I wear you?

Today is "Wear Red" Day, a day to remind all of us women...our grandmothers, our mothers, sisters and girl take care of their heart health!
Cardiovascular disease claims the life of over 500,000 women each year and many weren't paying attention, weren't aware of the signs, dismiss it as a "man's disease". So it is importanat for us to be aware of our heart health, to take care of ourselves...for we are important for so many other people who we are incharge of taking care. Be good to yourself today...wear read...visit the Go Red for Women website for more information.


It is Friday...Yahoo!
Unfortunately...and fortunately...I will be going into work today - my part-time job that is. All week I have been coordinating a photo shoot to take place at my office. It definitely has been an experience trying to get everything set up, working as a middle-person too coordinate it and making sure that all the right papers and background checks were completed. Anyway, the shoot is happening today, so I am going in to make sure that everything goes according to directions. I am looking foward to it, for it has been a long time since I have been to one of these.

The last photoshoot I attended was when I was working in Marketing and Public Relations for my families company in Minnesota. The theme of the shoot was first birthday as it was for our first Annuarl Report and the model was Robert (older son). He definitely hammed it up when he smeared cake frosting on his face. The photo was also used for the cover of the Kid's Birthday Party Planning brochure (pictured below).
What do you have planned for the weekend? While the boys each have a hockey practice in the wee hours of the mornings, we don't have anything else really planned. DH, of course, will go into *The Store* as we are gearing up for the Valentine's Holiday. Chocolate dipped strawberries...either in a box or created to look like a dozen roses in a special long stemmed red rose box. Yummy!

Wouldn't you like to get one of these from your sweetheart on Valentine's day?
Well, I will be there all next weekend dipping away! I can already smell that sweet scent of melted chocolate mixed with the fruity aroma that is always in the air at *The Store*.

However, this weekend, well with not much really on the agenda I am hoping to stay close to home and get a few things done here...things that don't include laundry as my washer is sick and the fixit doctor can't come until next Tuesday. So we will have to deal with laying out the stinky hockey gear in the sun to dryout and let the sun bake out the germs (right?). Oh, well, there are definitely worse things in life.

Well, take care my friends.Hope you have a good Friday and remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!
