Autism Month

I'm currently watching The Talk... I catch it every so often and today they are discussing autism for Autism Awareness Month.

I don't have a personal story to tie to this disease. Noone real close that has been affected. I have however watched and read a lot of things discussing it. Holly Robinson Peete from The Talk has a son with husband Rodney Peete that was diagnosed with autism at 3 years of age. Her story really touched me and I know there are many of you that probably did not see her story. I encourage each of you to Hulu the show. Both Peete's run the Holly Rod Foundation which helps people with both Parkinsons and Autism. The website is www.hollyrod.org
For any parent out there who have children with autism or have concerns about their child's behavior can visit the site for more information. The internet is a beautiful thing in regards to information... parents 20 years ago didn't have the tools of the world wide web to find information they needed. It's out there and I felt it was important to share! Please pass the info on :)

Tomorrow is Autism Awareness Day so tonight and tomorrow night major attractions throughout the US will 'Light it up Blue' to celebrate autism awareness! You can find out more info on that- www.lightitupblue.org. Be sure to wear your blue!

Again this was all from watching an episode of The Talk so be sure to visit their website- thetalk.com

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food?

What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot....

As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a sch…

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage #VoxBox

*This is a sponsored blog from Garnier Nutrisse and Influenster as I received this product to test for free

So recently I was selected to receive a new #VoxBox from Influenster of a beautiful light brown (#630 Toffee Nut) hair dye from Garnier Nutrisse. I have used this brand a few times in the past so I really had no worries with trying out this new one. I set up my phone and did my first "unboxing" video which was kinda fun and something I think I may do more of.



Inside were:



After mixing them as instructed I kept the dye on for the recommended time of 30 minutes in going from a dark blonde color to this light brown. I must admit I was a little worried the color would properly cover my head as I was applying; the bottle felt so light but I ended up with just a little more than enough and I still applied that to be sure. My hair as you can see is just at my neck length so I imagine if it was longer than shoulder length you'd be better off grabbing two boxes to be sure. …
