I’d like to check you for ticks

13 Jun

I’m bacccckkkk! 😉 And ya know what? I completely missed my 1 year anniversary for IGH last Thursday! So happy belated anniversary blog! It’s been real and even though every week I set a goal to blog at least twice and sometimes only MAYBE blog once, I’m at peace with that and will continue on…I love my blog and I love my readers! I feel like it’s been a great way to share my experiences through life, healthy living, and infertility and it has also been very therapeutic for me!

Because it’s Thursday and the sun is shining, here are some randoms from me!

1. I made this Gnocchi Zucchini Ribbons & Brown Butter recipe (Shout out to Natalie from TheSweetsLife.com, her recipes are delish!) on Tuesday night and I thought it was very good. I love gnocchi (especially from Olive Garden) and when the store was all out of ravioli that I had planned to make I picked up some gnocchi and it was our very first time having it at home. David liked the recipe but wasn’t a fan of the gnocchi. Me on the other hand, I loved it and wanted to share the recipe because it was very easy and summery!

20130611_1802012. This should have really been number one because it was such a traumatic experience but yesterday I found this….prepare yourself….

Warning: you may get the eebie jeebies from it….and start itching and scratching….it may make you a little nauseous even (I know I did….)

20130612_101722Yep that’s right, straight from a Brad Paisley song…my very own little tick friend. Yuck! I was working and put my hair behind my ear and felt something like a scab on the outside of my ear…after touching it (yea I know…nasty!) I realized it most likely was NOT a scab and it was definitely something else; I quickly walked to the bathroom realized what it was and yanked it off. Luckily it was already dead and was only half latched (omg I think I lost my appetite…) on but if that sucker would have been hard to get off I would have probably passed out.

I believe I got it from this lovely, sweet, innocent looking gem


Some other randoms I’ve been up to (if you follow me on Instagram, yay! but you’ve probably seen a lot of these already! (sorry!))

IMG_20130607_135717Yep! Still reading it…I think I’m on page 50…come on Mallory!

    Oh eek! I am not sure I have seen a tick before! Good thing you found the little bugger 😉
    I started to read that book a couple months back and a few chapters in I lost interest. I will have to try and read it again another time.

    Hi Mallory, one question..do you like the book “the happiness project”? I’m thinking about buying it too and maybe you can give me your opinion?!

      Simone, so far I’m not too far into it. I like it kinda….but it hasn’t really given me any new info or kept my attention. Some of the tips are good but also not something I will change (like organizing closets lol and keeping them that way…) 🙂
