JCPenney Optical’s Back to School Promotion [Review and Giveaway]

I received a JCPenney gift card for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. All thoughts and opinions here are my own. It’s Back to School time, y’all! It’s the Most Wonderful Tiiiiime of the Year… sing it with me. Food Advertising by Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my girls, but I work from home and it’s nearly impossible to concentrate on work with five daughters underfoot. I have been counting down the minutes until school starts since about two weeks into summer break! The biggest negative about Back to School is the expense that comes with it. Clothes, check-ups, school supplies, new shoes, new glasses just to name a few! I have five daughters (four of them wear glasses). It’s a very expensive …

Life, Hope, and Walking

I walk for my future granddaughters so that they may wear pink ribbons in their hair, and not on their shirts. Did you know… in the United States one person is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes (I say person because men develop breast cancer too!). And 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Those are some pretty startling statistics. No one should ever have to face this disease, so in order to create a future without breast cancer, Nancy Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. For me, the breast cancer movement started …

Why I Walk pt 2

Read part 1 here When I tell people that I am participating in the Susan G. Koman 3 Day for the Cure they look at me like I’m crazy; ESPECIALLY when I tell them that this will be my 4th walk. Some people even tell me that it’s impossible for them to walk that far in 3 days, so they aren’t even going to try. But I know it’s all in how you punctuate it! It’s not “Impossible” it’s “I’m Possible”. I know that’s a little corny, but it’s true. On my first walk I discovered I can accomplish the impossible; I just have to believe in myself. The way that I explain why I walk, is like this… This is my “one thing” I do for myself every year. I know, …

Join me in the fight against breast cancer

As you may know from reading previous posts, I have participated in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure the past 3 years (Washington DC 2009, San Diego 2010, Philadelphia 2011). The 3-Day is an adventure beyond description. I always meet amazing friends, see many wonderful sites and discover that when I put my mind to something I can accomplish it, no matter what. I remember my first walk vividly… Washington DC. I didn’t train as much as I should and it showed! I wasn’t able to complete the entire 60 miles because of a pinched nerve in my foot, I walked nearly 21 miles on Friday, 10 miles on Saturday and the full 18 miles on Sunday. The last two miles I kept the mantra “Margaret, Jackie, Lilly” …

Why I Participate in the Komen 3-Day for the Cure Breast Cancer Walk

I am walking in memory of Margaret Kelly (my husband Colm’s mother), Elizabeth “Lilly” Crangle (Colm’s aunt) and Jackie Kelly McCann (Colm’s sister) three wonderful people whose lives were cut short by Breast Cancer. And I am walking for my five daughters in hopes that a cure will be found very soon. This event isn’t easy, but I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t believe 100% that it was worth every muscle ache and injury (tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, pinched nerve, oodles of blisters), weary nights in a little pink tent (too hot, high “are we going to wake up in Oz?” winds, pouring rain and way too cold—all over a two-night span!) and other interesting experiences that would be considered TMI to share here!
