey's Christmas was great she has already fallen off her cat tower twice good news she landed on her feet. I guess that saying a cat will land on their feet is true after all. Hubby is in the process of putting down the rubber mats to put under her tower so she doesn't get a concussion! It may have been part my fault I did put catnip on the top. She was eating it big chucks of it. Hubby had to rub it in. She was high as a kite. I guess if we don't talk to our cat about catnip who will?

#59 Gone

My Bucket List is still getting things crossed off. Like Number 59 Show my mother the ocean.

We had a blast the water was a little cold but we were swimming in it. I think we have adapted to Florida to much 85 out at the beach being cold. My momma and sister came out for the Holidays with my little niece Eva who is a doll. I love her she is too cute!

Don't mind the hair I have beach hair mixed with wind not a good day for hair not to mention the salt water that sticks to me like glue. Great for the skin bad for my hair. I haven't seen her in a year I miss a lot her seen her being born which was a little weird my sister laughed and talked the whole time giving birth. She is now two years old I'm missing so much living here in Florida but good news my sister is thinking about moving here yeah. I'm showing her places while they are here.

We are having so much fun feeling a little home sick. First Christmas with my family since Christopher was born can't wait to spend it outside this year. It's still a weird getting use to it here with no snow.

Potato slicer

Okay, I just bought a potato slicer that supposed to make perfect fries because my hubby insisted. Since I ruined Christmas for him. I won't give him a baby or let him have a dog. I know I'm a horrible person. My hubby is weird sometimes he has been on this kick for perfect fries. I guess the way  I cut the potato by hand is not good enough! I swear the arguments we have make me laugh. He wanted me to go to Merritt Island to get this damn potato slicer which I didn't want to do. It's like four lines of traffic at anytime you go over the bridge. It's insane unless I'm going to the beach I have no need to go to the Island. I sound like that movie where they clone you. I have been chosen to pick up a potato slicer! lol

I paid eight dollars for it. Well not worth the eight dollars it broke after one potato was done. I will go back and buy the $30 dollar one in search of the perfect fry. Not sure it will work but I'll let you know. I will fight the traffic and try to contain myself when people are acting dumb when they are driving. All in the name of love because he is worth it. 

I guess it does have that perfect fry after all but don't tell my hubby I said so. I was against the potato slicer from the start. I mean using it or cutting it is the something!

Work Bitch!!!

This is my new favorite song to workout to. I like to run on the treadmill which becomes a little hard ony knees that's why  I love the elliptical. It's great motivational music. Lol not really since I hate the word Bitch.Let me tell you why too many women think it's cool to refer themselves as one but get mad when someone calls them one. Women are so much more it's sad most don't value themselves. I love the beat of the music especially when I'm working the rope. That is an awesome core and upper body workout.  It's the last thing I do before I leave the gym. My heart rate skyrocket. It's that last burn I need.I give everything I have left my arms are literally jello afterwards. Christopher even tries to work it. I like that we are a family of fitness. My boys don't see it as a punishment. They love to run around or do pushups.  Justin has been like that ever since birth.  Kids in his gym class were mad at him in kindergarten for wanting to do jumping jacks. They still are just 
recently his gym teacher told me that Justin is very active in class. He is always asking to do more while the others are saying No! I'm sore today the rope has just been added to my workouts this week on arm days. Try it out let me know how you like it. Have a great day!

Shopping with my 3 YEAR OLD

I have to laugh at Christopher he is a true nut. I walked into Aarons furniture store. I remember talking to Christopher and asking him to be on his best behavior until we leave. Laugh now I know it was not going to happen. I seen a table online so I wanted to go in and look at it so I could buy it. GOOD NEWS it gets delivered on Saturday. I'm so excited I haven't had a table in about a year because we were going to build it but it didn't turn out the way that we thought it would. Back home my hubby built the table in the wall which was pretty neat because it was half in the kitchen half in the living room best of both worlds right. First, Hubby calls me. Trying to off the phone with that man is like impossible he talks more than a woman. Sorry babe but you do. He was trying to tell me to get other things all I wanted was a table I don't like to shop. I know I'm weird! Trying to fill out paperwork was nearly impossible when Christopher spilled the water that the sales associate gave us all in our lap. Not bad I suppose it's just water. Christopher starts off saying hello to everybody then he takes off. I finally get him after making three rounds in the store running after him trying not to knock over anything as he's laughing and saying mom can't get me.  I pick him up then he licks me. He is in this licking stage I have no idea why. He wants to lick everything the couch his brother me the cat the Christmas tree the window my phone. It's totally gross! He finds  a kid in the store looks a little bit younger than him maybe 1. Mind you his parents are no where in sight. Christopher starts showing him around the store.Which in turn is fantastic for me turns out it was cheaper than I thought. I ended up just buying it right out. He was like a little  Aarons associate. He has my phone mind you and he is taking pictures of everything. Thank God the sales associate has kids two twins girls that are 3 as well. He understood even made a comment that's why he has a job and she stays home. I can't be mad at him. He did tell me he had a really good time even thanked me for taking him. Christopher is so sweet! It's all part of the job being a mom I love it!!!!

The table 
I bought.

The plant Christopher said he likes. He took a picture of it. 

He wanted to buy this! 

Random new friend.

A Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without giving. The boys and I donated about six coats to the Salvation Army with a duffle bag of my hubby's clothes that he no longer wears of course. Sending in a Christmas gift today for a little boy who is the same age as my little one. Who may not get anything but what we bought him. Justin was so cute explaining to his brother what we were doing.  Christopher kept asking why doesn't Santa just get him toys. Justin finally just told him he will. While looking at me and said  "I hope he does." It's hard not being able to explain fully without destroying Christmas for my son. I have always told him that some people don't believe in Christmas that's why Santa doesn't come. I don't know what else to say. We give a lot around this time of year. I help out everywhere I can. Now, That my son is getting older he understands more of the meaning of Christmas not what he will get. He sent a gift in for someone in his school and one for a child overseas.  We were on the way to his tap class when he asked if we could stop to give a homeless person his last ten dollars.  I pulled off in the parking lot where the man was. Justin ran up to him as I was getting out of the car.

Justin "Maybe you can get something to eat. Merry Christmas try to be safe." 

Yes, I'm a proud momma. A qick note please be careful if you take part in giving to a homeless person.  

The gift contains
Thomas the Train, Captain America and in the stocking is filled with cars.

I hope we helped out just a little for this little boy.

Cup of Joe

Here is a site that helps our Troops have a piece of home away from home.  Order a cup or a bag for our Troops who are away. My son Justin has been doing this for a little over a year. He loves buying coffee because of the emails he gets back from our troops. He cuts the grass along with chores around the house for coffee money.  Then with my help he orders coffee.  He also has a love for coffee.  I will take him to Starbucks for a decaf coffee or smoothie for our coffee Friday's. Its every Friday like clockwork we are at Starbucks after school. He is such a talented and caring giving kid that I've ever seen. I'm so proud to be his mother. Please help Justin show our appreciation for our troops and everything they do daily to ensure our safety  and Freedom.

Holiday mail for Heroes

I know this time of year brings a lot to one's plate to get ready for Christmas. I try to do something daily to help someone out. I'm forever donating clothes household items to charities. My son buys coffee for our troops through My hubby is a handman who helps others with their house if you need it fix he is the guy to call. He is Amazing! He is very talented when it comes to just about anything.  This year we have sent mail to Holiday Mail for our Troops. It's hard to be away this time of year why not drop a card off to someone who could use a pick me up filled with hope, kindness mix with a Thank You for your Service.  I mean it's the least we can do. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE sacrifice heartache and pain is attached to our troops and their families.
Deadline is December 6 so get your card out today.


There have been so many reports this past week about drivers that lost control of their car like the one that Paul Walker was in. Even though he was famous its sad that his death came at an early age. There's also an accident on I4 here in Florida  a white SUV was going the wrong way on the road and collided with four other cars. No other information was given but on my way to the gym every morning there is a big giant cross with a name Samantha on it. There was an accident 3 months ago I drive by it everyday my heart goes out to the family that suffer daily knowing they have to live day to day without Samantha in their life. No I don't know what happened to her. I remember the day were I had to take a detour the freeway was closed down a sense of sadness overwhelms me people today don't value life. No one ever drives the speed limit. Yes, I Drive the speed limit it took me a very very long time to  learn how to drive. I was in a car accident when I was 16. I was trapped in the car. I won't ever forget that day.  How the impact felt what I saw the little girl screaming in the other car even though it wasn't my mother's fault it was the other driver. He was drinking and driving at the time. It doesn't really matter he should have never been driving. I was 24 when I learned how to drive. The only reason I learned how to drive thanks to my wonderful husband. Who took the time and effort to show me. He had to literally pick me up and set me in the driver seat. I almost had a panic attack I wanted absolutely nothing to do driving I was perfectly fine walking everywhere. Walking not so bad it gives me time to think. My husband doesn't see it that way he tends to worry when I'm out walking. He's a big giant worry wart I think he's getting old. I don't text and drive I don't even use my phone when I drive. Driving is important task that you have to take on its not something you have to do it's a privilege not a need. I believe cars shouldn't go over the speed limit people should not be able to speed. There is no need to rush go through a red light honk at the person in front you. There's no reason to ride somebody's tail to try to make them go faster. If you're late then you should get up a few minutes earlier or leave a few minutes earlier to get to your destination on time. It drives me absolutely insane when I get behind a person I see a child that should be in a car seat or a seatbelt long behold they are not they have free range of the backseat while parent's up front texting. I also love with somebody is trying to merge on the freeway goes from 30 to 50 then just stops right in front of you like they forgot how to drive. When I go to pick my son up from school I really cannot understand why people speed with the school right there. While there are hundreds of kids walking on the sidewalk and riding their bikes. I hate driving I don't think I will ever like it but I'm a good driver. I pay attention follow the rules I just wish more people would do the same. Life is a precious thing more people need to wake up and realize that before they get behind the wheel. God Bless you today please be safe.
