Rescue Orphans

Below is a challenging reminder from World Orphans of how we can make a difference in this world. I met World Orphan's Mike Vinson at Together for Adoption last November and they have a wonderful program that connect us all with practical ways to rescue orphans.

Maybe I should pick up another habit ...

Mark another off of the list.

A little while back I told you about my Before 30 list. I got to cross another off this week as I successfully completed a month long fast from Diet Coke, which includes all other types of diet sodas. It wasn't all that hard since I had coffee to get my caffeine fix, so I thought I would keep it up.
However, I binged on February 1 with three diet sodas. I realized that I have an actual problem when I had a Diet Pepsi at lunch. I hate Diet Pepsi, but it was the only diet soda option and I wanted to have it simply because I could. It reminds me that I have only run four times since the half-marathon eight weeks ago.
Hmmm... maybe my goals should be to be a runner and to never drink Diet Coke again. Too bad I don't really like running and I LOVE Diet Coke.

2009 The Year of the Scarf

I wear a lot of scarves. As I threw one on yesterday I wondered if I wore them too often. Yet, by a happy coincindence I came across this video today and I will sport the scarf until it is long out of fashion! And, check out Big Mama because she is hilarious.
