Why, oh why have missed the past like 4 Pinteresting Wednesdays?! I hang my head in shame…
But alas, I am back!
And I’m totally sounding mid-evil……
Anywhooooo! My newest pins!

Well, almost wordless. Ya’ll know I can’t NOT talk on my blog:)
I saw this on Facebook and posted it on my fan page, From Bottoms to Bows:
*When you buy from our boutiques, instead of helping a CEO buy a 3rd vacation home, you are helping a mom put food on the table, a student pay for her college textbooks, a little girl finally gets to take that ballet class they couldn't afford. Support our boutiques, SUPPORT A FAMILY! *
And I think that is SO true! I, myself, would rather buy something homemade or from a little local business than splurge on a brand name. And now that I AM a local business, I now know how it feels!
My anniversary is coming up the 27th of this month and I’m probably going to do a small giveaway:) So be sure to “like” From Bottoms to Bows on Facebook! (it’s also located on the top right of my blog!)
Now on to the wordless part lol.

Grr. Is it bedtime yet?
I hate feeling like the black sheep of the family. Yes, I dropped out of college. Yes, I got pregnant at 18 before marriage. Yes, I waited until AFTER I had my baby to get married. No, I didn’t marry someone rich. Yes, I’m 22 years old without a job/career. Yes, I had another baby when we weren’t “ready” at age 21.
I do what I can for my family. What WORKS for my family. And I’m happy. I have a husband who backs me up unconditionally and who loves the crap out of me. I have 2 BEAUTIFUL, healthy children who mean the whole world to me. And THAT’S enough for ME.
We are not rich. And we really aren’t poor. We just can’t afford to do everything we would like to. But my husband works hard for us. And I’m going to begin school (if they don’t screw my paperwork up again) in January to better our future.
All I want to do is buy a house and go to Disneyworld. And get an education. And send my kids to college.
That’s not too much is it? I’m pretty simple. And that’s the way I like it!

I haven’t done the dishes or laundry in about a week now. I don’t want to do anything. I’m tired.
I’m tired of feeling like everything (besides the bills) is on me.
I’m tired of being tired. A 22 year old woman should not feel this way.
And even sometimes, when I am trying to sleep because I’m so tired, I can’t. My mind won’t let me. And it’s getting really old.
I’ve been putting off making a doctor’s appointment because I didn’t want to be “that” type of person. Someone who can’t take care of herself or her house or her kids.
I don’t want to have to rely on medicine to make me happy.
I hate asking for help. I feel that if I have kids, then they are MY responsibility. That even if I am on my death bed, I have to take care of them. I feel that if I ask for help, I am incapable of being a good mother.
And that is my biggest fear: being a bad mom.
I want everything for my children. I want them to great life. I want them to make the right choices in life, better than I did.
I don’t hate my life.
Even though sometimes I feel like I’m living my life on repeat; the same routine every. single. day. Some days I just want to pack up and take a mini vacation, but I know that’s not possible right now.
I don’t live a home with my parents. I have a husband who takes the financial responsibility. So I don’t always get what I want. And that’s okay with me. I would rather work for what I get, then be given to me all the time.
I think sometimes I’m just not the same person I used to be. I want to be. I’m just not.
