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!

Monday's Flight of the Bumble Bee and Snowmass

Today is one of those Mondays I really love... Allen is coming home!!! The past few weeks flew right on by, and I'm guessing this week will fly by as well since we will be flying out to go back to Illinois on this coming Sunday.

There are lots of things going on right now. I'm planning on making our own detergent from a recipe from Pinterest today. I just need to run up to the dollar store for some storage jugs.

I just got Reid's car seat ready to go last night. So weird calling it his- it was Hayleigh's not too long ago. I had stored the plastic part of the seat with the bases out in the garage, and had kept the cover for it in a tub with our other baby stuff. Well, last night, I got a wild whim to get it out, wash it, and get it all assembled. Needless to say, while the cover was finishing in the dryer, I went out and got the seat, and on the way back in the garage, I was praying I could put it all back together since I had taken it apart over a year and a half ago. I was looking at the straps that were disconnected, and cringed. Anyway, I did manage to get it cleaned up, and the cover back on with no problems at all. Funny I was scared to take it apart back when Hayleigh was using it. I even managed to buy a body positioner for Reid for the car seat too, but I'm thinking it will just be a stroller thing. I realize he will be really small, but I don't think he will be as small as what the area is now in the seat with the positioner in the seat, minus the head positioner too.

Reid has been moving around once again, and hasn't been freaking me out so much anymore. I still think he has been treating me really well, being extra gentle. Maybe he will be our Ferdinand the bull??

I keep procrastinating on getting stuff done this morning. I need to get the house straightened up and Hayleigh has been making this seem like a big job to come. She currently has all of her toys our on the couch now, and it is driving me crazy to say the least. Makes me claustrophobic.

I have some special things planned for this week that Allen is home. Friday will be 13 years we have been together now..aka 13 years since I followed him home from school. Best decision I've ever made, next to Hayleigh and Reid. I'll have more on a few of the surprises I have ready for Allen. I don't want to chance him getting on here, or someone asking him about them by mistake. Other than that, tonight, we are eating at our "Monday" place- Red Robbins for supper. It is a tradition for us when Allen gets back. Then, I bought the new movie, "What to Expect, When You're Expecting". It has been soo hard for me not to go ahead and watch it by myself since Friday, so tonight that is on the agenda to watch with some popcorn.

We spent our weekend in Snowmass Saturday and Sunday, for the big balloon festival, and had a great time with my aunt, uncle, and cousin. Definitely something you don't see everyday. We had a great time visiting, and letting the girls play. It was soo wonderful besides the visiting, to get our fall clothes out! I was so happy to get to wear jeans and a sweater cardigan with my new knee high boots- it was great!!
