With us leaving for our honeymoon soon and getting married even sooner...there hasn't been much time for much else-which would explain why I haven't blogged much. And is also the same reason I haven't been posting pictures (I'd hate to have anything leak for the wedding).
I've been doing a lot of fun stuff that I plan on posting about after I'm done. I'm even considering making some stuff to put on Etsy. I love that site! And I've really had fun making our wedding a DIY wedding.
So back to what I really came here to talk about. I realized that I have become a different person in the past few years of being with my love. I used to thrive off shopping and going out all the time, but now I thrive from buying Shiloh new clothes for school, and buying peojects for us to do together.
Some people really get caught up in the attention you get from being a parent, and don't really comprehend the sacrifice you must be willing to make as a parent. I never thought I'd see the day when a child's clothing meant more than a new outfit, or a haircut for myself. But that day has arrived much sooner than I ever thought.
Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love and adore being a non-bio-mom... especially to my lil guy. And I guess what I am really trying to express is how all those things that I used to "need" somehow left the spotlight of my life and I never even realized it.
I read an article on some women who are giving up shopping for a month...and act like it is hard. Okay I get it, we all are different...but seriously? If I could get paid for that I'd be rich. And my lil guy would have all the clothes he could ever possibly need...and probably a few more games/toys. I'm interested to see it start, and see what happens.
So in the month that they are not buying any sort of clothing item, or accessory or shoes...I'll be finishing up stuff ofr our wedding, making stuff for my Lil Guy's b-day party and then going on our honeymoon and buying me something pretty from Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Belguim, Luxemburg, and the Netherlands...yes. I will get something from each place. :) And a part of me wants to post that on their site. Haha. That would be fun....
So here's what we started for the Lil Guy's party. We ate dinner on the porch in the wonderful weather, and followed it with a batch of cookies. Yummmmmmm....
and Joanna has some awesome stuff going on here:
Much love to all! I'll post more of said death star after I get more wedding stuff done today!
