The symptoms. VDA

Well it started two weeks ago with a headache.....then it turned into a dagger in my throat, which apparently they call strep throat. I waited from Friday until Tuesday to go to the doctor. Took the antibiotics as I was told. Then I like to say I slept all day crying every time I had to swallow Nyquil to fall back to sleep on Wednesday. Are you supposed to take Nyquil during the day...well I did, got a sub, and Wednesday night when I still wasn't better I got a shot. Right in the butt. I felt better within four hours, first time I slept through the night without getting up to drink nyquil every four hours. I thought I was in paradise!!! I was! My throat went from bleeding and throbbing to scabbed...or so it felt.

I thought it was paradise. . . Then around Sunday I started seeing bumps on my face, I continually told Brad.. "Look at the bumps! Do you see them?" He said, " I can hardly tell, don't worry, you are beautiful." Typical answer.

Then they were spreading...these bumps. Brad kept saying I looked fine...
I said to him about on Tuesday, "I don't care how I look!!! I just want you to acknowledge that they exist!"

Viewer Discretion advised...due to Brittany half dressed and some disgustingness ahead. 
The bumps...those bumps...they own me now.

Brad just kept down playing it, in order to keep me confident.

Now I am more than confident with myself.

I currently am sporting the rash as if it is the new scarf, or the new boots.
 Can you guess what part of my body this is??
It doesn't really matter, since every body part looks like this.

The rash is just doing great residing from head to toe.

 I don't even know what smooth skin looks like anymore, or feels like. 
I have gone through 3 bottles of Cortizone, one pack of Benadryl and lots of Epsom salt baths.

And I have family pictures to look forward to after Thanksgiving, not only will I be bloated, but covered in a million small pox. Good thing we are wearing black and I am wearing a high necked white button up...

Now its off to Standrod for Thanksgiving...stay tuned for that wonderful disaster of food, children, and spreading of diseases.

(you know because people are sick...duh)

Went for a little visit..

It was Echo's state volleyball. In between the games we went to the driving range. Thanks Aaron for buying all the balls, and thanks old man with nice golfing shoes for giving us your left over balls.
It was a beautiful fall day and Brad just swung away. Golfing is like baseball. Thats all I know about it.

I like his wash in his jeans right here, and his knee placement. Nice Bradley.

 So graceful. I look like a dying Indian when I swing.

And the finale. Perfect 80000 million yarder. Nice.

Chandler was more of the tomahawk. 

Brooke did her motherly duties....to her sister.

Okay, so I was teaching Ethan how to golf....and he said, "Why are you teaching me, you aren't very good?" Then I said, "I know, I'll leave."
Ethan made me promise not to give him any tips, the tips only made him worse.
Aaron just spoke Canadian the whole time. He doesn't speak much English.
He took over teaching Ethan. Ethan speaks that language. 

Ethan is a fine lookin gent. He is tall, lean and nice. Hope the girls are nice to him.

Landon kept asking Brad, so what did I do wrong there...
Brad would say, "I don't know."
Then I would say, "Well at least say something so you sound smart."
He is the only one who truly knows golf (Aaron too, but you know he doesn't speak much English) but yet he offered little to no advice due to being too humble thinking his advice wasn't valuable. 

Tiera was quite cute out on that fall day and I love her shoes. Like slippers, thats my thing. She is married to Landon if you forgot.
I'm glad my husband will always look young, I don't want to be married to an 80 year old, when he really is only 40. If that made sense...it made sense to me, in my head.

I can't tell if this picture is creepy or cute. My left eye is Asian.

We found a worm and Faith quickly named it Echo. Here I am pretending to eat the worm. Let's take a closer look.
Her worry and concern.

The close up. The worm is struggling for its life, it has only had close encounters with beaks, never with glossed lips and tongues. 
Also check out the cute Zebra pink pants I just got her at Gap, I go in to shop for dress pants and I come out with zebra pants. So typical of me.

Oh I forgot about Echo and volleyball.
Here she is facing the net wiping her brow. So tiring volleyball...you know Echo is like 6'5''. And she had about 4 blocks in a row, it was exciting.

This image is speed walk Echo.
She is just zooming through time with her bootie. you know she has always had a bootie like that, so cute, every since she was a wee babe. 

Well they lost at state, but we had a fun time.

We payed 20 dollars to watch her game, but there were free mini chocolate milk (Idaho Dairy hosts sports) so Brad said, "I paid 20 bucks for this, I'm taking 5 milks."
7000 calories later, we were happy.

A whole new world...

Halloween happened...
in my house it happened a week early. You see we dressed up as a couple. I would say Latino couple, but I think we were going for more of the Mexican side of things.

I think we succeeded in our feat.
Is my belly hanging out from the bottom a little? 
Yes yes it is.
And do I have a unibrow?? Yes, yes I do.
Did UP characters win best costume??
Did Jamie play her part perfectly?
Yes. She was casting spells on me all night.

The whole party was a success.
We went up to Zermatt to our friend's parent's timeshare and had a grand ole time.

And as for my new world...
They are doing well. Chelsea borrowed me her attire. I didn't want to dress up all fancy. Then the kids wouldn't take me seriously, they wouldn't listen to me when I yelled. 
JK I don't yell.
I may raise my voice sometimes?? Nah...probably not :)

 They are doing quite well :)
