Why a cure for type 1 diabetes is needed

Especially when things like this and this still happen.

Day 8: Have a beauty secret (e.g. hair tip, make up tip)? Share, please!

Who am I to give beauty tips?!? My fashion style would be considered classically comfortable. I am a wash and go kind of girl when it comes to my hair. I never wear make up. Heck, at my own wedding, I only wore mascara and some lip gloss. It might have only been chap stick! I do love the plain/original Burt's Bees chap stick lip balm. So perhaps I should just say my beauty secret is confidence. I am confident that the beauty I possess inside will shine through to the outside (if I have that inner beauty to shine).

That, and that Burt's Bees Beeswax "Lip Balm". :)

A blog to encourage another beautiful woman

My sister-in-law Teresa, with cutie pie Joslyn and her husband, J.

My sister-in-law Teresa is truly a beautiful woman in every sense of the word and I'm not just saying that because she reads this blog (doesn't hurt, but not my reason). She is a wonderful mother and so loving and caring toward her family. She is hardworking, yet easy going. Lover of animals, she fosters dogs while caring for her own dogs as well. She honors the Lord and has a relationship with Him. Read Proverb 31 and you'd get a good idea about what kind of a woman I see when I see Teresa. She's a wonderful, wonderful woman.

Teresa, I know things are/can be tough, but we see what a good job you are doing. Joslyn is so lucky to have such a woman as her mommy. She will grow up well, knowing she is loved. There is no way that she couldn't with the love you and J show her. Don't give up hope. Remember, you have me to help you remember that the answer is in a box on the table.

Love you guys. :) So, so much.

A blog thanking someone who has made your heart come alive.

I don't think my heart was truly alive until I met this guy named Timmy. His kindness towards friends, family, strangers, everybody. His love of God and Jesus. His goofy nature and talented drumming skills. I was one lucky lady when he asked me to marry him.

When I became part of his family, I became part of his family. His mother and sisters didn't hesitate to claim me as one of them. The two littles (Lucian and Joslyn) make me smile just thinking about their adorable little faces. I swear I have the best in laws, thanks to the Timmy.

The Timmy's love for me also keeps my heart feeling alive. When we said our wedding vows and said for better and for worse, neither one of us had any idea what our future held (or even still holds), but, with Timmy by my side (and God in my heart), I know everything will be okay.

Style 31. Post a pic of you in your favorite outfit.

Now imagine that stick figure drawing actually eats and is wearing a simple black fitted T shirt and a light brown corduroy skirt with black flip flops and you've got my favorite outfit. I usually pair this with either a blue jean jacket or a white denim jacket. And, of course, my silver/ white gold cross necklace.

My stick figure self looks a little like Liz Lemon. Huh.

Type 1 vs. Type 2 Diabetes

This is a long video (around 10 minutes), but it explains a good bit.

Check it out if... well, just check it out.
