Can't believe I barely have the time to blog. With my family,  my business being crazy busy,  Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Boy when did life get so crazy. My oldest is now 13 and in his last year of elementary and my youngest in grade 5. I still sit here and think to myself is this really for real.

Wanted to say if you all are interested in following me on Instagram please follow me at designsbyveronica you'll see my picture with me wearing sunglasses. Come on over and follow me. The new year I will be posting a lot of new meals, family and all about me and my journey.

Wow it has been a loooooooong time

I can not believe how long it has been since my last post. As you have guessed life has been insane. Too much to do and so little time. The boys are now 10 and 7 and growing so fast. I am loving life and enjoying each day. I am working away this morning so I will have to come back and update you all on everything but for now I just wanted to give you all a shout out.

It's been awhile......

We are almost at the end of October and all I can say is what a crazy year it has been. I have had highs and many lows. Life always finds a way to take every curve in the road and leave you thinking that you possibly can not handle any more, but you are so wrong because you always do and always will. I truly wanted 2012 to be a better year for my family in regards to health and the year of the dragon has let me down. I am thankful that after going through all of this I am a stronger person but it still takes a lot out of you.

I would like to focus on the good. Tomorrow my sister will be turning 40. I have a few surprises planned and am looking forward to hearing her get really upset with me but after all we've been through I think she will just laugh it off. Or at least I hope she does. lol

Crop for the Cure 2012 is only 18 days away and I can't wait since this will be the 5th year anniversary of when I first started it on my own. There is so much to be excited for this year but also so much heart ache behind the word Cancer. It has hit my family a few too many times and to tell you the truth it hurts knowing that I am not only helping others but indeed my very own family. This year we lost my other Bermudian aunt. My aunties were very near and dear to my heart. Since the first time I stepped foot in Bermuda my two aunties have made going to Bermuda something to look forward to. Now going there will only remind me of them and the fact that I will never see them again. I am thankful that my father is here with us after putting up a fight. He is a strong person and I am so proud of him for giving it his all and beating cancer and winning.

I better get going and am happy that I finally got in here to write what's on my mind.

Good Night!

My 2012 Word

So it's the new year and I still have to pick my world to live by this year. I think it will be improve...... meaning to improve at being a better improve at being in better improve at being a better improve at being a better mom. We always have something we would like to improve, this year for me I started with my office and have been slowly working at getting everything sorted out and ready for 2012. I hope this year my families health is at it's best i really can do without the white hairs. Yup I am 35 and they are start to show their little strands here and there. Steve is being really sweet by trying to tell me they are just blonde hairs. Either he is going blind or just loosing his mind. I've never had a blonde hair nor will I ever.

I ended up getting side tracked on my Dr. Poon's lifestyle change but soon reality hit and I need to get back on track. Last few days I have been back to drinking my water and eating my Poon style food. Boy did I miss it. Sounds funny as some of you are thinking I am nuts but when you are used to one thing for so long when you get off for a while you need the feeling of having control again.

Off I go to get some typing done. Met with one of my brides and grooms tonight and they were so sweet bringing me a favorite caramel brule. I thought it was so sweet when I found out the groom called the store and found out what I drink just so it would make my night. It really did but now I am so tried I want to sleep. Funny as coffee is suppose to keep you up. I guess having so many of them really reverses the process.

I better get some sleep. Good Night!

Happy New Year!!!!

Happy New Year! I am so thankful that 2011 is done and over with. I am praying that 2012 the year of the Dragon is going to be much better. It's so far starting to be a great year. Business is good, spending time with my family, and of course getting my life back in order so that when things get crazy again next week I am prepared to take on the world.

Today I decided to get groceries this morning, cleaned up in my room (business area) and just organized all my coupons with a new quick system. Yeah I do not have as many as I use to but there are enough that I need to have them organized so that I can start using them again. The system is a simple one and didn't cost a lot just about a dollar. I purchased 100 envelopes  3 5/8" x 6.5" at the dollar store and printed off labels in word with the following categories

Air Fresheners/Candles                                             
Baking Needs
Canned Goods
Dish Washing                                                                              
Feminine Needs                                                               
Food Misc.
Freezer Items                                                                 
Hair Care                                                                 
Household Misc.
Medicine/First Aid                                                        
Oral Hygiene
Skin Care/Make Up

It's was easy and took only about 5 minutes to get all the labels on the fronts of the envelopes and stuff them with the correct coupons. I am ready for my next shopping trip.

Even had the chance to speak with my Bermudian cousins and auntie. I could not believe I almost spoke to everyone except my cousin Mikey and my 2 uncles. Everyone looked great and I was so delighted I was able to speak with them over Skype. If you don't have skype you need to download it quickly.

Better get going as I am on the end of my second glass of champagne and still need to finish cleaning this area before going to bed.

November already

It's already November. I can't even believe Thanksgiving is gone, Halloween a thing of the past and now we are listening to Christmas music and already thinking of what we will be doing on Christmas Eve. This year has been extremely busy. I can not even believe how busy I have been with the kids, my dad, the school, the business and life in general. Our family trip to Disney feels like a thing of the past....actually I already need another vacation. The boys have all requested Hawaii but I am thinking of taking them to anywhere hot and all I will be doing is relaxing. Who am I kidding.

The boys are growing, life is super busy and I have to find a creative way to get Christmas shopping done.
