New running shoes... been in Brooks Adrenaline since '08 and decided to switch it up... much cooler color!


The flowers my awesome mom made to go on chalkboard plates I am making for Channing's teachers! I LOVE them!

Also, in light of the recent Sandy Hook Tragedy I am teaming up with some FAB bloggers to make the kiddos first days back at school a little more merry. I am almost at a loss for words on this whole thing. I simply cannot imagine what those families and kiddos are going through. When I was running yesterday on the treadmill I watched some news coverage on it.. really for the first time since it happened. Mostly because my heart couldn't handle it all. I watched as the people from 'The Voice' sang to honor those whos lives were lost and was tearing up... they were holding cards with the names of the victims and their ages... I could hardly handle it. I lose my breath thinking about it and thinking about the what if's. I more than ever am thanking God for Channing and Chandler. I simply cannot put into words how sad I am for that community, those kiddos, their families and friends.

SO if you are interested in helping Sandy Hook Kiddos return to school a little brighter here is how YOU can!
The National PTA  wants to start the new year off for the children in a winter wonderland and what better way then walking through a new school with tons of snowflakes. They are asking that you make paper snowflakes and they will hang them around the school. Such a simple task and a small gesture to show support for the children, staff, parents, etc. I know I will be sending over a few and I hope if you read this you will too. All snowflakes need to be in by January 12, 2012
Please send all snowflakes and donations to:
Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514

Pass this along and let's make that new school the winter wonderland those children deserve.
Please think about helping them in doing this!
