Thanksgiving Fun

We had a great Thanksgiving w/ the Romneys. The weather was sunny and warm and  perfect for a great thanksgiving. We played football, ate great food and spent quality time with everyone. It was very relaxing and  went by way to fast.

Romney Football

I love these pics of Ben.
He looks so hot!


The family is too big to all sit at one table
This table was assigned to those without kiddies.

This picture was taken 2 years ago
when Ben took me home with him for Thanksgiving.
2 weeks later he proposed and we used this as one
of our engagment pics. Its one of my favorites.

Disaster Averted!

So I had a very ditsy moment tonight that I just feel like sharing.
After work I went to the mall to see if I could find me a cute new sweater for thanksgiving w/ the Romneys. I was looking around I realized I had a million sweaters at home and it was better that I did not spend money right before Christmas. So like a good girl I walked out of the stores empty handed. I decided to get some pizza for me and Ben so that I didnt have to cook when I got home. I got in my car and was excited to get home to eat, but right as I was about to pull out of the parking lot I remembered that I hadnt called the parents of our boy scouts to remind them we were not having it tonight. The parents directory was in the back of my trunk. I parked my car and got my keys to unlock the trunk to get the phone list. Well for some reason I set my keys down in the trunk and forgot to grab them after I got the list. I instantly was like "crap, how am I going to get home with my keys locked in the trunk." But then I remembered that you can pop the trunk from the inside of the car. So I pushed the button....but it didnt open. Now Ben is phoneless right now so there is no way to get ahold of him. My first form of action was to call my friend Stephanie because she lived close to the mall and could take me home so that I could get Ben. So I called her and told her of my predicament but she could not help me because she was in Louisiana for thanksgiving. My next instincked was to call my BFF Janelle even though she left work early today because she was not feeling good. She was more then happy to come and get me and made fun of me just a little bit. Well not long after she had agreed to come get me I realized something of importance....I looked down at the botton that I had been pushing to open my trunk and realised that the pic on it did not show the trunk showed the hood opening. I ran outside and sure enough the hood of the car was open. I ran back into the car and found the proper button to push and heard the joyful sound of the trunk opening. I laughed to myself, grabbed my keys and called Janelle to cancel the rescue. Luckily she had not left yet. It made us both giggle. Glad I have friends to rely on, since I cant rely on my phoneless husband. Hmmm...I think I know what I am going to get him for Christmas

Miss Martha Stewart Part 2

I finally got my upstairs organized to my liking. I had no energy or time to paint though. But I can live with white walls upstairs. I got a new comforter for our bedroom and a few wall decorations. I hate plain walls. I am now satisfied and feel right at home!

New comforter and wall decorations
Close up of the wall decorations.
To the left is a creative way to hang jewelry.
To the right are handy dandy wall stickers. New favorite thing.

Our office.
This is Bens side

This is my side. The clock is probably my favorite.

One day our office will  turn into the baby room
(that is if we have a baby in this townhouse)
Until then I love it as an office.

Im kind of sad that Im done decorating now. There are no more rooms.
I need a bigger house!!!! LOL

Happy Birthday Rice

Rice turned one today according to the records he came with when we bought him.
So Ben and I decided to throw him a doggy B-Day party.
Is throwing your dog a B-day party totally pathedic....absolutly!
Was it super fun and totally worth the 5 bucks I spent at the dollor store....Heck Yeah!!!

Party Time

                                                  Rice got to eat his Rice Crispy treat
                                               His presents were some bones and hangers.
                                             He LOVES Hangers. He can chew them all day!
                                                   I think the kiddy hangers will be a hit!

I love my puppy!(I think I will always call him puppy!)

Where are my Rainbabies?

The 2 worst words when TTC


Our first IUI failed us! Everything seemed perfect. Numbers were good, I had 2 eggs ready to make a baby, yet I still, in my gut knew I was not going to get pregnant! So now we do it all over again. The meds, the shots and the waiting. By far waiting is the hardest thing and what Im dreading the most!

So onto the rainbabies.
There is a childrens book called The Rainbabies that I loved when I was little. Its about a couple who do not have children and they desperatly want them. One night the woman goes out into the rain and asks for a miracle to come. She then glances over into the field and sees some light. She runs over and finds 12 little babys the size of her thumb. Her and her husband are so happy that they have been given a miracle! Through the story things happen that put the babies in danger, but the loving parents always save them and try to keep them out of harms way. One night a man comes to the door and offers them a stone that is worth a lot of money in exchange for the babies, but the couple refuses his offer. They love the babies more then any riches. The man then turns into a beautiful woman who tells the couple that the rainbabies can not live without her and that she needs to take them back. The couple begs her not to take the rainbabies. She then tells them she is pleased with the way they took care of her rainbabies and they are worthy of being parents. She pulls out a basket and they open it up to find a baby girl. The couple finally got the child they had dreamed about.

Sometimes I wish I could just come home and find a baby on my doorstep! Or find 12 little babies the size of my thumb out in my yard. When will it be my turn to be a mom!  I know I am young, but it still doesnt take away from the hurt infertiltiy brings!
I just hope one day my own miracle comes! I wouldnt trade being a mom for any riches of the world!
