World Events: Haiti

I've been pretty horrified to hear all of the reports and sad stories coming out of Haiti regarding the recent earthquake. 4 Hurricanes last year for an already poverty-sticken nation- and then you add this latest blow. Sad. Very sad.

I shopped around a bit for a charity organization so that I could donate. I ended up going with Doctors Without Borders. I thought I'd share their website with you all in case you were interested in donating with them as well.

Support Doctors Without Borders in Haiti

If you decide to give to a charity I thought I would also share this site with you that another friend showed me recently. It had some very helpful info I thought.


Happy Holidays to my FL!!!

I hope you all have a very lovely holidays and Xmas this year (if you celebrate it). Since I was unable to do FL mailings this year with holiday cards, I would like to post this in an entry for you all.

Happy Holidays from meCollapse )


Pimpin' a friend

Just thought I'd spread the word on a friend of mine from my FL that's got a shop on etsy.com-- The ButterflyFactory--

daisy4u  's got some nice landscape photos for sale in her shop if anyone's in the market.

Go here if you'd like to see her stuff.


FL Cut- Public Post

I've been meaning to clean up my FL for awhile. A few of you (jenn & Karen in particular) I keep up with already on FB and you've mostly only been posting there anyways.  I hope you don't take it personally that I cut some of you from LJ. I just wanted to clean up my FL here because I've been posting some personal things lately, and I'd like to keep those personal thoughts for the people that read and post regularly here on LJ.

Some of the cuts I made were because I felt like they were updating their own journals and yet not reciprocating by commenting in my own. I just feel that if you have enough time online to update your own journal regularly, then you have time to comment in mine as well occasionally.  I did keep a few of these that maybe I shouldn't...if you've been bored by my posts, please consider this your option to cut me as well. I understand if you feel like we haven't been clicking (it may be mutual).

A few of the people I cut were friends I've had for awhile but just weren't posting on any regular basis here anymore. If you'd like to continue a casual friendship if you are so inclined-- you all are always welcome to friend me on FB.

I wish you all well. No hard feelings I hope.

This has been making the rounds...

I've seen Maddie's Spohr's story through a few of the blogs that I read, but I wanted to pass it along in case anyone missed it on my FL.

Such a sad sad sad story. I always hug Tanner and Rachel just a little tighter when I hear about things like this.

Her funeral is today at 2:30 pm (CA time). ..
Story and mom's blog is here:

Wear purple today if you would like to participate.

Or you can donate here on their site for the March of Dimes:



Who doesn't love a freebie?

I used this awhile back when I signed up for a cvs card. I noticed they were offering this special again if anyone on the FL is interested and has a CVS card.

Basically, you get 50 free prints for signing up for CVS' photo care acount. The one stipulation is that you need to have a CVS card, but you can easily sign up for one of those online as well.

Don't say I never gave you anything ;-P

Happy Birthday Elvis!!!!

Wow...54...I really am old.

Rock on man! Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!

Hit play...



Just thought I'd let some of you ladies in on a weight loss community I'd joined awhile back. I've really enjoyed their group thus far so it comes highly rec'ed by me!
