Challenge and Change

Whats going on with you all on this fine day

So while I was in New Jersey visiting family... I found this beautiful cocktail dress in Windsor, the back is open and is simply sexy.  I have been waiting for a time to wear it but that time has yet to come because it is very revealing.  I decided to wear it as a skirt and it turned out really cute. I have learn to not be afraid to alter articles of clothing.  If it does not work change it. Do not be so quick to throw things out.  I officially challenge you to take a look into your closets with a renewed imagination and creative mind.  I am sure there are things that a little alteration can make brand new again. Try it out and let me know what you did not have to buy again.

Simply Things

Hey Guys 
Hope you are having a great day 
So I was thinking about our move the other day and thought wow, how time flies. I can not believe that four months have already passed of us living in overseas. I can say we are adjusting very well.  We are almost finished with the house, joined a church and have began great friendships. Right now we are working on speaking the language.  It is a lot harder for me then it is for Frog but I refuse to be left behind. I really love living in Germany.  The people, the food and culture is amazing. I can't wait to continue to enjoy this journey with my boo thang.

Bundle of Joy

Hey Friends,
I know, I know.... I have been really "slacking on my pimping" when it comes to blogging but I am back in full affect. 

Its been a busy few weeks. I have to telling you guys about the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. Good friends of Frog and I, had a precious baby girl about a week ago and I was able to be a part of it. Frog and I missed the actual birth by an hour (which was okay because I am really not "about that life") but I was able to hold her right after. She was perfect; just tiny and sweet. She opened her eyes and smiled as to say "I am here to conqueror the world". I could not compose myself... I was so filled with joy because I knew she would be in great hands and loved by so many. Honestly, I am in my twenty's and I have never held a child less than 6 months old. So it was even more cool for that very reason.

Lets Talk About It 101

Hey Loves,
So Frog has decided to respond to your question. 
Photos By Frog
Why is it when you do everything for a guy (cook, clean, wash clothes, etc) and it still seems like it's not enough like he's still out there looking for more. What shall I do ?

Let me say that I do not know your story and I am answering your question based on the way I am reading it. Simply put: this is only my opinion. So when you say that you do everything for a "guy", my first thought is that you two are not in a relationship since you didn't clarify. Well if you two have not clearly set boundaries for what you have, then he probably feels that he has no obligation to stop looking. Men know what they want regardless of what anyone will tell you. We may not always know the right words to describe what we want, but as far as knowing what we want....we know. My advice to you would be to sit this guy down and make sure that the two of you are on the same page. It sounds like you are ready for a relationship with this individual, and if this is the case, let him know. Some people feel no need to commit if they do not have to. Its like the old saying goes: "Why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free?" I hope this helps your situation.

Please feel free to ask any questions you have... What else would you like to ask?

Sky Is The Limit

Hey Guys,
How are you doing today? 
Have you ever looked back on life and thought of how blessed you are? I am sitting here feeling overwhelmed with appreciation. I have done some stupid and reckless things in the past but I live today with knowledge from past mistakes. I have endured many challenges and through it all I remain. Just thinking about how I should not be here today but somehow, someway God has brought me through it all. I just feel like today is just a day to be grateful for a the positive things and not be so concern about the negative. Remembering that regardless of what I am going through, it too shall pass. 

Thank you for allowing me to experience pain 
that's the only way I learned my strength
Thank you for allowing me to be hurt 
that's the only way I learned to love
 Thank you for allowing me to be misjudged  
that's the only way I learned to prove myself 
Thank you for allowing me to be disrespected
 that's the only way I learned to respect myself like a lad. 
Thank you for allowing me to live 
that's the only way I learned to love

Deciding to get into shape or live a healthier lifestyle can be a big decision but well worth it. However, many people fail at trying live healthier lifestyle.  This is due to different reasons. Here are several tips to maintaining your workout routine and to living a healthier lifestyle:
       * Set Goals! Ensure your goals are obtainable and realistic.
*Eat clean, and drink plenty of water
     * Have a workout plan.  Don’t go to the gym without a plan, you just set yourself up for failure.
 *Find exercises, sports, or workout classes you like. These things will motivate you to want to work out and live a healthier lifestyle like 
Zumba classes, Aerobic classes, Swimming, Crossfit, Cycling, etc.

Just remember starting a workout routine, eating clean and living a healthier lifestyle won’t give you results overnight. Give your body time to change. Starting a new routine can take up to six weeks for person body to adjust and show results.

I wrote this poem the week we met years ago, I smile when I read this because of the current manifestation how of our life. Everything that was perceived as impossible has become possible with you by my side and with God as our foundation.  You inspired me then and you continue to inspire me everyday.

Good for my Health

Would it be too forward if i told you my thoughts
Or is it unladylike to present my self as such
endless moments of silence have passed by
But grateful for every moment of awkward hellos and unwanted goodbyes
Wanting so much to let you know
But honestly my heart can not afford another low blow
If birds can sing and flowers can bloom
Why cant I tell you that I want you to take me to the moon
And back in time cook you a meal
I am the bona fide deal
Catering and treating you as the king you were born to be
showing you that this is not plagiary
We are the authors of this story and the writers of this sweet melody
Looking in your eyes, Wanting so much for this song to be complete
Dancing into the sunset, intricate moves that seem so complex
Become as easy as you. plus me. equals we
Forever recognizing you as my baby
But since I am consumed
By pride, fright and the confused
Feeling that the past has set my present life's tone
I will leave my thoughts right here in this poem
And send you a thank you
For unknowingly being my muse
By: Mscinternational

I can not believe time has passed so quickly and today is a day I can celebrate with my my heart beat, my rib, the man of my dreams. Everything I am is because of the love you have given me, everything tear and heartbreak I have experienced was to prepare me for these very moment of true everlasting love. Happy One Year Anniversary and Infinity to go.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always persevere."
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
