The Life of Bon: Puke fest.

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Puke fest.

Tonight Hubs and I enjoyed a visit to the temple.  Well.  Enjoyed is a relative term.  I enjoyed it.  Hubs suffered through it.  He had told me on the way over that he was feeling kind of nauseous, and inside the temple it just got worse and worse.  By the time we were done, Hubs looked whiter than freshly fallen snow and was making a beeline for the door.  I didn't even think he was going to make it out before he let loose.  Somehow he did and once he was safely outside he keeled over and vomited violently all over the temple grounds.  

And now, two hours later, I am sitting in my bed listening to him in the bathroom continue puke his guts out.  The boy is sicker than sick.  He takes a sip of water and three minutes later he is profusely puking again. I am trying to be super supportive by sitting close to him and rubbing his back and getting 7 up with a straw.  But mostly I'm just in his way and ask over and over, "Are you sure there's nothing else I can do for you?"  or "How can I make you feel better?"  The questions are futile- I think we both know he's just going to have to let it ride its course, but it kind of helps to pretend to help.  Maybe? Chew on that for awhile.

While I try to nurse my ailing husband, here's some ladies for you to meet and visit if you haven't already.  These chicas went above and beyond with the giveaway this month (Friday is the last day to enter- get moving!)- it really is such a great group of girls.  They are fun, generous, and not bad looking either!  Go show them so love!


Smiling is my favorite.  I'm a photo taking, cupcake baking, glitter loving, Random Act Of Kindness doing, knitting, clumsy lover of life. I find joy in the simple things in life like vanilla coffee creamer, good hair days and the smell of babies. I find comfort in seeing the silver lining in sticky situations and believing the best of people.

NEW YEARS RESOLUTION:  To become a big time blogger just like Bonnie :)  Finish the goal list I created last year.... and be infectiously happy.


About Me: Hey peeps, I'm Allison from a new blog, Lawfully Lost.  I write about my adventures and misadventures as a 20-something law student.  I'm a terrible baker, I'm really bad at crafting, but I have been told that I can take a decent photo.  I have no babies or fur-babies because I have a hard enough time looking after myself.  But, I do have a man baby in the form of my boyfriend of six years.  He's enough work for me.  IMHO, I excel at eating, drinking, laughing, traveling on a budget, and being a tad bit crazy.

New Year's Resolution: I told my neat-freak boyfriend that I would try not to be such a messy slob around the house.  I'm pretty sure I've promised him the same resolution for the last few years.  I'm going to try really hard with this one, and will hopefully make it to February, at least.  Not likely though...  He has put up with me this long, why change a good thing now?

Do you remember a time when men were men and women were women? A time when doors were held, respectful tips were given to pleasant waiters and thank you letters were anticipated. What has become of these times? Are these manners on the brink of extinction?  Provocative Manners is a common sense blog with a bit of sass and a lot of truth.


Hi there! My name is Kelsey and one of my new year’s resolutions is to learn how to cook! I live in Annapolis, Maryland and work as a Development Coordinator at a local art center. Annapolis is breathtakingly beautiful and I am so lucky I get to call this city home. My blog, Kelsey Nicole, focuses on my love for styling and fashion with a bit of lifestyle and travel mixed in.


Hi, I'm Mosby and I blog over at Simplicity is Key.  It's a lifestyle blog all guessed it ME!  I am a senior in college in Tennessee, but grew up in the lovely state of Florida where I hope to return one day.  I love my family, my friends and Jesus.  Come stop by, stay a while, and hopefully become friends!

New Year's Resolution: To reach my goal weight...whatever that may be!

Hi i'm lauren from "one sweet fairytale". i write all about my adventures in crafting, relationships, baking, yoga, and everything else i manage to get myself into. this year started off with a major change when i decided to take a semester off from college. follow along with me as i get myself into even more fun!! 

New Year's resolution: learn to use my sewing machine well!! i want to be able to make my own clothes!! 


My name is Lindsay and I blog at Hot Mess, Cool Day! It's a place where clumsy is the new normal and growing up is in progress (just ask my new husband). You'll find stories about my daily mishaps (from falling down at Starbucks to crashing my car), pictures of my fur pups (they're named after superheroes), and various attempts at outfit posts. I love to eat (unfortunately) and enjoy watching full seasons of TV shows (currently working through The Walking Dead). Also, I talk in parenthesis.
New Year's Resolution: (respectful caps) to keep my apartment clean. You'd think between two people in a 5-room apartment, this wouldn't be difficult. You'd be wrong. Judging by the stack of dishes in the sink and the status of my bathroom, the resolution isn't going so well. Oh well, there's always 2014!

20-something.  Love my life & the people God has blessed me with.  Little moments mean the most to me, because they often become the biggest memories. Just a college girl, trying to figure out this crazy world.   I blog at They Call Her Meghan, where you never know what I'm gonna write about each day.  Come say hi, I don't bite, at least I try not to!  

New Year's Resolution:  Write more.  & not just blog posts, but I want to write my story that I've been working on since my senior year of high school!  


Hi! I'm Kim, I blog over at The Thing About Destiny where you can find me joining in too many  lots of link ups, posting random recipes I actually did not fail at, telling you how middle school Math might be the death of me and doing my best to make you leave with at least one laugh. I live in Oklahoma with the love of my life and our 3 kids.  I spend my days running my kids to sports, working, trying to become active and eat right and of course, blogging.  Come over and have some laughs with me, won't you?


I'm Heidi and here are some things you need to know. 1) I try to be a blogger at Row House 14 when I'm not teaching middle school students. "Try to" because I mostly write about my twitter faux pas and how my cat thinks he is in love with a milk ring and sleeps with it. But I also try to write about tasty recipes and stuff too, so you don't think I'm a crazy cat lady. 2) I make super awesome greeting cards that will probably make you laugh. 3) In my free time, I like stalking rocks stars. Just kidding. Well, maybe not.

New Year's Resolution: To cut back on buying shoes. I may be setting myself up for failure..

Hi there!  I'm Megan, the writer behind A String of Purls!  I call it a 'life and knitting' blog, but it's really so much more than that.  I write about the adventures I go on (a carnivorous plant store, for example, or how I went on a date with a guy who is 6'9"), the pictures I take (hello outfit posts!), and sometimes post tutorials (how to build a lightbox, or how to make a decorative yarn vase).  And, of course, I talk about all of the knitting I do!  I've been at it for ten years, so I'm a bit of a veteran, and completely obsessed!  Come see what I'm up to and say hi!

New Year's Resolution:   I want to be happy this year.  2012 was a really rough year, to say the least, and there's a lot of changes in store for my life this year, so through it all I want to take it on with a smile and positive outlook.  This past fall I realized that the old saying "people come into your life for a reason" is completely true.  That person taught me that I cannot keep living in the past, and how important it is to accept where the pieces have fallen and to move on with life.  That's how I want to live 2013.


  1. i admire your ability to be kind and loving while he's puking. i couldn't do it. i am too much of a sympathy puker. luckily, my husband has NEVER thrown up in his whole 25 years of life. NEVER. hopefully he never will. because that would just mean more throwing up for me. and i don't have time for that.

  2. That is so nice of you to try and take care of him!! Anytime Jamal is sick (only once) I stay as far away as possible!!

  3. Bonnie I just love you so much!
    Can we talk about how excited I have been to see my face on your blog... Uh and as the first picture that shows up on this post, no big deal {totally huge freakin deal}. I am so appreciative of the support you have given to this little blogger :)

  4. There is this video on youtube of a hippo or elephant pooping/farting and it basically looks like its butt is exploding. My husband showed it to me, and said that next time he is sick, I need to blog about it and say, "This is what my husband is like when he is sick". So, maybe you can find it and show it to yours, maybe it will make him feel better?
