Morning, Minions!

I hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend! Mine started off really well, but then I started feeling like death again. Several people had told me that I would start feeling better, but to still take it easy because mono would easily come back if I wasn’t careful.

So what did I do the second I started feeling better?

I cooked a bunch of food, took pictures, took some online real estate webinars, worked out, scrubbed our house, folded and put away all of our laundry (which I never do!) then went out to dinner and had a few beers.

Uuuum…yeah…not smart.

Yesterday I felt like I had been plowed and dragged down the street by an 18 wheeler and then left for dead on the side of the road for the buzzards to eat. Luckily, I got to lay on the couch most of the evening so I feel a little bit better today. The good news is that I haven’t had a fever in about a week so I think as long as I try to take it easy, I should be in the clear!

On Friday morning I woke up to this bundle of precious.
He loves to lay on his back, but will attack you
if you try to touch his belly 🙂

Lily then helped me clean the dishes :/

My husband was out of town at an auctioneer’s convention this weekend,
but that didn’t stop me from having fun visiting with his family!
Including our precious baby nephew 🙂

We went to a local oyster bar and ate until we couldn’t eat anymore!
It was so.flipping.good.

I also shared a half pound of steamed scallops
with my BIL. They were cooked *PERFECTLY*
and were dusted in Old Bay.

On Saturday the whole family came over for dinner.
This is the night I started feeling horribly, so I didn’t get a pic of the food
but I did get a pic of what I was doing before the plague hit.

I also received a package in the mail this weekend
that contained the best hair product I’ve ever used.
Just a light spritz makes my hair silky smooth and light as air.
I’ll never go without it again.

On Sunday we went and spent a very belated Christmas with
the hubs grandmother, aunts, and cousins. It was so much fun,
and I got to snuggle with this guy on the way home.

I then spent the rest of the evening medicated with Nyquil and watching a bazillion hours of Final Witness on Hulu.

    Is it sad that I looked at that coconut spray bottle and read Dessert Essence? Then thought, why would you want your hair to smell like dessert? 😉

    I’ve been to restaurants that have had oyster bars… and now love them!

    Favorite wine? Toughy for a wineaux like me! But a good spicy (red) zinfandel is always a good bet – like the Opolo Mountain Zin from Paso Robles.

    Favorite hair product right now is Moroccan Oil.

      Nope, not sad at all! I totally did a search for “Dessert Essence” on Swanson Vitamins so I could see all of the other products they had! Clearly, it came up with zero results, and I then realized my mistake *face palm*
