33 Weeks of Prenatal Bliss

Ok so that is a load of crap. The only blissful thing is knowing that in a few short weeks I will be able to officially meet my baby girl and shower her with love, hugs and kisses. The rest of this is really for the birds. This is a pregnancy rant so read at your own risk!

I want my body back! Aside from being high-risk for multiple reasons, I also have developed carpal tunnel in both wrists. I am no longer enjoying being pregnant. Boo-hoo, I know. I try not to complain, I really do. People laughed at Tamar Braxton-Herbert for her shenanigans on the show Braxton Family Values, and yes sometimes she did the most, but I feel her pain 110 percent! I just try not to be THAT vocal about it. Until now. And this will be the first and last...hopefully.

My feet are no longer my feet. They are swollen fat piggy sausages LOL. My hands hurt all the time and also resemble some sort of sausage/wiener. Everyone always says "I hope you are getting plenty of sleep because when the baby comes you won't get any." I feel like I don't even know what sleep is anymore. IF I can find a comfortable position to sleep in, it is promptly disrupted by painful hands, restless crampy legs or 5 nightly needs to go pee. When do I sleep? Usually at my desk when I'm supposed to be working and someone calls my name and then I realize I have practically drooled on my keyboard. Sometimes my eyes are open. Scary. OH! And the profuse sweating. I feel like I'm sitting in a sauna most of the time. Which is why my electric/gas bill is through the roof. 6 weeks and 5 days to go. But who's counting?!

I am going to the doctor every 2 weeks now. This provides me a lot of comfort because I can make sure my little boogie is progressing the way that she should and is doing ok. My last appointment I felt bad afterwards though. My doctor asked me if I had any questions and I didn't. I never have questions. What am I supposed to ask? I have no clue! I feel like they should be telling me what I'm supposed to ask LOL. Or at least what I need to know. I mean this is my first time creating life. Next appointment I'm gonna bombard her with all sorts of randomness that will at least make me feel like I'm getting my insurance's worth.

I keep reminding myself that it is much easier to take care of her while she is still in there and that helps a lot!

I had plans to finish the nursery last weekend so that I could try and figure out how to do this thing called REST that everybody keeps talking about. But that didn't happened. A couple of weeks ago I got her closet organized and I'm proud of how neat it looks. I just hope it stays that way!


And Sunday evening I got the glider and ottoman put together. Now I just need someone to come and feng shui for me. Any takers?


Thank you for letting me rant! I feel better already!

Happy Day folks!

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
