Our anniversary

Time flies....we celebrated our second anniversary this weekend. We spent two days of complete peace and quiet in Park City. After the past month we have had all we wanted to do was relax. We stayed at The Hotel Park City and it was fabulous.

The front of the cottage we stayed in.

The best part...THE PRIVATE HOT TUB. We spent several hours out here. It is so fun to be in the warm hot tub when it is freezing out.

We had a wonderful time together. It is so nice to let the world stop, turn our phones off and just enjoy spending time together.


We had a non-traditional Thanksgiving this year. My friend Heather invited us to the bowling alley that her uncle runs in Tooele. We all bowled, ate and had a blast. I loved not having to cook a turkey.

Alexa is thankful

Do you ever wonder if your kids appreciate what you do? Alexa brought a project home from school today and this is what it said:

What I'm thankful for.....
I'm thankful for my family because we do fun stuff and we have F.H.E (family home evening) and scripture study. I'm also thankful for my house because it has our food and everything we need to survive. The last thing I am thankful for is my friends because they are there for me.

I am excited to say I officially gave notice at my job!

Yes this working girl of over 10 years is throwing in the towel. I am giddy at the idea of not having to be somewhere every morning, not having to worry about payroll, employee conflicts and numbers, numbers, numbers!!! I look forward to doing laundry at 11am, making dinner every day and cleaning house. I am not done working but I am done with stressful work. I have a great opportunity to work from home. I can basically set my schedule. I am so excited for a new adventure!!!

We have been waiting during the past week for the medications I took to induce my miscarriage. It didn't work and I started to get sick. My body basically thought I was 9 weeks pregnant. I was bloated and was having major swelling in my legs and feet. Last Friday I went to see my specialist and he indicated I would need a D and C asap! Not what I wanted to hear but I knew for my health it needed to be done. Unfortunatley because I was so far along I had to have the procedure at the hospital and be put under for it. I had the procedure done yesterday. All went well and I am feeling pretty good today. I am so thankful for my specialist. Can you believe the first thing he asked me yesterday was "How are you doing? I mean not how are you physically but how are you doing emotionally?". It is so nice to have a doctor that really understands not only physically what I am going through but even more importantly emotionally. We have felt so blessed to have this doc and his staff at this time in our lives. When I was leaving their office on Friday several of the nurses that I have built close relationships with stopped what they were doing to give me a hug and tell me it was all going to be okay. They have all added a little sunshine in these truly dark times!

You know who else is my kids! In honor of Thanksgiving I thought I would post a little Thanksgiving book Jonah brought home from school.

*If you could invite a famous person to Thanksgiving dinner, I would invite Micheal Jackson.
*If I could eat anything I wanted for Thanksgiving dinner, I would eat candy.
*If I could thank anyone in this world I would thank The Indians.

No in the mood!

Have you ever not been in the mood to blog?

It's been almost a month since I put something on our blog and honestly I don't know when I will have the desire to add something new and exciting!

To put things in to perspective.....we have been going through fertility treatments for 18 months and I am EXHAUSTED. This last go round I ended up having to take meds to induce a miscarriage(second miscarriage in two months). So between throwing up, some days taking up to 6 medications, giving myself shots, gaining tons of weight, feeling super moody, super emotional, tired, visiting the doctor countless times, numerous ultra sounds, invasive tests, feeling like my body has been taken over by aliens, the emotional roller coaster and peoples unbelievable comments....I am tired and have no desire to blog! But the funny thing is I feel guilty about not wanting to blog! Ridiculous I know!!!
