Lucky Me!

i've never been accused of being lucky before. in fact, my kind of luck goes something along the lines of what's going on this weekend:

we're headed to the beach in the morning. it was supposed to be a trip for me to be able to run the half marathon i started training for at the end of december. that was, until my RE told me no more running. from the time of the trigger shot to the beta i can do anything that doesn't bounce me, which rules out the one thing i was training to do! the best part is that i already paid for the non-refundable race. oh well. at least i'll get my t-shirt and a little vacation out of it, since we already rented a condo for the weekend. plus, my 2 best friends are running it, so we can hang out with them and their other halves as well as root for them while they show me up. ;)

however...i'm hoping that i'm seeing signs that my luck is changing. what signs am i seeing, you ask? well, for starters, the way everything finally came together for us to be able to do the IUI. that's sign #1. sign #2 is that i won 2 (not one, but two!) give-aways back to back recently. how is that even possible? i never win anything! i can't even tell you how many give-aways i've entered, it's got to be somewhere in the hundreds range, but nothing, nada, zip. then, all of a sudden, out of the clear blue, i won two? yay me!

the first was from miss mac. it was an absolutely precious vera bradley binder clip & pocket notebooks set. love, love, love it! (i hope to be able to mark OB appts and note my pregnancy symptoms in the notebooks soon. ;) )


the second was from foxy. this time i got to choose a fertility bracelet from bloomingtastic on etsy. her stuff is adorable and i'm totally in love with the bracelet i chose. (hopefully the fertility enhancing stones will work their magic on my lady bits!)

thank you two so much for doing the give-aways (and for choosing such fabulous prizes)!!! they are both amazing bloggers and i'm totally addicted to reading their posts. if you haven't visited them yet, you are seriously missing out. so, get your buns over there and follow them! :)

while i try not to put too much stock in luck, seeing fortuitous things happening in my life, whether big or small, really gives me hope. plus, now i can't help but cross my fingers, wish on stars, and knock on wood. this luck things is becoming a compulsion!

You're welcome, enjoy! Sounds like you are on a lucky roll and I hope it keeps going!

Two signs, two awesome gifts...I sense a theme!!! Maybe I should keep two pairs of fingers crossed for doubly-awesome news in two weeks. ;)

Enjoy your weekend!!!

I love your lucky streak! April has certainly been a lucky month for our household!

After all the unlucky that we've all been through it is hard to believe sometimes that there are good things out there waiting for us. I know dear Carlia that there are many good lucky things waiting for you just around the next bend. You post remind me actually of a song that I love. I posted the lyrics and a video link on my blog last year - check it out: http://foxypopcorn.blogspot.com/2010/08/good-times-around-bend.html

Love to you dear woman! and may the luckiness continue!
