Cheering gets the job done

My amazing husband and his BFF Nathan built me a deck this weekend! Yes, it was for me because anything that’s done in the month of March is in celebration of my birthday. Don’t you celebrate your birthday all month long!? I take full advantage of it. Anyways, they started and completed this beautiful deck in just 2 days! Owen and I were very impressed. I supported them by bringing them ice water every so often and cheering them on. I’m pretty sure my cheers were what they needed to finish the job so quickly. Maybe they worked so fast because they were trying to get me to stop cheering... hmmm interesting… either way it worked!

Owen's St. Patty's Day Outtakes

This is what I imagine my 5 month old was thinking during out 2 min photo shoot on the front lawn. What are your thoughts?

Home Depot Regulars

You know you shop at Home Depot too much when you start to recognize the employees. Or worse, the employees recognize you! Last night was hopefully our one and only trip there for this week. Sadly our “date nights” have consisted of wandering around Home Depot for the past few weeks. Why you ask? We have been finishing up a home addition project that started about 6 months ago. Baby steps to the finish line!

I’m pretty sure Owen thinks we own a second home with a bright orange sign in front of it. He gets all excited when we arrive and can’t stop kicking. No baby boy, this so called Home, that smells of delicious newly cut lumber, makes us leave at 9pm promptly every weeknight. It’s sad that I know the closing times, right?

Almost 30. Yikes!

Did anyone get a little freaked out when they turned 30? I would say I’m about 90% in awe of how much my life has changed over the past decade and 10% freaked out. Not logically freaked out, just not being able to say, “I’m in my 20’s” is odd to me. However, life has changed so much in my 20’s and just thinking about it all makes me smile. I’ve graduated college, made countless memories with some amazing besties, traveled to several countries, met the man of my dreams and got married, bought a house and had the sweetest baby boy a mama could ask for! Holy moly! Life is an adventure!

Now before I get too sentimental and start weeping all over my laptop (lingering prego hormones) I want to make some New Years resolutions. I’m usually a little late for the January resolutions so I figure my birthday is a good time to set them! Here we go…

  1. Take more pictures! Especially since I have the cutest babe rolling around my casa.
  2. Lose the remaining 6 lbs of baby weight. Stubborn little buggers.
  3. Don’t let the fact that my husband is 27 and I’m 30 (A completely different decade!) get to me too much.
  4. Blog more. Keep me accountable please!
  5. Become a better cook. Which basically means to cook more than my 15 revolving dishes.
  6. Read more.

How about you? Did you freak out a little when you turned 30? Or does the thought turning 30 bother you at all?
