Finally stepping into the blogging world...

For years I have kept up with different blogs, mainly my sisters, but I thought it would be time to finally try it myslef and see how I liked it. So this is it!

"The only drug I need" refers to my family. I have a beautiful family at home, My husband of two years (this coming Tuesday) and sweet sweet baby Quinn who will be 7 months next week. I also have a amazing family beyond that. Two sisters who are my best buddies and awesome parents. We are very close and life just wouldnt be what it is without them.

This is my baby girl!! This was the first and only time she has been in the big girl bath. Normally we give her a bath in the sink, but she has been splashing so much. We then decided to move her to the bath tub upstairs. We bought toys and his new cool mat, but the first time in it she fell over and hit her head (not too hard) on the side of the tub. Ever since then, it has been back in the sink.... we will get there eventually, just maybe when she is more stable.

I work full time and I have horrible hours. I know I shouldnt complain because I was luck to find a job anyway. I was laid off when I was two months pregnant. The company I worked for relocated to two locations: Raleigh, NC and Dallas, TX. Seeing we just purchased a house, trying to sell it was not the greatest idea so I was out of a job. I had a hard time finding a job at first and eventually I was showing in the belly region. I just hated even having to worry about finding a job. My husband was great and worked really hard so I could stay at home. Once I had Quinn though, I saw that we really needed two incomes so I started looking when she was about 5 weeks old. I was hired on to work 10:45am-7:00pm. I was fine with that, I knew it was gonna be hard but didnt realize how hard! I feel like I get no time with my family. Jeremy, my husband, gets up in the morning and is usually gone by 8 or 9. I get up at 7am so that when Quinn gets up I get to hang out with her till I go to work. By the time I get home I feed her and then she is tired again and ready for bed :( Not to mention, it is impossible to get ANYTHING done. I think that is a problem with any full time working mom though. We are surviving though and I am very greatful to have a job and have one that is so close to my house.
I have been trying to lose this baby weight and it seems to be some stubborn stubborn fat.... I know that it took 9 months it on but its been 7 months already and I just wish it would go away!! My hours dont alow me to join a gym or work out much. I guess I could get up at 5:30 am and do it but who am i kidding.... it wouldnt happen for very long. I try to walk and now that the weather is getting warmer that will be easier. I may eventually even run! But for now, I just need something to get me back into m jeans I was wearing before this pregnany. I dont have much, maybe 15 lbs to do that. Regular dieting just isnt doing the trick, I eat healthy already. I decided to try this HCG diet. I actaully stated today. I am doing these drops that you put under your tongue three times a day. We will see how it goes. So far everyone that I have know that has done it has had great results. My husband and two if my friends started it today also so that will be great support. The first two days consists of eat any fatty foods you can while doing the drops. There is a reason for this, i read it online, i just dont remember exactly what it was. I thought this part would be more fun but it is hard finding fatty foods to eat. We went and used a gift card we had at BC's Kitchen in Lake St. Louis. I had a french dip and fries but then I wasnt hungry for the rest of the day. We made burges and salad later. I pretty much made myself eat them.... tomorrow I will definitely be getting some QT taquitos though, hungry or not. I am hoping this diet works. I know that this may just be another diet that comes and goes but honestly I will do just about anything right now to fit into my jeans. I cant afford to buy new ones and I just dont want to..... so if this si something that will help me do that, I will take it. We will see how it works!!!!!


  1. Yay!!!!!! You started a blog! That is so much fun :) I love the pic of Quinn in the bath, she looks so cute. We gave the little munchkin her first big girl bath on Saturday night. Have you tried putting her infant tub inside the bathtub? We did that with A forever because the bathtub at the villa was so gross. It was fun giving her a big girl bath at the new place... she loved it! I am excited you started a blog... maybe now I can keep up with what is going on since you work so much :( Love you!!

  2. Hey there, bloggy friend! I am your second follower. I think you look takes forever for that baby weight to come off. It took me two years!! Looking forward to reading more of your blog!
