Dreams Came True in 2014

2014 is coming to a close and like many of you I'm reflecting on my year. I did a lot of cool things, I went a lot of cool places, I forced myself outside of my comfort zone and it all paid off. Sometimes the payoff didn't come until down the road and other times the payoff was simply personal growth. Either way I was receptive to it.

Earlier this year I attended the Newsbabes Bash event last minute and I had the time of my life. I went alone and met almost all of my favorite news reporters. They were all really nice and it was for a great cause; Jim Vance was my favorite for sure. Full story HERE

Happy Holidays!

It is Christmas Eve and we are one day away. A lot of us are hanging out with family and friends, eating as much as we can and laughing plenty. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the likes, shares, follows, commentary, and many ways you've supported MimiCuteLips in 2014. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOURS FROM MI AND MINE! Take this time to disconnect a little bit and be present in the moment. 2014 has been amazing but 2015 is going to be even bigger and better.

With so much going on in the world I just love to see their innocence. With that being said yall Christmas is coming. Suck it up and find your holiday cheer.

James Young DIY Network – Food Pantry Makeover

I had the pleasure of interviewing James Young, host of 8 seasons of DIY Network's I Hate My Kitchen. James is partnering with Walmart to Makeover 75 local Food Pantries Nationwide for the Holidays. They will award $1.5 million in grants across 75 local food pantries from Dec. 2nd to Dec. 12th.  Today, 49 million Americans including more than 12 million children struggle with hunger at some point during the year.  Did you read that? More than 12 million children will struggle with hunger. As a Mother of two this breaks my heart even more. I'm so thankful that I'm able to provide for my babies but many people aren't in a position to do the same.

I am thankful for

The four of us celebrated Thanksgiving at home and in our pajamas for the first time. We are always on the go and hardly have time to just lay around and do nothing. This year we did just that and I'm thankful for it. Now I'm what I call a new age gal, I don't do the old school cooking and such. I can only make a couple of things from scratch and I don't own a sifter or a rolling pin.
