an update

Hi. Life is good and busy and mysterious and hard...but mostly good. We've been hectic around here for a while and have been sick for over a month now between the 3 of us. I plan on getting back on the blogging bandwagon quite soon here. I miss it. I miss my bloggy friends. I'm hundreds of posts behind in my reader. I peeked for 5 minutes the other day and 6 of you are now pregnant! So happy and a little bit jealous. Though, the timing is not right here.

 I should be going back to work within the next few days here. I got a job at a local mortgage company doing loan processing and am looking forward to having a bit of a schedule implemented in my life. I can't begin to describe how painful the thought of leaving Cole is but it is a very good job offer and now is actually really good timing. I have family who are happy and eager to get more time with Cole and it will be good for him to have more of them in his life.

 Cole is a learning and growing fool. He is our constant entertainer. Even now, he is singing along with a lullaby book while playing the drums in the corner. I am working on his 1.5 year post so I will actually have it done on January 3rd. Its already been almost 6 months from his birthday. How did that happen? I still haven't unpacked the last few boxes of decorations. Though, they're rain soaked and the construction paper probably bled color all over everything so I should just toss it all.

 I lost 30 lbs! I did it in a controversial way so I haven't talked about it much but I am so happy I did it. I've had hypoglycemia since the age of 7. That is so much better with the weight loss. I sleep better at night, have more energy during the day and am all around happier (death flu virus aside). It was hard but I'm proud of myself for sticking with it. I went down almost 3 pants sizes and can't wait to loose the last 30 after the holidays so I can get back into my sixes!

 Anyway, I look forward to getting back into this so I can keep all of my far away friends and family in the loop. Talk to you soon!

About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
