It's Here and I am Walking

Sorry for missing my usual post day yesterday- it has been a busy 4-day week. I am happy to say that I met my fundraising goal for the AVON Walk for Breast Cancer tomorrow. I will be at Soldier field for the opening ceremony bright and early at 5:45am. The weather in Chicago is going to be cooler (low to mid 70s), but, rainy so I will be wet, but, somehow I don't think it will matter - at least not for the first 10 miles or so...

I will be walking with two good friends Kristin Hanson and Alicia Rivera along with our team mates, the Holy Apostles Pink Ribbon Angels who have raised more than $82,000 dollars for the cause this year. I want to give a big shout out to my supporters because I couldn't have done it without you. Anyone who wants to join me in this fight is still welcome to give even after the event. Go to My supporters will be entered into a drawing for one of two prizes- a brand new personal mp3 player complete with some empowering music that I will send to you or, for those of you in the Chicago area, a gift certificate for a wine tasting at Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant.

Other news- we close on our house in Chicago on Monday! For someone who has been moving every 2-3 years since she was 23(I am closing in on 40)this is big. Not only will I be a homeowner for the first time, but, I expect to be in the same place for quite some time. It is a relief and I can paint, redecorate, etc to my hearts content. Meanwhile, my husband Ben has been watching a lot of how to videos on the Internet and he only has a week and a half of school left so I say have at it... Have a good weekend!
