Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Happy Friday! Here’s a quick post for today, and I hope hope HOPE I’ll be able to write more next week!

1–“Spending November” from The Girl Who Loved to Write

I just love Chelsea’s to-do lists for the month. This one I am ALL OVER because it includes so many things that I both need and want to do! Christmas list? Already started! Drink hot apple cider? Done!

2–Poor Little Ears

Welp, it’s official: Alice is having tubes put in her ears on the 15th. While I am so happy that she will finally have some relief from the pain and fevers (and apparently will hear better, too), I definitely got choked up when I heard words like “pre-op” and “anesthesia.” I know it’s a routine procedure, but send a few prayers our way that day, if you don’t mind!

3-“Things to Do in Charlotte with Kids” from A Healthy Slice of Life

At some point, I definitely want to take Alice to Charlotte. It looks like such a fun city, and I’m obsessed with several bloggers from that area. Thanks to Brittany, now I know that there are so many things that I can do with Alice while I’m there!


Because I listen to Here to Make Friends, I was able to hear a preview of season 2 of the podcast IVFML. This is a podcast hosted by a couple as they struggle through the stages of infertility, but it’s done in such a personal, real, and funny way that I both laughed and cried along with them. Yes, this is accurate. On my way back to work after a meeting, I was driving through Baltimore City CRYING as I listened to one of the episodes from the first season. But at the same time, I laughed out loud so many times, and they have one of the most perfect infertility quotes of all time: “Even Beyonce didn’t get Blue Ivy the first try.”

5–Dr. Deluca, Stat!

I always thought that Giacomo Gianniotti (Dr. Deluca on Grey’s Anatomy) was attractive, but is it just me, or has he gotten so much hotter this season? Thoughts?

  1. GIRL YES to Dr. Deluca. I am so excited at the idea that he & Meredith may be an item.
    Ahhh – prayers for your sweet baby. Just keep in mind – the surgery is so fast. Like, before you even get a chance to get comfortable, they’ll be calling you back to recovery. Take something to distract you for a short period of time!

  2. I agree with Dr. Deluca being on my radar this season, too. Wonder who he will end up with?? Thinking of you and Alice on the 15th! I know it’s scary to send your kids off for procedures. Everything will go great and I hope you see some quick results.
