Miracle of Miracles!!

Playing at the Desert Ridge District.
She may look innocent, but this girl is crazy!
We had a picnic the night before V-day.
Lily loves her dada.


These were suckers we made that week for our V-day cards.

I am happy to report that we had the best Valentine's ever last Saturday. I didn't think it would be possible since I've been SOOO sick, but MIRACLE OF MIRACLES... I was healed for the day! I was hooked up with 2 Zofran and wanted to save them for a special occasion. We had plans for Saturday so when I started feeling sick that morning, I thought "I think today is the day." If you don't know what Zofran is, let me tell you.... it's a miracle drug!! Actually, what's really weird is that only Ondansetron (which is the generic form of Zofran) and ONLY the kind that dissolves in your mouth, is the only kind that works for me, and that's what I had. Honestly, it was life changing! I felt normal pretty much the whole day, and I've been far from normal for the past 5 weeks, so it was wonderful! We started the day running a few errands, and then we spent the morning out at the Desert Ridge shopping center. They have a Marshalls/Home Goods store, Ross, Joann's, Target, Old Navy, and a TON more. We weren't really looking for anything in particular and actually didn't buy a thing, but it was still so much fun. We had CPK for lunch, which is always so yummy, and then stopped by the fudge shop before we left. We got this huge, delicious carmel apple that was covered in caramel, white chocolate, milk chocolate, peanut butter, and everything else fattening you could imagaine. It was great!! We stopped by at my parents afterward and just hung out for a bit before we went home, and made ourselves some steak, garlic potatoes, asparagus, and for dessert.... white chocolate covered strawberries. We had so much fun and loved having our sweet Lily with us all day. We just chilled the rest of the night and watched a movie.... very simple but OH SO NICE! I was sooo grateful I could feel good for the day and was very sad when the drugs wore off early the next day. It's all good though. I'm back to barfing tons each day, but was able to get some more Zofran (although not the dissolvable kind) and am grateful that helps for the most part! AREN'T DRUGS WONDERFUL?!?!? Haha. ;)

I love Zofran. I couldn't have survived my last pregnancy with out it. The disolvable worked best for me as well. I cut them in half and savored them. Good luck, I might just need to call you and see if Lilly can come play at our house one morning while you have some peace!

Lily is such a doll! I hated pregnancy sickness I seriously thought I was going to die or the baby inside me would! It was terrible! I am glad you had a day of not feeling sick! I hope things get better!

I do nelieve I gave you your first Zofran, however not the dissolving kind. I wish I would have known about htose because this pregnancy the regular ones aren't working for me. I HATE feeling naseaus all day. We really wanted twins so that we could be done, I hate being pregnant so much but oh well, I better get used to it because I still have ALONG ways to go! Congrats again!
