its time to tell

we are adding two new things, as i mentioned before. 

number one: a fish. 

i love that the joke was "a fish" and we really are getting one! 
this is so exciting because the only pets Ive ever had was a fish and a bunny. 
my poor bunny didnt last long in our house.

number two: recipes. 
what? i know. i was reading my earlier post to chris, asking him how i should ask people for recipes. 
then it all started coming together, and by the end, it sounded like we were expecting twins. haha

so sorry. i am not pregnant. 

i just need good, cheap ingredient recipes. 

so if you have any good summer grilling or summer salad recipes? 
any cool summer drink recipes? 
i dont need any soup or warm, feel good recipes because winter doesn't exist here.

you can email them to me at

thank thank thank you! 


  1. marinade chicken in itallian dressing and serve with rice and veggies . . .
    Add one can of any campbell's soup (cream of mushroom, cream of broccoli and cheese, etc) and half a cup of milk to browned chiken in a skillet . . . ummmmmm, those are easy and simple . . . didn't you get a cook book from young women's????

    I knew you weren't pregnant, but you did prick my curiosity . . .
    Kai is looking into moving to the big island . . .

  2. I can't believe I was right! so is it still living?

24 weeks (December 2017)

It's been awhile.
Like over a year since I last posted something here. I figured it was about time to update everyone. I announced that we were expecting a couple months ago and then left it at that. And several dear friends are asking for updates. And a lot is happening. 
So the quick (maybe not so quick) update is.. all is well! 

1. We're pregnant! (In case you didn't know). I am currently 24 weeks along with our miracle baby girl (Lucy)! We have had about 20ish ultrasounds and too many hours sitting in a waiting room to count. Being high risk is no joke. But I'm not complaining because we get to see our wiggly little girl almost every week!  When we first found out we were expecting (which is a whole post on it's own) we were given the option of genetic testing. After praying and fasting about this we decided to opt out. The test was a CVS (Chorionic villus sampling) where a needle would be inserted into to placenta to test the fluid and baby's DNA and that …

I'm going to start by saying I'm on heavy doses of Lortab and Tylenol. I'm seriously having a hard time making complete sentences but I want this to be out so you know what happened. From the beginning of this journey, Chris and I have felt like this has been such a "team" trial. We've had so much support and so many prayers offered on our behalf and that it's such a devastation to everyone that this happened. You are my team and I want you to be in on everything.

I honestly can't believe I'm sitting down at the computer and starting to write this out, again. Trying to explain what just happened, again. Trying to find the words to describe accurately how I feel. So here's my best.

I had felt her move very gently only three times on Wednesday so when I woke up on Thursday I went straight for the sugary cereal in hopes that would wake Charlotte up and get her moving. I ate and waited. I grabbed a cold water, drank half and …

Two, Four + Six years

Today is kinda a big day. Everything is hitting today. Our sweet Conor would have been two years old a week ago, Owen turned four and in a couple weeks Chris and I have been married for six years. That's a lot of anniversaries. Some great to remember and celebrate and some not. Everybody has those.

Our little buddy Conor would be TWO! See that muffin top down there? That's Conor not Cafe Rio, well maybe a little of both. Conor leaves some strange memories. Although we lost him, his soul, his body, I don't miss him. It that terrible or what?

After his early surprise delivery I was shocked, there's no doubt about that, but I almost immediately felt like he was a big, grown, man taking care of me. Owen didn't realize what was happening, well none of us did. He didn't ask about him everyday, he was just too young to understand. It just didn't seem like the end of the world. Everyone can handle a certain amount of pain and heartbreak right? Compared to Charlotte…
