June Blogging Challenge: Day 12

Day 12!

Today’s prompt for the June Blogging Challenge is 

Your favorite color

My favorite color is yellow. 

To me, yellow resembles a time in my life when I overcame a lot of darkness and came out of a deep depression. To me, the color yellow is like awakening from a nightmare. It’s radiant and electrifying. It’s happy.

It’s the person I strive to be.

Radiant.

Electrifying.

And most importantly,

happy.

June Blogging Challenge: Day 4

Ahh! Good morning, bloggers! It is Day 4 of my June Blogging Challenge!! Today’s prompt is:

SOMETHING/SOMEONE THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

This one is so easy for me! In January I gave birth to my first child, Della Rae. Being a mom makes me SO happy, so today’s prompt is a no-brainer.

Della Rae was born at 1:56pm on January 5th, 2019 at 7 lbs 10.5 oz. I gave birth via c-section (What a scary experience!). She was born with a head full of hair. This is her when we were still at the hospital:

 

This past Saturday Della turned five months old. Read The Last Five Months for more about how the last five months with my daughter has changed my life.

Della recently laughed for the VERY first time (see the above video). Until you have a child, you probably don’t truly understand how amazing small milestones like that are.

In all honesty, babies are kind of boring. For the first few months of life, they don’t do much but cry, poop, and eat, so you find yourself waiting imipatiently for them to do the next cool thing like smile, roll over, laugh, or crawl. But once they get the hang of tiny feats like that, you’re back to square one: waiting for the next cool milestone. I, of course, don’t much mind the wait. I love watching her grow and learn new things. She will be six months old next month and then the race is on! She will change SOOO much within the next six months, and I am READY for it!!

Being the mother of Miss Della Rae is the greatest pleasure of my life. Motherhood is a rush of happiness and excitement. What is something/someone that makes you happy??

June Blogging Challenge: Day 3

Hello June!! 

It’s finally starting to be warm consistently, but unfortunately the rain is causing big problems where I’m from. I live in Illinois in between the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers, and they are currently flooded so bad, quite possibly the worst they ever have! Please be thinking of my community and the farmers  as last I checked, only 35% of all crops have been planted this year due to the water standing in fields.

On a more positive note… I thought it would be fun to do a JUNE BLOGGING CHALLENGE! (You can see the challenge at the bottom of this post) I want to post a blog every day for the rest of this month, according to prompts given. I encourage you all to join as well! This is going to be fun!

Okay, so today is June 3rd, and the prompt for today is to describe what you wore in detail.

Today I am wearing some patterned leggings with a black t-shirt. The leggings have pink, orange, navy blue, green, and maroon on them, and I actually got them pretty cheap at Walmart when I was pregnant because the material was stretchy enough to fit over my big belly. To be honest, Walmart has really stepped up their clothing game. I feel no shame buying Walmart clothes, haha! The shoes I’m wearing are a cute pair of sandals (kind of like Birkenstocks) that I found at Goodwill! I’m such a bargain shopper, so don’t ever expect me to flaunt expensive name brand clothes. I’m also wearing a necklace that my fiancé’s mom got me for Mother’s Day. It has her name, birthday, birthweight and height on it. I love it soooo much!

Where do you shop for summer clothes? I’m not big on shopping online, but I think I want to try it out some more. Feel free to leave a comment with good clothing sites.
