I have wanted to do this blog for a long time. So I figured to start out this new little blog addition I would answer the basic "W," questions. :) But first this quote is where I decided to name the blog "Believe in Pink." It's from Audrey Hepburn, who I love and was such a classy woman.
WHO? Well, you can read somethings about me in the "about me" part there on the right. But I am a mom of one and a wife of one :) I have been married since Jan. 11, 2008 and a mom since Dec. 28, 2008. The year 2008 was obviously a big life changing year for me. I love to shop, however ever since I became a mom its like all my fashion sense went out the window! Weird, not sure how that happened. Maybe cause it's so much easier to run after my little man in sweats and my big kid's shirts. Plus if spit up, boogers, or poo get on my sweats no biggie. I am a new addict to digital scrapbooking. My family and religion is everything to me. I looove to cook, and bake. I will post some of my yummy creations for you to try if you want, and maybe some of my not so yummy creations for a laugh. :) I love playing around here on the world wide web, and finding all sorts of fun and interesting things. I am in an on going battle with the will to exercise everyday, I know I need to, its just finding the motivation. Especially if I am going to get rid of this post baby tire around my middle. I enjoy reading, nothing is better than drinking a caramel apple cider and reading a good book in sweats on the couch. I am trying to rediscover myself. Since 2008 was such a big life changing year I kinda lost myself. Everything in the past year has all been a huge blessing and a struggle at the same time. Which is the next "W" question.....
WHY? This blog is mostly for my benefit. Selfish I know, but I need it for my sanity right now. To get my thoughts out there! Not that what I have to say, or think is all that life changing or important for or to anyone else. Or that I am that clever, funny and witty that I can entertain hundreds. (but let's be honest, I can be down right hilarious sometimes...) But right now this blog is so important for me. After I got married to my sweetheart the big kid, their was the obvious change of learning to be a wife...and then 4 months later we found out I was pregnant which was another huge change. Along the way, I forgot me. What I liked, what Im interested in, how I like things etc. It also didn't help that after I gave birth to the most beautiful little boy in the world I had some serious post partum depression, anxiety and OCD issues. *GASP* Yes that's right I said it, I had and sometimes constantly struggle with my post partum depression and anxiety. Why is it that any kind of depression, or anxiety is such a taboo topic? My post partum is reason 1 for this blog. I felt so alone, and that no one understood how I was feeling until I found someone to talk to about it that knew exactly what I was going through. I hope this blog will be some place for women to find comfort, that they aren't the only ones who struggle with whatever it might be. Whether its post partum, a husband who can't seem to find a hanger or the hamper for his clothes, body image, a kiddo who just can't seem to keep their clothes on, a professor or boss that you dream about drop kicking sometimes..ANYTHING! I want this blog to be for women and moms to find a friend. Maybe to set up play dates or girl dates no husbands, boyfriends, kids allowed :) I want this blog to be a place for women to share their opinions and views. About anything and everything. Big things like politics, vaccinating or not vaccinating, social issues... and little funny things like what lipstick is best, new shoes, how Spencer Pratt is the biggest jerk ever, reality TV. Seriously EVERYTHING!
WHAT? ummm I think this kinda goes with the why part. So carrying on :)
WHEN? Right NOW!!!! And as often as I can!
WHERE? Here, at believe in pink :)
