Folks. What a week.
My mom came down for a visit and became violently ill with food poisoning within a day of arriving.
We all felt terrible for her. I mean, it's one thing to be sick. . .it's another thing to be sick and not be in your own bed.
Justin and I were both stuck down with what we are fairly certain was the Nora-virus last year, and it was the sickest either of us has ever been.
I mean, when we said, "in sickness and in health" during our wedding vows (we actually didn't say that, we used personalize vows, but just go with me here. . .) , we finally got to see what that meant.
Game-changing sickness. So I truly knew how poor mom felt this week.
Anyway, she suffered all Monday morning/Tuesday, but has been much much better now. She even helped me rearrange my office yesterday. In fact, I knew she was going to make it when she said she began to dream of going to Target and redecorating her home. That's the doodle I know and love.
Some highlights of the week are . . .
*can you feel how windy it was this day just by looking at this photo?
My friend Kacia made me this beautiful scarf. I requested a cat shape for the button, and she kindly obliged and made (made!) this cute little wooden cat.
People keep looking at it when I'm at the store check out, or somewhere that I deal closely with strangers, and I truly want to hear their thoughts.
"Oh wow, that girl is cray cray."
"What a beautiful scarf. Cats are the best."
"Nothing screams cat lady like wearing a wooden cat on your scarf."
I'm assuming most are thinking what I'm thinking, which is, "that is the cutest scarf in all the land."
But seriously, it's pretty perfect. It's not huge where your hair is all messed up and you feel choked, but it's warm and cozy.
I love these blue earrings from The Dotted Poppy. It was hard to choose between the ones I'm wearing and these. It's fun to wear jewelry that my mom makes! She's quite talented ( in more ways than one ) and her prices are fantastic. Check out her shop on Etsy!
4. Part two of the series on Blogging goes up next week!
This, my friends, is so true.
Linking up with this tiny cutie here.
Enjoy your weekend!
