So, the big news is that I met my minimum! I have one last check in the mail (I sent it on Thursday) that needs to post to make it official, but once it does, I will be at $2420! The matching donation from Founders Day posted on Friday and I had a few lovely […]


Been awhile since I’ve posted. Things have been insanely busy. I did a training walk with the Atlanta #3DayTweeps, and I was prepping for Tyrone’s Founders Day, where I had 2 anonymous people that sponsored my table…and I was determined not to let them down. The walk went great. Kristen wasn’t walking this time, but […]


As we get closer and closer to the Atlanta 3 Day walk, the importance of support from friends, family, #3DayTweeps, and total strangers gets even more important. And while donations are a huge way to help, there are other things you can do to reduce your walker’s stress level and help them have a great […]


Craziness.

There are no other words for it. So much going on as we get closer to the event (EIGHT WEEKS!!!!). I’m way overwhelmed right now, so I thought I’d put a couple notes here for myself to refer back to…and give people a preview of what I have for Tyrone Founder’s Day so far. I […]


What does it say about me that I forgot to do my post on my own birthday? Actually…this is a recap of all the fabulousness that was yesterday. :o) I sent out emails. I posted on Facebook. Friends and family reposted on Facebook. I posted on Twitter. Friends re-tweeted me. I got a total of […]


I seem to go in fits and spurts with things. On a roll…then nothing…then a bunch at once…then nothing. Here’s what’s coming up: This weekend, I pick up my Miata! It took forever, but yes, I will finally get to see it (nope…I really haven’t even seen a pic of it!). I fly to Ft. […]


Do you like to save money? Of course you do. Who doesn’t?! Have I got a deal for you! I’ve set up a fundraiser with Entertainment books. These books are jam-packed with coupons for restaurants, movies, theme parks, and all kinds of other things…and you can get one for whatever area you want in the […]


First, and most importantly: I’VE HIT THE HALF WAY POINT IN FUNDRAISING!!!!!!!!! Ok, now that we have that out of the way, here are the details:  One of the pending mailed in (from my friend Ginny’s company Specialty Car Co.) donations I knew about posted on Wednesday, which puts my fundraising total at $1,236.50…which means […]


1) Training walks. Either leading the “official” ones or on my own. I have no good excuse, but lots of bad ones if you want them. 2) Fundraising. Again, no good excuse, just lots of bad ones. 3) Losing weight. Ok, this is a bit of a grey area. I’ve started tracking what I’m eating, […]


Name a diet. I’ve probably tried it. At least, the reasonable ones. I don’t do things like the Grapefruit Diet or stupid stuff like that. And actually, anything that requires you to purchase all meals from the company, I shy away from. I’ll buy snacks…but not every bit of what I’m eating. I had success […]
