Questions Answered {part 2}

I thought I'd wrap up the questions today, if you missed part 1 you can read it here.

1. How many more children do you want? Would I ever adopt?

Easy, 1. When I was pregnant with Miss M I wanted 3, then I actually had to give birth and take care of a very big {cute} cry baby. 
Now, I just want 1 more. Barely.
I don't know if I would ever adopt, just because it sooooo expensive and such a long process.
Honestly, probably not. I can barely mother my own flesh and blood and I really don't see myself as qualified to help a child in need. 




2.  How often do you treat yourself? Is it hard to pass on sweets/munchies/etc? Are you a coffee person? What kind/how do you like it?

I treat myself about 2x a week, usually to a meal out. I eat salad everyday for lunch, but I let myself eat out with a friend or my Mom one of those days. I would say it's become easier and easier to pass on those sweets. {except for that time someone had an entire bag of Hersey Kisses here, oops} I would say I'm good at not buying the crap, I can resist it at the store which is the biggest battle. Come 8pm you probably won't drive to the store if you don't have any :)

I adore coffee, like for real. I never gave it up while I was pregnancy or nursing. I'm sorry, but I was already losing my damn mind I just couldn't do it!

haha, compete with that hotmess in the morning, lucky lucky Oliver!

I have a Keruig, I like regular coffee with sugar free vanilla creamer and 1 splenda.
From Starbucks I got a Soy Chai Tea Latte, that shit is gooooooood.

3. Do you have a ton of friends or more a handful of CLOSE friends?

Friends, this is a hard one. I've always been pretty outgoing and had a lot of different friends. I moved to Texas right before high school {from Ohio} and it was a hard transition.
I'm still friends with one girl from high school, but most of my BFF'S are a result of my changing life.
After I had Miss M I was totally lonely, there was nobody with kids around me. I joined a Mommy group, I met some weird and some wonderful people.
This is my BFF Amber. {With our New Years headbands I made!}


Her daughter Kaylee and Madison are like best friends, they are so damn cute together. I die. Plus Kaylee is a genius {like SO SMART!} so I always hope it's rubbing off on Miss M when they play together :)

Amber and I are like sisters separated at birth, so much in common.



This is Andrea. I met her online and we have the CRAZIEST connections to each other!
1. We gave birth a day apart, by the same doctor, at the same hospital. {We meet after the kids were born}
2. I actually went to high school with her husband {Whom she met on Match.com so don't give up Nancy Clue}
3. Apparently she's friends with one of my husbands ex-girlfriends and we totally saw her at a party and Oliver didn't even tell me until after we left. Not that I care, just curious who he dated before he found me, perfection :)
4. Through Facebook we have found many more connections, but I think we are all separated by 2 people on there. It's a little freaky.

Anyways, we have the best time when we get together and they are both so down to earth and I never feel that weird competition I sometimes feel with other women. 
I've actually meet a lot of people online whom I feel a kinship with now.


This was me yesterday having a mini Clomid breakdown at school.
{Yes I took a picture, I AM a blogger and I love me some Instagram}
I TOTALLY forgot about arranging to have Miss M picked up from preschool and I couldn't find anyone to do it and I couldn't leave school because I had a test.
The damn Clomid just makes me so unstable, i just could not stop crying! 
Anyways, my point is that so many people offered to help me out and were so sweet I think I started crying more.
I love y'all.


4. Are you more of a family person?Are you getting a full time job after you graduate next month? What will Madison do (daycare, preschool, etc)?

I would say I am a family person, my Mom is freaking awesome. My sister is pretty cool, even if she is only 24. My brothers are just ok, they don't come around much :) My Dad is the best Papa ever. Other than that most of my family lives in Indiana and Maryland.

I do plan on getting a full time job, I can't WAIT to go back to work. That may sound crazy to some of you, but honestly I DO NOT LIKE STAYING HOME AT ALL. I had my turn, it was fun while it lasted, but this lady is ready to have a career, make some money, and start the next chapter in my life. 
I don't know if you noticed, but I hate being bored. Rarely will you catch me sitting around doing nothing.

Miss M will continue to go to preschool 3x a week and the rest of the time my Mother In Law has offered to watch her.
For all you single ladies out there, here is the best tip I can give you.
MARRY AN ONLY CHILD
My MIL is amazing, she helps us out so much with Madison and running errands for us. She even drives out of her way to bring Miss M to me at the gym because I don't have time to make it home from school in time.


 
I tried to find a good picture of her because it's FREAKY how much Miss M looks like her! 
Anyways, never would of made it through school with out her!

Ok, well I thought I was going to wrap them all up today, but this post is getting a little long and wordy. I'm more about pretty pictures and less words :) 

Happy Thursday!

  1. I don't think it's fair that it cost so much money to adopt. Children need homes and just because you can't afford adoption doesn't mean you can't afford children. I would love to adopt more special needs children.

    When I was growing up all my best friends moved away a few year after we met. So now I have a hard time with friends. I have plenty of 'friends' but my true best friend is my hubby. He's the only one that knows the real me.

  2. Hahaha - match.com FTW! And I will make sure to add "only child" to my dating screening. That is something that I never would have even thought about before... but it makes sense. Glad Little Miss didn't get left at school and I completely understand the panic of "I'm stuck here and have no one." It's scary. Keep kicking ass, ladyfriend!

  8. I am an only child so I guess my husband is lucky:)

    But I definitely..alot of the time, wish I had married an only child as well, for several reasons lol...

  11. I know what you mean about babies. We wanted 4. And then had the first who ate every 2 hours the first year and didn't sleep through the night until he was at least 3. We had 1 more, who was a complete angel child. Thank goodness!! I love them more than life itself but they are something else.

    My In-Laws are WONDERFUL too. Such a blessing to have them to help! I'm so thankful I and my kiddos have such a great relationship with them.

    Love seeing the candid photos. Hang in there. It will get better!

  15. I love that I am not the only one who loved her kids like crazy and HATED being at home all day. I am a much better, happier person now that I am working full time :). Also I married a man from a family of four kids but... he is the only one who has stayed in the same town as his Mom and Dad. So it is like being an only child. I love my in-laws they are so helpful and awesome!

  16. Hey there, new to the blog... moma L sent me :)

    Noticed you're going through some fertility issues - so sorry! I had a luteal phase defect too and was on clomid for five horrific months. That stuff made me crazy!

    I finally decided to go the holistic route after a year and half of testing and drugs and still no baby. So I started seeing an acupuncturist AND started taking vitamine b6. 2.5 monts later, two lines on the pregnancy test.

    Just thought I'd pass along incase it might help.
