New Year, New Changes

As we get some more snow and some ice today, I figured it would be a good time to catch up my blog. So much has happened since my last post, I don’t know where to begin! I guess the big news is that my husband and I are expecting our first child. The best birthday present I could have gotten. We are very excited. I am 16 1/2 weeks along now. Into my second trimester and still having “morning” sickness. It’s been a rough pregnancy so far, but I still have hopes that I will start to feel better soon. Luckily I am going through this with some friends (I have three friends here in CT that are pregnant too, all due within 7 weeks of each other!), although none of them have been sick. Just me. But it’s so great to have friends to talk to and share advice with that are all going through it together for the first time.

There have been a lot of changes at work too. I finally attained my ASA this past fall. After doing so and deciding to start a family, I have decided to stop taking actuarial exams. Which means, no more student position at work. Therefore I am in the process of looking for a full time position. Job hunting while pregnant – quite stressful! I don’t recommend it. At the same time, my husband is starting his own business (, which is exciting and scary at the same time.

Picture Time….

Here are some pictures from the blizzard we had last week. Thank goodness we had the snowblower working. We got over two feet of snow. I don’t think I have seen that much snow since I was a kid. Thankfully technology allowed me to work from home that day (today too for that matter).

My neighbor's house, but a beautiful shot from my back steps

Another view from my back steps of a different neighbor's house

The front of our house - the arbor is buried!

You can barely see the shovelers!

The snow on either side of me was literally up to my hips.

The path to the garage.

Next, here are some pictures of our Christmas decorations. We actually put some lights up outside this year. Unfortunately we had to take our tree down the night before we had guests so the town would take it. What a bummer!

Front of the house. I love the window lights and the arbor.

Christmas Jovi - What have you done to me??

Jovi at my uncle's...resting on the zebra rug while we open presents.

I suppose I can save pictures from this past fall for another post. Enjoy the snow day!
