I'm not a huge fan of birthdays. It's not so much the getting older (although I do hate that there's no way around the fact that I'm in my late twenties), it's more the fact that they're so so so built up and bring with them so many feelings of nostalgia and it's mostly the fact that I hate opening gifts and cards in front of people. I'm not the only one who feels like that, right?
So today I'm just going to share twenty-eight things about myself that you might not* know about me.
*But you probably do know them all because I don't have a filter.
1. MY SISTER GOT ENGAGED LAST NIGHT. I've known this was going to happen for quite a while but have remained tight-lipped, which has been one of the most difficult things I've ever done. And this really doesn't have anything to do with me but I just had to share it.
2. My favorite food is sandwiches.
3. I have a secret desire to be a beauty blogger and film makeup and hair tutorials. Sometimes I film tutorials in my bathroom but then I watch them back and realize they're terrible and I'm not good on video and I delete them.
4. I did my own hair and makeup for my wedding.

So for now, I'm praying for peace, contentment, and patience. Even though I desperately want to be a mother, I don't want that to be where I find my joy or my worth. I don't want to be constantly thinking about "a few years from now" when our family grows by something other than four legged animals. I don't want to wish away the now, because I know when the future I've wished for gets here, I'll get nostalgic about what has passed.
So, if you ask me about babies, now you know what I'm really thinking when I say, "In a few years. We want to travel first."

//Keith turned 29, and he let me take him to see the new X-Men movie. I enjoyed this movie, thankfully. I liked it more than the recent Captain America movie. It's basically Jennifer Lawrence becoming a part of Blue Man Group with a special appearance by a very rugged Jean Valjean. Aaron Rodgers' girlfriend also makes an appearance in an outfit that looks highly impractical for her line of work. Also Robby from Atonement is in a wheelchair.
//ANTS. We have the giant carpenter ants outside (pictured) and I'm worried they're like termites and they're going to make our wooden driveway collapse. Their weaker smaller cousins are currently infesting our kitchen and do you know what is worse than ants? Nothing. Nothing at all.
//Baby Kate loves being a big sister.
