Weekend Recap (Finally!) and 1 Week Appointment

I know, I know- I am about 5 days late with my weekend recap- BUT this week has been extremely busy for me! And I still wanted to share our weekend with everyone because it was quite eventful!


First of all, Friday night I enjoyed some much-needed girl time with these lovely ladies:



Since our last Bunco night was so much fun (I posted about it here) we decided to have another one- this time with some yummy Greek food :) Oh, and of course, there were still plenty of margaritas on hand! Although, Husband has made it very clear that I am not allowed to drink any of those until we get our pregnancy test results next week (more on that below).

Saturday night was a very special night for Husband's parents: they celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary! They rented out a private room at delicious restaurant to celebrate along with 40 of their closest friends. Husband and I enjoyed meeting everyone and spending some time with his brother and his brother's girlfriend:

Here's our happy little family:

Husband's parents have been such an inspiration to us and we can only hope to be as happy as they are 29 years from now! It was so sweet to see how much their love for each other has grown after all this time.

Then, on Sunday we started a MAJOR home project:


Yep, we are laying wood flooring (and yes, we are doing it ourselves). Call me crazy, but I thought it would be a great way to save some money by not having to pay a professional to install it. The floors definitely look great so far.........


.......but in the meantime my house has been a disaster! There is dust and mess EVERYWHERE but I havent been able to clean yet because the room is still not quite done. Hopefully within the next week everything will be complete and I can post some pics of the room for everyone to see!

Finally, here is an update on Baby Hill: we had our 1 week appointment on Wednesday (1 week after our IUI). I had some bloodwork completed to check my hormone levels- and so far everything is normal :) Which means, I finally ovulated (after 11 months of trying to get to that point), now we just have to see if everything worked. We will be going back this coming Wednesday for the official pregnancy test- and hopefully I will get the results by the afternoon that same day! We are praying and thinking good thoughts each and everyday hoping that we will finally get the answer we have been waiting for!

Happy Friday to everyone!

We put flooring in our kitchen/dining room a few years ago and it is quite the project! It will all be worth it once it's done though. Not having a kitchen for 3 weeks was a pain in the butt!

I hope these next several days will go fast for you!

Lindsay said...

Your floors look amazing! What a great time to do a time-consuming project, so you don't have to fixate about Wednesday's news. I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU! Even if this cycle wasn't successful in producing a baby, how exciting that you've finally ovulated! What a HUGE step in and of itself!!!! But let's all hope for the BEST! :)

Oh, and I LOVE the new floor! We're in the process of trying to find someone to re-finish our hardwood floors, and I want a dark finish just like yours. So pretty! I can't wait to see the finished product.
