Birthday Weekend Ruined, kind of

Want to know one of my all time favorite things?

My birthday.

In fact, I love it so much that in our home we get a whole week dedicated to our birthdays! Pretty great right? Well my birthday is tomorrow (!) so obviously I had a pretty exciting weekend planned.

Yoga on Saturday, then a mani pedi session, then family dinner with some of my favorite foods.

Then celebrating Saturday night with friends and drinks!

Guess what actually happened? I got strep throat.

So much for a fun birthday weekend. Instead I spent the entire weekend in bed under a butt load of blankets and sipping hot tea and praying I would make it out of this alive.

The good news is I lost 5 pounds. Barely eating all weekend will do that for you.

Another good thing... Justin brought me one of my birthday gifts on his lunch break today.

I have to stay home still because I'm contagious, so he thought I could use this:

Thats right! The super sweet new Kindle Paperwhite! And an awesome leather magnetic case too.

If I have to be sick at least I get to do it with a new kindle and tea and naps right?


  1. Oh no! Strep is the worst. I hope you get feeling better soon. The kindle is the BEST GIFT EVER THOUGH! I love mine so very much.

  2. I have a nook - it's your best friend when your sick! And no better time to figure out how to use it!

  3. Strep is so horrible.

    I love my kindle. It goes with me anywhere. At lease you have that to keep you company while you are sick. Feel Better!

  4. Hope you feel better soon! I always seem to get sick at the worst times as well, it really is the worst! And e-readers are the best :)
