Who Knew?


So today I was looking through all the different logos & blog templates I had purchased over the years on Etsy.  As I was scrolling through, I came across this logo design that I purchased and had customized with my name.  Gave me chills to see this, considering it was purchased in 2010!  Olivia "Grayce" was born three years later.  I had nothing to do with naming her, neither did her father.  So this just blew me away.  Further proof that her and I, we were meant to be together.  Come hell or high water.

DD, and I don't mean Dunkin'Donuts


So yesterday was your typical day, I got up, I went to work & I came home.  Nothing crazy, the only difference is Miss O has been sick lately and so she stayed home with me on Monday & then dad the rest of the week.  Well I guess, at some point our little darling decided to sneak off and do something naughty.....picture this....

It's 8pm, bedtime!  Our little sweet heart is sitting in her room watching "her shows" when I walk into her room and immediately smell....you guessed it POOP!  She doesn't pay me much attention until I say "why does it stink in here, it smells like Poop Olivia!"  She looks up at me, faking being confused and says not a word.  Billy is behind me, and quickly says - "I don't smell anything, what are you talking about".....I continued to grill the girl about the smell in her room when she finally says she doesn't want us to be mad at her.....now, this obviously has old poop that happened earlier in the day, and I quickly decided I was done - this one I was leaving dad to figure out, find and deal with.....which he did.

Turns out, our princess decided to poop into a pot that goes to her kiddie kitchen and store it under her bed, out of sight - but not out of smell - good Lord did that room stink!  I guess after the ordeal, of cleaning up the pan and searching for more of her little devils donuts he decided that the smell must have leaked into her skin & decided to give her another bath.  I just sat in my recliner - trying not to laugh as he confusingly questions her on why she would do that.....lol!

When he finally was done, and came out of her room I asked him "Well, did you finally smell it then dear?" to which he gives me the "fuck you Lela" look that he's famous for!

AHS Season 7



So, the much anticipated American Horror Story/Cult came out this week, and I of course watched it-as I had planned all along-even though there was so much hype on facebook/twitter & other social media outlets regarding how it was going to be a bashing against the POTUS.

I really only watch TV to escape from the real life, and I didn't want to watch a show bashing him, or the left.  I just wanted to escape from the every day bullshit.  This show did provide it, it wasn't what I thought it was going to be from reading the shit I mentioned earlier.  Sure there is a darker message, and sure there are some controversial conversations and moments that gave me pause - but I'm interested, and a little hooked as I have always been when I start a new season of AHS.

Enjoy you felling AHS fans, enjoy!

Round Two?


Well, I decided to join WW again since I did, in fact, loose 27 pounds while following the plan.  Once I jumped off the plan the weight jumped back on my ass - or should I say belly.  Gosh!  I miss being able to move around easily and that is what I found when I had that weight off.  I can't deal with the weight I am now, it's to uncomfortable.  Time to get back on track and really focus on myself & making myself feel and look better - even if it's just 27 pounds or 127 pounds lost.  The number isn't the issue-it's how I feel and the ease I'd like to have in my movements and my body.

I was going to wait until Monday to start - but honestly there is no time like the present and so I've done it, I am back on the plan.  I am back into investing in myself.....I have a closet full of really pretty tops that will thank me for it - because they'll stay in my closet & they'll fit me again, and they can show their pretty faces to the world :)

I don't hate myself, and I don't hate being fat or fat people.  I just hate the way I feel.  Now having said that, wish me luck!  Everyone knows I suck at sticking to anything.....but I am going to try to have a little more faith in myself.....
