What's Going On (I Feel Old)

We had the BEST ten-year anniversary I've ever had (Haha!) this past weekend! It was so relaxing and fun and full of reconnecting and inside jokes and little moments that add up to this big relationship with my best friend. We had a blast!

We drove to Charlotte and stayed the night in probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. It wasn't anything uber-fancy but it was nice and safe, and they had the best restaurant! Yum! We went to IKEA and Concord Mills Mall and of course, Hobby Lobby, my personal fave!

There's no Hobby Lobby around here (boo!), but I could've stayed and lived in the fabric section of the store alone. We each had designated spending money and let me just say I dropped a lot of mine on some super cute fabrics (I'd share the cute pic of the fabric but Blogger's being obstinate again.)! Not sure yet what I'll do with them (besides stare and drool), but I loved it! CC was hilarious when we walked in and he realized how big the store was. He psyched himself up to be there for a while, which was hilarious. People were staring, that's how hard I was laughing. Such a great weekend!

Once we came home, we served Sunday at church and helped our friend pack up her salon since she's relocating her business. That was fun too but that day I developed a fever blister on my lip.

Having never had such gnarly nastiness on my face before, it's been a rough week for me personally. The workweek has been really great and everything's fine, but the devil has really been using this to tear me down. Making it more difficult is that NO ONE has said anything to me from Sunday to last night. Apparently that's the polite thing to do, but I'd rather just have it out in the open (no pun intended).

Yesterday I finally went to the dermatologist (who apparently can practice medicine at the age of 12) to get some answers for the fever blister as well as some other skin issues I've been having. Basically, I was told I have several skin issues going on (nothing major, but now..), I have a well-stocked 'pharmacy' of creams and lotions at home that I need to apply twice a day. I feel old. And ridiculous.

Is anyone else in this same boat with me? When did we become adults and not young twenty-ish kids anymore? Is this why I need coffee every morning? And chocolate by 3pm every afternoon? I'm starting to feel crotchety. Is it cold in here, whipper-snapper?! (I digress...)

So glad you had a great weekend away! Sounds like a blast and I can't wait to see the pictures of your fabric. I want to drool too. :)

So..does this mean that my hair stylist moved or are you talking about someone else? Do email me a new location if I need to know. LOL!

Sorry about your fever blister and apparently other facial issues, which for the life of me, I can't even fathom what. Your face has always been so beautiful and flawless. I'd hate to see what a Dermatologist would say about my face. Ugh! I'd go broke with all they would want me to buy. LOL!
