Today is a very special day!  It's 35/35 day!  What's that mean, you ask?  Well as of today, I am 35 weeks with 35 days left to go.  Can you believe it?  I sure can't!  This little boy will be here before I know it and I am absolutely ecstatic about it!  I CAN'T WAIT....did you hear that?

So....Happy 35/35 to me!!  Come on Owen....we are waiting on you.....  :)

Why I blog

People often ask me why I blog?  Most of the time, I use the response that I want my out of town friends and relatives to be able to keep up with my life.  And to be completely honest, most of the time, I have no clue if anyone ever reads this compliation of randomness.

But then I am immediately reminded why it is all worth while.  Since I started this blog, I have gotten emails from a few people whom I don't even know, that are going through difficult times in child rearing.  They are inspired by my story and contact me to share their story with me.

The entire process of trying to make a baby is draining in itself and for someone who has difficulty, it is devasting and emotionally consuming.  It is the stories of success that can help to get you through the day, the week, the next "cycle".  And if my silly little blog can help even one person realize that life can change in an instant, that God can will provide in his own time, or that they are not alone in this emotional rollercoaster then every entry is completely worth it to me.

I learned alot on my journey and like most who have experienced difficulty or a loss, I feel that it is my duty to be there for someone that may be in the same boat. 

So please, if there is anyone out there reading my blog that just needs someone to talk to, some one to vent to, some one to relate with, email me.

Much Love.

Yes Please....

Ya know how at the beginning of every year, you get that "I'm gonna be more organized this year" bug?  Well, I am no exception.  In fact, I don't need the New Year to have that excuse.  I love organizing tools!  There's just something about the thought of something helping you to get through your day more easily that just gives me a huge grin. 
I love it!

So, let me introduce to you....this little gem!  It's the 2012 Erin Condren Life Planner. 
Oh. My. Gosh. 
I must have this!!! 

But at FIFTY bucks a pop....I am just not really sure that I can justify it!  What do you think?  Should I splurge?

Welcome Twenty Twelve.

OK, so I know that I am a couple of days late, but I have been catching up on some blogs today and have found that everyone is blogging about a new year, a new start, what they want to do differently this year, how their lives will change because it's a new year....blah blah blah....

I am not typically one to make the obligatory New Year's resolution(s).....after all, if you quit doing it in February, you failed...and who wants to fail?  I know that this sounds very pessemistic, but it's true, right???

But....this year is different.  With so much about to change in my life (ahem....Baby Owen), maybe I should rethink my strategy of living and stick with what works and toss out what doesn't???  Hmmm....something to think about.  So, while I think about what I want to "work on" in 2012, I will leave you with this little ditty that I think fits perfectly for everyday use.....

Sneak Peek

Darren and I had some maternity pictures done this past weekend (at 31 weeks) and had a blast!  I haven't gotten to see all of the finished product, but here are a few shots that have tided me over.  I love them!
