31 reasons to be Thankful…

Wowzas, it’s been a while guys. I do apologize! I’ve been one busy little bee. I have missed you guys though.

Yesterday I celebrated my 31st birthday. I honestly cannot believe that I am 31 years old, because I feel like I’m about 23. Age is just a number, am I right?

I have the best husband who always makes sure I have the BEST birthdays. We went to my parents house over the weekend for a little family birthday cookout and some football watching (HOW ABOUT THEM RED RAIDERS). Yesterday morning (my actual bday) I woke up to the most BEAUTIFUL tennis bracelet to match my wedding ring. I know guys, I am a lucky girl. The good news about turning 31 is you get to wear fancy jewelry!! Then last night we went out to dinner with my favorite people to one of our favorite places! I ended my perfect day with a long bubble bath! Perfection!

I wanted to take some time to reflect on the past year. I have to be honest, it’s been the hardest year of my life. A lot of sadness, a ton of disappointment. But guys, we made it through. I found this quote yesterday and I felt like it defined my year perfectly.

Year 31 for me is a year of hope and possibility. I don’t know where God is leading me or what He is doing, but I do know that I can make through anything with His grace and perfect love. His plans are way better than mine, He’s proved it time and time again.

Well guys, I hope you have an excellent Tuesday!!

Monday Rambling

Happy Monday, Pretties. I haven’t shown up around these parts in about a week or so…so I figured a random list of what’s been happenin’ would be ok!

  • School started today. I haven’t had a first day of school in 8 years. wowzas…I feel old. I have to admit, I LOVE seeing all of my friends little babes in their new school clothes ready to start the year. My nephew also started his first day of “school” today. I wouldn’t be a very good aunt if I didn’t show how freaking adorable he is in his outfit. He’s such a stud.

  • We went to the lake this weekend for some much needed rest and relaxation! I swear I will never get tired of going there. Also, like good little Texas road trippers, we stopped to take a photo next to a giant long horn. You are welcome.

  • Doing life with this guy is fun. He’s the bees knees. (mustache and all) Also, matching fishing shirts are where it’s at!!Featured image
  • I went in for my progesterone test on Friday, and everything is PERFECT!!! Yay!! One week to go.
  • Speaking of one week to go, a little bit of anxiety has set in. I am going to try my hardest to not be too stressed out this week. I will keep you posted on how that is going!!

Praying today for peace!!! I know I can’t do this on my own!!

Now…we wait!!!

Well, we did it! We made it through our IUI on Sunday! Without sparing TMI, numbers that needed to be high were SUPER high and everything looked really good! It was a little bit uncomfortable…I wasn’t really expecting that. But all in all I feel really, really good about it!

The good news is I had (practically) zero side effects to the Clomid or the trigger shot. That was the part I was worried about the most.

Thanks so much to everyone for your kind words, prayers and support. This community of ours is really something special 🙂

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!! Here’s to a quick and painless TWW!!

The Dreaded Waiting Game

Well here I am, smack in the middle of the dreaded two week wait.

My anxiety seems to be through the roof during this time. Everything I have read seems to tell me I need to relax, breathe, stay calm. But how do you actually do that. How in the world can you stay calm when for the past 16 months you have done this time after time, and by the end of it…there is always disappointment.

I finally broke down and got an appointment with a fertility specialist, and as suspected, I won’t be able to get in until June. I am hoping that I will be able to cancel my appointment 🙂

If anyone has any tips to make this waiting game a little better, I am all ears!

The good news is, it’s almost Friday!!!!!!!!

The better news is we are headed to Dallas this weekend for a wedding, and I get to see so many of my favorite people!!

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!!
