Today, while looking in this….
I came across this….
Is it just BEAUTIFUL!? The pink…I love the pink!
It looks good with everything in the room…
The color is Pink Begonia by Benjamin Moore. This seems a bit different than the picture but I think we all know how paint color goes!
For a while I’ve been thinking about painting our dinning room. Our entire house is the same color in every room. Before we moved in we paid a lovely $5k for it all to be the shade of Macadamia. Do not get me wrong, I love Macadamia but I think a little more variety might be nice. I thought maybe I would wallpaper the bathrooms with a nice wallpaper. That is still up in the air though. Especially considering we aren’t going to be here forever and wallpaper can be expensive! I’ve seen a few pink rooms in magazines lately and the one above really caught my eye. Painting my dinning room pink…is that crazy? If I don’t do pink, I was thinking maybe a green? I found the below room in the same House Beautiful. The shade was not listed (that I could find). I don’t have any dominant colors currently in my dinning area besides brown wood furniture and black/cream chairs. One set of chairs are black & cream damask and one set are black and cream toile. My only concern is the dinning room is right off the entryway. There are french doors on the dinning room, but we always leave them open. After talking briefly with my friend Kristen, whose mother is an interior designer, she said my entryway would probably pick up whichever shade I pick. I don’t think that is such a bad thing but I probably need to do some testing or research. Another option is to maybe just paint one wall! I will keep you all updated!
Meet Ben. He is an app. He is awesome. You can take pictures of things and it will find the shade of paint in the BM library that is closest to your picture. Um, cool? yes.
These are fresh pink flowers on my night table. I took this pic…
Ben picked gypsy pink! FUN huh?
How was everyone’s hump day? Mine was good. The day started out VERY rainy. You know what I need? A raincoat! I don’t care where it is from or really what it looks like. I probably need a solid color since I’ll be wearing it for work. I need a hood. I think I have a raincoat with no hood. What good is that?
I had my hystersonogram (HSG) today. Let’s just say, I hope you all don’t have to have one. It was quite unpleasant. I went through two check-in points. In the 2nd waiting area, there was a pregnant lady and a couple who were also expecting. I thought to myself, I wish I was expecting. For about half a second, I thought why don’t they separate the pregos and the non pregos? (** I want to add: I very rarely, if ever, feel this way..I think it had something to do with me about to get my uterus “checked” and not being able to control the outcome..=hormonal). Right at that second, a younger pregnant couple walked right past me coming out of their sonogram. They just found out they were having a baby girl! The girl was crying and the guy was calling people. I almost lost it. I was so happy for them and I wanted to go give them a hug, haha. I don’t care boy or girl…hopefully some day that is hubby and I 🙂 I’m ALWAYS happy for those who are pregnant or have a had a baby. God had a plan for them just like he does for me! I finally got back to the room…the dark x-ray room with a HUGE piece of machine in the middle of the floor. The nurse helping me was SO sweet. I get in a hospital gown and the blue socks. Let’s see..how much detail could you guys possibly want? I don’t think this is really TMI. Sorry if you don’t agree! The nurse did tell me it is usually different for everyone…as far as the pain and how they react. I sit on table and answer questions from the nurse. I start getting a bit nervous. I tell her my husband offered to come but I told him it wasn’t a big deal. She said that was probably good because he wasn’t allowed in the room with me. The radiologist comes in who is also extremely nice and gives me a talk telling me what will take place. She tells me she will be telling me again as she is actually doing the procedure. No, I do not know all the “terms” or lingo but it went something like…. They put in the tool that basically “opens” things up. Probably similar to what they do for a pap. Instead of removing, they clamp it on. Then, insert a catheter into cervix. A balloon like object starts to blow up while dye goes to the places it should. Once everything is in place, the table began to move and the machine began to take it’s pictures. It did seem like it lasted 10 minutes..but I think it was only about 5. They constantly asked me “how are you?” “are you okay”….yes…yes..yes. I don’t even think I was breathing, haha. When it was over ,they had me stay laying down for a bit in case I started feeling sick. It wasn’t the worst pain I’ve ever had but it was bad cramps and some are still happening. The radiologist had me look at the screen and showed me what was what. She DID tell me that my tubes were clear and the dye was moving right along. She said in her eyes, everything looked just right as it should! 🙂 She did say I must wait to see what the doctor thinks before having any results set in stone. I guess there is a chance he may see something he doesn’t like. I am praying the doctor agrees with the lady who has taken LOTS of video/pics of uterus’, right? ahhh. I’m not a fan of waiting or anticipation. I’m hoping I get called to schedule an appt or even a call on the phone. I’ve talked to my fertility nurse about 5 times this week. She is awesome.
This afternoon, since I feel like my insides have been twisted and I have cramps, I’ve been relaxing. I’ve watched Pretty Woman, Made of Honor & part of Bounce. I was going to watch Bridget Jones Diary but hubby came in to watch Primetime with me in bed. We are Primetime, Dateline & 20/20 junkies! He ALSO grilled me a piece of salmon! It was so yum. I should have taken a picture of it because the grill marks were beautiful. You know what I’ve decided? My favorite sauce or dipping sauce for salmon….soy sauce & honey. Very little of each really but I love it. I love the sweet and salty mix..always have!
I feel like this post is getting long and I’m rambling. Sorry! Blame the pain med.
Thank you all for the sweet comments from my last post..and every post really!
love love! ~ Megan
