because weekend blogging is where it's at.

i was tagged on wednesday
by my favorite brasilian
and didn't even realise it until
(i fall so behind in the blog M-F)

also, i know that october was the "pink" month
but really, should we limit our support of the research
to find a cure for breast cancer to one month a year?
me thinks not.

so here you are:

i'm tagging:
dani m
missy (who just lost a dear friend to breast cancer)

* One in eight women or 12.6% of all women will get breast cancer in her lifetime.

* Breast cancer risk increases with age and every woman is at risk.

* Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.

* Seventy-seven percent of women with breast cancer are over 50.

* Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women between the ages of 15 and 54, and the second cause of cancer death in women 55 to 74.

* Risks for breast cancer include a family history, atypical hyperplasia, early menstruation (before age 12), late menopause (after age 55), current use or use in the last ten years of oral contraceptives, and daily consumption of alcohol.

* Early detection of breast cancer, through monthly breast self-exam and particularly yearly mammography after age 40, offers the best chance for survival.

Facts taken from Women’s Health

And now here is the tag and the rules:

1. Put the logo in your blog.<---check

2. Add a link to the person who shared it with you.<---check

3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs<---roger that.

4. Add your link to the list of participants below<---not sure how to add all those links

5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.<---check.

i was especially fond of the
'sumbitch' container.

unfortunate outfits galore...

i'll give you a moment to let
that sink in...

two in a row

new record for me
since i started working.
do i get a prize?

lots of nothing to tell
last week i was lucky to get
a lunch date with my man.
best soul food around:
mama lee's

then this past weekend it was time for another
road trip with the bff, her pirate and my lil pirate.
we went to the ren faire in houston

i'll share more on that
when i have more time.
it was FUN though!!

took some time to chill

and because i'm a dork
the sight of the red cup
the other day
surprised me and
made me all warm inside

does it have that effect on any of you?

that's all you get for now peeps.
until the weekend....
