It's Monday, y'all! {How did that happen so quickly?} Linking up with B Loved Boston & Champagne and Suburbs today. 

I mentioned it on Friday, but y'all: this last week was the worst in our house with sickness! Ugh! It all started on Monday for Walker, and after two trips to the doctor last week, a day staying at home with him, and a couple of days leaving early from work to pick him up from "school," I finally came down with the icky stomach virus on Thursday evening. And of course this all happens when Brandon was traveling for business in Canada

So, this is basically how we spent our full weekend: 

"No more pictures, please."

Thankfully, after a frantic phone call from me at 6:15 a.m. on Friday morning, my sweet mother-in-law came over to our house and took Walker {who was feeling much better} to school while I slept the entire day. It was not pretty. She even picked him up and brought him home, fed him his evening bottle and waited with me until Brandon walked through the front door Friday evening. Y'all, never have I ever been more excited to see my husband IN MY LIFE.

We spent all weekend recovering and relaxing, and once I felt better on Saturday afternoon, Brandon got me a much-needed deep tissue massage. It was one of those where I walked in and told my usual therapist, "Just get in there." And boy, did she ever. It hurt so good. Now I think I need a massage to recover from the massage! Ha! 

Walker's new thing is to put both of his hands on your face and pull your face toward his. He'll then plop a giant "kiss" on your cheek or mouth and give the biggest grin. Seriously, there is nothing in the world sweeter than that! 

I know that this was likely the most boring of all boring blog posts ever on this Monday, but of course that's pretty much how it felt to us, too! It was nice for us to have a reason to slow down, relax and just be

Happy Monday, y'all. I'll be back tomorrow with a yummy drink recipe!

  1. I completely understand the feeling of needing a massage after your massage! Hurts so good is right! So sorry you had a rough week/start to the weekend. I am DREADING having an infant while my hubs travels. It scares the crap out of me and I applaud you and how you make it work!
