so ready!

I am so excited for the next few weeks! I took April 2nd (Fri) and 5th (Mon) off of work for my birthday weekend :) I also found out that Kylie will be here for a week! Then the next week is our anniversary, followed by test time! April is always so good to me :) I hope it pulls through in baby news. Alright...I'm off...love you all!

Oh happy day

I am so thankful for yet another amazing Saturday! Today we went to play some putt-putt. What's better than putt-putt? FREE putt-putt :) I had a coupon from work for 2 free rounds, so we went and used it. We had fun! I am sad to tell you that Drake beat me :( He started the first hole with a hole-in-one. Here he is making sure that it is documented haha

My turn...

Then we came home and layed out for a bit in the back yard. We had the radio going and a nice breeze to just sit and relax. I am loving our hammock! Drake made an area in the backyard with stone and rocks that the hammock is in, so it's like a little retreat :)

Now we are going to grab some lunch and figure out what to do the rest of the day. I just wanted to write real quick since it has been a few days. I hope everyone is having a good weekend! xoxo

what to do?

ok, so a while back I posted a picture of the bathingsuit I ordered for this year...it got sent right back. It did not fit right at all. But, I was able to try on some two pieces and have come to this conclusion: I will not be wearing one this summer! The muffin top is out of control these days. I am so mad at myself, it's just so dang hard when you go from playing college sports (working out 3 hours a day and games on the weekends) to whatever you can fit in when you get home from work.

I think the best thing a girl can wear is confidence, and that is just not going to happen in a two piece, so on with the shopping. I have been trying to find a cute, not old lady one piece. And nothing with the sides cut out...that would just bring attention to the area I am trying to avoid. I love love love the retro look, and found a few that remind me of pin-up girl styles, so tell me what you think please!

In the mean time I will just continue to workout like always...I just have to get the eating thing down. :( Ugh You would think I would have an awesome 6-pack with all the calories I am burning from so much sex! haha sorry mom and dad ♥

Truckin along...

Sooo, since last time I wrote we went to The Lynch's house for dinner Saturday night and had breakfast for dinner. yum! Drake and I were on our way home around 9:00 because we were already tired! Wow

Sunday I took care of all my laundry! Yes ALL. it has been a while since every piece of clothing I own was clean and hung up. It feels so good :)
Today was back to work...for lunch I grabbed a smoothie from bagelheads and went and just sat by myself in my car and looked out at the water and thought about life. It was nice to just sit and think about things and chill out for a few minutes. I love that my office is right by the water...
Finally, Today is day 13 of this cycle, and it is pretty much dragging by like every month. But we are continuing to "try" ;) I am so hopeful that it will happen soon! Well, I am off to run and start dinner. xoxo

I heart cosmo wade

We took Cosmo to the dog park AGAIN yesterday after work. She just has so much fun, so it's hard not to take her as much as we do. :) This is how our trips go:

Five Question Friday

Today I ran across another blog that I am going to love reading...and while reading, she had a link to this blog...yeah it's a vicious cycle. It is Five Question Friday so i figured I would participate :)

1. Have you ever had a celeb sighting?
While playing soccer at UCF I was invited by one of the my teammates to her friend's place who was friends with Chris Kirkpatrick from 'N Sync. After hanging out for a bit we ended up going over to Chris kirkpatrick's house! I knew absolutely no one except my teammate and was totally star struck but had to play it off. Totally random, but awesome :)

2. What temperature do you keep your house?
Well, I like to keep it somewhere around 70 and Drake likes it in the 60s. He will not turn on the heat on in winter until I can't take it anymore. Now...if Kathryn is town it happens to be at like 80 degrees everytime I walk by the thermostat haha

3. Do you notice dust at other peoples homes?
Ha! Heck no...I can't even keep my own dustmites in check

4. What's the worst job you ever had?
I got a job for the couple weeks I was home for Christmas break one year in college at a local sporting goods store. Score! (I thought) I figured I would be helping customers and answering the phones. Nope...I was just in time to do their end of the year inventory. I had to count every single item in the back warehouse area! Up on the ladder holding boxes and counting all day everyday! Thank God it was only a couple weeks of work.

5. What is your most sentimental possession?
My pictures. I love looking back at old pictures and really enjoy taking them, although my friends sometimes get annoyed. I get it from my dad. You just can't replace those memories ♥

-Drake and I purchased a webcam, so we have been able to skype with his family and The Gully family :)

-Back to the drawing board on names one day for our baby haha We are definetely set on Aniston Harper for a girl...but now we have another potential for a boy, sorry! :) What do you think about Easton? Drake likes it since it is a baseball brand. ha So we have Brody, Kameron, Tristan, and Easton in the pot??

-Why do I worry about things that I have no control over?! There are too many things going on right now that are uncertain and it's making me crazy!

-We rented Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs to watch tonight :)

-We have been running lately and it is nice! I enjoy my videos when it is too hot or cold to enjoy a run, but running in spring weather is so nice

-The Monday work day is over hooray!

Spring Forward!

Ah Spring is in the air...too bad I don't get a spring break! :( Today was a nice day, we hung out around the house, went for a run, and layed on the hammock while talking and eating orange sherbert :) I am loving that it is almost 7:00 and still not dark out! I hope everyone had a good weekend...time for the work week. Booo!

love my weekends!

Well, first off my mom's surgery went well :) We went over there last night and played a game with them and just hung out. We will hopefully know something by wednesday. Today is another beautiful Saturday! I think that makes 3 in a row. We went out earlier and did some walking around and took a few pictures...

After walking around, we took Cosmo up to the dog park. She is so funny. She still has her issues with some of the bigger dogs, but she is getting better. :) She was running around and digging...

Finally, we went downtown and had some cajun food for lunch yum! I love some good crawfish and sweet tea :)

We had a really good day out and about, now we are hanging at the house and then we are going to our friend's house to grill out tonight. Ahhh I just love my weekends! xoxo

Say a prayer...

for my mom. She is having her 9th surgery in the morning. They recently found a growth on her lymph node and want to take it out and make sure it isn't cancerous. I know she will be fine, but I just want her to know I love her ♥

Not looking good

Well, I took a test this morning and it was negative. I couldn't help myself and took it early. No matter how hard or long I stared at the stupid stick, it still had just one line.Yes, there is the hope that it is early and maybe I didn't have enough of the hcg hormone yet...but I am also feeling cramps this morning. I can't believe next month will be a year that we have been trying! If no luck by May, I have to go back to the doctor and have tests done. I don't want to get to that point. This sucks.

life is good today

What a beautiful weekend it has been! This morning we got up and headed to the beach. We layed out for a while and packed ourselves a picnic lunch and then changed into our running clothes and tennis shoes and went for a run by the beach. We have had a pretty chill weekend, but it has been so nice to relax!

Back to the 'ol grind tomorrow :( But I am excited since this is my week to test. I hope you all had a good weekend. xoxo

deep breath

Thank God for the much needed weekend! Last night was so relaxing. We went to my parents for a bit and played a board game. I loovvee playing board games! Then we picked up a movie and a pizza and came home and enjoyed some down time. This morning we slept in for a bit and just layed in bed talking♥ Now we are about to go for a walk down to the park with Cosmo.

I did order a bathingsuit for my birthday :) Since my birthday is in April that is always one of my presents from my parents, a new suit for the year. This is the one I got...

I would appreciate it if Victoria's Secret had normal looking people as models. This girl is just setting me up for a let down when I try on the bathingsuit after seeing it on her body! haha Well, I am off to enjoy a sunny Saturday...Happy Weekend! Oh...5 more days!

love this song

Monday, March 1, 2010


I apologize in advance for my excitement over the smallest things, but I can't help myself. So...this morning I had a slight nose bleed, well nothing crazy and gushing or anything, but it was bleeding and I was having to blow and wipe the blood away. (Sorry I know you want to hear all about my body through this blog) So of course I go straight the internet "Are nose bleeds a sign of pregnancy?" And here is what it said...

"Pregnant women seem to get more than their fair share of nosebleeds. Nosebleeds causes in pregnancy are probably the result of increased blood flow. Pregnant women actually have 30% to 50% more blood circulating in their bodies than they would normally. This blood is needed in order to maintain a healthy placenta and baby."

So, that made me excited since I can't think of the last time my nose was bleeding :) I will hold on to any positive I can during the months of waiting. It could be nothing, I have definetely been guilty of taking one thing my body does and running with it. But just thought I would share ♥
