Getting ready to go!

My trip to Denver for the embryo transfer is right around the corner. I can't wait! My IM is getting her hcg trigger shot today and she will have her eggs retrieved on Tuesday morning. I begin the huge PIO shots tomorrow night and will fly out to meet her on Wednesday. The clinic says that the transfer could be on either Friday or Sunday. It all depends on how the embryos do in the lab. We shall see. I have already gotten a few of my things packed and I am looking forward to this adventure. Wish us luck!

BTW-I have several new layouts to show you all, but I can't post them just yet. They are all for phase 2 of the design team competition on The ScrapRoom. I think that I will be able to unveil them on the 1st. ;)

3 Layouts for C&H

I did 3 quick layouts last week using the August kit from C&H Scrapbooks. It included one of the new cool white Sharpies that everyone seems to be looking for and I had fun learning to use it. It is fabulous for doodling. If you want to read my article that I wrote on how to use it, click on this link: August Newsletter. Posted by Picasa

If you want to read the journaling, click on the photo and it will enlarge it. ;)

Wow, I am a complete slacker

Things have been nutso lately, so the ole blog got put on the backburner. Let me catch up quickly right now and I will post some photos tonight or tomorrow.

The Surrogacy
Everything is going according to plan as of right now. My intended mother (IM) begins her drugs today for her upcoming egg retrieval. This Friday will be my internal ultrasound to check my lining and bloodwork. Hopefully, it will all be perfect. I will be flying out to Denver on the 23rd and our embryo transfer will be sometime between the 24th-26th. I will have 2 days of boring bedrest, but I hope that my IM and my computer keep me company. We are so excited! Please keep my intended parents in your prayers. I really want to make this happen for them, but I realize that once the babies are in me, it is up to God.

I am thrilled to announce that I have made it to Phase 2 of the competition for the new design team for The ScrapRoom! Best of all, my friend Shirley made it too!! She is the previous owner of The Scrapbook Stand where I was lucky enough to be chosen for her first design team. Cool, huh?

The Kiddos
They are both doing well. Hayden is going through a VERY annoying phase though. He whines and cries all the time. He is a total drama king. Emerson is going to the physical therapist next week and we will find out if he needs to see a foot doctor. I sure hope not!

My Birthday
My birthday was a week ago on the 2nd. I got lots of cards and well wishes that made me feel special. Hubby took me out to eat Mexican that night with our friends, the Smiths. It was excellent as always. On Friday, Clayton arranged for the kids to go to Parents Night Out at our YMCA. We got to go out to Olive Garden and Barnes & Noble by ourselves! Now that was a treat :)

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I am 28 this year again. No, seriously. I mean that. Stupid me thought that I was 28 all last year until I saw my page on myspace. It said that I was 27 and I thought that it was wrong, lol. I looked in my profile to see if I had entered my year wrong, but it was right. After doing the math, it occured to me that I skipped being 27 for almost the whole year!
