I know, I know…it’s actually “What I Wore Wednesday,” but since I had to go this morning and do my glucose test, it will have to be “What I Wore Thursday” this week. The glucose test was not nearly as bad as I had prepared myself for. Some women tell horror stories regarding this test, but the worst part about it was waiting for an hour with poor cell reception and limited Candy Crush lives! Here’s to hoping my results are good! Because a three hour test is not my idea of a good time.
