Hey you guys!!! I've been a way for a little bit. Did you miss me??(smile) I gotta be honest, last week was soooo crazy busy for me but overall it was a Great week. I worked Vacation Bible School for the first time at my church and it was sooooo much fun. Our theme was Pandamanina "Where God is Wild About You!" Me along with the other volunteers transformed our church basement into a rainforest, the kids painted, and learn soo much about God's unconditional love for us. It was bitter sweet when it ended, but it was truly a blessing. Here are a few pictures I was able to catch in the midst of having such a good time

Make-Up Time

Soooo I've never really been good at the whole make-up thing so I kinda shyed away from it. I've practiced in the past but every attempt was a complete FAIL Lol. I'm not a big fan of bright eye colors for some reason I always felt like I looked like a clown. I just think soft and simple is more me,sooo I decided to give it another try. I did a really simple eye. I used La Colors Gold eyeshadow for my lid and crease and a darker gold under my brows. Then I lined my top and bottom lid with black eye liner and used a NYX champagne color lip gloss. Check out the pic. How did I do???

Essence,Fireworks & Birthday Cake

Not only was this 4th of July weekend, it was especially special because it was

My BIRTHDAY!!!! Yeap my birthday is July 4th and I turned 29 years old today.

I actually didn't have any plans for my birthday I decided that I just want to spend time catching up on some much needed R&R ,but to my surprise my sister-n-law, brother, and my nephews came in town and surprised me. They had a whole weekend filled with fun things for us to do, and not to mention it was Essence Festival here in New Orleans. They threw me a surprise party with ALL of my favorite things. Sorry I don't have any pictures I was having to much fun, but I did manage to snap a picture of the cake before everyone dug in(smile)

Today I woke up to over 50 Facebook Birthday messages, WoW! words can't describe how special I felt, So much happend in the year of 28. Let's see, I went Natural, I moved to New Orleans, I started school, I was in a relationship and learned so much from it,and I learned to trust God more. I'm so blessed and thankful for all the good and bad that happend in the Year of 28 and and if I had to do it all again, I wouldn't change anything. The good and the bad has made me a little bit better. I'm SO excited about my future and I'm looking forward to all the things that will come in the Year of 29!!!
