Monday Ramblings

-We had a great weekend despite the fact that everyone in our family has been so sick lately!  I blame it on this crazy and unpredictable Memphis weather.  Brandon and I have both been battling a cough, stuffy nose, and aching body.  We haven't really felt terrible, it's just been slowing us down.

-Brandon had his first trade show this weekend with his new job.  He really likes it and I'm so thankful that it's going well so far.  I'm looking forward to having him home more.  He will have to do some training in Tulsa and will be gone for 2 weeks.  That will most definitely be a very long 2 weeks for us all.

-Anniston has decided that 5:30 am is her new wake up time in the mornings.  I haven't been able to sleep past then in over 2 weeks!  I hope this is a stage she is going through and that it won't last forever.  If I could just sleep past 6 on some mornings that would be great.  But for now we've been going to bed around 9 or 9:30 so we can get enough sleep in, especially since we are a little under the weather.

-I ordered A an Easter basket from Pottery Barn Kids this week and I bought her an Easter dress from a local boutique here in Memphis.  I can't wait for all the cute pictures!

-I did so good on working out this week up until Friday when I started getting sick again.  I ran last Sunday, rode the stationary bike for 30 min on Monday, did a workout from Pinterest on Wednesday, and ran again on Thursday.  I also made my lunch every day this week to take to work and Brandon and I ate off a casserole I made for dinner most nights.

-This week is going to be a long work week.  I only have 1 day off in 7 days because I traded shifts with my partner.  Next week is going to rock though- I only work 3 days out of 7!

And because I feel the need to post a picture with this post, here are some from this weekend:

Happy Monday!


  1. I can't wait to see A in her Easter outfit. I bought Gracie a PB basket last year and I think I'll use the same one again because it was so cute! She also wakes up at 5:30 EVERY.SINGLE.MORNING! So I feel your pain =) Hope everyone is feeling better, have a great day!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that you guys have been sick! Hope you are all well soon! I'm sure Anniston is going to look absolutely adorable in her Easter dress. I can't wait too see pics!
