Thoughts and Random Pics Thursday

This week has been busy, to say the least.
Not the best at times either.
Sobering news as I found out that a friend and co-worker on our team has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The 3rd woman on our team to have such a diagnosis in the past couple of years.
I'm so tired of all this cancer mess!
Why can't someone find a cure???!!
Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

On to better news..
My week started out with a half of the King Cake from our Super Bowl party left over.
I brought it to work and it was devoured in a couple of short hours.
The person who got the baby charm in the cake thought it meant she was going to have a baby and freaked out.
I assured her that it only means she has to throw the next party or bring the next cake.
 Moving on to Monday night when I got together with other fellow Charlotte bloggers.
I had met them all before so it was nice to catch up again.
from LtoR.
 A little wine on a Monday is never a bad thing.
On Tuesday, I picked up this gaudy little vest that I have packed to wear on our ski vacation -- which we leave for today!!
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I got out of the office and went into the field for a production.
Always fun!
Interviewing people and learning new things.
(No, I don't use the camera - I work with a photographer)
I haven't cooked once this week except for making kale chips last night.
Instead we've snacked around and went out to eat once at Charlotte's British Pub, Big Ben.
The first time we've been there since it moved to its new location.
Brad enjoyed the fish n' chips.
And, I was semi-good ordering a salad.
Yes, those are a lot of won tons on there but I assure you I took a majority of them off because otherwise it would have just been a big bowl of won tons!
Like, I mentioned, we leave today for our Park City vacation.
We are super excited!
We're going to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary and Valentine's Day while we're there!
Believe it or not, it's almost 3-years ago to the day that Brad and I went on our first trip ever together to Lake Tahoe to ski.
Check out this picture.
And, look what I found last night while packing.
My lift ticket from that trip.
I immediately put into a scrapbook.
I'm sentimental like that!
So, I'll be offline until next week!
Stop by then for what I'm am sure will be pictures galore!
Happy Thursday everyone!!

I had the best conference call last night with Bright Pink - I feel so empowered by their speakers and literally was up all night thinking about the message - how life IS totally different - thoughts change - desires change - and no more IF's but just DO IT - and I have ALL the power - to tell who I want, how to treat it - and how to deal with dealing with passing those gene onto my children - in blessed I have the loved ones around me n and amazing boyfriend who is by my side on my worst days and the change in my body - and still thinks I'm the most beautiful girl in the world -- I'm faithful that there WILL be a cure SOON!!! We've come along way! It's gonna happen --- much love n bliss to ur friend - if she wants someone to talk to please give her my email and we can chat - I'm sure she's dizzy with emotions!!!!!
