Weekend Update and Shutterfly Winners

Thank you for all the good wishes for my Father in Law.

I was able to see him yesterday, after spending the weekend with my girlfriends in Northampton, MA.  We talked, laughed, ate, and danced to our favorite tunes in a dive bar.  We did some shopping, where I scored a cute new winter hat, and bought some authentic Whoopie Pie's for Mike and the kids.

My friend Jennifer lives in a woodsy area, her house sits at the top of a hill, with a mountain view.  I ran for the first time since the marathon, I gave myself a two week rest period, to make sure Pez fully recovered.   I went for three miles, and felt great, although the last 1/2 mile was all uphill and a killer.

The weekend flew by.  I've known these girls for so long, it was so wonderful to see them, that I cried when I left.




On my way home, I was finally able to stop at the hospital to see Mike's Dad, which was hard.  He had a bad night last night, so they moved him to the ICU today, and we're waiting to see what the doctors say.

I chose the winners of the Shutterfly giveaway, and don't forget to check out my Tag! You're It! giveaway.  If you haven't entered already, you can find that here.

Congrats to Wells L, Danielle, and Ara.  Send me an email and I'll get you set up!

I had written a commment on your last post but when I sat down at my computer again a couple of days later, I realized I never actually hit "publish" so it was just sitting there in one of my windows. To recap I was just encouraging you to go meet up with your girls. I'm glad you did!

I'm so sorry to hear things are so touch and go right now. I'm thinking of you guys! xoxo
