We started the day at church with our friends Amalia & Hullar, then on to a deeelicious brunch, complete with a very potent Mother's Day mimosa. (Boo-ya!) Then we headed to a huge book sale in the Ag building on campus. The Maxster was very tired by that point (borderline rowdy), so we headed back home for family nap time. I'm a big fan.
I eventually made a Target run on my own and picked up the goods for our Relay for Life shirts. We're making Max a onesie and I'm making a shirt for myself because can you believe it?- we couldn't find an 'I support my husband/testicular cancer survivor' shirt anywhere online! Crazy! There's *every* other possible family member (even DOGS) and other type of cancer out there, but not any for a testicular cancer survivor wife. What the heck?! So anyway, I decided to just make my own and it will rock. Hard. =) I was even lucky enough to find an actual orchid t-shirt, which is the 'ribbon' color for testicular cancer.
(Side note: it's not too late to donate to the cause- the relay is next weekend! Michael is just $242.31 shy of his $1,000 fundraising goal. Please click on the box to the right if you feel so moved! Thank you!)
As I wrap this up, I want to mention four special ladies: my friend Jenn, Heather, Shana and a high school friend. These four mothers have very recently lost their beautiful children and my heart goes out to them. I'm sure that this day was not easy, but I will remember all of their kids in my heart and I hope you will, too.
