Thursday Confessions

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Happy Thursday Everyone! I know that I was MIA this week.. Sorry! It has been so super busy lately. I am glad that I finally have time to breath and can catch you guys up on what has been going on lately. 

* My dad had a hip replacement yesterday and he is doing fantastic. I am so glad that he is doing well and already out of bed moving around. Now to get him to take it easy is another story. 
* I am so glad that it is a three day weekend this week and next week. #lovemystatejob

* I am addicted to Matilda Jane clothes for my child. They had a 50-70% off sale this week and I may have ordered 13 outfits... (insert emoji covering eyes) I can't help it the clothes are adorable and you could beat those prices. FYI I need some work clothes but I am to bust buying clothes for my child that I don't have the effort to look for me clothes.

* I am trying to decide if I want to cut my hair off or not... what do you guys think? I love when my hair is a shorter stack but that hair style went out like 5 years ago....

* I am in love with Southern Charm but still am not sure if I like the new one? I mean can you really replace Charleston?!?

* I had to cancel my girly doctor's appointment this week due to a scheduling conflict but I may have done the happy dance. Listen I love love my doctor but something about that appointment makes me have the bubbleguts.... I act like she didn't try to pull a baby out of it four months ago but still....

Anyway see you tomorrow for my Friday Favs.

Happy Friday Eve. I am so ready for the weekend. I am apart of a ladies ball group and this weekend is our spring party. Which means Charlee is going to grandma's for the night and mama is planning to be in bed at 8pm and sleep until 9am. Now if that actually happens who knows but it sounds like a good plan. Here are my weekly confessions.....

* My child slept from 9:30p to 5:45a this morning. Can I get a amen! I woke up a few times to make sure that she was still breathing but she did much better now that she can roll belly to back and back to belly she is able to move and get comfortable.

* I want another tattoo so bad it's killing me. I have no idea what I want  but I can just tell you that I want another one.

* Work is getting so crazy right now and I kinda wish that it would just chill. One of the older paralegals will be retiring soon so I know that I won't be able to relax but a girl can dream.

* My husband spent 300 dollars on a cooler this week (insert eye  roll) 300 on a cooler. That is ridiculous.

* I went to Target to get a bathing suit and almost threw up when I saw my postpartum body in the mirror. Not summer ready at all.

* I decided to back off on feeding Charlee solids. I feel like we just need her to get more calories and formula gives her more than solids do....

* I am addicted to Southern Charm tv show on Bravo and I am not quite sure why.... I think it makes me feel good about my life and how together I think that I have it.

Have a great Thursday!

Dear Baby on my First Mother's Day

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Dearest Charlee,

There’s so many feelings to be felt, all beautiful feelings. This day is different than any other days celebrating me: it’s celebrating you AND me. It’s celebrating the fact that I am your mama and you are my baby. That is something no one can ever take away from us. One day I won't be here but I will forever be your mama. It’s celebrating the best thing I’ve ever been called:  a mama.

Last year on Mother’s Day, you were still in my belly. We had just found out that we were pregnant. While we celebrated that day, this day this year is different. While I held you in my belly last year, this year, I held you in my arms. I’ve never held anything better. Nothing is ever made me as happy as seeing your sweet gummy smiles and belly laughs.

On this day, I  definitely shed some tears, shared a few laughs, and smiled the biggest of smiles. On this day, all of those tears, laughs, and smiles will be shared with you. My baby, my sweet precious little girl.

This day is supposed to be a day to celebrate me, but I know that it is a day that I will celebrate you, a day that I will be celebrating the greatest blessing: being your mama.

I will hold you close to me, and kiss your sweet face. Because, my love, you are the reason for today and every other day. I watch the clock while at work waiting for 5 to be able to see your face and find out how your day went. 

And I couldn’t be happier.

I love you, my sweet baby.

love, mama.

Happy Friday. I am so ready for the weekend you guys have no idea. The stomach virus hit our house over the weekend and slowly passed through all three of us. It was completely miserable and I am glad that we are on the up and up. 


My First Mother's Day. Last year we announced to family that I was pregnant on Mother's Day weekend but it wasn't real like it is now. Our sweet girl is here and I feel like I celebrate being her mommy. To me mother's day is more about celebrating her than it is me. That may be the infertility and how long it took us to conceive her talking but I am more thankful that I can be called a mother than I am worried about celebrating what I do everyday. 


I had a skin biopsy done a few weeks ago and I can finally announce that I am cancer free. I was super nervous since my mother and her mother have both had skin cancer. They both had to have it removed. I am hoping that I can stay cancer free.


My child slept EIGHT whole hours last night. Can we say thank you jesus!!! Maybe there is a light at the end of the sleepless night tunnel!!

Speaking of Charlee girlfriend has her four month shots today with her new ped and I am a nervous wreck. I am excited about the new doctor but hate that we have to meet her on a shots day.

This smoothie recipe is now my favorite go toooo. So yum!
Have a great weekend.

Happy Friday. I am so glad that another week has passed and a new weekend is ahead. 


Happy Cinco De Mayo... We will celebrating at a local restaurant. They have a party in the parking lot with food and drink specials. It is a lot of fun and we won't be far from home so we can still get home in time for bath and bed time. 


Yall I need this bathing suit in my life like right now!! How adorable is it. 

Hello Brown hair. I am so glad to have my brown hair back and have no grey.... Guys I have no idea what happen but I went from a few grey hair hairs to holy hell. 

Four. Speaking of hair I am going to get mine cut today. I am thinking about getting it cut shoulder length to be able to keep up with it more. I wanted to grow it out for the ball in September but the more I thought about it that is just one day this is everyday.

Yes please!! This recipe!

Thursday Confessions

Here are my weekly confessions and though.....

* I went a little over board this week for Teacher's Appreciation Week since they take care of my sweet CharBear everyday. Plus if a mom buys them goodies they may love on that child more.... Or at least that is what I would do...#fatkid

* I am dying my hair tonight because my grey is out of control. Hello brown hair! I am also getting it cute tomorrow and I have no idea what I want to do with it. It needs to be more manageable but I don't know how to do that without getting it cut shorter. 

* I felt like a my child hated me this morning. She cried the whole way to daycare and I handed her to her teacher and nothing but smiles. #wtfkid

* We are going to a crawfish boil this weekend and I am so pumped. Not because the crawfish but because I bought the cutest smocked outfit with a crawfish on it for Charlee to wear. I swear my kid dresses better than I do. Speaking of I need second job to support my Matilda Jane wants. I thought about selling it but the start up so expensive.

* I had a skin cancer check this morning and they did a biopsy on a spot so now I am kinda freckin out. 

* I am so stressed about finding a balance with my job, the baby, my life, and my husband. Things already get rocky when you bring a baby home but life takes over and you get so busy and TIRED! If anyone had tips please tell me!

* Love bug will be four months next week and that makes me sad and glad all at the same time. I can't wait to be able to give her cereal and reach all the new milestones but she is a baby still.

* I am obsessed with James Arthur's music. That's it.
