Blogging Less and Working More

I seem to be blogging less and less.  It's been a month since I've posted anything.  There are reasons for that.  I am working more hours at The Loft Outlet because we are short-handed.  When I'm not working, I'm working my Mary Kay business.  Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you.  I'm doing Mary Kay once again.  This is my 4th go-round.

I loved my booth.  It was fun doing what I loved at the time. It's just not easy to do here.  The cost of rent is unreasonable.  I don't go pickin' enough to make it profitable. I've always loved Mary Kay. I've used it off and off since I was 12.  I've found that so many in my circle here were either consultants or use the product and have no consultant.  I've already made back my investment.  So, here we go again.  You can check out my website  Bonnie's Pretty and Pink

I see the babies often.  They are growing.  I get the sniffles just thinking about them growing up.  Cora, my first baby girl, turned three this month.  She's mixture of beauty and mischief.  She is a girl after my own heart, a mix of many faces.  She swings from shrills and thrills to tears in a second flat.  She is a beauty and the spitting image of her mommy.

Her cousins on both sides play like they are all family.

I enjoyed seeing family and friends at the annual Top Nazarene Talent event at Trevecca Nazarene University (TNT at TNU). 

It made me miss home just a little bit.  Well, a whole lot!

I can't believe how very much the kids have changed in two years.  My nephew played a mean game of Competitive Frisbee.  He's visiting colleges.  I'm hoping for Vanderbilt but he's looking at University of Georgia and Georgia Tech.  His major will be Mechanical Engineer.  Right now he's rebuilding a motorcycle. 

Our miracle baby is a little bit of sunshine. 

She loves playing mommy and doctor.  
Bless her heart, with her allergies, 
she knows exactly what the stethoscope is for!

She begs her mommy to go to "Bon-Bon's house."

I guess Nashville is becoming home.  

At least, it feels like it when the kids are there
or we are hanging out together. 

It doesn't feel so much like home today. 
I lost my daddy in March 5 years ago.
My brother died in March and his birthday is April 14.
If you don't know the story you can read it here.

Connor man doesn't really care for baseball. 
He'd rather wait for the treat at the end of the game. 
He's ready for soccer. 
His mommy registered him for Kindergarten last week. 
I don't think she's ready for this. 

For Lint, I was going to give up Caffeine and Diet Sodas.  
The first two weeks were great.  
I got up every morning and walked on the treadmill, 
had my quiet time, ate healthy
and then I was hit with a headache like I've never had before. 
I missed work and went to the doctor twice.  
Needless to say, I fell off the wagon.  

I'm getting back on...next week.

I start a part-time job of being a companion to a 
precious lady in our church.  She's a beauty.  She like to have
her nails done and enjoys walking and eating out. 
I'll looking forward to spending time with her.  

May you be blessed with a peace and joy during this Holy Week.
Remember, He became like us, so that we could become like Him.



  1. Good to get to visit with you again! You have been missed.
    I gave up wine for this Holy Week. So far so good.
    Your family is just precious! They DO grow up so fast!
    You stay so busy - it's a thousand wonders you find time to blog at all - but I'm glad you do!

  2. You know, the headaches come from getting off the caffeine...the crud they put in those sodas, sigh...just saying. I left soda/pop behind a long time ago and had gosh awful headaches for a bit, but now, all is good. Plus, I dropped over 22 lbs, yep...just saying.

    Miss you sweet friend, hope you all are well. Keeping you in prayer. I've been meaning to email....smiles

  3. Blessings to you dear Bonnie! It is nice to hear what you have been up to:) LOVE seeing those sweet little ones! Enjoy your day and pop in occasionally so I can see your sweet face! HUGS!

  4. Bonnie, Wishing you and yours a fabulous Easter. I see you have had family times...aren't they the best? What a cute little dr. you have in the family. I think we shall always miss those that have gone on ahead. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. SO happy to see you here, Bonnie!
    You are missed!!!
    Love the photos you shared!!!
    And I love Mary Kay eye make up remover.
    The best!
    I will visit you to order some next time!!!!
    Happy Easter. : )

  6. I pretty much knew all of this but it was great reading it all on a blog post! I pray you have a BLESSED Easter weekend, my sweet friend! My Nashville bunch will be here tomorrow night !! YIPPEE!! :D

  7. Sounds like you are really busy, but in a good way. Your jobs sound perfect for you. And those grands are stinkin' cute!

  8. Love your posts! Your babies are growing up just like mine, snif snif.
    I'm excited for you in your new adventures. I've used Mary Kay a few times but seemed to be without a consultant most of the time. Like the eye makeup remover and mascara.
    I must have a cup of coffee in the morning....never drink soda anymore. Must have coffee!!
    Blessing for your day, my friend!

  9. Bonnie, I'm just getting around to visiting after relocating to TN. I can understand your thoughts about your dad. My mom passed away a month and 2 days ago and it still feels so fresh. Working as much as you are certainly doesn't leave a lot of time for blogging. I just appreciate whenever you check in. Lots of prayers going over there for you!


I love the friendships I have developed through blogging. Visit and comment and I'll be sure to drop by and talk to you.
