My 1st Mother's Day

Hi folks!

I hope all of the mothers had a peaceful mother's day! My day was good overall. I wish I could say that I was surrounded by nothingness all day but such was not the case. The day was filled with hot flashes, attitudes and good food (that arrived hours later than it should have). Next year I think I will just make a reservation. It may only be for me and Trinity but that will certainly save my sanity.

I spent a great deal of the day with my mom and we had a good time laughing, shopping and wishing my sisters would hurry up with the food. Yes I have to mention that again lol.

I realized a lot of things on Mother's Day. Those that love you will show it, even if it is in a very simplistic way. I woke up, drank coffee out of a mug Trinity "ordered" for me, smelled a dozen beautiful roses, read a few heartfelt cards, attended church with my family, visited with my grandmother, received and made a lot of texts...and I hugged my little sugar dumpling until she wouldn't let me hug her anymore.

This day, although some say it's like any other day, is a special day and should be treated as such. A day of recognition for moms who sometimes don't get any recognition. A day to say "You're appreciated." A day that recognizes all that mothers do to keep a family running. So from the very bottom of my soul, I say thank you to every single person that thought of me on that day. It was a little emotional for me. Who am I kidding, it was a lot emotional for me and I appreciated the cards, the gifts, Facebook messages and comments and the "you're doing a great job" encouragement. Motherhood is hard. It should be recognized daily, but often isn't.

I salute you mothers!

Smile! We love you!

The only picture she would let me get a good shot of in her pretty dress.

Crying because we were hungry!
Wishing you the best!

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 c

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 W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
