Life Lately…

Helllllllo friends!

So I know I have been a little MIA for the past few months and y’all know that is because I was busy adjusting to life with a baby. Well the first phase of that adjustment is done. Little Miss has made it safely to the 5 month mark. She is a healthy little baby girl with a sweet little personality.

So what have I been up to now? Well I have rejoined the rat-race of life and am back at work. I started on Monday and while it is not what I want it is what I have to do right now. I am back to working from 6am till 5pm which means I am up at 4:30am, out the door by 5:15am and do not get home till about 5:15pm. Makes for a very long day. I now only see the baby for maybe an hour and a half at best at night and while it is NO WHERE near ideal it is what it is right now. Mr. Big Truck is home with her taking care of her all day so at least I know she is in good hands. We are in a waiting period right now for Mr. Big Trucks new job. Once he starts his I will be able to cut back on my hours considerably. The ultimate goal is for me to be home full-time come December 2015 thanks to his job and the extra income we are making with AdvoCare.

I was just looking at our calendar for the next month or so and it seems like EVERY weekend we have something planned. I am not too sure how I feel about this. This coming weekend we will be visiting one of Mr. Big Trucks family members. We are also going to go to a Fall Festival by us. The following weekend is right now the only open weekend of the month! The one after that, Mr. Big Truck is helping at the work morning at our church and Little Miss has a dr apt. Then the last weekend of the month is Halloween. I could keep going but I am just gonna stop there because I am already overwhelmed with everything.

Another thing I am starting to think about and I am sad about this is Christmas. I need to start shopping. Well I guess I already have. I have picked up a few things here and there if I am out and about and see something that I think is a good fit for someone. Thankfully I have ideas of what everyone is getting it is just a matter of getting things ordered or getting to a store to get things.

We also have our first wedding anniversary coming up. We will be married a year already! What?!?! It has gone FAST! Granted throwing a kid into the mix probably had A LOT to do with that.

Yesterday I peaced out of work early which was nice and Mr. Big Truck and I took #babybigtruck to a local farm and went for a hayride, roamed around the corn maze, and picked a pumpkin. After we went by my moms and hung out with them for a bit then went to dinner with them.

While we were at dinner #babybigtruck was having a deep conversation with Grandpa until our food came. Once we got our food she was sitting on my lap and I had some grilled zucchini and she went to town on it while we were eating. When I say went to town I mean full on grunting and making all kinds of noises while she was eating. Don’t you dare take food away from her while she is eating either because you will PISS her off.

So yeah that is what has been going on in the Big Truck family. Now please excuse me while I go figure out some meals for the coming week so we can do some grocery shopping. Read so Mr. Big Truck can do some grocery shopping. Boy I love that man!

  Hugs, Nikki
