Day 15 of 28: What Is Your Idea Of A “Perfect” Day?

My idea of a perfect day?

This day would involve a nice massage, pedicure, eye brow waxing, bbq (that my husband cooked), and friend/family time!!!

Any day that involved any of the above things is an awesome day but if I can have them all in one day I believe that it would be golden and it would be as close to a perfect day as it could get.

Now here is an explanation as to why all of these things would make my day “perfect”:

-Massage… Well of course this would aid in making my day perfect because I would be relaxed, nothing would be able to bother me after I know that my entire body is relaxed from an (at least) one hour massage by the greatest massage therapist I know. Sorry, I can’t share my sources (but if you’re in Tulsa I’ve got you)!

-Pedicure… Ha! All I can say is we as women love to have our feet looking and feeling good, why not add a pedicure to aid and assist in the magic.

-Eye Brow Waxing… For me this makes me feel like I am the prettiest woman in the world. If when I look at my own face and see the magic after a waxing I know others will too.

-BBQ… Nick makes the best food known to man (in my opinion) and it would be just amazing to be able to receive a home cooked meal from him (which I normally always do). If I was told that I could have whatever I wanted for a day this is a meal that I would ask for and a meal that would satisfy me tremendously.

-Friends/Family…Friends and family help me to feel complete. I enjoy fellowship and intelligent conversation with others. Most of the friends and family we have already are parents and sometimes don’t have a lot of time to hang out. However, when we can get together and have a good time that is a “PERFECT” day.

Day 11 of 28: What Things Have You Learned From Your Parents?

The things that I have learned from my parents are: 

-Speak when you walk into someone’s house or into a room where they are because it shows respect and can spark conversations. 

-Talk nicely because when you don’t it makes others uncomfortable and ultimately makes them not want to be bothered with you. 

-Work out your problems because running is for cowards. Nothing is meant to be easy and you always fight for what you love and what you believe in.

These are just the few things that jumped out to me right now, but truth is I learn from them consistently and this post will continue on for days if I try to dissect everything they have ever taught me in this near 28 years.

Day 9 of 28: If You Could Have Lunch W/ One Person Who Would It Be?!

Well well well. Truth is I would love to have lunch with a lot of people. However, at this very moment my heart and mind is focused on my mother-in-law. If I could orchestrate just One last lunch with her, her son, and myself I would do just that and it would be golden.

Mama ETOYCE carried so much joy no matter what the situation and taught me so much about being a mother just by the simple things she did or did not do.

So, if you weren’t sure before I’ll say it again. “If I could have lunch with one person it would be with my resting mother in love.”

Until Next Time… Live, Laugh, Love, and Be Strong, Because You’re Meant To Win

Day 4 of 28: What Is Your Favorite Childhood Memory?!

My favorite childhood memory is waking up every Sunday morning getting ready for church and waiting on my grandma to pick me up each and every time. 

Each and every week my brother Chris and I would go to church and spend time with our friends, learn about God, and see the greatness of the Lord flow through my grandma as she sang in the choir. 

Childhood memories are great and they show the legacy of those before us and the future of our legacy. However, if it is not the legacy that we desire for our future we also have the opportunity to change that and create our own. Childhood memories have made me the woman that I am today and will make my children the adults that they become.
