My husband, Allen, and I are high school sweet hearts. We started dating Sep.99'- I kind of followed Allen home one day, and never did leave, is Allen's story. November 02' we were engaged, and on November 22,2003 - we were married. Having been married for 6 years in 2009, marked the 5th year we had been trying to start our family. With the referral of a Fertility Specialist from a friend, our IUI attempts ended up being a complete success despite my doubts. We welcomed our sweet little girl, Hayleigh into the world on June 30,2010 at 6:28am after 37wks and 1 day of gestation. She weighed 7lbs 14oz and was 20 in long. We found out that we were Baby #2 on April Fool's Day- a complete surprise! Reid Allen was born 11/13/12 3:24am 9lbs 8.2oz 21", after 38wks 5 days. Our 3rd baby, Eva Jane, was born on April 19, 2015 after suffering a pregnancy loss June of 2014. We are currently anxiously awaiting baby #4 due 2 days before Eva's birthday, so we are having Irish Twins! Our family is so blessed and happy to be growing!

Not so wordless Wednesday

Okay, I have no pics to post for the day. I just got up and have a visitation to go to this evening.. so here is the dilemma for today... what does a preggo woman that has out grown here dressy attire wear to a visitation? All of my black stuff is in my pre-pregnancy wardrobe, and I really did not want to have to go out and buy a shirt, or new pants just for this. I think every time I would wear it, I would think of my uncle who passed from ALS this last weekend, and I really would not enjoy wearing the outfit anyway. What do you wear to a visitation, without looking under dressed to everyone else? I guess I will just have to wing it!


  1. Ashley--Everyone will understand--just wear something that you would wear out with Allen for the evening.

    It doesn't have to be black--Ronnie is in a better place.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Hemrich and Weidner families

  2. Kathy- Thanks for the advice and prayers! I ended up finding a nice sweater and another shirt on sale at Fashion Bug- I usually don't shop there, but ended up only spending $10.99 out the door with the two shirts! They ended up working perfectly, and there were people way dressed down compared to me there too- so I did not feel bad at all.
