A Little Bit of Everything

“The day I became yours, you became mine.” That Carters commercial makes me tear up every single time.

Can I just say Shonda Rhimes had all of the Scandal fans in a tizzy last night. She is some kind of evil genius.

We are moving next weekend and I have only packed 5 boxes. Too bad this isn’t a PCS move so that we could just supervise the packing instead of doing it ourselves.

I miss the East Coast. El Paso is ok, but ummm yeah this is not the place for me or my family. The city is not diverse at all. I was able to visit Dallas over the summer…. I really enjoyed my time in the city. If we lived there I’m sure I wouldn’t be so ready to vacate Texas.

One of my best girlfriends is having a baby. She’s due in February. I hate that I live so far away, but I am hoping to get home to see her and the baby by early spring.

I just read a hilarious memoir. I was laughing out loud in bed and my husband kept giving me the stink eye. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson do yourself a favor and read it ASAP…. well that is if you aren’t easily offended because if you are just forget I mentioned it. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was also a great read but the ending SUCKED!!! I mean at the end I was like are you FREAKING KIDDING?!  The rest of the book was so good I can forgive her for the ending.

My brother might be moving to Germany for a few years. Definitely gotta visit!

Just got 2 follow requests from natural hair bloggers on Twitter. I hope they aren’t trying to recruit me!!!! The ONLY way I’d be natural is if I could rock my hair like CrystalBoo(she is basically rocking an Amber Rose) . I think I have a face for short hair but I don’t have the head to wear my hair like her so no haps! Oh yeah and with my pointy ears that wouldn’t be the move.

I finally got my phone that I whined about in my last post…. it is AWESOME! AT&T finally released the new Android OS this week so it is running Jellybean and I must say it made me love my G S III that much more.

I want some really good Chinese food. I have not been able to find a place here that can top the chicken egg rolls at Red Bowl Asian Bistro in Columbia, SC… those things were delicious!

 

 

 

They got me working working day & night

I’d all but forgotten the rigorous schedule of caring for a newborn; however my son has kindly put me through a crash course to quickly familiarize me of my duties. I don’t mind caring for him as he is a pretty mild-mannered all around sweet baby, BUT mothering a new baby is like a full-time job with 40 hours of overtime on the side. To add to my responsibilities I am also breastfeeding which keeps me attached to him literally all day long. I’m tired & sleepy hoping and praying that we’ll soon find our rhythm and get on some type of schedule that involves me sleeping for more than 2 or 3 hours at a time.

Stir Crazy

It’s been 12 days since I gave birth. I left the hospital with instructions not to lift anything heavier than my son and no driving for 4 weeks! I’ve been at the mercy of my husband to pick up anything that I need which in theory is a dream, but I feel like I am going a little crazy after being confined to the house for so long. I’ve left the apartment twice and both times were to take my son to the pediatrician.

Today while trying to catch a quick snooze with my baby I opened my eyes to find my daughter standing over me beside the couch looking quite wild eyed… it was enough to wake me up that’s for sure.

While being at home with my newborn has been nice and I am definitely not complaining I need to go somewhere anywhere even if it is just to the grocery store! Since I am stuck in the house I have been craving foods that of course I don’t have in my cabinets, wanting to go to Target and longing to just be outside BUT I am trying to do the right thing. My mother being from the old school believes that I shouldn’t be out and about until at least a month after the birth because according to her my body is still “open” and the old wives tales strictly state I shouldn’t go out before that time but after 2 weeks I think I am willing to take that chance!!!
