A Very Nauseous Holiday

Last night Tim and I went out to dinner.  We usually go out to dinner on Saturday anyway, so it wasn’t really a Valentine’s Day celebration.  I had some delicious blackberry sangria, pasta with chicken and mushrooms, and we split a slice of chocolate cake.  It was a nice night together!

Until this morning.  I got up and had an English muffin with PB and coffee, and immediately, my stomach started disagreeing with my decision.  Suffice it to say, it was not pretty 10 minutes later.  I felt better, so I decided to go ahead as planned and try to go shopping to get some of the things I need for the wedding: a rehearsal dress, a shower dress, and clothes for my bachelorette parties.

Unfortunately, no stores have dresses that are anything close to what I want yet.  I couldn’t find ANYTHING, and I went to two different malls.  I did wind up with some cute shirts for work, though.

And I also got two bras, which I desperately needed.  But you don’t get to see those.  Also, pet peeve: when women bring their husbands/fiances/boyfriends to Victoria’s Secret.  There were no fewer than four men awkwardly lurking around VS while I shopped for bras.  Creepy.

Anyway, my stomach was crampy and upset all day while I shopped.  I got home at about 1 o’clock and made the only thing that sounded remotely appealing: plain macaroni noodles with a little butter.

Yeah, that didn’t take well either.  10 minutes later…you get the idea.  This is all extremely weird, because I have a cast iron stomach.  It rarely gets upset.  But today…ugggh.

Anyway, again, I felt a little better and decided to finish running my errands.  I went to Target to pick up the printed pictures of Milhouse and get a few grocery staples, and then to Michael’s to get more adhesive and vellum for wedding-y stuff.  I noticed shadow boxes were 40% off, and I’ve been meaning to get one for our invitation, so I did.

I might dry a few flowers from my bouquet to add after the wedding, but I like it!   I just need to figure out where to hang it.

I also picked up dinner for myself at Target and told Tim to fend for himself.

A plain wheat bagel.  Exciting!

So, that’s our romantic Valentine’s Day.  I’m currently sitting in my armchair fighting nausea and wishing it would go away.  Blech!  I’m glad I took tomorrow off.  At least I was productive.  I’m not sure if it’s food poisoning, or a stomach bug, or what, but it’s not pleasant!

What’s your nausea remedy of choice?

  1. I’m sorry you’re feeling sick; stomach issues are the absolute worst. It’s nice that you got some shopping done and the shadow box with your wedding invitation is really pretty.
    I don’t have any tried and true nausea remedies; I have a cast iron stomach, as well. Maybe some peppermint tea?
    I hope you feel better soon!

  2. nausea remedy = ginger tea

  3. I’m sorry you’re sick! I was recently in a similar situation –but for 3 weeks!! I lived in saltine crackers, dry bread, and ginger ale.

  4. Ugh! What a nightmare. Feel better! (and now i want pasta with butter!)

  5. Pasta with butter looks amazing right now.
    So sorry you weren’t feeling well on Valentine’s Day!

    My food of choice when I’m not feeling well is animal crackers.

  6. Sorry you weren’t feeling well! My go-to remedy in that kind of situation is lots of hot tea!

    And I TOTALLY agree with you on the men in Victoria’s Secret thing…CREEPY!

  7. My nausea remedy is actually minty gum. Chewing a piece of peppermint-flavored gum always makes me feel better. I think just getting the tastes of whatever food I had out of my mouth helps.

  8. Oh man, feel better soon!

    I went shopping recently for the same things – dress for shower, rehearsal dinner, and bachelorette party. It was so frustrating! Most of the stores didn’t have spring stuff yet, so I guess we’ll have to try in a few weeks.

    Love the invitation shadow box ideat!

  9. Ginger ale, the real good stuff if you can find it. Ginger is settling anyways, but the carbonated-induced burping always helps my tummy 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better!!

  10. When ever I feel bad I always reach for that same meal. It’s the only thing and ginger ale as suggested. I am obsessed with ginger ale but it really hits the spot when I feel bad.

    Your shadow box looks so good – what a great idea!
