I named this post “showered” for a couple of reasons.  First of all, after a week of using face wipes and washcloths to “bathe” from the comfort of my couch, I finally showered.  I was/am sick and generally acting pathetic about it.  It had been so long, friends.  I think I scared my neighbors.  “Who is that hobo with the terriers?” is what I assumed they whispered as I trudged down the street in slippers and a robe and hair that appeared wet.  I actually went about two days without even donning a bra.  When I am sick, I am really gross.  The other reason for this title is I drove my sick self to Dallas for a wedding shower thrown by my Aunt Zita.  It was so lovely, with some really fabulous friends and family.  My aunt made delicious chicken pot pies (with hearts!) and cupcakes.  The day ended with my aunt and my cousin trying on her dress from her 1985 wedding!  Zita was strutting around, we all tried on the veil…it was so much fun. I really don’t have a lot of pictures from the shower yet, but there will be more to come! xo

PS. I just read this post to my mom and she added that when I am sick I am REALLY grumpy.  It’s true.  David, Katrina, and mom- sorry that you received the brunt of that attitude.

    Oh, I wish I could have been at the shower–it sounds like so much fun! Hope you feel better soon (especially in time for this weekend)!

  2. Darling, I’m sorry you’re not feeling well! If it’s any comfort, I’m pretty gross when I feel gross, too. At least I’m not obligated to any little monsters to take them outside!

  3. The food looks amazing! I hope you recovering well from being sick! It’s ok, everyone else is really gross when sick too!
