Yeah...So I Guess I Need Help to Get Through My Day....


I ordered one of these today at lunch without really thinking that has caffeine in it.

I have been trying to be really good and avoid all of the things on the list that helps bake the healthiest baby possible.

So I have been EXHAUSTED!

It's amazing how long a caffeine buzz can last when you haven't had any for about 7 weeks.'s not so pretty.

But right now I am trying to take advantage of the little "buzz" that I have left to scrapbook.

It's 10PM and I'm Still Awake!


I doubt I will make it much longer but thought the moment deserved some celebrating!

Thank you sooooooooo much for all of your sweet comments!
I wish I could say that I have been way to busy to post because I have been filling my days with awesomeness but alas...I've been mostly asleep.
I don't remember being this tired when I was pregnant with Colin but I may have been too busy going to Denny's to eat way more than I should that maybe I just didn't notice.

To answer a few questions...yes we've told Colin.
He would like to name the baby Vegas.
We told him we would think about it. *cough...cough*
He is super excited and tells us that he knows that the baby is a girl.

Yes we plan on finding out...we are not patient people. :-)

And yep we had to do the same stuff (infertility) to get pregnant with this baby as we did to get pregnant with Colin. We are thrilled that it seemed much easier this time and we're extremely appreciative to have options.

We are due in October and I should hopefully be cute pregnant during our trip to Disney in May. (I have tons of ideas for really cute maternity Disney shirts)

And I did totally say that I was NEVER going to do this again. I figured that there was no way that I would make it through the treatment and definitely no way that I would make it through the first trimester sleepiness. Who would pick up my slack???

Well I guess they really mean it when they say NEVER SAY NEVER because it seems my mind was changed a few months ago and I have NO IDEA what changed it or why I changed it in the moment that I did. The only thing that I can think of is that this baby must have a special purpose on this Earth because someone was whispering, okay probably yelling, in my ear and I guess I finally was able to listen.

And Matt's not doing too bad of a job filling in for me while I nap :-)

And because no post is complete without a photo...

This went up on the Collage Press blog last week. I would've posted this sooner but please see earlier paragraph about me sleeping.

I used the way cute Label Memory Block Stamp from Scrapping Bella to shape my pattern paper around my photo. I just stamped the image on the side I didn't want to use and then cut it out. A great way to get a little more mileage out of your stamps!

Okay I'm officially wiped! If I owe you an email please know that I am working on it and hope to soon return to my get a million things done, hardly need any sleep, funny, witty, creative self soon!

So I Picked An Absolutely Wonderful Time To Be...


If you tilt your head while you look at the computer screen you can almost see a line :-) This photo is from last weekend when Matt and I spent the entire time arguing whether or not there was a line in the 15 tests that I took.

Don't worry I have had it confirmed with bloodwork, (I of course was right)...just in time to get out of shoveling the 18 inches of snowed that is in our driveway.

Totally awesome perk by the way.

So I'm am snuggled up and warm praying that our fresh little Faust bean continues to stick :-)

And doing a little Disney fabric shopping for the nursery.

To say that we are thrilled and excited would be the understatement of the year.

So that's my news :-)

When In Doubt....

Use a sketch!
I haven't had the energy to scrap in a few days so I packed my stuff and headed to my LSS in Hershey to spend a few hours with my paper and glue.

So I could limit what I took with me I decided that I would participate in the Sketch Challenge on the Studio Calico Blog. Armed with sketch in hand, I picked my photos and product and loaded up my mini van.

Didn't realize that I was that cool to drive a mini van huh?

Anyway here is the product of that session for your enjoyment as well as a little enabling :-)


To make my scallop circle embellishments I used this stamp from Scrapping Bella.

After stamping them onto cardstock I used my scallop circle punch to make cute little text blocks.

I'm not sure what the vanilla cardstock is all about but I LOVE the color combo!

That's it for now and I will be posting soon with HUGE, I mean REALLY HUGE news!
