Life According to Plan… Or Maybe Not
Hello! I’m excited to start this new Blog and share with you some of what life is like for me outside of the TV studio. I may not have the most interesting life in the world, but I do think I am a lot like many of you…. a hard working, loving wife, who is now expecting her first baby. I’ll start with being honest about one thing, I’m a little nervous about how life is going to be when I start juggling all three!
However, what I do know is that I love my job, I love my husband, and I love the idea of becoming a Mom. So, how can three things that you love so much not come together and work out perfectly? Don’t worry, I just laughed out loud too. I know it won’t be easy, but I look forward to sharing my upcoming journey and hopefully getting some advice and encouragement from you along the way. Every blog entry won’t be about babies and pregnancy, but because that was the news of the week I will start there.
If there is one thing I have learned in life so far, it has to be that life almost never goes according to plan. The most recent reminder for me was when I found out I was pregnant a few months ago. No, it’s not what you’re thinking… this was not an “oops” pregnancy. Instead, my husband and I had no idea we would have to wait almost two years to finally hear the news that we were going to be parents.
My Dad AND Grandma are TWINS for goodness sakes…. I was “supposed” to have twins or at the very least not have any trouble getting pregnant. I got a little taste of infertility and wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. But in the end, after a lot of patience and prayer, my husband and I finally got the exciting news we had been so anxiously waiting to hear. If all goes well and according to “plan”(there I go again) , our baby should be here in the fall. Yay!
With all that said, something else I have learned is that even though life may not always go according to “plan”…. It can sometimes be even better than what your plan was in the first place.
