So SICK of being SICK!

Don't know about y'all, but I am just about over this season. Yes, it's been a very nice, mild winter, but that has lead to germs festering everywhere, and somehow my three kids seem to be very good at finding them ALL!! Stomach bug, colds, coughs, and now a double ear infection?!?! We have had friends at the ER, friends admitted to the hospital for multiple nights, etc. I am ready to move on out of sick-ville (and missing-preschool-ville), and have some well days!!

Because of this sickness, I totally flaked and forgot to do the Facebook giveaway for the Charlotte Style Exchange early shopping passes last week! The contest is on our Facebook page now (you have until Thursday to enter).

Hope you all have a great (and germ-free) week!!

Blessings,
The Buzz
