Take Me the Way I am

So I’ve been blogging for a while now. I love it. It’s fab and great and I really love checking out other blogs.
But, I’ve been hiding something.
The real me. Not like I’m not the momma that loves to post about her baby and about baking and about preciousness, but there’s more.
I’ve been blogging like I’m attending a work function – polite, appropriate, casual. Not like the sassy, sarcastic, ridiculously silly and wine-loving girl that I am.
Even though I have a baby I still like to go out with my lady friends and get dressed up and eat yummy food. I still like to stalk people on Facebook, and I still talk about them with my lady friends when we are out eating delicious food in our lovely dress-up clothes.
I’ve been pretending that since I had Jackson I don’t drop the ‘F-bomb’ occasionally (or every day, but never to my baby, of course), or that I don’t like to watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and gossip about them to my friends like these women live next door.
I guess I’ve been worried that someone will judge me or think I am a bad momma because I have days that I wish I had a babysitter to help me finish laundry/rock my teething baby/change the 8th poopy diaper for me because honestly, I can’t wipe any more sh*t today and I just want to workout for an hour without worrying what I have to cook for dinner and why the hell can’t I seem to lose this damn muffin top??
But my favorite blogs (Heir to Blair, Cleared for Takeoff, and Miss Mommy) always tell it like it is for them and that’s why I love to read what they have to say.
SO, here goes a new start for me. I can’t promise you will think I’m funny, but I think I’m hilarious and I probably read this blog more than anyone else (except my husband, bless his soul, and he better think I’m pee-your-pants funny), so I’ll tell myself jokes if I have to :).
Here’s the pre-momma me:

Some things never change… forever will I have the “kissy-face”. Take it or leave it :)


  1. Chica, pretty sure people would be more creeped out if you didn't want to occasionally hire someone to take over butt wiping duty. Seriously, some things about motherhood are freaken gross.

    Don't abandon the kissy face. You need to be 90 and making that at girls bingo night.

  2. i had something funny to say, but my dog just started barking in his sleep and i busted out laughing! :) lol :) came from the follow fest!

  6. New follower from the Follower's Fest! Can't wait to read more of your blog!

  7. Live doesn't stop because we get married or have babies. For so many it seems it does. BORING! We still date ( a lot) we still go dancing, I still do girl's was meant to be enjoyed and if those things make us happy then we are happy moms and our children would thank us for that. p.s NO "f" bomb for me but sometimes I'm afraid the windows in my house are going to burst from the y.e.l.l.i.n.g. What can I say? I'm trying to be better :)
    Found you through the followers feast. You are real..and I'm following :)
