Actually, I'm probably the Grinchiest of them all right now. Still in a funk, probably due to a combo of progesterone and Femara now. Plus, I wasn't able to do the hysteroscopy and ultrasound with our NaPro doc this cycle since he's on vacation. Plus plus, as excited as I am for so many good friends announcing pregnancy and adoption news, I can't help but feel a little like the last kid picked in gym class. Cue: sad trombone. Womp womp wommmmmmp.
The good news is I still found some little blessings this past week. They may not be much, but they're keeping me afloat.
I picked up my newly fired and glazed jewelry plate thing last week and I love how it turned out. I don't have much artsy skill, but as it turns out, a little bit of masking tape and an eye for fun color combos can go a long way!
Get your party hats ready because someone is celebrating a birthday this week!!
I seriously can't believe it's almost been a year since John's surprise, superhero-themed 30th birthday party.
Anyway, we're having a handful of friends over later this week to celebrate. And by a handful I mean 20. Yayyyy! But also, YIKES! I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but for a two bedroom apartment... it's about to get hottt in herrrrre. Still, I'm very much looking forward to celebrating my sweet John in style and surrounded by all his local friends.
To get the apartment ready for the festivities, we decorated our new chalkboard with an artsy fartsy birthday message. Bunting flags FTW!
Speaking of John's birthday, in typical Stephanie fashion, I could not hold off 'til his actual birthday to give him one of his gifts... an Elite Mega Magnus Blaster Nerf gun. Boom.
For probably a year now, every time we go to Target he just has to walk by the Nerf gun aisle so he can be tempted by all of them and look for a sale, yet he's never bought one. Or, errr, has never pulled the trigger, so to speak (pun so intended).
So, mayyyybe I had a bit of a selfish motive when I bought the Nerf gun. It would be nice if he'd stop dragging me by the Nerf aisle allll the way at the back of the store every single time we shopped there.
But, let's be real, his new Mega Magnus Blaster is really freakin' awesome. It can fire up to 85 feet and its darts whistle in the air!!!!
We're kids at heart, I tell ya.
Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh.
Do you know why this Saturday is going to be so completely awesome?
Do you do you do you do you do you?
THE DOCTOR RETURNS!
Doctor Who, you ask?
Johnson City, here we come!
John and I both have 1.5 weeks off starting this Friday night, so we're headed to East Tennessee for some quality time with his family. I could not be more excited!
Mountains and relaxing and possibly another Chopped challenge and my awesome in-laws? Yes please!
