God is the biggest! With that said mannnnn this week has been psycho. That phrase anything that can happen will absolutely has applied this week. Try 1 urgent care trip and 2 emergency trips, with 3 different people. The blessing in this is that everyone should be ok. And for that I'm greatful. But honestly I had a couple I don't know how I'm going to get through this moments. Today was a great day though as we prepared for Easter by doing our usual Easter Egg hunt. And we saw the new movie the Croods, which is hilarious. All's well that ends well. I just hope next week is better than this one.

Standing On Couches And What Not
Omg! You would not believe the week I've had. I came home after having the best time in Miami only to get sick once I hit Cleveland. And on top of me getting sick I ended up in emergency with my eldest. Let's just say the last few days have been full of some much needed r&r. Hence that phrase a vacation from a vacation smh. Anyway, my cuz Anya sent me this picture of us at LIV today..so cute!! Mom looks darn good if you ask me. :)
What in tarnation....Lisa Perry Jumpsuit.
Have you ever seen an outfit and wonder who in the heck is going to wear that? This is one of THOSE lol. And at $1195, you'd have to be crazyyy. Dont get me wrong I love a good star print like the next person but there is a definite thin line, smh. But just in case you are (crazy that is), you can find it at www.shopbop.com
The Terrible Captain Hook
My daughter has been in 4 out of 8 community theater productions of Peter Pan. Let me tell you community theater is no joke. Each play was two and half hours. And I sat through all 4. But the shows are sooooo good, I really didn't mind. And my absolute fave character besides my baby, was Captain Hook. He was amazing!
Cupcakes with the Kiddies
My LOML and the kids were so cute. They turned off all the lights and jumped out and yelled surprise when I walked in. Now I can't say I was as surprised as they wanted. The fact that my house was pitch black and my children were in there let me know something was up, lol. But the effort was super cute and honestly this was one of my favorite moments of my day.
Happy Birthday to....ME
Today's my 35th bday and so far so 34, lol. I decided to try and look a little grown up while I ran around and did my errands today, instead of my usual sneakers and sweathshirt day fit. Let me tell you, Louboutins are to be seen, not walked in. First and last time I rock them during the day unless I have somewhere "important" to be.
Happy Birthday AK!!
Darn these March bdays lol. Next up is my beautiful aunt, who is truly more like a sister to me. Today she turns another year young (I wont dare post her age, in case she tries to kill me) and is celebrating with her girlfriends in South Beach. We take our annual bday celebrations there every year. And this year she decided to get the party started before the rest of. I hope she is having an amazing time, she certainly deserves it.
Giuseppe Zanotti Spring/Summer 2013
I am totally in love with the black and gold theme that Giuseppe has going on currently. But really, who am I kidding?? What dont I love that Giuseppe does? As usual they are bring it with their current collection. Click more for my faves..
Fashion Bombshell of the Day
Just found out late last night that I was the fashion bombshell of the day over at www.fashionbombdaily.com. Super cool! But those comments are way harsh lol. I swear you have to have a thick skin or your ego might seriously get bruised or worse even, you might want to comment back, which is a absolute nono lol. But comments or no comments, it was still amazing to be featured. Besitos.
Happy Birthday Brenda!!
I told you guys that March is a doozy! Next up is Brenda, who has been a great friend for many many years now. We first met when I was around 18 and let's just say a lot has changed for both of us, from then to now. She is somebody that has always been supportive of me, and with girls we know how difficult that can be. She is a great mom and I definitely aspire to have the type of relationship that she and her eldest daughter daughter have. Andddd homegirl might just have some of the best genes in Cleveland, lol.
Happy Birthday Charlene!!
My younger sister is amazing! Amazingly beautiful, amazingly intelligent, amazingly sweet...you get the picture. I can absolutely count on her to be there for me. And she has been. She constantly is making the trip to Cleveland to see me. And even surprised me on my bday last year. I am truly blessed to be her sister :).
Happy Birthday Toya!!
March is a special month, not only for me, but for many close family & friends as well. It appears that many of our parents were all "participating" in certain activities right around the same time lol. With that said I'm kicking off the Happy Birthdays to my LA homie Letoya. Toya belongs to a special group of LA friends that no matter if we dont talk or see each other in forever, I am embraced with open hearts and arms whenever we finally do. She is as sweet as she is pretty. And she has an equally amazing heart :). The pictures I attached were from the first time we met, which I think is now 2 years ago. How time flies...
If the blog is new....
Why the posts going back to last year?? I struggled with this. This blog just launced live a few days ago. But my reality is that for the last 3 years Ive blogged at silkandlookies.com, so I have a ton of "diary" entries that I couldnt live without. So just so I wouldnt have to start at day one like my life on the internet didnt exist until then, I copied some of my entries here. Just a few... because believe me I wanted them all. But copying them takes more work than just entering them the first time, so I can't possibly move all of them (though I would love to). But going forward the only place any new entries will be is here. #BelleLife
A Whole New Blog
Wow! I cant believe this year would have been 3 years of me blogging for silkandlookies.com. I absolutely loved every second of it! And because of that blog I decided to venture out and start my own blog about my life, and hence www.abellelife.com was born. The beauty of this blog, is that alot of the lifestyle aspects of silkandlookies will still be the same. I still plan on posting my trips, outings, and fashion. But this blog also gives me a platform to share the author aspect of my life which I havent done prior to now. Many of you dont know that I wrote a children's book. Which I hope to turn into a series. I know some of you are like, a children's book?? Yes!! I am the proud mom to 3 beautiful children, who have absolutely inspired me to write. My book is scheduled to go to print anyday now and I am beyond excited! And as my book grows, I will be posting regular updates of that journey here. So welcome to my mind, my life, my blog. :) Come on in, the water's fine lol.
