The results are in!

I need another drum roll please....

Guess what?!

I PASSED!!!!! 

Holy Hannah I can't believe it!! I know I said I felt confident but that was all about the power of positive thinking. haha. They said it would take 2-4 weeks for the results to be posted online so I've been checking the results page every day for a week. It was making me so anxious! I didn't realize I would get an email. haha. But I did when I was driving home from women's conference on Friday. I had already called Justin to meet me at the gas station to help me fill my car with gas, so as I pulled in and parked by the pump, I opened the BOC website. I had been preparing myself on the drive for complete failure. I was certain at that moment I had failed the test. But I opened it up and saw that it said "Eligible for Certification"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

(This is the website. I was waiting for it to change from "Registered" to "Eligible for Cert." Had I failed, it would have gone the other way and said "Eligible for Exam" meaning I could take it again if I wanted. But I did not want that!) 

I couldn't believe it. Justin had come up to my car and was checking on something and I practically honked in his face and waved him into the car. I started crying and screamed I PASSED! He gave me a confused look so I said "My Test! I Passed!" So he leaned over and hugged me and was just as excited as I needed him to be. haha. But then he said "We really need to find a better place to find out good news." hahaha. (We found out we were prego in the car too. haha) 

Anyway, I am beyond thrilled and so relieved. This is what I've been working for for over 6 years and it's finally all paid off. All I have to do is send the BOC some verifications and it's all done. I can officially start practicing as an ATC. 

This is a dream come true!

Next Step

I've been avoiding this post for a while now. In fact, a long time... I've been thinking about it since I wrote the post about our little grey circles that didn't make it. I like writing but the last few weeks have been kinda blah. I also think I've been a little hesitant because I've always wanted these posts to be super happy and chipper but that's not exactly how I feel. After the last post I did get a lot of really nice feedback, one in particular that made me feel extra good. My aunt is an incredible person and I love talking to her. She said to me that no matter how long those grey circles were my babies, they still were and I was allowed to grieve as much as I wanted. I think that kind of gave me permission to really cry and it made me feel a lot better. Thanks Kim. :) 

But now we're on to bigger and better things. I can't lie and say that I'm super excited about this transfer. I think I got WAY too excited for the last one/first one and it ma…

All we know is...

The results are in folks...

YES! We're pregnant!!!
There are simply not words to describe how I feel about this statement. One I've been wanting to make for what seems like forever. One I've heard from so many of my friends and family that made me want to cry. One that seemed impossible to make. And one I am finally able to say for myself. I can't even believe it.
We waited 2 LONG weeks to find out whether or not our little frozen circle would become our miracle. And when I say long, I mean long. Especially when I was supposed to start my period on Friday. Last Friday. So usually when you're trying to get pregnant, you wait till the day your period is supposed to start and you wait... If it doesn't come, you run to the store and buy that expensive little stick and awkwardly try to pee on it. (Maybe they aren't really expensive, but it kinda seems that way, right ladies??) 
Anyway, then you wait a few minutes and see what it says. I had one left over from the la…

Evening in Excellence - Keepers of His Light

A couple weeks ago we had our Evening in Excellence for the Young Women and it turned out so great! A couple girls decided they wanted to use this event as a Value Project for their personal progress so it was up to them to plan end execute the whole thing. I was a little nervous letting that all out of my control since I'm rather a control freak but I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out.

The girls decided on the theme of "Keepers of His Light" and all the decor was fall themed since we did it in October. Here are some pics!

These were the cute invitations we made. Aren't they awesome! We got the paper at Michael's and use the twine thread to tie a bow. :)

Isn't this great paper??

This is Rachel! She is one of the young women that wanted to help. She and Amber basically did everything!

This is beginning of the leaf lanterns that we made. The final product is further down the page... 

Rachel got a little hostile... ;)

This is Amber!! She amaz…
