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...


  1. Oh, a trip to Disney is a great place to start training. :-) All the dodging of other people, characters and strollers will get you in shape!

    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.

  3. AMAZING!!!!!!! I am so proud of you! YAY!

  4. That is WONDERFUL! Congrats and way to go for supporting such a good cause.

  5. Wow! That is just fantastic. Congrats and many thanks (BC has touched my family and so has this walk). Xoxo-BLC

  6. Get fit at a local Fleet Feet (if there is one close to you) for walking shoes. Trust me, you'll be thankful :-) Good luck and great job on the fundraising!

  7. Congrats!!

    So sad to hear that you lost one of your inspirations... this is why we continue the fight though, I guess.

    Keep us posted on your journey :-)

  8. If you have room, will you write my Grandma Edna's name? Thanks and congrats cuz!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

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'…
