Conversation #180: Babies

If you are following along with Misty's Christmas Link-up party, then you may know that my 6th post ever on this blog was a conversation about babies and how I was so not ready for one.  Check it all out here!

Well, my how things have changed in a couple of years (well not quite two).  Now I am longing for a baby like crazy - I want nothing more than to be pregnant!  See, I told everyone eventually I would be ready to not be ready.  I know once a baby comes, I will be freaked out and wonder how I will care for that little life, but I am so ready for that.

You see, back a couple of years ago my husband was still in law school, and A LOT has changed since then.  He graduated, passed the bar, started and now runs a successful solo practice, I took the PE exam and passed, got a promotion, and we moved to a bigger house ready to fill with kids!  God has been so good and gracious and blessed us so much over the last couple of years - none of the above would have been possible without Him!  Now I am trying to remember to trust Him and His perfect timing (it has all been perfect so far) when it comes to babies and getting pregnant.  We have only been trying for a couple of months so it isn't like we are in the throes of infertility.  I am not freaking out or anything.  I am just impatient and want to be pregnant now, so I know I need surrender that to Him and let it be in His time and in His perfect way.

Anyway, I just thought it would be kind of fun to update on the whole baby thing since it has pretty much made 180 since that 6th post.

How about the rest of you?  Have you taken a look back to see where your brain was in the beginning?  It has been kind of fun!

P.S.  If you read my 5th post about Missions and traveling - here is a little update.  We have yet to take a Missions trip outside of the country, but I do hope to someday.  We did get to take a little trip to the Dominican Republic to visit friends and celebrate being done with law school and the bar exam (so I have a passport now!)  Of course, that was a fun touristy trip, but we did get to see some of the local areas while driving to and far - just seeing how they live and getting to hear about it from my friend who is from there is enlightening to hear about how others live.  It also makes me truly grateful for this great country and having grown up here.  I really hope to not take that for granted and be thankful to that and God for His blessings daily!!!

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
