Last weekend, well Thursday-Tuesday Jon went home to Cleveland to visit family and I had a huge list of stuff to get done. Nothing major but just piddle paddly stuff around the house, different crafts, stuff I had been putting off. My husband travels for work during the week but I am never alone on the weekends so I wanted to jam pack the days so I wasn't bored. Luckily I had Friday night and Saturday during the day before the sickness of 2013 hit. I had a hot date with my favorite munchkin and we took advantage of free movie channels for the time being.
Oh and this post will be the Ernie show since Jon has been gone, I just take pics of Ernie all day haha
Ever since we took Christmas down on New Years, the house has seemed naked to me. I have been dying to get some Valentine's Day decor up and was excited to get my craft on. I really love February because we got married in February (5th), got Ernie in February, Valentine's Day... and to add some cheese, our last name is Hart so there are hearts everywhere. I don't go overboard with decor but I want to feel the love. A girlfriend came over for craft day and we made these adorable wreaths. I saw them while searching on Pinterest (duh) and when I clicked on the site, it was in a language I couldn't decipher, so sorry for the lack of credit. My door is naked without a themed holiday wreath and I am trying to think of what I could do after Valentine's Day? Is it too soon for Easter?
I barely moved a muscle after the sickness hit, except to get snacks, take baths, and let Ernie out. I tweeted about it earlier this week but seriously I don't know what I would do without my little man. It's like he knew I was sick and never begged to play ball (which if you know him is HUGE) and stayed cuddled by my side for days. I cried many tears this weekend both of pure sickness frustration and realizing how much I love Mr. Ernie. Hey if Jon couldn't be there to take care of me, Ernie was my next best thing. I assumed I was nearing my death so I slept at my parents house one night so I didn't have to die alone...luckily the good Lord had different plans for me. I took 2 days off of work and slept, ate more snacks, used another box of tissues, and ate Mucinex like it was Reeses Pieces. And on Tuesday morning, I was so wrecked that I sobbed when I woke up knowing Jon was coming home. Why am I so lame?! Luckily it rained all day so when he got home, we ate Chick Fila, showered and went back to bed. I know I am not helpless without Jonny but I missed him so stinkin' much.
Oh and the rain... Ernie was such a weenie and didn't want to go out there to pee. I had to shove his cute little tail-less booty and he was so sad coming in soaking wet.
My dear dear husband chose to leave at 5am on Thursday morning for a business trip to spend time with his desperate wife instead of going the night before. So unfortunately last night I was hubby-less but kind of fortunate because I got to catch up on Pretty Little Liars (because it would be wrong to make Jon watch it, right?). And on that note, I am SO confused by last night's episode. I can't keep track of everything that has happened! Cliff notes anyone? But here I am, on the road to recovery... feels weird to be wearing makeup.
Can you tell this is my, I can finally breathe and am pissed off I already had this funk 8 weeks ago face? With awesome rain soaked hair!
We are dog sitting Miss Daisy (white Scottie) for the weekend... I was having fun making them turn their heads from side to side, "do you wannaaaaaa?"
I told ya, Ernie is a cuddle monster and can't get close enough to me, especially in the cold. I am convinced he is part gorilla in this pic. Those little lips kill me!
In other Hart family randoms...
- I am having the hardest time coming up with a 2 year wedding anniversary gift for Jon. The traditional theme is cotton and I don't want to do something big, just cute. I did buy him some Nike workout shorts but I doubt there is 1% of cotton in those shiny things. Last year for paper, I had boudoir pictures taken and made into a gorgeous leather bound book for him... never will I be able to top that!
- Jon and a buddy are doing a healthy weight loss competition and I am nervous that I have to start cooking super healthy. I don't cook like Paula Deen but if something calls for cream cheese, I will use it (I am just smart about it). Jon requires meat at every meal (protein king)... so do y'all have any good healthy recipes to share?
