outfit of the day(bird): sick



sweater~ borrowed from my little sister
shirt~ Old Navy
jeans~ 7 for All Mankind, b. (a resale shop)
necklace~ gift from megan
boots~ Heartbreaker

i have pretty much been wearing this sweater non-stop since my sister loaned it to me. i love it. it's comfy and warm and looks cute with everything. i think it is hilarious that she actually thinks i might give it back...sorry kristin! i have also pretty much not taken off this necklace since i opened it. i have wanted a necklace with the initials of my kids for a while now and the lovely megan bird gave me one for christmas! thanks, megan! i love it. 

i'm going to apologize. i don't have much to write about today...as i sit here typing, i can barely keep my eyes open. my family and i are all sick and have been, on and off, for weeks. just as one of us gets slightly better, someone else catches it. it feels like it will just be a never ending cycle for the remainder of the winter. and poor ben seems to have gotten the worst of it. it's heartbreaking to see my little guy feeling so miserable. poor baby. and mimi and i have a bit of cabin fever. we are used to being out and about for most of the day, so being stuck in the house for so long is really getting to us. i can only hope that we are all feeling better and back to normal life (and more interesting blog posts) very soon.

i hope you are all happy and healthy.

xoxo, nora bird

  16. Nora! hi! It is not bad to post about your sicky-face problems. That is life and our blogs are our lives, etc, right? It is ok. My husband and grand-kids have been passing that bug back and forth here, too. Ours has just been horrid sore throat, cough and aches to drive you to bed with an aspirin in your tummy. I think we are all fine and done with it now. I've been better for two days now. At least you posted an outdoor posed pic of your OOTD. (very darling, btw) I couldn't even do that. My posts have NOT been outfit oriented this week because of that dang bug pestering me too much. I didn't even get to go to my family NYE party!!!!! :( But, see ...that's life.

    (hug) get all better soon, all of you!
