Bless his little heart...

I took my little man to the hospital in the middle of the night because he was burning up with fever (with no response to motrin or tylenol) & couldn't keep a single thing down. Poor guy!

TJ waiting on the doc with his auntie, teddy & bottle.

He has at least been able to eat a little, drink & keep it down (thanks to the anti-nausea meds) but he is still lacking energy & having fevers on & off. I'm exhausted & I know he feels just cruddy so please pray for him. I would really appreciate it. ♥

I hate it when little people get sick. =(

It's BABY fat... there's a difference!

In all my years, I have been petite.
Short & fit.. TNT, baby.


(Don't mind the hair.. sitting on the edge of cliffs in Maine didn't do a whole lot for it!)


Or at least until,
that little stick slapped me across the face with those two pink lines

At 6 months, I grew.

&by 8 months, I grew even more!

& a week before being induced, I REALLY grew!


I have to say I'm thankful for all those gained pants sizes & stretch marks...

because a mug that freakin' cute - so worth it! =)

Now, my son is worth it. Completely & sincerely, with all of my heart that is what I feel. But it is hard carrying extra weight around when you've been slim & fit all of your life. Really hard. I am "out of my element" & feel as though I have just completely lost myself. Who is that girl that stares back at me through the mirror? Hell if I knew, but I can't stand the b*tch.

Even more, I can't stand b*tches who have been over weight all of their life
 & when a thin girl gains weight they just
They eat it up like a twinkie that's just been battered, deep fried & plated with powdered sugar & fudge.
Well, kiss my pretty fat ass.
At least I was skinny & got fat,
you've always been fat.

&By the way, it's BABY FAT, b*tch...
there is a difference!

I am more determined than ever to get back in shape.
Tomorrow - IT'S ON! =)

Thanks to all of my bloggie BFFs for dealing with my vent & pic overload.
I feel much better. =) haha

So, have I ever mentioned...

that I absolutely LOVE to go out with friends & karaoke it up? I'm so serious, I am a karaoke bar star. hahah Now that I'm a mommy & the soldier has been away & all of that... I karaoke on-line. LOL When I hear myself, I try to do some convincing to NEVER sing in public again... but it's just so much fun. I thought I would share a little something something. BE NICE, comments! =) Kthanks =)

I just made a karaoke recording: Jewel - You Were Meant For Me check it out at

Etsy Give Away!

My etsy shop hasn't had any sales yet, so to help promote my shop & gain confidence in potential customers, I am having a give away!

I wanted to do something a little silly, so I posted in the Promotion Forum with two ways to win a little happy from my shop. First one being kill the thread! (of course) & the second one being post your funniest "awkwwaaard" moment. I'm so looking forward to the second one. =) hehehe &I'm going to need YOUR help to judge who wins. Hopefully there will be a good turn-out! =)

Anyway, on to other news. I was so looking forward to a relaxing night without my kiddo.. &then just now, his auntie called with a change of plans. She said she'd keep him tomorrow night instead. Oh well, I guess I will just have to take what I can get. lol I'll aim for that real post a little later when my main man is asleep. =)

Take care!

Isn't distance supposed to make the heart grow fonder??

Or some sh*t like that?

It seems like all my soldier and I have been doing lately is argue, argue, argue. About what? Psh, I don't even remember. I couldn't even tell you.

It's not like we stay mad at each other or anything, but, oh IDK... I think we just miss each other and this is our way of keeping the fire burning. HAHAH Or something of that extent. =)

Good news, however. The soldier put his "wish list" together. I was praying Italy & Greece would be one of the options to wish for... but not this time around. LOL I was so hopeful, too! Oh well! So now it will be a lottery out of : Hawaii, Germany, Alaska, Texas, Georgia, and North Carolina. I really would like for us to be stationed at one of the last three... just because of the whole Trying To Conceive thing(thanks to Radiant Readhead for the nice welcome into the club, btw! haha). It would be nice to be somewhat closer to family and friends so that there is a greater chance that we may have visitors and help and all of that good stuff. =) Even tho I have a feeling if we were stationed in Hawaii they would make more of an effort! ...just saying. =)

Anyway, I'm going to take a few minutes to drop by some of your blogs before heading to bed. Maybe I'll feel motivated enough to comment! Ooooh! =)

SO, true story...

My hubby and I are all excited about the idea of a new addition to the fam... regardless of the 9 months of the incredible morphing body, crying for no reason, "does this make me look fat?", yoga pants, A Baby Story, disturbing craving dinner creations (peanut butter & beets, anyone?), "baby, rub my back?", "ow, my feet, rub my...", "I CAN'T GET COMFORTABLE!! *rawr*", etc. Yes, for those who have never expected... I bet you can't wait now! =)

SO, anyway, I went down to Bama to visit the hubby. The first night we got it on like Marvin Gaye, the second night.... was a no go.

 Who invited the bitch with the little ribbon-tied box??


LOL So, I guess I had just gotten a little too excited before... but now that the topic has come up & we realize we both feel the same about baby making, we are tossing out the love gloves! =D

Shameless Etsy Promotion =)

I have recently opened my own etsy shop which features my paintings & displays some of my new ventures into the world of jewelry making. I'd be just delighted if you would take a moment & visit my shop, maybe share your favs on your facebook or make a purchase - everwhat. =) Keep in mind, it's still very very new & I'm actively working on improvements & more inventory. =)

Do you know what's awful? What's awful is I have a lot of things on my mind, things that I really feel like I just need to pull back & THROW off of my chest... but my husband reads this blog & it would just open a can of worms. *sigh* I need more friends in this area. It's terrible having your best friend away from you, but then on top of that being away from your family & friends... it's basically like being all alone in the world. I need friends who live around here. STAT. =)

The problem is I've never had to try to make friends. How do you try to make new friends in unfamiliar areas? Suggestions or advice anyone?

Two timing. Ooh yeah.

So a few months ago,
I started two timing.

What I mean by that is I have created a second blog. =)

The other blog is mainly for lyrics, poetry, short stories, fiction, etc etc. All that creative crap. =)

I have yet to publish anything, just a bunch of saved posts.
I want to get this thing organized & ready to go. I'd like to have a few more pieces together before I start posting & sharing the url.

I am here to offer a sneak peak at one of my stories.

"I've never been one to sit around and waste time; always pedal to the metal in fast, foward motion. Some say I'm impatient, others say I'm just plain wreckless. What do I say? Who cares, you are you and I am me. And I like me. The end. So now that you have tasted a little nibble of what I'm all about, it only seems right to stay true to myself and not start with the bullshitting around now.

It all started..."

I'm excited for where my new little project is heading & can't wait to share more with you! =)

Actual post coming soon!

A honeybun in the oven?

Are you knocked up check-list :

= Do your OWWW! ...boobs hurt?

= Did you almost BLAAGHGHHHGGHHH lose your lunch at the smell of BLAAAAGHHHHHH... oops, nvm!

= Were you happysadcryinglaughingirritated&ahystericalhotmess all in the past 30 minutes?

= Are you completely drained & *ZzZzZzz.....* just want to sleep for hours &hours & hours?

= Have you missed your GiFT?

So far, 4 out of 5!

This could mean SO SO much adjustments to make in such a short amount of time... but, I'm pretty excited. =)

I know, I know... I shouldn't get too excited, whereas I don't know for certain anyway... but I'm sorry, I just wasn't really excited the first time around & later I realized WHY THE HECK NOT!? LoL &so, I learned from my mistake. I was stressed & a mess the entire 9 months &there was just no reason for it! The situation is much different now on top of it, much better. =)

K, will keep you updated on the status of this potentially fantastic news! =D I have a minute to catch up on my lovely blogirls & see what you all have been typing about! Take care & chat again soon! =)

My Anti-Drug, I suppose.

While the hubby is gone,
late at night when I can't sleep...
This is what you will find:
A good glass of wine.
A paint brush.
iTunes on jam.

They may not be anything special,
but I have fun. =)

Unbelievable, I know.

So basic training has come & gone.
The funny thing is I thought that I would use this blog to help me get through it all & keep track of funnies from my son & everwhat... but I didn't have time to hardly breathe!! LITERALLY, at one point I actually had pneumonia & was almost hospitalized! haha (Oh & JFF [just for fun], try being sexy while using an inhaler. see: 'impossible' & 'freaking hilarious'.)

After the big graduation ceremony which I almost slept through (too bad I didn't have an iPhone to blame it on... FTR, alarm clocks can be purchased at your neighborhood Wal-Mart for Ohhh IDK, about 5 dollars! *wink*), the hubby & I set off for a road trip get away! We hit up Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Jackson, Vicksburg&then back up to Memphis. It's not like we've never been to those places hundreds of times by now, but it was nice to spend time alone & get a chance to visit friends & family we haven't seen in a while. =) Then we flew up to Maine for Christmas with my family. It was a blast, until we were ready to leave. Oh yes, that was us up there, completely snowed in! For an extra 3 days! Even that part was fun, though.. because at least we weren't stuck at an airport! =D

So we finally made it home, & my hubby had just a couple days to visit with all of his family. By the time he left for AIT yesterday, we were all completely exhausted from all the visiting. &then we got stuck in that wonderful Memphis traffic, & he missed his flight!! LOL No worries, though, Huntsville is only about 3 hours away... so we hopped in the car for one last family trip for the next couple months. =) My son & I made it back around 4 this morning & fought each other for the bed until about noon.

Anyway, I just felt the need to stop neglecting & post something! I will not promise more updates because when I do it will be more like a pleasant surprise rather than a total & complete let-down. ACTUALLY, it may end up being both - who knows. haha =) I hope everyone was as glad to hear from me as I am to be back. =)

Oh, yeah. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! =)
