Guys… this sickness has kicked. My. Butt.
Seriously. Being pregnant + being sick is no joke. This sucker started out as a dinky cold and turned into what is most likely bronchitis. Lovely. I’ve never been so pathetically miserable over a cold, but this one has laid me out!!
Thankfully, I seem to finally be on the mend, thanks to some meds prescribed by my doc that are ok to take while preggo. Because clearly nothing else was doing it.
So I’m hoping that now I can move forward as a healthy person. No sickness for Christmas (*crosses fingers*)
So let’s jump jnto a happier topic, shall we? Despite being sick, there were some positive moments this week that I wanted to share!
Favorite Package: New Gym Shoes!
Normally I’m really good at ignoring all of those deal sites like Rue La La and Hautelook. However, the other day Reebok was having a sale and I just couldnt look away! I’ve been in the market for new cross-training shoes and when I saw these babies for $24.99 (yes, you read that right), I couldn’t keep my finger off the BUY NOW button.
I’ll let you know what I think once I get to try them out, but I’m already in love. So. Pretty.
Favorite Sick Day Marathon: Gilmore Girls
One thing I love to do on sick days is plop myself on the couch with a good TV marathon. There is nothing quite like 6 hours of nonsense TV to make you feel better!
This time around (after clearing out my DVR), I was all about Gilmore Girls. I was so, SOOO excited to hear that they put it up on Netflix a few months ago, but I’m just now getting around to watching it. I forgot just how much I love Lorelai and Rory!
Why isnt real life like that??
Favorite Work Moment: Christmas Party
Earlier this week my office through it’s annual “graze all day” Christmas party. I dont know what it is, but I just love office Christmas parties! Maybe because it’s such a nice break from the normal, everyday routine?
Either way, we had a great time exchanging secret santa gifts, munching on food (my coworker brought this amazing jalapeno popper dip that I had to separate myself from), and hanging out. And maybe getting a little work done in there… ;-P
Favorite Baby Freckle Moment: 17 week appointment
I’m sure by the end of this thing I’ll be saying different, but right now I LOVE going to all these doctors appointments for baby freckle. The more times I can hear the heartbeat or see him/her, the better!! Bring it on!
But this weeks appointment went very well and so far things are right on track and just truckin along! And we’re going to (hopefully) be finding out some more news very soon!!!
Favorite Recent Recipe: Quick and Easy Enchiladas Verdes
I know I teased you with this earlier in the week, but I recently threw together a recipe for enchiladas verdes that ended up being not only delicious, but super easy. Like throw it all in a bowl, mix, and stuff it in a tortilla easy.
Luckily I thought to write down the ingredients in case it turned out delicious, and now I want to share it with you guys! Except, not here.
Check out my guest post recipe over on Amy’s blog!
I hope you all have a great weekend! We officially have less than a week until Christmas!!! Probably should finish my shopping…
So tell me: What are your sick day traditions? Any exciting weekend plans? Any recent purchases you’re excited about?
