Honey And Coconut Milk Hair Mask

Who doesn't want hair like this?

You know beautiful healthy looking hair. Here's a way to get it.

First pour half a can of coconut milk in a glass bowl.

Now add 4 Tbsps of honey.

Okay, now whisk this all together. And place it in a clean jar. 

Now you're ready to use the mask. Wet your hair, and massage the mixture into your scalp. After a half hour, rinse and shampoo your hair as normal.

The Great Fuqua Reunion

This afternoon a great family reunion began. A family reunion that reunites loved ones that have not had the opportunity to see each other in years. This afternoon my Grandma, my Grandpa, Aunt Tiny, Aunt Beaulah, Aunt Emily, Uncle Louie, Uncle Homer, Uncle Herb, and my sister Mary all had the chance to greet my father as he met them in heaven. While those of us here on earth will miss my father greatly, I am happy that he will be able to spend time with those he has been separated from. He will be able to breath freely, and sing songs at the top of his lungs with his siblings. He will be able to go fishing with his brothers. Plant a garden, and just tell silly jokes to anyone that will listen. And he will hear the words well done my good and faithful servant from his Lord and Savior.

If I Had a Million Dollars

Once again it is time to dream about just how I would spend all that mad money if I had a million dollars to just go out, and blow it on anything.

First, I’d get this necklace, I love the color, and the porcelain beads are gorgeous. Euphorial

Second, a vintage pink dress with blue polka dots. It’s so cute. DesignPhotoGraphics

Of course a kawaii plushy would be on the list this week.Kawaii Pink Bunny

Bottles of Goddess dressing by Annie’s for me and my friends. It tastes so yummy!

And because I had a big bruise that needed help healing this last week I want Mayron's Ouch Stuff that helps with bruises and burns. You can get it through AhaLife.

Announcing the Arrival of Our Little Guy + Birth Story

So if you follow me on Instagram this is old news but for those who don't I am SO HAPPY to FINALLY announce our little guy, "E" arrived last Wednesday, 6/25. He was 7 lbs. 4 oz. 20.5 inches long with a full head of hair! He is perfect in every way! I am SO incredibly thankful to God that He blessed us with this little guy- it was quite the delivery but "E" was totally, completely worth it! 

Strawberry Cheesecake Yogurt Pops

Summer itself screams for creamy, ice cold treats to make a really authentic summer day. Sticky hands and happy smiles are the reward these delicious Strawberry Cheesecake Yogurt Pops. Kids and adults will love them, the kids can help making them too. Creamy, sweet, and tangy they satisfy a sweet tooth without overindulging it. Just perfect for a hot afternoon treat. Beautiful enough to serve or bring to any summer BBQ or pool party get together.

English muffins are one of the very first types of bread that I ever attempted, which is why I always have a soft spot for them. For years I adored English muffins – whether they came from the supermarket out of a packet or in the form of a McMuffin from McDonalds, but it wasn’t until I made my own that I fell completely head over heels in love with them.

This week, we'll be touring Becky's garden again.  This is my third post about her beautiful yard, so be sure to check out the two previous posts to see more of this lovely yard.   Today we'll be looking at the potting area, and you're going to love it.

20 Attributes of Pride: Examining Ego, Hindrance & Deliverance from My Salt, His Light

I recently attended a mind-blowing bible study on the topic of “Pride”. It’s amazing how we hear a word like pride, and automatically think of others – and not ourselves.

So over the weekend it was time for our dog to get his bath.  Usually my husband is in charge of this process but I happened to be in the bathroom and I was looking at the shampoo he picked up awhile back at the pet store and I was like what?!

Homemade Espresso Drinks (Lattes, etc) – No Fancy Machine Needed!from Thrifty N Woman

This cold weather is causing me to seek some solice in a warm, cozy cup of coffee. Well, more accurately, a creamy foamy latte (hazelnut is my flavor of choice this morning). I worked my way through college as a Barista, and have not stopped whipping up espresso drinks since. Now my family and neighbors are the ones drinking my lattes.

Can Being Positive Really Lengthen Your Life?

We’ve all heard about the studies stating that a positive outlook in life will help you lengthen your life, but is it really true? The events over the past couple of weeks in my father’s life have made me a firm believer that yes, it is true. We all thought last week would be it. He was in ICU. His breathing was extremely labored. But through it all he has remained positive. He has joked with us about how the hospital might foreclose on our homes in order to pay for the bill. When we told him not to worry about us, he simply replied. Oh, I’m not. I believe that his ability to live for the moments that are here provided him with extra physical strength to pull through the last round of his illness. His belief that things will work out one way or another has lengthen his life, maybe not by much, but it certainly helped him survive the last challenge he faced. None of us know how many more challenges he will have the strength to face, but I do know one thing. His attitude has provided us all with another day to spend time with us.

Sweet Eve

What happens when a Los Angeles heavy metal band decides to add a little bit more of a pop sound to its music? You end up with the music of Sweet Eve. The band has been playing the club circuit in Los Angeles, and they are working on a new album.

So what does the music sound like if a band moves from heavy metal to the pop scene. You get music with a strong guitar presence. You get music that you want to dance to. And their songs have a little harder edge than most pop songs. Their music kind of reminds me a little bit of Green Day.  

I listened to three of their songs, and my favorite was Dead Like Me. The lyrics are dark, but they also bring up ways to deal with ways to make it through some of the pain individuals are feeling. And of course I liked the faster punk sound the song has.

As we all know bands come and bands go, but bands that work hard at the club scenes, and develop their own sound are the ones that last. This band is certainly working hard, and I hope that all of that pays off for them in the end.

Tatooine Sunset

Yes, this recipe is for all of the Star Wars geeks out there. Remember the beautiful sunset scene in Star Wars? You know the one with the two setting suns? 

Well it’s the inspiration for this simple fun drink that I found through I wanted to see if this drink tastes as good as it looks, and so I set out to make a Tatooine Sunset.

It’s easy to make. It only requires two ingredients pineapple juice, and Rose’s Grenadine. So now you know what you need. Here’s what you do.

Pour some pineapple juice in a glass, and then slowly add some of the grenadine. The two will separate, and you will have a tasty drink that looks like the sunsets on Tatooine.
