blasts from the past

sooo two old memories have come full circle today & i love it!

1. when i was in elementary school my friend alison loved this one book so i took it home, crossed out the "this book belongs to shenandoah elementary" stamp and gave it to her at her birthday party. when her mom realized, she told my mom and i had to bring it back to school and apologize. haha - what a klepto! but every time i tell this story i always say "it was some book about spaghetti, i can't remember the name" and then i see that jemibook has posted a video of the children's book called "strega nona" and its totally THE book my story is about!

2. in 2003 or 2004 karen, erin, gloria and i went to nyc for my birthday and had a blast. on our way home there was a super long layover so the four of us - along with another girl on her way from ny to jax - went in search of an aiport bar and we found one that was offering $2 shots w/ every beer! we drank A LOT & ended up daring each other to kiss some dude sitting at the bar - weird, i know. anyway - today sean tells me his co-worker amber was going through old photos and it turns out SHE WAS THE OTHER GIRL! now that i think about it she totally matches the memory in my head of the girl we met - small, cute, redhead, super nice and bubbly. what a small world! i have got to see these pictures asap!

james franco, what a drag

this is what happens when james hangs out with terry.

folio bite club @ karma

i was picked to attend the folio weekly bite club at karma in ponte vedra beach last night and it was delicious! great food, great chef, great friends - melissa, ken, magda, daniel, wc, erin, sarah, shannon, and our host caron! karma supports local businesses & farmers, makes everything from scratch in the kitchen and serves "global cuisine" - i will definitely go back!

movember jax: join or donate!

My boyfriend Sean Collins runs the Jacksonville Beardsmith Society and every November we participate in a worldwide fundraiser called "Movember" where guys start the month clean shaven and grow only mustaches to help raise awareness and funds for prostate & testicular cancer. Basically the mustache is a manly-version of the pink ribbon, make sense?

Can't grow a mustache? Don't worry! Movember is open to men and women all over the world who want to help by raising money, spreading the word and supporting their Mo Bros. Funds raised support the great work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.

Did you know?

- 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in his lifetime
- 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime

Join the Movember Jax Network & create a MoSpace of your own to raise money

We have TONS of local events planned for Movember Jax, so keep your eyes open & participate when and where you can! Prizes will be given out for top fundraisers - team & individual and we'll name the 2010 Man of Movember & Mrs Movember at our end of the month wrap party!

Thank you in advance for helping me to support men’s health!
