This Week In Pics

Hi girls!  Happy Friday to you!  After a quick visit to Washington state last weekend, Ace and I are back home in sunny south Florida (and happy to be here!).  Adam & I parted ways last Thursday, Ace + myself going to WA, and Adam to Vegas to play in the World Series of Poker.  This is the first year that I haven't joined him in Vegas and I'm not the least bit sad that I didn't tag along.  Vegas is fun when you only visit once or twice a year, but when you live there for weeks, sometimes months at a time, its a whole different animal.  I vowed that I wouldn't go this year, but we're so rarely apart that I'm not sure how long it will last!  

I was lucky enough to have one sunny day while I was in the Pacific Northwest, and we really took advantage of it!  I think this was the first nice day (weather wise) that I've experienced since I moved 3 years ago.  My mom and I took Ace for a long walk, I attended my besties baby shower, I visited with my Grandmother and we dined outside (a rarity in June) at my favorite restaurant, Wildfire.  

I also paid a visit to my doctor while I was back home and had my IUD removed.....not for baby making purposes (yet!) but just because I've been so unhappy with it since I had it implanted a couple years ago.  I have been SO exhausted ever since I had it removed, apparently its the sudden drop in hormone levels that causes the fatigue.  I've bailed on every single gym sessions this week, and have been sleeping in till all hours of the day (I'm actually embarrassed to share the times I've been waking up).  I'm hoping that this will wear off soon and I can get back to my normal routine.   Have any of you girls ever experienced this?  I would love to hear any of your stories & advice on how to deal with this fatigue!

All in all, it was a really nice visit, but there really is no place like home :)

Here's the rest of my week in pics:

  1. Your baby pineapples are so freaking cute! Did you just buy a pineapple plant? Is it easy to care for? I have a serious black thumb. As far as IUDs, I thought about doing it, but it completely freaks me out. The whole "it could burst through the uterine wall" part terrifies me! PS. Any tips on relaxing during travel? I am such a nervous flier!

    1. Hi Leslie! Yes, I just bought a potted pineapple plant from the farmers market about a year ago, this is the 2nd time its produced pineapples! Its super easy to care for! As for relaxing during flights, I travel so much that its not really an issue anymore and if for some reason it is, I'll just have a glass of vino and that does the trick :)
