One Lovely Blog Award


I’ve been nominated by my new friend, Delayed But Not Denied, for the One Lovely Blog Award! Please take a moment to check out her site, she is a relatively new blogger here and is such an encouragement to me, as well as being a fellow sister in Christ. Thank you, Delayed But Not Denied, for the nomination. I look forward to following you on your sojourn and celebrating our miracle babies someday soon!

Here are the Rules:


  1. Thank the person that nominated you and leave a link to their blog
  2. Post about the award
  3. Share seven facts about yourself
  4. Nominate other people (15 at most)
  5. Tell your nominees the good news!

Okay, 7 things about me… hmm. Let’s see:

  1. I like to pretend that I can play the piano. We have one at home and I can [sort of] remember from my childhood lessons how to read music. I can even remember a decent amount of tunes I once knew! The fact is, I’m probably definitely much rustier at playing that I like to imagine… maybe adult lessons are in order.
  2. I also like to think that I can carry a tune. Jake enjoys informing me that I, in fact, cannot carry a tune in a bucket. But I still sing anyway… especially at church… loudly. Which he just loves.
  3. My ultimate dream is to one day own and operate an animal rescue. All critters welcome! In the meantime, I’m completely okay with rescuing as many critters as I can fit in my home without becoming, well, that weird animal-hoarding lady.
  4. I’m a paralegal and I LOVE my field of work! I have my bachelor’s degree in legal studies and am currently studying for a voluntary national certification test, which I am taking next week (eek!). Nervous!
  5. Next year I’ll have known my husband for exactly half of my life. We met when I was I was 18 and he was 24. Man, okay now I feel old….
  6. I’ve become a total e-book snob. I love to read so much, but don’t have tons of room to store books. Hence, my e-reader gets lots of action.
  7. I’m also a coffee aficionado. I loooooove coffee, perhaps a bit too much. TTC = limited caffeine intake, so I’m often at odds with myself and my love of the  coffea arabica bean.



Now, for the nominations! I nominate:

  1. Angela at Surviving Infertility
  2. Lisa at Bloomin Uterus
  3. AKL at Baby Wanted! An IVF Journey
  4. 30yr Old Nothing at Tales of a 30 Year Old Nothing
  5. Single Gene Me at Single Gene Me
  6. Meghan at Whistle While You Wait

  1. Hey Hun – I’m catching up on WP Reader and I saw your lovely post. Aw, thank so much for the very kind words. It’s so touching. Aw, I’m very happy we can both encourage each other on this very tough and grueling sojourn. I’ve felt so much support in our little blogging community in the past two months than I have IRL so your very kind supportive and encouraging words mean so much to me. Yes, I touch and agree with you – our healthy babies will arrive IJN. RE #1 – it’s never too late to take piano lessons. My hubby and I have been learning piano for almost three years. Before, I had zero experience on the piano. So I agree with you that you need to check out piano lessons. LOL, I’m the same way with singing. But it’s so fun! That is so cool that you want to open a rescue shelter. Anything is possible. How many critters call you mom, ha ha? Wow, a paralegal- very impressive! I’m sure you’ll ace the test with no issues. Same here with knowing hubby half my life a year from now. I think it’s two years from now because I was closer to 19. LOL. I love reading, too! Currently, I mostly read news articles and blog posts. My goal is to read more books in 2017. You should have a book review section in your blog. I love coffee, too. I will indulge during the follicular phase but abstain in luteal phase since coffee raises cortisol and cortisol competes with progesterone for progesterone receptors. Thanks for participating and I enjoyed learning more about you.
