(I couldn't think of a more clever title to this post because honestly, I have no idea what I am going to blab about now)
Guess what... I'm 27 years young now! I have never been happier in my life, and I just wanted to let you know that this year will be an amazing year... watch!
My Husband and I finally moved into our new home a few months ago. We were on one heck of a roller coaster ride (a long one at that) on the house hunting/shopping. We found a house that we both love and are now busy making a house a home.
We're expecting our first child, a BOY this upcoming April. (He may be here as early as March, but we are still shooting for an April baby) Most Moms would know that this pregnancy is taking a toll on me and is zapping up all of my time and energy. Free time is spent snuggled up in bed, exactly where I want to be to embrace the little wiggles and kicks of my baby boy. Words cannot explain how much I love this little man already... I just can't wait to meet him! Less than four months to go, sweetie!
Work has been great... I couldn't have asked for better relationships with colleagues. I feel like we're a big ol' family, and that is so important to me when it comes to people that I will spend most of my time with. I earned an award in the company a couple of weeks ago... my first real plaque from a job. As you can see, I'm pretty proud of that. Hard work really does and should/will pay off... I'm a true believer of that.
I am reminded of how blessed I am everyday. Especially, on my birthday, of course! My family and friends are the best that anyone could ever ask for. I mean... who really gets 5 cakes in one day? (My coworker brought one to the office in the morning, had another cake at lunch when the company took me out to celebrate, and was surprised by my favorite cake from my Husband at my birthday dinner where two of my girlfriends also brought separate cakes for me) Needless to say, I will be caked out for awhile. I know that I sound like I am bragging. I mean, maybe I am... I am very proud to say that I am loved by wonderful people.
I'm flying back home for the holidays in 9 days. I can't wait to wake up and hang out with my parents, dim sum brunch with the family, sushi (cooked ones for me) dinners with my siblings, speed shopping sprees with my sisters, playtime and baking with and for my neices and nephews, and of course, slumber parties with my girlfriends just like we did 10+ years ago. I'll be there for 8 days (10 if you include the traveling days), but that already doesn't seem like enough. I'm definitely going to make the best out of it.
While I'm there, my close (Washington) girlfriends are throwing me a baby shower! I know that its so early in the game, but they insist. Honestly, I'd take any excuse to hang out with my loved ones, so I am all game. I just feel really guilty that they are doing so much for me... but as they say, its the things that I would do the same for them. Its times like these when you learn who will be there for you and be genuinely happy and supportive of you during such an important time in your life. Luckily for me, I have a couple of handfuls (both in Washington and California) that I know are the best of friends that a girl can have.
Okay... enough bragging about how happy and grateful I am. I seriously could probably go on forever, but I'll spare you the time.
