Life Lately...

My, my, my...where has the time gone?!?!?  I have been a super lazy blogger because my life hasn't been all that great!  We have had some tough times this summer, but God is getting us through.  So here I am today to start blogging again, hopefully!  My sister, Jessica over at Can't be this fat forever and I have started Whole30.  We are on Day 8 and feeling amazing!!  This new "lifestyle" change hasn't been too bad.  There's no dairy, no sugar, no processed foods, no grains, no beans, and no soy...I will say that giving up cheese is something I have never done.  And I am doing okay.  We can't weigh for 30 days, but I think I am already losing.  And I am feeling pretty good!!  Jess asked me to start blogging again, so here I go! 

I will start off with what's been up with my little ol' hubby and me!  At the end of last summer, I started the Clomid Challenge (I have PCOS and after being off the pill almost a year, we hadn't gotten pregnant) and after going through all the blood work and tests, 5 months is all I could handle.  So in January, we decided that would be our last month to take my Clomid and we would just see how things went.  I also saw an Endo Dr and started Metformin at the end of January.  February came and so did Aunt Flo....and we were devastated, but still had our plan!  So we decided to just "enjoy" our marriage and let it happen when it happened, unless we went 6 months without a pregnancy, then onto new doctors.  Well what do you know, April 29th, our lives were changed.  Jess had begged asked me to go home at lunch and take a test, mind you I wasn't even "late" according to my crazy cycle.  Well, since Nathan was home I decided to just take it.  Thinking, it's going to be negative and I will start tomorrow (that was what always happened), but what do you know...TWO lines came up.  I yelled for Nathan to come and see, we were both in shock with the biggest deer in headlight eyes possible, and were thinking "What have we done?!?!"  We were overjoyed with emotion and so happy that God had blessed us with a baby, we were FINALLY going to be the parents we were praying to be.  We called our parents and siblings right away, mainly because I can't hold that stuff in.  My mom and sisters are my very best friends, we had to tell.  Everyone was so excited and so were we. 

Everything was going good, I was getting more and more nauseated everyday.  That's always a good sign.  I had done the calculations and we were due January 1.  Well, I am an accountant and of course wanted to have the baby at the end of December, I mean, hello full year of tax deduction.  We went in for our first ultrasound May 19th and I was 7 weeks.  We were so excited to see our little baby.  When the tech started during the measurements, she said it looks like you are 6w2d.  My heart sank alittle and I looked over at Nathan.  We took our pictures of our little bean and were overjoyed.  We sent the pic out to family to let them know, there was only ONE!  So we met with our dr and she said she was comfortable with everything because she knew my ovulation schedule from the Clomid and we were to come back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound.  Well that day didn't come.  I had started bleeding the Friday before Memorial Day and I was put on bedrest until my appt on Monday, but God had different plans.  We ended up in the ER on Sunday morning and we had lost our precious baby.  It still breaks my heart that this happened to us, but I know that GOD has bigger and better plans for us.  It is very hard to write better, because how much better can you get than bringing a child into the world with the man you love the most.  Even though I didn't get to hold my baby, I am waiting for the day that I see her in Heaven. 

June 1st was the hardest day of my life.  That miscarriage was painful physically and emotionally, but we are doing much better.  I love my husband with all my heart and I am so blessed that I have such a caring and supportive man to stand by my side in good times and bad.  He is my rock and I love him more today than I ever have.  We have been able to start trying again this month and we are continuing to pray for what God has in store for us.  It is def bigger than we can imagine. 

I am so sorry if you were expecting something different, but being able to talk about it has gotten me through it.  I truly believe that God wants me to share my experience to let others know, we aren't alone.    Feel free to email me any questions you may have.

Losing Weight is a hard thing...


I have got to finally lose all this weight before I become a big fat blob!  YUCK! 

I have been trying to eat good and started 30 Day Shred.  It is so hard to want to work out when my husband is fine with not working out.  I can find an excuse to get out of it!

Oh where does the time go?

I tried to write a post on Monday for a Weekend Update, but it didn't let me.  Boo!  So I will just write some rambling today!! 

My MIL and I are starting a refurb business called Uniquely R's (the R is for our last name) and we have been getting quite busy crafting and making things pretty! 

So as you can see, busy little working bees.  Note, we both have full time Accounting jobs so this is work done on evenings (late in the evenings) and on the weekends we don't have stuff out of town, which is rare for us!

I am really loving all of it.  Now we are almost ready to sell!!

ItWorks, because it really does!

So I have a tendency to take on alot of outside activities, it is a part of who I am!  I love being on the go all the time, not too much of a home body, and I have a problem saying no like making people happy.  So I was asked by some friends to try ItWorks Wraps, you know that crazy wrap thing.  Well, let me tell you....they are AH-MAZING!  They really do work and I signed up to be a Distributor.  I have been selling for almost a month and it isn't easy.  Man, it is some hard work helping people understand that they TRULY do work!  They are all great products.  We have wraps, defining gel, supplements for weight loss, the greens (I love this product, it gives me so much energy) and supplements for menopause and so much more.  I am working on getting my four loyal customers.  It is totally free to be a loyal customer, you just have to have an autoship for atleast 3 months!  If you are interested, please feel free to visit my website and sign up today!  I would love for everyone to start wrappin!  You can email me any questions or contact me through my website and I will get right back to you!  Now you wanna see some pics to prove it works??  Here you go!

This is after ONE wrap, she still has 3 more in her box of 4!  Loyal customers get a box of 4 for $59.

 This is 3 wraps, one left in box!  Amazing results!
This is after using the fit pack! 

So when can I start wrapping you???

Be Blessed!

Memorial Day Weekend

Well I, like everyone else, am bummed to be back to work after my lovely 3 day weekend!  However, I only have to work 3 days this week and then I have another 3 day weekend....FULL of shopping in Canton, TX for First Monday Trade Days!  If you don't know what it is, google it and make your plans to attend! It's amazballs!!!

And now onto my weekend!

Friday night was spent having dinner with the in-laws then ran out to the Hard Rock to see my sister's family on their pitstop to Branson, MO!  I can't wait until we go at the end of June! YaY!!  We headed home around 9:30 to get ready for bed and pack for our overnight stay!

Saturday morning, we headed to OKC for a day full of baseball and catching up with friends!  It was a beautiful day to spend time seeing my brother-in-law as he worked the camera for the Big12 baseball tourny, of course we had to watch OU vs KState...Go KState!! haha  I kid I kid, no but really I have an extremely hard time rooting for the Cheaters Sooners!  So I just keep my mouth shut, as you all know my better half and his mom are OU Alum.  Atleast they graduated from there! 

Then we headed to Stillwater to spend the night with Little C and Special K!  C was putting on my fake nails and needed help...such a diva I tell ya!

Sunday, we slept in and went to late church.  The message was very moving and I didn't have any eye makeup on when we left.  We are Oklahoma Strong!  Keep praying for the tornado victims and they start the clean-up process.  Then we headed to IHop and had some breakfast/lunch, then did some shopping.  Then we had a cookout at a friend's parents and headed home around 8:30p. 

Monday, we got up and around.  I went to the store and got some food to take to the in-laws for their cookout and Nathan mowed our overgrown from rain lawn.  Finally, the house looks good again!  We ate and enjoyed family time, then home to tidy up the house and catch up on DVR!

Glorious weekend!

Hope you all had a blessed weekend!

Please lift Oklahoma up in your prayers!

As I am sure you have seen, Moore, OK took a very devastating hit from a F4/F5 tornado yesterday afternoon.  The aftermath is unreal and very heartbreaking.  An elementary school was hit hard and many children are missing still.  There is a blessing, over 100 people were rescued overnight and now on to a safe place.  Moore, OK was hit almost just as hard on May 3, 1999 and yesterday's tornado led almost the same path.  That is a very scary situation, some homes will be rebuilt that are only 14 years old.

Living in Oklahoma is a tough situation.  While I love being close to my family and friends, every spring we have to go through a very scary and destructive tornado season.  Oklahoma is a great state, full of caring people that will give you the shirt off their back if you need it, and that is what is so humbling about it.  The Big12 baseball tournment has been hosted in OKC since this weekend and the West Virigina team immediately tried to get to Moore to help with rescue, however, they were turned away.  Did they give up at that point? Nope, they drove to a Wal-Mart and loaded carts full of clothes for children and adults to donate.  Big hearts right there! 

Lord, I ask you to lay your healing hands on every soul in Moore, whether they were injured or have loved ones and friends hurt.  We need your Grace during this time.  Give us the strength to recover and more on with our hearts so hurt.  We ask that the families of the Plaza Towers elementary school be loved on, those children were taken away too soon.  We ask that you give them peace and comfort to know that those kids are in your arms. 

We will get through this and be stronger than ever!  Oklahoma is our HOME!

Be Blessed!
