Yesterday, I participated in the Women’s March Sacramento. This was my second year participating and it is hard to express how empowering and uplifting it is to participate. When I’m marching, in addition to reading the creative signs of others, … Continue reading
Well friends, one thing I can say for certain: 2017 was not my best year for blogging! To say that I blogged irregularly would be an understatement. But that is okay. I’ve had a lot on my plate and accomplished … Continue reading
As of yesterday, we officially have a kindergartner! It is crazy how fast time flies. When it comes to parenting, it is no joke! We’re lucky to have a choice of awesome schools in our neighborhood. We ultimately chose one … Continue reading
Let’s not spend time talking about how long it’s been since I’ve posted…a while sums it up. But 2017 so far has seen big changes. So far, biggest of all has been my birthday gift to myself this year: finishing … Continue reading
I know that like many people, I am very excited to put 2016 in the rear-view mirror. My favorite descriptor of this year so far? “Poop-flavored trash fire.” And I’ll never stop laughing at it. For all of the crap … Continue reading
Tonight is the eve of the first day of the quarter. It has been a long (thanks to the quarter system), crazy summer. This was my first summer in my current position at work and I have to say, the … Continue reading
I haven’t blogged in a while but the recent events in the national news are weighing heavy on my heart. The divide that is growing in our country is turning violent. Our love, need, demand for guns combined with our … Continue reading
A little over a week ago the majority of my graduate school cohort and I celebrated our commencement. For some in our cohort it was the culmination of all their hard work. For others like me, it was recognition for … Continue reading
For Gabriel’s fourth birthday I decided to take a break from party planning and plan a trip to Disneyland instead. I figured this age is still young enough to enjoy all of the magic of the parks and old enough … Continue reading
Happy (almost) new year all!
This is by far my favorite holiday of the year. Yes, I am one of those people that’s all about “new year, new me.” It’s not that I necessarily believe that everything has to change with each roll to a new year, but I do think that the closing of one year is an opportunity to reflect; on the good, the bad, what you’ve learned, and what can be changed. It is a great way to mark the passage of time.
So, I made a little list last year at the end of 2014, nothing crazy, just a few things I wanted to try and accomplish.
- Starting with the most important, I transitioned to my natural hair! It was a long-time coming but so far, so good. I’ve learned lots, but my journey is still beginning. Onward to 2016!
- We were able to successfully rid our house of pacifiers, but potty training is still in-progress.
- Baby #2? Well, work, school, life, my health…heck, everything got in the way
- This child will be potty trained. By March, is my plan!
- Save money! $$$
- Finish my graduate degree. My goal is Spring (optimistic). Could be Fall (realistic).
- Baby #2. Let’s try this one again…
Those are just a few this things that I’d like to work on in 2016. I hope you all have a safe New Year’s Eve and a wonderful new year. Bring on 2016!
