Mini Blog Posts from This Week

*The Anniversary Invite

Josh and I keep track of everything on our calendars.  From our business appointments, to a party at a friend’s house, to reminders for when our dogs need their monthly flea meds.  We truly live by our calendars.  Sending each other Outlook invites is one of our ways of communication – if we send each other a calendar invite and the other “accepts” then we know that we are aware of the upcoming event and will be attending.  Its just a habit and it works very well for us.

I wanted to share the most recent meeting invite that Josh sent to me…Since our third anniversary is coming up in a few weeks, Josh made all of the arrangements and sent me the invite no differently…

dinner invite 

Isn’t he romantic??  I got an Outlook invite sent to me stating we are going to Charles Steakhouse for dinner for our anniversary.  Can’t wait!


* “License and Registration, please…”

We have probably all heard that line before.  

I got pulled over this week, BUT this cute little girl, Romie, totally got me out of my ticket!


As I was rushing off to drop the dogs off at the groomers, I had Romie in her carrier and buckled in to the passenger’s seat.  When I was pulled over (for going 20 mph over the speed limit), the cop came over to the passenger’s side to come talk to me.  She immediately got side tracked from what she was about to say when she saw Romie sitting there.  Instead of the typical… “Do you know how fast you were going…” speech, she said, “Awe, look at the puppy!”  She was petting her as she talked to me.  She ended up just giving me a warning!  I’m pretty sure I have Romie to thank for getting me out of that one! :)


*Dancing With The Stars!

I’m planning a trip to California!  I’ll be headed out there in a couple weeks to first see my sister and then to meet my friends, Devon & Erika!  It’s going to be a week full of fun girl time!  One of the highlights of the trip is that we are going to attend a live Dancing With The Stars show thanks to Erika’s hookups!!  I cannot wait!  I will definitely be blogging about my trip once I get back!

  6. You guys should switch to Google Calendars, what if one of your companies moves to **GASP** Lotus Notes?!?!?!

    Yeah Romie is pretty cute, you should keep her...and as for DWTS I'd rather go see The Price is Right, but to each his/her own. :)

  7. You guys are so cute with your technology! You'll have to let me know what you think of Charlies... I'm curious as to how their steaks compare to Berns.

    And who couldn't fall in love with sweet little Romes at first sight! I miss that gal lots!!

    That is SO cool that you'll get to see DWTS live!!! How lucky!!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
