I’ve been so busy, and mentally my mind is racing a million miles a minute. Some days I wonder how in the world I have time to blog–Ever! But I love it so much I just have to write something!
I was reading one of my journals the other day–One I kept right before and once I met my husband. It was funny reading what I thought about him when we first met. One thing I read that I thought was funny was how we were talking about “starting a family.” We were contemplating it not long after we got married. I was ok with the idea, but I still wanted to “finish school, start my career, go 4-wheeling, jet skiing, and visit another country.” I’ve done all of those things in the past year.
Next Tuesday we’ll have officially been married for four and a half years! It’s so crazy how time flies. Sometimes I still feel like a newlywed. One thing I’ve been thinking is I’m really going to kick up the notch with this Baby Bucket List of mine. I’m getting so much closer to turning my Baby Makin’ Machine on, I can taste it! I’ve got a sorta-deadline in mind to try to make a baby, and completed list or not–I’m getting busy!
Pertaining to the list and deadline–I have fun news and exciting things in store soon, and I can’t wait to put it all out here to share!
In other news, for the next little bit I’ve decided to spruce up some blog stuff around here. I know more of yall don’t visit my blog for the giveaways cause… Well, I don’t do many for one, and two… Frankly I think most of you like to help me out, give me advice and share your experiences rather than win a prize… Which is one reason I heart you!
One thing I want to do to show my gratitude I’m going to not only offer a feature the winner of the Mommy Moment contest, I’ll also give a prize to the winner! Yep! Right now I’m into necklaces so the July winner will win a necklace from Haber HeartWork’s Etsy Shop. I picked out this necklace for the winner:
It’s a scrabble tile measures approximately .75″ square. It’s sealed with an acid-free, non-toxic, clear gloss sealant for a brilliant shine. It’s handmade by the designer. The pendant includes free 18″ Nickel plated steel 2.4mm ball chain and connector-made in USA. And it arrives in cotton lined small gift box with heartwork sticker.
