Weekly Faves

It's Friday and it's the last one of July--seriously where is the Summer going? It's been a bit since I've posted some of my favorites so here we go!

{1} Massage and Haircut
I got my hair cut and a color touch up yesterday. I loooooove my hairstylist and she  even did my color for free which was an awesome surprise! She made me look awesome ;)
ok, even without the filter, it's still a good cut :)
I had a massage scheduled for last Friday but my masseuse got sick and cancelled so it's been rescheduled for this afternoon which I'm over the moon excited about!

{2} Recent Read

Thanks to Christy, I got The Light Between Oceans to read. I wanted to dive into it as soon as I finished my previous book. It was a bit slow to get into but once the story picked up I was engrossed in it, even having dreams about it at night. Needless to say, I finished it in 3 days! Definitely recommend it! (Also, it's coming out in a movie soon so check out the book before then!)

{3} New Show Addiction
{via}
Since I've been home, and am doing my best not to spend a ton of money, I've been catching up on some tv, and discovered the show Famously Single which features some celebs I was familiar with (Paulie D, Brandy, Josh Murray from Bachelorette and Aubrey O'Day). I thought it was going to be trashy, but it actually wasn't. I found it interesting to watch and ended up not hating Brandy like I did on RHOBH. It ends next week, but you can still catch the episodes On Demand.

{4} IVF and the love and support of you all
Yep, IVF is a favorite this week. There's a sentence I never thought I'd say, but dammit, I've reached a point where I'm excited, anxious (and a little nervous) to get this IVF started. My shots start next week and I'm ready to get this show on the road. After trying to so long, we're more than ready for a baby to enter our lives and it feels like it's within reach. I'm so appreciative of all of your love and support--the comments, the private messages, the snaps...all of the support has done a ton to get me pumped and ready to get this part of our journey under way. So, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Putting my story out here is scary sometimes since I know there are people out there who are naysayers and negative nancy's, and use other people's stories as fodder for their own conversations, but the positive things that come out of the amazing people out there FAR outweigh the negative.  I'm not sure I would be where I am mentally or emotionally had it not been for the support from this community and I'll be forever grateful for you all.

{5} Some Funnies, after that serious note...

  6. i love getting a new do. i don't do colour though...i wish i did but it's not economical for me since my hair grows like weeds which would force me to do touch ups every 3wks instead of 6 (more $$!!)

  9. I think I've seen exactly one episode of Famously Single and it was hilarious. Pauly D looks exactly the same! lol I am so jealous of your cut and color. I am in desperate need of one. It's annoying. When do y'all go back to school anyway? We head back the 15th, I think I'm ready to be honest, but then I think about dealing with a bunch of 14 and 15 year olds and I want to crawl back under my covers. lol Hope you have a great weekend girlie!

  10. Your hair looks amazing! And can we talk about how much I'm loving that filter? I watched one or two episodes of Famously Single and wanted to punch one of the girls. I can't remember who she is now. Maybe I'll finish it out! Happy Friday! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  15. You must feel like a new woman after a massage and new cut and color! I hope the IVF process works out for you. A couple of my friends had difficulty getting pregnant the past couple years, but both of them just had success with IVF this month. Positive vibes your way!! Cheers, Laura

  16. Jenn, I'm so happy to hear that you're excited about starting IVF... that positive attitude has to help, right? You're going to rock it, girl!

  17. Yay for new hair cuts and color! Nothing makes you feel great than a new do! Good luck on your IVF! My insurance at work actually covers it so I know a ton of people that have done it successfully and have beautiful children! I probably know 30+ healthy and happy IVF babies and their exhausted parents, lol.

  18. That's awesome that your stylist gave you free color along with your cut! Getting your hair done can be so expensive, so those little perks are awesome! I also couldn't put down The Light Between Oceans, so I'm glad that you liked it too! I hope that you have a great weekend!

  19. lol those funnies are so true about post vacation. That book sounds awesome...I'll have to catch the movie when it comes out since I'm not a big book reader. Getting pampered is always fun and I'm sure much needed.
