Happy Monday you guys!!
First and foremost, my hubby had a good birthday weekend! Now he has 2 more years until 30. Wow he’s getting old…haha. 👴🏾👴🏾This is a throwback. I realized we don’t really take lots of pictures together. But I’m happy to not have look like we are some perfect couple when we aren’t.
My Man’s Birthday Weekend
Well, we went to a hotel in Bensalem, PA called the Inn of the Dove. Now this isn’t some grand ass hotel with room service or anything. This is to get out and be alone with your partner. They have rooms with a jungle, black and gold, and honeymoon theme. I choose the Deluxe suite along with 2 packages. So when we entered the room it was decorated with rose petals, chocolates, a couple of roses, a candle, a birthday cake, and balloons. The bathroom is huge! 😍 It is a walk in shower with 2 heads and a wall bench. The room included a jacuzzi in the corner across from the king size bed. There is a working fireplace and they also give you a complementary log and champagne (WITH ALCOHOL 👏🏾). It had a mini fridge with two bottles of water and two cans of soda. The room had dim lights and the jacuzzi was just amazing. We spent the beginning and end in the tub 🛀.
This is one side of the bathroom. This is the left side (top) and right side (bottom) of the shower.
I also made plans with a few of his friends to go out to Texas Roadhouse because I knew he would get a free appetizer and enjoy the food. The next stop was Parx Casino where we blew $160 too easily. Ironically I played $20 to $37 then $87 but I lost it all. And then Craig did his thing and clearly we just aren’t good with gambling. What’s more funny is that was the second time I went to a casino ever. I said repeatedly I am not a gambler and I’ll watch from the sidelines but I don’t know what happened.
Super Bowl 52
THE EAGLES ARE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS!!! 🦅💚I’ve been a fan for a long time. I will sometimes root for the Redskin🚫 because of Craig but otherwise I have always loved the Eagles. I’m not knowledgable in the sport aside from some basic things. I really had no faith in my team until I saw them run on the field all high spirited. When I saw Malcolm Jenkins with that tackle of the Patriots WR…lawd I was like we got this. Craig ALMOST had me reconsidering until the 4 quarter showed 2 minutes and 9 seconds left. I really didn’t know what to think or say once the clock ran down, and Tom Brady’s attempt on a Hail Mary was a HELL NO 🛑.
Now I don’t need no one saying we got more rings than you, because clearly that didn’t matter when you didn’t win the Super Bowl! I cannot agree with the “celebration” going on in Philly but I have see just as many videos and photos of people who are Pats fans going crazy like the Eagles fans. Our fans have a rep of being sore fans. But people act as though we are the only fans to ever go crazy over the out come over a game.
The same people talking shit about the riots and damage being done are the same who don’t say nothing with an innocent person gets wrongfully assaulted or killed. 🤔 Save me with the bullshit.
I started Alaina with a little more vigorous potty training. I don’t expect my daughter to be amazing and perfect to get it done in 3-4 days. I just want to be more persistent with her for my sake. I don’t do too well with schedules and if I can get better with making the potty a habit, I will be happy. We could have a potty trained 2 year old 🤭 on our hands soon.
I also feel like I needed this weekend to release many of my stress and depression triggers. It was just magical. I was able to really miss Alaina because I wasn’t home with her for almost 24 hours. Craig and I were able to be intimate without worrying about Alaina or her being in bed with us. It is never easy to live with other people. I think I will say that plenty more times in this blog. But it is very much true.
We also lack the space to have room for us and our baby. She has to sleep with us so we can ALL be warm together with the space heater on. We can’t just cuddle or lay next to one another. And it isn’t because we are parents and our baby just wants to sleep with us. This child could sleep anywhere with no issue. So can her dad, he can fall asleep as soon as he turns over. I could be in mid sentence and he’s sleep.
Lately, I’ve been so annoyed to see people act like they know everything. I understand if that is what you learned in school, at work, or just searching on your own. But damn, it is like if you have access to the internet you must have a degree. Where did you graduate from? Trump Internet University? If it is politics…then its all about how this is wrong and that is wrong. If it is about a case or involving the law…then here are all these law professionals. Like I said you may do this for a living, so go on and do your thing. But for internet trolls 👹, shut the hell up.
This has nothing to do with my babe, this is just a hilarious photo I found on the internet. 🤪
I just keep being tested in multiple ways. And I can’t control when I am. I can only learn and move from it. I can just try to grow and be the strongest I can be. I’m just tired of being underestimated. My capabilities are limitless.
My rant of crap is over. I hope everyone enjoys their week. Again, happy birthday baby, Alaina and I love you bunchies!! I will be doing another post later in the week! I’m already hoping for the weekend 😩. Be safe. Be strong. Live on!
Trayvon Martin should have turned 23 years old today. 💔
