Congrats to the bestie









Congrats to all the new Moms this month,

So today was the bestie's delivery day, and the whole family and friends went in to be with her and her family while she was in surgery. Her first child was a long and painful delivery which ended in an emergency c-section, this time she wanted to try a VBAC but her doctor told her it was impossible to do so (mean side-eye *it means a dirty look for those who don't know* right there o_0) because of her c-section scar, i had my doubts but i thought to keep them to myself, no need to worry her anymore than she already is .

So anyway, today was the day and we showed up with her and I tried to stay with her but they only allowed one person in at a time so her MOM tried to stay and they told her no (o_0 to the nurse) so she was by herself and she was so nervous and scared. But anyway we kept texting and that helped to keep her from being too nervous. 

Unfortunately she had to wait an extra hour and 1/2 because the woman who was due before her showed up late for her c-section (I mean who really does that?) but a few hours after she came rolling by us carrying her beautiful bundle of joy 6lbs 13oz, she looks like a little porcelain doll.

I just know she is going to love all the toys and gifts we got for her, it was an amazing weekend, the baby roomed in and I stayed overnight to help her get used to being a new Mom again. It was both great and uncomfortable (hospital beds suck big time) and apparently when in an uncomfortable position I snore. I became the butt of the nursing staff joke for the floor, but despite all the aches and pains it was all worth it because here is who we came for:





Well i hope i haven't bored you with my birth tale,
Thanks so much for stopping by

Love and Light always

Turkey Recipe

So today i made a turkey meal. I took a recipe from a girlfriend and cleaned it up. So here is the recipe:

Meat:
Lean ground turkey meat
2 stalks celery
1 med. onion
3-4 small caps portabello mushrooms
black and calamata olives (optional)
2 small fresh tomatoes
tomatoe sauce either canned or make your own

Spices:
1 small tsp sugar
olive oil

Directions:
Chop up onions and tomatoes(deseed) and place in hot pan
add rest of vegetables

Saute' all of these until nice and juicy. Set aside

In another pan add small amount of olive oil and brown meat. Once meat is browned add on the vegetables. Mix well then add on tomatoe sauce. Let simmer until everything is well mixed


TOMATO SAUCE:

i used canned tomatoes from last year (that my mom canned) and added in 1 spoon full of sugar, and two fresh tomatoes and let simmer down until its nice and thick.

or you can purchase canned peeled tomatoes and simply slit them and add water and let simmer down until reaches chosen thickness.
Well I hope you love it the same way i did, i made whole wheat spaghetti with it.

Enjoy and Blessed Be

Spring has almost Sprung


Witty title i know. So what have i been up to you ask??

Well for the last few weeks i have been crafting up a storm,my best friend and three of her family members are expecting so i have been crocheting and creating gift baskets galor. Im super excited because im trying new projects and using different yarns, So far i created four different sock bags, four sets of booties and now im working on a brown and green blanket (hell if she doesnt like it ill take it back )

In other news: My dreads are growing nicely and school is coming along nicely. i cant wait for the semester to be over so i can work my butt off during the summer for another great semester in the fall.

Im super excited because everything is just falling into place and i cant wait until im done so i can start traveling all over. Omigosh im super excited about my practicum which i can do overseas if i want (can you say HELL yeah).
Other than school and crafting i havent had a chance for much else. Im super happy about my new laptop (it's mine all mine no more sharing a computer) so i can put up all my own bookmarks and have any background i like
on the health front i have been slacking a little lately i havent brought any food with me to school in a few days and i bought food the other day nothing healthy like before i really want to get in shape for summer so so i have to buckle down and get to it,

and a new plan is in motion: ill let you know once everything is in place.

New Laptop= Inspiration 
So i know i said i was taking a break well i got a new laptop and im inspired to do a few videos just to get rid of all the pics and stuff i have taken and saved, so ill be putting up vids as soon as i have time to do so. I have put up three which were easy to edit not too much editing needed so up they went,

i have to note that i have slipped a bit in my eating healthy kick and new life makeover i ate so much junk in the last few weeks it's crazy i had pms craving which i never really get but i ate so much sweets and i cant even say it's cause i knew it was coming cause my flow is like most women unusual to say the least (think 1 a year if at all). I have had all the blood panels done and my hormones work fine my body just doesn't do it and my cousin was the same way til she had her babies after baby two she became so regular you set a clock by her. (So now that i have shared waayyy too much lets get on with the show)
Baby sock bag/ adult sock bag
