9 Weeks and counting
Okay right now, I really should be doing homework. I really don't like the middle of the semester, it's like all of the sudden you become bogged down with homework and tests and life is no longer fun. I don't know why I never counted down the weeks in a semester. I guess since counting weeks goes a lot faster, and I'm doing it now with this pregnancy that it seems things in school are going fast, but then with the pregnancy they are going really slowly!
Here is an updated picture though- 31 weeks. Only 9 left! I can do 9, that actually seems kind of short. Except when I consider that I'm not wearing my normal clothes . . . it was kind of sad the other day I went through my closet separating things, from clothes I definitely didn't want to stretch out and clothes that I could wear. The clothes I can wear pile mostly consists of button up and zip up sweaters.
James and I had a really fun Valentines Week I should say. We found out that my aunt Katie was coming in for the weekend from Maryland, so we celebrated it throughout the week. For instance, on Monday we used a gift card to Cheesecake Factory and went out to eat. Then on Friday we went and saw Dear John- again with a gift card! Isn't it so fun doing things for free?!?! I love it! And we basically spent Saturday and Sunday with my aunt Karen and my aunt Katie. It was really fun to spend time with Katie, because she is that much older than me, and so I've always felt really close to her. Plus she's having a baby, less than 10 weeks after me- and it's going to be a little girl. It'll be fun, but kind of funny to think that her baby will be my cousin. It makes it all fun though!
Also another big thing for me, my cousin Shea is getting married in the beginning of June. I'm really excited because I feel like I've been the odd one out being the only one married, so I won't be alone ;) Just kidding, but really it will be fun. Also I am doing her flowers for her wedding. I'm excited, it's always something I thought was really fun, and with the experience I've had, I am now going to start a portfolio. I love doing it and I think it would be really easy to do while being a mom to earn some money without leaving the home. So I'll definitely post pictures. But, if you know anyone who wants to get their wedding flowers done at a great price- I'd love to be referred! But, I'm excited to do the first whole wedding. I did the boutonnieres and corsages at my own wedding. And made a friend a bouquet for her bridal pictures, but I won't have done a full wedding- until June that is.
James is finishing up his applications. I think he's going to send the rest of them off this week, so we should know in a month or so where we're going. It seems so odd to be hanging in the balance of where we'll be next year, but it's also kind of exciting too! I think those are all of our updates for now!
