Our Girls Rock….the flu…..Tutes!

Yes our girls rock430455_3410080301685_1560313049_33054972_515781493_n !!! Our girl had the most amazing experience in Tasmania and is now officially a Tasmanian Devil wrangler!! Her two weeks there were the best, hosted by the nicest people and sights she will talk about425748_3410030100430_1560313049_33054921_1617788397_n forever! Missing her for two weeks was the hard part for me, but her boyfriend and I became good texting buddies.


Our other girl…..she ran the LA Marathon on Sunday with a time of 4 hours 34 min.!!!!!! Isn’t that amazing or what?! She trained and trained for 6 months and boy did that training pay off. So proud of both of our girls for sure.

The flu…….UGH!!!!! This nasty bug took me down for about 10 days. I finally went to the doc and got some really strong medication and made the turn……I haven’t been down like that in ages. So for me no sewing, but I’m itching to get to something!!!
