  1. I (julie) LOVE Metallica too! Good luck on the baby honey! Can't wait to see some prego pics!!!! And we would LOVE a holiday card! And would love to send you one as well! Will see if I can find your email on your blog then send you our info!

    1. I'm so happy that we are going to be exchanging cards! My parents just turned 16 when I was born so I grew up listening to Metallica, Nirvana, AC/DC ect. The doctors think they may have found out what has been causing me not to ovulate so once we get my hormones regulated we should be good to go...fingers crossed!

    I also loved reading this too dear. I have struggled with anxiety practically my entire life and blogging offers such an amazing outlet to help get those feelings under control. Talking to you all and hearing your feedback makes a world of a difference. Thank you for tagging me sweet girl. You bring sunshine to my life too. :)

    Ash <3

    1. You are very welcome love! I was actually the class clown growing up and in high school and very outgoing but when I was 18 its like this awful thing took over me and ever since then I have been battling anxiety. It got really bad for awhile and I was having panic attacks all the time. Blogging allowed me the comfort of talking to new people without the initial shock and fear so it really helped me get comfortable with starting new conversations. I hate that you have battled with anxiety your whole life. I can't even imagine. It has been frustrating for me and it has only been a few years so my heart goes out to you.

  7. Thank you for including me in your picks for the Sunshine award much appreciated. Oh your trying for a baby??? IF so how exciting. praying and very happy for you:):):)

    1. Of course girl!Yes we have been trying for awhile and there were complications. We still have a long way to go but the doctor finally figured it out so fingers crossed :) Thank you so much!
