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!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
