What I’m working on…

Last night, I made some pecan bars for my co-workers (baking is my therapy). They came out sooooo good!!!  I was tempted to eat more than one, but I held off because my little butt has been faithful in the gym.  Then, one of my co-workers told me I need to go into business….hmmmmmm….that was seriously on my mind for a little while as a side hustle.  Somehow, life got into the way and it fell off.  So, I’m starting to take this thing a little more seriously.  Time to dig out my Photoshop!  Please be on the look out for….


This is the logo idea that I have so far.  I have a friend who is a graphics design major and she can help me with the rest!

I’m so excited – I can’t wait to birth this dream into a reality!!!

What if's...

Although I'm still pretty sad, I'm staying positive about EVERYTHING!!! I'm focusing on finding the best of me and erasing the what if's out of my life and focusing on what IS. I never imagined that I would be here, but now that I am, this is the best time to discover the things that are real and amazing about me.

-I am the sweetest person you will ever meet; I go above and beyond for my loved ones.
-I'm pretty damn funny, I can crack a good joke.
-I'm artistic and creative, once I get those juices flowing.
-I'm driven to be a successful woman. One day I will wear a hat that VP of something...why stop at VP?
-I have beautiful brown eyes.
-I'm a pretty good kisser if I do say so myself lol!
-I am an awesome mother, I would die for my daughter.
-I want the best things out if life. Not necessarily material things, just the best experience possible.
-and finally, I am me-learning to love a happier and healthier Mitzi.

Smiling a little bit more today than yesterday...

And her name is ME…

Hey everyone – to say this has been a busy week is an understatement.  I’ve had doctors appointments, super busy at work, and an interview (please keep your fingers crossed for me). I took my braids out and combed out a ball of hair the size of a miniature poodle O_o – let’s just say I am looking forward to a sexy haircut in my future!
Speaking of future, I had to make a very hard decision about mine. I have decided to focus on my relationship with myself for a while – I just need to take care of me.  When I fall in love, I love HARD; I give my all to the people I love but I’ve neglected myself.  So, I’m taking time out to send some love to the number one lady in my life…ME. With things being up in the air, of course I was a little anxious about how it will turn out; but I’m super positive about the decision I made and very excited about re-discovering my love for me.  Every woman gives her all to everyone and everything, but just taking the time to truly yourself is the best thing in the world.
When you lead with loving yourself you rarely have to worry about what follows.
So, what am I going to do? I don’t know, I’m just going to go with the flow. Take her lead and take my time.  I know what is first – that fabulous hair cut I’m going to get!!!  No more braids for this girl!!!!!

Hey Life…

At this moment I can most honestly say that I am just along for the ride. On this road that my life has chosen for me, I am merely and passenger. No control, what so ever. Clearly, I am being taught serious lesson in releasing my grip and just being patient.  I was hoping to be writing a post on completing another task off my bucket list, but that has been put on hold. 

With these last few weeks, I have placed many wants and desires into the universe – just hoping to see what comes back down to surprise me. Hopefully, it will be all good; but most of all I hope it just BE. I have a busy week ahead of me; lots of appointments, work, fun, and decisions. While I take some time to ponder where this road is headed, I will leave you with this…

Dear Life,

Whatever it is you’re trying to teach me…I am here to learn.

Hey everyone!!! It's been a little while since I've posted; happy to have one thing crossed off my list and moving on to the next (two weeks away). These past few weeks have introduced some changes in my life. For one, I'm starting to feel very confident with being a 30-year old woman. It's almost as if a switch was turned on and now things that used to get on my nerves don't, and I have a confidence seed sprouting inside me. That 'I can take over the world' feeling.

That's my sexy and I know it picture lol!

Other changes that have happened are on the home-front. Brian found a job in a city about an hour away, so he moved to make way for Mia and I. I'm so happy for him, it's been a hell of a year, but the changes are a little strange. I'm so used to having him there and it's a weird feeling to come home and he's not home. I will get used to it, but hopefully by the time that I do we will be reunited. So now I've come to grips with the idea of the job search and leaving colonial. I've been there a long time and that's a change in itself. A change I will welcome. Hopefully the moves I make this summer will be the caveat I need to cross some things off my list and approach this new decade like a real diva would.

I've started a new blog for my fitness goals,

Please check it out when you get a chance.

So with so many changes, how am I going to handle everything? With style and grace - a classy woman till the end.
