Reunion Tower: Family Friendly Fun!!!!



I always know I'm at home in the great state of Texas when I see "The Ball" or Reunion Tower but in all the time I have lived in DFW I have never been up in the ball mainly because I had no idea I even could unless I was eating at the restaurant that sits inside "the ball" at Reunion Tower. I am excited to tell you guys just how wrong I was. Check out this information about Reunion Tower and I even have an awesome coupon for you guys to use when you take your family.

From 470 feet up you'll experience breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views, high-definition zoom cameras, interactive touch screens, telescopes, photo ops and an indoor/outdoor observation deck that lets you see for miles in any direction.

National Flip Flop Day


Today was created for people like me! Don't get me wrong, I would rather be barefoot but as soon as it gets slightly warm, I'm in flip flops. I love flip flops so much that I literally keep a pair tucked in my car for when I'm off work....no flip flops in the hospital! At one point I was buying a pair every trip to the store. I mean most of the time they are super cheap! That's especially good since my one little doggie likes to chew them if she can get a hold of them.

Dollar Tree Has Them!

Old Navy Has Them (and on sale too)!

Target Has Them!

Walmart Has Them!

BUT my most fave flip flops ever came from Ross! They were Tommy Hilfiger and I had them for 6 years before I had to retire them!

Garnier Skinactive Hydrating Mask Review

Happy Tuesday!!!!

Last week I got my first ever Redbook Beauty School Beauty Box in the mail. 
#rbkredbeautysweepstakes

Inside were some great things but today I am going to talk about the Garnier Skinactive Hydrating Mask. Let me preface by saying I have sensitive skin. I love trying new products but I am always a little leery because I never know what the reaction is going to be for my skin.
http://www.garnierusa.com/products/skincare/moisture-bomb/hydrating-sheet-mask/the-super-hydrating-sheet-mask.aspx

This is the one that I got in my Beauty Box. I am admitting that I am a little old school and am used to the mask you smear all over your face and then either peel or wash off. To be honest, I had never used an actually face mask up to this point but both my daughters have and they love them. With them both being gone right now I don't have to worry about sharing or them wanting to be the tester. 

I took my make-up off using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water they sent, washed my face, showered and ripped the package open, after reading the directions of course. Again, possibly because I am just used to an old school type mask but it was goopy with stuff. The directions say to open the mask with the blue side facing out. A word of advice, figure out where the fold is and open it first there. I had a little bit of a challenge but in the end I figured it out.
I never could manage to get all the wrinkles out. My nose is tiny so that part I had to adjust to be able to breath. It was cool, it felt good on my face and it smelled refreshing. The directions say to leave the mask on for 15 minutes. Joseph told me the whole time how much I looked like Hannibal Lecter from Silence of The Lambs. The mask came off easily and per the instructions I tried to rub the excess into my face with minimal luck. I don't know if my face is just hydrated or if there is just so much product that you can't rub it all in. It wasn't heavy or sticky and three days later my face still feels smooth and amazing. If you have sensitive skin I recommend it because I have had zero break outs since using the mask.

You can find it at your local retailer which for me is Walmart. I give it 5 stars!




“Redbook and Garnier provided me with the mask I used in this post.The opinions I shared about using the product are my own, and Redbook nor  Garnier Told me what to say or how to say it. I have included a provided hashtag in the post as part of a sweepstakes/contest."

Why I Decided To Become A Nurse

Today our clinical homework assignment was to write a paper about why we decided to become a nurse. I decided I would share. I'm honest about some of the things I went through in life and I thank God He brought me through them. Here you go:



Why I Decided To Become A Nurse

              The road to becoming a nurse has been a strange one. I can’t say that it has ever really been a single event or even some significant event. Growing up my grandmother was an aide. I would go to work with her sometimes and I knew I didn’t want to do what she was doing. My aunt on the other side of my family was an RN. For much of my younger childhood she worked in the OR. It wasn’t until she became a home health nurse and had my cousins and I out for a week in the summer that nursing ever even crossed my mind. She gave us a bunch of medical supplies and let us set up a make shift hospital. We taped IV tubing to one another, put lotion on my aunt’s legs and scraped it off with a tongue depressor. It is one of my favorite memories from childhood but then I became a teenager and had all the answers and being a nurse was not one of them.


              Nursing didn’t cross my mind again until after I started to college to get my degree in social work. I knew I wanted to help people because I had been helped. At one time in my life I had a drug problem and I was living in a homeless shelter. My family had to give me some tough love. That experience changed my entire life and I wanted to give back to people, to help people because someone helped me and helped change my life.  During the time I was in school to get a degree in social work, I lived in a small town with a volunteer fire department. It didn’t take long for me to join the ladies auxiliary but I wanted in the truck and to go on calls. The fire calls were wild but it was the medical calls and the MVA’s that I loved to go on. It seemed like every time I got in the car I would come up on an accident scene.  I decided I would bargain with God in a way. I told God that if I was supposed to change my major to allow me to go on a call where I would know for sure. That same night I went on the call that changed things.


              It was the middle of the night and I knew I was going to a rollover accident. A man, his wife and their three children were in a car. The man was driving and he was drunk. He and the wife had on their seat belt but none of the kids did and the 5 year old son was ejected from the car that he ran up on the embankment of the highway and the car landed on top of the boy 1.5 centimeters from his diaphragm. The boy lived. The dad went to jail and I knew that I was supposed to help people in this way not sitting behind a desk handing out a voucher for a meal during holiday time. I changed my major from arts to science because I was going to be a paramedic. Two weeks into A&P I my professor asked me to stay after class. He was a retired vet. After having me explain why I wanted to become a paramedic, he suggested I become a nurse. For me, I wasn’t so sure and then my grandmother, the one who was an aide, the one who had every heart surgery and medication she could have was sick and at the end of her life.



              We were close. It was hard to see the person who took care of everyone else not being able to care for herself. By this time I had already gotten my C.N.A. because if I was going to change my major again I needed to be sure. That last day that her and I had together not only solidified my choice to become a nurse but it impacted what type of nurse I want to become. That last day we had a conversation where she told me she wanted me to be a nurse and that she wanted me to do something with my life but it was all the things I did for her that day, to comfort her and make her time here comfortable that made me know that while the adrenaline of the ER or ICU sounds like what I was looking for, hospice is my calling. Working as an aide with hospice patients made me know even more. I decided to become a nurse when I quit denying my calling.

Sun Safety

Summer is one of my most favorite seasons! Being a Texas gal, hot is 9 months out of 12 but when the mercury in the thermostat climbs, I'm looking for some cold water to get in. Being a nursing student, mom and survivor of the worst sunburn ever, I believe strongly in sun safety!


We all know we should use sunscreen but did you know that 60% of adults reported having a sunburn last year. 

So How Much Sunscreen Should We Use?


It only takes 1 oz., which is about the size of a normal shot glass, to cover your entire body in sunscreen! You should apply sunscreen 30 minutes before you go into the sun so it has time to absorb into the skin and you should reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours!



There are a million sunscreens on the market Joni! Which one do we use?



You need a broad spectrum sunscreen with a MINIMUM SPF of 15! Pretty simple right? If you read ingredients you'll find there is little to no variation between brands. Sunscreen should be thrown out every 2-3 years but if you are going outdoors quite often, you should go through an entire bottle quickly.

What Else Can You Do?



Wear sunscreen on your lips.
Wear a sun hat or broad rimmed hat.
Protect your eyes with sunglasses.
Wear long sleeved shirts.
Stay Hydrated.
Avoid the direct sunlight during peak hours of 10am-4pm.
Get yearly skin checks from your doctor.

My Favorite Things About Me

It can be strange to write about yourself sometimes. It can also be even more strange when you are asked to write about your favorite things about yourself but I'm up to the challenge and I am going to be brutally honest!

I am hard-headed!

This may not sound like something I should like about myself and at times, especially growing up, being hard-headed wasn't always a good thing. Why I like this about myself is because it has given me the ability to never give up and never take no for the final answer. If I had given up I would not be who I am today, I would not be in nursing school and honestly, with all the things I've been through in life, I might not even be alive if I had taken no for an answer or not fought for what I wanted. My mom once told me it is one of the qualities she admires about me.

I am funny!

Yes, it counts if you are only funny to yourself. I make my friends laugh, I make myself laugh, most of the time I can make my kids laugh but sometimes, especially with Lexi, she tells me how not funny I am. Life is so short to not be silly and goofy. I've been through too much to not be able to laugh at myself. Even though I am funny, my family will tell you I tend to be uptight.

I work well under stress!

Sounds like a really good answer to an interview question but to I am being honest. For some, stress disables them to the point of not being able to function. For me, stress is a motivator to get it done. Probably why all my assignments are turned in last minute lol.

I love really hard!

This has caused me some heartache in life but I either love all the way or not at all. Loving hard means I have experienced love and the kind of love that you find in movies or books. I love despite flaws, faults and sometimes, lies. I love hard and I love with my whole self but when I get my gut full, I am done.

I am old fashioned in many ways!

Ok I need people to understand that I realize it's 2017 and things are a little different than in 1917 but there are certain things I will never ask a man to do for me and there are things I should never had to ask a man to do for me. I will gladly keep the house clean, manage the children, do the laundry and cook but I never want to have to take out the trash, do anything other than drive my car and put gas in it. I know how to do these things and I will do them but that's something a man should do for his woman. Bring me flowers, hold open the door, give me your coat when it's cold and let me have the umbrella in the rain. In turn your clothes are hung in the closet, organized by what they are and then by color so it's easy for you to find them, I'll go out of my way to make sure lunch is packed and dinner is hot on the table when you get home.

I grew up poor and in the hood!

I love this about myself because I take nothing for granted. I have never forgotten where I came from and where I've been. Growing up poor made me learn to budget, to save, to do without and figure out how to get what I need. Growing up in the hood opened my eyes to a world I would have otherwise never known. Because of where I grew up my ideas about life tend to not match how I look. I can get in doors because of my blonde hair and blue eyes and then tear them apart with knowledge and logic plus having some streets smarts has come in handy more than once.

Let's get physical!

My eyes!

They are the one thing I love and hate when people compliment them, especially when I was single and it was someone male. I mean do you really think they are all that or are you using it as a pick up line? My eyes are blue but not a regular blue. I am obsessed with my eyes and hate that I have to wear glasses and am not a candidate for contacts.

My nose!

I have a tiny, turned up nose. It's just cute and the same goes for my tiny little ears.

What do you love about yourself?

Happy Birthday Rhiannen!

Most of the time I spend more time with my nursing school friends than I do my own family. I remember the first day of orientation. I wasn't so sure about the people in orientation with me. The statistics say that half or less will graduate, so you take a look around and you figure out who you are going to try and get to know because after all, these are the only people who know what you are actually going through. Sitting behind me and one desk to the left was this blonde girl with glasses. Her glasses were the first thing I noticed because it seemed like there were only 3 of use who were wearing glasses.
Yes, I stole her pictures but I can do that and it's ok. At first I wasn't sure that I liked her. I mean she had no issue speaking her mind and a filter, well, she still doesn't have one of those but that's one of the things I love about her. She gives it to you straight up without a chaser. When we moved out of the computer lab and into the actual lab/classroom for people who like to talk, I decided quickly that Rhiannen was going to be my friend.

If I could manage to get a baby goat in the picture and some Kendra Scott earrings it would give you just a glimpse into her personality. I can count on Rhiannen to give me a laugh every day, someone I can vent to without fearing judgment but thankful for an honest opinion. I've gotten to know her pretty well from the way that her neck turns red when her anxiety levels really start to go up or the way everything on her desk has to be in just the right place. Our nursing class would never be the same without Rhiannen in it.
Besides being pretty and quirky, she is thoughtful beyond belief. One afternoon I was really dragging and forgot a coffee cup at the house. A quick text and Rhiannen to the rescue.
Another time she handed me this little bag just because she wanted me to know she appreciated me as the class rep. Inside was this beauty which meant she listened to all my stories about Texas.




She is very thoughtful of others. After some issues with the dish soap and scrub brush, she bought a new one for the whole class to use. She is always doing things like that. Rhiannen is the kind of girl you're glad you get to go to clinicals with and that you can share lab experiences with. Who else would play with a butt full of pressure ulcers with you?

She's the kind of friend who will cry with you, laugh with you or at you, will compare stress test result and even eat the donut she swore was going to stay in the box.
I have never met someone quite like Rhiannen and I'm thankful that I get to have just one of her in my life. It's like finding a rare gem that you are lucky to have found. So today we celebrate your birthday! I thank God that we ended up in the same nursing program at the same time. I am blessed to call you my classmate and more important my friend. Never change! Happy Birthday!

P.S. I stole picture from your facebook! Na-Na-Na-Na Boo-Boo!
