U is for...

U is for University
I think I have mentioned that I am taking classes, but I don't think I have ever gone into specifics.  In case anyone actually cares, I have an Associate's Degree in Professional Office Administration with a Legal Specialty, but never went beyond interviewing in law offices.  The legal classes I took were interesting, but it wasn't the path I was looking for after all.

I eventually found a job at a bank that I really enjoyed, and decided to take a few banking classes at the nearby university through a program at my work. I enjoyed them, and decided to pursue my Bachelor's in Business Administration. I ended up choosing a different university because they offered more options for online courses, which worked better with two small children and a full time job. As you probably know, I am not working any longer. I left so that I could be home with my children and begin homeschooling the oldest. However, with my transfer credits and the courses I had already completed, I was so close to finishing that I didn't see the point in giving up. I believe you finish what you start. I was on track to graduate this coming spring, but as you can see below...another "U" in my life may postpone that to the summer.

U is also for Ultrasound!
Yes, that is a surprise little peanut! This was taken at 8 weeks 1 day. I am now finishing up my first trimester, which I think might explain why I have not been posting much over the last several weeks or been able to read my favorite blogs. I'm starting to feel a little better, though still fatigued, but I think the worst of it is almost over. While it was a surprise, we are always thankful for God's blessings! In case you're wondering, we're not "hoping" or "praying" for a girl this time. We pray for a healthy baby and that God blesses us as He sees fit.

  1. Oh my goodness, congratulations!!! Yay how exciting!

    I had to LOL at the hoping or praying for a girl. People assumed (incorrectly) that we tried for a girl, and I can't tell you how many people told me "sorry" when we found out we were having our 3rd and 4th boys. I love my family and wouldn't change a thing. God knows exactly how each of our families should be. I'll be praying for a healthy little one for you and an easy pregnancy.

  4. Hi Brittney! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!! That is so exciting!! I too laughed at the "hoping or trying for a girl" comment. I too was asked that so many times in my most recent pregnancy with our 3rd blessing of a boy! We too prayed for a healthy baby and God saw fit to bless us with another boy! I will be praying for you and your pregnancy! Congrats!

    1. Thank you! I've started telling people that at this point with two boys, I'm not even sure I would know what to do with a girl. God doesn't make mistakes, so we will be thankful for what he blesses us with!

  5. Congratulations!! I got tired of people asking if we were "trying" for a girl too. Of course I wanted a girl, but I hated that people would imply that I was somehow disappointed in my boys, because they would ask in front of them. We had three boys and then a girl, which was perfect for us.

    Praying for a healthy happy pregnancy and baby for you!
