My First Fabulous Friday of 2016

I totally admit I've been a blogging slacker, especially when it comes to Fabulous Friday and I'm not going to promise anything going forward, just saying.
1.  Friday and Sunday I spent time with my aunt, uncle and cousins.  I can't believe how big their kids have gotten in just a few months since I've been out of town.  We played a fun game which involved some of these gems!
2.  I've worked-out every day since I've been back to Phoenix except for the few post chemo days.  I even worked-out before having chemo last week.  I feel so much better when I work-out.  I have a goal to meet my 10,000 steps every day.  My Christmas gift fitbit is totally motivating.  If I don't have my 10,000 steps in at night I walk until I get them.
3.  I admit I've done a little shopping this week at Talbots.  I bought another dress for the Colleens Dream Gala, even though I already have 2.  I really like this one the best.  You'll just have to wait for February to see it.
4.  Speaking of Colleens Dream, I had lunch with Colleens daughters on Wednesday.  These ladies are awesome and I'm so grateful for all they do for Ovarian Cancer research.  I'm excited for the gala too.
5.  I bought some new running shoes this week which are teal and bright yellow.  I love new running shoes.  They make me want to work out more.
6.  Yesterday I met up with my hiking buddies.  We haven't hiked together since May.  I've missed them and love them each so much.  Unfortunately one of them moved to Kansas City, but she came to town yesterday.  We really talked more than we hiked, which was just fine, because we had a beautiful view the entire time and had a lot to catch up on.  Isn't this the coolest hole in the rock?
7.  I'm going to Portland today to attend an athletes for cancer camp.  I'm excited to meet others my age who have experienced what I have and to learn what they have prepared to teach me which will make me a better post cancer person.  We will also do yoga and hike.  Sunday I'm going from Portland to Spokane to visit my sister Tristen and her girls for the week as her husband will be out of town (and she doesn't like to be home alone).  I'm so excited to see them.
8.  I've been talking with a group called Dributts about going to Haiti the end of February.  I'll find out more information this afternoon, but I plan on going.  They take special diapers there and teach hygiene to young mothers so that they can prevent diseases like cholera and dysentery.
