Longboard first day

Ok so I go and test this thing out in front of our house. Not bad I tell myself, this thing is smooth. So I get up the nerve to skate down a hill down the street. Boy did I get ahead of myself. I was probably only going about 5 mph but it felt like doing 80 mph in a car through a residential area.

Lessons learned:

1. Just because you read about how to do it on doesn't mean your going to an expert the first time out.

2. When you get older the thought of " holy shit I'm I might fall off this skateboard" runs through your mind much more than "man I look so cool on this thing"

I just purchased a longboard. For those who don't know what that is it's basically a long skateboard made for cruising the streets or carving down hills like a snowboard. It came last night and I am excited to test it out. I know Alana must think I am completely nuts to even use this thing. I think I am too but it should be great for exercise. But here's to Alana for excepting the fact she married a nut instead being an ass like most wifes when their husbands want to do something off the wall. We can't all be sane.

We are going to be FAMOUS!!!

And when I say famous, I mean, all over the internet people...THIS IS HUGE!!! Okay, well now that I totally hyped it up, it's not that big of a deal. But Chris and I are going to be the featured couple on this upcoming week (Monday October 29th). Anyway, I am excited and thought I would pass that along to you!

Best Birthday Ever

Soooo....after a crushing blow with the negative pregnancy result, I wiped my tears away with Chris' help and prepared for a wonderful birthday held at SUTRA Lounge in downtown Atlanta. The day started with getting my hair done with a new style and color...whooo...then got changed and off to Sutra Lounge.

When we got to SUTRA the place was virtually empty, but who cares, right? A few of my friends were there and we started the drinking! By the time I looked up from my drink the place was starting to get crowded. Lucky for us, Neera had gotten us the VIP booth and we were officially part of the elite crowd! Anyway, after a few shots and more drinks and tons of dancing, I was TRASHED (it didnt help that I hadnt drank in about 3 months, so my tolerance was terrible). Anyhoo...we stayed until 2am and Chris drove my drunk ass home.

We were literally 2 MINUTES from our house, when some MORON girl rear-ended our BRAND NEW CAR and EVEN WORSE...SHE WOKE ME UP!!! Anyway, insurance information was exchanged and it'll be taken care of this week. We got home, and I made it upstairs somehow and passed out...only to wake up the next morning to a million Birthday calls (so sweet...and yes, I am that popular!)...By the time I actually rolled out of bed and Chris nursed me back to health, it was dinner time!!!

Chris brought me to a wonderful place called NAN Fine Thai Dining. It was awesome and the service was wonderful. All and all it was a Perfect birthday. Not to mention, Chris got me a brand new KICK ASS Canon Elph camera! Is he the best or what?? Jealous...yes...I know, I would be too!

Plus I got to see my mom and she got me a kitchen gadget called The Magic Bullet...which is really more for Chris than for me, because he does the cooking...but at least I will be eating it...

YEA...I am 27th and feeling awesome!!!

Because I love Chris Powers

I like to express myself with music and here are lyrics to a song I think works perfectly for how I feel about Chris:

How can I tell you that I love you, I love you
But I cant think of right words to say
I long to tell you that Im always thinking of you
Im always thinking of you, but my words
Just blow away, just blow away
It always ends up to one thing, honey
And I cant think of right words to say
Wherever I am girl, Im always walking with you
Im always walking with you, but I look and youre not there
Whoever Im with, Im always, always talking to you
Im always talking to you, and Im sad that
You cant hear, sad that you cant hear
It always ends up to one thing, honey,
When I look and youre not there
I need to know you, need to feel my arms around you
Feel my arms around you, like a sea around a shore
And -- each night and day I pray, in hope
That I might find you, in hope that I might
Find you, because hearts can do no more
It always ends up to one thing honey, still I kneel upon the floor
How can I tell you that I love you, I love you
But I cant think of right words to say
I long to tell you that Im always thinking of you
Im always thinking of you....
It always ends up to one thing honey
And I cant think of right words to say

No Babies for us...

So I got a call at 11:55am and thought for sure it was good news because she was calling so early...well it was bad no babies for Chris and I this cycle. The good news is, we are strong and so in love and will move forward with our next cycle. I am not sure when that will all start, but it looks like as soon as Aunt Flow arrives I will start Birth Control pills again for 2-3 weeks, then the injections around day 21, soooo if I do my math correctly, we will be doing another egg retrieval around the end of now we may not be able to go to NYC for Thanksgiving, which means I cant attend my fathers funeral...all for a good reason though, right??

Anyway, obviously we are crushed, but we have to look on the bright-side and move forward and hope for the best! Thank you for all of your prayer and well wishes!

No frozen embabies for us... is a good thing we did a 3 day transfer because none of the other embryo's made it to 5 days!! Oh well...we'll know more in a few days!

Monday, October 1, 2007


Soooo...we got a call on Saturday morning that of course, I missed because my phones were on silent..anyway, the nurse said that Dr. Toledo wanted to do our transfer the next day, Sunday morning at 9:45am. WHOA!! Well cool...right...then I started to freak out, but by mid-day I almost forgot about it as I was too busy going to lunch with Jenny, Veronica and Chris. Going shopping (and leaving empty and finally watching Willow, 300 and MallRats...I love lazy Saturday's...So Sunday morning came and we got ready and headed to the doctor's office.

We got there...and there was NOBODY there! Chris started knocking on doors and nobody answered. We were about to go back downstairs to the main office when we saw a couple leave the office, so we knew SOMEONE was there...right? Not 2 minutes later, an ultrasound tech came and got us. Her name was Portia!

We were brought back to the room, I was told to undress (a custom I am used to)...and she did this awesome ultrasound and Chris got to watch on a flat screen TV! She showed us my uterus and the lining and everything else...then she said "Let's see if the embryo's are up on the screen." There they were...and I started crying! hahaha...2 beautiful 8-cell organisms that will soon turn into 1 or 2 babies...or that's the plan anyway. So Dr. Toledo came in and was super excited about the whole thing, explained the procedure and then started. We watched the flat screen as the cathiter went in, and saw 2 tiny flashes as the embryo's were put in and then as the catheter was taken out. I had to sit with my feet up for only 5 minutes and we were good to go. Of course, Chris was squeezing my hand the whole time and I cried again.

Even more good news: We thought we only had 2 embryo's left to freeze, but we have 3. One that we thought was not going to start growing, started splitting a little late but its we will know if we have 3 embryos to freeze on Wednesday. Keep those fingers crossed...
