So many of my readers have been long-time readers and so I thought it would be appropriate to share a glimpse of my "real life" with you. I know that I like to get to know the writers behind the blogs that I adore so here it goes, things are about to get real personal here...
It's recently dawned on me that a lot about life as I once knew it is changing, it's changing fast and these little life events have probably brought me to this realization:
1.) Planning my husband's 30th birthday party -that's right husband, I have a husband and we've been together for almost 9 years- where did that time go??
2.) We recently started looking into buying a home of our own.
3.) ...a home where we will raise our child, possibly children one day.
4.) I have a baby growing inside of me. Which by the way, is the coolest experience ever. I say that now that I'm in my 2nd trimester and over the always tired, constantly queasy feeling, and so on.
5.) My pink laptop that I used in college is starting to die. I have so many great memories of typing up papers on this baby while sitting in the lounge at Penn State. Granted, I got it in my Junior year and I graduated in 2009 so I understand it's long overdue. This is also the laptop that I used to create my very first blog post for this little blog of mine. So the thought of having to replace it soon, uggg the dreaded "r" word makes me sad. I love this laptop and I'm nostalgic, so what?
I'm leaning towards a Mac. Either the Mac mini or the iMac to be exact. Yes, I'm crossing over to the other side. Does anyone have a Mac? If so, which one and do you love it?
6.) My car is a two-door sporty coupe. I bought her almost 4 years ago during my last semester of college and I love my car. It was my first "big girl" purchase that I got all on my own (well besides furniture). BUT two-door coupe and baby just don't mix. So, here comes the next bout of nostalgia, not wanting to let go, etc., etc. Is a new car in my future? Maybe. I can tell you what isn't in my future, and that's a mini-van or station wagon. I simply can't do it. I've got to find some sort of compromise and whatever I get needs to have a sunroof.
If you've made it this far, congrats and thanks for reading!
I hope I didn't bore any of you too much.
