Well, you guys, it’s the last day of the year! And what better way to end the year than with a fabulous dress? Sunday Millie sent me this adorable 60’s number, and I LOVE it! My husband is skeptical about the fabric– it’s a mixture of satiny and rough — but I told him it doesn’t matter. The pattern is cute, I happen to like the fabric, and it’s one of those awesome tent dresses that can be belted for shape, or left flowing if you’re feeling lazy.
I keep thinking I should be writing a deep and thoughtful look back at the year on this last day of 2013, but I’ve never really been one to look back. I’m more excited about what is going to happen. Tomorrow is the first day of a four-day family vacation to the ocean, and then I’m going to have a baby, and I’ll be improving my health via cleaning out all the dairy, grains, sugars, and legumes from my diet (I don’t drink alcohol, so I usually forget to even add that to the list, ha!); we’ll be moving to a new house sometime around April, we’ll have our second anniversary (still far away, but…) and generally… I am just too excited about the new year coming to think about the old one past!
Not that this year didn’t have good things happen! I mean, four days after we discussed maybe trying to start having kids, we found out I was already pregnant; I tried the whole blonde hair thing; I got a job to work from home; we celebrated our first year anniversary… and I’m sure there’s more that my pregnant brain cannot remember right now.
I have fifteen days left. Fifteen days, give or take, and then I’ll have a little person in my arms to take care of. I can’t even imagine what that is going to be like! I’m actually more afraid of the thought of… pushing out a baby, because THAT is going to hurt, than I am of raising a kid. The pressure of parenthood hasn’t hit me yet. It’s hit my husband, though, which is probably good. One of us has to be concerned that we’ll be good parents, haha!
I might get fancy later this evening; we’re going to see The Hobbit again, this time with my dad and my brother who have yet to see it. And I can’t decide if I’m ambitious enough to wear two dresses today. Mostly because I didn’t sleep long enough last night and the stretchy yoga pants are calling my name… but also because pregnant = difficult to get things off. Like these tights. It’s a miracle I even got them on!
And because it’s the end of the year and I must leave you all with good memories:
I hereby grace you with the last outtake of the year. I think another resolution of mine might just be not to take myself so seriously all the time, and provide you all with the craziness that I sometimes possess. I am a definite face-maker, but when blogging I always go the “Oh, but they don’t know me that well and I want to look sane and pretty!” route.
So, 2014: expect more craziness, more faces, and more life. Also, baby. Lots and lots of baby.
