Crappy Couple of Weeks

  Well to recap the lady doctor visit, supposedly my worrying was for nothing. Everything came back just fine, so I know that I should be happy. She said that when I had the certain procedure to remove the dysplasia, it took the bad cells away and they shouldn't come back. The same with the HPV, having it be a virus it's just like a cold it just goes away on it's own at some point. She truly is a wonderful doctor and made me feel really good about everything.
 My biggest concern was that I wasn't going to be able to have babies anymore. She made me feel good about that, at the moment. She said that we needed to get my hormones straightened out first and then go to the Rheumatologist.
I have been in so much pain, so the trip to the Rheumatologist couldn't come fast enough! We had to wait three months to get in to see her. August 10th finally came and went. I have been down pretty much ever since.
The appointment didn't even last twenty minutes. Tommy said she reminded him of one the NJ Housewives. She was just so forward and came across kind of rude to me. I was very intimidated, actually. I just couldn't believe that a whole year of pain could be explained away in that short amount of time.
She, Dr. C, sent me off to get X-rays of my feet, knees, hips, and hands. I got a shot of steroid and some sort of a pain killer(non- narcotic for once Praise the Lord) and a few new prescriptions.
 So now I am left waiting once again for more blood work to see if what she said was correct or not.
Dr.C said that what I had was most likely Rheumatoid Arthritis.
If it hurts like crap, snap crackles and pops, then it is probably...
Is a very scary disease. If it turns out that this is what I have, it solves many things. Yet, it complicates the future baby making plans.
Dr.C explained that during pregnancy all your symptoms go away.  After delivery, within minutes to a month, the symptoms will come back with a vengeance.
Now I already had a horrific pregnancy with a million complications so we are putting baby making on hold for now with a great deal of tears falling from my eyes.
Tommy is just ready for me to feel better, as am I. I am tired of being so tired. Tired of the pain and weakness. Some days I can't even get out of bed. So my loves, we will see what the Dr. Ladies say.I write this without looking back(so forgive misspelled words), because as I said. Saying no "FOR NOW" to no more babies is so very hard for me. It is just for my safety and sanity. Oh and my sweet Tommy. God please keep him near and dear to me, don't let him give up on me.
Another goodnight.

Star Shine Company Review

  I was watching a show one day and it had Dolly Parton on it, and the host said " You always smell so good!" It got me to thinking... What does Dolly smell like?

Why do we always buy the mass marketed  perfumes that are at the stores and end up smelling like each other?
Yes, I do have two or three favorites.
 But, I even mix and match those so as not to smell like the next girl. I just have never wanted to smell like one of my husband's ex's or vice versa!
Everyone one of us are like that. We all associate certain memories with certain smells.I am just one of those people that has a nose for scents, though.

I am sure at least one of you remember sitting on your dad's lap when you were little and could remember the smell of Old Spice, and now everytime you get a little whiff of it, it brings back a certain childhood memory.
I also avoid certain smells like the plague, because they bring back bad memories!

 I love the smell of a deer horn that someone has grinded for a knife. It reminds me of my Paw-Paw that passed away. He always smelled like them.
 Apple cinnamon, oranges, and cloves smell like my mom's house at Christmas. She leaves a pot of them boiling on the stove when there is company.
Oh, I absolutely can't get enough of it when my husband comes home from a fire. The smell of the wood from a house or the trees that had burned that have been meshed into his clothing and skin. He just smells phenomenal, and I can't get enough of him.   

I am always asking my husband, "What does that smell like?", when there is a fabulous, familiar scent wafting through the air. If I can't figure it out, it always frustrates me.

I had a favorite store I used to shop in when I lived in Phoenix and then it shut down! I was so sad! Then one day a wonderful little company added me while I was doing a giveaway.
They were just like that company I had been searching for!

They sell the most amazing perfume oils in the world!
I ordered 3 sample viles to start out, seeing as how I couldn't just stand there for an hour smelling all of them.
They have 500 scents!
I ordered Orchid, Cherry Blossom, and Awapuhi Seaberry.
To die for. 
I am not so crazy about the Cherry Blossom only because it is such a delicate fragrance. It doesn't pop like the other two.
I absolutely adore the Orchid and Awapuhi Seaberry!
The Orchid has this amazing spice to it, that I cannot get over!
 The Awapuhi Seaberry is just bursting with the scent of the tropical islands calling you to take a vacation.
The oil's are so much better than any perfume I have ever worn. I say that because the essential oil sticks to your skin and allows the fragrance to do so also! Not like a mist from your perfume bottle, that is going to dissapear half way through the day. You are going to use so much less of this oil and it cost's a fraction of the price, allowing you to try so many more fragrances! The samples are 1/16 of an ounce only for about two dollars! You put a dab of oil on all your pulse points so the heat of your body will let the natural fragrance escape when you are at your best. ;) Your neck, your wrists, and just behind your knees are my faves...
I urge you all to go have a look! They have hand dipped incense sticks, incense cones, the perfume oils, mineral makeup, and lip balm!
Their website is
and they have links for everything else there!

Social Parade Follow

  I had it in my head that I wasn't going to do any of these blog hops.
I kind of thought I was being a sell out.
 Then I realized, "You idiot, how in the world are you going to make friends on here, and get your blog out in the blogosphere?!"
So I have begun searching for beautifully made blog hops that have quality blogs and truly beautiful women on the inside, and out. Aren't we all?
Here is one that I have found, that has good morals and rules that I can stand to abide by.

Social Parade Follow Friday
Smart and Trendy Moms

I can't wait to have more follower's and hopefully make some new friends through this whole process!
Thanks ahead for all of you that comment, I am off to go find some of you now!

Vintage Love

 Since I was very little I have always admired the women in black and white films. I grew up in a musical family. My mom could sing and play the bass. I played a plethora of instruments in school. I sang and took some piano lessons. I had to quit not too long after I started, though. I did however steal some of my sister Allison's sheet music and sit in my room with my little Casio and teach myself how to play.
Allison is the one who got me to love music the way that I do now. There was always a musical on in my house. So thank you sister for helping me love my music. I guess she kind of shaped who I am now. We would sit around belting out every word to every song in
 Or, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
I didn't say that I was good then, so Allison don't say a word. I am thankful she didn't have a camcorder then because a video would be on YouTube as we speak...

That love of those movies has turned into my love now of Black and Whites.
I could sit on my sofa all day and watch TCM!
Irene Dunne has fast become one of my favorite woman of all time. She starred in one of my favorite movies of all time. My Favorite Wife, with Cary Grant. Mmm Yum.
The woman from the 40's and 50's just had class and style.  Not like the hoochies from now walking around showing everything they have. No offense.
They just left a little something to the imagination. Even the Pin-Up girls were classy beautiful woman. I wish I could walk into a store and buy that type of clothing, but it just isn't that kind of time. I however, did realize there was a show called Mad Men and that was exactly the kind of life I would love to live. Well I have yet to watch it, so I might need to be careful saying that. But, the clothes are amazing. The hair is phenomenal. I can't get enough.
 I finally came across a few blogs the other day that absolutely blew my mind.
These women are so incredibly beautiful.
I always tell my husband I dream of being the quintessential housewife. To look the part, talk the part. I just need the accessories...
These woman are it.
I will become the woman I know I am on the inside.
I just might need to clean my own mouth out with soap.
Just check out their blogs and you will see what I mean.

This is just one of those things that makes me happy.

Another Doctor Appointment

 I'm scared.
I don't want to go, but I know that I have to.
5 years ago I was diagnosed with HPV.
I don't know where it came from. I was in a monogomous relationship (or os I thought).
Then they discovered that I had dysplasia. You know the bad cells that could turn into cervical cancer? After a few more pap smears all of a sudden all of it suddenly disappeared. They bad cells the HPV, all of it!
Well how the hell does that happen?
That was five years ago.
Now I am here, in this moment having horrible pain, on top of all of the other pain I am going through. The pelvic stuff isn't like my back pain or migraines though. This could be bad.
I am scared.
I have a tendancy to kind of over react, especially when I am alone.
Well, here I am all alone.
And this pain, and the other stuff down there...
Makes me think what if?
What if it's bad enough that we can't have another baby.
I don't want Blayze to grow up without a brother or sister.
I don't want to have to put Tommy (my husband) through all the suffering of having to go through more taking care of me.
Then I think, well we can always adopt.
And if it is the big C, maybe thats why I am always in so much pain and always tired.
There is a huge upside and a really big slide going straight down to the down side.
At 3:45 I will go into the OB/GYNs office kick my heels into those stirrups, yell YEEHAW!
Hold on for dear life as she sticks those damn tools inside me takes samples with what will feel like razor blades.
I will pray to my Father above that everything is ok, and then come back here and vent to my dear blog girlfriends a little bit more!

I guess this is just one of those post on my journey that shows that Life Ain't Always Beautiful.
Maybe next time I will have one that makes me feel happy!

What Makes a Woman Happy?

I started this blog so that I could write about what makes me happy. I guess it is a good thing there are so many days in a year, because I could honestly go on for days!
Then again, if I decided to write about what makes me sad, or mad, I could on for the same amount of time.
I wanted to make this blog so that I could bring together many types of woman, or men I guess if they really want to read it, so I could find out what makes them feel good about themselves.
I suppose that this is my mission statement.

Sassy, Sweet, and Chic is dedicated to finding out the many different ways a woman can make herself feel incredible! From the top of her head, to the bottom of her feet, inside out! Whether that be attaining knowledge, or learning beauty secrets and applying them. Do you feel great when you make your family smile?
I want to know, what makes your heart feel good?

So far I have covered, Barley and Birch. They are an incredible organic children's clothing line! They sell their clothes in boutique's and online stores and have a great little blog!
I know when my son, Blayze dresses so cute I feel like a million bucks! I know that I am a good mom no matter what! But, when people are always telling me that he is adorable, I mean come on! That boosts my ego just a little!

Then, I covered Orglamix. Cheri runs this fantastic little, or should I say huge- ever growing Etsy store! Make-up will be on here as much as possible, because it always makes me happy when I look beautiful! Whether it is just a little bit here or there or a full makeover. I truly am in love with it.I have a terrible obsession with make-up and dream to one day be a make-up artist. Until then I am on a mission to find makeup that I can't live without, like her! Please make sure you look her up!

So please, if you could send me some ideas for future topics! I swear that I have ADD, no offense to anyone out there, I think I really do. I have a mind that is everywhere and sometimes can't concentrate on one little thing. I have so many dreams. I still say, when I grow up I wanna be a...
And it has yet to happen, but hey I am only in my twenties... I have so much more life ahead of me!

So, here is to the future of my blog and to all of you that will join me on this wonderful adventure into the deep depths of a woman's soul.

Orglamix Winner!

 I am so very thankful to all of you who entered the Orglamix giveaway!
82 entries!!!
You girls truly are amazing!
Congratulations to


She won 3 eyeshadows from I hope all of you will still go to Cheri's shop and check out everything she has to offer!

One more thing before I go today!
There is a terrible bill out there that is targeted towards small beauty companies. 
If you would all look over it and possibly sign it, it would help companies like Orglamix!

It says that the companies would be required to list ridiculous things like water on an ingrediant list. And then they would have to list what is in that water, like trace amounts of copper, or iron... and so on. If small companies had to test every single one of their products and make an ingrediant list, it would put them out of business!
So please read over it!
Thank you so much, small businesses will thank you!!!
I do!!!!
