Friday Five full of gushing about something I just can't keep secret (not writing related)

Hey all! Was that the longest title to a blog post ever? Yeah, I try to be unique and cool that way.

Guess what? It's Friday! (Betchya didn't already know that. Ha ha. Ha.)

Okay, usually I do a Friday Five, but here's all I can think about:


1. I have a beautiful new niece who I love.
2. I am going to be a mommy to a GIRL!!!!! I can hardly stand how excited I am!
3. I really need to get going on my most recent WIP. I've been letting it languish in the back of my mind, pulling it out to play with it every once in a while. Time to get down to the grind and get that thing DONE.
4. Did I mention I'm having a GIRL!?!?!?
5. Did I also mention that I have 2 sons and thought that would never happen? I hoped, but figured (since all evidence pointed that way) that Larson men could only create future generations of other Larson men. Thanks for proving my theory wrong SHH!!

I never know when or if I should announce things like that on my blog, but I am just too excited. And too many local authors/friends/followers already know I'm pregnant (apparently the more kids you have, the earlier you show. Who knew? *grumble, grumble* *but not too loud because it's a GIRL!*).

Also, if you'd like to read a "real" post, please head over to the Challenging the Gnome blog where I did a guest post today. I'd be really embarrassed if no one commented, so please read, comment, follow. They have a really fun, unique blog where they all try to tackle their "gnomes"--aka the hard things that are stumbling blocks to them in writing, life, and more. They are awesome, funny, wonderful women with some truly crazy stories from their lives. Enjoy!

Happy Friday!

Congratulations on having a girl. That will be so nice for you. And I hope from the picture I saw of you with your neice, that you live near by and the two girl cousins will have a chance to grow up together and be very special friends.

Yahoo!! I had three boys and then a girl but I had to WAIT to find out! I cried when she was born. Congratulations again. So exciting.

Great news, Sara! I hope you have an uneventful, boring (as in nothing to worry about) pregnancy and...

YOU'RE HAVING A GIRL!!

Take of yourself and get plenty of rest!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! (Can you tell I'm excited?)

Heather Kelly said...

That's so wonderful--I had the same situation--my husband had 3 brothers, and I just assumed we would only have boys, and was very surprised when my third child was a girl. And that's when I realized that I wanted one. LOL. Enjoy. Congrats!!

Trisha Leaver said...

Congrats!!!!!!!! A girl. They are so much fun. Think of all the shoes, and hair ribbons, and matching sets of tiny clothes you can buy.

Kayeleen Hamblin said...

That's so exciting! I just had my little girl a month ago, after having two boys. It's so much fun to have some one tiny to doll up. Congratulations!

Janiel Miller said...

Congratulations! How exciting to finally be getting your girl! This made me laugh out loud and I'm not sure why "that Larson men could only create future generations of other Larson men."

Colene Murphy said...

OMG!!! Congratulations!!! WHOO GIRLS!!!!

Russo said...

Ah, Sara, you are sweet to mention the three gnomes guest post. You stood by us from the beginning. I am grateful for your expertise, girl.

So happy for you and your family!

Lola Sharp said...

CONGRATS!!! ✩♡✩

Oh, the clothes for little girls are so sweet. My daughter is 15 now, and I saved SO much of her clothes through the years because they are too gorgeous to let go. She still power-shops for clothes (and Sephora) with me and we watch chick-flicks and period movies (Pride & Prej., etc.) for hours together. Now we share books and clothes and make up and talk about boys.
(yeah, she has PMS now and once a month gets moody. But it's still wonderful.)

I'm so happy for you. *hugs*

DL Hammons said...

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Such good news, Sara!! A new niece and now a new little girlie for you! How cool they can grow up together. They'll totally be Bffs. I can feel the love already!

Will head on over to the guest post now!

Happy weekend, chickie!
