Okay so this weekend has been pretty crappy. . .I have an upper respiratory infection that has left me with a bleeding throat. YES you read that right! A bleeding throat. It began with a sinus infection and then spread to my ears and on Saturday, my throat felt like it was on fire. I haven't been able to eat solids since Saturday. So, I have been sending hubby out for shakes (my faves are Jamocha from Arby's and Steak-n-Shake's thick shakes with whip cream. . .mmmmm!). Tonight we changed it up a little - an m&m McFlurry. Completely UNhealthy, and I am so ready for solids, but my poor throat cannot handle it yet. So my silver lining? My sweet man picked up my antibiotics, he took the girls to school today so I could sleep in, I have a reason to stay in and rest (something I haven't been able to do lately!), and the following things have just made me smile today:
I won my first challenge!!! On The Creative Type blog my entry won and I'm so stoked! =) Of course there were so many fab entries and I felt honored to be among them. Amy Tangerine is one of my scrapbook crushes. I love her detailed stitching on her pages and all her colorful embellies. I won these rad buttons from this etsy site!
These are things in my craft room that cheer me up

I took the pics last spring in my flower bed. The red flower is an unusual flower that I have no idea where it came from, but just showed up in my garden this year! What a lovely surprise. The squirrels in our area are always replanting things and sometimes I'll find a crop of blackeyed susans where I didn't plant them. =)

My fave from today. . .
My mom is affectionately "Nanny" to the wee ones, and she wrote this message on our chalkboard border and Zoe wrote a message back. =)
What is making you smile today? =)
