A Week of Favorites & a Blogiversary

Hooray for Friday!  And an extra hooray for 3-day weekend!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of those who have bravely served our country and sacrificed their lives for our freedom.  That is really what Memorial Day is about, remembering & standing for those who stood for us.

Also, I have to toot my own horn a bit here, it's my 3 year blogiversary today!  Can you guys believe it!?  It's only been within the last year or so that I've really evolved my blog into what it is today, in the beginning I didn't share or even allow followers, I treated it more as a journal, then I decided that it was imporant to start sharing my story and finidng others who could relate to my situation.  I'm so glad that I did because I have made some wonderful blogging buddies and seriously have the sweetest, most supportive readers and followers!  The little success that my blog has (which I consider to be more than I could've ever imagined!) is all thanks to you guys!  You all have been such a source of support and inspiration and I cannot thank you all enough for that!  Cheers to 3 years!

 Favorite Moment:
Shout out to one of my very best friends Jessica and Mike on their very unexpected engagement this past weekend on Saturday and thanks to Mike for letting me be there!  I don't even think he knew he was proposing until it actually happened!  Can't wait to start the planning!

I opened up a 3 year bottle of Norton wine from our favorite winery to celebrate their engagement and our first night in the house, it was DELISH!

Other than that, it was another relatively quiet week, the best moment was actually Sunday I started my medication for IVFx4!  I have to take it until July 8th which is roughly 49 more doses, and 51 more days until baseline ultrasound.  Although I am going to enjoy these next 7 weeks and not wish my time away, I am glad that I am moving within this cycle already and taking steps to correct what we believe to be the issues.  If you guys recall, I tested negative for Beta 3 Integrin Protein which is essential for the adhesion of an embryo to implant.  It simply boils down to a hormonal imbalance which we can thankfully correct!

Favorite House Update:
Last weekend we actually got to stay in our house for the first time.  Although we can't technically live there yet, we stayed over night and it was amazing to sleep in our big new bed and shower in that ginormous shower with a beautiful view.   I'm really hoping that we, and by we, I mean Joe, can get the replacement windows in this weekend and then we can get final inspected and hopefully pass the first time and move in!  I can't believe how close we are to finally making this our forever home.  Our furniture is in too and ready to be delivered at any time!  Woohoo!

Favorite Pin:

 how stinkin' cute is this suit?

Favorite Workout:
Still going strong on practicing yoga every day and trying to take at least 5 minutes to meditate and clear my head each day.  I've also been working hard on perfecting my handstand.

ps.  I meditate first, then take the picture when I'm done, if anyone was wondering.

Favorite Thing I'm looking forward To: 
Really crossing my fingers hard that Joe can get the windows done this weekend!  He told me that he is planning on calling in the inspection for Tuesday so if we pass, next weekend is moving weekend!  Also, getting fresh highlights and a head shave on Saturday along with a 3 day weekend!  We only have one goal this weekend and that is get the house ready for FINAL inspection!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend blogland!
