Well, as I suspected, our weekend was filled with continued sickness for our poor kiddos. Thankfully, Knox is continually on the up-and-up, but Walker is feeling pretty crummy now. Our weekend looked a lot like this: 

I have made more trips to CVS for medicine this week and weekend than I care to count, and we have even been diffusing essential oils in the house in an effort to try anything and everything to ward this sickness off. 

I got a lot of questions about my diffuser after I posted a video of it changing colors on InstaStories, so I wanted to share the link here, too! 

I was able to sneak in a little "me" time on Saturday night, which was definitely needed after a lonnnnnnnnng week. I took a hot shower in a dark bathroom; popped a ZzzQuil; and read a couple of chapters of "The Magnolia Story" before calling it an early night. 

And even though it turned out to be a sunny Sunday -- after a yucky, cold, rainy Saturday -- it had me sitting on the couch dreaming of a beach vacation. We are taking the kids to the beach this summer, but as that saying goes, "A vacation with kids isn't a vacation. It's a trip." Ha! So, I was daydreaming of our past beach vacations -- because y'all, we are so beach people! -- and wishing I was at one of these spots right about now: 

+ Orange Beach, 2009

+ Orange Beach, 2010 

+ Antigua, 2010 {Honeymoon} 

+ Mexico, 2011

+ Miami, 2013 {Babymoon} 

+ Jamaica, 2015

So that's our weekend in a nutshell, aside from my beach dreaming. ;) So how were y'all's weekends? 

Linking up with Biana


  1. I am so sorry everyone is still sick! I hope today the boys wake up feeling much better. I ordered two of those diffusers last night!! So glad you got a little "you time".

  2. I hope sweet Walker is feeling better soon! Love living through your dreamy beach pics too!

  3. Girl, I was daydreaming about beach trips this weekend, too! Guess the dreary, rainy, January weather will do that to you. Happy Monday!

  4. I'm sorry that it was a weekend filled with sickness, but those beach vacation snaps have me dreaming of a warmer weather filled vacation soon!! I have a changing light diffuser as well from Target and I love it!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I was thinking of poor Knox all weekend! I'm glad to hear he is feeling better. I'm having such a hard time committing to a vacay this year. Half of me wants to take Cam to the beach and the other half wants to take a kid free trip before he really knows what's going on!

  6. On these crummy weather days, I find myself daydreaming about beach vacays too.
    Did I know that you honeymooned in Antigua like we did? If so, I forgot :)

  7. I feel you on daydreaming about a beach vacation! Sorry to hear your household is feeling bad! Hoping everyone feels better soon!

  8. Nooooo to the sickness still sticking around! How is that book going so far? I've been asking around and I think I want to snag a copy! The rain today is unreal and definitely makes me think of the beach as well (or at least being at home in bed cuddled up with miss A) Have a great day girl!

  9. Hope you guys have a better week this week! I'm dying for a beach babymoon. Happy beach dreaming and trip planning! xo

  10. Give me a beach, stat! Your pictures are beautiful. Sorry you had sick babies, we did too! Bless them.

    Have a great week!

  11. I am beach dreaming here too! :) Glad you had a relaxing weekend! I hope everyone is feeling healthy soon!

  12. Gosh I really hope they get better and stay better soon! All your beach pictures have me dreaming of a beach vacay! That's going to be such a fun trip!!!

  13. I've been daydreaming about a tropical vacay too!
