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.

happy anniversary to us!

On May 6th, Hunky Hubby and I celebrated 3 years of marriage. Go us! In an effort to keep things simple and inexpensive, we opted for a small staycation. We took two days off work (Mon-Tues) and enjoyed a leisurely at-home four-day weekend. We did some cleaning and organizing around the house and in the baby's room, but also made time for leisurely activities like napping, sleeping in, watching movies, eating out, and even a little wandering around REI (our annual dividend, plus a 20% off coupon, enabled us to purchase a new travel/camping barbeque!). It was a splendid weekend ... which is nice, since it will probably be our last one kid-free for quite some time.

Using as many coupons and gift cards as we could, we actually kept the cost of our staycation down to a tank of gas and some snacks for the movie theater (we saw Star Trek at 2:10 on Tuesday afternoon ... soooooo the way to do a new release. There were only about 10 people in the whole theater!). So, our big splurge? Double scoop waffle cones at the ice cream parlor on Main Street in Disneyland. Mmmmmmm, well worth the expense. Caleb enjoyed butter pecan and another non-chocolatey ice cream, while I had mint 'n chip with chocolate chip. DE-licious.

Me in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle ... and 36+ weeks pregnant. (I'm starting to feel as big as Sleeping Beauty's Castle.)

Happy Anniversary! Aren't we cute?

Happy Anniversary! What a fun "trip". Sometimes those are the best kind of vacations. By the way you really look great for 36 weeks!
Can't wait to see that little bundle soon! =0)

Happy Anniversary!!! Heidi, you look so great! I love the idea of a staycation. When do we get to see pics of the baby's nursery? I'm sure it's going to be adorable.
