My St. Patrick's Day Curse...

So last year on St. Patricks Day while it was an amazing 75 degrees out I lay in bed with the flu! Today I woke up feeling just a little "off". I thought after I ate I would feel better. I am not a morning person so it takes me awhile to actually feel alive...ha! I ended up having to leave a little early from work this afternoon because I just needed to lay down!! And lo and behold that fabulous St. Patty Flu Bug is back!!!!

I am currently laying in my adorable new bedroom trying to keep some water and gluten free crackers down. The only thing I ever crave when I am sick is saltines and being allergic to gluten makes that a little difficult! Not to say that my very very small bag of gluten free crackers for $5 is bad...they just aren't the same as the $1 saltines.

Okay..enough about feeling bad. Saturday night we had a little get together for Scott's mom Shelley and we had a blast. We found the felt moustaches we had made for our wedding reception and they made their way around the party.






It really doesn't take much to entertain us!

Here are few more favorites from the evening:




Isn't my mermom cute? She loved her new mermaid tshirt and mermaid seashell!

This weekend I also discovered Lemon Berry Slushies from Sonic and I had THREE!!! Maybe that is why I am not feeling good now? Sugar overload?


Oh and thank you so much Jari for the fingerless gloves and all my other Happy Mail goodies!


Well I hope everyone had a great St. Patty's Day! I am going to go watch Idol and then hit the hay!
XOXO

I don't know WHAT the deal is w this time of year& the flu. I will admit I'm glad mine came two weeks early this year- but I knew THREE other people who were also stuck at home with it yesterday. :(

I hope that you start feeling better SOON!!! We missed you.
