I spend a lot of time on thebump.com. There is a lot of good advice and people I can relate to on some of the message boards.
After 146 days of waiting and waiting and waiting, it’s finally here! Bring on round #5 of C.lomid. I’m not very optimistic that it will work on the first try but it would be nice if it would. I’ve already mapped it out on the calendar and found that Evan will be gone for our shot in November. I guess there’s always December and a month or two after that before deployment. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers please. I’m happy to be back in TTC mode again.

Hobbies are much easier to come up with than talents are for me. I’d write about baking but that was covered in my last post. My other main hobbies are reading and working out. I LOVE books. Evan made me get a library card a few years ago because we were spending too much money at Barnes and Noble. I just finished reading 2 books over the past 3 days. When a book is good, I can sit and devour the whole book in one sitting.
I don’t really have any talents – I have things that I’m good at though. According to my husband, I am a wonderful cook and baker. I wasn’t always handy in the kitchen but ever since we got married, I’ve become quite the chef and baker. I would love to take some cake decorating classes so I can make all my baked goods look pretty. Maybe that will be one of my deployment hobbies…
Evan and I got married in Lancaster, PA on December 16, 2006. I can’t believe that we’ll be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary in a few months. It’s crazy how time flies by so quickly.
We had a traditional church wedding in Evan’s childhood church. Our reception followed in downtown Lancaster. My best friend, Megan was my maid of honor. Evan’s sisters, Aubrey and my college roommate, Amy were my bridesmaids. Evan’s adopted sister, Rosie, was our flower girl. Evan’s best man was his high school best friend, Darin. Evan’s brother, Adam and Evan’s high school friend, Mike rounded out the bridal party. We preferred to keep the bridal party small since we were planning the wedding long distance. The bridesmaids wore beautiful, long red dresses and I wore a traditional white wedding dress with red accents.
I remember how warm it was on our special day. It was mid-December and it was around 65 degrees for the entire day. We took some nice pictures inside and outside of the church before taking a limo ride over to the reception site. Evan and I danced to “Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel for our first dance. The reception was wonderful – great food, great music, and of course great company.
The day and night flew by so I’m glad that we have so many pictures to remember it. 2 days later we left for our honeymoon – an Eastern Caribbean cruise.
