Winner Winner Boobie Dinner

ok i lied. i have one more thing to gush about and then i'll shut up. i won the Boobie Bake off! $80 will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in my name. i guess the economy is effecting everyone and this year's turn out was not as high as last year's. however, on the bright side: $80 is on the lower end of the average cost of a mammogram for uninsured patients. Tamoxifen costs between $80 and $100 for a one month supply. (Q&A #34) the statistics this year alone are staggering and i know of one loss, thru the blogging community: Bri of Figs with Bri. my thoughts and prayers are with her family.

so thank you very much for your support and donation! as promised, to the people who emailed me to let me know they voted, i put your names in a bowl for the raffle.

and my college suitemate Carla wins! i was one of her bridesmaids back in 2002 and now she has 3 beautiful kids: Ryker, Mystic and Aspen.

today marks the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. that doesn't mean we should neglect our boobies for the rest of the year. just sayin! have a great weekend, be safe, be warm, remember to floss and brush your teeth after gorging on candy... and most importantly, hold your loved ones close.
