TFF + The Pick No. 10

Friday, March 11, 2016
It has been a long week in the Hill House. Husband came home sick midway through the day on Wednesday. He wasn't feeling well, and if you know husband you know he must have been feeling pretty badly to leave work for half a day. He's got the aches, chills, coughs, and a fever. Hello, flu. So while I'm trying to keep my distance so that I don't catch it (and keeping Greer away too), I'm trying to take care of my sick guy and go all single-parent for the last day and half. Ya'll I'm tired, and this isn't over yet. So while I would normally be quite happy to see the weekend, I'd rather just have a healthy husband back and a Monday. We're praying neither Greer nor myself end up catching it.

Other than the sickness, this week has been beautiful. Virginia is finally having lovely weather, and I can't get enough of the warmth and sunshine. The windows in our home have been open (hopefully that's helping some of the germiness) and the smell of spring is taking over. 

p.s. Be sure to check out the "thinking" section below!

T H I N K I N G  > It's been forever since I've done a Hour by Hour Weekend. And this weekend just so happens to be the second weekend of the month. So get those phones out and start snapping your weekend! Then link up with me on Monday to share your HBHW!

P O N D E R I N G > A beach vacation. Greer + her rolls in a tiny swimsuit just gives me all the heart eyes! Seriously, a baby in a swimsuit has got to be one of the cutest things ever.

N E E D I N G > A large, iced, Chick-fil-a, vanilla coffee. Please and thank you.

L I S T E N I N G > To the static of the baby monitor. Greer has been sleeping so well at night and I'm so very thankful, especially since I'm currently on solo duty.

D R E A M I N G > Of a shopping spree. Oh, wouldn't that be nice?!

S W O O N I N G > Over lilac candles. What is your favorite candle brand? I'm needing a new lilac one asap!

  1. I am getting iced coffee's decided. Here's to Hour by Hour Weekend with Greer girl in it!! :)

  2. so glad she's sleeping better!! and a swimsuit on a baby :) the best. off to get an iced coffee now! <3

  3. Babies in bathing suits! Aren't they the cutest? I miss mine being chucky roly-polies.

  4. Totally do the beach vacay with Greer! We took our son when he was 3 months old and it was the cutest. Plus he wasn't mobile yet so it was the easiest vacation we've taken since he was gets a bit more challenging as they get older and decide that sand is a delectable delicacy. Hope husband feels better soon and you and Greer avoid the germs!

  5. We had the same flu bug going through our house last week. All 3 kids and my husband. Thankfully, I never got it. Which was good because I needed to be taking care of everyone! I hope you and Greer can avoid it too!
    My Chick fil A drug of choice is the frosted lemonade...but you had me at Chick fil A :)
    HBHW? That sounds fun! Will you have this after every 2nd weekend of the month?
    Have a great weekend! Looking forward to seeing what you did on Monday!
