On this day last year- this is what I woke up to
Last year- I was 6 days pregnant. Pregnant, you say?
This year-I have a 3 month, 2 week, and 5 days old baby boy.
Last year- these were some of my accessories
(my sister and my boa)
(my super fab diaper bag and many, many, many "burp" cloths--I don't know if I'd call what Everett does into those things 'burping.' Just sayin')
Last year--I went out to a Japanese restaurant in Mexico and had a glass of wine
This year--I'm going to Soul Shine for pizza and a beer (Why Soul Shine you ask? It's quiet enough to not be annoying but loud enough that noone notices if my son loses it in the middle of dinner!)
Last year--my Saints ended the season 8-8
(and btw--though I'll always be a "Bless you Boys Believer", if you'd have shown me this picture last year, I'd have asked, "Is that a smaller headed Peyton Manning?" or, perhaps, "Why did Tom Brady let Drew hold his trophy?" But NO--we spanked both of those future Hall of Famers. WHAT?)
Last year--my Mom had just had her surgery to remove the initial tumor and was about to start chemo at MD Anderson. Lindsay and I alternated flying to Houston (to give Bert a break) almost every other weekend for about 2 months. She was 2 months into her one year life expectancy.
This year--my Mom is meeting with a thoracic surgeon at Vanderbilt today exploring the possibility of removing the final spots left in her lungs. If possible, she won't even have to be on chemo until they grow back. It's a long shot but one that we'll take!
(Sorry, Mom, I know you don't like this pic but I do and TODAY, it's all about me!)

I guess things haven't changed too much.
