Monday Listicles.

So the topic this week is "10 WAYS YOU ARE THE SAME OR DIFFERENT THAN YOUR YOUNGER SELF." Well how about 5 of each?

1. I'm still self conscious about my feet. They aren't crazy looking or anything, I just have to make sure they are always painted, soft & clean. If they aren't presentable I hate it!

2. I still have to be showered & ready for the day before I leave the house or have anyone over.

3. I still dislike bananas. I'll eat banana flavored stuff just not a banana. 

4. I still love chocolate. It's an addiction. I could seriously live off cake when I was younger.

5. I hate scary movies. I still can't watch them. 

1. I'm more confident with myself. 

2. I stand up for myself. No more being bullied or pushed around. 

3. I wear yoga pants & leggings as often as I can.

4. I'm more outgoing. 

5. I actually eat a ton better. I may be addicted to chocolate, but I rarely have it. I make sure I'm taking care of my body.

Sunday Social: Let's Get Literary!

Sunday Social
 Lets get literary!
1. Favorite childhood book: 
For some reason, I was in love with the book The Chimney Witches.

I read it as often as I could, especially during the fall in elementary school.
I also loved The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs.

2 . Favorite Book lately
I've been reading SO many books lately. I have Goodreads to thank for that! I'm currently reading The Mortal Instruments Series. Pretty good. I read Betty White's If You Ask Me and that was a really good, quick read!
3. Book you wish you could live in
I haven't really read any mushy, or super happy books lately, more of mystery or Vampire type books, and I don't think I'd want to live in any of those! When I read though, I definitely can put myself into any story. Love it, one of my favorite things about reading.
4. If you could be any character from a book who would it be and why?
Ah! I always dread this question! I have no idea!!! My mind seriously goes blank & I can't think of anything. 
5. Favorite Book turned Movie?
The Notebook. I love that book! I like the movie too! 
6. Favorite Magazine
I don't read too many magazines, but I used to love Cosmo! I have a bunch downstairs, not sure why I'm keeping them. Ha. I also love Parents Magazine, super cute ideas in there!

Clomid Cycle #2

Hey friends! 

It's time for an update. Another cycle is just beginning, our second with Clomid. Seriously, when our plan was made for tlast cycle, I didn't think that it would work out. I figured that something so simple couldn't work. Then as each day started to pass, I would think "maybe this could happen" or "maybe I could be a mom to two" .  As soon as CD 24 hit, I didn't feel very optimistic anymore. My blood work came back fine, but that wasn't the cycle that I got pregnant. 

So now as I sit and wait for CD 10 to come, I start feeling optimistic again. Start thinking, "okay, I could have a July baby". I'd have a tiny little baby for my brother's wedding. Honestly, I don't know if the next cycle will work, but I still hope it does. If it doesn't we'll try again. We're not going to give up. 

I've gotten some emails over the last couple months, from people saying they found my blog and are going through a stage of TTC, something they didn't think they would have to do. They say "no one IRL knows". They don't know how to deal with the disappointments each failed cycle. Honestly, sometimes I used to wonder how I got through all the disappointments. It was hard. I let myself cry if I feel the need to. I let myself be a little jealous of the baby bumps. Let myself wonder "why?!" when I see another announcement on Facebook of an unplanned baby. Seriously people?! So many would give an arm and a leg and whatever else they could, to have an "unplanned pregnancy". 

You guys have been my support group. The place I turn to when I just don't know if I can deal with another failed cycle. When I first started blogging Ashley at Stealing Baby Kisses,(her blog is now private), was one of the first blogs I found. Her story is very different than mine, but I felt a connection. Someone that understood my want, or I guess I could say need to have a baby. She has also (without knowing) kept me trying to be positive through it all.

After that I started meeting more and more bloggers, quite a few that have become friends. People that don't necessarily live close by, but people that text me with pictures of positive pregnancy tests, birth announcements and so on. I know that most can't share their stories with IRL people, but I hope that if you're going through something you know that you're not alone. There are so many bloggers out here that are going through something, some could be just like you. 

We're here to support each other. I know that I can't help but think about each person that has emailed me, as every month passes. Hoping that their time comes soon. I've said it in emails before, but not on my blog but I need to. I'm here for people that need to talk. I know every journey is different but everyone needs a friend, everyone needs support. 

Hope all is well.

Wedded Bliss Wednesdays.

How often do you and your husband have a date night?
Not often enough. Since having A, we haven't really gone out without her. But once she's asleep we'll snuggle up on the couch and watch a show or two. 

What did you do on your first date?
We met up at Barnes & Noble for some Starbucks then decided to head to the theater where we watched Awake.
What is your favorite kind of date night?
The ones where we stay at home & just pick up a pizza & a movie. We like to keep it simple.

How do you do date night on a budget?
Pizza & a movie at home. Drives to see Christmas lights. Simple fun things like that.

What is the best kind of date your husband could surprise you with?
Dinner together at home. He would of course make dinner & have the house clean! Oh and some sort of chocolate dessert too! I meant it when I said we like to keep it simple!
