Enjoyed having a day off where I didn’t do much! Funny how I can’t just stay in bed but I can lay on the couch all day! Ha! Loving this green and patterned hutch that I found. I’m strategically selling pieces in the garage that I didn’t get to. I promised Bart at least 1 side of the garage lol. But I have a curio cabinet that I can’t wait to redo. And I plan on returning to sewing. I love this coat @michelleobama wore. Still classic but trendy to me! I have a Pinterest board dedicated to her style 😍. Her style evolved throughout the years and I love it! Bart bought me her new book #becomingmichelleobama which I started. #dayoff #monday #lazyday #breakfast #readingiscool #michelleobama #fashionista #sewing

Ahhh I feel like I haven’t sat down since June!!🤪. Watching Hallmark movies. It’s so good to see the floor again too. Next up is the Christmas tree. I seem to be gravitating toward black, natural and gold decor. I made this jar of gold horns and black ornaments. Can’t explain but I like it. Ha! This week I’m going to create my 2019 Vision Board, read a book and organize the garage. Take Bryce to the movies and Christmas shop!!! Can’t relax too long.

Happy Sunday! Im thankful God that He uses ordinary people like Mary the mother of Jesus and ME! @gr_first In spite of my imperfections, He loves me💗 Bringing our my inner Latina flavor by making Pork Steak cooked in Sofrito over rice with Collard Greens. Sofrito is a flavorful cooking base for a lot of Latin dishes. My Hispanic friends/sisters told me about it and I love trying new things. And I made Jalapeño cornbread too. 😋. Ok confession: I am a recovering procrastinator! Lol But I finally finished this loveseat. The back had me a lil stumped but I think I discovered a solution. Not perfect but cute! Love this color combo! Now to add pillows 😍. #pork #porksteak #sofrito #honorarylatina #afrolatina #foodie #foodsofinstagram #blackfoodie #easymeals #sundaydinner #ilovefurniture #upcycledfurniture #repurposedfurniture

Up late working on recovering this loveseat. Praying that the other side is easier than this one 🙏🏽 😂Ready to put the living room back on n order. At least to make space for a Christmas tree!😝. #ilovefurniture #upcycledfurniture #upcycle #ballingonabudget #grey #fieldsfabrics #iloveinteriordesign

What a great Friday! I had to check on the rooftop deck/patio area from inside of course. So cool to see a city from that point of view. Also stopped next door to @nomadgallerygr which I think is one of the coolest spaces around! Talk about organic! Even the bathroom has art! The black and white pics of Detroit were just beautiful! Then we had our company Christmas party at a bowling alley. Very cool! I am so appreciative to God for all of the doors that He opens for me. And I always want to reach back to those behind to encourage them as well 🙌🏽. #grateful #friday #artiscool #nomadgallerygr #downtowngr #puremichigan #wintertime #detroit #officechristmasparty #coolcoworkers

I am really considering Locs. I love they’re somewhat low maintenance and versatile. I used to go to the hair salon faithfully every 2 weeks. I cannot fathom doing that now! Stay tuned there may be a change coming 😉. Note: Pinterest pics. #ilovepinterest #loclove #locs #naturalhairstyles #mochamoms

Today it was so cold outside that I wanted comfort food so I tried a new recipe for Jalapeño and Cheddar Cheese Waffles. Savory and Sweet. Very good!!! And yes I love PB on on my waffles! Lol. Finished another tree at work and saw this cool view of the dog run area. Plus I love the fun mural. I can finally see the appeal of studio apartments. They have certainly come along way😉. #waffles #savoryandsweet #newrecipe #breakfastfordinner #ilovecooking #apartmentliving #westsidegr #christmastree #studioapartment #smallspaceliving #puremichigan #mural #muralart #foodiegram

Seeing the sun out just instantly brightens your mood! Especially, when you leave work at 5:30pm and it looks like this! Pretty but ugh! Lol. #michigan #michiganweather #christmaslights #midwestchick #rosaparkscircle #downtowngr #naturalista #naturalhairstyles #auburnhair #sunshine

Church at @gr_first is always great! But didn’t feel like cooking so tried @hopcatknapps for the first time. The BBQ Pulled Pork and famous Crack Fries were delicious. Starting a cleanse tomorrow though. 😜 I promise being around kids keeps me young. Or maybe I’m just as silly as they are. I call myself decorating for Christmas 🤣. I love these black matte ornaments though! #sunday #experiencegr #midwest #shoplocalgrandrapids #grandrapids #cousins #silliness #churchgirl #grfirst

I am enjoying this quiet moment to myself. And yes I do regret eating toast and grits! Ugh bloated! Lol One of my goals this year is to get back to reading which I love! I've had this Bible since I was 19 and the pages are coming loose but it's my fav!!! Lol. I’ve committed to reading at least One book a month outside my Bible, for growth and leisure. 📚 And I finally found a “Jenny Lind” bed to redo! Had to use a plastic bag (old school way) to tie the trunk! Hey it works! Now I have to figure out what color I should do. Teal is fun, white is crisp and natural wood or black is so boho chic. What do ya’ll think? #breakfastalone #saturday #bible #oldschoolways #jennylind #bedinspiration #goodwillgr #ilovethrifting #refurbishedfurniture #ilovetoread #readingisfun

Today I attended a training to become a Certified Tourism Ambassador for GR. Even though I am born and bred here, she told us some very interesting facts that I did not know. Very cool class with a great teacher! @experiencegrandrapids And of course I love that my job participates with the @salvationarmyus Angel Tree. The residents of the buildings have opportunity to give presents to kids whose parents are incarcerated. I know personally how much this means. ❤️. #grandrapids #cta #certifiedtourismambassador #puremichigan #givingback #communitydriven #soulfulliving

We put up the Christmas tree at work today, so that means it’s officially Christmas season. 🌟🎄 I just might ask Barry for this gorgeous dress and head wrap! Love the colors and it has pockets! I’m definitely going to get a pedicure. I like simple but this kinda cute to me. SN: This is the first company I’ve worked for that has mouthwash in bathroom. I love and appreciate this😁. #goodhygiene #work #christmasattheoffice #dresses #ilovedresses #girlswithglasses #naturalupdo #naturalhairstyles #milkbraid

I LOVE finding people that inspire me to be better in my craft! And of course I love out of the box ideas for furniture. I love this matte black tablescape! I will find the owner and give her credit too! @rachaelrayzdisplayz and @serendipitydesigns2013 #recycledfurniture #paintedfurniture #creatives #creativityrocks #furnituredesigner

Heyyy from me and Bryce in snowy Michigan! So proud of him for working hard and shoveling this heavy snow with me while Bart’s at work. Now where is the phone number to that snow plow guy from last year?🤣🤣. SN: excuse my eyebrows lol #hardworking kid #hardworkingwoman #workethic #downwithwinter #snow #snowday
