I'm A Rebel

I can't wait to be a momma! We are well underway the daily shots that leads to mommahood in the end. My husband is a champion. He really gives shots well. Thank God for him, because there's no way I would stick myself with a needle. No way. My first doctor appointment is this Friday and I'm most def excited. That means we're one step closer! I am gonna kick "unexplained infertility" in the @$$!

Speaking of kids, as a wee one, I was a bit of a handful. God bless my parents for dealing with me. However, there is one thing that continues to stick, and I don't see it going away ANY time soon. It's slightly irritating to others, but it makes me feel empowered. It's the trait of rebellion. 

Yep, I am a rebel.
I only look innocent

Tell me that I can't do something, and I'll prove you wrong. And on the opposite: try to "make me" do something (regardless of if I actually wanna do it or not), and I will absolutely not even consider doing it. I'm a bit feisty in that way. And I kind of like that trait about myself.

For example: let's pretend that you are having a Valentine's Day party in exactly one week and you really want me to go. You called me and told me all the details, and I say that I'll think about it. As Valentine's Day gets closer, you start hounding me about it, aka pressuring me. Finally, 5 days later, I tell you that I can't go. I explain that I still think you're a great friend and that I hope you have fun (even without my presence). The wrong thing to do would be to ignore me from here on out because you're butt hurt that I didn't do what you wanted. Heaven forbid consideration of my time and my schedule. Thoughts in my head:

"With that reaction, you just proved why I don't always enjoy being around you."
"At least I was honest and up front with you. I could have made up a lame excuse."
"Maybe you should try a different tactic instead of pressuring me. You may be surprised by the outcome."
"I am too busy with school, church, work, my husband, housework, etc."
"Maybe I just don't want to go."
"Or maybe I would like to have a lazy day on the couch."

Like, I said ... rebel status for sure.

On a completely unrelated note, here are some exciting things:
1) I finished online defensive driving this weekend. Yay me.
2) Pure Barre kicked my booty over the weekend. I was such a newbie. More on that later.
3) My work week is only 3 days long.
4) My hubby and I will be celebrating 3 years of marriage in less than a month. I love love. 


  1. I'm so excited for you! I have a dear friend going through IVF, and I know how hard that is emotionally and what a toll the hormone injections can take on you. I'll be thinking of you, little rebel :)

    1. Thanks girl! It's been a whirlwind, but I am so thankful to be that much closer to a baby!

  2. WOOHOO, SHOTS! You go lady!!!

    EEEP, three years of marriage, how amazing!

  3. You're doing so well! I'm glad you've been so positive, too. This is just a season--soon the fun begins!

  4. That pictures is sooo cute!!! I can't wait to hear more about barre. I was dying in it yesterday evening after the long weekend.

  5. Bahahaha I'm so glad you wrote about this!!!! :) Also, I love how much you love love. #HowManyTimesCanWeSayLoveInASentence?
