I cut my hair!!! 

Sooooo….I cut my hair. I cut it all off. Some days I can’t believe it, most days I’m too busy doing mom stuff to even notice :). 

Why did I cut my hair? I was stressed, honestly. Needed something completely different and new. I didn’t know what other change I could make to myself to be even more honest. I always planned to cut my hair short when I was around 25 anyways and here I am…25 and it’s cut! I couldn’t deal with it anymore and my baby was tugging at it ALL of the time anyways and when she wasn’t, I was. Tragic! 

I’m glad I did it. It was the dead weight that I needed lifted since having my daughter. I do have days where I miss my hair but oh well change is inevitable and at the time I needed this BAD. 
P.s. This was a short post, huh? Lol. Good evening good people. 

2016 so far!

Hi everyone!!!! This year has been crazy hectic and exciting already! So far….I have…

  • Started grad school back up and I’m working towards my MBA in project management 
  • Joined a book club ( an actual real book club that reads a book on a monthly basis and gets together to discuss it!!) I’m so excited about that! 
  • Got my ticket to see Beyonce in May!!! Yay yay yay!!! 
  • Whacked all of my hair off!!!! (Post coming soon with all of the details)   
  • Embraced some things about myself…the fact that I’m a mother now, I’m kind of an introvert and that I just like what I like dammit & people can hate it or love it who cares! 
  • I LOVE Shonda Rhimes and I LOVE Grey’s Anatomy! I love everything dealing with Shondaland, period. 

I took a vow to start doing more of what I wanted to do and make decsisons for myself and no one else in regards to my life. And I absolutely love it. If we all just embrace who we really are, where we really are in life and stick to being true to ourselves, I promise you’ll be so much happier. So much happier. 

Happy Monday everyone 🙂

Most essential items as FTP’s!!! 

Hey everyone!!!! If you’ve been keeping up, then you know that my boyfriend and I are FTP’s (First Time Parents) and as you know the struggle has gotten real when it comes to parenting. At first, our baby was so quiet and barely moved now we have to make her take a nap because she’s so on the GO!!! Mind you, she’s only a few days shy of being 7 months old! I can’t believe it, but I digress. 

I’m bringing you our perspectives as first timers what our most essential items are for our baby girl. Of course my boyfriend’s answer was short and to the point saying for him the most essential thing to him is having her pacifier. Wait, what?! That’s it?! A pacifier. Yeah, okay gotcha buddy. 

Me, on the other hand, I have about three essential items and they include:

  • Diaper bag (which consists of basically everything)
  • Easy feed on-the-go spoon
  • Vaseline 

Since having her and becoming used to being a mom I have downgraded our diaper bag to a very inexpensive $4 (caught on sale) bag that fits everything we need without us being weighed down. Now on to my favorite item… 

This thing right here…..I’m so glad Munchkin invented this! It’s heaven sent seriously! 

  
She loves it! I love it! We all love it! It’s no mess and it’s especially great when your baby doesn’t like to wait for you to dip the spoon in the bowl and bring it to their mouth. Only  $6 at Walmart, go get it now! 
The last thing that I’ve been carrying around since before she was born is Vaseline. I use it for EVERYTHING. It’s my go to for everything, and I use organic coconut oil  but mainly on her hair, but this does great for our baby’s eczema prone skin. Especially during the winter time. It’s hypoallergenic and has a very light baby scent so baby can still have that baby fresh smell without all of the parabens, etc. that are used in other brands. $5-$6 at any drugstore, Walmart, and Target. It’s old school and always does the trick.
