I started last week feeling really optimistic that the sick was behind us and that we were all on the mend.
Wow, was I wrong.
I ended up going to the doctor on Thursday where they told me I had a severe sinus infection, so I quickly got on some antibiotics to get rid of this thing. Dylan also had surgery last week to put tubes in his ears. He did amazingly well (no crying, no fussing, just perfect laid-back happy Dylan) and we’re hoping this is our answer to resolving his ear infection issues.
Fast forward to this week and I’m feeling so much better and much more clear-headed. So again, we starting this week trying to be optimistic that things are getting back to normal and that we are all very close to feeling better and be back on our routine that we love so much.
I’m happy to be starting a new month and am hoping to see signs of Spring around here soon. And that brings me to today’s outfit, and this month’s Mommy Monday partnership with (Michigan-based!) Duffield Lane.
I chose the Ruby Dress because it’s super easy-to-wear and flattering. The length is perfect for moving around, toddler chasing, baby lifting and wearing with heels or flats. I also loved it because it has a bit of a nautical feel, so I think it’s going to be a great summer dress for weekends up at the lake.
I’ve loved seeing this little scarf trend and thought I would give it a try. It was actually one that I thought my husband would not be a fan of, but when I came downstairs in this outfit he was like “I love what you did with that scarf thing!” Not that I decide what to wear based on what he likes, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like when he’s a fan of my fashion experiments. I also actually really loved how this looked too, so I plan on picking up a couple more scarves and trying this again.
