Vacation » Rest + Relaxation

The good thing about May » VACATION TIME! It has been a busy busy month. I just got back from 10 days of rest and relaxation in Biloxi, Mississippi where my in laws are from. I hope to have all the pictures posted soon. During my stay, I didn’t even blog.

As a mom, a vacation isn’t really a vacation. With two small kids, I was running around, trying to keep these two busy and happy. Many times parents have to sacrifice their time for their kids. Of the ten days, my husband and I had two days to play. We spent one of the two days hanging out in New Orleans for a measely 5 hours. Five hours but we packed in as much as we could (eat). The last day of my stay, I had some me time and tried out a therapeutic massage at the Beau Rivage Casino and Hotel. After my massage, my husband picked me up and we caught a movie, The Avengers. The Avengers is the first movie my husband and I have seen together since Transformers 2. And when was Transformers 2 released? Yes, it has been that long.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.

  1. I was wondering where you were! So glad you had taken a vacation but I can certainly understand it’s tough to relax when you are travelling with 2 small kids! You sure you want a 3rd one?? lol!

    1. LOL, I know I want a third child (my husband and I talked about having at most 4 kids). I am just not sure if I’m ready for a third child at this moment. But if it happens, it happens.
