Race for the Cure

September 28, 2008

One of eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.  This stat has become more of a reality as I hear moms of friends, co-workers, and family being affect by this terrible disease.  Two of my aunts, one from my mom’s side and dad side have both survived after getting a mastectomy.  I’ve been wanting to for a […]

A trip to D-land with my boy

  I feel so blessed to have a boy!  I get to experience places with a new set of eyes.  Disneyland is one of those places.  I have so many great memories of taking my Diz there all dressed up to meet her fav Disney princess of the month and reliving my girlhood.  Going to D-land with Mason has been fun seeing how […]

Cadiz’s First Day of Grade School

September 3, 2008

Where did the time go?  It seems like yesterday my Diz was just a baby cooing and in a blink she’s now a big girl excited to go to first grade.  She’s looking foward to the longer day at school 8:30am-2:45pm and for the 3 recesses.  There was one person however who was not happy and shed a lot of […]
