Instafriday....or Saturday!

I've decided to jump on the Instafriday bandwagon, but I'm obviously a little late, which I blame on being sick! So here are a few of my Instagram pictures from the week:)

On the way to my parents house, I love curling my hair these days!

I love taking pictures of Ben when he isn't paying attention, usually get a good smile out of him then!

Goofing around with Ben and my sister:)

 My necklace is by Allora Handmade, love it! Want one in so many colours!

So much alike!

We played some Trivial Pursuit, I lost... but it was fun!

Found these beauties at Chapters, they're book ends! They were on sale so they came home with me:)

Picked these up too- vintage magnetic bookmarks, love!

Starbucks is my happy place! I wanted to try a Cinnamon Dolce Latte, but my body doesn't like coffee any more, so my stomach wasn't thanking me 20 mins later. I guess I'll just add cinnamon to my hot chocolate.

Spotted this at Ikea, for a reasonable price, I love it! I'm thinking you could even change out the fabric for something different if you wanted.

Started feeling like "real" food again last night, so I made my favourite, margarita pizza! Mmmmm

I gush about Lisa Leonard's necklaces often, last night I was loving this one!

So there's my week in pictures, mostly from last weekend since I spend most of this week sick in bed- Happy Weekend!

Sick Day

When I was a kid I used to love sick days.

Back then, a sick day meant staying home from school, getting to watch movies in my room, eating chicken noodle soup and ice cream, and having my Mom there to look after me. Now sick days mean missing work (which isn't as fun and I miss the kids), spending the day alone, and the TV in my room is no longer a special treat because its been there for the past several years. Some people might argue that at least I get to stay home and rest, but there a huge difference between having a day off, and being off because you're sick. Frankly all the aches from this fever and the nausea have been keeping me awake so I'm not getting much rest anyway.

OK, time to end I'm sick and feeling sorry for myself rant.

On the plus side, the files on my computer are getting more organized! Sounds completely lame, but it turns out I'm not good at just lying here doing nothing, I have to be checking something off my to-do list, so I've just been taking care of things that require little movement. It's funny how when things get chaotic all I dream about is curling up with a good book and not doing anything else for hours, but when I'm forced to relax I want to be doing seven things at once. I'm a very impatient person, I've come I realize. Once I decide I want something, it takes over my thoughts until I can make it happen, and if I can't make it happen then it drives me crazy! Suddenly my shopping habits make sense ;)

I am hoping to feel my old energy return soon, and to get a decent nights sleep! In the meantime, I'm trying to let the little thing go, like the dishes in my kitchen and the garbage sitting by the front door. They will be taken care of, right now I need sleep!
