Fridays are my day off. I usually spend them at home with Hudson, and when he is content and/or sleeping I get to have "me time". There's always something to do like dishes, laundry, my nails...etc. I don't ever sit in front of the t.v. when i'm by myself. I will have the t.v. on and follow episodes while i'm running around our apartment. I get bored, and my mind starts racing with things I could be doing.
I guess I can be pretty annoying that way, but I have always loved to be productive when I have the time, and even more so that I have a baby to toggle in the mixture of it all. The only time I allow myself to sit down is when I'm feeding Hudson.
One of my good friends at work does a lot of crafting, and I have always envied her for taking the time to make homemade decor for her family to enjoy. So I started researching and decided to start projects of my own. I have been experimenting with putting pictures I have taken onto canvases. It is very simple crafting, but it has given me so much inspiration to take on other projects. I think now that I have this whole raising-a-baby thing down (kinda!), I feel it is time to move on and better myself.
I want to be a mom and wife that is creative and skilled in areas that are visually (and tastefully) appealing for my family. As i'm sitting here writing, I am using our crock pot for the first time and have a delicious smelling pot roast slow cooking for Ben and me to have when he gets home from work. "Doing it myself" has given me so many ideas that I can't wait to try out.
Pinterest.com has definitely had 99.9% to do with all this motivation I have for these things. That site is incredible.
Cheers to the new season!

This is my new blog. I decided to start recording my everyday moments through this blog that has been sitting here not being used for about 3 years. I once just signed up for this, probably just to snoop through someone else's blog but this time around, I am going to use this to organize my thoughts, and pictures.
These days, my head is full of such important memories being made by my husband, and the new addition to our little family. I find myself constantly thinking about what I am going to forget, and I don't want to forget a single thing. Ben and I both work full time, so we have to take Hudson to daycare 4 days a week. I have definitely had to become numb to the fact that I can't be with my baby whenever I feel like it. It is extremely hard, but I love my job, and work with my best friends, so it KINDA makes up for it. I have also grown an intense interest in crafting, which is going to be a huge part of this blog. I also have always enjoyed photography, designing, and wise quotes I find randomly.
My husband, Ben, and I have been married almost a year next month. He puts a smile on my face, and makes me incredibly happy. We just welcomed, Hudson, our baby boy who holds the key to both our hearts. Hudson turned 4 months last week and is growing up so fast. Every smile and coo he makes melts my soul, and makes me realize why I was put on this earth.
I don't care if I am the only one who ever reads this blog, because it is something I have decided to do for myself so I don't go crazy within myself :)
