- Just Being Priss
- Hi everyone, thank you for visiting my blog! Let me tell you a bit about myself. First I'm a wife then a mother of two (a 5 & 1yr old). I love to share my experiences, thoughts, ideas, questions really just about everything, lol! I want to be a positive motivation by sharing what I go through. You never know what I'll post, believe me, sometimes I blow my own mind. Having children = never a dull moment. Through it all I try to take one day at time remembering to keep breathing through it all :)

On to my goals though. As far as last weeks goals; I didn't workout twice nor clip my coupons but we did get the kids wish list completed. I took the tree out Monday and decorated it (it has no lights but hopefully they will be on this weekend). I looked at Pinterest and there are some things I would like to do with the kids for the holidays and other things Id like to do for decorations. This year I don't really have a theme, I just want it colorful and exciting.
This weeks goals are
1) To workout once
2) Clip and organize my coupons
Let me know what your plans are for this week or for the month. However you set your plans/ goals it's whatever works for you :)

Now when we speak about our relationships its a whole different ball game. We all want a faithful man, some of our men have more leeway then others though. As women when we speak our emotions tend to come out so our conversations don't always go the way we'd like them too. Some of us are working on that others not so much, lol. There is nothing wrong with that but don't get mad when your man speaks to you in the same manner. Helping around the house, this is a big one! Regardless of the woman's position we want more help at home and for a man to take on some of the stress we have.
Most women are Superwomen! I say most because I know some females have it very easy at home. That's going to have to be a different post! When I speak on stress we don't want are men stressed out but as a female are always thinking of our to-do list. Men, they can come home eat, sit, watch TV, go to bed and be ok. So I'm going to speak for me now; I want to have equal responsibilities. This may mean to have a schedule so we can be on the same page and no one does more then the other. If you stay at home or not most women do more.
Marriage/ Relationship. We want attention! Turn the tv off, put your phone/remote down, sit next to me look at me and lets talk. Hey when kids are around most of the time your conversation will be rushed. If you have kids, you know what I'm talking about. There will be a kid getting into something, looking/ bothering the other one, not sharing, making a mess, etc etc, no need to go on and on. Wait maybe that's just my household, lol.
Regardless of your age, financial status, relationship status, household status it's not always greener on the other side. We get fed up with our spouses and most people now a days look towards divorce, and it's not always the answer. The women that inspired this post aren't the same age, they have different ethnicity and careers. Don't ever think no one understands you or don't let your man think you are asking for too much. There are so many women that are want the same thing, the solution; find a man that respects and loves you and pick your battles :)

It's October 1st and I'm ready to get back to me. I haven't focused on me in a while due to some personal issues & excuses! But, no more. I have a weight goal in mind & a few other goals I need to bring to the for front. With the New Year right around the corner it's time to get started. So with that said lets go.

* a divinely given talent or blessing
* the condition or fact of being favored by someone
Hope- a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen
Faith- complete trust or confidence in someone or something
Mercy- compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm
I try not to use the word Hope as much as I can because I feel I should have more Faith then anything. I know we have our own personally relationships with God but I've never meet someone that is so far left field. At first I didn't know how to digest it, I was so mind blown. There are times I get hit with something that truly boggles my mind and speaking with this person gave me a boggling moment. When can be a Holy Roller or churchy but sometimes sharing your story is a blessing in it self. I don't consider myself churchy but sometimes just breaking it down and being real will create a greater impact then giving scriptures. Knowing the bible is amazing but I don't know it. I can't quote the bible to save my life. Do I need to study so I can learn, yeah I do. But sometimes you just need to listen. Don't listen to judge but listen to help. Don't go around saying,"I'm a Christian." but don't act like it. I'm far from perfect but everyday is a new day and you can only try. Nothing in life is easy and being a Christian is no different!
This week I would like to accomplish the below;
1) Pack up BudBud's pants to give away
2) Walk once this week
3) Make it to church on Sunday
Every month I want myself or us as a family to be a blessing. This week we accomplished it as a family and I did my part by being me.

1) Continue walking this week.
2) Go through BudBud's old clothes to pack them up and give away. (being a blessing)
1) Learn all feats on my social media accounts.
2) Write twice a week.
3) Go to church every Sunday. (Not allowing any distraction to take over our emotions)
I try not to overwhelm my plate especially with the weekly goals so I prioritize. Little BudBud doesn't always help getting goals accomplished so we take one day at a time.

Personally watching the news isn't always my cup of tea. They are their to pass information along but most of the time I seem to start worrying about something new! Is this only me? With phones now you don't need the news, FB can replace news. With apps you can check your weather, traffic, have music and so on. ( too many things to name)
Now, with all that we have do you feel as if we are losing touch with society? I don't need to call anyone I can just look at FB, to learn more about them you can follow them on Instagram or Pintrest. I don't remember most peoples numbers or email address because there are so many others ways to get in contact with people. Are you obsessed with your phone so you can stay in "touch"? I'll say this when I don't have my phone I feel "naked", yikes, lol! I know I'm not the only one, lol, lets be honest :) Or are you ok to be out of touch so you can just enjoy life?

Are morning routines are pretty good but Mikey is getting a little slow with his wake up. He is not really morning person. He got that from me, hehe. Shhh, don't tell no one. I'm starting to become a morning person and I don't like it!
What are some of the things going on in your childs school? Do you do PTA or do you volunteer? Is your child liking school so far?

Please review his qualifications;
Very cute ;)
Oh and the best part is, he's free, yes I said FREE! His name is Makai & would love for you to come see him & give you those Grays, sorry I meant Sparkles. I don't want to be selfish and keep him all to myself, that would just be rude of me. I know you'd love some Grey in your hair! ;)

I read an article which described the realiaty of being a stay at home parent and it was amazing. When someone hears, " I'm a stay at home mom.", they automatically thinks it's peaches & cream. Guess what it's not! There are days I have everything in a babies world on my clothes and I don't want my husband getting near me. Even though he's nice about it I know I smell, lol. Staying at home is not easy and it's not for everyone but it has always been something I wanted to do. No, we don't have everything but we have what we need. We don't have a flat screen tv, cable, laptop, name brand items or even two cars but we have two children that get to see their parents more than 2 hrs a day. Our toddler gets a home cooked meal and gets an at home education. (He's not in school yet but he can still learn) We talk about moments with our children being priceless but what about being the parent? The sacrifices we make should also be viewed as priceless. I price match, coupon & I'm constantly on the look out for sales to get everything we need. Yes, I may have to stay up late or get up early to complete my task but I do it so I can be with my children. We make the decision to be selfless to create what we see in our eyes as precious/priceless memories & build a strong bond with our children! Kudos to all families that make the choice to have a stay at home parent!!!

It's 2014! No, I didn't accomplish everything I wanted to in 2013 but it's ok. I'm human (imperfect)! I did begun my decluttering which I'm proud of. New year so new goals. With one child starting to crawl/walk and another one going to start Kindergarten this August I know it's going to be an exciting year. My "babies" make my world go round. I'm not ready for these changes but I haven't created the anti-growth pill so I don't have many options here.
I enjoy seeing the growth, maturity, & independence they both gain daily but as any parent I don't want them to grow up. It saddens me as I see this but I also have a great sense of accomplishment. Being a stay at home mom is no walk in the park as there are no sick or play hooky days. But, the bonding you create with your children are priceless and I wouldn't trade it for nothing :)
