Fresh Start Challenge Day 25: Love Your Baby Girl

Dear Daddy,

Thank you for always being my guidance. They say that God puts a father in your life to teach you how to love God and respect him as well. You have really done that. I am always proud to show you off and talk about you. 

Songs like "Butterfly Kisses", "Cinderella" and "I Loved Her First" make me want to bawl my eyes out because I was/am your little girl. I know it's hard to swallow but you have to let me go when I walk down that aisle to Vin. But I am never gone from you. It's just time that I start my own family. 

God knew it would be tough on you and look at what he has given you. A darling little girl that you can love on for the next 17 years until she is ready to spread her wings and fly like I did. How you taught me to fly. 

I owe so much to you. You taught me how to stand up for myself, how to survive, and how to be a Godly woman. I love you so much. You may not have put the stars in the sky but I think you helped God when he did.

Love your Princess,

Dear Momma Charlene,

Until last year I called you Aunt Charlene. You are the only woman I would let marry my daddy without a fight. I know you will be perfect for him to grow old with now.

You helped me so much when we were living in Seattle. You told mom many times how awful of a mom she was being. I cannot thank you for the times that you covered for me. You helped me realize there was more to life than hunting and fishing and Disney.

You should feel proud and ashamed. You were the first person to ever put a make-up brush in my hand. Actually I believe it was a sponge but still you were the one that got me interested in wearing make up when I was in the 8th grade. I won't forget that little green compact full of powder and showing it off to my friends. Even the ones where their parents would let them wear make they bought them drug store. I had Clinque. I felt powerful. 

You helped me become a girly girl and I am forever thankful for that! You mean the world to me! Stormie is one lucky girl to have you and Dad together from the get go!

Love Always,

Dear Carolina,

I personally like to believe that you are the reason I am half nuts and the reason I like to try daring things. You make me realize how boring life can be and you hate that like I do so I go crazy trying to make life have some color. 

The years and the time we have spent trying to cause chaos and create memories. I cherish every stupid thing we have done together because I know when we grow old we can look back and laugh and laugh. Heck we already do and we aren't even 25 yet! We have so many more years of craziness. 

Thank you for always being my rock. I love you tremendously.


Dear Mrs. Brown,

I owe my teaching career to you. You helped me excel at everything in college. I am always looking back on the handouts and teaching cheat sheets you gave me back when I was in elementary school and told you I wanted to become a teacher like you. 

I was amazed when you found me my freshman year at UA and wanted to have lunch. You really sparked my interest in teaching all over again and I knew I had found my calling. What most people agonize over you helped me make my mind up when I was still very young. 

I am always going to remember you. I promise to come see you next time I am in Tuscaloosa! We can have Starbucks and sandwiches like the last time.


Dear Walt Disney,

I am forever grateful for your dream and the courage you had to pursue them when everyone was telling you that you couldn't do it. It has always given me hope and courage for myself to pursue dreams that no one thought was possible. 

I will never forget that the entire company was started by a mouse. I love that mouse dearly. I have loved all of your characters through the years. I believe that the company would make you proud in one respect and totally disgusted in another.

I can honestly say you that your brand is the brand that has impacted my life the most!


Fresh Start Challenge Day 24: Prayer Does Work

I just told +Jessica about this a few nights ago, but it was a very powerful story for me because it was instant prayer answering even if I wasn't ready for the answer the first time.

My last relationship was in a terrible rocky stage. Him and his ex had talked about what went wrong in their relationship one day when she didn't have anyone to help take care of herself and their son. Now the grumpy girl inside of me was screaming "HELLO SHE IS A SINGLE MOM, YOU FREAKING SUCK IT UP CUPCAKE!" So red flags were screaming at me that he is at his ex's house, basically having reconciliation. He is telling me that there is nothing happening between them. (Later I found out she kissed him.)

So I had to get away from everything. I went to the mountains for a getaway before I went to Disney for Carolina's birthday. He told me he was going out with some friends. I was okay with that. I shouldn't have been. Strangely his "best friend" even asked me what if he wasn't with friends but with his ex. I told her she was nuts.

Sunday morning after he spent the out with friends I prayed that God would show me how to get out of the relationship because I didn't feel like there was much there anymore. That night my ex told me he wasn't with his friends he was with his ex and he slept with her. I was shocked to begin with, hurt, then angry, then calm. I forgave him. I told him I could look past it. He was dumbfounded. His ex was dumbfounded. Honestly, I was shocked myself that I was willingly to look past that.

Another week and I prayed again in the chair at church in Florida because I felt off. That night he didn't answer me for a long time. I figured he was having fun with his sun and then it was after the time and then I started to panic.

He finally told me we were done. To begin with I was devastated, and after about 30 minutes I let go. I realized my prayers had been answered. I realized this is what I had been wanting since I was in London. Yes, for a few days I moped. It was something I had grown used to having in my life. But I was at Disney and you can't mope around too much at Disney. God had a plan. He put me in Disney, took away what was killing my heart and set me free in Disney.

God has done some amazing things but those answer to prayers is what still stands out to me.

Fresh Start Challenge Day 23: Just A Small Town Girl

  1. Pepperidge Farm Goldfish anything makes me happy! So does Annie's Home Grown anything!
  2. I like wearing mix matched socks, especially from Little Miss Matched.
  3. I have to have it cold! I will seriously keep the AC on 67 just to wear leggings and sweatshirt in July.
  4. I don't like chocolate cake or chocolate frosting. I can eat it but I don't like it. 
  5. Roaches scare me more than spiders.

Tell Me a Story

Berenstain Bears

I freaking love these bears! I loved the TV cartoons of them too! I have several one of them on DVD. I love the books though! Super cute and adorable!

Miss Nelson Is Missing!

I am pretty sure this was my kick start to wanting to become a teacher. I loved this book so much. It was always fun to read about how she tricked them and how well behaved they were. Face it going through school we all had subs that were nightmares or real sweet and let you get away with anything!

The Baby Sitters' Club

I was a huge fan! Omg I was literally in the fan club! (Just like I was the Boxcar Children's fan club too!) I loved these books so much! I read them all. I learned so much from them about life and about babysitting!

American Girl Series

This was the beginning of my London obsession! Omg I love the Molly series! I even had the doll! But I loved the Samantha series too. Oh jeez I just loved them all. The series of the different girls was just fascinating! I cannot wait to pass these stories on to my daughters


No no no! Disney did this book completely wrong! Omg this was a back up to Harry Potter series for me! I still go back and read these series and no I do not image Disney's crappy version of these books!

Amelia Bedelia 

I loved how crazy this woman was with her crazy thinking. My favorite was definitively her Christmas book. Where she put a mirror on top of the tree so everyone could be a "star."

Junie B. Jones

This child was me! I loved her! I love reading her books still. Just how crazy and messy and awesome she was! It was kind of like me and Carolina growing up!

Green Eggs and Ham

This was the only reason I liked going to the doctor. My mom hated Dr. Seuss and didn't buy any of his books for her kids and so when we would be in there I would make her read this too me as blackmail or I would scream and cry.

Richard Scarry's Biggest Word Book Ever!

I was obsessed with this book! I seriously would spend hours looking at this book. I think it was because it had everything. I did like the cartoon on tv about this man's world as well. But this book gah it is amazing!

She-Ra Princess of Power

I wasn't an 80s baby but my dad loved He-Man and She-Ra and he passed the love onto me. For years I thought I was the only one my age that knew who She-Ra and He-Man were and then I found the people I hang out with now.

Fresh Start Day 22: It Returns

What If It Returns

My brother having cancer scares me to death. He doesn't have one that is easy to treat. Hence why it has been 6 years now. That's over half of his life people. He hasn't been able to play soccer or little league. His joy has come from seeing us in his hospital room and us toting him around Disney World when he is able to do so.

Right now at the moment he is so close to remission. No there is no cancer cells but there are spots on him that are still for concern. He got to go on his Make A Wish Request. I have had several people ask me didn't that mean he was dying. No it doesn't. In fact, more children get their wish granted when they are more healthy. The child doesn't have to be terminal at that point. 

But every day the devil grabs my thoughts for a brief second and makes me wonder, what if it returns today? What if it returns in the next scans? What if he gets leukemia that can't be beat after having Neuroblastoma? 

I just pray and give it to God but sometimes it's difficult, especially on the days I know he isn't feeling well. 

Put It On Repeat (And I Can't Count)

Bitch - Meredith Brooks

Fresh Start Challenge Day 21: Money Talks

Perk of living by yourself? No arguments unless you count arguing with the dogs that they can't have anymore treats.

But in reality the last time I had a hint of an argument was arguing with Chris that he didn't have to pay for my food when I had lunch with him and Odette!

So it wasn't a terribly bad argument at all and I am glad for that! I don't like arguing too much anyhow but when I do it's bad..

Greetings from Florida

You've Got Style!

Okay so I am in Orlando but I miss watching the Golden Girls with Vin and this makes me smile! I love this jingle! I love Sophia dancing it makes me think of my mewmaw! 

It's finally here! What I have been working for and towards for over a year! I officially work with Disney World! It came so quickly! It seems like only yesterday I was in London getting the news! (Seriously I think Disney likes to give my information while traveling to places besides Disney World to remind me to come home!) Now here I am curled up in my townhouse. 

I love my townhouse here! It's simply breathtaking! I have palm trees!!!! This was way better than any condo or apartment I was looking at when I first started thinking about this adventure! I love that I bought it and it's gorgeous. It's huge for a townhouse! I have two living rooms, a kitchen, a dining/breakfast room, 4 bedrooms. One bedroom has been converted into an office though. I have a pool! Seriously a pool! I may never come home to Alabama. Just kidding I have to go home!

The townhouse is in a security neighborhood. You have to go through a gate to get to me. Meaning you will be on camera if you come to my house. That makes me feel so comfortable and secured. Though trust me, Phil, Shadow, and Syn came with me, not to mention Sliver and Gleam also found their way into my bags. So I am well protected even without the tag-a-longs. My dogs London and Theo are also with me. Theo is used to Florida. He has spent many trips at the Disney World dog resort. But this is an experience that we were prepared for since we spent most of last summer in London together.

Time here in Florida makes me excited. Granted I am more hot but it's not near as humid as Alabama. Granted it's still humid but I can handle straight heat better than with humidity. The experience of working for Disney is worth all the heat, sweat, and pain. I am trying to build endurance. It reminds me of trying out for the DCC again and this time I intend to excel in every aspect. 

Training is in full for me. I brought my bike and all of my work out gear. I am still trying to find a gym for days that I know it's not safe to work out outside. The rest of the time I will be biking and running through the neighborhood. So this will be a good summer for working out for me!

Having inspiration to blog again has made me so excited. I know I have slacked off a lot since I had to take some personal time. Now that I am away from distractions and stressful subjects and things my head is totally clear and I know what I want to do with my blog. 

I will be doing Disney posts once a week. While we are on the subject of Disney; I am turning our Disney trip in April into one long post instead of a series. I also plan to continue the challenges and Etsy blogs as well. Currents will be returning and more personal blogs will become a constant as well. Of course any requests that I have been asked to do will be done as well.

Come the fall Binder Series and Baby Series will return. Also coming in September my Bridal journey will begin as well. If you have any ideas that you would like to see me do please let me know! I love being there for all of you!

Hebrews 13:8

Fresh Start Challenge Day 19: I'll Be There For You When The Rain Starts to Pour

I can't help it! There are about twelve people who always make me feel better! Even if it is short lived!!!!

Wayne - No other preacher is like him. He drinks (doesn't get drunk) plays video games, and he is always there to be real with you. He doesn't act like everything is together for him just because he has the Lord. He doesn't talk about his past like everything is hunky dory. He is honest and upfront with everything.

Frankie - The only thing crummy about this guy is the crumbs on him. He is hilarious when people piss him off because he becomes a huge smart ass and it's hilarious. I love his wood working. He is has this way about him for making you feel like everything is peaceful. If he was a vampire he would be like Jasper. *Shudders* Pretend I didn't just make a Twilight reference! And please forgive me.

Nate - Newest one to add to the bunch. But he is such a sweetie and has a hilarious sense of humor which you can so tell he is a McLachlan. It really shows sometimes when he is pissed and he bows up. I would not want to be on the other end of the pissed off furrowed brow look he gives.

Ridge - My mini brunette twin. We are both quite evil and we love revenge. Don't mess with the ones we love because we both have a knack for getting you back without you knowing it was us. You life will feel like crap one day just remember we may have caused it. 

Lillian - God love her is a nut when you get her out of her quiet shell. She absolutely nuts. She is another one that is easy to think she loves you only for her to actually be making fun of you with her wording choice. She has zero tolerance for stupid people. 

Odette - What can I say about this girl? Omg that she is freaking awesome! She is like the momma hen. Going after us, especially her son and husband is the wrong idea. She is totally crazy and hilarious in her own prime and kind. She is mean as a snake though and can reduce a person to tears in a matter of minutes if you piss her off. 

Mary Ann - A.K.A MIA. Glitter, sparkle, shine. It's hard to believe that this girl ever considered killing herself. That's why when you see emo people you know they are doing it for attention to get noticed so they seem dark and sad. MIA's kind is different these are the ones that really need the care and help. 

Edwin - Seen him naked so many times through the course of my life I know how many veins run through him on his left thigh! Childhood friend that I can't get rid of no matter how hard I never try. He is will always be around me and I love that because he is like a brother to me.

Jessica - This girl? *SQUEALS* Is seriously awesome! She is smart. Beautifu, yes beautiful, don't make me beat you. She is funny. And you won't find one more loyal or supportive of you. She and I became friends while I was dating her ex, and Odette's ex. Yeah don't judge me on my lack of judgement. Jessica is easily one of my closest friends. We go to each other about anything and everything.

Carolina - God felt the need to make us cousins because no way in hell would our parents have been able to handle us as twins. It was bad enough on everyone as cousins! We know all secrets and everything about each other.

Chris - I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for this guy. He has saved my life twice now. We are so close that people think we are dating but they couldn't farther from the true. We just are really close friends that have proved what lengths we will go for each other. It's a bond I don't recommend people testing.

Vin - Even when he was the dork that lived with Edwin we were close. Now? This man better never get tired of me because it's the long road for us. He is my best friend and my world.

These people no matter what make me smile even when I feel like that I can't go on.

Almonds with Cranberries, Honey & Sea Salt by Sahale Snacks - Vin loved this. He said it was perfect. That it was sweet and salty didn't weigh him down.

Aqua Spa Relax Body Creme - I hated this smell. I know I am weird. I cannot stand the smell of lavender though. It stinks to me. So this is not relaxing to me. I gave mine to my neighbor who loves lavender.

Ciate London Paint Pot - I know GLOSSYBOX sent out a bunch of different colors this month and I am so happy with this one.This shimmery burnt copper called Espardrilles, works much better for me.

Etta Says Duck Meat Treats - These have always been a hit around here as well! They are made from USA sourced ducks and are perfect for pups with grain or protein allergies.

Mr. Barksmith’s Carrot Cake Smoothie - Theo and London are coming with me to Florida so I am taking this with us so they don't get over heated.

Barkworthies Junior Bully Stick - And, as usual, a Barkworthies! We get one every month and the dogs love them, but well, we get one every month. Then again, they do love them.

Citrus Lane Art & Music

Hohner Fish Guiro - Even if I am a teacher. I forget how crucial music is to a child. Well not music but them making music. So I am leaving this in our playroom.

Green Tones Boat Whistle - Miss Luna loved this. Perhaps I should get the train one for Rain. I like that idea!

Hohner Kids Tube Shaker - Again this is going into our playroom for instruments. I rarely get a chance to think about music instruments for them. I hope my upstairs tenants don't mind.

Hohner Kids Colored Tambourine - I loved this box so much! We really need more and more items like this!

Eco-Kids Dough -Yes! I have been wanting to try eco-dough for ages. I love this, love the colors and can’t wait to order more.

Citrus Lane Mealtime

Dispensing Spoon by Boon - I love these! I have some already! They are amazing with Luna and eating. I am giving these to my stepmom.

Skip Hop Owl Bib - We have the exact same bib, but in a different animal. We usually use it for painting or other messy projects because it wipes cleaning easier than the cloth ones. I was excited to get the owl one!

Munchkin Trainer Cups  - Hello perfect cups for Rain and Luna!

Boon Clutch - Perfect keeping up with sippy cup and bottle parts! I highly recommend this!

Innobaby Packin’ SMART Stack-N-Seal - Snack containers always come in handy and no matter how many we have, it’s never enough. We are always running out!

ah goo baby The Bottle Strap - I wasn't thrilled with this so I am passing it along.

Pijon Box

Bombas Sock Collection - OMG love. Vin has a few pairs of these from one of his Birchbox boxes and I have always been jealous of them. No seriously. Plus, I am in constant need of socks. Constant need. It’s insane how quickly I lose or destroy them. 

Inlet Nectar Customizable Sunglasses - I also love these! Totally fun, but not overly funky or crazy. These are something I would pick up from one of those sunglasses street vendors because they are so fun.

Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars - Everyone in this house loves these and it will be a battle to see who can get to them first! I hope I win. If you haven’t tried them I totally recommend them.

La Fresh Travel-Lite Antibacterial Wipes - These are headed straight in my bag! The kids get into so much and anything I can do to make things a little less germ is good. I am not a total germ freak, but even I will wipe down certain things.


Bumkins Wet / Dry Bag - Could this scream Disney anymore? (Okay maybe a Disney print!) These is going to be great for pool time! I am sooooo excited about this!

Kandoo Travel Pack Wipes - I have read way too many articles about flushable wipes, so we won’t be flushing these at our house, but we can always always use wipes.

Interactive Kids Soft Shape Puzzle -This set includes 8 different puzzle which are perfect for the bathtub. I am always looking for new bathtub toys that don’t get all moldy and nasty and this fits the bill! Rain and Luna will love these! I am taking them to Florida with me as a surprise when they come to visit.

Happy Yogis Organic Fruit - Ran loves these and they disappear quickly.

Baudelaire Essence Soap Bar - Gifting. Bar soap just isn't a good thing for me.

Mother's Day Glossybox

Caldrea Body Lotion - Totally love! Caldrea has a great line of products. Right now I am using a body wash from them as featured above in the regular box!

Bellapierre Cosmetics Official Lipstick - It's definitly not my favorite. It's a nude pink. The color is called Envy. I will probably put this in my giveaway pile.

Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer - I always feel like I should put something in my hair before I dry it and here it is. It helps prevent breakage and and provides 24-hour lasting volume. I can’t tell if it’s helping with the breakage yet, but I do feel like it helped with volume.

ModelCo Fibre Lashxtend - I have received this in a previous box and I like it, but it’s not my favorite ever mascara. I will use it though.

Pureology Serious Colour Care Fresh Approach Dry Condition - Perfect Disney hair!!! Yay!

Skin Inc. Custom Brightening Serum ($135): Yes, this really is $135. I am dead serious. It was designed to tackle skin dullness and tiredness and was a custom blend just for GLOSSYBOX. I am going to use this for a month straight and I am expecting magic.

All totaled I came up with a value of $230 for the Limited Edition Mother’s Day GLOSSYBOX. Considering that the box was only $40, this was an incredible value.
