I’m so excited…

(and I just can’t hide it….) I know you just sang that in your head. I also know I’m a big dork.
Hello! Beautiful, wonderful, and all around awesome people who are reading this. 
Needless to say, I am in a GREAT mood!
“Why?” You ask. Well I shall tell you…
This week has been AWESOME and it is only half way through.
(knocking on wood before I jinx myself)
First off, the little sea monkey has started kicking! 
I don’t know about you, but feeling those little pokes in the gut takes a HUGE weight off my shoulders. 
Up until this point I have been in complete paranoia mode that something is going wrong in there. 
Do I have any reason to think that something might go wrong? No.
Did anything go wrong last time? No.
Are the Doctors worried? No
Do I still stress myself out about it anyway just for fun? Absolutely!
But now that I can feel him in there wriggling around each night, I’ll just feel better.
HIM?!
Well no. I still don’t know what the lil monkey is, but everyone seems to be calling it a boy. 
I’m not sure if they think it should be a boy because we already have a girl, but sometime in the next 2 weeks I’m gonna find out for sure. (shhhh… Don’t tell anyone, but I think I want it to be another girl ; )
Next cool thing on the list…
WE GOT A NEW CAR!!!!!
(I might be a little excited about this one.)
After more than 6 months of being stuck at home everyday, I can finally get out during the week and finish all the errands. That way, we can start dedicating the weekends to things that are actually fun like the zoo. 
I can’t even describe to you how happy this new freedom makes me!
The first thing we did yesterday on the way home from the car dealer was stop at the thrift store! 
(Score: 3 pairs of pants for Reli, a storybook, and a 5lb. block of melt and pour soap…$8)
And as if that wasn’t enough to make anyone pee their pants happy…
We can now go to story time whenever we want,
The dentist is finally done fixing the teeth I broke back in September,
We got the curtains hung so the sun doesn’t wake us up at the crack of dawn,
I found this House of Bounce place just down the street where I can wear Reli out during the winter,
Joann’s had an amazing sale this weekend where I saved $100 on things I actually NEEDED,
80% of my Christmas shopping is finished,
and,
 I have been making great progress decorating Reli’s bedroom!
Now the only things I need are this exhaustion to go away, Reli to decide she needs
5 hr afternoon naps, chocolate to fall from the sky, and maybe to win the lottery. 
But, even if none of those things happen, I’m still happy! 
Hopefully some of my good fortune rubs off on you all just for reading this, 
and you have a super fun and relaxing weekend!

  1. 5 hour afternoon nap would be pure happiness!! I love that first picture – so, so, so sweet! Reli looks just as excited as you to have a car. People are always surprised at how friendly & chatty Lyla is when we're out. I think it's because she gets to finally see some other than mom, but I'm sure that's not why Reli is grinning ear to ear 😉 I'm so happy for you. Just curious (aka, nosey) were you guys waiting for a great deal, certain car, or are you just really picky?? I'm glad you can get out – it so helps with keeping the sanity.
