Life Lately...



You guys, I’ve been such a bad blogger and I am so sorry, but sometimes that thing called life gets in the way, or more like is way too amazing at the moment to have time to blog.  We have been moving and settling into our house and it has been so amazing.  We’ve had a little cookout with friends, we’ve gotten the guest bedroom assembled, we’ve got our master bathroom practically complete, I’ve got some décor on the walls,.  It has been so much fun finding places for knickknacks and photos and all the pieces old and new that we’ve collected.  I’m really enjoying putting it all together and making our house a home.





I bought a Fitbit last week and it’s definitely my new current obsession.  I’m pretty competitive and goal oriented so when it says “your goal is 10,000 steps a day” then that is my goal and I will do whatever it takes to get it.  I’ve also got some uber competitive friends who I’m in challenges with and it’s been a lot of fun so far. 

My yoga practice is still going strong!  If you guys follow me on Instagram then you see my posts every couple days of the poses that I’ve been working on.  I am also going to be taking a Tai Chi Meditation class on Monday’s at the Hegler Carus Mansion here in town, they will have the class on the lawn of the mansion and I can’t wait to try it!  It’s taught by the same instructor who teaches the yoga class I take at the local community college and I really enjoy him so I’m really looking forward to this class.


On the infertility forefront, we are 3 weeks from baseline.  I got my meds Thursday so we are prepped and ready for takeoff!  It’s coming up so quickly I just can’t believe how fast the time is flying!  I can’t say enough about how important it is to continue to keep living life when you’re waiting for a cycle to start.  That’s the biggest challenge of infertility treatment, the time it takes for things to happen.  We can easily get caught up in counting down the days which can easily cause frustration.  My best advice is to just focus on the present moment.  Enjoy the current season of your life, don’t wish the time away, enjoy it for what it is.  That’s what I’ve been doing exponentially these last few months and I have never felt so stress-free going into a cycle.  I am blessed to have the distraction of my house, but if I didn’t have that I would find something else to occupy my mind while the months passed.  It’s been roughly 9 months since we’ve had a cycle and it’s been over 3 that we have been waiting for this one to start and it’s really hard to believe that THAT MUCH time has passed. 

Other than that, we've had TONS of rain here but we did end up with one day of beautiful weather and abundant sunshine so I took advantage of that to swim at my aunts.  Also looking forward to our first house guest this weekend, my cousin will be staying with us.  Father's Day is Sunday and we're having my mom and step dad and Joe's parents out for dinner and Joe's birthday is Monday so we are going to do some celebrating this weekend!  So excited for all we have going on this weekend!


I am sorry to say but I imagine the blog will continue to be a little desolate as we continue to bask in our forever home and all that summer has to offer us over these next couple of weeks!  Hope you're all enjoying your summers so far!

  2. do you boo! Summer time calls for celebration and who cares if you don't blog?! Life is so much more than blogging. Sure it's nice to catch up and write if and when you can, but it's not your whole life. You've been doing great and three weeks will be here before you know it! Happy weekend!
