merry merry mixers!

friend & stylist lindsey foley is on the committee of a phenomenal local charity, merry mixers, whose cause hits very close to home.

 i get choked up just thinking about the 22 days my C spent in the NICU.  i'm ashamed to admit, the hour long commute to see my little C didn't happen every day as I had the other peanut at home.   looking back, this just breaks my heart, as i can't imagine a day without "a charlotte hug" {unless i'm on ack drinking cocktails.  obvs}
point being, i knew she was in excellent hands but the opportunity for her to receive the care she needed at our local hospital would have been welcomed.

 this is the first pic ever taken with me holding both my babes together.  they were over two weeks old.  {we brought P in for a field trip}

this is getting heavy for a friday! {shouldn't i be posting pics of puppies and shiz?} 
anyhoot, the time in the NICU was a blip on the radar and a small price to pay for my two healthy and happy girls. 

 this pic was taken yesterday in grandpa's yard.  {round 245 of ring around the rosie.}

 i feel so indebted to the nurses and doctors that cared for my sweet C when I couldn't provide what she needed and I'm SO excited to support merry mixers!

"Sixty two years ago, a group of local women started the Merry Mixers, Friends of the North Shore Children’s Hospital, a non-profit organization designed with one sole purpose: to support and raise funds for this hospital that has cared for our children for the past 100 years. While the faces have changed over time, our goal remains steadfast. Funds raised by the Merry Mixers go directly to patient care services and the purchasing of critical medical equipment, enabling the Doctors and Nurses to provide first-class care to all patients.
The Merry Mixers has donated over $650,000 in just the last twenty years…something we are extremely proud of!  This year, the Mixers are embarking on their most exciting and challenging fundraising endeavor to date.  We are setting out to raise $200,000 in three years.  These funds will be utilized for the finishing touches after the expansion and renovation of the Special Care Nursery and for updates to the inpatient Pediatric Unit.
The project will include doubling the size of the Special Care Nursery to accommodate 12 high-risk infants, and their families.  The new floor plan includes space for mothers to sleep next to their babies, a family waiting room, a private bathroom and shower.  In addition, the nursery will include technological enhancements to ensure the highest level of care."

they are having a big event next weekend and i'm so happy to join in the fun this year!  they have amaze auction items and local band, better than nothing {how great is that name?}
