8 month Blog update, life update

8 month Blog update, life update

Hello my Beauties! Happy first week of March! Yesterday marked a month till my Birthday. I have a post coming at you on my Birthday. I will be talking about getting older  and how I feel about it. So stay tuned.

As most of you know I update every month around the 1st on my blog. I started July 1, 2017. That was the date of my very first post and the day my Blog went Live. I will give a monthly update until my one year!

So for today It’s not about the pretty pictures, the cute clothes, the pretty makeup or the best new hair product. Today is about being real. If you are new to my Blog, I am a stay at home mom. I have been for the last 4 years. I have to say it’s not the easiest thing to do. I was always used to getting up going to work and being the best I can in the office. I’d come home and do what I had to do for David(my oldest) and my day would be done. I mean don’t get me wrong working mom’s don’t have it easy, No way!  I had my days that I wished I could stay home with my son. So now that I have the chance to stay home with Breaker(my second son) sometimes I wish I worked, LOL!

My days consist of waking up at 6am to get my oldest son up and ready for school. I drive him to school, come home and most of the days start my daily routine. Which is cleaning, laundry oh gosh never-ending laundry, LOL! I squeeze in a at home workout because it helps with my energy and just makes me feel good. My days are mostly in the kitchen, prepping lunch for Breaker and I. And starting dinner prep. I pick up David from school and finish dinner. I like to feed the kids by 5:30. I will most likely eat and clean up the dinner mess. Once the Hubs gets home from work, I will warm up his dinner and most likely finally take a shower. By this time it’s about 8pm. Everyone’s fed and the dinner mess is clean and I finally sit down for the day. Like really sometimes I don’t sit down till 8-8:30. Breaker does go to school two days a week for 3 hours each day. So those day’s I use to run my errands like target, market etc. On the fun days when he’s at school I get me a Mani and Pedi. Those are the best. I’m not complaining at all, I’m super lucky I get to stay home with my kids. But I bow down to all the stay at home Moms out there! I honestly bow down to all moms! Mom life is the best life but it’s not the easiest.

Now that’s real! Now to the blog update. I can’t say how proud I am of myself to have kept up with it for this long. My blog has been like therapy for me. Getting to take all those pretty pictures. Getting dressed up and putting makeup on feels so good. I live in work out gear and no makeup, So photo days are great. It’s therapy for me because it gives me something to look forward to on a weekly basis. I love putting new content up and sharing things with you all. On the daily I’m with my 4-year-old that all we talk about are trucks and toys. My teenager most of the time doesn’t want to talk. So having my blog I get to talk to you all once a week. I love that so much. I’ve gotten a better system when it comes to my blog and photos. I try to plan out at least 3 months of blog work so that I’m always working ahead of time. Sometimes I have writers block, Like what am I going to write. But like I said I love to share so I just try to keep it as real as I can. I want you to read my Blog and feel like we are talking over a cup of coffee. I’m trying my best and it brings me joy. I appreciate all of my blog followers, IG followers and all the comments left on my blog post so much. I truly feel so motivated by those comments.

Sending you all positive vibes and to all those stay at home Mamas, Cheers to being Bad ass! My working Mamas you guys rock! And the most precious to me because I was raised by one. The single Mamas doing it all, I think you ladies are the most amazing ever! Love you all. Till next post!

Pre-school update

Pre-school update

Hi Hermosas! Happy Monday, I hope all you beauties are relaxing at home on this labor day! It’s been so hot, I’m really looking forward to some cooler weather. I wanted to give you all an update on Breaker’s pre-school and how mommy is doing, LOL!

So the first day was perfect he went in his classroom so good, no crying! I think mommy and daddy had a harder time dealing. We picked him up and he looked so happy. Breaker loves to learn and was really needing some social time with kids. Being around mommy, daddy and big brother he really needed to be around kids his age. The reason we loved this school, not only location it takes me 5 minutes from home. They focus on social skills. That’s what we wanted more for Breaker right now. Now 2 weeks in and he loves going to school, But were having an issue. It’s quite funny but not funny! Breaker hates to wear shoes and the second day I guess feeling more comfortable he took his shoes off at school. Yes, I get to school and he has them off. The teacher is trying to put them back on him. I talked to him about it and told him he can’t do that at school. Shoes only come off at home. So the following week I give him another talk about keeping his shoes on. I get to school and pick him up and I’m so happy he has his shoes on. I go in to class to get him and I tell the teacher “oh good he kept his shoes on” she says ” No we just put them back on him, we had to chase him around class to get them back on” Standing there like “Oh!” This mama was lost for words and I’m a little lost on what to do. I gave him another talk on how important it is to keep shoes on. So let’s hope this week he keeps his shoes on, LOL! Besides that he is enjoying school!

So for me I’m loving it. I get a whole 6 hours a week to myself. I’m getting errands done, house cleaning, exercise and some quite time to work on my blog. I love it! Any mommy’s out there feeling sad or scared for little ones starting school.  Just know your not alone and believe me it’s such a nice thing for mommy and child. Hope you all got a little laugh from this post. I mean just picture those poor teachers running after my kid to put his shoes on! Geez, embarrassed mommy over here! Have  great week!

Why I started my blog

Why I started my blog

Hello Hermosas! It’s Monday another week to get Motivated! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I had a nice chill weekend! I had a photo shoot with my favorite photographer. Can’t wait to share the looks we did! I wanted to talk a little about why I started my blog. It’s been 3 weeks since I went live! It’s been such a fun 3 weeks. I hope you all have enjoyed my post! More and more to come, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to learn more and make new friends.

 

I’ve always been a shy girl, like really shy. At times my shyness gets mistaken with maybe being a bit snobby, mean or just unapproachable. But I’m not at all. I love meeting new people, Once you get to know, me we will be besties. So going back to why I started my blog. 8 years ago I had an idea to start a blog. I was a single working mom that at times wanted an escape from my daily routine. Well it never happened because, I was scared to put myself out there like that. In between, I met my soul mate, we got pregnant and we had a son.  Before maternity leave, I got laid off. It wasn’t a surprise it was a scheduled lay off. Which at the time was pretty nice because I was able to stay home with my baby. I was sad though. I had been at my job 16 years, it was my second home. So new to being a stay at home mom, it took a long time to get used to. When Breaker was 6 months old I wanted to start the blog I had always dreamt of. Even bought my domain and everything but never had the courage to put it out and actually write something. As time passed I was feeling a little sad, lonely and un-accomplished. I know I needed to do something for myself. As a stay at home mom, it can get lonely at times. I mean I’m super busy with the kids and my big guy! But I wanted some kind of escape for myself. I love clothes like love. I love to keep up with fashion, makeup, cool things. I remember back in the day going out, I would go on pinterest for outfit inspos. I would get a lot of compliments on my outfit choices. Finally to think at 38 I finally gained the courage to start my blog. I’m so excited, I love sharing with you all. My goal is to grow my blog family and give some beautiful working moms, stay at home moms or just ladies who want some inspo! So thank you if you are reading this. It means so much! I hope this wasn’t too long or too boring, lol! Till next post my blog family!
