Usually the week starts with Monday's, but... I'm going to start with today just for fun!
Today, Justin and I will be cleaning up the house a bit, but mainly relaxing together just watching TV. Family dinner is at our house this week, so last night I started a big pot of homemade chili- Yum! It has been cooking over night, and all day today... well until about 5:30 when it will be served tonight!
In a way, it's kind of been torcher! We have been sitting her smelling the chili cooking for soooo long, that all we want to do is eat it, but we can't yet! But I guess the build up will just make it that much better when we can actually eat it lol. Family is expected to show up around 5:30 and will probably stay for a couple hours, best of all, Justin's parents are bringing their dogs over so Riley will get to play with Kobe (a border collie) in our backyard for a while tonight, which will make him a happy boy!
Other then dinner tonight, tomorrow I actually have an interview at a company I'm VERY excited to interview for! A couple weeks ago I sent my resume to a company called CS Partners based in Hartland (just 15 minutes away.) When this company does is help, maintain, organize, and run the charter schools in the Livingston County area. The department I would be working in would be mainly focusing on the Charyl Stockwell charter school in Hartland and Kensington Woods charter high school in Howell. The position would actually be incredibly perfect for me too. Since Justin and I are expecting our first baby due in May, this job is part time (but still provides 20-30 hours a week, which would work great for us.) The other reason this job would be perfect is the pay; even with it being a part time job, I'd be making about just as much as my full time position in the business development center in a car dealership about 25 minutes from our house.) So here's to hoping that all goes well with the interview tomorrow! I'm very excited about it, but also nervous, since I want it so bad!
Then Thursday is going to be a great day for us... we find out the sex of our unborn child! My ultrasound appointment is at 9am Thursday morning. We have invited along Justin's mom (soon-to-be grandma) and Justin's sister-in-law, Katie (soon-to-be aunt and one of my great friends) to tag along and find out with us. Justin will be taking a couple hours off from work to go with me also. It will be the first time he sees baby wiggling around on the ultrasound, so I'm sure he's really excited (he didn't get to go with me last time, but he has heard the heartbeat.)
After the ultrasound appointment, Katie and I have decided that since I will be a first-time-mom, she offered to help me with my registry! So after the appointment, she and I will be going to Target and Walmart and maybe having lunch somewhere in a way to "celebrate" finding out the gender of baby :-)
So it should be a good week! We are really excited, as I'm sure many others are as well lol. My mom constantly asks me if we know what baby is yet, and I always tell her "Nope, the 22nd!"
Here's looking forward to the rest of the week!!!!
