A letter to my daughter

My dearest baby. You are actually no longer a little baby, but a growing toddler. It's gone by way too fast. I'm afraid to blink because before I know it you'll be grown up! I'm not ready for that yet! You are the joy of my life. When I sing "You are my Sunshine", it really is true. You make my life bright and full of happiness. I never knew I could love someone sooo much! The moment I laid eyes on you, I fell in love with you. And everyday since then it's only grown stronger and stronger. I hope you know and feel my love for you. It is forever and it is unconditional. You may be only 18months but you are my little BFF. We're always together, we're always smiling and laughing. You are growing so fast, you are one smart cookie! You love to repeat things I say. You love to talk and sometimes I don't understand it all but it's great to hear your little cute voice. You make me so proud. I'm so happy with how you're little personality is developing. I just wanted to write you a little note to tell you how much you mean to me (you mean the world to me), and how much I love you (more than anything in this world). Maybe when you're older you will read this little note and it will bring a smile to your face. I know that every moment I have with you put a smile on my face and in my heart :)

Love,
Mommy

New Beginnings

Well sort of. I would really like to pursue my out call massage business more. My goal has always been to spend more time with my family. I would like to create my own schedule and make my own hours. At first I thought I should go back into direct sales. But I really love doing massage and so I will really put more effort into advertising that. I started today by making a business blog:
MassagebyKristina.blogspot.com and adding my business to Yelp! In hopes that I could get some good reviews on there. I have great friends who are spreading the word and referring me to others. I appreciate it so much! Hopefully soon I can quit the spa job and do out call massage "full time". Troys' schedule changes and he also gets overtime which causes some conflict w/ my work schedule. We now have to find childcare for Kailee on those days, which is not something I would like to do. So I'm crossing my fingers and putting positive energy out there!

Some unusual facts about me

* I was born in Naples, Italy - I'm not Italian at all

* My Dad legally changed his name to Bubba - he's a winner... NOT!

* I had an imaginary boyfriend when I was little and his name was Zach Morris - oh Zach...

* I tied my shoes in front of a door in 1st grade. The door opened, hit my head, I couldn't breath, ran to the nurses office, nurse was refilling toilet paper in her bathroom, I fainted - moral of the story? Never tie your shoe in front of a door, dummy!

* I have moles on 2 fingers - strange place for a mole

* I kiss my dog on the lips - he's my dog, I would never do this w/ any other dog, yuck!

* I love to smell my Daughters stinky feet - sniiiffff!

* I knew I loved my Husband on our 4th day together - when you know, you know

* I had a mean old 2nd grade Catholic school teacher. He threw a book at a student once - he was horrible

* I can not, not pop a pimple - yes it's a problem

* I can speak Tagalog fluently - I like to surprise people when they start talking smack that they think I can't understand

* When I was little, I once put salt in the bath and waited (and waited... and waited) for my legs to turn into a mermaid tail. - I watched Splash! way to many times.

*Skinny* to be or not to be?

Well one things for sure I don't want to be a skinny bitch, lol. But I would like to be comfortable with my body again. I've lost nearly 10lbs, woohoo go me! Just a few more to go. I love my body, and therefore I want to keep it healthy. Also I think it's unfair for me to try to stuff it into low rise skinny jeans. I've learned to accept my stretch marks. Hey they're a sign of Motherhood and I will embrace that. I'm 28, and I'm getting a little too old to try to wear short shorts. Plus it isn't flattering on me. I now don't care what the size really is, as long as it fits me. I think we get stuck on sizes, even the number on the scale! (Did you know Marilyn Monroe's dress size was a 12 and her pant size was 8? Love it!) I don't know what number I will be happy with. I'll just know when I look at my nekkid body in the mirror and I'm happy with it. I LOVE my curves and I don't want to lose them.
I got a hair cut just recently and realized I really need to take care of myself. And stop using being a Mom as an excuse to let myself go. I will have cute hair. I will NOT leave the house in sweat pants and a t-shirt. I will brush my teeth... wait... haha Just Kidding! of course I brush my teeth!
Ok that's it for now. But let me share this link with you: Curves Ahead
