For lack of better blogging ideas.. I'm using the prompts from A Mama Collective after seeing them over on Chambanachik's blog.

So. Currently->

Thinking about: How lucky/blessed/grateful I am for my life, my husband, my baby, my dog.  My parents, my sister, my in-laws, my best friends.  Sometimes it takes a huge life event to help you realize just how fortunate you are.. but dang'nabit... life is so precious and I am so fortunate to be where I am, even if I'm sleepless and still a bit sore.

Reading: Other than blogs, not a whole lot lately.  Hopefully I get back into my groove after the husband goes back to work, but right now?  Right now I'm still learning and mastering this whole being a mama deal.  It takes time, and I'm okay with that.

Listening to: The TV.  The dog snore across my lap.  My husband play Flappy Birds (so. freaking. annoying.).  The baby breathe sweetly in her sleep next to me.  The heater go.  And the keys click as I type out some extra energy for this here post.

Watching: At this very moment?  Intelligence.  Other things on my DVR? The Following, NCIS, NCISLA, Criminal Minds, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump Rules, Party Down South, Welcome to Myrtle Manor, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Duck Dynasty... yeah, we watch a lot of TV.  Which has been just fine because all we've done lately is watch TV when we aren't entertaining family.  Judge me.. it's okay.

Thankful for: this baby.  I'm thankful every single day for the precious little bundle God blessed Rob, Piston and I with.  She is the splitting image of her dad, with her momma's attitude and the sweetest little personality ever.  It is so cliche.. but the amount of love I have for her is absurd.. I didn't even know it was possible to love someone as much as I do this little girl.  And she's only been here for 2 weeks!!

We are in the recovery phase from the second wave of family here to visit the baby.  Rob's parents left this morning to head back to Missouri after visiting with us for five days.  It was a very busy five days showing them around the area and even roadtripping to the beach for a day trip.  Needless to say we spent the whole day laying around and I can't say that tomorrow will not be the same.

  1. Glad to hear things are going good! Take your time finding your routine, it has to work for you and little miss, so it's ok if it takes you time. No judging here, gotta do what ya gotta do and what you like. Our family loves watching movies. We watch about one a night lately. Nothing wrong with that. I just can't wait for it to stay lighter outside :)

  2. Thanks so much for sharing and linking up with us!! Your daughter is adorable. What a wonderful blessing! I see that you like reality tv just like me ;) I'm a little obsessed. Especially with RHOA! They're sooo hilarious. I can't even handle it sometimes it's too good. ~Jenna // A Mama Collective

  3. I absolutely love that picture of her! :) So glad things are going well and that you are getting adjusted. :)

  4. I am coveting that hat your daughter is wearing. Too cute! I agree with you about the love thing. I didn't know what love was until I met my daughter. Life really is amazing that way. When I was younger I never thought I wanted kids, but now that I have one, I can't wait to have more!
