I was thankful to find out that I won when I did(almost a week later), since they were having a sale for 20% off their dresses. So the gift card plus the discount actually made the dress I had my eye on affordable. The word is "winning!"
So now I wait for it to arrive and see if they match my shoes that I love. Hmmmm....I can only claim the responsibility on why my daughter is a little fashionista. She loves to match up clothes with shoes as much as I do! So what do you guys think of the shoes? Do I have a match?
"A woman truly feels beautiful when she recognizes that she is exquisite the way she already is: a wonderful, unique, and exceptional individual." ~ Yuliya Raquel. Well I have certainly be inspired to keep on entering and maybe, just maybe, I'll keep on "winning." Til the next time.....

Do you love ribs as much as I do??? Well I love beef ribs!! There is nothing better than the taste of a good barbecue sauce on top of them. Ribs happen to be one of lil mama's favorites.
I have attempted a few recipes and have found one that I absolutely adore. It is a higher on the sugar content, but it's well worth the splurge every now and again. You can check out "Should Be Illegal Oven BBQ Ribs" here . The recipe calls for a 12 ounce bottle of barbecue sauce. When I would make ribs before, I would use one of the cheaper ones like Kraft's BBQ sauce and just doctor it up. I came across Stubb's BBQ Sauce . It was on sale so I decided to try it out. The taste is wonderful! If you want to splurge, I do recommend it. It's also all natural and gluten free.
If you try the ribs, make sure you let me know how they come out. Enjoy!!

Remember when it was dolls, dolls and more dolls........Well neither of us are actively collecting anymore. I still enjoy looking at them, but have been focusing my attention elsewhere. Nothing has really tugged at my heartstrings enough lately, for me to purchase one. That of course could still change. Lil mama normally buys me a Byron Lars barbie for Christmas, but I was just not feeling this year's doll. I am certainly enjoying the Michael Kors Gold perfume she gave me instead. It smells divine!
On another note, one of my goals this year is to begin using coupons more often. So if I find some worth sharing, I will be more than willing to share here. A friend of mine had told me over Thanksgiving that I need to make sure that any nail polish I let lil mama use is free of formaldehyde. I just happen to come across a brand of nail polish called Zoya. Lil Mama and I are hooked because of all the beautiful colors they have. I was able to get several during their flash deals leading up to Christmas. They now are offering a great deal where you get two nail polishes free, and you just pay for shipping. Check it out at the blog here. The last time I got a pedicure I took my own nail polish. It saves on time too since I don't have to look through all the colors.
Well this has been kind of an eclectic blog today, but I just wanted to get back in the groove of things. If you are on twitter make sure you follow me at @MzNayLuv. It's good to be back. Til the next time.....

As I look forward to 2010, I am striving to make myself LET GO and LET GOD! If I want peace, I need to learn to look deep inside of myself to find it with God's help. He alone can truly grant me what I need. This past week the pastor quoted one of the scriptures that I really needed to hear:
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28, New King James Version)
I am leaving all of my burdens of 2009 with God! I am letting go and letting God! I will begin 2010 with a new outlook on life, and a new sense of purpose.
May God grant you peace and prosperity in the upcoming year. Happy New Year to All!

19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:19-25, New King James Version)
Let's continue to be faithful! I posted a James Ingram song earlier this week and thought I would post his version of Blessed Assurance, which I love.
Everyone have a blessed weekend!
