hello, October, welcome!


I can’t believe it’s October already, can you?! It seems this year flew by like (snap your fingers) that! So much can and has happened in a year.


My daughter picked out this beautiful California grown bunches of fall flowers.  I love all the fall colors w/a dash of sunflower. I really love fresh flowers in my home!


LOOK! at all those colors! Amazing, right!?


Hello Sunshine!


Mini yellow roses…


Look at the hybrid of this yellow + red piece of sunshine!


Soooooooooooooo…how was your weekend? Do anything interesting and fun? I had a fantastic weekend, as always! I mean, what’s not to love about spending time with ones who love you unconditionally–my daughter + her BFF, Jolie! They love each other and play together constantly. Gosh, I love my kids!

Make a great one, loves, here’s to a great week!

Your Sunday Morning Cup of #Inspiration

Summer flowers are what makes outdoor living in the summer, well, beautiful. After my a.m. workout, I took a stroll down our street to cool down and ended up capturing these beautiful blooms. Beautiful, right?

my morning cup of #INSPIRATION

Good morning, lovelies!

Welcome to Monday, a day in which most of us dread because the workweek is putting a damper on our very lovely + relaxing weekend. I don’t know why, but I’ve never been one of those people that look at Monday as a dreadful day. In fact, I love Mondays, well, OK maybe I like Mondays–love is going overboard. One of the reasons I like Monday is because I get to bring a bunch of flowers to work to help add some color to my cube. Plus, it gives it that homey feeling. Cubicles can be depressing, especially if you’re not sitting near a window. I love that it brightens up my cubicle and the fragrance lasts all week.

In my opinion, it’s hugely important to start your workweek on a good note and certainly with your best foot forward (you should always do this anyway, but sometimes we all need a little reminder). Maintaining a professional working attitude is important because it sets you apart from others and it lets your supervisor know that you’re serious about your work and about that promotion you so yearn for.

 “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” —Maya Angelou

When you feel good, you walk taller and are more articulate in meetings and crawlference calls. I call them crawlference calls because they always seem to take for.ever. to get through. You ever sat in on one of the calls where you have no idea what the call/meeting is about? And you spend most of the time daydreaming about beach vacations, shopping at your favorite stores or sites, reading DreamLoveBelieve blog by iamGlor?

Speaking of feeling good. I eat this for breakfast everyday–
  1. a glass of warm water (12oz to 16oz)
  2. a handful of almonds
  3. 6oz of Chobani Greet yogurt (plan, non-fat)
  4. 10 seedless grapes; reds are my favorite
  5. a banana
  6. 72% dark chocolate

Like the flowers, I keep a large tub of Chobani Greek yogurt at the office so I can have whenever I have the urge to consume empty calories. I add the almonds and grapes into my yogurt. I LOVE dark chocolate because the antioxidants in dark chocolate help keep my blood pressure down. I eat about 100 grams a day. And I’ve read that the nutrient in cocoa called epicatechin help lower the risk of common diseases.

What’s the one thing you have to have in the morning? Tea? Coffee? Chocolate? 


Pretty Wednesday: #Hydrangea


I love, love flowers. They just light up my day and they smell so good. These pretty hydrangea plants are all over my condo community.

FYI, hydrangea is a genus of about 70 to 75 species of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia and North and South America. By far the greatest species diversity is in eastern Asia, notably China, Japan, and Korea. –Wikipedia Scientific name: Hydrangea What is your fave flowers or flowering plant?

Most Romantic Thing Ever

What’s the most romantic thing someone has done for you?

Being a romantic comes easy to some and not so easy for others. For the one I’m deeply in love with I’m happy it’s like second nature to him. Here are just a few ways I think he’s the most romantic man and I’m very lucky to be his girl.

The most romantic thing my boyfriend has done for me is making my favorite pie –pecan pie –when I asked him to last weekend. I mean he does lots of romantic things for me all the time (at least I think they’re romantic because I’ve never had anyone do those things for me before).

For instance, him driving me to the store or driving me around so I can run my errands I find to be romantic, helping me find a dish I’d enjoy on the menu and ordering for me is romantic, sending flowers or edible arrangements to my office on our anniversary is romantic, giving my mutt lots of love and making sure she’s walked and fed is super romantic, waiting for me to finish my dinner before he gets up is romantic.

Maybe I’m just in love or perhaps he’s a tall, dark and handsome Spanish man, whatever the reason I love him and his romances. I feel so safe and secure when I’m with him and I couldn’t imagine life without him.
