I have decided that blogging is a much easier way for me to share my ridiculousness with the world. I am so excited! I feel like Creed from the Office...keep hoping that anyone who reads this doesn't think the same!
I would love to establish some really high expectations from this blog such as Biblican insights, noble thoughts & deeds, creative outlets, and pure entertainment, but I know better.... It will more than likely be the crazed ramblings of a sleep deprived, hormonal female for quite some time.
For those of you who know me, you probably know that I am pregnant with my first baby...a boy, which my husband is a wee bit more than excited about. I am thrilled, although, if you know me well, to imagine me with a boy would probably make you laugh out loud. Growing up, I was the babysitter that played dress up with all the kids and inspired 3 year old little girls to ask Santa Clause for "makeup". I was never what one would classify as a tom-boy. It's not as though I know nothing about boys...my sister has a little boy who I absolutely adore. But I never really imagined myself having a boy. I see it as an opportunity to explore a side of myself that I have never explored...Mommy of a little boy...sounds like a challenge--I LOVE IT!
Prior to giving birth to this little guy, though, I have set a few goals which I plan to accomplish. I plan to document my journey through these goals, so be prepared for amazingness.
1) Obviously, I have to finish getting this baby's room set up. We have already painted, but I still have to make curtains, dust, get a mattress for the crib, clean the crib, vacuum, wash all the baby clothes, clean out the closet.... Should be a weekend FULL of work. Another challenge! YES! (Double fist pump to emphasize my excitement)
2) Learn Beyonce's "Single Ladies" dance. I mean seriously, if some barely walking baby can do it, I should be able to as well. And how hilarious would it be to see me, as huge as I am now, in a leotard and high heels? Even bigger challenge! (No fist pump can convey my sheer delight over this idea)
3) Finish Christmas shopping and baby shopping without busting the bank. My husband has become rigorously involved with reading our credit card bills and wanting to know what every purchase I made 60+ days ago was for, so I MUST accomplish this! He thinks we should be "surviving" rather than "living". Let me just say, I think this will be my largest challenge to date. Not as excited about this one, although it does mean that I get to use Excel to the max, so "Cha-ching" (with a single fist pump from the early 90's for this one)
Wish me luck!!!
