Our parents are less than 30 minutes away, my grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins (when they are in town from college) live less than an hour away and my family in New Orleans (I LUV LUV LUV NOLA!!!) are only a 6 hour drive from mi casa.
They are awesome people! Its great having them near by, and I love hanging out with everyone BUT I'm getting a little tired of the big B question coming up when I meet up with certain members of my family that shale remain nameless ( YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!).
The answer to the baby question is my husband and I are not ready for one yet.
We want one eventually, but not now.
We would both like to be more settled in our professional lives first as well as have accomplished a few more things...
For me, these few extra accomplishments I need to complete before becoming a hot mama are as follows:
Attend La Tomatina
This awesome event is probably one of the best food fights you can attend anywhere...ever!
The festival is held on the last Wednesday of August each year in the town of Bunol in Valencia, Spain. During the festival ten metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets in exactly one hour.
It's a huge mess!!!
I WANT TO GO!!!
..but its also a bit of a huge zesty moshpit and therefore can be a bit dangerous... When you have kids you now have a little person that depends on you to return from zesty moshpits of doom so this is something that will need to be done before all of that responsibility.
This just looks fun to me, but my reasoning for wanting to get it done before kids goes back to my previous comment on having a mini-me depending on my ability to land on my feet.
