Project BG3: Week 52 – And That’s a Wrap on My First Year!

Project BG3 2

Wow! So hard to believe that this is the last entry in BG3’s photo diary. The first year is practically over. Tomorrow my baby will officially be ONE YEAR OLD. Oh, Father Time, why must you be so bittersweet?! BG3 has been one heck of a wild, amazing, hilarious, frustrating, temperamental, lovable, and unique child. As difficult as this year has been, I wouldn’t change it. She pushed me to… Read more »

I Will Love You More

I Will Love You More

BG3 6

A letter to my last child… Ever since you were born, it seems like the world loves you less than the others. Because a few have come before you, your presence is like “old news” to everyone around us and it pains me to think like that, but the truth has been a nagging ache in the back of my head for quite some time now. The differences may be… Read more »

I’m Done With Medical School

I’m Done With Medical School

On My Mind 6

You read that right. As of June of this year, I officially graduated from medical school. It may have taken me a bit longer than normal, I finished in six years rather than four, but I got it done. There were so many times I wanted to quit and even now I feel like I’m not good enough for this career, but at least I can say that I actually… Read more »

I’ve been spending a lot of time reformatting the blog and just going through all my old posts and making them look better. In that process, I decided I wanted to delete a lot of old posts. Some day in the near future I want to turn my blog into a keepsake book because this blog has been such a big part of my life. With that in mind, I… Read more »

Project Vlogust: Week One Highlights

Family 0

So things have been going great so far with Project Vlogust. We actually had a lot going on during the first week of August. We celebrated my SIL’s birthday, my niece’s birthday, and the anniversary of when the Hubs and I became a couple. I took BG2 to the dentist for a check up as well. We also had some down time, good old-fashioned time at home. I’m really liking… Read more »

Book Review: Blackmailed by the Hero by Julie Particka

Book Review: Blackmailed by the Hero by Julie Particka

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: A bit mild-mannered, but still entertaining. In My Opinion: Add to cart! On a scale from 1-10 on the Brazen score, this book would get a firm 5. I liked it enough, but there wasn’t anything that made me hate or love it. It was just okay. It’s not a bad second-chance love story and I liked when Vicky and Dante were together, so it’s worth a read…. Read more »

Things have been moving along in terms of her birthday party. Everything is planned out, I just get to get everything, which I’ll do next week. Even though we all know first birthday parties are the adults, not the child, I’m still trying to make it the best for her. She’s been doing good in the pack n play so far. Of course, as soon as she’s up, she wants… Read more »
