10 things I’m Thankful For

So yesterday was a bad day! The IVF coordinator called me to tell me that they got a letter from our insurance saying that they were denying coverage of our IVF procedure. I was upset, cried for a little bit….then laid on the couch the rest of the day completely dejected. These insurance companies are criminals, and I’ve been so frustrated dealing with all this crap surrounding it…..but I don’t want to get going on this topic!

I woke up this morning, and wanted to mention a few things that I’m thankful for and sort of shift the tone. Ok here we go….

1. I’m thankful that I have an amazing, supporting and loving husband.

2. I’m thankful that I have amazing, loving and supportive parents.

3. I’m thankful for my two gorgeous fur babies!

4. I’m thankful that I’ve been blessed with having all of life’s necessities (food, shelter, water, cable tv…hehe jk ab cable…but I do love it!)

5. I’m thankful for my friends who are there for me when I need them to be.

6. I’m thankful to be pregnant with our first beautiful child!

7. I’m thankful for living in Miami, the most amazing, beautiful, sunny city!

8. I’m thankful for my health. I survived cancer, and now am perfectly healthy (minus the infertility).

9. I’m thankful to have traveled the world and have been blessed to do it at such a young age.

10. I’m thankful to not have to work currently, during this first trimester. It hasn’t been easy, but I couldn’t imagine feeling this way & working!


Hopefully this will get my day going right!


Rewind to Last Weekend

So it seems that I am super behind in posting what’s going on with us!Let’s rewind to last weekend….we actually, for ONCE, had zero plans and got to enjoy some time in Marathon!

Friday night we went to our fave Castaways for some sushi. We have always loved Castaways, it’s the most unassuming hole in the wall located down a random street in a trailer park.  But regardless of what it looks like, it’s really this fabulous and delicious restaurant with super fresh fish and sushi! We ordered a few of the specialty rolls and ate so much that we practically needed a wheelchair to get back to our car.

24 Hours in Lisbon

So in order to take full advantage of squeezing the most travel in before we left Europe and moved back to the US, we decided to book our flights back to Miami with a 24 hour layover in Lisbon, Portugal.

Portugal has been on our list for quite some time, and although we only had 24 hours we were determined to enjoy every last minute of our trip.

We flew from Nice to Lisbon, just a quick 2 hour flight…..

Boarding our flight from Nice to Lisbon....with SOOO much carry on it was majorly illegal!

This is Really Happening

We’re in the final countdown to our big move back to Miami…

Friday the movers came and packed everything up to be shipped via container back to Florida.  We used an amazing company called “Cadogan Tate”. They were fast, professional, clean and friendly! Even the motorcycle will be shipped back Best of all they handled all of the paperwork with easy and professionalism. I would definitely recommend them!

Back to Monaco

So we’re back in Monaco after a lovely 2 week holiday in Tuscany.  What an unforgettable trip!  I’m working on my posts & getting all my pics together and will share some details from the trip hopefully tomorrow.

The doggies were returned to us on Monday evening.  Our dog walker/ sitter is so great. You can tell the dogs really love her!  But there is nothing like seeing your dogs after being away, they give you cuddles and kisses and so much love! We missed them so much, and talked about them nearly every day. They really are our fur babies. I can’t even imagine how it would feel to be away from a real, human child.

We returned to some hostility from the boss.  He’s once again trying to place the blame on the fact that we have no clients. Saying that every time we go on vacation, it’s when he needs us.  I love being the scape goat…it’s just great!

Since our return back on Monday we’ve been trying to finalize some plans for our move back to Miami. There’s just so much to think about….buying a car, where will we live, job, how can we budget, etc!! Just trying to put together a check list of everything that needs sorted out.

The Monaco Yacht Show started yesterday, which is a HUGE deal in Monaco. We have tickets, we just can’t decide the best time to go.  We went last year, and honestly it wasn’t that fun.  It’s mostly for yachting professionals, so we just felt out of place. Maybe this year it will be different.
