Friday was a big day! For starters it was Jodi's birthday but it was also our Relay for Life event. It was in Pendleton and I got there around 5ish and Jodi and I attended the survivors dinner before Relay started. It was pretty yummy! Then it was time to walk! I walked in the Survivors and Caregivers lap with my family (Jodi and my Mema are survivors and my parents were the caregivers and I guess I can say I was a caregiver since they didn't have organ donors as an option)

Once the first lap was over, we had a surprise birthday party at our tent for Jodi. By the end of the night, Jodi was sang to over the loud speaker, got balloons and cards from people she didn't even know!
My favorite part of the even was of course the Luminary ceremony because Jodi was asked to speak! She did a great job and of course I teared up just a little bit :)
Jodi and I left around 11:30 so we could get some sleep (but didn't really happen..she got about an hour and I may have gotten 2...not enough for a pregnant girl or post transplant girl that's for sure!) We set our alarms and made it back to the event by 5:30ish so we could be there for the closing ceremony and pack up our area. Over all it was a great event and Birthday for Jodi but it really wore us out! :)
What seems like a day later, (but was only a few ours later) Jodi and went downtown Clemson to do a little shopping and then met up with Heather and the Esso for lunch. It was so yummy and it was even better to see my Heth two days in a row! :)
After lunch, I left Clemson and went straight to Lake Greenwood. I knew if I went by my house first, I wouldn't make it to the lake. It was a nice relaxing afternoon with my sweet nephews! I think I was asleep by 9 Saturday night and woke up at 7 on Sunday! It was nice to sleep.
Yesterday, Wes and I hung out with his family at the lake all day again. I love this time of year!! Look how cute my little guy Matthew is..he was our driver :)
Overall it was a great weekend but I still need to catch up on a little sleep! :) Hope everyone has a great Monday!!
