One sexy Momma!

Today I dug out a dress that I bought almost six years ago. Way before I ever thought of having kids. And back when my husband and I were newly wed’s.
This dress was a dream date night dress. A combination between Audrey Hepburn’s my fair lady striped dress and Marilyn Monroe’s tight fitting 1950’s style.

I had to have it then and I still want it now.
As I looked at the dress hanging up in my closet safe from stains in its garment bag, I felt the urge to try it on.
Now since having kids my weight has fluxed up and down in numbers. This feeling of dread washed over me. What if I get it on but it won’t zip up? Or worse what if I can’t get the dang thing back off?!
I decided to go for it anyways.

And what do you know it fit!

Two years after having kids.

It felt amazing to see myself once again rocking this amazing dress. Self esteem reestablished.

As a pregnant woman it was hard for me to see myself back to my almost original weight post pregnancy.

Me at 25 weeks

But with breast feeding for as long as I could with twins the weight just fell off. And getting back to my normal routine of eating was and has been a major contributing factor. 

And it looks like all of my efforts to slim back to my original weight have paid off.
I’m not one to brag. But this feels great to see myself in this dress once again.
Date night here I come!

The unthinkable happened during the past week. We had the pleasure of doing business with two complete psycho’s.
Their is nothing more aggravating than to deal with people who act and look like inbred Hicks.

Here is what happened. My husband and I have been searching for a cheaper place to rent so that we could save more money. Which is still a good plan regardless.
I had been searching in our local news paper for the past few months for something reasonable and within a timely distance of family. One day I came across a rental add in our local news paper for an apartment that was well within our price range. So I called them and of course got all the information. They seemed nice enough on the phone. When my husband came home I explained all of what I was told to him. Later that day we went to look at the rental. The apartment was nice especially for the price.
So we decided to go for it. After setting up the agreement that sometime the following week we would bring the deposit to hold the apartment for one month. These people agreed to that. Now keep in mind we never promised that we would bring the money on the specific day that we got it but we would bring it sometime that week.

Well the day that our money hit our account we had some family matters come up that needed immediate attention. So that took priority. And we forgot to call and let them know that we were still coming but something had come up.

We called them two days later and explained the situation and was letting them know that we would be bringing the money on this day. We had already put down the deposit.
Now here is the fun part. These people proceeded to call us liars and promise breakers. Which is numerous because we never made promises in the first place but did guarantee that we would have the rest of the money to them by the end of that week.

They refused to rent to us because their feelings were hurt. So we said “ok we will be over to get our deposit see you soon”

We arrived at their home and my husband went up to get our deposit back. I stayed in the car with our children. By the way they acted and treated us on the phone I was prepared for the worst.

As a precaution I had 911 dialed and ready to be called.
Twenty minutes after standing his ground and be called every insult in the book including some ridiculous ones we got our deposit back.

As soon as we were turning around in the drive way to leave the daughter came and stood in front of our vehicle. By this time I locked our doors and rolled up the windows. The daughter continued to yell at us. So I moved the car forward slowly to try and get her to move. She finally started to get out of the way only to come to my drivers side window. Making sure that she could see what I had pre diled I hit send and called 911. As soon as I did she backed off but still followed us a little ways down the drive all while I talked to the dispatcher. We then went to the local police station and made a report.
The police officer was so great and told us that if the check didn’t go through to let us know. Because it would be considered a crime.

Thankfully our bank us open seven days a week. So we were able to cash it before they could cancel it.

But now we had no place to stay permanently.

Thank God for family!
Our family gave us a place to stay when our new place was ripped away from us at the last possible second.

What was to be learned in the situation. Never trust an old nitty and her crazy daughter who don’t run their business as an actual business lol. Lesson learned.

Now things have been moving forward for us and we are going to be buying our own home soon. So in the end we had something good happen.

Today has been a good day. My daughters grow more and more adorable everyday.

Today is special mainly because this is one of the days our girls can spend some quality time with their dad.

Sitting here watching them interact with him using their twin jibberish lingo. Realizing that they are little people, with their own thoughts, ideas and expressions. 

It hit me harder today. I have two toddlers! They are intelligent, goofy, sophisticated little fashionistas just waiting eagerly to explore the world and what it has to offer.

While they play ant smasher they giggle and laugh at their accomplishments. Sitting next to their dad and occasionally looking to him for praise of a job well done. The sincerity behind their beautiful big blue eyes. The excitement in their voices. It fills my heart with joy and fills my eyes with tears of happiness.

I dont have a clue or idea what my life would be without them. Perhaps dull or boring. 

Children really do bring an inexplicable joy to your life.

Their genuine curiosity and playfulness takes me back to my childhood. And makes me happy to see them happy like i was growing up.

I cant wait to keep experiencing these moments in time and freeze them in my memory. I hope to make the most of them. And I pray that they love me for being their mother.

Call me emotional but that’s a mother for you.

I felt like trying this site out mainly for their nail polish and it turns out to be one of the best monthly subscriptions for me to have. 

I love doing my nails whether it be manicures or pedicures. It is one way to pamper myself without having to spend money on gas to get to a nail salon and then money for the Mani or pedi. 

 

Julep.com has a great monthly box called the maven box. Where once a month you receive exclusive products at discounts.i enjoy this monthly box. You can also customize the box to what you want in it. Which is pretty nice. 

So I signed up using the promo code “HELLOYOU” and got my first box free. 

you can also use your friends as a refference to help you get special deals.

But anyways i have started a new collection of polishes and i have not been disapointed with them yet. 

The mint pedicure cream is a must have. It smells great and leaves your tootsies feeling softer than ever.

I would sincerely recommend this company and their products. Did i mention that they manufacture their products here in the U.S.A?

Good quality stuff. Good nail care. And great makeup too. Yes they are more than just great nail care products. 

So why not try this out?!

It has made me happy every month. Cant wait for my next box to come.

 

what a newb!

Never thought that I would start a blog site of my own. I enjoy reading others blogs and finding things in common or relatable to what they write about.

As a mom of twins and wife to a good man I find myself experiencing unique things in life. Things that are humorous, sad, and stressful. Maybe you can relate or just find my life funny. In any case this is me and my experiences. Like it or not. 

Thank you for taking interest and I hope that what I write can have some kind of impact someon your life and keep you positive in life.
