Before we get into the probably-boring-to-you topic of makin' babies (pronounced beh-behs), we should probably talk about makeup. Per usual with my "beauty favorites", I like to the highlight products that make me smile and that I think are worth your hard earned money. Prime example: these mascaras are where it's at...
L'Oreal Miss Manga ($7.99) - I love the flexibility of the wand and the way that it "perfectly clumps" my lashes together. It does it in a good way - not a scary way! Also, it's a dupe for the Too Faced mascara (below).
Too Faced Better Than Sex ($23) - I am head-over-heels for the brush tip of this wand! If I had to pick an absolute favorite mascara in all the land, this would be my winner. It gives my lashes so much volume!
Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes ($23) - The brush head of this mascara will separate each and every.single.lash on your eyes! I just love that. On the daily, I use this mascara first, and then I top it with one of the other two mascaras. Voila! Perfection.
As if this blog post isn't already amazing enough, I bring you good news. I'm not pregnant yet, but we are getting closer (hopefully). I finally got my IVF calendar, which basically means that we are at the point of starting the process. Here's a little breakdown:
- Starting on July 23rd, I will begin taking fertility medication. Not sure when I will stop taking meds, but it will be daily for several days or weeks.
- However, I will stop taking birth control on July 26th... Thank goodness.
- Our egg retrieval day is expected to be on August 14th if all goes according to plan.
- August 19th is the estimated date for our embryo transfer (eek!).
We have already gotten the money situation squared away. It's scary to even think about how much money this will cost us, but we are pursuing a dream of ours, and sometimes dreams cost money! Plus, as one of my girlfriends put it, once you have kids, you'll always be poor since they cost so much money - why not start now??? Haha!
Peace and blessings y'all.
