My New Year Plan (and Announcement)

.
.
So this coming year, I have a few big goals!
.
1. Stay sane!
2. Gain less than 50 pounds!
3. Learn how to manage THREE kids, a job, a blog and a life!
.

Yes, my big announcement is that I am pregnant. I made one of those cool skeleton shirts with a fetus skeleton to tell some of my family and friends. It tooks some (my mom) two days of me wearing this shirt before she asked if I was pregnant. Others it took one or two minutes. It was fun to wear around even if it wasn't Halloween. I used the heat transfer material from Silhouette to make the shirt. I recommend the product!!! It worked great!
.
I am due June 30, but will probably get induced a few days prior to this. (Our insurance starts over on July 1 and we have already met our large deductible this year due to my knee surgery. I don't want to pay the deductible again!) We will find out the gender in February!
.
I have been great friends with the toilet for the past 2 1/2 months. I'm hoping that friendship will end soon or I am going to lose my mind. It is so hard not being able to open the fridge or cook for my family without puking!


Here is a close up of the shirt. I took it as I was wearing it so I realize the picture isn't that great. I should have taken it off!!!

.

With my three goals, things may be changing on this blog. I'm not sure what changes will be coming yet, but I know something has to change as the new baby comes!

.

Wish me luck in obtaining my goals!

What are your goals?

    I'm due August 20th :) I can't wait for a divorce from the toilet... We became best friends this past week. Which my 1 year old finds HILARIOUS. One day he laughs at me. The next day he laughs and then hugged me once I was done. Today he rubbed my back and said "hush hush hush"

  40. Congratulations! I hope #3 goes easier for you than it did for me- I heard some people think 3 is no problem- others say 3 is the tipping point! For me, it was rough- I am just feeling sane again (mostly) 15 months later!

    Love the blog- I'll keep reading no matter what changes you have to make.
