******This week was a great weight loss week for both Kevin and I.  We are feeling it now, clothes are starting to feel too big.  I wore scrubs the other night to work that I haven't worn in 3 years.  It felt wonderful.  This week might be a challenge for me becausue I am headed to St. Louis MO for a Nursing conference.  I will be at the Union Station Marriot if anyone wants to meet for dinner on night.  Have a great week everyone!

I have a WVU Honor Student!

Congrats to my son Jimmy who was honored on Friday by the Dean of WVU for his excellent accomplishments!  His is doing great as a Freshman at WVU.  He is Dean's list.  The ceremony was held to honor all students in the Engineering Dept who's GPA was above a 3.5.  Seniors were given the cords from the cap and gown for graduation.  Something for Jimmy to strive for!  It was good for Matt to see Jimmy doing so well. 

WVU Engineering

Jimmy and Matthew, brothers

Me with Jimmy, he needs a hair cut!

Dinner together
Great time visiting my son

This was his way of cleaning up before we arrived.....it was hidden for for more than 24 hrs, then I found the stash....can anyone say fire hazard?  I made him empty it before we left.  I had to laugh when I saw it...

A closet full of trash! Kids!

Oh, and here is mom, healing from her fall! 
Nice colors mom!

Thanks to all the prayers for my Aunt Beth!

I posted last week about my Aunt Beth.  She was sent to a surgeon for a biopsy based on an abnormal mammogram and breast MRI.  The biopsy confirmed it is breast cancer.  She has been given a good prognosis and it seems she will need a lumpectomy and radiation.  We will be there for her every step of the way!  We adore her and she is much loved!  Thanks for all the prayers! 

I am headed to WVU to visit my son who is Freshman there.  He is being inducted into a National Honor Society for Engineering Students and receiving a Dean's List award.  I am going to take my 16 year old Matt.  I will take pics and share them with you this weekend!  Have a great one everyone.

Black Eye

Mom and Me

Mom and her bruises!
Looks like they beat her up!

Mom gets a mani at rehab!

Hi everyone!  I have received many emails and questions about my mom asking how is she doing?  She is doing well.  She had a fall the other night at the Rehab Center she is staying, trying to put away her clothes in the wardrobe when she was  moved into a private room.  She is in good spirits and can't wait to come home.

Prayers needed!

Say a prayer for my Aunt Beth who has been told she may have breast cancer.  Her biospy was today and we find out on Monday /Tuesday the results.  This has affected many of my friends and a few of my family members...my grandmom, my Aunt Grier and my Aunt Judy.  It is one of the most scariest things a woman can hear.  Here are some photos of my wonderful Aunt Beth, my mom's sister.  Beth is only 11 years older than myself!  She babysitted for me when I was little and I babysitted for her three children: Molly, Kate and Keagan.

Thanks for all your prayers!

Shopping in New York

Purl Soho's wall of color!

Thought I would share some more pictures of my New York trip.

Loved this circle applique at Purl Soho!

Saw this raw edge quilt in City Quilters...

All Saints Co...
Antique Sewing Machines...so cool!
How funny is that?  When we saw these sewing machines,
we went crazy and took their picture.  Very cool!


Flowers in the street!

Now for my mom update....this was her just three weeks ago: 

This is now....in rehab: 
She wanted me to bring her some hand sewing to do
in between all her physical therapy.

Like mother, like daughter, scary!

Love you Mom!
