Happy Valentine’s Day! This post is going to be short and sweet as the Mason household has fallen under the dreaded stomach bug this weekend. That’s right, all three of us. First Sterling got sick Friday, then Matt and I both caught the bug Saturday night. Remember the vows “through sickness and health?” Well, we got a strong dose of that this weekend. We have both never been sick at the same with a baby to tend to, it was BRUTAL. And let’s just say Matt is the worst sick person ever. You would have thought he was on his deathbed the way he moaned. Men are such wussies when they are sick.

On a lighter note, I was excited about the Grammys all day. I loved Juilanne Hough’s Dress. Gorgeous.

Heidi Klum was another of my favorites in her gold sparkly dress. She looks amazing after having 4 kids!

Loved the Cee-Lo Gwyneth duet! Girl can do no wrong. She looked and sounded amazing!

I was also was thrilled that my favorite band Mumford and Son’s preformed!!

Who did ya’ll love?

I will leave you with this picture of me from last Valentine’s Day hours before I went into labor. We’ve come along way this year. I was literally about to pop. I did wear tights with dress when we went to dinner, I realize it looks especially short for a preggo lady to wear!

Here’s to hoping we can keep our meal down tonight! I hope you all get spoiled rotten today and have a fabulous Valentine’s Day! xoxo
