Happy New Year!!! Still hard to believe that 2018 is here!
2017 was a roller coaster of emotions for me, but it was also a time for learning about me as a person. The highs were that I was growing spiritually, I was learning what makes me happy, Forevershauni is doing great, I’ve reached a global audience I never thought I would have and my material is just as good as any other blogger. On the low end – ending relationships and loosing a valued member of my family.
For 2018 I decided not to let one little distraction take me away from reaching my goals. I didn’t physically write down any goals last year or even do a vision board – it was just things each month I knew I wanted to achieve and I set myself up to achieve those goals each month.

I finally found someone that can do my lashes and she is actually reasonable and her work is
really sooooo good. Imperial Luxe LLC is the truth. These are my before and after pictures from my first appointment.
A couple weeks ago I wanted some crab legs and decided to get some from the grocery store. Let’s just say they were bomb.com
Took my mini me back to school shopping, it still amazes me how much she has grown. I love when we spend time together – make me want a daughter – one day!
Showing off one of favorite pair of shoes to wear when I’m running errands or whatever I threw them on to run to grab pizza with my Ashley and Jace one night.
As the world knows South Carolina – Columbia to be an exact was a hot spot to see the solar eclipse. This was the only photo that I was able to take. It was pretty cool to see and experience. It was a little scary when the animals and the bugs started going crazy once it got dark.
Let’s just say that I won’t be cooking any bacon in the oven anytime soon. It looks worse than it really is.
A couple Saturdays ago – as you know I celebrated my birthday – these were some shots from it. So thankful for all the text, emails, comments and phone calls. I felt so loved and appreciated. And yes I was extra and had a filter for my birthday!
This past weekend my college room mate and fellow Virgo sister celebrated her birthday – it was so much fun and I was happy to see her because it’s been a while since we’ve hung out together. It brought back so many memories of the good ol’ days in college! I love this black dress I wore – forever21 – great to have in the closet for unexpected nights or even when you want something classy, but fun!
It has been 3 months since I started back on my blogging journey. Time really does fly when you are having fun! It hasn’t been the easiest three months but it’s been a learning experience for me. With everything there will good and bad things that happen.

Spring is here which means it is time to get the duster out, declutter the house and buy all the hydrangeas.
When I say declutter, I don’t mean move it from one location to another – it’s when you actually go through it and decide if it is essential, if it can be donated or sold. I have a hard time with this especially with clothes because I’ll say to myself “oh I can wear that later – if i loose weight” but not this go round.
I consider myself a clean person (I use to have a routine of cleaning on Thursdays after work before Grey’s came on) anyway, but when spring time rolls around I want to have everything fresh and clean. These are a few things that I do around the house to get ready for spring and these are also some of my cleaning habits that I have.
- Clean and wipe down baseboards
- Wipe down blinds
- Wipe down and dust lighting and ceiling fans
- Throw out junk mail and stacks of unneeded papers
- Vacuum furniture
- Deep clean microwave, oven and dishwasher
- Deep clean inside of the fridge and throw away unused / old items
- Clean out and organize pantry (cabinets)
- Rotate / flip mattresses
- Wash all bedding and duvets
- Typically change out bedding colors for the spring/summer months
- Go through closet and create donate / throw away piles of unused clothing
- Organize what I’m keeping by color
- Dust everything
- Clean out makeup and medicine cabinets (throw away responsibly)
- Deep clean brushes and wipe out containers
- Wash all bathmats or get new ones
- Deep clean shower and tub
- Clean out drains and faucets
- Baking soda, vinegar and hot water — best thing ever to clean drains
- Deep clean grout
I’m not super woman so all of the cleaning won’t happen all in one day it typically happens over the span of two days – because I do get side tracked easily (gift and a curse).
Once I’ve cleaned everything I like to light candles or put in new plug ins and fresh flowers (hydrangeas) to brighten the place up.
I found this recipe while ago on the hunt for a Mexican street corn dip – weird right I know. Once I read through the ingredients I thought it was pretty simple and would be a good fit for a tailgate party we were attending. It takes about 10 minutes to make and it pleasing to anyone – whether they on a healthy journey or not.

I’ve lived in South Carolina all my life, but I have never been to Greenville before, neither has Chaz. When one of our good friends moved to Greenville, we knew that we HAD to go for a weekend and see what it was all about. They were having people over for New Year’s so we made a weekend trip out of it.

The final thing that I’m working on for 2017 is expanding my faith. Growing up I went to church every other Sunday, summer revivals, church meetings, programs – whatever the church was having I was at, due to the fact that my mom was church secretary for 30+ years. The sad part is that I know the bible but I don’t know it the way that I should know it – for someone that was at church as often as I was.
