My Life in August 2017

Hello Everyone!

I didn't plan on taking over a week to post new content on my blog, but life happens lol. I've been on bed rest since the weekend due to pulled muscle in my back. One minute I fine walking to kitchen, and the next minute I was crippled in pain! OUCH! If you're wondering, yes I cried like a baby lol. Pulled muscles are no joke! Let's get started with today's post!


Adding a few inches to my height lol.

I can't go to Publix without getting a sub lol

Since I couldn't sleep and I'm on bed rest I decided to organize my Thank You cards in one of my gold baskets

More thank you cards for my customers

A family friend who's like a sister to me birthday is on September 1st. I decided to give these gifts a few day early since she's going on vacation. She loved them!

  1. Pilar, I'm so sorry you pulled a muscle. I have to tell you, years ago, I lifted a heavy piece of furniture by myself, and a few days later, I couldn't even move. I pulled a muscle, and it was awful. The back spasms were so painful. Through the years it healed, but to this day, if I lift anything too heavy, I can feel it come back again.

    Those are the cutest pair of black and white tennis shoes. The meals that you make always look delicious. I look forward to seeing the Fall project when you're finished. Such pretty colors you chose. Aren't the original OREOS the best? : )


    1. Thanks Sheri! I fell a few years ago when I was in my dorm room and hurt my entire my left side which caused me to have occasional back issues, but last weekend was the worst pain ever! That's glad you healed!

      I forgot how much I loved Converse! I can't wait to show my new Fall projects! Yes the original Oreos are the best lol!

  2. I had a bruised back muscle and back spasms before and it was not fun, hope you are feeling better. Seems like you had a great month!

    1. Thanks Drea! You're right it's no fun at all! August was a pretty good except for that pulled muscle in my back!

  3. I hope you feel better soon Pilar! It looks like you had a nice August! Love the Converse shoes!

  4. I hope your back is okay, Pilar! I love all the food pics! It all looks yummy!

    1. Thanks Ashley! I think I'm going to be okay. Best rest helped a lot last week!

  5. Feel better soon doll. I like how you take portion control seriously. And you are always drinking healthy drinks. It's hard for me to eat healthy sometimes. I love your favorite sandals.

    1. Thanks Nerline! I'm starting to feel better! I do try to watch portion control when I eat meals and drinks. Those sandals have been my favorite for a few years!

  6. Excellent post (as always)!Thank you very much :)

  7. Nice recap. Feel better!

  8. I'm so sorry to hear about your back Pilar :( Back issues can be quite painful. I once slipped a disco in mine and also wanted to cry when I moved. Continue to take it easy and hopefully you'll get back to 100% soon. Looks like you had a nice August otherwise. Happy September!

    1. Thanks Rowena! I've heard slip discs are painful! I've been taking it easy and I think the resr has been helping! Happy September to you as well!

  9. Greattt feed!!

  12. Hey. I know how much pain you were in with your back because it has happened to me. It sucks. Love the selfie pics and the food ones. Those pics are making me hungry. Can't wait to see the finish product of your crocheting project you started.

    1. Thanks Kristen! Back pain is the worse! I'm still having some issues with my back, but it's not as bad a it was two weeks ago. I should have some of my crochet projects up soon!

  13. What a month you had! Lovely bath and shoes. The flower crown is so pretty. Have a lovely day. xoxo Cris
