My Blog Title...

When I first created my blog, like most of you, I sat and pondered over what the heck I was going to title it...

I knew for a fact that I wanted it to have the word Journey in it...since that's what I consider this thing called life, however, I also knew I wanted it to say something about motherhood.

I thought about what my goals for this blog were...
I wanted to blog about my weight-loss journey
I wanted to blog about being a young mom
I wanted to blog about me and my transition into the woman and mother I aspire to be...

So there you have it...
Journey 2 Milfhood

I have been getting some negative feedback lately on the title of my blog due to the word 'Milf' being used (google it if you need to...I'll wait), and I must say that I'm a little surprised...I guess I didn't realize how conservative people really are. I did NOT use the word for what it LITERALLY means! Milf to me is just synonymous for hot mom... Weight-loss, my journey to becoming better looking...see where I was going with it? ...If not, this blog probably isn't for you anyway. 

I thought about changing the title this afternoon after hearing more negative feedback, and I have decided that I don't want to. 

This is my blog.
 I love it. 
 I have worked hard on it
& I think the title is perfect for it...


Have you received any negative feedback about your blog titles? Did you give in and change 'em?

Garage Sales & a Photoshoot...

The women in my family LOVE a good garage sale...or anything involving shopping & good deals

So...early this morning my mother, Maddox, Mallory (my aunt), and Harrison (her son), went to a few garage sales in search of treasures.

Unfortunately, no real treasures were found, but it was still nice getting out of the house and spending time with family.

 After garage saling we grabbed lunch at a Mexican restaurant near my Aunt's house. The service was horrendous but the food was good. A steak burrito later, we were back in the car and on our way home.

The weather today was fanfreakingtastic! So when we got home I decided I wanted to go for a walk with Md and camara in tow...

We walked around downtown Lasalle & I think I captured some pretty good shots of my little guy. 
Maddox cooperated wonderfully and the weather and lighting were perfect! Talk about a trifecta!
I love days like these...

Maddox- 3 Years Old







Hoping your day was just as pleasant! :)

10 frugalicious products for beauty on a budget...

Being a full-time college student and single parent means that the money I spend on beauty products needs to be reasonable, as I should  never have to contemplate "Hmm pay bills, or look fabulous?"...

Before motherhood and responsibility, I shopped with companies like MAC and Lancome, however, these days Target must suffice...

Now please don't mistake that as being a complaint...
I LOVE Target!
