Why herrro! 
WE MADE IT! 1 year down & many more to go! (:
Sorry I've been M.I.A. lately -- I've been taking a time out from the web & staying offline for a few.  I totally forgot that I promised you all [my followers... IF there are any of you out there] pics of the cute Pinterest gifts I put together for my hubby.  So here it is:

1.  The usual - heart shaped box of chocolates, BUT instead I added his choice of poison: his good friend, Jose Cuervo mini tequila bottles!  I actually didn't realize I bought that big of a box, so the tequila didn't fill the box :(  So I had to compromise and put both the Hershey's Pot of Gold chocolates w/ the Jose Cuervo tequila bottles.
2.  A handy dandy mason jar filled with Hot Tamales candy!  See our FIRST Valentine's Day I used the same kind of candy.  It's a fave of ours.  So I had no other choice, but to use it again.  Then of course I had to add a touch of *me* to it with some cute animal print ribbon :)
3.  (NOT pictured) I bought him a recliner.  He's been wanting one to put in the living room - his "man" chair LOL
I was actually surprised when I woke up.  I knew he was working up something downstairs the night before [he wouldn't let me go downstairs past the landing LOL].  The next morning I come downstairs to my dining room table filled with cute gifts and rose petals covering the floor and table from my hubby & boys!
When it comes to me, I don't need something BIG or expensive.  Every once in a while, something big or flashy is fabulous, but the thoughtful ones are what's best.  A single flower of my fave is good enough.  I think my favorite gift from him this year was:
"my love for you stops when the last rose dies"
[yes, the rose in the middle is fake (:]
Then later on that day, my sister came by once she got off work and we dipped to OG!  Olive Garden DUHH!  Since I take "too" long to get ready [pshhh!]  we had to stand around in the cold/waiting room for an hour... duhhfuck...  It def was nice to get out.  That cabin fever hits me quite a bit LOL.

Pain, Pain, Go Away!

So yesterday, my stubborn self finally ended up going to urgent care, or "minor care" as they now call it.  Once AGAIN I broke out with boils after delivering my newbie.  This happened when I had my little big man and now all over again.  It friggen sucks!  It is one of the worse pains I've ever felt.

**Don't worry I won't post any pics of the nastiness, but the details, in my opinion, are just as gross**

When I had my little big man, I got what I thought was a pimple on my spine... Then it started getting bigger... and bigger... and bigger.  Then a tiny black head forms on the top.  The so called "pimple" starts to harden.  My family applied hot compresses on it and tried to drain it.  It's pretty disgusting.  It's a greenish/yellowish puss that oozes out.  We ended up going to the emergency room.  Turned out boils are a type of staph infection.  Well they wouldn't go away.  I would get them anywhere on my body.  So they tested it and the type of staph I had was a bad one -- MRSA (mer-sah).  I had to take some antibiotics to fight the infection.  This medication you have to finish ALL of it.  Well when I did my infection was going away, but then I broke out in hives all over... That's when I found out I was allergic to sulfa. 

So this time around with my newbie, same thing has happened.  I ended up getting 3 on the inside of my left thigh, 1 inside my right thigh, and 1 below my right booty cheek.  Again, at first I thought I had randomly gotten a pimple on my thigh.  Then I tried to ignore it.  WRONG move! 

**If you wait for them to get bigger, the likely chance it becomes an abscess that needs to be cut open to drain the puss.**

So since I had [[5]] of various sizes, [[3]] of them had to be cut open and drained.  To say it was excruciating would be an understatement.  I was screaming/sobbing hysterically.  I'm so thankful my husband was there to hold my hand.  Beforehand, the nice nurse was kind enough to give me some medicine to calm me down and even a pain reliever shot in my ass.  I don't know if it helped me any. 

After they drain it, they put a wick in it to leave the wound open enough to heal from the inside out.  Well my problem this morning:  I try to change my gauze and the wick from 1of my open wounds is already out and dried to my gauze...  So once again -- I'm panicking.  Why?  I don't want to call the doctor and find out I need to get cut or have it repacked.  I'm hoping my meds are enough, but I'm still going to call my doctor.  As the saying goes, "it's better to be safe than sorry" right?  :-/  This is one of the reasons why I hate seeing the doctor. 

I'll keep you posted!

1 Year * Countdown!


I figured I'd spread the joy because I'm pretty stoked!  I have a week until my [1 YEAR] anniversary with my hubby!!!  *EeeK!! (Yes... that's me screaming teehee). 

And yup -- it will also be Valentine's Day! 

Plus I found some cute/crafty gift ideas on Pinterest.  Since I have some time to spare when my newbie is sleeping, I spend my lovely free time (aside from house chores) creeping on Instagram and Facebook.  I like to think it's better than me blowing money I don't have on online shopping :p  Aren't the gifts you make supposed to be more meaningful?  "Yes" --Shhhweet!  Once I finish putting everything together, I'll post some pics.  I don't think my hubby reads my blog, so hopefully I'm in the clear.

Luckily, I have such an awesome family.  My sister offered to watch the boys for us so we can go out for our Anniversary/Valentine's Day.  "Thank You" doesn't even begin to cover it. 

Per my last post, I know I really haven't been feeling it, but I'm actually excited about our plans :)

NEW Mommy -- Again!

It’s been 8 years since I’ve had to change diapers and take care of a newborn. Now I get to experience all of that again; dirty diapers and all. My newborn is 2 weeks old and I can confess that I’m still trying to process everything. Whether it’s trying to get in a routine with the baby, still focusing on my little big man, being a wife, being home all day, my hormones, and trying to feel somewhat attractive again… I feel like a complete mess and I’m still somewhat in a daze. Even hearing the word “wife” throws me for a curve sometimes. We’re 7 month old newlyweds :) and it still feels brand new to me.

So again, it’s only been 2 weeks and I feel like its mission impossible. My emotions are in a twist. I thought after delivering my baby my hormones would snap back into place. WRONG. I still find myself down, on the verge of crying, actually crying (shh…!), or zoned the eff out (I’ll try to keep the cussing to a minimum). I find myself overthinking quite a bit. Can you blame me!? I’m at home all day, so my thoughts are bound to wander. I’m second guessing myself more than usual, every comment made I’m trying to “decode”… I feel like I’m going crazy.

I have my on and off days, but doesn’t everyone?

The day before my birthday I was a mess. It carried over onto my birthday because I ended up spending it by myself – cleaning our house and taking care of our newbie - and in a way I thought it was kind of half-assed. I turned 25 – isn’t that some special life mile marker?? I got a “happy birthday babe”, a smooch or two, and some cute gifts. But no strawberry cake... *my FAVE!* I suck at buying gifts or planning, but sometimes I feel like I try too hard or put too much effort when it comes to him. It’s whatever though; the day has already come and gone.

So again, I’m sorry for such the down vibe as my first post. I promise my other posts won’t be so depressing :)
