Vacation Confessional Thursday


Thursday, April 14, 2016

Even though I am on vacation, I couldn't pass up another round of Confessions. So join me today in linking up with Jessica from The Newly for Confessional Thursday.

I confess that I am enjoying my vacation way too much. This vacation was much needed. I have been stressing about life (mainly money) and this is what the doctor ordered (or my husband). Plus we are able to have a proper goodbye to Rory's great aunt.

I confess that I finally feel more confident in my postpartum body. I have spent months at the gym, trying to eat better, having umbilical hernia surgery and getting my booty moving and I feel like it has paid off. The biggest part of it was the surgery. The confidence my doctor gave me by giving me an innie, making the pain go away and sewing my abs shut has done wonder. I am rocking a bikini as we speak in Mexico. Thank you Dr. Murphy.

I confess that even more work travel has been added to my agenda. Stay tuned on where I will be traveling. Next week will be a test run to see how I, the girls and Rory do with me being gone. Wish us all luck.

I confess that I am so grateful for everyone who has done a guest post this week and the ones that are coming up next week. You ladies rock and I am so thankful to have you in my blogging tribe.

I confess that Pearl and Monroe Boutique has been killing it lately in their Spring/Summer clothes and it is taking everything in me to not buy it all. The t-shirt dresses, button up tanks and maxis are too cute to pass up. I have been rocking my peach kimono in Mexico all week!

And those are my confessions. Short and sweet. I hope you all have an amazing Thursday and upcoming weekend. Come back tomorrow for Lindsay's guest post. It involves an amazing cocktail!

  1. Glad you are having so much fun in Mexico. You definitely deserve it. And you are one hot momma in your bikini. Way to go girl. You should feel confident. I can't wait to read all about your vacation and boo to more work travel, but I know you guys will handle it just great.

    1. It was an amazing time. Thank you for your sweet comment. I love that bikini and felt great in it. I have more to go and want to keep working at it, but I felt great in it. At least my work travel is coming in July most likely. Gives us time to regroup because that one will be closer to two weeks gone. Yikes.

    1. Thank you. I had the best time and feel good about my bikini body now. Not like I want to rock it daily, but felt that I can wear it without feeling so bad. (I say this as I am eating a cupcake and pumpkin bread from a bake sale, haha).

  5. Girl, you look fantastic in your bikini! I wish I looked that good right now! I still have a little belly pouch from Mila. I almost wonder if I have slight diastasis recti. Enjoy the rest of your vacation! So happy to hear you're having a wonderful time!

    1. Thank you. I was a little worried about posting a bikini pic because of the haters out there, but I wanted to show off my progress. It is funny because Rory took a couple photos of me and you could see my drain scar (from my hernia surgery) in them. Those bottoms are low cut. Ha. But I felt better about myself after seeing myself in the photo. I worked hard and still have a ways to go, but I haven't felt that confident in a long while. So thank you! You can check the diastasis with a finger check. It isn't super accurate, but can give you an idea. Google it and it will take you through the steps.

    1. The break was very much welcomed. I loved going to Mexico. So memorable. I felt amazing at the end of my trip, then had some drama with our flights, but it worked out and I made it home in time to leave again. Ha.

    1. I did soak them up. A little too much at first (hello partial sunburn), but at least my girls stayed covered up. I loved wearing my new bikini. Felt great in it!
