To Clarify

Since a few of you have asked and I was very vague in my last post...

No more shots for awhile. On Monday I was supposed to have a frozen embryo transfer, but the embryologist called that morning to say that neither of the embryos survived the thawing process. I didn't anticipate this since they told me that they have a 70% success rate for thawing embryos. I guess I figured at least one would make it. Nope.

So, we're back to square one. I plan on taking a much needed break for (at least) the summer. Drinking this, riding this, and planning our dream vacation to one of my favorite cities in the world.

Things I'm Liking This Week

This plaid platter and matching set of salad servers from Darlybird. Everything is 25% off for the next three days with the code COMEWHATMAY. I may or may not have ordered both on a whim this morning.

This documentary, Waste Land, was the best movie I've seen in a long time. If you like Brazil, art, or the earth, I'm pretty sure you'll love this movie. It maybe starts off a little slow, but it is a beautiful film.

This Burdick's bunny which Dan gave me for Easter. Could the polka dot scarf be any cuter? He also has a little cotton (white chocolate) tail. Good work, Dan. It's so cute I almost don't want to eat it. Except it's Burdick's and the best tasting chocolate ever.

It's bittersweet, but no more of these in my bum. And yes, the needle is literally that long.

I have a general dislike for commercials. But I especially dislike commercials about babies. I swear every time I work out the gym and turn on my elliptical's TV (did you know that a membership to Planet Fitness is cheaper than a basic cable subscription?), there is a commercial for pregnancy tests, diapers or baby food. These commercials usually show a typical white family having a typical white baby in a typical American household.

So imagine my surprise when I watched this commercial for Pampers and actually loved it. Good job, Pampers marketing people, for realizing that we do not fit in a box and there are as many paths to parenthood as there are parents. Too bad it's only airing in Canada.
