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

Halfway thru the Month

I hope everyone who is blessed to be a mother had a wonderful Mother's Day! And as a courageous survivor of infertility, I urge you all to not forget those who are still trying, or have lost a pregnancy in their quest!

For mine, my darling husband got me some of my favorite snacks and some new sunglasses! He picked out a card from him, and a special card from our little one (who "signed" both). We all took my mother out for lunch then she came and hung out at my house for the afternoon.

This month has just flown by and now we are on the countdown till my birthday! Only 3 more weeks......then it's Brad's birthday and Nick's birthday....eek!

I tried a new nail polish style that I found here and I was very happy with how it turned out!

It is sort of an imitation--and much easier way--of the water marbling technique that has become popular. You can do any color, and try different swirl designs.

As we draw closer to August we are resigning ourselves to living here in Oklahoma for a few more years. As much as we would love to start fresh in a new exciting place, we can take a hint that the time is not right! There are several more houses in my neighborhood for sale now that summer is almost here so the competition is beefing up. Ours is still competitively priced for the area so we shall see!

I've enjoyed a couple days off after our getaway but tomorrow it is back to the grind at work. This weekend is the yearly Italian festival that we attend and we are all very excited about that excursion!  After that is Memorial Day, then June will already be here! We have lots of things to keep us busy this summer and our little man will be starting school in August so this will be our last few months with him here everyday with us. It will be very different with him gone, but I know he will love being around other kids and getting to learn new things everyday.
