Tu Nidito would celebrate five Remarkable Moms on Saturday, May 10th.
As you may know, I was honored to be part of this remarkable group.
We celebrated family on Friday night at Frog and Firkin....
Saturday was a virtually calm day....the men were off to the car show at the U of AZ mall, Kiki was working, and Shotzie was there to support me and keep me "cool."
I want to thank Gadabout SalonSpas for the complimentary shampoo and styling I received that afternoon, and to my dear friend Tammy, who provided her amazing talents so my hair would be perfect!
Thank you, sweet Shotzie, for using your artistic talents and fabulous MAC products to transform this 66 year old face....I felt like a prom queen!
At 5:00 we were off to the party....
|Erik, me, Ron|
The RM's (Remarkable Moms) were treated to a private champagne toast, where we received our beautiful pink satin sashes and orchid corsage...
|Beautiful Donna, my sponsor|
Following the toast, we joined our family, friends, and celebrators at the Silent Auction. We were treated to live music, hors' d'oeuvres, and drinks.

I had no previous notion of what they said in their interview. The video was amazing and the interviews were peppered with a montage of still photos from the past 44 years of my life with Ron, and our beautiful daughters.....

My heart is full to overflowing with love, joy, and gratitude to all of you who have supported me and, most importantly, Tu Nidito. The difference your support will make in the lives of children and families who suffer loss is immeasurable.
This event would not be possible without everyone at Tu Nidito and all who support this amazing organization.
I would like to personally offer a very special thanks to my blessed family, Rich and Pat, Erik, Ann, and Kate, Sandra, Nancy and Mike and daughters, Mark and Debbie, Chip and Rachelle, Aunt Jeanne, Debbie and Rick, Bob and Kip, Roberta and Pat, Shann and Brian, Mary and Pedro, The Window Depot, Barb and Jim Markert, Donna and Mike, Casino del Sol, Gadabout SalonSpas, Kat, Tammy, Laurie and Lisa Designs, Elements, Affinity Financial, and Salpointe Catholic High School. I LOVE YOU!!!
A belated Happy Mother's Day to all of you, my beautiful friends and family. I'll follow up next week with our Mothers Day shenanigans.
Have a blessed week ~ you are in my heart!
