Tending to The Little One

Links to this post

After recording this video and looking over it myself (which I never do after I post) I realized how tired I looked after removing my shades.  Wow, Prince had me worried and I didn’t sleep well at all last night.  My body was all thrown off, I checked on him all throughout the night.  When you have a dog/cat they really become a part of you, like a child and it is the hardest thing to see them in pain.

As of this morning he’s perked up a bit, still laying around but when he saw me he jumped as normal, unlike yesterday when he just stared at me helplessly with pain in his eyes (sounds so dramatic right) I can tell he’s still a bit backed up because he stomach is still a little hard.  And he still isn’t eating much of anything.  Right after I’m out of the office I’m headed home to give him a bath and show him some TLC (tender care & love)
ttfn,

Snap Out Of It

Links to this post
Hey every one, I hope you all have had an amazing beginning of the week!  If you're a fellow twitter bug, then you may have heard about the news and why last night and this morning sucked for me.  It will really irritate me to go in depth about it, but my car was hit last night during a police chase, it was parked and I was in bed, just thanking God that I wasn't in the car, or getting out.  I guess I'm a bit of a drama queen when it comes to my car because the more time that goes by in the day the more I realize that it's not a HUGE boo boo, and it will be fixed promptly.  Thanks everyone for the pep talk, my parents, bf, and coworker made me feel better LOL I'm such a baby when it comes to my car!

FYI, I purchased this case with my own money and was not asked to blog about it. :)

Mom's Kidney Transplant| 5 Months Later

Links to this post
I'd like to thank you all for constantly asking how my mom has been post surgery, it really means a lot to me, to know that you all genuinely care and want updates a million thanks to you all for the prayers and well wishes. I promised you all an update from her personally, here it is!

Mom:
Today make's five months since my kidney transplant! 10-11-11


I'm doing wellSince my surgery I have tremors (feeling shaky) and within the last month they have increased. I also get very hungry late at night, not for a snack, a full meal. I have one word for that WOW!
Twice I have been sick with something like the flu (NO WARNING AT ALL) I just wake up and can't get out of bed. 

I take 15 pills in the morning and 9 at night, I don't get sick anymore from my medications. My friend Jackie at Cigna prayed for me about two months ago and she told me each time I take my medication to hold them in my right hand and say a prayer, I haven't been sick since. Thank you Jesus!

My creatine is at the lowest since my surgery 1.4, my prograf, potassium, magnesium & blood pressure is good.  

I started off twice a week having my lab work done to once a week now i'm at one every two weeks YAY!

SHOCKING CHANGES
I don't know what happened, because I have never been a sweet eater-- but I guess my donor likes sweets. . . I now keep mike & ikes in my night stand, I eat cookies & ice cream , etc.

 i also have added broccoli, carrots, mac & cheese to my diet. 

Before my surgery I was at the gym six times a week, I can now do maybe three or four times a week. I don't feel as strong as I did before my surgery but i'm praying for strength.

I don't get stressed because the thought of being in good health mentally and spiritually is all the reason I need to be happy and thankful.

THANK YOU TO MY SISTER JEWELL FOR DONATING HER KIDNEY SO I COULD RECEIVE ONE. THANK YOU TO MY UNKNOWN DONOR. YOU TWO ARE VERY SPECIAL TO ME HUGS & KISSES!!! Priceless~

I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS THE MINOR THINGS I DEAL WITH IS NOTHING COMPARED TO A PERSON ON DIALYSIS.

I'M BLESSED & THANKFUL EACH DAY.

The Bold & The Beautiful

Still drooling over bold styles!  I now introduce to you, my new collection of tribal style jewelry currently available in the shop.  This collection consists of geometric shapes and pop colors!  I specifically designed the featured pieces to be stand alone pieces, which is normally what I go for on a daily basis, basically keeping everything simple and letting one particular piece of jewelry become the focal point.  Of course you can pair them all together for the guru that loves to keep her look in a set.

Over This Past Weekend

Links to this post
Rob and I had a nice and relaxing sunday, enjoyed some Mojo yogurt, I was feeling like a fatty so I got the cake batter flavor with a bunch of junk toppings, except for the passion fruit bubbles.. they were good at first, and later grossed me out after I popped so many in my mouth Ughk, lol.  It's funny because usually it would be the other way around, mine would be covered in fruit.  I guess I've rubbed off on him. He was completely grossed out by my yogurt flavor.


Aside from that, I did add some new items to the shop last week from the Eshun Design Co, here's a little snippet!  As you see here, the style is very earthy, gorgeous, does great things against the skin!  Should I elaborate more?!  There are a few styles of earrings also available in the shop and clutches!  visit the SHOP and check everything out for yourself!

Protective Styling| Genie Locs

Links to this post
I finally got a day off from work which means that I FINALLY had the energy to complete my hair... actually just completed the rest in 1hr.  finished literally at midnight.  I don't believe I had ever started a hairstyle and took this long to finish, super busy, barely at home--  It was worth the stretch though, I am pleased with the outcome and plan on keeping these in until the year ends.

F/W Must Haves| BCBG

Links to this post
BCBG head to toe, we have some great key pieces that are fall essentials.  All girls need a great pair of high boots to beat those uber cold days, these Dedra boots just so happen to be flat so they're super comfortable!  Also, these sleek faux leather pants are one of my faves, they're super soft on the inside and they also come in black, I'm in love!
