Vitamin D and a whole lot more...

Ok I am getting all caught up I just got back from vacation in Az, aka The Valley of the Sun! I had a blast as always! I stayed in my lil slice of heaven with Odie and Nannels. It was very relaxing and the perfect temp. I wasn't as good as laying out as I usually am. I am VERY white right now and I didn't want to burn so I traded off sun and shade and wore 45 all over. 

Sat night I went to a 50th wedding anniversary with some close friends of the fam it was so great to see everyone! The Moskal daughters pulled off a fabulous party for their parents. Two of the daughters are my blogging buddies Kathy and Patty. It was SO good to see them click on their names to read their blogs, I have known them both forever they use to babysit me :) I wish I could of spent more time with them. Hmm perhaps the next Moskal reunion should be in SLC???

Kath,Patty & I

I thought this pic was funny... Our feet ? Looks like it might be the bottom of the pic above.

Sunday I went to a fun BBQ with some friends that I haven't seen for a while as well. It was good to catch up with them. Mon I got to go to lunch with my good friend Summer from High school. Yep 2 of us... We spell it different tho but in high school both of or last names started with Mc. I hadn't seen her for 3 years, she just moved to Az so I am excited to see her more often! I got to meet her cute lil baby Adia who is such a doll. That night I got to spend time with my Cousins which is always fun and Odie cooked us some AMAZING steaks mmmmm! 

Sum and I with Baby Adia

Tues I had to leave and I always wish I could just have a couple more days. I met up with my Cyster Sara for coffee before my flight. I wish we would have had more time together but I will be back again soon. It was SO great to finally meet her in person! She is SO fabulous and at the end of our visit Mike her husband met up with us. I am so glad I got to meet them both they are such an amazing couple. We were so pressed for time and were covering so many things that we forgot to get a photo. I am so bummed, but we will next time for sure! We were talking about the e mails that Sharlie, Sara and I were sending back in forth when we first came up with "Cysters" and Sara asked what we should refer to the guys as.... so now we have Cysters and Fibros! So Ronnie you are our Fibro :) We are looking into getting a patent for these ;)

So I was way paranoid to fly with this whole Swine flu. So I wore a mask from the Az curb to the SLC curb. I wish there was a hidden camera in the mask because the looks and comments were quite entertaining. 

A couple comments I got:

Guy sitting across the aisle from me~ "Should we be afraid of you or are you afraid of us"
Husband~"Look she has a mask"

Daughter to her Mom~ "What? Why is she wearing a mask"

Girl in front of me~ "Sorry I fell asleep did you hear me make a noise"
Me~ "Oh no you're fine" with a sweet chuckle
Girl~"Oh good I didn't want you to think I was a freak"
Me~"Um I am the one in the mask"
Girl~ "Yeah so do you just not want to get sick?"

Lady in front of me in the security line~ "So are you scared of the Swine flu?" a lil snidely
Me~ YES! and I also have a lung disease so I am trying to stay healthy.
LAdy~ "ahh oh stumbling for words I am sorry to hear that" at least she didn't tilt her head :)

wearing my mask
Mother's day is less than 2 weeks away... The perfect gift would be a Love to Breathe necklace!

I can't believe you came all the way out to my home state and didn't stop by and say hi! So how jealous are you of our weather? Don't worry, give it about 2 weeks and we'll be in triple digits!

I read your comment on my blog...I'm so glad to hear that you're going to start a new exercise routine. Very exciting! You'll have to keep us updated with your awesome PROGRESS...

Glad you got to spend time with Sara and Mike as well. They rock!

Funny update!!! We just missed you in Az! B and I are going to Scottsdale in 2 weeks and our return trip had a lay over in SLC!!! B/c we are taking Ellie, B had the travel agent book a nonstop would have been so much fun to meet! Obviously, with the swine flu being such an issue (especially here in Houston) our plans could change at any minute, but I'm glad you wore the mask! I already told B to get ready b/c Ellie and I will both be wearing them!

I'm so glad you had a good time. I am going to Arizona next month and am nervous because of the swine flu. I am pretty sure I will be getting a mask. Should I get one for my girl too?

I was just catching up on your blog and saw the breathe necklaces. Do you know how much goes to CF?
Also, do you know the site to Haley Palmer? I'd love to see the bracelets that she used to make. My niece is starting to make bracelets for my son Lil' Chris and 100% is going to go towards a cure for CF. Do you know what kind of bracelts Haley used to make and how much she charged for them? I would love my niece to be as succesful as her.
