Our Valentine’s Day Tradition

Our Valentine’s Day Tradition

Marriage, On My Mind 0

Ever since we first started dating, I made it clear to the Hubs that just because we were together, that didn’t automatically make me his Valentine. Now, we’ve never held Valentine’s Day in high regards, as I’d much rather celebrate love everyday as opposed to one manufactured date, but the Hubs is a bit of a romantic and always likes to ask me anyways. We don’t do anything in particular… Read more »

Closing This Chapter

On My Mind 5

This past year, and even before that if I’m honest, I have really lost my love for book blogging and reviewing. It was more of a job or obligation than a fun hobby. After doing it for a few years, I think I’m just done with the idea altogether. I never felt like I was very creative in having original bookish content and it all came down to reviews and… Read more »

Don’t Just Save. Live!

Don’t Just Save. Live!

On My Mind 0

One thing that is always on my mind: Money Being an adult means thinking about money. Making money. Saving money. And of course, spending money. I’m naturally a frugal person, always looking for the best deal, not buying things (for the most part) unless they’re on sale, and not really taking any time out to spoil myself. This is especially true after I became a mother, as basically all that… Read more »

My Lowest Point…So Far

My Lowest Point…So Far

On My Mind 4

As you might have noticed, I’ve been a little bit absent on the blog and on social media lately. Things have been very depressing and emotional for me lately and honestly, I’ve been feeling all kinds of lost and dejected. I’m at a point in my life where I don’t know what I’m doing or where I’m going and that’s seriously affected my state of mind. So, I’m sure I… 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 »

Let’s Discuss: The Chase

Let’s Discuss: The Chase

Discussions 5

You know what I miss? The chase. I miss reading a book where the actual focus is on a guy chasing after a girl he likes. And I’m not talking about the tried-and-true plot outline that practically every romance author goes for now. I miss the dating, the fun and excitement, the memories, and the good times. Is this something that people don’t care for in books nowadays? I can… Read more »

Vi Gets Fit: Week 1 & 2

Vi Gets Fit: Week 1 & 2

On My Mind 0

So, my biggest resolution for 2015 is to finally lose all that baby weight. I want to look and feel good about myself again, so I need to focus on myself more. The whole process really started at the beginning of the year. I basically gave up soda altogether. Cold turkey! That surprised me most of all because I was drinking a can of soda like every day for the… Read more »

I’m pretty much at… Read more »

7 Years Strong!

7 Years Strong!

Marriage, On My Mind 6

7 years ago I was waiting impatiently to get married to the best man I’ve ever known. Who knew we would make it through all the drama, surprises, and fun to get to where we are today. And we’re not even close to being done. Thank you for showing me that there are still good men out there. For all that you do, and so much more, I love you…. Read more »

Coming to Terms with Never Having a Son

Coming to Terms with Never Having a Son

On My Mind, Pregnancy, Pregnancy Diary 17

So, in case you missed the news, I announced last Saturday the results of my ultrasound appt. So, here we go… My initial reaction was “Damn! Again?!”. Really, it was. I’ll admit right from the get-go that I’ve always wanted a boy. Why, you ask? I don’t know. That’s just what I’ve always wanted. When BG1 came along, surprisingly, I welcomed her with loving arms, of course, but in the… Read more »
