Glucose Test

I was actually wondering how many people would catch on to the same style girls trip happening in the Lauren Holbrook series! :) Ha! This wasn't our first trip to Phoenix - when I was in high school, my dad and brothers (and sometimes my sister) would all go to the Spring Training baseball games and Mom, Cayce (when she wasn't at the games) and I would all go shopping, eat at Paradise Bakery and then meet up with the boys for the Cheesecake Factory.

I've always had SO much fun in Phoenix!

Yesterday, I had to do my glucose test. Basically, you have to go drink this huge bottle of stuff that tastes like a flat orange soda only sugarier, wait there an hour and then get your blood drawn. It's to check and see if you have gestational diabetes.

I think we all know how I feel about needles at this point. So, I got to the lab yesterday, sat in the waiting room and in the back I can hear this:

"No....No....NO NO NO!!! AUGH!!!" This was followed by extremely loud screaming and crying.

It sounded very similar to that scene in Gone With the Wind where they are amputating the guy's leg without any pain medication except for the whole creepy shadow thing going on.

So, I sat there, clutching my magazine that I'd brought and tried to not listen to the torturing going on in the back room. It ended up being a little kid that I don't think had ever had his blood drawn before, but goodness. He came out all teary-eyed and red-faced and his poor mom was just frazzled.

I kind of felt like I was beholding my future if this baby inherits my ickiness for needles.

Last night, Jon and I ordered the dresser/changing table for our little guy's room! I am so excited for it to get here! We already have the crib, so I think once we get the dresser, we'll be set as far as furniture in his bedroom goes.

I woke up this morning to some fun news - Miss Match was downloaded over 25,000 times during the free Kindle week! WOW. That is so incredible! I'm just praying that each of those people will be drawn closer to God through reading it. So amazing!

I hope you guys are having a great Tuesday! Any big plans for you coming up this week? And moms out there - what is the one baby registry item you couldn't live without? :)

Have a fantastic day!
