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!

The night before the BIG day!!

Okay, everything that happened yesterday, was too funny not to share! I'm sitting here a nervous wreck, waiting for it to be time to go to our 19wk baby gender ultrasound, so, I have to do something to help out with all of the nerves....And, my spelling has gone to crap since becoming pregnant, and for some reason I cannot get the spell check on this site to work- so please forgive me now!!! I couldn't spell digit the other day, so I know it's bad!

Anyway, yesterday, we were quite busy. We returned books and movies we had checked out from our local library- got to show Allen the place from the outside. Then, we headed into town to return a dvd, and pick up a pack of recordable DVDs for the ultrasound in the morning. Hayleigh and I sat out in the truck and waited, while Allen took the dvd in to make the swap- he was in there for 15 minutes at least. When he came walking out, he was shaking his head... my thoughts were that they either did not have any, or they wouldn't take the unopened dvd back because I- well, Hayleigh lost the receipt within the last few days. Turns out, the gal at the return desk, would not let Allen go- stalled for quite a while, until she was messing with our rewards account, and asked him who this Ashley McCann was.... he paused, and told her, "my wife"....she replied, "OHHH"... needless to say after that, the return was made rather quickly on the dvd. Allen then said he had to ask where the recordable DVDs even were at- ended up being in a far corner on a little shelf, and only two different kinds to choose from. Apparently they are becoming a thing of the past.

We then went through McD's and ordered 2- 20 piece chicken nuggets- so I could share mine with Hayleigh. I do not know how, but the older lady in the drive through completely messed our order up- ended up with 3 large fries, 2- 20 piece nuggets, with no sauce- so back around we went, and I ended up leaving with sauce, and another 20 piece nugget for the inconvenience.... 60 nuggets was a little much!

After laughing about the lady in Best Buy hitting on Allen, and not wanting to let him go, and getting frustrated with no nugget dipping sauce, we headed towards the Grand Mesa, going through I don't know how many back roads, because of a detour- ended up finally coming out next to the airport. Went up the Grand Mesa, took 133 pictures- got shook up- literally, on some of the rough roads, but had fun, and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. We just kept saying over and over, WOW. It is amazing what all is close to us for us to go out and do now. We made it back down the mountain, and decided, since I was "cooking" and we had noticed our new Pizza Hut in our town had opened, we were having it for supper. Well, after 2 deliveries, I can say Strike 1 for them. I realize they just opened, but our food was cold, and I ended up microwaving most of it, but it was still good over all.

Now, for the really funny part.... I have been trying out Blockbuster's online movie rental deal- get 2 DVDs delivered to our home, return them- just like netflix... so, I rented We Bought a Zoo, and this other movie, that was about a high end couple, struggling with erectile dysfunction- a comedy, I had saved for Allen and I to watch. It was on the new release part for comedy online, so I had put it in our queue... well, started the movie up, all of the previews were in Spanish, with English subtitles.... I was praying the movie would not be the same. Some of the previews were Saving Private Perez, and I cannot honestly tell you any of the others... Well, the movie went to start, and I tried to change the language through the setup menu- nope- only subtitles, so we started the movie- Spanish with English subtitles... needless to say we ended up watching what was on tv...

To top the evening off, Allen was cleaning something off of the couch, he didn't want me to know he got on it- thought it would upset me since I had just thoroughly cleaned the couch- I went to get a drink out of my glass of sweet tea- went to set it down- somehow knocked it over onto the floor- broke the glass- tea everywhere... CLUMSY!!!! After cleaning up that mess, I went to cover the brownies up I had made, and the reynolds wrap went flying out of the carton, onto the floor- the whole roll. I told Allen from all of those old wives tales, this baby had better be a boy, because in the past week, I have turned into a total klutz....
