I was so excited to find out the sex of the baby on my birthday this year, I really didn’t feel like it was my birthday but now that I’ve been the big 2-2 for 2 days now, I can’t help but look back and think about how much my life has changed the past year.
Last year my birthday was on a Thursday and since I was turning 21, Philip and I took off work Thursday and Friday and went to VEGAS for a long weekend.
I remember feeling so excited to wake up and head to the airport bright and early, we couldn’t wait to do all things Vegas. Although we aren’t big time gamblers (we went to Vegas and only gambled once), we enjoyed the all-day-drinking, the sites, and the shows!
Vegas was definitely amazing and I highly recommend everyone go at least once, Philip and I had so much fun. We saw Blue Man Group, X Burlesque, and the Variety Show. We stayed at the Bellagio and it was absolutely gorgeous but if I were to go back, I’d stay somewhere else only because everything in the Bellagio was so expensive ($6 bottled Coors Lite’s) , we spent all of our time in the other casino’s anyway. The location was perfect though because it was in the middle of everything. The eating in Vegas was amazing as well. We hit up the (very expensive) buffet in the Bellagio twice, tried several mexican restaurants, and places along the strip.
Aside from Vegas last year, I was working for a company I hated. I felt miserable going to work everyday and when I got another job offer that paid less, I almost stayed but I ended up leaving anyway and I think that was the best decision I could have ever made for myself. I’m much happier now and don’t dread going to work daily! It’s a great feeling.
Nothing compares to how I spent my birthday this year though. I was like a kid on Christmas waking up because I knew at 9am I was going to see my sweet baby on the ultrasound and find out if I needed to start buying pink or blue!I guess what they say is true, women really do become moms when they get pregnant because there’s such a special bond you have with your baby after “growing” them for 9 months. I know I’ve definitely transformed into “mommy-mode” already and I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m so excited for December to get here so I can meet my son!!!
