Why I am blessed

This video is just one of the many reasons I have been blessed in my life.  On July 1st my husband came home early from overseas.  I knew he was going to be arriving early, however Jacob didn't.  I didn't get the entire welcome on video since the time ran out but you can see by his face he wasn't quite sure what to think of  his daddy standing at the door.

And you can hear our dog, Daisy having a fit because he came home :)

The Breast Cancer Site - save $5/$25

On April 12, 2010 one of my best friends, Angel was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  Since that day I have wondered what I can do to fight this fight with her and help to bring awareness to others about breast cancer. One idea we recently had and we were pretty successful with was the Pink Lemonade Stand.  Another way to help raise money and to help fund mammograms is through the Breast Cancer Site.

Excerpt from The Breast Cancer Site:
The Breast Cancer Site was founded to help offer free mammograms to women in need: women for whom early detection would not otherwise be possible. Every click on the pink "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button funds free mammograms for women in need. Visit The Breast Cancer Site and click every day!

I am a fan on Facebook for the Breast Cancer Site and today I received a code to save $5 off any purchase of $25 or more at their store when you enter FIVE at checkout.  This code expires on 7/12.  They have so many cute items to choose from here.

Please feel free to read about Angel's story - her wish is that her story will be an inspiration to other women and to start mammography screening early!!

There are many, many other ways you can help out with raising money and awareness to breast cancer.  I'll continue to post about this over the next few weeks.  It's so important to be screened early!!!!

CSN stores has graciously offered one of my readers a $30 gift certificate to use in any of their stores!  How cute would this picnic backpack be to use during the summer?  It's just one of the MANY items you can get and I think I may add it to my wish list :)
