22nd Celebration

July 8, 2011

One good way to celebrate a dia-birthday

The good thing about getting diagnosed on July 4 is that there is always something fun to do and people are always willing to celebrate with you.  On Saturday I went to my friend’s house for a cookout. Delicious food, amazing people and fun times: what better way to start off a celebratory weekend?  On Saturday Mom and I played tennis in the morning.  She kicked my butt!  But diabetes did not.  We then headed up to the lake for a day of fun in the sun.  The sun wasn’t there, but the family and friends were, and the good times and fireworks.  And of course a little water skiing too.  I learned how to water ski at a friend’s party on the way home from Camp Carefree as a kid, so pretty fitting that it was included in my weekend.  And of course, it is one of my favorite things.  On Sunday, Mom and I rode our bikes to the small town parade between 5-10 miles away.  We watched the parade: tractors, horses, water guns and all other sorts of cute goings-on in a small town parade.  After getting back, we went over to my grandparent’s to see some out-of-town family stopping in for a few days.  After enjoying a delicious BBQ, we went home and over to the neighbor’s to relax pool-side.  And what a great weekend it was.

    Happy diaversary, Briley!!! So glad to hear about your fun times and that diabetes didn’t get in the way or bring them down! Thanks for sharing, and here’s to hoping for many many more awesome D-anniversaries where the D takes a backseat to life and good times! (oh, by the way: UNICORN!)

I'd love to hear what you think about my blog thoughts!
