For the past few years I’ve had a mile-long list of things I want to do with my blog and it just hasn’t happened because 1) I keep getting pregnant, 2) every time I get pregnant I eventually have another baby sucking on my boobs all day and 3) I have 37 business ideas (no joke) that I’m always trying to work on, so sadly the personal blog shit ends up on the back burner of an old broken-down stove aka ain’t nobody getting to it.
They say if you want something bad enough you have to just DO it. So this is me, doing it. I looooove being creative, I love writing, I love talking, I love meeting new people, I love baking, I love taking my kids new places, I love learning, I love God, I love shopping, I love helping people change their lives through food, I love listening to podcasts and I love laughing hardest at my own jokes.
WHAT’S GOING THROUGH MY HEAD
I want to show you who I am and most importantly, I want to inspire you to love yourself and to make shit happen for yourself.
I want all my years of starving myself to be useful in some way.
I want all the hours of business podcasts I’ve listened to to help you create your dream job.
I want to show you you can have a career and get into your skinny jeans with babies.
I want to be an inspiration for other girls and I think my story is one to be shared.
I struggled with my weight for a LONG time and I finally figured it out so I’m sharing my knowledge and experience to save you from doing the same.
My life is mayhem as a stay-at-home mom of two toddlers and a baby with a husband who works 13hr days.
I’m alone. I mean, I have a husband and three kids, but all week long it’s just me here with kids and it’s really fucking hard.
My mom is dead. I still cry about it (crying right now actually) and wish she were here to meet my babies, but not having her has forced me to make shit happen for myself without relying on anyone’s help. I was a brat when she was here and I’m sure I would be still if I could call her to babysit on a whim.
I thought I’d love being a SAHM, but it’s so much harder than I ever imagined (isn’t everything, though?). I’m obsessed with my babies and I’m SO lucky to be home with them, but I need my career. I’m not happy if I’m not creating stuff. It’s just how I’m wired. Right now I’m figuring out how to balance momming and entrepreneuring at the same time… Keep you posted.
My motivation to succeed is to 1) retire Rory from his insanely dangerous job, 2) help girls stop yoyo dieting and to make shit happen for themselves and 3) give 90% of my income to people who need it more than I do.
Gosh I could go on and on.
I stalk (STALK!!) Pinterest constantly for inspo and ideas. I’m suuuuuch a visual person if I start plugging pics into a mockup I can lose myself in it for an entire day. Below are the type of images I’m teaching myself how to take. I love lots of bright white with warm skintones, but not overly saturated. Ugh I need to take a photography class. I can take an OK picture and I have a great camera (Canon 80D), but I really don’t know what the hell I’m doing. Add that to my list of “TO DO’s” for this year.
Top of that 2018 list right now: DON’T GET PREGNANT.
