Life Lately

Hey y'all! I wanted to post a little update on just life in general since I wasn't around last week. Today we are currently on our way to VCU for her first CT scan since diagnosis. They want to make sure there is no evidence of disease. On top of the CT scan, she has two chemo medications today which always seems to knock her out the next day. I was dreading today but now its here and we're just continuing to pray. She is still her spunky and hilarious self and she is inspiring y'all. Absolutely inspiring. 
Donuts before last week's treatment and a special visit from Miss Virginia

Last weekend Mom and I went on our annual little overnight getaway to the Miss VA Pageant and it was so relaxing and fun. We stayed at our favorite place the Virginian Hotel, had a wonderful dinner and then headed across town to the pageant. This year was
especially special since Andi had just visited with the former Miss VA a few weeks ago. The new Miss VA is from Richmond and she's pretty darn fabulous. She graduated from cum laude from Virginia Tech with degrees in biochemistry and system biology and she is now pursuing a doctor of pharmacy degree. She is the first to perform a science experiment as her talent and if you follow on me on IG then you saw how awesome that was! I'm looking forward to following along with her year as Miss Virginia because I'm sure it will be a great one!

After the pageant we met my sister, niece and aunt for mimosas and brunch and then accidentally stumbled into Loft and scored some awesome deals with their 40% off sale which I'll link below. After grabbing Starbucks we headed back home (only an hour away) to tell Andi all about the pageant and show her ALL the videos and pictures. Overall it was a great weekend! 

We've been busy with the renovation finishing some tile work and putting down trim so really...I promise to update next week! The wallpaper is supposed to be delivered today and the entryway light that was back-ordered until August actually arrives tomorrow. I'm so excited to share a sneak peek with y'all next week so stay tuned!
