2017: A Recap

As the year comes to an end, I once again take a moment to pause and reflect. I have to say, 2017 was a pretty awesome year for me. 

  • Bought a house! It’s a pretty cool house, I like it. 
  • Moved into said house and barely had to do any work because I was pregnant ;) 

  • Set up an amazing craft room! It’s very unorganized right now but it’s so nice having my machines set up and having a dedicated cutting and pressing table.

  • Set up an adorable space themed nursery for the baby.

  • Had fun parties at our new house. Birthday parties, baby shower, just because dinners, etc. 

  • Had a baby! Delivery didn’t go quite how I wanted, but Baby Boy was born healthy and we had no scares so I am still calling it a huge success. 

  • So many baby milestones in just 4 and a half months. It’s been so fun to watch him learn new things, and I love all the firsts!

  • Baby giggles. 

  • Watching Kevin be a Dad. He loves his boy <3 

This will be a tough year to top!

Did I Mention I’m Having a Baby?

Man. Every time something exciting happens, I think for sure it’s the nudge I need to come back and start blogging again. Guess what happens….

When I got engaged, I figured planning a wedding would give me tons of blogging fodder. It actually did, but I was so exhausted planning it that I didn’t have the energy to blog besides the one post I made! The wedding was amazing though, I promise I’ll make a post about it soon, share the video and a few photos.

When we bought a house (… oh I guess I didn’t mention that either), I suppose I could have made a post about the buying process, but honestly it’s kind of boring. Our house is cute though! And Toby is absolutely loving his new yard. Maybe I’ll post about it when we have our housewarming party… in July… hah.

So now, we’re having a baby! Exciting right? Want to guess how far along I am based on how many posts I’ve made? Nooo I’m not going to pop tomorrow haha, but I am in the third trimester. Baby Boy is due mid-August, Kevin and I are very excited! Here’s what the little guy looked like at our 20 week anatomy scan.

I’m not sure what all I’d have posted about so far. First trimester was a blur of exhaustion and nasty morning sickness. Second trimester got slightly better. I’m feeling surprisingly good now at the start of the third, but I’m sure comfort-wise it’s going to start going downhill any time! I already ache all the time, but it’s manageable.

So since clearly being pregnant wasn’t enough to make me blog… we’ll see what happens when kiddo is born. Maybe I’ll become a Mommy Blogger hahahaha. Probably not.
