Today’s post is all over the place. So I apologize up front. We are sort of a hot mess over here. While valentines have been crafted and teacher gifts are tucked away and ready, it’s not so pretty in the rest of the house. Our sweet six year old is sick and the week has come to a screeching halt. To all the mom’s out there who are or have been tending to sick ones, know you are not alone. The laundry is piling up, beds are destroyed, the fridge is bare, and that’s all okay with me. I think a sick little one is a gentle reminder to slow down and just hold onto the ones we love. We have been reading up a storm and cuddling in between naps. And if she would rather throw all of her blankets on the floor and sleep on top of a sleeping bag, so be it. Oh, and yes. My son did in fact add two flowers to his tree wall in the photo below. I am okay with that, too. And a few shout oust are in order today. First and foremost, thank you to my girl, Moira, who reminded me that I have yet to give an update about our master bathroom project. We have not dropped the ball entirely. Although it might appear that way. We are in the middle of meeting contractors. If you are in the Southern California area and LOVE one you have worked with, please don’t be shy about shooting me an email with the recommendation. And Moira, I will keep you posted on our progress! … The next shout out is to my dear friend, Sheila. She is hooking all of you up with this tidbit. She texted me that the Martha Stewart brass plate labels are on clearance at Staples. Well, hello! They are normally $4 for six and are currently on sale for $1. I basically begged my hubby to come home early so I could go grab a few. Maybe I grabbed ten packs. I am not really sure. In any event, thank you, Sheila! … … Another shout out to Cassie for the great idea for sweet treats for the kiddos’ teachers. I whipped up some cupcakes and have our jars ready to go. You can see all of the details here. Yummy. … Lastly, I did a little something for myself. Which I never ever seem to do these days. I hooked myself up with my first ever shellac manicure. Not gonna lie. I am loving it. And I was inspired by Megan to paint the ring finger a different color. … I am now going back to cold compresses on my daughter’s sweet forehead and reading books. It’s where I am supposed to be right now. And I feel crazy blessed to be able to take care of her. And to the mommies who feel like a wreck this week, I feel you. And we’ll get em’ next week!
