This weekend my husband, my dad, my brother and his friend are all going to Tunica, MS for MANCATION! I know, that word is extremely corny, but that's what it is called for real. They are watching a mixed martial arts fight, participating in a Texas Hold 'em poker tournament and a golf tournament, AND skeet shooting. Cigars and beer are included. That ought to be interesting. I will miss my sweet husband. I think it's the first time he has been away for more than 2 nights at a time. He will have a lot of fun though I'm sure of it. I've got some birthday celebrations to go to this weekend and a trip to the gym on Saturday morning! I'm thinking about doing a class of some sort. I love doing aerobic dance classes. They are so much fun and don't feel like exercise!
Tomorrow night I'll be attending a relay for cancer survivors with a friend from work. She has just beat her lung cancer and we are all so very happy for her. She is so strong and her faith has really pulled her through.
During my walk around the track with a good friend, I'll not only be thinking about her and all of the survivors that I've known and met, but I'll also be thinking about the ones who didn't make it. The reason we all need to do everything in our power to help make awareness and raise money for a cure. I know everyone has either been affected or knows someone who has been affected by cancer. I plan to buy a couple of luminaries to carry with me on the walk. If anyone would like me to make it in someone's name, please let me know!! I would be MORE than happy to do it.
Monday is my little brother's 22nd birthday!!! You all know good and well what that means right? Cupcakes!!! Leave it to my brother to pick an outrageous cupcake for me to make him. It will be brownie cupcakes with cookie dough filling and turtle buttercream frosting. I personally think it will be too much going on for one little cupcake...but what he wants, he gets! I can't wait to share the pictures and recipes with ya'll!
Last but not least, Happy Earth Day!!! I have always loved this day because I am very passionate about taking care of the things God has given us. This Earth is a beautiful gift from God and we should all be very adamant about keeping it beautiful. Here is a list of some small things we can all do today to do our part.
1. I will use one bottle for water today instead of wasting many.
2. I will take shorter showers.
3. I will not leave the water running while I brush my teeth.
4. I will not litter and I will gladly pick up litter that others have thrown.
5. I will wash my clothes with cold water instead of hot.
6. I will not print something from the computer unless I absolutely have to.
What are some other things ya'll do to save the enviroment??
