Thumb Twiddling

It's been a while since I've updated. Basically because there is nothing going on, nothing to report. I'm on CD 30 of my crap bust cycle. Dr. J said to call him on CD 35 to start Provera if AF hasn't shown by then. I think I'm still in a state of shock after ovulating every month this year, with Clomid and without, that this cycle has been so whacked out. I just want AF to show so I can move on to my IUI cycle!

So...since that's really all I've got as far as TTC, I guess I'll talk about my Labor Day holiday. I went to NYC with my closest friend. It was a whirlwind! We packed so much into 3 days that my body is exhausted and sore. Here's the breakdown of what we did:


Eataly (Mario Batali's restaurant) for lunch. This is a must go. Most amazing homemade pasta and gelato.

Times Square - Funny story, we went into the McDonald's there for a pop and I decided to get a small fry for a snack. He said, "No fries, NEXT!" What"!? How is it possible for a McDonalds, in Times Square, no less, to not have fries. Insane.

Broadway - We got day of (50% off) Broadway tickets to the show Once. It was amazing. One of my favorite things we did all weekend.

The Rock at Rockefeller - We went up to the observation deck, amazing views! Check out the new WTC building in the back ground!

We had dinner at a vegan/vegetarian restaurant called Pure Food and Wine. It was great, but it did confirm that I do in fact LOVE cheese and meat and could never live with out it.


Cookshop in Chelsea for brunch - Seriously, they had a Bloody Mary menu. After a night of no meat, I obviously choose the Bacon Infused Vodka Bloody Mary! We ate beignets and grapefruit brulee. Wow.

We walked the High Line in Chelsea.

We took a architectural tour on a 1920's boat around Manhatten. Got some great pics and saw a lot of structures and parts of the skyline that we wouldn't have seen otherwise.

Shopped in SoHo!

Dinner at The Spotted Pig. If you are ever in NYC, I highly recommend. They had hands down the best deviled eggs I've ever put in my mouth!

Drinks at a mixology bar, Little Branch.


We went to the 9/11 Memorial site. It's beautifully done. Such a tragic event in our history and it was a little surreal be there and trying to imagine that day and time.

St. Paul's Chapel on Wall Street a few blocks from the WTC site.

West Village Shopping!

Walked Central Park, barely...it's huge!

Madison Avenue Shopping complete with macaroons from Laduree.

Ended our trip with a Grays Papaya's Hot Dog!! Yum!!

I'm back to work today and I'm exhausted. I have to somehow regroup to head to North Carolina and see my family on Thursday. Hopefully by next week, we'll be starting the Femara and getting our cycle going...not to mention we'll be done traveling for a while!

So sorry for the long, potentially annoying post about my travels, but as of right now, it's all I've got. Hopefully the next few weeks brings lots more TTC chatter!!
