Think PINK!!!

Hi everyone! I know, it's been a long time since I updated and I'm sorry. I've been very busy! We had a blast at Disney and I have some really good pictures! I'll try to post some soon.

The biggest item on my radar lately has been fundraising for my Avon Breast Cancer Walk. I don't know how many of you remember this but I blogged about it several months ago. I will be joining several thousand people in Charlotte, NC on October 25 and 26 to walk a total of 39 miles. I'm on a team of five women and I've really enjoyed getting to know them through all this fundraising and getting prepared for the walk.

I'm much closer to my goal of $1800 than I was several months ago...I think I'm close to $1000. I really would like to be able to go to the walk for check in and have all my funds raised, rather than hope that someone will give me any extra they may have. At this point in the game, I only need 32 people to donate $25.00 and I will reach my goal!

Please visit my Avon Walk site and consider donating. It's very easy...just go to Once on the site you should be able to easily find the button that says "make a donation." Just click on that button and enter the information needed. You should receive a receipt via email for your tax purposes. I am so grateful for everyone who has already donated! You have no idea how much this means to me...after my step-mom's survival of breast cancer, and my scare last spring, the effort to find a cure is more critical to me than ever before.
The walk is fast approaching and any help I can get with fundraising would be fabulous!

Glad to see you posting again and I'm glad that you're doing good on the walk. Mom and I were just talking about that the other day wondering if you were still doing it. now your turn. How did you do the custom border for your blog? It's super cute. :)

I didn't do it and I forgot to post a link to the place where I found it. I think it's Leelou Blogs...not sure though. Check back in a day or so and you should find a link...sorry! I was looking for a breast cancer themed one, b/c my step-sister has a beautiful one on her blog (Grits and Gossip) but that was the only one I could find, so I settled for this one. I could probably make it myself b/c I kinda have the know how, but I just don't have the time.

Thanks, Robin. It's a cute border. At least you have the know how. I have nothing. ;)
