A Little Girl

I am having the hardest time possible finding a crib bedding set I like. I have found a few, but havent seen the one that I have absolutely fell in love with. Any ideas on where to find one? I hate the fact that I am really picky sometimes. And I also do not want to go with a strong nursery theme, like huge butterflies or massive colorful flowers. Does that sound crazy?  I just want things to be simple and the colors to be light. Ok, maybe I am starting to sound way to OCD. Anyways...Here are a few that I have found that I really like, but am still thinking there might be that one out there....

A Bump!

Well, I am 17 weeks in, and am now starting to really grow a bump. I feel like I wasnt really showing, and then I hit my 16th week, and really seemed to pop. Im glad I seem to be over that awkward stage of people not knowing if I was just chunky or if I was pregnant. I made it through my first trimester with out any morning sickness...which I was very thankful for! So far, I have had a pretty laid back pregnancy and am continuing to do almost everything as usual. I finally bought a pair of maternity pants, and oh how comfy they are! I still go to zip them up though every time I use the bathroom. Anways, I sure hope that things continue to be this go with the flow!

Oh Baby!

Phil and I have been extremely busy in the past couple of months, at that is probably saying it lightly. After 3 years, we finally bought our own house, and have moved in. That was an exciting and overwhelming process. Im sure glad that it isnt something we plan on doing again anytime soon. As if looking for and buying a house wasnt enough, we found out I was pregnant in the midst of our moving madness! Phil and I were both surprised and happy. Its been a hard adjustment, especially when I was not expecting a little one. But with things finally settling down around the house, Ive had more time to get to enjoy the thought of being pregnant and knowing that we will have a little one at the end of May. Its been an exciting time , and I know we are both looking forward to all of the amazing things to come:)

Blame it on the Dell...

So I've been MIA...once again. Well at least this time I have a semi-decent reason for it. Some where in the middle of summer, my Dell crashed. And BIG time :/ I feel like ever since I have had this computer, its caused a lot of stress! Just when I thought I was in the clear with the anti-virus program and software, paying for the extra warranty, and keeping my system updated was really all for nothing! I turned my computer on only to find popping up was a blue screen. And for all the nerds out there, you dread seeing that blue screen, especially when it states, "fatal system error." So I have been trying to figure out a solution. But I really dont feel the need to  have to pay an arm and a leg for the help, even if its just to chat online with Dell support. So I have been trying to live my nerdy lifestyle through my iPhone. But sometimes all I wanted was a big screen where I didnt have to zoom to read an article or email! Anyways, I think I have gotten to the point where I dont care how much info I am going to lose on my computer, its worth trying to reboot and start all over. Its just one of those things where Im at a loss. Just as well, as at a loss for the money to pay for it to be fixed. So hopefully once this problem gets fixed I will be back up on the internet and be able to keep updated. Its just one more problem I add to the list... ugghh

Summer Vacation? Not soo sure...

As of yesterday, June 21, it was our first official day of summer. However for most of you, summer probably starts somewhere around the end of May or beginning of June. And mine..well summer starts on the last day of school! There are always a million things I want to do over  break, but somehow always manage to complete about maybe 3 of them. So here it is now, the middle of June already, and I find this depressing.

Ive lost about 95% of the tan I started with. And the funny thing is, is that my original tan was from a fake n' bake bed. I have yet to get my back storage/arts&crafts/office/oceanarium room back in order. I still have school stuff thrown about room, and it didn't help that my husband decided to bring home a 60 gallon tank for Shelly. I was like... "um did you even think about where we were going to put this thing?" His answer, "well it was free." Some days folks...some days!

So I'm in the midst of my summer vacay, and feel like I am stuck going nowhere. Needless to say accomplishing anything. Its not that I am not motivated, I just don't know where to start. So somewhere between doing loads of laundry, organizing, cleaning, doing random errands, I still need to find the time to enjoy summer, just when?

I have about 2 weeks until I begin teaching bilingual summer school. I was very excited to get accepted in, and am looking forward to working with the kids. Plus, I feel fortunate to be able to earn a little extra money. I am still struggling to save for a house. Why do I feel like I will never be able to save enough! Being an adult just seems to be getting tougher and tougher.

Anyways, please tell me I am not the only one who just wishes they could go back and enjoy the summer vacations like we did when we were in elementary school? Ahhh..now those were the days...
