Nov 9, 2012

I knew it was going happen, what with a two year old coughing and sneezing in my face and wiping his runny nose all over me.  Yep, I caught the crunk from my little man.  I’m exhausted and just want to sip hot tea all day and watch trashy TV shows.   Sadly, that is not a reality so I will power on.  I guess after kids you never truly get a sick day!

Thank you for all your suggestions yesterday. I ended up picking up the JCREW Saturday pants and adore them. And best part they were on sale it’s like it was my lucky day and we were meant to be.  I highly recommend these. They are so comfortable.  I put them on yesterday at 5 and rocked them til I went to bed!

In other news, I enjoyed some delish red wine at my parents.  This was such a delicious red wine called Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet.

I am officially obsessed with Nashville.  It is one of my favorite TV shows on right now.  I love the whole cast and I may have downloaded a few of the songs for IPod!

I was however kind of disappointed with the new Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  Everyone just seemed really fake and staged.  Don’t worry of course I am going to keep watching it but so far not as good as the first season.  Can’t decide what I think of David Foster’s wife yet…..

Have a great weekend!  I am off for some retail therapy with my mom and praying I feel better soon!

  1. I hope you feel better! I am sort of obsessed with Yolanda (David Foster's wife). She used to be a famous Dutch model. I love her accent. She seems so normal and classy. Only time will tell!!

    I wish I watched Nashville. It's something I would normally watch and I like some country music.

  2. Nashville is AWESOME! It's the country version of Smash! Hope you feel better soon! I've had a cough for 6 weeks…. There's one nasty bug going around.

    I love Nashville too! The music is so great. My favorite song so far is "Fade Into You" and I am impressed/surprised Hayden P is actually singing.

    The pants look great on you and they sound so comfy! How is the sizing? Do they run true to size or a little big?
