Im a CopyCait

I know......cheesey title......but I thought it was cute!

Yes, I am following everyone else and joining the 30 Day Blog Challange that is being hosted by Katie. This seems to have come at the perfect time since I wont be able to blog about our infertility for several weeks. As I mentioned a couple posts back, Husband and I are trying new things during this time so I figured it would be fun to join this challange- but I will also be mixing in posts about what we are up to :)

I have to catch up a bit, so I am going to cram the first 3 days into this post........

First, introduce yourself with a recent picture and 15 facts:


**This is not the best picture, but its the most recent one I have of just me (it was taken in Vegas)


Fifteen Facts- I am going to do short ones since I am trying to catch up:

I have a unique name- Caitrin, I am 23 years old, Husband and I have been married for 1 year and 1 month, we have been TTC for almost that long, I have to have a cup of coffee or iced tea everyday (caffeine!), I was born in California, but have lived in Texas for the past 17 years, I am the only child from my mom and dad, but I have siblings from both sides, I watch waaaayyy too much tv, I have to plan everything in advance, I hate to exercise, I love to travel, I am addicted to shopping, and I am fairly new to the blogger world but have loved every minute of it so far!

2nd- Meaning Behind Your Blog Name:

As you already know, I love shopping! So when I was trying to come up with a name I knew I wanted to incorporate that somehow. This blog was started as a way to discuss our infertility struggle and our long journey towards parenthood. I began thinking of names that included shopping and babies and then one night came up with this!

3rd- Your First Love

Quite a few people have debated on what exactly this one is supposed to be about, so I am going the easy route and using a person in my life- Husband :) Since we met in highschool I didnt really have the chance to truly love anyone else before him. I had said it to other boyfriends, but never knew what it really meant. He is my best friend and has supported me unconditionally for the last 6 years- and I know he will continue to do so for many more!

Now, hopefully, I can keep up with this challange everyday! I am so excited to meet new bloggers and learn more about the ones I already know!

I wanna join in too! Even though I'll be gone from the blogging world for a week while getting married!

Love the blog name! And I too was confused about "first loves". I mean I love my parents and my grandparents, but romantic love was Fred. It's interesting to read what people wrote!
