10/30 Embarassing

10/30- Describe your most embarrassing moment

I think I am just naturally clumsy/silly/embarrassing. There are so many embarrassing moments that I don't think I could narrow it down to one. So I will list my top three.

1- My Freshman year of high school (I think I could just stop here).. I tried out for the softball team. We were doing running/sliding drills. I started at home and sprinted to first.. I started WAY too late into the slide and hit the base with my head, my feet caught up to me and went over my head. Everyone was laughing to hard. All I could do was laugh to not look like a complete fool. I think I even said "I meant to do that". Oh man, what great times.

It may or may not have looked something like this.. in front of both the JV and varsity teams.. and the baseball team. 

2- I think most of my embarrassing moments come from high school (who's don't?) I was a Junior driving in the parking lot by the baseball field where all of the "hot" senior baseball boys were talking. I think I was trying to impress someone or show off and hit the gas. As I sped off I hit the curb so hard it popped the tire.  In the rear view, they were all laughing and pointing at me. Humiliating. My life (as I knew it) was over.  My poor little Ford Escort barely made it up the hill out of the parking lot. I pulled over and laughed (because I was trying not to cry). One of them came up and helped me. He laughed and told me that I should be embarrassed but he helped me fix the tire. (There will always be a special place in my heart you friend.)

3- Chris and I were walking around BYU- checking out the Erying Science Center. I went upstairs to look at something and on my way down.. let's just say I came down a lot faster than I planned. My boot caught on the iron stair rail and I flew- Like down six or seven granite steps. Everyone there just stared.. none asked if I needed help or if I was okay. Owen started screaming as if he just fell down the hard staircase. Chris picked me up and tried not to laugh. I picked Owen up and we all laughed. Then I limped out of there as fast as I could..


Stay tuned for the next post 11/30- Describe 10 pet peeves you have.

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…

1 Year

It's officially been an entire year since I last held my chunky baby. Some days are doable and some are as if we lost her yesterday. The mysterious thing about grief is comes in waves. Sometimes just small tidal waves brushing the shore full of heartache and sometimes 40 foot waves of rage, anger and depression. You never know which is coming and when. Sometimes it comes from a small argument with a sister and quickly spirals into grief.. arguments are rarely ever about what it started as. I had a break down the other day, I can't even remember what sparked it but it was harsh. It was brutal. I've come to realize that I will grieve as long as I live. That as long as I miss her and as long as I love her I will grieve.






We want her so badly and my mind can't seem to stop from thinking that. I know I can't have her here, but that's all I think about. When I look at my friends babies, at dinner, at the movies, I want her there with us. She would be the same age as t…
