"i got it from my momma"

yesterday morning i woke up bright and early and was super productive. by the time 1 o'clock rolled around i apparently did a 180. it first started with my stomach feeling like it had a wave pool with little children flapping around on the inside. then it went to my ears where it felt like a burning pressure sensation. then my head, where a bad migraine decided to kick in. i took a REALLY hot shower to subside the head pain and went straight to bed.
this morning i woke up later than usual, still sick,  but my conditions had changed to this: light headed, stuffy nose, soar throat, and no appetite. needless to say my apparent flu has mutated to something else. moral of the story is, nothing makes you more homesick than being sick. my mom is honestly the best curer when it comes to these things. she'll rub your back, bring you heating packs, make you THE best meals, pull out all your favorite movies, and bring you tons of water whenever you want. the hubs did his best last night by trying to feel my temperature the same way she does, bring me food and water, and rubbed my head and back without me even asking. but with him leaving me tonight for new york and my mom 900 miles away, i don't know if i'm prepared to tackle this flu all by myself. so today i am super grateful for my momma.
with that said, i suppose i'll start my to-do list catching up on gossip girl and watching some new movies i have never seen. any suggestions? comedies and chick flicks highly recommended.

p.s. if you haven't had enough of me today, go on over HERE and check out my mini Q&A with the lovely eryka! adoring her blog at the moment!

  2. I wish I looked that good when I was sick!

    Loving your guest post on my blog!! You are so awesome!!

    Get better soon!!!

  3. i'm new around here, found you recently :)
    Hope you get better soon, I know how you feel missing mom when poorly. Get well xx

  4. awww doll i am so sorry to hear
    you are sick..

    i still live at home with my parents
    and i don't know what i would do
    without mom when i get sick.

    what i do to get better i stay in bed
    drink lots and lots of water/tea
    take my medicines on time, take temperature
    regularly , many cold towels on forhead,
    heater on back if my body is sore, and cover
    myself up to my nose.

    i hope you get better love!


  5. I wish I looked as good as you when sick. I hope you feel better =(

  6. Awwww, get better soon, girly!! That stinks so much to be sick when your hubs is out of town! I love Pretty Woman... but you've probably already seen it.

  7. And... you look adorable even when you're sick. Jealous.

  8. being far from home when sick is the worst and not having your mamma there to keep you company is the pits. i feel your pain!

  9. I know what you mean about having a momma around. So important when sick. How about Bridesmaids or anything with Tiny Fey? I have Daily Show, 30 Rock and Modern Family DVRed...before I had a baby I would curl up and watch those with a big ole cup of tea. Now...I get to chase a baby around with a box of Kleenex and a cold cup of tea. Sigh....

  10. Proverbs 17:22 and 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. And the movie Love Actually =) Thanks for the compliment on my footstool!

  11. So So sorry you're feeling sick! Being sick without mom is the worst! And being sick without your hubs makes me even more sad!

    Hope you get lots of rest, lots of hot showers, fluids, vitamins, and movie watching in. I suggest some new shows like once upon a time - so awesome.

    Feel better!


  12. Ok A) Stop looking so beautiful. You're supposed to be sick. Thanks.
    B) If you haven't seen Something Borrowed, go get it from the RedBox right now. In my top 10 chick flicks, do doubt. If you've seen it already, I'm sorry...I'm drawing a blank on new cflicks :)

  13. that is such a lovely picture of you and your mum :) hope you get better soon, I'm just getting over illness and a 2 month chest infection myself so I know how it feels! absolutely loving your blog, i'm very glad you found mine and left a comment! now following, can't wait to read more xx

  14. I hope you feel better! I agree that being sick and away from your mom is the worst. My freshman year in college I got strep throat for the first time in my life and I didn't have anyone to take care of me. It was the worst! Also, I hope you find some fun movies to watch!

  15. dont you love being productive?!!

    AWW hope you feel better!


  16. being sick is no bueno! you're right, moms make everything better! last time i was sick i got addicted to grey's anatomy. i had never watched it before and decided i'd see what all the hype was about. thanks to netflix i was addicted.... feel better soon!

  17. I'm sorry you're not feeling so great. And you said Eric is gone too? :( :( :(

    Have Grandma cook you somethin' good :)

  18. I concur with the general public: you look way too cute.

    Also, I always watch The Princess Bride or Sabrina when I'm sick. Though anything with Audrey Hepburn would probably do the trick too.

  19. You are right, mommas are the best medicine every.
    Feel better soon.

  20. I hope you feel better TJ


  21. Moms have the magic touch like that. And now that I'm a momma I notice my daughter only wants me when she doesn't feel good. So sweet. Hope you feel better soon!

  22. I miss my mom when I'm sick too. Husbands are great, but they aren't normally home when you're sick! I hope you fell better soon!

  23. I know what you mean!!! And I always feel like I need to tell my mom if I don't feel good, even though I'm in Utah and she's in Kansas. Love moms. Your blog is adorable by the way! I just stumbled over it and I'm following NOW!

  24. aww i hope your feeling better soon!! i hate being sick! I watched baby mama the other day and loved it... or theres always house bunny for a good laugh...

    get better xx


  25. i don't think anyone is allowed to look cute while they're sick. you look like you just woke up from the best nap ever. i'm jealous.
    but it's true, nobody can fix a sick kid like a momma can. uugh, now i'm homesick.

  26. Major bummer :( I am sick, too! And I know what you mean about missing your mom :) It's tough when you feel under the weather! Movie wise, I totally recommend The Beginners (Ethan Hawke)...it will make you laugh and cry...one of those perfect movies when you are solo & sick! Feel better!

  27. oh noes! i was sick for the past 2 weeks, and it totally SUCKS! hope you get better soooon!

  28. Feel better dear, I think something is going around!

  29. Awww! Feel better! I just found your blog and I love it. Going deep into the archives.... NOW!

  30. I have to agree with everyone else here, that I am SO jealous that you can look so pretty when you're sick! Not even fair. It's definitely tough when you're sick and mamas are so far away. I called my mom to come get me from my dorm a couple years ago, she lived about 45 minutes away and it was 3am. She showed up, and with all the essentials like Sprite and crackers, too. She's the best. I hope you feel better soon! Tristan & Isolde is a really good love story, although it is several years old. I will warn you though, you have to push yourself through the beginning to get to the love story.

    Feel better!

  31. well at least you still look stinkin' cute while being a sickie poo! sorry your hubs is leaving you!

    oh and p.s. that letter on my blog was just a joke! haha, so many people thought it was real!!!!!

  32. That sucks. I hate being sick. I hope you feel better.


  33. You look great even when you're sick! I hope you feel better! I hate being sick! Get lots of rest! <3

  34. Poor girl! :( I hope you get to feeling better soon. I remember the first time I got sick when I was away from home...adjusting to life without your mom to take care of you can be rough. Praying for you darling!

  35. If you haven't yet become obsessed with Parks and Recreation... I highly recommend it!

  36. So jealous that you still look so gorgeous when sick : ) Hope you feel better soon.

  37. Thank you so much for your lovely comment! I'm always so happy reading a comment from you!!


  38. I hope you feel better. Where do you live right now?

    Ummmmm... movie selections.. hehe :)
    Depends on what you like:
    musical: Hairspray
    comedy: (you have to do the classics) three amigos, or princess bride, or the man who knew too little.
    actually classics: I LOVE bringing up baby.. and White Christmas (thats a musical too though)
    New love comedies... hmmm, I don't know so many... I just saw Letters to Juliet, I liked that... and um... hmm, Women is good but kind of slow.

  47. :) Aww, you two look lovely in the photo there. I'm forever grateful to my Mum too, the most important person in my life.

    Too bad to hear that you're sick, and no one to take care of you now. Hide under huge blanket and watch movies that make you happier. I'm trying to think what movies I have at home.. Amélie is my all time favourite. :)

    Thanks for stopping by + your lovely words. I've gathered so many pictures on my laptop that it's better to have tumblr-blog: that way at least some kind of source may be found :)

    xx indie by heart

  48. + I hope this flu thingy or whatever goes away soon. <3

  49. I've recently been watching Psych and it's hilarious. Also, re-watching seasons 1-3 of the office always makes me feel better :) Get well soon! I know how you feel about your mom because my mom is the same way. They must have gone to awesome mom school together.

  50. thanks for the lovely comment ;] You look beautiful and so does your mama ;]
