it is my pleasure in introducing
sammantha from: dysfunctional ever after.
you know those types of bloggers that make you laugh
so hard your tummy aches for hours afterwards?
or the kind that make you want to read read read each time they post?
this is your girl!
she is hilarious, not afraid to speak her mind, and my newest coolest friend.
What up mama?! My name is Sammantha and I thoroughly suck at introductions.
To get to know me a little bit better, head over to my blog Dysfunctional Ever After.
There is even a convenient “About Me” section. I’m fancy, huh?
Oh yeah, I guess that’s a piece for my introduction: I blog.
And I have a hairless dog, we call him the Hairless Wonder.
I’ve been blogging ever since I can remember,
but never kept a specific blog any longer than like a month.
I have commitment issues. (But you wouldn’t know it considering I’m hitched to a guy named Ryan.) Dysfunctional Ever After is a totally different story.
I started blogging in this baby as a lame attempt to document the
wedding planning process for friends and family, and just fill people in on our life.
Well, needless to say, I hated wedding planning and therefore
there weren’t that many posts about cakes, dresses and centerpieces.
But because my husband and I were both in school, there was a lot of talk about
And just general complaining about school, let’s not forget that.
Now I’m just married and boring. At least that’s what my friends say.
You want to know what else my friends say? “So, when are you having a baby?” …
and my in-laws. …and my grandma. …and my coworkers.
It is great. And by great, I mean it sucks.
It’s a personal question and I have no idea why it is considered
normal to ask someone that, especially taking into account the many
women that have issues conceiving – including me.
But that is neither here nor there.
And, let’s be honest, do you really want me to look you in the eyes and be like
“MAN are we TRYING!!” No, no you don’t.
After careful thought and prayer, I’ve opted to go with this answer:
“Whenever God decides it is right. It’s not up to me.”
I’ve been taught to rely on God for just about every facet of my life,
why should pregnancy (or adoption) be any different?
It isn’t about when I want to have a baby.
Bringing a child (a human being) into the world is
so much more beyond just me and my husband.
So for now, I’m trusting in God, not science.
Not that science is bad, science is great.
But because I’m not exactly fertile Myrtle, we are trusting in God
as far as the whole baby-making thing goes.
We are not trying, but we are not preventing either.
And it is beautiful, fully putting our possible future child in the hands of God 100%.
I’m not condemning anyone that chooses to do things differently.
I’ve done things differently, and I don’t regret a thing.
It’s just that right now, I feel some sort of conviction to work like this – and it is beautiful.
But for the record, I really hope God decides to wait for us to conceive/have the opportunity to adopt until after I:
- Go to Italy.
- Get a steady career.
- Take a week off work to just lounge with my husband.
- Run a 5k.
- Pay off half of our student loans.
- Have a heck o’ savings.
- Go to Vegas.
- Take a vacation with my girlfriends.
(I hope He saw that.)
Anyways, that’s my two cents on it all.
I hope I didn’t bore you all; it’s just been something on my mind lately.
I promise I can be a lot more fun, check out my blog if you don’t believe me.
You can stalk me and my hilariousness these places:
--- Special thanks to Amanda, I love you girl!
I don't think she could have said all the baby stuff better.
I think I agree with 110% of that. Yep!
