That time I saw two lines

Just a few days after my last post i saw them.


July 10th 10:30 pm: Our cat had been missing for two weeks. Chris and I were about to head off to bed, when he's says "I'm going to go look outside one more time for Buddha (our cat)."

Sure enough our dissapearing cat was magically sleeping on top of our car in the driveway.  We were shocked! So we decided to let him inside and keep him inside.  He's a old guy and its hot so it needed to be done.

July 10th 11:00 pm:  Chris gets dressed and heads off to Walmart to get everything we need to have an inside cat again.

That day I had been feeling, off.  I couldn't really put my finger on what.  i thought i was coming down with a head cold. I had a headache for most of the day and it was getting worse as the day went on.  I hardly ever get headaches and if i do they are never as intense as the one i had.

When Chris left to go to the store he gave me a good bye kiss and the usual good bye boob grab, (husbands man).  Right at that moment the gears in my brain started moving. I took a mental list of my symptoms, feeling weird, headache, now sore boobs. uh oh.  It takes me about 10 minutes to process what is happening.

I finally call Chris hoping he's still at the store and we have the following conversation

Me: hey i thought of something that i'd like for you to pick up while you're there.
Chris: sure, what is it?
m: well....uh....only if you feel comfortable buying this...uhhh...could you pick up a pregnancy test?
c: really? uhh, yeah. where are they at?
m: in the isle next to the things that prevent you from buying a pregnancy test.
c:  which one do you need there are so many
m: the cheapest.
c: all right got it, be home soon.

later on he tells me that while he was in line buying cat stuff, and a pregnancy test, he was in front of a bunch of teenage girls and he wanted to say something about how this could be your life, or something to that affect. :)

Moving on.

Everyone knows that the best time to take a pregnancy test is first thing in the morning.  So we went to bed and I slept really great considering that fact that in the morning our family could possibly be adding another to it.

July 11, 6:00 am: Morning came, i took the test, and then waited for the result.

I honestly was expecting it to be negative.  Never did another baby cross my mind at all, but for this stories sake it was indeed positive, those two blue lines showed up and i just stared at it.  I walked over to Chris and i can't really remember what I said cause i was still in a daze, but i said something like "hey so, yeah, its positive".



Chris immediately starting thinking of baby names, cause he have zero this time around. We have a good list for both so we'll see what we eventually settle on.

Fast forward a couple weeks.  I was put on a pelvic bed rest.  It was the worst. Basically anything that has to do with movement with the pelvic area was off limits....so i just laid around for a few weeks sick, and bored, till things cleared up. Seriously, so boring and you don't realize how many things you actually do until you can't do them.

August 20th 10:30 am: doctors appointment.  It was time to see what or if anything was growing inside me. I wasn't expecting anything to be there, probably because the fact that we are having another baby hadn't quite sunk in all the way yet. I don't know what i was thinking.  I wanted there to be a baby, but i guess i would have been okay if there wasn't. It was just weird.

Ultrasound starts and right away there is the tiny little bean with a beating heart.  That is the moment i finally was like "Okay this is happening." I smiled and watched as the Doctor measured and just had a feeling of peace and love for this little one.


And that folks is the story of how my pregnancy with our fourth little precious baby started.

Summer days{4}


Well let me see what we've got going on here. 

This past week was a pretty chill week.  Even with 4th of July festivities happening.

We spend the holiday in Sedona, Az


We've been quite a few times and we were just ready to sit and do nothing.  It was so nice and chill.  We got in Thursday night about 9, when to the local thrift shop on Friday and enjoyed the cooler weather and the summer storms that rolled in, in the afternoon. We swam Saturday morning and left that afternoon to head home so we'd be home before fireworks and events in the valley started. It was super chill and a nice little break for the weekend. 




Evelyn saw on the resort map a labyrinth on it so when we were coming back from shopping we stopped to take a look. It wasn't what Evelyn thought it was going to be (i think she was looking for a more grand maze) but her and Amelia had fun walking around the little maze.




The last few days have been me trying to convince the kids to come to the store with me so i can finish school shopping for them.  It hasn't gone over too well.  I even told them we'd go to Target, they didn't by into it.  We only have about a week left of summer vacation and then school is back in session. 

We were going to be on our summer California adventure this next week, but had to be canceled a few days ago.   Chris still has the week off so were going to try to make the best of the time we have together, at home and around town. 

Oh, and one last thing before i go...


I came across this "Free life-a-day" declaration made by Evelyn.  I asked her about it and she said its like the declaration but just for kids and that for a whole day kids can do whatever they want. 

I gave her praise for thinking of something so creative and for thinking of freedoms and rights.  We talked about the Declaration of Independence and she knew quite a bit about it already. It was a great teaching moment for the both of us. 

Hope everyone had an amazing Independence Day and celebrated their freedoms we are so blessed to have. 

Have a wonderful rest of your week! 

Thanks for stopping by.

I tried to outsmart a pinterest recipe



Chris came home from work Monday night all excited saying that he was going to be making a dessert that he found online.  I told him i would let him make it himself.  About 5 minutes in i basically took over.  I can't help it, but that's pretty much how everything went horribly wrong.

You've seen pinterest fails before, I'm sure of it. Well i thought i would be smarter than the pinterest recipe and change things up a bit and not follow the recipe exactly and well it didn't go so well.


Here is the original recipe: Homemade Little Debbie star crunch-no bake

It seems like a super simple recipe with super simple instructions. I'll go with what we did wrong.


  • We only have salted butter.  Eh, I'm sure that will be fine, through it in!  
  • I know what i'm doing honey, this doesn't need to be microwaved this long. 
  • It would go faster if we didn't make them into disks and we just flattened them into bars
  • We'll just put them in the fridge for a few minutes and let them cool and then put the chocolate on
It was basically an avalanche of i know better then this recipe.  

They ended up being bricks!  Giant, tooth chipping, yet extremely tasty, bricks! 







I mean once we sawed out a piece, then successfully taken a bite, then were able to chew on the piece for a bit, it got chewy and it actually tasted really good! 

It was an unfortunate series of mishaps that lead to our brick homemade star crunch krispies.  

I vow now to try again and follow the recipe EXACTLY.  Its gonna bother me until i figure out if this yummy recipe can actually be replicated successfully. 

Wish us luck!
