I've been legit counting down the days/hours/minutes for today to finally arrive. And whadda know? It's here. Thank goodness. What's weird is that October 29th has always been just another day (at least to me). But come to think of it, pretty amazing things have happened on the 29th day of this month. For instance...
Eight years ago, I first laid eyes my now-husband. Back in 2006, him and I were at the same Halloween party. Although he was "talking" with someone else at the time, my mind instantly went to, "I am going to marry him. He's mine!" I am unsure if I necessarily believe in love at first sight, but in that moment, I surely knew that he was meant for me.
Halloween 2007 - a year after we met. I couldn't find a picture from 2006.
Four years ago, my now-husband asked me if I would take his last name and marry him. It was a Friday night in 2010 and we went out for dinner and dessert in The Woodlands. Right after our tummies were full, he took me outside, asked someone to snap a photo of us, and got down on one knee. The rest is history - I obviously said yes!
And today, October 29, 2014, my husband and I get to have our first ultrasound and learn how many baby/babies that God has blessed us with. If you are new around these parts of my blog, then you may not know that we're newly pregnant through In Vitro Fertilization. Today is a special day for us because him and I get to meet our minis (through the ultrasound) for the first time. Words cannot describe how happy that makes me.
When I realized that all these special things occurred on October 29th, I told my husband and his response was, "that's blogable." Anyways, like I previously mentioned, I will fill everyone in on the exciting details about our first ultrasound on Friday.
In other news, my life is crazy hectic. Seriously. I don't even know where to begin. 1) Work has been very busy (which is expected during this time of year!), 2) I can't seem to keep up with all my school work, 3) The Comprehensive Exam for my master's program is next week - AHH! 4) My internship keeps me uber busy, 5) Hubby and I are working on some other personal matters that will be changing here in the near future - which is just another thing on my mind, and 6) I am still taking injections. I have been on them since August 27th and I am about tired of those things. But it's all for the sake of bebe.
P.S. I pretty much am the worst e-mailer ever, so if you haven't gotten a response from me, you're not alone. Please don't be offended. My life right now is just hectic!
