Crazy Life 2017 

Dirt! It’s her favorite thing!
I haven’t written in a while. Khloe and I have been sick, I’ve been busy with my review writing for Guidance Guide and Spring has Sprung around here so we’ve been out and about soaking up all the sun and outdoor things. 

My review writing with Guidance Guide is coming along. As I’ve said before this is a baby website/Company/Brand that is still working on launching. The Brand Ambassardors are working to build up reviews of items we already have for the sight to have a base. They have begun to send out items to some BAs for review and we are super excited about that. The website is still in its beta process and they’re working out the kinks. I’m excited to be a part of this process. It’s seriously going to be unlike any other parent website. You’re going to love it. 

I’m still plugging along on the Keto life. I’m at a pretty annoying stand still with my weight loss and have plateaued. I fluctuate 3-4 pounds a week. Super irritating and I’m debating what my next move is going to be. Adding more carbs is not an option for me. The low carb life has me feeling a lot better. I’m considering adding weight training back into my workout routine. Not as intense as I was before but maybe 2-3 times a week. It’s all my body cand handle and I’m aware of my limits right now. We will see what happens with that. 

Khloe is learning new things every day. She amazes me. I’m not the “play” mom that likes to play much but I’m finding ways to teach her colors through every day context. She’s doing great. 

My yard—- what am I going to do with my dirt pile of a yard? Ugh. All this work and no money to do it. Plus, I would honestly rather go on a vacation than invest money into a yard… priorities, right? Meh. Meanwhile children can’t even get clean water and I’m worried about a stupid lawn 🙄…. welcome to the US. #Americandream 🤑 If you have never lived or traveled outside of your suburban bubble and seen how people in other countries live, you’re doing yourself a disservice. It gives some prespective about American priorities…. right, Sis?? 😘

Holy crap! I’m going to be mid-thirties (35 in May…which means my goal to travel to India (real India) not resort India is coming up fast. I plan to do this before or on my 40th birthday! #goals ha ha We also may want to add another human to our family but we aren’t decided. Khloe said she likes getting everything for herself 😤🤣 jk jk… she doesn’t even realize. I’m sure she will if there was another baby in Momma’s arms, though?!  Ugh, baby… #teamnosleep Are we ready for no sleep, destroyed body and starting over again? Is anyone really ever ready for that? Which leads me to this:

Family planning in this day and age is a bit difficult. Nothing really happens on accident (sometimes it does but BC is 99.9% effective if used properly). If you want another child you have to GO to the doctor, GET the IUD taken out or intentionally stop taking it. Everything has to be in place. Do we have the money? Is this cost effective? Can we deal with starting over? Are we too old? Is the house big enough?  Do I want to gain weight again and put my body through this? BREASTFEEDING/PUMING which was all I did for 13 months. Postpartum Depression…. that’s a big fat NO! I def do not want to deal with that again… fml! If it JUST HAPPENED it would just happen and I wouldn’t have to plan this whole entire thing out and would take it as it comes. It’s a lot to think about. Choosing to have a child isn’t a small decision. Ugh…. too much to think about. Let’s not think about it for now…. 😜😌
