oh what a day




Hello my blogger friends... Today is Good Friday, the Friday before Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross, and the 1 year anniversary of my fathers passing! WOW, a lot to take into today for me and my family... I'm not a very religious person, but after my fathers passing I've been drawn closer to my religion than ever. Some will understand, and some won't... And that's OK!  I'm not a preacher so I will leave it at that... But I do believe!!! Stronger than ever! 

On a more pretty pastel note... I love this pallet! It's so fresh and fun, but still on the calm and classic side. For Easter I hope to wear these tones. Plus, don't you just love this soft and delicate petal pink velvet mixed in with gold. Yummy! I'm upholstering a sectional for a client in a soft beige velvet. Heaven for your body and your soul...

Hope your Friday is filled with so much love and laughter...  Stay calm and carry on!

summer is near...



Getting ready for summer is definitely a fun, but daunting task... At least for me is is!  You want all new fresh summer clothes... A of course a healthy rocking body! Sometimes you get  50% or even 75% percent of that wish... But what I do know you can achieve is a new Turkish wrap! Oh My Gosh... They're absolutely to die for! We all couldn't stop trying out each wrap in the rooster. I fell in love!!! Plus, the fabulous thing about these wraps are that they can be used as table cloths, beach blankets, baby blanket covers and even bathing suit cover ups. Yes, please!!!!    Stop by and see for yourself... Be prepared for summer!!!!

seeing the light



Onward and upward is my attitude right now... I truly feel the weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Picture this, You've driven through a big snow storm. Every which way you look was solid thick white snow...  And then all of a sudden you see the light from the sky shining through... I'm breathing again! Having that feeling only puts a smile on my face. So I guess it's only natural for me to go towards this calm pallet... I love this feeling. What's your go to colors?

a true blessing!



Saying goodbye to a loved one is always so hard and sometimes extremely unbearable! After losing my father last year, coincidentally one year ago {April}, I felt the world crush down on me... Now losing my grandmother I've taken a step back and started to analyze and feel it differently. I'm not going to say good by to her... I'm going to honor and cherish her like she's sitting on my shoulder all day... Everyday! I know she's another angel with me now. I'm so  very lucky to have her protecting me!  I can talk to her all the time. I've had a lot of loss this year... So I've slightly become numb to negativity. But the weird thing is the moment she passed I felt a release of pressure inside of me. I don't know why, but I'm free and alive again... Please don't think that I'm not sad, I am... But it's a sadness that we're not going to make anymore memories together or hug each day. She lived an amazing life. Hello she was 101 years old. A true blessing! 

Genevieve Eidson, passed Friday, April 4th at 9:30 pm.  She went out with so much grace and style. I truly was so blessed for having her in my life for all of those years. She taught me to keep my head up high when times were tough, keep a smile on my face, always give to others and laugh when you can. Her morals and values were so Strong that I will cherish them and pass them down to my children...

I love you Grandma with all my heart! Can't wait to chat with you in my dreams. I will miss you not sitting in the chair at the rooster... So please make my flowers bloom! I will water you everyday... I love you so much!!!!!!

You were a true blessing in all of our lives... Rest in peace pretty lady!

cooking party




After much discussion and back and forth changes on what Taylor wanted to do for her birthday... She "finally" decided to have a cooking party! I was thrilled... I thought to myself, no ones done this before and it will be so fun for the kids. I stumbled  upon this  cute little Bakery in Carmel Valley called, Towne Bakery. Adorable & Yummy all wrapped in one! Definitely my kind of place. 

OMG this was the most perfect party ever! No joke! Towne Bakery provided each girl with a white apron and a colorful bandana {too keep} to put their hair back. They decorated butterfly sugar cookies and cupcakes as per Taylor's request. It all went so smoothly and was very simple. The entire time all I heard were giggles and saw endless smiles! I left laughing and doing the happy dance. Best of all Taylor was on cloud nine! She absolutely loved it... They treated her like a princess and were very attentive to her every need. I would so recommend this bakery to anyone who lives in the San Diego area. A must for your next Birthday Party... Rooster Approved!

peaceful punch!


 
 
Does peaceful punch make sense to anyone? I love the calm soothing feel of a powder blue {anything},  but adding in a punch of color like orange makes me so happy! This combination is fun and classic all wrapped in one. what's your peaceful punch?

night reading {keeping it real}...

OK... Don't judge! 

I just finished the trilogy of Fifty Shades of Grey. O.M.G... LOVED IT! The first two books WOW... The third, hmmmm I have to say, I forced myself to complete it. Funny thing is, my assistant, said the same thing... She became uninterested and still hasn't finished the third book. Of course the very end got good and I didn't want to put the book down again. Now It's time to wait for February 14th, 2015... The movie {1st book} comes out! 

Then... I started this book, The Love Dare. This book was recommended to me by a wonderful mom at my kids school. I have to say, it has been extremely interesting. It makes you think about your relationships... Marriage and Friendships. If you're ever in the need for a daily challenge, I say get it. Your eyes will open wide on how you treat your loved ones. OK... Ask yourself, "How do you greet your friends?" Now... Ask yourself, "How do you greet your husband?" Hmmmmm Go get this book!   
 
I started this book, The Happiness Project, last year, right after New Years, 2013... Was totally into it and then I really don't know what happened and stopped reading it. So I decided to pick it back up again and finish it this year, 2014. I'll let you know how happy I get when I'm finished. haha


So last night I  started, The 5 Love Languages... I've heard such good things about this book. If Patti from  Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo TV, says it's what every woman and man should read... I'm on it! LOL 


Now I ask the famous last question... What should my next read be? Do you all have any good recommendations? Please do tell! I'm on a roll... I need more to keep my mind filled with love and laughter! 
 
OH By the way... I hope I haven't scared my readers {new and old} away... I'm just an honest and open person! I probably say more than I should, but hey, you only live once! So live life to its fullest!

birthday prep...








So my little princess is turning 8 next month. Time sure does pass by fast. Unfortunately, last year Taylor didn't get a birthday party because my father was on his last leg of his illness and my mind was a little distracted. So of course I promised her a big over the top party this year. Way to open my big fat mouth... Yaaa mom of the year! I've been searching high and low on pinterest for ideas... Now, I'm so excited to plan this little "event" for her! I don't want to let the cat out of the bag on what we're doing... But here are some fun decorations that I'm considering!
