Lacee of Mommas Like Me!!!

She even has an AWESOME lovely to giveaway today!!
So be sure to enter and leave her some bloggie love! 
I’m over at her place today FYI! 😉

Here’s Lacee!

Hello there all you lovelies! I am so excited to be here guest posting on Truly Lovely! I was completely honored when sweet Kassi asked me to be a bloggie bestie. *blush* Isn’t she just a doll?

Allow me to introduce myself… My name is Lacee and I’m a 29 year old stay-at-home momma, wife and newbie blogger. My son Carter is 5 and is the apple of my eye. Although there are some days when he drives me completely nuts {like THIS} he’s a definite keeper. My hubby Josh and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary! I am so very blessed to be married to such a wonderful man and incredible father to our son. He’s a keeper too 😉 


As for blogging, I’ve been doing it for only about 3 months now but I absolutely love it. I started my blog, Mommas Like Me, based on the idea that “us mommas need to stick together.” I really do believe that. Motherhood is a tough journey, and there is nothing more comforting than knowing that others can relate to what you are going through.
And that you are not alone.

Through my blog I hope to inspire, encourage and support other mommas and bring mommas from everywhere together. If you visit Mommas Like Me you’ll also see that I blog about a lot of other things as well; recipes {especially desserts!}, craft tutorials, coping with the loss of both my parents, and whatever else happens to be on mind. So I hope you’ll take a minute or two to stop by and say Hi! I would love to get to know you better and make some new friends!

Now on to the real story…

A few weeks ago, I was having “one of those days.” You know, the kind where you just feel completely overwhelmed by EVERYTHING. Negativity set in and I started dwelling on all that I’m not, and all I don’t have…
This blogging thing will never work. Maybe I should just quit. I’ll never be as good as “her.”
I wish my parents were still here. I miss them. I still needed them.
Why did I miscarry my first pregnancy? Is it my fault? Could I have done anything differently?
I haven’t been to the gym in so long. I’m starting to put on weight again and feel like a frump.
Are we going to be able to pay all our bills this month?
Am I letting my son and my husband down?
Am I failing?
Am I a good enough mom? Wife?
Am I a good enough ME?

By this time I’m in tears. I sit down at the computer. The screen in black. I shake the mouse to wake it up. On my screen appears my “words” board on Pinterest. Little words of encouragement that I’ve pinned for when I need them the most. Things like…


I cry even more, but start to feel a little better. I then open up my email to check out the latest GroopDealz {a good deal always brightens my day}. This bracelet appears on my screen…


Bracelet is from Hope of My Heart Designs. Click HERE to visit their website.
In that very moment, those two little words, “so blessed,” completely changed my day and my attitude. It reminded me that I have SO MUCH to be thankful for…
My beautiful, healthy family who loves me for who I am.
Having had amazing parents who taught me so much and always showed me unconditional love.
Friends who have been there for me through the best of times and the worst and who still continue to support me.
The new friends that I have made through my blog who continue to support it and encourage me with their words.
My body, though not perfect, enables me to take care of the ones I love and pursue my passions.
My faith and the fact that even at my worst, God always sees the best in me.

I had to have this bracelet. It was meant to be. I wanted it to serve as a reminder for me. So that the next time Negative Nelly rears her ugly head I can look at it and remember that I am indeed… 
“SO BLESSED”

So because I believe in sharing the things that I love and the things that inspire me, I am going to be GIVING AWAY one of these bracelets to one Truly Lovely reader! My hope is that you’ll wear it and remember all the ways that you are blessed too.
