“Surgery”

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…   So, I had my hysteroscopy and polypectomy about a month ago. And what was supposed to be a very minor, 15 minute surgery that had less…

Results and More Testing

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…   The results of my testing came back with some really positive stuff, and some sort of strange stuff. The serious genetic conditions that run in…

Changing Lives

( featured image stolen from the LA Times ) I feel like everyone has this dream at some point in their lives that they want to make a difference and change lives. I also think that most of us eventually realize that while we can touch and change those around us, on a grand scale, […]…

Testing

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…   I don’t have a fitting photo for this, so you guys get the glory that is my bad drawing. Three weeks ago, I met with…

Loss

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…       Of everything in my life, this is easily the most difficult subject for me to speak about. And there is a lot in my…

Rockabilly Villians

This last weekend was a total blast. Saturday was spent cleaning, crocheting, sewing, and watching Netflix. On Saturday night, we took the kids to see A Dog’s Purpose. (Which will make you cry, and is really very good.) But, it was an excuse for me to get out of yoga pants and into something fun….

Karma Kreations (Outdoors)

In February of 2015, I was privileged enough to work with Karma Kreations twice. The first time was an elegant, boudoir type shoot. This second time was a much more natural, fun, me type of shoot. Which is actually really funny, because everyone always tells met that these photos are some of their favorites, as…

Too Cold to Ride

In case you’ve never met me, let me tell you an important fact about myself…I am a huge pansy when it comes to the cold. Seriously. If it is less than 75F outside, I am probably wearing at least a light jacket. And if it is less than 65F, I am complaining about how I…

Old Photos

Man oh man, as I go through these old photo shoots and tattoo photos, it is really blowing my mind! There is nothing quite like looking at a 2 year old picture of yourself to notice every bit of toning you’ve lost, every bit of weight you’ve gained, every new wrinkle, and every gray hair!…

Checking In

It has been cold and rainy out here! Flooding, road closures, fences collapsing, trees collapsing, total chaos. So, my life has mostly consisted of staying inside and trying to avoid becoming water logged. However, on Saturday morning, it was absolutely gorgeous! So, we took the kids out to IHOP and enjoyed some sunshine. The rest…

New Year, Similar Me

  I am not huge on resolutions. I think they are a bit ridiculous. Almost no one sticks to them. They are always the same. And in the end, very few people make a real change in their life. That being said, here are mine. 🙂 I’ll try and update each month on how I…

Ugly

Beauty is so many things. Beauty is 300lbs. Beauty is 80lbs. Beauty is white, it is black, it is yellow, it is tan, it is pale. Beauty is a smile. Beauty is laughter. Beauty is tall. Beauty is short. Beauty is strength. Beauty is confidence. Beauty is anxiety. Beauty is depression. Beauty is make up….
