littlemintarrows yeah, that’s the one.

And then I found nasty stuff at the bottom of my monster. This is what happens when you don’t listen to your mother kids.

Another day of volunteer work in the books. Oh my goodness, I’m so happy to be a part of this awesome group of kids! They make my heart so happy!

My best friend is in a really serious relationship for the past few years and will most likely be getting engaged and married soon (she is 20.) She spends all her time with her boyfriend, and it seems like they aren't even separate personalities anymore- just 1 person now. They never do anything apart. Is this normal of a young couple that's so serious? Or does it sound a little off to you?

It sounds normal to me. Everyone is different, I know a lot of couples this way and quite a few who aren’t. It depends, I don’t think you have a thing to worry about. The whole never being apart thing may slow down eventually but I don’t see anything that strikes me as “off” :)

Last night at work was crazy! It’s okay though, tonight is going to be good. That’s what I’m telling myself anyhow.

When I get off tomorrow morning I’m picking up my little cousin and taking her with me to volunteer with Miracle League again, I totally fell in love with it.

I hope everyone’s having a good start to the weekend. xoxo

I just wanted you to know I'm praying for you! I can only imagine how tough ttc can be, but I'm sure it'll be worth it. I can't wait to see the post saying you're pregnant. You and Scotty are gonna be the best parents and have the cutest babies! <3

Oh my goodness, thank you so much girl!

You, along with everyone who posted those sweet comments, are the reason I love the Internet so much! xoxo

Thank you for always being so positive. I know you're going through so much and you're a total BEAST being in school and working and being a lovely wife. Your positive attitude has really helped me to try to be more optimistic so thank you. Love you!

I freaking love you!

This was so sweet and made my day. You’re a good friend girl. xoxo

P.S. I still love your hair.

It was an innocent question, I wasn't being rude. I said it's likely I missed something you discussed before. You openly talk about your TTC and even started a go fund me page for it so I really didn't see why that would seem intrusive if you are that open about it all. Sorry if it did but it wasn't at all meant that way.

Hi anon. I apologize because you really did get the blunt end of my frustration and the frustration of my friends. Your question more so set off a whole other side of the spectrum. That is why I stated in my last post than anyone being genuine is highly appreciated! But it is hard to know a persons motive behind a gray face.

Just know that post was more for someone else and really not because of you or your question exactly.

Thanks for caring and for clarifying. xx

Where do you work?? You always say you have night shifts so I'm just trying to figure out what kind of industry you're in!

yes, I work at Mercy Hospital as a nurse’s aide. I actually love night shift but man, it wears on you. :)

FYI: TTC

I don’t like making posts like this, I rarely ever do. Some things just need to be said, ya know?

Scotty and I tried for a year and 6 months before taking a break from trying to conceive. We took this break because (1) we felt that maybe it wasn’t the right time for us, (2) I was in extremely hard to handle pain during menses and (3) I did not feel ready to dive into the world of infertility. Trying to conceive has lasted 5 more months and it was my doctors suggestion that I go back to him after month 3 of no conception. On top of having tried a year and a half, I have one aunt who it took 10 years to conceive her only child and another who could never conceive, she’s in her late 40s and has an adopted daughter. My aunt on my dad’s side also struggled with infertility and when she finally gave birth to my cousin (her only child), she had major health issues.

My family history, my own history and life itself have lead my husband and I down this road and now we are doing a sperm analysis to see if we can make sure we have no more factors to add to the equation. Afterwards I will have a surgery to see what there is or isn’t and go from there.

I don’t share much of my ttc journey here, however I post about it often on IG and/or YouTube. Some of you are genuinely curious and I appreciate you reaching out to me, but for those of you who have some stick up your butt about me trying to start a family…back the eff off. That is truly none of your business why or how or when or why I’m doing what I’m doing but I share because it makes things easier on me. I’ve kind of just sat back and watched for some time as certain people said whatever they pleased but I care so little about how you feel about my ttc journey. This is between me, my husband and God…and thankfully my friends and family care enough to support me.

So it’s been said. xx

There’s a reason I love my girls. Y’all are the bees knees.

I have probably missed something you have talked about before. Why are you already going through fertility testing after only a few months of trying? Most doctors wait a full year before they are concerned with fertility trouble.

It’s been over a year. A year and 11 months actually. I took a break because the pain I have and numerous other reasons. On top of that, my family on both my mom and dads sides have struggled with infertility. So my doc didn’t even care to wait for the 2 year mark, which I’m 100% okay with.

Thanks so much for your positivity lady :) you're the best, you really are! Hopefully I can find a nice maroon yarn to make you a scarf and it's not too expensive to send! :)

I freaking love you! xoxo

Oh college, at least you have coffee.

I had an 8 am exam that wasn’t all that bad and ate a delicious muffin, so it’s not such a bad day. I was so productive on my two hour break, completed three papers and studied. Go me.

How about y’all ask me stuff. I’ve got so much time to kill before work.

Scotty and I always get very different cups of froyo. My best friend joined us and we had a fun time.

On the way home Scotty ran in to grab toilet paper and came out with a movie for me. Have I mentioned I love this man? So I’m now watching this film again while studying.

Ah, life is good. xoxo
