where there's a WILL, there's a way

In only 11 days my world WILL change. Yep...I WILL be pregnant! Can you believe it?! After 15 months of trying, I WILL forget all the pain and let downs I have felt and WILL be overcome with joy and happiness. This WILL be the month. A positive on that stupid pee stick. Finally getting to fill this empty room. I just want to make sure you all are prepared for it. It WILL be a good day. Yep, only 11 days. Get ready :)

Today we went to Academy and bought 2 kayaks. Drake has been talking about kayaking for as long as I can remember, so I finally made him go and actually get them instead of look at them again. We went over to Shoreline Park in Gulf Breeze to start out...

Drake was so excited about the built-in cooler area it has :)

We went a pretty long way for our first time arms are so tired! We went across to the next area with sand and took a break and got out to swim and cool off and then headed back again. We just got home from being out there all afternoon. I love that I got a workout and some sun all in one :) Now I am going to shower and relax. We had a great only one more week of work and then we will be on vacation for the 4th! ♥

Wooo Hooo!!!

It's the weekend! Today I slept in, and it was everything I hoped it would be :) Then I went and got my nails done and headed over to my parents house to watch the soccer game. So bummed we lost, but it was a good game. After that Drake got home from work and we headed over to downtown Milton and I took some pictures of my brother and beautiful niece. ♥

She is growing up too fast!

This reminds me of Forrest Gump :)

After that we stopped for some ice cream and headed back home. Overall, a very successful Saturday! I hope you all are having a great weekend too xoxo

It's official

The oil has started to wash up on our sugar white beach :( It is so sad just how long this is going to impact us, and so sad for the animals! This is what the beach looks like today...

Since all of the animals are trying to escape the oil, they are getting closer and closer to shore. This is a baby dolphin that had to be rescued :(

And this is what is headed our way! This is a picture that was taken in Louisiana I believe. I am just in shock.

Man I could go for a day off for my mental health. I am just so dang tired and feel like I have no energy today. I did have a busy day at work and then after I did a shoot for my co-worker Heather. We had so much fun! We did a shoot of her so that she can surprise her husband with a book of pictures when he deploys in August. Isn't she gorgeous?!

Once I got home it was time to grab dinner, then I hopped on here, and I am already ready to get my shower and just lay in bed. We are such an old couple, in bed at 9:30 haha Anyways...I need to find energy from somewhere because I will be ovulating in the next week, and this is our last chance before going to the specialist. I hope we can get that positive this month! That would mean I would have a baby in March of 2011. I like the sound of that :) Well...I am outta here. Have a great night xoxo

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! I am believing that by next Father's Day I will be giving Drake a gift from our baby ♥ Today was a beautiful day...I started out my day babysitting Vivian while Jenn packed more boxes to try and finish moving into their new house. We had fun playing all morning! :)

After leaving there, Drake and I went to my mom and dad's house to do Father's Day/Dad's B-day. His birthday is Tuesday, but we went ahead and did the celebrating today since everyone was off. We hung out, played kickball, board games, and ate lunch. Here is Kylie up in a tree before our kickball match...

Kylie and my brother...

oh and don't forget this guy :) Yes he is wearing a birthday boy ribbon that Kylie made him wear haha I hope he knows how much I love him and how thankful I am for all he has done for me and my brother through the years. He sacrificed everything for us growing up so that we had the best chance at being successful. He is an awesome dad (and Pop!) ♥

This weekend has flown by! I am not even close to ready to go back to work in the morning :( Oh well, I will just try and enjoy the rest of the evening with my handsome honey! xoxo

Saturday ♥

Today was a pretty good day...the mornings go by slow because I am just watching the clock until Drake gets off! :) I went on a run...and then I was close to going to buy an elliptical because even in the morning the humidity is so bad here! ugh Anyways, then the mailman brought me my new camera strap. It is from etsy and love it.

It was just in time for my next shoot :) I took pictures this evening for Chad and Amy. Amy is one of my old co-workers, so it was nice to catch up.

After pictures, Drake and I went to Mellow Mushroom for dinner. yum! Now we are just hanging out...tomorrow is our day off together ♥

Tag! I'm it :)

I was tagged on my blog friend Josey's post, so I couldn't let her down! :) I have to list 7 facts/habits/quirks about myself. Here goes nothing.

1. You already know this if you have been around me, but I have a phobia of throw-up. Not like, "ewww throw-up is gross" I mean obviously it's gross to everyone and it sucks to be sick, but I'm talking full blown panic attack if I see it or feel like I will be sick. One day when I do get pregnant after I jump up and down from excitement, inside I will freak out wondering if I will have morning sickness. I will not see a movie until I know if there is a throw-up scene in it, and if so where it is so that I can turn my head in time. I check expiration dates like a crazy lady to avoid food poisoning. It's bad.

2. I watch Saved By The Bell every morning while I eat my cereal. I have done this since I was in high school. Thanks TBS for keeping them on your schedule! haha It is the cheesiest show ever, but I love it.

3. I have 3 tattoos and plan on getting more. I never would have thought I would get any. It's Drake's fault! :) But they all have special meaning to me so I know i will not regret them.

4. I am a total girly girl and tom boy at the same time. I like having my nails done, and I like to get them dirty!

5. I am a huge planner. I write everything down in my personal planner. Even if we did something that wasn't on there, I will go in and write it later and check it off. I have a planner for work, and a planner with our bills, when they are due and how much the bill is and I check them off when I pay them. I sit down and pay the bills every Friday. Wow I'm a loser :)

6. Drake and I met in college. He was on the baseball team and I was on the soccer team. We worked out in the same weight room on the same days and times (the 2 teams) and he always talks about how much he would watch me, before I even knew who he was. I love that I caught his eye with my soccer clothes on with sweat dripping off my stinky body ♥

7. I had braces on my legs when I was little. Like Forrest Gump style. The doctors said I would never be able to run, and would not walk normally...well I ended up walking just fine, and running even better :) I was the anchor leg on our 4x1 team in high school.

Wow, those were really random...hopefully at least one entertained you. :)

Batting Cages and Board Games

Today after work we went to the batting cages with Kylie. It was a random trip, but it was fun :) Wow, I'm not even sure what to say about this picture! haha

Action Shots :) Hitting in the softball cages...

She's so cute

Then Drake had to show everyone up in the fastest cage :)

This is Kylie's reaction to the speed of the pitch

Then we played on the playground for a bit before stopping by my parents.

Once we got there we played Loaded Questions. I love playing that game! Now we are home and about to get ready for bed. I have a big day tomorrow! :) xoxo

love my weekends!

Today was a fun day. This morning Drake and I went for a run and then hung out for a bit before I got ready for Rachel's shower. She got a ton of cute things for Jonah. Her due date is July 18th...I can't wait to meet another baby :)

I was able to catch up with some friends that I worked with a couple years ago. This is Tara and Crissy, two of the sweetest people you will meet.

Once I got home we headed out to dinner at Olive Garden. Drake had a gift card so that was nice. We had an awesome dinner together. Finally we got home and like two old people, just pulled out chairs and sat on the porch enjoying the sun going down. :)

Cosmo loves being outside if you can't tell by the blur of her tail ♥

Now we are in our PJs and hanging out until Kylie gets in town a little later. Happy Saturday!!

I am so happy that tomorrow is Friday! I am really looking forward to the weekend. Saturday I have that shower to go to AND Drake is off! (He usually gets a random weekday and Sunday off) So...we have a date night planned AND Kylie will be getting in town for the whole summer! I am so excited to have her here! She will be 7 next month. wow. Well, I am off to make dinner and hang out with Drake and Cosmo...and my brother might be coming over to watch a movie :) Have a good evening xoxo

dang it!

As soon as I got back from my run, I went to shower and BAM! She's here :( I wasn't expecting anything this month because we took a month off of scheduled baby making. But a girl can still hope right?! Just wanted to let you guys know. What a bummer.
