When was my last post? I have no idea. For those of your following what I do have to say, here;s what going on.
I quit my job as a hostess at a retirement community in their dining room and began working 3/4 to full time as a caregiver/nanny. The two children both have cerebral palsy and are also my cousins (by marriage.) My job is the most stressful but the most rewarding I think a 19-year-old can have. The every day challenges can certainly get to you but the love we all share makes each day a gift.
That amazing man I have previously talked about, he proposed to me and we are now engaged to be married this following September (2015.) We are currently living together and have since April of this year. I have the most unconditional love for him. He makes me smile every day and he won’t let us go a day without a true kiss.
I have fallen off the weight-loss train yet again after losing 35lbs when the wedding planning started in August. Definitely needing to hop back on because my dress doesn’t zip without the corset…And we plan to start a family not long after we finalize the marriage!
We are looking to move into a bigger apartment just before the wedding but I doubt we will do much arranging of things until the wedding is over. I suspect our 130+ guests will give us some gifts…
We have decided we desperately want to start a family after the wedding comes to an end and we are enjoying the thrills of being newlyweds. Adam and I have discussed this many of times. I would be happy to have either, but together we wish for a daughter. My mother has been pushing us for two grandkids but we would like to stick to one… Only time will tell.
My following posts will likely consist of pre-pregnancy shenanigans and wedding hoorays. Having babysat for the better part of 10 years and now being up-close and personal with four children I have a pretty decent idea of parenthood.
To-da-loo until then 🙂
