Gummy Worms

I don't brag much about my hubby, but I need to take a minute to tell you how amazing he is.  He busts his ass everyday to make a great life for us.  It allows me the freedom to be a stay-at-home bulldog mom.  Which then gives me the freedom to really focus on my health by getting to spend all the time I want at the gym!  I can get all my breathing treatments in without a crazy work schedule.  And I can go to appointments without worrying about asking for time off work, which is always a pain to do and a waste of a vacation day!  He goes above and beyond for me, and I'm truly grateful.

Last weekend, we were out doing some running around.  On the way home he stopped in a gas station for a red bull (or maybe it was beer, I can't remember) and asked what I wanted.  Surprisingly I was craving gummy worms that day, not my usual Sour Patch Kids.  Not just any gummy worm, they have to be the Trolli sour gummy worms - duh!

Anyway, he came out empty handed and said they didn't…

CF Appointment

I was too busy blogging about the Great Strides event and not having any pictures of my college graduation that I completely left off my most recent CF Appointment, which took place on May 9th.
Not much to report.  I've been feeling great, working out, eating good (not as good as before, but still not loaded with candy and pop), and enjoying life.  One weird thing did start the 1st week of May.  I noticed my heart doing some weird things.  It started just once or twice a day, then progressed to many times.  What it is you ask...I don't know.  It's hard to explain.  Typically you don't feel your heart beating or think about it.  But I was watching tv and noticed it started to flutter a bit.  I thought maybe I was nervous watching a suspenseful show.  But then it happened again the next day, and again the following day.  I should have been keeping a record of when it occurred and what I was doing.  Oops!  But, I do know that it has been while I haven't been doing any…

Graduation Time

Tis the season! Graduation season that is.  It's hard to believe that this month marks my 16th year I've been graduated from high school and 12 from college.

High school isn't really a big deal to me.  It wasn't really my favorite time of life.  I had braces, frizzy hair, and was rather awkward.  It's college that I really grew up and found myself.  It was one of the best experiences of my life.  Learning to live outside of my parent's home, figuring out what I wanted to do with my life and truly embracing that I have CF and not letting it stop me from reaching my goals.

I can't say that when I walked across that stage 12 years ago that I envisioned the life I live now (it's way better then I could have dreamed).  There were 2 things for sure: 1) I wanted to marry Will and 2) I would have a bulldog.

#2 happened first...I got my beloved Sophie the very next day!  #1 took another year to happen :)

My little brother just graduated from USC on May 5th.  Co…

Great Strides 2017

Well, the big event is over!  My team and I participated in our local Great Strides walk on Saturday, May 6th.  Thankfully, we had a beautiful, sunny day...but not too hot!

The Augusta, GA walk had a goal of raising $60,000 and they surpassed that by over $5,000!  Fabulous!

I wanted my team to at least raise $12,000, but ideally beat our total from last year of $13,325.  And, we will succeed!  We aren't officially there yet as we are waiting for a donation to come from a company match...so that goes directly to the foundation. BUT we are supposed to get credit for it still.  When that comes through, we will be at $13,595.63!  Woohoo!!

I'm happy to have had another successful year!  So very thankful for my wonderful supporters!!

Here are some pics from our day:




Unfortunately, I didn't take a ton of pics that day :(  I was busy running around like a crazy person.  But, it was a great day!! Afterwards, my team and I had a celebratory lunch!! Which was even more fun!

Great Strides Update

I can't believe the Great Strides walk is on Saturday!  I blinked and it was here!

Just wanted to share an update on our progress.  Last year CF Stinks raised $13,375.  I would love to get there or even beat it this year...so we will see.

So far, we are at $11,900!!

I had an online Pampered Chef Party which raised about $100.  So, hopefully that check will get here soon so we can count it towards our walk goal.

As always, I'm blown away by the generosity of my family, friends and supporters.  You all fill my heart with joy and pride to know such amazing people! 💗

I picked up our team t-shirts yesterday, so I'm so excited to get those in the hands of my teammates.  Looking forward to a beautiful day with those I love most!!
