Catching Up...Again

First of all, we only have 8 teams left for the golf tournament so if you're wanting to play, now is the time to sign-up :) https://brightlife.ticketbud.com/teeitupforcancer

If you don't play golf, don't forget that you can still sign up for the dinner & silent auction, we've got some really neat & one of a kind items up for auction this year that you won't want to miss out on! https://brightlife.ticketbud.com/teeitupforcancer

Finally, we're still in need of some sponsors for the tournament to help us cover the costs of putting it on. We like to go into tournament day in the black so every bit of the money made that day can go straight to research. https://brightlife.ticketbud.com/events/10521/sponsorship_purchases/new

I just realized that I never posted the link to Tim's interview on Fox Carolina. Diana Watson did an amazing job (as did Tim), it was so exciting to watch! http://vidcache.newsoverwireless.com/whns/pmd-2/WHNS-5450965.mp4

The BrightLife/iTOR house is almost finished and is absolutely incredible. I'm really wishing I could buy it & move in :). Mark your calendars for April 12-14, 19-21 & 26-28 to come tour the house (at 101 Treetops Court, Greer, SC), it's only $10 a ticket (all of the money is going to research) and you won't regret it! Here is a sneak peek at the Master Bathroom's shower, like I said, incredible. Goodwin Foust is incredibly detail oriented (to the point that all of the screws on the plates for the outlets & lights are facing up & down...seriously). It makes my OCD so happy...


So it's been awhile since we've posted and some interesting things have happened in that timeframe. For the first time in the six years we've been together Tim got me flowers. They were gorgeous but by the end of the day I was so congested & miserable. That's right, I finally get flowers & am allergic. Awesome. He's already taken that as a sign that he doesn't need to ever buy me flowers again :).



Later that night we went to Devereaux's for dinner with our friends Josh & John. The food was amazing, fit our dietary needs (for the most part) and we had a great time (& didn't have to cook for once!).


I figured out how to make a crustless quiche with soy milk (& real cheese which is not on the diet plan), it was...different.


We also got the neatest surprise. Tim's mom went to go get us a Valentine's gift from Palmetto Olive Oil, bc as we all know, I'm obsessed. She got to talking to one of the owners, Sandy Burn, and found out that she had been reading our blog. Sandy went above & beyond and put together a pretty basket of  a few different kinds of Olive Oils & Vinegars for us to try. We haven't found a single one that we haven't enjoyed but my heart still belongs to the Traditional Balsamic... :) They have generously offered to do a tasting at the showhome so all of you can try it as well.


Right before Tim started chemo again we went down to Columbia for the afternoon for the season home opener where they honored Coach Tanner & retired his jersey. We got there about 15 minutes too late for Tim to participate in the ceremony but they had a little section cordoned off for the baseball alum to watch the game and get to chat with one another. Tim had a great time seeing a lot of those guys again and the weather couldn't have been nicer.


Wednesday we got this nice little booklet about Zaltrap, the new drug we're trying with Tim. Hopefully this one works!


I mentioned that our friend Jessica came over with her daughter Emery to watch Tim while I went out and got his prescriptions filled. When I got back Emery had woken up from her nap and we gave her a Coconut Water popsicle while Jess & I tasted the oils & vinegars from Palmetto Olive Oil. Emery decided to taste some too and got REALLY into the Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar. She started by dipping her popsicle in it before she went all out and stole Jess's spoon to drink it straight. :)


On Friday at the end of Tim's chemo (the 22nd) he got lots of fluids and more anti-nausea meds that left him high as a kite but feeling MUCH better.



 Haley brought the kids by to eat pizza with Tim & Lillian took a second to cuddle up with Tim (he was in heaven :))


Last weekend we headed down to Charleston with 3 other couples from our neighborhood to attend the Charleston Wine Festival. We had the best time and the food was amazing (and absolutely none of it fit our dietary restrictions). It was really nice to just get away and relax for a few days.


Tim & I talked about it & in order for me to feel more at ease but still be able to be at work while he is on treatment we bought a baby camera that operates through our internet connection so I can access the feed through my phone or over the internet.


So far this is typically the sight that greets me when I sign in...next goal is to get him up & moving a bit more during chemo :).
