Good morning and happy happy Thursday to you. I have a little pep in my step today because it is almost Friday. I am hoping to get in at least one beach day and am planning to cook a bunch of new things. Yay weekend!
My head movies are a big bag of weird this week which means its time for another Thinking Out Post.
File this one under #PinterestFails.
I came across this recipe for Mexican Chowder and thought it sounded delish so I made it last weekend. Well, I thought I made it. My version tastes amazing but doesn’t look the original at all. What happened?!
Infertility is the worst…
IUI #1 resulted in a a BFN. This was not the news we were hoping for and I took it very hard. I still don’t think I will ever be able to tell my husband that, once again, we are not pregnant without tears. We are going for round #2 this month and are crossing all of our fingers and toes for a different outcome. Now we wait…
…but running helps.
Speaking of infertility struggles, one things that has been helping my cope is running. So I decided to run a half marathon last weekend. My training was strong until the final 3 weeks when I had to take a break because of the IUI. Once I got the negative result, I jumped back into running full force and banged out 13.1. Well actually, it was 13.49.
Yikes – I am not a fitness model. This was actually one of the better photos.

Another great book
This book is so good so far. I am about 2/3 of the way through and have a hard time putting it down each night. I am DYING to know how everything gets wrapped up and can’t wait to finish it.
Into the Water is by the same author, Paula Hawkins, as Girl on the Train and is just as captivating. Looks like I’ll have to spend some time at the beach reading this weekend 💁 📚
Next up on my reading list is
- Finishing Second Chance by Jane Green – I put it down to start Int the Water
- What I Lost by Alexandra Ballard – Her mother was my favorite high school teacher
- The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah:- Yes, I’m about a year behind on reading this
That’s all I’ve got for today my friends. I hope you have a great Thursday!
