The Easter Bunny

Last Wednesday I thought a cruel April Fools joke was being pulled on me when the left side of my face swelled up. It even made me feel numb, dizzy, forgetful and incoherent. Maybe it was punishment for drinking a beer at work (which is totally okay by the way!), or maybe it was because I made you all think I was getting a brand new puppy

Either way, life and career knocked me out last week. So badly that I haven't sweat since last Monday and I'm on antibiotics (and eating a ton of yogurt #notpaleo). 

I was supposed to spend the weekend in Seattle with the family, but instead I laid in bed all day Saturday with heat packs on my even more swollen face. Then Sunday I headed home to hang out with mom and the sisters who also decided to stay back home from Seattle.

It feels like we all made the right decision because it was great to have a girl-Easter and a boy-Easter even if the family wasn't all together! 

20 treats is what it took to get Bailey to settle down for this photo, but some of the outtakes of her running away with the ears in her mouth are even better. She has a bizarre obsession with stealing anything that's wearable on the head and/or feet (hats, ears, glasses, shoes). That's just the kind of sister she is, but it made for a great Easter photo for the Instagram feed. 


This week already looks good with the long-awaited weekend trip to see my friend get married in Rhode Island. The wedding, getting back to sweating this week, days off of work and some Boston exploring have me off on the right foot! 

What did you guys do this weekend?

I'm so glad it's getting better. Bailey was too funny grabbing and running off with the "ears" ...

I bought Brady some bunny ears but I couldn't even get them near him without him freaking out! I think he's still traumatized from his Christmas ones ;)

Sorry to hear about your face swelling -- did you find out what caused it? Love the bunny ears on the pup :D

I feel like an idiot. So my first thought was, "what's she gonna do with the pup when she comes to visit me?" and then I decided my excitement for puppies was too strong to care about such a trivial detail. I told the boy you were getting a dog and when we watched your bunny ear snaps he was like "Oh! Where's her new puppy?' We were ALL INVESTED.
