Pregnant with MoMo Twins | High Risk & Rare

First Trimester: The Shock

I had confirmed my pregnancy with my doctor at around 4 weeks through blood tests for HCG (the pregnancy hormone). They give you one test and then a second 48 hours later with the doctor looking to see if the HCG has doubled. Given how far along I was, the doctor told me she expected to see the hormone level at around 150 and double to 300. I had 400 on my first test and it went up to 1,400 in 48 hours. I asked if this was bad and the answer was not at all you just have a really strong pregnancy! I remember telling Pat and him joking, “What if it’s twins?”.

Hustled by Your Wedding Planner? Probably.

A friend recently texted me and asked me where I had gotten my wedding flowers. She had seen a recent Facebook post of mine where I was shedding light on what had happened to me during my wedding planning process (more of that below) and she wanted to avoid that. She said that her wedding planner was really pushing a pricey florist and couldn’t figure out why… well I most likely have your answer. Below are three tips to being a smart bride and avoiding the wedding industry hustle.

Wedding Cake Nightmare

As I got to sit down at my sweetheart table, I see a 6 tiered monstrosity staring back at me. What could that be? Certainly not my cake. My cake is suppose to be old metallic gold, not yellow. My cake is suppose to be 20's influenced, not have the appearance of being made by a toddler. My cake it suppose to be nice and smooth, not with bubbles. And most importantly, my cake isn't supposed to be leaning. Think I'm being dramatic? Everyone thinks so until I show them the pictures.

Best Microblading in Tampa Bay

I’d been seeing the microblading trend around for the last couple years, but was super hesitant to try it. I personally have pretty good eyebrows/coloring- but I do find them a little patchy and end up using eyebrow gel a lot. In the last year or so I’ve been finding myself wearing a lot less make up then I used to. Call me lazy or call me self-assured but I just feel like it’s hard to find the hour to slap on the face these days. But wouldn’t it be nice to wakeup and at least have those brows done…

How I Fell in Love with Acai Bowls

Last Fall as I was trying to get in the orange zone (actually impossible for me I swear) I saw out of the window a store going up called "The Good Berry". While sweating my a$$ off I became to fantasize what they could possibly serve. A smoothie place? Well why was their logo a bowl then? These are the question the plagued me while trying to think of anything else but the plank I was attempting to hold.
