Infertility Awareness Week April 24-30

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week (April 24-30). This is a big deal to me b/c like you all know we are dealing with infertility. I know we are not the only couple out there and that is why I wanted to put this reminder out there! I was trying to look up events around southern Indiana and Indiana in general b/c as of right now there are not many. I did come across a 5K run and 1 mile family walk THIS saturday in Evansville at USI at 8:00 am!!! Sorry for the short notice. I was so happy to see something so close to us.....I would totally be attending but I have to work this week-end:( BUT if anyone would love to go I have a link:

This is their first Chance to Hope Event and I know it won't be the last! Hopefully we can attend next year!!! I love how they had standing together infertility LOVE:)

Good Bye Winter Blues

I am such a bad blogger I haven't posted in such a long, long time!!! Really I didn't forget. Just have been busy doing things here and there but nothing really exciting. We have been getting caught up on yard work and Jarod has probably mowed 5 times ALREADY! I guess that is what we get for having thick grass! I have all my flowers planted. Yay! There is this really great greenhouse we found last year when we went to the Azelea garden (near Petersburg) this year I went there to get my flowers. They have so many to choose from!!! I LOVE flowers and want to get more. haha.

We have been seeing our neighbors more since it is finally warmer....that is something I miss in the winter time b/c I never want to go outside in the winter. I hate being cold! Not a whole lot more going on but I have some pictures that I snapped these past couple weeks! I need to start taking some more pictures. I haven't used my camera the past month really at all but I know I will be making up for that since it is SPRING....and almost SUMMER! Hallelujah!!!! 

Me with DeAnne, Sis and Conner. Conner is like, why am I with all the girls. lol

D and Conner

Me and my buddy. Love this girl!

The guys about to duke it out! 

My man workin!

Khloe has it made! She does this A LOT. haha. All she has to worry about is treats, play time, sleep, play time and sleep. lol

Flowers and trees are blooming and I just love it! This is a tree next to our house that is so pretty in the spring!

Hanging out with our neighbor girls and catching up.  

Addy with her easter sucker! I thought these were so cute and fun. CVS always has good easter candy!

Khloe in timeout. If you can't see her she is in the crate...she really doesn't get timeout ever but ran a little too far.

April Fool's Jokes Anyone

Did anyone do any pranks on people today? I know I didn't b/c I didn't realize it was April Fools' day until it was just too late so I missed out! Darn my luck!! I have fun playing jokes on people too....usually they aren't real good but I still like trying;) I looked up just a couple pranks I thought were funny and may have to try them next year. IF I remember. haha.

Tape magnets to the bottom of an empty coffee cup, and attach it to the top of your car. Laugh at all the people who frantically try to get your attention as you drive by.

Put a piece of bubblewrap under the toilet seat so when your victim sits, they are surprised by a loud POP!

Find an old bottle of nail polish that you don't want anymore. Unscrew the cap and set it sideways on a piece of waxed paper, letting the contents flow out into a puddle. When it dries completely, peel it off of the paper. Now you can put it anywhere and trick someone into thinking there is spilled nail polish. Works best on something your victim cherishes or on one of their important documents!

Find a scrap of cloth. Place a dollar on the floor and stay nearby. When the victim comes by and bends down to pick up the dollar, rip the cloth loudly. Most people will reach back to see if they ripped their pants.

If you have little holders for your salt and pepper, switch the salt with sugar and then watch your family's and friend's faces when they try their food! Just make sure they have something they eat salt with.

Get a balloon and put it on the tailpipe of a vehicle (Make sure the car isn't already on!) Then when they get in to start it up it will pop!
