Sometimes I feel like I'm running in circles, that's why I think it's so very important to have a day to relax from time to time. Saturday was my day. I got to sleep in a little and then I headed to the spa for a massage. (I went by the spa when they were having their grand opening and they were doing all sorts of fantastic deals. I managed to book an hour long massage for only $19!!!) After my massage I picked up a cup of chocolate doughnut holes and a cup of pumpkin spice cappuccino, and headed home to relax.
Later that night Chad and I went out to a nice restaurant for dinner, followed by watching the OU game at home.
It was such a great day....too bad I can't live like that every day.
So last week I got to go shopping with my mom and aunt in Okc. While I was there I took a load of clothes to the resale shop and used the money to buy a new pair of jeans. Well, I wore them to school on Friday (jeans day) and was going about my day...until 2nd hour. I was in the middle of giving a quiz when all of the sudden I herd a "pling" and felt my pants loosen...yep...my button popped off. They were all busy working and I don't think any of them noticed the pure panic that was on my face.
Thankfully I was wearing a long shirt and the teacher next door had a safety pin that I could use. I took the jeans back to the Buckle last weekend and they were able to fix them! I made them promise that it wouldn't happen again. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad
So this wasn't my greatest idea...I bought some Halloween candy a little early this year, so now there's a giant bowl of candy sitting on our sofa table. Bad idea. I think I've eaten a handful every time I've walked by. Hurry up trick-or-treaters!!!!
I FINALLY got the results from all the tests today. They said that all of my levels are in the normal range and they weren't concerned with anything they found on the ultrasounds! Yea! I'm so thankful that it wasn't anything major and they didn't have to remove it. They gave me a script for Provera, which will hopefully get everything back on track. Right now I'm just trying to be patient and trust God.
So I found this stencil that I really like... I was going to cover some canvas with different upholstery fabric and put it above the couch in the living room. I've been waiting to do it until I could go to my favorite fabric shops in OKC. In the mean time I've had these canvases just sitting in the living room. I've always wanted to paint on canvas, but I am far from an artist. I'm also extremely indecisive. The canvas would have remained white for a year if I had to paint something by hand. However I found this stencil that I loved and then I had an idea...
Now I just need to decide what to do on the large canvas. Any suggestions? I was thinking a saying or something to do with fall. I'd like to be able to change them for each season.
Here's the same stencil in the bathroom.

Yesterday I went to McCune Brooks Hospital in Carthage, MO for my ultrasounds. I've driven by it a few times, but this was my first time inside and I was pretty impressed. It's very new and seems more like a hotel rather than a hospital. Everyone I came in contact with was over-the-top friendly and helpful. They even have escorts that walk everyone to where they need to go. It's the small things like that that help take away the stress. Anyway, I've had these types of ultrasounds done before and it really wasn't bad at all this time. I was much more relaxed than the first time I had them done. I talked with the guy running the ultrasound machine and asked if I could watch the screen. He let me and he described what they were looking for, but he couldn't tell me what they were finding...the doctors have to be the ones that do the reports. I tried to look for the 'black circles,' but I really have no clue what I was looking at. I seriously don't know how anyone is able to read that thing. It just looks like static on a black and white tv. Oh well. They said my doctor would call me soon with the results. I didn't get a phone call today, but hopefully I will tomorrow. I don't really think it's any big deal because I'm not really in any pain or anything. Hopefully it's just something that will go away on it's own. I have several small cysts, and they said that's perfectly fine. It's just a problem when they get too big. That's all I know for now. :)
I'm totally not creative, but I'm good at following directions. Most of the things I create are inspired by something else I've seen. This was my first fall project...
It was really pretty simple. I bought a variety of cheap pumpkins and just spray painted them silver. I have them scattered all throughout the house. It doesn't matter what they're made of. I just bought whatever was on sale. Some are wood, others are foam, and a few are ceramic. Once you spray paint them, you really can't tell the difference.
Let me just say, it's awesome to have great friends that I can count on to pray for me. I am so blessed! For those of you that I didn't get to talk to, here's the update: The doctor felt a cyst on my right ovary today...I felt it too once she started pressing on it. She scheduled me for two ultrasounds in the morning. One on the inside and one on the outside. Once they get a better look at it, then they'll decide what they need to do. This isn't really a shock. I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). I've never had a problem with it other than being irregular...until now. I really love my doctor. She's very comforting and explains things in a way that I can understand what she's talking about. She doesn't rush off, but stays and answers any questions I have. For that, I'm very thankful.
So I just changed my settings to 'private' instead of 'open to all.' Hopefully I didn't leave anyone off of the invite email. It wasn't intentional if I did. I want my friends and family to have full access. I really don't have any secrets or anything, it just weirds me out that total strangers know stuff about me. I want to post pictures of my house and write about everything that's going on without worrying about some creep-o being able to read it.
