Life Happens

Oh, hello.

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on us.

I’ve been quiet busy lately. Lots has been going on with myself and family this summer. I’ve popped in to WP from time to time, reading posts and giving a “like” here and there. I admit I’m behind on most of your posts.

I have stopped job hunting. The Exec and I spoke in length regarding my position and where I see myself being after graduation; which has now been postponed (yet again) another semester. We are in the works of my role expanding. In fact, I received a very nice raise! One I can live off of. My first thought when he told me was “I can catch up on bills!” The Exec received a promotion and instead of overseeing 3 departments he is now in charge of almost 7. Since his role is expanding he won’t have much time to over see my area. We (more so, him) are in talks with higher ups to have me take over my area of the department! He just doesn’t have time for it and I have expressed plenty of interest to him that my goal is to take it over from him and continue it on for as long as I can. I really hope this comes through! Until then, I’m enjoying the new raise!

Family….sigh… Sister #1 gave birth to a beautiful nephew who will be 3 weeks old tomorrow. He has been in the NICU since he was born. No idea when he will be able to leave. Parents are in a rut. Mom had an accident back in January when a moving truck reversed into her, thus totaling the car and them down a car from 3 to 2. Brother left to college in a different part of the state, leaving them with 1 car (Dad’s). Dad’s car caught fire at a gas station last week. If you live in AZ you may have seen in on the news, the choppers were everywhere. They are now without a car. Dad has a motorcycle, so this will help him to and from work.

I’m going out on a limb here, but my parents have little to no money now and so my siblings (sister) and I took it upon ourselves to set up a GoFundMe account for them. We are hoping to at least get them enough for a down payment on a car. They are struggling enough with bills as it is, so we are hoping the money raised can help them.

My parents have had a pretty rough year. We aren’t ones to complain or say “woe is me”, but it’s just not fair the way they have had life handed to them this year. If you are interested, and again I’m out on that limb of risking my anonymity to help the folks, I can send you the link to the GoFundMe if you are interested in helping or would like to share it: Email: Sweetsugarsb@Outlook.com. The few of you who are now connected to me on my personal Instagram may have seen my post.

As mentioned before my graduation date is delayed another semester. But I’m okay with it. At the end of December I will receive 2 certifications; 1 for Personal Training and another for coaching. I’m pretty excited and this looks to be an easy semester. I’m on the home stretch finally!!

Now…if only I can pass these damn math classes.

Happy 4thΒ 

Hope my fellow Americans had a good holiday today! 


I spoke to a few men today; whom I haven’t had much contact with lately. Not out of own will, but by busy lives and loss of communication on each end. Still, nice to catch up. And it looks like something may be in future with a past lover. 

It seems the Arizona heat has gotten to my fur-baby (my cat). Last week, she practically collapsed in the hallway when I went up to her and began panting hard. She had just came in from the patio (or as I call it, Catio). We put an ice pack around her and almost forced water in her before she finally started drinking. 😿 she’s been doing much better since! She’s been keeping inside since I’ve been here. 

I’m off to watch my brother set off some fireworks (such a pyro, that one). πŸ˜‚

Enjoying Sunday

I’m just trying to enjoy my Sunday afternoon. 

I’m just trying to enjoy my brownie and grande Coffee Frapp. 

I’m just trying to enjoy this new bra I got. 

I’m not sure why your eyes keeping wandering over in my direction πŸ‘€


πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚breaking hearts over here in Vegas in 90β€’ heat. How’s your Sunday?? 

Cruel Summer

Hanging out in Phoenix for a good 2 weeks or so. Cause it’s reaching 100+ in Vegas, so I thought I’d come get away from it for a bit πŸ˜’πŸ˜‚ In reality though there was no point in being at work when the boss man is gonna be gone for a while. So why not work from home/vaca/pool?

Wanna swim? 

29

29

My birthday is tomorrow. 29.

I haven’t really been excited about it for the first time in my life, to be honest. Just seems like it would be another day, with a bonus. I guess that happens as you get older? I still plan on being fabulous, of course!

Since I have no family here I invited 4 or 5 friends to dinner at a hot sushi joint in Vegas. Very popular amongst the locals, same place I took J to a few weeks ago. If anything, I’m looking forward to the dinner. In the morning, I have a photo session for an article that was written about me regarding my work- I’m very honored!

I’m not where I’d thought I would be at 29. However, I’ve come a long way throughout my 20’s. I have more confidence, more sex appeal, and more personal (and professional)Β growth. I feel much like the woman in the photo, powerful, sexy, and staring at her partner in crime as he gets ready to turn heads with her; the world at their fingertips.

Thats something to look forward to, finding that kind of love- or letting it find me, rather.

I’m going into 29 with greater confidence and great appeal.

That’s something to be proud of πŸ™‚
