I have this love/hate relationship with our apartment. While it's twice as big as our last place, this also means that it's twice as much to clean. We have two bathrooms instead of one, two bedrooms instead of one, and basically two living rooms (instead of one....yeah yeah you get the picture). We woke up and attacked this apartment with organizing and cleaning--nesting is in full force!

Living in this new apartment also means that when I'm in the bedroom blogging, he's no longer just 5 or 6 feet away in the living room (watching ESPN)'s more like 25 feet. It feels like a HUGE space and I just don't like that very much. I loved our old 625 square feet place that was oh-so-cozy 24/7. It was the perfect place for us newly weds. We loved that whole stage of life of not worrying about anything other than getting good grades and paying our phones and utilities bills (thank you, Papa Freeman for owning our apartment complex). Now we have two cars,  one car payment, rent due every month, utilities, water, gas/electric, phones, cable, baby funds, yadie yadie yadda....

Basically, we are growing up. And this is another love/hate relationship that I deal with on a daily basis. I LOVE the fact that I'm going to be a mommy soon. But a small part of me is a little nerrrvouuusss....Luckily I have a super hard working man who is in fact LOVING being completely independent and who tells me all the time how much he can't wait to have this little boy around. He's going to be such a good daddy! His job has been so great and he continues to learn a lot in it. I'm so fortunate to not have to work, especially with this baby on the way. But I know that if I ever did have to work, I would willingly do anything for this family!

Okay this is turning into a bit of a long post about cheesy stuff. We (you...) don't need any of that. But back to what I intended to talk about: I don't want that cozy feeling of our little apartment of two years to ever go away! So right now I'm going to get up, grab a blanket, and rest my head on my man's leg while he scratches my back and I fall fast asleep. Happy Saturday, and good night!
