this fall.

I have a feeling that this fall is going to be one of the most interesting seasons of my life. I am officially a full-time student and Drake as of a few minutes ago. I'm excited to finally get some hours under my belt that are going to lead me to graduation in a few years.*

Also, I still can't quite wrap my brain around the fact that Jack is going to be done with school in a month and a half. What happens after that is all up in the air. Thinking about it makes me nervous and excited at the same time. I want to know where he will be working and living, but it doesn't matter because I'm so excited for him to be close to me and Carter(finally!!!!!).

In other news... A year ago today I was extremely pregnant and nervous for Jack to fly into town for Carter's birth. It's crazy how much can change in a year... and I still can't believe that Carter is going to be 1 on Sunday.

Oh... and Carter is starting to walk now!!

*Not all my hours transferred and I wasn't far into the education program when I left Luther.

Texts from Chloe

I'm sure you all remember the posts with the hilarious conversations with my sister Chloe. Well now, thanks to popular demand, I have started a blog just for her quirky convos!

My phones dictionary already recognizes textsfromchloe... Oh this will be good ;)

cheer up!

The other day my friend texted me saying that she was sad. She felt like she had lost a lot of friendships and was having boy problems. I told her to cheer up and that we would talk about it later.

After losing a lot of friends in the past few years it's made me realize that it isn't something to dwell on. Ever since having Carter I'm obviously not in the same place in life as most of my friends and I have come to be understanding that most of the time people don't necessarily want my baby tagging along(even though he's super cute, he has become very difficult to take places*).

It made me realize that there are a lot of things that you can't let get you down. Ever since writing my post the other day about getting my hopes up about something and basically being depressed the rest of the day, I have tried to not let myself get down about petty things. If a friend blows me off, they're gonna know I'm not happy about it, but I'm not gonna dwell on it.

My advice to people who are down right now: don't let it keep you down. If you are missing a friend-call them up. If you are unhappy in your relationship-end it, or work on it until you're happy. If you feel lonely or bored-go for a run or a walk, or go work out! Things don't have to stay the way they are and you don't have to be unhappy. Try to look on the bright side :)

*Carter is now 11 months old(crazy, right?!?!?) which means he is officially trying to kill himself 24-7. Putting anything and everything in his mouth, climbing onto perilous ledges and hitting my dog that likes to bite. And when I make him stop doing these things he usually screams at me. So when he's in a mood for screaming(which is a lot lately because his nap schedule is anything but on schedule) it makes public outings... difficult.

Every once in a while I get really excited about something, and for one reason or another it doesn't happen when I expect it to. Like, I could have an awesome day and still be depressed because this one thing didn't happen.

That happened today.

And it makes me mad that I'm sad(enough emotions already, Chelsea. Your readers are getting whiplash!!). I hung out with my mom all morning at the farmers market downtown and ate lots of yummy food. Then I went to a movie(Snow White and the Huntsman-so good!) with my sister while my mom and grandma watched our babies. And just because it didn't work out for me to go wedding dress shopping, I got all upset.

Really? Boo hoo! Cry me a river and build me a bridge-get over it!

I could go wedding dress shopping every freaking day for the entire summer to make up for today!! Why am I down?? I really need to get out of this habit of getting myself down so easily. It's really not that big if a deal!!

So on a more happy note...

I got a ring! Cute, eh? My sister picked it out :)
