Moving slowly, but still moving forward!

Today I hit the snooze alarm twice, and barely made it to the gym by 6. I have been moving like molasses! After a great workout with Laura I came home and cleaned up and heavily debated going to work or crawling back into bed. I of course chose to be responsible path and made it to work and have been a busy bee all day. I'll be in bed early tonight for sure!

So aside from training, I have also been raising money to help find a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma. Honestly, I don't know what stresses me out more sometimes, the physical training, or raising money. It's times like this I get to be creative! Out of a lot of support and collaboration with friends, I am excited to announce a couple fun fund raisers I'm involved in!

*First of all, my friend Stephanie and I are holding a Garage Sale Saturday morning in Westchester. Half of what we raise will be going towards the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the other half will go to the National Coalition for the Homeless. If you're in the area and are interested in stopping by, here's the info!
Garage Sale
Saturday, Feb. 21th, 9am - 3pm
~Fingers crossed for No rain!!!~
7620 Kittyhawk Ave.
Westchester, CA 90045

**Second!! Saturday evening, Matt and I are hosting a Winter Beach Party at Dockeweiler Beach from 6-10pm. There will be all the fixings for hot dogs (veggie option available) and smores, so come on down and have a good time!

***Third!!! After Brie had a very silly adventure visiting Disneyland, an idea was born! For every $10 donated, I will be hand delivering (dressed as Giselle from Enchanted) polished "Happiness and Gratitude" Rocks to the children in the hospital. This is a great opportunity to not only help fight Leukemia and Lymphoma, but also brighten the day of a child. All you need to do is make sure to include "Rocks for Kids" in the comment section of your online donation.

The "Happiness and Gratitude" Rocks!

My Giselle costume that I will be wearing to spend the day with the children!

Have a great day everyone!

  1. What wonderful ideas! I can't wait to hear about how they went, especially the Giselle one. I'm amazed you think being somewhere by 6 am is molasses! What's slower than molasses? Me at 8:30 hitting snooze four times. :-) Your an inspiration, my friend!

  2. Now that I know that you make your costumes, I am even super impressed.
