1. I got to spend 5 days with my family back in Corpus this past week. Seeing my family was MUCH overdue and I was so glad to have spent as much time as we could there.

2. As y’all know, my parents got me the Maskcara IIID Foundation HAC Pack for Christmas! It was the really big thing on my list, so it made me really happy.

3. Mathew and I not only got to have a late Christmas with my family, but we spent New Year’s Eve with them as well! We had a great time at my aunt’s house playing trivia games, watching football, eating yummy food, and my favorite part…making bunuelos. Bunuelos are balls of dough stretched out super thin until they’re practically see through. Then, they are fried in oil and covered with cinnamon sugar. It’s my favorite part of New Years because all the ladies just sit around, talk, and try to make the best looking one!

4. Mathew and I started working out again and are beginning the process of clean eating. I’ll be talking more about our journey with clean eating and even giving y’all some fun recipes from one of my favorite websites, which I can’t wait to do! Although yesterday was only day 1, I’m happy to say that it was a success.

5. I was inspired by a fellow blogger and Instagrammer to take a picture every day for the year and use a hashtag to document it. I’d love if you all followed my hashtag on Instagram– #VMWeveryday2014. Let’s hope I can keep it up for all 365 days!



1. My car STILL isn’t done and I wrecked it in October. I’m dying to have it back!

2. Our only working car went kaput on us this week and so we are even MORE in dire need for crappy #1! We would absolutely love your prayers or thoughts to just get through this hard time. It’s not easy having ZERO vehicles.

Now it’s your turn to link up! Tell us about the Happies and Crappies from your week!

  2. We spent New Year’s at home, all of us catching a funk from my oldest son we are still trying to shake.. I hope you get your car back soon. Ours was totaled in our wreck leaving us with an old pickup that is hard for us to get into or ride in with our backs messed up..

  4. Oh no! About the cars. I really hope things get resolved for you soon – I know how tough it is to be without a car.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, iff all webmasters annd
    bloghgers made good content as you did, the internet will
    be a lot more udeful than ever before.
