Pink Pacers Rock!

The Pink Pacers hosted the first ever "Get REAL & HEEL 5K Walk - Bridging the Gap From Treatment to Active Living" this past Saturday and it was an awesome event! We had over 200 people register for the walk, and although it was a bit nippy Saturday morning at 7:45 am, things warmed up significantly throughout the morning and it was a beautiful day for a walk through the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill!

Like the larger Avon walks, we had cheering stations throughout the 5K and my friend Jennifer and I were stationed at the first spot, and of course I brought my little guy along with me to help cheer on the walkers! His name is Walker, and when I told him we were going to cheer on the walkers, he said, "Everyone is going to be cheering for me?"

The Pink Pacers are trying to do more in our local community and through this walk, we were able to raise money for the Get REAL & HEEL program. Get REAL & HEEL is a unique program designed to serve breast cancer patients in North Carolina. It's not just an exercise program - it integrates individualized prescriptive exercise with recreational therapy to provide a program that strengthens your body and mind. We don't have formal totals yet, but all money raised for the walk goes to this wonderful organization!

Here are a couple of pics from the day! Walk on...

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 Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

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!
