Yes, I’m Positive…

Hello, world. I thought I’d give this a try again. You should know that, having been away from the blogging scene for so long, I have become a little shy, perhaps needy, and desperate for approval. (Slight exaggeration.) If only 2 or 3 people like/comment on this post, I will be heart-broken and possibly never post again. Just a little something to keep in mind.

I have some news to share. First a quick update on my life. I got engaged December 2013. We bought and moved into our first home in August 2014. We are still unmarried (but will be resolving that soon). Mostly it’s because planning a wedding in Puerto Rico (where we have tons of family) is way too stressful for a lazy person such as myself. I also don’t have enough vacation days to deal with that. So city hall it is. Are you judging me? It’s not that I’m unromantic. It’s just that at the end of the day, I want him to be my husband. I don’t need all the bells and whistles, all the stress of planning, all the costs associated with that. I never dreamed of a big, white wedding, so I don’t feel like I’m missing out.

This leads me to my news. Drum-roll… WAKE UP! Did you just fall asleep on me? I’m devasted, truly. SOOOO… I am here to announce that…I’M PREGNANT!!! Just one more reason why city hall seems like the best option. Anyway, see below for evidence. We are excited, and yes, absolutely terrified. But it’s been on our minds, and it’s something we wanted to happen in the near future. It happened now, so that’s great! I will surely freak out along the way. I am waiting for the panic attack that I know I’m overdue for. I know nothing about babies (except they poop, they eat, they sleep, they cry…a lot). But I suppose no one is born KNOWING exactly what to do in every situation, right? I’ll figure it out…meh? Sure, my body may never recover. Sure, I may never sleep again. And sure, I won’t be able to save up as much money, but hey! It’ll be fun, right? Ummmm…

If anyone’s reading this, I will try to update you guys as I get more round and squishy. Right now, I’m about 13 weeks. Let the adventure begin! Until then…

Don’t scroll down until you’ve read the post…

No really, you have to read the post first.

It’s not like it’s that long of a post.

If you scroll down first, you’ll ruin everything.

Are you even listening to me?

Seriously, stop right now…

  1. AY, DIOS MIO!!!! FELICIDADES a ti y a tu familia!! So incredibly exciting, I can’t stand it! LOL. You are a smart and wise woman in not spending all that $$$ on the wedding. It is obvious that you have found your life partner and now are beginning the next stage of your lives together. Keep the posts coming, I want to know every detail (well, maybe not every single detail) of your pregnancy and beyond. 🙂

    1. GRACIAS!! Yes, in the end, the wedding is just ONE day that flies so quickly, and sucks up all your money! I’d rather focus on the forever after part. 🙂 I will try to post updates but don’t worry, nothing disgusting! Lol.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS! So much to be thankful for! I agree with the City Hall way to go, as I did the same thing years ago. I did not want the expense nor a big wedding, just wanted to make it official. In this day and age, it does make a lot of sense to not put yourself in debt with a big wedding. Congrats seriously on EVERYTHING! You might not know all the answers to motherhood, but you will figure it all out along the way, in your way, in your style, at your pace, and everything will be ok. Hugs!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I am sure we’ll figure it out and hopefully not make a mess of things! As for wedding, I don’t blame you at all! It just makes so much sense, why have all the stress and debt that goes with a big wedding? No thanks! Hugs back!
