Some things you may not know…

About ME! 🙂 

I love reading little secrets and stuff about other people, or just random facts that I don’t know about people, so I thought I would do one for myself, so here are some little fun facts about yours truly!

  • My Middle name is Diana, and was named so because of the Goddess of the Moon!
  • My favorite food of all time is CHEESE! I can eat cheese with everything, expect for cottage cheese, that is disgusting.
  • My natural hair color is BLONDE! Everyone is always super surprised when I tell them this lol, I haven’t had my natural hair color since the 5th grade.

 

Me as a blonde, oh and with my pet pig, named Porkchop lol!

  • And speaking of hair, I graduated from Cosmetology school only to find out…I don’t like doing hair! I love coloring hair, but I hate cutting it, styling it, perming it, or anything else. I just want to color, and ya can’t be a hair stylists with those high demands LOL.

Oh, how damaged my hair was when I was in cosmetology school..lol

 

  • I’m a Medical Assistant, and I love it! I work at an MMA gym right now, where I get to bandage up cuts, mat burns, and tape broken toes lol!
  • I do not have a Favorite movie, but I do have a top 5 which are: Rocky Horror Picture Show, Party Monster, Alpha Dog, Girl, Interrupted, and Queen of the damned.
  • I am a reality TV show JUNKIE! It is my “guilty pleasure” I guess. My favorite TV show of all time is Big Brother. I have watched every season, and last season I even made a “team brenchal” shirt for my 2 favorite players, and wore it in public.

Oh yes, I went there. don’t hate! lol

 

  • I LOVE to read, and always have. My favorite series is by Laurell K. Hamilton and has 21 books in the series, I own every one of them, and have read all of them atleast twice. 

Here are just a few

 

  • I did not see the beach for the first time until 2 years ago, on my honeymoon, to Jamaica, I’m pretty sure no other beach will ever compare to that one.

first time with my toes in the sand!

  • I used to be what we called a “Band-Aid” which is an upgrade to a groupie, for 3 local bands in the area that me and all my friends loved, and we each dated a member of the band atleast once lol!
  • I have 6 tattoos. I got my 1st once when I was 15! It is a 3 moon symbol on the back of my neck, and I passed out while getting it. I also have my daughters initials on my left shoulder, and a home done “Hachet man” on my right, which I will not cover up because of the memories attached to it. I also have a “ghost cat” on my left forarm, which I hate, and will get covered up, and I have Alice from American Mcgee’s Alice (evil alice) on my right forarm, which is a cover up for a HORRIBLE skull and crossbones tattoo I had before hand.  My latest tattoo is also on my right forarm on the other side of my Alice and it is a quote from Alice and the Madness returns that says “The World is not so either/or Alice” and is from the Carpenter. 

It’s no done yet! but I love it already!

  • If you haven’t guessed, we love Alice in Wonderland in this house. It is the theme of my tattoos, my wedding, Jaiden’s 4th birthday, and Jaiden’s Halloween costume. 

Jaiden in Wonderland

 

  • The 3 things I can’t live without, (besides my family or air lol) is my cellphone, eyeliner, and a hair tie! I am constantly on my phone, and never turn in off, my eyes are super small so without eyeliner I look really silly, and my hair is super long, and thick, so I have it up alot. 
  •  I love going to concerts, and have been to probably well over 100. My favorite is a tie between seeing my favorite band of all time (Nine Inch Nails) on halloween night, or a festival me and one of my very best friends went to in ATL that had Godsmack, Cowboy mouth, Traped, Evenessense, and more! I’ve also taken my 4 year old to see 3 concerts already too, Yo Gabba Gabba, Barney, and Disney on Ice!
  • I am an avid giveaway enterer. I love reading mom blogs, and entering contests. and I win! (sometimes) I’ve one $150 cash, a tent, giftcards, food, bows, outfits, ipad stuff, DVDs, blurays, and toys! 
  • I used to be really in the “candy kid” scene, and all the things that went along with it. and I had a blast, and I’m not ashamed of it, I realized it when it became a problem, and I stopped.

In full club kid mode

  • Jaiden was born 12 days early, and at only 5 lbs, because I had a hole in my umbilical chord, she was small, but she was perfect!

My little miracle baby ❤

  • 2 days ago, on Halloween 2012, I was the birthing partner for my best friend, and I got to cut her baby boys umbilical chord, and it was the most beautiful/disgusting thing I have ever done or seen.

Monthly Weigh In and other happenings!

So the question is….

 

How does 21 pounds down look on me!?

 

That’s right! Since 9-29-12 I’ve lost 21 lbs! And not only that…Here are my measurements for the month:

  • Waist- 5 inches lost!
  • Chest- 3 inches lost!
  • Arms-1 inch lost!
  • Hips- 4 inches lost!
  • Thighs-2 inches lost!

In a month! everyone at the clinic was so excited for me! I’m excited for me too lol!

 

I can only go up from here, I have too, and thanks to my clinic, I have Motivation :

 

 

Oh yes. I love money, shots, and apple products. It’s going down! I’m going to work twice as hard this month as i did last month lol! 

 

I’m so glad something has gone right this week. The rest of the week has been HORRIBLE. Let this be a message to anyone that is considering Mirena IUD for birth control..

 

I know that all birth control has side effects, and affects everyone differently, so this is not medical advice, this is just my personal experiences with this “medicine” 

 I got the Mirena in June of 2008. 6 weeks after I had Jaiden. Insertion SUCKED and it hurt, but other then that, the first few months was great! After that it seemed to go downhill. I lost my sex drive almost completely!  For a 20 year old, that is NO fun! I also cried at freaking everything, and I was super annoyed a lot of the time. I was tired, bloated, and moody. After the first year I guess I got “used” to the symptoms, so I didn’t think much about it, and after the first 6 months, I didn’t have a period at all, so that’s a plus. 

 

The next 3 years were more of the same, still no period…until 2 weeks ago, and what a period it was..I almost went to the ER thinking something was really wrong! I took a trip to my GYN and got a pap smear, while getting this my doctor informs me that my cervix was “infected, and irritated”. What does that mean!? Did it growl at you to let you know it was irritated!? I had to wait a freaking WEEK to get the results from my test back, which came back with…nothing. Surprise Surprise. So I then got called in on Tuesday to get an ultrasound, which while I’m getting it the ultrasound tech says “Honey, have you been having a lot of cramping and pain?” Why yes…yes I have…I then ask if something is wrong and she says “Oh Hun, I’m not a doctor, I just take the pictures” then why the hell did you ask me!?

 

After the ultrasound I wait in my doctors office, he comes in and says “Well, your mirena has slipped down out of place, but is stuck on your cervix, we are going to have to take it out right now, go ahead and get changed into a gown” and leaves. What!? It moved?? Great!

 

The doctor comes back in and says “this is probably going to hurt, but try to relax”. Relax? Sureeee. I try to relax as best I can as he RIPS my Mirena out with freaking pliers! taking a chunk of…i don’t know, skin? with it. Oh…my..God..it hurt SO bad. 

After I had quit crying and gotten my clothes back on, he comes back in and tells me the Mirena being out of place could have affected my hormone levels, and I would need to get a blood test, and if the results came back normal I would need to get another form of BC asap so my body wouldn’t go into whats known as “mirena crash”. Lovely.

I go back into the doctor on Friday (yep, 3rd time that week, thanks God my deductible was met eh?) and he tells me that my hormone levels were a little off, but he thought getting a replacement BC in would level them out. I went with the Implanon, which is a little tube that is shoved into your arm. 

 

This is 3 hours after I got the Implanon but in, that band-aid is covering up the incision they cut to put in the tube in. OW! Hopefully  I will have better luck with this. Why can’t they make guys do this!?

 

So that has been my week, I’m determined to have a good weekend to make up for it! Heading to the Pumpkin Patch today, and then to see Paranormal Activity tomorrow! Everyone have a great day!
