oh hey blogland! how's life? i took a serious, unexpected break. last week was rough for me. i came down with a crazy cold and pretty much didn't exist for about a week. when i get sick, i get sick. i mean can't move out of the bed, why even put on pants, binge watch netflix - kind of sick. anyway, i'm back to myself and have missed blogging so let's get caught up, shall we?
before i got sick, i had an unexpected 12 hour shift. to those who do that on a normal basis - hats off to you. but for me who averages 8-9 hours a day - it was crazy. lee had made dinner reservations for date night and had to cancel them due to my last minute work thing so when i finally got home at 9:45 on a friday night, he had this waiting. am i marrying the right person or what?!
we also received our very first shower present! this arrived on our doorstep from some very sweet people. i have been eyeing this west elm wooden tray for such a long time and it sits nicely on our island in the kitchen displaying some flowers and a candle. my first shower is in about three weeks and i'm so very excited!!
as i mentioned being MIA last week - i was finally feeling better by last weekend. being sick for 5 days straight is awful so when saturday hit i was happy to finally be able to breathe again. and that's such a blessing because my best friend/maid of honor came to see me! we started #bestfriendsaturday, as we liked to call it, with pancakes and mimosas.
followed by another trip to sycamore brewing! she brought her adorable lab, knox, to stay with us for the weekend.
it was a much needed girls weekend as lee was away on a bachelor party. and i just love this picture because it describes us perfectly.
