It's Friday! Whoop Whoop!!!

Linking up for Five on Friday.

My sweet boy had the flu this week. He did have the flu shot this year {and every year before}, but still got the bug somehow. Breaks my heart! I think the fever was the worst part of it, though. Fever just makes you feel crummy. He did have some congestion and a sporadic cough, but that was it. His fever started Sunday morning and they count that as the first day of the flu. By Tuesday at lunchtime his fever went way and hasn't came back. Thank you Jesus!

I haven't left the house since Monday {to take Mason to the Dr}. We've lived in pajamas this week. We shower and then put on a fresh set of pajamas. I've been too mentally exhausted to even care! I just hate when my baby is sick. I feel so helpless and it stresses me out.

I've made mostly crock-pot meals this week. I wasn't sure how this week was going to go with a sick baby, so I planned easy. All of the recipes we tried were from the Crockin Girls website. Monday I made the Apple Pork Loin. YUM! We will definitely be making this again. Tuesday I made the Orange Chicken. It was okay. Not a favorite. Wednesday was the only day we didn't make a crockpot meal. Thursday we made Creamy Chicken and Rice.

My birthday is tomorrow and we don't have a single thing planned. I wasn't sure how Mason would be feeling by then, so we haven't made plans. Also, seems like everyone else we know is sick. My inlaws, my nephews, etc.  That's okay by me though. I'm fine with not making a fuss about it! :)) Although, feeling quite blessed to be sharing my 18th birthday with Nate and my 4th to have my sweet Mason to celebrate with me. God surely did bless me with those two!

My inlaws are having a new/extended driveway put in this week....which means tractors and cement trucks....and a certain little boys dream come true!! I took him over Thursday afternoon to see the guys at work. And he got to put his handprint in Nana and Papa's concrete. He was pretty excited!

Happy Friday friends! Any plays for the weekend?

    Gah, you are so right, it stresses me out too. We live in PJs all the time. HA! That's probably why Dav has 2 drawers full of them. It is so wonderful.

  5. Poor Mason and the flu is supposed to be horrible this year glad he is on the upside.
    Happy Birthday pretty lady
    I love crockpot meals so easy
    I know Mason was in boy heaven with all the equipment
    Hope you have a wonderful birthday

  6. I hope you have a fantastic birthday!! I love quiet relaxing birthday celebrations!
    I've not found a orange chicken recipe I really like. In fact, I've found some really disgusting ones! But I love Crockin' Girls recipes! Nothing wrong with most of your meals coming from a crock pot, ours gets way more use than our oven! :)


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
