Y'all this week! SO MUCH BETTER. We are all sleeping and not feeling like crap. I was at the end of my rope on Friday when I took us to the doctor and both our doctors said there was nothing wrong and there was nothing they could do. Luckily, a few early bedtimes and one much needed haircut later (and three weeks later) things are so much better. Part of the problem was that I was counting my workout as my "me time" and thinking that was all that I needed. On Saturday, I woke up early to catch the Cross Country meet and then to go get my haircut. It is amazing what an hour in a stylist chair and a large latte can do for a girl. I felt so much better and actually was able to make some decisions.
pictures that my friend Hayden took!
We FINALLY got a rug for our dining room. Unfortunately, Nimitz decided to christen it on Saturday night. Apparently, a bag of cough drops doesn't do good things for a dog's stomach. I'll spare you the details but it took us a hour to clean up the rug's baptism.
I indulged in a glass of wine while watching the debate last night. Five minutes in and the glass of wine was already empty. All I can say... can we not and in the wise words of a friend, "Can we get a Brad and Angelina debate", THAT would be a debate worth watching. How did they break up?!
In mom of the year news: After having a pretty bad week I was determined to run some errands on Thursday even though Isla was grumpy. We headed into Michaels and as she was fussing I was trying to explain to the sales lady that was staring at me that she was teething really bad. I set off and in an effort to make her laugh I quickly picked up a witch's hat to stick on her head. As SOON as I put it on her head I realized that it was not in fact a headpiece but a decoration that had metal inside. When I went to take it off it was stuck on Isla's head and I had to yank it off resulting in SCREAMING and scrapes on her head. I awkwardly waved to the sales lady and said "those teeth." To make matter worse, I had to explain to the doctor the next day why my kid had scrapes all over her head. whoopsie.
We also found out this week that Isla is the opposite of basic and I am pretty sure is allergic to pumpkin. If your kid isn't allergic to pumpkin, these muffins are SO good. I also made this chicken dish (which takes longer than I thought, def more of a weekend dish) and this breakfast casserole.
