Out and About!

Today we went shopping for new sneakers for my little one. We had a good day, of course I woke up at 8am, went grocery shopping and headed to the mall. It took us about 2 hours to get to the mall, of course we had to stop and get more formula, get the kids ready, stop and get lunch and then head to the mall...Its definitely not easy anymore getting out the house when you have a little one.

Rahan's older sister is visiting from NYC. They rarely get to see each other, so we took tons of pictures this past week (will post more later)!

Below is a photo of my Boogy today!

Goodnight All!

Photo of me now!

As promised, I mentioned I would upload a recent photo of myself! Since I rarely take pictures anymore I only have a picture that I took from Halloween with my baby!

As you can tell, there's a major difference - I decided to upload a few old pictures as well.

 This was taken October 2011 - I didn't take a full body picture because I now DISLIKE taking pictures. I used to LOVE taking pictures of myself.

Long day!

So I'm at home now, had a long day including a spa party with 11 girls. The turnout went well, and as always our customer was happy. I left about 10:30 this morning and came back home around 5pm.

I cooked a quick dinner, chicken spaghetti with butter and garlic sauce. I'm not a big cooker at all, but I am interested in learning more. My mom always says, now that you have your own family, it's time to start cooking on your own.

I have to wake up early to go to my other job in the office. I just need an extra 3 hours in a day!

I can't sleep!

Working 4 jobs including being a full-time Mom is definitely catching up to me! After having my son, I have a new found love for life, and I want to do literally EVERYTHING!

I don't think I've ever been so stressed in my life! I know one thing, it will all be worth it in the long run.

My 4 jobs are: Full-Time Mom, Part-Time HR Manager for a small company in Alexandria, VA, District Consultant for Plum District, and Entrepreneur

I should be asleep right now, but of course I can never sleep at night! I have a spa party tomorrow about an hour away from my home for 11 girls - my typical life!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas! I don't celebrate it (due to religious purposes), however I do have family and friends that celebrate it and its truly a wonderful time to spend with family and friends!

Why I started this blog?!?

I basically started this blog to motivate myself to get back to where I was before I had my son who is now 11 months.I also started this blog because I love to write, shop and meet new people! Boy do I love social media!

To be honest, I don't have any pictures of myself to post right now, because I don't take pictures anymore. The only picture I really have of myself was this past Halloween when I decided to dress decent and take a photo with my son (I'll post later this evening).

I’ve always loved fashion and everything about it. I wouldn’t dare walk out of the house without makeup on or my hair done. I’m ashamed to go around my friends now, because I’ve completed let myself go and am too ashamed to be around them. I haven’t permed my  hair in almost 2 years (May 2012), and I haven’t had my eyebrows done in Months.

If you knew me before I had my son and were to see me now, you’d be shocked.

So, I won’t share this blog with my friends until I can get back to my normal weight which was 125lbs, size 0 (I’ll settle for a 2 or 4). I’ll occasionally share photos of my progress, but I now weigh 155lbs!

Follow me as I reach my goal of getting back to my normal size and attempt to regain my fashion life! I love entertaining, shopping, trying new products, taking pictures, crafts and most importantly BLOGGING!

I’d love to meet some new friends along the way! Let’s have some fun!
