History in the Making!

I don't know about all of you, but I definitely was excited to see 'some' of the Royal Wedding this morning...moreso because I wanted to see Kate's DRESS!!!  All the news reports and fashionista's all deemed that she would wear something non-traditional...sleek, I had this image in my head and was semi-disappointed when I saw her dress...but then as I saw her in it more and more, I LOVED it.  Afterall, this is no ordinary this dress is actually perfect and appropriate for such an's vintage and elegant...she looks gorgeous!!

Happy Birthday in Heaven

Today was my dad's birthday...he would have been 78!  We all went to his grave, then back to my mom's...and just supported each other!  Today also marks 9 weeks since his death, so at 5:10pm, we all toasted to my dad!  Words cannot describe the loss we are feeling w/o him...but we truly believe he is watching down on us!!!

Easter, 2011

A beautiful mass at St. Anthony's, then a visit to my dad's grave, followed by a wonderful family dinner at my mom's.  This was a very difficult day for everyone...first Easter w/o my dad...but I know he was looking down on us and was there with us!
waiting to go downstairs...

Many of you know, my sister Patty is going thru chemo...she has 2 more treatments to go...but she is completely bald.  I told her back in Dec. I'd chop my hair too, just for her!!  So, today I went and took the plunge...I showed my hairdressed the exact hairstyle I wanted...and walked out with the EXACT opposite...NOT HAPPY about it at all!  I don't understand how she thinks it's even remotely the same cut?!  Oh well, it's not that its so short that bothers's this STYLE...hate this style...just not, I will prob be getting it cut yet again very soon...but at a different hair place!!!  I was so ready for a hair cut can do wonders for the email, new FB...embracing this CHANGE!!!

I wanted this
but got something like this (but much, much shorter) instead....

Calling all angels....

We need some extra special prayers for my sister, Patty, who is battling cancer...with 2 chemo treatments left, she has to stop full chemo cocktail, due to complications to her liver...hoping the last 4 treatments were effective enough to kick this cancer...just really need alot of prayers on so many levels!  Here is her Caringbridge page if you'd like to keep up with her journals...

While Jim was away at the Men of Malvern Retreat, I decided to have a Women of Mulvena Retreat...(all women except Joey!)  It was a nice (low-key) gathering of family and friends enjoying some good food and good company and LOTS of overnighters...:)
