Oh, How Pinteresting...Calling M.A.C Goddesses!

It's Wednesday, Dolls! Time to start pinning!!! If you've never heard of PINTEREST, click on my "peppermint" link, on the right side of my page, that reads, "PIN ME". It'll all make sense. It's just a place to store everything you love. Kinda like a virtual collage. Or many virtual collage boards. A lot of fun! So...every Wednesday we all team up with the beautiful Michelle from THE VINTAGE APPLE , and "pin" our favorites from our boards each week! This week I'm dedicating my post...and my all things M.A.C

I told you guys that I would have an AWESOME Giveaway when I reached 50 Followers & guess what...I have 51 now! YEEEEAAAYYY! I am over the moon & thank each & every one of you...with every beat of my heart! As my way of thanking of you will receive something awesome, that relates to of course...M.A.C Make-Up! And who doesn't love M.A.C, right? 

I will post the item & all the details in tomorrow's post, so please be sure to stop by! I PROMISE you will LOVE it! 

Here's a little clue as to what you will receive! 

Have a beautiful day, Sweethearts!

 I am so thankful to share even just a little part of my day...with all of you! 

Much Love & Appreciation! 

Happy Wednesday, M.A.C Goddesses!

I'm so looking forward to sharing & growing with all of you & would love to be a part of your lives as well. I can't believe I have 48 followers (friends) now! Makes me so happy every time I log on & see all your beautiful faces smiling back at me! Love it & ALL of you! Thank you so much! Every new face...kinda makes every day feel like my Birthday! He He.

When I reach 50 followers, 2 more to go...I will have another awesome Giveaway! Yeay! Can't wait! If you're here..."just visiting"...stay a while & you can win too! And...I'll be sure to return the favor! 

Here's to Friends...Old & New...and a fabulous week ahead! 

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you. Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight. Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

But if the people you're dealing with are really mean...make sure to stay far far away from them! 

A "talk to the hand" a day...keeps the meanies away! 

Put on your wings & conquer the world!

I Present To You...My First OFFICIAL "Sunday Sweethearts"

Happy 1st. official "Sunday Sweethearts", Beautiful Dolls! 

Thank you so much for joining me on my very first "Sunday Sweethearts" link-up! 
I'm so excited to have you with me! 

The inspiration behind this, is a day to share ALL the things that happened during the previous week...that made your heart...a little sweeter.

I wanted to start this "movement",  in hopes that everyone who reads these precious moments...will inspire each other to love a little more, and to become aware of the impact a simple act of kindness/love...really does have on our lives. We all can make a difference., no matter how small, and I truly believe that love really does...make life worth living. No matter what each of us are going through...when you surround yourself with love & goodness...the world absolutely gets a whole lot sweeter. 

It's my little version of "Paying It Forward".

I would love nothing more, than for you to join me on this touch, inspire, & of course...make many lives as we possibly can!

How awesome would that be!!!

I can't wait to begin this crusade with all of you & to make the world ♥ at a time!

Here are mine this week...

1. Declaration of Love

Woke up to this oh so sweet message from my Hubby! He always tells me wonderful things, but doesn't always post them on Facebook for all the world to read! Made my heart melt. I love my Hubby so so much & thank God every day for bringing us together. Thank you, Baby...for the beautiful gift of you. I love you is an understatement!

"Not sure if I say it enough so I will say it again. I am the luckiest man on earth I am married to the most beautiful,thoughtful,loving,caring and any other thing a women can be. Just wanted you to know that I love you and appreciate all you do for me and the world we live in. You effect so many lives with your beautiful words you post on your blog( I don't know if you realize how much better the world is because you are in it. I do and I thank god every day for that. Veronika I love you so much and I am so excited that I get to spend the rest of my life with you. I am proud to be your husband. Bonnie and Clyde forever!!!!!"

2. Pinterest Pics.

So of all of you, I'm sure...I was playing on Pinterest this week & came across a few pics that really touched my heart.

No explanation is necessary for this one.

"In Germany... Couples will take a lock, and attach it to the bridge's fence and throw the key into Rhine for love and good luck. So, all the way across the whole bridge the fence is covered in locks!"

How beautiful is this? I so want to go there & add to it! LOVE this!

How unbelieveably ADORABLE is this? Cutest thing...EVER! Until I get to the next pic...

Ok now this one...I can't even stand it. One of the sweetest, most pull at my heartstrings, to die for things..I've ever seen...ever!
"Sea otters hold hands when they sleep, so they don't drift away from each other."

Could you seriously just die? I can't get enough of this pic.

3. Compliments From A Stranger
B & I went to Bj's last night for dinner & to watch the Ranger/Angel game (still root for our home team...GO ANGELS! Not so much me...but B...loves him some Angels. Basketball is my sport! Lakers for life! Ha Ha) Anyway...after we ordered our food, I went to the restroom to wash my hands, and this adorable woman was washing her hands too & just went on & on about how cute I was & how "well put together" I looked, etc. etc. The only reason I'm sharing this is becasue I felt everything but. Don't get me wrong...I am very happy being me, but after the day we had (cleaning & organizing in 110 degree heat)...girl...I was tore up! So tore...I didn't even want to go to BJ's which says an awful lot! You see..I am addicted to BJ's! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Ok...that sounds really bad (LOL), but what I meant to say was...I LOVE...Pot Stickers, Pizza & whatever they call their new strawberry TO DIE FOR dessert! OMG...let me just tell's INSANE! Not a huge fan of chocolate, so Pizookies don't do it for me, but this strawberry favorite of all time! If you love strawberries, vanilla bean ice cream & something that tastes like a cinnamon/sugar'll be in absolute heaven! 

So...where was I? Oh yeah...compliments & of course...BOMB food! Lovin' that sweet lady & Lovin' me some BJ's! 

It's called a Baked Beignet & here's the description & what it looks like.

"Our delicious bakery crust dough baked to a golden brown, tossed in cinnamon and sugar and then topped with vanilla bean ice cream, fresh strawberries, a drizzle of strawberry puree and fresh whipped cream."


4. Girlfriends. Old (er) & New

Dedicated to Heather from Big City Belle & Kori from The Blonde Episodes...a HUGE Thank You to both of you for your endless love & support & for just being so warm & wonderful to me! I can't wait until the day...we are all playing at my house! He He. I love & I appreciate you! Who would have thought I'd meet such amazing women through blogging. I know Heather "in person", but are growing closer through our blogs. I can't wait to spend many moments with you. (Wine tasting...FOR SURE! October would be perfect!) I couldn't love it more, & I can't wait to meet so many other new friends. It's such an awesome way to connect with people all over the world! To share our hearts and our beauty tips...priceless. Love & Hugs to all of you! 

And last, but not least...

5. LV Love

A surprise from my Hubby that came wrapped up in this.

I love very unexpected surprises. Home cleaning & working...and in walks this. And my favorite part...picturing him at the store, all by himself...carefully picking out what he knows I'll love. (Not like you could ever go wrong at this store!) A gift for his "Wife". Awww...that's the part that melts my heart. Him picking it out & being so excited to give it to me. And the best...he even monogramed the inside. 

VW. (Veronika Welt)   and  BV. (Bobby & Veronika) 

I just wanna SQUEEZE him! LOL!

I love being married to him & I never take anything for granted. 

Well...That's it for this week, Beauties! Thank you to all of you for reading & an extra special Thank You, in advanced...for all of you who join me in my very first "Sunday Sweethearts" link-up! I love & appreciate you...all!
