The Big-semi announcement..

Okay so first I think it is totally hilarious that everyone jumped to prego right away..but I guess I can’t blame you! I won’t hold you in suspense any long though….

I’m not prego…yet! The announcement is however still something that is going to change our current life situation. What you ask? Well it is two different things. You all weren’t so far off with the pregnancy thing. The hubs and I have been going through infertility treatments for the past month and a half, and boy they never warn you that you sign your life away to the drs office when you start this..not to mention that our doc is about 40 minutes away from our house and I been going there every day for the past week! Anyways, we are really excited to be hopefully starting this new life stage soon. I was really overwhelmed at first but now I am use to it. I am truly learning what it will be to have your body no longer be your own (as in the baby’s once I get prego). Believe me with all the ultrasounds and tests and assigned “relations” my vajayjay hasn’t seen this much action…well ever! Sorry if that was too much info :) We are in a critical time frame right now so who knows we might have another big announcement coming again soon!

We are trying really hard to trust God and his timing. I know that it is ultimately up to Him and we knows what will be best! It is hard not to get my hopes up but I have faith that if this isn’t the right time the when it does happen it will be perfect.

As if this isn’t enough change for us there is another big announcement. We just found out on thursday that the hubs is getting deployed for 4 months starting mid-december. We had talked about possibilities if this happened but then we had decided that it wouldn’t so it had been the last thing on my mind (doesn’t that always happen?)! So here is what we have decided…

We are moving out of our house and putting all our stuff in storage and I am moving to Cali for the 4 months! Bako here I come!! I am really going to miss the hubs (more than I can even say), but I am looking forward to getting to spend some time with the fam and I am really proud of him for being so willing to serve his country. And yes it will be interesting what happens with the pregnancy but again we are praying and trusting God with his timing.

So the Charles and I are making the road trip to cali where I will once again live under my parents roof :) It’s always weird to stay for a long period of time now that I married (without the hubs), but I can’t wait! It will totally make it a lot easier to be away from the hubs.

Why are we moving out of our house you ask? Good question! Well we are going to be moving anyways about 2 months after the hubs gets back from the desert so we thought this would be a good way to be able to save a good chunk of money (our housing allowance) and I wasn’t too thrilled with saying here by myself anyways!

So fair warning..this next few weeks are going to be very crazy! We have to basically get everything pack up and moved and all the logistics worked out in the next few weeks and we are still planning a trip to cali for thanksgiving too! I am also trying to figure out what to do about Christmas since we were suppose to spend it with the hubs family and now he won’t be here..sadness! 

Anyways, that is what has been keeping me so crazy lately! I am sorry that I have been absent and I will provide you a vacation recap soon! Please keep us in your prayers during these next few weeks..there's a lot of change a head for us!

Oh and did I mention that my hormones are out of control lately..poor hubby!


  1. Good luck with the fertility treatment. Praying for you! Huuby and I have been ttc for 11 months. We are trusting God but it still is hard sometimes.

  2. know we're praying (and have been!) for you guys. any way we can figure out a get-together before josh leaves?? he just texted jer last week about that, but now that those plans have kinda changed, we'd really like to be able to see you guys sooner! even if it's coming over and helping you pack!! :)

  3. Good luck with the baby prospect! I'm hoping it's not to hard of a process. The baby will be such a blessing. I can't wait to have kids.

  4. Wow, so much going on for you guys. Prayers for both of you right now with all that you have going on. We tried for almost two years with Julianne and trust me, it's worth the wait and all the struggle. I will pray that God blesses you with a little one!!

  5. Oh, sweet friend, I am so happy for you, and I so admire your upbeat attitude and positive-ness!

    First off, yay on fertility treatments! I know how hard this can be, so I'm praying for your body and the doctors and you and the hubs as you go on this exciting journey!

    And second, please thank you wonderful husband for serving all of us so willingly. And thank you for your sacrifice as well:) I pray for safety for him, and happiness for you home in Cali!

  6. Wow, you have SO much going on. Like Brittany said, thank your husband for us!! And good luck with the fertility treatments--I'm sure that's incredibly stressful, especially with your new situation.

    Keep us updated! :)

  7. Way to go Ashley! I am positive that things will work out and God's plan will make you smile! Thank God for your husband too! That is awesome and amazing that he is doing that. Keep us all updated and we can provide encouragement for you too! Praying,

  8. Wow girl you have a lot going on.
    I will keep you in my prayers and pray that you get that little baby you want and good for you for having such a positive attitude, your such a sweet woman!

  9. Hey sweetie, so glad that you are in good spirits during this huge change, your hubby is lucky to have you! You are a super patient wife, hope your man's deployment goes well and I know will work out the timing for you if you get pregnant, hope that all goes well too! Hey, you are going to be in my state, yahoo! Too bad you weren't a little more Southern, I would love to "meet" you! :) I am in the Newport Beach area, so if you visit please let me know. ;) Hope moving and everything goes well for you, I will be keeping you in my prayers.

  10. Holy cow -- talk about a few changes and stress under your belt! Praying for ya'll!

  11. Wow those are some changes! Praying for smooth transitions in both areas of your life. Keep us posted when you have time! Good luck and have fun with your new adventures! XOXO

  12. I just found this did I miss it?? I am sorry that things are so crazy right now, but kudos to you for being so positive about it. You are quite inspirational! :)

  13. I'd give my right ARM for a 4 month "deployment" the Army does nothing under 12 months, our last one was a 15 month deployment.
