Take a leap


"There are many talented people who haven't fulfilled their dreams because they over thought it, or they were too cautious, and were unwilling to make the leap of faith." 
-James Cameron

Surprisingly, I did not have a hard time writing 2/29/12. People seemed to be a fairly decent mood today. Just hopping along towards the anticipation of a new month.

I came across these really cute leap year bookmarks. How fitting they have frogs on them.

(print your bookmarks here)
I am still in the process of reading The Help book, so I plan to print these froggies on card stock to hopefully inspire me to finish the novel faster. It is a good read, I just need to make more time to accomplish this task.

In parting, I hope today provided you with more insight to your dreams, a brighter tomorrow, and peace for the week to come.

Until next time,

Here's to always being your B.E.S.T!

Snoopy's Street Fair

I have joined the iPhone mania circle. This quite fancy phone has many features and applications. I have outgrown angry birds and look for apps that are a better waste of my time. (wink)

My current favorite is Snoopy's Street Fair.

In the beginning there is a lemonade stand operated by Charlie's sister Sally, his loyal dog Snoopy prancing around, and a few friends willing to spend money on this simple product. Upon earning more money, the player is able to fund their future expansions. This includes but not limited to: kissing booths, cotton candy, popcorn stands, and a jukebox.

Jamming to the Peanuts theme song...

What your Street Fair can look like.

What my Street Fair currently looks like.

Upgrading to the next level! (Yeah, we did it!)

Playing games are fun and a great way to keep the mind active. Some are more challenging than others. Although, I still resort back to my paper word searches, if I am going to have a phone that is equivalent to a new wardrobe, it should at the very least entertain me.

If you would like to see my street fair...my Referral Code is: T3JMW.

Sassy Sunday

Be Fashionable
Embrace Individuality
Stay Classy
Treat Yourself

I was a little more tired than usual today. A consequence of not hydrating my body with water. However, after watching the Oscars, I realized I still needed to post some of my favorite quotes for the last Sunday of February.

Country soul

As promised, I wanted to share my lovely country concert experience. I have to admit when asked what my favorite genre or type of music, county does not always come to mind.

However,  I am a firm believer that all types of music can bring joy to our lives. I enjoyed the performances of Scotty McCreery, The Band Perry, and Brad Paisley, but I really enjoyed their songs about women.

What a wonderful thing to write about! We truly are a mystery and we are also something to be admired. Place yourself on your pedestal my ladies, because that is where you should be.

Do not interpret this honor as a way to belittle others. It is more about your self-worth. When a man wants your time and more importantly your love, he should have to work for it.

Your time and affection should be appreciated. This is also true with your friends and family.

Chivalry is not dead. There are men that realize what women are worth. (Respect, honor, affection)

Men should be nothing less than charming princes. Women should always act appropriately for we all hold a title of princess.

Until next time,

Stay Classy 
There's a proper way to sneeze. With cold/flu season still present, let's all try to not pass on the germs. In the event you have to cough or sneeze cover your nose or mouth with your left hand.

Your right hand should be clean to open doors and shake hands. If you're not near a sink, use hand sanitizer and wash your hands as soon as possible.


Treat Yourself
Attend a concert. I had the opportunity to watch some amazing country performers. I'll post more soon. It was a great time to sit back and enjoy listening to very pretty voices. A treat that I'll treasure.

I hope your weekend brought much rest and delight. I hope this week brings new joys and aspirations.

Until next time,

Wandering heart

(credit)
"If you want to know where your heart  is, look where your mind goes when it wanders."

I spend a lot time self-reflecting and day dreaming. When I let my mind wander, I  think about my dream life. Not that I don't appreciate the one that I have...it's more about where I want my life to be.

I think about buying my first house, finishing my scrapbook, places I want to travel, and other things I want to create in my lifetime. My dream world provides perspective to my reality.

Obviously, if I'm dreaming about a journey I'm not there yet. My dream helps motivate me to learn how to get there. I believe that dreams offer us magic to create our own destinies.

For a purpose-driven life plan for your dreams to come true by discovering your passions and desires.

Until next time,

Experiment with new makeup. Write yourself a love note. Watch your favorite movie. Eat your favorite candy. Drink a sparkly drink. Paint your nails. 

Enjoy being a woman and do things that make you happy. & finally, for one day, try not to sweat the small stuff...because it's all small stuff.

Hopes & Promises

(credit)
I really enjoy early mornings. The quiet time I have to myself before getting ready for the day. The peaceful moments before the everyday hustle begins.

This is a special time where I make my personal hopes and promises. I always hope to have a good day. I always promise myself to do my best.

For when I have more time to mentally prepare for my day, I hope and promise for a few more things:

I hope for a peaceful commute to work. 
I promise to be more patient. 

I hope to make the most of my time. 
I promise to live today to the fullest.

I hope to cross off another item off my to-do list. 
I promise to not compare myself to others. 

I hope for my love ones safety. 
I promise to mind my thoughts and most importantly my words. 

Life gets crazy and we all get busy. But, it's important to reflect and focus on what really matters. I hope you have a special time to yourself to discover your personal hopes and promises.

Until next time,

Here's to always being your B.E.S.T!

Paper hearts

()
With all the fuzzy bears, candy hearts, and coconut-cherry filled chocolates, Valentine's Day can seem pretentious, rather than about appreciating the people you love. Although, I may not receive a fuzzy bear of my own, this is no reason to not like what the day stands for.

Instead, maybe cupid's arrow is meant for just one heart, rather than two. The one heart that holds and protects ones desires, hopes, and dreams.

Your heart.

I think the most important love is self-love. No one is going to love you, if you don't love yourself first.

I realize Valentine's Day is seven days away, but I don't plan on waiting for one day to love myself. This type of love should occur everyday.

So, write on your own paper heart a sweet something. Keep it safe and remind yourself everyday how special you really are.

Until next time,

Challenge: Sore Muscles
One of my goals for 2012 is to exercise regularly and work towards a lifetime of fitness. Working out has been a great stress relief, but the sore muscles, not so much. Just getting out of bed is a task. However, I have some remedies for anyone that needs post-workout relief.




Action: Finding relief
After each workout, complete your cool down and stretch. Seems pretty simple, (because it is).
Stretch your body




Take a bubble bath and relax.
Take a bubble bath with Epsom salt (Wine is optional)



Drink tea made to help the body heal.
Drink Yogi Green Tea Muscle Recovery


I keep Icy Hot in my cabinet at all times.
Put on before you go to bed. It will help soothe your muscles.
Icy Hot
