Holy Moly! 2 months from today my baby brother is getting MARRIED! Crazy time. It's hard to believe it's so close....yet to think of being on vacation, it seems SO FAR away. It's nice to have something to think about that isn't baby related though. I still feel everyone is getting pregnant but me, I recently found out a couple of girls from high school who just had babies and I didn't even know they were pregnant! So seriously...EVERYONE! Anywho....back to vacation talk. :) We leave November 18 for Naples, Florida. I cannot wait. We'll be down there for 10 glorious days. The wedding is on the 22, so from the 23 - 27 we can do whatever we want to. I suppose I should start putting together an "itinerary" for hubby and myself....so we can make sure to cram in as much fun and relaxation as possible. I think he's going to take his golf clubs....he wasn't going to, but now he is I think...which works just fine for me...I'll go to the beach and read. :) Man o Man I cannot wait. ;) Here are some pictures of the beach...from the last time we went....almost 3 years ago!! Tell me you don't just absolutely love it. I'll talk to you soon!!
Okay so I have now added the photos, and I WISH I WAS THERE NOW!!!

And FYI...everyone and their, for lack of a better word, mother is either getting pregnant or having babies. Like seriously...EVERYONE!

Man o' Man

Well...another month....no baby. It's hard to not get discouraged. I'm trying very very hard to stay positive, and upbeat, because the reality of the situation is we haven't been trying THAT long, but it wears on you. Especially since people keep asking me about it. The funny part about that is hubby wanted to tell the entire world we were trying to get pregnant. He didn't want anyone to think our little bundle of joy was a "surprise". Yet, he says when we find out we are pregnant he doesn't want to tell anyone for the entire first trimester. I told him there was no way that was going to happen. I mean let's just look at the facts here. Odds are, I'm going to be sick. Clearly people at work are going to find out. Secondly, I had a cousin who miscarried last summer...and I'll be darned if he has to call my mother and tell her I'm having surgery the following day because I had a miscarriage. I don't want her to find out I'm pregnant that way. How horrible. So I'm attempting to stay positive, and enjoying the "trying" process. :) Trying it is...

Funny Story

Okay, so hilarious story. I took a pregnancy test yesterday. Negative. Hubby was also not home, so I kind of "hid" it in the bathroom garbage can. By hid, I mean like not well. haha.

So, after he gets home and we get dinner started, I am sitting on the sofa reading my book. I had left some directions on the counter for him to take a look at (we're going to a housewarming party this weekend way out far away), and he sits down next to me on the sofa and says have you even read these directions. I was like yeah, of course I have, shouldn't be too difficult. And then he starts reading from the directions, "99% effective from date of missed period". He had pulled the directions out of the pregnancy test box in the closet to read them to me. THEN tells me that I must hold said pregnancy test in my urine stream for no longer than 5 seconds, and if I pee in a cup then it's 20 seconds. I looked up in surprise and said "TWENTY?!?!?!" Of course I had peed in a cup, and on the last pregnancy test it was the same 5 seconds so that's all I did. I was like OH MY GOSH I COULD'VE HAD A MISREAD I SHOULD TAKE ANOTHER ONE. He was like um...no...I really think you should wait until you have a missed thing.

So there's my funny story of the day.

HOLA PEEPS! Hard to believe it's Wednesday, and I'm just now getting to blogging about the weekend! Oh how I LOVE LOVE LOVE long weekends. :) We left for the lake on Thursday night after work. We got down there and it was just nice to just sit and be just us. Then Friday we got up and drove to Columbia, KY to visit hubbys friend who is living on a farm there. We got to see all sorts of animals. Kittens, horses, donkey, pony, goats, fainting goats...and like seriously the biggest Bull Mastiff I have ever seen in my whole life! It was a lot of fun. Saturday hubby stayed at the house to watch the UK game, I went out on the boat with my brothers-in-law and some friends who were down for the weekend. It was a lot of fun. Nice weather, went for a boat ride. Just a great day. THEN when we got back up to the house we had a Mexican Fiesta! It was FANTABULOUS! Food was great, company was great, and afterwards we played board games. Talk about a perfect night. We had so much fun!! Sunday was gloomy. We stayed in the house pretty much all day. Played some games, and then got hooked on some show on I think it was TLC about female police officers...I swear, you get addicted pretty quick! Then we left Monday morning. It was rainy and gloomy again, so we figured might as well head home. So that was our weekend. I'm already looking forward to the next one, and one week from today my sister-in-law and her family are coming to visit! I can't wait to see them. :) I'm just so super excited. YAY! That's all for now. Talk to you later. :)


One more thing.....Okay, so since going off the pill I have noticed my complexion is getting worse and worse and worse! Seriously, it's driving me completely insane! I can't hardly stand it. I feel like I'm back in middle school. I hope the people at work don't make fun of me like the kids did!
