Thanks guys!

Thanks for all the well wishes for Derick. He's doing MUCH better. He went to a school dance last night and even danced. Although he told me that he couldn't dance at all. So I offered to teach him. I have a few moves from my clubbing days that I pull out on occasion. To which Derick replied "I don't want to learn how to dance from an old bag. And I mean that in the best possible way". Then he laughed and smiled and said he was kidding. The little shit. ;-)


On another positive note...the lovely Jennie took me to lunch yesterday which I am so grateful for. It was just the thing I needed. We managed to get in a little shopping and I bought the cutest EVER measuring spoons.



I got them at Anthropologie. I actually copied this picture from someone's blog and I thought I book marked that site and now can't find the blog again. So, if this is your picture, I hope you don't mind that I borrowed it! The Anthropologie site has the spoons listed but I can't copy the picture. I actually got the multicolored set. On the back of the Giraffe necks is the measurement for each spoon. I fell in love with these! If you go here and click on the 'Open Larger Image' button, you can see the actual set I got.

But I have to say that I am so mad at myself. I accidentally broke the smallest spoon. I watched it fall, in slo mo, to the floor in my kitchen last night. I called the store today and they are going to be so kind and replace it for me. For free! Awesome.

Anyway...thanks again for the positive thoughts. We really appreciate it. It's going to be a long road, but I think with the support of family, friends and medical professionals we will prevail and come out on the positive side.

I'm glad to hear things are a little brighter this weekend!

Let's hear more about your clubbing days!

Hey darling! It was my pleasure.

I know you can't copy a picture from the Anthropologie site, but if you search the item's exact name a lot of the lines are sold at other places. I do this for every Anthropologie item I like (and picture I want to share). But I would be careful about taking pictures from other blogs as it takes bandwidth and such.

Anyway, I am so glad they're replacing it. And those spoons were adorable. I loved them.

Movies and lunch again soon?

Those are adorable...

Im happy to hear about the dance... not the old bag part but you know... children are very resilient and those that bounce back quickly are sure to have a great set of parents and support behnd them... GO YOU!!

Am glad things are starting to look a little better... nothing like a girls lunch and shopping trip to get your endorphins going .... and mind off of sad thoughts.

I'm glad things are going better with Derick now. Also, I love those spoons and I almost cried when you said you broke one. Thank goodness it's being replaced for free.
