It's almost summer in Milwaukee

Despite the rain and cold temperatures this week I am looking forward to summer in Milwaukee. I just looked up a couple of our favorite "festivals" in Milwaukee and I started to get excited.
Jazz in the Park starts on Thursday, June 7th. Have you ever gone? If not you must! Pack your own dinner or buy dinner when you get down there. There is nothing like sitting in a park in the middle of the city with your friends and family, enjoying some wine and great music. But before Jazz......Riversplash will take place June 1,2 and 3 this year. This festival is our official "Its finally summer in Milwaukee" festival. It's free, it's fun so come on down!
There there is Summerfest, 3rd of July fireworks, Germanfest, Festa Italiana, State Fair and so much more. I will try to get a calendar up and talk about all the different events! I'm so excited...... oh and the farmers market will open soon too!!

Dang it

Not pregnant this month. I'm ok, I thought I would be hysterical but I'm not. I think at this point in the game I have realized that this whole plan in in God's hands. We are depending on science in this whole process but ultimately, God is in control. So we are onto the next month. I am just not looking forward to all the hormones and needles!!

Celebrities that are or have dealt with fertility problems

I am so thankful to see more and more celebrities revealing that they have had problems with getting pregnant. I'm not thankful they had to experience the heartache of trying to have children; I am thankful that they are going public with their stories. They are in the spotlight and if they disucuss their fertility issues it creates more awareness of a large problem.
Some celebrities that have relvealed such problems:
Dixie Chicks
Trista and Ryan Sutter
Cindy Margolis
Courtney and David Arquette
Angela Bassett
Christie Brinkley
Jane Seymour
If you know any others, let me know!

Date night

My husband and I had a much needed date night this past Friday. He has wanted to go to the Daniel M Soref Planetarium for a while now and I have been craving sushi so we decided to combine both in one night. We had reservations at Izumis at 6:00 p.m. and were seated right away. We both ordered some wine and made our selections; Take sushi combination for me and a Godzilla roll for my husband. Izumis (I wanted to post their website but it's not running right now) is our favorite sushi restaurant in Milwaukee. We have always had great service and fantastic food for a good price. When I first met my husband he had never tried sushi. For the past 4 years he has been taking baby steps and he has come a long way. He enjoys Izumis because they have a nice variety of Japanese food. After dinner we headed towards the Milwaukee Public Museum (the Planetarium is attached to the museum). We got our tickets, popcorn and candy then headed to our seats. The "feature" was Wonders of the Universe. The first part of the show displayed what is currently visible in the Milwaukee sky. Then the feature takes the viewer in space through the eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope and explains how galaxies are formed and goes into detail about stars, the constellations, planets etc. I really learned a lot during this section of the feature. The show is only 45 minutes long and costs $8/adult. We will defiantly go back to see Stars of the Pharaohs and make a visit to the IMAX which is showing Roving Mars and the Deep Sea.
