Chronicles of #theLASTbaby

 

Shortly after our youngest son turned two, we were blessed with the great news that we were going to have another bundle of joy in 2015.  In January of that year we made our fun pregnancy announcement video, and soon thereafter, we got a chance to meet, snuggle, and love on #theLASTbaby.  I kept up with pregnancy updates, as best as I could, via my YouTube channel; however, my blog didn’t get much attention that year.  It was always my intention to share a quick blog update especially for my WordPress family but that third baby was my fifth pregnancy, and I was COMPLETELY WORN OUT for 99.9% of the time.  Princess definitely made her mark as #theLASTbaby and was absolutely worth, as all children are, the pain, pelvic stretching, nausea, all day sickness, constant tears, mood swings, skin changes, and contractions.  It is so funny how once you see those innocent eyes, tiny fingers and toes, and hear that faint cry; you forget every pain and are consumed with pure love.

Though these fun videos may be late, okay they are super-duper late to WordPress; each one is precious to me because we overcame so much during this season of our lives.  In the grand scheme of everything that exists, life is truly short, and every moment should be appreciated and used as an opportunity to become better.  That’s what this pregnancy did for us.  Each and every time we thought we couldn’t deal with another brick, life would happen, but thank God (the father of Jesus) for his perfect peace and guidance.  We came out stronger on the other side and had a beautiful princess to enjoy as a result of our obedience to The Most High.

Below, you will find the chronicles of #theLASTbaby and I hope you enjoy every video.  Also, take a moment to think about how your life has changed during 2016, since 2015, or throughout the 2000s.  Remember that thing you thought was going to take you out of here, ruin everything, and keep you from rebuilding?  Well, I don’t know the details but you are still here so clearly, you survived.  I also hope your faith in Christ grew; you gained wisdom, and are using your testimonies to share the goodness of God.

Life isn’t always easy, but in our family we love our lifestyle and keep it CHRIST style!

Make this week remarkable,

My Mind Is Made Up

So… Here’s the background story of what led to this post.

My husband made a decision and at first I was like “Okay, cool.”  Then, as time passed I was like “Umm… I changed my mind and have decided to not agree with your choice.”  Much more time passed and I was like “I’m back to agreeing with your initial choice because you CLEARLY aren’t going to change your mind.”  Then I read my Bible, repented, asked him to forgive me, followed through with the choice via actions and words, and we lived happily ever after.

Let’s go ahead and put this disclaimer here for see.  I publicly admit that I am not perfect.  I especially want those who, for some unknown reason, think I don’t have the occasional difficulty practicing what I preach as it relates to submission, obedience, or anything else biblical to know this.  I’m not proud of the times that I’ve made the decision to do the wrong thing, but I am grateful for the grace that comes with repentance, by completely turning away from that choice and getting back onto God’s straight and narrow path.  I’m also thankful for the word of God, via the infallible Bible, that shapes, molds, and prunes me on a daily basis.  The Bible is an amazing book that applies to life everywhere, covers generations eternally, and is never wrong.  Through my daily study God has showed me so many things from areas of improvement to life goals I should strive for.  Bible study has changed my viewpoint on lasting marriage, given me tools for rearing our children, showed me how to become a good helpmeet for my husband, and maintain a sweet fragrance for our household.

I’m not sure what decisions you are facing on a daily basis but I encourage each of you to trust the direction that God has for you.  You cannot let doubt and fear outweigh your faith in the Most High!  Often times, we get frustrated with the decision maker because we are scared to move out of our comfort zone.  Sometimes wives have a legitimate argument and once your side is presented, take a step back and allow your husband to make the final decision.  Trust that the same God that orders your steps will order his and obedience will keep your entire family aligned correctly.

So what was the big decision that my husband made?  Well, he picked Popeyes over Church’s chicken and I’m going to stand by his side on that.

Short Hair, Don’t Care #Fabulous

403319_10151055615096845_29286794_n

I came across the Sensationnel Fab Fringe unit several years ago when it was all the rage on YouTube.  Short hair in itself wasn’t new to me because I loved wearing my hair short when I was in junior high and High School.   Toni Braxton was super popular back then and everybody tried to rock her short look.   Unlike those who failed miserably at their attempt or barely pulled it off, I looked good!  But, even with that extra boost of confidence, I remember being so scared of trying Fab Fringe.

Short wigs can look phenomenal when styled right, but if you fail to cater the unit to you a disaster will be sitting on your head.  Another problem with short wigs that they usually make you look much older than you actually are.  However, the solution is simple, once you try the unit on be sure to make the time to style and adjust it according to your facial features.  If you do this immediately, the unit will look good the entire time you own it.

I love Fab Fringe because it it comes in a myriad of colors and can be styled various ways. I also love that it is human hair so it can be washed and will last years if you take care of it. My first Fab Fringe unit is 6 years old and it still looks great.

To see me style this unit in various ways, check out my recent video.

This unit is still available on various online beauty supoly stores, including Samsbeauty.comWigTypes.com, and Amazon.

Per the styling video, you can see that I’ve got plenty of short wig confidence. I loved this unit so much, I tried several more. You can also see me in other short wigs via the videos below.
