beautiful mess

Some A lot people always make their life seem to be their perfect fairy tale.

Posting pictures on instagram, facebook, tweets, blogs about how great their life it, I mean who wants to read the sad, depressing, life complaining status. And lets be honest everyone does it, even me.

But it's okay to realize that your life is a mess sometimes but the mess of a situation turns into a beautiful story later. Learning from mistakes, making you a stronger person or growing closer to God and your loved ones. 

Everyone always says how perfect of a baby Mason is, and how he is smiling(don't get me wrong, I LOVE his contentment!) but he does cry too! Who likes to get a picture of it? Well I finally decided to get one from a video sent to me on Friday when he wasn't feeling good. 

Somehow the sounds of his sweet cry made my heart break but also made me smile, yes I said it, SMILE, by him crying it helps his lungs it also helps tell us something is wrong, and when he is crying ALL day something is definitely wrong. Took him in and he is on his 2nd ear infection. 

Also, this is another huge step for me but I have been saying I wanted to lose weight, we bought YMCA passes awhile ago, and nothing has motivated me. Well tonight my friend Megan wanted me to go with, I had 4 hours of sleep and huge headache, I did NOT want to go. However she got me to go and I felt great. When I got home I stepped on the scale and this is what I saw....

I have gained 20 pounds since I had Mason, well after seeing this it made me mad. But it also made me realize that I need to push myself if I want to be happy again about my body size. 

Sometimes life isn't perfect, it doesn't go the way you want, and you definitely don't get dealt the best hand of cards everyday, but it's what you make of it that matters.

a little bit of vintage

Day dreaming again but let's be honest though, who doesn't day dream, What should the theme of our kitchen be? is the topic that is on my mind today. 

After talking to Nola(Matt's sister-in-law) and telling her I wanted a vintage feeling in one room she gave me the idea of the blue mason jar and going off of that. I LOVED it instantly! 

This was 3 days before our family Christmas with the Speiser side. 

We got to Christmas and I opened our gift from Nic and Nola and it was blue mason jars!!! Then we continue opening and both Nola and I got these awesome candles! 

I decided to go to Pinterest to find some ideas on what to do, needless to say I found LOTS of ideas! 

I am so excited for the rest of my ideas to become creations!
