yucky monday

 Even though Joel and I had a packed weekend, it got cut short by a random cold that decided to invade my body on Saturday morning.

On Friday we went to a wine tasting with my two besties Claire and Jenna and indulged in lots of yummy wines and beyond amazing cheeses. I'm getting so bad at snapping pictures throughout the night so I have nothing good to show you.

Saturday morning I got my nails done and finally was able to pick a fall-y color. I went with OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark.
My mom let me borrow her DY...swoon
The wedding ceremony started at 1pm, so we left the city at 11:30. It was a torrential downpour and people acted like they've never driven in rain....so guess what? We missed the freaking ceremony. I was not a fun passenger in that ride, let me tell you - the road rage comes out, mainly when I'm not the one driving (much to Joel's demise)

I've never done missed a ceremony before, and I felt terrible and rude, but the bride is not a very close friend so I was more peeved than sad. 

We ended up going to my house to hang out with my parents and pup, and that's when I really started to realize I wasn't feeling good. It's something about seeing you mom, you know?
I cozied up in one of her sweaters and took a nap until we left for the reception at 4:30.

The bride was a friend from High School and it was great to run into friends I haven't seen in almost 6 years. I was still feeling really bad, so after dinner, Joel took me home at about 9. He said in the car, "I know you are really sick because you never once got on the dance floor". True words.
Sunday after breakfast with my parents, we went home and I slept all day on the couch. Joel got me some chicken noodle soup, and I tried to sleep through the night.

Unfortunately I'm home, on my couch, writing this...while I should be at work. Even if I was on my death bed I would feel a little guilty about missing work. I normally call my mom the night before and ask her if its okay for me to not go in. Embarrassing, no?

I think I'll be ready to go back tomorrow even if I'm a little slow and foggy, but I'm getting a little cabin crazy sitting in my apartment alone, plus - I'm pretty sure my couch has indentations starting to form.


  1. I know how you feel about feeling guilty, i'm the same way. Definitely take the time though, or you will just get more sick. That's what I always tell myself anyway. Feel better!

  2. Sounds like how I was feeling a couple of weeks ago. Feel better : )

  3. Awww being sick is the worst!! Get lots of rest and I'm sure you'll be feeling like yourself again in no time!

    You look really pretty in the pictures from the wedding :) and I love the nail polish!

  4. You tried your best to make it, definitely wouldn't worry about it! And lovvve that Yurman :) You look great!
