#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Bronchitis Buddies

Happy humpday friends.

I'm back and about 25% healthy this week so, just enough to get a post up it seems  #bronchitisyousuck

Go over and say hi to my gal pal Lauren, she's the best co-host and bloggy friend around. So you should probably go make friends--and check out her new puppy while you are there.

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with Lolo

 First a little business. Here’s the scoop:
  • Each Wednesday create a post about what’s going on in your life and #hashtag each item or story. See an example HERE. Be as creative as you want! 
  • Grab the button and include it in your post
  •  Link up so we can all #creep on you and find out what’s new/funny/awesome /shitty in your life.
  • Comment on at least one other blogger’s post from the link up (someone you don’t already know!) if there even is anyone who links up…
  •  Share on all your social sites with #hashtaghumpday
  • Have fun! #hashtagtheshitoutofeverything #whocaresifitsarealhashtag


So it hasn't been a secret around here that I've been sick #imkindofamajorwhiner. The official diagnosis is bronchitis, which was in no way shocking to me. I've already completed a round of antibiotics and also have codeine cough syrup, an inhaler and mucinex all up in my mix, yet I still sound like I smoke 18 packs a day and that I may at any moment cough up an actual lung #sexy. I'm trying to ween myself off of the drugs but... like I said I'm #whiny and #ineedallthedrugs.

Here's the really sad part though. Over the weekend, Gunner got a cough too. Poor guy. He has fits of them and he sounds like he's hacking up a hair ball. Since I'm a crazy dog mom I immediately took him to the vet. I was a little concerned because I just recently got him vaccinated for kennel cough, so what the heck could this be? Well it's kennel cough. Apparently it's like human flu, there's lots of different strains and they can only vaccinate with one. The vet said it's basically doggy bronchitis. Aren't we just a pathetic pair #bronchitisbuddies #poorpup #coughingfordays #extrasnuggly #bestcuddlerever

No - I didn't give it to him. I asked #notspeciestransferrable

The funny part is he has codeine cough suppresant for night time too. Just like his momma #drugbuddiestoo

He was such a good boy at the vet's office

Since I fully skipped the weekend wrap-up #bigsurprise, I have to share a little here too.

This weekend I planted all my pots and planters as well as transferred things from my baskets to the yard #plantingboss #alltheflowers. Shameless plug - here's my tips for planting pots!!!

We also went to a friend's wedding and they had a photo booth #needisaymore #photostripsaremyfave #goofyfacesfordays

Let's trudge on to the weekend my friends - thank goodness I have a short week! #bejealous

  1. Oh noooooo! I'm sorry that you're both sick! But what a cute freaking face! And as much as I hate being sick, I love all the cuddles I get :) Feel better soon!

  2. Ugh! Was hoping you were seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Your sweet puppy, too! Bless your hearts. Hope this week ends much better! We're halfway there! Love your pictures from the wedding- at least you looked great and had fun! ;)

  3. Ahhh - you & your poor doggie!!!! My dogs always want to lay with me when I'm sick & I always am afraid of getting them sick too. I think they don't care - they just want to comfort you.

    Photo booths are the BEST things at a wedding :)

  4. Aww so sorry you are both sick! We've dealt with Kennel Cough in our dogs too, it's sounds so sad when they cough! I'm glad you have a furry friend to snuggle with though, they are THE best!!

  5. Photobooths are my FAVORITE thing! I hadn't ever been in one until the end of last year and had always wanted someone to do it with me and apparently all my friends/BFs sucked. Now I'm addicted.

    My pups have been a bit under the weather too lately, which is strange since they haven't really been out.

    I wish that I could keep things alive. Instead, we have what we lovingly call the plant graveyard in our backyard because it's where we put plants we buy to die. Siiiiigh.

  6. I hate that you're sick, but it makes me kind of giggle that Gunner has Kennel Cough while you have Bronchitis. I mean... what are the odds?

  7. what are the odds that both of you are sick at the same time! pooor babies!! I LOVE photobooths anywhere + everywhere. I'm always up for it.

  8. Collins' had kennel cough when we adopted him and I'm not sure he's completely over it because he's constantly wheezing. Happy to hear you're starting to feel better!

  9. I'm sorry both you and Gunner are sick! I had to laugh at the hashtag #weredrugbuddiestoo I guess the dog and owner that take codeine together, stick together?

  10. But codeine cough syrup is the best :) Hahaha. I do hope you get to feeling better!!! And the pup too.

    I love all your pretty plants, I am going to go stalk your plant post now.

  11. I hope you both feel better soon!!! Try a little hot water with lemon and honey!!

  12. There is no point to this comment other than to say I hope you're feeling better and OMG Gunner. He's too adorable, even when drugged and sick.
