I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles~Audrey Hepburn

Remembering Lucy

(August 6, 1911 – April 26, 1989)

She was funny, beautiful, fiesty and smart. She was simply Lucy. She was taken from us way too soon, but her memory will live on in homes around the world for many generations to come. I pray she is resting in peace and I'm sure she keeps heaven laughing.

What is your favorite I Love Lucy episode or Lucille Ball movie?

My #1 Star, My Girl

My daughter is such a special girl. She's an 8th grader and her idols are Ginger Rogers and Audrey Hepburn. Pretty impressive I think. She's always been so happy and oh so very talented. Whether it's drawing which she does amazing or how she can just sit there and recite all the knowledge she has aquired in school, I am always so proud of her.

When I showed her Breakfast at Tiffany's a few years back she was hooked. And as soon as she watched a Fred and Ginger musical she knew it was exactly what she wanted to do with her life. Acting and singing. I think she does both so well. She was finally able to join her school's theatre program this year and this weekend she starred in her first play. I was overwhelmed with joy and happiness. I was one proud Momma.

I know this is only the beginning for her and there will be many more to come. I can't believe she will start high school next year. Time sure has flown by and I'm not sure where it all went. My baby is all grown up. She has become this beautiful, smart and perfect little lady. I will always support her dreams no matter what and I know she will succeed in anything she wants. She will always be my #1 Star.

Moving the story treeBeginning danceSinging to the right of girl in pink dressSinging to the right of princessWhispering to her little brother asking if he enjoyed the play. He says of course. We all did!I have so many more pictures but they just didn't turn out due to their "no flash" rule, but I will treasure the memories forever!Love you my sweet princess

I simple adore these slippers and everyone who knows me well understands my love for Juicy CoutureI just bought this bracelet and I swear the picture does not do it justice. It's amazing in personI also bought this but it was backorder, so I will receive it mid-May. The detail is just perfect. I can't wait!I just thought this was the cutest find. Hello Kitty wine. Would have never guessed it. Genius HA! Anyone else know? I wonder what it taste like? I might have to buy it just for the cute bottle:-)And finally today, this has got to be one of my favorite internet photos. I just think it's so cute! I wanted to share it with you all.

Summertime, can you hear me?

I can remember just how much I loved summer when I was little. I would go outside and stay out till the sun went down. I had so much fun and I didn't have a care in the world.Now that I'm grown and my summer activities have changed, I still look forward to spending time with my family at the beach. Watching them play and laugh so innocently. Feeling at peace when hearing the waves crash and feeling the sand between my toes.I will enjoy seeing the pretty sunflowers that have bloomedAnd indulging in my favorite beverage, sweet tea.Throwing on a chic little pink summer dressAnd cute flipflops. What's better then that?Well I guess June 30th comes close:-) Exciting! I can feel it coming..and soon I will be sitting on the beaches of South Padre Island leaving behind all the worries and cares just like I did when I was young. It can't arrive fast enough. Summer, can you hear me? HURRY!
