Birth Story 2 (or 1 depending how you look at it) - the girl


Our son came home and life was just full of surprises and adjustments but undeniable LOVE. He just made us a family. I have to say that he was an EASY amazing baby - perfect angel.

While we were adjusting to having a new born and an instant family - life was full. We were living each day just living and trying to figure it all out.

When our son was about 3 -4 months old I got so sick. Sick as in throwing up, losing more weight and just feeling spent. I thought this was the bad cold going around plus adjusting to taking care of someone full time. Fast forward a few weeks and it dawns on my... ummm I haven't had a period in a long time {something I use to track monthly - that falls on the waist side having a baby}. I took a pregnancy test - an old past pregnancy test on February 9th, 2008 [don't ask I don't know how I remembered that]. After looking at those damn sticks so many times and seeing a negative it SCARED the shit out of me that it said positive. HOW??? we had a newborn already. We were TOLD no it isn't happening. HOLY SHIT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I called in my husband and he was over joyed - WTH???? Are you serious??? I was not thrilled. Remember I am a person that likes doors to close and stay shut - so when the good old LORD changed this plan on me at first I was a little scared {wow two days of great mom moments}. I made my husband swear that he wouldn't tell anyone...yeah right he told his mom, I told my best friend and my family. Other then that the pregnancy stated in the closet until I was about 7 months - I think more out of shock.

HOWEVER, that all changed when I found out I was having my baby GIRL. I was overjoyed and finally started embracing my pregnancy.

Now fast forward a little bit as you all know I was and continue to be on WW so when I was pregnant I only gained 16 pounds. I was so scared to gain weight I only increased my points to accommodate the extra weight and I did splurge when I had a craving but other then I kept it in check.

With reading my blog I am very open about the "planner" in me. I planned my induction - yes you heard me. I wanted to ensure that my doctor was available and I just am a planner. Plus my daughter had NO room.

So we went into the hospital and got all of the needles in and my doctor popped my water. I thought it would be a gosh - nope only a little. Well before that I have to tell you I didn't have ANY contractions well when that water was popped it was like a DIESEL truck hit me. Holy shit it was fast and hard. The nurses kept asking me if I wanted to get meds - I said NO I wanted to try this natural.

About 15 minutes later I went from 3cm to 10cm. They called my doctor and had her come back {barely in time}. They were moving me into my LDR room and as I was being wheeled there my body took over - I kid you NOT your body tells you when to push and there is no stopping it. By this time my family was coming into the room because no one thought I would be giving birth this fast. I kicked everyone out and the hubs took over. He was amazing. I was able to tune everyone out but him. He helped me breath [who knew that shit helped - but it did]. I said I was ready and we started to push - literally three pushes later she was out - 16 minutes of labor. People I am not joking GOD blessed me with another miracle birth. The doctor didn't realize I was not under meds and she gave me a (what is that cut they do down there???) without meds -  now that I felt. She then numbed me alittle and she sewed me up but I was fine.

But my baby girl - I didn't hear her. I was like a baby should scream. I started panicking - there were several doctors by her. Finally this piercing noise came out of her (and she has perfected it over the last 4 years) and they brought her over to me and I was in love. A little me... our family was complete.

4 1/2 years ago

our complete family


So as I mentioned yesterday I am the proud mommy of two miracle children and without our son we believe we would never have been blessed with our little girl - hence why she is named after him.

So, I would recommend a natural vaginal birth too.

I am stopping at two miracle children because we had the best of both delivery methods, we have our boy and girl and I am afraid if I do it again I will be in labor forever. I believe in quitting when you are ahead!!

What is your birth story??

Birth story number 1 - the boy

Our first child - our son. What an amazing miracle. You know by now that he was born via my heart not my belly but I haven't REALLY talked about his birth story.

My hubs and I had tried to get pregnant for awhile: we used the basal temperature, the sticking my butt in the air for an hour after sex, waking up my hubs at 2AM every morning because that was our prime time, having a SCHEDULED do it time. To be honest it was getting old real fast. While we were struggling to get pregnant people were popping around us all of the time - I was never bitter or mad - I truly was happy for them because I would never wish infertility on anyone.

After what felt like forever we went to the doctor (two doctors actually) they told us we would not be able to naturally conceive a child on our own. We mulled over: adoption and in-vetro and on my 27th birthday we walked into an adoption agency in my home town. It was local, it was where I knew - it felt right.

We took a second out of our home (thank GOD before the market crash) and we went to work. We did home visits, AIDS testing, background checks, reference letters, therapist appointments, we created a life book and for some reason we paid to get everything expedited.

Well within 3 months of us walking through the door of the agency we were called that a healthy little boy {our son} was born. SO a little bit of honesty here. They asked if we wanted him - my first reaction was NO - I wasn't ready - I thought we had two years to prepare - we had NOTHING for a baby other then an empty room. I called my husband and he right away said YES, my MIL said YES, my mother said YES and they calmed me down. We called the agency back and said YES. I know bad mom moment...

We raced to the hospital by this time he was 10 hours old and I fell in love with him right away.

5 1/2 years ago
After we held him, cried and feed him. We raced to Babies R Us and dropped about a $1000 for bare minimum items {along with our MIL as well}. We came back that night and feed him and rocked him as long as they would let me. He was MINE, he was my son, he was part of us.

I truly believe that GOD made him just for me [OMG I am crying as I type this].

We came back the next morning at 7am on the dot and loaded him up in the car and off we went. We were a family.

AND I have to say the easiest birth - I would recommend for anyone {haha}

I look at him and I couldn't even think of having life without him. He is so pure, so handsome, all boy and all mine.

I love him so much....

Stay tuned on how the boy brought us our girl.....

500th post with a side of TMI and randomness


Wow my 500th post - that is incredible. 

I want to make it WONDERFUL and make you go OH this is why I love her - but hey you already do that hehe!!
I am beyond excited because I typically lose interest in something and move on to something new - but this space that I call my own is my savor. It is my outlet - it is my space - say what I want - be me and not care what others think! 

Well that isn't true I do care what you all think and say mostly because ALL of you have been so supportive and encouraging. 


I love this blog.

I love having followers.
I love having blog friends turn into real friendships.
I love the support.
I love the new ideas and opinions.
I love it all.
I love trying new things.


Since being part of this blogging community I have a better since of me and I also have found the greatness of having people that are so different then me and also the individuals that I swear we are like two peas in a pod. 

So since you have stuck around this long I thought I would give you a few TMI and randomness into my life

- I always wear big comfy cotton undies after the deed
- I NEVER sleep naked - I have kids and what if there is a fire people!!
- I love reading romance novels - especially ones with good endings and sex in it.
- I go "poop" for a long time - hello the only "me" time I get. {remember two kids}
- I have never gone to a strip club and I want to go
- I prefer eating to drinking
- I think about getting a tummy tuck but that scar is scary
- I love to sleep
- I have a guy as one of my bestest friends
- I love helping people but it is hard for me to ask for help

So if you are still reading at this point maybe more of you think we are two-peas-in-a-pod 

I hope you all stick around for MUCH longer.

Here is to another 500 posts.

The Employee Handbook said what???

Well with my new job approaching very soon I am having to fill out all of the new employment stuff - geez I realize What a pain in the ass this was for all my new employees having to do HOWEVER now that I am doing it SHIT it is a lot to do. I am also being a great employee and even better HR person by actually reading everything ( I have to set an example right???).

Well as I am reading my employee handbook {which I would normally just read the last page and sign it} I go over the dress policy and guess what it says............ NO DENIM - WTH??? Oh my gosh I have got so use to wearing jeans to work that about 80% of my closet is jeans and t-shirts - yikes.

HOWEVER, the bright side it is time to go SHOPPING. I have a budgeted amount set aside and guess what the hubs gave me a bigger budget on it!!!

So here are a few things that I would love to buy {the cheaper the better of course}




This but with it buttoned up just a little


As you can see I LOVE black and grey's but I do go with the "in fashion" colors to add to it.
I typically like to go with regular black slacks and I want to punch them up with cute shoes and tops.

So I will report back to you with what I get...

What is your style?
What is your "go-to" item?

Angies Run 2013

We just had our Angie's Run this past weekend. It is the 3rd Annual and each year gets better. To recap a little Angie's Run was started in honor of my brother's soon to be wife's sister who was killed a few years ago. We hold this event around her birthday every year and it is a celebration of her life.
 
Check out past posts
 
This year we have close to 20+ trailers and well over 60 people. We ride bikes {rhino in my case}, kids run around, we laugh, people drink, we also have a moment of silence for her and a prayer is said for her every year.
 
We also get t-shirts for everyone and all of the proceeds go to a battered women's and children's center. So far we have been able to raise over $5000 for the organization.
 
So if you are around in January near Octoillo Wells please come out.

Please get ready for a photo dump...

All of our riding toys - Rhino {moms}, Big Quad {Dad's}, Red Quad {the boys} and finally the girls


This trip was even more special because my brother proposed to his girlfriend. We love her so much already but now it is official.

In 2008 when Beth was quite pregnant with their eldest daughter, Truly, they would refer to her ever growing belly as "Truly's Sanctuary". Ron had been going to school full-time while slinging coffee to make ends meet. Along with the arrival of Truly Louise, it was becoming a very busy first year of marriage. The 4th of July rolled around, their first major holiday as a family, and because of Ron's busy schedule he was going to miss out on the festivities. When he left for work it was clear he was feeling pretty low. Beth had to think of something not only to cheer him up, but to let him know she was always thinking about him and proud of the sacrifices he was making for their new family. A ridiculous snapshot of Ron wearing a giant fake mustache instantly came to mind and Beth knew what she had to do. Along with a cheap package of fireworks and a couple of beers, she bought the art supplies needed to carry out operation: Cheer Up Daddy. That night Ron was greeted by his 3 month old daughter wearing a onesie with that silly picture of him right on the front. He instantly felt great…it was personal; it made him laugh and feel loved! That night Ron and Beth couldn’t stop thinking of the different onesies they wanted to make for Truly, then for their friend’s kids. They thought of the dresser full pastel baby clothes adorned with kittens and bunnies and how they'd love to exchange them for eclectic and artsy designs…it didn’t take long to realize that they were on to something.

After much research, experimenting with the best material's out there, sketching and designing…TrulySanctuary was born…along with their second daughter Normandy Mae only 13 Months younger than Truly…each item is still handmade by Ron and Beth in their very busy home full of love.

Their line of quirky designs has received attention from parents everywhere-celebrities too! Each idea begins on a simple sketchpad and each graphic is designed with only the hippest kids in mind. TrulySanctuary keeps items unique, so no other kid on the playground will be as cool as yours.

Ron and Beth design for themselves. They're an offbeat family who has escaped the "rat race" just in time. They've stopped driving a car and starting using their feet and bicycles. They've stopped clocking in for someone else. They live simply and embrace community. Their designs reflect their favorite things and priorities, so every time they connect with a customer, they're connecting with someone of like mind.

If you want to know less about T-Shirts and more about the unconventional family behind them, find TrulySanctuary on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram…they're nuts.

They are also offering one of my readers 1 shirt of your choice on their shop...... a Rafflecopter giveaway

It happened again...Tales of an Accident Prone Hubby


Growing up I was active YET not active enough to get hurt. I didn't play sports or rough house I mean come on I got my Letterman jacket for academics and FFA (yes I did so leave it be). My brother played sports but he didn't get hurt much. The only time I can remember my brother being hurt was when he was born he cracked his caller bone and then it broke again I think at 1 or 2 years old {until my hubs came in my life and we bought my brother his first dirt bike and guess what he broke his other collar bone - no joke}

So let me tell you being married to an ACCIDENT PRONE husband - well it is interesting to say the least.

To give you a full understanding since being married to my wonderful accident prone hubby the following has happened:

- Jammed his thumb during a race NOW he doesn't have full feeling in it
- Crashed BADLY where he got pinned in between the exhaust and rear tire BETWEEN his legs (pre-kids  didn't have me worried at all NOT) it knocked him out, lost feeling (temporarily) waist down and a HUGE hole in his leg - took off 5 layers of skin - wonderful.
- Road wash - BIG time on his arms and shoulders - watched when they had to scrap that sh** out with a wire brush.
- THE BIG DADDY of accidents - cracked open his skull riding a motorcycle and didn't know who I was. Then we head to the hospital and he throws up all over me and did I mention I was over 7 months pregnant - yeap!

So fast forward to this weekend (amazing family trip to Angie's Run you can read about our last trip here.. this years trip will be up soon)


So this past weekend my hubs decided it was smart {I think stupid - see how women differ} to go for a night ride. LONNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGG story short he went up on a hill and rolled our Rhino and he smashed his hand BADLY. So he was out of commission the rest of the weekend.

I have become a wonderful nurse and I make sure to nurse him back to health because I love him BUT this stuff scares me every time. I now understand how parents and in my case wives would love to wrap their loved ones in bubble warp.

I would LOVE to hinder his spirit and make him STOP his desire to do adrenaline minded activities but it can't be my decision.

So as I PRAY every time he goes out to an activity I just hope the good lord hears me.

So as you can see I am married to accident prone adrenaline addicted man (what a great combo).

So I will PRAY and he will PLAY and I hope that we find a common ground on this.

NOTE: My daughter is accident prone too and now the boy wants to get into BMX racing - OMG.

Sunday Social - all about the 3's

To get back in the swing of things I thought I would do a link up . Because I am waiting for pictures of our wonderful weekend.

Top 3 foods - cucumbers with Greek yogurt, dark chocolate sea salt anything and pizza thin crust with mushrooms. I really am a lover of food but these three I am just getting hungry typing about it.

First 3 things you do when you wake up: snooze as long as possible, shower and take vitamins - the wonderful adult gummy ones!

The last 3 things you do before bed : prayers with the babies, wash face, pee.

3 shows you don't miss. Ok with this I have to say I use a DVR so I never know when shows actually come on but the shows that I love currently are: Tia & Tamara, NCIS LA and RHOA.

3 places I want to visit: New York, Colorado and Paris - so random.

3 people you can count on : hubs, mom and brother

Can't wait to see where this journey takes me next - what I can tell you is my blog will be all new starting very soon - stay tuned. Also I am part of a great giveaway please go check it out...

Late is the NEW on time

I can remember a time that I would arrive 15 - 20 minutes early then the start time of anything - work, event, meeting, etc...

NOW I don't know if it is my BFF rubbing off on me or the fact I have kids but I swear I can not make it on time ANYWHERE.

I get up earlier, I pre-pack things, put stuff in my car the night before, shower at night, lay clothes out, pack lunches, the list goes on for what I do ahead of time and it just doesn't matter - I arrive anywhere between 5 - 15 minutes LATE.

Why is that?
Does anyone else go through this?

Is lateness maybe a gender thing? a mother thing? an older thing? WHAT is it??? Can someone explain this to me??

Or maybe it is that I am TIRED 99% of the time now a days - could that be it??

Or maybe it is that I HAVE so many responsibilities now? {the time that it was me and my dog ahhh}

Or maybe it is the fact that I have to do it by myself Monday - Thursday and when Friday gets here and my hubby can help in the morning I slow down even more?


I GOT It.....

Got what -  you may ask???

Well, remember when I wrote Feeling Right now!! If not check it out. This is why I have not had any desire to write because all of my focus was on finding my happiness again and a career that I could continue to love.

Finding a job is so consuming and it seriously sucks the life out of you. I was having so many emotional highs and lows and I hated it - why could so much ride on that one call?? Well it did and it does - my career fulfills me, it supports our family, it provides medical for me and the babies, it gives me "adult" exposure, it is something I love. SO when you are waiting for "that" one call it can be so horrible yet if it is that "right" call the most amazing.

So again what did I get??

I GOT the job.
Yes I did!!
 
So excited, yet nervous for this new journey.
 
I am hoping once I get back (or start) our new routine - life and blogging will be much more in the fore front.
 
CHANGE is happening.
A new job
A new set of hours
A new school for the girl
 
I think everything will be wonderful but just have to get into the swing of the new.
 
My new job is still in the HR Field but a different industry.
 
So I want to THANK everyone for their supportive words, texts, comments and encouragement on this path.
 
I asked the good LORD to open the doors that were suppose to be open and close the doors that need to be closed!!!

No KIDS Allowed


A few weeks ago my BFF and I FINALLY got to go out. A girl’s night so excited. A night for us without hubbies without kids is PRICELESS. We first headed Starbucks (of course – you know me – Black Ice Tea with Lemonade unsweetened) {the BFF had a gift card – thank you very much} then we were off to the cheap theater to see Pitch Perfect {she paid for me – hey it was only $3 bucks each hehe} . OKAY that movie was just to cute – predictable yet entertaining. We ended up having to park {she drove us} pretty far from the movie theater so when we exited I swear I wanted to climb into my BFF’s arms for her to hold me – that cold!! Once in the car with the heater blasted I was finally defrosting. We headed over to Pei Wei {I love this place and they are closing up everywhere so we drove to the closest one BUT yummy} – again the BFF had a gift card.



This was turning out to the best date I have had in a long time – I was wined, dined and paid for with no “deed” needed at the end haha.



Sorry… back to the story. Well while we were at Pei Wei on our kid less night just chatting, cursing, talking about sex and everything and anything on our minds UNTIL they set the adorable family next to us – 2 kids about the age of our children. They were screaming, yelling, complaining – just being kids. This is when it hit me WTF??? Why don’t restaurants have a NO KIDS ALLOWED section?? I am so for it. I have kids and I get it – the rarity that us parents get with children should be cherished and honored. So how do I start a petition for this – anyone????

Also, stay tuned I have some great NEWS to share with everyone very soon.... And maybe I will start writing about my kids too hehe!!
