Happy Royal Wedding Day

Absolute perfection! A true princess! 
I’ve been glued to the television all morning,
even getting a little weepy. 
I for see hat accessories, or fascinators, as the new trend in the USA. 
They were ALL OVER the guests in attendance.
What are your thoughts?

Sacrifices made in the Mommy Hood

Motherhood goes down in my books as the greatest gift of them all.
But with gifts, 
comes sacrifice.

{the Webster’s definition}
Sacrifice: to surrender or give up.

We’ve ALL made a sacrifice,
at some point in our lives.
But for me,
I hadn’t begun to fathom the word “sacrifice”,
until I became a Momma.

Sure, Motherhood came naturally to me,
but it DEFINITELY was NOT what I had expected.
NO one or NOTHING
could have prepared me for the ride I was about to embark on.
{not even the What to Expect series}
Aside from the 9 months of no relief from nausea,
the up all nights,
loss of SELF,
{to name a few things}
having a baby ROCKED MY WORLD!

So without further adieu, I present to you,
MY sacrifices in becoming a MOMMA…


So long beloved VW Jetta

Hello Mommy TANK

……………..

Girl time becomes…

Mommy/Baby Park dates.
chit chatting with one ear,
while listening to screaming toddlers in the other
………………….
Relaxing Beach Days
are no longer relaxing
………………….
 Forever 21 short shorts to
J Crew capris
……………….
Rocking out to my favorite tunes in the Car
means
Elmo’s World on the DVD player
…………….
Shopping for myself
{more times than none}
turns into shopping for Landyn.
……….
Savvy Career women
is now
a domestic stay at home work in process
……..
Eating meant sitting down and enjoying a meal
while
Eating now is a power bar on the run.

What sacrifices have you made in the name of Mommy hood??
