I'm Free

 Oh man, you guys, I started to get some serious cabin fever this week.

As you know, both of my girls had the flu, then I started coming down with something. It was a train wreck in my house; the flu, chills, coughing, sneezing, drenching night sweats and one ginormous zit on my face. Rough days, I tell ya. Rough days.

They only times I made it out was to the doctor (three times), to pick up prescriptions and then a quick run Chick-fil-A. I thought I was going to lose my mind.

My personality can't handle being cooped up in a house when it's been absolutely gorgeous out. I hate to be Brenda the Bragger, but we almost hit 80 degrees yesterday. Sorry for all you snow bunnies up north. I feel for you guys. I feel cold, frigid and frozen when I think about your temps.

Anyway, the girls and I finally started to feel better yesterday afternoon. So, as soon as Ross got home, we were dressed and ready to hit the big city of Round Rock. It's like we had been held captive for months. I was so ready to face the glorious sun and it's warmth. Momma even slipped on the heels and leopard. Were we going anywhere fancy? Nope. Just to the local ice house across town, but I didn't care. I felt the need to get dressed, put on some glossy gloss and twirl my locks with the magic wand. I am telling you people, I needed to join the living again.

I am free! We are free! The flu and whatever other nasty germs that slithered their way into our home have been exorcised away. Good riddance.

Hello world! Have you missed us?

Glad you & the girls are feeling better! Thanks for the posting these shoes on Instagram. I went to Target and picked it up in fushia. I was so tempted to buy them in every color!

Ugh - sorry the plague hit your house. I had a relapse of whatever I got right after New Year's. No fun. But what IS fun is that outfit! I'm a huge fan of leopard print.

Tashia said...

I always love that feeling of getting out of the house after a few days of being cooped up. It's nice to shower and put on makeup again. You really do feel like a whole new woman! So jealous of your 80 degree temps. Could you send like 20 degrees to Boston so we can get above freezing?

Brooke Houston said...

You are seriously the cutest thing. So happy you're feeling better. I hear the flu is really nasty this season... dare I say that I didn't get the flu shot? I hope it doesn't come back to bite me in the butt!
