How was your week? Tuesday afternoon, Coco came down with a fever and I spent Wednesday and Thursday at home with a very sick little bunny. She had a headache. "Mama, my forehead hurts!" And a sore throat. "If I do this (swallows several times, with visible effort) it really hurts." And maybe some sinus pressure. On the way to the bathroom: "When I step too hard, it really hurts in my head." But she was a total trooper and it was nice to spend a day on the couch with her. Such a sweetie.
Today was the Mother's Tea at Coco's Montessori school. I made this incredible and oh-so-easy salad and it was a total hit! But, Thursday while I was home with Coco, I somehow managed to burn an entire baking sheet of tomatoes to a veritable crisp while roasting them. That is not an easy feat! So I started over and roasted these mini heirlooms and they were just delicious.
Now, I feel a bit of a sore throat myself. Ugh. But here's a bit of what I've been reading and checking out lately:
Following your dreams is actually about saying no.
What is going on here, exactly?
Make your baby feel loved.
Excellent explanation of what repatriation feels like.
The Swiss National Bank is rolling out a beautiful new banknote series.
This is so true.
The most flattering, comfortable yet still pretty everyday bra.
Made me giggle with glee.
Have you tried the two minute facial? I'm obsessed!
Forget building self-esteem and do this. It works.
Wishing everyone a Happy Mother's Day, especially to those of you who have lost your mom, or can't have a baby, or have lost a child. You are not forgotten. I'm excited for brunch and mimosas on Sunday and I'll see you back here Monday! xo
