But seriously now, does it? I know that you are used to looking at fertility friend, but I use an app on my ipad...but you still get the gist.
I know it doesn't necessarily mean I'm pregnant (I googled it...a lot), but it has to be a relatively good sign. It's never looked like this before. Also, there is a definite ovulation dip and a possible implantation dip. All on approximately the right days. I'm 12 dpo, tested this morning (although I am usually not a tester, I had to test [said in a whining "I'm really not guilty" voice]<--see note below)
So here's the short version of my weekend with lots of pics.
I offered to host my boss' birthday party at my house. Her birthday is on St. Patrick's day but we are having an expo out of town both she and I will not be here.
H and I potted some plants on Saturday so things would look nice. Most of them have to be in the shade or they burn during the summer.
|Back yard by back door: Croton, Oleander, Petunia|
|Back yard other side of back door: Blue Nile lilies, Croton, Oleander|
|Back corner back yard: Petunia, A climbing plant that starts with B|
|Front porch: Iris (the dog) with potted petunias, last season's maple trees.|
And put a new bush in the front yard-Iris helped- (the stupid neighbors let their dogs pee on our plants and it kills them so each year we put in a new one, this one is a little further from the sidewalk)
On Sunday (today) we had about 25 people over, so I made corned beef and cabbage, hot dogs and burgers, and a couple other random things. It was good food and good fun. I got totally sunburned (and now will have some
Recipe I always use for these events
Easy veggie pizza: makes 12-15 individual appetizer servings depending on how you slice it.
2 cans crescent rolls, roll out flat onto a cookie sheet and twist together the seams, bake as though it were a pizza crust. Cook according to heat and time on can, poke with a fork and flatten with a spatula to keep it from puffing up as needed during baking. Allow to cool
Mix together 4 oz of cream cheese softened, 1/4 cup mayo, 1/2 cup sour cream (add more of each if you like more dip) and a package of powered ranch dressing or powdered ranch dip mix. Spread evenly across cooled crust.
Add any toppings you prefer, I usually choose, shredded carrots, broccoli and cauliflower florets, and then top with shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
DO NOT BAKE AGAIN-ENJOY FRESH VEGETABLES
Healthy substitutes can be used: Low fat cheese, low fat sour cream, smart balance mayo, low fat crescent rolls.
Slice with a pizza cutter, it's just easier.
