2 Bizzee 2 Blog!

Anybody out there? Have you wondered where I've been? Well, I spent a week in Arizona - 3 days of it walking 60 miles in the Komen 3-Day for the Cure! The weather was spectacular. Here I am crossing the finish line - proud to have walked the entire 60 miles!

My Trekkin' for Ta-Tas teammates were as great as I expected - we had such a fun time, and I'm glad to have finally met these friends who I've known on-line for several years.

We slept (or didn't sleep much) in pink tents . . . . everyone slept in pink tents, so they recommended decorating your tents so you could find them. Of course, since we are all cat ladies, I blinged out our tents as cats!

The Crew on the walk were so funny - most of the crossing guards were men, and they all dressed up in big bras and pink outfits!

Here we our in our victory shirts and getting ready for the closing ceremony.

Both the opening and closing ceremonies were very emotional - especially when the survivors who had walked paraded out.

This was an experience I'll never forget. All the training and preparation were worth it, and I encourage everyone to add this event to your list of things you need to do at least once in your lifetime!

After being home a few days, I got a terrible sinus and ear infection and spent most of the week sleeping while my hubby continued to take care of the cats! I'm still talking a little like Barry White, but I'm feeling better and trying to get caught up on all my Etsy shop orders and Christmas stuff.

Glad you're finally feeling better, Barry!

So glad I got to finally meet you in person!

Do you still feel like you need to be doing something to get ready for the walk, or is that just me? Did you sign up for next year, yet? Yeah, me neither!
