What Color Lights Are You?

What Color Lights Are You?

I am Gold Lights!!

"Your holidays are a time of abundance and riches. Even if you don't have a lot during the rest of the year, this is the time that you splurge a little. Your holidays traditions tend to be a bit old fashioned and dignified. You like old holiday movies, properly wrapped presents, and family recipes passed down over the years."

This is Fun ~ See what color Lights you are!

Aloha Friday!!

TGIF and "Aloha Friday" at that! I have decided that my post from yesterday will be my Aloha Friday ~ No questions asked! (But of course I hope you will still leave your name and comments!) It's such an important issue and I would love to share it with more people and get the word out more about "Beyond Boobs" too! So, ladies, get your mammograms, do your self-checks ~ stay healthy! Happy Friday and have a great wk-end! And don't forget to head over to "An Island Life" to read more about
Aloha Fridays!

Read Post below ~ "Keep Doing Your Mammograms Ladies!"


Keep Doing your Mammograms Ladies!!

Lots of uproar about the NEW (?????) recommendations coming out this week regarding Mammograms ~ As well there should be! Wait until your 50?? Are you kidding me??!! Tell that to all the people that belong to a fabulous organization here in Virginia called "BEYOND BOOBS"!!
"Their qualifications for membership are simple: You must be a survivor of breast cancer and you must be young (diagnosed before menopause.)
These dynamic women sought each other out because they are a unique subset of their generation, with concerns, fears, and needs foreign to most of their other friends. They share jaunty hats, babysitting services, healthy recipes, much laughter and many tears. With their paradigms not just shifted but fractured and re-set, they have come together to cherish and support one another. They are also passionate advocates for early detection and diagnosis for everyone, whatever their age. All are freshly aware that our tomorrows are not a given and are determined to maximize today and improve the future, both for themselves and for others. Their goal is to reach women on every college campus, newlyweds at the gynecologist's office, and young moms in line at the grocery store!!!"

I am friends with some of these fabulous women and I am also a cancer survivor going on 4 yrs now!! (not breast cancer) This issue is too important to just ignore!! Keep fighting ladies! Check out their website!
Buy a calendar!! Get your Mammograms on time! And send out tons of love and prayers and Strength, Courage and Hope (always HOPE ~ without HOPE we have nothing!!!)

Aloha Friday Again

HOOAH!. . . . . It's Aloha Friday time and the week-end has started! Hope you all have something fun planned for this beautiful Friday in August! Don't forget to click on over to An Island Life to read more about Aloha Fridays! My question for today is:
"How many times a week do you do some form of exercise?"

(My answer would be: I try to power walk 4x a week. I also live near my gym/sports club, so it is easy for me to get to some classes - I like to do muscle conditioning 2x/week and Yoga/Pilates 2x/week ~ As I get older, think these classes are important too!)

(My answer is: My Mama ( "mommy") ~" I love you so much and wished I lived closer and could just drop by and pick you up for lunch today! Living far away is so hard the older we get ~ so I am sorry for the distance, but hope you know how much you mean to me every minute of the day!")
