I decided that I would only set one goal for 2014, and that would be to "ENJOY every moment as much as possible". The first few months hold a handful events that I have been looking forward to with so much eagerness in my heart. Sometimes life throws a curve ball and you might need to take a step back and rethink how these exciting events will be fully enjoyed under unexpected circumstances.

Let's first countdown to said events and then discuss further:

34 days until Britney in Vegas. It seems like a lifetime ago that I wrote about this and I can't believe it's a month away.

67 days until our Maui trip. FINALLY!! a REAL vacation. One of my goals for 2013 was to take a "real vacation", but this trip took FOREVER to finally come through (saving that for another post).

95 days until Babe's 5th Birthday. Yes, this is a HUGE event. I have literally had this birthday theme picked out since his 3rd birthday and started buying stuff last summer. I might be more excited than him, just a little.


176 days until Baby #2 is due. Yup, we're having a baby.

So, this is the reason my main goal this year will be to "enjoy". Last year when I wrote out my goals, my hope was that I would accomplish them all BEFORE having baby #2. I must admit that I did pretty well besides not taking a vacation and half assing on the minimalist thing (something I still really want to work on). But once it started getting closer to the end of the year, I faced the fact that 1. my husband was NOT ready for another baby and 2. neither was I because I still wanted that damn vacation AND I had a Britney trip now planned in Feb.
And then less than 1 week after we bought our Maui tickets... I found out I was pregnant.
The first few weeks all I could think about was the plans I already had, that did not include me being with child, but as 2014 rolled around I realized there is nothing I can do but try to make the most of it. So what if I can't have a delicious fruity cocktail before seeing Britney perform and so what if I can't zip line in Maui... as long as I'm well enough to be present, I might as well enjoy it... right?!
