Lets be Happy with who we are.

So maybe y'all hated my give-away? I understand that. It's only for some people! Just think though, if you comment on this post, you will get the picture! 

Regardless if no one wants the give-away it has done what I was hoping it would do. I've had quite a bit of traffic to my blog. So thanks EVERYONE who has stopped by! I hope maybe one of my posts helped you out or inspired you! 


I've been feeling a little torn lately about parenting. I've felt a little inadequate as a mom, maybe like I offend other mothers when I say things I've done or want to do, or that I just suck as a mom. 

I happened to be reading through my blog reading list of all the blogs I follow and Michelle at So Wonderful So Marvelous had just posted THIS. I honestly cried, laughed and puffed out my chest like Tarzan by the feel-good-feelings that were pouring out of this post. I had to share it on Facebook for all my mommy friends and now I'm posting about it. 

"We all have our own things, our gifts, and we all have our own priorities.  That they are different, doesn’t make them wrong.  We all are making the best of our collective situations, but it doesn’t mean we have to be assholes to each other. "
-Michelle at So Marvelous So Wonderful
So why do us mom's ALWAYS judge other moms and compare ourselves to them?! Half the time I feel bad when I talk about some awesome dinner/dessert I made to my other Mommy friends because  I think THEY think I'm rubbing it their face. I'm not, So why do I think they feel that way? 

Why do I think I'm a horrible person for not having a beautiful new home? Why do I feel like people are judging me for this? It's what we women do! We want to be THE supermom. We want to be the best at everything and we can't be. 

One of my favorite quotes I've found is: 

"I think we complicate things when it really is quite simple; 
Find what is that makes you happy 
and who it is that makes you happy and you're set. "

I know I'm happy. I'm happily in love with my "Sexy, short Mexican man", I love my kiddies and their names. Aidan Curtis and Annessa Michelle. I love my home (Despite my crazy B**** for a neighbor) I love my family regardless if they disagree with the life I've chosen or the choices they made, I pride myself in making homemade dinners and desserts (Sometimes I get lucky and they taste good too!), I love the few Mommy friends I've made. (N, L, J and C) I do enjoy having choosing to be thrifty and feel I've become better because of it. I don't mind the criticism I've heard along the way and the people that feel they need to talk about me behind their backs I've cut out of my life. I've chosen to have only people that make me feel good about myself around me. It's myself I have to work on now.

So the moral of this post? Lets be happy with who we are!
