2nd Annual NYE Party!

This is the second year that we hosted a rockin’ New Years Eve party at our place.

This year we did a few things to make the party even more special.  First, when I sent out the evite, I asked all the guests to RSVP with a few of their favorite songs of 2010.  I made a rockin’ playlist that kept us going all night from a compilation of the songs people suggested and some of my party favorites.  As a party favor, I burned the playlist on CDs for everyone to take home with them.


I also put together a montage of pictures of the fun memories our group of friends made throughout 2010.  It was fun to watch the slideshow of pictures and laugh at all the fun times we’ve had.

This New Years Eve was definitely different than years past.  I got to have a sober view at all the usual shenanigans that occur.  Josh was so sweet to make me virgin drinks all night.  He made up all sorts of concoctions so that I could feel like part of the party!


My girls :)


It wouldn’t be New Years without a few potato guns!


It was great having my fellow prego buddy, Holly, at the party too!  That’s baby Jackson in her belly.  I can’t wait to meet her little guy in about 4 more weeks!


Here we are waiting for the ball drop!

Happy New Year!!!

    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.
