My The3Day Walk for the Cure in pictures....

I have so much to write about my 3Day Experience this past weekend. Currently, I am laid up in bed with my left leg up resting both my knee and my ankle. My right foot, well my right foot looks like something out of a horror movie. I will spare you pictures. 

For now, I do not have the energy to share words, but I will share pictures of one of the many favorite moments of the3day Walk for the Cure!

Cheering Section #1, Day 3.
MAMA!!!!!!!!  JAMES!!!!!!!

Remember to breathe...
(and, I really need to get my color done. Or brush my hair. Better yet, wash it.)

Lilly made us a poster! The best poster ever!

High Five to the Maidens for Mammograms and Margaritas!

Don't cry mama!

From this cheering section on the last day, I did go on to walk a few more miles, then get "swept" to lunch so I could get my knee fixed. From there my team mates and I, along with thousands of others went on to complete 60 miles. I will write more about my wonderful team, the overall experience and what it all means to me soon. I promise!

I can not leave this post without a few words, not the full story yet, but simple words to describe my teammates on Maidens for Mammograms and Margaritas. I met three women who were simply wonderful, fit into my life like a glove and who will remain in my life until they kick me out of theirs. I spent 36 straight hours with the team captain, Periwinkle Papillon (or Sara as I like to call her). I can't imagine how we haven't been friends forever, and I look forward to a lifetime of laughs, hugs and friendship!

We were so very tired! Can't you tell?


PS:  I haven't updated my widget in the right column, at the top yet. I did complete the3Day but if you still want to donate to this amazing cause, please do so. As soon as they stop collecting donations in my name, sometime in October, I will put up a new one for general donations. Thanks!

OK... I am at a loss for words because I MISS YOU SOOOO MUCH! Seriously, I don't think I can type it up because I might just start crying (again).

I'm so glad blogging connected us in this bizarro world and that we are now lifelong friends. I can't wait to get us all together and properly celebrate our accomplishment together in honor or our loved ones.
I'm very proud to have done this 3-Day with you and I'm pretty sure without your laughter and hugs along the way I wouldn't have made it!

Congrats! I have always wanted to complete that event and hopefully I will once the girls are a little older.

Anyways - Congrats! You are an inspiration!
