Our weekend.. real life

Happy Monday friends!  We’ve had a weekend of pj’s and couch time with sick kids.  My kitchen is a mess, my bedroom is a mess and there is laundry piled so high I don’t want to even go there.  El snapped this picture with her phone today.. she’s actually feeling fine.  My two other little sidekicks shown here.. not so much.  Poor things.  Ad is doing much better but Kole will be home with me tomorrow and we are heading to the dr. first thing!  Never fun when kids are sick.  The upside is that we had a major Star Wars marathon (I think it was part of the love story when this picture was taken – those are the parts Ad and I perk up during) and I was able to get a new post ready for you.  It will be coming sometime on Monday so pop back in if you have time!  Tonight I’m off to bed.  I think I slept a total of 4 hours this weekend and this mom needs some rest!  Along with a fairy to help my sick kids sleep through the night and then magically whip my house back into shape.

On a quick side note:  I can’t thank you all enough for your sweet words on the blog, Instagram and Facebook about my office decor post!  It was so fun hearing from so many of you!  Makes me want to do a room reveal every day!  But then I wouldn’t just be sleep deprived.. I’d be dead. :)  Seriously though.  Thank you.  You are all so supportive and kind and I’ve always known I have the best blog readers in all of blog land.

Back soon to talk about garage organization!  Oh yes.. it’s time. :)

xoxo, Erin

  1. Hi Erin,
    I am praying that your children are back to their happy ,healthy and normal self soon ,and you take care of yourself too.

  2. Awwww, I’m so sorry to hear about your kiddos getting sick. I hope they are right as rain very, very soon. The house can wait, that is for sure. Helping them feel better is the priority. Then Mom getting her rest. HUGS!!

  3. I’m so sorry your kiddos are sick! Be sure to take care of you, too, momma, so you don’t catch what they have! My Marley girl had bronchitis that turned into pneumonia and ended up missing TWO WEEKS of school! (And she’s an 8th grader in all 9th grade classes, so HOLY HOMEWORK!)

    Now I’ve got her sickness – I was laid up all weekend myself. Doc doubled me up on meds, though to try to knock it out quicker, since Marley’s was so severe. We’ll see how it goes. Hope your sweeties feel better soon! And fingers & toes crossed for that magic house-cleaning fairy. If you find her, send her my way when you get done with her. *wink* XOXO

    1. Oh no Kirsten! So sorry to hear you are sick now too! That’s the worst. I just keep praying “don’t let me get it or this ship is sinking fast!” Ha! I’ll say a quick prayer for you too! And for our cleaning fairy. ;) Hang in there sweet friend! xo

  4. Erin – I’m so sorry to hear that your family has been sick. Bless all of your hearts!! I hope you all start feeling much better soon. I am looking forward to your garage organization post, as I adore all of your posts! Love & hugs to you all!!

    1. Thank you so much Jane! We are doing better today. Kole has Strep but at least I can treat it! Hopefully the antibiotic kicks in soon. You are such a sweetheart to send love and hugs. We feel them! :) Enjoy your day! xo

    1. Oh no Emily! That’s the worst! We managed to avoid the car and couch, but I’ve cleaned up the floor more times than I want to remember. Good times for sure. ;) Thanks so much cutie! Glad your crew is over it! xo

  5. As soon as I saw the picture, I knew your little buddy was under the weather. Hope they are on the mend. I am desperately trying to avoid germs here as it seems everyone we hang out witb ia dropping like flies.

    I look forward to your organization post. It will be a bright spot as I’m trying to dig out from Mt. Laundry. I figure the buzzer on my last load should go off about 10 seconds after I die. Ha ha. Seriously though, it is insane how quickly it multiplies. Stay well! I love the picture your daughter took. :)

    1. Ha ha! I am laughing! That’s how I’m feeling about laundry today too! You have to stay right on top of it or watch out. Thanks cutie! Fingers are crossed the both of us stay well and recover from our mounds of dirty clothes. ;) xo

  6. Sorry for sick kiddos…same here. :( I love this picture for so many reasons, but my favorite part of this picture is your Ad’s mismatched PJs! I think SO many of us do this–our kids are all running around in mismatched PJs and we might all think we are the only ones doing that! My 4yr old LIKES his PJs not to match! I just love seeing the most organized person I “know” with a kid in mismatched PJs doing a normal mom thing, with laundry taunting, Dr. visit looming, and still taking in the moment.

    1. Thank you so much Casie! What a sweet comment. Yes.. my kids run around in mismatched pj’s ALL the time. So funny that they all do that! We definitely do “normal” around here. Really well. :) Thanks again cutie! xo

  7. Hi Erin! I am so sorry to hear that you guys are sick!! It’s NEVER fun when your kids are sick. I hope all goes well at the doctor today. You are all in my prayers!! BTW – I just saw your office post – it is absolutely gorgeous!! I LOVE every little detail!! You have an amazing eye for organization and decorating!!!

    Hope everyone is on the mend real soon!!! xo

    1. Oh you are the sweetest Susan! Thank you so much! We had a much better day today and I think we are out of the worst of it! So happy you like my office! You made my day. :) xo

  8. Just catching up around your blog today and have to say…you look so pretty in this picture! My hair doesn’t even look that good when I actually try to do it nice for going out and yours is just casually perfect as you hang out with sick kiddos. Hot mama! ;)
