Crazy hormones!!!

So everyone that is close to me lately has probably noticed I'm a little moody! Its really hard to hold this in all the time! I am in my 6th week of pregnancy so I have a LONG ways to go!
I always thought being pregnant would be super easy. And so far it hasn't been too bad. Not easy per say but not difficult either. Just nausea, exhaustion, and mood swings.
Thankfully I have an amazing husband who is super considerate. I will have just gotten totally upset over something stupid and he wont even bring it up. He just holds me until I am back to my normal self.
So to all the other pregnant couples, or married couples: Mood swings happen in girls whether or not we are pregnant- just a lil worse when we are. So to all the husbands please be patient and loving we will be ourselves soon enough. This is a scary time and we need all the love and support we can get!!!

New twist in the marriage!!!

So today I took a test to prove to my husband that I was not pregnant! But to my surprise I am!!! I am so excited to have my own little family but completely shocked at the same time. It has its scary moments already but I am so happy already. I already Love it more than anything- except my husband that is!! Well not much to say tonight. Just sharing my joy with the world. The Tharp Family is about to expand to 3!!!

Changing my Christmas Views...

So I love Christmas! But I am usually quite picky about it.
No music, decorations, or anything Before Thanksgiving. I thought people were super selfish and thats why they would push Christmas in front of Thanksgiving! Man was I ever wrong!
This is my first Christmas being married! So I am a little eager. I am eager for THanksgiving too. Don't get me wrong. But that holiday has mostly turned into a day to gorge ourselves. Instead of a day to be thankful.
But around Christmas people are charitable, giving, and happy. It is a great feeling! So of course I am pushing for it to come faster. Today is only November 14th and I already have my Christmas tree up. Plus we watched our first Christmas movie today!
So for all the people who are like I use to be and upity about when we can start celebrating. Relax and have fun Christmas only comes once a year. So let us celebrate as soon as we want!
TO all the newlyweds and engaged couples: Enjoy the holidays together!!! The first one is always the most exciting(anyways that is what I have heard)! Just remember what the holidays are all about! After all this year you have even more to be Thankful for!!!!

Not myself

So lately I'm not sure what has been up with me.... Just something... I just haven't been myself. I'm usually an optimist but I turned into a total pessimist. I could tell it was happening but couldn't really do anything to stop it. The more I noticed the worst things got. Nothing seemed to help permenantly. Occasionaly something small would bring me back for just a moment but it was usually short lived!!
I finally decided enough was enough. I tried to figure out what was wrong with me. I was super stressed out for a ton of different reasons. Mostly money. A new job- even though I love it it is stressful. A small/trashed apartment- which even though it was driving me nuts I was so exhausted that I did nothing about it! Unexplainable exhaustion!!
Thankfully my husband is incredible! He has been supportive and loving! Eventually things started turning around. When I noticed I was becoming worse I started trying more. Getting more rest, trying to straighten the apartment more, and money finally turned around. We make plenty of money but budgeting is the problem! We finally created a system that works!
So to all the engaged couples and newlyweds: Girls and guys have weird times. When they just need someone to hold them without questions. I know its hard for us to always understand each other but just remember we will eventually be ourselves again and love you even more for being with us!!!
