Since it is ICLW, I figured a "cliff's note" view into my blog might be in order!  So, for those who are new or just stopping by- welcome!   Here's a little about me and my blog-

  • I'm 30 and graduated from physician assistant school.  I worked as a family-practice PA for 2 1/2 years until I had my sweet baby and couldn't leave her!
  • My husband is 31 and is a veterinarian.  We recently purchased the vet clinic where he works and I am now his office manager.  The best thing about this job is that I can take Paisley with us everyday. :)
  • We got married in 2004 after dating for 6 years.  We started trying for a baby in 2008 which quickly turned into disaster.
  • I have PCOS, he had a varicocele.  Together, we are a reproductive nightmare.
  • We suffered a miscarriage in October of 2009.  Thankfully, I got pregnant again 2 months later.
  • Thanks to a varicocelectomy, ovarian drilling, and metformin, we have a beautiful little 8-month-old girl!  
  • I am an open book.  Occasionally Usually I share more than enough info.  To the point that every now and then, my much more private husband makes me delete something from a post.  (LAME).
  • Our daughter is our world.  She is a curious, busy, sweet, demanding, little bundle of energy that doesn't much care to sleep, eats a ton but never gains weight, and constantly keeps me guessing.  Too bad these things don't come with manuals...


  1. Congrats on your little girl! She's precious.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I am at the disgusting phase of pregnancy and have just discovered a new part of it: eating my way through the day. My appetite is embarassing.
