How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Sixteen

The only problem? An unforeseen snowstorm that hit the entire state that night.

Here’s the thing about having a husband that runs a commercial snow crew: if it snows, he’s on. It doesn’t matter if we’re several hundred miles away on a weekend getaway. Snow = hubby’s on the phone. A lot. So while this little mama may have been ready to hit the hay, Ricky’s phone had different ideas for our night. Basically that it was going to go off every twenty minutes until six am...Continue reading…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Fifteen

…I made a split second decision to go with our happiness and see what happened. And I haven’t looked back since.

As the days rolled by, it was suddenly December. The holidays were upon us – and I was so excited to shop for a Christmas gift for Ricky that I couldn’t stand it.

We were busy, but things really weren’t that eventful: For our first Christmas together, I found the classic velvet stockings to hang by the fireplace at Pottery Barn – they were gorgeous. One for him, one…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Fourteen

…But he didn’t. He put the ring on my finger and kissed me. It was perfect.

The next two weeks went by in a blur. Between announcing our engagement, everyone wanting to check out “the ring”, a new puppy and life in general, we were a busy couple. When the day of our engagement photos finally arrived, I couldn’t believe that it had already been two weeks since our official engagement!

We had a blast throughout our engagement session! It was snowy out, but that really just…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Thirteen (aka our engagement story)

A new puppy and an impending engagement. I had a lot to be excited for!

The following day, Monday, I was full of the jitters. I was bringing Lucy with me to my office for the day and my gut was telling me that we were getting engaged that evening.

Once I got to my office, I figured the day was going to go by slower than slow – but to be honest, it flew by in the blink of an eye! Between Mondays being the craziest day of the week, keeping an eye on my little Lucy (who in reality…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Twelve

…Continued from How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Eleven

It was the start to an amazing weekend that led to an exciting couple of months!

The next day I was up at six am. I was so excited to go down and pick up the pup that I just didn’t know what to do with myself – so I went for a walk. I did some laundry. Finally, Ricky…

Continued from How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Ten

It hit me: he had bought the ring.

Of course, my mind started working in overdrive. He had something planned for the concert tonight. Ohmigosh – was he going to propose AT the concert? Did he talk to the people at the Myth? Please tell me he wasn’t going to do it…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Ten

…Continued from Chapter Nine

I couldn’t wait to bring home our little baby Lucy in four (very long) weeks.

I figured that the anticipation of my little pup was going to make those four weeks extra long – but it turned out that they flew by. Both Ricky and I were working six to seven days a week – it was the…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Nine

Continued from Chapter Eight

That night we made an executive decision – we were going to find a new home for Frank. Which proved to be much harder than I thought it would be.

The next morning was Sunday. I had to work – and at that point, our plan was to bring Frank back to the Humane Society so that he could…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Eight

Continued from Chapter Seven

It was the bliss before the storm – the storm that would put us through hell as we were forced to find a new home for Frank.

Soon, it was time for my surgery. That day was a blur. We drove down to the Mayo Clinic early in the morning. After checking in, they started me on an IV and…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: A Background Story

So I started writing Chapter Seven of How I Became Mrs. Galster today. I got to the point where I was about to write about why Ricky and I decided to get a dog right when we moved in together and the original dog we had – Frank – when I realized a little back story was necessary. And the back story kind of turned into it’s own post. SO: here’s the story that goes behind my fear of being home alone as well as why I have a bad ass security system, sleep with a taser next to my bed and…

What Do You Do When You Don't Understand God's Ways?

 

Sometimes when we are going through in life, we just can't see our way out. It gets hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Just remember that God loves you and He has a purpose and plan for your life. Find comfort in these scriptures and believe that God will see you through.

 

Isaiah 55:8-9 (NLT)

How I Became Mrs. Galster - Chapter Six

(Continued from Chapter Five)

A month later, we were scheduled to see the doctor that would eventually be the reason this baby is in my belly. I just didn’t know it yet.

During that month I didn’t really tell anyone what we had going on with the whole doctor situation. Sure, my mom knew about it. But I figured that most people wouldn’t…

How I became Mrs. Galster: chapter five

I get a lot of questions that centralize around one BIG question: how I met my husband. So I’m chronicling the year long journey I made from single city gal to married and pregnant wifey. Once a week I’ll post a chapter of our story – enjoy!

So I took that for a yes.

We continued at our lovey dovey pace for another month. We were absolutely inseparable, outside of work we were always together. We rotated staying at our respective homes, I was basically living…

What Do You Wanna Be When You Grow Up?

That was the question I asked 25 Grade 2 students this morning. And I got a gamut of answers, “A businessman, a lawyer, a nurse, a doctor, a spy like my mom (hmmm okay), an opera singer (yes I laughed too), a

celebrity (what career is that exactly?), a baseball player, a hockey

player, go into my daddy’s business, a JUGGLER.” OK great answers! Yes,…

Saying, “I Love You”

I LOVE YOU. Three simple words. Easy to say. Not often said.

saying i love you

I’ll never forget when my husband, (then boyfriend at the time), told me he loved me for the very first time. We had been dating about 10 weeks, and I was leaving the next day on an already planned backpacking

trip through Europe with a girlfriend. We had just finished a romantic

dinner, and he dropped me off…

Intrauterine Insemination didn't work, starting to doubt that we will ever have a third child but here we go again....

Intrauterine Insemination was not successful this month, well when I say not successful, it did make me ovulate well, but no pregnancy. I took it really hard this month, hence not writing this until day 6 of my next cycle. I sort of crumbled, but with the help of my amazing hubby and fab friend I am back on track.



This weekend I think when I crumbled I accepted the fact that it may never happen for us and if it doesn't I am already blessed with 2 great boys. It maybe just wasn't meant… Continue

Wish me Luck - HCG shot yesterday

This month we have progressed onto the Ovulation Induction with the HCG shot and then artificial insemination (sure takes the passion out of it all :) ) .

I had my HCG shot yesterday and then today is the day for the artificial insemination. Really nervous about it. Just wanting a positive result this month.

Any support, tips or advice would be appreciated.

Beautiful Trying to Conceive Poem......

We are at the moment trying to conceive our third child - we have been trying for over a year. We are seeing a fertility specialist to help us.



I came accross this poem the other day and wanted to share it with you. Sending baby dust to anyone else trying to conceive.



I wished upon a star…

I closed my eyes and prayed,

I threw a shiny penny,

into a well each day.

The same little wish was wished,

upon my birthday cake

I asked the Lord… Please… Continue
