My best friend Megan officially announced that she's pregnant today!
Six weeks- due on March 13th.
I'm super happy and happy for her- of course the news is bittersweet- its a very mixed feeling when the girl you grew up with finds out she's going to be a mom - especially when you know that babies are a way off for you - but I am of course thrilled over all!
When Megan first told me that she thought she was pregnant the thought crossed my mind that essentially all of my friends either already have children or are pregnant- at least the married ones that live in close proximity- isn't funny how life pushes you forward- ready or not?
But don't get it twisted- baby is not ready to have babies yet- I want to enjoy my slimmed down figure (and make it slimmer) and spend some quality newlywed time with hubband - not to mention accumulate some extra fundage before I even think of baby making.
In my most simple form I am an explosion of endearing quirks and delightfully glamorous tendencies. Some of my most wonderful talents and qualities include but of course are not limited to: cracking an egg with one hand, applying mascara without a mirror, freakishly perfect and neat printing skills, a completely unashamed love for incredibly girly and sometimes questionably un-adult things (if my choice of paper clips happens to be silver or pink- I'm always going to go for the pink) a never-ending devotion to all things stationary (planners, notepads, greeting cards, post-it notes)My love of both The Girls Next Door and John and Kate + Eight and desire to live both lifestyles simultaneously (well, with far fewer children than 8!) an admitted addiction to cosmetics,lotions, and potions, and of course the pretty fingers that type the thoughtful words that bring this blog to you today-XOXO!
