Turn Around... Life is Good

It's a new day!! Turns out Amelia had Roseola. High fever, then rash. I hate for her to be sick but I'm glad to know she did have a sickness rather than it being me who caused an allergic reaction with bath wash.

She still had the rash yesterday. It was not a pleasant day, but it was definitely not the worst. I would post a picture but she spent the entire afternoon completely naked while I applied hydrocortisone cream and let her air everything out. I don't think she'd appreciate her naked self on the Internet. Her Daddy was not impressed that I was letting her crawl around without a diaper but I figured a little tee-tee wouldn't do much damage to the lovely green carpet.

After VBS last night I met Daddy in the driveway to drop off the little girl and I headed to book club. Fun girls talking about a great book over beer and food makes for a great time. It was just what the doctor ordered for Mommy.

A great nights rest means a great morning. We all woke up in a good mood. Amelia's rash was gone and she was back to her old self. I knew we were headed in the right direction when I woke up to her talking and playing in her crib rather than screaming.

After work we headed to the new Fresh Market. It opened yesterday and today it was PACKED! Did someone say the economy is bad? I don't see it! It is great to see that so many people support local foods. Of course, everything is not local but a lot of it is. I will always be a Publix girl, but I will definitely be frequenting the Fresh Market for things. Their meats and produce looked (and tastes) fantastic. They also have a great selection of cheeses and a whole olive bar. Martini anyone?

Amelia posing with the beautiful sunflowers. Flowers are another great thing they always have. They have a great price on them too!

While we were out and about, we turned Amelia's big girl seat around. She can now see everyone and look out the window. She thinks she is something else. A week from Saturday she will be 1. Am I excited? Not really. It's actually quite devastating. I suppose she has to grow up but I feel like we are living in fast forward.
I am about to pour some milk, get the cookies and watch Project Runway. The Cowboy is at Bible study. Let's see if laying the in bed having milk and cookies with Tim Gunn can beat beer and book club with the girls. Ummm.... this one will be close...

  1. Awwww, I'm glad she's doing better! Now I feel bad for posting naked pictures of my niece on Facebook, but oh well, I think they're cute, and I kept her (mostly) modest. :) I hope you all have a great weekend!
