Shop Til You Drop Weekend!

This morning was the morning I have been dreading for several weeks now: time for my HSG test :( Because of Husband's new job, he was unable to be there with me, which put my anxiety into overdrive! Husband is normally so calm and cool in stressful situations that he is the perfect balance to my craziness! Without him there, I tried to keep myself together- not an easy task! You could probably say Husband was getting bombarded with text messages while I sat in the waiting room!

The test itself was not a long procedure- it was just the experience of it that I did not enjoy. As I laid there, staring at the ceiling, several things went through my mind: 1) This is VERY AWKWARD! I have always had a female doctor and unfortunately the doctor doing this test was an older male, so this was the first time I had had a male doctor "down there" 2) PLEASE let the results be normal- as long as they are, I am able to begin treatment. As with past appointments, I googled everything about the test before hand so I was very aware of what they could possibly find. 3) After those earlier thoughts had passed, I thought about this whole experience: all the tests and doctor visits, all the stress and tears, and all the prayers Husband and I have been saying, hoping for some good news at some point. And I thought about how I hope in a year or two from now, I am able to look back on all of this and think of how it was totally worth it- becasue I will have Baby Hill in my arms!

They did not go over the test results with me today, since the test was not done at my doctor's office- but luckily, I already have an appointment scheduled with Dr Ku (our fertility specialist) for next Friday. Now, if only I can worry about other things in the meantime!

After that very uncomfortable and very stressful start to my Friday morning, I decided there was no better way to improve my day then to indulge in some retail therapy! I had actually had my mind set to be "good' and avoid shopping today- but who was I kidding??!! As I drove past one of my favorite shopping centers on my way home I JUST HAD TO STOP!




So I spent some of my time here.........



If any of you have never heard of this store, you should really see if there is one by you! (they have stores in several different states) They also have all of their clothes for purchase online as well, but that is just not the same as shopping in a store! I absolutely love this store- they have the cutest things and their prices are Husband-approved!

Here is my favorite purchase from today.......


It doesnt really look like anything special in these pictures, but it is so cute on! I love the ruffle neckline and this dress is soooo comfortable! I can't wait to dress it up with some fun jewelry!

Now, the reason for today's blog title (and why I was trying to be "good" today by not shopping) is because Husband and I are counting on doing some major damage at the mall tomorrow! He is in desperate need of more work clothes since he has this new job- and just our luck, Nordstrom is having a sale!! :) So we have decided to make a special day of it and drive into Dallas (we live about an hour north) to go to one of my favorite malls and then spend the day together out and about! I am very much looking forward to our "day-date" tomorrow!

Hope you all are having a Fabulous Friday!
