I used to think that I loved being sick b/c then I'd have an excuse to do nothing but curl up on the couch w/ blankets, a good movie, and Lola. This nasty virus, however, has shown me that being sick kind of sucks, especially when the doctor cannot give you any meds to make you feel better immediately. "Waiting it out" is so not my cup of tea. More than that, I felt incapable of taking care of a lot of To Do's, which I hate the most.
Friday I was able to pull myself together enough to drive to Dallas (mostly for my Mom's tender loving care AND amazing soups, which totally brought me back to life). I spent the weekend being fed the most delicious soups and sifting through boxes and boxes of old jewelry. You see, once upon a time, my family lived in Lafayette, Louisiana, and my mom owned a jewelry store. As trends evolve, and old becomes new again, I knew I'd score some awesome finds. And oh, did I. I think I took about $1000 worth of jewelry (see below)... and there was still SO much I left behind! Sooo fun. Love getting vintage jewelry for nothing. :)
In other fun news, I have a very busy week ahead, including getting ready for dear Jennifer's visit! I'm SO excited and cannot wait to show her my city. Keeping my fingers crossed for good weather! Also coming up later today/tonight: November Goals (cannot believe it's already NOVEMBER!!!) and November Full Moon Dreamboard (check out October's here). Stay tuned, mes amies!!
