2013 was nothing I expected it to be, yet everything I needed it to be. I never thought the year would start out the way it did or go as amazingly as it did. Everything I have ever hoped and dreamed for happened this year and I can’t wait for next year to see what adventures lie ahead of us!
1. I met this one boy.
In February I met this boy. I had no idea the amazing relationship that would soon start, but I am so beyond grateful that it happened.
As stated in my first post about the home we purchased, we bought a fixer upper. This is something M and I wanted to venture into. We wanted a home with character and over the years we wanted to renovate it into a masterpiece. A lot of houses these days are “cookie cutter” homes, where each one in the neighborhood/development look the same. I knew I wanted nothing like that. M and I knew we would be taking on a big task with this home and we were right, there is a lot to do. We are so excited though and I can’t wait to share this adventure of ours on this blog for those of you who want to read along!
I figured I would start with a home tour. Pictures of the home from when we bought it. Some of y’all might think i’m joking with these pictures, but I assure you I’m not. Haha. These pictures truly came from the day after we closed and we hadn’t touched anything yet. If you have questions about any of the rooms, the layout, or general questions, please feel free to ask away! We have big plans for this house and like I said before we are very VERY excited!
Each and every day my daughter reminds me why I love being a mom so much. Something about little girls is truly different. The way they talk, the way they act, and the way they react to certain situations. Sometimes baby girl will say things and I can’t help but laugh hysterically. Example? “I love you baby girl.” … “yes mommy, but do you love yourself too?!”
The list goes on and on of why I simply love having a little girl. Here are a few.
1. The way they watch you do your makeup, and then want to join in.
There is nothing I love more than when baby girl says “mommy, can I have some too?” I understand some people might not agree with putting makeup on your kids, but when its all just fun and games, I think it’s okay!
2. The way they want their nails done.
Baby girl is an avid nail girl. She always wants them painted and when they chip she tells you “mommy its broken, we need to fix it.” Its adorable, coming from a three-year old.
3. The way bows (and hats) make everything cuter.
You know what really irritates me? When waiters/waitresses constantly bash people who don’t tip 18% or above. I have seen so many things going viral lately about “poor tippers” and peoples reaction to them. Well here’s MY reaction.
I understand sometimes that isn’t the case. But over the past few days, it has so heavily annoyed me when everyone keeps saying that waiters or waitresses automatically deserve an amazing tip.
Am I the only one who feels this way?
We live in such a skewed society. We are constantly told we deserve more than we work for. I truly feel if you work hard for something, you deserve it. But you don’t deserve it “just because”.
Okay, rant over. Let the hate comments flow.
