Hello September | A Cup Saved My Marriage?

Hello, Lovelies! Is it just me or did August go by super fast?! 

Oh and here is to me surviving my first month of blogging!!!! Thank you for reading, subscribing, and being patient with me while I find my style of writing! THANK YOU <3

I was really nervous to tell anyone about my blog. You know how people can be rude, they doubt you, and you're afraid they will think your idea is stupid. It's a fear that I think everyone has when they put themselves out there and try something new. Luckily I've had a great support system from family, friends, and other bloggers I've met along the way this month!

A Cup Saved My Marriage??

Don't worry, Hesten and I are not on the verge of divorce, I just thought the click bait title was fitting. ;) 

I've been blessed to be Mrs. Ogden for a 1 year and 6 months! I could not have picked a better person to go through life with. I think every woman gets insecure, doesn't matter if you're Angelina Jolie, sometimes you just look at your  husband and think "Yep, you're crazy for picking me." haha. 

I never bring my insecure moments to his attention because, well he is a guy so he doesn't understand the random acts of emotions women go through. One day I had to work a 12 hour shift and it just wasn't a good day. I came home and our house was completely spotless, and he had dinner all figured out.. PIZZA! YAAS, after that rather difficult day, all I wanted was to eat my calories away. lol.. I went to open the cabinet where we keep our cups to make something to drink and there it was.... 

Hesten bought me a NEW cup...

A few days ago my FAVORITE cup in the house started leaking and I had to throw it away. (I know I'm not the only person in the world with a favorite cup in the house.) I didn't even say anything to him about it but I guess he saw my favorite cup in the trash and took it upon himself to buy me a new one. Like who does that??? Who notices something so little like that. He is the greatest, I swear. 

Note to husbands: Your wife is a rollercoaster of emotions and sometimes, all she needs is for you to notice something little and fix it without expecting anything in return.

I think everyone who reads my blog knows that we are in fact trying to conceive! I decided that I'd answer a couple questions I get asked the most regarding TTC.

1. When you find out that you are pregnant, how long will you wait until you tell anyone?
I would like to wait until we are out of the first trimester at least. Since I had a miscarriage, I don't want to put my family through that heartbreak again. Even though I was assured that I did nothing to cause my miscarriage, I still felt so much guilt. So yes, when I do get pregnant, I am going to wait a little longer before we announce.

What happens if you don't get pregnant?
Yes, people do actually ask this... If we never get pregnant again, I think we would eventually start looking at adoption. That is a long ways down the road, we have only been try for 8 months! 

How do you handle seeing negative pregnancy tests month after month?

I always tell myself, when it is meant for us to be parents, that is when it will happen. Our Journey is all in God's hands. He is always in control. I pray a lot and I try to not talk myself into thinking I am pregnant before I test so that way my hopes aren't high. PMS symptoms are very similar to pregnancy symptoms so it is easy to convince yourself you're pregnant when you're not.

Car Business Stories? What do you think?

I have worked as a Business Development Agent for over three years for Mclarty Daniel in Bentonville. (Come see us! lol). I know a lot of my coworkers read my blog, hi MD fam!!! My job is not to sell the cars but to sell our dealership to our customers who are shopping online and over the phone. It might look easy, and sometimes it is, but when 5 other dealerships are getting the same lead and calling the same customer, things get a little competitive, I LOVE IT! Also, don't be afraid of car salesmen. They don't get an hourly wage, so if they come off as a little pushy, that's because they're trying to support their families just like you are! 

Being a woman in the car business can be very challenging. I have put myself in a position where I work around people with all sorts of personalities but I don't think I'd pick another career if I had the opportunity! They've also taught me a lot about myself and life in general. I probably wouldn't be as successful as I am if it wasn't for my co-workers and my Managers for teaching me the ropes of sales. You really have to learn not to take everything that people say or do to heart in this type of business.

 I have a lot of stories about the car business and I have been thinking about writing about them monthly. What do you think? Let me know! 

So if you are not a personal friend of mine on Facebook you don't know that my husband has an opportunity to work with the Arkansas CW! Being the entrepreneur that he is, he believes this will lead to great business contacts and would be a great experience! So please go vote for him!

I believe that's all I want to share with you guys for my Hello September update. Thank you for reading and don't forget to stalk me on social media!  


  1. Hahahaha "the click bait title was fitting" You're funny.
    You sound like such a happy couple. Welcome to the blogging world.

  2. Nice title, got me there - but I do not consider myself a roller-coaster of emotions as you put it. It is all about self-discipline, which I think is incredibly important no matter what gender.

    1. Really?!?! You've never been SO HAPPY and than so UPSET all in the span of 5 minutes? lol. I guess I shouldn't speak for all women. ;)

  3. Your blog is beautiful!!!!! I am a blogger blogger (that sounds confusing, but I know you know what I am saying!). Congratulations on surviving your first month :D I'll be back, and maybe one day we can work together!

    1. I'd love that. Thank you! I'll check your blog out for sure!

  4. I hope things are going well with the baby making mission! I really enjoy reading this post, it's very entertaining and lively!

  5. Congrats on one month! You are so blessed with your hubby!
