viva la cure.

my mom was radiant tonight. baylor plano in conjunction with saks fifth avenue held "viva la cure," a fashion show featuring women who are battling or have battled cancer. there were a couple exceptions, but almost all of them were breast cancer patients.

my friend kayci works at baylor and asked if my mom wanted to be a part of the show. mom got to pick out two (amazing) outfits from saks and strut her stuff on the catwalk.

ellie had a great time watching gramie sue. she liked the music a lot.

afterward, greg and becky (scott's in-laws) treated all of us to dinner at california pizza kitchen. it was yum, and we found out ellie loves avacado!

i'm super glad kayci told us about the event.

and i'm so proud of mom. she's so strong and brave and beautiful, too.

ellie tries out the runway.

makin spit bubbles, her favorite thing.

(please forgive me, but these videos are sideways. just turn your laptop...or whatever. i don't have a video editor so i can't flip them. ugh.)

Wow, what an amazing opportunity for your Mom. I am so glad she is able to participate in events such as those...I believe anyone who goes through cancer has so much courage...I 've taken care of them and I have seen the effects...I put your Mom on a pedestal and applause her! She is a wonderful strong woman!
