Sunday snuggles

Today I accomplished a whole lot of nothing. Well maybe something. I did laundry, tons of homework, researched healthy recipes for the next few weeks meals, and snuggled. This cold crispy air makes me want a big cup of coffee, my leopard print slippers, and snuggles with these goofs.   

Both are rescues. My dog is a pit bull mix with a huge underbite and a love for Doritos and cat snuggles. I got him when I worked at animal control and he was about a week old and a bag of bones. Near death and rejected by his birth mother, I knew I had to take him home and try.  I bottle fed him and nursed him into a fat 60 pound couch potato. He loves his chihuahua brother and the cats. Total daddy’s boy unless he’s not feeling well. 

The naked creature peeking out of the warm comforter is Pascha. I waited my whole adult life to adopt a Sphynx cat. We got her when she was 5 and she’s about 10 years old now. Wow just realized she’s getting old! She hybernates all fall and winter in blankets and comes out in the summer to sit in the sun by the window. 

I’m definitely an adopter!! Working in animal control, my eyes were opened to the thousands upon thousands of animals that were euthanized daily because there are no homes and more coming in. People keep breeding or simply just not spay or neutering because they don’t care enough. I also have a Devon Rex cat. It’s a myth that you can’t find purebred animals in the shelter. I’ve seen so many different breeds!!! 

Anyway, I’m off to make dinner and back to snuggling. Love these lazy Sundays! Don’t you?

Pumpkin everything!!!!

  I wish we had pumpkins year round. I love the fall crisp air and pumpkins everywhere! Do you all have a favorite fall drink? I literally count the days for Starbucks pumpkin spice latte and stalk their Twitter. Stalk!!! I drink way too many and I don’t care. I get a soy pumpkin spice latte with whipped cream and mocha drizzle. Usually grande but definitely threw the barista off this morning with a venti. Hey , I was training a new person at work today and I needed my big latte! Ended up training two at once alone, which made Friday very interesting. My husband surprised me last night with pumpkin shaped Reese cups. He knows my weaknesses! I can’t wait until next weekend because we are going to the pumpkin patch with my family. Tomorrow we are going to dinner with friends and a haunted house. Can’t stinkin wait! 
I did my nails last night while waiting for he hub to come home from work. I am really liking this nude color from Red carpet manicure called fake bake. Added some sparkle on top because why not?

  

It’s like CD 50 something and still no period. Definitely not pregnant so why not show up you biotch?! Waiting until next week and then going in for blood work and an ultrasound to see where I am in my cycle and probably starting medication to make AF appear! December really can’t come soon enough so we can do our first iui. I smile just typing that!!!!

Being married last Halloween, I dreamt of being pregnant a little before Halloween this year and announcing it on our anniversary. We have tried but not tried for over a year and a half to conceive and now we are really buckling down. I did 3 rounds of unmonitored Clomid and the blood work showed that I did ovulate. Just didn’t get knocked up! Then recently we did two rounds of Femara and nothing. Follicles just weren’t growing. I also suffered from really bad side effects from the Femara and still have hand pains from it. So now we are taking a break due to hubs busy work schedule, since he travels a lot, and doing our first IUI in December. I can’t wait. I have never been so excited. Since I can remember, I knew deep down inside getting pregnant wasn’t going to be easy for me. I just knew it. Which is fine, just stinks. I knew we would be going towards IUI and maybe even IVF route. So here I am sharing our story and I hope you enjoy it. So fingers crossed that December gets here quick because I can’t freaking wait!!!! Any help, suggestions, recipes, spells, crystals, etc would be greatly appreciated. We are dealing with PCOS, hypothyroidism, endometriosis, and his semen analysis showed us he has low motility, but a great count.

PS – Met that cute little pony on our anniversary getaway this past weekend. So cute!! 😛
