Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!! I hope your day is filled with lots of love, gratitude and laughter!
I am SO VERY thankful for so much life has to offer! My WONDERFUL parents who would do anything for me, My AMAZING family, My SWEET babies, My FABULOUS friends, All My CF warriors out there. I am one lucky girl to have so many blessings!!! Of course I am thankful for all of you too, thank you for still checking Love to Breathe, and following my blog. My heart is full!!!
I am also celebrating My 1/2 Birthday today... Yep I am 31 1/2 :) Just one of the blessings I am thankful for today and everyday! Thanksgiving/ 1/2 Bday... What a perfect day to celebrate both!
The UTES Lost!!! It was so very sad and a lil embarrassing! 47-7 YIKES!!! TCU had a 24 game winning streak and the last time they had lost was to us so let's just say they wanted revenge, and they got it. :(
Saturday was a SAD day for Utah!
We play Notre Dame this Sat so here's hoping we can start a new streak over. Go UTES!!!
Um wasn't it just Halloween?!?! Everywhere I go I have been hearing Christmas music not sure if I am quite ready for that yet. However this did not stop me from belting out Hark the Herald Angels sing last night on my way home from craft night. One of the radio stations started their 100 hours of Christmas music. Crazy~ This year has flown right on by!
Here is a pic of the cute craft my GSB came up with everyone did theirs a lil different. It is my THANKFUL craft! I love it!
~I have been a Blogger slacker... Not only on my updates but following all of my friends I must of needed a lil break we are allowed those right? But NO worries... I'M BACK!!!!
~Taste of Salt Lake is a week away how did this happen... Seriously sorry I keep freaking about how fast this year is gone by I just can't wrap my head around it.
~The end of October I was so excited to have the chance to go to Baltimore to the NACFC(North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference) What an AMAZING time I had with old friends and new friends. Here's a pic of Em and I color coordinated and ALL and no we didn't plan it we just are practically the same person at times it's coconuts!
~I am still kind of feeling like a joint stay is right around the corner I have been staying on top of things tho and checking in with my docs regularly. I blow again on Nov. 15th so I could possibly go in then which would put me in there over Thanksgiving/My 1/2 Bday. Yep Nov 25th happens to be both Thanksgiving and my 1/2 Bday.
~Makena has been sick lately so we have resorted to hanging out on the phone. The stuff that comes out of her mouth is SO entertaining. She likes me to help her spell words and names while we are on the phone so she can write them on her chalkboard so she was going thru the usual names. Our conversation went like this;
Makena: How do you spell Somer, Oscar Lilly, Papa Len, Papa Larry, Gramma Donnie, then she asks me how to spell Papa Rocky?!??!
Me:I spelt each one back... I thought I would save you from that part of the convo! Then I said Papa Who?
Makena: Papa Rocky!
Me: Makena who is Papa Rocky?!
Makena: You know that song Papa papa Rocky!
Me: Oh you mean Paparazzi Ha Ha!!!!
See she's hilarious!!!
This is a pic of a treat she made me when we were playing the hot and cold game. this was my surprise. Banana cookies with nerds on top... again she cracks me up! Oh and she's into pretending she is a pug so the dog bone n the plate is a scooby snack for humans not dogs ;)
~Tomorrow the Utes are playing TCU. We are currently ranked #5 and TCU is #3 so its going to be a GREAT game! ESPN college game day is even here. It's our blackout game so I am off to go paint my nails black and pull out My black Utah hoodie. Its suppose to be 70 degrees tomorrow which is crazy considering it is Nov. But hey Ill take it so I prob will have to just bring my hoodie along. GO UTES!!!
~And of course I can't do a busy being busy post without posting a pic of the babies. These pics I took today of them soaking up the sun thru the windows.
I try to live each day to the fullest by keeping my hopes high, and dreams big!! I think it is important to LOVE as long as you LIVE, and LAUGH as much as you BREATHE!! I am a 37 year old living with Cystic Fibrosis, and an active advocate in the CF community. I make it a priority to raise awareness and help educate everyone on CF. Being diagnosed at 11 months old I was unable to make my own decisions. However, I am fortunate enough to have fabulous parents who chose to help fight my disease. When I was old enough I adopted my parents philosophy and joined the fight. This is my fight.....
