From Being Mom’s Favorite to a Mom Myself

From being an only child and mom's favorite, to being a big sister, to being the oldest of six kids, somehow I got lost along the way. But now that I'm going to be a mom myself, I'm ready to share my journey.

From being an only child and mom's favorite, to being a big sister, to being the oldest of six kids, somehow I got lost along the way. But now that I'm going to be a mom myself, I'm ready to share my journey. Oh hi.. Bryana Gregory here. New to Galveston Island (Atlanta, GA to here...can you say culture shock?) with one on the way (I'M GONNA BE A MOMMY)!! 28 years old and the oldest of 6, definitely the rebel child of the group. I mean some of us just really never wanna grow up; can I get an amen?! I'm addicted to coffee, elephants, rain boots, Hot Cheetos, tanning, fishing, the color black, and my ever-growing baby bump. He's already my greatest adventure and we still have one week until we actually meet face to face! Life as I know it is about to change ANDDD I truly couldn't be more ecstatic!! From Being Mom's Favorite to a Mom Myself So let's back up a little bit...growing up (refer to rebel child), I didn't always exceed people's expectations, especially when it came to … [Continue]

When Your Baby Girl Turns 11…Let Her Shine!

This little girl of mine, I'm gonna let her shine. Let her shine, let her shine, let her shine. Bug turns 11 today and it's a big deal. I'm just trying to figure out where to go from here. What do you do when your baby girl turns 11?

This little girl of mine, I'm gonna let her shine. Let her shine, let her shine, let her shine. Bug turns 11 today and it's a big deal. I'm just trying to figure out where the time went. What do you do when your baby girl turns 11? There's no real reason for writing this post, I guess. Maybe it's just for me. Maybe it's for my Bug some day. I don't know, but I'm drawn to write it. Bump SEO, bump pageviews, forget about who even reads it at all. This is about my youngest baby girl and I. You see, it's a bumpy road with her and I. It always has been. I wanted her more than life itself when I conceived her, yet as the years go by, I've wondered what in the HECK I was thinking when I made the conscious decision to have another child when I did. All in all, I wouldn't change a thing, in fact. Today, this baby girl turns 11 years old and I'm just happy (more times than not) to just let her shine and call her mine. See, my baby girl hit the streets running, figuratively (OK it would … [Continue]

Gather as a family, watch Descendants 2, make Coconut Water Fresh Fruit Pops, and just enjoy some down time for a change!

Gather as a family, watch Descendants 2, make Coconut Water Fresh Fruit Pops, and just enjoy some down time for a change! Oh yea, and I should tell you, I did receive a full party pack from Team Click to facilitate this post. We loved the first Disney Descendants movie and we couldn't wait for Descendants 2 to come out. The minute it did, I knew we needed a movie night so a movie night we had...with healthy popsicles and all. Because that's how we roll. But don't get me wrong...I didn't do the the whole "I'm the perfect mom with healthy snacks and stuff" thing...we had wigs, and dancing...and we stayed up way too late. But we did have healthy popsicles (more on that later), so there's that. We put in the movie, we put on the wigs, we donned the hats, wore the necklaces...and we partied like Disney stars. It was a fun night! Descendants 2 Movie Synopsis The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit, Descendants, as the teenage sons and daughters of … [Continue]
