Thank-you all so much for the prayers for my sister Barb! They worked! She made it through the surgery just fine, although she was very sore. She now has her drains out & was able to return to work yesterday, a mere 2 weeks after her surgery! She is definitely a trooper! She's not sure when she starts chemo yet, but the other day, she went to get her hair cut & donated her hair to Locks Of Love. How awesome is that!!! I'm SO proud of her & her strength!

The other day, I decided to stroll into Michaels just to see if they had anything new & I almost cried when I saw this on an endcap. And Xyron is donating 50 cents from each purchase to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. So yep, you guessed it.....I had to bring this little ribbon home :)

Isn't she adorable?!? Yeah, I already had the original Xyron X, but I just couldn't resist this one. Now, I only wish I had to money to buy the new PINK Cricut Expressions Machine! Darn, darn, DARN! I want that thing SO BAD! But I just cannot justify buying it since my Cricut isn't even a year old. WHY do they do these things after you already buy them.....WHY???

Thanks again for all the prayers.....I knew I could count on my friends!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Oh, Benita! I am hope happy to hear that good news! I have been praying for your sister and your family every night!

I think I may have to get that ribbon for myself!

GREAT news! :-)
Love that Xyron! I haven't seen it around here yet.

Great news about your sister.

I already have that Xyron but if I see on the next time I'm at Michael's I'm going to pick one up. I too have been affected by breast cancer and it is the number one "cause" for me. Emily (my 15 year old) has discovered she loves to scrapbook so I can pass along my old Xyron. It's a win win situations.

Hey Benita! Long time no blog-see. I'm such a bad visitor. You've been on my mind though. Good to know you are doing okay. Sorry to hear about your sister, but so glad she's sailed through her surgery. Hey, maybe your body needs to rest for a while and form a new set-point. Why don't you keep up the gym and healthy eating but just try to maintain? You look amazing! xoxo
