Got That ‘S’ On My Chest

Got That 'S' On My Chest

 Yeah. So last week? Cray.

On the 30th, while hubby gave a final exam, I not only started, but finished packing and enlisted two super seniors to help us move our ish across town (maybe they should’ve been studying for their own finals though… hmmm).  With Aunty’s departure looming, I knew I needed to take full advantage of the built in baby care, so I unpacked too… all before 7pm.  A celebratory glass (or 2) of Shiraz followed shortly thereafter. I spent much of the 1st on hold with utility companies, much of the 2nd in appointments and the 3rd, traveling to and from NYC for business. Things have chilled out but just for the moment. We’ll be loading up the car for a roadtrip later this week, heading to… Denton, NC.  More to come on that… 

In the meantime, check out the view–

Almost. Observe the requisite order of fries… and yes, that’s cheese, jalapenos, bacon bits and sour cream in those containers. #loaded #FatherForgiveMe
Got That 'S' On My Chest

    We were born with the S on our chest, embrace it but don't be afraid to ask for help. I was crazy enough to finish my Associates (just graduated Friday) while completing my Bachelors (graduate next year). At same time preparing for a peer coaching position at a women's center, working full time and helping my daughter with her 9 month old while she attends college as well. Lets just say my house looks like a frat house half of the time. LMBO, looking back trying to figure out how I did it all?!?!?!?!

    Dont be disappointed now if Gia's hair starts to be more like hubby's (she's still a baby al beit, a toddler but the hair texture will eventually change so get ready). I hear your angst (I'm wavy v dad's corkscrew).

  • marianela says:

    Thank you for inspiration. I have been cleaning all week long and just when I was going to give up, I read this. I will be wearing the s on my chest too from now on too.

    Nikki girl you are amazing! Super woman and super mom. What are you going to do with all that hair on Gia's head?!

  • Unknown says:

    Even with the bad food you still look GOOD, so dont beat yourself up about it. Other people will do that enough for you.

    This post is so inspirational! I'll be graduating next week from college and my head is spinning as I prepare for the summer and my 1st semester of graduate school. I think I'll just put the "S" on my chest and remind myself that it's all worth it!

    @Quite, girl. Yes. Denton. Long story. Will explain soon, lol.

    @anon, forreals?! Boog's next!

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    EMILY!!! OMG!!! Congrats! So excited for you ๐Ÿ˜€ And wow, a store too?! Damn. I guess I should sit down some where and stop complaining ๐Ÿ™‚

    @anon, funny you should ask that… stay tuned this week ๐Ÿ™‚

    @shelli, thanks chica ๐Ÿ™‚ Her hair is NUTS. It's just like mine… looser curls up front, frizzier, tighter curls in the back… super duper fine and prone to tangles. It's almost bizarre. I notice that she has more corkscrews (like hubby) than me. I'm mostly s waves.

    Gia is not too young for MENSA. A two year old was just inducted. The youngest ever.

  • Quite says:

    Nik, you are too funny. I love your sense of humor and down right honesty. I was wondering if any of your in-laws were #teamnatural? I've never seen you mention any get togethers with your hubby's family or any interviews.
