Scenes from the Weekend

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had a lovely weekend! Mine was excellent and was busy but in the best of ways. Friday was drinks with a good friend and coworker, Saturday a private wine tasting with DG, a dinner party and bars with the girls, and Sunday a delicious breakfast, movie date with my parents and then a Downton Abbey party with my mom to end the night! I think 2013 is off to a pretty amazing start so far!

Guess Who’s Back?

Hi lovelies! My goodness it feels like it has been quite a while since I’ve been here. I feel like I’m back from the dead so of course I wanted to check in with you all! I’ve missed the blog world (and the real world for that matter) over the past week and am very happy to be back!

So where have I been? Sick with quite possibly, the worst flu of my life. This is my third bad infection this year, but this one far surpassed the rest. With a temperature of 103 around the clock, the worst cough and constant nausea, my parents had to drop everything and completely take care of me… which unfortunately resulted in them ultimately catching this horrible flu as well. In the midst of it all, I was unable to keep down any fluids and landed myself in the hospital with infection, flu and severe dehydration. After IV fluids and medicines, I was released but ordered complete rest while I recovered.

Finally this weekend I turned the corner and began to feel better. As I stayed home and recovered further, I became obsessed with Downton Abbey:

Have any of you gotten hooked on this PBS show too? The drama, intrigue, British accents and Grandmother with the best one-liners have made me a convert. I’m slightly embarrassed to say how many episodes of the series that I’ve watched this weekend but hopefully there are some fellow fans out there to discuss it with!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday and I’ll announce the LUNA bar giveaway in my next post!
