Our builder told us that our house would be 95% done by tomorrow
and he was right on! 
Man, It feels like yesterday they put up the markers on the land.

So if I still have any followers that aren't annoyed by house pics
we are almost there :)

Lots and lots of pics today.......

One of my main requests when building was that I wanted a Black door and Black Shutters

Carpet should be installed in the next few days :)

The boys assessing the situation hahaha

I love my little love dumplin nephews!!

Getting there!

                     Ok so I have nothing really important to say other than a house update of course!
I lost my battery charger to my 5D so I have been using my point and shoot more.
Like I said before I like it and its handy but nothing beats 5D pics.

So the update is going to be some shotty pic work :)

Some little stinker cut his own hair so he got a buzz cut :) and a busted lip at Daycare, but still the cutest little stinker I've ever seen!

I got the fever....

Ok I have had the fever for a long long long long time
Just sometimes it is worse than others
Baby Fever that is.

I'm talking the kind that you feel when you see/hear/hold a baby
the kind that totally consumes your thoughts, ideas and goals in life
the kind that is staring you in the face every time you look in the mirror

I know I have talked about this before
actually lots of times
I try to keep quiet about it
I try to stay positive
but it always finds its way into my conversations
I actually feel bad about it at times, it just comes out

At this point I'm not sure what to even think anymore.
I laugh, I cry, I scream
It gets better for a short time and then it comes rushing back
worse than before

I have always wanted kids
lots of them, I mean like 5!
But after all this time of meds, tests, trying and upsets
1 will do, seriously, just 1!
That's all I ask and pray.

So until that time I will keep wishing and waiting.
Praying and Hoping.

I am so thankful for so so so many things
I am looking forward to so many wonderful things in our life
but sometimes it just feels good to vent.

Surprise Parties = Panic Attacks

SO I don't like to keep secrets and I hate lying even more.
Even if it is a good thing.  It's still hard.

Although my brother and I were the typical fighting all the time,
tattling on each other, and disagreeing on every level when we were younger.
We are great friends now.  I am pretty sure he would help me out no matter what I needed.
And I would do the same for him.

My SIL asked me to help her out throwing Loren a Surprise 30th.
Me= Hells Yes!!
I love parties and planning.
So we got to work and had the best surprise everrrrrrrrrrr!
It was sooo hard and stressful to keep it secret.

Thanks to everyone that came and helped in the ordeal.
Your all Rockstars :)

Love you Big Brother and glad you liked your party!

Hubs told him he was going to play poker with the Docs from the ER.
hahaha his face was priceless

Happy 30th!!

House Update in Pictures!!!

So I have found a new love for my point and shoot.  I have figured out how I can shoot in manual on it and get decent pics and not have to lug around my 5D Mark II.

All the floors need cleaned so this pic doesn't do it justice.  I love our foyer tilework!

The neat sky tonight

We are so pumped!!! We had to take a pic in our garage :)
