Happy (belated) Birthday Ben!!

Monday, March 21 Ben turned 31!! Sadly he's so busy with school and I'm working long hours that we didn't do much to celebrate. Monday when I finally got home my parents grilled out for us. Wednesday night we met his parents, sister & brother-in-law at the Country Club for pasta night, yumm!! It seems the older you get the less you want to celebrate :) Instead of asking for specific presents you ask for money.. (to put towards bill in our case)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Benny, Avery and I love you so much and we hope you know how much you mean to us!!

I was looking back through some of my posts and realized I haven't updated on our baby making status, or lack there of... Ben and I continue to struggle with infertility. We knew before getting pregnant with Weslee something wasn't quite right. It took six months with her and the second go around we got pregnant right after a surgery when my "pipes" were clean. Since my miscarriage this past November we've continued to try... fast forward to today & we're still trying!! Infertility is something I can't describe in words. Unless you've been there you can't truly understand the darkness that comes with it. We have so many people that pray for us on a daily basis and let us know they're thinking of us. I can't say enough how much this means to me, I will get random texts or e-mails from people saying they prayed for me that day. It's amazing how they always come just when I need them!! I have been very open with our journey since getting pregnant with Weslee. We're not at a place where we want to talk about what we're facing now. I will be very open with our journey once we get to where we're trying to go. For now, please pray that we make the right decisions, for the doctors guidance, our peace of mind, and for Gods will to be done in our lives.

Mississippi weekend!!

Last weekend my mom, dad, Hannah (Wesley's girlfriend) and myself got to take a road trip to Starkville, Mississippi to watch Wes and his team play!! It was a tournament with Iowa and Mississippi State. They were calling for rain all weekend so we packed sweat shirts and jeans.. what we weren't prepared for was how could it was!! Friday was just windy but Saturday it was rainy, windy, & cold!! We definitely didn't' have enough clothes.. Sunday before the games we ran around town (which is very small) to look for any type of warm clothing. We found scarves and gloves on a sale rack at a Dollar General. We stayed in the same hotel as the team so we were able to spend a lot of time with Wes before and after the games!! It was such a wonderful weekend even though the weather was crazy!!

Mississippi State has a unique field and it was neat to play there!!

Wes doing what he does, pitching!!

It was a great weekend, it's always so refreshing to see Wes!! He's had a long journey and we're so proud of what all he's overcome!! Their official season began last night and they won, they also won today so they're starting out on a great start!! I look forward to many more road trips and cheering for the Georgia State Panthers and #34!!

Love you uncle Wes, we're so proud of you!!
