Rolling in the Deep!

Adele!!!! I had plans to go see her last May but for those of you that follow her know she got sick with laryngitis and had to cancel the rest of her tour. I was nervous she might not reschedule but then she did, for Aug 21st. YAY!

She is the cutest thing EVER!!!! I just wanted to put her in my pocket and take her home. She had the cutest accent and she interacted with the audience a ton she is just so "real". She could of talked all night I just love a accent, accents make everything sound better just imagine someone reading ingredients to you with a accent.... AMAZING!

The show was AWESOME, she has some fabulous pipes and breathers on her and if it's even possible she sounded better than her cd. She was just on the VMA awards and was so cute every time they showed her in the audience she was just singing a long to whoever was performing. I am so glad I had the chance to see her perform.

Kevin Bauereis

The newest Hero of Hope Living with CF, Kevin Bauereis, 28, who has worked hard his entire life, never letting CF get in the way of his dreams. As a testament to his work ethic, Kevin is currently completing his residency in anesthesiology and plans to become a pediatric anesthesiologist because he is passionate about working with kids and giving back. Struggling to accept having CF, Kevin had a hard time coming to terms with his disease and being compliant with his medication as a kid. It wasn't until meeting with his doctor who told him if he wanted to go to medical school and become a doctor, he would have to learn to make his health a priority before helping others.

"Setting goals and working towards your dream is the best thing you can do because it will help you focus on the future. I used to dream about being a doctor all my life and I can now say that through hard work and determination, I accomplished my dream. Not once did I let CF stand in my way. CF should never be an excuse for somebody not reaching their dreams. We may not live a long life but we can live a dream-fulfilled life. No matter how big your dream is, go after it with 100% motivation and effort because if you do, your dreams can come true."

Heroes of Hope™ Living with CF recognizes individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF) who live full and productive lives while managing their healthcare needs. To date, Heroes of Hope has honored more than 70 outstanding individuals with CF around the United States. Heroes of Hope recipients inspire others through their outstanding accomplishments, dedication to health maintenance and contributions to their communities.

Fly by the seat of my pants

Some of the best times are those that are unplanned...

Last Saturday around 4 pm some friends and I decided to get some last minute tickets to go see Tim McGraw which started at 7. Crazy right!??!
We had a BLAST!!!!! So much fun. We just sat on the lawn seats at one of the outdoor venues, it was seriously such a good time! I need to make a point of being more spontaneous!!! I had my cowboy boots on, borrowed my friends hat, packed a o2 tank just in case and we were off. We got our Country on!!


 I have noticed I over use the ! to whomever that may bother... sorry. However, I don't think I am ever going to stop using the ! or in my case never going to stop over using it ;)

Have a great MON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ha Ha!!

Really Aug?!?!?!

Um where did July go? Wow I feel as if this summer is racing by. I am going to guess that I am not alone on this feeling.

I have been slacking on my blog posts. I need to catch up...

~Osc and Lills both had their yearly check ups in July I can't believe they are 6 & 7. All was good with both of them Osc did have a lil ear infection but it has cleared up. I started giving them both a lil bit of plain yogurt daily just to help keep them healthy, dogs need probiotics too ;)

"can we go now?" 

~I had a check up in July and seem to be maintaining. My Fev1 was a 33 which seems to be my new baseline but am hoping I can still blow higher, I guess I always hope to blow higher. What do they say reach for the moon you'll land on the stars? Something like that. Maintaining is key tho and I am doing everything I can and more to keep these twins in tip top shape. I started putting my treadmill at a incline when I walk on it, maybe this will help some it requires more o2 so its doing something! I do find my sugar levels get a lil low (well I am assuming I just get that feeling that they are) after my workout does this happen to anyone else? is that normal? I am not diabetic maybe a lil borderline but aren't all Cfers ;) they did say once I was hypoglycemic so maybe thats what I am feeling.

~Fireworks are finally over thank goodness. They were getting on my nerves a whole month of them is a too much in my opinion, and people were doing them at all hours. Ugh! The babies were not loving it either, they even slept by my bed a couple nights poor lil babies were scared.

~My friend Sharlie is going thru transplant evaluation she has been blogging about her days during the whole process. Click here to follow her blog. Any positive vibes, good ju ju, prayers whatever it is you may have she would greatly appreciate them.

~I discovered a new Ben & Jerrys ice cream flavor. LATE NIGHT SNACK! It is so yummy, it has vanilla bean ice cream with salted carmel swirl with choc covered potato chips. How amazing does that sound?! So far to date I have finished off 3 containers of it so I thought I better take a lil break Ha!

~ I have been swimming twice this summer where I actually have gone in the pool. I did just once last summer and then before that it prob was 4 years or so. It's my lil mermaid McNoodle she can make me do anything. She thought it was pretty cool that I could do a handstand in the pool. She's so cute and getting smarter every day, she is 5 going on 20. I can't believe she starts kindergarten soon, Riv is 2 now and won't say my name for the life of him, he's a stubborn one.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.
