2014 - Create Your Amazing Destiny !

Dec 31, 2013

Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Make it not just a good one but an amazing one.
I've already decided 2014 will be my year. I know we all say this on New Years but I am committed
to make this my year. My faith in god and everything is bigger and stronger now. I don't consider
myself religious, I consider myself spiritual in the sense that I believe in staying positive and letting 
go.And most importantly I believe in not judging others and believing in the impossible because everything is possible if we keep positive.

I am making my own list of things I want to improve on in 2014 but this was a fun simple one I
stumbled upon on Pinterest I felt we all can kind of relate to. Every year I make list of goals for
myself and I may not accomplish everything but when I look at the year that passed I see the 
difference in myself and feel better because I did accomplish certain things. And all this does is 
give me more confidence that I can accomplish even more the next year. So sit down and right
your list of goals.

Definitely !
I just got engaged to my best friend, I have a great job and successful career ahead of me, a caring family, a close-knit group of amazing friends, my good health, a home to go to every day, a bright
future ahead, my very own first apartment to decorate, a wedding to plan and my faith in god will
keep growing everyday letting my know a shift is coming and 2014 will be AWESOME !

This is the beginning of forever to me and I wish all of you a very Happy New Year !!!

If any of you are looking for a book to help you keep positive I just started reading
Break Out by Joel Osteen last night and it's so good so far.

A Little Inspiration . . .

Dec 23, 2013

Enough said ! You can dream all you want about accomplishing things but unless you get
out of bed and make things happen they're aren't going to magically occur. With hard work
comes a large payoff. It may take time but think of this way, this is something I have always
thought to feel better about where I'm at in life. "The harder your life is now the more fabulous
and great it will be later."

Life Lately - I Said YES !

Dec 19, 2013

So this happened last week and I'm still not over it. I'm engaged ! After 7 years of dating he finally got the courage to pop the question, either that or I just annoyed him to the point of no return. Either way we're both happy and can't stop from calling each other fiancé, it's annoyingly adorable.
How did he do it you ask? Well see Jason is very how do we say hard headed and complicated in other words he's a man. I don't mean to men-bash but you will know why I say this in just a second. For the last year we've been talking about marriage and you know the future and what not. This whole time I thought we were on the same page. A week before he proposed I just asked him is there something holding you back because we seem so happy and both seem to want this but we were at a standstill. So I ask just asked is it the money or are you not ready. Guess what he said! "I'm not ready." Yup, he went there and I felt like a deflated balloon animal. My feelings and dream of a wedding in the nearby future went down the drain. For a week I gave him the attitude from hell. Oh don't sit there and act like you wouldn't have done that too! I mean come on the man I'm love with and have been talking about a specific future for the last year all of a sudden has cold feet. Crazy things were running through my head like its been seven years, how in seven years can he still have doubts?!
Anyways, turns out he had been planning this for months but didn't know what else to say to keep me from asking. Word of advice gentlemen DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT tell your long time girlfriend who you have clearly been talking about marriage with all of sudden say your not ready. Because not a lot of us have to the strength to stick around until you make up your mind, just sayin'.
On Monday 12/9/2013 we spent the day hanging out eating, watching tv, playing with the dogs a perfect day in my book. So, were just sitting down talking and he says are you still mad at me. And I say I'm not mad because honestly I was disappointed but I knew in my heart he would come around, well at least that's what I kept telling myself to keep sane. He says I have something to confess. As soon as I heard that started having heart palpitations like oh sh#$! He gets down on one very shaky knee, I kid you not I thought he was going to fall over at any moment. And he says "I lied I do want to marry you". I literally stared at the ring for a good two minutes before realizing like holy sh#$! he just proposed. After five minutes of us going back and forth not believing this was really happening we hug and kiss and he says "You see were not on the same page I'm chapters ahead of you". Awww queue the happy ugly tears.
I always knew this guy would propose like this. Make me question my sanity and why I'm with him to then give me the sweetest surprise ever so typical of him. That's my life lately and I'm so excited to be moving soon, starting a new chapter and bringing Wedding Wednesday's to the blog. Yes, finally I can blog about weddings without feeling all weird and stuff. Oh and I unblocked my pinterest wedding board, now everyone can see all I've been fantasizing for the past year that is now slowly going to come true : )

It's a rainy day here in NYC and I thought this would be a simple yet funky outfit to wear to work today.

Happy Friday !

Its Sweatshirt Time !

Dec 3, 2013

Yes, unfortunately I referenced the Jersey Shore in this post title please don't think lowly of me 
but that show was entertaining at some points. Don't act like you didn't watch at least one episode
 even though you felt like you lost some brain cells during that hour. 

Enough about me and how I'm over reality television, lets talk about Fashion Sweatshirts. I love 
to dress comfortable and you can't get anymore comfy then in a sweatshirt. I just love that 
designers and retailers are now making them more fun to wear. Have a fancy date? You could 
easily wear the Baily 44 lace sleeve sweatshirt with a body conscious pencil skirt. And Viola !
