Weekend Recap - Bugs & Birthday Parties

So as I mentioned on Thursday's post, both of the girls were hit with a stomach bug last week. I thought it was over & everyone was back to daycare on Thursday, but then I got a text from Miss Jennie letting me know that Livy had just thrown up all over her. She was basically banned from daycare on Friday, so that forced me to take a three day weekend with her. 

The good news is that Livy essentially woke up completely fine on Friday. She never puked again, was eating her bottles & acting like her normal self. She was a little sleepier than normal, but nothing that necessitated non-stop attention. Thus, I took the opportunity to do some serious spring cleaning. I sorted through all of my maternity bins & all of Livy's outgrown clothes, and made a trip to the consignment shop. I came away with a pretty decent profit & everything they didn't take is going to our cheerleading garage sale at the end of this month! 

We came home from that errand, Livy took a nap, then we loaded the car to go pick up Ella. Unfortunately, I locked my car & house keys inside the house at this point in time, which resulted in Livy & I chilling in the car for half an hour while we waited for Eric to come rescue us. #whoops I don't really think he cared though because it gave him an excuse to leave the office early on a Friday afternoon & he had tickets to the hockey game that night. 

Once we finally had Ella, we headed out to meet Aunt Britt for some Mexican! My food was so delicious & I had a great time chatting with my sister. It'd been almost two weeks since I'd seen her & that's just too long! 

Once we got home from dinner, we snuggled up & watched a Tinker Bell movie together. Ella is so obsessed with Tink all of the sudden. I'm kind of confused by the whole fairy thing, but I'm trying to keep up. 

Saturday morning I woke up feeling off. Nothing I couldn't get through, just off. I had plans for a 1:1 day with Ella, so I decided to push through. We headed out to get my oil changed, shop for birthday presents at Five Below, grab lunch, and hit up Target. We had a blast together, but my huge mistake of the day was eating Panera. What was I thinking? Even on a good day, Panera can upset my stomach & by the time we got home, I was on the couch.

We ended up cancelling our plans for dinner with Eric's mom & I literally drank a Sprite as my dinner. Ugh. I hate being sick. Thankfully, I woke up feeling much better Sunday morning! We had a birthday party to attend that I definitely could not miss! 

Ella's boyfriend Keith had a Scooby Doo party & my friend Jackquelyn hit it out of the park with her Pinterest details. Ella had the best time & Livy enjoyed being passed around by all of my work friends.

After the party, we stopped by my sister's house to tell Barkley happy birthday too! Ella was wound up from the party, but Britt managed to settle her down before she destroyed the house. Here they are snuggling together... 

When we got home, the girls went down for a nap & I went out for a run. Evidence of how much better I was feeling. I still didn't have much of an appetite, so I ate a very light dinner and went to bed early. 

Oh, one other little fun bit of our weekend. Our basement drain overflowed! And our basement drain drains EVERYTHING out of our house to the main sewer, which means I had poop on my basement floor. Ugh, it was disgusting. I called a plumber & I'm praying the line just needs to be snaked. Oh the joys of home ownership! 

I'm definitely praying this week goes better than last. I need a reprieve from the unexpected!
