Trip to the ER

The past 48 hours has been pretty crazy in our house. Monday Kaylee woke up at 3 am with a high fever and a bad cough. We got her some meds and was hoping it would pass.... Well we went to bed that night and poor thing couldn't sleep, fever spiked again and I knew we needed to bring her in. We sat in the Emergency Room for what seems like eternity when in all reality it may have been 2 hours. The doctor came in and said she has pneumonia. I was worried they would admit her but they let us bring all the meds home and take care of her here.

So right now we are submersed in meds, fluids, vicks, cool mist vaporizers, Yo Gabba Gabba and big brown eyes. Her fever is sitting at 102.6 right now.

What could I use?  A healthy Kaylee and maybe an IV pumping Starbucks straight into my veins... K thanks! :)


P.S. I'll post a giveaway tomorrow. Also, I'll be sending off the winners prizes this week!!

I Love you Deerly

Ok so here is my day summed up....

Woke up at 8am, got 6 bags/boxes together for the craft fair tomorrow and the sleepover at Val's (our monthly girls night for doing so great at the gym).

At 9am, Val came over and I convinced her to go to Starbucks with me... on the way to Starbucks we saw a frozen deer on the side of the road and thought it would be a great idea for a photoshoot (we have a distorted sense of humor).

At 9:30am we pull to Starbucks and I order a Venti Java Chip Frap with extra chips (thought my readers should know).

Then we went back to Val's, cleaned and set up our booths, Sandi came over and we all had girl talk. Our tummies started growling so we headed to Taco Bell. We slammed our faces into chalupas and cheesy fiesta potatoes while watching the best Jersey Shore episode I've seen all season!!!

We waited for Joseph to get home and rode out to the frozen Deer Popsicle. Here is what ensued.... yes, we took pics with roadkill...

Cheerfully skipping back to the car, we high fived ourselves on our little adventure. After about .05 seconds we realized, we were in fact... stuck.. in snow... Now we feel like giant A-holes.  Deer Karma anyone?

After about 5 minutes, 2 cars pulled over to rescue the damsels in distress. (keep in mind, 2 cops, 1 firetruck, and 2 ambulances passed us...) After about 25 minutes we finally got rammed in the rear by one of the vehicles and got out... yay..

ok, If you made it all the way through my story, congratulations!!!

OH, HUGE giveaway happening on Monday with 10 winners!!!!!! It's the best one yet!!! Don't forget to check back!!

Food Party!!

Some people watch the Superbowl for the football, while others watch for commercials and then there are a few that just use the Superbowl as an excuse to get their munch on. I happen to be the one who uses it for the food and maybe some commercials. My poor husband ended up having to watch the Superbowl with 3 ladies and I'm sure was less than pleased to hear all our chatter. So for 4 people we went all out with our most favorite foods!!

Chips and salsa from Mi Mexico, guacamole and Spinach dip

The Works and pineapple/pepperoni pizza from Papa Johns, and 72 boneless wings from Buffalo Wild Wings

A TON of ranch, Jarritos (Mexican soda), rice krispie treats and yummy marshmallow/nut brownies

Reason #1 why I woke up extra early to go to the gym today (and maybe something to do with all the Chinese food I ate this weekend too) eeeek!

Do you watch the Superbowl? Or the commercials? or just go for the food? or do you skip it all together?
