I was scheduled for one procedure today, but when the doctor found something irregular, they asked me to stay around to do another test.

After about 4 hours at the hospital, I was so relieved when they told me everything looked fine and let me go home.  Next up, follow up appointment in December and more tests to follow.  

On a more fun note, I was very amused by my hospital OOTD.  featuring 2 hospital gowns, 1 medical bracelet, and a pair of disposable booties.

hello from the other side

Why are all of Adele's songs so catchy? You listen to it once, and it just replays non stop in your head.

I haven't been up to much, closet cleaning/purging, medical tests and appointments, window shopping, shopping, etc...the usual.

Took a quick snap on the weekend while we were out furniture shopping.  Love this big mirror, wish I had one at home.

That's all for now, until the next time.

One of the things we picked up on during my treatment was watching Ted Talks on youtube.  I have to credit P as he was doing research on cancer treatments and stumbled across Ted Talks.  We became hooked immediately and have watched many inspiring talks that really helped me get through some rough days during treatment.

We still watch Ted Talks on a regular basis.  Last night, I came across one of the most inspiring speech ever, by Sam Berns.  If you don't know his name, I am sure you would recognize him as soon as you see him.

older and wiser

Does anyone else feel like with age you are making wiser decisions on your purchases?  I certainly feel that way.  I find that I am a lot better at putting away the sale goggles, and resisting buying impulsive wants.  I am making purchases that I love and that fits into my wardrobe and life style, which means I will get a lot of wear out of them.

Today I was wearing one of my newins (new vocab learned from instagram), the Stuart Weitzman Lowland Boots.  They are soooooo comfortable and are basically like a pair of black tight (they will go with everything).  I like these Lowlands better than my 50/50 because I find the 50/50 more chunky looking.  I have very narrow feet so the almond toe on the Lowlands are more comfortable for me.  If you are considering getting them definitely make sure you try them at the store.  I got to try on a few pairs and found that they differed in shade and fit.
