On to Happier Things...

I am 99% sure that I am not KU this cycle. I am not surprised and really not that dissapointed. Ever since CD1, I have had a feeling that it wasn't going to happen this time. I am okay with it, although I would have obviously still like to be proven wrong. I had a little bit of spotting this morning, so we'll see if AF shows up in the next day or so.

Anyway, on to happier things:

A big "THANK YOU" to Type A for giving me my very first blog award! How exciting is that?!?!

The instructions that go along with this award are as follows:
* Thank the person who nominated you for this award.

* Copy the award and place it in your blog.

* Link the person who nominated you for this award.

* Tell us 7 interesting things about you.

* Nominate 7 bloggers.

* Post the links to the 7 bloggers you nominate.

***Here are seven interesting things about me***

  1. My very favorite book of all time is Gone with the Wind. I have read it several times and know I will read it several more.
  2. I started playing the piano when I was in kindergarten, but am sadly out of practice.
  3. I have a HUGE phobia of snakes and spiders. It is so bad that I can't even walk by them in the pet store and watching them on TV gives me the creeps.
  4. When I go grocery shopping, I try to keep my cart organized with like items together (i.e. refrigerated foods in one part, produce in another, cans separate). I do this so that they will hopefully be bagged that way and it will be easier to put them away when I get home.
  5. I grew up with the "greatest snow on earth" and just a few minutes away from great ski resorts, but I don't ski or snowboard. I tried boarding 4 years ago and do not like it.
  6. I enjoy cooking and wish I had more time to try out new recipes.
  7. I cannot stand milk. I won't even put it on my cereal.

My Basic World


Al Anonymous


Thank you ladies for sharing your thoughts and insights with the me and the rest of the TTC/IF world!


As a side note: I am trying to plan a delicious Valentine's dinner for DH and me. I know that V-day is still a few weeks off, but I am really trying to plan ahead. I figure that we will go out for Valentine's on Saturday night, so I want to make a fancier dinner and dessert on Sunday. I know I want to make a chocolate cheesecake, but besides that I am still pretty clueless. Please let me know if you have any ideas!


  1. Congrats on the award! Love learning more about you, I also HATE snakes and spiders!

    And thank you for nominating me!! **Blush**

  2. Thank you SO much for the nomination...totally made my day!!! My first blogger award, yay!

    Hmmm, I always go to Rachael Ray for receipe ideas...her's are yummy but usually pretty easy! Check it out:

  3. Awww, thanks! I live in Alaska, and cannot ski or snowboard to save my life! I have a great recipe for coq a vin if you'd like it. Its just chicken, mushrooms, and wine. I like to make it for special dinners.

  4. Thanks for the nominaiion!! I liked reading more about you too-I especially love it when people post their phobias. I don't know why, I'm just always curious about stuff like that :)
    There are lots of 'foodie' mags here in Aus-for Valentine's the menus they suggest are often centred around seafood (prawns, oysters etc) but I'm not sure if that would be difficult to get where you are? To my man, things like corned beef (slow cooked, then finished in the oven) with roast potatoes is a fave, or bbq style lamb ribs! Hope that helps :)

  5. Sorry I meant nomination-hate it when I misspell.
