I'm Planning!

So excited to be planning a vacation for Matt and I to go on together in May. This will be our Mother's Day and Father's Day gifts to one another.
We are going to Houston, TX. The Dodgers will be playing the Astros! I love planning things! Especially vacations! And I've only been to Houston a few times so I'm excited to research all there is to do there. We also considered staying in Galveston, about 45 minutes away and just driving in for the game. Either way, I can't wait! It'll be great quality time for the two of us! Plus, it'll be another trip for me to scrapbook! Woohooo!

I LOVE getting mail! Hudson and I like to check the mail together! Today we had one single envelope in our mailbox..(the mailbox that is all wobbly because my sister backed into it with her car right after we moved in! Ha!)
You know what else I love?? My friends! My friends who live far away. My friends who sent us mail this week. What a pleasant surprise! We miss them, too!

"The best kind of prize is a SURPRISE!"
Can anyone guess what movie this is from?

On with Tomorrow, please!

Today was a weird day for me. A weird day leaning toward the negative side of life unfortunately.
I'm not going to go into much detail. I feel I just need to let a few things out of my system after such a day as this...
Let's see. How do I begin...
I hate the feeling of letting someone down who you know had higher expectations of you. There's this one person in this season of my life who I think alot of. I look up to this person and hope that they think highly of me as a person, an artist. Today I feel like, I know, that I didn't meet their expectations of me. I hate that feeling. I wish I could have a do-over. Unfortunately I cannot. I only have the opportunity to try to prove myself to them once again. And this is one of those instances where me trying to prove myself in deemed appropriate.
If that weren't enough, I experienced something today that I've never experienced before. I sat in a chair I've never sat in before and had a conversation I've never had before.. And quite frankly thought I'd never have. And I'll do it again next week too! Same time, same place, same person! It marks the beginning of something I hope will be beneficial from here on out!
It's just something I'm not used to.. Something.. Well, weird!
UUGGHHH! THEN, my car broke down today:( that's never fun. Something about the water pump... I'm really praying that it isn't expensive to be fixed!
The worst part of the day, believe it or not, wasn't my car breaking down. The worst part of my day was coming to a realization that I wish I could get away with avoiding. However, I cannot. It will only cause more issues. I have to be a big girl and deal with it. It's one of those things you ABSOLUTELY DREAD doing but know that in the end you'll be so happy you did because it will be completely worth it. I have some praying to do, some self analyzing to do, and some healing that needs to take place! It's another one of those spiritual growth instances that God likes to sneak up on you with! Ouch!

Well, to leave with a more positive note: I know that tomorrow is a new day and God's mercies are new every morning! Thank goodness! If it weren't for that promise, days like this would be alot harder to get through!

I'm NOT Pregnant

Every now and then I'll move into a position or my stomach will do something funny that makes me feel like I'm pregnant again.. Like there's a baby rolling around in there! Now, our (me and my hubby) five year plan does NOT include baby #2 for ATLEAST another year and a half. And i have 100% assurance we wont have another uh-oh (even tho we know Hudson was for sure a part of Gods perfect plan and timing) thanks to my awesome bc, Mirena. But lately my low-temp baby fever has turned into a little more. First and foremost, I'm sure the reason has a little something to do with the fact that two of my very dear friends just announced their new pregnancy a couple weeks ago as well as another friend of mine who announced it this week, another friend had her baby last week and then another told me they were trying again! Whoa! Am I forgetting anybody?? I also took a short look at some newborn pics the other day and it about killed me! And I think another HUGE factor playing a role here is that Hudson Wade will be 1 year old in about 2 weeks.... And that's definitely killing me more then the newborn pics I saw. In fact, it's slowing breaking my heart as the day draws closer. Moms, how do I deal with this heartache?! I've tried focussing on the party.. Monkey themed party! And that's helped some. But it still is just breaking my heart AND causing big time baby fever that I definitely do not need for another couples years! Maybe when the party is over and these new pregnancies aren't so new anymore it will go away a little. I certainly don't want to forget to enjoy Hudson at this age while wishing he were younger or wishing for another baby!!! He's mommy's sweet boy! And no matter how old he gets, or how many younger brothers and sisters he ends up with, he will always be MINE! My sweet Hudson Wade... And that's what matters most!
