Five on Friday - Thankful Edition

Hope everyone had a fabulous & happy Thanksgiving!!  I decided to make my Friday five about what I am thankful for!



One. Family & Friends
I have so much to be thankful for this year. First and foremost my amazing husband, family, friends, and of course, Frankie.  I am sooo lucky to have such a close family & group of friends.  This year we got to spend a good amount of time at all three places that we were invited to for Thanksgiving, and me and my 3 J's are all getting together today for lunch and I cant wait to reunite with all of us together again.  Its very rare that we are all home & able to get together anymore, such a blessing.  I am so thankful for my supportive husband, who has been so wonderful on this journey that we have been on trying to get pregnant. He is truly my best friend & our relationship is built on a very strong foundation that has only gotten stronger over these last few months.

my little fam!

Two.  Health & Health Insurance
Being happy & healthy is such a blessing.  I have no real medical problems, even after our accident I have minimal pain & I'm so lucky for that.  Very thankful to the doctors and physical therapists who helped me recover.  Health insurance is a huge topic right now & even if my rates go up because I'm healthy, I really don't care. I've reaped the benefits of great insurance many times over the last couple years. Between the surgery that I just had to the knee surgery I had a year and a half ago.  I will pay what I have to because I've needed it so many times.

5 broken bones (2 metatarsals in the foot, 1 in the ankle, tibial plateau in my knee, & my hip), 2 screws
and a whole ton of physical therapy later, I'm better!

Three.  Modern Medicine
This kind of goes along with health, but never have I been so thankful as I am today for the advances in modern medicine in regards to fertility.  It's so amazing what they can do these days & I'm so grateful for my awesome doctor & his team.  They've been so awesome throughout this entire process & I can't thank them enough.  I'm sure I will one day be even more thankful to them in the future!

Four.  The things I take for Granted Every Day
From the extras like cable & internet, satellite radio, a nice car, a motorcycle, all of those extras, to the basics like heat, electricity, running water, & food on the table.  There are people all over the world, even in our own community who don't have these things & my heart breaks for them.  I can't imagine what it's like to be hungry & not have food to eat or to be cold & not have a warm place to go.  Joe and I are both very lucky to have good jobs that help us live the life that we live today.


Five.  The Little Things
My bed, my dog, getting a massage, nail polish, taking a ride on the bike, jamming to my favorite songs, sunsets, sunrises, the millions of stars we get to see out at our property, my closet full of clothes, my favorite pair of jeans, the little things in life that make us a tad bit happier when we really think about them. I'm very thankful for those things too... thanks to this article below for helping me reflect on what we really have in life & why we should cherish & be thankful for it.

Stocking Stuffers!



I'm linking up with Cheers Y'all  and Down with the Dearmores for this fabulous Christmas Link Up!

Stocking stuffers are seriously one of my favorite parts about Christmas!!  So many fun things out there that are perfect for stockings!!  This link up couldnt  have come at a better time either, my mom and I hit Target on Saturday for some stocking stuffer shopping & we did amazing!!  Well, actually my mom did amazing, she spent $700 on stocking stuffers... at TARGET!!  She seriously probably had 200+ items, maybe more.  Between toothbrushes, pajamas, trinkets, candy, and everything in between, she killed it in the stocking stuffer department!!   I ended up with a few things for Joe, we do small stockings at home & my mom does the big stockings Christmas Day when we go over to open gifts.  Here are some of my favorite potential stocking stuffers for her & for him!!




BareMinerals/Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Hot To Trot / essie holiday collection kit- Limited Edition! / Wine Wipes (Set of 3) / Apricot Lane :: Peoria, IL 2012: Shop Now / Vino2Go Business Black / Best Stocking Stuffers 2012, Top Inexpensive Ideas | UncommonGoods

Im so in love with the Vino2Go cup & the beer version for the guys (or girls)!  It would be perfect for BYOB events!!   I also love the Whiskey Stones & Wine Pearls.  I hate putting ice cubes in my wine, these are perfect for keeping the flavor of your whiskey or wine!!  

The Essie Holiday Collection is fab!  I love the multitude of colors, especially the mint!  I am also currently obsessed with the Bare Minerals Hot to Trot lip gloss kit, so many fab colors!!


Wall bottle opener / WORKING MAN'S HYGIENE KIT / WHISKEY STONES & GIFT SET / Search results | uncommongoods.com / Dollar Shave Club The 4x Monthly Razor Membership / Brew2Go Bla

If you follow Little Baby Garvin then you already know about Dollar Shave Club.  I got this for Joe last year & I even use it now.  It is such a great price & such a great razor I cannot sing praises enough for it.  We use the $9 razor since Joe shaves his head & face I thought that would be the best investment for him & so far so good a year later!!

I also love the Working Mans Hygiene kit, it would make a nice pair with the Dollar Shave Club membership.  Lots of manly scents & personal hygiene items that will really make them feel like men!! 

Thanks again to our wonderful hosts for this fun holiday link-up!!

Our Weekend According to Instagram

I had a weekend full of photos, if you follow me on IG (@lenaridley) you would see that I was kind of a serial picture poster.



It started Friday afternoon with this picture of my wishbone necklace, which if you've been reading along (read original post here) you would know that this is a Good Luck Fertility necklace that was given to me by a sweet friend of ours & her boyfriend. I’ve been wearing it since the IUI procedure for a boost of luck!! Hope it pulls through for us!


what a sweet little face he has <3

Saturday morning started with snuggles with my little sweet potato Frankie. Joe had to work so I was up at the butt crack of dawn (5:45) and wasn't really able to go back to sleep so we went from the bed to the couch & relaxed & watched TV for a few hours in the morning before my mom picked me up for our normal Saturday routine of grocery shopping & lunch.


seriously how awesome are these pillows!?

We decided to hit Target to get stocking stuffer shopping done & of course Target came through again as always in their dollar section with some adorable Christmas decorum. These pillows were $3 and the signs were $1. So cute, can’t wait to decorate on Friday!

so in love with this sweater in mint!

Saturday night we went out with some friends for dinner then came back to our house for a couple rounds of Liars Dice. I got my mint version of the Emily Maynard sweater in the mail this week from Apricot Lane. I ordered it back in August so I was pretty pumped when it came in this week. So in love with it, it’s so warm & comfortable, I wore it with leggings and I seriously felt like I was pajamas with a cozy robe on.

so much truth to this statement!

Sunday morning I found this perfect quote for what’s been going on in life as of late. Things have never really come easy for me or Joe, it seems like we constantly have a streak of bad luck, or an obstacle in the way of whatever it is that we’re trying to achieve, but I swear it has made us so much stronger in the long run.  Now we're just counting down the days!!

adorable!

While perusing the interwebs Sunday morning & catching up on the DVR I sipped Glazed Chocolate Donut coffee out of my adorable new Cantina Mugs from CB2 (thanks to Stephanie @ Newlyweds North for sharing these on her blog last week). They’re so cute & only about $4 a cup! I had to have them!

LOVE my new table!! 

And last but not least, what I waited all weekend for, my BRAND NEW dining room table! It’s so perfect & gorgeous! It’s one of our only pieces of furniture that isn't a handmedown or something that we grew up with. I consider it to be our first official piece of nice furniture for our future home. We took a quick trip up to Pier 1 in Joliet to pick it up, I also bought those amazing mercury glass candle sticks that I’m using for a center piece. I can’t wait to add some fresh greens from the tree farm this weekend. Definitely need a table runner of some sort too.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!

Five on Friday

One. The Appointment
I figured I would roll the details of our appointment in with my Friday favorites because it is the most important thing to happen to me, not just this week, but of my entire life pretty much.  Monday we had an ultrasound, Dr. G said that I had a really nice follicle & that we would schedule the IUI for Wednesday to give it a chance to grow just a bit more.  That night we went home, and relaxed, woke up at midnight & Joe gave me the hormone injection, it wasn't bad, but I'm glad that he was the one doing it rather than me.  Not sure I could've brought myself to do it.  Wednesday we headed back down to P-town & had the procedure done.  It only took a couple of minutes, & the pain was minor.  Now we have to wait a couple of weeks before we go to the hospital to get pregnancy test done via blood draw.  Fingers, toes, legs, crossed.  Hands folded, eyes closed, baby dust sprinkled, rabbits foot rubbed, etc!!

Two. Merry Christmas (present) to me!
I've been eyeing up this Torrance Dining Collection from Pier 1 for a couple months now.  I love the bench style seating & the mahogany finish.  I pinned it a few months ago & decided just to peek at it again last weekend.  I noticed that it happened to be on a pretty decent sale so I mentioned it to Joe.  He said... "go ahead and order it"... and I immediately did... while we were out to dinner, I was so excited.  Wednesday when we got home from Peoria the benches were waiting for us on our back porch & the table & two chairs will be ready for pick up today!  I decided on two benches and two chairs rather than just the one bench and five chairs.  We are planning on going to Joliet on Sunday to pick it up.  I can't wait to see it all put together. I also signed up for the Pier 1 card and my purchase has already earned me $30 and 20% off so I'm going to treat myself to a new centerpiece when we go to pick it up!

I could only find this tiny picture of the set together, but I will take a picture of
mine once it's all set up!

Three.  New Movies
Over the last couple days we've watched The Conjuring, The Heat, Olympus has Fallen, & Man of Steel and have been happy with ALL of them.  We try to watch as many movies as possible, between Netflix and Cinema Now on our PS3 we love being able to rent/watch movies so easily & quickly.  If anyone's looking for something new to watch, all of these are good!!  There's some serious eye candy in Man of Steel, Henry Cavill is gorg! The Heat is just plain funny, Olympus has Fallen is a nail biter, & The Conjuring will give you nightmares!  

swoon!! 
Four.  Holiday Scentsy's 
My all-time favorite smell at Christmas is fresh pine.  Once I let Joe we decided to get a real tree, I was most excited about the smell the Fraser Fur would bring to the house, & I maximized it with the Festival of Trees (I believe replaced by Fresh Pine), my house smelled like a winter forest all season!!  This Christmas I'm trying Cozy Fireside & Christmas Cottage (along with Fresh Pine).  I also love Silver Bells, Eskimo Kiss, & Winter Snowberry!! Seriously could change the scent about once a week during Christmas!!  My wonderful Scentsy girl Ashley reminded me of the 6 for $25 deal so you really get one scent for free, totally worth it!!  I also decided on Newborn Nursery (maybe some kind of good luck charm??) Black Raspberry Vanilla, & Bora Bora Blossom for a few new ones all of which I use in my Whoot Warmer.  What are your favorite holiday scents?


Five.  Decking the Halls
Yes, a week from today I can officially begin decorating for Christmas.  Joe is pretty strict about no Christmas ANYTHING until after Thanksgiving, but literally the night of Thanksgiving we pop in Christmas Vacation for the 1st time of the year to kick off the season of giving & pop open a bottle of champagne for mimosas.  On black Friday I pretty much refuse to go anywhere close to town so I spend the day inside decorating, watching Christmas movies like Elf, White Christmas, Fred Claus, Home Alone, & The Family Stone.  Saturday or Sunday depending on Joe's work schedule we will go to cut down our tree.  So excited to deck the halls!!

These are a few of my Favorite Things!



I'm linking up with Cheers Y'all  and Down with the Dearmores for this fabulous Christmas Link Up!

Of course like I’m sure many others lately, I’ve really been wanting to jump on the bar cart wagon!  If you Google bar cart you will find all sorts of beautiful pieces, but you click on them and realize that the prices are astronomical.  After browsing some blogs a couple weeks ago I found Target now sells a bar cart made by Threshold & the price is very reasonable!  I asked for this from Joe for Christmas this year, I’ve only had to remind him once so far.  Hope it’s waiting for me under the tree Christmas morning!


Lots of potential!

Two.  Pregnancy
I know this is kind of more of a personal wish, but if I could have anything on my Christmas list, it would be to be blessed with a baby.  What do you know today happens to be the day that I’m getting the IUI procedure done & it would be such a wonderful Christmas gift not only for us but for our families as well.  Both my mom and step-mom have specifically asked for a grandbaby for Christmas this year, I would love to be able to pull through for them.  I can see the perfect pregnancy announcement in my head, I can see tears of joy, I can see us having the best day of our lives when we read that the pregnancy test is positive.

This bag is amazing.  It so classy and simple.  A black bag is a must in anyone’s closet.  I do have a serious purse obsession & this purse is really high on my wishlist.  Bonus, the price is unbelievably reasonable!  Would seriously die to have this bag for that price!




If you follow Little Baby Garvin then you’ve seen these amazing hammocks before.  These are seriously the best & I would love to have one for out at our property.  Right now we have a roped hammock out there which is great for something to leave out there, but once we build, I’m determined to have one of these fabulous hammocks for our backyard.


Five.  Ray Bans
I’m not one to spend much on sunglasses, but I love these tortoise shell Ray Bans.  That is all.




Kate Spade has some amazing watches out right now, from glittery & colorful, to classic.  There are a few that I really love.  I already have a few watches, but you can never have too many!


both of these are amazing watches!! so cute & fun, yet classy.


Seven.  Bareminerals Face & Body Luminizer
I'm a sucker for make up kits.  My friend works for Sodorstrom Skin Institute & they sell their own line of makeup, Simply Beautiful, which I love & Bareminerals.  They've both got some great holiday kits this year I would love to get my hands on.  I've actually already got this Simply Beautiful Winter in Wonderland kit from my mom as a Christmas gift since it's been out for a couple months already.  I can't wait to try it out!


Of course I do not expect to get all of these things, but a girl can dream!  Hoping my family is reading this! Sorry there's nothing cheap on this list!  I guess sometimes I have expensive taste! Oops!  This is a wish list, after all.
