I am a full time SAHM and I LOVE my job almost all the time ;) I have a deep love for photography and would love one day to turn my hobby into a profession. I've recently decided that I need to go back to school and have been making small steps in that direction. If all goes as planned and a few key things fall into place I will soon be returning to the JC to START to FINISH my pre-reqs to one day apply to the nursing program!
In the mean time Im enjoying being home with my children
RuPaul was a little bored at home, he is anxiously awaiting Marys graduation so that they can hit the town! He asked if he could come visit us, So we gladly took him! We planned a trip to SF, he was really excited about it. It ended up being a rainy day but RuPaul was determined to have some fun, and we didn't want to disappoint him so we went to SF anyways.
He started having a great time right away,
Making friends with all the shrimps at Bubba Gumps!
He wanted to make sure that he got to take his picture in "Forrests Shoes" so we obliged!
He was having a REALLY hard time deciding what he wanted to eat.....
So he decided that he would just drink his lunch!
Things got a little crazy after this, he started dancing on the table....
He made friends with "RED" our server!
After lunch we waked around the peer, he ran into some old friends!
We decided to head home cause RuPaul was getting a little tired
This pregnancy seems to be going a lot faster than the last! Im sure its because I dont have a lot of time to think about it! In all honestly I often FORGET that Im pregnant!! I never thought that was possible! But Im grateful to be busy chasing around my little ball of energy, she keeps me on my toes for sure!
In just 11 days we will find out (hopefully) what little baby Scout is! Im so excited to see this baby on the ultrasound. I have had 3 dr appts where we have been able to hear a very healthy heartbeat, and 1 ultrasound at 7 weeks....there is not much to see at 7 week except a little flutter that is the heartbeat! So Im so excited to see little scout and all its features! We are hoping for a boy, but we will be grateful for a healthy baby no matter the sex!
So far with the exception of a few weeks of being nauseous Its been great! Im hoping it continues this way!
This Picture was taken approximately 2 years ago this week. Steven and I took a very unplanned and last minute trip to Disneyland for out 1st Valentines as a married couple! This was possibly the 1st pic of me as "Pregnant". As were pretty sure savanna was concieved the night before!
Sometimes I look at this picture and think wow that seems like yesterday...and others times i think it was a lifetime ago.
The past 2 years have brought us so much. So much good, and of course a little bad. But that is just how it goes. With out the bad you would not appriciate the good!
As we sat on this tram to Disneyland if you would have asked me where I would be in 2 years I probably would have said that we would have a baby, be working, and gone back to school. Its quite far from where we are, Yes I had a baby, but Ive another on the way! I'm not working (out side the home at least), I haven't gone back to school as of yet, but I do have plans to take at LEAST 1 class this Fall! Its been a roller coaster ride these last 2 years, but i wouldn't trade 1 moment of it because that roller coaster has brought me RIGHT where I am today....And I'm RIGHT where I WANT to be!
"It's never the right time to have kids, but it's always the right time for screwing. God's not a dumbshit. He knows how it works."- shitmydadsays twitter!
I know its a little vulgar, but HILARIOUS and so true in our life right now!
We just found out Monday that we are expecting baby #2. CRAZY.
Timing is horrible, I'm out of work, fighting with unemployment, worried about paying bills, and now we are faced with the wonderfully scary situation of figuring out how to clothe and feed another child, how we will squeeze 3 children into our car since we cant afford a bigger car. and now im kicking myself for not keeping all of the bigger things like swings and such.
But at the same time, its probably the BEST time, I'm out of work and focusing on our children, unemployment will eventually start and we wont be as strapped, we will live within our means and provide for our family, we wont be rich but I know that there are many people out there struggling with less, I'm blessed to have a wonderful, hardworking husband that supports me and our family, he works for an amazing company that is family run and has embraced us as part of theirs. We live in a beautiful house, we both drive new cars, our children are HEALTHY, we love each other, and we really have everything we NEED. There will always be food on our table and gas in our cars even if we shop at the good will and dont wear designer clothes our house will always be filled with love.
I will learn to be more FRUGAL with our hard earned money, I will learn how to stretch every dollar to its fullest, be less wasteful, and learn to feed my husband leftovers! This will not be easy but it will have great rewards! I will have lots of time to spend with savanna and brynn before or little bundle of joy arrives, and Hopefully in the next seven months we will have a plan as to what comes next.
At first we were both very overwhelmed, But every baby is a blessing, So we will embrace this baby and this pregnancy with as much love and joy as the the last. And yes we are very much hoping for a boy, but as long as its healthy that is all that really matters!
We Find out next wednesday just how far along we are, since we were definitly not trying I wasnt keeping track and cant honestly remember when my last period was. Im hoping im about 8 weeks, that way they will be able to see a heartbeat and give me great estamation of a due date at my appointment!
Well now that im a stay at home mom (still getting used to that) I figure its probably a good idea for multiple reasons to get some projects done around here! Nothing to big, Im not bulding and arc or anything!
So here is my first project- The Dreaded Pantry!! It always seems that hisbands and kids tear threw here looking for a snack, or the husband puts the groceries away, and well if there is a space then thats where it MUST go Right? lol!!
here are the before-
Now, If I could just keep everyone out of it, It might actually stay this way :)
