The San Diego Zoo became the result of an abandoned exotic animal exhibition back in 1915, and about a year later, Dr. Harry M. Wegeforth founded the Zoological Society of San Diego. The SD Zoo gained it’s popularity for the “cagefree” exhibits. It now sits on a hundred acres in the notable Balboa Park and houses over thirty-five-hundred different animals of a vast amount of different species and subspecies. People from all over the world visit the widely known world famous San Diego Zoo every single day.
I have been baking on and off for about eight years now. I love baking cupcakes and cake pops. Those are my specialties. Although I am no where near where I'd like to be as a baker, I am content with the learning that comes with it, though. That's what makes it that much more fun to do. I'll be honest. I use boxed cake mixes. But let me tell you... every single party that I have baked for has been blown away. (I'm usually super worried they aren't good enough and then super pumped when they are gone within minutes of being out). I like to add my own creativity to them.
The idea of going home on oxygen is overwhelming so travelling with it can seem a bit scary. Before I go deeper into my experiences, I want to remind you to always ask your physician or pulmonologist first to determine the best way to travel. We notified our doctors months in advance of our travels. For us, our pediatrician was okay with flying, but our pulmonologist was not. So we chose to drive instead. Our first trip was about a nine to ten hour drive from San Diego, Ca to Sacramento, Ca.
I think most girls dream of being a mom at some point in their life. I always pictured myself having at least three kids (just like my mom had). I wanted to start having kids at twenty-five years old and have my kids about two years apart in age. It seemed reasonable. A couple of months after turning twenty-five, I found out I was pregnant. The crazy part is that the day before I found out, we had discussed possibly waiting a bit longer to have kids. So you can imagine the mix of emotions that came flooding in. I didn't really even know what to think. I was happy and excited, but at the same time scared and nervous. Were we ready? Was this the right time? Would Albert be happy about it? It took a few days for it to really sink in. I. Was. Pregant.
Are you a mom and thinking about going back to school, but don’t know how to include it into the life you’ve created? Fret no more because I am a mom who is currently in school and I am here to tell you how I fit it into my life. I currently attend school part-time while being a full-time stay at home mom. I’ll be honest, this is about my sixth time going back to school in the last decade. I struggled a lot with what I wanted to do. I guess you can call me a “dreamer.” I juggled around the idea of becoming a doctor, getting a business degree, becoming certified in medical administration, billing and coding and now nursing. Wow, that was a mouth full.
I am going to be real honest in this post and I am going to talk about weight, which is usually hard for me to do. So, please, no judgment. I have struggled with weight for a while now. Every time I seemed to get a grasp at managing it, something happens and throws me in for a loop. I guess that’s just a part of life that I am still trying to figure out how to handle. I hit my first low and all-time weight gain after my dad passed away in 2013. The scale then read 201lbs. Keep in mind: I am only 4’11” in height. It took me a while, but I was able to get back down to the 160’s and by the end of 2016 after going into very premature labor, I was back to a whopping 200lbs. My problem? I am an emotional and super stress eater. I also tend to go without eating and end up binging later. Lets just say my eating habits are bad!
