Waiting for Baby Number 2: Chrissie

I'm so happy to have these wonderful ladies
that were willing to guest post for me while I have Jade/adjust to multiple motherhood!
 
Today we have the wonderful Chrissie from Making Memories!
Her son Joshua is adorable,
and shes due with her second baby (A GIRL!!) in the Fall!
 I'm so excited for her and for us to kinda figure this out together hahaha
Take it away Chrissie!

Hey everyone!
I'm Chrissie from Making Memories and I "met" Ali when I came across her blog a couple years ago,
got chatting and discovered we had a fair amount in common.
We both love all things Disney, we are both members of the same Church,
we both started dating our future husbands in 2007,
then waited for them as they served Missions for our Church from 2008-2010,
then we both got engaged to our Hubby's soon after they got home and the 4 of us were married on the same day in December 2010
and then we both had our first child in 2012;
of course Ali had a beautiful girl, and I had a boy!
And guess what?!
As Ali has her second little lady... I am due in two months to have my own little girl :)
I am so excited I get to guest post for Ali... She's awesome!
Here's my family and I :)
So for my guest post, I've decided to tell you a little about the challenge I am currently doing called 101 Goals in 1001 Days which you can find in the chapter section of my blog.
The first goal I completed 100 Happy Days.
I don't usually take photos every day so I ended up taking photos of my food and random everyday items in attempt not to overload my facebook page with photos of my boys.
But, it made me appreciate the little things of life as well as the big.

From yummy scrummy food
To my Husband's Graduation with a Teaching degree from University

and finding out Joshua would be a big brother soon!!
I truly have a lot to be grateful for.
The next goal I completed was to do a sort out of Joshua's extensive wardrobe and toy collection. Man, this took waaaay longer than I expected.
But I did it! With some help from the Hubby ;)
and we end up with five bags of toys and clothes to give to others.
It felt so good to help other people, especially when we have been helped so much ourselves every step of the way since we got married
which has been a real blessing being new parents while my husband Matt was still a student.

Because of the help we received I was able to go back to work part-time rather than full-time.
I also had the freedom to choose to have a job I enjoyed rather than going back to a job that wasn't so exciting.
And let me tell you, going back to work is a toughie when all you want to do is be a stay-at-home Mum.
But I get to work an aquarium which I love!


So there's a little about me.
If you want to keep up to date with my goal progress
then do feel free to pop over to my blog once in a while.
I have a lot of goals to get through and
I'm sure I'll learn a lot of things and have fun along the way.

Isn't she so sweet!?
I love this girl!
Now go head over to her blog and love on her and her adorable family!
