. . . for Lauren and Lauren: The good and the bad

The good and the bad

tee and shorts: old navy   sandals: loft 

The good. 

I got these shorts at Old Navy this weekend for $12.  

I own so many of these v neck tees from Old Navy and wear them all the time. 

These sweet baby sounds.  This went on for many many minutes before bedtime the other night.  

I'm on a serious crafting roll.  This week I've made a curtain for our kitchen and basement.  Some canvases for our basement, a super simple wreath for our front door and started a teepee for our basement/playroom. I'm getting better at being productive during naptime and after bedtime and am quite happy about it!

This recipe.  Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos.  So good and easy. 

The bad. 

I'm completely aware of the ridiculous amount of wrinkles that are on my shirt, which are due to the fact that it was wrinkled up on my dresser and probably belongs in the dirty clothes but I wore it again instead.  

Due to my poor tripod timer pictures you can't really see what these shorts look like.  They have stripes and little flowers on them.  Here's a much better look.  

I had a rough run last weekend.  It makes me a little nervous for my 9 mile run next weekend.  But I'm trying to remember to take it day by day.  

One reason for my rough run is that my knee has been bothering me lately, so I've been trying to ice it once in a while.  Well something went terribly wrong the other night when I iced my knee.  I took the ice off after 15 minutes and this is what it looked like.  I have NO idea what happened and was trying to to panic but kind of was afraid my skin was going to fall off from frostbite.  I realize it probably was not frostbite, as my sister sent me a bunch of pictures of real frostbite. (Don't google it.  Gross.)  Thankfully it went down a little the next day and is almost gone now. 

Addilyn wants to climb on everything these days.  She hasn't wanted to sit still for awhile now but this has made it even worse.  It's cute but is kind of exhausting!

Oh my gosh! I may know what's wrong!! When I was 6 all of a sudden this happened to me while downhill skiing. Dad rushed me to the ER thinking I had frostbite. Turns out I'm allergic to the cold. There is a chemical in your body that activates when you are cold and when that activates I break out in hives. There is a medical term for it but I've since forgotten. All through college (playing soccer) I was never allowed in the ice bath or anything like that. Definitely worth researching or at least talking to your doctor about. There isn't much you can do for it. When I was younger I took medicine before going out for recess, but now I just try to bundle and I always keep a layer between my skin and ice.

Ehh your shirt doesn't look like it has too many wrinkles. Truth... I never iron anything!
I hope your knee feels better soon.

I get like that sometimes in extreme cold...I have very sensitive skin, so I assumed that was why. I have no scientific facts about what it is, though! I hope it all gets better soon!

The baby noises are adorable and I hope your knee starts to feel better!

Cute shorts. Your knee OMG! I guess use a paper towel or something around the ice next time. That is crazy!
