A Pinterest Obsession

So I haven't been on our blog in quite some time it appears.  Granted I have been very busy, back to work, back to school, and Ella has started preschool too.  With my limited time, unfortunately I have found a new obsession (not really unfortunate, b/c I love this website), Pinterest.com.  It's great, you can find any picture with links to any topic you could think of.  When you find the link you can add it to a virtual "pin" board.  I have created several boards from decorating the house, to crafts, to kid stuff, and of course recipes.  I have already used this to help plan meals for the week.  Here are a few of the great recipes and ideas that I have found and even tried some of.  You have to check this website out:
We made this using ranch instead of bleu cheese, and Baby Ray's buffalo sauce.  

I made this last night.  It was super easy.  I mixed all the ingredients in the crockpot and added frozen chicken. 6 hours later we had dinner. 

My mother in law makes these. Now I finally have the recipe!  Source: desertculinary.blogspot.com via Kelly on Pinterest  
I am going to make one of these to post all of my "pinned" recipes for the week.  Source: thestewartestate.blogspot.com via KellyPinterest on

And I will hang it on this, that I am already in the process of having cut by a local HVAC company.


P.S. You can search any of the pins and boards, but to make your own boards you have to apply for a pinterest account, but you'll get it much faster with an invite.  Let me know if you want one.  Happy Pinteresting!

Fertility Update

So I haven't posted in awhile about fertility treatments. I was thinking maybe I was jinxing myself, so I've been holding off.... And apparently for no reason.  We've undergone two IUI's since I posted last, with no good results from either.  On that note, I thought I would take a break from the Clomid and HCG for a couple of months and work on getting in shape to wear a bathing suit this summer.  Seriously I've put on like 15 lbs from all the hormones, and since I won't be sporting a baby belly this summer, I'd like it to be a little flatter and smaller.  Also since the IUI's haven't worked, the next step is to a fertility specialist and probably in vitro fertilization, which is a pretty penny.  So hopefully we can start saving for that, after we stop spending for the new house.  That's pretty much where we are now, just waiting.

Latest Fertility News

Wow, its been awhile since I got on here. I took the Christmas decorations down in the house a couple of days after New Year's, but I forgot about my blog decorations. Have to do some editing today.

So we took the month of December off from the IUI's because of the holidays, and because my active days happened to start on Christmas Eve, so no office open.  But we are even more excited about trying again.  So for January, I would normally go in  for the week of the 17th for ultrasounds.  However, our doctors are out of town for a conference and won't be back until Friday, so we will just go in on Friday and at least see how things look, if there's even a follicle.  So nothing exciting about January now, but maybe next month.

A Christmas Themed Weekend

This weekend we went to have breakfast with Santa at the Indiana State Museum, and ride the L.S. Ayres Christmas train.  ella and Ryder had so much fun.  This year was a little better with Santa, no tears this year.  After, we met Aunt Jessi and Aunt Renee at the Children's Museum and went through Jolly Days and saw Santa again, the second time went even better.
That's Ella on the left coming down by herself.

She dressed up like a penguin at the Polar Bears and Penguins exhibit and slid down on her belly like a penguin.

Is that a smile I see?

She even rode the reindeer on the carousel.

So shocked when she walked up to the polar bear on her own!

Our Thanksgiving Week

So our Thanksgiving week went off as a success. We started last weekend by going to Great Wolf Lodge with Joni, Ricky, and Ryder. Ella and Ryder loved the water, they were so cute.

The hotel was decorated like a giant lodge with stuffed animals everywhere

Ella got her wolf ears at dinner.

We played in the arcade after dinner.

After coming home, our tree had lost all of its leaves, so Jason and Ella raked them and played in them.
Wednesday, Jason and I started getting ready for our first Thanksgiving at our house by shopping early and setting the tables up the night before. I was pretty happy with how everything turned out. We had a lot of Jason's family over and a lot of great food. I think everyone had a really good time. Can't wait for next year!
I made the wreath about 3 weeks ago, the wheat stalks were much perkier then.

I found these leaf placemats at Bed Bath and Beyond for a steal, and the plates were super cheap too.

I purchased burlap at the local fabric store, and made it into a table runner and table cloth for the kids table.

I made the kids table with printables from: Shindig Parties.
