Sound the horns and start the drums! It’s time for all the fanfare that a Queen for a day would get! (wait…does a Queen for a day get fanfare?) I say she does! And this Queen is ready for her tiarra (which is still sitting on a shelf in my living room after my wedding two years ago that I can’t seem to part with), and a nice comfy chair to sit in to put her feet up so others can serve her….I sound delusional you say? FINE! I guess you are right. But I still get to FEEL like a Queen for a day since today is FINALLY my SITS day! The day I have been waiting for for about a year!
Welcome my SITStas! I hope you enjoy yourself today as you browse around my little world here at After The Alter. For those of you who don’t know what SITS is…The Secret is in The Sauce.. it is a group of women bloggers dedicated to supporting one another by leaving comments. And I am not sure there is anything bloggers like more than comments is there? I know I certainly like to feel the love! So I hope for all the new people visiting today, you find you like it here. If you really like it here then I’d love if you became a “google friend” by clicking over there to the right, and if you REALLY like it here I’d love for you to join my blog frog community (which you can also do over to the right). There, I am really trying to build a community that focuses on the joys of marriage. I think it can be a great place for people to come together and share! On top of those two ways to get involved in this great marriage community I also have an After The Alter Facebook Fan Page! Here I put up each days new post, as well as post a question of the day to my readers. I also encourage those to blog about marriage to share their stories here also!
Now let me tell you a little about myself and my blog. My name is Jen and I am a 29 year old (Turning 30 this June! Yikes!), work at home wife, who dreams of being a stay at home mom. As you will see After The Alter is spelled with an “e” in alter. That is because this blog is about my life after being married as well as all the changes that go along with it! And boy what changes have come during my almost two years as a married woman. On June 14, 2008 I married my best friend. On this blog he is known as Captain Awesome. We are college sweethearts, and have been together nine years total, and married for almost two. We have our beautiful 3.5 lb Pomeranian Tinkerbell, and we live in a townhouse in Long Island. I am originally from Pennsylvania, and you may just happen to see a bunch of posts about my dislike for Long Island…but as The Captain constantly reminds me I have been here since 1998 so I should get used to it! I pretty much blog about everything from my love for Martoonis (aka Martinis), to picking on Captain Awesome, to Wifey 101 posts about marriage. Pretty much anything that comes into my head…goes back out onto this blog.
It was tough to pick 3 of my favorite posts, since there is so much I want to share with you. But in the spirit of following the rules here goes!
I guess we can start off with a piece I wrote on our 1 Year Anniversary! One Year Down and Many More to Go! It’s hard for me to put in words how much I love my husband, and how blessed I am to have him in my life, but at least this can give you a little idea about us.
This next piece isn’t necessarily a happy piece, but it does say a lot about where my blog went shortly after our 1 year anniversary. This post about Our Loss, began a series of posts about my miscarriage. I wanted to be open and honest about it. From there my blog kind of turned into a Trying to Conceive blog, since I began a long journey of trying to reach my dream of becoming a mother.
The good news is that after 7 months of TTC post miscarriage Captain Awesome and I DID conceive, and we have a little miracle on the way. I am happy to report I am about 10weeks pregnant! And here is my big blog announcement about my pregnancy: We Have A Bean!
So thanks for stopping by today! I hope you choose to stick around!

Happy SITS Day^^ It’s time for a bodacious party I think. Enjoy it!
Congratulations on your SITS day and on your pregnancy!
congratulations on your SITS day! and your pregnancy, that’s so exciting–my blog topic for tomorrow is all about the things you might not know about pregnancy and labor/delivery, so you might be able to find out something…interesting ;).
i was also sorry to read about your miscarriage–i had one when my husband and i first got married, and it was devastating. i wish i’d had a blog then; the recovery might have been a little easier. anyway, sorry for the long comment and have an awesome day!
I’d love to read about things I might not know (I think lol)I am sure there is ALOT that I don’t know! lol
I found blogging such a comfort during that rough time, and it connected me to so many others who have been through the same thing. so that helped me alot. I appreciate the long comment! 😉 My favorite!
Hey gorgeous! Congrats on the little baby in the future! You will LOVE being a mama!
Happy SITS day!! 🙂 I’m a new follower!
Happy SITS day!! I’m so glad you explained why the “e” instead of the “a”!!
Congratulations on the Bean!! I’ve visited you before and read your posts… so now I’m off to catch up. 🙂
Ya I have to explain it or I get comments that I spelled it wrong! lol I guess I should expect that though. Thanks for the congrats and thanks for reading!
I am so, so happy you are featured. Enjoy the day ;), xxxMsBabyPlan
Happy SITS Day! Following you now!
Congrats on SITS day!
Congratulations on being Queen for the Day and, most especially, for The Bean! I loved being pregnant even though my knees and ankles were approximately the same circumference and my body temperature was pretty close to volcanic … but hey, don’t let me scare you! 🙂
I hope you enjoy your SITS day as much as I enjoyed reading your blog!
So much to look forward to! hahaha 😉 Be sure to hold me to this when I complain in the future, but I am looking forward to all that comes with this blessing!

I’m so pleased to hear about your ‘bean’, I wish you a healthy, happy pregnancy. I’m off to read more about your story.
Yup the tiarra sits on a shelf in my front living room! lol (along w/ my garder) because I couldn’t bear to send them to the attic! lol Thanks for reading!
Happy SITS Day! Yay! I think it’s great that you are recording what’s going on in your life. I’ve been married for 24 years and have 5 kids. I wish I had kept even a paper journal of life back then. You’ll cherish all these posts one day.
Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy.
Happy SITS Day! I love the concept of your blog. There’s so much you can share about what we think marriage is and what it really turns into. A big congrats on being pregnant. Can’t wait to read future posts.

Happy SITS Day!! A lot of your blog resonates with me – I have suffered (2) miscarriages and all the trauma that goes with it. Much congrats on your news – I know how much it must mean to you!
I’m so sorry to hear about your losses. It really is a terrible thing. I hate to know that others have had to go through it too. Just not fair. Thank you for the congrats.
Happy SITS Day!
Looking forward to checking out your blog properly.
Oh and congrats on the pregnancy 🙂
I have been married 8 years this week and I’m STILL trying to figure out how to be the best wife I can be. I think this is as good as I am going to get. 🙂
Congrats on your “bean!”
I love that you are “the work at home wife!” i too work from home! 🙂 I love it! I like to work on being a good wife, but these days poor Captain awesome isn’t getting my 100%..but I guess that comes with the territory when preggers! lol
Happy SITS day, and a big congratulations on your little one!
happy SITS day and a huge congrats on your bean! 🙂
Congratulations on your SITSday and even MORE congratulations on the pregnancy!!!! What an exciting time for you!
Happy SITS day!
Congratulations on your SITS day – and your little bean! I’ve had a similar experience (a miscarriage followed by another pregnancy – ours was identical twins, who were born 4 weeks ago!), and I think it’s wonderful that you’re so candid about your experience…I know it’s an intensely personal thing, but in a way I wish more women were open about a loss, because I never felt more alone than when I went through it.
I follow the preosuar blog! Congrats on the twins! You are so blessed! Holding our little miracle in my arms seems so far away right now! When it first happened for me I googled and felt very alone. I had no idea what to expect. But once I blogged so many people contacted me an dopened up and it helped me so much. Thank you for the congrats!
Oooooh, you’re having a very good day, month, and year! You must be living right, girl! Congratulations, and all the best for you, Captain Awesome, and the little one!
Congrats on your SITS day hun! (And 30 wont be that bad, it’ll be just like 29.)
Hello Lovely lady…. Happy SITS day to you and enjoy the fanfare….
Congrats on being the FB today and congrats on the little one, that is awesome! 😀
Congratulations all the way from Italy on your SITS Day.
Congrats on your pregnancy and marriage. Happy SITS DAY! You are probably due in December. I will be ten weeks Sunday and I am due December 18th.
Yup we are very close! I am due December 11th! I hope you are feeling well!!!
Woot woot! Congratulations on your SITS Day, Queen Mrs.! May your day be grand and may you bask in the afterglow for a long time to come.
Wow! Congrats on your first year of marital bliss and your bean!! Enjoy your day of love!

I will definitely stop by! I love reading blogs that are similar to mine! 🙂 Thanks for visiting! I’ll take you up on that latte! 😉
I’m so happy for you 2 and your little “bean” (I checked out that post and it really does look like a bean! lol)
Happy SITS Day! Your kid will have lots of fun with that fancy crown of yours one day 🙂
Happy SITS day!! Fabulous blog. And cogratulations on your little bean. That’s wonderful!
Happy SITS Day! And congratulations on your “little bean”. I have two running around my house, and I distinctly remember when they were, in fact, nothing more than beans. I wish I would have blogged when I was pregnant, so I could have a journal of my experience. Now all I remember is feeling crappy, gaining a ton of weight and praying for the doctor to take them out so I could once again see my toes.
Many blessings to you and your growing family 🙂
I can see where the hard stuff could stick into your head! lol I am happy I have this blog to chronicle this journey! I think my little one will be happy someday too to read it! Thanks for visiting!
I’m so happy about your “bean”. I know how awful it is when you loose one. When it finally does happen again, you spend the first few months praying that you don’t loose it, then once you can feel the movement you spend the remainder of your time poking to make sure it’s still moving! Everyone told me I was driving my baby crazy!
Good luck with this, and don’t worry too much – elastic will be your friend for the next little while~
Happy SITs day!
I think I will be nervous the entire time…I guess something to look forward to! I guess we just know too much these days. Ignorance can be bliss right? lol
yay elastic! 🙂
That is so cool! Congrats! My husband and I had two miscarriages before being blessed with our daughter. Hard to go through, I know!

Congrats on your pregnancy! I’m so jealous that you are starting to blog now– blogs didn’t really exist when I got married and I was clueless about them when I had my oldest.
Make the most of it and congrats again!
Yaaaayyy!! Congrats on the little bean! And almost through the first trimester — woohoo! 😀
Nice to meet you, and happy SITS day
Congratulations on your pregnancy..and on your SITS day! I love your blog as I am a week away from celebrating my 3 yr anniversary and still consider myself a newly wed.
Congrats on your SITS Day!!!

Found you through SITS. I’m loving your blog! I just followed you on twitter and google friend connect.
Happy SITS Day to you! Also, congrats on your pregnancy! Always such an exciting time! I really enjoyed visiting your blog, and I just HAD to go visit the page about your adorable Tinkerbell. I think Pomeranians are such cute little dogs. She does look like she would be a little Diva! 🙂
Pomeranians really are the best! 😉 we are best friends even though she’s a little Diva! lol
Happy SITS Day!! Congrats on your little pooh bear!

As the mother of a 12 year old and 15 year old and soon to be celebrating my 20th wedding anniversary, congrats on your marriage, your pregnancy, and your SITS day. I am new to blogging but really enjoying it.
Oh oh oh! Congrats to you! One of my friends is 14 weeks pregnant and I promise that this will be the best time ever!
Happy SITS Day! 🙂
Happy SITS day! Best wishes for your pregnancy!!
I enjoyed reading your post. You are blessed to be so happily married and expecting a baby. A good book you might want to read is “On Becoming Baby Wise.”
Happy SITS Day! I know what you mean about Long Island. I used to live in NY and moved recently to MD. I hated it up there. Hope it gets better for ya. Congratulations on your little one! :o)
Congraulations on your SITS day, but more importantly, congratulations on your pregnancy! I wish you a healthy pregnancy and all the joy in the world.
Happy SITS Day! I’ve really enjoyed reading about you, Captain America and your bean! Congrats on the bean/Pooh Bear!
Oh, and your bodily functions rules post? Totally made me ROFL! I agree though, you just don’t intentionally do that in front of the one you love. Or anyone, for that matter. Now accidentally? Yeah, that sometimes happens. At those times, I agree with “P” – Fart and move on.
congrats on the new ‘bean’ to come! Love the tiara for your SITS day…we celebrate 19 yrs this June and it just gets better and better….
Happy SITS day!!! Congrats! Can’t wait to read more! 😀
Congrats on your SITS day and the pregnancy! Such and exciting time for you!

Happy SITS day soon to be momma! And super congrats on your little bean in the oven. I’ve got a 6.5 month old bean myself. I kinda get jealous of others who are pregnant. It was such a blessing of an experience.
I think the grass is always greener on the other side! Right now I am so nervous about things going well that I just want time to move faster!! but I am sure that sentiment will change very quickly! Enjoy your little one!
Happy SITS day! Congrats on your pregnancy and best wishes with all that is coming~
Happy, Happy Times!! Enjoy every moment~ All my best, Theresa
Congrats on being a SITS girl today, and congrats on the bean!
