|Fried eggs anyone?|
It's hard to believe that in 12 days it will be exactly 1 year since my surgery, but more importantly... 1 year of being cancer free! And we have a fun celebration planned. Oh and for those that are new, I had a bilateral total mastectomy and sentinel node removal without reconstruction. In other words, I'm flat as board. More info in my Breast Cancer Survivor tab.
Before I go on, let me explain the pic above... and my humor for those who don't know me. We went to Portland in June to visit my boys (awesome visit!). There was a Goodwill store at the end of the street where we were staying. I love and shop in second hand stores. Anyway, I spotted pink and when I pulled the shirt off the rack (rack... that's funny!) I about doubled over with laughter! Ha ha ha... fried eggs on the front! Perfect!
There's more to this story. It just so happened that the next day, Saturday June 29th, while we were enjoying Portland weather, everyone back home in Arizona was dealing with a toasty 119 degrees that day! The hottest day I experienced was 122 back in 1990. Fun day - not. So I wore my pink shirt in honor of everyone frying eggs on the sidewalk that day and posted it on Facebook.
|Get your melons!|
Yes, I'll be getting back to my 1 year 'cancerversary' plans soon, but since I'm on the humor train...
True story. I got me a pair of nice melons on sale for .48c at Sprouts! Mark hasn't had melons in a long time so I figured I would give him a treat.

Okay now back to our big simple plans for our cancerversary trip. I say "our" because Mark has been by my side from day one of our close to 20 years together and has never ever flinched.
We are going to our Happy Place - Sedona that is. Yes, we call it our happy place as that is where we used to go when we needed a break from the craziness of life and to rejuvenate. In fact, we used to go there a couple times a year, then once a year and then crud/life happened. We haven't been there for the past couple years or so for a variety of reasons, not just because of breast cancer. So what better place to celebrate this first year of being cancer-free than beautiful, peaceful, and mesmerizing Sedona! Our Happy Place.
I'll save the rest of our plans for another post before we go as for now I need to get into the kitchen and uncook our dinner.
I can almost feel the happy vortex vibes now!
