thick hair girl problems

So after my post earlier this week about Pokemon Go, I think I should at least clarify that we're not zombies on the phone running all over the city for these we just play it when we can and sometimes make a date out of it.

Anyway, back to what this post is really about....

If you've been blessed/cursed with thick hair, stand loud and stand proud, and definitely nod your head with these problems you've probably encountered in your life.

Dreading shower time because you know it's going to take 2.5 hours to wash all of your hair #fml



Finding bobby pins a week later in your hair when you put it up for an event #thatswhymyhairissobig



Making hair babies in the shower

Finding your hair on the couch, the pillows, your husband, your child, the floor, everywhere.



Laughing or maybe weeping at the fact that you know your hair will still be wet the next day after you've washed it


fighting the constant urge to hack it all off but knowing that length is your friend



attempting to survive in the summer heat, but most likely dying


being kind of envious of the women who can  pull off the effortless styles with one bobby pin

pokemon go is life

This past weekend was very eventful for us, I felt like it was very go, go, go.

We got a new fridge.

I got a new tattoo.  It's the fox, in case you didn't know that I got the arrow last year.

I added onto my birds of a feather tattoo.  If you remember I got that about two weeks ago, so I added 10 more to make it look more natural with the birds flying out.

We caught lots of Pokémon in Pokémon Go, and yes, we both play it.  And yes, we're walking soooo much more.

We had lots of Sophie cuddles and Sophie time, which I absolutely love.  And lots of Starbucks drinks.


and to end out this wonderful weekend....I am currently dealing with food poisoning.....so I'm actually finishing up this post in between bathroom breaks.

Joy.

Not to the world though.

counting your blessings

It's been a long week and an even longer weekend and the beginning of another long week.  I think with the violence and the deaths in this past week it really made for a mellow weekend and a somber week ahead.

I really just needed some time to myself this weekend, which I found.  I think even the best need time away from everyone.  With all of the senseless  violence, and excessive brutality, and just murders, I needed sometime to soak up my family.  All of it.  My mom as well.  I needed to remind myself again, how blessed I am.  How I may not have much but I have everything I need.  And I think this weekend reminded me how blessed I really am.

I have a daughter.  A beautiful, smart, sassy, funny daughter.
I have a husband.  A man who supported me through pregnancy and continues to support me everyday, and takes care of his daughter.
I have a mother.  A women who raised me to become the woman I am today.
I have friends and family.  Just another reminder of how lucky and blessed I really am.

I know I haven't been blogging nearly as often or as consistently.  And a part of it is I want to soak up the family time I have.  Working an opposite schedule means I don't see Kyle everyday or at least not in the way you would expect, hi-bye, doesn't count to me.  And another part of it, is sometimes I feel obligated to write a post when there is nothing to write about.  And that's not what I want this blog to become.

So, with that being said, today, hug your loved ones and let them know that you're always grateful to them and what joy they bring into your life.  Sometimes we all forget how blessed we are.  And we forget to count your blessings, because you probably have a lot more than you really do.
