Weekend Recap

Hello Monday! Normally I'm not thrilled to see Monday, but today, I'm kinda feeling ready to get back to our normal routine. Last week Mr. Liam had his 4 month wellness checkup, and that same night, I began feeling sick. By Wednesday morning I had a sore throat, some of worst body aches I've ever felt, a fever, and headache. I went to the doctor, and although the flu test came back negative, he diagnosed me with the flu. Apparently that nose swab test is only accurate 50 % - 75% of the time. Given my symptoms, I was treated for the flu. I'm assuming the doctor was correct, because the Tamiflu that I took definitely helped me to feel better.


Since I was down from Tuesday - Friday last week, I didn't get to blog about Liam being 4 months old, but I'm hoping to do that later this week. Friday night I was still feeling a little under the weather, so we didn't do much. Lee grilled us a steak at home, and we played with Liam and watched the opening ceremony for the Olympics.

On Saturday, Lee went skiing for the day for a buddy's 30th birthday, so Liam and I were flying solo. He was pretty sleepy all morning, which I was thankful for, because I enjoyed our lazy snuggle time together. Although we had the whole day to do whatever we wanted, I didn't want to go too many places and spread my germs, so we kept our day low key. We had a Walmart Pickup scheduled for noon, so we did that, ran through the Starbucks drive through, and got some lunch to-go at McAlister's. I tried the Cherry Mocha at Starbucks this weekend, and YUM!! I really enjoyed it. I'm hoping to have another one this week, since I assume they will phase it out after Valentine's Day.

When we got home, Liam napped long enough for me to eat lunch, and we spent the rest of the afternoon playing.

Lee came home that evening for just enough time to shower, eat some pizza with me, and head out with friends to finish the birthday celebration. Liam and I watched Olympics until bedtime.

Liam didn't sleep well Saturday night, so on Sunday, Lee and I were both dragging from our busy Saturdays. We took turns resting and playing with Liam. Sunday evening we threw a frozen lasagna in the oven and got ourselves ready to start a new week.

Although it wasn't super exciting, I had a great weekend resting and spending time with my favorite guys. I especially love when I can get lots of quality time with Liam on the weekends, because I sure do miss him while I'm at work during the week!

This week
This week is going to be a busy one! My Mother-in-law is hosting a Valentine's Day dinner at our house with Lee's family,  and we'll be getting our house prepped for my family to visit this weekend.

Here's what our menu looks like this week:

Lasagna (leftover from Sunday), garlic bread, and salad
Grilled pork chops, baked asparagus and sweet potatoes
Toasted Ravioli, risotto, side salad
Parmesan Chicken, salad, Brussels Sprouts & sweet potatoes (can you tell I have a huge sweet potato that is needing to be cooked up? :) )

*One night we will have our family Valentine's dinner, another night we will eat take out since Lee has a night of traveling this week, and one night this weekend we will eat out before seeing a concert, so that means only 4 nights of cooking for me between now and Sunday!  woo hoo!

Have a great week everyone!
