Hunter and I~
Matt and Beth Johnston~

I hope you enjoyed the photos from our friends Matt and Beths wedding. They got married last night out by a lake.. it couldnt have been more perfect!!! I am so very happy for them. I know Beth had a hard time with the planning and didnt have a whole lot of help. But it was pretty, classy and we had a really good time. If I was to complain about one thing, it would be that it was held on a Monday night.. but hey, its their day so why would I complain. ;) hehe.

Todd sure cleaned up good dontcha think??? He was super handsome I thought. Hunter was wanting to stay and dance the night away but we just couldnt he had 4 pages of homework to do and I had sleep on my mind after a busy day at work. I told him not to fear we have one more this coming weekend-wedding that is!!! My niece is getting married Saturday and we are leaving Friday night to go down and spend the weekend in a cabin at a resort at Lake of the Ozarks. I sooo cannot wait! Woot woot!

Have a great week! :O)

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Just checking in to say hello and because I feel its super important that you do this... please go in for your yearly mammograms and check yourselves monthly. Early detection can save lives. Ive always told my friends if you are too scared or nervous to go, please ask me to go with you. I dont mind at all. Or I can be of support in any way that youd like. Just go! :O)

I dont think I have ever really posted much on the subject of breast cancer. But most people I dont think do- unless they know someone who is a survivor or victim or someone currently diagnosed. My mother-in-law is a breast cancer survivor, altho I did not know her during her battle, but if I had I would have been posting this then. I would have joined her in the battle and supported her in any way possible. I intend on doing just that for my Aunt Pat who was diagnosed with breast cancer this past Monday. Its been really hard and I cannot say how many tears were shed at first and how bad it made ME feel. I finally quit feeling bad for ME and apologized to the good Lord for being so selfish and started praying for my Aunt. She goes in October 11th to find out what the treatment plan/surgery is going to be. Her heart is very weak at this point so we are fearful that they wont be able to do much. I do pray however that God is with her and eases the pains she will feel in the coming days, weeks and months.

Starting October 11th I have decided that I am going to do what I need to do to get my life in order. I just feel like this is a sign from God that I have a chance.. weight is the only thing keeping me from living a healthy lifestyle. Im thankful that I am young enough to turn it around and I pledge to do so in my Aunts name. I can do this. I will do this. Its time. I will do this alone on my own or with a partner, we shall see.. it doesnt matter because in my mind I am going to push away the pain like my Aunt has for years with her bad health, put a smile on my face, work hard and push through until I am the healthy person I deserve to be. I know this is the only wish she has for me. I completely feel indebted to her and will do this for her!

Sorry this post is so heavy.. its the way my entire week has been. Im hoping the beautiful weather will be a breeze of relief and put an end to all the yuck. Hope you have a great weekend too! :O)
