When I got home last night I started feeling completely overwhelmed with all that I have going on this week. I nearly had a break down. Hubby told me that I needed to take Monday off as a “Mental Sick” day. I fought it, I hate calling in to work, but I knew it was the healthiest thing for me otherwise I was going to be way to STRESSED OUT this week. So today I am taking a “Mental Sick” day and preparing myself for a busy week.

This morning, I started with the best bowl of FALL OATS!

Picture 271

I made a bowl of oats and topped it with warm apple slices, cinnamon, and blueberries. With a scoop of Apple Butter!

Picture 269

I have my coffee in hand and I am going to get myself together so I can make use of this day.

Question: Have you ever needed to take a “Mental Sick” day?

The wedding looks beautiful. I love your cute dress!

Jamie in Arkansas said...

Yes!!! And you will feel so much better for it! If I'm not organized I have a meltdown too. Just relax, make your lists and start checking things off! :)

lizzy said...

I have this dress too! I LOVE it because it's sooo comfy but still super cute! after I wore it I had to run over and get 2 more in different colors. I hope your having a great monday and finding time to relax!!

I call them "Mental Health Days" My mom actually used to let my brother and I take a mental health day from school once a year. We were super healthy kids and never got sick so this was like our sick day :)

Kristin (Kristin's Nibbles) said...

Cute dress! Looks like a fun wedding =)

I call them mental health days but yes! I think they are just as important as physically sick days. Glad you took one for yourself :)

MoraPiggy said...

The wedding looked like a ton of fun. I love weddings.
Those measuring spoon favors are so cute. My cuz gave them away at her wedding too. Each spoon has a cute little saying on them.

Mental Health days are just as important as physical health days. Better you take it now, rather than have a melt down later.

Kathleen said...

Love the wedding photos! Looks like you had a blast!

I have to admit that I have taken a mental sick day before (from class, work, stuff) just because I felt like the world was caving in on me and I couldn't stop crying. Sometimes, a girl just needs a day to breathe :) Hope you feel less overwhelmed soon!

Megan said...

And now your work knows you are taking a mental sick day! tsk tsk! haha

Is Ginger a Mulder? Or was she? She looks familiar & I can't figure out why! haha

the wedding looks wonderful and so fun.

i've had moments where i definitely should have taken a mental health day but i rarely do. i just feel stressed out about the classes and learning i'm missing. counterproductive to a mental health day. :)

You absolutely need and deserve a day of rest. You do so much, and you're always going - your body and mind need that rest!

Leianna said...

Great wedding, I live in a Dutch town, windmills and tulips everywhere! So pretty!
Have a great "mental"sick day, we all need one of those sometimes!

Matt said...

I've skipped class a few times for that rason. Sometimes we just "need a day off".

Hope you get out of the funk!

Amanda said...

Love the dress - I have it in white and grey!! And such a great deal!!

Lindsay said...

The wedding looks beautiful!

I've taken mental health days and I always feel so much better afterwards. Sometimes you just need to take care of yourself.

allijag said...

What a gorgeous wedding, everything looks wonderful! :)

LOVE that dress you have on (I loved it when I saw Meghann's - I wonder if old navy still has it!) :)

Taylor said...

OMG those flower girl dresses are ADORABLE. They look almost like a real wedding dress! I love the skirt on the dresses! And when I saw that dress on Meghann's site, I made a mental note to head to Old Navy but forgot! Thanks for the reminder!! I really really like it :-)

Steph said...

Way to go on taking a "sick" day. I've had to do it before and always felt so much better for taking care of myself.

Love the wedding pictures!

Lizzy said...

you and the hubby looked so cute at the wedding! :)

its best that you took the mental sick day, you deserve it girl! I've taken my fair share of those days before too!

RunToTheFinish said...

yeah finally a face shot of skinny bride!!! She is gorgeous in that dress and what pretty hair, seriously love it.

you guys look like the day was a blast from start to finish

Lauren said...

Bobbi my dear, you look stunning! I love that dress and your wear it so well.

What a great wedding! You all look like you had such a wonderful time.

I feel like I need these mental health days at least once a week. If I don't feel entirely organzied and on top of things, my world is all out of wack.

Hope you get adjusted and back to your regular routine.

Have a great week girl!

It looks like a great wedding! I keep saying I'm going to take a Mental Health Day, but I keep finding excuses from doing it. I am such a wimp.

Angie Eats Peace said...

The cake at the wedding was beautiful!
I have probably needed a Mental Health Day, but have never taken one. I am a stickler for good attendance at work.

"Skinny Bride" said...
