So, umm, Gossip Girl led me to believe that you die of old age by 26, but apparently that is not the case.
Actually, it really feels like we are just getting started. I mean, I feel old, but there’s so much exciting stuff going on. We got pre-approved for our mortgage today. We are having a baby girl (still in total shock and awe). My husband is an attorney and I’ll be a PhD in another 7 months.
It’s gonna be a great year!
Crap, I am old. I’m completely stocked to have a mortgage. And there is the whole being someone’s parent thing.
My mom came up for the weekend to buy me maternity clothes. I have shirts that cover my midriff, a winter coat (the sides unzip when I get fat), and bras that actually fit (I had to buy the super mega biggies at Cacique). She also took us to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse for dinner (the whole place smells like sizzling butter and the food was amazing) and then we went to the ultrasound where they showed us the cheeseburger. It was a great visit, even if she did admit I’m basically the grandchild life support system (she walked in and demanded to see her grandbaby, which I found highly entertaining!
Today we kept it pretty simply since husband had to work an hour and a half away. I went to work, I went to Mandy’s (and ate all her food), and then I came home where husband presented me with my birthday gift:
Word on the street is there is a matching necklace for Christmas! This is our last birthday/Christmas as DINKs, so I guess he decided to do it up (also, 60% off). The best part is he picked emeralds because the baby is due in May (emerald is the May birthstone). I hope she decides to stay in there until May!
And now to go to bed before 9 PM because I am, in fact a senior citizen. No seriously, I have been getting threatening letters for the AARP for the last few years because someone my age NEEDS to be a member of the AARP. They don’t seem to believe me when I tell them I was born in 1985.
Do you have any birthday traditions? Did I use too many parenthesis in this post? I kinda think I did.
