MIMM #90 with a Happy Birthday + More!

Happy MIMM!

I am running on NO sleep  😯  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!

Friday night….

chipotle and planning something big <3


Roots and decaf americano  😉




A special day for my baby boy! Well, I still call him that, even though he is 14 now!



Birthday breakfast and decorations, tradition we have and love!





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  😉



Curls, buddha, and flats #outfitoftenight

( It always feels good to dress up, since I live in sweats or yoga pants most days! )




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  :mrgreen: 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  😉

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!







A birthday celebration at my parents house for Anthony!

My son is taller than me  😐



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  :mrgreen:

Mint chocolate oreo ice cream cake <3



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  😉

Happy Monday!

Katie xo

    Besides your little guy being under the weather (sending get well wishes & prayers your way), it sounds like y’all had a fantastic weekend. Happy Birthday, Anthony!

  2. says

    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 😛

    Poor Rocco! Hope he feels better soon! Despite your little man feeling sick, it sounds like a wonderful weekend! Happy Birthday to Anthony!

      Thanks girl, not fun at all! We are getting through it though, and hope he gets better fast! <3

      Happy week to you!

  5. says

    Thanks for that last bit! Putting things into perspective really makes me realize how small my problems actually are. More importantly, it makes me able to handle them. Happy belated birthday to Anthony! :)

    Happy birthday Anthony! Looks like he picked the best way to celebrate…good food, family, and froyo 😉 Hope little man gets better! Being sick is no good for a baby :( Have a great Monday love!

    Hope Rocco gets on well with the doctor today. Sounds like Anthony had a great birthday weekend. Taking a break from Facebook for the time being. Have a great week x

    You never cease to amaze me with your positivity!! When I get no sleep I am super crabby haha.

    Glad you got to spend some quality time with your family!! My youngest sister (the BABY of the family) is 13 going on 14 this year and she’s been acting like a teenager for years now…doing the no smile thing in some pictures too lol!

    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.

    Have a great week, friend and good luck with yoga things! <3

    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!

    • Healthy Diva says

      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!

    • Healthy Diva says

      Thanks Kim! I appreciate that! No rest for me, but I just want little man to get rest and feel better!

  10. Dyanna says

    I hope Rocco feels better soon and ya’ll get some rest. As my little one would say, “ow my goshness! I can’t believe how grown up Anthony looks!!”

  11. says

    Your teenager is turning into a handsome young man:) Your poor wee dude not feeling well – hard – especially when they cannot really take care of themselves – hope it is just a cold and he will be back to tearing the place up soon enough. Happy Monday – Happy Week!

  12. Katie says

    Katie, this is NO lie you always help me when I’m having a rough day & help me change my “attitude” :) This weekend was kinda rough for us too, Drake just was in a funk & I couldn’t seem to figure him out! I felt like a zombie mom all weekend haha. Thanks for sharing all those great pictures, & DQ ice cream.. the BEST! can’t wait to see what your big plans are hehe Hope Rocco feels better soon!

    • Healthy Diva says

      You made MY DAY, I wish I could explain why, but YOU did. I had to copy this comment to share in a post for tomorrow, hope you do not mind. I hope Drake is all better, send you both love!

  13. says

    Haha, teens are too cool, I know that so well! Me and my brother were the same.
    Sounds like such a nice birthday weekend. That Froyo and Cake look amazing!!
    Beautiful Mom and Son couple!
