Body Progress: Month 3

I've found something that actually does work for stretch marks!!! It's pure African Shea Butter! Nothing else added in it. Just make sure it's 100% PURE. You can get it on Amazon.com for $4-$10 for a huge block of it, or you can get it from the Vitamin Shoppe or Target or any other store but make sure it says Out of Africa Pure Shea Butter (this is the one I use). I discovered this stuff when my friend Chris, a drummer for the dance ensemble, had a bucket of this stuff and I read the front label of it and saw everything that it helps (yes not just stretch marks), and he said that they also use it for blisters, scars and cuts they get from drumming. I asked my friend Ethan who was standing next to him who is also a drummer and said to both of them "Does this stuff really work and heal all of these things?!" And Ethan firmly said "I am a FIRM believer! If it can work on my blisters, I'm sure it can work on your stretch marks." So I immediately used some of his and told him that if it looks at least 10% better tomorrow morning i'm buying some! And guess what...the next morning, it looked 20% better! Since then, I've been using it for 3 weeks now and my stretch marks are increasingly getting lighter and lighter each week. Very Fast! I'm almost positive that these will be gone in time for Senior cookout day.
Chris also told me that it works even better with African Black Soap. So yea I bought that too lol. It smells soo good too.
So far so good on my body progress for the month! :) Its just in time! It's pretty much May and its almost time for everyone to bust out the skimpy sexy clothes!

I'm ready!

My Last Month of High School! :(

I can't believe that starting Wednesday, it will be my last month of high school. It feels like not too long ago I was in the 4th grade imagining my high school senior year. Now it has finally come to reality. With a few exceptions and changes to that reality lol. I didn't know that I would be going to an arts school, and I definitely never expected to be a high school mom. But all those unexpected things are what makes my life better than expected :)
In this final month, there will be so many activities we will be doing so keep checking back later!

Hugs and Love!

Gabriella is 4 months old!

My big girl is 4 months today!!!
I feel like crying. As a matter of fact I did. Lol. I can't believe that I'm already "looking back" at her old pictures and videos from when she was a newborn. Now she is just growing by the minute and I thought I was prepared for these moments but it looks like I'm not. I'm already starting to think of her 1st birthday lol. Can't tell the thoughts and ideas of those yet :P
This week is an exciting week. Since Gabriella is now 4 months old, she has to get her second round of immunizations. So this Friday we are going to the doctor. And then Saturday we are getting ready to develop her next milestones... starting rice cereal and crawling. :) We're going to take a trip to Babies R Us and buy her a highchair and some baby jumpers and walkers! I'm strangely excited for this new stage in both of our lives. She's become more aware and used to how her new world works. No more swaddling!

Sorry I haven't been posting that much this month. There just hasn't been alot of exciting things going on this month. But remember to follow me on Twitter and Instagram for even more fun!
