New Year at Biltmore

My mom and I decided yesterday to make a trip to Biltmore in hopes of seeing the Christmas decorations. We missed Candlelight Evenings by one night but it didn't matter. Everything was still beautiful. You can't take photos inside the House so this photo is all you get to document our tour.

Me - bad blogger. I am on a much needed vacation with my extended family. This is my morning view from the back porch. Have a good Friday, everyone!

Mustache 101

Anybody else hear about this thing called Google+? (Please excuse sarcastic lady voice) A friend invited me so I joined. The most awesome part I have found is the Sparks feature. I read some reviews stating they thought this was the least used feature, but for me it is the most. I have found some blogs and videos I may have never come across otherwise. Don't be surprised if you get bombed with mustache items for the next couple of days. Today it is a YouTube video called Mustache 101. I gotta 'stache and dash. See you at my next post!

Am I Ready?

To be pregnant? I had an HSG this week with hopes of no blocked fallopian tubes. I did have one blocked tube but it is on my side that my ovary was removed so this is good. My other tube is open and ready for business. According to the doctor, my next couple of months are important.  I always said I didn't want diva-child to be an only child. Starting over when diva-child is so independent is really making me question this decision. We are taking it day by day and will deal with a baby if higher powers sees fit.

I have been going through lots of changes recently, external and internal. I started taking spin classes over a month ago and I believe this is improving my physical and mental health. I am starting to see things differently. I am questioning things I never have and feelings I have closeted in the past are coming to light. I may not be the best blog writer, the best mother, the most artistic, but I AM ME. Accepting this is hard but accepting it and not working to change what you can is a tragedy.

I had a pretty awesome weekend. Friday evening spin class was cancelled so I used the time to attend a friend's Scentsy party. Saturday, I did some cleaning and went to the drive-in for the first time. Steven and I double dated with my friend Cathy and her hubby. Today, I had margaritas with another friend and we had great conversation. Overall, great couple of days.

I hope everyone has a great week and I'll be blogging something tomorrow if I get up the nerve.

We are attempting to make pickles from cucumbers and dill S. has been babying. If it works, I have a feeling there will be many more pickling cucumber plants in my future.
