This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Flashback and a College Graduate

Just wanted to remind you of what my little angel looked like this time last year! How precious!

Nick and I always just sit back and watch him, and think of how blessed we are to have him in our lives.

So as of December 18, 2010, my husband is a college graduate!! I am so proud of him! He has gone through a lot to finally get here and have a degree that he has worked hard for. It took him awhile to figure out exactly what he wanted to do for a career, but he went for it and now he has the world at his feet.

I threw a big surprise party for him that evening, and he had no idea what was going on! I was cooking snacks all day which I told him I was taking to a potluck at work. I also told him my dad was coming over for dinner that night. My dad was the first one to show up, so we just played along and chatted. Then when Nick's mom and sister got there, I acted like they were just in the area and dropped by for a bit. But then when I started putting snacks out on the table, more people showed up, and he started getting cards...well you get the idea!

We all had a great time, and we both appreciate those who came to the party and made the effort to come and celebrate with us. The actual commencement ceremony isn't until next May, so I will be sending out formal invitations for that so we can all go see my love walk across the stage for his diploma! Now--thanks to the economy--the hard part will be finding a job!

Tonight one of my coworkers had a big Christmas get-together at her house. My mother watched Brad so that Nick and I could go enjoy a night out with friends. It is so nice to be able to go to someone else's house and just munch on good food and have a good time! It's been awhile since we have been able to do that. It seems like some people say "Oh yeah! We have to get together some time" then nothing ever comes of it. Ok, we get the hint! No sense beating that dead horse, huh?

Tomorrow I have a class at work bright and early in the morning, then after that I have to stop by the office where I am doing the research study for a checkup. Then in the evening a couple of friends and my mom are stopping by for a gift exchange. But I am happy to say that today I got some Christmas baking done, packaged up, and mailed off to family in Ohio! Let's just hope it gets there speedily!


  1. Congratulations to your husband as a new college grad!! And to your family for all the new opportunities that lay before you all!!!
