- I have been working at my place of employment for 10 1/2 years and in these 10 1/2 years, I have never been this stressed out over a case, let alone 2 cases. Without going into much detail (since I can't), the one case that comes to be on Tuesday deals with legal issues. Not only do I have to educate myself on Nevada law, but Federal law.

Do you ever get the gut wrenching feeling at night when work stress won't let your brain shut off. Yep, that is me. Please send positive thoughts to me on Tuesday. I am going to need it. Plus a huge coffee in the morning and maybe a cocktail after work.

- I need some suggestions on bike helmets for toddlers. Which ones do your kids have? I sold some items on a baby swap online and I want to use the money to buy the girls helmets for their strider balance bikes.

- I keep hearing rumors about the anniversary iPhone and I hope they are all true. I also hope that the new phone will come out in September or October. I am jealous of all the 7 plus phones out there.

- How is it going to be May on Monday? I feel like we just started the year and we are already rolling into May. I am hoping May brings nice weather here.

- So I got my hair done Tuesday and I love it. I took off about an inch and a half and had my color redone. My stylist always gets my hair so full of volume and always makes it look amazing. It is soft, but still has volume and it smells heavenly. Why can't I mimic that?

- In April 2013, I started this blog. I didn't write much in it and I used it to keep a diary of my life and didn't put much effort into it. Then I started to write more when I was engaged and then it really took off when I was trying to get pregnant. I just can't believe I have been doing this for four years. I only wish I had put this much effort into it before.

Which brings me to my next thought. I am thinking of hosting a giveaway for my 4th blogiversary and I wanted to get feelers out there if anyone wants to participate in it. I am not good at doing this, so I need some guidance, but I want to grow my blog and social media and help others do the same.


  1. I'm sorry work is stressful this week! Hopefully you get to relax this weekend. I want the iPhone 7 so bad-I hear the camera is amazing!!

  2. Work stress is the worst. So sorry friend! I have the 7 plus and love it. But I'm sure will be jelly when the new one comes out!! Yay for 4 years of blogging! You know I'm game for helping with a giveaway!

  3. We have this helmet for Emmy...http://www.trekbicyclesuperstore.com/product/bontrager-little-dipper-179111-1.htm?variations=98520&gclid=CNiHkqS-xNMCFVc6gQodi6UA7Q Cam has a big kid helmet now. :) Sorry about work stress. That is never fun. Hope it gets better soon.

  4. I can never get my hair to look like my hair stylist does!! WHY!?!?! I hope next week at work goes good, I'll be thinking of you!! My girls have a similar helmet to the one you linked.

  5. I'd participate in the giveaway! I've never done one before so I can't give you much advise on that.

  6. I worked in finance for 12 years and every Sunday night I'd wake up 3 or 4 in a full blown anxiety attack. Since I was dealing with other peoples money and timing was everything, I'd panic that I forgot to execute a trade or cut a check. I wouldn't breathe normally again until around 10 on Monday. I switched to another industry 6.5 years ago and have never had a single panic attack. I feel your pain...work stress is no joke!

  7. I am so sorry for all of the stress! Pray you feel an overwhelming sense of calmness and peace soon. An anniversary iPhone? I haven’t heard about that one! Going to google it now. I have the 7 plus and love it, but I’m sure this new one will win me over. You should post a picture of your new hair! I want to see.

  8. I really wish I'd gotten the iPhone 7+!! We have the 7, but the good camera is on the +.

    And I'd participate in a giveaway! I've joined a couple that were run by other bloggers so I know a little bit about it, but I've never taken the reigns to organize one so I don't know a ton about all of the background logistics. I'm sure we could figure it out, though.

  9. Hooray for 4 years blogging! I'd be happy to participate in a giveaway, so fun. Also, I keep forgetting to do Confessional Thursday. I need to set a reminder for next week. Ugh. And, I've heard about the new iPhone too. That's exactly when my upgrade is! I hope it is good. That is so random you mentioned the helmets because that's exactly what we're on the hunt for right now. The one you linked to looks good! So cute!

  10. I'm so sorry you're having a tough time at work! Thinking of you! XOXO

  11. I'm not good at giveaway promotions - but I'm sure going to try& win ;) haha
    I'll be sending you good vibes on Tuesday. I hate stress. HATE IT.
    I feel like new iphones come out every few months. They are constantly coming out with new things.

  12. I would participate in your giveaway! Good luck on Tuesday.

  13. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way!

  14. A giveaway sounds fun and I would participate. Sweetie, I am so sorry it's been so stressful but I know this will pass for you and you will get through this. Lots of positive vibes coming your way!

    1. Thank you so much and I will reach out to you about the giveaway!

  15. I'm back at the link up girl! I came back once and the post was different so I thought confessions were over! I just realized it's a monthly link up!

    And yes to a giveaway!

    - Claudia

    1. Oh it's more of a confessions/Thoughts on Thursday link up. Please link up however you like. Sometimes I confess, sometimes I just spill my thoughts and other times both!
