Friday Favorites

Friday, we meet again!  Does anyone else feel like this summer is going by entirely too fast?  I mean don’t get me wrong, I’ve been ready for July since April, but I hate to see the time go by so fast, then realize that life is going by too fast, then get depressed and feel the need to eat unhealthy amounts of sweets and cry about it.  Ok, not really, but time truly does fly!

 Ok, let’s get started…

Favorite Moment:
My favorite moment this week was hitting the 30 DAY mark until target egg retrieval!  As of right now we are still on track to retrieve on Friday, July 11th.  This is subject to change based on my response to the medication, but that is the day we are shooting for.  It’s been exactly two months since the dreaded appointment where I found out that IVF was our best option, I can’t believe we are this close to our big dream coming true!

Favorite Song:
A friend of mine from grade school & high school just signed a multi-million dollar recording deal & I couldn't be happier for him.  You can order his EP, Clouds, here.
Favorite Workout:
Still going strong at Curves and really loving it.  I've been trying to get there 3-4 x per week.  I should report that after one month there I was down 1.5 pounds and lost a couple of inches (.5” on my chest, which I really don’t have much to lose there anyway so that kind of sucks, .5” on my thighs too), and I went down from 23.5% body fat down to 20.3%!  How awesome is that for one month!?  Also, if you read my IVF Prep diet plan you will heed this....

Favorite thing I’m looking forward to:
Digging a hole for our house! Excavating should start any day now.  CANNOT BELIEVE IT!!  Joe and I bought the property about 4 years ago in October of 2010 so we have been ready for this for a while now & it’s so exciting that it’s finally happening.  This process will certainly rival that of the infertility journey that we are on and it seems only natural that life would hand us both of these things at once!  Bring it on.
here's a little Pinspiration for you...
