Recap of the Past 6 Months

I have basically been MIA from blogworld for the past 6 months. When I first started this blog I was really ambitious about it and I wanted to post something new everyday .... but in the real world that is pretty much impossible unless you get to stay home all day. I will admit, I go through phases. I enjoy doing one hobby for a little while and then I let it dwindle down to not doing it again for six months. But guess what - I'M BACK. Hopefully for good. Here is a quick recap of what has happened in the past 6 months of my life ......

My last post was from November 23, 2012. Earlier that month, on November 8th, exactly 6 days after we bought our first home, and 2 days after I turned 22 - I found out I was pregnant! This was frightening and exciting at the same time, but it really put a deadline on getting the home makeover done before baby comes. Almost everynight after our 9-5 day jobs we worked diligently on the house until 11:00pm. Unfortunately, there was a lot that I couldn't help with with my new condition, and therefore I took on the job of the decorator. (Pictures and posts to come about the makeover)

 During this time I was also taking a physics course. Once the college semester ended in mid December life slowed down ..... sort of.

My best friend got engaged in early January and asked me to be the maid of honor in her wedding. I of course said YES!!! So thrilled that she was getting married, I wanted to help as much as possible. (More to come on the shower and party favors). Pinterest is a miracle! It makes party planning and decorating so much easier and unique.

On February 23 we announced to all of our family and our closest friends that we are having a baby girl! My mom planned a really cute announcement party that I think every pregnant women should have. (Definitley will post more on this!)

March 14 marked my three year wedding anniversary to my lovely husband Johnny.

On April 6 Keeana had her first bridal shower.

April 21st was my turn to throw Keeana her personal bridal shower, which I am proud it turned out to be amazing!

On April 27 I recieved my acceptance letter to a program that I have been trying so hard for two years to get into! This is the Diagnostic Medical Imaging Sonography program which I will begin this fall!

May 12 was the big day! Keeana and Michael's wedding.

Since then, Johnny and I have had a little bit of time for us. Now we're focusing on the Baby and preparing for her arrival.  My mom is throwing me two baby showers coming up in the month of June. She is letting me help decorate which I love to do!

Before our world completely changes forever - Johnny and I were able to sneak away on a little "Baby Moon" to Maine.

This timeline covers the major events that have happened in the past six months of my life! I hope to be more regular about my posts! Can't wait to write more soon.
