Sunday Morning!

It’s Sunday morning. I don’t know about anyone else, but this is one of the most PEACEFUL days of my life.

I can count on the beauty of a quiet ride to Starbucks (Sunday morning routine is to get my Daddy breakfast and my coffee), and just to be alone w my thoughts of praise.

These past few weeks have been trying, traumatic, troubling yet triumphant. God won’t allow me to lose, because He created me in His own image…a winning image. I smile w the peace of God covering me and my loved ones, and I’m ever so grateful for His grace and mercy. He constantly stands up inside of me, when I’m at my weakest…and His arms have never been closed to me…that’s why I praise Him; because He’s already done enough! If He NEVERRRRRRR does another thing for me, I have 34–almost 35–yrs worth of blessings. I could be dead, on drugs, unemployed, transportation-less, homeless, hungry, poor, UNLOVED, alone…but I’m the opposite of ALL of those things. I have TOO MUCH to thank God for…

Spiritually Maturing w Every Keystroke,

Product Review-Carol's Daughter

I am elated to report that my first experience w Carol’s Daughter products is a great one!

I purchased “Tui”; a leave-in conditioner in the Carol’s Daughter line of hair care.

I go through MANY different phases w my hair, however in the summer, I typically ride w micro braids or my natural short curls. Since I’ve decided to rock a super short and curly style, I wanted a product that would be light in my hair, and one that smelled great! I found that in this marvelous leave-in from Carol’s Daughter!

My review coding:

Hot Pink Nails: MUST HAVE
Pale Yellow Nails: It’s cool
Chipped Blue Nails: You CAN live without it
NO POLISH: Waste of money

I give this “Hot Pink Nails”!

Restaurant Review-Corner Bakery Café

I am a foodie (a size four foodie at that), and a true weakness of mine? BREAD!! I tell you what…Cornery Bakery Café never disappoints on the croissants. They also have sandwiches (I.e. ham, roast beef, chicken salad), a wide variety of other entrees, pastries, desserts, etc., but I’m stuck on their delicious croissants!

If ever you are near a Corner Bakery, STOP IN!

Today has been such an amazingly peaceful day! I was looking forward to today coming and being rid of a few toxins, and it’s OVER!!

On another note, I went to church:

And later I’m headed out for a Slurpee!!

Today has been amazing! I was able to personally put a smile on someone’s face today, and that’s all I care about! Smooth Sunday!!
