From Moving on Up to Moving on.

So, I know it's literally been about a year now since my last entry and I sincerely apologize to my readers. I lost my mojo for my blog once we were with out internet for 2 months, after moving to a more remote location in here in Panama. I am LOVING it over here, by the way. We are just over the Bridge of the America's so we are right there to get into the city. It is such a more calm and beautiful area. Anyway, here are just a few reasons that I got side tracked, lost some momentum and negelected my blog this last year:

*Had to wait for the cable service to show up to install internet....two weeks ended up being two months. (not uncommon out here at all either)

* Both of my kids started school..Kindergarden and Pre-K 3...sniff, sniff.

* I was running a small baking business out of my home, and went from baking two days a week to all 5 days (in the work week).

* My brother and his partner came to visit us....soooo fun!

* Got a severe case of food posioning...yuck.

* Found out I was pregnant with our 3rd hijo...praise the Lord...due in three weeks!
*Went on a vacation home to Colorado for 6 weeks.
* Holiday season sets in and well, we all know how that goes.
There are some more "life's happpenings" in there but had to at least name a few of them to redeem myself.
I am finally ready to get back in to blogging (kind of funny that I choose now, when I am due with my 3rd in few weeks) however, I have started a new blog COFFE, MILK & BROWNSUGAR and will no longer be posting on Thirty Something Style. While I still love my fashion and style, my writing and sharing is going in a different direction. While being here in Panama I can not tell you all how many natural remedies I have come across for the healing and wellness of your body. I have learned to use LOTS of things around the house in order to do my daily excersise (don't belong to a gym, and left so many of my things I used back in Colordao) and I have learned to make a happy situation in your home when in a major transition (not easy at all, but doable...with the Lord's help of course;). I want to share, help, encourage and inspire others through my continual findings and enlightments with "life's happenings".
So, you can now check me out at my new location. Just some of my postings will include remedies that you can use to get well, to take care of you body, for your skin care, to cure sore throats, to aid with cuts, along with workout methods you can do right in your own home (btw, I lost all my weight with my first two pregnancies & intend to do the same with this one). Also there is so much to know about foods to eat for health, weight loss and even to keep your moods up. I will even do some style posts here and there, because as I believe, "when you look good, you feel good"! I believe this new direction in blogging will be much more up my ally so I am making the switch....hopefully you do too, and check up on me there.
Cuidate, bendicones y hasta en el otro pagina!

Make it a POINT to......

So, we are getting ready to finally move (still here in Panama, just a MUCH better area..yay!) and in the process we have had to sell some of our furniture because with this move to a nicer area comes a smaller place! Well, when we first posted our furniture on Encuentra 24 (our Greig's list) I was just beside myself to know that we were practically giving away some very nice furniture! As it turns out, the family that bought it (at a SUPER low price) is a couple who just had a baby, have never owned their own furniture, and finally saved to get something for themselves. What a great feeling to know that our loss, turned into a blessing for someone else. Oddly enough, that is the same thing that happened when we moved from the States down here to Panama. A young couple, new baby and not much money got a beautiful set of furniture from us for practically nothing! They even called me later to thank me and tell me how much they loved it! It really feels good to give, even when you are not sure you want to. I believe, that it always comes back to you.... with more too! Not to be the reason to give, but just to show that when you can give, you shall receive. Plus it just makes you realize how good it feels to know that someone else is better off because of something you did!

**Here's a little catch though!!! The movers, who they have picking up the furniture, were supossed to be here on Monday afternoon, then again on Tuesday morning, then again on Wedsnday afternoon and now it is pushed to Friday! Do you think they are coming?? This is actually very typical down here. You don't know when they are really going to show (because nobody calls to confirm), but they will, it's just usually when you are NOT expecting them! There really are some things that I miss about he U.S!

Have a great day!

We have seen the women's tuxedo jacket making head way into our fashion world for a little while now, but it has really hit full swing, making it one hot trend.

As you can see that whether you are wanting to keep it casual, or add some edge when dressing to the 9s, this jacket creates a nice style.
A look to not only think about, but try out.
**"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up bones". ~Proverbs 17:22

Until Next Year...

Happy New Year to all of you bloggers! I have been very bad about keeping up with my blog and honestly will be until I get through the first of the year! Along with the Holiday hustle and bustle, we had my parents here for a visit! It was a GREAT time and we were so sad to send them off this moring. On top of that, we are in the midst of moving so needless to say it has been very busy around here...a GOOD busy though! So until next year....hahaha....I will be a busy lady!!

Happy New Year!

Mis Padres!

Almost forgot*** I did a post on some ideas for Holiday dresses so I thought I would show you mine. We were running late so I didn't take the time to take my shawl off and now I regret that I didn't just take the quick minute (literally) to take it off and show the whole dress for the pic! Oh time!!
