Hazel J Premuda. Too cool for school since 2014. #hjpmuda #12weeks

There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound.
— Diana Cortes (via sidebraids)

I firmly believe that starting our long distance is what allowed josh and I to truly get to know one another and to communicate beyond the physical. It also gave us much needed time a part. I really believe that to have a lasting relationship, you have to make time for yourself, by yourself.

While it sucked at the time, I’m so thankful for our start and the concrete foundation it created.

PSA of the day. 
seeing as how self employed+unpaid maternity leave=no extra cash to blow on overpriced hair products, i took to the shelves of my grocery store and i have to say, i’ve fallen in love. twice. with suave. you read that right. 
it started with their keratin color care duo which i still LOVE. and recently i picked up the above for breakage, because…postpartum hormone-induced breakage has officially struck. 
but let’s be honest, i bought both of them because they smell awesome, don’t make my hair feel like straw when i wash out the shampoo (am i the only one who gets totally grossed out by that?!), and they’re really really cheap.

  • my amazing OB: meghan, you’re doing great. you’re only a few pounds away from your pre-pregnancy weight.
  • Me: …blank stare/blink…
  • MAOB: yeah…it’s not the same, is it?

fitting back into your favorite non-maternity jeans (albeit a bit snug) is an indescribably blessed feeling. amiright?

and i’m not even talking “oh i feel so skinny” type of feeling. we’re not there, yet. for me, it’s an “oh thank god, one step back to my normal self” feeling. 

After waking early from both her naps yesterday (seriously, isn’t that the best?), my child had me up every hour last night. This can’t be real life.

But seriously, should I be worried about her lack of sleep?

We packed up the baby this morning for her first road trip to Ohio. Josh’s parents are in town from Houston and seeing as how we haven’t spent time with them since our wedding, a visit was necessary. Plus she had Premuda cousins to meet. 

Hazel did SO well on the drive. It wasn’t until dinner and our drive to the hotel that she lost her shit. I can’t blame her. We got into our room and I took her out to feed her and whaddayaknow? All she wanted to do was stretch out and kick her sweet little legs. #presh I cried bc I was so proud of how well she did today. #shutupimsotired

Currently josh is next door visiting with his parents while I’m trying to get an overtired baby to go to sleep on a hotel couch. #prayforme
