The Calm After the Storm.

They say there's a calm before a storm but if you've ever paid attention there's a calm after the storm too. That's what today is.

The calm after the storm and flurry of a busy weekend followed by me spending a complete day in bed sick with a 103 degree fever and another day trying to get it together, which added up to eleven loads of laundry, a random "what was I thinking" trip to Target and a call to poison control just for good measure.

Since I'd been gone since Friday I had three days of home laundry waiting for me upon my return, along with my clothes from Green Bay. Plus, two sets of bedding. J had quite weekend with the littles that resulted in both H and E's bedding needing to be washed.

Then I thought while I was at it, I might as well strip all the beds and get this house as germ free as I can.

As for poison control, let's just say E got ahold of a certain bigs sample size bottle of  {alcohol free}mouthwash and finished it off like a communion cup of juice. She's fine.

All this to say who knew fevers as an adult kicked your tail like this.Thank God M was home because she was truly my nurse Monday when I did not get out of bed until 6pm. She also, I hear, was quite the helper while I was away, and helped J with the littles and their fevers and sickness.

So, Green Bay.

Five hour drive with my good friend, Stacey and my little sister (who is sleeping in this pic)

So thankful I had Stacey along, she helped a ton with shower prep, day of stuff and is just one of those fun people to hang out with.

So the biggest reason we headed to Green Bay was for my cousins wedding shower which I threw with her other bridesmaids. {pictured above, bride to be is in the center}

Of course we had a few glitches. The cake first read "Jeff" instead of "Josh". No big deal though, right?

The shower was really perfect! Everything from centerpieces to food to games went really well. Which is something considering it was being planned by four girls living in different places with different ideas and thoughts. Let's just say there was a lot of emails back and forth.

{And I was awarded an "I'm in Charge" button at the bachelorette party.}

It was a really, great, fast weekend and so fun. Lots of laughs were had. And now I can't wait for her wedding in October.

The Minnesota Zoo giveaway ends tonight so go enter. I've been awful at promoting it on facebook/twitter mostly because last night was the first time I turned my computer on since last Thursday night so currently chances are in favor.

Happy Wednesday, friends!
