There's no turning back now....


It's official. My friend Charlotte and I are signed up for the Breast Cancer 3Day walk on October 3/4/5 this fall. According to the handy dandy countdown on my personal page, that's just 204 days away. I've got that much time to raise at least $2,200. I'm really hoping I can raise more though! Last year my mom raised $4,500!!

I definitely need to go buy new sneakers to start training in. And I'll want to pick up some 3Day gear. And of course I need to start sending out fundraising letters and emails. I'm hoping that Century will make a donation. I know my family will. I'll be asking everyone to split their donations between me and Charlotte. She's really stressing about having to raise so much money, and I want to help her out as much as I can. It all goes towards the same awesome cause anyway! We started our own team, and several of our friends are going to be crew members for us. We are team Shiver Me Boobies (what? We like pirates!) and we pledge to raise a total of $5,000!! Whoohoo!!

I'm so glad that the weather is warming up! I've been taking Tiger out on little jogging/walking trips. She just loves to be outside, so it's perfect. She keeps me company, and I get the exercise I so desperately need. She'll get even more exercise now that I'm doing this walk!

In other news, my designers have been working over time putting together some really awesome kits!!
Here's a LO I did for my friend Priscilla. She's having her second child soon and feels very guilty that her firsts baby book isn't done yet. So she enlisted the help of some of us to scrap the pics for her. Lucky for her, Julie is putting out 2 glorious kits tomorrow at SSD that were a perfect fit!!

And Traci has an AWESOME collab kit with Dani Mogstad hitting the shelves tomorrow too.

If you were over at Kim's blog today, you saw her awesome kit that should hit the DSO shelves sometime this weekend. I've got a LO 3/4 of the way done with it, it's awesome. I'll probably post the LO next week, but I'll get it to Kim and she'll put it up. :o)

Well, I'm hoping to go home soon and start a wonderfully productive weekend. I hope you all have a great weekend and I'll see you soon!
