This is the lovely lady who had the pleasure of 
draining all the blood in my body drawing my blood!
thank god she was a good nurse and called my RE
to see if should could double up some tubes 
or else I would have had 24 tubes drawn! 
Here we go!

Oh and I forgot to mention I had been fasting for 14 hours at this point

Little Miss Millie's Boutique


Little Miss Millie's is owned by me and my mother
the name is special to us. 
Scott's grandmother's name was Mildred everyone called her Millie
I never had the pleasure of meeting her though I wish I would have 
When we were pregnant for the third time, around 11 weeks 
we started tossing around name ideas, we have our boy name picked 
but we could never decide on a girls name... 
till one day we were laying on the couch making up names 
and all the sudden I said it and at that moment we both knew 
this would be the name of our future baby girl 
Pronounced (Mill-e-on-ah) we are not 100% on the spelling yet :)
 We would call her Millie
My mom and I have always wanted to start a business
with her being so amazingly talented and me the brains behind the business
we knew we just had to do it! We thew a lot of names around 
Little Miss Millie's won
So one day when we have our baby Millianna 
she will have a store named after her! 
We hope that you will enjoy the products as much as we enjoy making them! 

Addicted to POAS...(opk)


Thank you for all of your comments on my last post! I was 
so aggravated! and I agree with all of you that said trash the opks and 
just dance every other day! which I have been following those 
instructions except I have one small problem.. 
I am addicted to poas.. (peeing on a stick) 
I received this bad boy Sunday night! 
Sunday mornings test was almost there so so close! 
So Scott and I decided to go to Kings Island Amusement Park and see 
if we could shake my eggs up a little! bi-golly I think it worked! 
as soon as we got home from riding all of the crazy rides 
I ran to the bathroom and poas! 
The test line showed up super duper fast! 
Now, I am still going back and forth in my head at whether or not 
an actual egg was released! But I am going to stay positive and 
hope for the best! It's okay for a girl to dream right?
I mean wouldn't that be an awesome story?! 
Getting pregnant before my next round of fertility treatments?
We shall see! and What will be will be, I am not going to be 
all down in the dumps if it doesn't work I am just going to be 
excited and ready for our cycle with RE Dr. B to start!!

Not Surprising Really..(OPK)

So at the end of my last post I posted this picture of my

from calendar day 12 

and I told you that the way my past experiences have gone with 
OPK's are that if I am not in my O week I will get a plain white box
no line at all... So when I got this on CD 12 I was expecting to 
see darker lines each day, thinking that Friday should be my big day
(which It might still who knows) 
So yesterday I was out of OPKs and didnt realize it until 
after the cheepo store had closed... 
Today I picked up a few  headed home to test and this is what I got.. 

Bad picture quality I know.. 
But look how freaking faint that line is! I was shocked! 
It's not surprising really, that my body wouldn't do what it's supposed to do
or what is expected of it. 
But Come On Already! 
Now I can't decided if I should spend the 30 dollars and 
get the smiley faced one I had before or just wait it out 
and BD every other day till AF shows or hopefully doesn't.. 
I just don't know! AHHH 
I am officially back on the crazy train! 
All Aboard!

Mid July Already?!

This beautiful sky has to be a good sign :)
Another lovely weekend we had!
 Friday night we went and played 
Miniature golf with some friends
 I carried baby Logan on my chest, putted one handed 
and still beat the boys!~
Too bad no one got a picture of my skills! :( maybe next time! 
Here are Scott and Nathan 

Saturday Morning Mom and I hit the track at my old high School 
Then ate wedge salads! Look at the lettuce I am growing! I learned on Pinterest! 

And Saturday Night I met up with my Mother-in-Law 
and Sister-in Law for her birthday celebration 
We attended a cooking class at One Bistro! 
this business is truly amazing, they grow all there herbs out back
there moto is all neighbors eat 
All the servers are volunteers and the prices are only suggestions 
you pay what you can, to get a fresh meal. 
Its absolutely amazing to see the passion these people have 
for their business, I am very happy I was introduced to this new place. 
Here are a few pictures of the fabulous time we had!

It was so neat, It was like watching food live with a great 
group of girls and a few bottles of wine :) 

We ended the night at the wine bar across the street! 


On ttc news 
we are going the old fashioned route until we start 
the routine in October. 
So I have been charting and tracking
Friday and Saturday I was getting little twinges in my left ovary so
today I took an opk which has a line, meaning I am on my way 
to my surge. I will be tracking it all week, from my predictions 
it looks like Thursday or Friday will be the day
We will see :) why not try right? 
here is my OPK 
(opks for me when not in my surge week will show a blank white spot 
no line at all, when I am in my surge week the line will be faint and 
then continue to darken, I am guessing with the shade of this 
line we have about 4 to 6 days before I get a positive Opk)

So Did I tell you guys...

We are doing The Color Run!!! 
 Along with my Husband, Mom, Mother-in-law, Sister-in-law, brother-in-law
My Aunts, my cousin, and a few friends too!! 
To say that I cant wait is an understatement! 
I was up late one night Pinning stuff,
cause that's apparently my nightly routine now. 
and I came across this picture..which led me to the site..
which led me to create a team!
We are officially doing the Happiest 5k on the Planet! 
Our team name you ask?
50 Shades of Pink 
The race is Saturday October 6th 

I have exactly 2 Months 3 Weeks and 3 days to get my butt in shape! 
My wonderful In-laws donated me their treadmill and I am loving it! 
My little loves keeping me company while I "train" (I Love them so much)
Okay let me clear this up real quick!
I am NOT "Racing" like to see who wins track my time yatta yatta
Or at least not yet.
For now I have decided that I will be speed walking with my team
but I still want to get in better shape and this is GREAT motivation!
as well as this outfit that I am determined to wear
 Bahahah I am only kidding!!
But I would like to find a cute pair of white yoga pants to wear
since we will be blasted with color!

Oh ya I am also lifting weights on my lunch break :)
Look at these guns! lmao..

Moving on..
Scott and I gave Miss Waffle dog a much needed hair cut last night!
It wasn't easy, but it saved us a whopping $35!

Fun to be Had

No time to sit at home attached to the heating pad
when there is Fun to be Had! 
First of all..this is last weekend...But I LOVE these girls! 

We had!
  Onto this weekend..

AF showed her lovely face on July 4th..
July 5th I couldn't move, I stayed on the couch ALL day 
July 6th was not much better.. I figured when I woke up in the 
morning on the 7th it would have eased up but it seemed as though
 it got worse. The cramping is out of control holy. moly.
Today is is day 5! I am a 3 days and your done kinda girl..
Needless to say we didnt get to do much this weekend but rent movies 
lay around and eat new food creations from pin.terest :)
But today our friends talked us into going kayaking!
& we had a great time! I love the experience of Kayaking! 
a couple years ago we were on a kayaking kick, we went almost every weekend!
It was nice to get back on the water. The launch always makes me nervous 
but the guys are great at getting the ladies in first so it's not so bad. 
I love the rapids and the random trees to maneuver around 
I love the peacefulness and the hot sun beaming down, its just so relaxing 
Today I realized I also love the frazzled canoe couples yelling 
at each other and complaining about how much they currently hate life
They have not yet figured out that a kayak is the only way to travel down river! 
Canoe's while fun, take way WAY to much coordination..from both people.
and are much much harder to steer through rapids and around debris. 
So today I made sure to let every annoyed canoe'er know that next time 
the Kayak is the way to go :)

A Beautiful Day
Ready. Set. Launch.
Safety First
Catching up to the girls
Leaving the boys in my dust :)

Stop 1

Splashing around

Look at my muscles

My little rock hunter :)

Skippin Rocks On the River

Testing the rope swing...and the verdict is... Janky!

Ah fresh vitamin D!

Justin looking very "outdoorsie"

& I will leave you with a picture of my very first pair of 
Socks from my very first Fertility Sock Exchange! 

I know! Adorable right?! I CAN NOT WAIT to wear them!!!

Have a wonderful week!
