Off to visit my parents

Well, I just got done packing my bags and I still have lots to do before we leave to go visit my parents tomorrow. I am quite excited because I don't get to see them too often or as often as I would like. My Mom and I are like two peas in a pod, from the same mold or I guess you could even say cloned. We are just so much alike that it is unbelievable. It is all a good thing!! We like the same things, think alike, act alike and we are just like best of friends. I talk to my Mom all of the time. A couple times a day and I enjoy it tremendously. It is hard for us to pass a day without talking to each other so, I guess you could say it is a good thing that we have unlimited long distance (lol). Anyway, we are taking out of here early tomorrow morning. We will probably get there around 9 am and visit with my Dad for a little bit and then we will leave for Amish Country. We normally eat at our favorite restaurant (yummy food I tell ya) and then we will hit the antique stores and of course the primitive stores. Our favorite store is Country Gatherings in Berlin, Ohio. They have some cute stuff and the amish made furniture is great!! My Mom had purchased quite a few pieces for me in the past, one of which is my cabinet in my kitchen. Look at "Some of my favorite things" post and you will see my black cabinet. LOVE IT!! Anyway, we always enjoy our time together and they are moments that I cherish and replay over and over in my head. I just can't wait to see them and visit and one of my favorite things is my Mom's cooking. Ah yes, there is nothing better then your own Mom's cooking. She is fixing homemade ranch dressing for my salad, her homemade lasagna and carrot cake. Yep, I think I will be in heaven!! So, what are some favorites that your Mom fixes for you?
Come on - share because I am all ears!!

Trick-or-Treat Night

Last night was a fun filled evening for all. We took Cameron Trick-or-Treating for the 2nd time since he was born. Last year he was a yellow duck (a cute one at that) and this year he was none other then the famous Mickey Mouse. Cameron is totally into Mickey Mouse so when I found the costume on E-Bay, I of course had to buy it. I lost so many bids and then I finally ended up with 2 costumes. Oh well, I will just re-sell them on E-Bay next year. Anyway, Cameron loved walking around to all of the houses. He wasn't into saying Trick or Treat and instead he simply stuck his pumpkin out and said "Candy Peese". It was so cute!! Everyone got a kick out of it and Shawn and I couldn't stop laughing. He is just too stinkin cute. I took some pictures of him and thought I would share them with you. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and don't forget we FALL BACK this weekend - YAHOO!!

Thankful Thursday

There are so many things that I am thankful for, but today I experienced some of the things that I miss since being a SAHM. Yep, believe it or not there are things that I use to experience that I don't get to experience that much anymore and today after a looooong time I was able to enjoy these simple things that I have missed so much. If you read my previous post, you know that I had a doctors appt today. Well, I ended up going by myself and to be honest it was quite nice to have some alone time..... something I don't get alot of anymore.

I jumped into my Honda CRV (totally miss driving it by the way) and off I went. The first think I am thankful for today is the sun that slowly started peeking up ahead of me as I am driving down the highway. It was a beautiful sight to say the least. The other thing that I am thankful for is the wonderful Contemporary Christian music that played on my radio. If I listen to music anymore it is on a CD and rarely have the chance to listen to my radio so I was very thankful for the music that moved me this morning on our local station. I also had the opportunity to sing like no ones business today. I turned up the music and I sang like some crazy woman. People passing me were probably thinking that I was some nut case, but I didn't care. It felt GREAT to be out of the house and by myself. I listened to Chris Tomlin, Natalie Grant, MercyMe, Nicole C. Mullin, Casting Crowns and the list went on. I was just so thankful for the time that I got to spend with God this morning. I enjoyed it tremendously and I am so thankful that I was able to experience that time today. You don't ever realize that you miss it that much until it is gone.

It seems as though since Cameron was born I don't have much free "alone" time anymore. I wouldn't change it for anything, but everytime we go somewhere in the car it is either Cameron and I or Shawn is in for the ride as well. There is just something about having that special one on one time with God, that alone time, that time to sing and worship God and thank him for all of the wonderful things he has done in your life. Don't get me wrong..... I thank him daily and it doesn't require me to have a ride in the car in order to do that, but today was just different. I felt so close to our God and it was a WONDERFUL feeling!! What a great way to start out the day!! So, what are you thankful for today?

My Urine Sample Adventure

I was up at the butt crack of dawn this morning....literally up with the chickens and roosters!! I had called my doctors office yesterday and explained that I needed to get in to see him. Some of you don't know this, but now you will. I am a diabetic and was diagnosed quite a few years ago. Unfortunately, it runs in my family so I was just one of those lucky ones to get it. Anyway, my glucose levels have been running awfully high, I have had no energy, very tired all the time and I guess you could say down right irritable. So, the doctors office got me in this morning. They changed my meds around, ordered bloodwork, took a lovely urine specimen and the list goes on. I told the gal that took my blood this morning that she was just in time for Halloween. I mean for Pete's Sake they took 3 large vials of blood and I am surprised they left me with any blood at all. I was done with that and then she gave me a small (wee little) cup to pee in. Ok, I wish I would have know that they were going to ask me for a urine sample because right before I went in for my appt. I had to go potty so I went potty. Have you ever tried to give them a urine sample when you don't have to go? Oh geesh, that was quite a chore. I sat in there for the longest time.....they probably thought I fell in. It was a good thing they had drinking cups on the wall because I partaked in large amounts of water in order to help me pee and I even ran the water thinking that it would help the urge to go. My Mom always told me to run the water because it might help me go, but unfortunately that didn't quite work for me this morning. Ahh, I was getting quite frustrated and nervous to say the least. I normally don't worry about what other people think, but I was in there for awhile trying to go and then finally out of no where comes a very small stream. OH, I WAS SO EXCITED!! I finally had urine...... it was like I hit gold (lol). Anyway, I was relieved to say the least that I was finally able to go and then what happens? Can you think of what happened next? Yep, you guessed right!! I pee'd right on my hand. Gotta love it. What should be a simple urine test turned into something so difficult and irritating to say the least. Why do us women have it so difficult when men just have to aim and shoot? Other then my lovely urine sample adventure, I have to have an ultrasound done on my gall bladder to see if some issues that I have been experiencing could be caused by my gall bladder. Afterall, everyone else in my family has had theirs removed so I am sure that I am doomed for that as well. Gotta love inheriting things from your family.....especially those not so good things. So, you wonder what is next on my list today. I guess we will take it as it goes and just roll with the punches.

Mommy loves to Brag

I know, I know, every Mommy loves to brag about their child or children. I had to brag today about Cameron and how smart he is becoming. Last night I cut Cameron's hair as well as Shawn's and afterwards I had to give Cameron a bath to get all of the hair off him. Before I forget make sure to check out my next week's Not Me! Monday posts (pretty funny). Anyway, let me continue on with the bragging. I was getting Cameron's jammies ready along with a diaper and off we went up the stairs. Every single time we go up stairs I always make sure to count with him and last night was no exception. The only difference is that he decided to start counting all by himself and Shawn and I were shocked by what we heard. We knew that he could count to 5, but when he started counting after that we were amazed by how smart he was. It is amazing when you see such a small child know so much. He is smart and he is learning more and more everyday. We sometimes think he is too smart for his own good, but that will be a positive for him as he continues to grow. I think every parents wishes only the best for their little ones and even though we love to keep them small, we still wish only the best for our children. Mommy is so proud of you Cameron. I love you more and more every single day!!

Pumpkin Carving Time

We had a fun time tonight. We promised Cameron that we would carve his pumpkin, so we held up our end of the bargain. I am sure he wouldn't know one way or another, but we always try to keep our word and we truly enjoy doing little things to make him happy. I am not sure that he enjoyed the pumpkin carving process. We tried to get him involved and allow him to dig into the pumpkin and feel the insides, but he wasn't too into that and we didn't force him. He was perfectly content just watching Daddy and I clean it out and then carve the face. He was pretty happy once the face was complete. Here are a few pictures that I wanted to share with you.

Writing to our local Congressmen

Well, I just got done typing a letter to our local Congressmen here in Ohio. I wanted to take some time to express my thoughts and concerns when it came to infertility coverage by insurance companies or I guess I should say the lack of infertility coverage. Did you know that back in 1998, the United States Supreme court ruled that reproduction is a major life activity under the "Americans with Disabilities Act." This ruling demonstrates the importance of reproduction and the impact that infertility, in which the ability to reproduce is impaired, has on the lives of men and women. Insurers have been arguing for years that bearing children is a lifestyle choice, BUT it is not a choice to have a disease that prevents a person from having the option to bear children. It is unfortunate to know that insurance companies do not provide coverage for treatment to overcome this disease, but single out infertility for exclusion. I find this to be discriminatory!! I just want couples out there like my husband and I to have the opportunity to experience the joy of parenthood. They shouldn't have to worry about going bankrupt in order to start a family or grow a family. Our voices should be heard and I am hoping that by sending a letter to a couple people in Congress, that it will help and hopefully encourage them to help us and many others as we struggle with this horrible disease.

I encourage you today to help others. Make your voice be heard and hopefully we can all help one another in this disease!!

Not Me! Monday

It's that time again to share some embarrasing moments with you from the previous week that I so did not do, would never do and would never think about doing. You gotta check out Mckmama and her site in order to participate and make sure you spend some time reading other posts as well by all the other guys and gals totally addicted to this fun game!!

1) I so did not try to get out of going with my SIL to Kings Island because I didn't want to be scared by the creepy people dressed up for Halloween. Nope, not me!

2) I did not and would never try to tempt my hubby with a sexy nightie with hopes that he would stay home with me instead of making me go and get scared out of my wits by the creepy and goulish monsters at Kings Island. I would never do such a thing...... no way!!

3) Oh no, I never get scared and I am not a scaredy cat. Nope, not me!!

4) I did not have to end up going to Kings Island because my hubby thought it would be mean to not go since my SIL bought the tickets for us for our upcoming anniversary

5) I so did not even joke with my SIL telling her that she could've given me movie tickets instead of these tickets to the amusement park where I would be scared while walking around

6) I so did not think I was young again and ride the Firehawk at Kings Island

7) I would never ever ride a roller coaster and scream the whole way through

8) I did not ride the roller coaster and almost mess my pants. Oh no, I am way too young to do that.

9) I did not dream about posting my Not Me! Mondays last night

10) I did not dream about my hubby eating a starfish fresh out of the ocean and get excited that I could blog about it. I would never dream about something so stupid.

What a wonderful hubby I have

We have really had an enjoyable weekend here in Ohio. Saturday night was quite exciting since we went to Kings Island and enjoyed some roller coasters courtesy of my SIL. Be sure to check out my Not Me! Monday posts about that. Did I say that I think I am getting too old for roller coasters? Anyway, it was alot of fun and I send out a BIG thank you to my SIL for taking my hubby and I and for buying the tickets. Awww, she is so tweet!!

Anyway, I decided to take advantage of the quiet time today and enjoy a nice quiet nap. Cameron was sound asleep in his crib and my dear hubby was watching football so I decided to go lay down in bed and take a nap. Ah, it was so nice to have a nap. I was worn out from walking all around Kings Island last night and we got in waaaaaaay past our bedtime last night (lol). Cameron and Shawn woke me up with some sweet kisses and Cameron of course had to open the blinds and jump on the bed (gotta love that when you first wake up). I came downstairs to a clean home. The laundry was all caught up, the toys were picked up and the dinner was already in the oven. WOW - what more could I have asked for when I woke up from a nice long and quiet nap? My hubby is so good to me and he was so my knight and shining armor last night at Kings Island. Gotta love him!!

Your Gonna Miss This

As Cameron grows bigger and bigger I realize that there are so many moments that I am gonna miss. I already miss the moments that he use to share with me as we snuggled on the couch when he was wee little. I can barely get him to stay on my lap for very long anymore. He is such a busy little bee and doesn't want to miss out on anything. Here is a picture that my hubby took of us while we were camping last weekend. Ah, I loved sharing that moment with him, even if he was asleep. He is such a sweet little boy and I can't help, but to want to hold on to him forever and ever. Anyway, here is the picture. ENJOY your special moments with your little ones and be sure to cherish them forever. I know that I am everyday!!

A Friday Funny

A couple of my new blogging friends are sharing some Friday Funnies. So, I decided to share a Friday Funny of my own that has to do with my son Cameron. Take a look at the picture below and then I will gladly tell you the story behind it. Be sure to look closely at what he appears to be doing with the silverware.

I found this pretty funny. I hope you do as well. Just the other day I was cleaning out the dishwasher. I now know that I should empty the silverware out first instead of the dishes. Anyway, I was fiddling around with the dishes in the cupboard. I was trying to make room for my 9x13 baking dish and I hear Cameron messing around with the silverware holder. I turned my head real fast to see what he was doing and noticed that he was just playing with the silverware. I got done putting my pan in the cupboard, I turn around and there was Cameron taking all of the silverware out of the holder, licking each and every one of them and then putting them down on the dishwasher door. As you can see he licked quite a few of them, but didn't have a chance to get to all of them. I couldn't believe that he was doing that. I guess when I told him that we needed to clean some dishes he thought that they all needed to be licked clean (lol). Anyway, hope you enjoyed my Friday Funny!!
Now it is time to share yours...... go ahead and leave me a comment!! I can't wait to hear your story.

Thankful Thursday

I picked up this idea from a couple other blogging friends and thought I would try my hand at it on this cold Thursday morning. So, what are you thankful for today? Share it on your blog or feel free to leave a comment.
~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~
Today I am thankful for many things. First of all, I am thankful that I have such a wonderful God. Our God is understanding and loves us unconditionally. I am not perfect, actually pretty far from perfect and I know that I have my faults and I know for a fact that I am not worthy of his love, but he loves me no matter what and I am so thankful for that and to him. Thank you God for loving me no matter what my faults are and for always encouraging me to be a better person. You have taught me so much about being a Mom, daughter, teacher, wife, sister and servant and I feel so very blessed to have you walk this road with me everyday. I know that I couldn't handle this all on my own and with you walking by my side every single day makes the journey that much more special. You truly are an amazing God and I love you!!
I am also very thankful for the family that I have. Once again God had his hand in making me a part of this family. I have wonderful parents that I love and adore and can't imagine life without them. I have a sister that definitely needs God in her life, but I still love her and offer her help and guidance every single day of my life. I have a husband that is absolutely wonderful..... he loves me for who I am and never looks down on me. He cares for my family as much as I do and that means the world to me. Shawn is my best friend, confidant and a wonderful father to our son. He is truly the love of my life and I am so happy that God sent him my way. It is neat to see how God works in your life. I must say that my Thankful Thursday couldn't be complete without saying that I am also thankful for my son Cameron. This little boy of mine brings so much happiness and love to my life on a day in and day out basis. He is a miracle and a wonderful gift from God. I knew once again that when I was going through the fertility treatments that I couldn't go through it alone. I had my husband and the support of my family, but once again.... nothing compares to the love, help and guidance from our Lord. I turned it all over to God and told him that I couldn't go on this journey alone.... I needed his help! I need him to take all of my burden, stress and worry and carry it for me. I knew that if I wanted to be a Mother then I had to rely on him to help me. After years and years of trying, infertilty treatments after infertility treatments, I was finally blessed with my precious little miracle. I couldn't believe it!! I was pregnant and I was so excited. My dreams of becoming a Mom were finally going to come true. We are blessed every single day that we wake up and see that precious smiling face. Cameron is our light in the darkest of days and God so richly blessed us beyond our imagination and for that I am VERY thankful. You often wonder why you have to walk the rough roads in order to get to a smooth one, but as time passes you will eventually see the reasoning behind it all.
I will leave you today with a Bible verse that really speaks to my heart and helps me through some tough times.
"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

Wordless Wednesday

The World Today As Most Of Us Know It

What a day it has been! I just got off the phone from talking with my parents and I guess you could say that they totally depressed me. My parents retired quite a few years ago after 35 years of working at Columbia Gas. They worked hard to retire at a decent age and they were quite comfortable when it came to their home, cars, living and spending. Well, I know that they aren't the only people that have lost money in the stock market, but I know that they have lost quite a bit and now they are freaking out. They have a condo that they live in now that is on a golf course and it has an absolutely beautiful view however they are currently trying to sell it. This condo has been on the market for over a year now and they just can't seem to unload it. They just found out last week that they lost a HUGE amount of money in the stock market and they aren't sure that they will be able to rebound from it. They are depressed and unfortunately I am the glue that tends to hold my family together and I am often called the peacemaker, but I am not sure that there is much that I can do to help them out in these hard times. I was talking with my Dad on the phone this morning and he started crying.... it broke my heart!! He told me that he thought that when they retired that they would be set for life, be able to enjoy life as normal retired people do however he is trying to cut corners everywhere, selling back their car that they recently bought and he can't help, but to feel depressed. I tried my best to get him to understand that money isn't always everything. I tried to tell him that I understand where they are coming from, what they are dealing with and told them that I would do anything I could to help cheer them up. Well, unfortunately I guess there is nothing that I can do to help or at least that is what he told me. Will they be able to rebound from such a HUGE loss? Will the stock market ever go up again? Will they sell their condo anytime soon? Will they be able to see some light at the end of the tunnel? These are all questions that we have, but don't have any answers to and times just keep getting worse and worse in the world today.

With the election coming up, it could mean better times or worse times for all of us. The gas prices are going down, but the stock market needs to be going up and which presidential nominee is going to make a change for us? Which man is going to help our economy and help the people of the United States? I myself am not sure that we have a man that can help us, that can turn the world around, but the time is growing near and we unfortunately need to pick the lesser of the two evils. It is a crying shame that Ronald Reagan isn't still alive and well today. I myself would love to see him back in office!! It is a scary time for all of us. Jobs are being cut by huge companies, the working world is dwindling and the news is just down right depressing. I myself try not to let it bother me because hearing about the bad news from my parents is enough. I try to be upbeat, positive and just let God take care of it all. I talk to my parents and tell them that they need to stay positive, to allow God to carry their burden, but it is hard for them to see especially when they are so beat down by all of the bad news that is going on in their lives and around them. I pray every day that things will get better for all of us, but it is really sad when you see two people age 62 that worked so freaking hard for practically their whole life and now they aren't even sure if they will have enough money to live on for the rest of their lives. What do you say to them? How do you comfort them? It is just a very frustrating time for so many people in this world today!!

Fall Clean Up

I have big plans this weekend. We are going to cut all of my flowers back this weekend and pitch the dead. I love my flowers, but when Fall rolls around, I am ready to cut everything back and prepare it for another year. If you are interested in seeing some of my flowers then you should hop on over to my other blog site which is
I love flowers and I love photography so when you put the two of them together you definitely get something beautiful. My Ohio Flowers blog is not only dedicated to my flower garden, but many other nature pictures are included in it as well.

It will be a busy weekend, but after everything is cut back for the year then we will be all set for next year and unfortunately the arrival of winter (UGH). Yep, I am not looking forward to winter at all. Are you?

Our Pike Lake Camping Trip

Our camping trip was GREAT!! We had a very well deserved break and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We didn't shower all weekend long which was kinda awful, but it was truly a nice treat to come home and take a nice hot shower. Anyway, here are some pics of our camping trip. The scenery was absolutely beautiful and Cameron had a GREAT time!!



Not Me! Monday - Part 5

It is that time again.... Not only do I love Monday's because I get to share with you everything that I didn't do, wouldn't do, dare to do, or ever think about doing, but because I can hear all about everyone else and their stories. So, check out MckMama's site and take part in this carnival of fun which happens every single Monday. You will totally love being a part of the merry-go-round of fun. Here we go.....
1) I did not sit in my comfy chair for a week because I saw a spider fall off the ceiling and then crawl into my chair. Nope, not me!
2) I did not totally freak out over the spider and clean my chair with the vacuum attachments for about 20 minutes. Nope, I would never freak out over a spider! Check out the spider pic in a previous post. YIKES!!
3) I did not go camping all weekend long in a tent.
4) I did not go all weekend long without taking a shower because I was camping. Heck no, that must have been the people beside us...
5) I did not even use a porta-potty all weekend long because there was nothing else to use and then complain about the awful stench.
6) I did not even sleep in a tent in 30 degree weather and enjoy it
7) I did not get totally ticked off because I lost 3.5 lbs and then have AF arrive and gain all of it back except 1 lb. Oh, I just love Aunt Flo for doing that to me!!
8) I did not feel totally relaxed while camping, enjoy some yummy food over the fire, feel totally proud of myself for really roughing it while camping and most importantly enjoy a nice hot shower after I got home yesterday.

Off to go Camping

Quite nippy this morning, but that definitely isn't going to stop me from camping this weekend. We have the car packed and we are ready. Now we are just waiting for little man to wake up. We are trying to let him sleep as much as he can so he isn't cranky, but I don't think he could be cranky for anything. He is ALWAYS a happy boy!!

I finished baking my pumpkin cinnamon muffins last night and they were delicious!! I had to have one and of course Cameron thought it was cake so, he had to try some too. So, we all had a muffin and they were yummy!!

On Another note..... I woke up this morning with some cramping and I am SO hoping and praying that AF doesn't decide to join us on our trip. What more do I need then to have good ole aunt flo come for a visit. Hmmm, that would not be a good thing and I am hoping she decides to wait til our return home. Ughh, why is it that she always has to come at the most ridiculous times? I personally wish that she would stay away for another 9 months, but I know that probably won't happen. I am prepared for her visit just in case.

Well, I will leave you with a picture that I took of some trees at Pike Lake a couple years back. I thought the picture turned out neat. Hopefully I will have more pictures to share when we get home.

Some of my Favorite Things Around the House

I thought it would be fun to take pictures of a few of your favorite things "around the house." So, if you are up to joining in on the fun then be sure to leave your comment so we can check out your site. I am not sure how to do the Mr. Linky or else I would attempt my hand at it, but I am not super savy like that. Anyway, here we are a few of "MY" Favorite things around the house. Have fun with this!!

MY FAVORITE "BOYS". My husband Shawn and my son Cameron.

What more can I say..... Sweet Memories of MY FAMILY!!

An Amish made cabinet that I just love. Definitely a favorite piece of furniture.

This is an old antique ladder that I hung from my kitchen ceiling and decorated with red fake berries, old antique kitchen utensils, Longaberger baskets and a few other items . I truly enjoy decorating around the house.

Here is Mr. Carrot Socks and a jar full of my Grandma's old buttons. Mr. Carrot Socks was a gift from my Mom and the buttons were something that my Grandma always collected. I proudly display the buttons in memory of my Grandma who passed away back in 2003.

These are my Grandpa's marbles that he use to play with when he was a young boy. He won quite a few contests and has since passed away. Definitely a favorite of mine that I proudly display in memory of him.

Here is another favorite..... my bellycast that I did when I was 9 months pregnant with Cameron. This is definitely something that I will cherish forever!! It was truly a blessing being pregnant and now having my precious son.

We are big Ohio State Buckeye Fans. We especially love Ohio State Football so here is one of my favorites in our home. It is our OSU Bathroom that is upstairs.
So, join in on the fun and proudly display some of your favorites around the house!! I can't wait to see them. REMEMBER to leave your comment!!!!
