Five on Friday

One.  Busiest Day Ever
I definitely overbooked our schedules for Monday.  After work I had to meet someone in the next town over who I had sold something too on Facebook.   Then I had a girl coming to the house who I had sold something to on Facebook, then our builder was coming over, then I had a girl come to the house who I had sold something to on Facebook, then I had a guy coming to the house who I had sold something to at work.  Yep, it’s a crazy and complicated as it sounds.  We put a bunch of stuff up online to sell & ended up selling all of it!  By the time this was all said and done it was almost 7pm.  I was so happy on Tuesday after work that I had nothing to do and as soon as I was about to start dinner, Joe came home with a $5 Hot N Ready from Little Caesars!  #goodman

 Two.  Next Appointment
Monday is our next appointment!  I’m so ready to start this next cycle.  It’s been a long time coming.  The cyst should be gone and there should be nothing else to hold us back.  I have really high hopes for this 3rd IUI.  I’m going to be using a different medicine, Gonal F instead of Follistim since my coverage changed as of January 1st.  I know it might seem crazy with everything that we already have going on, selling our house, moving to my parents, and starting to build or new home, that we want to add a pregnancy and a baby on top of all of it, but I’m ready for the challenge.  This could potentially end up being the best year of our lives.  It might be stressful, it might be crazy, but it will be well worth it!

Three.  Treat.
I am thrilled to announce that Treat by Shutterfly contacted me about their awesome greeting card service.  I am still finalizing a few things on my end so I’m not quite ready to reveal all of the details, but I can’t wait to share with you!

Four.  Bed Head Dual Waver
Has anyone ever used this product?  I found it on Pinterest and thought it looked like a fun and easy tool.  A couple times a week I curl my hair, but I have to get up about 10 minutes early to do it and let’s face it, it’s pretty rare that I would sacrifice sleep just for my hair style, even just 10 minutes.  I’m hoping that this tool will be quicker than the curling iron! 

Christina @ Forever Young posted this recipe a couple of weeks ago and I finally got around to making it Wednesday and it was amazing!  I will let you check out her post because she is an awesome photographer and my pics would never compare to hers.  I love a healthier pasta dish.  Pasta and pizza are probably my two favorite foods ever, but also like THE MOST unhealthy, carb filled foods you could possibly eat so finding healthier versions is always a plus!


  1. Yay you sold everything that's good news. And can't wait to see what you did with Shutterfly. Let me just say that Shutterfly is addicting between there books and cards I'm hooked. April is your month mamacita. Praying for you!

  8. I want to see a picture of your hair with that tool! Good luck with your upcoming IUI...fingers crossed for you.

  9. Good luck today, girl! I have a good feeling this time will be the best for you! xo

  10. Ain't that always a thrill? Breaking from old bonds, starting with new connections and building from there. Selling a house isn't just a thing of mobility; it's also a forward push, bringing it to those who want it, and making sure that we tie up loose ends before moving on. A real good realtor is essential in making sure that this endeavor goes real well, and serves all invested parties like it should.
