My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

the bacheloretty party

On Saturday night the girls came together and celebrated Amy's upcoming nuptials with a bachelorette party! We started with dinner at my place, then we did that oh-so-common bachelorette activity ... bowling! And then we came back to my place for dessert, some champagne and a few presents. It was a lovely evening and more than anything I hope Amy felt honored and celebrated. We can now say the wedding is THIS WEEK! So exciting. Here's a few pics from the evening.

The bride-to-be.

Joy, Amy, Molly and Amber, enjoying a nice dinner on the patio.

Rachel, Lauren, Darcy and Amy, enjoying a nice dinner inside.

Rachel, enjoying a nice dinner on the stairs (our place is a little short on seating sometimes).

Amy, Rachel, Amy and Heidi ... in the car on our way to the bowling alley.

Darcy, Lauren, Rachel, Becka, Amy, Amy, Amber, Molly and Joy ... getting ready for a rousing round of bowling!

Rachel and baby Sophie, fine bowlers.

Rachel and Amy (not to be confused with the other Rachel and the other Amy).

Darcy and Lauren.

This deserves an explanation. For every strike or spare bowled by someone other than Amy, an item of clothing was pulled from a bag that Amy then had to put on ... and wear the rest of the evening (at the bowling alley anyway). It was amazing how motivated people were to bowl strikes! This is Amy after only about 2 frames into the game.

Amy putting the last item of clothing on Amy ... the bag all the other clothes came in.

And here she is! Our illustrious bride, finally wearing everything in the bag ... by the 5th frame! Who knew we'd have such motivated bowlers!

The bride and her matron of honor. I feel underdressed.

Back at the house Amy got to open a few presents. The goal was to bring a favorite beauty product that you think Amy might also enjoy. Here she is with Burt's Bees colored chapstick-type stuff.

She seems pretty excited about this one. Apparently its so nice my Uncle Bob even uses it to shave.

Six days until the wedding!!
