Weekending | The One Where I Was Sick As A Dog

Hey hey hey party people, I'm coming at you live from my bed...surrounded by water, cough drops, used and some un-used Kleenex and my good ole' friend NyQuil. I've basically been in this same position in my bed, surrounded by mostly the same things for the past 3 1/2 days. I started feeling the sickness coming over me late last week and by Friday I was in the thick of it and miserable. After I finished clinic, they sent me home on my merry little way.

After coming home and taking a little cold remedy cocktail I basically fell asleep for the next 7 hours. I woke up when hubby came home from work and can I just sing his praises for a second, he has been the absolute best nurse this past weekend. He gave up his plans of watching the Texans playoff game with a bunch of friends to tend to me at home. By Saturday morning the nausea and fever spikes had set in so I took more NyQuil, Tylenol and started my z-pack. By the afternoon I was well enough to shower (that should have been considered an Olympic sport), that shower though helped clear a bit of my sinuses and allowed me to actually be somewhat social the rest of the day. Since I was feeling a bit better, we went to watch the game at A's cousins house. I'm glad we were able to go and get out of the house a bit. 

Sunday I woke up feeling a bit better than Saturday, but still with some fever spikes. Continued on with my normal remedy and by the afternoon, again I was feeling better. I still bummed around (perk of being sick) and watched a ton of cheesy Hallmark movies (yes please!) and then caught the red carpet for the Golden Globes and managed to watch the entire award show. With Jimmy Fallon hosting, I knew it was going to be hilarious and I couldn't miss it. A was actually watching (he never usually does), but he loves Fallon as much as me so we enjoyed that. I of course had my picks for best and worst dressed on the red carpet (I was overall not that impressed with the selections this year). The intro was hilarious, the tribute to Debbie Reynolds & Carrie Fisher was touching and made me tear up, Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig were hilariously emotional. Meryl Streep slayed & La La Land basically took home all the awards of the night.

The only other excitement this weekend was that early this morning the lineup was announced for the 2017 Livestock and Rodeo show in Houston. This is a HUGE deal in Houston people, apparently it's the biggest rodeo ever, but I have wanted to go since hearing about it a few years back. They definitely filled my country loving heart with performers and hubby said we can pick a top 4 and narrow down the concerts we really want to go to. Unfortunately we can't go to the last 4 days of the rodeo because we'll be in Vegas (so is it really that unfortunate?!) Which acts would you want to see if you were going to the Rodeo?? Any Houston readers going to the Rodeo??

My top choices right now are Chris Stapleton, Sam Hunt, Luke Bryan & Florida Georgia Line (A and I both really want to see Chris Young, but we leave early the next day for Vegas so we may have to skip out on that one.)


Anywho, if you made it past this post without catching whatever I have, God bless you! Hubby and I have a very busy week ahead of us so I need to kick this cold and fast! Tomorrow is his work dinner at a Mexican restaurant (yum), Thursday we are going to see Book of Mormon!!!!!, Friday we have his best friend's rehearsal dinner and then Saturday the wedding! 

Linking up with Biana!


  1. Oh no! Being sick is the worst, but at least A was able to take care of you this weekend! I'm seriously so excited about the Rodeo lineup! It's so incredibly awesome this year! Chris and I want to go to 3 shows: Chris Stapleton, Old Dominion, and Thomas Rhett! And even though you'll be out of town for the last 4 days, the beginning is where you really get to see a lot of Rodeo stuff going on because the last few days are the finals. You've got a busy week ahead, and hopefully you'll feel even better!

  4. I'm sorry to hear you weren't feeling well girl - hopefully you'll be on the mend soon! I'm so with you on the best dressed ladies - I loved all the plunging necklines! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. So sorry you were so sick, when I saw the sprite I was like "uh oh she has one of those horrendous tummy bugs". So thankful it wasn't, but I'm sure it was still miserable. Huge props to A for taking care of you, and so glad you're feeling better *hugs* <3

  6. Oh no, being sick is the worst! I am so glad you were able to get out of the house a little on Saturday. The lineup for the rodeo really looks amazing!

  7. This time of the year is the worst and I swear it goes around everywhere! We have been sick at two different times so far and we all pass it to one another in our house. UGH! Hope you feel better REAL soon. I wasn't feeling so great last night so I missed the show, bummer!

  8. Hoping you're feeling much better by now and so sweet your hubby was a good nurse! I didn't watch the Golden Globes but the worst dressed are making me cringe.
