The Bright Side of Being Sick

via my Pinterest

There was just one thing on the agenda this past weekend... recovering from a painful sore throat/flu virus thingy I came down with on Friday. While I felt awful, the weekend was actually pretty fun...

I watched a lot of this (can never get enough Carrie and Big drama):

Read this:

Hilarious. Unsurprisingly, Katie and I finished reading this book on the exact same day, and we didn't even know we were both reading it. We both wished the book had included a few more behind-the-scenes juice from the Office (like what it's like getting to hang out with John Krasinski all the time). Mindy Kaling is such a funny girl, and I believe that if she weren't a famous TV writer/actor, and we lived in the same city, we would be best friends.

Started reading this:

So far I am loving it. It's an amazing true story about a woman from a very unconventional family (and very irresponsible parents) who has great success in life against all odds... and has this unconditional love for the dysfunctional family she came from.

I also watched this:

And this:

Neither of them were fantastic movies, as you would assume, but they played their proper role in taking my mind off of my swollen throat. My SJP kick was definitely the reason for watching #2, even though I was fully aware it wouldn't be award winning. There were some sweet moments. And Bad Teacher was actually really funny. And I love Jason Segel (Marshall to me).

(All books/movie images found on Amazon.)

So as you can see I had a very unproductive, but relaxing (as relaxing as things can be when it feels like you're swallowing knives) weekend. The best part of it all though was my amazing husband, waiting on me hand and foot - pampering is probably a better way to put it - and making me endless hot beverages AND homemade chicken noodle soup. He's the best.

What are your favorite sick day pastimes?

  1. Hope you feel better for this weekend :) So sad to be missing you... My Mom said she will take some pics for me! And apparently she can get LOW on the dance floor too- you saw the proof!
