Happy weekend everyone!

We’re headed up to Acadia National Park in Maine for some fun camping times. I can’t wait! I’m making a personal pledge to myself to take lots and lots of photos, with both my film and SLR cameras, and evens one video if I can manage! I’m wanting to try out the “photo an hour” challenge too that I’ve seen other bloggers do. Promise to share whatever I come back with!


Speaking of photo challenges, I’m excited to be participating in EmHart’s September photo challenge! I missed the one Belle did earlier in the year so I’m excited to give this one a try. Of course I won’t be able to blog for a few days while we’re away, so the first post will be a catch up of the first three or four photos, but that’s okay! You won’t mind, right?


 Finally, a brief cycle update: just waiting for AF. I know I’ve ovulated because I took a test temp yesterday morning and it was over 98. As soon as she arrives, we’re off to our FET cycle! I’ve got my Estrace pills at the ready, just have to pack them with me for camping, in case she decides to show up while we’re in the woods (she would, wouldn’t she). I’m still kind of in denial that it’s almost happening, and I’m nervous about a work trip I’ve got coming up in late September. What if I need to do my PEO shot on the trip? I’ll have to get one of my NYC friends or my cousin to do it, but none of them would be very keen to give me an intramuscular injection in the arse. Welp! Worry about it when I get there I suppose… if I get there.


 Happy Labor Day weekend!

    I’m going to try out EmHart’s photo contest too. I’m just a little nervous about having enough time to participate. So we will see!

    Have a fun weekend!

    Have a great time at Acadia! It’s so beautiful there and I love that you can be the first people to see the sunrise in the US.

      It was! So beautiful! Didn’t drive up Cadillac for sunrise (waaay too lazy) but I love the idea of it. 🙂

    It sounds like your feeling pretty good right now and are feeling positive about the FET! Very happy to hear this! 🙂 Enjoy your camping trip!

      I think I was when I wrote that. Now… not so much.

    Have a fabulous weekend! I’m a bit jealous 🙂 I’ve never been to Acadia, but I hear it’s beautiful.

    I can’t believe your FET is just around the corner. This summer has flown by. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
