Morning Sickness Is A Bitch


, , ,

I got hit with morning sickness on the daily.  I’m very confident that I also got a combo of morning sickness and the flu because I was down and out so much that I ended up using all of my PTO.

Something that most people talk about happening AFTER you have your baby is that you can expect to pee your pants whenever you cough, sneeze, laugh, or jump.  What these people DON’T tell you is that this starts during pregnancy.  I was peeing my pants almost every time I threw up.  However I learned a quick trick that came in real handy for me.

Food Should Be Fuel Right


, , , , ,

I heard a speaker talk about how she has her moments when she allows herself to binge and indulge.  She said, “I’m a human being, being human.” (Thank you Tulin Emre for that little nugget).  A lot of what she said today was amazing and powerful and all the tears weren’t just because of the pregnancy hormones.

A couple of days ago, I was watching some Instagram stories from another amazing speaker that I admire and was catching them right before they disappeared.  I’m talking about the fact that the time of when she posted them said “1d” and were almost gone!  She was talking about a common phrase that she hears daily and what she said really got me thinking about Continue reading

When I Found Out I Was Pregnant


, ,

I remember it clear as day.

November 7th, we were sitting on the couch that evening watching something on tv when we got an email from one of the officiants in the county saying that she had availability to marry us on Saturday, November 11th.  We were so excited!  We got the date that we wanted.  We both have terrible memories so we figured a date like 11/11 would be easy to remember.  Plus it’s Veteran’s Day…I’m a vet and he’s active duty…seems so perfect right!

2018 Goals and Dreams


, , , ,

This year is looking to be amazing.  I know.  It’s only 4 days into the new year but I have a feeling!  I’ve got a big announcement coming soon and big goals.  I know I’ve been saying it the last couple of years but I realized that while setting big hairy scary goal is great but I freak out and drop the ball every damn time.  Setting a specific time frame for that specific big goal kills my drive every time.

So I’ve taken a page from someone that I greatly admire and I’m going to  Continue reading

Coming Back



I love to write.  I really do.  I was told once to stay away from doing it professionally so I never really tried.  I’ve kept blogs over the years using it like an online diary mostly.  I used it as a place to vent about roommates back in the day…honestly can’t remember what it was call but it’s no longer available.  I have a blog on Blogspot that I haven’t written on in a few years because I left them to come here.

Why am I telling you this?  I don’t know who is actually reading this anyway BUT I really want to start writing more.  I want to start sharing more.  I want to start writing multiple times a week but I don’t know what to share.  What do you, my readers, want me to share?

Do you want recipes?  Do you want meal prepping tips?  Do you want “How To” posts?  Do you want linked videos as well as images and/or text?  Please help me out because right now I’m at a loss.
