stacy's shower

This last weekend I got a huge dose of family time and baby stuff!  My cousin Stacy and her husband are having their first baby very soon!  A little girl!  Her friends hosted a baby shower and it was a packed house.  She looked super cute with the pregnancy glow and had a mountain of presents to open.  I also got to meet my other little baby cousin for the first time.  Fun day!

esperlue

Since the job hunt has been pretty unsuccessful lately, I've had lot's of time to be creative.  I decided I was kind of dissapointed with my old blog - Addicted to Adorable.  I wanted something new, so I made a new blog! 

It's hard to come up with a name on Blogger that isn't already taken.  It can be pretty frustrating when you think you've finally come up with the perfect name only to realize that it's already been taken.  So I made up a name. 




My  new blog is called Esperlue [es - per - loo].  The name doesn't have any particular meaning.  I simply thought it was pretty and I just wanted a place to be creative whether it be DIY, crafts, cooking, random thoughts - whatever.  I prefer keeping my personal stuff here seperate from that stuff.  Feel free to drop by Esperlue!

While I'm at it - I want to mention Michael's articles on Bleacher Report's website.  It's the fourth most popular sports website in the United States and they've been publishing Michael's articles!  It's all about futbol, so for those of you who aren't into sports, it might not be your thing.  As of now, it's just for fun, but wouldn't it be cool if he were offered a job being a writer!?  Now if I could only harness all my creativity and make a career out of it somehow!

2012 Walk to End Alzheimer's

This week I got something in the mail from the Alzheimer's Association for a fundraiser/walk this year at Atlantic Station.  My brother and I decided that we're going walk in the Walk to End Alzheimer's this September!  All the funds we raise will go towards research, prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's.

This walk is really important to me because my Grandma has been living with Alzheimer's for almost a decade now.  It's been really heartbreaking for my whole family and especially my Grandpa - whose commitment and devotion to my Grandma sets a real example of what marriage is about.  They've been married 64 years!  It's kind of hard to even comprehend how long that is!

My wonderful grandparents.

It'd mean a lot to me if any of my friends and family would make a donation and read my more detailed personal page here on the Alzheimer's Association website.

No matter how big or small, I'd be grateful for any contribution you'd be willing to make.  It would really mean the world to me.
