The 60 Day Mad Rush!

I feel like I'm so far behind! Hopefully today, I'll have a final decision on my wedding flowers, have our ceremony done, & my vows written. Cake appointment is Wednesday. Still waiting on my bridesmaids to get their shit together :) (fml lol)

Ahhhhhhh

58 days!

#Warriors

The best way I have to describe the (Dudley and Bob) #Warriors is: We're a bunch of over glorified radio groupies :)

We're this dysfunctional group of people that found each other on the internet after having to give Bobby Bones a lesson in why you don't mess with our radio show lol (some of them predate this, I do not)

I had a rough go during my pregnancy with my daughter. Half because hormone changes make me a psycho & half because I was dealing with the emotionally abusive man-child  that knocked me up.

After it was all said & done, I was a postpartum depressed wreck. I felt like I was drowning. My ex did quite the number on me emotionally & mentally. Other than work & doing the mommy thing, I had no life. Very few friends. Although, the few that stuck around also came to our rescue.

That's where the #Warriors came in. First, Amanda, then Nancy; Erika & Justin. Logan even drove me to work after my car broke down once..

Y'all let me be a crazy wreck. Never told me to shut up or to stop feeling sorry for myself (at least not to my face ;D).

Even CJ, he stopped me at an event, gave me a hug & told me to stop being so hard on myself <3

Who would've thought a radio station & it's fans would've been a big part in what brought me back from the darkest place I've ever been.

Thank you for hating all the things I hate. For your mean spirited humor. And your incredibly inappropriate shenanigans.

Now you can go vomit :)

Love you bitches

Shit Just Got Real

A little over 60 days! Ahhhhhhhh!

Alterations started today.

Finishing wedding music, ceremony, & vows.

Still need a cake.

Need to order B's flower girl dress & pick the ties for the groomsmen.

And I need a new bathing suit for the honeymoon!

Hopefully, our passports will be in soon.

Holy cow...7 months is flying by...

I guess the next question is do I remove the baby blocker before the wedding or wait until we come back?

Oh & we're moving in Oct right after B's 3rd bday.

There's so much going on!

Parenthood, Toddler Tantrums, & Weddings

If you're not willing to abandon your ego, spontaneity, late nights dragging in when the sun is coming up, bar hoping, sleeping in, & getting anywhere in a timely manner... then you shouldn't be a parent :)

It's stormy & gross outside. B & I are cuddling & watching Despicable Me. Best day off <3

I'll never understand people that don't love their children. I had roommates that were like that. They were so bad I had to testify against them in court.

I'm constantly hugging, squeezing, tickling, squishing, cuddling, & loving on my kid. It's gross lol

She's a pain in my neck. She's hard headed & she makes me crazy. But it's because she's 2.

Even when she's throwing one of her many tantrums, she makes me laugh & it's really hard to parent your child when you're laughing at her.

I've never spent more than 48hrs away from her (that was hard enough) & our honeymoon is 5 days (ahhhhhhh!) I probably won't enjoy myself since I'll be missing her so. She probably won't notice since Grandma Ward has so many fun things planned for them to do.

All of my mom friends laugh at me & tell me to let it go, that I deserve a break...

*le sigh*

90 days...

I'm looking forward to our wedding & honeymoon. I'm looking forward to 5 days on a beach with my husband :}

And, I'm super excited to make our little family official <3

Parenting

Being a parent means putting your children above everything else. It also means teaching them that they are responsible for their feelings, actions, and words. That they aren't the entitled to be the center of the universe. Luckily for me, I have an amazing partner.

There's something to that saying: "Anybody can make a baby, but it takes a real man to be a daddy."

Wedding Workouts!

Holy crap y'all. My super fit bff is killing me with these workouts. We ran 3 miles around Lake Pflugerville on Monday. We stopped at every bridge & bench to do squats, pushups, & arm dip thingys (no, I have no idea what the correct effing term is & I also don't really care). My legs hate me. 7a workouts on my days off... ughhhh. Why can't I just have my 20 yro body back? Oh well. I just have to remember I'll be in a bikini for 5 days & I'm not planning on subjecting anyone to this hot mess! On the bright side my baby pooch is almost completely gone, my booty is ridiculous, & there's a visible difference in the amount of cellulite in my thighs. I feel good. I'm not as tired. Also, outside of work my mood has greatly improved!

103 days until I do!

Road Trippin'

We have a road trip home to see my baby sister graduate soon. This drive is like 9-11 hrs. We've never had BMad in the car this long before and had to keep her entertained. My little girl isn't much for sitting still. Thankfully, I have Pinterest to help me come up with ideas to keep her entertained!
