Guess what?! Guess what!?

We're NOT skipping next month! Wooowhooo! (Not that she reads this...but thank you Mom!)

Here's how all this has come about. My mom and I were talking the other day and she was telling me how my dad does NOT want to do this vow renewal/wedding thing. He had basically said she would be standing up there alone. LOL Well, knowing my dad the way I do, I knew that sooner or later he would give in and be happy about it but I decided to put a little extra pressure on him. (That's what daughters do, right?) So, I told mom to tell him that M and I were putting off next months insemination so that we could be there for the wedding without fear of popping a baby out in the church during the vows.....so he HAD to do it. :o) (M and I, up until that point, had decided not to tell them about the delayed plans) That did the trick! My mom then went on to tell me that she had been wondering if it wouldn't be better to have the ceremony in November instead of December anyhow. She was concerned about the possibility of bad weather in December and it being so close to Christmas. She didn't want people to have to travel in snow or miss out because of it and so that people wouldn't be all stressed out and rushing because of Christmas the next week.

So, per mom and dads orders, we are trying next month.

Holy cow! I love it when a plan comes together. LOL Now if the WHOLE plan would just come together.

And get this. IF all goes according to plan, which for us it never does, but IF it does. We will be trying again around our birthdays (April 6 and 8) and that would put the test time around the 20-22. Guess where we will be the 18-20. Kentucky! With my parents! Wouldn't that be something!!? To get a BFP while home with the folks!! One can hope. And pray.

I've got more good news. I just love being able to post something positive for a change.

I found my mom a wedding dress! I'm not sure who's more excited...her or me! With her and I being 500 miles apart, shopping for a dress together wasn't going to happen. So she asked me to try and find her one on ebay. Mom is a little on the "hefty" side, so I knew that would be a task. But I did it! I found several and emailed her the pics. She narrowed it down to 2 and finally to one. I watched the auction for 2 days. 4 different people were bidding on it. The auction was due to end at midnight last night. I placed a bid. Went to bed. Set the clock for 1150. Got up and watched the price go up and up but I was still the highest bidder. The clock struck midnight and mom was the proud new owner of a $900 wedding dress for a mere $135! Yippee!! It's beautiful. Mom's a little concerned it might be a tad small but she says shes got 7-8 months to whip herself into shape. :o)

Here's a couple of pics of the previous owner wearing it. I think it's beautiful.




Bring on the dress!

Bring on the BFP!

Bring on the ceremony!

Bring on the New Years Eve baby!

We're ready!

I'm so glad you decided not to sit out this next try! I say take every opportunity as it comes cause you never know if that one is the one that's meant to be. Besides, we can't plan around our due dates 'cause who the heck even knows if we'll deliver on our due date. Maddie was due the day after Thanksgiving but came Nov 1st instead. You just never know! What a blessing this will be to share your BFP with your family! Best of luck to you both. We are cheering you on!
