Here I Am!!

Yes I'm still alive.  I hate that I'm so "behind" in blogging.  Last week was just crazy for me.  I really didn't feel well all week (combo of MS fatigue and back pain) and I had committee meetings two nights and had to work supervising a visit one night.  So that left NO time for blogging and I had fun stuff to post but just not enough time.  So here I am, Monday night watching the Bachelor Pad and just got home from working (supervising a visit) again.  I did have a very nice weekend.  I did nothing on Friday night and Saturday.  I didn't even turn on my computer.  I just hung out and relaxed and it was SO nice.  I only left my house on Sat for an hour to get a massage and it was wonderful.  My back is still hurting but working on that. . . Yesterday I went to the Cape for a family dinner with my grandmother who went back to Florida today.  We had a great time.

Yesterday was also Jenn's birthday (29th right Jenn?)!  So we celebrated with gluten free cake/cupcakes w/ sparklers!  Happy Birthday Jenn!  So glad I have you as a sister-in-law!

 Notice I'm "double fisted" holding the girls' drinks.  They had no kid cups!  Haha!

Peyton is at such a sweet age.  She LOVES to pose for pictures!  Last night when I walked out of the room in my dress Peyton looked at me and in the sweetest voice said, "Jodi you look beautiful!"  She melts my heart.  I hope she is always that sweet!

We had to take a family photo (minus Scott who couldn't make it).  This is the first time we've all been w/ my grandmother in a couple of years b/c last summer we all visited her on different days.  It was such a night evening together and the girls were so well behaved.

After dinner we continued the conversation in the parking lot.  Peyton gave Ma plenty of hugs but Ella was playing hard to get.  She was much more interested in tasting the frosting then giving hugs!! :)  I'm so glad that we were able to be together yesterday to celebrate Jenn's birthday and spend time w/ my grandmother.  I'll cherish the memories we make together and hope for many more celebrations w/ my grandmother!  Looking forward to her 85th birthday 59th birthday in November!!!

Weekends always go by way too fast!  The next 3 weekends I'll be away (the Cape, New Jersey and the Cape for the MS Challenge Walk).  I'm in total denial that summer is coming to an end.

In other news I can't wait to share w/ you about Jenn's "MS Crawl for a Cure" bar crawl that she held last weekend to raise money for the MS Challenge Walk.  Have I mentioned that my awesome sister-in-law and cousin-in-law are walking 50 miles in 3 days for MS!  I'll be sharing a lot more about that in the coming weeks.

Also I've hit 100 followers!  Very exciting that 100 people find my blog interesting enough to follow/read.  In honor of this big occasion I will be doing a giveaway.  Give me a few more days to get the "prizes" together and then I will post! TTYL
