Let Me Introduce Myself

Posted on Aug 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hello, Folks!

First off, I’d like to say that this blog would totally be titled “Pregnant in Heels” if it weren’t for that silly Bravo show.  Stupid copyright laws.

If you’re reading this first post, you probably already know me.  Thus, you already know that I am a total Type-A, perfectionist freak.  If you’ve stumbled upon this by accident and don’t know me, let me introduce myself: I am a total Type-A, perfectionist freak.  I’m also 27 weeks pregnant, as of today.  Let’s just say pregnancy has enhanced my more neurotic tendencies.

I’m the type who goes to yoga religiously because I know it’s good for me, but makes to-do lists in my head during shavasana. (At my first pre-natal yoga class, I had a mild panic attack when the instructor announced we would be having 20 minutes of “relaxation” time.  Seriously.  20 Minutes!)  I’ve been known to abandon completely full shopping carts after realizing the items I’ve selected don’t coordinate perfectly.  (My deepest apologies to the Bed, Bath & Beyond staff.)  I spend an unhealthy amount of hours researching things like cribs only to suffer extreme anxiety over my final decision.  Jury’s out on whether or not I’ll actually keep the one I just ordered.

To be fair, these things aren’t that abnormal.  I don’t think.  But as some major changes come down the pipeline, I figured a blog might be a good outlet.  Even though, let’s be honest, most blogs are a totally narcissistic undertaking.  Now – what be those changes, you ask?

1) Baby on Board.  Duh.

2) I’m entering the world of Professional Housewives (temporarily).  Considering my cooking skills are nil and I abhor most household-related tasks, this does not bode well for my sanity.

3) My hubby and I (and baby-to-be) are moving to Japan next year.  Sure, that’s not for another 10 months or so, but knowing that we’re moving across the world in less than a year has already begun affecting our daily lives.

On another note, my major life interests include: Fashion, food (a very unfortunate interest, considering my aforementioned lack of cooking skills) and fitness, all of which I will address as I feel so inclined.  Oh, and travel.  But besides the anticipated move to Asia, I don’t see much of that happening in my near future, with baby and all.

I think that’s enough for now.  Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy!
