My sweetest Baby Girl danced her heart out in her first official dance recital on Saturday. I won the horrible mother award because she was miserable and sick and I still made her go. She was fine once she got on the stage. That baby is a natural born star! Such stage presence! Look at that form on her arabesque!
I made it to the S.P.F. charity fashion show last Thursday night, pouring rain and all. I met some sweet new friends and had yummy snacks at one of my favorite wine bars, Bin 152, afterwards. I wore some fun new pants and had several compliments and questions about them so I linked them for you. I'm wearing a small for size reference. They are so comfortable and cute, I think I'm going to order another pattern!
I discovered a new, favorite home store in Charleston. It's called Jeffrey Bannon and I could have spent a million dollars there. Don't worry Mr. BMJ, I only dropped half a million! I picked up this gorge necklace and these adorable fish salt and pepper shakers for the kitchen table. He carries the most beautiful home and kitchen goods. I want a do-over on my wedding registry!
For all of you locals, stop by this Thursday night for drinks and apps to celebrate the store's 2 year anniversary! Check out all of the loveliness that Jeffrey has going on in there and get 20% off your purchase!
I've been all over the place in dealing with my feelings about my diagnosis. I'm covering all of the stages of grief and right now I'm in the depression stage. I've had a rough few days and am feeling bad physically and mentally.
My sweet friend, Amy, sent me an e-mail a few weeks ago with a daily devotion. It spoke to me so much that I signed up. I receive an e-mail a day with a personal story and related scripture. It's like they're speaking directly to me. It has been applicable to being a mother, going through a hard time, and having strength. Today's devotion was "You're Stronger Than You Think."
You should sign up if this sounds like something you would like!
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because my second Carmen Marc Valvo couture gown came in the mail. It's even more spectacular than I remembered. I'm saving it for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society Ball on June 6th. Only a few weeks away. I need to schedule a hair and make-up session for the big event!
