Yesterday I turned 25. I am now a 'real' adult, I can rent cars and my car insurance has decreased.
I am not where I imagined I would be at 25, married with children was never part of the plan. But I can honestly say there isn't much I would change. Overall I am very happy with my life, there are a few small roadbumps (that seem like mountains at times) that I need to overcome, but I am confident I will get there.

I am going to make this year the best year so far. I am very excited for all the things I have planned and want to attempt before I turn 26. I plan to come back next August and tell everyone what a wonderful year I have had. My birthday is now my 'New Year's'.

In an effort to make the best of the little time I have left here in TN (9 months) I have asked Jason to try and carpool at least 2 days a week. No more sitting around on the weekends. There is the library, the playground, the Farmer's Market and the museum is free on Sundays. Plus fall is coming, that means farms have activites! (I think there may even be a few 'Pick your Own' farms around here)
Most importantly is making the best of the time I have left with Jason before he deploys. I am going to miss him that is for sure.

Jack's birthday is around the corner! Well more like down the block and around the corner, but close nonetheless!
He will be recieving these two items from us:
Melissa and Doug Easel
Toddler basketball hoop
His birthday is October 03, but his party wont be until November when all the family comes for Thanksgiving. My plan is to give him the basketball hoop in October so he can get some good play with it before it gets too cold. The easel will be given to him at his family party.
Also since we don't really know enough people to throw a party for him, I think maybe Jason and I will just take him somewhere special, maybe Chuck E. Cheese after a day at the Zoo?

At the moment my plan for financing his birthday gift (Cause it is a little expensive) is to try and sell more diapers and take some of his old, outgrown clothes and sell them to Once Upon a Child.
As for Christmas, because I have that list already growing, I think I may try and buy one gift per paycheck. Most of the things I want to get him for Christmas are under $20 so it should be doable.
