Happy Holidays

I am still in awe that 2011 has come and went.  This year has flown by and I am feeling so blessed beyond what I deserve.  I have enjoyed reading all of my friends, and blog friends posts, I am so thankful for technology and the great opportunities it brings. 

As a result of following my blog friends I have found a new interest in cooking and crafting.  It is the little things that bring me the greatest joy.  Hope you all have a fabulous holiday, Merry Christmas to you all!

Wish you nothing but happiness and lots of love for the year to come.

I'm Cheesy ok, I know!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

So, I am totally the type of person that gets excited for cheesy things! Like St. Patrick's Day today, it is also my nephew Chance's bday, so a shout out to him! But I get ready for work and come decked out with my bright green polo, green eye liner, green bracelets and even decide to buy some scratchers for my office coworkers with a little note that says, "Happy St. Patrick's Day, Hope you get Lucky" followed by my demand for a cut of their winnings! ha ha ha.
I love days like today. A silly reason to celebrate and change things up. I have been sick these past few weeks, but just because cheesy holidays like St. Patty's Day I am in a fantastic mood. I think its funny that these small, insignificant days, that are annoying to some, bring out a deeper happiness in me. It's not because I am Irish, or drink beer, its just because its fun, and another reason to celebrate something. And actually, most other holidays are the same for me and especially birthdays. Most of my friends can atest to this. I LOVE birthdays and not because I like parties, which I do love by the way, but because everyone should stop whining about their age. Who cares how old you are now, and what the world would say you should have accomplished by now, or how your body is not settling the way you had hoped. Birthdays are a time to celebrate that fact that you were born, and have lived a life that brought you to this year. Good or bad, you choose what perspective and outlook you will have. I am choosing the glass half full! The sun is shinning and the world is a disaster. I have come to know that I will be a lot more helpful and received if I am a positive motivator for change and action rather than a negative lazy person.
I am learning a lot about myself and honestly, today is one of those days where I have been enlightened that I like to celebrate, bring a smile to some one's face and make people feel like someone is thinking about them. I know there is so much more to life then these days but I am finding that sometimes it is the little things that make life worth while.

So Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone, pass on a smile and celebrate today!

Happy Valentines Day!

Yesterday I spent my entire day baking sweets finishing my valentine cards and spending time with my family. I am positive I get more excited for this day than anyone I know. Its a day that combines my favorite colors with images of hearts, flowers, candy and jewelry. Material items I know, but they still bring a smile to my face.

I just LOVE Valentine's Day, not because I have an amazing lover, or am hopeful to receive beautiful flowers, but because its one more excuse to celebrate those we love in our lives. More importantly, Today I celebrate, family, friends and the simple things that bring me happiness. Everyone says, today is commercialized by hallmark and flower shops as a way to exploit us. I beg to differ, so much of life is perspective and today my spin on Valentines, is full whole heartedly embracing the celebration!

So I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines Day~ I challenge you to do a small gesture of kindness to someone today, a smile at a stranger, waving at an old man driving next to you or opening a door for the person walking in behind you.

Much love,

Keep the perspective....

Today I am sitting at work on my lunch break, checking my blogspot account. This has become a daily thing, since I have come to rather enjoying reading all my friends' posts about crafts, life, love and thier family. Sad in a sense that we keep up through such distant means of communication, but such a blessing at the same time.

I am reminded that right now what feels to me as life's frustration is SO nothing to be complaining or stressing over. I am repremanding myself for become to self focused, I have many blessings in my life. I'm truely humbled by the strength and positive perspective of those who are facing far greater mountains of trials than my own. SO today, I am greatful~ I am not perfect and my life is no where near perfect, but I have today!

I'm doing it mommy!

I feel horrible that I have not been blogging much this summer. Time has gone by so fast with a week trip to my sister's house at the river and then the rest of my family gearing up for school. I have to admit its kinda surreal to not have to worry about waking up in time for my class or making sure I have all the books I need. But I do miss college, its a bittersweet feeling being DONE! So the next big event in my life is that next month I will be moving out! YAYYYYY~ I can't not even begin to express how excited I am to have my own place. I am moving out with one of my good friends to a condo in YL ( so I didnt make it far) but nevertheless I am doing it! I realize my life will change dramaticlly when I am no longer able to just go on weekend adventures. My life will become a simple life, which for me could be the struggle. So keep your fingers crossed that all goes well. Also I will be seeking furniture since I only have my bathroom and bedroom stuff so keep your eyes open! HOpe everyone has a great day enjoy the sunshine!

Class of 2009!

It does feel amazing to know that I am really done with college. No more busy work or dealing with professors who just dont get it. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton yesterday morning. After an early morning meeting time, I met up with my friends from PRSSA which is Public Relations Student Society of America. Getting involved in that club was a great decision that allowed me to get involved on campus and make friends at school. Although making friends is not a difficult task for me it was weird being at a campus where so many people just came for thier classes and left. Anyways, graduation was so fun and I am really glad that I decided to walk. It was nice to say goodbye to friends and even catch up with old friends. And surprise surprise my day was filled with smiles, flowers ( i got a flowers and my mom arranged flowers for my party!) and a beautiful day of sunshine!

One day when I learn how to put pictures up here I will upload some from graduation. After my graduation I had a little BBQ open house thing and a lot of my friends and family were able to make it. Overall, graduation was an amazing experience although I did lose my voice last night. SO thank you to everyone who has spoked uplifting words of encouragement, listened to me vent about my busy crazy life and loved me with all my weaknesses. Thank you thank you! I love you all!
