What. A. Weekend. I did not evade the tummy bug, but I got all of my baking done for Jimmy’s cousin’s wedding! My biggest prayer all week was not to get the wedding party sick (we all go to church together), to be able to complete all the baking, and for Jimmy to DJ at the wedding and not be sick.
Thankfully, everything came together in God’s perfect timing 🙏
I finished up the 13 dozen cupcakes and three layer wedding cake on Friday afternoon (with lots and lots of double hand washing and sanitizing!!) and then fell sick that night. I had a high fever and ended up calling the midwives who told me to go to the emergency room if it didn’t come down. With a bit of Tylenol and rest, it came down a little and I was so glad to avoid a hospital visit!
I was out for the count on Saturday but had to peel myself off the couch to deliver the baked goods to the venue and decorate the cake with fresh flowers from the florist.
Just before leaving to deliver everything to the venue, guess who slipped out of our front door… Niva!!! She had a fun little joy run around the neighborhood while we frantically looked for her. Just as we were about to give up and head out because we were going to be late, she just… showed up. Our dog is going to give me a heart attack!!
Being pregnant while sick and having to to something important was tough but I toughed it out, came home, and crashed. Lots of laying around and sleeping were all I could manage. Jimmy and Sadie had a lovely time at the wedding and his DJ gig went well!
I was sent lots of beautiful pictures and videos and loved seeing all the festivities and everyone having such a nice time 💜
I so wish I could have been there. I was really looking forward to this wedding! I did not want to spread any germs to anyone and there was just no way I could have got off the couch 😂
I was sent all of the above pictures by my family and this was what I sent back…
Yep, I was not going anywhere. The good thing was that I had full reign of the tv! That basically never happens because if we have the tv on, it’s usually playing Sonic the Hedgehog so Sadie will sit still while I take a nap 😂
I used my tv time to watch some shark-themed shows! I learned how aggressive bull sharks are and vowed to never canoe in the ocean after watching Jaws vs. Boats. Shark Week officially begins July 24th and I am excited 😬 Maybe I’ll bake another challah shark?!
It’s Sunday as I type up this post and I was finally able to stomach some coffee, so that’s a win! I’m just resting up and thanking God that everything worked out this weekend!
