overjoyed with gratitude...and a little thrift store score!

I've been slacking on the blogging front because I've spent quite a few after-hours this week at Grace's school getting ready for the big kindergarten event - the Literary Ball...more on that later...it was super cute!...but this week in between several doctor's appointments, we received THE best news ever about my mom and this cancer journey. The special tests they were running on the tumor they removed at the beginning of January came back and she does NOT need chemo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an answered prayer!!!

She will still need radiation beginning mid-February and undergo her second {and hopefully last!} surgery this Tuesday, so please continue to keep her in your prayers, but we are overjoyed with gratitude at the blessing God has bestowed upon her in not needing chemo. When she told me, I just couldn't stop shaking and crying because we have been praying so hard for this and we know so many others have joined us in this prayer request - Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

-------------------------------
Work in progress
Grace is sooooo excited - she's very into mermaids lately...
I've had my trunk full of random stuff we have been needing to drop off at Goodwill since before Christmas and every week the pile just keeps growing and growing to the point I could barely fit groceries in the back of my SUV, so finally this week I was able to stop by - woo hoo!

My mom was with me so she stayed in the car with the littles while I ran inside really quick...I'm on the hunt for some old picture frames and vintage sheets for a project...I didn't find any...but in my 10 minute mad dash I found all of this:

Yup, that's a new Matilda Jane shirt in Grace's size for $3.99, misplaced and left with the picture frames...I think it was meant to be - ha ha!
I like all kinds of fun jewelry, so I was excited to find this fun beaded necklace too:
And the little pumpkin takes after me when it comes to accessorizing so she was happy I spotted these for her...
Hudson is into cards and puzzles and this brand new set was just too cute to pass up...
I also picked up a book for my mom. And my grand total: 8.65!

I've been having estate sales and antiques stores withdrawals lately and this was just what I needed - hahahahahaha. Yes, I'm just as likely to shop boutique and premium labels as bargain racks, I like to mix it up. But I've never been much of a Goodwill shopper...maybe I need to add it to the rotation?!?

Happy Saturday...off to a birthday party!
And still on Cloud 9 for my mom!!!!
Praise the Lord!

What a blessing for your family and your mother Jessica!!!! I am over the moon happy. I wrote a comment on one of the posts but it was giving me trouble and never went through. Been keeping her in my thoughts and prayers.

I pray that you continue to receive good news as your mom wins her battle against cancer. My mother in law has had a 3 year battle that has come to a victorious end. God willing it won't return. Even with good news, though, I know it is still very difficult. Stay strong!
