Tick Tock: A Discussion about Marriage and Motherhood

After reading former Bad Girl Tanisha Thomas' Instagram post I couldn't help but think about how many of my close friends could relate. In our early 30s it seems like everyone has More »

Tick Tock: A Discussion about Marriage and Motherhood

IMG_0933.JPG
After reading former Bad Girl Tanisha Thomas' Instagram post I couldn't help but think about how many of my close friends could relate. In our early 30s it seems like everyone has been hit with the baby bug. That time you hear about on TV when a woman's biological clock starts ticking and she's suddenly inundated with maternal feelings and begins to long for a family. In this day and age despite what Teen Mom may be showing these past few weeks with their alums pregnant for a second time, women ...

Oops I Did It Again!

IMG_0919-0.JPG
Don't judge me...here goes. I'm pregnant....again. I'm not completely sure how this happened. Well I mean I know how it happened but I guess I just didn't expect it to happen so soon. I had a really long cycle in June. Like really long! Freakishly, how are you still alive long. 18 days long to be exact, then none in July, then something in August then slight spotting in September. But I knew. I mean I'd done this before just over a year ago. I recognized the intense sense of smell, and ...

Where I’ve Been Where I’m Going: Update

im-back
So, where I've been... I've been seriously neglecting this site. Not for lack of caring but just because adjusting to this world of working mom has proven to be quite challenging. My Superwoman cape that I once wore proudly as I sometimes leapt from full-time classes to full-time work to full-time girlfriend, has long been crumpled in a corner and covered with dust. Nowadays I'm exhausted, mentally and physically from just trying to work all day and produce results (I'm a sales manager) and somehow ...

Finding Mommy Balance

Witsend2
I get it, after all the years of being on the outside looking in and wondering what was the big deal when I would hear mothers complain of their busy schedules and tasks to complete, I get it! I'm always on the move, always going. My feet always hurt, my back aches and I'm dizzied with the day to day. As a first time mom to an almost 1yr old, I'm happy about how I've navigated through those new mom moments (with the help of friends) and I'm even happier that through that navigation I've learned ...

10 Life Lessons From My Newborn Son

LifeLessons
"Becoming a mother changed my life..."  It's a phrase you hear often but never quite pay attention to or understand until it happens to you. There is no way to completely express the profound way in which creating, carrying and birthing life changes you. It's a defining moment for many women. Your perspective on the world changes, your life truly changes. Things that were important aren't, things that weren't suddenly are. You find that this complicated existence you lived up until this point is ...

Happy New Year! (kind of) Blog Goals for 2014

Happy New Year! Hey better late than never right? I've seriously been MIA! Though I have been making my rounds on some of my social networks like Twitter and Instagram I have neglected the very most important aspect of blogging...my blog! I have realized in my short time blogging just how intense of a process it is. Creating meaningful content takes time, time that as a new mom with a full-time retail job, I have found is hard to come by. The ever elusive balancing act that all mothers are constantly ...

You Probably Don’t Suck as a Mom

Suckasmom
Her fitted crop top shows off her perky breast and flat and toned smooth stomach. Her skin seems to glow in the sun as she carelessly slings her Gucci diaper bag across her shoulder and carefully clicks the break on her $1000 Orbit stroller. She begins to rummage through her bag and produces her perfectly color coordinated and labeled homemade purée for her baby who looks about 4 months, the same age as your baby. You hate HER. And you should she's a bitch, she's super mom and she's probably also ...

Kim K Copied My Shower: A Baby Shower Planning Guide of Sorts

Baby Shower
Ok, you got me. Kim Kardashian and I are not BFFs and though I hold myself in a high regard I'm pretty sure she's never heard of me. After I wrote about the 3 types of friends you have during pregnancy, I read a hilarious article in the Huffington Post that detailed some annoying people you meet while pregnant, one of which happened to be the celebrity that was pregnant the same time as you. Kim was one of those celebs for me. I, like many people followed along with the stories of Kim's pregnancy ...
