Thirty Six

Today is my birthday. I am 36 today. Yup.
A few weeks ago my plan was to have some peeps over to celebrate the last birthday that I would be responsible for only myself, but that never happened. I don't have a lot of room for focus these days. I am preoccupied with work and getting ready for this baby. I am not sad that I didn't have a last hurrah because I don't want to think that this baby will change my life for the worse but for the better. I have been waiting and dreaming about her for a long time, I cannot wait to meet her and see her and tell her all kinds of secrets and dreams. So instead I woke up to a delicious breakfast cooked by my hubby with some super tasty coffee (half caf). My mom stopped by to give me a hug and spend some time with me and my mother in law talking about what we need for this beauty that is coming into our lives. Hubby and I were supposed to go out to lunch or dinner but cuddling on the sofa and talking about the future seemed like a better choice at the time. Then we indulged with a double chocolate fudge cake, YUMMY!!!
Life is good and calm and we are happy.
Thank you to all my family and friends for all the amazing birthday wishes. I am the luckiest gal in the world.


30 weeks!

Getting there!


January out February in

Not that I don't love every month, but February is one of my faves. Of course it is because it is my birthday but it is also the shortest and brings us closer to spring... which I am desperately awaiting.
Not much to report. It's been cold... like seriously cold lately and we had a little snow last week but other than that not much to report. Here are some lazy musings of life...
  • I was at a conference for the second half of the week last week. It was good, but not great. I think I had super high expectations of getting all the answers in one convenient place. When does that ever happen.
  • I am now 7 months preggo and officially in the 3rd trimester. Wahoo. 
  • The days are getting longer and that is so wonderful; even though it is only a minute or so a day. I'll take it!! March 10, I am ready!!!!!
  • My mom moved closer to me. This has been a while in the making and it is great. She lives a few minutes down the road in a great apartment and seems to be loving it. I love that she is closer so I can see her whenever I want. The down side is that she wants to see me all the time. Who can blame her!?! No really it is wonderful and I love hanging out with her.
  • My hubby painted the baby's room while I was at my conference last week and it looks great. He did a GREAT job. I realize now that it is the same exact color as the bathroom. Maybe we will paint that next. :) 
  • We ordered the baby furniture last week. All I need is a rocker. Any comments/ suggestions? Do I need one? I know that I want to avoid feeding in bed as much as possible. We sleep on a sleep number bed and it doesn't seem like it will be comfortable for feeding. 
  • I really really really need to make that goals list. Ha! I know that it is a priority to start wading through the stuff in the basement to see what is and isn't there... I just can't seem to get around to it. This might be a problem. But the bigger problem is that I don't want any help and I DON'T want anyone to do it for me. 
  • My car is covered in salt and looks terrible. I absolutely hate getting my car washed. Especially in the winter. I am so lazy.....
  • Saturday night we had a surprise visit from some friends from college. It was so fun to get together and have dinner and laugh and tell stories and just be....
  • I know I already mentioned that my birthday is coming up. I'm not sure if I want to celebrate or not. I am really on the fence about it. I love to get together with friends and have a good time I just hate that the reason would be my birthday...
Okay. Enough for now.
