A few weeks have past since my last entry! Things are rapidly changing around me but I know its God’s way of saying He is in control and to trust Him. I have slowed down a little but not given up. You see, I am experiencing the first trimester blues. Its not all that blue, it just slows you down, takes all of your energy and makes you recognize that life will throw you curve balls every now and then. The question is do we keep swinging at them or strike out? I refuse to strike out.
Things are moving along rather quickly! I cannot believe how fast time is flying by. Today was a big step in the future of Sporty Mommas. I met with a publicist about putting the cookbook out on the market a little bit. Its exciting and nerve wrecking as well. So many ideas and goals but I know I must be patient and stay focused on God’s will for me.
What a busy week! Our daughter’s fourth birthday party was a success. Things actually went as planned and everyone enjoyed it. The Honey Shine Hats Off Luncheon was awesome! Over 500 fabulous women gathered together for a great cause. The experience of being on the committee taught me so much. Sporty Mommas made our first charitable donation to the Honey Shine Auction! I completed the auction basket for my daughter’s Pre-K class…my the list keeps going on and on!
I cannot believe the month is almost over and there are so many new and exciting things to be grateful for. The cookbook, running our first ad and an unexpected blessing that you will hear about soon! I am so thankful that God keeps pouring out His blessings on us!!!
I was anxiously anticipating the premiere of VH1’s BBall wives. After 30 minutes, I was disappointed. First, there was only one true wife and a bunch of ex’s. They are trying to say these women are friends but it is clear they barely know each other. I hope they can show what it is really like being married to an athlete! There is drama in any relationship but with money comes more problems and people that think they want what others have!
Wow! Where is the time going these days? I am still recovering from a five day road trip. Our first stop was to visit some old friends in Spring Training. (Shaun attended his first baseball game). Next stop…Disney! Kids had a ball but I think my hubby had more fun! After 4 days of park hopping we returned home to my shipment of the Sporty Momma’s Cookbook. What a blessing! After months of hard work and patience I must say that I am truly proud of it. I hope that it will bless other people as well.
My first bazaar was a huge disappointment! People did not show up and the ones that did…well let’s just say I only sold one book. I am looking forward to many successful events in the future. Stay tuned!!!
Today was full of the usual hustle and bustle. Dropping off, picking up, recruitment activity….mom’s house. The days just keep rolling by. I am really excited about our next featured momma. April is sure to be even busier with the release of the Sporty Momma’s Cookbook, my first bazaar and the Honey Shine Hats Off Luncheon. I am so blessed to be involved in awesome projects. I thank God daily for my family, friends and purpose!!!
So we are more than halfway through the month and I am beat! Besides having a really bad cold, I have so much to do and so little time. Between Honey Shine recruitment events, Sporty Mommas and well just being mom I have been experiencing my version of March Madness. A few years ago I actually watched college basketball, now I can’t keep up.
Yesterday I attended a fashion event at Bal Harbor. Tina Knowles introduced a line of couture dresses and they were amazing. I was sitting there thinking to myself it all starts with an idea. You need passion to succeed and faith that God will make a way.
God is good. My kids and hubby are happy and healthy and Sporty Mommas is doing great. The best is yet to come!!!!
Well things are happening super fast. So many things to do, places to go and people to see. Lately I have been so busy, I have to make myself eat. (Okay besides the junk food cause I am always snacking!) Business symposium and a party tonight with a whole lot of running around in between. GOD is GOOD! Stay tuned there is more to come!
Have you ever took a step back from your situation and realized how good God is? In spite of our circumstances, short comings and imperfections, He loves us and wants the best for us. When things get tough and believe me they have been up and down lately, I praise Him anyhow. I know that I am doing His work. Are you listening? Are you fulfilling His purpose for your life?
I cannot believe it is March already. Today was one of those days where I felt like I was moving in slow motion. It took me an hour to mail two packages due to busy kids and the wrong packaging. I found this awesome handbag store but the kids thought it was fun to climb under and over the displays. So no I didn’t buy anything. Why did I take the kids in the first place…I don’t know. You would think that I didn’t have a nanny at home.
