That's sick

Friday, November 30, 2012

Yesterday was a pretty yucky day at the Bushman household. M stayed home sick and slept the entire day and B wasn't feeling too hot either (this may explain yesterday's melt down during the Christmas card pictures). I'm not sure what was up with B but she had a clogged nose and a fever :(. Some of my friends thought these symptoms were teething related since she was still eating, sleeping, and playing. Either way I felt bad for my sweet girl. At one point while running errands she said "mmmaaaammmaaa" in her car seat. Oh man, did my heart melt! I parked the car and crawled into the backseat and nuzzled my sweet babe.

Still playin with her toy like a champ
Aside from being sick, M was quite the crafter for me this week. I told him that I wanted two wreaths for our front door but was bummed to find most wreathed are $100 a pop! He took initiative and created two beautiful wreaths for about $15 each! Behold...

First there was nothing
Then pine cones and leaves
Then berries and sticks
M also had the great idea to extend our Christmas card holder since we never have enough room for all our cards. What can I say? We have lots of friends! ;) I wanted to buy a new one (that's my solution to everything) but Matt's burlap ribbon idea was much cheaper.

Lastly, I added a little flair to our dining room.

I'll post on our mantel and trees later (meaning they aren't ready yet). Ahhhh I just love Christmas time!

This weekend we are attending a friends first birthday and Matt's work party. Also I'm hosting a small food party...all the same day! Matt's party is super fancy so I need to bust out some old prom dress. No joke. Can't wait to share it all with you! Have a great weekend.


  1. I can't wait to see the prom dress!

  2. Love the wreaths and the card holder!! We are behind on decorating since we were out of town last weekend! This is the weekend!!

  3. Is there is a balance between the salary and the demanding job.
    Finding the right massage therapist can sometimes be a tough search.
    RTs can also explore the option of branching out into business roles with equipment manufacturers,
    or join the world of research and academics.
