Motherhood & Tough Lessons to Teach

These two posts written by C. Jane Kendrick are quick & powerful; Both took my breathe away while I was reading them and I loved it. As always, I hope you love them as much as I do. I believe there is a great & beautiful lesson to be learned from them.

It will be years (+ a couple more for precaution) before I begin the journey of motherhood — But I’d be lying if I said my chitlin won’t have this onesie.

I hope you’re having one of those days where you get things done that have been bugging you for weeks. I know that’s how my day is going, and it feels so good.

All my love, Bee 

All that it wanted to be

On March 20th 2011 I embarked on a new adventure. During that adventure I sailed amid many incredible sunsets, found inspiration from every fish in the sea & experienced a handful of storms that forced me to just breathe & trust the wind. In the end I met you at the perfect little dock. I am proud to say that you are far from regular and I am so glad I’ve been given the chance to be graced by your love & light. Cheers to letting the first ocean we sailed together be all that it wanted to be & here’s to many more together.

1 year down sweets! Happy birthday baby blog! And thank you, I couldn’t have a better crew.

All my love, Bailey Mikell

Life Is Made For..

I have found a new love that makes early mornings something to look forward to… Eggs over easy, wheat toast, cholula hot sauce & a good book in bed. I used to make scrambled eggs every single day after school in elementary. I wouldn’t eat them with anything except ketchup (I know, sort of gross). After a couple years I burned myself out & dodged all eggs. For some reason I woke up ready to give them another shot, and I’m glad I did. Add some coffee/tea & you’re in heaven.

I’ve decided life is made for pb&j’s & dancing your ass off in the kitchen (to this song, naturally), so that is what is on my agenda on my day off. The floor also needs to be mopped & I’ve got laundry for days. My closet will be color coated by the end of today no matter what measures I have to take to make sure of it. There are a couple sites that have great tips for the perfect closet. These are the two I’m looking to for guidance 1/2

All my love, Bee

Twice For Luck

Andy woke me up at 2:30 in the morning to tell me that our fish, Blackie Chan, has been eating the rocks in his bowl & then spitting them out. I asked him if that was some kind of joke when we got up today, and he said no. He accused me of starving Blackie – But I feed him 3 times a day. So what the hell dude? What kind of fish does that? Anyway, that was the way I started my day today.

Lately whenever water gets spilled on the floor & I step in it (which grosses me out really bad for some reason) I automatically assume someone pee’d on the floor. Why? Why do I do this? It’s not like there is a dog or a kid here? I am an odd duck.

I am going to be working on my paper tonight. It’s due on Tuesday so it’s not that my time limit is stressful, it’s the fact that I don’t have a god damn clue what I am doing. When I signed up for this class I was ready for a challenge. That is what life is about, stepping out of your comfort zone & exploring things that scare you.

Even though I know I can do this, part of me is beginning to see what I am good at and what I am not good at. Creative writing/pulling shit out of my ass is my specialty (pardon my french) – Journalism, mmm, not so much. Avoiding the things I struggle with will not get me anywhere in life. Deep down, I am simply scared to death of failing. With lots of hard work I hope to avoid that and prove myself wrong. I rubbed my buddhas belly twice today… I hope it helps.

Until this paper is done you (hopefully) will not hear from me. XOXO

The Perfect Mermaid

I’m positive Tessa Barton is one of the most talented, beautiful, breathe-taking people you’ll ever lay your eyes on. Did I mention she sings?… Listen to her cover of one of my favorite songs by Coldplay. AND, while you’re at it, go see her blog – It is outstanding. There are some people you just can’t help but stare at.

I have a feeling today is going to be a day of learning – Don’t ask me why, because I couldn’t tell you. Sometimes I just get good feelings. XOXO

Ideal/Realistic

I hope your new years kiss was as passionate as this one. This year I can proudly say mine can definitely hang with these two lovebirds. (you’re probably rolling your eyes thinking, ‘Oh well, good for you.’) I’ve never had an amazing new years kiss, so I feel this years was well deserved. Anyway, this smooch is ideal but far from realistic. Ps. Sorry for making you throw up in your mouth a little bit mom (& boyfriends siblings) I love you, XOXO

By the way, I wrote this quick like a bunny after work today because I am having serious withdrawals from ya’all. It’s a good thing that blogging doesn’t have any negative effects (not usually, at least) or I’d be trouble. I have loved hearing from you while I take this little break to get my feet on the ground (& all of our shizzad off of it). Amazing kisses, a new home, & the best readers.. What more can a girl ask for? Thank you…

So She Counts…

I’ve spent tonight watching Sister Wives (they’re from Utah… shocking) & eating some of the 30 wings I bought to-go from Wingcoop (I have a problem). As I’ve said before, I respect all walks of life. I think that humans are so incredibly interesting, we can all learn from each other. But, I am also really thankful that I am in a beautiful, happy relationship…. & not polygamist.

I’ve caught a bad case of writers block, so my posts have been lacking. I am really sorry, hopefully I can get out of this stagnant mood. The last few days have been spent marinating in the fact that I will be packing up my life here in SLC & moving to my new home in 2 weeks. It’s a mixture between absolute excitement & an eager heart with a side of heartache & nerves. This all feels natural, I think. At least I can finally do this cute idea.  I’m listening to Eminem while I sluggishly pack my gym bag. I have been awful about getting up & going, and have packed on a couple Holiday LBS, to say the least. Dear extra lovin’ on my tummy, please relocate to my ass. Thank you kindly, Me. XOXO
