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

After two non-stop shifts at work, I am happy to be enjoying my first day off! After a few hours of sleep I got prettied up then headed out to have dinner with an old friend! We haven't seen each other in 3 or 4 years but we had a blast reconnecting over yummy food. I caught her up on my New York plans, Brad, and family. She caught me up on her published novel, boyfriend, and weight loss.

It was just such a nice change to have a fun conversation with another girlfriend and we will definitely be doing more of it! She has a very large fan base on the internet for doing makeup tutorials, and also does event makeup on the side. I told her over and over how awesome it is that she has gotten out there and pursued her interests of writing and makeup. I always support people going for their dreams, but get frustrated when some just talk big and never follow thru. It is refreshing to see another person with drive!

After a couple of hours and a couple of hugs, we parted ways and I went to check on my mumsy. She is doing well after her knee surgery, but is still in a good amount of pain. I know she is very ready to get life back to normal and not be so dependent on help. She is getting there slowly, and has been very appreciative of all of our sweet friends who have checked on her and gone to see her during this time! We are praying for a quick recovery.

Hubby is off playing guitar with his buddy right now, and tomorrow morning I am meeting my dad for breakfast then helping him make a big batch of our family spaghetti sauce! Yum!
