BFN, Pinterest Party, Home Repairs.. and Wine Time

Good morning loves. I couldn't come up with a creative title to tie this all together… 

I did it. I tested this morning for two reasons-

1) I think a lot of this missed period mumbo jumbo ordeal is mental. Mentally I am blocking AF. So maybe if I see the stark white, while it will suck royally, it will help with the mental blockade so to speak. 

2) Tonight is a girls get together. Its called a Pinterest Party, where everyone chooses a recipe or craft from Pinterest and recreates it for the group. There will be wine and drink and if I want to responsibly take part in the vino I need to know for sure that I am not pregnant. 

The results? 

Bring on the vino. 

Stark white negative. I was going to share a picture, but its depressing and I know how much BFN's suck for me to view so why keep viewing it.  

I really already knew this, but I also had some hope that maybe I would be that girl. The one waiting for her IVF cycle that miraculously ended up pregnant. Alas that girl is not me. At least not this time. At least I can have a glass of wine tonight and prepare to move forward mentally…and hopefully physically as well. Thank you all for your hope and prayers- you ladies are so wonderful at being the optimist when the pessimist in me takes over. 

So about this Pinterest Party- tonight I am making this:

If you follow the source it will lead you to the recipe. Once I make it I will share a picture of the actual results with all of you as well:) Wanna take part in a virtual Pinterest Party? Share a picture of a recipe or craft or really anything you have tried to make as a result of finding on Pinterest or the Interweb. Share a photo of the end results with all of us and let us know how you made out! No harm in failures either. Don't believe me? Then you have never been to this site- Craft Fail. Need a laugh? Having a rough day, week, or month? I will guarantee something on  craft fail will bring you a laugh and some joy :) 

I also wanted to share the photos of our home repairs - 

This is the "nursery to be" this wall you are looking at boarders the bathroom and was completely destroyed by the leaks as well as the ceiling. Its painted green so that its ready for our bundle or joy(s) no matter their gender :)


I've made the "nursery to be" my Santa workshop. I want Santa to bring me a baby to fill this nursery so I figure while I listen to my Christmas music and wrap I will pray for this room to always be filled with love and joy. I avoid this room a lot, but not this holiday. 

This is our bathroom that was completely destroyed. The titling and walls and ceiling are all new. Its so pretty now. 

The wall tiling behind the shower is completely new. It is not only beautiful, but its functional since the shower is a very wet place to begin with the tiling will help the moisture from penetrating the walls again. 

Last night Rob hung all of our art back up. It looks perfect now.


Today I am going to lunch with a girl friend and then cooking for the Pinterest Party. It will be a great distraction and hopefully AF will appear now that I removed the mental blockade.

  1. I think it should be a rule that if anyone gets a BFN, their girls should come over with wine and cheesey bread. Sounds like the perfect evening to cheer you up. Also that bread looks amaaaaaaazing! I get a lot of recipes from Pinterest but I haven't tried that one yet!!

  2. On my top ten list, I think Cheezy bread and wine are right below a BFP. That sounds amazing!

  3. Sorry for the BFN - even when you logically know it's probably negative, it still really sucks. But wine and cheesy bread and girlfriends! That will be awesome. And the bathroom looks amazing.

  6. Aw, I'm sorry you got a BFN. Wine and Cheesy bread sound like a perfect way to absorb the white test (oh, I so know what you mean about the stark whiteness of the damn tests). And girlfriends...and I LOVE the idea of a pinterest party, I've never heard of one! That sounds so fun! Enjoy yourself tonight, you deserve to let go a bit and just have a good time.

    1. It was the perfect pick me up for after a negative! I should plan those for every cycle so that I can always have something to distract me!

  7. Kasey, I'm so sorry about the BFN. As much as we expect to see them, it doesn't really make it any easier. I hope you have a great relaxing time at the pinterest party tonight. Yumm!

    I love your new bathroom! And the future nursery color is great! Our future nursery is painted yellow, so it too will be gender neutral and ready for whichever babe decides to join us!

  8. Oh friend I'm so sorry. God I know how much those negative suck. I am glad you have a distraction. Distractions are the only thing that can help me get through after something like that. 2014 will be our year. It has to be.

  9. Dang it! When I read some of your symptoms it made me think you were pregnant because the one time I got a BFP I was always starving. I'm sorry you had to see the white negative. I hope you have a wonderful time at your pinterest party, and I hope AF comes soon!

    1. Emily raised a really good point I may have ovulated really late so I suppose there is still a chance.

  10. Sorry to hear of the BFN and a lingering cycle. Maybe you just ovulated really late? Sometimes natural cycles following a medicated cycle can be extra long because O is delayed. Did you track ovulation? Either way, I'm just sorry you don't feel you'll get to be "that girl". Glad you are busying yourself...Pinterest party sounds so fun and that bread looks AMAZING!

    1. Your right I suppose there really is still a chance.. I haven't tracked O at all.. I don't even know if I ovulated. Pinterest party was great!

      Delete
    2. Well there ya go! I bet you either ovulated late or haven't ovulated at all. I mean, I hope you've ovulated but just late, so you aren't waiting forever for the outcome and also so there is still a chance for a pregnancy if you've been having intercourse!

    3. Still holding out the hope :)

  11. Sorry about the BFN. It's true; it doesn't matter how much the signs point toward BFN, it still sucks to get it. And it maybe sucks just that bit more when there are pregnancy symptoms before it. It's good that you have a party to go to and some delicious food and wine to look forward to. I find if I can keep my spirits up for those first 48 hours then things are OK. Your recipe looks delicious! I have no been cooking anything imaginative lately, but I did get inspired a little in the "craft" department - so I'll maybe share some photos in the next few days. :-)

  12. Sorry to hear this girl!!! I just know that God has that very perfect moment for the BFP! He already knows the day! I love that you do pinterest parties, btw!!! How fun!

  13. Seeing that missing line is heartbreaking every single time even when you have almost zero hope for that cycle. I love your Pinterest girls night idea and am inspired to do something like that myself. Also, the home repairs look great. We have tile up to the ceiling in our shower too and it is fantastic.
