Well here it goes! I've been reading quite a few blogs lately and am finding them so valuable. It's a wonderful thing that we can share our thoughts, ideas, learnings, and emotions so quickly, with people we know well, and others we don't know at all. This morning I woke up and made my son french toast, scrambled eggs, and bacon and enjoyed breakfast with him. (He enjoyed everything but the bacon...apparently I have a vegetarian baby lately as he decided that instead of eating his bacon bits, he would throw them over the high chair into our dog's waiting mouth, laughing the entire time.) I love bacon (and eat it literally 4 mornings a week, even when I'm not pregnant) and I am also the one to bring it home. My husband works part-time, and I could not survive even one day without his support (emotional, physical, mental, and financial) but I'm proud of the hard work that I do to bring home the bacon and provide a great life for us. He is there by my side every step of the way, and we love the life we are building as we grow in love for one another, and as we literally grow with the addition of a second child. We feel very blessed but there are also those days when we are just trying to figure it all out! And on those days, he's laughing, I'm crying, and then he's making me chocolate chip cookies. :)
I plan to blog about my life as Bacon Mama (I think it's a pretty great title, but then again, remember how much I love bacon, and how much I LOVE being a mama). If you love bacon, or babies, and/or trying to be the best at what you do, this is a blog you'll enjoy!
I'm learning to live on a budget, cook in a crock pot (don't worry, I rarely use bacon for dinner. I shoot for healthy and nutrious meals! Oh what a learning experience this will be!), balance my time between my career and my family, and get enough sleep so that I can survive the next day (I have the world's most wonderful child, who sleeps 12 hours every night, so don't feel too sorry for me...most of the time my lack of sleep stems from the fact that I am doing too much because I tend to forget that I am Bacon Mama, not Superwoman.) Although I love design & fashion, I probably won't blog too much about those topics, because as I mentioned, I'm learning to live on a budget, and I don't have the creative juices or energy to making something out of nothing. Maybe someday I will!
That's all for today, so here's to the weekend! I would close this first blog post with "Cheers!" because I ordinarily love wine, beer, and cocktails of any kind, and it's the weekend so we should all be enjoying the glass of our choice after a hard week of work, but since I'm pregnant and not even allowed to have three sips of red wine with dinner (according to my loving & diligent husband,) alcohol is not my favorite topic lately. :)
