Too Much Time, Too Little To Do...

Strike that.

Reverse it.

Hi! Guess who's been busy.

We spent last weekend traveling to and from the beautiful Johnson City, TN for my beautiful sister-in-law's beautiful wedding. It was beautiful. Seriously.


See?



Bridesmaid & Groomsman



Under the reception tent - magical.


I laughed (when the bride and bridemaids rocked out to the most inappropriate "We Can't Stop" by Miley Cyrus at the church minutes before walking down the aisle. Oops.). I cried (the Catholic vows get me every time). I danced the night away. And I enjoyed spending many moments with parents-in-laws, siblings-in-laws, aunts-in-laws, uncles-in-laws, cousins-in-laws, and my mom and dad, who flew out from Rhode Island to enjoy the celebration too. It was one heckuva good time.

This past week, I've been playing catch up at work. But it's honestly been pretty fun.

And other than that, I've just been enjoying time off with the husband. Last night we made Harry Potter butterbeer cupcakes together. Let me just tell you, they're delicious! And it's a good thing I have a youth group meeting tonight. I'm hoping those teens gobble them up because my waistline does not need 23 more butterbeer cupcakes (though my taste buds think otherwise).

As for the upcoming week, it looks like we're a go for laparoscopic surgery this Thursday. I'm scared, nervous, and hopeful. The husband feels the same. Any advice from any of you kind ladies who have undergone laparoscopic surgery?

If you wouldn't mind, please say some prayers for us! Here's hoping for a safe surgery, a speedy recovery, overall health, and some answers regarding our infertility. I'll post a post-surgery update as soon as I'm feeling up to it. I'm taking a week off from work for surgery and recovery, so I'll likely have a bit of free time to keep everyone in the loop :)

Thanks in advance, for your prayers, love, and support.

St. Anne, pray for us!

  3. Praying for your surgery! Make sure you have a comfy body pillow to out over your tummy on the way home from the hospital, have plenty of 7up or ginger ale ready so you can drink some for the nausea from the anasthesia drink it fast so you can berp and have ice packs so you can alternate them on your abdomen so that you don't have to take too much pain medication afterwards. I am assuming this is just an out patient diagnostic surgery so it is not really that bad. I was scared before mine but it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My 2nd surgery was major surgery and the recovery was harder.

  4. I also had my DH and mom pray the rosary for me and the Dr. while I was in surgery it calmed my nerves to know that they were praying for me and the Dr. You will do great and I hope they find some answers for you!

    1. Thank you for all of your suggestions! I made sure I picked out the comfiest of pillows for the ride home and I've been using it ever since just as a protective barrier over my scars. The ginger ale has been a tasty post surgery drink too. Very mild on the tummy. And the recommendation for dh to pray the rosary - that was wonderful! It helped me a bunch and it calmed him a bit too. I'm so grateful that I asked for suggestions! Yours were so helpful :)

  6. Said it on Facebook already, but prayers for your surgery!
    What a beautiful wedding!
    Your comment about the bridesmaids rocking out made me laugh, because I pictured me and my bridesmaids right before my wedding--our get-ready area was this partitioned off area in the back of the church, so if we had done something like that the entire church would have heard. So that is what I pictured you all doing. lol

    1. Hahahaha. Yeah, at one point we were a little worried that our silly singing could have been heard out in the narthex. I guess we'll never know. But it was certainly fun. Thanks for the prayers :)
