The Baby Is Here!

Finally my bundle of joy has arrived! She made her debut on November 3rd, 2011 at 6:50am. Talk about an easy labor and delivery. I started having contractions around 2am and got to the hospital at 2:30am. Within 4 hours it was time to start pushing. After less than 30 minutes of pushing, Keira decided to come meet us. I am very blessed for the quick and fairly easy labor. I decided to go the no medicine route so I could really get a feel for what giving birth felt like. I am really lucky that I only had major contractions for a few hours because yes, it is true, contractions hurt! I have never felt anything remotely as painful as contractions before. With that said, she was well worth … Read entire article »

Countdown To Motherhood

So let the countdown begin! I only have 33 more days left until my due date!!!! I am inpatient, nervous and above all excited! The nursery is all complete and the only thing left to do is pack my hospital bag and install the car seat. To keep myself occupied I plan to reorganize closets and drawers in my house. On top of that, I hope to get most of my Christmas shopping completed and all the holiday plans sorted out. Staying busy will help Keira’s arrival seem closer, hopefully! Being a first time mom, I am not sure what to expect. I have done a ton of reading to help prepare myself, but reading and doing are two different things. I think the hands on experience will be … Read entire article »

Finding out the sex of our baby!

So, as you might have gathered from previous post, I am pregnant! My husband and I could not be happier. We feel truly blessed. There are a few days in your life that you will never forget (hopefully they are all positive). Important days to me are your wedding day, the day you find out you are pregnant, the day you find out the sex of your child and the day your baby is born. One of my big, unforgettable days is soon approaching, and I can’t wait! Next Tuesday, June 14th, we will be finding out the sex of our first child. Everyone seems to think that the baby is a boy, I have a feeling it’s a boy also. We will be gracious no matter what the sex … Read entire article »

Drunk Driving

Today I found out that one of my good friend’s mother was taken by a drunk driver. He had to watch his own mother die and there was nothing he could do. She was simply taken away from her family due to someone’s irresponsible actions. This sickens me!!! How many people need to die in order for people to stop driving drunk? If you know of anyone that drinks drunk, please take the time to stop them. It could save a life. In the mean time, my friend is left without a mother. He will never again be able to talk to her, never again be able to hug her, never again be able to look into her eyes and see that unconditional love. Please please please do not drive … Read entire article »

Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez

It all went down on Monday nights season finale of the Bachelorette as Ali picks the very handsome Roberto!!! If you watched the show from the very beginning you could see that they had sparks immediately (hints the reason he got the first impression rose)! I have always watched the Bachelor/Bachelorette, but for some reason this season really intrigued me. I think that it is partially because Ali seems so down to earth, and not out for the fame. I could be wrong, but hopefully they stay true to each other and go against the odds and makes this relationship work. Ali admits that she reads the gossip in the media about her (them). I just hope that she takes all the negative comments with a grain of salt and … Read entire article »

Setting Goals

Setting goals are good - are great, but what’s even better is planning out the steps to achieve the goals. Sure, anyone can write out a few goals, a few dreams. The work comes in thinking about how you are going to accomplish the goals. Write out step by step how you can make those goals become reality. Once you have the baby steps in place, just follow them and if you made good, achievable steps, then you should achieve your goals. You can do anything once you put your mind to it! Start planning out your goals today! … Read entire article »

Why not?

My fiance and I have been thinking…. why don’t we travel the US while we are still young and have nothing holding us back? Why stay in one place and get old, why not move around to awesome places and enjoy life? If you have the opportunity to do this, then take it! Our plan to to travel all over the US (again!) and stay in a cool city (mainly beach towns like Miami and San Diego) for about a year, then move on to the next city. In a few years (like 4 or 5) we can then settle down closer to family and start our family together. Now is the time for us to do it… so I think we should! Agree??? … Read entire article »

My Life is Changing!

Well today is the start of a new career for me! I started aesthetic and massage therapy school today, and I could not be more happy! After I graduated from college with a communication studies degree in December 2006, I moved to California to work at a software company. After almost 2 years of working in the corporate world, my fiancé and I decided to move to Alexandria, VA. We moved for my fiancé’s job, leaving me jobless! With that said, I took my advise and decided to follow my dreams of owning my own spa. Today is a day that I can actually say that I am pursuing my dreams. Now after a few months, I am not sure if I will still be this happy going to school again, … Read entire article »
