I am participating in the Sockeroo, started by Kymberli at the Smartness.  To recap, we exchange socks with another blogger and write a post on the following topic:

 It has been roughly a year and a half since the last SITM Exchange. Reflect on the past 18 or so months – how has support from others, either in the blogosphere or otherwise, helped you?

I have been through a lot in the last 18 months.  Specifically, 3 failed IUI's, a failed IVF and a failed FET.  My family and friends have been as supportive as they can, but most of them really can't relate to what I've been through.  I can't even really confide in my husband about my feelings, because he doesn't really understand either and it upsets him to see me down in the dumps.  My only solace during this struggle has been my blog readers and message board friends.  You have been the only ones to really comfort me, console me, and not judge.  You have been my cheerleaders, confidantes, and companions while I've been going through these treatments, through all the ups and downs.  Most of my friends are part of the "Mommy club" and simply can't relate.  Or, worse, they leave me out of their plans because they don't think I want to be around kids.  You have been such a wonderful support system, which I will depend on for the indefinite future.  I wrote this post to tell you just how much I appreciate each and every one of you.  So, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Now, the goods!!  Preshus Me send me three pairs of AWESOME socks!!  Here's the fashion show:

First, a pair of cute striped kneesocks!  Adorbs!

 Next, the awesome argyles!

 Finally, the black bow!  Love these!  (Sorry for the action shot - not so good at the camera timer!)
Thanks Preshus Me!  You rock!


  1. Those are some bad ass socks!

  2. I'm sorry the past 18 months have been so hellish and I'm so very glad you have the ALI community to support you and some kick ass socks to remind you of that support.

  3. Awe, I was too late to sign up! Great socks!
    It is hard to look collectively at the last 18 months, I hope that well before the next 18 pass that you will bring home your baby.
