My Five!!

I am joining in on all of the Friday Favorite blog roundups!!! This is an easy one for me today! My favorite 5 are these adorable children in Ohio! These are my nieces and nephews from Ohio (there are three more in PA) and I am spending the weekend with them! They are definitely a great cure for a broken heart! We trick or treated last night and here is a group shot!

I will be going to school for lunches with each one of them today! I am so excited to be each ones lunch buddy!!!

Tomorrow is the big family ziplining excursion! I will be posting an update and pictures!

Thanks to everyone for reaching out and offering words of encouragement! It really has been so sweet of each one of you! I am still hanging in and trudging on!

I hope everyone out there in blog land has an amazing weekend!!!

Out of Tears and Words

I am so out of tears and feels like it is getting harder not easier! I have not talked to or heard from him since we said good bye on Sunday night.

Eventually I know it will get easier and easier but right now, it is so hard not to pick up the phone or text him. I have to keep reminding myself that I was not getting anything out of the relationship anymore.

Uggghhh...oh well, I gave the ultimatum that I knew I needed to and he made his choice (I knew in my heart what he would choose but that does not make it any easier)!

I KNOW I HAD to walk away to protect and honor myself....not only as a person in recovery but as a women in general...but that does not make it better :-(

I will be spending the weekend with my family and that will also help make it better and get my mind of of things I cannot control.

I am not going to write a long, sad and drawn out post today as I do not want to bring everyone down or put unhappiness out, I will leave you with some things I …

Wednesday Hodgepodge

I am joining in on Wednesday Hodgepodge with From This Side of the Pond

1. Are you comfortable with silence? If you're home alone, do you like silence or do you need regular background noise? Do you seek out times and places to be silent? What's your favorite place to find silence/be silent?I used to be okay with silence but I think, for now, it makes me uncomfortable and I start thinking...HA! Thinking is not want I want to do right now as I fear it will drive me to sad text which is EXACTLY what I am trying to avoid right now! So the TV or iTunes it is for now!!!!
2. October 28th is National Chocolate Day. Can't let that go by without a mention now, can we? Will you celebrate? How? Let's say you can have one of the following right this very minute... a cup of hot chocolate, a strawberry dipped in chocolate, a bowl of plain chocolate ice cream, or a slice of chocolate pie...what's your pleasure?Seriously?!?! What a great day! I will definitely celebrate!…

Men Suck AGAIN

I am REALLY bummed to be writing this but the proverbial "writing on the wall" has been there and I am finally cutting my loses and running. One Sunday I broke up with the recent guy...we made about ten months and I am truly sad and heartbroken!

There are a few "deal breakers" for me in relationships (I have had a list for years of what I will not tolerate in a relationship since being in recovery) and let's just say one or two of these came into play.

This really pains me as I am truly in love with this man and he was, I thought, everything I was waiting for in a guy.
I know I will be okay...time heals all wounds, but I am sure I will be sad for a while...
Anyone else unlucky in love?!?! we go again...
Internet hugs welcome!
Happy Monday all! 

Homecoming 2015

This happened while I was in Harrisburg! I was treated to a party of 30 kids and their parents taking pictures at my sisters house! HA - what chaos! LOL

Isn't he handsome? My adorable nephew!!

Made him get a picture with me! LOL

And I made a collage for FB of course!

My niece and I kept each other company while my sister entertained everyone. We actually spent a few hours commenting on how freekin' short the dress are for girls at Homecoming now days...wowsa! Do not bend over! LOL - but, no seriously!

I hope you all had a great hump day today!!!

Any of you see the dresses lately? Any of you have young girls? If so, you are in my prayers (actually the Dad's are in my prayers) HA

Want Hair That Moves!?

I have been an Influenster since 2012! I love every second of it! If you do now know what that is - go here and sign up! You can use my referral code HERE! You will love being a part of it!!!

One of the perks is getting to evaluate products for companies! Last week I received this little doozy in my mailbox...I am one lucky girl! 

SCORE: I think I have found my new daily hair care products!

I have to disclose that I received these products complimentary for testing purposes. My opinion of them is my own...they are AWESOME! I have long considered my hair my best asset. It is thick and very manageable so I have definitely been blessed in the hair area - but these products take my hair OVER THE TOP! Seriously! I love them all! 

I received the Youth Renewal line due to the fact that at 47 I am aging and need renewal. Ha!  It came with the three items pictured below; the shampoo, conditioner and the elixir.

I was excited to try the shampoo and conditioner because, up to now, I have no loyalty…

Hershey Half Marathon 2015

This is a post I have been training to write since the beginning of July 2015. I have been struggling for a few months now with a knee injury so I was not even sure that this race was going to happen - I almost quit so many times during training and in the beginning of the race...RECAP time!

Just to set the stage...about two months ago my knee started popping. It is something popping behind my knee when I move it a certain way and it is excruciating when it happens. It has limited my training so much but by the time it happened I was two months into training and I did not want to quit. So I kept pushing. This race has confirmed for me that I truly can DO ANYTHING that I set my mind to.

I ran the Hershy Half Marathon yesterday in Hershey, PA!! This was our pre-race was 40 degrees out and so cold! The temp was great for running but felt horribly freezing before we got going!!! My knee was hurting, I was tired and was really just NOT feeling like running AT ALL!!! Have you guys …

Long Time...No Update

I cannot believe how fast time has flow this year already! I just realized that I have not posted in over a month!


I have been keeping up with all of your blogs just not my own - LOL!!! I am getting older and time is spinning ahead so fast!

Last month (September) was a whirlwind of activities and it was crazy both in my personal life and my business life! I am going to give you a high level overview of the past few weeks in pictures to very quickly catch you up.  I am also promising that I will not go MIA like that anytime soon.

It really just got crazy busy and I could not keep up! I am not complaining believe me...I enjoy being busy but September was just CRAZZZZZYYYYYY!

Here we go!!!.....

First part of September...I had to put one of my older cats to sleep and her brother was getting lonely being home alone so I got him some friends!  Meet Nermal and Trouble. As you can see, they are already great friends and Kidrock likes them too! I am head over heals in love with them both!
