About Me

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!

From Limbo to High Gear Part Deux

continued from Tuesday's post:

Yesterday, Allen had his phone interview with Halliburton. I was at work while this was going on, and just as soon as Allen got off of the phone interview, he called me at work. He was soo excited! I cannot tell you just how great that was to hear the excitement and hope in his voice again. The person that interviewed Allen was very reassuring to him, and basically told him he would be getting a call with a job offer just as soon as he could report back to HR. This afternoon, the same lady who had called two days prior, called Allen again. This time she had a job offer! Allen was told if he wanted to accept the job offer, he needed to be in Williston, ND on March 5th to start training. Allen was smiling when he was on the phone with the lady, discussing the different things he would need to get in order for when he would make the trip out. Allen got off of the phone finally, and gave both me and Hayleigh hugs and kisses.

Through all of this long wait, it has finally paid off. We never did think we would ever be doing this, but God has a plan for us. Even though we are going through hard times, and may not be able to see what good can come out of a situation, we have to trust that there is a plan. I know I have a very hard time accepting this a lot of the time- I have to have a plan of my own.

As for if this will all work out, only time will tell. Allen will be spending a month and a half to two months out there before we will go- to make sure this will work. I imagine we will be flying up there for a few days to look at homes to rent, and the area in general before we make the big move up.

For now, we are happy that Allen has a job, and our plan is now kicked into drive. This is our chance to have a better life for our family, and I hope that this is it!
