More Sickness, Eggs, and Other Fun

Just when I thought we were all recovered from our recent sickness, I came down with a head cold over the weekend. Man! Who is ready for spring?! This cold and flu season has really gotten the best of us with Sadie’s ear infection, the stomach flu, and my cold.

I missed the baby shower I was supposed to go to on Saturday, but I still managed to get the funfetti cookies I baked delivered to the shower.

I missed out on church on Sunday, too. I had a fever on Saturday night, so I didn’t think it was a good idea to bring my germs into the church nursery the next day. I always miss being with our church family when we’re sick or away. Our time at church is like a refreshment from the world each week, if that makes sense. I’m really looking forward to feeling totally normal and being with our people later this week!

Speaking of cookies, I also made graham cracker chocolate chip cookies over the weekend. They were good–Jimmy even said they were blogworthy–but I think they need marshmallows. So, basically I want to make s’mores cookies. I’ll share the recipe if I pick up some marshmallows and try again soon!

Okay, onto the topic of eggs.

Farm fresh eggs

My sister-in-law’s future father-in-law (did that make sense?!) has a chicken coop and gives away the eggs. My SIL casually asked if Jimmy and I would want some and I think I scared her by how excited I got. Of course we want local eggs!

I had my first egg on an english muffin for lunch today and it was delish.

Other fun things of note:
-Sadie and I did a puzzle together at the library.
-Jimmy and I are slowly working on getting Sadie to sleep in her crib at night. This has been so helpful.
-On the nights we manage to get Sadie to sleep in her crib before we go to bed, Jimmy and I have been watching Hallmark movies together. We like to laugh about the plot and how cliche it is, but we’re enjoying our alone time so much!
-I just started reading this book and I’m enjoying it so far.
-Jimmy and I are going bowling with our church this weekend and I’m excited. I’m horrible at bowling, but it’s so fun!
-We dressed Sadie in a dinosaur suit over the weekend and we’re still cracking up at how cute/funny she was in it.

Now onto a few pictures to go along with the fun things of note!

Okay, this post officially feels all over the place! As usual. I feel like that’s a post in and of itself; I feel all over the place since having a baby. It’s amazing and wild and such a learning experience.

Speaking of babyhood, Sadie just woke up from a nap so I better finish this post! She turned five-months-old yesterday and I’m thinking of actually writing an update on her for once… yay or nay? I always enjoy reading them on other blogs, and I’m sure I’ll love looking back on it. Let me know what you think!

Are you excited for spring?

Do you like bowling?

Ending the Sick Daze and Cake Baking

Hey! Well, Jimmy and I are finally starting to feel better since our sick daze last week. Yay! I ended up at the doctor earlier this week and was diagnosed with a sinus infection.

I had a feeling that would be the case, as similar to last time I had a sinus infection, my teeth hurt every time I did anything that would shake my body or head (apparently, your sinuses can press on your oral cavity if they’re swollen…lol). Thankfully, I was able to get some antibiotics and am on the mend.

Jimmy and I were talking about how thankful we are that we live in a country where we can simply go to the doctor and get medicine. From the time I went to the doctor to when I was taking my first dose of antibiotics was only a few hours. What a blessing.

I’ve been spending the week working (pet sitting and real estate work/photography) and wedding cake baking! Surprisingly, I don’t have a lot of pictures from the week. I have one from pet sitting and one from Starbucks.

It turns out Starbucks has pretty tasty smoothies! The one I had was chocolate and banana flavored.

While I didn’t take a lot of pictures, I did film two vlogs. In one week! Crazy.

The first one was completely random. I was a total sick zombie and had awkward encounters with the people who replaced our gutters. I’m so glad we had our gutters and fascia replaced! It makes such a difference in the look of our house 🙂

I filmed the wedding cake baking vlog on Thursday, and was starting to feel better and less zombie-ish. I’m getting nervous for the big baking day!

Well, I’m going to get going. I have a busy weekend ahead! I’m excited for Saturday because I’m going to a ladies lunch at our church. It’s always such a fun time of fellowship and great food.

What are you doing this weekend?
