Quick Update

Since I haven't posted in a long, long time I thought I would quickly give an update. Last week we were at my Grandparent's house in Bellinham, WA. We got to spend about 4 days there with my parents. It was good to see them again, but my grandma really wasn't feeling well while I was there. She has Parkinson's Disease and is in a nursing home and while we were there she wasn't able to swallow her medications. It was sad to see her struggling so much. It was hard to leave. After we got home on Sunday my mom said that they have started giving her medications through an iv and this is the photo that I received from my parents last night:

Grandma was actually feeling well enough to go to the mall with my parents and grandpa! Mom called me today and said that they also went to Old Country Buffet and grandma ate a ton. Grandma was even able to talk to me for about 10 minutes today and she told me that she had seen a beautiful Christmas sweatshirt on QVC and she really wanted it because she is just sick of the ones that she has been wearing for years. :) It was good to talk to her and see that she is feeling better. I will post more pictures from our trip soon.

Last night Karin, Melissa and I took a trip to Hobby Lobby in Mankato. Here is a fun picture:

Melissa had knee surgery a couple of weeks ago and she was happy to get out of the house for a couple of hours. We got a lot of good stuff!


  1. Oh wow, that is wonderful that your Grandma is feeling better! That is a scary disease, I'm glad the medication is helping!

  2. Is it a sign we're getting old when we are posting pictures of us pushing our friends in wheelchairs!?

  3. At least I'm not the one in the wheelchair! J/K. We had a good laugh at the large basket on the front.

  4. Hi! My comments on Etsy aren't working so this was the only way I could think of to contact you right now. :)
    Yippee! I got a treasury today and one of your pieces is featured in it. Hope that is okay! I am very new and didn't think to ask first! Just put up a few of my favorites.
    Here's the link:

  5. Hi Becca,

    just found your blog through Etsy - I found you on Etsy through a treasury! I'm also from Minnesota so it is fun to read through your blog and say "I've been there"!! I used to have relatives in Cannon Falls so I've been there many times.

    Fun blog, fun items on Etsy. Nice to meet you!
