Hey guys. LOOK AT LITTLE ESAH!!! She was so little. I could cry.

It’s 10:30 pm and Esah is going to sleep finally. We had pancakes, Esah and Scotty played minute-to-win-it with crackers, then we did their ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Now we’re all exhausted and ready for school in the morning. I love these two so much.

Sweating balls after a 4-mile walk in triple digits. Seriously this 100-110 degree weather in the Midwest is KILLER! The humidity makes it ten times worse. But hey, I got my butt up and that’s more than I’ve done in a while. Tomorrow is going to be strength training. Bring it on. 

Go me.

I will never trust a person who tells me not to eat raw cookie dough.

All I ask in a friend is that they workout with me when I ask, never back out on plans, eat too much pizza while cuddling under a blanket on the couch while having Harry Potter marathons, and not like all the same people I don’t like. Is that so much to ask?

Hi guys. I know I’ll kick myself for saying this later but school doesn’t seem that bad this semester. I’m already cringing thinking about how badly I’ve probably just jinxed myself. I’ve been on the search for possible internships and job openings in or around our area. Eh, I’m hopeful. 

Scotty and I have been dealing with a lot of drama on his family’s side. It doesn’t really have to do with us directly but it is effecting us. I married a very sensitive man ya’ll, a sensitive man who is also emotional and stubborn. This guy is so conflicted right now and so I’ve been trying to help ease the troubles any way that I can. (Whether it be by keeping him occupied with house stuff or bedroom activities ;) the man is staying busy). How, as a wife, do you calm a storm that has little to do with you? I ask my husband all the time how he’s feeling about the situation, what I can do to make things easier, or even if he just wants to vent. Whatever I’m doing, it seems to be the right thing. Family (our families anyhow) are either at a ‘very low-key, we’re not seeing each other’ side of the spectrum or the ‘we’re about to kill each other and crap just got real’ side of the spectrum. There is really no in between. 

I keep trying to call to make an appointment for Scotty to have his sperm analysis, only things keep happening. First he had to change doctors because he changed insurances, then he had a problem with his foot that he needed to go back to his podiatrist to look into, lastly I’ve called twice when they had stopped taking calls. Do you have any idea how annoying that is?! Oh well. I’m calling in about ten minutes so hopefully there are no interruptions with simply making an appointment. With that being said, my appointment had to change and I now go for a fertility treatment counsel on September 10th. I’m really just wanting to know more about my options and what I can do to get the ball rolling. 

Okay since I have an appointment to make, lunch to eat and terms to study I should probably do that. HAPPY TUESDAY! (and if you’re watching the PLL Finale tonight because you’re one of the cool kids. I’M TOTALLY LIVE TWEETING IT ON MY TWITTER!) 

XOXO

I was tagged by heykate, the-littlelady and jillynbrady to the “Last Photo On My Phone” thing. Thank you beautiful ladies. 
Introducing my husband and his relationship with our nephew. Oh my goodness, this would be the last photo on my phone. Haha. So last night, we went out to Olive Garden with my Brother-in-Law and his kids and the boys were acting a fool as Sophiya and I were polite little ladies. And by that I mean we were making faces in the mirror and eating all the mints! We’re mature. 
Also, I just realized it looks like Max has no legs in this photo. Hm. 
I now tag wishing-and-waiting-to-be-mommy, themorrelljourney, myonlysonshine and keelamommy85 What was your last photo ladies?

Scotty and I went to the drive-in tonight with his Brother and his family. Sophiya and Max played in the gravel through both movies! And then Sophiya and I chilled out because we were so exhausted. Max passed out after some booby milk. I love nights like tonight.

We’re so blessed and I couldn’t be happier than I am now.

I LOVE THE ER.

Tonight I’m helping in the ER and they asked for my help in Radiology. I was able to help with a transvaginal ultrasound for a woman 10 weeks pregnant. They allowed us to listen to the heart beat and I was just amazed the whole time. Wow.

Bam.

I was nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

I know what I’m doing tomorrow.
