Blog Taking First Flight & Amazon Card Giveaway

 I have been on a looooong hiatus from blogging and decided to go in a different direction from my prior blog. I wasn't really committed to regular updates and finding myself with writers block way too often while pursuing my cosmetology career and the blog was really suffering from my dilettante ways.
 Then the baby happened.
 Wow. I'm a third time mom at 44 years old now, almost a month from being 45 when he arrives.
 One day I'm dreaming about having an empty nest and focusing on my career goals, the next day I'm starting over from the delivery room. After the dna profile results came back without the major hereditary issue worries, minus one very serious urea disease that I apparently carry, we've been relieved enough to plan our budget around our new baby and prepare for his needs. Thank goodness it's a boy! I love my daughters but I'm ready for a son, knowwhatImean? :D
 SO,
 With a new outlook comes a new blog, a different "lifestyle" to consider writing about and I hope it's well received as I'm sure there are other moms in my situation. I'll still talk about dogs and hair and kids *and* now my pregnancy, my prenatal diabetes struggle and trying to not be identified as only "Mommy" as life still has a lot of interests outside of just one label, right?




Let's celebrate with a GIVEAWAY! 
$10 Amazon Card to put toward your wish list.
I appreciate your reading and helping my fledgling blog along.
