MIMM #90 with a Happy Birthday + More!

Happy MIMM!

I am running on NO sleep  icon eek MIMM #90 with a Happy Birthday + More!  poor Rocco had a rough night, and bad congestion means no sleep/ I feel dead, and I feel so bad for him.

Even though my little man is sick, I am kicking this week off being grateful for his health, and being grateful for life each day! We are off to the doctor today to see if he just has a little cold or something worse. Praying just a cold. The draining nose and congestion hopefully will get better.

Time for some marvelous….

I love seeing your marvelous highlights from the weekend, and love sharing mine with all of YOU!

Ready, set, MIMM!

We had birthday dinner plans for the night, and I had a little helper sitting next to me while getting ready. Easiest way to get ready, plop him right next to me  icon wink MIMM #90 with a Happy Birthday + More!

We were planning on going to Texas Roadhouse for dinner, but the wait was way too long. Anthony picked Friday’s instead, and we got in right away there!

Food came fast, and it was yummy too!

We had really nice dinner, and it has been a while since we all got out for dinner. Anthony is gone lots of weekends at his dad’s side of the family or my parents house. Was nice to all do a dinner together, and it is a little easier now that Rocco is older.

Love these boys!

( oh teens and being too cool for pics  icon mrgreen MIMM #90 with a Happy Birthday + More! I miss the days when he was little and would ham it up for the camera all the time! )

And the night ended with some birthday dessert of choice for Anthony, he picked froyo! I knew he was my child  icon wink MIMM #90 with a Happy Birthday + More!

We went to Menchie’s, while Rocco and daddy stayed behind at home. Little mans bedtime had him cranky, and it was nice for Anthony and I to just get out together to enjoy some froyo heaven!

Anthony got cookie dough monster froyo with toppings, and I got irish mint and chocolate bar with yummy toppings!

SO GOOD!

So glad he had a wonderful birthday weekend, and so grateful for him <3 #kidsareeverything

No birthday is complete without a cake, a dairy queen ice cream cake to be exact!

Hope you get all you wished for  icon mrgreen MIMM #90 with a Happy Birthday + More!

Happy Birthday it was for him, and I hope he just stops growing. Why can’t kids stay little forever?! #momsadness

Hope everyone has a fab start to the week!

REMEMBER this…..

Not all days are going to be awesome, BUT put things in perspective and realize what is really important to you, and think of your blessings. Life can be gone in a second, be grateful for your life, your loved ones, and your health.  Life is precious, no time to waste it being hateful, unhappy, or trying to control things you can’t control.

And that’s my inspiration for the day  icon wink MIMM #90 with a Happy Birthday + More!

Happy Monday!

Katie xo

I love your perspective friend. I’m so glad you all were able to celebrate Anthony’s special day. Sounds like an amazing weekend. It’s weird when they get taller than you. My youngest is exactly my height right now and that won’t last much longer. I cherish every day I get with them knowing that sooner than I would like to thing, they will be gone from my home. I hope Rocco feels better today and that you both get some rest. Love you friend. xoxo

I love those sentences at the end there. So important to keep things in perspective, and you are so good at it! Looks like you did have a marvelous weekend, but sometimes it is good to have those down moments to make you realize how special the good parts are. Hope you get a little nap today! All that ice cream and froyo makes me want some…even before 7am :P

Also I LOOVVVEE anything with mint in it! I just had a guest post do a thin mint cookie bar recipe on the blog last week and I tested it out over the weekend… #idie.

i’m so sorry to hear rocco is sick! my little girl (who is a week or two older than rocco i think) was sick a lot this winter — flu, rsv, etc.
it made for a LOT of sleepless nights, but (like you said) also reminded me of how thankful i am that she is healthy overall.
i can handle a night of no sleep to care for my little one!

Reply

32 Healthy Diva March 24, 2014 at 2:56 pm

Glad you have the same outlook as me! I am sorry to hear she was sick so much! We got lucky, this is the first time he has been sick yet, which is why I am probably a little over stressed :p I know he will get sick lots in life, but first time maybe toughest!
