One Month Later and Top 2 Tuesday!

This weeks Top 2 Tuesday is..........



Top 2 Favorite Purchases Made This Year!

You would think with all the shopping I do this would be really easy or that I would be able to come up with too many to list, but I am actually struggling with this one. As I sit here trying to rack my brain for 2 items to post about, I have realized that I have not shopped enough this year! (shocking, I know) I was trying to think of 2 big purchases that we have made this year and I am completely drawing a blank! Everything that I can think of that I love was purchased last year! Do you think I could use this as an excuse to persuade Husband to let me do some more shopping??
With that being said, here are my top 2 (bear with me, one is a little cheesy and the other I haven't even received yet!)
1) Husband's College Degree
Yes, a degree is a 4 year (or longer) process, but this spring Husband finished his final semester of school for his Bachelors of Business- Marketing degree. I am so relieved that with a lot of hard savings we were able to get all of his schooling completely paid off! It is such a huge weight off of our shoulders to know that we no longer have to worry about this extra expense (especially if we end up having a baby on the way soon!).
2) My 2nd top pick is an item that I haven't even received yet (I actually just bought it today!), but I already know it will be my favorite purchase of the year!........

I wish I could take credit for this wonderful idea, but I actually stole it from a fellow blogger, Ashley at For The Love of Shoes and a Baby Too. She had posted pictures of her wearing a similar necklace to all doctors appointments and I fell in love with the idea! I had been wanting to find something as a token of our journey and when I found this necklace I knew it was perfect! I am hoping it arrives soon since I have quite a few doctors appointments lined up over the next several weeks and I would love to have it as we begin treatment with injectionables.

On a seperate note, I would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all of my followers for all of your support so far! I cannot believe that only a month ago I started this blog with hopes of venting some of our frustrations and other emotions while enduring this long journey towards Baby Hill. All of your positive feedback and kind words continue to astound me every day and I am so grateful for all of you! It has been so encouraging to read stories of other people who have experienced very similar journeys and have come out on the other side! While Husband and I may still not have the news we are wanting, we know it will happen for us soon and we have all of you to thank for reminding us of that.

I look forward to what the next however many months will bring- and am very anxious to get to the big 5-0 for followers (hint, hint!) :)
