HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
I can’t believe that today I am actually thirty years old! The big 3-0 is here. I am officially out of the “transition zone”- from when my single life merged with my married, “all-grown-up”, mommy life. There is no looking back, it’s ALL adulting from here on in.
As I look back on the last 10 years of my life, I can do nothing but smile. I went from a young single woman, living on her own in a one bedroom apartment, to a married, mommy of one. During this time I have had many ups and downs, good times and bad- from loss of my two dear grandparents to the joys of marrying TJ and witnessing the birth of our firstborn son, Landon. I have learned what it is like to live independently, depending on my own income and learning how to budget. I have gained valuable experience in the healthcare field, working as a nurse for over 8 years now! I have been back and forth to Europe over a handful of times + have had my ‘fair share’ of traveling and exploring this amazing world we live in.
Although my twenties were amazing, I know my thirties will be just as great- if not better! I look forward to growing our family and finding our “dream house” to live, in an area where we feel most at home. I am excited to see what the next 10 years has in store for me and am hopeful that the coming years will be some of my best years yet!
Here’s to THIRTY!
This week marks week 26. Time is flying! On Thursday I will be 27 weeks already- so close to the third trimester! I am feeling GREAT. My belly is definitely growing bigger and bigger as each day goes by. Baby S is more active than ever. We have ‘mommy and me time’ every night around 9pm, when I come home from work and lay down on the couch. He is very active at this time and even lets dad see and feel his movements! Below is an update from week 24 and week 26.
Today is TJ’s birthday! He turns 27 years old! We are celebrating tonight by having some friends over for dinner and to watch one of our favorite shows together. This weekend we celebrated TJ’s birthday by going to his favorite restaurant called E&V. I had his brother Jesse and my sister in law, meet us there as a surprise. It was a great dinner spending time together with our family. Before dinner, we took a pit stop at the Paterson Falls. It was SO hot out, so we took a quick walk and then ran back to the car [remember, I am pregnant and hot weather = a no no! 😉 ]
Other things going on have just focused around setting up the baby’s nursery. I will show some “sneak peaks” below. This week the crib should arrive, which should pull the room together even more! Our friends and family have been spoiling us with gifts (already) and we have been able to fill the room with lots of clothes and toys. We have been so blessed by everyone around us, we have really been so spoiled. This baby is loved so much already!
Until the next bump-date!
