Weekend fun

Adam and I had a pretty good weekend. We hung out with the Ludwig's on Friday. Mary and one of their neighbors made us homemade pizza that was delicious. Then we played a game and just chatted. We got to meet their new little one, Quinn. He is adorable and looks almost exactly like their little girl.
Saturday, Adam worked and then we went to the Utah Arts Festival! This was the first year I had ever been. We walked around and looked at a lot of art work. Then, we saw a ward member that does pottery and we bought a few things. It was really cool to see how creative people are.
Here are some pictures:







Afterward, we went to Ogden and saw our friends, Tanya and Jace! We went to the drive-in and watched Cars 2 and Kung Fu Panda 2! It was a ton of fun! Here are some pictures from that:




It was a good weekend! I just love weekends! 
Also, another exciting thing is, we have tomatoes!! Adam got some stuff from a friend of his and so they planted them by the house and we also have cucumbers, pumpkins, and strawberries. But right now only the tomatoes are coming in and possibly the cucumbers. I have pictures of them too! 










Hope everyone has a good week! I should be going in to do my labs and sonohystergram this week sometime. =) Hopefully everything turns out ok.

New Job

Adam had recently decided that he needs a new job and I agree with him. His current place of work is not a good environment for him. Anyway...our neighbor, Spencer told him to apply at ARUP (which is a laboratory that does with all the specimens that come from hospitals and such). We also have a lady in our ward that is a manager up there so she put in a good word for Adam. He applied to a bunch of jobs and this morning he finally heard back! They wanted to do a phone interview at 3:30. He came home and was so excited, I had to tell him to relax many times. Haha. They called around 3:45 and it sounded like things were going well. Adam was shaking and I had to tell him to breathe and slow down. At the end, I saw a big smile come across his face and he was doing a little happy dance. He got a second interview which he will have tomorrow. This will mean a lot to our family and I am hoping that he gets it. =)

A weekend full of happiness and a little bit of sadness

This weekend was jam packed with stuff to do! 
On Friday, we helped our very good neighbors move to their new home! They are official homeowners!! It is definitely good for them because they have a baby on the way and don't have the room on their half of the house. We tried to talk them into switching with us because we have one more room then they did. But it is understandable that they want their own space. We are certainly going to miss them. They were the best neighbors we could have asked for. Fortunately, they didn't move too far away! They are living sort of by Adam's parents so we can pester them whenever we are out that way. Our neighbors that live in the basement are going to take their place which is going to be totally awesome and then we will get new neighbors! 


Then today we celebrated my niece's birthday! She is turning 2 tomorrow! I can't even believe it! She is really one of the cutest little girls ever! =) She just makes me happy. We went to Eagle Mountain to their house to celebrate! We had wonderful food and had a wonderful time watching her open her presents. Lots of good laughs. After that, we went to watch Adelaide dance in a recital but unfortunately we were late and missed her dance! =( Hopefully someone will give them a video of it so we can watch it. Adam and I stay with Drew and Adelaide and watched Karena dance at the end! She is a dance teacher and helped teach some of the dances. It was fun to watch her dance! 


Here are some pictures from Adelaide's birthday celebration:

Time for presents!

She sure loved that ball! It was fun to watch her.

Maybe baby?

Adam and I had an appointment with a reproductive doctor today. Let me tell you how excited and nervous we were. We were so nervous and excited that Adam got pulled over for speeding on our way. It was kind of funny but not at the same time. The cop was fortunately pretty nice. We got there and signed in. I felt kind of funny because I looked around and we were the youngest people in the office. My heart went out to all these people who were there for some of the same stuff we were there for. My name got called and we went into our designated room. The nurse took my blood pressure and weighed me. I was kind of surprised because I didn't know they would do all this check up stuff. I thought we were there to talk about our options. Anyway...we sat there for the shortest amount of time I've ever had to wait for a doctor. Our doctor came in with a resident, which I have actually had the pleasure of working with for a while now. It was nice to see a familiar face. It actually put me at ease and I felt I could ask her questions. The doctor told us that we will need to do In-vitro fertilization. Some info about in-vitro (if you are curious)
He said he was pretty optimistic about it working because of our ages. I was starting to get pretty excited and then he brought up the money issue. I wasn't sure what we were going to do about it since we aren't exactly the riches people and our insurance doesn't cover it. The doctor said that we could apply for a grant from some place called the Miracle Fund. We thought that would be really awesome because then we wouldn't have to worry about a loan and having to pay for it. Unfortunately, we have to wait another few more months before we can qualify. I think it will be good in the long run but I was getting really excited about it because it was happening pretty fast. Then, the doctor told me they were going to do an exam which I definitely had no idea that was going to happen since I thought we were just TALKING. They did the exam and that seemed to be pretty good. Now I have to wait about 2 weeks to do some labs to make sure I am healthy reproductive wise. Then, they are going to a sonohysterogram to make sure my uterus is healthy as well. (Sorry if that is too much info). But this is what I am going through and I will probably post more posts with TMI! 
So now we have to wait for about two weeks and take care of these labs. Then, we will probably wait until we can qualify for this grant. We might have to wait for a while for the grant to go through which might take a while or might not take that long. No matter what happens we are just determined to have a baby or babies! ;) 
That's all for now. I will update when we do the labs. (Adam has to do some labs as well.)
