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!

Catching up, Mom Advise, and Dates

It's been a busy week here already, and I know I've been MIA on here as well. I started another private blog for Hayleigh, and after announcing I had done so, I wished I wouldn't have said a word about it at all on Facebook. To me, I was passing on something I thought was a great idea to other mothers out there, others thought I was going to keep a private journal of every crazy detail that goes on in my extended family. I honestly got the idea from Good Luck Charlie- the series on Disney Channel. I have no idea how open of a relationship I'll have with Hayleigh in 10 years, and there are topics that are not so comfortable to be handled in person- the talks I'm dreading. SO, I thought hey, wouldn't it be nice if she didn't want to hear some things come out of my mouth, she could at least read what I thought about it all.. I want to teach her about guys/ men, love, relationships, family, and just things it seems like I have just learned I want her to be ahead of me on. For some reason panties were pulled all in a wad, and it was taken way out of context. I will be making another blog just for Reid as well sometime soon. Instead of writing letters that can get lost, this is a way I can save things for both of the kids- for just in case or for just some Mom Advise along the way.

In other happenings, Allen is on his week of vacation now, and is out hunting Elk and black bear for us. I'm holding down the fort here, trying to get my mom's birthday box sent out. We still have 2 projects to make for it yet. This week, I am also getting Hayleigh signed up for her dance/gymnastics classes.

Ohh yeah! Almost forgot the very exciting news- we finally found a babysitter, and had our first date night out this year!!! Our sitter did a fabulous job with the kids, they both were smitten with her, LOVED her, and didn't want her to leave. Hayleigh was all cuddled up on the couch with her when we got back home. I had asked what the  going rate of a sitter was, and found I was a tad high, but after coming home to both of the kids, we decided that our sitter did deserve what we wanted to pay, and with paying more, hopefully she would be more inclined to come back.

On our date out, we went to Red Lobster, had a very nice dinner, then followed up with shopping kid free at Cabelas for the rest of Allen's gear.

There is soo much more I would love to say, but I don't want to be taken out of context again. It's starting to feel like that game Relay... what you started out saying sounds nothing like what was passed down along from person to person. Facebook for me might well be on the chopping block. While I like keeping up with my friends on what is going on, I don't like loosing control of my pictures or posts- which seems to be happening now, so we shall see if I keep facebook or not.
