Chemicals Be Gone

Fridays around these parts of the World Wide Web call for things that I am loving. 

1. This skirt.
But gurl, you know I didn't pay full price. I am sorta obsessed with all clothes from Red Dress Boutique, and when I saw the skirt below, I wanted it. But, like a good little girl, I waited. Then on Labor Day, I saw Jane Divine Boutique offering if for half the price, plus 30% off, plus free shipping. I about died and went to heaven. Come to momma, skirt. P.S. It's still in stock with sizes small & medium. The brand is Flying Tomato. Just duh. Pure perfection.

2. Our upcoming photo shoot.
Thank God my husband enjoys making this girl (points to self) happy. Because here in another week and half, we're doing our annual anniversary photo shoot. I can't wait! In past years, we've done more rustic themes, but we're switching it up this year and doing a very Austin-y photo shoot featuring this beautiful blue wall. If you're curious, here's a quick look at our first and second anniversary photos.

3. Reduced use of chemicals. 
If you really knew me, then you'd know that I am honest-to-God a perfume addict. I am not exaggerating either. I am truly addicted to perfume. Well... for the sake of making my body as "clean" as possible for our upcoming IVF procedure, I haven't worn perfume in over a week. That's a major victory in my opinion. Plus, I have been working out 4-5 times per week and attempting (key word: attempting) to eat less sugar. But let's face it, change does't happen overnight.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Getting closer.
Your continued prayers are sincerely appreciated. I can't express exactly how much they mean! As soon as I publish this post, I will be heading to my doctor for my first ultrasound since beginning IVF medications. I am really looking forward to the progression forward! Praise God! Also, I currently have this quote up above our dining room table, right above the IVF meds.

5. A little humor.
This one hit home. Don't you agree? "You don't say..."

  6. Thinking of you! That skirt is amazing. Your "funnies" were cracking me up on Pinterest last night. My fave was the "how I feel when trying on a bathing suit" one, I had to re-pin!
