Sprout | Registry Update

Alright, after asking a lot of questions of those that have babies, are having babies or that will be buying baby things... I think we finally came the conclusion of where we're going to register and why.

This was a hard thing for me because of the city I live near and all of the resources.

We have a Buy Buy Baby not very far from us (35+ minutes), a Babies R Us close by (20 minutes or less), a Target (20 minutes), Pottery Barn Kids (15 minutes), and various baby boutiques around town that are just as cute too...

Anyway, as a follow up to this post, we made a choice!

We will be registering at Babies R Us to include a traditional baby store and so that if we have returns, it will be close by.  We will also be registering on Amazon Baby Registry for things that we cannot locate at Babies R Us or for things that are priced better than BRU.  We will also include things around the internet that we won't find at either location that we just love. 

You all know about my love for Etsy and if I cannot include some things from their site on my registry, I will be sad.  This allows me to include things from there, from Ikea, from anywhere that isn't Babies R Us.  It's very neat and so fun to create!

So the decision is made.  We're registering at Babies R Us this weekend in person and more online just to get everything.  From there, we'll be adding things from Amazon Baby to the registry so that we can make sure to include everything we are thinking that we are going to want and need.

Feels good to have that decision out of the way!  :)

YEA! sounds like a great choice. Buy Buy Baby is too far and I love the idea of the Amazon registry how smart is that

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 …
