My Grandma

My Grandma has passed away… It wasn’t unexpected. We all knew it was coming. It seems like for the past three years now we have all known it could be any time. Every year we thought this could be her last Christmas or birthday so we need to make sure we spend time with her. […]

I recognize that kind of crazy!

Nausea, fatigue, tender breasts, bloating, frequent urination, food cravings or aversions….these are all tell tale signs of pregnancy. Most women experience these symptoms after a missed period and can tell that they are pregnant. But not me. Before I even missed my monthly I knew. I remember saying to myself…”I recognize that kind of crazy!” […]

Happy Birthday Baby James!

My eyes slid open at 8am. I felt relaxed, drugged, but relaxed. I don’t think that I had truly relaxed in over nine months. It had snowed over 12.5 inches over night and the entire city was shut down which is why my mom decided to stay in one of the hospital hotel rooms that […]

My Story- Day Two

As I was still looking out the window at 5:30am, my nurse came in to wake me up and give me time to take a shower. I asked her to wake me up the night before because I was sure that the Ambien would knock me out and I would sleep until it was time […]

My Story- Day One

It is finally my turn. I now officially have a story! You know the story I’m talking about.

I now realize […]

One shot around!

I have to start out by saying I heart my BFF! She is the one human who I can honestly talk to about things deep within my heart without feeling judgment or having to sugarcoat those scary thoughts in your mind. It has been that way since we were very young. Neither of us has […]

You crazy pregnant lady, no one stole your make-up!

Well, I know I haven’t blogged in a while and you all are in desperate need of crazy pregnant ramblings so here you go. I know that these blogs are open to the whole wide world (isn’t that what WWW. stands for?) to read, but I like to write this stuff for myself. Since I […]

The Ten Cannots

We might be learning these lessons the hard way in the near future. Lets hope not! You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot […]
