Weekend Roundup: No. 215


I’m keeping it short and sweet this week because I haven’t done anything since last Friday. Literally, I’ve been out of the house four times in over a week. We’ve been hit hard with a nasty cold (maybe influenza).

Last Friday afternoon Sybil spiked a high fever. We spent the next few hours at urgent care having a Friday family movie night while Sybil was tested for a UTI and other bacterial infections were ruled out.

We had planned to fly to Arizona the following morning, but Sybil and I were too sick to go. So we dropped Lawson and Jim off at the airport for a boys weekend. It was my first time away from Lawson for 3 nights. I cried off an on all morning. You can bet I sent a special note with him in his backpack.

Sybil and I spent the next 4 days at home on the couch. We cuddled and napped. I did get more sleep in those 3 nights than I have in the past 4 years.

They returned home on Tuesday in time for a snowstorm on Wednesday. Lawson is now sick and we still haven’t left the house.

I did score the lucky day copy of Michelle Obama’s Becoming at the library. I haven’t started it yet, but plan to make it a priority this weekend. Everyone has been raving about it!

My first post for Momma Society went live earlier this week. I shared my tips on defining your style and cleaning out your closet. I’d love for you to check it out and let me know what you think!


On our way to the airport on Tuesday, I made a detour to pick up Thai food for our dinner. We’ve had enough for several meals, which is perfect when the last thing I feel like doing is cooking.


This nasty cold. Enough said.


This blue and white striped vase from Target is on my shopping list. My favorite peonies would look beautiful in it come early summer.
