From a Floridian Thanksgiving to a Flu-Ridden Thanksgiving

 Good morning friends and welcome back after the holiday weekend! I hope you all had a lovely time celebrating with your families. Our Thanksgiving plans did not turn out like we had originally planned, but we still had a very nice weekend and have much to be thankful for!

Last Sunday, the 20th, Lily Grace started feeling a little under the weather. Liam had a cold the week before so we didn't think too much of it. Then, Monday morning, I woke up to a text message from one of LG's classmates' moms:

"Good morning everyone. Just a heads up because I'd want to know with the upcoming holiday, but (her son) tested positive for the flu on Sunday afternoon."

Uh oh. 

LG was sleeping in, which should've been clue #1 because she's our early riser... when she finally woke up she had a temperature of 101.5. We called the pediatrician to make an appointment and were told there were no appointments available, and to try Urgent Care. We tried Urgent Care's website, again, no appointments available until Tuesday. (Is this happening in your area too? EVERYONE is sick right now!) We gave her some medicine which brought her fever down a little bit, but she ended up peaking at 103.5. On Tuesday morning, her fever had broken, but when we took her to her Urgent Care appointment she tested positive for the flu. 


We were supposed to be visiting Devin's 94-year-old grandmother for Thanksgiving. We obviously could not take the flu to grandma. She did not currently have a fever, so the doctor told us she was safe to be around people once she was fever free for 24 hours. Since she didn't currently have a fever and we were staying in an AirB&B in Florida anyway, we figured we would drive there and hunker down in the AirB&B until she passed the 24 hour mark. She napped while we packed up the car, and then at the very last second Devin woke her up and put her in the car. I turned around to back out of the driveway and saw our sweet girl was miserable again. I said "Devin look at her, I think her fever is back." Sure enough, she was 101.5. We decided to stick it out at home until we passed the 24 hour fever-free mark. We snapped this pic to send to the family we were supposed to be meeting in Florida:

End of the Year Declutter Challenge-- So Far

 Hello friends and happy Monday before Thanksgiving! Do you have plans for the holiday? We will be driving to Florida tomorrow night to visit Devin's grandmother and some aunts, uncles, and cousins. It should be a lot of fun! Devin's grandma is 94 and still such a firecracker. I am looking forward to spending some good quality time with her.

Today I am sharing a few outfits I've worn lately, including a few that could make for some cute Thanksgiving outfits if you're looking for something to wear next week!
