If there were some sort of contest for getting sick, I'd probably win. Or I'd come in second after my friend Lindsey. We've been hit especially hard this year, so much that we made a pact to stop getting sick. But we both failed and got sick again. At the same time. I managed to get worse every single day until I developed a fever last night and I never have fevers when I'm sick. On a positive note, I feel better than yesterday, and getting sick forced me to slow down. I stopped working when normal people working. Watched my fall shows. Relaxed. I look like I was hit by eleven trucks and haven't been able to work out all week, but I have a little more balance. And that's something I really needed right now.
My mom was in town this weekend and I was the worst host of all time. During the two days she was here, we got our nails done, went to dinner, and the randolph market. And I napped. In my defense, I cleaned my whole apartment, bought some beautiful flowers and plants, made sure I had her favorite sparkling water, and picked her up at the airport since I have this great little Nissan Versa Note c/o Nissan all week. I want to keep it forever. Such a great car.
My mom will be back next weekend so we'll get a much needed redo since last weekend sucked. We didn't even get to do brunch or go to an authentic midwest pumpkin patch.
If you're in Chicago, I hope to see you at J. Crew this Thursday!
Bought this heart and soul sweatshirt this weekend.
Buddy and Minnie's lovefest ends this afternoon. Sad to split these two loverpups up until my trip but couldn't be happier to have Gina back. Can't wait for our first post-wedding lady date.
Speaking of my trip, we're leaving for Europe in less than three weeks! It still doesn't feel real.
The premiere of Homeland was epic. I'm really loving all this fall TV. And keeping my windows open. Nothing like a crisp fall breeze.
Made the world's greatest soup a la PaleOMG. I'm going to make it every week until I can't stand eating it anymore which probably won't ever happen because it's the greatest soup ever.
I'm on season 2 of breaking bad. I started it months ago, forgot about it, and just picked it up again. I'm thinking I'll watch it on the flight to Europe. Already a little worried about that. What drugs can I take that will knock me out and I'll magically wake up in the UK?
Happy Monday, people. Hope you all have a great week!
