Ready to Rock 39!

I had a birthday yesterday!  The big 3-9!  One more year until the big 4-0!  My mom asked me yesterday, “So, how does it feel to be 39?”  I said, “The same as it felt to be 38!”  I spent the day with this cutie:   Yesterday was a very surreal day for me.  My […]

Beginning 21 Day Fix

I gave you a little teaser yesterday about the program I chose.  Clean eating with portion control and exercise.  Many of you guessed I was doing the 21 Day Fix.  Smart cookies!  Wait…no more cookies!  NO COOKIES!  Ok…moving past cookies… For the record, I DID NOT eat any cookies today!  Yeah me!  If you had […]

What’s up Buttercup?

Well, I totally left you hanging in my last post and then…despite my promises, was never to return… Until NOW! Summer is here.  Today was my last day of work and tomorrow starts summer for me.  Before I talk about my summer plans, let me recap the almost 3 months that I have been gone. […]

Where to Begin?

Happy New Year!  I know it’s March but I haven’t “spoken” to you since last year.  WoW!  I won’t apologize.  I can’t.  There is no possible way I could blog and figure out life with a newborn.  I mean, I guess there was a way but it wasn’t happening for me. In fact, I considered […]

Sometimes He Whispers

Life is crazy.  Life is busy.  Life can get a bit overwhelming at times. I used to be somewhat of a “workaholic.”  I did it out of both necessity and the love for my jobs.  During the school year, I would easily work 10 to 12 hour days.  I worked from 7:00-3:00 and then would […]

Wake Up Call

I went back to the doctor on Monday.  Of course, my blood pressure had been great for the whole week before going.  I get there, and it is high. Lovely.  You gotta love white coat syndrome. Just the thought of having to go back to the hospital if it is high, makes it high. ANYWHO…The […]

Part Two: One Day at a Time Takes on a Whole New Meaning

If you missed my post on Friday, you will want to read that one before this one or it might not make a whole lot of sense: Read it HERE. So, after a very eventful day on Monday, we were moved to a “more comfortable” room around 1:00 a.m.  More comfortable meaning, “It had a […]
