Work those strollers! 3 miles was good exercise.
Thanks again to everyone who donated. Our team raised close to $1000 which I think is outstanding!
Our last stop of the night was at Malarkey's. The most un-Irish pub imaginable. There was a Southern Rock band playing for cryin' out loud. No night out would be complete with out a self portrait. We held out the camera and CLICK. We looked at it and laughed so hard at the faces we chose to make.
Even though we were only out for 3 hours is was just what we needed.
We would truly appreciate your support. Please consider donating. Even $5 will make a huge difference. Last year we raised over $300! We'd love to beat that this time around. The March of Dimes makes it very easy to donate and it is tax deductible.

Mother's Day is coming sooner than you think. Stacey provides us with great card sketches each month. Here is my card for April, The card is split down the middle and orange scallops and circle with 'Thank you' open:
7:20 a.m.- Try to figure out where to leave an empty suitcase at O'Hare so I won't get pummeled by security. "Unattended bag left by gate F7- GET THE REDHEAD!!' Luckily the nice gentleman at Brookstone took care of it for me.
7:30 a.m.- $10 coffee from Starbucks never tasted so good. Oh yeah- I got the venti.
8:00 a.m. - Delayed in Chicago waiting for a crew change. I can't remember what time we left Chicago.
2:something- Arrive in Portland, Maine. It's rainy and cold. Just like WI. Welcome to the Eastern Time Zone.
3:00 p.m.- Arrive at the hotel.
3:05 p.m.- Change clothes and try to get pretty.
3:30 p.m.- Grab cab to head to downtown Portland for meeting.
4:00 p.m.- 8:30 p.m.- Meetings and dinner. Ok- Dinner was fantastic. Really the one bright spot of the trip. Fresh scallops. And this dark chocolate, caramel, peanut butter torte with cinnamon ice cream. Whoa! The way to my heart and positive attitude is through food!
9:00 p.m. - Back at the hotel- exhausted. Found myself watching the Bachelor thinking 'What are you doing woman- go to bed!
Tuesday - No April foolin'
6:00 a.m. - Up and ready to go.
