Happy Hour {Let's Chat}

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

The number of times that I have sat down to work on a blog post in the past month only to never hit the "publish" button, is ridiculous. 
Even now as I type this someone is starting to stir, and it will only be a matter of minutes until he awakes from his nap.

That, in a nutshell, is my life these days.
Desperately trying to complete a task before the little guy wakes up and immediately has to be changed/fed/cuddled {insert verb here}.
Babies are a full time job.

This Friday it will be 7 weeks since this adorable little guy came into our lives. 
That's 7 weeks of motherhood under my belt. 

SO much has happened in that short amount of time (both baby related and not). 

Every now and then it's nice to just catch up and share what's going on in our lives as well as whats currently on my radar.   

Other bloggers who I enjoy reading call their updates "coffee talk" or "talking dates," and it took me just a few minutes to come up with what I wanted to name my post of random updates:
Happy Hour

My blog is titled Pearls & Prosecco after all. 

So settle in, grab your drink of choice, and allow me to share what has been on my mind lately.

BOOBS: Yes, boobs have been on my mind. All day, every day. This tiny human's entire happiness, not to mention life, revolves around my boobs. Which means that my life also revolves around them.
Did he eat enough? What time was his last feeding? Which boob did he feed on last?  
Do I have time to drink a beer and have the alcohol leave my body before his next feeding?

Breastfeeding has been going fairly well for us. Some days it feels like we are pros, other days it's more of a struggle. It has been a learning process for the both of us, and I fully plan on sharing more about that later. 

WEIGHT LOSS: Last week I started working out again, and I'm still trying to figure out a routine that works with the little guy. I've got about 20 pounds to lose, but I really just want to fit back into my pre-pregnancy wardrobe. I've been posting more about this on twitter, so be sure to follow me: @PearlsProsecco

MILITARY LIFE: We are separating from the military. I don't have much to share as of now, but when we leave Italy we will also be leaving the Air Force behind as well.
Right now we are looking at relocating to Florida *fingers crossed*
I would LOVE to live near my family and for Jacob to have his Nana, Grandpa and Uncle Jeff close by. 

JACOB DOUGLAS: Obviously my life revolves around the little man, and I pretty much think he's the cutest thing on this earth. I take pictures of him daily because I'm obsessed, and I realize that everyone may not share my obsession (crazy people). BUT if you do, then you're in luck. I created this Tumblr page so that I could have a place to post and share my child's daily adorableness. 

NAUTICAL BABY STYLE: The majority of Jacobs wardrobe is from Baby Gap. My mom and I are pretty hooked on their clothes. The fabric is awesome quality, it holds up through many washes, and of course their styles are adorable.  Right now they have a new nautical line out and I LOVE it for spring. Plenty of stripes, whales, and anchors to style the little ones in.

That's what is currently happening in my neck of the woods. 
I hope to start blogging more regularly now that Jacob and I have (kind of) found a daily routine.
I have so many things that I want to share, so please stay tuned!


  1. oh, my goodness, he's adorable!! Ah! I would just squish his little face every minute! I know so many people getting out of the military in the next few years, it's crazy! I just hope some stay in so I can find friends every time we move!

  2. Your baby boy is so precious! SO excited for you to potentially relocate closer to your family!

  3. Oh my goodness!! He is SO unbelievably cute! Good luck with the relocation...my husband and I may be moving back to Florida as well. So exciting and enjoy the rest of your time in Italy!

  4. If you do move back to Florida we have to catch up!! Jacob (my little birthday buddy) is so cute, I want to meet him.
