.:Market Yourself Monday:.

Happy Sunday!

Did you have a good weekend? I sure hope so.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram (@sumossweetstuff) then you know we were dealing with a sick one year old all last week. First she was super fevered and slept a ton. And that turned to lots of crying/screaming, and I finally took her in to the doctor on Friday after a nite of one hour of sleep (for both me and my baby) to find out that she has a horrible ear infection. Yeah. Not winning any mother of the year awards over here for waiting so long to take her in. It’s been an exhausting week, and even though her sleep is still horrible, the antibiotics are helping and she is much happier during the day. Whew! So that was how most of my week last week was spent.

I got a little reprieve from the sickness yesterday, when I got to meet up with a bunch of super talented ladies for lunch. Some of them were in town for Alt Summit, and the rest of us just came to lunch to meet and chat. It definitely wasn’t long enough, but it was so fun to get together and be around so many talented women.

(And there is someone in the picture that I didn’t have the chance to meet and am not sure who it is. Eep. So embarrassing!)

Before we get started with the party, I just want to let you know to look for a post about BabbaCo and how to beat the winter blues coming this week. I don’t know what it’s like where you’re at, but it’s freezing here and we are having a horrid inversion, so needless to say, we are indoors a lot and rarely venture out!

I’ll also be doing some sewing (assuming we can keep the sickies away) and will be sharing some fun sewing tutorials coming up!

Alrighty, enough from me. The most viewed link from last week’s party was:
