Wow...I can't believe it is already that time again! It seems like October has just rushed by. If you are new to my blog, welcome! My short story is that DH and I have been TTC for about two years. I was diagnosed with a chromosome abnormality in May, and we are now hoping to adopt. We have been approved since the beginning of August, so now we are just waiting...

Nothing is really new with me this week. I have still been super busy at work and at home. I thought that since I didn't really have much to say, I would post ten random things about myself:
  1. I absolutely love this time of year. I love the crisp autumn air, the scents associated with fall, the leaves, everything. I honestly have a fall "to do" list that I try and accomplish every year just so that I can enjoy the season so much.
  2. I love to read! Lately I have been reading some of Jodi Piccoult's books, but some of my other favorites are "Gone with the Wind" and the "Hunger Games" series.
  3. I play the piano and DH plays the drums. DH has a ton of recording equipment from when he has been in bands, so we are trying to record some music together.
  4. I am training for the Utah Ragnar race...this is a relay race that spans the distance from Logan, UT to Park City, UT (a distance of about 200 miles or so).
  5. Speaking of running, I love to go jogging with my little furkid, Faline. Faline is a miniature pinscher, and she is able to keep up pretty well until I hit 5 miles or so.
  6. I grew up with "the greatest snow on earth", but I hate the snow, snow sports, and anything involving being outside when it is cold/snowy.
  7. I really enjoy making crafts and home decorating, although sometimes I don't feel like I am very creative.
  8. I am a nurse, but I don't work on the floor anymore. I do more quality improvement/manager stuff.
  9. I am an avid Utah Jazz fan. It is not uncommon for me to suggest the DH and I stay in and order takeout so that we can watch Friday night games.
  10. One of my dreams is to visit every continent...unfortunately, the furthest place I have been from home so far is Mexico, so I definitely have a way to go!


  1. Oh I love crafts too! I always do more crafty type stuff in the fall. Not sure why that is...guess I spend too much time outside in the summer.

  2. I have great respect for those of you who run, especially in races!

  3. Wow...I really wish I could be a runner or even jog but even when I was in my best shape I still sucked:(

    Have a great weekend!!!

  4. I have 2 cavalier king charles spaniels. I could do about 3 miles with one of them but only 1 mile with the other. It's fun jogging with them though.
