What's new?

Hello Bloggers!
It's been a while since updating.
What's new?
Well, I've signed up the walk the Tampa 2009 Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk (Oct 09).
I'll be walking 60 miles over the course of 3 days. I've also agreed to raise
$2300 to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust.

I'm doing this because my mom had breast cancer and thankfully, she is a survivor.
She is one of the lucky ones, because it was caught early!

If you interested in supporting me.. click on the 3 day link to your left.
Or you can go here:
This is a 100% tax-deductible contribution.

I've been told that raise the $$ is the easiest part of this journey. The hardest
will be the actual walk. I started walking regularly about a month ago. I walk
about 3-4 miles 3 days a week and 6-7 miles on Sunday. I'll be increasing these
distances as time goes on.

If you are not able to help me with a donation, I just ask that you keep me in
your thoughts and prayers as I train and raise $$ for this worthy cause.

Can you believe?

....that Valentine's day is just around the corner? It's crazy how fast time is flying by!

With that said, I wanted to share info about a Valentine's swap I just joined over at
An Island Life. Check it out and Join if you'd like!

Here's what ya do. Go over to An Island Life and sign into Mr Linky and post a comment.
You'll have to put together a little Valentine's box for the person who signs up directly above
you. Then the next person to sign up will send you a little Valentine's box of treats. (priced between $8-$10)

Next, answer this little questionaire:

What is your idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day? A dinner cruise with Dear Hubby with lots of yummy champagne.
In reality, what is your Valentine’s Day really like? Take out from BoneFish with lots of yummy champagne. LOL!
If you could have a lifetime supply of your favorite sweet indulgence, what would it be?
Tehehe! Yummy Champagne! Just kidding.. I love PB cups!
Is there any sweet treat you absolutely do not like? liquorice is one I can do without.
If you fell into a pool of chocolate, how would you get out?
Call all my good friends (cause I always have my cell phone on me) and tell them to get over quick with some skewers, strawberries, pound cake, etc... "We're having a fondue party!" (and "don't forget the champagne") Nothing like beatin' a dead horse.

I RECEIVED AN AWARD! Teheheheehe! I'm gitty!

I just received my first blog award. I guess I better start giving this blog some
more attention!
My "virtual" friend Liz at has granted me this lovely award!

So here is what I am suppose to do:
Honorees are to list 10 honest things about themselves - and make it interesting, even if we have to dig deep! Second, we are to pass the award on to 7 bloggers we feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.
10 Honest Things About Me:
1. I miss living around my brother.
2. I love to drink wine every night (but I don't because
it cost too much and I like the expensive stuff).
3. I use to be a neat freak but then I taught Kindergarten for
five years and I really changed my ways.
4. I miss teaching a BUNCH.
5. Like Liz, sometimes I wish for another baby.
(even though I'll be 40 in 2010 YIKES!)
6. Since moving I've not found any good friends.. and it sucks
because I really miss my Tampa/St Pete friends.
7. I'm planning on walking the Cancer 3-day walk
in Oct and I'm scared I won't raise enough $$.
8. I love my boys so much, sometimes I want
to bite their toes. (specifically Lukas, he's got the
cutest little piggies EVER)
9. I truly hate my hair and wish it was more acceptable
for women to wear crew cuts. LOL!
10. I need to go to the dentist and to the dermatologist.
(Dentist because I have a tooth that hurts and the dermatologist
because I'm suppose to go every 9 months and I've not been in 2 years,
again YIKES!)
Now to pass this along to 7 bloggers:
3- Cari
7- Tena
Thanks again Liz!
