29 Years

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM

Today I'm 29 years old which is so hard to believe. It's crazy I'm almost out of my 20's. My birthday has totally creeped up on me this year. I'm actually working on my birthday, which I hate to do, I think everyone should have their birthday off, then we're heading out of town when I get home from work so there won't be any celebrating till next week. I didn't ask for anything for my birthday but a prenatal massage so if Theo doesn't get me that I'll be a pretty angry woman! :) Today in honor of my 29th birthday I'm going to share 29 random facts about myself. Here we go!

1. I was born in Conway, SC

2. I moved to Charleston, SC when I was 1 year old and haven't lived anywhere else since.

3. I'm left handed.

4. I have one brother who is 3 years younger than me.

5. I play with hair way too much. It's a nervous habit and I do it while I'm deep in thought. Theo always asks me what I'm thinking about when I start to play with my hair.

6. I love chocolate peanut butter more than anything and I swear it's because my mom ate Reeses when she was pregnant with me.

7. I'm terrified of roaches. I won't even pick them up to throw them away if they're dead.

8. I was kind of a late bloomer as my mom likes to call me. I didn't decide what I wanted to do till I was 22 years old. But once I set my mind to it, I did it.

9. My parents divorced when I was in 6th grade.

10. My mom remarried when I was in 8th grade.

11. I have zero relationship with my real father, my step father is who walked my down the aisle.

12. Theo and I will have been together for 10 years in December.

13. He's the best thing that ever happened to me and I love him more than anything.

14. As I get closer to my due date, I'm getting more scared about going into labor. I don't like the unknown and not having control.

15. I can't wait to be a mommy and I love this little boy so much already.

16. I have Polycystic Kidney Disease. I got it from my mom who got it from my grandfather. I pray the baby doesn't get it.

17. I'm so excited about having a son but I also hope that one day I have a daughter so we can have the same bond my mom and I have.

18. I'm a very impatient person and really don't like to teach. I'd rather just do it myself. 

19. At home, I can be pretty lazy. I'm trying to get better about it. 

20. I have a Labradoodle named Pixie. 

21. I love all dogs but can't stand cats. I'll never own a cat.

22. I only own brown or grey purses. I like to stick to neutrals but not black, I never wear black.

23. I don't like watching a lot of TV unlike Theo who has to have the TV on at all times. 

24. I drink 2-3 liters of water a day. I was this way before I was pregnant too. I only drink water, I can't stand sodas.

25. I'm a Registered Nurse and work in the Recovery Room. I take care of patients after surgery.

26. I love it because you only have the patient for an hour and they're generally healthy, nice people. But I also hate it because the surgery schedule is unpredictable and I never know when I'm getting off work.

27. I've become an early morning, early to bed person lately. I'm exhausted by 10pm and awake at 7am. I used to be the kind of person who slept in late.

28. I'm an impulse online shopper and will get so excited about something, order it, then get it, and be over it. I'm gotten better since being pregnant because the idea of clothes just annoys me!

29. I'm really not dreading turning 30 in a year. I'm just so excited about growing our family and taking on this next stage in our life.

Now it's your turn, share something random about yourself!
