My guard is down…

I sit here completely confused about life, friends, relationships and a lot of other things that I thought to be true that apparently are not.  I typically do not take to my blog to discuss my personal feelings like an episode of The Kardashian’s or should I say like Kim Kardashian when she talked to everyone, including a camera, rather than her husband about her true feelings regarding their marriage. Do not get me wrong, I love me some Kim and her fashion style but sometimes we should talk to an individual versus a camera or no one.  Life is a constant roller coaster of ups and downs and all we can honestly do is make the best of the opportunities that have been given to us and/or presented to us.  Some people constantly wait with their hand out, waiting for the world to give them something rather than working for it. I am not one of those people–I am working for it, I will obtain it and once I do I am going to run with it from there!  I have gotten to that point in my life…that I have to truly follow my heart and do what is right for me.  No one will love me as much or MORE than I love myself and we should all know this.  We should all love ourselves more than anything–minus your children if you are a parent!  Here is to new adventures, endeavors and growth.  Hang on and get ready for the ride because it is bound to get bumpy! 😉

I hope that everyone is having a great day and I hope that you are not letting anyone rain on your parade!! 😀  XoRo

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson~  Self Portrait of myself backlit at Caddo Lake--loving the lens flare

Lazy Sunday

I cannot believe how quickly this weekend has zoomed by and that Sunday is halfway over!  I must admit, I enjoy days like today…total bum days! I have accomplished what I have needed to, but there is a great feeling when you can be an absolute coach potato.  I have sat here and caught up with Keeping Up With the Kardashians and listened to Kris Jenner moan like she was playing Anna Kournikova in the final match of the U.S. Open!  It was a hilarious sight to see her get “angry & upset” when her kids started mocking her!  Come on, you are the only person grunting!!  Anyhow, I am getting off subject!  I decided to do a quick half hair style versus letting my hair look like a rag doll!!  Here are a few images of my half hair flipped with plaits & braids that I tried on my own without a tutorial!  I love Hair Romance and it is definitely a blog you should read and follow if you are a hair whore nut like myself!  Seriously she rocks my socks off!! She even put jewelry in a top knot to make it even more chic! Loves it!!  Anywho, here is a quick lovely collage of my creation…trust me it is nothing like Christina’s creations but I think I did good considering I decided to randomly do it!  Image of my crazy creation that turned out cute!  Pinning and braiding your hair is so needed for summertime in Texas

Yesterday I had such an incredibly great afternoon! I got to enjoy dinner with a beautiful view of nature but was glassed so that we could enjoy the air conditioning! Seriously, RiverBend Restaurant was amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling near, through or in the general vicinity of Caddo Lake.  Here are a few iPhone images to show the beauty of dinner and the start of a great afternoon! ImageImageImage

I hope that everyone is having a super lazy and wonderful Sunday evening!!
