National Infertility Awareness Week

Today I am full of gratitude in my heart for Megan at And Here's to You Mrs. Robinson she had a guest on her blog by the name of Amanda from A Royal Daughter and her post was exactly what I needed in my life right now.  As most of you know I am suffering with infertility, and if you didn't know you can read my blog post here.  This week has been a really hard week for me and I feel myself struggling with not having a child more frequently.  But today I came across her post and I am so grateful.  She informed me that it was National Infertility Awareness Week, I had no idea.  She has a lot of great posts about infertility and her journey and what she has learned.

Here are the links that I loved the most:



This has helped me tremendously this week, she has a lot of great words and insight to help you.  If you are going through this journey I hope you take the time to read these links and I hope this can give you insight, hope, and clarity into infertility.

Lottery, Dream House, and More!

Haile over at Penguins, Pasta & Polka Dots has this fun weekly link up that I thought would be fun to participate in so here it is!

This week's First Things First topics are:
First thing you would do/buy if you won the lottery
First person you call when you get amazing news
First thing you do when you've had a bad day


So here are my answers!

1. First thing you would do/buy if you won the lottery: The first thing I would do is pay 10% of it in tithe to the church that I belong to.  After that I would pay off our debt so that we could live debt free.  Then I would buy our dream house in our dream area and have a farm with chickens, horses, pigs.  With a lake that we could have ducks and fish and go boating.  Then I would buy my husband a GTO that he dreams about having and then if there is money left over buy me something nice.

2. First person you call when you get amazing news: Along with everyone else I am sure, the first person I would call is my husband then I would call my mom and dad then Derek's family.  I love sharing good news so I usually share it with a lot of people, I always hate sharing bad news.

3. First thing you do when you've had a bad day.  I usually call my husband and vent about the situation and he usually makes me feel better.  Then once I am home from work I veg out and eat ice cream and cookies and watch a movie with my husband and try to forget about the day.



Now it's your turn! Answer the questions in a post then click on the picture and link up with everybody!  Can't wait to see what your first thing first answers are!
