I celebrated the return to reality by waking up with a cold and a fever. I'm now going on day four of being sick and I'm ready to go crazy. Let me just say, having a fever during 90+ degree weather just sucks. My poor kids were forced to stay home the entire week and we had to cancel all our plans. Sorry, kids, but your mama can barely move!
Here are my favorites from my stuck at home sick week:
A fantastic new book! I bought The Good Girl while I was shopping over the weekend and couldn't wait to read it. I got my chance on Tuesday morning. I had to cancel Liam's physical therapy session since I was sick, so I was faced with a quiet morning. I thoroughly enjoyed my hot tea and quickly read through half the book!
The last book I read was The Girl on the Train and I loved it so much. I didn't think another book would be as good, but this one delivers. It's hard to put down but I want to make it last more than a few days!
The perfect birthday gift for my husband! Grant's birthday is on the 24th and I'm going to surprise him with his very own JORD watch. He is so jealous of my JORD watch and I know he's going to love it! If you haven't checked out JORD yet, make sure you do. Their wood watches are simply stunning!
A picture of Lily from the 4th of July made it into the newspaper. She was so excited! I just adore this sweet little girl so very much! (And, yes, we wear fancy dresses on boring Summer days!)
An awesome new show called Word Party is premiering on Netflix TODAY! It looks like it's perfect for Lily and Liam! #StreamTeam
A few weeks ago, I found three adorable Back To School chalkboards in the Target Dollar Spot. I have big plans to use them on the first day of school, but I need four. I searched all the nearby Targets over the past few weeks with no luck. I found a good alternative! It's meant to be a wreath, but it's perfect for Liam's first day of preschool. I picked up a pencil banner while I was at it. I have quite the love affair with the Target Dollar Spot! We still have nearly 2 months of Summer left, but I like to be prepared!
Now that it's Summer, I'm living in sunglasses. My eyes are SO light-sensitive. My husband teases me about being a vampire, because as soon as I set foot in sunlight without wearing sunglasses, I cringe and immediately close my eyes. Needless to say, I try not to leave without sunglasses and I try to keep extra pairs stashed in my car and my purse just in case.
I'm always on the hunt for quality frames and I was recently introduced to Warby Parker. Warby Parker frames are made by a 150-year-old Italian family-owned company. They just released their final collection in their #SeeSummerBetter campaign, and the frames are beautiful.
Not only are they made from durable materials, but they also feature scratch-resistant polarized lenses that provide 100% UV protection. Sign me up! You can shop the entire collection HERE.
They also offer a beautiful Summer eyeglasses collection!
Even when I'm sick, this kid brightens my day!
I hope you all had a wonderful week! What's on the agenda for the weekend? The main thing on my list of things to do is get rid of this cold!!! (And, of course, parenting.)
