99 Followers – Almost 100

Who’s going to be the lucky 100th follower of my Dear Friend at “One day at a Time”?

One Day At A Time

Holy crap – one away from 100 followers.  How crazy is that?  I started this blog just to release some frustration with my infertility journey and it has become so much more.

I have met so many wonderful people on here and love the friendships I’ve made.  It’s been an amazing experience to share BFP’s, pregnancy and birth stories with so many of you!  I’m pretty sure I check wordpress more than facebook anymore to read everyone’s updates!

I’ve tried unsubscribing to the BabyCenter emails but it’s clearly not working since they kindly just reminded me I should be 14 weeks and starting my registry.  Thank you BabyCenter for reminding me I’m not pregnant but would be in my 2nd trimester if I hadn’t miscarried.  I appreciate it!

On a happier note, I am pretty much all packed up for Colorado.  I got the kitchen cleaned and mopped while the kids are sleeping so I don’t have to do it when we get back late Sunday night.  Just waiting for the kids to get picked up and J to get home from basketball practice and we are out of here!

Have a great weekend everyone!  I promise I finish up my last 2 days of the blogging challenge next week.  🙂

Lots of Love~Dawn


I have actual CM….now that probably doesn’t seem like a miracle to most of you…but my body very rarely produces CM on it’s own.  I had some yesterday morning, which happens once in a blue moon but then it’s done…just now, I had more!!!  I don’t know what’s going on but I like it and I will be attacking my husband tonight!  🙂

Days 28 & 29

Do I have regret?

Sure…there’s some things I regret, but if I changed them, would I have ended up in the same place I am right now?  I love where I am right now and I am totally in love with my husband so I can’t regret what brought me to him and what has made me the person I am today.

Do I collect anything?

Young Living products, lol.  That’s about it at the moment!  I used to be a big collector of things, especially in my childhood.  Rocking horses and piggy banks when I was a teenager.  Shot glasses  and children’s books as an adult.  I have now gotten rid of almost everything in my collections except for my children’s books.  I still have all of those and with daycare, that collection came in handy.  🙂


Okay guys…I totally got stuck on Day 26 of the Blogging challenge.

What quote do I live by?  Honestly, I don’t.  And why I didn’t just write that a good 5 or 6 or 7 days ago when I hit that question, I have no idea!

I hear quotes and I think they’re great, but there’s not really one I keep in mind to live my life by.  At this point in my life, I just try to be kind, help people who need it when I can, and keep the drama out.

So there we go…I can finally move on from Day 26.

Day 27:  10 people I would have to dinner and Why?  And the dinner menu.

My Dad, Uncle Ray, Davage Mariage (my old boss…he thought every one’s middle name was Marie and he always called me Dawnage Mariage so I started called him it back with his name, God I miss that man!), both sets of Grandparents, Barack Obama, My Mom, and My Aunt Dolly.   I would invite the first 7 because they’ve all passed and I would love to see them again. I would invite Barack Obama because I think he’s an Amazing President who’s done the best he can with a congress that can’t get along.  I would invite my Mom and Aunt Dolly so they could see those that have passed again.  🙂

Our Dinner Menu:   My Mom’s pork chops, mashed potatoes, corn and dinner rolls.

I will continue you on with rest of the challenge tomorrow.  🙂  Have a great weekend!!!


Quick Update

I just sent J off to the adoption agency with a bunch of paperwork and our initial fee (the smallest one, lol)!  There’s still a ton of paperwork left to do, but a little weight has been lifted for now.  We’re heading to Colorado next weekend and it’s a 12 hour drive so I’m hoping to work on all the questions we have to answer then.  Hopefully, typing our answers on the computer won’t give me car sickness like reading does!

Oh, and I swear I’ll get back to answering the blogging challenge questions soon, lol.

For those who believe in the power of Prayer.

Please send prayers and good energy out to Hayley’s SIL, Karie! She’s had a huge battle to deal with and much more to come!!!

Where's my two pink lines??

This evening my post will have nothing to do with my struggle to become a mommy. Although failing to conceive the last 13 months has been stressful for my husband and I, there is something far more heavy weighing on our hearts. {Cancer}


August 14, 2014 – My sister in law (Brad’s only sibling) was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer. Completely out of the blue .. it started out as a pain in her back and hip, she simply thought she had hurt/strained something excercising. Fast forward through the next few weeks; multiple doctors/chiropractor visits and x-rays, no one could seem to find the cause, then came the two MRIs. The result was nothing we could ever fathom, a seemingly healthy 31 year old woman with Breast Cancer, later we would find out stage 4. The pain she was experiencing was due to cancer in her bones; her spine…
