Happy Memorial...Weekend!

For those of you that know me...I'm a patriotic as they come & I LOVE everything having to do with our country, those who give their lives for it, and everything else in between! The colors, the togetherness, the food, the music, the sunshine...everything!!! My family & I will be BBQ-ing/ our brand new back yard & everything will be festive & fun! He He. Sure hope all of you have a PERFECT and safe weekend...FILLED with everything & everyone you love most! 
Have some fun in the sun & take a moment to remember ALL the soldiers...past, present, & future...who give us the freedom we enjoy on this day...and every day. I thank you, and I couldn't be more grateful. 


Enjoy Your Weekend, Beauties! 
God Bless You...ALL.

Patriotic & Proud,

Under Construction

Hi, my Gorgeous Dolls! 
BLOGGER (this site that hosts my blog) has been "under construction" for a few weeks now, with some posts disappearing & some days not allowing me to log on at all, so...hence the lack of daily posts! Ha Ha. I apologize for the not-so recent updates, but fingers'll be back & running in no time! And...the worst part...all of my oh so special followers, that I love & appreciate so dearly...have disappeared from my page! They still show up on my "home page", but not on my "visible" page that all of you can see. So just know that I didn't delete you & hope I can see all of your beautiful faces again...ASAP! Thank you for your patience & for being so wonderful & supportive! Love & Hugs to you ALL! 

Back to regular posting soon,

Heartfelt Inspiration

Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher have an extraordinary story to tell.  They’ve been married for 86 years. Together, they endured the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, Cuban Missile Crisis and Vietnam, they have seen the impact of the Civil Rights Movement,watched man land on the moon, the dropping of the atomic bomb, lived through the terms of 15 presidents and still live to tell about it.  But there are many centenarians for whom the same holds true so what makes Herbert and Zelmyra so extraordinary?  Throughout everything, they have remained married.
Married on May 13, 1924, 105-year old Herbert, and 103-year-old Zelmyra do not pretend to know any secrets to a lasting marriage.  They have been married longer than any known living couple, had five children and have watched countless grandchildren and great-grandchildren come into the world.  They are a sweet, aging pair that will tell you truthfully that they were married because Zelmyra “did not give [Herbert] any trouble” and Herbert “was not much to look at… [but] he was quiet and kind.”  After 86 years, they remain in the home where they raised their five children, sleep in different bedrooms and love each other all the same.  They hold the world record for length of marriage for two living persons.  Is your union built to last the test of time?
Marriage Advice:
Question: You got married very young – how did u both manage to grow as individuals yet not grow apart as a couple?
Answer: Everyone who plants a seed & harvests the crop celebrates together. We are individuals, but accomplish more together.
Question: At the end of bad relationship day, what is the most important thing to remind yourselves?
Answer: Remember marriage is not a contest – never keep a score. God has put the two of you together on the same team to win.

How cute are they! I fell in love with these two & they inspire me so very much! What a wonderful, beautiful accomplishment! My Parents have been married almost 40 years & I feel so blessed...every single day. I can only dream of a marriage this lasting. It is so true that when you find your Soulmate, forever never seems long enough. Here's to my Soulmate & all of our...Happily Ever Afters! 

A believer in Forever Love,

Brow Beautiful

Hey Gorgeous Dolls! Since today is the Rapture & all, I figured hey...we might as well look good while we go out! Ha Ha! I'm only making fun because I don't believe in it AT ALL, besides...what time zone are we talkin' anyway? Because in Texas it's almost midnight, so I'm safe! LOL! 

So...I've always wanted to go to the famous brow expert to the stars, last year I did. B & I drove all the way to Beverly Hills, which from Orange County & California traffic...took almost 3 hours! My brows did look beautiful, but anyone drinking Monavie knows...your hair grows like a weed, and in a week...they were a hot mess all over again! I was not about to drive all the way there, every week, so I bought her brow kit & started doing my own! Saved a lot of money & a lot of time! Here's what I learned from the brow expert herself. 

This is the kit I have, minus the brown pen, shown on the very bottom. After watching her use it in this video...I just ordered it from It's called...Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Skinny Brow Pencil.  And this entire kit can be ordered from Amazon ( Her tweezers & scissors are awesome & I love the brow highlighter! Never used the stencils myself, but she used them on me when she did mine & they looked beautiful. I just don't fill my brows in every day, so haven't played too much with them. She uses this kit on every client that she sees. You will love it! Here's a video of Anastasia in action & one of one of her celebrity clients you might recognize!  

I'll leave you with gorgeous brows & my "Rapture Theme Song".
The Sweetest of Dreams to you! 

If the eyes are the windows to the soul, our brows are the curtains!

A Night To Remember

Sounds like a prom theme (Ha Ha), but last night really was...a night to remember! One of the best places, watching one of the best performers...with the best date...ever! I could not believe when I saw our tickets & saw Row 1! We were literally in the very front row, perfectly in the center! INSANE! Really were the best seats in the house! Sitting next to me was the most enthuastic fan you've ever seen, who entertained me all night (LOL) & directly behind us were two of the cutest San Antonio Sweethearts...I've ever met! SUCH a pleasure to meet you both! Thank you SO much, my beautiful B for a magical, wonderful night! I LOVE LOVE LOVE being married to you! One of my favorite parts of the night was Josh singing a song called "YOU ARE LOVED". Such a beautiful song & such a great message. I want to dedicate it to all of you. Picture Josh, singing this song...just for you

You Are Loved 

Don't give up
It's just the weight of the world
When your heart's heavy
I...I will lift it for you

Don't give up
Because you want to be heard
If silence keeps you
I...I will break it for you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don't give up
Because you are loved

Don't give up
It's just the hurt that you hide
When you're lost inside
I...I will be there to find you

Don't give up
Because you want to burn bright
If darkness blinds you
I...I will shine to guide you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don't give up
Because you are loved

You are loved
Don't give up
It's just the weight of the world
Don't give up
Every one needs to be heard
You are loved

If no one else told you this today, I did...and you are.

Grateful for Gorgeous Husbands, Groban &...YOU,

B & V-Date Night!

B just surprised me with tickets for tonight's JOSH GROBAN Concert & I couldn't be more excited! We absolutely LOVE him and he & his music hold such a special place in our hearts. Our very first concert together was for B's Birthday & I bought us tickets to go see him & at our Wedding...our first dance, was none other than Groban's "When You Say You Love Me".  His voice is as pure as an Angel, and he sounds EXACTLY like his CD'! Only better, because it's live of course! Ha Ha. If you are a's a MUST SEE/HEAR! You will not be disappointed! 

Crazy story about him...because we were dancing to him on our Wedding Day & because we are such big fans, I thought it would be SO awesome to see if I could get him to come & sing our first dance song...himself! To a Man that has everything...B would JUST DIE! So...I got out my trusty MacBook & typed away!!! Guess who I typed it to? Yep...OPRAH! Ha Ha! Who else could make this happen! To my surprise & utter shock...her staff wrote me back! I never believe anythings impossible, so I wasn't that shocked...just more excited! Unfortunately the weekend of our Wedding Josh was in New York, otherwise he would have stopped by & sang our song! Can you believe that! What an amazing surprise that would have been for B. But hopefully in this case...the thought did count! We love you, Oprah & Josh and thank you SO SO much for trying! Means the absolute world! SO...if you EVER have a dream that big...or even bigger...ALWAYS ALWAYS go for it! What have you got to lose? Nothing at all, but EVERYTHING to gain!    

Thank you with all of my heart, my beautiful B, for these tickets & for a night and a moment...I will cherish forever! I love you to heaven & ever after!

Lovin' Groban & My Gorgeous Husband,

We've been invited to attend a Special Advanced Screening tonight to see Pirates & couldn't be more excited...for one reason...My Brother's IN IT!!! He plays an English Sailor & we are SO excited to finally be able to see it!!!  Most of the movie was filmed in Kauai, where Aram lives & more was shot on the ship in the Santa Monica area, where he stayed with B & I before we moved. With a draw to all things Pirates since birth, Aram was meant to be in this movie & loved every second of filming! He looks A LOT different than "real life"...he's as authentic as you get, but always just as gorgeous as ever! 

Pause at 1:31 & you'll see! 

He's the one on the left! 

Aram on set in Kauai.

Aram is ALL OVER this clip...front & center! That's My Boy! Ha Ha! 

Aram in "real life". With a soul...just as (if not more) beautiful! 

My Facebook Picture Tribute! 
Ha Ha!

I  LOVE LOVE LOVE you, my Beautiful Brother & couldn't be more proud of you! You are, and always will life's greatest treasure! 

 My Little Sailor,
