One And Done

Can we talk about the fact that I had these beauties (below) in my online Nordstrom cart this morning, went to get my debit card, and out of nowhere were magically sold out. What the hail. Doesn't everyone buying them know that blue is my favorite color? How dare they steal those away from me. Okay, rant over. I'm being a BRAT. :-)
I decided to spend $6 more on these gray beauties. Plus, they're the larger version of the blue kind... so I am happy camper. Thanks to Katie for blogging about the sale, or else I would've never even known! Katie, my wallet hates you. But I love you!

In other news, our fertility medication arrives today. Hip hip, hoorah! Then, starting on Wednesday, I will be shooting myself up with hormones (rather - my husband will inject me!) multiple times per day in the hopes that my body will create a ton of eggs. Pray for me to be extra fertile, would ya? 

Lastly, two things: 1) I am dressed like a mom today. Something about my haircut and retro-style dress. 2) I had a dream that my littlest baby (Layla Macy) had two little babies herself. It was odd. But maybe I was vicariously living through her. Am I gonna have two babies??? Yes please. One and done. Two for the price of one. Hoorah.

Happy Friday!

SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 1:25 - "For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength."

OBSERVATION: In verse 25, we clearly see how strong God is! Also, earlier in the chapter, verse 19, we see even more proof of God's abilities: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate."

APPLICATION: Even when life is going good, there's no such thing as perfection except as it relates to God. Our strongest times is equivalent to God's weakest times; he is very capable of more than we can even imagine. We cannot compare to his power!

PRAYER: Lord, I pray that others will be able to see you in me. I pray that I can shine your glory and others will see how powerful and perfect you truly are. I pray that those who are intelligent fall to their knees and surrender their knowledge just to know you. Amen.

  2. Oh man. People these days--stealing earrings that rightfully belong to the future you! ;) At least you got some beauties!

    Good luck with the fertility drugs! 2 babies would be AWESOME. I think that's how I'd want to do it, too.

  3. *Ugh!* - about those earrings. You would've rocked 'em, but the grey ones are super cute, too! A pretty good substitute. I'm praying for you & your fertility, girl! 2 babes would definitely be great!

  4. UGH! What the heck Nordstrom. I've been on there all morning trying to narrow it down haha. I think a pair of Kate Spade studs and 2 little bracelets are what I've decided on. I'm "thinking" it over for a bit though haha. I swear, makeup I can drop $50 on palette like it's a pack of gum, jewelry and clothes, it's so much harder. What the heck. Have a good weekend girl!

  9. Hahaha I'd be a brat if someone stole those Kendra's RIGHT out from under me!! ;) Yay for medicine coming in! Good luck on the shots! The ones at the beginning weren't bad for me. Now, when it's time for the progesterone shots, make sure to ice beforehand! It really helped me :) And then use a heating pad after to help the medicine spread and to help the soreness not be as bad! Good luck!
