    Lunch was wonderful...lots of smiles, laughs and hugs.  Seeng the traveling pants and watching Chrissy sign them was very powerful.  I was unable to go to the missions and Alamo with the crew and can not wait to hear what adventures were had.

    It was simply magnificent to meet all of you- it was short but well worth the drive in from Houston. We will most definitely meet up again:)

    Had a great time yesterday and can't believe we all just met because it seems we have known each other our entire lives.  So there are some great things that come out of having BC and yesterday just confirmed how blessed I am to have gotten to know everyone.  Here is a pic of the Gang that made it to SA

    Jo, Gina, Annette, Chrissy, Timothea, Janna, Sherry and Timothea's kids.

    I tried to get the photo smalled and it just would not get there.

    We missed all the rest of you Texas Gals that did not get to make it, but we will have another get together.

    I enjoyed meeting everyone and it was so funny cuz when the gal from the paper called me she made a comment about meeting people whom i had never met before and didnt know- i was like No i KNOW these people, i've heard about their ups and downs fears and joys that they have in their lives- i know these people but just finally got a chance to meet them. I cant wait to read the artical! She said sometime this week it would appear, i will post the link as soon as i read it (if no one beats me to it)

    And just a side note- i was a little nervous meeting y'all because i am a few years younger than everyone- but it wasnt a problem at all! We had so much to talk about and not even cancer related stuff too! Oh and my kids were OUT on the way home! Later i will post a pic of my son in his car seat- he slept the 3 hour trip home (i detoured to my dads to pick up some stuff i left over there)

    AWESOME TIME GUYS I CAN NOT WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!!!!!

    ps Gina- i will NEVER be able to look at your handle without cracking up LOL ;)

    I don't mind being comic relief!  and you're not quite young enough to be my daughter, but admittedly close I must say!  It was a joy.  When you add to your FB I'll send you the pics of your kids I took.  I think I capture their personalities on film!  Had a great time meeting you too.  Keep educating the doctors please, no one is too young for breast cancer.

    Timothea it was so great to meet you at last.  And I have to say your kiddo's are adorable.  I'll take them any time.  And yes my kids are older than you but when we were all together Saturnday we have so much in common that age did not seem to matter to any of us.  We are all BC survivors traveling on our journey. I am glad to have all of you on my journey with me.

    Timothea - I was such a pleasure meeting you - I could be your mother - I am old enough- Sheesh!  Shame on us - we are closer than we think - we need to get together more often.  We could meet in Falfurrias.  Your kids are adorable - your son is going to break someone's heart when he grows up.

    Gina - We all own you a big thank you for being our tour guide and for taking care of Chrissy.

    I'm so glad you all had fun and it is so nice to actually meet each other and connect a warm body with the words of wit and wisdom we see on line.  DFW girls - we need to set up a meet and greet, too!

    Timothea - Falfurrias is straight south of you on 281 - so no turns.  You have to drive right through it if you ever come to the valley.  I can check it out but I do believe you are less than an hour so it would be an easy trip.

    I just found this group. I thought we had a bunch of ladies from Texas, we are after all a big state!

    I live in Forney which is about 27 miles east of Downtown Dallas. Currently undergoing treatment at Baylor and doing great! Love to see and hear from all you Texas gals and hope all are doing well!

    Annettek - if you get into the DFW area let us know, would love a get together with everyone in this area.

    by the by, I switch my user name from mjbmiller to walker2222 as that was my number in the Race for the Cure this weekend. 

    Forgot the Gaylord would be a good location.

    DFW girls and anyone who wants to travel here:

    What about Saturday, November 12th, to get together?  Would a lunch gathering work?  I was thinking Addison/Belt Line/TW as it is somewhat central?  Or we could go west and do the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine?  The previous get together was in San Antonio last month.  Did anyone do the Komen walk last Saturday?  I wanted to walk with Laidley's Ladies, but had too many family commitments.

    Gaylord sounds fine to me.



    I did the race and my # was 2222 hence the picture and name change.

    I am making it a point to wander to more forums here. I'm in Georgetown about 25 miles north of Austin. I'm at a point where I would love to meetup with some folks.

    I think a DFW get together would be fun.  I am pretty sure Nov.12 would work for me.  Let me know where and I will be there with bells on, well maybe not with bell, but you get the idea.

    Chickadee~ my daughter is rowing in a Regatta on October 29th in Austin.  Not sure exactly where, but if you feel like spending the morning in a lawn chair on the banks of the river chatting, let me know.

    Dallas ladies, I would travel to you all in heartbeat!  I have a commitment on November 12th, but when you have another one, I'm in!

    Sagina,, would love to meet up. Right now I'm working through back problems that make walking very far or without a walker a huge challenge. I'll take a rain check on the riverside though I know it will be lovely.
