Time is flying by just a few short days ago I was scambling to find time to get a blog posted and here I am again trying to get my post in for the week. Things are moving along, been extremely exhausted with work and keeping up with house work, laundry, dishes, the dog, and the cat. I'm surprised I'm finding time to do this. Work has been a pain. I'm a full time hostess, which isn't much work-at all. But being 8 months pregnant after sometime it takes a toll on my body physically. I'm dead tired, I have to force myself up everyday to tend to daily life/house work. However, I'm doing my best and right now thats good enough for me. I do get motivation & even at times feel bad for being a baby because I've seen two of my co-workers (who both has physically demanding jobs) pull through working their entire pregnancy so after looking at them succeed I know I can do this. I'm remainding positive in the things I'm going thru good & bad. Not that very much is bad, but if thrown my way I'm taking it with a positive attitude. I've got so much on my plate right now it's all overwhelming and I'm trying to not get too worried or stressed I'm just thankful I'm not handling this all on my own.

What I've learned this week: I can do anything I put my mind to, despite negitivity. If I remain positive it makes my daily tasks of life that much easier. Lastly, treat others the way you'd like to be treated.

It's my first post of the New Year so here goes nothing or everything. 2012 a New Year and a new beginning, I'm sure that's what everyone is thinking. For the most part I've been dealing with alot of new beginnings since the August of last year. I just had found out I was pregnant for the first time and my life did a complete 360 degree turn around. I've enjoyed most of it for the first part, learning new facts about pregnancy, comparing my experience to those mothers around me. Sharing all the new expections, anticipations, and excitement with my most loving wonderful boyfriend Avery. We had been so excited finding out we were expecting our first child together then came tiredness, morning sickness, and mood swings. All the excitement went out the window, until now 8 months pregnant knowing that within a few short weeks we will have our very own baby in our hands. Excitment is back with alot of anxiousness. I hope we are ready, but they say no one is ever ready for their first baby you just gotta go with the punches.

it right? With that said I will be back before the week is over to
to do my first blog of 2012 :) Tootles!

The Fast Track

September is coming to a close, I can't believe how fast the year has gone by. Just a few months ago, I was anxious for my birthday (which was just a couple days ago), and now I'm patiently waiting for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. All my favorite holidays of the year. Before I know it I'll be giving birth. Time is going by way too fast. Looking back on this year, I have done so much, seen so much, and my life is only getting busier. But I'm grateful for everything, I'm grateful for a loving boyfriend, a supportive family, and caring friends. I'm grateful to have a job, and soon enough success will be underway once I figure out a good school schedule to take on. I'm really looking forward to going back to school, its been 3 years, and with the changes going on in my life I need stablity and a career. We all have to start somewhere. Priorities are changing, new responsibilites are arising, and I'm ready to buckle down to better my life for my family. Wish me luck on my new challanges, I pray for nothing but a good outcome. I pray for strength because we all know the good comes with the bad. Good night!

Busy Bee!

Hello friends,

I have been super busy, sorry I have not updated in awhile. I'm also very exhausted. Things are moving a long slowly, I have been having a few complications, but nothing to life threatening. I been back to work for a week now and thats been a little tough, but I'm managing.
I'm 17 weeks, and feeling more energized lately. My eating habits are a bit crazy. I'm always so hungry in the morning so I'll eat a bowl of cereal or eggs. I was craving fish, fried fish that is but I haven't had a chance to eat any. I'm now craving a baked potato with cheese & sour cream & of course salt. I want to eat salt with everything!! I know its bad for me and I been told that the more I eat salt the more swelling I'll get later and not to mention high blood pressure. I've been good at managing, but the more I don't have it the more I want it so that's a struggle.
Because I was put on bedrest for a week being back at work has been hard. I find myself more sluggish and tired just knowing that I have to stand for 7 hours a day so I'm trying to think positive while I'm at work to make it less harder on myself. We are really busy on Friday & Saturday nights as it is a casino but I'm surprising myself and managing everything to the best of my ability. I can't afford to take time off so what more can I do.
Things on the home front are good. This past weekend I was able to get ALL ten baskets of laundry washed, dried, folded, AND put away. For that I'm proud of myself. :) Thank God I have a loving boyfriend who cooks for me everyday so I'm not a manic in the kitchen everyday. I have a dog & cat who can't stand one another but I still manage to keep them under control as well. My cat however is begging for more affection. She now has made her way to sleeping with me, and my sleeping sitition is not all that great so when I move she moves so I'm hoping to kick her out the bed soon.
I'm not really showing much of a baby bump but its getting there. I say in two weeks everyone will notice it. I'll keep ya updated with everything as time moves along. Good night!

Big News!!!!

I'm excited to announce to the world that my boyfriend Avery & I are expecting our first baby!! I decided to start blogging again. I want to capture everything I'm experiencing, and so far it's been a roller coaster of a ride but I love every minute of it.
So we found out we were expecting about four weeks ago, and boy was it a surprise. I knew something was going on with my body, but the thought wasn't "I think I'm pregnant". After a few weeks of "I think I'm going to puke" and sleeping so much I had to pry myself from my pillow, I knew I had to get checked. I did a few at home pregnancy tests that all came up positive to our surprise before I went into the doctors office for confirmation. As it turns out, I was 10 weeks pregnant! Our first reaction was tears of joy, I was unsure if I wanted kids now or later but now that its happening I wouldn't have any other way. Avery cried, he is unbelievably happy to becoming a first time father. Im excited, we are excited.
So, there you have it we have a baby bun cooking in the oven.
