Happy Halloween and a little surprise.......

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Halloween. I also want to share some news with you. Drum roll please.......... I am pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 14 weeks and so far everything is looking good. I can't even begin to tell you all what my husband and I have been through in the last 5 years trying to get pregnant. 4 years of every fertility treatment known to man multiple times seriously including our last resort which was a donor egg and through all of that not even one positive pregnancy test. The doctors couldn't find anything wrong with either one of us but just said we were in that 20% of unexplained infertility. So after we had tried everything and there was nothing else to try we continued to try on our own. Last year we got pregnant for the first time on our own and couldn't believe how excited we were until my 12 week appointment when the doctor said there was no heartbeat. I think you could imagine the devastation we felt. Well we didn't give up and we got pregnant again and things this time are looking really good. These last 3 months I have been so sick I can't believe it. It got so bad the doctor had to give me some medication. But if we get our baby in the end all that sickness is well worth it. This week I have started to feel better. So now that the cat is out of the bag this is why I haven't been blogging very much. I didn't feel like doing much that is for sure. I hope to blog more now that slowly but surely I am feeling better. Please keep us in your prayers. I don't think I will relax until I am holding our baby in our arms.
Happy Halloween :-)

Home again

Hi all,

We are back. Hope you all haven't forgotten about me. We did have lots to do around the house this trip but we did manage to have some fun and headed to Myrtle Beach, SC for a few days. Here is the view from our room as we walked in. We were on the 10th floor it was heaven.

The view from the balcony.

Just 2 of the many pools the hotel has.

O.K. this hotel was for you Nautical by Nature. Look at the carpet in the hallways. My husband was wondering why I was taking pictures of the carpet and I told him I have to show Nautical by Nature (tee-hee).

Oh and you would love the lobby and all the anchor furniture.

Don't ya just love that anchor fabric. I so wanted to take it all home with me.

A morning sunrise that we caught.

A picture of the hotel from the beach.

We also stopped and had lunch at Margaritaville!! This is at an outdoor shopping area called Broadway at the Beach. It was super yummy.

While I was hitting a few shops at Barefoot Landing (another shopping area) this is what hubs found. It is huge. We couldn't believe it.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures. I have more news to tell you but I will save it for my next post. I hope you all are enjoying October. Sorry I have been MIA. I really hope to be better going forward.

Off for a little R & R

Hi all,

Thank heavens I thought today would never get here. We are off for a little vacation and are leaving today. The hubs and I have been so busy with work we both need a little break away. Off to check on the house in NC and hopefully can squeeze in a little beach trip to Myrtle Beach, SC. Have a great weekend all. I hope to be a better blogger when I return.

Off to Michigan

We are off to Michigan tomorrow to celebrate my parents 60th wedding anniversary!! Yes 60th. I am so proud of them. I am the youngest of 5 and my parents were in their 40's by the time my sister and I came along. Kinda crazy back then but pretty common today. My sister and I are always telling them having us last 2 kids so late is what has kept them so young :-) Funny but they actually agree with us. My parents are the two best parents anyone could ever ask for. They have always been such great roll models my whole life and such wonderful roll models on how a marriage should work. Happy 60th Mom & Dad we love you both so much!!

Have a great weekend all :-)
