Currently via Sometimes Sweet

Danielle from Sometimes Sweet does these simple posts from time to time. I wanted to follow suit. I think it's an awesome, fun, quick way to update.


What I'm listening to... So much 311 Pandora station. When I'm at work, it gets me in a groove & through my day. When I'm home Sade's station.

What I'm eating... Basically I've been living off of Nutella. I kid, I kid. J made some awesome chicken tacos the other night. I bought some raw apple cider vinegar last night to add to my daily vitamins. More on that later, though.

What I'm watching... Not much. My DVR is full right now. When J is in town, we don't do much TV watching...& I honestly just don't have time. I did watch the episode of Guiliana & Bill where they find out their surrogate is pregnant & basically cried myself into dehydration.

Thinking about... Serious right now? I'm a single Mama. At any given moment, I'm thinking about 28 different things simultaneously.

Loving... The motivation bug that hit me. I've been really getting back into the groove of blogging & it's awesome being back in the community of Mamas.

Anticipating... J moving into his house (circumstances have him staying at his Mom's for now). May 15th he will have it & I'm excited to help him renovate it whenever I have free weekends to drive down there.

Feeling thankful for... I've been really proud of myself lately. I know that sounds terribly conceited, but I am prideful in all that I've accomplished since Collin's Dad & I separated. I look around at my (albeit tiny) apartment & I'm just God damned proud that I'm the one responsible for all of this. Me. The roof over Collin's & my head, the food in our fridge, the occasional ice cream night. I'm doing it. Alone. I'm succeeding. By myself. And I rule! It's a great feeling knowing that you can provide for your kid & that in circumstances that are less than ideal, you can overcome.


  1. Great post; I thought you were serious about the Nutella (which I love) until I kept reading!

    1. Good Holly, I am proud of you too. Although you know I don't approve of extreme cussing (LOL). I cannot judge you. You just need to curb it some. For Collins sake.
      I Love you dearly. Read your blogs often. And of course Love anything to do with your sweet baby-Collin. Is Jacob moving into his own place in California?
      Love from Grandma

    2. Thank you....& I'm partially serious about the Nutella. ;)

    3. Thank you, Gramma. :) I know I need to cut back on the cursing. J owns a home, but his ex was living in it. He gets it back on May 15th. :)

  2. Seriously, you should be proud of yourself. I am jealous of your awesomeness! I am weak in that area and trying to work on it. I`m just curious, do you plan to try to move to Cali eventually? (Feel free to ignore the question if you don`t want to answer it, lol!)

    1. Aw, thanks Mama!!! You're totally just as awesome though. Trust me.
