I feel re-energized!

My Mom came to visit this week. It was a last minute trip...when I called her crying about CD1 a week or so ago she knew that I needed her. She had a business trip this week and was connecting in Milwaukee on the way home. Instead of taking the return trip to Boston, she came to visit for a couple days, and headed home yesterday afternoon. On the way home from the airport she said she thinks we need to stop trying so hard. After I told her how ridiclous that statement was I said, "Mom, I don't need you to give me advice, I just want you to listen." She got the point.

We had such a great time. We went out to eat, went shopping, made dinner together, had a little too much wine, and went to the opera. Here we are


After she left yesterday I headed down to Chicago to have lunch with some of the Bump ladies! We went to PF Chang's in Schaumburg. I had never been before, it was really good. We forgot to take a picture, unfortunately.

Lastly, M's mustache has really filled in. He is participating in a fundraiser for charity. A bunch of guys grow a mustache for a month and then have a 'beauty pageant'. We went last year, it was really one of the funniest things I've ever seen. The fundraiser/event is for the Make a Wish Foundation. Here is me, M, and his mustache at the opera


Next weekend is our 1st anniversary. We'll be spending the weekend at a resort in the Wisconsin Dells. Can't wait!
