Savoring Saturday

Winter has wintered again.. I am not bitter.

Harper got sicker and was up most of Friday night with the worst croup she has ever had. I was actually terrified this time. Saturday morning, after sleeping until 11 (!!!!) Scott told me to go somewhere and have a quiet day.

Guess where I went?

If you guessed Target, you’d be right. Their new Opal House line is amazing. I want it all. It reminds me of the cool vibe that Anthropologie has, but at a price point within my frame of affordability. I bought a towel and napkin basket. I’ve been wanting a basket for my napkins because we use cloth 95% of the time, and it’s hard to fit them into a standard napkin holder. They are harder to find than I expected. I really want this mug also.

I went to Panera for lunch. It was my last day before starting to eat AIP. So, I made sure I’d feel really miserable to start off. I did get a superfruit smoothie, so that counts for something, right? Probably not. I am obsessed with their broccoli cheddar soup and bread bowls. I got the baguette to take home for Scott.

I also found this gem at a garage sale. I love these vintage dishes. I am always on the hunt for pyrex bowls. This is Coringware, but I still really love it.

Harper ended up getting worse, so I took her to urgent care. She has an ear infection and strep throat on top of her croup. This poor girl. She fell asleep on the couch with her shoes on when we got home. We could barely wake her up enough to take her antibiotic.

We all stayed home on Sunday to prevent spreading the illness any more. We took it slow. I got my seeds started inside and prepped some meals for myself for the week. I laid on the couch with Scott while we binge watched a show we like. The girls had their Kindles (on sale!) for longer than our usual time limit. No regrets. Sometimes it’s good to slow down, especially after a busy week that kept us running.

The next couple of weeks are going to be physically rough as my body detoxes from all of the garbage. I’m still drinking coffee right now. Honestly, there is no way that I’d give that up with sick kids in the house. I’m using a paleo creamer, so that counts for something.


I hope thatย  wherever you are, it is NOT STINKING SNOWING. Stay warm, friends.
