The Hat

TheHat

Today I found a hat….

 

Okay not just any hat!  It’s a big floppy hat, a black and white floppy hat, a hat that I can totally see myself rocking all summer.  I was in the .99 cent store picking up supplies for my home office and low and behold this gorgeous hat is sitting on a shelf waiting for me to take it home.  I mean seriously it was a steal!  I swear this hat screamed!  It’s a very demanding hat.  As soon as I brought it home all craziness ceased as The Hat demanded a selfie!  The Hat also demanded a video, and finally a cocktail!  As if I didn’t already have enough task to accomplish!!  Bossy Hat!

 

So why has this Hat completely taken over my day?  Well friends, it is not often I get to splurge on fashion.  I mean being a SAHM has its perks, but fashion sadly has not been one of them.  A trip to target is about all I get these days.  Having to lug a toddler into Neiman Marcus is not what I call fun!  Speaking of which, I cannot believe I now have a toddler.  When I started this blog, he was 5 days old!  Wow, where did the time go?!

 

Now that I’ve found the perfect summer hat, I can now pair it with the most perfect summer dress!  Oh did I forget to mention the dress?  Well sit back and try not fall over….it’s only $8 before s&h!!!  I know, seriously don’t fall off that chair.

All that’s missing is a cocktail and a full time nanny!

Sleep, it’s always on my mind….

So I JUST had a baby.  Lil man is now 3 weeks old, wow.  I haven’t slept in like 3 weeks how the heck am I still standing?!  Haha, okay so I’ve napped in between feedings.

In the short time he’s arrived we’ve managed to survive breastfeeding, Christmas, a broken dryer,  me getting a cold, and a family wide stomach flu.  Lil man did not get sick, this I attribute to the power of prayer!  Oh, and it was our turn to host New Years eve!  Let’s just say we have amazing friends, they stayed to the end and it didn’t faze them at all.  We love them and the support they give us, this momma needed their company!

So you would think I would just sit and focus solely on my new bundle of joy now that things have settled down a bit.  I mean hubby is taking on a lot of the household chores.   Nope.  I have 2 kiddos that need my constant attention, a business to run, loads of studying to do for my next real estate exam, this blog and well so many more task.  Ah, well sleep can wait a bit longer!  Right?!

Until then I’m going to tuck my kids in, have a glass of wine, and not look at the mess hubby made in the kitchen.   Oh, but is the food gonna go bad.  Should I maybe just peek at it?  See I’m doing it again!  Haha, oh well it is what it is.  I’ll sleep at some point this year, just maybe not tonight…

 

 

Motherhood, Marriage, and all the craziness in between

Howdy come on in!   I started this blog because I’m a kookoo bird of a wife, mother, career woman, etc….   I’m just a typical gal living my life with a smile and so much randomness in my head I just have to get it out somewhere!  So on that note, welcome and allow me to further introduce myself.

I live in Texas with my super awesome hubby and our amazing kiddos.  We are a blended family, with two young adult boys and two kiddos under 4.  We just welcomed kid #4 a few weeks ago and well let’s just say we are all in “adjustment mode”.   A few years ago we purchased a Midcentury home in a historic district and little by little we are transforming it back to its former fabulousness.  I bake to keep me sane!  I have a thriving business with Younique, and I love all avenues of real estate so I’m working on getting my license.   I’m a jack of all trades, I will read and learn about absolutely anything.  Typical Sagittarius.  Most of all I try my hardest to be the best of myself that I can, and don’t pay any mind to the thoughts of others.  Yeah I’m that chick in the grocery store singing aloud to the music in my head.  Hey the party has to start one way!

My goal for this blog is to share my ideas with other kookoo mommas.  Sometimes I have some pretty good stuff to share, sometimes I don’t.   I do promise it will be positive, uplifting, and humorous.  NO DRAMA!  I hate drama.  So, let’s see what else.  Oh!  I’m currently on maternity leave from my full time J-O-B where I enter stuff into a computer thingy to compute stuff for yadda yadda…boring!  **Yawn**

So let’s get this blog started!
