Springin' back into it...


Happy Spring! Although, we have had only like 2 days of spring-like weather! :o( I woke up today and thought to myself, "Why not start blogging again?" To be honest, I kinda miss it. I can't believe it's been like 4 months since I've posted anything! Yesterday, I started tweeting a little bit more and interacting with some followers and it made me miss my blog...

I figure I start blogging again with no obligations. Whenever I feel like it, I'll do it. I felt like it was turning into a job with reviewing and promoting things, which I didn't mind at all, but things got so busy around here and I couldn't find the time to do it any more. So I took a nice little break.

Let's see, what's new...? Nothing really. We had our wonderful 1st family vacation in Brazil over the holidays. It was great! The girls did wonderfully on the airplane. We were shocked! Within the new year came a nice promotion for my hubby. He is now the Associate Director of Admissions of Manor College. Wo0-ho0! He has also decided to go back to school as well! I'm still in school. I have about a week left of this semester! I wish I could say, I'll have a nice break in the summer, but I won't. Of course like last year, I will be taking up summer courses. Why not? They're accelerated and a little harder but I rather do 5 weeks of classes than 15 any day! This time it will be a little different though. I will actually have to GO INTO the class. I've ran out of online classes to take :o( It'll be nice though. To actually interact with other people in the class and I'll be able to concentrate more on my work since NO KIDS ALLOWED! Haha!

What else? What else? Oh can we talk about how expensive childcare/preschool is? I have been looking into it for the girls since Lyla will be 3 in the summer. I decided to put Kalina into school as well to get her used to it already since I will be in school full time by next Fall. Wow, everything is so expensive! I finally found a great one that is right across the street from where I'll be attending next year and I feel like I have to give an arm and a leg to pay for it. I'm just going to leave this for another post...

So I turned 25 on April 5th. Boy do I feel old. I had a really hard time with it. Sort of like a quarter-life crisis. My hubby was nice enough to point out that now I'm officially on another bracket. You know when you fill out an application or survey? I used to fill in the circle that stated my age was between 18-24. Now I'm on the one below that says 25-34! Thanks babe, for pointing that out! I feel like I have a lot accomplished for 25. I've been married for almost 6 years now (May 14th), I bought my house at 19, I have 2 amazing, crazy little girls, along with 2 crazy dogs and our lives are only going up from that. I'm working towards my degree and career while the hubby is successfully enjoying his. I couldn't be happier!

Other than that, things around here are pretty much the same. We have set a new 5 year plan/goal for our family and we are working so hard towards that. I love setting goal for us because it gives us something to strive for. And in 5 years we can look back and see how much of it we have accomplished. Again, I'll save this for another post...

Ok, I think I have bored you enough and I'll try to keep up with this again... if you want. Or not. Whatever. Thanks for reading and sticking around!

Love,
Natalie
