Anxiously waiting for beta #2

I drove through some wretched weather to make it to my clinic this morning for my second beta.  After I part of the way, I wanted to turn around because it was so bad.  It was the worst I've seen all year.  I kept telling myself it was going to get better, but it didn't.  It was so silly of me to attempt the drive, but when I left, I honestly didn't think it was that bad out.  Thankfully,  I made it home safely.  

The whole experience this morning seems to have accentuated my already heightened anxiety for today's call.  Today feels like my real beta.  It's almost like the first POAS and beta didn't count (for me) for some reason.  This feels a lot more real.  I'm nervous.  

I decided the best thing to do, was to fix myself some cakey goodness. 

I thought about making myself a homemade cake, but I didn't feel like it.  So, I made this semi-homemade one from the Pioneer Woman.  I've made it a few times and it is a favourite.  I prefer mine with homemade plain cream cheese icing instead though.   It's baking in the oven right now.  

It's either going to be to drown our sorrows cake or our celebration cake.   A short time will tell. 


  1. I remember how nervous and anxious I was for beta #2...the wait for torture! I'm sure today's beta will be nice and high and that will be a celebration cake!!

  2. I'm "team celebration" cake for sure!! It sounds delicious. When in doubt…add butter. My most favorite book title ever, and it just seems so appropriate in life. :)

  3. I'm putting my vote in for celebration cake! Glad you made it there and back safely!
