#UBC - Finding Yourself


     I have been there and done that with the losing myself and then going through heck and back to find myself. I have made it through the rough bumps in the road and somehow someway I just keep pushing along. And sometimes on some days when I just don't know if I can do it anymore, I take a deep long deep breath and then I just keep moving forward.
    I am DETERMINED to not look back on the past mistakes in my life. I am determined now more than ever to show my kids that you can do whatever it is that you want too do out of life whether its being a stay at home parent like I was but, also worked and took care of the family and contributed or if you want to go to college and get things done in your time online taking courses instead of sitting in the classroom. You can do whatever you set your mind too!! I know because I've been there and done that! 
   I was/am a stay at home mom and I helped take care of and raise and contribute to raising 4 children. They are all young adults now and two of them have gone there own way and two of them have stayed with me being by my side through thick and thin and showing me that they have unconditional love for me when others have talked down to me and told me that I would never do things that I've now done and told me that I was no good etc. I've proved them wrong EVERY one of them I've proved wrong and no matter if they still talk about me behind my back etc. I've proved not only to myself but also to my two boys that have been with me through the thick and thin that I am a very strong and determined woman and that when I have my mind set on doing something, I WILL get it done! Sometimes it might take a little longer than I had hoped/planned but, it will and has gotten done.
   So to all of you out there going through things that no one knows but you....take a deep breath and just take it one day at a time. Things will find a way and work out in the end. No matter how it feels right now, things won't feel like that forever. Things have a way of working out for the best in the end. Might take a little longer than you wanted but have faith and never lose hope because things will happen if you want them too bad enough!

#UBC Ramblings for the 1st day of the new month!


Good evening everyone :) And I hope that you all are each having a great day and awesome start to the new month that is already upon us!

Can you believe that its another month gone and that HALF this year is over??!! I can't! How many more months until Christmas?? LOL



I know that this is going to be a great month :) I'm looking forward to it getting better and better. Only positive thoughts from this girl! Even though things are tough and rough sometimes, they will get better. Like here where we live, people outside being loud and obnoxious getting into fights right outside our door with them fussing and cussing up a storm and then one of them being pushed or someone hit our door its crazy!! But I know that here shortly we will find a better plae and get out of here and get away from the great life of apartment living...I won't miss it!!

So I'm going to be doing a LOT of house hunting this month! And hopefully we will find something that is within my budget and in a good neighborhood. This city where we're at, its a mixture of good/bad/good...one house can look great and 2 houses down it can look crappy so its just a matter of hoping that we can find something that will fit what we need and not come across any issues.

We are considering getting us a dog, not sure which one/what breed as of  yet. I think that I'll still take the boys to the shelter and we will pick out 1-2 there...I want to help animals and it breaks my heart the last time I went to one I couldn't take all the pets home with us!! I got my baby boy Oreo (cat) from a shelter and I want to save another one. I think that the boys will be able to find one each is my thinking and then that way they will have a friend and won't be alone out in the yard running around and I just have always thought that 2 is better than 1 but where we was at the time of getting Oreo, that's all I could get was one since there was already 2 there....Very thankful, blessed and grateful that I was able to get Oreo when I did!

I'll have more about our looking for a house and other things coming up this month - daily - so check back often to see what this Queen of Random is up too!

Have a great weekend and stay safe!!

#Giveaway Elmo's Fave Stories Giveaway



“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.” Elmo's Favorite Stories DVD Review & Giveaway
 Hosted By: Holiday Contest and Sweeps
Sponsored By: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment
Presents The: Elmo's Favorite Stories New Release DVD Review & Giveaway 3- Lucky Winner

Holiday Contest and Sweeps is pleased to bring you another great New Release DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, "Elmo's Favorite Stories". This fun packed DVD will give readers of all ages hours of fun and entertainment. Let's see what we can expect from this amazing DVD. Three lucky winners that live in the Continental United and are of 18+ Years of age will each win a copy of the DVD. It’s story time for everyone’s favorite furry friends on Sesame Street as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, the non-profit, educational organization whose mission is to help kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder, release Sesame Street: Elmo’s Favorite Stories on DVD and digital July 5, 2016. This entertaining DVD features stories that will engage your family’s imagination all summer long! Sesame Street: Elmo’s Favorite Stories will be priced to own for $14.97 SRP.



Sesame Street: Elmo’s Favorite Stories is a compilation of engaging and educational stories for preschool children. In one story, a disagreement arises between Big Bird and Elmo as they are about to act out one of Elmo’s favorite stories, “Maria the Cowgirl.” In another story Abby recalls that green creatures are often princes in disguise! Abby soon concludes that Oscar could be a frog—he is green isn’t he?—and therefore is also an enchanted prince! She thinks that a kiss is the only way to break the spell and turn Oscar back into Prince Oscar. Children will learn early reading skills such as letter recognition, letter sounds, and story structure (beginning/middle/end) as the Sesame friends use their imaginations to make up and act out all kinds of stories. 

Elmo has a lot of favorite stories, and he wants to share them all with you! Join Sesame Street's furry red monster and friends as they read all about Humpty Dumpty and Maria the Cowgirl. Can they reenact Maria's showdown with Bad Duck without ruining the happy ending? These little monsters also love making up their own stories! Rosita writes a story about her Mexican heritage, Elmo illustrates his Letter G Adventure, and Abby, Zoe, and Rosita write their very own princess story! Can the princess herself save the day?
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is thrilled to be releasing Sesame Street: Elmo’s Favorite Stories on DVD” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “As the #1 top-of-mind preschool show with moms, we’re sure families will enjoy this latest compilation of educational and fun episodes featuring Elmo and the gang.” The DVD features 7 street stories, including "Maria the Cowgirl," "Humpty Dumpty's Big Break," "The Princess Story," "The Planet G," "Mi Amiguita Rosita" and "Abby Thinks Oscar is a Prince." A Big Thank you To Our Sponsor Warner Bros. Home Entertainment

I think that any little one would enjoy this :) 

Wishing you the best of luck of winning!
