I had big plans for Easter. Spring Break started on Good Friday, and Robert and I were going to visit all sorts of relatives in a five-day span. I was really looking forward to it. I love my family. I love Robert's family. (Therefore I suppose I love "our" family. Being married is wacky!) Sadly, I got sick. AGAIN.
I had a nice good chunk of non-sickness after my bout of bronchitis, but it ended with a no-nonsense cold. The majority of the relatives we were going to visit are elderly and ill, and when you're elderly and ill, you really don't want to be around someone with cold. So plans were canceled. I've spent a couple days on the couch. Am I feeling a bit blue? Yes. Did I decide to express this literally through my outfit? Yes. I wanted to see family, and I am so tired of being sick.
Luckily, on this lovely Easter Sunday, I am feeling better. There's an adorable, flowery sundress I've worn the past two Easters (thrifted, clearly), but it was too cold today to wear it so I went with a maxi dress and sweater (both thrifted last fall). I also wore my wedding shoes, which were Isaac Mizrahi for Target shoes I already owned. (I had a low-maintenance wedding. My main budgetary priority was our fabulous honeymoon in Ireland.)
This is really the comfiest of comfy outfits, which is a must when you're under the weather. I've been in the house the past two days being sick, and Robert and I have watched all of season one of "The Walking Dead." Eep! So good and so gross! Today, we're going to venture out to do exciting things like drink coffee and go grocery shopping. It's much more low-key than the big Easter dinner we were originally planning to attend. SIGH.
If you're going to feel blue, you might as well do it in something cozy and beautiful. I really dig the colors of this outfit and the pattern of the dress. Maxi dresses are pretty much the most comfortable things ever. Wearing one is like wearing a nightgown in public.
Sunshine has been by my side the whole weekend. She seemed to get pretty stressed out by "The Walking Dead." Seriously. That show is not playing around! I should really switch on something like "Easter Parade" next. Much lighter. Fewer dead things. I should also note that my cranky mood is dissipating with my cold. If you're working with kids for the first time in a long time, you're going to get sick! That's biology. And all this recent sickness has really made me start to value my general health, but that's a post for another time. A post that might have something to do with kicking the sugar habit. Or not. Robert made cream puffs yesterday. They're kind of a-mah-zing.
Seriously delicious. You do not kick the sugar habit with cream puffs around. These were eaten when we were not watching "The Walking Dead." It is impossible to eat anything when watching that show. Even delectable puffs of cream.
