Nature is Beautiful!!

I have to say before I had children I did not appreciate nature and what is has to offer.  Now that my oldest is running around, jumping and screaming when we go outside, there is nothing better to occupy our time.  I'M SO HAPPY IT'S WARM!!!  Even if I don't feel like doing anything, going outside and laying on a blanket is better than being in the house!  The smile on Scarlett's (10 month old) face is priceless as she smiles from ear to ear trying to put everything in her mouth from grass to crawling bugs.  I love how Laylah gets dirt under her nails and keeps playing knowing it will wash off.  Or when it rains she opens her mouth and lets the rain fall in.  She always comes running in the house showing us a flower she picked (we have tried to explain over and over not to pick them)!  She can't help it.....NATURE IS BEAUTIFUL!!!  So since were always trying to find things to do outside we took off to St. Louis for some sunny fun at Missouri Botanical Garden!!

 *Flowers that have sprung*

We had been before but never made it to the Children's Garden.  It was amazing!!!  Laylah ran around, up and down stairs and ropes.........Oh of course she wanted to wear her butterfly wings.........

They had great features such as the tree house......

The General store, which I thought was the cutest and reminds me for her kitchen at home which she loves to make pretend meals in..........

Did they have water you ask......of course.....

Although we spent what seemed like all day to dad....but only 2 hours to us. hehe We had a blast and didn't even get to see everything in the Children's Garden.  I took so many pictures and could take many more!  We will go back and explore even more very soon!  I love the fact that they had a special place in the garden for children to learn and enjoy nature.  Read or listen to the fun facts placed throughout and think about what is really going on. It feels good to watch my babies retain information and grow, I'm letting nature play a huge role in that area!! Hope you are too!!!

Here's to sunny fun as the Spring has Sprung and there's more fun to be done hahahaha

What I wore for 5 years of love!

SO HERE I GO, debating when I should write my first blog and what it should be about.  I'm new to all this and I know when you willingly put yourself out, you will be judged, human nature!!!  Well I learned to just do it and jump on in!
Soooooooooooo............I wanna talk about getting ready for my big date (5th anniversary) last night and my inexpensive dress that I wore.  First of all, I was running late like usual and didn't get to paint my nails grrrrrrr totally messed up my outfit groove!  Mothers we have said it before and we'll say it again, we can get dressed too, just say NO to mom jeans (I mean that literally cause we all know high waisted pants can be cute. haha) I was waiting for my mom to arrive and decide to run a hot bath to relax before I get ready.  It is like a going out ritual for me to take a bath by myself!  I went downstairs to grab my clothes, came back up and Laylah (my 3 year old) stole my bath water haha.  Any other time it would be fine for us to grab some tube crayons, bubbles and a barbie! haha Anyway, here's what I wore........

*Not sure of the brand but I bought this dress at Burlington Coat Factory for $20.00...Whoop
*The long feathered earrings I purchased from a friend of mine @
*And the Blue Booties I purchased from Charlotte Russe a couple years ago

So basically I took a simple black and white dress, with some vibrant spring colors and worked it.
I also paired it up with a thicker black belt, Here's what I looked like! :)

As for my makeup, I wanted to keep it simple like I always do, These are all the products and tools I used, I'm not kidding, I kept it simple!!  If you have any questions just ask.  I will be getting more detailed in the future if others are interested!! 

Most of my make up that I'm using is MAC but thats only because I just finished cosmetology school and got a really good deal on all of it!!  I believe drug store makeup is just as important, That's why it's there right?  Especially if someone claims to be a makeup artist, they can make it work!!  They even use Cover girl, Revlon etc. during New Yorks Fashion Week!

So I had a great time with my Love and we can't wait to add on many more years!!!

Well thats all folks, Please comment or leave suggestions etc. Im ready to write :-)

-Love your sweet candy girl :-) Kiss kiss
-Please excuse any typos hehe
