For the past few months I have seriously lived the life of Riley, from the movie Inside Out, with all of the emotions I am experiencing. All the joy, sadness, fear, anger, and little disgust has me all over the place. Life for us right now is like Screaming California, at California Adventure. Things have been going so fast and aren’t slowing down anytime soon. We’ve had things come out of no where, we’ve had ups, we’ve had downs, and we’ve had some upside-downs.
Just to take a little trip down memory lane for some joy we had over Christmas. Scott and I were able to go to Virginia to spend a week with his family. It was so fun to be with everyone that made it out, and enjoy the simplicity of life away from home.
Who doesn’t love spending time playing with kids…they bring out the best of us, especially during the holidays.
We took a day-trip up to Washington DC, my first time there, and it was incredible. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to go and visit such special places.
The love everyone has for these cuties is unbelievable. Oreo and Lucy were the life of the party. Haha.
For New Years Eve, Scott and I were asked to go and help with the Youth Dance. It was a pretty easy thing to help out with, and we had so much fun getting to spend the time together. Made New Years Eve for us a little more eventful.
The new year came and it’s going faster and faster. We are both busy with work and all the other fun things we have going on. About a month ago, I was called to serve as the Young Women’s Camp Director for my ward. It is hard to believe how different Girls Camp is here in Utah, compared to what I grew up with in California. Regardless, it’s going to be so fun and I can’t wait to get the girls excited for the fun time we will have at camp. Here’s a look at what I’ve worked on so far…it’s really not much, but it’s a start.
Now, onto what has caused me to have so many emotions…
Back in December, I called the fertility specialist to schedule an appointment. The doctor I was referred to had a three, yes, THREE month wait. I didn’t think the day would ever come, but it finally did.
The whole waiting game was joyful, fearful, and full of moments of anger and sadness, just thinking of the possibilities. This past Monday we went to our first appointment and it went so well! Scott and I feel so lucky to be working with this doctor, and we know that we are in the best hands we could ever be in. I’ve gone through some tests and we’re taking steps in the right direction, so we’ll see what happens.
Oh, and one more thing…that brings me so much joy! I’ve started a new workout program and I am LOVING IT! I have already seen huge improvements and I can’t wait to see the progress that I keep making.
But really, look at those ^ shoulders and traps! And that was even at the beginning of the workout 🙂
The simple things like that make me so happy.
