so excited!!

Hello everyone!
In some strange way, I feel like I am on cloud nine again. That feeling of extreme happiness. The feeling like you don't have a care in the world. The feeling of sweet, sweet bliss. 
My mommy and daddy are coming to save me! (haha)
They are coming to visit Chris and I and I can't hardly stand it. 
We have been so lucky this year to have lots of family and friends visit.
The Davis' came in March.
We had a blast. For the longest time I felt alone and abandoned out here. When they came it felt amazing. I love this family with all my heart. I can't wait to see them again. 

Then in July, Chris' brother Ryan came out! That was so much fun. It was almost a good as having my own brother come out... haha 
We had so much fun with Ryan. We love him too. 

Shortly after Ry left, three of my best friends from High School came out to stay with us. 
I loved having them stay and party with us. We stayed up late talking, laughed about good old high school drama and had a blast touring thee island. That was the hardest I had laughed in a long time. Thanks girls. :) 

Every time we have had visitors, I get so excited they are here and then mid-week I realize they are going home. But then some one else comes to stay, so it's makes it okay. This time it's mom and dad. This time it's two people that know me best. This time it's the people who have always been there for me. Can you imagine how ecstatic I feel? 

Oh man oh man.. three days! :) 
I can't wait. 
I am the happiest girl in the world!! 


  1. We are very excited too!!! First time to Hawaii and you guys are there to greet us. I can't decide if I should pack one suitcase with food and house hold items or if we should just bite the bullet and shop when we get there. Hummmm?
    I made some homemade peach jam yesterday so I'll try to bring some.
    Oh, and you had one more set of visitors...the Skillmans! Even though they could only spend the day with you, it was kinda fun and sad all at the same time.
    See you soon!

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…
