Reverb10: Try

December 18th, 2010

December 18 – Try What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it? (Author: Kaileen Elise)

Next year in 2011 I want to try to be a good mother. I know that’s every new mother’s hope so I’m jumping on that train too.

I tried to have a baby in 2010. If you’ve been reading my past posts you know that I was successful. I’m pregnant, almost 8 weeks now. I/We went for it and it pretty much happened on our first try.

How’s that for success?

Reverb10: Lesson Learned

December 17th, 2010

December 17 – Lesson Learned What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward? (Author: Tara Weaver)

I learned that I can create something from nothing. And that I can organize a kick-ass party (with a little help from my dad) for little money but appears like a fancy soiree. Basically I learned that if I put my mind to it, I can do anything. I just need to have a plan and stick to it.

I think I actually already knew this, but planning my wedding was the first time I really saw it come to life. If I remember to plan and stick to my plan, I’ll think I’ll be very successful going forward in my life.

Reverb10: Friendship

December 16th, 2010

December 16 – Friendship How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst? (Author: Martha Mihalick)

I don’t think it was one friend in particular, but our group of friends here in Austin. Our friends are the type of friends to come when we need help. They lend a helping hand without being asked.

In a time when some many people are pessimistic about the human population, these people prove the pessimists wrong. I don’t know what I’d do without them.

They’ve definitely inspired me to be a better person.

Reverb10: 5 Minutes

December 15th, 2010

December 15 – 5 Minutes Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010. (Author: Patti Digh)

My wedding

Finding out I’m pregnant

Spending time with family

Spending time with friends

Planning and crafting my wedding

Dreaming about my new life with my new husband

Ummm…that probably only took my 5 seconds, but if I were actually thinking for 5 minutes, that’s probably what would pop into my head. It’s been a big year for me and next year will be even bigger!

7 Weeks!

December 14th, 2010

I’m 7 weeks pregnant now! That means I’ve got a blueberry sized baby inside of me.

I’m still currently avoiding morning sickness and heartburn, thank god. My boobs definitely hurt a lot and it seems like I’m hungry all the time. I’m a bit tired, but other then that, I feel great!

I’m a little nervous about continuing my Zumba classes. My mom reassures me that I’ll be fine. Afterall, she ran all the through my her pregnancies and me and my sister turned out fine. I’ve just got this irrational fear that the baby will get dislodged or something. But…I’m going back tonight. I’m gonna try. Everything I’ve read just says, “Listen to your body.” So I’m going, and I’m all ears!
