Friday Favorites

First of all, I need to apologize for my absence this week.  Did any of you have issues with you Blogger Dashboard only showing one post rather than all of the posts from the blogs you follow?  Well mine was like that so it was really hard to keep up on everyone, unless I follow you on Bloglovin' so I'm sorry for the lack of comments!

This was me trying to figure out where all my blogs went!

Second, this was a whirlwind week.  Monday was supposed to be foundation excavation which turned into tree removal, Tuesday was work, Wednesday was travel for work all day, luckily Thursday and today I am off, well rested, de-stressed, and ready to rock and roll!

Favorite Moment: Seriously, 
I have 3 this week!  If you follow me on Instagram then you saw the majority of my happiness, and you probably saw my post about not apologizing for my happiness.  If I come off as sharing too much or being too happy, umm, #sorrynotsorry I refuse to be apologetic for being a happy and positive person & loving my life & sharing my life with all of you!  So... #1, our foundation was dug on Tuesday and it was so surreal!  I can't believe we have finally come to this point!  Next week will start actual construction of the house!  Tuesday just happened to be an awesome day because I also got my dream catcher/lotus flower tattoo and I'm so happy with it.  I have an appointment to finish it next Thursday the 3rd so be on the look out for the final product!  And last, today is our baseline ultrasound!  We are finally in the home stretch of starting this IVF cycle.  I will be starting medication any day now, maybe even tomorrow.  I will be sure to do a follow-up post of the outcome of the appointment and our plan going forward! 

Favorite Pin:
This will be my kid.

Favorite Quote:
Original minds don't always create new ideas, but take existing ideas and make them into
something new.

Favorite Online Purchase:
Yeah, I'm back at it again... I couldn't resist this adorable dress from The Mint Julep Boutique originally shared by Allison @ Texas Mrs.
wouldn't this just be adorable with a little bump underneath? <3

Favorite thing I'm looking forward to:
Again, a couple things, one is starting the medication for this IVF cycle, as soon as that happens, things will start to feel really real.  Getting my tattoo finished & the upcoming 4th of July weekend.  My 3 best friends and I have brunch planned, some pool time, a couple cocktails, some baby cuddling, and some good bonding time over the next week when everyone is in town & I can't wait.  Pumped for fireworks shows & maybe a few trips on the bike, I hate to say it, but I hope they will be my last for awhile. 
 Last year's 4th of July celebrations!

  15. My blogger dashboard always does that! I find that following along on Bloglovin' is so much easier (and it's mobile app is pretty great) I'll be in a no cell reception place all next week so I hope when I check back in I see you started your IVF process!!
