Oh my gosh you guys I am so grateful that I’m finally feeling better! However, sadly poor little Riley caught my bug. While I was sick I did everything I possibly could to keep him from getting sick. I washed my hands probably every 15 minutes, I nursed him as much as possible, and I tried to keep my distance as much as I could. But as much as I tried, the poor little guy caught my cold. But if you guys know Riley then you know that he is all smiles even though his nose is completely stuffed. So even though I’m glad I’m not to be sick anymore I’d much rather be sick then watch my little baby sick. At least I’m not sick while he’s sick because it’s important to me to be able to take care of his every need especially when he is sick. Which means lots of nursing and wake ups throughout the night. But that’s OK. Once he’s well again he’ll be sleeping through the night in no time! And to be honest, this morning (at 4am) when I was rocking him in my arms while he was sleeping I couldn’t help but soak up every single little moment and smile looking at his sweet little face sleeping. I know these days will be over soon and I’m trying to enjoy every moment with my last baby.
Anyway, during his nap I was able to step out to run a few errands. Being cooped up in the house in bed sick for four days straight means I have lots to catch up on! And while I was sick yesterday and found the strength for a few moments to sort through some of my closet and I found this peacoat that I haven’t worn it since last season! I bought it last year when it was on sale for $37 so I went online to see if it was still available and I was so excited to see that it is and it’s still on sale for $37! I kind of wonder if it’s always on sale. Ha! I’m not sure. But either way it’s an insane price for a coat. It’s not super thick so I would definitely call this A transition coat rather than a winter coat. Meaning it will be great for transitioning into the spring. And a $37 you really can’t go wrong. You could always layer sweaters under it for the winter. That is unless you live in the Chicago area where it’s absolutely frigid right now! Speaking of Chicago, the family and I are going next week and I’m really hoping it’s much warmer! I don’t think I could survive with -50° windchill! How are you guys in the Midwest holding up?! We’ve been checking in with Kevin’s family constantly and thinking of all of you in the Midwest!
My jacket comes in 3 other colors. You can get it in black, charcoal, and blush! The rest of my outfit is pretty basic. I’m wearing a pair of $59 high-waisted jeans that I wear all the time. You’ll notice that I wear them in a lot of the outfits I read about on this blog. Check out the reviews of these jeans – I’m not the only one who LOVES them! And then I just have a white t-shirt underneath and a chambray shirt. And yes, I wear this white tee almost every single day. Oh and my purse is 50% OFF! Only $32!
Anyway, just want to give you guys a little update on me now that I’m feeling better! I definitely have been slacking a bit when it comes to my blog since the holidays but I’m feeling really motivated to get back into everything! I’ll be blogging about Valentine’s Day, our upcoming trip to Chicago, surviving the cold (ha!), and more! What would you guys like to see on my blog in February?! Really! Please tell me in the comments below! I wanted this to be a place that you guys enjoy coming to every day to hear my ideas and share your own! Love you guys!
