Because this is important to me... :)

Saw this on Michelle's blog today... and it made me cry... living in "The Valley of the Sun" (yes, that is Phoenix, Arizona's nickname)... it really hit home... and with Brookie having been born with Port Wine Stains, she has been wearing a hat since she was born and she has 50 SPF sunscreen on her skin EVERY TIME we go outside... as her skin is more sensitive than most... I hope this has the impact on you as it did me......



Also...Michelle tagged me with the Versatile Blogger Award! :)

And with this award... I am to list 5 things about me :)

1)  I am a Law and Order fanatic!!! I even have the "ba-bum" sound as my text message ringtone! LOL! :)
2) I wasn't always a Twilight freak! *wink* ... I actually resisted the books until my 57 year old friend brought the first book, "Twilight" to me and 'made' me read it... I read it in less than a day...and have been a "Twi-geek" every since! :)
3) My favorite color is Pink... but yet I hardly scrap with it! :)
4) As mentioned in my post yesterday... I am a BIG WIMP when it comes to doctor/dentist things... I had a tumor operated on (well, I have had eight surgeries total on this tumor... anyhoo...)... one time after a surgery, I asked a nurse if my stitches were covered, and she said YES... I turned to look at it... it was UNCOVERED and my stitches were exposed to me...ONE LOOK and I threw up... all over the nurse... that will teach her to lie to a patient! LOL! :):):)
5)  Because I have a son that is 14 and a daughter that is 4... I have been watching SpongeBob Squarepants longer than any human should... Just sayin'... lol :)

I am supposed to tag 5 people with this award... but I would love to see anyone who wants to grab it, take it... I would love to read some fun facts about you :):):):):):):):)

And real quick, I wanted to share a layout I made with Nikki Sivils "Summer" line and my brand new Cricut Expression! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)






And I want to thank everyone for their kind words on my post from last night... I truly appreciate the well wishes and sympathy for my teeth pain...as for my internet... it is looking like several of my new neighbors have complained about the same issue in our area... so it is still ongoing :(


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  4. I've been MIA from blog land since last week and am just reading through all of your posts. I hope you're recovered from the dentist. I have a high pain tolerance, but when it comes to my mouth and teeth I'm a total wimp too!

    I also do not envy you having to deal with Cox. Their phone tree is the worst I've ever had to deal with. I can only imagine how aggravated you must be by now!

    Hope your week gets better girly :)

  16. I just wish my parents had used SPF with me when I was little (wait, was there SPF in the 60s? Dunno) so I wouldn't have so much sun damage, ya know? My kids will never know a sunburn, and I love in SW FL... excellent message.
    Love your LO and hope your mouth is "all better."
    Hugs.

  22. LOVE the layout of Brookie with the beautiful banner! I totally empathise with your tooth pain - I had a root canal go wrong & take 18 months & twice monthly visits all that time to correct - now I am a bona fide terrified dental patient myself - having gone through natural childbirth I'll take that over dental pain any day...

  31. Cute LO. Thanks for the video, I am so glad I was obsessed with putting high SPF on my kids when they were growing up and will not allow them go to sun salons. My daughter is 21 now and still always uses high factors and won 't go on a sunbed because she knows I won't be happy.xxx
