Feel Your Boobies !


I'm not sure if everyone knows this but it is October ! 
And October is National Breast Cancer Month ! This means lots of things! 
But one important one--- Mammograms ! They could save your life-- 
My family recently went through a rough time when my mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer- it was the first encounter with any kind of disease or illness in my family (we've been very blessed). So naturally we were scared ! But mom was staying strong, for me !  And thi, more than anything!, killed me!
She was going through one of the hardest things she will ever experience and she was worried about me, just a glimpse of the amazing compassion and love this woman has for not just me but everything ! She never worries about herself. But she was terrified. Who wouldn't be--its the unknown and thats one of the most common fears ! Because no matter how many people you speak to that have been in your position- no one can truly ever tell you what you will experience ! 
Think about that ! That's terrifying ! 
Come to find out after weeks of testing and a few biopsies she was diagnosed with 
Stage 0 breast cancer and in moms words- 
"If you're going to get it, I guess its the best it can be">> She amazes me ! 
Basically Stage 0 means that she has 100% survival rate ! And that the Cancer cells are contained mainly within the milk ducts. Nothing sounded so good ! 
My biggest fear was losing my mom, I'm an only child and my parents are my best friends and the thought alone of her being sick made me feel dead.
But the thought of losing her- I can't even describe ! 
So Stage 0 was the best news we had heard !
I left school for a week to stay at home through the surgery and the recooperation ! And I'm estatic to say the surgery went better than ever- aside from the gut wrenching emotional day we spent waiting ! They got everything they needed to get and there will be no kemo -- just a few weeks of radiation ! This to me was the best gift I could have ever asked for !
Mom was worried about the Holidays coming up and not being able to give 100% - 
we're crazy Christmas people haha, But to my family and I just having mom will m
ake it the Best Christmas Ever ! 

There are so many things you can do to help with the Researching of Breast Cancer --- 
go to the Breast Cancer Site. com and check it out ! Learn something thats the first step - spread the cause- the word is contagious and you'd be surprised at who you will reach.

Also Save the Ta-tas Foundation-- which gives 100% to Breast Cancer Research ! !

or Send in Yoplait Yogurt Tops and 10 cents is funded towards mammograms !



Mammograms can save your life and many others
No one wants to lose a loved one
so do yourself a favor and
Feel Your Boobies 
not just in October
 but every month and join the cause !

He's Got My Vote !

My dad emailed me this early this morning I decided to share it with everyone --- I thought it was very thought provoking .........
Good Ole Bill Cosby !!!!!
I HAVE DECIDED TO BECOME A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE.
HERE IS MY PLATFORM:

(1) 'Press 1 for English' is immediately banned. English is the official language; speak it or wait at the border until you can.

(2) We will immediately go into a two year isolationist posture to straighten out the country's attitude. NO imports, no exports.
We will use the 'Wal-Mart's policy, 'If we ain't got it, you don't need it.'

(3) When imports are allowed, there will be a 100% import tax on it.

(4) All retired military personnel will be required to man one of our many observation towers on the southern border. (six month tour) They will be under strict orders not to fire on SOUTHBOUND aliens.

(5) Social security will immediately return to its original state. If you didn't put nuttin in, you ain't gettin nuttin out. The president nor any other politician will not be able to touch it.

(6) Welfare - Checks will be handed out on Fridays at the end of the 40 hour school week and the successful completion of urinalysis and a passing grade.

(7) Professional Athletes --Steroids - The FIRST time you check positive you're banned for life.

(8) Crime - We will adopt the Turkish method, the first time you steal, you lose your right hand. There is no more life sentences. If convicted, you will be put to death by the same method you chose for your victim; gun, knife, strangulation, etc.

(9) One export will be allowed; Wheat, The world needs to eat. A bushel of wheat will be the exact price of a barrel of oil.

(10) All foreign aid using American taxpayer money will immediately cease, and the saved money will pay off the national debt and ultimately lower taxes. When disasters occur around the world, we'll ask the American people if they want to donate to a disaster fund, and each citizen can make the decision whether it's a worthy cause.

(11) The Pledge of Allegiance will be said every day at school and every day in Congress.

(12) The National Anthem will be played at all appropriate ceremonies, sporting events, outings, etc.

Sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes but a vote for me will get you better than what you have, and better than what you're gonna get. Thanks for listening, and remember to write in my name on the ballot in November.
God Bless America !!!!!!!!!!!
Bill Cosby!!!!!!!!

November 4th Don't Forget !

October Break

Don't fret I'll be back I'm going on a little vacation for a few days ---some fall fun and baking of course planned-shopping and maybe a haunted hayride or two :)
Homecoming Weekend at home-- so I'm excited !!!

Here's a fall craft for you to try :)
A molded candle can light up a room even after the flame is out. Create whimsical orange pumpkins, yellow gourds, and green 'Forelle' pears with blushes of red). They're ideal as a centerpiece for the holiday table or as a gift for a dear friend.

The first thing you'll need to make these candles is a mold in which to pour the molten wax.

A large selection of molds is available at crafts stores, or you can make your own, as we've done using birch logs and pumpkins. Even a candy mold will do the job. Just don't use plastic, which may melt.

Beeswax is soft, with an opaque glow, which provides a visual warmth that remains after the wax has been colored. Finally, dress up some of the candles with paint.

Grouped together, pumpkin and gourd candles, along with walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, and bittersweet, make an eye-catching display.

Color Glossary
Colorant is sold in blocks; cut 1/4-inch square shavings with a knife or a vegetable peeler. For every pound of bleached beeswax, use the following number of shavings to create the various projects in this article.

Pale-orange pumpkins and gourds: 6 white, 4 brown, 2 rust brown, 2 sunshine yellow, 1 olive
Orange pumpkins and gourds: 10 sunshine yellow, 5 rust brown, 2 brown
Yellow gourds: 6 sunshine yellow, 4 white, 2 brown, 1/2 rust brown
Burnt-orange gourds: 6 sunshine yellow, 4 brown, 4 rust brown, 3 cherry, 3 ruby
Violet pinecones: 3 violet, 2 brown, 1 ruby
Logs: 10 brown, 3 rust brown, 3 true black
Pears: 2 olive, 1 turquoise, 1 sunshine yellow, 1/2 rust brown

XOXO
Happy Crafting

Meet Brittany.....



This is Brittany...one of my three roomates and here is a recent mishap.....
Stories begins Sunday night....my roomate Colleen and I were driving back from a weekend at home and returned to our room exhausted and ready to relax- yet when we opened the door of Shove Lounge(our residence) we encountered our two roomies and 2 boys---One we knew-One we recognized and a second later another came busting through the door
now this is a weird situation when all the ppl that actually live in the room are there and then someone busts in without knocking--- anyway this one we had never seen ! Which doesn't happen often since College is like High School here- SMALL and DRAMATIC ----- anyway---- they were drinking Keystones and Wine and then the one loser opened his mouth.....

Unknown Loser: I think you chicks should SLap the Bag
(two things wrong with this sitaution don't call me a chick thats a girl to girl phrase and two what the fuck are you, Slap the bag ???)
Us: No thanks we're heading out again (we were trying to escape)
Unknown Loser: Well I think you should Slap the bag (speaking in a rather retarded tone too mind you)-- yeah I think you should SLap the bag.....
Us: What the hell is slap the bag???!!!??
Unknown Loser: Ok--- ( assumes random position similar to that of a gay man about to get reared) ----(motions to Leah) bring that bag over here (wine bag)
Leah: Dont drink it all !
Unknown Loser: Ok.......(fixes gay position)...OBSERVE SLAP THE BAG
------ Literally Slaps the side of a wine bag as if he were scolding a puppy--- then begins to somewhat funnel the wine !
then stands as if he was to recieve a round of applause !!!!

.........Crickets and blank expressions ---- we left the girls to there boys and the Unknown Loser
and exited the room
...not returning for almost 4 hours.........to find both roomates in bed with boys----yet thank god NOT the Unknown Slap the Bag Loser !!!!!!....Drunk Brittany can be heard quite vividly in here make out sesh with the recognized boy and Leah with an old sleepover buddy .......
Brittany left to go to the recognized boys room to sleep--- and returned in the morning---
a few days later shes sicker than ever and skipping classes-- the recognized boy texts her- "Where are you Brit?"
Dying in bed she respondes....."Oh, thats probably from me", he says.
Loser was SICK !!!! SO Brit suffered illness for 2 1/2 days :(
Coming to find out the Loser almost became facebook official with a so called girlfriend thats amazing and he's in love with and everyone should know the same day !
So not only did he get her sick--- but totally fucked her over----by mysteriously gaining a gf in 2 days that hes head over heels in love with !!! WHAT IS THAT

-----Moral------- background check the health and relationship status before making out with a only recognized boy--- he should either be a stranger--random party boy---or someone you know at least 3 things about.......
Oh pooooooor Brit :(
