My List

September 16th, 2016 at 08:55 am

I haven't been around much lately because it seems like my world is spinning much faster than I'd like. To quickly summarize, we are dealing with increased responsibilities at my job, a recent move, a potential new job for DH, and my biggest reason for keeping quiet...a house! I'll elaborate later, but for now, here's my list:

1. I turn 30 this year and started this blog with the intent of being fully debt free by that age.
2. Since starting the blog, I've been through 3 moves, a new relationship that turned into a marriage, and this coming Monday will be closing on our first home. Needless to say, that whole debt-free thing is not going to happen.
3. I live in the DMV area and traffic here is an absolute nightmare.
4. I got married this past May and will celebrate 4 incredible months on 9/21.
5. DH and I have 2 dogs and a cat (Bouncer, Riley, and Katniss). I'm so in love with our little family.
6. I coach kids' cheerleading. It is one of the most rewarding, and frustrating, things I've ever done.
7. DH and I really can't wait to expand our family and have children, but with all of our recent life changes, I've recently become super committed to putting that off until our financial situation is more stable.
8. I've never been outside the U.S.
9. I'm an interesting blend of cultures: Filipino, Spanish, French, and German. No one can ever really tell what I am. Our future kids will be that + Navajo and Guatemalan.
10. I've always been afraid of cooking, but I've really blossomed in the past few years. While I still mostly follow recipes, I am getting more comfortable with experimenting and making my own choices/substitutions.
11. About a month ago, I discovered that you can bake hard-boiled eggs, and I will never cook them on the stove top again.
12. I've never met any SA bloggers in person, but I do think it would be fun to do!

    Wow, congrats on the new house! Makes it so much easier to live with pets when it's your own place.

    While I'm not a very interesting blend (mostly German with some Swedish in there), my husband is 100% English and my wife is African-American with some Swedish and Native American, so our kids are interesting blends. They'll probably get lots of questions when they're older about why they don't look much alike and why they have so many parents, but so far so good!

    @Ceejay, that's just one of the things we're really excited about with the place - it has a HUGE backyard for the dogs to run around in (we just need to fence it in). I'd been keeping it under wraps because I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop, and sure enough, right after I mentioned it, I found out we'll have to delay closing until at least Tuesday since we don't have the closing disclosure yet. And that is quite the family blend!

    Yay for house! Yay for cultural diversity!

    And I have dear friends with a cat named Katniss (assuming Bouncer and Riley are the dogs?). Otherwise change "cat" to "pet". Smile
