A Long Overdue Update and Some Shameless Promoting ;)

It has been exactly one month since I last wrote and I have a lot of updates to make.  Justin and I moved into our new place in downtown Reno.  It is tiny and perfect for me to clean and keep up with.  We are also in the same complex and my in-laws so I have been spending evenings with them when Justin is working late.  I started my new antibiotic treatment and it is definitely messing with my body, but I think it means the medicine is stirring up and killing the bugs inside of me!   My port is still painful, but very manageable, especially if I put an icepack on it at night.  I am really happy with it and am adapting to dressing and showering with the new line.

On the list of the most exciting think in my life: I have Diego back! He is back to his normal behaviors of sleeping all day when I sleep all day and making me laugh when he greets me at the door with his stuffed alligator. We have gone for multiple walks to the river and as the weather keeps improving I am sure we will be out there almost every day!  I am LOVING having my Shmago back in my life. Seriously he is so much fun. ;)

Also, I found a new small group and am loving all of the ladies there.  In my past groups, I have have commonalities with the ladies because we all worked in health care and some were newlyweds.  In my new group I am a little bit of an outcast because most of these ladies are mommies! But hopefully I won't be an outcast forever because I am hoping to get the okay from my doctor when I am done with treatment (I am trying to think positive thoughts and be goal oriented) so we can have a baby too. The cool thing about being in a group with all these moms is I get to see them and their kiddos each week and hear from other married women about life, relationships and God.

In other news, I have some promoting I need to do for one of my best friends in the whole wide world.  Harmony, is an extremely talented photographer and she is doing a free package giveaway valued at $650.  She recently shot a promo video to show potential clients who she is and what she's about.  She needed some models for the day so Justin, Diego and I stepped in and starred in her video.  Click the link below to watch the video (notice that Jeff is wearing my Lyme awareness bracelet AND I showered and put on make-up and real clothes not yoga pants!) and then go to her blog so you can enter to win this fantastic giveaway. Seriously, if you have not taken a family picture in the last year or you are pregnant or in a long term relationship, or you' EVERYONE needs pictures done and Harmony will put you at ease while she shoots you (with her camera).  Her work is phenomenal, and I'm not just saying that because she let me star in her video (Because I know you were wondering, yes, I'm available for autographs), seriously she has a God-given eye for photography and she's so bubbly and fun!

Watch Harmony's promo video & read her blog to find out exactly how to enter for her giveaway (you can enter once each week):
