Where Have I Been?!

Oct 3, 2011

I hate hate hate taking such long blog breaks. But this hasn't been by choice, friends.

My ginormous work event has finally come and gone and I can breathe a sigh of relief...until we start planning the next (smaller, thankfully) event in a couple months. So here's a random list of what's been going on around these parts!

-We've started looking for our new place. We're grateful to my parents for letting us stay with them but 2 1/2 months is long enough. We thought we'd last until January but I don't think we can. We want to spend as much time as possible together ALONE before bebe and really, I'd just like my own space again dammit!

-But you know what, house hunting sucks. We're only renting (until Ronnie finishes school) so we want to be picky but really can't be, ya know? It's not our forever or even 5 year house so I know I just have to accept what's good for us right now.

-If you're my Twitter friend, you already saw this pic..but let me just say again, I am OBSESSED with my Erin Condren planner. This planner just makes me want to be extra organized! It's kinda huge but I love it anyway and I catch myself desperate to make any sorta plan so I can write it in. ha! #loser

-Spending nearly 2 weeks in Louisville really messed with my allergies. I'm still not over the stuffiness and today, I started with a weezy cough and chest pain. Please lord, I cannot get sick.

-Besides feeling yucky, I'm just glad the weather has cooled down some. It's feeling very much like a Texas fall and I am loving it!! Let's just hope it sticks around.

-I turned 29! And it was a lousy birthday to say the least. I flew out on my birthday and then had to celebrate that night with my annoying co-workers. ha! But no biggie, there'll be more to come. Especially since next year, we'll have a little 7 month old hanging out with us :)

-And speaking of that baby....guess what? ..................

61% of you were right...It's a GIRL!!!!! :D

She actually cooperated and showed "herself" the weekend before I left for my trip (I paid for a private ultrasound outside the doctor's office because I'm that impatient) and then the doctor's office confirmed it last week. I was in shock at first  but I should've trusted my initial instinct - I've always known it was a girl <3

Baby V. is so loved and already has some cute outfits waiting for her!

(sorry for crappy quality but you get the idea!)

So that's about it! Bear with me while I catch up on reading my 1000+ undread blog posts.

I hope all of you are doing wonderful and I'm sooo looking forward to getting back into the blogging groove! Happy Monday, y'all!

I've missed you! Glad to see you <3

So excited for you & baby girl & your new little family. <3

I've been wanting a new planner :( I think I have a 5x7 but want a bigger one, but it won't fit my smaller bags :( I'm so picky... I go thru like 3 a year :(

You know, I was (maybe not so) secretly hoping you'd have a girl so we can be even more of preggo twinsies!! I am SOOOOOO FRIGGGIN EXCIIIIITED FOR YOUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!! And I've missed your blog posts. The end.

Dana Richards said...

Yay yay yay yay! Welcome back! I was hoping you would get to announcing whether that little nugget was a boy or a girl, so psyched for you!!!

Cole said...

HURRAY!!!!!! I had a feeling that babe was a girl. :-)

And, welcome back. I've missed you!!!!

Christina said...

Awww, congrats on baby V! I don’t know what her name is, but I love it already, starting with that letter. You’ve been so busy. Sorry your birthday sucked. I gotta say, with kids, they don’t too get much better. Well, it’s just a different kind of celebration, let’s say that. I have been eyeing those planners for a while now, but I don’t think I can make the leap to a paper planner. My iPhone is on me all the time, so that’s what I use. So what’s a Texas fall like? 85 degrees? Hahaha. Glad you’re back!

Too bad we didn't get our acts together bc Louisville is way closer to me than Texas :( we could have met up!

Chloe said...

First of all, welcome back! I was just thinking about you the other day.

Second, YAY!!! I'm so excited you are having a girl too!! I know she's just going to be precious :D Congratulations!

I'm glad your life is slowing down a bit and I hope your allergies get better soon.

Mrs. W. said...

Yay for a baby girl! I'm excited to hear that your instinct was right because I've had a hunch about my little one and I'm dying to see if I'm right. :)

Happy belated birthday, too!

Amanda said...

Yay, you're back!! I was actually just thinking yesterday that you hadn't posted in forever and I was wondering how your little baby was doing. Congrats on your baby girl!
