Little GLAMOUR ;)

I was so exited couple of months( STILL AM ) ago after receiving phone call from our Starlight children foundation Friend . She asked us if WE are interested attending Starlight Childrens foundation annual 'A Stellar Night gala :) HONESTLY, I had no idea what it is, but it sounded like something Regina and I would like so I said YES, OF COURSE :) We all had to write little paragraph how cancer has affected us, submit family picture , and now we are just waiting for March 27th to arrive :) I know we will have lots of fun Since at least one HSM star is there , and right now Regina is all about HSM :)
We start chemo on 18th, or 19th,( not sure when we get a bed in CHLA). I just hope that she feels good enough on 27th of march.
