One of my favorite things to do is cook up some good food to make people happy with. The more the merrier, I love to feed everyone. I have plenty of recipes I’ve used over the years, but it never fails when dinner time rolls around- I draw blanks. I constantly feel like I make the same thing over and over, so I scour Pinterest for the best recipes only to realize I need to pick up 7+ items for the dish I picked and quite frankly, half the time I’m too lazy to even want to go. So this evening I’m looking through my fridge and find tons of squash I picked up and cooked up some of this
David and I have been together for 5 years. I’d say the last two, I’ve been pretty anxious to get married – or at least become engaged. I’m sure it got annoying af hearing me whine about my ringlessness, but apparently he loves me enough to have actually put a ring on it (ugly cry face). He proposed to me in front of the dancing waters in Vegas with all of our closest friends and family there- y’all I cried! I had been waiting for that moment for so long. It didn’t even phase me that David was so nervous that he blurted out “dude” after “will you marry me?” Hahahaha…yes, that’s right..his words were “will you marry me dude?” I held my laugh back because he was obviously baring scorching red cheeks of nervousness and embarrassment. He caught himself after and just repeated “will you marry me?” <3 How could I say no to that. He is the sweetest, most soft-hearted hard-headed ball of excellence I’ve ever met and I love him to death. He’ll always be MY dude, pun intended ♥
So…I guess it’s only appropriate to use my very first blog post as an introductory one. It’s 1:19 AM and I can’t sleep. I keep blaming the time change but let’s be real, I adjusted days ago, I just keep using it as an excuse to justify staying up so late and being inevitably miserably bitchy the next morning. I’ll regret not getting my schedule back in check when my oldest goes back to school on Monday, but I do it anyway
Anyway, so I’m Angie and I am a momma of 3 little ones. They are my whole life! Yes, I love them dearly, but they’re literally my whole life. I barely get 10 minutes a day to actually acknowledge I’m breathing deeply enough and that the feeling of my head pounding in frustration are just symptoms of being a mom, not dying (I wish I could insert emojis to further convey my feelings but unfortunately real life keyboards aren’t equipped with those- to my knowledge). The other 1,430 minutes in the day I belong to my children and am not my own person, lol. But it is all worth it! My guy (David) keeps me together; he is the absolute most laid back and worry-free dude I’ve ever met. He soothes the burning volcano that is my erratic womanly behavior, and he’s smokin’ in a fresh haircut too (insert heart eyes).
