*What's that old saying???... I am SICKER than a dog* :(:(:(

Hi all.....

Oh boy... wow! I am sick! Like no one in my family better touch this keyboard until I have cleaned it with anti-bacterial wipes kinda sick! :(  Yesterday, I woke up, feeling so-so....went to do a Holiday Boutique with my friend Krista (and it was COLD for us! lol!)...and as the day wore on...I started feeling more run down....:(

Here are the photos from me and Krista's booth!! :):):):):):):):):)

Then....for those that don't know...I have been in pain (a lot of pain!) for quite awhile now... so, I have gone to doctor after doctor and they see NOTHING wrong with me and just send me big bills to pay so, yesterday after the Holiday Boutique.. Brian took me to a chiropractor... she asked a bunch-o-questions, and seems hopeful at getting to the bottom of my pain...and this morning I have to go get some x-rays done in her other office... so let's hope she can help me :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)):):):):):):)

Then after that...I was beyond HONORED to meet the BEAUTIFUL Laura Ingalls-Gunn at another evening craft fair in central Phoenix!! If you have followed me for awhile, you know how much this woman has inspired me... and I have been wanting to meet her forever! She is just as beautiful and gracious as I knew she would be!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  I was there meeting her, because she makes crafts too...and I had bought something from her to give to the Mom's for Christmas (and I know both Mom's read my NOPE! Can't show you what I bought! lol!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

*Brookie, Laura and I* :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And the kids at the same boutique! Adam scored a *vintage* (can't believe I am calling it that...since its ONLY from the 1990's! LOL) Star Wars Lego set in one of the shops there! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)):):):):):):)

Ohhhhhhhh and on Thursday...Aunt Pat came in for a one day visit.... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

There was some bongo playing! :)

A yawning doggy! :)

A Brian, an Aunt Pat and an Adam! :)

Gifts from Aunt Pat! :)

There was dancing to "Freak the Freak Out" from one of Brookie's FAVE shows..."VicTORIous" :)

 There was a family photo! :)

  1. Good morning! Sorry you are sick--FEEL BETTER!!! sending lots and lots of get well vibes... :-)

  2. am hopeful that the chiro can figure this out for you. she sounds like she's got some ideas which is good. i'm thinking being out in the cold didn't help - i don't care what they say about the cold not causing you to get sick - it surely doesn't make you better!

  3. Hoping that you get better soon :) and praying that the chiro figures out what is causing your pains because I know what it's like to live with constant pain and being told by doctors over and over again that they don't know what is causing the pain!!!
    Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to meeting Laura, to wonderful family time and to happy mail!!!
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!!

  4. WOW Julie,
    Your booth looks fabulous and meeting was a great day!
    Sorry you are feeling so crummy, although I must say that it does not show and you are still like wonderwomen to me...take care and don't overdo it...try and get some purposeful sleep....we gotta keep you healthy for Christmas!!
    Happy Weekend Sweetie xOxO Nerina

  5. I hope you feel better soooooooooooooooooooooon! LOVE the photos!!!! And your card is adorable!
    Have a great weekend and GET BETTER!!!!!

  6. Hi, Julie! :) I've finally found out how to enter my blogger account again after being away password was forgotten ;) Sad to hear about you being sick, hope the chiropractor can help - they often do when doctors come to short. Here all is well - busy and not scrapping, but well. Have a wonderful weekend *hugs*

  7. Hey Julie... now I'm worried... Rest well please...hopefully you'll get some answer...take it easy alright!...

  8. So sorry to hear that you are sick. :-(. Hope you feel better soon and I hope the chiro can help you, too!

  9. Hey Girlie....I am sorry you are feeling blah- maybe the chiro will get to the bottom of it once and for all. Does your chiro do acupuncture? When I feel like that, I go straight to my chiro and get fixed up, and I'll be damned, it's usually a better result than the MD!!!! Love all your pics!!!!!! xOxO

  10. Hope you feel better soon! Love the photos!

  11. I so hope that you get to feeling better!! I dread it when I start getting that not-so-good feeling!!
