This month really hit me hard. While I understand that it will happen when it is meant to happen, for whatever reason it was harder to accept this month than before. I do have to put out there a huge thank you to all of the ladies who commented on my last post (and my friends outside the blogosphere) with encouragement and understanding – it really meant a lot.
So, currently the plan is to start testing at the end of this week and go at it again. I know that I’m meant to be a mother…I just know it.
Valentine’s day is not a holiday that Lori and I tend to get wrapped up in. We show each other our love on a regular basis, so the need to shower each other with attention on a specific day is not there. However, this year we planned a little mountain get away for Valentine’s day to either celebrate that there will be a new addition to the family or get away from it all if there wasn’t the BFP we were hoping for.
We decided to head up to a place in Green Mountain Falls, CO called Lakeside Cottages. The website is REALLY cute – the cabins look secluded and adorable. We paid for the Romance Package, which included dinner, breakfast, champagne and chocolates.
Lesson Learned, don’t believe what you see on the internet:
- The cabin was less of a cabin and more of a house.
- It was DEFINITELY not secluded.
- The hot tub was private in that it was for our cabin only, but it was on the front porch and the cabin was right on a road, so I wouldn’t call it private.
- Not that it even mattered because it smelled of chlorine so bad that it made our eyes burn and we never got into it. Also wouldn’t have mattered if it was for our cabin only because there was NO ONE ELSE in the cottages.
- The shower curtain had mildew on it – not mildew STAINS that are just discoloration, but actual mildew that wiped off if you touched it.
- The fireplace wasn’t real. There were 2 little silver cans that you lit and put into the fireplace area and covered with fake logs. It burned for 3 hours.
- The breakfast was 2 bagels, 4 pieces of bacon, yogurt, and fruit. The fruit was FROZEN – as in you couldn’t eat it. And of course, when it thawed, it was mushy and disgusting.
- The dinner wasn’t dinner – it included the ENTREES only at the restaurant across the street – it cost us an extra $50 bucks for appetizer/dessert and tip.
All in all, we had a great weekend because we were together, but it was definitely something we could have stayed home and do. Basically we spent the weekend snuggling on the couch watching TV and eating leftovers – and it cost us $380!
