Birthday, Chicago, & Kiawah Island!

Happy Friday everyone!

Time for me to pick up and go again!  I'm headed to Chicago for the weekend and then Tuesday morning, we are heading down to Charleston, SC for a family vacation with Doc's family!  And speaking of Doc, today is his 26th birthday....happy birthday honey!


Since I was out of town last week in Houston and before that I was in Miami the whole month of August....I just feel like I haven't had any time at home!  The house is a mess to say the least.  And it probably wont be getting any better since we're gone all next week, and then I'll be gone again in another 2 weeks for work!  I can't complain too much though....I mean come on, I get to go here...


 And spend it in my in laws beautiful condo right on Lake Michigan....and I get to go here....


My husband's family rented a beach house on Kiawah Island {they've been vacationing there since he was little}.  I've never been to the Charleston area before but I here its so beautiful! I'm definitely looking forward to getting some sun and relaxing...

What are you all doing this weekend?

Life...

Well, I've had quite the eventful last week. I had to unexpectedly fly to Houston last Thursday because my Dad ended up in the ICU.  He has stage 4 colon cancer and he's been receiving treatments in Houston at MD Anderson for the past 2 years.  My parents were there for another set of treatments he was getting, and he had some complications which led to him being put in the ICU for a multitude of things.  He was on a breathing machine and totally blind for 2 days, but somehow he came out of it and is doing much better now. He's still in the hospital but will be discharged sometime today!

He is seriously like a cat....he has 9 lives and is using each and every one of them. I flew out there to be with my mom through all of this and the rest of my siblings were on standby to fly out there at any moment. I'm so thankful that everything is okay for right now and that I got to be there with both my parents during this hard time.  Really makes you think about how short life can be....




Enjoy every moment you can with the people you care about and love.
