My Christmas Gift, Goodbye to 2013 and Happy New Year!!


Baby Boy: Zion






 Yeah, this is my final thoughts for the blog for the year 2013. I had my little angel; baby boy ZION at 8:04 am Christmas morning. He came just three days shy of his due date but what perfect timing. The joy and happiness of having a baby on a special holiday as Christmas quickly replaced all the discomfort that was experienced during the process. I am so grateful and thankful to God for such a wonderful gift. Now, with two lovely sons and two lovely daughters, I feel like I am the most blessed and happiest mum in the world.
 
  So, my family and I spent our Christmas at the hospital; my hubby and the other kids brought all the gifts from under the Christmas tree to my hospital room and we opened our gifts and had our Christmas dinner. It was the best Christmas ever and the beginning of many more to come. So, Good-bye 2013. It's been so much fun documenting this journey on the blog and sharing this experience. It's been a wonderful year and I thank everyone who stopped by to say hi and left comments, questions and good wishes. I thank you all for your concern, support and love. I do not know if I would have the time to continue blogging but hope I'll be able to drop in once in a while.





In conclusion, since this is a fashion blog; I'll say a little bit about fashion...:) I had the intention of doing a blog post titled "Unveiling" which was going to feature a make-up free face and a head without the wigs. So, I guess this is the post. I finally revealed my natural hair (dreads) that I have been grooming for months. With this new look, I am signing off along with these special words;



Happy New Year!!!

Wishing you all the best for 2014!

A very Merry Christmas...



                                                            White top: Express
                                                             Pants: Loft
                                                             Scarf: Target





We have finally come to the end of the year and Christmas; my best holiday, is the icing on an already beautiful and sweetly baked cake. We are having a white Christmas in Minnesota with lots of snow on the ground and cold temperatures. I am having a quiet Christmas with my family and since hubby and I are on vacation from work, we have ample time to enjoy every moment of the season with the kids plus, some of my family members came from Missouri to visit for the holidays.

I hope you all are having a wonderful time with your family too. For me, this is the most wonderful time of the year and with this; I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a very prosperous new year.

Report Signature






Tee: Customink
Scarf: Target
Jacket: Thrifted
Jeans: Loft
Boots: Report Signature via Victoriassecret
Shoulder bag: Neighborhood Boutique




I had the opportunity earlier in the fall to put three of my favorite clothing items together  in an outfit; my beloved Customink tee shirt, my comfy paisley scarf from Target  and my new Report Signature flat  heeled riding boots. The weather right now is very suitable for a second spin because of the snow blanket and low temperatures. Currently, enjoying my Christmas vacation with my family and looking forward to the arrival of our little angel.

I hope you all are in the Christmas spirit and plan to spend valuable time with God, family and valuable friends this season. Christmas is a time of giving because it started with God giving his son to die for our redemption. He alone is the reason for the season. Enjoy your Christmas and New Year holidays and thanks a lot for stopping by.

Fall..Oh Fall


Plaid dress: T. J. Maxx (old)
Scarf, tights, bracelets: Target
Jacket: Fashion Bug (old)
Boots: DSW




              I just know it; fall (Autumn) is my favorite time of the year.
              The weather gets cold but cool enough to bear
              Beautiful nice weather that is just cold enough to put on some layers and still look chic
              or snuggle under the blankets with a nice cup of hot tea.

              Now it's Winter and everything is just different
              How I miss my beloved Fall; my favorite time of the year.
              But am glad every day of the last fall was well spent
              And these pictures are good evidence hence I posted them here

              Last fall, I got some good exercise working in the yard
              and enjoyed the sound of the rake "swissshing" the leaves
              Now any exercise outside puts me continually on my  guard
              And the most common sound is that of tires "shuzzzing" in the snowy streets

               I thank God though that there is a season for everything
               And I know one thing for certain
               The seasons must all come and go
               So that every living thing surely can grow

               However,  I miss my fall-oh fall!

Easy does it....




Plaid Jacket: thrifted
Pants: Loft
Tee and Scarf: Target
Shoes: DSW



I wish I could take the clock back or wave a wand to take the weather back to how it looked on the day I took these pictures. It was a cool fall morning and the weather was beautiful; a little chilly but bearable. It is still officially fall on the calendar but Old Man Winter has crashed the party. We had several inches  of snow across the state the last couple of days and we are dealing with frigid and freezing temperatures right now coupled with dangerous wind chill. This is the time of the year when a lot of Minnesotans question why they actually live in this state. As for me, I admit it is indeed a difficult time of the season but it has kind of helped to slow things down a bit at this time of the year which is very much welcome in my own opinion. A lot of people are spending more time indoors with their loved ones as opposed to running around in the malls chasing that sale. Sometimes it is not all about that gift but about the love, time and attention that is bestowed on others.


As we all know, there is always much frenzy during the holiday season as most people make last minute effort to get their goals met and get ready for the new year. There is already consequences of such frenzy reported in the news as speed related crashes are being reported here and there. I pray for God to comfort the families of all those that are affected by these tragedies.


Thanks so much for stopping by.

My Verses for the Day:

Ecclesiastes 2:11 

Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labor that I had labored to do: and, behold, all [was] vanity and vexation of spirit, and [there was] no profit under the sun.


Matthew 16:26

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
