Oh what a week it’s been! I’ve had the flu all week! {Yuck}.  Let me tell you…It’s NO fun to be that sick and I don’t think I’ll be missing my flu shot next year! While it’s been a pretty sickly week, I certainly have had things to love while I’ve been laying at home on the couch.


  • My dog Belle. This little baby girl has been my side kick all.week.long. Her little body is so warm… she has been right beside me keeping snug as a bug in a rug. There is just something comforting having her by my side. Bellesleeping


  • Gossip Girl. I now feel like I’m besties with Serena and Blair. They were my good friends while I was lying in bed feeling like I was dying. I’m even channeling my inner Blair Waldorf today (I.E.-the hairband .duh.) I love this show. It’s a classic.hairband
  • This guy. My fiancé Brian has been my saving grace this week.  He has calmed me down when I want to cry because I felt so bad, he gave me my meds, brought me OJ, cooked me meals, made me smile and basically just was the best dude ever and I love him.Silly Brian
  • My engagement ring. Sometimes I look down at my hand and think “Dang, is that really mine?” I have to pinch my arm and say to myself, “Yes Lauren, you are engaged.” I am still to this day on cloud nine knowing that I am marrying Brian. I just feel so freaking lucky.Ring
  • Brussel Sprouts. I know I know, a lot of people don’t really love these little cabbages BUT let me tell you something…They are DELISH. I have a wonderful recipe that I am going to share with you next week for honey mustard Brussel Spouts with pecans. Don’t knock it until you try it. Look out for that recipe next week. 😉


XOXO!!!! Happy Weekend!

    So sorry to hear that you have been sick! Made my day though just reading your blog about you and Brian. He’s a lucky man.
