Pizza and Pink Eye

My nephew, Ryan, turned 12 on Friday.
There was a family party and I missed it!
I have been sick and can't shake it.

I feel like it might have something to do with not sleeping for 4 months and 3 weeks. (it's not just a coincidence that Jesse was born 4 months and 3 weeks ago.)

Marcus took the kids to the party and was nice enough to take a couple of pictures for me.

Ryan had a pizza party. 
So my niece, Melissa, made him a pizza cake!

She is a 15 year old baking Queen!

The birthday boy with Katie and Jesse. 
They have the best cousins!
I was so sad to miss out, but I didn't want to spread my germs.

That night Marcus slept in Jesse's room to take care of the feedings. 
 Isn't that nice?! This baby is on a newborn schedule again. 
Up every 2 hours!
This was Jesse's first night in his crib! 
He's still in our room. If he starts going long stretches of not waking up, I will move him to his room permanently. For now it's easier to walk a couple of steps. I don't want to haul myself to the other wing of the house in the middle of the night! (J/K I don't have wings! It's just down the hall, but still!)

So I woke up Saturday with my eyes glued shut and still feeling terrible. 
Marcus took me to Care Now. I was THRILLED to see Elf playing in the waiting room. 
That is pretty much the best movie ever made, in my opinion.
 I feel like I was maybe meant to be an elf? I do have a love for Christmas and Christmas decorating that's a little out of control.
And their 4 basic food groups are Candy, Candy Canes, Candy Corn, and Syrup. Hello? That's 90% of my diet. 

Anyway, Marcus and I enjoyed our date at "the movies". I was diagnosed with a sinus infection and a double dose of pink eye. 

I was given prescriptions that are safe while nursing. So I am hoping to be fixed up soon. 

So I have had an opportunity to lay on the couch and watch HGTV. Have you seen Fixer Upper? It's pretty awesome. Check it out. You'll see stuff like this:
It's a husband and wife team and they are actually NICE to each other. You don't see that very often. I love all their stuff. They live in Waco, TX. That's about 2 hours from me. I now want to move there, so they can fix up a house for me.

It would actually be easier to move, than to clean my house at this point!

LOVE THAT SHOW!! Wes says I am getting too many ideas of ways to spend money and things for him to do. Looking for those exact drawer pulls after seeing the show...I had bought others - but those were so much cuter!! Decorating and updating a new house is work but fun....last night I asked Wes if we could pay Chip and Joanna to come up and work on the house...he didn't respond -- I think that that means no.

Hope you feel better soon! Fixer Upper is AMAZING !! Hopefully they will do an appearance where you live! I missed an appearance once of a book signing I wanted to go to last year (a cookbook) but I have made it to some that have been so fun :)
