the update

Aloha everyone!! 
It feels like I've been missing. I have been so busy lately. Which is a good thing for me. 
So what have I been doing lately? 
Selling everything I own, babysitting and making truly delicious meals for my honey.

Selling everything has been quite an adventure.
I feel like I'm completely drained sometimes. It's amazing how many things we have.
 I can't believe the amount of items one girl can accumulate in one year.
And I am very, very good at throwing things away, so that's saying something.
We have sold many things but a few random odds and ends left.

Babysitting has been going well. Honestly.
I love the kids I get to watch; three month old Chloe and three year old Jack. It's a lot of work and I only have them for a few hours. Chloe is at the learning how to smile age so it's funny to watch the "stink" faces she makes when she's happy. Jack is very into super heroes so it's almost like spending time nephew Bubba.
Except Malachi can say Wolverine.. Jack says "Volvering".

Making delicious meals has never interested me until lately. My mom tried and tried but I was not excited to learn when I lived at home. I'm not sure where this new interest came from but Chris loves it. Probably just me feeling guilty that Chris has been making his own dinners since we were married.  It's only been a year.
Anyway I have been making everything from coconut chicken to cheddar broccoli soup. I know, soup? Yes.. it's been chilly. P.S. Hawaii turns you into the biggest pansy when it comes to weather.

I found a couple pictures that make me happy so I wanted to share.
Halloween costume from UP! I adore it!

Thanksgiving dinner.
We had the Townsend's, the Wares, the Riley's, the Bishoff's, and the Rappleye's over for dinner. We had so much fun. It was stress and drama free, just the kind of dinner parties I love.

So, that's the update. I hope you have wonderful holidays!

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…
