My life since March 2009

Wow!  March 2009?  A lot of life has been lived since then!  So, to save you the pain and agony of reading about my life - month by month - for the past (nearly) 4 years, I'll give you the highlights.

1) My babies are no longer babies.  WOO HOO!!  I'm not a huge baby fan, so I'm so super happy that my girls are now officially in the kid stage.  Little Mama is 10 (grade 4) and Baby Angel is 7 (grade 2).  I'm loving this age and phase in my girls' lives.  It is awesome!  We're busy with homework, basketball practice, Girl Scouts, and the like.  Life is full and good and at a perfect blend of busyness and relaxation! 

2)  I graduated with my MBA in May 2011.  I didn't go to grad school with huge expectations of quitting my job or getting a fatty raise (although that would have been nice).  I went to grad school to prove to myself that I could do it.  And I did.  And I had an amazing time along the way and met some awesome people as well.  I'm so happy that I did it, but I'm equally as happy to be done! 

3)  Like G Love, we also sold our home!  In September 2011, we moved to the small town where my husband, Jas, grew up.  We adore our neighborhood.  We adore our home.  We've only lived there for a little over a year, but I still continue to feel blessed.  Our girls are being raised in a wholesome, supportive community.  We couldn't ask for more!  Yes, we have certainly found our home.
4)  And while I may not have diapers to change anymore, I did have another baby.  Huh?  Say what?  Yes, you read right.  On June 23, 2012, I gave birth to my surrobabe!  A sorority sister of mine from college (not a Wonder Woman, although she is fabulous too) went through a very difficult time getting (and remaining) pregnant.  After much prayer, consideration, legal documents, doctor's appointments, medications, injections, etc, we became pregnant with their son.  (bwt - Their son is in NO WAY, SHAPE, or FORM mine.  He has his daddy's sperm and his mama's egg.  I was only his incubator for 38 weeks).  It was an amazing experience and I feel truly honored to have carried him and brought him to life.  He was meant to be with his mama and daddy and I helped make that happen.  My heart is full!

I'm sure much more has happened, but these are the 4 things that stand out most in my mind.  Life goes by far too quickly!  I'm glad we are breathing life back into this blog and I'm glad you are joining us on the journey!

I still just think you are an amazing person for doing what you have done. You have amazing girls. You are amazing for having gone back to school and you are an angel for giving our fellow sister an amazing gift.

I CANNOT tell you how proud I am to know someone who's done something so selfless, Super Jane. You should probably start doing a little crime here and there to balance out the rockin' karma you've got going so there's some left for the rest of us ...
