Not Quite Wordless Wednesday: One Ticket To Farhampton, Please.

So the cat's out of the bag and I can FINALLY talk about it!!!!! 
As many of you already know, my niece Cristin Milioti was cast as the "MOTHER" in "How I Met Your Mother!" 
The season finale (where she made her first appearance,) aired on Monday May 13, during Diabetes Blog Week - which I was participating in full throttle - But I did tweet and post about it on my Facebook page - Like, A LOT - As did many of you!
Cut to last week, which was all about gathering info re: diabetes donations from D companies for PWDs (people with diabetes) in Oklahoma effected by the tornado & in need of diabetes supplies, and dealing with nerve tests jacking up both hands & wrists in regards to a nasty ass case of carpel tunnel!
So yeah, I'm just getting around to "officially" posting about it now. 

I am beyond thrilled and proud of my girl! 
I've had the amazing joy of seeing her in all of her performances since she was little, and then watched over the years as the rest of the world discovered what Cristin's family has known all along - SHE'S MAGNIFICENT.

Speaking of Joy, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fact that I've had the opportunity to share Cristin's most recent career milestones  with the Diabetes Online Community these past 5 years. 
And being able to share wonderful news about someone I love so much and am so incredibly proud of, with a community I love so much & so am incredibly proud of, was and IS indeed the fantastical gift that keeps on giving!
