Making my Monday (award)

I couldn't decide on who to nominate on Monday so, I waited until today to post... :)

I just wanted to send a shout out to My Husband's Watching TV and thank you for awarding me with this awesome award!!!  What a way to start off the Monday!!!  You've always been such a great blog reader of mine and a fantabulous commentor!  Thank you so much!

The Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated me for this award. Done.
2. Copy the award & place it on my blog. Done.
3. Link to the person who nominated me for this award. Done.
4. Share 7 interesting things about myself.
5. Nominate 7 bloggers.

My seven interesting facts are:

1. I just learned to ski last weekend.  My first time and I'm 27 years old!  I lOvEd it!

2. I had my wisdom teeth pulled at age 16.

3. I love my job.

4. My first pet (aside from my rabbit) was a "grow a frog" that came in the mail.

5. If I leave my eye brows alone and let them grow to their full potential, I will look like I have two ENORMOUS black caterpillers on my face.  Nice, right?

6.  I'm superstitious about a lot things.  Like when my dr. didn't do my IUI, I thought that was automatically granting me bad luck.  Like how at first when I had a few baby items in my house I thought they were not helping.  Now I know that they are actually a part of my treasure chest and prayer box.  Some people are weird about special shirts on game days and I'm worried about what dr is going to shot my husband's sperm inside of me... That's interesting, right?

7. Lastly, my favorite drink from StarBucks is a Tall Non-Fat Chai.

My seven nominated bloggers:

1. Crafty Mandy at This Girl's Life.

2. Fabulous T at Two Peas In A Pod Designs.

3. Too cute Ky at Two Pretzels.

4. Inspiring Kristal at Good Food, Good Friends, Good Life.

5. Amazing Erynn at Rollin' with the Rooney's.

6. Darling Leah at Marital-Bless.

7. Sweet Erin at Blue-Eyed Bride.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
