Goals Are Dreams With Deadlines...

I'm so thrilled and excited to say I have now officially met and surpassed my fundraising goal for the upcoming Avon Walk for Breast Cancer!


In 2007, I raised funds in honor of a lady at my church that was battling breast cancer, and she has since lost her fight. I continue to participate in this cause because breast cancer does affect so many people and I want to make a difference for our future.

In May, we will be heading up north to participate in the DC walk, and if you'd like me to walk in honor of or in memory of someone, please e-mail me their name and I will write the name on my number, on my back for all to see.

Our team has raised more than $87,505.90 since we started in 2006 and we're just getting started!

Now, I've just got to get my body in the walking mode so I can walk, and walk, and walk and walk and walk. Thank you to everyone that made this happen! Maybe next week's trip to Disney will be a great way to start! Now if I could just find the right shoes...but that's another post...

    That is fantastic that you exceeded your fundraising goal!

  2. Congrats on surpassing your goal! I think it is wonderful and I love what you are doing. Both my grandmothers had breast cancer and I think it is so important for people to support research for this cause.

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?

Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
