While Monday usually gives me little satisfaction, this Monday feels incredible.
Let me explain by starting with our Friday. I had a great day and a fun play date with the kids and after nap time whipped up one of my favorite appetizers (shared to me by one talented friend) and posted this picture on my Instagram at 5pm.
Life was grand.
Then the kids would not eat, were whiney, and clearly not themselves. We bathed them and got them ready for bed.
And then it hit.
The stomach flu.
Like a hurricane that rocks your entire house, we had been hit and it was not pretty.
The parents are spared.
and then it was our turn.
The entire weekend was horrible and there was nothing to do but survive.
So while the picture above may look like the perfect weekend image, what happened after was the reality. I considered putting up a picture later, but honestly did not have the strength.
Luckily, we are on the mend and eating solids again.
So just a really nice reminder that things are not always as they appear in cyberspace. Actually pretty much never.
Now back to that dip. I had posted this recipe before if you want to check it out. It is very easy, can be made in advance, and it such a great starter. I highly recommend it.
I hope your weekend was much more fun than mine!
