Keeping my eye on the prize

Race for the Cure 2013...then and now

I am SO disappointed that I will miss race for the cure this weekend. I ran in it a few weeks before my diagnosis in 2011, and then ran in it last year, so to miss it is a HUGE bummer for me. But I have something WAY more important this weekend: my amazing friend, Kelly's baby shower. I am a hostess and will be in Baton Rouge celebrating her and her upcoming arrival. I can't wait to have my 4 best friends (Kelly, Katie, Ainsley, and Margot) all together. The truest of true friends!!!

What's your story? Seems like an easy question, right? But so many of us, including myself feel like we wouldn't know what to say, or that no one would want to hear  our story, or that our story isn't good enough...well, this week has been huge for me in realizing my story.

Our Amazing Week in Vail, Co.

We were in Vail, CO this week, as we attended a conference on maximizing business. We were attending mainly for Josh to learn more entrepreneurship and business, etc..., but we have been overwhelmed by the amount of information that applies to ME. To my story! I have learned so much on how God has given me a platform, an audience, a people to share my story!

Post-cancer thoughts...check your SPAM!


1. I forget I don't have my breasts any more. The other day someone was talking about having to wear a really supportive sports bra. Before I knew it, I was agreeing and telling her which kind I wore. Then, I quickly realized, that isn't true anymore!!! Crazy how I can forget these things. I go to buy a shirt or a bra and realize I have to look for a different size/fit, since my breasts are so different. 

2. I still scratch my head like I have a wig on. Ever seen people with a weave or wig and how they kinda put their finger on top of their head to try and scratch it, but they really can't? Yeah, I still do that from the 6 months I wore Raquel.
