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.
