FRIDAY FAVORITES



                     Hello lovelies Happy FRIDAY straight out of Spring Break 2017 in Arkansas!!


Spring break is already coming to an end even though I swear it just started!!  I thought I'd join a few friends and link up for Friday Favorites. Please feel free to link up with any or all of these ladies ErikaNarci, and Andrea.

We started off Spring Break with a BANG!!! We took our Vega Beauties to their very FIRST NBA game!! OKC Thunder VS Sacramento Kings!! It was filled with lots of screaming, eating, cheering, laughter and memories that will last a lifetime!

We started our road trip bright and early Saturday morning and of course we are raising diva's so K3 always travels with her necessities: neck pillow, rolling suitcase, Fluffy the stuffed bunny, IPAD ( in her rolling suitcase), her earphones, snacks and drink ( in suite case). " OK, guys I'm packed and ready to hit the road, let's get this party started". This girl always has us laughing, she takes after her daddy, LOVE HER!!

OKC THUNDER GAME...
As soon as we arrived at Chesapeake Energy Arena you could just feel the excitement! Live bands, rock climbing wall, Three point contest, live radio stations, news reporters, face painting and we surprised the girls with a meet and greet with the Thunder Girl ( who were super sweet and all around great girls).

Look at those smiles

Face painting always a must

Thunder WON and the girls had a blast! K2 actually took a quick cat nap for about 10 minutes during the game, how she slept with thousands of fans screaming I'll never know but she woke up and was ready to cheer again!

hello spring



The rest of week has been filled with outside fun, we have been soaking up the sunshine and doing a whole lot of nothing. We are definitely enjoying the whole lot of nothing, life has been so busy lately. I went from stay at home mom to a full time working substitute teacher, which I am LOVING!!

Even though we Vega Beauties have been mastering the skill of doing nothing and relaxing ( which we are mastering by the way), Casa De Vega has been getting a little make over. Right now our bathrooms are getting a face lift! When we built our house our bathroom paint color got messed up and turned out a ugly peach color but we were so excited to move in we just left it and dealt with it till now..

I LOVE this Gray

Next we are adding LED lights

HAPPILY EVER AFTER...

Image result for it is love that sustains a marriage quote



Marriage is love, made to last. Marriage is where love is solidified, hardened, and readied for life's battles. It is only by marriage that love between a man and woman is matured, fortified, and equipped for victory.


The quote above speaks loudly to me and is actually part of a much larger excerpt. I encourage you to read these powerful words with your husband, read them out loud. Then take the time to think, reflect and discuss what they mean."Marriage is more than your love for each other. It has a higher dignity and power, for it is God's holy ordinance, through which he wills to perpetuate the human race till the end of time. In your love you see only your two selves in the world, but in marriage you are a link in the chain of the generations, which God causes to come and to pass away to his glory, and calls his kingdom.

In your love, you see only the heaven of your own happiness, but in marriage you are placed at a post of responsibility towards the world and mankind. Your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more than something personal- it is a status, an office. Just as it is the crown, not merely the will to rule, that makes the king, so it is marriage, and not merely your love for each other, that joins together in the sight of God and man.

As high as God is above man, so high are the sanctity, the rights, and the promise of marriage above the sanctity, the rights, and the promise of love. It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but from now on the marriage that sustains your love." Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

God blessed me 19 years ago when he put this man in my life and made it official 12 years ago when we exchanged our " I do's." God has joined us together for the adventure we call life and knew exactly what he was doing when he did it, Mr V has been there through better or worse, sickness and in health, we have battled our share our storms but no matter what we always come out stronger and together. I hope our marriage is an example to our three beauties that marriage is something to be cherished and taken seriously its till death do us part. What God joins together let NO MAN separate.

OKC Fun

say cheese

 In the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 19:3-6, we find this exchange:
Some Pharisees approached him, and tested him, saying " Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?"

He said in reply " Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female' and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate."

So lovelies, stay fierce and fight for your marriage. Always strive to give your spouse the very best of you, not whats left over after you have given your best to everyone else. Marriage is a gift from God to us, make sure you treat it as such.
