changes

I don't think I've ever had so many changes happening all at once.
I've always loved changes.
Maybe even looked for changes.
I constantly change my hair,
my "style",
my nail polish
my sub from Subway...
just small changes that keep life exciting.
 But these changes.
The ones that are quickly approaching aren't small.
They're HUGE.

1. SCHOOL
In less than one month,
I will be finished with school.
I will finally be able to put those two little letters behind my name, RN.
This always felt so far away.
But it's here.
I have my little white nursing dress,
my little white nursing hat,
my BLINGIN' RN pin,
some sexy, white, thigh high pantyhose,
and my graduation announcements.
Doesn't that outfit sound hot?
Don't worry,
I'll be sure to show you a picture of how smokin' I look on May 9th.
I realized the other day that I have never had a break from school.
I won't know what to do with myself.


2. FINDING OUT WHAT MY UTERINE OCCUPANT IS
yes!
In about 3 weeks,
we find out if this baby is a boy or girl!
And we're having a gender reveal party!!!
This is how it's gonna go down:
We will go to the ultrasound.
The ultrasound tech won't tell us what it is.
She will write boy or girl on a piece of paper and stick it in an envelope.
We will immediately take the envelope to the cake lady.
The cake lady will make a cake with either blue or pink cake on the inside.
The reveal party will be that evening,
and we will cut the cake in front of everyone to find out what we're having!
I am so excited, I can't even stand it.

3. HAVING THE BABY
I'm going to be a mom in 5 months....
HOLY COW.
life changer.
I will be able to kiss all over MY baby's chubby cheeks.
I always want to kiss on other baby's chubby cheeks...
but I never do it because I feel like a weirdo.
So my baby better brace itself for all of the smoochin'.
I can't believe our names are getting ready to change from Autumn & Tyler to Mommy & Daddy!

4. FINDING OUT WHERE WE WILL BE LIVING
We're just waiting on God to tell us where to go.
And when he says go,
we're going.
We're pretty sure it's going to be either here (West Virginia), Tennessee or Florida.

5. STARTING MY NURSING CAREER
When we find out where we'll be living,
I get to start searching for an awesome RN job!

6. BUYING A HOUSE
I can't wait to see the house we're going to buy.
I already have it decorated.
Thank you pinterest.

And all of these things will be happening in a about year or less.
Mind blown.
Bring it on!

Ahh! Autumn, I am so excited for you. It feels like just yesterday I was meeting you at Bible School, BUT THAT WAS 12 YEARS AGO.

The gender reveal party sounds awesome! My friend's older sister just had one where one of their friends knew and the pulled down balloons grey for a boy, yellow for a girl. It's a boy!

I can relate! I graduated from college, moved, got married, and started my career within four months in 2008! It all sounds so exciting!
