Pregnancy Versus Eyebrow Shaping

Lana had a writing challenge that I just read about. I have two hours until the deadline… I will make it! Lana’s idea is to go down nostalgia lane. Please check out what she wrote here. I also like what Jenni wrote for this challenge, in fact I am checking out a book she mentioned right now. You can read her post here. Thank you for motivating me!

As I understood, the challenge is to think of a “happy time”. I know that my husband would also agree that for both of us it is a great “memory” when I finally became pregnant without a miscarriage. So I started looking at the pictures I took of myself and of my husband every single day of my (our) pregnancy and I was feeling bubbly and joyful inside until I thought of the context I would write in. It would have been logical to write about the ten IUI-s and about the previous time, before we met with doctors. And it became clear to me that I still feel a lot of anger inside me. We were not encouraged to try some more on our own, after a whole year of no success and though I do not know for sure but this might have been a big mistake. It is not something I should dwell on but maybe it is easier on my soul if I feel nostalgic over the times when I liked the shape of my eyebrows.

This is me taken by me. I had to use my eyebrow gel to make my eyebrows look darker. I asked the hairdresser to match it up with my roots that I had her color yesterday. I also asked her to make me look similar to Zoárd. Double my fault. HAHA

Image
If you are new to my blog: He is Zoárd, our lovely baby. 

Image
I like my thin eyebrows here and we look like a nice couple. Which we are, I am not saying we are not anymore… HAHA

Image
I know, I know… You cannot see my eyebrows on this picture… but it is a nice dress I am wearing, wouldn’t you agree?!

Image
There! Thin eyebrows and blond hair. Are you staring at something else?!

Image
I am starting to be very random. Here is a picture of me when I was young. Very young. Are you starting to understand why Zoárd is dressed so colorfully?! 

Do you find yourself focusing on other topics when something is difficult for you to talk about?

How True Are You To Yourself ?

I had a dilemma giving a title to this post. I was planning on expressing both with words but mostly with pictures some of the things I have done lately focusing on anything that is new to me at the moment. I was going to jump right in and share with You my new phone. And then Heather found my blog and asked me if I were able to share a link to her blog which raises awareness to a disease that can be prevented. Namely, it is Asbetos Awareness Week. You can read about it more here.

Recently, Zoárd had the fortune to see both his grandmothers. Because of these visits, I defined who I am in many situations I think. There was an exercise we did in one of my psychology classes back in my university years. You had to finish the sentence “I am….” ten times. Go ahead, grab a pen or your keyboard and give it a try…

I AM…

Image
… a thoughtful person. This is over-rated by me but I like remembering the little things mentioned by others. Zoárd does not “mention” yet what is important to him but I try to notice anyways. I scrubbed, washed and dried his green shoe because it is his teddy bear.

Image
Back to the green shoe a bit: if anyone knows where I can purchase more of it, please let me know. It was originally a present given by my sister and she found the pair at an Irish pub. But one got lost…

Image
… a lover of my two men. My little man was visiting my big man at his school.

Graduation picture!!!

Image
… a friend. I would like to be a better friend so I am sending out flying kisses right now to all my friends. And just so it is clear. I had my first hot dog. 

Image
If you would like to know how my meat eating started, I suggest you read how I waved good-bye to being a vegetarian.

And one more thing: this is a tofu hot dog!!! So sorry! I meant to eat a real one but I thought they would have a chicken hot dog or a beef hot dog… 

Image
… a healthy person. We could start debating on what counts as being healthy but what I would really like to shout out loud is:
I bought a membership and I started swimming again!!!! 

Image
… a supporter. I take this role very seriously. I am hoping that I can help without being controlling. I let Zoárd find his own path. 

Image
… curious. I deliberately did not write open-minded because that would have sounded strange. Let me explain. This is my new phone and this is the first time I am the owner of a touch screen phone. Obviously, I was among the conservative telephone owners. So how open-minded can I be, right?! It was time for me to embrace this new experience and with many things I was curious enough to say yes, please!

Image
And I also said yes to sea weed. It is our first time cooking with it. You see, it is not part of the typical Hungarian cuisine… 

Image
And a curious mommy can raise a curious child… 

Image
… playful. Why am I adding more and more pictures of Zoárd when I am trying to explain who I think I am?! Well, I have more pictures of him being cute and I am guessing I have something to do with the fact that he loves playing with a box of tea in his snowman shoes… HAHA
I wrote a very sweet post on playfulness. Modesty is not on my list, OK?! HAHA You can read the post here.

Alright, I stop here. I am looking forward to all comments. Stay true to yourself!!!
