Can I just start out saying that I love 2 things very much....my amazing husband and my love for the prospect of a new purse! ha!
We are taking a weekend away from it all and going outlet shopping! I am pretty excited! I know I will probably spend more money on my nieces and nephews than myself (I love Osh Kosh and outlets are the only place to get em cheap ;)
I am also very excited to spend alone time with my husband. With full time jobs and school, quality time is at a minimum right now. We love when we get any extra opportunity to hang out with each other.
So, a year has passed and it seems like it was yesterday we said our I dos. The actually anniversary isn't until Monday...but like I said with work and school, we will be "celebrating" a few days early. :)

So yesterday was mother's day. If you read my post below, I was pretty bummed. I went home early from work because I was feeling pretty sick, and I decided to go straight to my moms. Seeing my family helped ease my mind about the whole thing, but my mom kept bringing up my miscarriage! She meant well, but it still stung a bit. She was just telling me how proud she was that Travis and I want to make a stable loving home before we bring a baby into it, and how I was definitely a mom and she thinks I am going to make a great one. Then she gave me a mother's day gift...which I did not expect...a gift card for wal-mart for $50! Woo hoo!
On another note...Travis knew I was feeling down so he told me that he and the boys (our doggies) made me a present but I had to search for it. He told me they "discussed" that they wanted me to be surprised. I was tired and got home late, so I kinda forgot about it, but when I was going to bed, thats when I saw it on my nightstand. This is what I saw... (above)! He wrote them to make it look like the doggies did it and then he told me he took the dog's paw and the pen to make their "signature" and the hearts. I love this man! He is so creative and sooooo funny! I think I lost about 20 lbs from all the laughing and crying I did! I love him and our "boys"!!!

Mother's Day is tomorrow. I thankfully have to work. Why do I say this? Because this is the day I was supposed to be celebrating my first ever mother's day as a, well, real mom. I would have been 8 months exactly tomorrow. I would have been ready to pop. I would have gotten so many cute things for my little one, and would be just about to use them all. I would almost be a mommy.
I thought about this all day today. I broke down in the bathroom. I broke down to my husband. I broke down in a vacant guest room for crying out loud! I just do not know how I will get through tomorrow. Its days like this I go back to where I was....and when I was getting so far from that place. It brings me back to that day all over again when the mom title was taken from me. These are the days I dread.
Tomorrow, I will be happy. I will put on a happy face for my co-workers who are moms, a happy face for my sisters, and a big smiling face for my Grandma and Mom. But believe me...inside I will be dying.

This is Hayden, he'll be 4 soon!
This is Bailey, my 17 month old neice...
I love my niece and nephew. They seriously help my survive my hectic life. They are also my reason for the extreme baby fever I feel. I love those kids more than anything in the world. I spoil them too much, freak out like a mom when they are sick, and am usually the only one who can calm them down when they have their tantrums.
I get to babysit Bailey for 3 whole days on May 20th, while her mom and dad are on their "honeymoon" to Key West....only 5 years late ;)
I cannot wait. She lights up my and Dh's life. We adore this little girl. It will be so fun to play mom and dad for a couple of days! We cannot wait!
That will either help or hamper myself during the 2ww....we'll see :)
