Thursday Thoughts

I thought I'd take a break from vacation recaps since there's really only two more stops left (one post) and I haven't gotten those photos organized yet from MG's phone and our camera.

So today is a bunch of random thoughts and confessions for ya!

~My IVF meds arrived yesterday early afternoon....in two boxes. They filled up our kitchen table when I unpacked them all and laid them out. Luckily we had our shot class yesterday so we (MG) feels more comfortable with mixing these and giving them to me.  #pimpinainteasy #neitherisIVF
~IVF is an overwhelming process. But damn if it doesn't feel somewhat more manageable when you've got someone going through it, right along side you (plus the others who have been there, done that, and are supporting you too). One of my blog buddies--you know who you are--has been my partner in solidarity through this. We're getting our meds at the same time, freaking out about needles, doc appointments, etc...together. And we even got our Buzzy shot blockers together too. It helps having an IVF buddy to walk through this process together with! #TTCsisters
~I've been a reading machine this summer. I've made it through a book a week (or in slightly less time) and am so happy with getting back into this groove, and finding some good books along the way! I'm reading another Jojo Moyes book now! #readingismyjam

~We're heading up to the shore this weekend and I'm looking forward to it. We'll be celebrating my MIL's birthday and just packing in some more family time after our trip to Deep Creek. We'll be in the same place we were at last summer, so we already know the place is cute, and perfectly located. Bring on the sunshine and sand! #sunonmyskin #feetinthesand

~I have a breakfast date with a friend of mine this morning and I'm looking forward to it! I haven't seen her since we got out of school for the summer, and she's leaving for Greece in a little over a week so I'm gonna give her all of my recs of things to do! Love a little girl time over breakfast! #girlfrienddate

~my friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer had her surgery on Tuesday and everything went SO well! She is already back home and recovering. So thankful that things went smoothly! #praise

~I've been loving recapping our Greece trip (still have to recap the last two stops on our trip!) and seeing all of the people getting inspired to go and visit! How could you not want to go when you have such pretty views? #bringmebacktoGreece
~Part of my NSale purchases arrived yesterday (and really only the leggings were part of the sale). I love these new kicks and am so glad I finally bit the bullet and got them! #icouldntresist
~We finished OITNB the other day and I take back what I said about it feeling more like a comedy when we initially were watching it. Things got deep and dark real quick, especially at the end of the season! Still can't believe how the season ended! #whathewhat

~I got another pair of ear jacket earrings yesterday at Kohl's. They're Lauren Conrad and I'm smitten. Plus they were $8.50! #gimmealltheprettythings

What are you thinking this Thursday??

  4. You are going to kick IVF's butt! One step closer to baby and I couldn't be more excited for you!!! IVF just downright sucks and is unfair and is physically/emotionally/financially exhausting. BUT so worth it! Xoxoxo

  5. You have the IVF thing in the bag. Like I said, I am so proud of you and how brave you have been. Bring the baby making meds! And the shoes... so cute, I wish I had a pair now. Love those earrings i always forget about how much I love Kohl's.

  6. The needles are definitely the less fun part, that's how I felt when we were doing fertility treatments. Sending lots of good thoughts your way!

  10. You have such a great attitude about the IVF stuff, kick some butt lady! Having someone go through it with you is so great, I am so glad you have each other. I have a friend that had her transfer Tuesday and y'all are all in my thoughts.

  13. Good luck with the IVF process. I can't even imagine how difficult it is to go through, but it sounds like you have an amazing support system to help you through it! OINTB almost lost me last season, but it finally turned back around! I can't wait to see what happens next season!

  15. I'm so glad to hear about your friend. Thank goodness she's doing well.

    I have those same Converse and I LOVE them. I love the twist on the old favorite.

    And finally, I hope everything goes will with your IVF. One of my friends just did it and I didn't realize how involved it was until I watched her go through it. Praying for you as always, girl! XO

  18. Wow so much for me to comment on. Yay for starting IVF. So excited for you and the other bloggy friend. I am a reading machine too. Can't get enough of it. Have so much fun on your weekend trip. I can't wait to visit Greece too. It is on my bucket list. Love those kicks and earrings. I was wide eyed at the end of OITNB also. Just wow. Hope you have a great weekend!

  20. Good luck with IVF! I love your new sneakers. I have some very old chuck taylors I still wear but they could definitely use an upgrade!

  21. I can only imagine how overwhelming the IVF process is but it's great you have a friend that's going through the same thing so you can support each other and reassure each other on all the different steps. I can't wait to catch up on all your travel recaps this weekend. I've soooo been missing out. Those LC earrings are gorgeous...I really love her stuff.
