Adventures of Tent Camping

Camping.  In my book, there is only one way to go and that is with a camper.  Some might call this “glamping” but I like to think of it as maintaining a females healthy, happy and balanced hormotional (hormones + emotions = Hormotional) level while she endures the great outdoors of spiders, snakes, and weird…

She’s My Little Piece of Jesus

“Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me and anyone who welcomes me, welcomes not only me but also the father who sent me.”  ~Mark 9:37 In January after we welcomed Goldilocks into our home, I made a chalkboard sign with Mark 9:37 written on it and proudly displayed it…

Your Church Sign Said What?

Do you ever feel like you sometimes just need a break from everything related to making a baby, wanting a baby, and thinking about a baby?  I’m feeling that way today and I’m not particularly in the mood to think infertile thoughts.  Therefore on this Monday morning, instead of poking fun and making jabs at…

Low Carb/Gluten Free Breakfast Balls

Mercy! I like balls. I like meatballs, cheese balls and how could anyone forget those heavenly cake balls. But, I have now found a new “ball” to add to my list. Breakfast balls.  These balls are low carb, gluten-free and so good! After I make a batch, I wrap them up in three’s and freeze.…

Twas the Night before Josiah Day

For the past six days I have been staring at one of these each morning… And so nearly every night for the past six nights, I have been doing this… and then afterwards this… (Gotta help the swimmers swim upstream right?) Never have I been so ready to see this… That’s right!  Today I finally…

I Am (not) a Face of Infertility

It was several months ago and a little past noon when I zoned in on the wedding picture that sat on my husband’s desk at work.  I couldn’t help but notice that the look in my eyes and the smile on my face was not the same look and smile that I was wearing.  It…

25 Signs You Are Trying to Conceive (Part One)

Laughing Your Way through Infertility:  1. When someone says they are “temping” and you don’t even consider they are talking about a part-time job. 2.
