Test Title 1



well ... it happened again.

i'm a spotted mess w/ a ridiculous benedryl hangover. :(

friday afternoon i noticed my polka dot torso and freaked! i had over 20 bright red spots on my stomach and back. a spider in my shirt? no. this had happened before a few weeks back. i couldn't be that unlucky. worse ... office flea infestation? bed bugs? small pox? do not attempt to webmd. (lesson learned!)

i loaded up on benedryl and tried to socialize at dinner w/ friends (my apologies ketric + ashley & kristin + eric) ... and by 9, hit the sack. in fact, i spent the entire weekend in a medicated haze - not good as we had a wedding to attend (congrats reed and taylor)! my sweet husband even bug bombed the apartment to ease my mind. unfortunately by sunday night, i had several new spots despite our remedies. lovely.

so today i gave in and scheduled a dr appt. (without fail - every time i finally give in and head to the dr my symptoms have faded or are completely gone all together. isn't that frustrating!?!) well - today i lucked out and the rash remained.

the conclusion ... HIVES!

soooo thankful that we don't have bed bugs. but what gives with the hives!?! stress? allergies? poo.

while i work off the benedryl - i lack creativity.
but i hope you enjoy this polka dot inspired collection:

Oh, Blair! Hives suck! (especially since they're that ever-so-wonderful non-conclusive kind of thing, so there's still more sleuthing to be done, dang it all!) I hope you like your doctor, though, and it's someone you can work with to get to the bottom of everything. Oh, and from experience: once you build up a little tolerance to the benedryl, you end up with only benefits, no side-effects! Promise!
