I love our Welcome mat. Its a little dirty, but dirt gives it character.

When I was taking this picture, I never really "looked" at it.  As I was choosing my photo of the day, this photo popped up and I was looking at it and studying it and I noticed there's a tiny American flag in there. I also didn't know what  the round things were and when I showed this picture to my sister Hillary, she pointed out that they were shotgun shells. Then I got to thinking...with the shotgun shells and the American flag, this picture tells a story. It reminds me of our Troops and the men and women who are fighting on the other side of the world to protect our freedom, and the men and women who die to protect our freedom. God Bless Our Troops. God Bless America.

My Mom, Hillary, and my new Sister in-law Kelsey. For the past few months, my sister Celeste and I were planning on surprising Hillary at her baby shower. As the months passed, more and more family members wanted to come. So, my Mom, Celeste, Kelsey and my other sister in-law Keeara all drove down from Utah Thursday night to surprise Hillary at breakfast at Dennys the next morning. The look on Hillary's face was priceless.  :)

Even though this tree looks dead, its still beautiful to me. I especially like the vibrant colors of the blue sky and the green grass. I like looking at this photo because it makes me think of life and how as we get older, we all change. Some days, I know we feel like we're crummy or depressed on the inside, but on the outside, we're all beautiful.  :)

Sad, Sad News!

Well, I had another OB/GYN appointment on Tuesday and apparently, I'm not pregnant. They said they're not sure if I had a miscarriage or if the first test they took was faulty. Either way, my doctor told me a week ago that I was pregnant and then finding out a week later that I wasn't, really put a damper on my day. I was so ready and so excited to finally become a mother. But I keep telling myself "Everything happens for a reason" (That's my life quote. When ever anything happens to me, good or bad, I just think to myself "Everything happens for a reason" It sure helps me get me through a lot of stuff). But then again, I am very sad and very disappointed. I cried and cried until I finally thought to myself "Everything happens for a reason". Maybe the Lord didn't think I was ready to be a mother, or didn't think Blake and I are both ready to be parents, or if the Lord was testing us. I don't know, but I do know that someday I will be a mother and I will be able to raise my children with love, compassion, patience and a tender heart. I just can't wait for that day to come.

Exciting News!!

So today was my check up with my OB/GYN to see how big the cyst on my right ovary was. They did an ultrasound and found out that the cyst was finally gone! What a relief. The cyst that I had ended up bursting inside of me and I had to go to the emergency room for all the pain I was having. My OB/GYN Doctor told me that when a cyst bursts inside of you, you feel like you're having contractions. Scary thought cause I was in a LOT of pain. Anywho, they told me I have to get blood work done before I go back in next month. Then I left. I was on the phone with my sister Hillary telling her how my appointment went when I got a phone call from my doctor (the one I was just with). She asked me if I was far away from the office and I told her no. She then told me to drive back to the office because she had news for me. So I turned around and went back. I got back in to the office and my doctor led me to one of the rooms and shut the door. The first thing she told me was "You're pregnant". I was in shock. I started to cry and she asked me if that was a good thing. I told her of course it was. I never thought I would ever hear those words. Considering Blake doesnt want kids for a long long long time. She calculated how far along I was, and as of today, I am 5 weeks and 5 days along in my pregnancy. YAY!!  Blake and me and Baby Shill makes three!!  Never been happier. :)
