Please share this.

I ask that you share this video.  I know most of you do not know my sister Lydia.  I know she is not the only person in the world facing this.  I also know she is the only sister I have facing this. The only sister I have that I can beg your prayers for.  Please, share this, share her fight.  Please...get screened.
Thank you for thinking of her, for praying for her, for sending healing thoughts and love.

Then life does this.

It's been a really hard few days.  My little sister Lydia was just diagnosed with colon cancer.  The family is in a tail spin.  They did surgery today.  I pray they got it all.  Chemo will start soon.  I can't wrap my head around it and my heart is shattered. 

I want to ask for prayers, love and well wishes for her.  I'm going to encourage her to blog her experience as she fights. She is strong. She will fight. 
I can't fight this one for her no matter how my heart longs to.  My body is already twisted and broken, she shouldn't have to fight this, I want to take the pain and fear for her. It wouldn't matter if it was me. I'm already a mess.

I love her.  We all do.  I cannot imagine what her husband is feeling, nor can I imagine what it is going to be like to tell her two little children. I pray for strength and peace for them.

I did this for her tonight.
When the time comes and the chemo takes her hair, I will shave my head too.  I will hold her hand. I will hold Rachel's hand too.  There are three of us girls.  There always will be. 

Cancer thought it could destroy her.  I believe it was wrong.

Something new!

Ok so I just got these in the mail and had to put them on.  They are the newest thing in nails!  We have all seen the stick on nail polish but this new technology lasts for WEEKS!  Super easy to apply and amazingly strong.  They can go on short nails, long nails, puppy nails, baby nails, you name it. 
Just take a look!
They come in all colors and patterns.  Solid colors to metallics, they have them all! 
So where can you find out more about them?  Ask Denise at
She can tell you everything you need to know!  So easy, so gorgeous, so affordable!

Try them for yourself!
They also have awareness ones like these on my friend Leah's nails:
Have fun!
Tell her Sharon sent you!
XOXO~ Sharon

Change, inside and out.

Mid century diet was...not low cal or low fat!  How on earth did those women keep their tiny waists?  Oh, we've been over that.  Waist cinchers and girdles.  Ugh.  NOOOOOOOOOO!  I'm sick to death of squeezing my innards!

Food is the universal language.  Forget love, it's food.  We all eat.  I know I LOVE to eat.  Being a "non practicing diabetic" has gotten me to the lovely shape that I am.  Hey!  0 is a shape.  Round is a shape people!

So, I've been making some serious changes.  Um, ok let me rephrase that.  I've been making some small changes that have made a HUGE impact.

No, I'm not on about my excercise program again.  This is changing my attitudes toward food and how I eat.  Tiny changes that have left me feeling full but NOT leaving me starving or craving things.  (Hello mr. donut!!!)

It takes 8 weeks.  Tiny changes to what you already eat, no expensive foods that you can only find in some remote, dark, frightening, store.  Regular food.  Not dieting. Just changes. 

Since I am totally going to be in this bathing suit by summer, I have to make these little tiny adjustments.

I'm actually starting a group on facebook to give the step by easy step instructions!  Want to join?  No, I'm not selling you anything.  I'm not charging you anything.  Just sharing the info I have that is so totally working for this food lover.

Here is the link to my FB page.  Just click the LIKE button under the post about the group (I pinned it to the top so you can't miss it) and I'll add you to the group so you can do this step by step with me.

I bet you lose more than you thought and...that it's way easier than you thought! 

Are you up for it?  Hmmm....I need to buy that hair flower and some cute shoes to go with this suit!
