Bye Bye Desk

In exactly 20 minutes I will officially be a SAHM. Josie's full time caregiver. Andrew's full time wife. Completely unemployed.
A few weeks ago I was over-the-top excited. This past week I've been a bit nervous about the whole thing. Today, I am just ready to get outta here.
I swear time has never moved slower.

Not only do I start my new God Given job tomorrow, but Andrew's days off are tomorrow and Saturday. I don't remember the last time we were home together for a full 48 hours!
Not that we'll be home.
There are errands to run, last minute party things to be done, repacking (since we've now been informed that it's in the 80's in Arizona!) that must be done.
But we'll be doing it together so it will be way fun.

Josie's party is on Saturday.
I cannot wait!
We tried on her little birthday outfit, (that I made btw!) and she look like the Birthday Bug Princess that she is! She even covered her mouth with her hands while she giggled at herself in the mirror. That's my new favorite!

And our small, intimate party? You know, the one that wouldn't be too stressful since we're going out of town 2 days after?
I just tallied up the guests and we're at about 40. And that's still not everyone.
Good thing Andrew's mom is a good sport and is going to help whip up another round of cupcakes!
It's going to be so much fun. And to tell you the truth, I'm not at all stressed about it.
All that matters now is that Josie has a good time. And since there are balloons and cake involved, that's pretty much a guarantee.

Oh, and my day will be complete because I will get to rub the newest pregnant belly! Yup, my friends are the most fertile around! Baby Mabes will arrive next September.
This means that for the past 2 years straight, one of my besties has been pregnant! At this rate we're never going to be able to all go out for drinks together!

Life is good.

It will be even better in 12 minutes...

Congratulations! What a great feeling to be starting the next great chapter in your life as a SAHM!

I was out hitting up a few consignment stores today, and I found 3 (!) dresses with ladybugs on them and thought of Josie right away.

Have a great time with her birtday, and we will be expecting LOTS of pictures of the big event.

Congrats to you. From reading along for a while I know you are excited about being a SAHM.
I will just live through you & be oh so jealous.

Have a great birthday party tomorrow! And a nice trip.

No more Starbucks for me... Unless I rummage up some change!
