Fav Things/So Excited!!

Friends, I am beyond thrilled at what has been going on in my life. I recently moved into our very first home, my mom is hosting dinner at our childhood home and I'm going to Haiti on a missions trip in 2 weeks.

When I think of meeting all those precious orphans my heart literally starts to race. I've never been in love with kids I've only met for a few days.
Though all these great things have been happening and soon to come. It hasn't been a bed of roses.

I've had huge challenges on this road. When you are destined to rise higher you'll come across opposition. That's when you make a decision to either fight the good fight of faith or quit. Fight the good fight and win loves!

Have a beautiful, blessed and peaceful Thanksgiving!

Here are a few of my fav things of the week:

Starbucks Overload
I've been at Home Goods a little too often lately. This rug for $99!
Moment of bliss when the cable guy connected our cable after a week of no internet & TV.
My vanity room hooked up with lights!!

It's My Birthday!

My birthday juat passed and I'm 27 years young!! In the middle of moving into our new place, bracing the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, work and training classes for a side gig, I squeezed in some time to celebrate my bday.

I had an amazing night with some one of a kind outstanding ladies. Plus we went on a romantic double date with our close friends. I share a birthday with my oldest brother/soulmate (we're so similar) so I get double excited to celebrate my birthday.

We went to Negril Village restaurant and then we went Karaoke singing.
It was so fun and I got home super late and it reminded me of my college days.

Life is really about who you spend it with! I'm so grateful to be surrounded by the best.

Hope you guys have a safe and productive week. Thanks for stopping by!

Hurricane Sandy Relief & Election Day

First off, Congrats to our President on Re-Election and regardless of our views let's pray for the peace of our president Barack Obama and his family. I love America and she will rise and get stronger as we stand up for righteousness. It's righteousness that exalts a nation. 

After the devastation that Hurricane Sandy left along the Northeast, our area is still putting back the pieces of what was left after the storm. Though you might not see as much media coverage, families are still scrambling to find housing, fresh water, electricity and shelter plus extra precautionary measures are being advised due to the pending nor'easter that is threatening our region. I think it's times like this when we form relationships and strengthen the bonds of existing relationships throughout our nation.



I want us not to forget each other during these great times of need. Find a great non-profit organization and volunteer and donate now. I have worked with Samaritan's Purse on missions trips and plan on going on one within a month. I highly recommend this organization as you can rest assure that their efforts and presence are seen in the local communities making an indelible imprint on the lives of our communities. Not only do they provide support in terms of material resources they also provide prayer and spiritual advisement in troubling times when depression is eminent in the midst of tragedy.

Take action and get involved today!

This image and link is for my local church and will help with their efforts:




This link will take you to the Samaritan's Purse website and share how you can get involved.

Wishing all of you a safe and peaceful week full of love and random acts of care.
