I’m finally finding some time to write, and considering it’s been months since I got around to posting, I thought it would be beneficial to do a post solely on some changes that have happened since my last post. Get ready for the chaos!
First and foremost, Justin and I will be welcoming our first baby this July! We are having a boy and could not be more excited, even though everyone can probably guess that I was praying for a girl. Honestly, I’m just happy we have a healthy baby, and feeling thankful that the pregnancy has been smooth, recently. Definitely stay tuned for a post all about my pregnancy – from the moment we found out we were expecting, up until now AKA 23 weeks pregnant. And of course I’ll be posting about all things mom once our little one is here.
Next, Justin and I added a new fur-baby to our family, Barry. He’s about four months old and I don’t know how we lived without him. That being said, puppy ownership hasn’t been without a few bumps in the road, so expect a post about everything Barry – from health concerns to training, and how we’ve handled every adventure that comes with puppy parenting. Believe me, there are several.
You now might be wondering where we plan on keeping all these new additions to the Minman Family, and with that, we also just recently moved into our new home. Going from a two-bedroom apartment, to a room at my in-laws, to a four-bedroom home has been quite something. We are finally getting settled and WILL NEVER MOVE AGAIN. Look forward to posts regarding how I’m (sorta) managing to keep up with our new home. As much as I would like to tell you I will be posting cute DIY projects on here, I will not be. Most of our furniture is from Walmart, and I have to wait for Jus to get home to assemble it.
Finally, as far as my career goes, it’s basically on hold at this point. Yupp, I’m not working. GASP! After finishing my master’s in under two years, while working full-time, and managing everything else life seemed to throw at us, I am finally taking a much needed break. Those who know me are well aware that this is the most difficult transition I’ve gone through, so you can expect posts on how I’m spending my “free time”, the real reasons why I’m taking a break, and the emotions that come with a workaholic taking time off.
SO, those are just a few of the changes that have taken place over the past few months. Luckily we’ve made the ultrasound tech confirm multiple times that there is only one baby in me, because yes, with our usual chaos I expected there to be twins.
I’m super excited for the upcoming year and I can’t wait to share it all with you. Any particular life event you just can’t wait to hear about? Let me know via WordPress or Facebook! 🙂
