Happy September ICLW!

Happy Saturday everyone! This will be a short introduction due to the fact that my in-laws are in town this weekend, but I'll try to come up with something more substantial later this week.

Let's see, Keegan and I are both originally from Missouri, but moved to Mississippi in May 2011 for Keegan's job. He's a metallurgical engineer and I'm an art gallery director.

We got married on August 4, 2012 in my hometown in Missouri. Looking back, getting married outside in one of the hottest months of the year was probably a stupid decision, but our wedding was wonderful.

When I say I'm originally from Missouri, that's somewhat of a lie. I was actually born in Canada, but moved to the States when I was young. I'm still a Canadian citizen, and this summer, I was able to show Keegan around my original hometown. You can read more about our vacation here and here

I showed him Niagra Falls
How to tube
and he tried to ski. 

Keegan and I also are the proud owners of two cats, 




On the baby makin' front, I was diagnosed with PCOS and insulin resistance on September 4, 2012 after my periods disappeared when I went off birth control in April. January 2013 was our first official cycle trying, and we haven't gotten a BFP yet. I've had an HSG in June which came back clear. I am currently on 2000 mg of Metformin per day, which has helped me lose about 30 pounds in the last year. After 9 cycles of ovulation but no baby, my doctor, Dr. B, has agreed to put me on Clomid for 3 or 4 cycles, after which, if we are not pregnant, he will refer us to an RE and suggest IVF. You can read more about each cycle in my "Our Journey" page above. 

Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. I love black cats. I had one growing up, but all my cats since then have been tabbies. Good for you on the wait loss - that's awesome. Fingers crossed the clomid does the trick for you!

  2. Hoping that the metaformin keeps doing it's thing and you get your BFP soon. Hugs.

  3. Happy ICLW! Love the picutre from your wedding how fun!!

  4. Happy ICLW! I hope you get your BFP soon!

  5. Happy ICLW! Here's some baby dust for you. Thanks for such a great intro!

  6. Hi from ICLW...I hope you are being monitored while your on clomid to make sure its working. Its a thing for me that I regret taking clomid with my ob instead of going to an RE.

  7. Hey! Happy ICLW!!! Would love to discuss REs with you!! Email me at

  8. Happy ICLW! Best of luck on your journey!
