The road to recovery...


For all your prayers and positive thoughts.... The heart and lungs were a perfect match! One of Sharlie's surgeons even called them "pristine".

I am so happy for her and the life she will soon have. Sharlie is healing and doing well but having lots of pain and nausea. She is a fighter and is so strong I know she will be healed in no time. Please continue to pray and send her positive thoughts for a speedy recovery.

Feb 16th


Sharlie got the call last night and is currently in the OR at Stanford receiving a new heart and lungs as I type. The pic above is Shar last night waiting to hear if it was a go and reading all her amazing messages from what seems like the world.... She is SO loved!!!! You can also see she is wearing her Sharlies Angels tee... I put mine on last night too and am not taking it off until after her surgery. ;)

Please keep her in your prayers and send her positive thoughts as well as the surgeon team and the donor's family. Please also keep Sharlie's family in your thoughts and prayers. This waiting business is nerve racking and is filled with lots of emotion, but most of all HOPE and Excitement!!!! I cannot wait for Shar to begin her new incredible journey where she can BREATHE!!!

I love you Shar SO SO VERY MUCH!! BCF 4EVA!!!! XO8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There will be updates on Sharlies Angels Facebook page so follow that!!

They Like me they really really like me ;)

Ha ha I have always wanted to say that!!!

I received a blog award from my cute friend Jenny. The Blog award is called the "Liebster Blog" Liebster is a German word that literally translates to "favorite", "dearest" or "beloved". By one blogger giving it to another, they are essentially saying, your blog is a favorite of mine.

The rules of the Liebster Blog Award are:

1) Acknowledge the blogger who gave the award by linking back to them
2) Give this award to 5 other bloggers (who have fewer than 200 readers), and let them know through a comment on their blog
3) Post the award on your blog
4) Best of all - bask in the glory, have fun and share the love!

This is SO very exciting to me!! Thank you Jenny!!! It always makes me happy to know someone is reading my blog, and if I can make an impact on them well then it is ALL worth it!!! This is tough, I love all my Blogging friends but here are 5 great ones in no particular order....

Brad Johns

This month's Hero of Hope Living with CF, Brad Johns, age 39, is an extraordinary man who was diagnosed with CF when he was a young boy. Living with CF all his life, Brad has a positive attitude that helps him overcome any obstacle. Brad is a hardworking teacher who is currently working on his doctorate in education. Working to further his education, Brad stays on top of his treatments with the support from his loving family. Never allowing CF to get in his way, Brad has accomplished so much throughout his life and has no plans on slowing down.

"Now that I am 39-years-old, I make sure I stay on top of my treatments so that I can lead the healthiest life possible. I would tell someone my age that it is important to have a positive attitude and keep focusing on the right things that keep you staying well. I always tell people to be more productive in life so that they can keep their body healthy. You have to find the time to do your treatments and get into that routine and stick with it each and every day. I don't necessarily like sitting with my vest on and doing my breathing treatments while my kids are playing in the house, but I have to remind myself that if I don't do my  treatments than I'm not only cheating myself, but I'm cheating my family."

The groundhog doesn't know!

So today is groundhog day.... Um can a groundhog even really see? 

I think this year global warming trumps the groundhog.... just sayin, Sorry Phil

So apparently he, I think his name is Phil saw his shadow and we have 6 more weeks of winter. Well coming from snow country and considering we haven't had any snow, well I'll take it. But come the triple triple in May if there is snow on the ground I will not be to happy. For all those wondering what Triple Triple it's the theme of my next Birthday. I had my Double Double when I turned 22 and well double numbers only happens every 11 years so it's definitely worth celebrating. Who am I kidding every day is worth celebrating... even today, Groundhog day!!

So Happy day to ALL of you!! Get out there and celebrate BIG!!!

Just in case you didn't notice 3 days in a row on here!! Yep, I am patting myself on the back. I'll be back tomorrow too, BIG weekend in store HUGE!!!!!! Lets just say it'll be Madgical ;)

So Smooth

I joined the smoothie movement!!! With some help from my friend Jess I am up and running. I didn't own a blender so after a ton of research I decided on the Ninja Master. I am pretty excited about it and it was only $34 so you can't go wrong with that.

Today I made my first one...

Above is a pic of me prepping my pitcher. The Ninja master has a motor on top that you pulse yourself and has a dual blade system one on the bottom and one in the middle to get the job done.

Im not one for recipes so I kind of just threw in some stuff, here is what I used...

~2 cups of spinach
~1 frozen banana
~5 strawberries
~1 cup of blueberries
~3 baby carrots
~1 cup of coconut milk
~1tsp of flax seed
~1tsp of Chia seeds

It was very yummy, it looks very gross but I promise so yummy and so healthy!  I am going to start doing a smoothie a day.  I had mine for breakfast today but I'm thinking it'll be more of a afternoon snack.
Does anyone have any recipes that you like to whip up? I am excited to throw more things in and try new flavors. Ill keep you posted.
