I apologize for my absence this week! It was kind of a crazy one. After the 15” of snow we got over Saturday night and Sunday I ended up at work until 7:30 Monday night so I got a few hours of OT! I work for the electric and gas utility company so storms are our business! Tuesday we got our taxes done and went to meet the newest baby in our circle of friends, Everly. She is just a doll! Wednesday was dinner out at a local restaurant that’s been open for 51 years and is finally closing this April, so sad! So, like I said, things were a little crazy and I didn't make any time for blogging. Well today is a double whammy, I'm also guest posting over at Believe in the Sparks!
all of us cousins and the owner of 101! So gunna miss this place!
I’m sure that my favorite moment of the week will be tonight. We are going to August Hill (the winery that we belong to) for a wine and chocolate pairing and I cannot wait! Two of my favorite things together! The girls are headed to the winery and the guys are headed to the pub across the street then meeting for dinner somewhere in the middle. Should be fun!
So I’m totally blowing my shopping goal. I mentioned the Dream Bigger MantraBand, I’m so in love! Then I ended up at Target to shop for baby Everly and ended up with a new purse and another swimming suit top! Oops! I swear they put something in the air there that makes every single thing in that store more appealing… #132dollarslater …. I also ordered a new cell phone case and a pair of lace-up wedge booties from Amazon. I’ve got a free Amazon Prime trial right now and I’m totally taking advantage of the free shipping! I’m all over the place with my purchases and I need to get myself under control ASAP.
I really NEED this in my life!
Of course another zoodle recipe!
Favorite Thing I’m looking forward to:
Besides the wine & chocolate pairing, I’m looking forward to doing some cooking tomorrow night with my longtime friend Alicia and another relaxing weekend. I’m also looking forward to Monday, our IVF consultation with our new doctor! We will be meeting him for the first time and I really hope that he has some new ideas for us. I am going to push for PGS testing, which is all that I really want. For those of you not familiar, PGS testing is Preimplantation Genetic Screening, it screens the chromosomes of the embryos for abnormalities (i.e. abnormal # of chromosomes Trisomy 21). It’s common testing done for people with multiple failed IVF cycles like we’ve had. I’m interested to hear what type of protocol he is going to recommend. I already know that they want fewer follicles than I had last time. I had 34 and they want me to have about 10-15. I was definitely overstimulated with 34 follicles which could’ve been the cause of the failed cycle. I will definitely post an update after the appointment!
