Oh it’s March?

I don’t know about you but I feel like it was just Christmas. My little lady is 9 months old which is super depressing & my son will be 4 in 2 months! WHAT! We’ve been pretty busy in the past weeks! We have been able to get out of the house because the weather has been super nice!! 

Oh my word, I tried a new facial moisturizer at the beginning of last month & had my first allergic reaction to anything, that I can remember in my adult life, that is! That was horrible! So I switched back to my old trusty neutrogena! LOVE it! 

We got our back splash put up & finished. Got a new kitchen table, my husband built our son a bed, we’ve been fixing up our yard, and getting ready for spring! I can’t wait, we are going to be painting the outside of our house & opening our pool!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ 

I completely forgot to post about that time it was 30 degrees out, and crazy hair day at Mother’s Day out for my son. Well as my daughter was playing in her pack n play, my son & I stepped outside to spray his hair with hair paint! It was freezing so I shut the back door. (The door knob turns on the inside no matter if it’s locked or not)<–being a house we just purchased/remodeled & haven’t lived in too long, I didn’t know that!๐Ÿ˜ณSo needless to say, the sweet man that has a tree farm next to our acreage had to come & kick in my back door!๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜‚Holy heck that was a week, there was also a cat sitting on top of my engine a couple of days later when I started my car & I about died. So glad I realized it before it was hurt! 

March has been great, so far. My grandma was cleared & is in remission! She can now resume her daily routine!!! We were all so excited about that! So, of course, she wanted to watch my little gal while brother was at MDO & I cleaned a house! Oh she was so so happy about that! 6 weeks not being able to hold or pick up her grand babies, really took a toll on her! 

We are teething, crawling, walking with assistance, and pulling up on our own. Also, starting more chores for our son! He loves it, and got to spend his money on some Lincoln Logs! I love watching them learn things, and how they change day to day! They are amazing & Im so proud to be their mother! Truly blessed!

I hope you all had a great week, and continue on into the weekend!

Sickness for everyone ๐Ÿ˜ทย 

Yippppppeeeee! The sickness has hit our house. Just when I thought we got through without the flu! My husband had the flu the weekend before last, and now myself, and our kids have some kind of viral infection. At least it isn’t the flu! I don’t know about y’all, but the state we live in, the flu has become wide spread! STAY AT HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK! My husband was confined to our family room for a week, and he carried a Lysol wipe around with him so he could do things like, go to the bathroom or get a drink. My son isn’t going to be happy that he has to stay home tomorrow from his Mother’s Day out class but I’m not going to take the chance of getting someone sick. 

Stay well and have a great week, y’all!

Oh, momma!ย 

I’m seriously on the verge of tears right now. Please do not take this the wrong way because you don’t know me and you know nothing about my life other than what I write about….

I need some ME time! I’m about to lose my mind. That time is important for a stay at home mom, because sometimes we tend to lose ourselves. My grandmother had surgery the beginning of January, which is my only babysitter. My husband has two jobs, and when he’s not working he thinks he has to be doing something! That something is like cleaning the yard, or the barn, or working on trucks. So basically I have the kids ALL the time. Which, I love dearly. Don’t get me wrong, my kids are my life. I live for them. But like I said, I need some ME time. Even if that consists of a hot bath, alone! I don’t care what it is, 10 mins or 2 hours! As I write this I tear up because I feel like I’m just complaining & putting stress on other people by telling them how I feel. I just can’t win. 

I just need a vacation! Bad. 

Have a great weekend!

Snow/Ice/Rain

Seriously, Oklahoma. Get it together! Y’all we had snow last week, some of the state of an ice storm this week & today is raining! I need to it be like 72 degrees outside! I hate being cold. And just so happens my birthday is smack dab in the middle of winter! In two weeks, I’ll be 29. Woot!๐Ÿค”

Anywho, update on my grandma. Surgery went well & she is doing as expected! She is still in ICU which is where I’d prefer her to be because she gets more care there than she would on another floor! ICU nurses are assigned 2 patients a shift & they have to report on those patients every hour! Even though she is annoyed with being bothered, it’s good for her. She’s 72, and was cut from her breast bone to belly button. I mean, come on, that’s serious. Her blood sugars go up & down, which needs to be under control before she can go home. So we will see. She will be out of commission for 4-6 weeks. So she still have a long recovery road. So please continue to pray for her!

My husband has been the only one in this house that hasn’t caught the cold. So I have yet to be back to the hospital since the day she had her surgery. But of course, we have facetimed her a million times. Not only is she my best friend & my go to person, she is that to my children. They LOVE her so much. My son has been asking to go to grandma & grandpas, and is so sad when I tell him we can’t go. But that will only be for a few more weeks! I just so miss talking to her everyday or going to her house. But I am thanking the good Lord, that I will be able to continue to do those things with her. He had watched over her, and continues too.โค

I’m going to go enjoy this lazy rainy day with my family. I hope you all had a great weekend! Until the next time!๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Best time of the yearโค๏ธ

Hey guys! 

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!! Seriously love this time of year. All the food, and family is such a blessing! Thursday was such a great day. My mom, sister & I went shopping Thursday night after our tummies were full, and we were out until about 11 pm. We left at 5 pm so it wasn’t that bad. We went to many stores & got a lot of our Christmas shopping finished. Then Friday morning, we got up at 6 & made it to At Home by 8 for their big sale. To my surprise they weren’t very busy, so that was nice! Then we worked on our new house the rest of the day Friday & all day Saturday. We are hoping to be in there & have it finished before Christmas!๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ

Today, we went to church & the service was amazing! Had lunch afterwards, and my husband went to help my dad pour some concrete before the rain came! The kids & I have been resting all day. Such a wonderful weekend! 

We had an experience today, that I never hoped we would have. We went to get our son out of Sunday school after church, and he through a huge fit & hid underneath the table. Those poor teachers. She was like you can come in & get him if you want. In his defense, he isn’t really around children his age a whole lot. If he is, it’s his two cousins. We are thinking of putting him in a Mother’s Day out program. He absolutely loves to be around children & is the sweetest. He just didn’t want to leave today. I think it will benefit him, and help us decide if he is ready for school this coming August! 

Anyways, I hope you all had a great weekend & an amazing holiday!!

Positivity โค๏ธ

So where do I begin. As you may have seen in my Cancer sucks post, my grandmother has stomach cancer. She will live with it the rest of her life, unless it’s is now small enough to remove by surgery. She takes chemo shots every month, and as you can imagine, those are extremely expensive. Well, we have just found out that my mom, had a lump on her chest. She went to the doctor this week to have a biopsy, and should hear sometime next week what the results are. If cancerous, she will have to see a dermatologist & then go from there. Cancer has affected our family before, unfortunately. The first would be our adopted family, The Grays. My grandmother kept both of their kids from newborn until it was time to start school. So they are basically family. We love them as family. Both parents are full time school teachers & a big part of the town I grew up in. Mrs. Gray was diagnosed with breast cancer, and did amazing. She is now a survivor! It’s been atleast 4 years, I believe. Praise the good Lord! Then my grandmother, and now a chance of my mother. We are staying positive about it because we know it’s possible it’s not cancerous. But that doesn’t mean the chances of it being aren’t super real. We’ve learned to be positive. And we will continue to be regardless of what’s thrown our way. The Lord has this. We just need to trust him. He has proven miracles happen. With Mrs. Gray, beating cancer. My grandma was told her tumor would probably never shrink, but it has, tremendously. So we will pray & wait. Then move on in the way we need to come whatever. If you believe in the power of prayer, please say a prayer for us. If you don’t, positive vibes are appreciated!! ๐Ÿ˜˜

That was heavy. So now on to a not so heavy subject, y’all I did my makeup this morning. My hair, well, it’s still in a ponytail. But I seriously need it cut! I got up early, determined to do my makeup atleast before my children woke up. I accomplished that, pretty much. Half way through my 3 year old woke up. That’s okay cause he pretty much entertains himself. He just wanted to use the potty & have some milk!๐Ÿณ๐Ÿž๐Ÿถ

Hoping you are having a great day! Until next time!

Thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญย 

So I’m laying here in bed, its 11:15 pm where I live. I know I need to go to sleep because my almost 6 month old will be up to eat at 6:30 & then I’ll be up for the day after she goes back to sleep. Anyways, I was just laying here thinking, I want to do my hair & makeup tomorrow. Not that I don’t do alittle something every day. I usually put concealer on to cover my dark circles & put my hair in a mom bun. Oh, sorry, if you didn’t know, I’m a stay at home mom. So this is my day to day look usually. Only on occasions do I really get to do a full face of makeup & fix my hair. Well because frankly, my children & their needs are way more important. BUT sometimes I want to feel pretty. I know as Moms, we can lose our identity every now & again. So we have to take some time for ourselves. If that means, a pedicure, going to target without kids, or just a simple bath. But sometimes it just means, doing our hair & makeup just to make ourselves feel better! Under our mom gear, we are beautiful humans. We just need to remind ourselves of that!!!! It’s different hearing it from your spouse or family, YOU have to believe it too! So go love ya self, girl!!!! 

Im gonna doll myself up tomorrow (hopefully๐Ÿ˜‚) 

I’m ridiculous tired, so this may not make any sense whatsoever.Nighty night, y’all.
