Well the flu has hit the Savage household..... I have the flu for the first time since Jr High. And it is as bad as everyone says it is.... I feel like I am dying. And the worst part? We are going to miss Christmas for the first time EVER with our families! I am too sick to fly, let alone risk getting everyone sick at home. I am in denial right now but I know tomorrow when it sinks in that I should be celebrating at home in Oklahoma that it will hit us hard.
I mean I can't believe my luck! Last night my coughing fits were so violent that I pulled all the muscles around my ribs..... it is brutal. I am quarantined to our master bedroom while Matt is down stairs hoping he isn't next! Right now I am sitting at my desk typing up this post and it is pretty much the first time I have been out of bed since Saturday.
Saturday I was a little under the weather.... I took a nap and when I woke up it hit me like a ton of bricks and by the time I was seen at urgent care Sunday my fever was almost 103. The doctor said that is how it happens...... so suddenly and out of nowhere. Just ask Matt I cried all day Sunday because I was so miserable and of course all this sickness has kicked my migraines into over-drive so I am dealing with all of that too.
I just can't believe I will miss out on spending Christmas with my family.....seeing them open gifts and all of that. I haven't seen my aunt, cousin or grandparents in like 6 months and that devastates me! As of now I am hoping to maybe fly home next week for 2-3 days to bring our gifts home and see everyone but sadly Matt won't be able to go due to work. I told him to fly home now and leave me here but he won't. And plus what if he has it and gets everyone sick at home.
ok ok..... enough of me being a debbie downer...... I will take my sad-sack-sickie-self to bed again.

So you all know that Matt is a District Manager for Farmers Insurance here in Denver and yesterday was our first annual District Holiday Luncheon! I am not gonna lie... it was emotional.....this was our first to host and truly a ending/recognition of a year of change coming to an end for us. This year we moved, Matt found an office space, decorated it, took over the District and making it to the end of the year and our first Holiday party was really special.

A few weeks ago Matt asked me to decorate the District Office for the Holidays and I was very excited to do it! We decided to do a "Farmers Insurance" themed Christmas and it turned out great! Here are a few of the pictures I took.......
