For as long as I can remember I’ve always said “I will always be 23!” I refuse to be any older. 23 just seems like a good age unless you’re familiar with the song “Whats My Age Again”, by Blink 182. If you’re not familiar with it, play the video and give it a listen. Not to mention the boys streaking and rocking out butt ass naked throughout the video is HILARIOUS!
Well my FIRST 23rd Birthday was this past Friday and all day long this song just kept playing in the back of my mind. I’m sure it will play in my head every year as I turn 23 again 😉
At least I know Christopher loves me!
I mean, the guy must really love me to get on the floor, in a casino, full of people, and model in front of a car just because I asked him too!
I love this goober! The amount of photos we took while waiting on our taxi is a tad bit ridiculous. YES! WE HAVE TAXIS AND CASINOS IN MISSISSIPPI!
I’ll share a few with y’all!
Yeah… We are a little goofy… But that’s us on a daily basis, even with out the drinks from the Hard Rock ~(0-0)~
Besides the amazing time we had out that night, I got the most amazing birthday present from my mom ever!
A NEW SEWING MACHINE!
Isn’t she BEAUTIFUL!!! I get her on Monday (Stupid UPS is so SLOWWWWW)
My mother also bought me the most AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS cake I’ve EVER tasted!
And it’s also PINK!
In case you couldn’t tell, that’s whipped cream icing, with 5 layers of chocolate cake, and in between each layer of cake is chocolate PUDDING! Oh my gawd this thing is heaven!
But enough about my birthday, it is now my mom’s birthday! And she still looks 23!
I’ve never had a natural birth, so I can’t really compare a natural birth to a cesarean… But what I can do is tell you the hidden truth about a c-section from my personal experience.
But before I do, here’s some of back story of my pregnancy.
I REFUSED to believe I was pregnant. Christopher was the one who brought it up because I’d be having bad stomach cramps and I was “late” I’ve NEVER been a typical woman when it can to my cycle due to endometriosis. I could go two months without a period, or have a period that lasted an entire month. Yes, my body hates me!
Well anyway he told me to take a test just to be sure. I, thinking he was absolutely nuts, went to the Dollar Tree and got a test. Yes, I paid $1.00 for a test.
The look of horror on my face the second I realized it was positive. I ran out the door, drove to the closest place, bought 5 of the expensive test, and took every last one. Yupp, he was right. I was pregnant!
So I came across “11 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started Blogging“ while researching blogging tips and hot topics. After reading over it, I figured I’d summarize it for some of you, but I highly recommend reading the original post if you are blogging for a living.
Number One: Being Social
Don’t expect people to just stumble across your blog. Yes, it happens, That’s how a few of you found me 😉 BUT the best way to get your blog out there is through other social media. Facebook,Pinterest, Twitter,andStumbleUpon to name a few… I started to thinking about it after I read it and thought about how popular Instagramhas become. If you have a lot of followers via Instagram I’d recommend it as well. Don’t be shy! Put yourself out there and make some connections!
Number Two: Consistency
Be consistent with how often you post. If you go one week writing absolutely nothing, the next week writing every day, and the following week only blogging once, it will have a negative impact on your traffic. This probably means I’ll be in big trouble soon since, I’m so excited about my first blog, I’ve written at least one post a day! I plan to post an average of 3 times a week.
Number Three: What Goes Online, Stays Online
Be passionate about the things you blog about. Ensure every post is a masterpiece. It can take one “lazy” post to screw up your reputation. You may find people blogging about how much you suck. Ouch. Once you put it out there, it’s there forever. Are you scared yet?
