New site that I found...

I don't really have all that much to say today. I've been on msn questions to answer some questions and try to promote this blog a little bit when I found this great site that someone had posted. Click here to check it out. Seems like a pretty cool site to help raise awareness.

If you are reading this and find a site that is really informative, please send me the link in a comment or something so I can post it and share the information! Remember, sharing is caring :)

The incredible Breast Cancer Cupcakes...

Now, by popular demand, here are those cupcakes that not only looked great but tasted even better. Thank you sooo much Tiffany, for taking the time to make these.

Remember, if you want to see what else Tiffany is up to, go here. Feel free to subscribe to her blog...and this one if you'd like.

More information on the 3 day walk will follow in future blogs. If you are in Fort Lauderdale, this weekend, October 13th is the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. It's not only great to be outdoors getting some exercise, but it's an emotional event that I encourage everyone to join in on. The women who are constantly fighting the disease, and winning, are amazing and they deserve your support so come on down to Huizenga Plaza in downtown Fort Lauderdale and join us.

Breast Cancer Cupcakes

It's October. Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So, in honor of that and to start my fundraising off, my great friend Tiffany Holley and I, made some homemade cupcakes for the office. With these cupcakes we had a sign put out explaining why they have the pink ribbons on them and asking for donations. In the display, it was explained that I'm going to be doing the 3-day walk in San Francisco and any money raised here will be matched by me and go towards Breast Cancer Research.

Now, a little about Tiffany. She is not only an amazing cupcake maker/baker but also an incredible writer. To show off the cupcakes I will post some pictures of the Breast Cancer Cupcakes in my next blog. But, if you would like to check out her writing, which will not only prove entertaining but also informative in ways you would never imagine, take a second to visit her blog.

I'm in!!!

I just got the email saying that I've got a spot saved for me to do the 3-day walk. I'm pretty excited and I must admit, very nervous about this. This is going to be a huge goal for me to achieve. 60 miles in 3 days is no easy feat. Well, that combined with not really enjoying being out in nature and I'm going to be camping in it...hmmm...not exactly sure that this is the best fit for me. But you know what...I'm sure Breast Cancer isn't really a "fit" for the men and women who get it either. So I'm not allowing myself to do any complaining. It's for an incredible cause and that's all that matters.

My goal now, besides training, is to find someone to go with me to San Diego and raise the necessary funds. If anyone has any good fundraising tips, please comment to let me know.

Here's the actual email:

Dear jayne,
Your spot is saved!
Thanks for stepping up and saving your spot for the 2008 Breast Cancer 3-Day. It's the enthusiasm and support of people like you that make the 3-Day such an incredible journey. We'll be in touch in October when 2008 registration opens. We look forward to working with you, walking with you and bringing hope to the millions of people battling breast cancer.
Your Breast Cancer 3-Day Team

2008 Breast Cancer 3 Day

So, it's official. I'm signed up for the Breast Cancer 3 day walk. I'm going to start training now because although I'm just's 60 miles in 3 days!! I don't think that's something I'm used to and I want to make sure to get through starting training now. If anyone knows of any good tips, please share!! Also, if anyone has done the 3 mile walk I'd really love some insight into what I can expect. I'm already pretty pumped up about it but nervous about going it alone.

If you are interested in signing up for the 3 day walk or would at least like some more information on it, click here.
This was an email I received...can't hurt to help by just clicking...

A favor to ask, it only takes a minute....

Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle). This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising. Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.

Some quick tidbits...

Being girly, loving pink and wanting to continue to help the Susan G. Komen Foundation, I found a really cute (not to mention inexpensive) ring that I just had to buy. It can be found at right on the first page. It's the promise ring. Here's some information on the promise ring: "Susan G. Komen for the Cure was born in a promise between Nancy G. Brinker and her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, to save lives and end breast cancer forever. Wear the ring to show you're part of the promise, too. It's a promise that's meant to be shared. And the more people committed to ending this disease, the sooner we'll find a cure. So, give a ring to a friend and pass the promise." Basically, when you order the ring, which is only $5 plus shipping, you get two rings in the mail. You keep one and give the other to a good friend...passing the promise. The promise is for early detection through different steps.

Then, being in a rather shoppy kind of mood, I found another site, thanks to a great blog: The website is and it's got some really great accessories. Money earned from that website helps to fund mammograms. So, it's a win/win.
