Next Stop On Life Tour

I made it through a rehearsal process, a tech process and the run of a show and now I am preparing for the biggest gig of my life: Motherhood!

I found out I was pregnant early in the rehearsal process for Grease and it was hard to not tell other people. I had my moments of “morning sickness”, which happened at all hours of the day but overall I felt good.

*pt* was out of town when I found out and I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep the big secret from him for very long so I decided to FaceTime him and show him his 2nd Wedding Anniversary gift.

OnesieFirst of all I lucked out because the traditional gift for the 2nd Anniversary is cotton—enter cotton onesie. The Peterbilt patch on it is because a few years ago we were driving somewhere and I saw a semi-truck had mud flaps that had this brand logo on it. The next thing I said was “Peterbilt… that’s what my babies are gonna be”. I knew immediately this would be a clever way to one day tell him I was pregnant. I searched online and found the patches. (I’ve had them for over a year)

Over the last few weeks we slowly told our immediate family and without surprise everyone is over the moon excited! We have lots to do to prepare but I hope to be able to continue using my list making skill to help us along the way.

Stay tuned for updates…

Cheers (with a kid friendly beverage of course) to the next stop in our Life Tour!

Observations in Life- 1st Edition

Let’s see how this goes…first edition.

Everyday there are things that happen or that I see and they make me stop and think.

Lately (probably since I’ve been spending so much time with my nephew) I’ve been thinking about babies (not necessarily about having one—hang in there mom—soon enough:)—but more about this thing we go about everyday called Life!

I remember when my oldest brother and sister-in-law told me they were having a baby–that baby just turned 7 in September. Within those 7 years I have been many places and done many things and currently I have 1 niece and 3 nephews! I’m one lucky auntie! 🙂

I look at them all and think: ‘as this Earth turns we all continue to age’.

Not age in a negative way just grow.

I was riding the train to work the other day and I looked around and thought ‘all of these people were once little babies and someone had to feed them prunes for the first time (as I did to Smushy that morning) and someone had to change their diapers. Life is really pretty amazing!

The Earth takes 365 days to rotate around the sun and in that time we all grow! (some become wiser than others 😃)

I have a pretty strong religious base but even without that I can’t help but wonder about how and why we as Earth-lings came to be? And why Earth? Why not Mars or Jupiter? Sometimes I like to think that there are other beings on another planet and they watch our “reality” shows and laugh! Strange thought I know!

Things in our everyday can be tough sometimes but I think if we all stop and take a look at a baby and then at an adult and realize that from one year to the next- 365 really does fly by!

Taking a little “Fall Break” and going to try and observe life some more in the next few days—with my hubby! ❤️

Leave a comment if you ever think of Life like I do! 😎

Cheers to a great weekend!
