Pearl necklaces, shopping carts, and the world of a self proclaimed ya ya

This post would be way cooler had I taken pictures. I would be way cooler if I didn't want to barf all the time. Such is life.

Lila got another cold but handled it much better this weekend than she did last weekend. However, we felt like we still needed to stay around home for the weekend so she could once and for all get better. Thank goodness we have friends that like to invite themselves over to our house or we would have no life a lot of the time. But let's start at the beginning.

Friday was the first day of the second round of snotfest. We tried to go out to dinner, but Lila wasn't so happy about that. Our fridge is kind of bare due to my serious lack of interest in food. We made it through dinner, came home, and went to bed. Are you trying to live vicariously through us yet?

Saturday mornings for a long time have involved a family trip to Chick-Fil-A. I have made a massive effort to go organic and really be conscious of what I am putting in my body. But, Chick-Fil-A is one of those things I haven't been able to give up...that is until my recent, turbulent relationship with food. We still went, but I think I am going to have to just pass from now on. For the past couple of weeks I have been a yard sale maniac after Chick-Fil-A. This weekend I made some good finds. Lila has taken a major interest in play jewelry and you can almost always find that at yard sales. I also purchased a mini grocery shopping cart and a fantastic rug for $2! Needless to say, Lila spent most of the day on Saturday ramming the shopping cart into walls and furniture while sporting a "pearl" necklace and lots of snot.

Saturday night we had a cookout with said friends that like to invite themselves over. It was FANTASTIC. Seriously, there is nothing better than being able to stay at your own house and put your child to bed and hang out with your friends. We are so lucky to have the kind of close friends that will invite themselves over because they know it's helpful for us! We grilled, we talked, and we made smores over a fire pit. It was a perfect fall night.

At some point over the weekend (can't remember when) Lila saw a big picture of herself on Seth's laptop and she started pointing and say "ya ya, ya ya, ya ya". It was the cutest thing EVER. It has happened a few more times over the weekend and I just love to watch her morph into a kid...I'm trying not to get upset that she is slowly becoming less and less of a baby.

So that was our weekend. In case you didn't pick up on it, I am not feeling so hot. If I am being honest, I wrote an entire post about it and then deleted it. I am trying SO hard not to whine and whine and whine about this even though I have felt this way for three months straight. I can't promise you won't hear about it again, but I am making an effort to keep it to a minimum.

Happy Monday ya'll!


  1. Glad you guys had fun! I hope you start feeling better soon! :)

  2. Feel free to whine all you want about morning is absolutely no fun :(. Plus - it's a total game-changer having a toddler around while dealing with feeling crummy. Hope you feel better soon!!!
