I am still in shock and feel so honored that Shell asked me to be the Blog Friend Feature today. I may or may not have almost started crying when I read her e-mail asking me to be the BFF for today. I don’t exactly remember when or how I found Shell, but I do remember the first time that she replied to one of my comments. It made me feel so special! Now I feel even more awesome because I am actually posting on HER blog! I think that deserves some Jazz Hands!
So since the name of this blog is ” Things I Can’t Say”, I may as well talk about something that is hard for me to admit. It’s not exactly something that I can’t say, it is more like something that I do not like to admit.
Ok, here it is…I never wanted to have kids. There I said it! Phew! No really, I never did. I know that those of you who have read my blog before find it hard to believe, but it is true. I was way too wrapped up in myself to even imagine taking care of children.
When I was younger I would always say how I was never going to settle down and get married and have kids because life was too much fun. I didn’t want to slow down at all. Unfortunately, I ended up getting into a lot of trouble..leaving college before I graduated and going into a deep depression because of everything. But you know how some people say that once you find your “soul mate” that everything will just feel right? (Or something like that…I am not good at remembering quotes from all of the partying that I used to do.) Well once I met my hubs, I just knew that I would be ok and that I wanted to have a family with him.
Lucky for me (or not lucky) he came with a kid. Instant family. Well, not exactly instant but you can read more about that here. As soon as we got married I wanted a baby and we both agreed. Well lucky us, we got pregnant on the first try. I had no idea. I figured that it would take a while. Yeah, not so much. So 8 months later we welcomed a beautiful baby girl.
I really just couldn’t imagine my life any other way. I believe that there is a reason for everything and I believe that if my life would’ve been different early on I may not have met the hubs. I am also so thankful for finding out about blogging. I love being able to tell my story to others. It is nice to have others out there supporting me. I just wish I would’ve found about blogging sooner!

I totally promise that my blog is not all about sunshine and rainbows and wow look at my kids. I am the Random Blogette because my blog is nothing but randomness. I hope that you enjoy it! And thanks Shell for featuring me today. I feel truly honored!
