My week.  Let's back up all the way to last saturday.  I went out with my bestie for a date night to watch some local music... We had a great time, but little did I know that somewhere in that building was a little bug called influenza waiting to pounce on me.  At least I believe the culprit was residing there according to my timeline. 

Then monday, after yoga, I started to feel a little tickle in my throat that lasted all day.  Just a tiny one.  We went that night out to our friends house and by the time we left, I knew I was sick.  I thought at first it was major allergies from being out in the hills... but oh no!!!  By the time I woke up the next morning, full on flu.  And a high fever for the next few days, and you know you, all that goes along with that.  So.... there was a whole lot of this below for the whole rest of the week.

Then a few days later, James started to get it too... so just as I was coming out of my fever break, he was going into his and I needed to take care of him too.  It's been about 5 years since Ive had the flu, so I had conveniently forgotten how rough it is.  I'm sooooo happy we are both coming out of it.  I still feel exhausted and I'm having a hard time finding my energy, and still have a bit of a soar throat... but this I can handle.  And I'm so happy that we did not have to go to the doctor, and I fought the whole thing naturally. It's kind of weird though to wake up one day and realize youve spent an entire week in bed. 

And FINALLY!!!  I have the winners for the past two giveaways...  Thanks for your patience!
