If you are a Mom and made it through the week without any sick kids, HIGH FIVE!
Wow, friends, it has been a much longer blog break than I had planned over the holidays. My plan was to take two weeks off to spend with friends and family over Christmas, New Years, and the kids' school break. Instead, I got the flu for Christmas that lasted 10 DAYS! I mean it KNOCKED. ME. DOWN. I have never had the flu and I certainly don't want it again! After I finally mustered a little energy back, I started having severe headaches. You know the ones where you can't read, you can't watch TV, you can't sleep or rest. Your head just HURTS. Went back to the Dr and I had a severe sinus infection. YUCK! Evidently, this is somewhat common after the flu. So I started on steroids and antibiotics and meanwhile poor Mark got the flu! #sigh (Sidenote: I had Flu B. He had Flu A. Hmmm....not from me. 🤔)
So I played single parent run around like a crazy person for a week while he recovered.
I am WAY behind with work, my "To Do" list, blogging, etc. So over the next week or so, I'll be playing catch up!
Grab a cup of coffee and here we go!
MY ABSOLUTE VERY FAVORITE MUG
Alyssa gave me this coffee mug for Christmas! I love the fact that it is her handwriting and what a thoughtful gift! A HUGE favorite!
I miss this girl when she's away at college!
I know I have mentioned Mix and Match Mama approximately 4,537 times but friends, you will LOVE her cookbooks! Easy recipes to follow and food your kiddos will eat. #winwin
Simmers is her latest cookbook and it is all crock pot recipes. #yourewelcome
THE LITTLE Cs
These two are always favorites! Carson and Cutter are full of energy and ALWAYS happy. They call themselves "best friend brothers". Melts my heart.
This is their last semester of elementary school together and they are soaking up every minute. I know they will be sad when they are on different campuses next year.
NEW DRIVER ALERT
Conner celebrated his 16th birthday this week and passed his driver's test! My goodness, he sure looks grown up. Where did the time go?
First day driving and he picked up milk for me! #momwin
I am a reality TV junkie. It's ridiculous but I just can't say "no" to The Bachelor. And last year, I discovered Sheaffer's Bachelor recaps and now Wednesday mornings are a favorite too! If you haven't read her recaps, you are missing out. Even if you don't watch the show, I promise you will laugh out loud at her comments. And this girl doesn't miss ANYTHING.
Thanks so much for being a part of my little piece of the internet. Hope your 2018 is off to a GREAT start! I'll be back next week catching up on posts of Christmas, 3 out of 4 kids birthdays, a field trip, and more.
Happy Weekend, friends!
