I have a cold, ugh. And some link love

Over the past few days, I’ve been trying to get over a cold. Ugh. Being sick is no fun, and if there’s anything good that can come of it, it can force yourself to slow down a bit and just rest and recover.

Here are a few things that I like to do when I’m sick:

– Drink orange juice, tea and water
– Eat soup and other warm foods
– Rest near a humidifier or take a hot shower and let the steam work its magic. After reading reviews on, I settled on this frog humidifier. Lol. It was the same price at Bed, Bath and Beyond, but I had a $10 off $30 coupon there so I picked it up for $25. We had it on last night and it worked really well. I’m hoping it at least gets us through the winter!
– SLEEP! Lots and lots of sleep

That’s pretty much all I can do at this point, I think. It’s not a terrible cold, but its enough to make me feel run-down and annoyed. Hope you’re avoiding these seasonal germies!

Here’s some links I’ve been wanting to share with ya:

  2. Ugh, being sick while pregnant is no fun at all, I’m so sorry. :( I hope you feel better soon! Soup, tea, humidity, rest; sounds like a great plan.

    (I got the same brand’s red dragon humidifier at Target recently myself, hehe. I hope they work out well for us.)

  3. Oh that’s awful! I was horribly sick several weeks ago so I know just how you feel. Try a mug of hot water, half a lemon, and some honey, it is sooo nice! Hot drinks really helped clear me up!
    Hope you feel better soon!!
    The humidifier is so cute!
