Bedroom redo....

I'm in the process of redoing my bedroom.
I've been in an orange & navy blue mood lately.
Geometric patterns.
I have a vibe in my mind,
hopefully it will all come together in the end
like I want it to.

I wasn't patient enough to wait for good lighting.

I still have some things to do.
Like get some new night stands.

And recover that little stool.

And see that little picture up on that wall?
That's an 11x14!
I thought it would be so much bigger and it is dwarfed on that wall!

So, I need a much larger picture or something for that wall.

I would hang this print over there,
But then I would have nothing to hang over by the floor mirror.
Plus, I think that would be a lot of navy happening in one small area.

It's all coming together though.


So, last night I threw a picture frame up in that troubled area that I meant for another area,
and I think it looks much better.  Don't you?

Once again, don't mind the lighting and I know things aren't perfect,
but I think that looks much better than the other frame
(which I moved over to the left wall).

Eventually that left wall will have a chest of drawers or something there.




"To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable
because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you."
~ C. S. Lewis

I'm willing, I'm just not there yet.
God has to work on my heart.


I can't fathom spending another minute of my energy devoted towards
the waste of time that just happened in my life.

So, onward and upward.

A few weeks ago,
I watched the above documentary on Netflix.
It is called, "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead."
Great title, huh? lol

It is about juicing.
I know what you're thinking...
Because that is what I was thinking. lol
And it is boring.
But, I couldn't believe the health benefits!
The guy started juicing because he was sick, and on all of these meds
(umm, hello!).
The added bonus was that he lost 82 pounds in 60 days.
I am not looking to lose weight like that
(maybe a little, but not like that),
but the health benefits would be awesome!

So, the other day, I ordered a juicer and a beginners juicing book
off of Amazon, and bought all kinds of fruits and veggies.
I picked the wrong time to start though,
because I was *not* in the right frame of mind.

I made one batch and was running to Jack in the Box
for a cheeseburger because I wanted comfort food. lol
It has been a rough week.

The other night the girls and I made an awesome recipe with strawberries,
grapes, carrots, romaine lettuce, celery & apples... it was SO good!

I think this weekend we will start really diving in.
I do know that I am not a fan of cucumbers, so I have to stay away
from those.
But I'm excited.
I wonder if I can stick with it.
I think I can.
I'm just worried about how expensive it is though.

lurve you, xoxo v.


Before and after....

This was my palm tree before my landscaper got his hands on it.

He said he just planned to remove 
"A little from the bottom that needed taken off."

When I got home, this is what I found...


I was NOT happy, to say the least.

He was already doing it for free because he had not shown
up when he was supposed to.
So I couldn't ask for my money back.

Short of gluing everything back on,
there is really nothing I could do
besides sit and stare.


Our whole backyard looks bare now!

Can we just start a new week already? LOL
Because I tell you,
sometimes all you can do is sit back and laugh!

Oh! AND.., I have pericarditis again.

Cut it out already!!!!

I love you Lord,
thank you for being so good to me.
I'm glad that through it all,
I can still see how amazing my life still is,
and that I know it will still continue to get even better.
And thank you for forgiveness and mercy...
from you and from others toward me (more on that later).





The more things change, the more they stay the same...

Never, EVER, again.

After learning a few things about his disloyal ways this week, 
Scott is OUT of here.
Here is some of what I had to say...

"You know what, I have my issues & I'm not perfect. But at least I can hold my head high & say that I walk in integrity. You can't. You betray people. Whether its by cheating, contemplating cheating, lying, flirting with other women...or men, withholding information, withholding affection , abandoning your partner, being selfish, talking crap behind your partners back, ignoring their phone calls, or whatever other myriad of ways you can think of to be disloyal. You can pull the wool over most people's eyes with witty stories or anecdotes, or being charming. But if they  actually open their hearts up to you & try to invest their lives in you, you poison them. I can say that I loved you better. I am flawed. But I am loyal. I am dedicated to figuring it out. I would rather die than cheat on someone. Or betray them. Betraying people is like breathing to you. I have too much self-respect to let you do that to me anymore. Kim & I are the only ones who probably knew you the best & stuck by you the most. Why don't you show some loyalty for once & quit being a jerk."

Kudos to you Kim...
you did it longer than I could.
I'm glad you're happy now.

lurve you, xoxo v.


Catch up vlog from June....

This is from the end of June,
but I just figured out how to get it off of my phone
because there was some issue with it.

And I don't know if there's still someone in my life
that I'm talking to or not.
I'll keep you posted on that front.
I'm considering myself very much single
until I figure it out.

lurve you, xoxo v.


Nice relaxing day....

I love getting a pedicure.
And this place gives the BEST pedicures!




Bruno Mars

The 70's throw-back is so hot.
Bruno lookin' all fly...

lurve you, xoxo v.
