Photo Dump Wednesday: New Year and beyond

The year is off to an awesome start. In spite of the current political situation, I am feeling very hopeful and optimistic about 2017. 

To kick off the new year, J took his girls out for lunch and a movie. 

We had a great time. 

Car selfie...

At lunch. 

We saw the movie Sing on December 30th. It was a cute movie but I think some of the humor was more geared towards an older audience. Plus JAE who is often all about the movies fell asleep so clearly, it didn't captivate her like Moana did. 

Check out my baby. I can't believe how fast she is growing. Here she is watching her daddy make his NFL player picks on his game.

Sunday car selfie. First Sunday service of the new year...JOE was excited to go back to Sunday School. 

Incase you haven't visited lately, I have added quite a few items to AyoBE Boutique. Go check it out! And be sure to use code "AYOBE10" to receive 10% off your purchase. 

These lip balm holders are perfect for the cold weather. You don't have to go digging in your purse anymore for them. You can just hook these up to your purse or key chain or lanyard and be good to go!

For that little girl in your life. We now have doll clothing. Your little one can now play "fashion match" with her doll!

I've been working really hard on my weight. Some days I win, other days, I call it a draw and some days are a bust. BUT most days, I am thankful for this body that has helped carry 2 human beings! Women, our bodies are AWESOME!!!
On this particular morning, I was feeling great! AND to make it even more interesting, while at Walmart doing our household shopping, I got hit on and asked for my number! LOL..I told him I was married and he asked "you sure?" 😩. Ummmm...YES!!! 
Still funny though.

I have been posting my workout on instagram as a way to stay accountable. It really helps keep me motivated. So glad J and I decided to get this at home. It makes it VERY convenient to exercise. No excuses.

JAE received this for Christmas from my sister. We couldn't travel with it so my sister had it shipped to us. The minute it arrived and J put it together, she hopped on there and started using it. She really likes it and it entertains her. Fun and learning at the same time. SCORE!

Since I get up early for work, the kids are often sleeping when I am about to leave. One morning last week, while getting ready, I turned around and saw JAE like this. It was too cute! I just had to take a picture. I guess she was deep in thoughts. Plotting how to take over the world perhaps?

I have been trying out a new product on my hair. I've been using the cantu beauty leave in conditioner (after washing) and coconut curling cream (every 3-4 days). So far, I am loving the results. It gets my hair soft and my curls more defined. HOWEVER, it also feels a little heavy. But not enough to bother me. Just heavy enough for me to notice.

One of the pages I follow on FB posted this last week. It was so needed at that moment that I decided to do a screen shot to remind myself often of this. 
My pastor always says "don't be jealous of your neighbor when they are getting blessed because that means God is in the neighborhood and your turn is coming." This was so point on!
Told you 2017 is going to be an awesome year!

Me and my little honey bunches. She was trying to smile or growl. Not sure which one. Snapchat filters has my child growling everytime I say selfie!

And my little JOE always keeps me entertained. She loves to play dress up. This was her "doctor Jordan handy Manny outfit". Thanks Disney Jr.!

These kids! J and I were trying to have some quiet time and just cuddle on the couch while watching TV. But these kids were NOT having it. They decided being ON us was the best way to spend the time. 

And my little Geisha. The cutest Geisha I have ever seen. She said "mommy look, I am a princess!" Yes she is :-D.

Opened 4 fortune cookies on Saturday and got this. Hey, told ya it was going to be an awesome year!

Car selfie. #churchflow

JOE was sick for the last couple of weeks with a cold. She is on her way to a full recovery. But not before passing it on to JAE. Oh the little JAE cuddled up with her daddy.
Oh and check out the picture right above J's head. We FINALLY put up JAE's first birthday picture. I mean, she is almost 2 afterall so it was definitely time to put it up :-).

On Monday, all 3 girls had a dentist appointment. J had to work so I had both girls with me. JOE was awesome and enjoyed the experience. This was her 3rd visit so she is a pro at this. 
JAE on the other hand was NOT letting the dentist look in her mouth. I guess we'll be back in another 6-months to check her out. 

It has been an awesome week so far. Regardless of how you feel about the Inauguration, remember that GOD is ALWAYS in control!
Have a fabulously blessed week and remember to be kind to strangers.
