Thanks for checking out my page! I promise to update it as often as I can. With a little baby girl... it won't be as often as I like... But I'll do my best! -Pinky Swear.
9AM TO 2PM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY
Hi! I'm Jana. And I feel like I am just starting to figure this "life" thing out. As a mother of a one year old girl my world has changed. I still love finding great deals, enjoying wonderful restuarants, and catching a fun happy hour with friends…but I'd skip it all for a smooch & snugglefest with my little lady!
I love an intense film, crave music, and recently (and finally) got back to running. Here's hoping these Mommy lbs melt away.
I work and play a little too much. I'm flawed and BLESSED. No doubt about it.
But yes, in my life before becoming a Mom, I have travelled and lived in many places. I am a southern girl by birth and in my heart. Originally from Alabama I have lived in VA, NC, GA, MO, KS, IN, TN, SC, and FL. I married a Michigan man... GO BLUE! I went to UNC...GO HEELS! And grew up all Bama... ROLL TIDE! I'm SEC football, ACC basketball... and always prefer College sports to Pro Sports. And I know enough about them all to be dangerous.
I am plugged into pop culture like a champ! Whether its celebrity gossip, hot trends in fashion and make up, or current events...I'm your girl. Oh, and I'm a total wine-o! I love a great wine list.
This photo is ALL OVER my FB feed today...
What do you think of it? Some of the things I've heard or read:
She must have a nanny...
Making other Mom's jealous...
Good for her...
This one photo has been one of the most "commented" on photos I have ever posted. Why so much passion?
Well, here is my take.
My first word is B*TCH (because I am jealous). She looks AMAZING!
My second word is LUCKY! Because she finds the time to devote to herself. Bravo! Whether it is a nanny, a chef, a Grandmom, a devoted hubby, Day Care, or just herself... she finds the time to make herself a priority. Something all us Mommy's should do (but rarely achieve.)
And then the "FB comment claws" come out... you see other people comment about, I'd rather spend that time with my kids. I make my kids the priority not myself, etc... Listen, no one can walk in your shoes...or my shoes.
Whether you are a stay at home Mom or you work all day... what you decide to do with your time is up to you. I would love to find the time to do it all. Work, work out, spend quality time with kids, hubby, friends, and the ever elusive sleep. I chose to handle what I can, when I can. I can get to the gym once or twice a week... but not he amount of time it would take to look like that. Again...Wow, Maria!
So, when I look at this photo I won't see the "WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE?" title... but I will see "YOU CAN DO IT!"... one day. Maybe even today.
