What Cycle Am I On?

Someone asked me today 
what number cycle we are on...
All I could do was stare back at them 
with a blank expression. 
I. have. no. clue. 
You see after so many years 
and so many cycles your mind goes foggy. 
I think every time a cycle works I 
instantly loose count 
but then the pregnancy ends 
and I am thrown back in the sea of 
what seems like endless cycles. 
some of them lasting 90 days 
some only 20. 
It's like being picked up by 
a tornado and then being slammed back 
down in a very unfamiliar place. 

With a little digging through my blog
I've come to the conclusion that we 
are currently in the 2ww of cycle.. 
12! 

That's a big number. 
I hope it doesn't get any bigger. 

Today is 8dpo 
and Ovia says I have 6 more days 
until I can test!
Exactly 1 week before Christmas 
we will know the fate of cycle 12

Dear Santa, 
Please bring me a BFP followed by 
an uneventful, yet joyful pregnancy 
followed by the safe delivery 
of our healthy rainbow baby!! 
Thanks, 
Alexis

Facebook Vs. Instagram

It's been 3 whole weeks since I said 
sayonara to the ole FB.. 
I remember when I joined back in like 08
My dad had joined and had 
convinced me to give it a shot. 
Back in the day I had a Myspace. 
But that fell off for me the year I went 
to AI for college. I just wasn't into it anymore. 
Facebook was a whole new world 
pictures and posts and birthday reminders. 
It was a fun social outlet 
to help keep up with friends 
and family that you didn't see often enough. 
But as social media began to grow 
so did the drama and the controversy
over everything. . . 
people began using Facebook as a 
clothing line for their dirty laundry. 
It's like nothing was private anymore
Modesty in people had dissipated. 
the ugly world was spreading 
its hate all over one website.   
There are a few reasons I decided 
to leave FB. 
One being the controversy.
certain topics get me fired up. 
and to me voicing my view wont 
do anything but fuel peoples fire. 
It's strange to me how 
a human can find themselves so safe 
behind the keys of a computer. 
A false account created
to protect their identity
but also to let them say hurtful 
and judgmental things to people 
they may or may not have ever met. 
People are mean. 
and social platforms like FB
are the ones that keep them going. 
I mean its all about the money right?
and to get the money you need drama. 
The second reason I left was 
the slue of pregnancy posts I was 
seeing. Not necessarily just announcements 
but people who rely fully on government aid 
talking about adding to their family that they 
already struggle to take care of. 
In my opinion just to receive a little more money. 
It's sickening. 
It infuriates me. 
& I was tired of 
leaving that site everyday with so much hate 
in my bones. So much anxity over 
stupid shit that I have no control over. 
Then I started thinking about how much 
of my day was spent scrolling, 
If I was a lunch I'd scroll, bored? scroll. 
trying to fall asleep scroll. 
It was just stupid to me how much 
time was wasted on something 
that never made me happy. 
So I did it. 
I deleted Facebook. 
and I am happier than I've ever been. 
I find myself reading more current events. 
and paying attention more, you know to the real world. 
shit that is going on right here right now. 
Now Instagram is a different story.
I am a picture person. 
I have always been. 
In my spare time I love to do photography.
Intsta is the perfect spot for photo lovers. 
It's a place I can share my passions. 
it's limited on words and drama 
and I can follow who I want 
and not be forced to see what Sally's brothers sisters 
nephews aunts cousin Sam posted 3 days ago about 
the fight they had with Fred. 
I hated that shit. 
worst part of Facebook 
besides the lack of privacy was 
seeing shit you just didn't want to see. 
So Instagram is where I am 
it's where I'll stay. 
If you'd like to follow along 
you can find me here :)
I am private so if you send me a request 
and I don't accept it send me an email
(alexiswarricksemail@gmail.com) 
and I will get you added :)

Donuts? or Doughnuts?


What is it with those rings of sugary goodness?!
as of late I am addicted to Pink donuts...
Not a good addiction my friends. 
Not good at all. 
Is it doughnut or donuts?! 
I feel like I've struggled with this 
all my life (all my English teacher out there 
help a sister out!) 
I'm just going to go with donuts 
because if you separate the letters it 
really says Do Nuts.. 
so lets Do Nuts
It's really quite bizarre actually
I have been a salt person 
since I was a toddler. 
Put a snickers or a hard pretzel 
with mustard in front of me 
I'm going for the pretzel. 
But I'm thinking now if you 
put a pink donut and a pretzel with mustard
in front of me I would probably 
tackle you for the pink doughnut and 
then hold you at fork point demanding 
the location of the box of remaining donuts..
I wonder if they put coke in them?
or some kind of addictive additive?
Dinner of champions 

So a few nights ago I am taking a picture 
with Scott's phone and I see the 
most amazing picture ever 
of a box of donuts..
Voodoo donuts to be exact!
never in my life have I heard of 
these sinful little suckers 
until that moment.. 
and now its all I hear, read and see! 
Voodoo donuts are taking over america
one doughnut junkie at a time!
Yes please 
I really wish blogger had emojies..
anyways back to the voodoo goodness
I've yet to try them but I am 
assuming they will be worth the wait!! 

Until next time!
Doughnut cheers!

 I know the title sounded like the start 
of a bad joke but  nothing else came to mind, 
This is whats still in my phone.. 
Halloween and 3252456 cat pictures. 
There are about 12 videos 
but I am afraid my house would be 
burned to the ground if I shared those.. 
So you'll have to use your imagination. 
Stating the obvs... 
I  was a Ninja. 
Michelle was a Pirate.
Mike was a Pilot. 
& Scott was a Gangster. 
We went out to Jenn's dads  for 
his annual Halloween bash.
