While we were all either throwing-up or laying under ten blankets shivering with fever, my house became a disaster area. It looked like an episode of Hoarders in my bedroom/bathroom. Seriously. I had sorted out all the laundry on my bathroom floor the night before I got sick. Then I didn't touch it for four days, but continued to add sheets, towels and such to the mess until my entire bathroom floor was covered. I am finally making progress though!
Toward the end of the weekend, as we were all starting to feel a little better, we proceeded on with our plan to walk in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night fundraising walk. We walked to support and honor two specific people: my mom (who is a 30 year survivor of Hodgkin's Lymphoma) and our friends' son, Brock (who is currently battling Leukemia). Thanks to so many generous friends and family, we personally raised over $500. Our team, "Brock Rocks", ended up raising over $5,000 to go toward cancer research! Woo hoo!
Here are some pics from our fun night:

Cotton Candy Girls: we took a risk with their freshly recovered stomachs, but they loved it!

I hope you all are all healthy and doing well!
