I'm a Working Mommy!

Everyday I'm hustling! Well, I'm back to work. I've been back a total of 8 days and I must admit it sucks! But, this is what I must do to ensure that Trinity and I have all we need to survive this cruel world! I miss her so much! I swear she knows that I'm leaving her in the mornings. Luckily I didn't have to put her in daycare. My loving stepmother is caring for her while I'm at work. It really couldn't have worked out better. When I drop her off, she stares at me until I walk out the door (more like she gives me the stank eye). This breaks my heart! I used to say that there was no way I could ever be a stay at home mom. I'm changing my tune. I totally could do it! But seeing how bills won't pay themselves... Everyone at work has been really nice and not overhauling me with work. For that I am grateful because some of my coworkers have so much going on I feel bad for them. I'm still playing catch up and trying to reconnect my brain to the

Chocolate Makes the World Go Round

Last month, my friend Tiffany had a mild obsession with cupcakes from this local bakery. It didn't help that for the month of August they had a special... $1 cupcakes. I hate to think how many she ate! This in turn caused a few of us to gain a mild obsession. And led to Tamiko ordering their cupcakes for her birthday, which was Labor Day weekend. A favorite of mine is their Sour Cream Cupcake. It is so moist and yummy! They also have a really good Red Velvet...which I found out after demolishing it that they use coconut (and I'm allergic). My first time seeing coconut used in Red Velvet. But it is good. I just can't deal with the itchy mouth and throat afterwards! Not being one to believe in spending money on something I can make myself, I decided that for my mom's birthday that I would attempt to make a Sour Cream Cupcake of my own. Of the Chocolate variety...this is Chocolate Kisses after all! :-) I searched until I found one that didn't have too many craz

Baby Magic is 8 Weeks Old!

Baby Magic turned 8 weeks this past Sunday. I know, this kid has too many nicknames! I'm trying to figure out what works. I generally find myself calling her "Booga" which I'm sure she will not appreciate later LOL. Anyway, I digress. When I called to make her 2 month appointment I was informed that she would be getting immunized (unless I didn't want her to). I'm not that mom though. She is getting her shots! If you don't believe in immunizations, your prerogative. Parents do what they feel is right for their family. Getting her immunized is right for us. I get her to the doctor's office and she gets weighed. She now weighs 8 pounds 15 ounces! YAY! I'm proud of my little stinker, and proud of myself. She has doubled her birth weight! And I love her new doctor! I had to switch because the last one was a little insensitive and kept trying to convince me that I didn't know when I got pregnant...yada yada. So I had to switch to doctor that wou

Look At God!

Happy Sunday y'all! I'm a person of strong faith. Sometimes I am tested and sometimes I fail. All I can do is pray for God's continued guidance and continuously seek Him, in good and bad times. I often struggle with how much I should share with you guys...a lot of times I will write a post and then edit it before the email is sent...still fully aware that some of you may read it before I make edits. :) Today little Boogie and I went to church for the first time. I usually never make it to Sunday School. Today was no exception, they just ran a little over the allotted time. I'm glad I caught the end. The message was "Sometimes you have to give up your right to be right to be seen as righteous in the eyes of God." During my pregnancy I struggled with anger. I was mad at everyone. This kept everyone at a distance and now I realize that the help that I didn't get was my fault. It wasn't their fault that I was mad. I was mostly mad at myself. But du
