Happy Birthday to me...

Well in true JessBay style I always seem to do a homage to whomever birthday is approaching. Well, luck for you it's MY birthday tomorrow. A birthday that I have been dreading for quite some time...25. I know, I know, that is not that old, I am still young blah, blah blah. I just feel weird about it for some reason.

If you would have told me at 18 that at 25 I would be starting my 2nd "big girl job" after having one of the worst years of my life, that I would be living in Northwest Ohio with my boyfriend, and just feeling like my life is a blender on high power I would have looked at you like you were crazy! At 25 I was supposed to be married with maybe one child by now, damn those life plans me and my friends made.

I guess in the end all that matters is that I am happy, which I am. I have a wonderful boyfriend who has stuck by me when I know anyone else would have picked up and left, I have a huge, crazy, exhausting family that I love more than anything and friends that I would be lost without. Although I have always wanted to leave Ohio and live somewhere warm, there is always vacation.

Life just doesn't always go the way you planned. Mine sure hasn't, but I think I like this unplanned chaotic life instead. We don't know what we are doing, where we are going, or where we will be in the next few years, but that's ok!

So my plan for tomorrow is to embrace this new "stage" of my life. Spend more time with my family, make more of an effort to connect with my friends (near and far) and just live my life the best way I can.

So here's to another really crazy, really unpredictable, really fun 25 (let's hope more) years!

Have a great weekend!

Where did August go?

I just looked on my blog and saw that I have only done 2 posts this month. Wow that is terrible. But I guess that is what happens when you go on vacation and move and now have no Internet at home til the end of next week. UGH!

So far the move has been good. I love our new apartment and will post pics soon and I am already really liking my new job. As with any new adjustments there are lots of challenges to overcome and things are perfect but we are happy and taking it "one step at a time" lol...sorry I couldn't resist.

It's so strange to feel like we can actually have weekend plans and people to go see, I don't even know what to do with myself. Next weekend is my birthday, the big 2-5 that I have secretly been dreading for quite sometime but I got confirmation last night that my Dad, step mom and all the kids are going to come up and spend the day with us. This would have never been possible if we lived in PA still so at least I will have lots of fun on my birthday swimming and playing with the kiddos.

Well, hopefully there will be new posts soon once we get Internet or I sneak out and blog at a Panera.

Have a great weekend!

Moving is for the birds

As much as I am excited about starting my new job and being closer to home and my family...I'll be quite frank...moving sucks! I am currently sitting on the living room floor listening to the Steelers game with nothing but the tv and a lamp. We have packed up the truck....ok Josh and two of his friends packed up the truck while I supervised but anyways...I am still tired. Packing alone was annoying I don't even want to think about unpacking considering we move in on Saturday and I start work on Monday. But at least we will have lots of help, very exciting.
Tomorrow we are driving 1/2 way to my Mom's house to sleep for the night and then MOVING DAY! I feel like I have waited so long for this for so long yet it is just exhausting.

I have no idea when we will have Internet at our apartment so bare with me.

Have a good weekend!!

I'm so excited!

This post is a long over due exclamation of joy! We went up to our new town this weekend and fell in love with the first place we saw and I just found out we got the apartment!!!! I am so happy and I love this is right by all the shopping and only 30 minutes from work. I am thrilled.

Also, I probably won't be posting for a while. We leave for Vegas in 2 days and then we move very shortly after that! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!

Talk soon,
