IMG_0076

Because you love his romantic side. And he loves seeing you smile.
  • After all this time, you are still each other’s favorite person to spend time with.

    So why not use this February 14th as just another reason to spend that time together doing something fun?

    Need some ideas? Here you are!

  • 1. Cook something yummy together

    Find a new recipe you both want to try. Or take a cooking class together. Watching his inner chef come out will be cute. And in the end, you get to enjoy a yummy meal together.

  • 2. Take a dance class

    So your cha-cha might not be the smoothest thing ever. But he thinks it’s cute. Try learning some new dance moves together that you can use at home later on when your favorite song comes on the radio.

  • 3. Visit a farmer’s market

    Pick out some fresh ingredients for salsa, or grab some fresh fruit. Or head to a winter market for squash and jarred goodies.

  • 4. Go on a dinner cruise

    A delicious dinner while surrounded by water and stars – need we say more?

    Or, if this doesn’t fit the budget at the moment, spend the evening planning the details of a future vacation, and then start saving so you can take it.

  • 5. Visit a museum or art gallery

    Pick one that you both think sounds interesting, and see what new things you learn.

  • 6. Go bowling

    Winner gets to pick where you go for dessert.

  • 7. Take a hot air balloon ride

    Unless one of you dislikes heights. You want this to be fun, remember?

  • 8. Re-create your first date

    Take her to the restaurant you first took her to. Talk about when you first met. Reminisce about the little details of that time together.

  • 9. Make s’mores

    And snuggle in a warm blanket under the stars.

  • 10. Go to a play

    Dressing up for a nice evening out can be refreshing and fun for both of you.

  • 11. Visit a new city or town together

    Go exploring and see what cool places you discover. Find an old town to walk around while holding hands, or try a new restaurant you stumble upon.

  • 12. Make ice cream sundaes

    Go shopping together beforehand to pick out all the toppings. Or grab some root beer and ice cream for root beer floats.

  • 13. Go hiking

    If you go often, go to a new spot you’ve been wanting to try together. Maybe even bring along a picnic.

  • 14. Play tennis

    It’s a date and a great workout all in one.

  • 15. Go swimming

    Find a heated pool or some hot springs or hot tubs and relax.

  • 16. Have a spa night

    Book a couples massage or some facials.

  • 17. Have a perfume/cologne date

    Go out and smell some new fragrances, and then help each other pick one that you both like. You’ll have a cute date and get your Valentine’s Day gifts for each other picked out at the same time.

  • 18. Try a couples yoga class

    Because why not use Valentine’s Day to de-stress, stretch and feel great afterward?

  • 19. Attend a sports game

    A night out with a little cheering while eating good food may be just what you both need.

    Give one of these a try this Valentine’s Day – and then use the others for regular date nights with your spouse, and see how much closer you become.

The Sorcery Code ( Book Review ) by Dima Zales

tumblr_m8xq11ouXA1qjfe1zo1_500

The Sorcery Code (The Sorcery Code: Volume 1)

by Dima Zales  (Author)

A book about magic.

-The sorcery code is a book about magic.
I’m not a big fan but decided to review it anyways. 

If you like stories about sorcery than this book is for you! Although There is a lot of better potential for the story.

Blaise, An outcast, of his own choosing, a once respected member of the Sorcerer Council, creates a powerful “being”, Gala. He wanted to create a special object that would be magical enough to share with all the peasants so they would have the means for their crops. He felt it was important for anyone to do magic. 

—————

Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of. She will do anything to experience the world . . . even leave the man she is beginning to fall for.

Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancée, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . .

Day 2 what I wore

 

I started a 30-day photo challenge and only did a day one.
Didn’t get to keep going. My days have been so busy I can’t keep up with all I’ve set up myself to do.

I started way too many challenges and I never finish LOL.
I wanted to upload all the images up to date so I can catch up in this post and go on day to day as the days go on. I do apologize to the people who follow my blog and expect it to be so right all the time, but hey! I’m only human.

First of all, I’m a wife, ( to a pastor of a church ) and a mom to 3 teens 🙂 ( so this include all mom and wife duties LOL)

We go to church 3 times a week

 

I’m currently on a 365-day prayer challenge that I do every day ( just don’t have the time to post it )

I’m on a Theological school that I have to study and do a test every month ( that’s in Portuguese and extremely hard because of the language )

 

Untitled
Day 3 Clouds

 

I’m taking a 6.00.1x  introduction to computer science as a tool to solve real-world analytical problems at MIT. ( also really hard and time-consuming )

I have online media groups that requires me to post every day or every week in order for me to remain a member ( time-consuming )

So keeping up with all this and feeling sick, and all doctors appointments is not easy but it’s something I love to do. It’s me 🙂

I just wanted to ask for patience .. and say thank you!

#ReviewWithElly Alina Skin Care

I have used this product 2x a day every day since the day I got it. That’s about 3 weeks. I think it was a short time for the visible results I got. I read many reviews on this product and I read a lot of negativity about it. People saying that the company basically paid for those reviews. Well, yes, I got the product for free, but the results and my opinion, no one can make it up. It’s honest. I wanted to come here and write an honest review. But not just write, I wanted to show my untouched ( no photoshop) photos to you of the results.
 photo IMG_1277_1.jpg

The directions on the package of this product says not to use on your eyes. I wasn’t sure if that meant not to apply to the dark area under the eyes. I’m 36 years old and I don’t have any spots ( dark spots ) on my face or any wrinkles or lines, besides the very dark spots under my eyes so I used it on all my face including my eyes. Or should I say especially there. you will be able to see the difference and judge for yourself.

My honest and unbiased review of this product is that this product rocks, now I will continue to use it till its all done and will buy more. Thank you, Alina, for giving me the opportunity to try your product.

NOTE: People with dry or sensitive skin that have never used a Vitamin C skin care product may experience a slight stinging sensation during the first few applications. This is a normal and typically goes away within a few seconds. It will happen every time you apply. Should you experience redness, swelling or discomfort after using the product, please discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional. I received this case at a discounted/free price in return for my honest review.
