September All In One Post

September came and went so quickly.  I'm actually glad that it is now October and the heat of the Summer can now leave us for a while.  I should be like my friend Janelle and have my house all decked out in Fall, even when it is 100 degree's.  Just going into her house makes me feel like fall is here.  Janelle came with me to my first chemo treatment here in Phoenix and we've had dinner with her and Matt.  These two and their cute twins are such fun to hang out with.

When I was in SLC Labor Day weekend I had the best time visiting with my friends from Grad School.  They came over to Tenielle's and we had homemade Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream that Dad made.  It was delicious.  I love catching up with these dear friends of mine and swapping medical stories.  It's hard to believe that we are going into our 12th year of practice.
When I flew home to Phoenix and went immediately to my Aunt Leslie's to have dinner with family.  I love spending time with them.  She gave me the sweetest teal package from the young women in her ward.  What sweet girls.  I loved every think in the box, especially the uplifting quotes that I have my on my refrigerator.

There is a Circle K on every corner here.  I stopped off at one a few days after coming back to Phoenix, because I couldn't find a Sonic.  I'm afraid I"m now addicted.  You can get a huge coke zero, add in your vitamin c and favorite flavor (mine is Vanilla) and they have the delicious crushed ice that I love.  I missed being able to get a fountain drink when I was in MVY as there are no places like Circle K or Sonic on MVY. 

I've spent lots of time holding these cute twins, visiting with my cousins and enjoying the time my mom has been here.
 Kate had her first pedicure.  Baby toes are so cute.  I've always joked with my sisters that I should have been a foot model.

We had the most beautiful sunset and rainstorm the night mom flew in.  I captured it on my way to pick her up a few weeks ago.
September is OVC awareness month.  There was a day that a spa/salon had a day that celebrated OVC survivors by giving us goody bags and spoiling us with spa treatments.  It was such a fun day.  I had my hair done and got a massage.  It was fun to meet other survivors.
Unfortunately I have to have chemo again tomorrow and I'm not looking forward to it.  Let's hope for a fantastic October, even amongst the chemo.


  1. Everyone in our family loves being with you, how thankful we all are that you decided to make Phoenix your home away from home!!

  2. Fun post! Now I miss my babies! Cute hair, glad you were pampered!
