I'm Done

I'm done pouting.  I'm moving on.  My blog life stealer is not going to make me angry any longer.  Time to get on with life.

Jack wearing his "helmet."  Or as we non-2 year olds call them, "headphones."

Today my Mom and I spent a wonderful day shopping for the LeBonheur 7th floor food pantry.  We then made a quick Hobby Lobby trip to grab a couple of picture frames.  (seriously people.  It's my favorite store in all the world.)  After that we chased around a Hazelnut Latte and White Mocha from Starbucks, both times striking out totally.  What's the luck that both Starbucks in a 1 mile radius would have espresso machines on the blink?

We were saved by a meeting with a non-profit accountant at a local coffee shop in Memphis.  I was so excited to pick her brain and get some great ideas for the Go Lucy Go Foundation moving forward.  The sky is the limit for the Foundation and the support we get from you all is so important.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.

We got behind this truck in Memphis.  Thank you for still caring for my baby. That pink and purple ribbon says "Go Lucy Go."

After that it was a trip to LeBonheur to deliver food and BOOKS!  Lots and lots of books.  The Family Resource Center was very excited.  Book are needed all over the hospital, and the donations we have received from you guys will help so much.

I convinced Erik that I was too tired to cook dinner tonight so we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant.  We weren't there for 10 minutes before Jack and Nelson were deep in a standoff.  Oh, those two!

Tomorrow Ella has a basketball game that I am going to have to miss.  I'm sad, but looking very forward to spending the day with Lucy doing something other than going to another doctor.  We get to go look for princess dresses.  That's what we call a flower girl dress.  We are so honored to be a part of our favorite nurse's wedding.  I'll be sure to post pictures tomorrow!

  1. Lucy will be a lovely flower girl. Can't wait to see the dress you pick.

  2. Are you collecting new books? Or are gently used books ok?

  3. Kate, I just had to tell you about the sweetest thing that happened tonight. My friend and I do children's art parties and we went to set up for a 7 year old little girl named Hannah. We got ready to set up the table with our easel and told the Mother that she could use the table to put the presents on too. The mother replied that her daughter did not want presents this year, but wanted her friends to make donations to St, Jude's Hospital.

  4. As a paramedic, I get ALL over the West Tennessee area. I see 'Go Lucy Go' stickers and such EVERYWHERE!! They ALWAYS make me smile! Thank YOU for that cause there are MANY times I need to smile! (depending on the call we just finished!)

    Great work!!

  5. Kate, You are so wonderful, I realize that many people and nurses and Doctor have done alot for you all but for you to do so much for them is WONDERFUL!! You have so much already to do and deal with and for you to take such precious time and help/give back is amazing. I just LOVE Jack's face in that picture, HAHA, I would love to know what he is thinking. What a great honor for Lucy to be the flower girl, she is going to be able to show all her beauty. I can't wait for pictures. One more thing I am glad that you are not letting this THIEF weigh you down, they are not worth your time.

  6. Whew - when you said you were "done" I thought you were going to announce you were closing down the blog. I wish it could be kept more private or something so people cannot do such hateful, ugly junk. I, for one, am grateful to be able to pray for you all and will continue to - whether you ever post again or not.
