{Baldwin Moisturizing Lotion | Review}

A week or so ago I was contacted by Baldwin For Men and asked to do a review and giveaway! I've never been contacted to do something like that before, so after making sure it was a real company, I said sure. I'd be happy to review their product and host a giveaway!

So they sent me a bottle of their Moisturizing Lotion

{That Time I was a Hooker for Halloween | Story Time!}

I'm not going to lie folks, this was a bad judgement call on my grandparents part lol.

I'm not even sure who thought it up, maybe me. Probably me.

But lets talk about the year I was a hooker for Halloween.

{I'm a Quiter | Working Retail Sucks!}

I'm not going to lie folks, I was never too excited about going back to working retail. I hated it when I was a teenager, I hated it when I worked at Wal-Mart and K-Mart. I hated working at the gas station I worked at in 20's. I hate it. People are rude, and look at you like you're stupid if you don't know what the hell the register is doing.

{Owen's Birthday Treats!}

Can we talk about how sad I am that Owen is going to be ten already? It doesn't feel like he should be this old. It feels like he should still be a bitty baby, hanging on me all day and night. But here he is. Growing up. Too fast.

{Going Back To Work?}

Since I was a little girl, I have wanted to be a mom. On career day at school, that's what I dressed up as. When anyone asked me what I wanted to be, a mommy was always my answer. I wanted to be home with the babies, doing laundry and making dinners. I wanted to bake cookies and read stories. I wanted to clean and keep a tidy home. I essentially, wanted to be my grandmother.

{My First Attempt at Doughnuts!}

When I was little I remember my grandma frying up doughnuts for us once in a while. We all thought it was crazy that she could make her own doughnuts and they always tasted good! So the other night when I got a craving for baking and doughnuts, I went in search of a recipe.

Of course I checked Pinterest first (isn't that everyone's first stop nowadays?) and of course I found one I thought I could work with. But upon inspecting my kitchen for the yeast I bought to make Owen some Subway bread (that I never got around to doing), I found that someone had either thrown it out or decided it did not belong in my baking cabinet or on my pantry shelf where I had put it. So I had to forgo that recipe and went in search of one that didn't use yeast.

{Well That Would Have Been Easier! | 5 Things I Wish I Had With My Babies}

I have been a mama for almost fifteen years y'all. Fifteen. I have been through more 3am feedings, blow out diapers, ear infections, sleepless nights, and a few miserable hospital stays in those fifteen years. I have filled bottles with my eyes almost closed and spilled formula all over the kitchen table because I was so damn tired I couldn't focus my eyes. I don't know how I made it through those early years with Gaige. Well, yes I do, I had my grandparents to help. And along the way I learned how to make life a hell of a lot easier.
