I know that I have been MIA lately... its been a wild week! I have been in Dallas all week at a meeting and I got MISERABLY sick while I was there. I flew there on Monday morning and was feeling feverish by Monday night. I laid in bed with a rag on my head knowing what was to come... Sure enough I woke up with the worst sore throat I have had since my tonsillectomy. I pulled it together and made it to the meeting on Tuesday. Tuesday night I felt worse and worse. Come to find out, I had strep throat and flew home early (yesterday). I have always heard that there is nothing worse than being sick when you're away from home and let me tell you... that's so true! I am so thankful to be home and be in my bed!
Here are some pics from Mother's Day and from Brita's Medical School graduation. My girlfriends and I were all able to go watch Brita graduate from Medical School. It was so wonderful to be able to be there for her as they announced... "Dr. Brita Sward Deacon." it brought tears to my eyes because I know how hard she has worked for this, and will continue to work. She graduated with honors among the top members of her class and will become an Opthamologist. Way to go Brita, I am so proud to call you my friend!! While we were all together we discussed how funny it is that we are best friends but have totally different careers... Brita is a doctor. I am a drug rep. Anna is a nanny. Effie is a teacher. Barrett and Spears are speech pathologists. Meredith is a meteorologist. Steph is an accountant. Now all we need is a lawyer and I think we would have it covered. :)
On Mother's Day I made dinner with for the whole family and a special treat for dessert. I made the mothers a jar that contained the ingredients for the Five Layer Bars that I made. They were a hit! I will post the recipe later when I feel 100%... think it's time for another nap.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
