My sister asked if I wanted to blog about my experience as a mommy-to-be since I don’t get to see a lot of my friends and loved ones every week. I think it’s a great idea! This way, I have a place to talk about everyday things and/or vent instead of conversing with just my husband, sister, and best friend. While I know they don’t mind my crazy rants, having an outlet where people can give me positive feedback is going to be… Well, interesting I suppose. I would love positive feedback, as anybody ever only hopes to get. I don’t expect to rant often, but I’ve also never experienced crazy mood swings like this before. Actually, I probably have, but that also included “teenage angst and ‘the world hates me’ mentality.” At least now I’m a tad more rational.
I’ve only ever had a blog that wasn’t personal. I’ve since semi-abandoned that blog. It still exists, and can be found at www.thecupcakemassacre.blogspot.com. I used to post all of my cupcake recipes there, but since I’ve started a small side-business, that information is now priveledged.
You’ll probably notice I tend to get off-topic, or head off on different tangents – basically that’s because I write how I speak. And I speak how I think. I filter things, that’s for sure, but I do tend to jump all over the place. My sister’s blog is very “professionally casual”, but I would consider mine to be a conversation, albeit very one-sided.
So, this is me. I’m a mature kid-at-heart, who is very, VERY fond of her cats. I’m 24, married for 3 years, and expecting my first child. I live with my husband and two cats, Frank and Marmalade. Right now I am working full-time at a new job, but that status might change soon. I collect hobbies, and have too many to list off at this moment.
I have one older sister, whom I adore and look up to every day (and I’m not just saying that because she’s sharing space with me). She and I are 4 and a half years apart in age, but it seems like nothing now that we are both grown women. While we are at different points in our lives, we are still best of friends and talk often. I have a very close and healthy relationship with my parents and my in-laws.
I’ve been living on the other side of the country for a year, and miss my family terribly, but since technology is a big part of our lives, we are able to communicate more often than we did when I lived 20 minutes away.
For your safety, remain seated with your hands, arms, feet, and legs inside the vehicle at all times, get ready and hold on tight everyone, this next year (or so) is going to be one heck of a rollercoaster!
