Weekending Highlights

Happy Monday! It's somehow already the middle of August (whaaaaaatttt??) and it's also been hot as balls here in VA. Like real feel temps around 115. No thank you.

Despite the heat, the weekend had some highlights:

~finished the book I was reading; and played with Cooper a bit downstairs since we've been less active than usual
~MG brought home pizza on the way home from work on Friday since I wasn't up to go out

~We started watching Stranger Things on Netflix in between watching Olympics at night. It's good...and also weird...but I kind of love that it takes place in the 80s. 

~Had another early morning doc appt (4th morning in a row) Saturday morning

~Had some breakfast and then went to Bed Bath and Beyond for some stuff. Picked up a bathroom cabinet organizer in the process and organized the cabinet and all of the drawers in our bathroom. Hey, if you can't work out and it's too hot outside to do anything, you may as well organize, right??
~gave myself a mani with Essie's blanc again (love it)

~since it was hotter than Hades out, spent most of the rest of the day inside reading, playing with Coop, watching Olympics, and Stranger Things. And MG made watermelon slushies for us, too--they were SO good!
~Got ready to meet up with our friends for dinner, and decided to bust out my romper
~took my last night of stim shots! (and a celebratory selfie!)
~Met up with our friends for dinner. We haven't seen them since before we went to Greece so we got caught up on that, and everything else that's been going on. 2 hours passed by so fast, and we would have stayed longer but the restaurant was super hot and we were all sweating at the table, so we called it a night.
~Woke up early for my 5th morning in a row at the doc. Unfortunately when we got there, all of the nurses were waiting outside because their key fobs hadn't worked on the door. My appointment was at 7am, I got there at 645, and the fobs finally worked after 7. 
~Ran errands, and picked up a rug for our living room area. Cooper was a fan immediately. Within 2 minutes of unrolling it....
(we are actually going to take it back since it doesn't go with our living room stuff which is a bummer because I actually really liked the pattern)

~had a momentary freak out about my meds (thinking I didn't have enough) for the night. Was calmed down by a good, new friend who had my back :)

~MG grilled up some jalapeƱo monterrey jack burgers for dinner and some corn on the cob which were amazing 
~watched a couple more episodes of Stranger Things

~took my last shot!!!! before bed

This morning I'm back at the doc's for blood work (again). My retrieval surgery is scheduled for Tuesday morning, so if you could send me some prayers for everything to go well, and that we get some happy, healthy eggs out of it, I'd appreciate it!

Hoping you're surviving the heat wherever you are!

  2. Sounds like you had a pretty productive weekend! Love that striped romper, so perfect for these miserably hot days! And I can't believe the key fob issue at the doctor, talk about a pain! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  4. Praying for you! Do you watch RHOC? Meghan went through IVF so it's been really interesting watching the whole process on tv and she also has a special instagram set up for it. Are you in as much pain as she was? I'm so glad that you're getting to do this before school starts!

  19. Sending some big prayers out to you this week - I hope everything goes well! Looks like you had a great weekend, too. I love that rug pattern, but we've found the same thing - you really need to bring them home and see how they look before deciding. We went through 3 rugs this weekend for our dining room, but I think we actually finally have one we like!

  20. Prayers for healthy eggs and a smooth retrieval!!!!! You looked so cute in your romper, I've been too unsure to try and pull one off. You nailed it! We started Stranger Things too and watched 2 episodes and I'm not into it yet. Does it get better? I'm not sure how much longer I can watch Winona Ryder be nothing but super stressed out.

  31. You look gorgeous in that romper and so needed for this heat. I've been dying. Your Sat night dinner looks delish but never comfortable to eat in a hot restaurant. Cooper is too cute getting cozy on the new rug! I got a goo chuckle. Lola would do the same thing or possibly try to "play" with it.
