hello monday

hi friends! friday david’s cold seemed to be improved, but our weekend went awry when late saturday evening it was clear david was worse, not better. so i took him to the emergency room and he was admitted to the hospital with double pneumonia! it’s amazing what a round of strong antibotics and IV fluids can do–the next day he was so improved, they let us go home. {yay!}

hello home!  goodbye hospital.

hello our own beds and a good night’s sleep.

hello wellness. we’re so OVER this cold.

hello gorgeous sunset in morro bay

hello taco temple {one of my fave restaurants}

hello taquitos and dulce de leche

hello mound of laundry i didn’t tackle this weekend

hello pink blooms and sunshine

hello shiny, new week, we’re ready for you!

what are you saying hello to today?

    Take care and best wishes to your wonderful boy!

  2. aww, its no fun having sick kids. So glad he is feeling better!
    I’ve been following your blog for a few weeks now – its definitely become one of my favorites.
    It wasn’t until this post that I realized you live in Moro bay! My brother lives in Morro bay also (Gardens by Gabriel – if you ever need awesome landscaping design) 🙂
    Anyway, I’m in Alabama, but we ALWAYS eat at Taco Temple when we’re out visiting my brother! Yum!
    This blog world is so big and yet sometimes so small 🙂
