My favorite Easter basket ever! Anne Heaton, a week or two old in 2000.

So how was everyone's Easter Sunday? Earlier this year, my sister and brother-in-law invited all of us to come to DC for Easter, an offer that I hated to turn down. In hindsight, I am glad that I ended up staying here since I was feeling sick and had been traveling for work for two weeks straight.

Therefore, thanks to that exhaustion, I became quite a little old lady this weekend. As in, reading in bed at 9:30 on Saturday, lights out and asleep by 10:15. But I also had been up since 6 without a nap (and had run 9.5 miles, thankyouverymuch) so I didn't feel too guilty about being a grandma.

Because my family was in DC, my sweet friend Meghan invited me to spend the afternoon with her family. We had delicious food and especially amazing brownies... ha. Guess who brought those?

And lastly, speaking of sweet friends: I met my fundraising goal. More accurately, you guys met my goal. People on my team have asked me how I was able to do my fundraising without writing letters, having a bunch of benefits and events, etc. I know you guys didn't sign up to be my primary audience for the campaign. But your support, generosity, encouraging words and e-mails and overall interest in my goal means so much to me. More than half of the money raised came from people that read this blog, and to those people - thank you, thank you, thank you.

So I am happy to announce that I am removing the "donate now" button on the left, but if you want to still visit my campaign page, just click here.


  1. Yay, Lindsay! I am so proud!

    We missed you this weekend - wish you could have been here.

  2. Dude! No way! I was in bed by 10 on Saturday too. It was liberating and amazing.


Oh goody!
