{Virtual} Wednesday Wine Night: Work, Lifestyle Change, Baby Life, & Naughty Parties.

It's time for another night of wine! I surely need it! How about you? I'm sticking with Stella Rosa Rosso this week! 

If we were having wine....I'd tell you that I haven't worked since last October because my baby girl wasn't sleeping through the night and hubby and I agreed that I should stay home until she sleeps more. Seven months later and now she only wakes up once at night. It's time for me to pick up a few hours at work. I'm only going to work part time or on-call right now because that's the only way our life will function with three kids.  I really enjoyed staying home with the kids, but I feel the need to maintain my nursing skills even if it's working for a few hours.

If we were having wine....I'd tell you that I'm really struggling with my weight loss journey because life with a new baby has completely thrown me off. I'm actually looking into trying out BeachBody, but I still haven't decided yet. In the meantime, I've just been watching what I eat. I'm still working on an exercise schedule. I really want to workout in the morning, but it's really hard when I'm not getting enough rest. It'll be easier when the kids start school and I'm forced to get up. LOL. Right now, it's just a thought. In my heart, I know that someday I will meet my goal. 

If we were having wine....I'd tell you that my baby girl just turned SEVEN months! She's getting SO BIG! I can't believe! She just learned how to roll around and she's now able to sit up for a few minutes before falling over. It's really cute! She weighs 22 lbs which is heavy for her, but the Dr. said she's perfectly healthy. I'm not worried about it because I know she will grow out of it just like my boys did. She drinks about 4-5 oz of formula every few hours and I feed her one jar of baby food in the evening so she's nice and full when she goes to bed. Life is good! 

If we were having wine....I'd tell you that it feels like I've been going to a party almost every weekend! I love it! It keeps us busy and when it's a kids party the kids are really exhausted by the end of the day. SCORE! This past Friday I went to an adult birthday party with my hubby and it was nice getting out! On Saturday, I went to a Naughty Girl Party and it was wild! Can't go wrong with that kind of party! LOL. 
How is everything going with you? Have you ever been to a Naughty Girl Party? Does it seems like their are tons of people born in July? 

CHEERS TO YOU! Hope you're having a great evening!

{Virtual} Wednesday Wine Night

I've read a few posts about virtual coffee dates on other blogs and I wanted to change it up a bit and call it Wednesday Wine Night! Let's call it a night out between friends, sharing a glass of wine, and catching up on life! Same idea. Different title. Plus, I LOVE wine! 

Tonight, I'm enjoying a glass of Stella Rosa Rosso. YUM.  So pull out your favorite glass of wine and enjoy!

If we were having wine tonight....I'd tell you that I'm exhausted and it feels good to talk about how tired I am because sometimes you just have to let those feelings out! My baby girl likes to go to bed between 12-1am and she wakes up once at night! It could be worse and it has been worse. I'm so glad the kids are out of school because I can sleep in, but WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WHEN THEY START SCHOOL? I needed this glass of wine. WHINE....Get it? I crack myself up sometimes....

If we were having wine tonight....I'd tell you that even though I am exhausted that I LOVE BEING A NEW MOM again. Yes, I'm tired, Yes, I'm stressed out. Yes, I'm overwhelmed. But, it's all part of the process because I felt this way with my two boys and I adjusted and I got over it. I just need to figure out when I'm going to clean my house, focus on my computer work, and find the time to go to the gym. Everything is in shambles right now. Sometimes writing a schedule for myself works. I'm going to have to work on that soon. 

If we were having wine tonight...I'd tell you that I started watching Orange is the New Black last week, I finished it today, and it's REALLY good! Have you seen it? It's super raunchy, but I love the story line. Maybe it's the psychology behind it. I should have been a psychologist...if you're into criminals (well, not "into" them), and curious about life in prison, but in a comedic sort of way. This is for you. WARNING: Just make sure that the kids aren't in the same room. Unless, you want to have to explain stuff to them. LOL. I can't wait for season 3!

If we were having wine tonight....I'd tell you that we just came back from visiting family from Idaho and I have so much to tell you! It's not all potatoes out there! LOL. We only stayed for a few days and we plan on going back again. Soon I hope. There's so much to do out there! We also plan on going to Vegas next month and I can't wait! 

Well friends! It's time to end the night! Hubby is almost home from work and the baby is calling! Cheers to you and I can't wait for another Wednesday Wine Night!

Life Goes On....

I have been SO SICK these past few weeks. I can't believe it. I'm about 90% better  now with a cough and an occasional sore throat.  I hope it goes away soon. I hate taking medicine, but it is what is getting me by right now. The kids are still in school. I still have to pick up and drop off the kids from school. I still have to take the boys to swim practice. I still have a new baby that doesn't sleep. Life goes on....
I EVEN had a CANCER SCARE! Can you believe it?! I found a HUGE MASS the size of a baseball between my breasts. I had a xray, an ultrasound, and a CT Scan to find out what it was. It turns out it is calcium build up and I've had it since I was a child. For some reason, it has gotten really big and I am NOW just noticing it. The doctor said there's nothing I can do about it. If I want to remove it, it would be considered a cosmetic procedure and insurance doesn't cover that. I'm just REALLY HAPPY that it's NOTHING serious!!! I was jumping for joy! Thank you GOD!! I am not ready to go yet! Going through this scare has taught me alot about myself. I've also had a small preview of what someone that has been diagnosed with cancer goes through when they are first  diagnosed. My heart goes out to all of you that have gone through it. 
Before I forget! I do have a good friend (Love you Tiffany!) that is in remission from breast cancer and is very active in raising funds for cancer! Here are a few places that she has suggested you can donate to or you can join their events to help raise funds for cancer too! 

Relay For Life: Tiffany Martin's Page (The event had already planned, but donations are always welcomed. Plans are already set for 2015!)

Cast Out Cancer: Fishing for the Cure (May 31st, 2014 in Hemet, Ca) (Facebook Page)

I hope you all had an amazing Mother's Day!! HAPPY (Belated) MOTHER'S DAY to all the Moms that fit this description.....yes, I am a HUGE NERD.

I hope I can get back into a routine soon. I focused on my house last week. After being sick and having a scare everything fell apart. Including my emotions!  Stay tuned because I went to a BLOG CONFERENCE a few weeks ago and I want to tell you ALL ABOUT IT! I even have a pretty cool giveaway for you! 

Any tips of how to get rid of this cold? Have you ever had a cancer scare? How did you deal with it?
