February

Hello and YAY for February!

Why 'yay' for February you ask?  Well hellurrr - it's my birth month!

COUNTDOWN: 3 MORE DAYS!

Not only that, but this year my husband is doing the most for my birthday.  I have never ever been to a concert or to Las Vegas.  So my husband decided to treat me to BOTH for my birthday!  I'm so excited and somewhat shocked that he pulled this off because he isn't one for thoroughly planning anything [hahaha seriously].  He bought the tickets, asked my in-laws to watch our kids, and booked a hotel - everything!  I'm so damn excited I could go streaking [it's still up for debate].  We'll be seeing Ariana Grande for her #DangerousWomanTour - I like some of her music and I'm not some obsessed fan [I tend to cringe at her stance when it comes to politics], but regardless I can't wait!

Being that I've never gone to a concert, I ended up looking up on Pinterest what to wear...  I felt like an old person Googling some slang words to learn what they actually mean.  I guess it's fitting being I am getting older -- I'm turning 28!  I can hear myself from years ago making fun of my sister as she was getting closer and closer to her 30th birthday, now here I am.  And I've noticed that as you get older, you get less presents...  #SorryNotSorry but I haven't grown out of the presents phase.  That makes getting older kind of depressing.  So let's just say that I'm turning 21 again, I like the sound of that a lot more.  

Anyways, there is still no news on the status of my Husband deploying; typical of the military.  So we get to play the waiting game again [this won't be the last time] until they decide what's to come.  I've been trying to not think about it too much; you can't stress over the things you can't control, right?  Like I said before, it was inevitable that this time would eventually come.  Every once in a while I start to think "what will I do while he's gone?" or "how will the kids feel?" or "should we go home for a bit since there's nothing here for us?" - etc.

It would be nice to visit home though, especially since my older brother and my SIL welcomed their first baby to our always expanding family!  She is so precious and I cannot wait to meet her!  She arrived a little earlier than expected, but I'm sure her Daddy/Mommy couldn't wait to hold her!  It's still so crazy for me to picture my brother as a Dad.  He's had the 'Uncle' label for quite some time now, but I have no doubt she'll have him wrapped around her finger in no time; if she hasn't already.

I don't know if I ever shared it on my blog, but in December we FINALLY bought a brand new BIGGER vehicle!  My husband sold his car awhile back so that he can buy me a bigger car - since I'm the one who usually drives the kids around while he's busy working.  So in the meantime, he drives my car until we sell it, then he'll get a motorcycle.  I love it though, it's so spacious and comfortable.  It's a 7-seater so if we ever in the future future future decide we want more kids, we'll have the room available!  [don't get any ideas, no babies for us this year]

In other news, my kiddos are busy growing!  Last month we celebrated both of their birthdays.  My Little Big Man turned 11 and went paint balling for the FIRST time ever.  He invited two of his friends [prices out here don't play] who ended up not showing or RSVP'ing [so annoying], so it ended up being a Daddy/Son date.  They had a blast and have already been planning their next visit.  They even got my Dad on board discussing how they plan to buy their own equipment, etc.  Meanwhile I'm over here wondering where the hell am I going to store all of this shit...  My Toddler turned 3 and has been overwhelmed with toys and clothes galore!  He loves it.  All he had asked for was some ice cream cake [and I wasn't objecting].  I just realized that seemed to be our theme this year - ice cream cake; I almost forgot how yummy it tastes, especially mint chocolate chip or cookies 'n cream.

Until next time, positive vibes -
