update

21 May

It’s been a long time since my last blog post, huh? Well, only a week but for me that’s a long time and I was starting to have withdrawals.

First thing you should know is, I am possibly dying of respiratory infection coupled with laryngitis. That probably came off a bit dramatic but really it has been a bitch of a few days. I felt it come on Saturday while we were in Sedona vacationing with our friends. Yes, I got sick on vacation. I mean, really how rude, huh? I spent Saturday pretending I felt ok and downing vitamin C. By Sunday I had lost most of my voice and felt a heaviness in my chest that I knew was turning into a respiratory infection. By Monday I had no voice and felt horrible. It didn’t help that we were in the dry desert. Look it up…dry air is nooooo good for respiratory infections. There was one point on Monday that I honestly felt as if my throat was going to close up and I almost made Brian take me to the hospital for a breathing treatment. But, that sounded truly exhausting and I figured we would probably miss our flight home if we did that so instead I sucked it up and downed decongestants and boarded the plane. Luckily, I am still here to tell this story.  I woke up today, in the damp air of Marina del Rey, feeling a bit better, but still not 100 percent.
I did have a solid day and a half of fun before falling ill. One in which I used wisely by sitting by the pool with no sunscreen on. In turn I received the most ridiculous looking sunburn. It’s bad. It’s laughably bad, actually.
So, yeah, I’ve really come out strong the last few days.
I still want to share a few pictures of our trip with you guys though. Sedona is such a magical place. I am lucky that I will be back in August with a few of my favorite girls to celebrate my bachelorette!

    Feel better! I’m getting over a bout of food poisoning myself, here’s to us getting better! At least you got some fun it before you started feeling sick.
