All in Lifestyle

And there it was the moment when he laid there watching me intently as I removed all of the gunk from the barrel of the vacuum cleaner brush, wide eyed and bushy tailed as though it was the newest, coolest cartoon on the block.  It was in that moment that I realized this kid, this little miracle of ours was going to be something big.  

There are many things that J has of mine, my temper, my impatience, my knack for the dramatics, but what he has of his daddy's is the willingness to learn, the patience to figure it out, and the ability to shoot you a smile and flirtatious look that will have you weak in the knees. 

You never realize how much being close to the ocean can make you feel relaxed regardless of if you never actually get in the water.  

I normally take day trips to Galveston to meet a couple of girlfriends up for business talks and food.  It is nice to be close to the water, enjoy some alone time and get a bit inspired at times.

I just needed some time.

After everything that was going on in my personal life, I definitely needed a break from everything. I wish I could’ve fit in a vacation from life but with a family that is not something that you can do.

Instead, I took a step back from my blog and a little bit of social media and it helped tremendously. I also took a refreshing instagram class from my dear friend Stacy Anderson that helped me feel much better about the path about this blog.

Dealing with Loss

On June 10th, we lost my grandmother and while she lived a long life passing at the ripe age of 81, no loss is ever easy.  The last couple months for her were filled with pain and surgeries, until she was brought home where she could get some comfort from pain medication, and family & friends. 

I am not the greatest at loss, I am awkward to say the least with affection as it is growing up in a family who rarely says I love you, or hugs one another.  

Mama Moments

These past couple of weeks I have had less time to play with make up or get dressed up and take pictures of myself, so this weeks blog post have been more of the emotional side of things. 

I am still trying to figure out what works for me with this blog and what doesn't.  If you have opinions on the matter I am open to hear about them. 

If you read my post earlier this week you are well aware that Mother's Day didn't go as smoothly as one would hope.  You can read more of it here.

Mother's Day was great!
My attitude on the other hand not so much.

If you saw my instagram post on this topic then you know exactly what I am talking about. 

So my Mother's Day fail started on Saturday evening and apparently I was on a roll and wanted it to last the entire weekend, E came home with my gift and I was like nope, I don't want that.  Then to top it off I decided to have an attitude that E decided to leave the house to do a little work for his regular job on Sunday morning.  Now this I am still a little upset about and feel as though my feelings are in the right to an extent, but I am going to put my pride and attitude aside and be thankful and grateful that our finances and lives are being handled.
