Well, my weekend has been pretty decent. We had a family gathering yesterday which was lots of fun. Shawn's aunt and uncle live out in the country and we had the gathering at their house. His family is rather large compared to my family so, there is always plenty of people to mingle with and tons of kids running around playing with one another so that is always nice as well. We had a cornhole match and everyone had a partner. I was matched up with my MIL which was actually pretty funny because we both are just awful at playing cornhole and my hubby was matched up with a cousins kid and she is probably about 13 years old. Well, to say the least my MIL and I were out on the first round because we were so awful and my husband actually won. He won $20.00 which was great because we can now use that money to buy diapers and wipes for Cameron so we were happy about that. Shortly after the cornhole games were over we went on a hayride and well Cameron loved and so did I. I was born and raised in the city so when I get out into the country, I just love it. I really enjoy the country life and often think about moving out away from the city a little bit, but I guess that some people would think that I am already out in the country compared to closer to the Columbus area. I guess I just like the quiet life compared to what I use to deal with before I moved out away from the Columbus area. We live in a little town surrounded by cornfields and I like it..... it is rather quiet and it is away from the so called "rat race" that I use to deal with. Anyway, yesterday was lots of fun and the baby shower today was nice as well. I didn't get the chance to go see Nights in Rodanthe, but hopefully I will be able to have a date out soon. My husband and I are coming up on our 5 year anniversary so hopefully I will be able to see it before then (hahaha). Well, I am signing off for now.
I am a Christian, daughter, sister, wife, and a very proud Mommy to a beautiful little boy that was conceived through IVF. My husband and I have been married for over 7 years and truly enjoy every single day that we have with our little miracle. After a loss in 2004 and many years of infertility treatments we were finally blessed with our son in 2007. He is indeed a precious gift from God and we are so very blessed to have him in our lives.
During my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, thrift store shopping, making primitive signs & gameboards and re-finishing items with great prim potential.

My journey with infertility started back in Feb. 2004 after we lost a child due to an ectopic pregnancy. I struggled for over a year to get pregnant and then decided to seek help. We tried 6 months of clomid, intrauterine insemination (2 times) and finally IVF. We were blessed with our little miracle in January 2007 after our first round with IVF. We are so happy and he is truly a gift from God. Our story is below...check back frequently as I am constantly adding more posts, pictures and funny stories.
